Holiday Rental House
Situated in the heart of the village of Molyvos (also known as Mythimna) is Captain's View, a beautifully restored stone house retaining Molyvos tradition and with an eye for both Greek style and luxurious detail. Captain's View is a couple of minutes from the 'agora' (market), the bakery and a well stocked grocery. Imagine newly baked bread, croissants or baguettes, fresh fruit, yoghurt and local honey for breakfast on the balcony. The views from the balcony, sitting room and main bedroom make words like 'spectacular', 'awesome', 'magnificent' and 'magic' seem totally inadequate. It's one's private access to a panorama of natural beauty, a wide bay, the harbour with its yachts, small craft and colourful fishing vessels, distant islands and mountains, and just below, the tiles of the old ...Situated in the heart of the village of Molyvos (also known as Mythimna) is Captain's View, a beautifully restored stone house retaining Molyvos tradition and with an eye for both Greek style and luxurious detail.

This is a holiday for people who want to imerse themselves in a Greek village but still stay in a quiet area. For self catering (breakfast on the veranda) getting up when one wants. Watching the sunrise (if you are awake) and the sunset from the balcony.More

About the neighbourhood
Molyvos has everything you need: plenty of shops for groceries and souvenirs, cafes and restaurants, a few funky late night bars, banks, currency exchanges, newsagents, internet cafés and pharmacies. There is a two kilometre long pebble (and sand) beach, its own farms and olive groves, and is close to mountain villages and other attractive sea side and mountain beauty spots. There are regular buses to nearby coastal villages like Avlaki , Eftalou (a hot springs centre) and Petra with its church high on a rock outcrop and long sandy beach.
