SAMOS ISLAND

The village of Ano Vathi is situated in the northeast of the island of Samos, above the capital of the island of Samos which is called Vathi or just "Samos". If you drive in from the south (Pythagorion) in the direction of Samos Town you arrive at a at a fork in the road next to a large church. One side (the left) goes down towards the port (the exit that is marked as "Samos"), the other side on the right (two narrower roads) lead to Ano Vathi. In 2010 we gave Ano Vathi another chance and we went deeper into the village. Ano Vathi is created in the 17th century when the inhabitants moved away from the coast because of pirate attacks. The streets are narrow and steep and some of the (mostly small) traditional, old houses have hanging bay windows in a Venetian style.
