Over forty years I have been a repeat visitor to Greece innumerable times, and I truly can’t remember a nicer hotel than the Sea Horse. It could not be more beautifully situated than right in Molyvos’s charming and colorful harbor. What a delight to watch the fisherman in their brightly colored skiffs putt-putt-putting around or look from overhead at the amusing wharf scene. The owners did a major renovation last year and everything about it has been well done: the tile floors, nice wood furniture including a good desk, the fixtures, everything. I worried that the harbor scene might be too noisy at night but not at all. You don’t hear it unless you step onto the balcony, and then it’s Greece’s background song of fishermen and restauranteurs doing their thing with the mellow plucking of a bouzouki in the background. From the balcony you see nothing but quintessential Greece: old village buildings, a colorful harbor, the blue blue Aegean, and the coastline of the island fading into the distance. Could not be a better romantic getaway or writer’s retreat.
