|Hotels, apartments, studios, villas and holiday houses on the island of Samos in Greece|
Most of the hotels, apartments and guesthouses on Samos are in the coastal villages like Pythagorion and Kokkari, but also in the capitol of Samos, Vathi, and in other villages along the coastline there are hotels. All these hotels, with the exception of the 4 and 5 star hotels, are usually not very expensive. We were looking for nice hotels on Samos for the month of May in 2007 (1 week). The hotels that we usually go for are the smaller hotels, preferably with a seaview. A quiet location is a big plus. A studio or an apartment with a kitchen(block) inside would be the ultimate best. We have an open mind to any hotel where-ever on the island of Samos, but our first thoughts went to a hotel in Kokkari or Pythagorion. A quiet small holiday-house / villa in the middle of nowhere also sounds to our taste. These are the hotels on Samos that we ended up visiting or that we like the look of.

|Hotels on Samos island: Studios Ioanna in Limnionas - Samos - very, very nice!!!|
Another hotel that we thought looked really interesting (and actually is!) were the Studios Ioanna in Limnionas. It's not really a hotel but more a small complex of 6 large studios, each with a seperate living space and sleeping space. They all have a kitchen and a coffee machine :). Limnionas is a small village with some houses spread over the green hills and the valley, with in the backdrop the mountain Kerkis. It is situated all the way on the other side of the island Samos, in the southwest. It has got its own beautiful large beach and it is closer to the naturist beaches. Here is where we had planned to spend the last few days of our holiday on Samos in peace. This is also a place we've returned to and plan to return to many, many more times, because it is so fantastic. The real Greece as you imagine it to be, with the peace and quiet, but also with a bit of fun, the friendly people and the nice, quiet sandy beaches. Have your handkerchiefs on stand by if you have to leave. One of my absolute favorite destinations. And Ioanna, the owner of this small complex is just the funniest and the sweetest person on the planet.

Above are the pictures I have made of the Studios Ioanna and the beach while I stayed there (several times now because we loved it so much we go back regularly). The place is very easy to find. When you drive into the village it is in the beginning of the village on the left side of the road clearly signed.
Limnionas attracts a special kind of people: the ones that are looking for the old and authentic Greece. They come for the peacefulness and not for the nightlife and the bars. A lot of them are young backpackers and people that like to be a bit more adventurous and like to walk and explore the nature and find quiet (or empty) beaches on the way.
More pictures and information about Limnionas and the beaches around the village you can find on the Limnionas page - (click here) and there are also a lot of nice pictures and more information on the website of Studios Ioanna in Limnionas that is made by the webmaster Jimmie.
