Built on the quiet Gulf of Gera, far from the heavily developed tourist resorts, Aeolis is a place for peace and quiet. It is located 23 kilometres from the island's airport and 20 kilometres from its capital and port of Mytilene.
Just 100 metres from the residences, there is a quiet little harbour, where you can buy fresh fish from the fishing boats that dock there. The bakery and mini market will supply you with fresh bread and other essentials. Alternatively, you can sit back at the picturesque tavernas offering traditional food right by the sea.
Aeolis is located a short distance from picturesque villages with welcoming squares where you'll never go hungry:
Perama. The port for the villages of Gera. The chimneys of its stone buildings are a living reminder of the industrial development of this port town.
Palaiokipos. Located at an altitude of 150 m and with the many gardens that gave this village its name. Here you'll find the house in which Khair ad Din, better known as Barbarossa, was born in 1475. Barbarossa was an admiral of the Ottoman Empire and a privateer.
Papados. Traditional houses and manors grace this lively village. Don't miss the Vrana Olive Press Museum built in 1887 by Nikolaos Vranas, Greek poet Odysseas Elytis's grand-father.
Mesagros. A minaret with a Christian cross and a bakery with paintings by Theofilos await visitors in this picturesque village.
Skopelos. If you get tired crossing the charming village paths, relax at one of the the small traditional cafés. You will be enchanted by its main square.
