Arriving at Terra Zoe

After rather a long day filled with buses and airports, we were delighted when we finally reached Terra Zoe. We were given a taste of our week to come when we were greeted with flocks of sheep blocking the road down to the hotel!


We were welcomed by a delicious home-cooked dinner, complete with octopus rice, local lamb, and beautifully fresh salads. The emphasis at Terra Zoe is on local produce, either grown in the hotel’s own grounds or bought from the ladies at the markets. We left dinner feeling well fed, and retreated to our beautiful room for a good night’s sleep. Our room is next to the yoga studio, and has a terrace with views across the sea to Lesbos. It’s a huge room, with a sitting room and small kitchen as well as the bedroom and bathroom. It is very light and crisp, decorated with wonderful Turkish antiques which give the place an authentic but very tasteful feel. We went to sleep eager to explore the area in the morning.
