Hiking around the Hotel

The island of Samos is well known for the traditional mountain villages. Surrounded by mountain vineyards, these villages kept their architecture untouched and offer the visitor a unique experience of how the settlements of the island used to be. There are multiple trails in the area between the villages. The paths are stone paved and of great natural beauty.The following images show what can be seen while  walking around the area of the Hotel.
