Samos, Greece is perfect for holidaymakers of all ages

by | Feb 26, 2019 | Holiday

Samos is a fantastic holiday destination for visitors of any age. Its unspoilt beaches, ancient sites and rural villages provide a unique view of typical Greek lifestyles. If you’ve never been to Samos before some potential highlights of any visit are discussed below.

Food and drink

Samos offers holidaymakers a relaxing lifestyle, with plenty of opportunities to sample the local Vathy wine, traditional yoghurts and cheeses. If you enjoy sampling local dishes, you’re sure to appreciate some of the seafood menus offered in local tavernas and restaurants, but don’t neglect trying out the delicious local moussaka and stuffed tomato dishes either.

Things to do

Active holidaymakers will find hiking around Samos offers a unique glimpse of this gloriously mountainous island. The island is swathed in greenery at any time of year and walkers will appreciate the varying landscapes of the imposing mountains and the opportunity to learn more about the natural habitat. Walking from Votsalakia in Marathocampus takes hikers along the peak of Mount Kerkis to the peak of Mount Vigla and there are plenty of opportunities to examine species of rare plant and native birds of prey.

Greek history lovers will really enjoy exploring the church of Panagia Sarandaskaliotissa, which is situated at the entrance to Pythagoras’ Cave, and was the mathematician’s refuge at the time he was persecuted by the tyrant Polycrates.

Beach lovers will discover the fine sandy beaches of Samos are superb for relaxation, with the azure ocean glimmering in sunlight and a spectacular mountainous backdrop.

Cyclists discover Samos offers a variety of opportunities for mountain biking. The sport is becoming increasingly popular with tourists and locals, so a variety of local trails make it easy to explore the island by bike.

Birdwatchers will adore the fact that visits to Samos offer opportunities to watch herons, Dalmatian pelicans and pink flamingos as they pursue their migrations.

"It was great to work with the Halcyon team. They have a great product, excellent rates of return, and an engagement strategy that at once informs and reassures investors of the Halcyon value proposition. After sales support, and payment, have been fast and efficient. The Halcyon team is doing a great job and I have recommended to them to both my friends and professional colleagues."

"We have just finalized our purchase with Halcyon and I must say that this would not have been possible without the professionalism and the quality of service of their sales department. Having only one contact from start to finish was a big plus for us. Our contact, Serkan, was able to answer all our questions and uncertainties and was able to show extreme flexibility in the choice of the final product. He never tried to pressure us and was very understanding."

"Nous venons de finaliser notre achat avec Halcyon et je dois dire que cela n'aurait pas été possible sans le professionalisme et la qualité de service de leur service commercial. Le fait d'avoir à faire qu'à un seul et même contact du début à la fin a été un gros plus pour nous. Notre contact, Serkan, a su répondre à toutes nos questions, incertitudes et a su faire preuve d'extrème flexibilté dans le choix du produit final. Il n'a jamais essayé de nous mettre la pression et a été très compréhensif."
