Luxury Villas Samos
Samos is the most visited island of the North-Eastern Aegean Islands, keeping nevertheless its beauty and calm places. Samos is a particularly green island which has kept a big part of its impressively green forests. It is an island with unique natural beauties which combines history and tradition with it. Samian wines have won prestigious international and domestic awards. Samos is also known for its folk art and produces beautiful pottery, ceramics, rugs, bags made of goat wool and woven fabrics with beautiful designs and colours and which are made on local looms. The capital is on the northeast side of the island of Samos. Built amphitheatrically along the perimeter of a large bay, next to the harbour, it pleasantly predisposes the visitor with its Aegean colour, its neoclassical coastal zone and the beautiful beaches that surround it.
Samos is close to Asia Minor and is only separated from Turkey by the narrow strait of Mykali. From the north coast of the island you can see Turkey opposite. Samos is one of the larger Greek islands. The island is mountainous: there are two large mountain ranges, the Kerkis (1,437 metres) and the Ambelos (1,150 metres). From the latter you have a good view of Agios Konstandinos and the surrounding area. The island is very bushy, especially the north coast is lush with vegetation: trees alternating with vineyards. Samos has beaches in abundance - Karlovasi, Samos, Megalo Saitani and Mikro Saitani to name but a few. They are mostly in sheltered bays, which breaks the swell and the water warms up faster in spring. The "hinterland" of the island is perfect for hiking. The island of Samos, like almost all Greek islands, has many interesting churches, monasteries and chapels.
