Six of us first went to the Nikos Apartments in Sami last year in 2007 and had such a nice stay we all decided to go again this year. We've only just returned from the most fabulous 2 week holiday there. If you like a relatively quiet and peaceful resort, with lovely eating places, exceptional weather (one day temperatures reached 42 degrees) then Sami and the Nikos Apartments are for you.

Everything about the Nikos Apartments is delightful - Nikos, his wife Elene (and their two young daughters) all help to run a beautifully clean place while Grandad looks on. There are not many mosquitos either.

The pool, although small-ish, is superb. When we wanted to use the BBQ facilities, we only had to ask. Nothing was a problem for them. Although none of the family speaks English we did get by with the little Greek we knew and a great deal of arm waving, as someone else once said in another review.

Places we ate at and found pretty good were:
  • The Dolphin
  • The Mermaid
  • Adonis
  • Moonlight (out of town in the next village)
  • The Watermill (along the coast))

Thanks! Nikos and Elene, hope to see you again one day.

The Bavarian Horse Riding Stables in Sami

A very professional outfit, beautiful and well kept Bavarian horses great for experienced riders and novices.

After visiting the stables last year John and myself decided to go for a longer ride (4 hours) this year.

We would just like to say thanks to 'Connie' for an excellent, entertaining ride through the olive groves, in the mountains along dried up river beds and down to the beach at Sami. Thoroughly enjoyable.
