LESBOS North - Molyvos

This special 24.000 m2 (six acres) property is located high in the rugged hills overlooking Molyvos (a traditional, picturesque village with many foreign visitors during spring and summer ) which is just km ( 2 miles) away, surrounded by olive groves and farming land.

It is a unique property, “one of its kind” with panoramic views of Molyvos and the dramatic medieval castle, built by the Byzantines and renovated by the Genoese Gattelusi. It is comprised of:

  • A 200 m2, multi levelled ‘guest house.’ This compact building consists of ten single rooms with individual bathrooms and kitchens, as well as a main kitchen and dining room.
  • a two – room house (about 50 m2) with a kitchen
  • an octagonal house (approx. 80 m2) with two rooms, a kitchen and a loft that affords an exceptional view of the surrounding country side and the town of Molyvos
  • A building (approx 120 m2) with a large multi-purpose room, two attached single rooms and a garage.

The total size of buildings on site is 460 m2. Further residential development is possible.

It boasts peace and tranquillity with a view totally uninterrupted by any other building structure. The landscaping intentionally excludes any asphalt roads – only natural pathways lead from one building to the other. The main road that links the property and Molyvos is paved. The main beach is just a few minutes from town and 2.5 miles (4.5 km) from the land.

The story of Karuna

The first owner bought the land in 1974 and never stopped improving it for the next 30 years. He landscaped it himself and decorated it with art materials imported from Nepal. It was used as a retreat named: ‘Karuna Retreat Centre’. It was one of the first Retreat Centres founded in Greece in the 70’s. It  was run as a non-profit organization and operated during the spring and summer season as a Retreat Centre for individuals or groups coming from all parts of the world to practise yoga, tai chi or silent meditation in these natural, serene surroundings.

For several years, both teachers and students would enthusiastically make pilgrimages to Karuna for their yearly courses or seminars, always leaving with a feeling of deep satisfaction

As such Karuna was pioneering in providing more contemplative surroundings for people seeking quiet, reflective holidays or workshops combined with their time off work. It ceased trading in 2006.
