House in Samos

Our house in Samos

Fully equipped two-storey house, built into the mountainside an ancient village, Ano Vathi, a ten minute walk to Samos Town and an excellent position to visit all Samos has to offer. A perfect blend of old world location and modern living. Gatwick and most European airports fly directly to Samos.

Known for its tiny winding stone paved streets and traditional Greek way of living, Ano Vathi overlooks the more cosmopolitan Samos Town which is in easy reach should you tire of the 'getaway from it all' atmosphere.

It is not unusual to feel as though you have slipped back in time when you see an old man leading his donkey through the village or hear birds and church bells on a still, warm afternoon. The village has a very different atmosphere from the bustling town with its vegetable market, fisherman selling their catch, designer shops, bars and tavernas.                 

About the house

The house which is set over two storeys has thick stone walls which make it cool in summer and easily heated in winter. It is one of the few properties in the village which has a garden. This provides a private area for sunbathing or barbequing and is planted with lemon and mandarin trees which offer welcome shade from the summer sun.

Entering the house through the courtyard, the upstairs has a comfortable lounge, modern fitted kitchen (2013) and dining area. It has an open fireplace with wood burning stove which heats the house in winter. In the summer the cross ventilation from the dual aspect shuttered windows ensures that the room doesn’t get too hot.

The downstairs offers an extremely spacious bedroom with ample wardrobe space. The room is large enough to accomodate two people in the double bed and another single person on the additional fold-up bed. There is a travel cot for infants.
