Greetings, I have just returned from Lesbos were we stayed in Petra for the first time in 14 years.
We have been going to this Jewel in the crown for 14 years & are never let down. The Nakellis is run by a greek family who look after the propery & the gardens with love & care.
We spent 3 weeks & had a brill holiday. I cannot recommend it highly enough both the Nakellis & Lesbos in general.
Having travelled extensively around the world, i always look forward to my time in Lesbos.
Please bear with me while i have a rant for a moment.
Thomson holidays (thursday flights) pulled out of Lesbos this year leaving about 10,000 people per season trying to get onto the only 2 flighs left per week. The result is that these 10,000 people have joined the other 10,000 who fly with Thomas Cook (saturday flights). This great demand has made it almost impossible to get to Lesbos from the UK. I have had to book 12 months in advance in order to get to Lesbos next year. Thomson Holidays have tried to get Lesbos to go all-inclusive but it won't have it, so they pulled out. This has meant a loss of some 20,000,000 euros per season. The island is suffering as a consequence with lots of empty studios & hotels. We are praying that some company takes up the demand for this jewel & we can get there a lot easier. (If you clik on the T.Cook sight it jumps to 2013 as Lesbos is sold out for 2012 such is the demand).
Thank You for listening to this story. You can climb Everest but it is harder to get to Lesbos.
Peace & Love
