About our home

We welcome you to our “jewel” in the charming small village of Ano Vathy, on the island of Samos, in the Greek archipelago.

*Please note that both houses are included in all swaps/bookings.*

During the last 7 years, we have carefully refurbished the houses and the terraces and made sure to renew and improve without losing the original charm.
The property consists of two houses, one smaller (the Guesthouse) and one slightly larger (the Main house). There is a beautiful garden with olive and lemon trees and three stone paved terraces with a magnificent view over the village and, to the northwest, the Aegean Sea.

In the Main house, on the lower floor facing the terrace, is the kitchen. Here’s is also a dining table for up to 8 persons. In the back, a staircase leads to the back room with a bunk bed (the bunk bed does not offert full privacy) and the bathroom facing the alley between the houses. On the upper floor is the master bedroom. In the Main house, you will find a 2-hot plates stovetop, microwave oven, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, and AC.

The Guesthouse faces its own terrace with a large orange tree that offers comforting shade from the blistering sun. Inside the house are two beds and a minibar for cold drinks. The bathroom is accessed from the outside and offers a shower with an optional village view.

The whole property is situated on a terrace, some 3 meters above a small and very quiet street without traffic, in the old picturesque village, high above the more lively Samos town.

There is a car parking 2 min walk from the house by the Ai Yiannaki theater. From here you can have a nice stroll through the village along the main road leading down to the village square and the local restaurants and cafes.

A 15 min walk will take you to the center of Samos town, with its shopping streets, main square, museum, town garden and bus station.

There are many beaches on the island of Samos. Our favorite beaches are:
- the very child-friendly sandy beach of Psili Ammos (20 min by car)
- the "no-sand-between-your-toes", flat cobble beach of Mykali (15 min by car)
- the pebble beach of Kerveli (25 min by car)

Samos is a very safe island with a very low crime rate.

Kitchen and washing: 2-hotplates stovetop, microwave with grill, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine
Outside: Terrace, garden, barbecue
Local activities: Diving, surfing, horse riding, tennis, water skiing, hiking, swimming, fishing

How to get here?
