Lambros Hotel And Apartments

The Lambros Hotel And Apartments is an authentic Greek base for a holiday to Samos. The exterior styling is rustic, with terracotta roofs and whitewashed walls. Inside, the bedrooms are kept simple with tiled floors and hardwood furniture. Plus, there are only 10 of them, so there’s a personal feel made even better by the friendly hosts.

At the back of the hotel, there’s a decent-sized pool that’s flanked by a handful of loungers and sunflower-yellow parasols, while plants in bloom add a pop of colour. Breakfasts are a continental affair, so expect a great spread of treats! Some of the produce is homemade, too.

Resort Summary

Because Kokkari is tucked away on a triangular peninsula framed by the Aegean Sea, it’s treated to a great number of beaches. Its coast of pebbly beaches and peaceful bays is marked by rows of bars and tavernas topped with terracotta roofs. The largest is the aptly-named Long Beach, which features 800 metres of pebbly coast.

Occasionally, Long Beach is subject to, northerly winds, which makes it a top spot for windsurfing, but not always for swimming. Behind the shore, you’ll find a line of tavernas and bars that enjoy the gorgeous sea views and pair them nicely with a cool drink and seafood dish.

On the other side of the peninsula are two smaller, more intimate beaches nestled into calmer bays. Nearby Lemonakia Bay, only a five-minute drive away, has some of the most popular shores in Samos. It’s just a short walk from the main road, and features 100 metres of pebbles and sand, plus sunloungers, parasols and serene waters.
