Keen sailors and windsurfers will notice the wide-open bay with the wind at their back. Mountain bikers will notice the trails in the hills on their way in. But everyone will remember the warm welcome and the long, sandy beach in the lovely corner of Lesvos.
Neilson Aeolian Village Beachclub is super-chilled out. You won’t feel rushed into doing anything while you’re here, even though there’s so much on offer.
Hotel rooms are close to all of the main beachclub facilities, including the pool, restaurant, and beach. With twin, double and interconnecting rooms you’ll find something that suits you.
Alternatively, the hillside rooms have great views across the resort to the sea beyond. They are a bit of a walk from the pool and beach, but the peace and quiet you’ll get is a real bonus. There’s a combination of steps and slopes to reach the rooms, so if your mobility isn’t great or you have young children, you may be better checking out the hotel rooms.
Food and Drink
Neilsons Aeolian Village holidays include board – daily breakfasts, lunches and four evening meals per week. From buffets to BBQs their chefs work tirelessly to provide a wide range of delicious food.
The pool bar has a relaxed vibe, sink back into one of the comfy sofas and enjoy a refreshing cool drink or cocktail. The pool bar also serves bar meals for your non-inclusive evenings or you could pop out to some of the local bars and tavernas in Skala Eressos.
On the water
Take your pick from windsurfing, dinghy sailing, stand up paddleboarding and kayaking it’s great for water sports here and they are all included.
The consistent offshore winds flatten the way in the bad and also provides enough power (typically force 3-5) for some seriously good windsurfing or sailing later in the day, with beginner and intermediate windsurfing tuition available.
On the shore
We include mountain biking with guided rides, tennis coaching and a weekly timetable of fitness and stretch classes on your holiday to Neilson Aeolian Village Beachclub.
The hills around the beachclub are full of trails for mountain bikers of all abilities. Their guided rides offer something for all levels and abilities – with just enough of a challenge if you want it. You can also take a bike out on your own, you can check out some of the favourite routes on Strava.
Back at the beachclub, there is three floodlit tennis courts and offer inclusive tennis and coaching that’s open to everyone and you can use the courts for free-play when not being used for group tuition. At the end of the week, there’s usually a tournament and don’t forget to come along to ‘booze and balls’ for some light-hearted fun and games on the courts.
The wind typically picks up around midday, blowing on-shore most days with cross on-shore conditions on windier days. The typical wind force ranges from 3-4 with the most consistent conditions in June, July and August.
Rest and Relaxation
If relaxing is your thing, you’ll love the feeling of space and the wellness area with three treatment rooms. There’s also a Finnish style sauna, hydrobath, and outdoor massage area. The facilities are free to use but are even better when you book sports or relaxation treatments (treatments are at a supplement). Pre-book the one-hour spa package before you travel and you’ll enjoy savings on the in-resort prices.
Rich in tradition, history, and culture, Lesvos is the third largest of the Greek Islands. The landscape is one of extremes, from areas of pine-covered hillside to swathes of hot therapeutic springs and a petrified forest, with fossilised trees dating back some 15 million years!
With claims to their medicinal properties, the springs have been used for thousands of years to help cure aches and pains. Well worth a visit after an action-packed week of activities.
A real highlight of a holiday to the Aeolian Village has to be the local village of Skala Eressos. It’s at the other end of the bay, just a ten-minute stroll along the beach. The restaurants built on the stilts over the sea add to the relaxed, bohemian vibe of the village. Rich in history – with ruins of a castle and acropolis – this was also the birthplace of famous poet Sappho!
Mytilini, the capital of Lesvos, is a bustling harbour town. Its streets are lined wit beautiful mansion houses in the Venetian style, giving the town a distinct air of grandeur. There is also a Museum of Modern Artworks by Picasso and Matisse, as well as a Byzantine castle which hosts various cultural events during summer months. An ancient theatre in the north of the town has been likened to that of grand Epidavros.
