Samos is an island rich in geography, culture and history. While the capital of Vathy and busy stretches of coastline offer a vibrant atmosphere, the spirit of discovery is still very much alive on the island.
Villages with cobbled streets and quaint churches show off a traditional side of life. Natural spectacles come in the form of illustrious mountains and spellbinding waterfalls. And the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Pythagoreion and Heraion of Samos are guaranteed to satisfy any traveller soaking up legends and archaeological wonders. Casa Cook Samos itself is located just a stone’s throw from the historical village of Pythagorion, the birthplace of the famous mathematician and philosopher, Pythagoras.
