Glancing upwards, the original oak beamed roof supports have been superbly restored to complete the wonderful ambience of the old house.
At the far end of the old stone cottage, an opening leads into small corridor and the newer extended part of the house. Off one side, a sumptuous bathroom (4.5 x 3m) seizes the imagination and reaches the high expectations of luxurious living. Mosaic tile flooring and ceramic designs provide the backdrop for a Jacuzzi, bidet and full size vanity top/inbuilt sink, supplemented with bespoke wooden bathroom furniture and cabinets.

To complete the picture, absolutely all fixtures, fitting and furniture, all of which remain in superb condition, are included in the sale price. This extends to the ornamental features in the garden which include antique storage vessels and a 200 year old weighing machine.
Ippeos is one of Lesvos’ lesser known magical villages. It nests between the lower slopes of Mount Olymbus and the shores of the Gera gulf. The area is fed by mountain streams year round and the surrounding area is probably the most verdant part of the island. Not far away, the Gera gulf offers extensive beaches with numerous fishing ports, villages and eateries dotted along its coast. Opposing this, the slopes of mount Olymbos provide walking, cycling and riding trails which penetrate the age old olive groves and forests, so full of surprises and natural beauty spots.

In terms of travel, Ippeos is central and excellently located for accessing the whole island. Mytiline and the international airport are around 20 minutes drive. Finally, a few kilometers away on the coast, one of the finest thermal hot spring establishments on Lesvos, offers relaxation, therapy and a cool place to pamper oneself.
