THE LOCATION

LESVOS

The island of poets and love, of Sappho, Alkaios, Pittakos, Myrivilis, Venezis and Elytis whose poetry mirrors the greatness of the world.  “A plane leaf thrown to the Aegean Sea”, gifted green land, “a gift from God” for its residents, that stands between east and west.

MANDAMADOS

A particularly beautiful, picturesque mountain community at the NE tip of Lesvos. Renowned for its medieval Monastery of Holy Archangels. Famous for its pottery, especially the ewers made the same way for more than one hundred years, the coil and branches, signifying the values of friendship and peace, that was the inspiration for the MYSTAKELLI logo. Celebrated for its significant animal farming and quality cheese products it is also the seat of the MYSTAKELLI company.
