A weekly program and weather forecast is hanging at the Votsala
reception. Join one of the several walks organised by Iannis or
a cooking class with Daphne. You will taste the nature and history
of Lesvos in a very personal way and you will discover places that
you wouldn’t find in any Lesvos guide book! The little money you
pay for those activities help all the Votsala staff to realize a
trip at the end of the season. We also need a holiday at the end
of the season!
Hire a car for three days and you can declare “ I’ve done Lesvos
“ when you return home. This is OK for your first visit to this
island. During your second visit to Lesvos you will do a little
more, the third time you will appreciate more details. On your fourth
visit you will look out for the wild orchids, the birds and the
caves and you will want to go back to some of the places you have
already visited…and so on…
We are located in the greenest part of the island covered by olive
and pine trees. Therefore walking is possible also in July/August.
Between the olive groves there are so many small roads and old paths
originally used only by the farmers.
Every Sunday: Votsala guests can join a cooking class with Daphne
and Nina. At 4:00 PM we start cooking, we arrange the tables, we
put the dishes in the oven and we… jump into the sea! Usually we
manage to serve dinner at 8:00.
