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.

It 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 village roofs. Next door to the house is one of the most treasured ‘Turkish’ style houses in Molyvos.

The house is sheltered with cool corners and a private balcony to work on that sun tan, or just watch the sun set. There's full air conditioning, so if the weather gets too hot you can escape to indoor comfort.

Captain’s View is a relaxing house with plenty of space. It is ideal for a family with three or four children or two couples sharing. It has two double bedrooms downstairs, each with an en-suite bathroom - one has a big spa bath, the other a shower. Built-in cupboards provide plenty of drawers and hanging space for clothes. The settee in the living room upstairs can be folded out to provide additional sleeping accommodation, and above the kitchen and dining area is an attic den for siestas, reading and TV watching. The sitting area in this den can also convert to provide still more sleeping accommodation.

The spacious and well-equipped kitchen has a full sized cooker, a microwave oven, a spacious fridge/freezer and a dishwasher. There’s plenty of crockery, cutlery and all the kitchen utensils required for self-catering. Bed linen, bath towels and beach towels are all provided. A small utility room houses an automatic washing machine. In the living area adjacent to the kitchen there’s an eight place traditional wooden dining table. Take a tour of the house!

A telephone is provided with which you can make free local calls. For long distance calls, you will need a phone card. You can also use the phone line to connect your computer for narrowband Internet access (provided your computer has a modem, of course); a card can be purchased from the tobacconist providing 20 hours of Internet connection time, more than enough for staying in touch with friends and family and for sending those e-postcards!

Of course, you will probably quite often want to dine out in one of the many excellent restaurants and tavernas in the town. One popular restaurant in the picturesque harbour is the long established Captain’s Table, which specializes in fresh fish and is featured in The Rough Guide to The Greek Islands, the famous American Frommer’s, The Lonely Planet and many more international guide books. It’s owned and run by Melinda and Theo, the owners of Captain’s View.
