Yet again we had a brilliant holiday at Villa Anna. There is always a warm welcome and the rooms and grounds are just perfect. If you want to spend your days lazing by the pool then the beautifully clean pool and amazing gardens are just what you need. Equally, there are lovely beaches nearby and the local town of Pythagorion is only a 20 min stroll down the road. A perfect base for whatever holiday you want !!'

This was our 16th visit to Pythagorio but the first time we'd had to stay outside of the village. Usually we'd spend two weeks there in June, and return for another week in September - but now since Thomson no longer have accomodation in Pythagorio itself, we were only prepared to risk one week to try out this new location. No complaints whatsoever about The Villa Anna itself - set back far enough from the road so as not to be noisy - a two floor block of appartments set on one side of a decent size pool with a bar (which we only used on the day of our departure). The owners seemed very friendly, the rooms were of a high standard and kept spotless. On the downside, I must repeat, despite what Thomson say, The Villa Anna is NOT in Pythagorio! We are both fairly fit but the village is a good 20 minute walk away! Since we are used to spending time on the harbour itself, usually both in the afternoon and late at night, we were often walking there and back twice a day (though you can get a taxi). Why do you need to go into Pythagorio itself? Apart from it's stunning location,lined with bars and restaurants,you could quite easily eat in a different place every night for two weeks! While out by The Villa Anna there is little to no choice (though the excellant Pegasus is situated about half way into Pythagorio).This goes someway to explaining why quite a few of our fellow visitors (all English?) to The Villa Anna, seemed content to spend all their time by the pool.Having said that,one advantage to the location is that the beach is an easy 10 minute walk away!
Would we go again? We are returning to Pythagorio for two weeks in September, but staying privately in town - would we stay at The Villa Anna again? Certainly YES for one week, but not sure about two.

Have just spent 2 weeks at Villa Anna Studios. The family were very friendly and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for them. The studios are kept very clean, with regular towel and bedding changes. We had studio 1, which is tucked away in the corner by the bar so quite private. The walk into Pythagorio will take about 20 minutes but there are plenty of things to see along the way. It did seem like it was taking forever to get there and back but this was probably due to the fact that it was really hot. Beware of the mosquitoes, they are very hungry this year, so take plenty of repellent. Whilst the studios are very close to the airport you hardly notice this at all. There are no night flights and not that may early morning ones either.
The restaurants we tried in Pythagorio were: Maritsa, Aphrodite, Dionysis and Irodion, which was the best out of all them. Prices were pretty much the same as we have paid before in Greece, with all of them serving good sized portions.
This was our first time to Samos and we will probably be back and staying at Villa Anna.

Room Tip: Studio 1 is on the ground floor, with a good sized patio. It is near to the bar so can be noisy but...

Lovely place to stay and looked by far the best of our coach drop offs. Booked through Thomson and have no complaints with any of the trip. Anna, Dimitri and Yannis are a wonderful hosts and you feel right at home straight away. Welcomed with a complimentary drink and felt the family were genuinely pleased to see us. The pool was very clean and the area around was also nice and clean. The rooms were the best we have ever had in 22 years of coming to the Greek islands and we requested a balcony and this was accommodated too. Facilities better than ever had before with a 'real' kettle! Toaster and coffee maker too. (Normally it is a small saucepan). free toilet rolls throughout our stay rather than the one in bathroom on arrival only. The room was keep very tidy and a change of towels and linen during the week. Cleaned daily. Snacks at the bar were good value and a lot of the produce used came from Dimitri's garden. The villas are well situated with a small walk to the nearest beach and about 20 minutes walk from the lovely Pythagoria harbour where there are many restaurants and bars to choose from. We particularly enjoyed Thomas' bar for a friendly welcome and great selection of drinks. We will be back again as soon as possible. It was wonderful, thanks you Anna Dimitri and Yannis. You are special people

Room Tip: There are two stories if you like a balcony as for one, if you prefer a patio then ground floor for...

How great it is to see familiar faces each year - I think that says more about Villa Anna than any commentary! Why do so many return year after year to Villa Anna? Because they would not find a holiday which would meet their expectations in the way Villa Anna does, try it once and you will be smitten. Have I been tempted by cheaper elsewhere on Samos? Yes, and then have come to my senses, it is not all about money is it?!! it is about the welcome, great management, the cleanliness, the ambience, the environment, proximity to Pythagorio and the nearer beach and other facilities all on hand. I have had so many wonderful holidays at Villa Anna and can not wait to be back there in September. There have been some negative comments posted on this site which have been addressed by the family at Villa Anna so well. My singing its praises may be to my detriment as its popularity means you need to book early to get your chosen weeks!! And how great it is to see familiar faces each year - I think that says more about Villa Anna than any commentary! So Sssshhh....keep this gem to yourselves!

We have visited Greece many times but I can honestly say we have never had such a warm welcome.Nothing is too much trouble for this hard working family ready to help with any request at any time.All areas are kept spotlessly clean & tidy.Despite the airport being so close you don't seem to notice it. Yannis is the son & he is the generous barman,interpretor,font of all knowledge,entertainer & never seems to stop working.Anna his mother from morning til night was either working in her office, cleaning, washing, greeting & always smiling.Dimitri the father grows all their vegetables cleans the pool & keeps the grounds tidy & well maintained.A true taste of traditional Greece its like stepping back in time about 15 years.The same can be said about the town.For people interested in history there is plenty to see.The shop owners are all very friendly & helpful.Restaurants are plentiful & prices seem to vary but for quality & value Four seasons takes a lot of beating.Their 2 person menu board offers a starter,salad,garlic bread & main course for 21 euros.We truly enjoyed our stay in Samos which was made all the better for staying at Villa Anna with their wonderful family who made us feel part of their family.

We have had a wonderful week here the family that run these studios can not do enough for you the rooms are well equipped and cleaned every day with clean bedding and towels twice a week, The pool is lovely and there are plenty of sun beds all very clean.
On arrival we received free drinks from yannis he is so friendly and keeps guests entertained with his jokes and is always cheerful showing an interest in what guests have done and advising of interesting places to visit and restaurants that other people have enjoyed.
The menu is a typical bar menu that is generally provided at a self catering facility with omelettes toasted sandwiches burgers, Greek salad etc. all fresh and cooked in front of you all vegetables are home grown in their garden.the prices for drinks were reasonable and cheaper than at some other places we visited Yannis often gives free shots to the guests and bowls of nuts and crisps..
We have stayed at numerous islands and mainland Greece and would come back to Samos and stay here again it has been fantastic.
