  H620 >>> Self - Sufficient Country Living in Skalohori 




Welcome to Linou. This is the name of our property and means THE BEAUTIFUL ONE in Greek. This is part of the Greek charme - they name their land in poetic ways.

The village elders also said that in the olden days, Linou was called the JEWEL OF LESVOS.Why? Well, first of all it is situated in a beautiful landscape with views to the surrounding (wooden) hills and to the Aegean Sea. Second, it was and still is famous for its unique apple called Firikia. Our village community gets first choice every autamn to buy our apples.

With every apple there is an old memory attached, how the people of the village (now in their 80s and 90s) played in Linou as children or even helped with the harvest. We have become part of that memory and part of the many beautiful stories.

The 'GARDEN' was created 90 years ago by the father of the previous owner and is made of 13 terraces. The orchard has 150 trees (apples, pears, plums, olives, figs, walnuts, almonds, quinces). We made the first 3 terraces (1000 m2) into our vegetable garden. And there is still more space for more trees and vegetables, even a vineyard.

Our own spring water comes from the depth of volcanic rock and is extremely delicious. It supplies water all year round and feeds our land and the 2 houses.

The rest of the land offers an ideal space for animal husbandry.
There are 2 stone houses.
The larger one, which is also the main house (75m2), is a fully restored sheep barn. It is well insulated and is equipped with a photo voltaic installation for electricity and solar panels for hot water. The house has a large kitchen, a spacious living room, one bedroom with shower and toilet, and a storeroom. Outside the living room is a terrace (24m2) which is half covered by a pergola.

We cook with gas and heat the house with wood. The winters are relatively mild here.

The smaller house (16m2) is also renovated and is used as a guesthouse. It has a kitchenette and the living/sleeping space sits on a wooden mezzaine and gives the open plan room a sense of space. The bath house (4m2) is next to the cottage and has a shower, wash basin and toilet. A small photovoltaic installation gives enough electricity to a fridge and the lights.

Everything is done according to organic standards, even the waste waters are treated with Effective Micro Organisms (EM), composted and then spread around the oak trees. We live here all year round with great joy and always something new to learn, like recognising and harvesting wild mushrooms, wild asparagus and horta(wild edible greens). We have learnt how to live a self-sufficient life (up to 80%) and even do our own repair jobs and maintenance.
