On the north of Samos, between Karlovassi and Kokkari you can find the Valley of the Nightingales and, at the top, the village of Manolates. About one mile after turning off the main road to the Valley of the Nightingales, you will find a parking area opposite a taverna. From here you can walk around this beautiful valley.
In the narrow streets of Manolates driving a car is not allowed. Many of the houses were decorated with flower pots and there are also a number of traditional houses with bay windows. The main street of the village has most of the tavernas and shops.
