The Location

Samos is a Greek island in the eastern Aegean Sea, south of Chios, north of Patmos and the Dodecanese, and off the coast of Asia Minor, from which it is separated by the 1.6-kilometre (1.0 mi)-wide Mycale Strait.
In ancient times Samos was an especially rich and powerful city-state, particularly known for its vineyards and wine production. It is home to Pythagoreion and the Heraion of Samos, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that includes the Eupalinian aqueduct, a marvel of ancient engineering. Samos is the birthplace of the Greek philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras, after whom the Pythagorean theorem is named, the philosopher Epicurus, and the astronomer Aristarchus of Samos, the first known individual to propose that the Earth revolves around the sun. Samian wine was well known in antiquity, and is still produced on the island.
Samos is relatively undeveloped, but offers huge potential to attract a more affluent demographic looking for history and culture, as well as traditional Greek hospitality and beach activities, on an island with guaranteed sunshine in the summer months. 
The island of Samos is enjoying an increased share of holiday makers from northern Europe. The nationality of tourists that visit the Island are mainly English, Scandinavian, Dutch, Greeks and Turkish.
