I am off to Samos in February with my 14y daughter. Would like some info on the weather as well as would like to know if the shops and cafes/restaurants are open at the end of Feb, since it is not a tourist season at the time :) Basically, how warm clothes should we take with us :) On average, any change of seeing the sun during the last two weeks in February?
Was wondering if anyone can give guidance as to current typical costs, especially for Pythagorion, so I can work out a suitable travel budget? I am particularly interested in prices for 1 or 2 course meal, bottle of wine, water, beer, average cocktail prices, costs of boat trips, museum fees, sun lounger charges etc Thanks.
we are planing a wedding in samos and it's really hard to find vennues online.. there aren't many places that have websites and not many pictures. does anyone out there have any recomemdations of venues? if you have some pics that would be great too!
we don't need a big place, should be about 50 people.
I'm trying to decide which prepaid debit card to take out for our forthcoming trip to Kokkari. My choice depends on whether I can use Mastercard in restaurants or will need to draw cash from an ATM, on a frequent basis, to pay our bills. The FairFX card has a better exchange rate but charges for ATM withdrawal while the CaxtonFX card doesn't have such a good exchange rate (yesterday it was €5.75 less per £500 than the FairFX one) but doesn't charge €1.50 per ATM withdrawal.
Ive checked with ferry companies and schedules aren't out as yet. But im going to be in Samos until the 24th of July 2008. I wanted to know how frequent ferries will be to Mykonos. People have suggested i wait but then i cant exactly go ahead and book my accomodation in mykonos. Any suggestions?
leaving for Samos July 12 and looking for studio/apt. on the water. we enjoy pebbly coves and snorkling
We did read from somewhere that the sea can be cold in Ireon beach...
So do you know/think is the water also cold in Pythagorion beach or in Potokaki beach? And why the water is cold in ireon beach?
But the water is clean + blue/azur in these (ireon + Potokaki + Pythagorion) beaches?
Has anyone been in Ireon village?
How is the village?
Is there any shops/grocery shops in the village?
How is the beach? Is it shallow/good to swim (not very deep suddenly/no big waves or currents)?
is there any scooter rentals in the Ireon village?
Is it easy to get to the Pythagorion?
Is the airport too close (is very noicy area since there are the airport so close)?
Any good walks around Samos, especially the Pythagorion area?
I want to go from Samos to Mykonos and back anytime in august. I've visited some web pages with schedules but they are different in each page, some say that there is daily connection and another says that only three times a week. Can anyone living there or been there tell me the schedule for the direct connection between Samos and mykonos? Is it daily or just some days a week? And also between Mykonos and Samos. Thank you very much in advance
The Rough Guide to the Greek Islands says the best beaches on Samos are on the western part of the island, but looking at a map it looks like most of the west coast is not accessible by car as there don't appear to be any roads there. What are the best beaches on the island, where are they, and how do I get to them?
