LORIET HOTEL - THE OLD MANSION HOUSE - MYTILINI
Situated 2km from the capital city Mytilene, on the road to the Airport, we find the LORIET Hotel, 20 meters from the beach and within walking distance of the famous Terriade and Theofilos Museums.
The Mansion, one of the largest and most ornate of the Classic old Houses of the island stands prominent in its beautiful garden setting. Once the holiday home for a wealthy family who lived on the island, a venue for many social events and parties for the Aristocrats, of the area, this house played host to many wealthy and famous people. It has now been lovingly restored to once again cater for the customer that is looking for something special.
Care and attention was taken at the time of restoration to preserve as much as possible of the original home, and its decorative features. This has resulted in quite a unique and elegant Hotel.
A green garden of Eden where particular attention has been placed to preserve every tree possible, during building the complex, which has created a tranquil haven for many birds and squirrels. A collection of unusual plants over the years has also enhanced the wonderful gardens that surround the buildings. The Pines, which surround the pool area, are close to a Century old but still give welcome shade on those hot Greek summer days.
A feature of the Garden is the century old Oleander and Laurel Avenue once used by the Mansion's horse and carriage.
We at the LORIET Hotel feel we have created a place of beauty, and now invite you to visit us and enjoy its many features.
