Our Village Kontias

Kontias is located in a distance of about 3 km from our accommodation. It is one of the largest scenic villages of Lemnos with its pine-covered hill and traditional stone houses which own the characteristic local shade. Walking by the entrance of Kontias you will find some imposing historic windmills standing there for more than 200 years, fully harmonized with the picturesque village calling every passerby to stop and be rewarded with elements of their history. The village was originally by the sea but was abandoned due to a pirate’s invasion around 1600. In this old area the only thing remaining is the medieval castle with the name Paleokastro of Kontea. Strolling around Kontias’ beautiful little alleys under the old plane trees every visitor is able to deeply enjoy a meal, a cup of coffee or a refreshing drink at cozy shops. There are so many things to admire in this village. If you have a passion for art, your vacation should not miss a visit to the Gallery of Contemporary Balkan Art, where important works are hosted every year. In addition, it is impossible not to notice the unique constructed churches placed all around this village. The oldest one is the small church of Agios Ioannis Prodromos which is built like a fort with embrasures and old cannons. Last but not least, the impressive church dedicated to the birth of Christ which was burned but rebuilt with love and caring, definitely is worthy of a visit.
