We hired a car in the capitol of Lesbos, Mytilini, and headed up the coast.
Our goal was Molyvos – and don’t be confused with the ancient sign posting as the town was called Methymna; or is still called that, I could never really work it out.
Molyvos is one of the most enchanting villages that you will find on a Greek island. It clusters up the hill towards the (magnificent) Genoese castle, the stone houses crowding the cobblestoned streets that are draped in ancient wisteria vines.The fishing boats rock gently behind the sea wall of the harbour on the point, and in between all of this we found the wonderful hospitality of the restaurant called ‘Once Upon a Time in Molyvos’. I’m afraid to say that the restaurant may have been aptly named because Penny and Kosta are no longer in Molyvos and I believe they have moved back to Athens.
