Low cost Samos holidays take you to a pretty Greek island in the eastern Aegean Sea, only a mile from the Anatolia region of Turkey. At twenty-seven miles long and eight miles wide, it is a fairly small island dominated by two mountains, verdant hills, and large plains with olive groves and vineyards. It has a wonderful climate with long dry summers and mild winters. At the height of the season the mercury rises to the mid thirties. The island enjoys more than three hundred days of sunshine each and every year.
With so much to offer, Samos has wide appeal. The island is scattered with ancient monuments and ruins, medieval churches, and a stunning principle town. Its hundred miles of coastline has both pebbled and sandy beaches, and rocky coves and bays. The larger resorts provide a variety of water sports and the coves are ideal for snorkelling. Visit the charming fishing villages and traditional inland hamlets where little has changed over the decades. An atmosphere of relaxation pervades the air and is reflected in the pace of life. If you are looking for a peaceful retreat, a cheap Samos holiday will certainly it the bill. The island is known for its warm hospitality and both accommodation and service are good. Restaurants and tavernas abound, so there is plenty of choice. Local wines are as pleasing to the palate as they are to the pocket. Although you can find lively venues, nightlife is generally low key. While in Samos, you can take the short boat trip to Turkey and explore the archaeological ruins of Ephesus. The tiny island of Samiopouli, just over the water from Ireon, can also be easily reached. You can spend the day lazing on the soft sandy beaches and bathe in the clear waters. With only one taverna, it offers a wonderful retreat.
