This historic building in the heart of Eressos was built in 1850 to house the family of Galinos. Galinos, the most prominent merchant and businessman in West Lesvos in the 19th century and the forefather of the Galinos family, whose members include prominent politicians, doctors, merchants and entrepreneurs. In the 1900's the house was passed on to Galinos' daughter. Despina did not have any children of her own, therefore she passed it over to her nieces Elpida & Niki Galinou. Elpida & Niki decided to sell the building in the 1950s and moved to mainland Greece to live in Athens.
It was in 2009 that Niki's grandson Alex, bought the family house back and embarked on an incredible and very personal restoration project. Returning this beautiful and historic building to its former glory and thereby marking its 170th anniversary with a new start and a new era in its life as a stunning Boutique Hotel which will open its doors to our customers in 2020. We look forward to welcoming you very soon.

The last houses of the village are found around the natural port of Eressos where you will find nice seaside taverns, bars & cafes. A couple of kilometres from the village is Skala Eresssou, a fine beach with sunbeds and umbrellas.
