The Allure of Natural Beauty

In the heart of Lesvos, Anemotia boasts an awe-inspiring natural beauty that captivates the senses. The village lies on the east side of Mountain Kouratsonas, on the caldera of one of the old major volcanoes of the island, the one that created the Petrified Forest of Sigri million years ago. The rich in history village has beautiful cobbled streets, stone houses and panoramic views. The rocky but fertile mountains of the area are covered with olive trees, claimed by the local farmers to produce the most fragrant olive oil in Greece. Wander through the village's winding paths enveloped by vibrant wildflowers, immerse yourself in the fragrant olive groves, or simply take in the panoramic views of the surrounding mountains. The harmonious coexistence of lush greenery, rolling hills, and the azure Aegean Sea creates a serene ambiance that invites visitors to unwind and connect with the rhythm of nature.

It's worth visiting the Byzantine monastery of Voukoli (Monasterelli), which is dedicated to the Entry of the Virgin Mary, in an area with dense vegetation!!
