If you want to spend your holidays on a beautiful and unspoiled island, then you have to visit Samos. It’s a nice destination, with characteristics matching more to the mainland than to an Aegean island. Very green, with many nice villages, beautiful crystal clear water to swim in and very friendly citizens.
Ormos Marathokampou is one of those villages. Located on the west side of the island, less touristic but beautiful and cosy. In addition, like the rest of the island, this area doesn’t have big hotels with all inclusive holidays. It has plenty of small family accommodations, with very nice studios and apartments, very well equipped, clean and at the same time with all the modern facilities (wifi internet, satellite tv etc.). The owners are there for you and that makes you feel very welcome.
The village has nice restaurants, with fresh fish and homemade local delicacies. Car rentals, supermarket and bakeries are also available . The harbour is very beautiful with all the fishing boats and at the same time, the new marina which can host yachts and sailing boats gives another color to the area.
During summer there are many feasts taking place, like Saints Johns fire feast (22 of June), the Fisherman’s feast and the wine festival in August where free wine is given to all the people. With no doubt, choose Ormos Marathokampou as your next holiday destination, if you want to see the real colors of an original Greek island.
