Virginia Apartments
Ranked #5 of 20 Hotels in Kokkari
Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

Virginia after whom the apartments are named is a beautiful woman. She'll do everything for you to make your stay fantastic. On arrival we were treated to a home cooked meal by her & during our stay she periodically provided us with home cooked snacks. She also recommended places around Kokkari to visit which we found most interesting and with beautiful scenery.

The apartment is serviced every day to the highest standards. She insists on doing this even if you tell her it's not required. So cleanliness is top notch.

We stayed on the second floor & were delighted with our apartment. The apartment block is right on the beach and our windows & balcony overlooked the water and the mountains - a fantastic sight to wake up to. The apartment is compact but has everything required. There is a small kitchen where basic meals are able to be cooked, however we took advantage of the many good restaurants in Kokkari recommended by Virginia.

Michalis her son picked us up from the airport on arrival and drove us to the ferry when we departed for Turkey.

Samos is a beautiful island so combined with the accommodation & treatment we received at Virginia apartments our stay was as close to paradise as is possible on earth.

We congratulate Virginia on her apartments and highly recommend them.

My wife and I have been staying with Virginia,twice a year,for over 10 years and we wouldn't dream of going anywhere else.Her,Alekos and Michael are a wonderful family,and visitors want for nothing.
We were devastated this year when Thomsons stopped flying from Manchester to Samos,but we were determined to get there and flew by Easyjet to Athens and then by Olympic to Samos.Flights were brilliant and worked out cheaper[stuff Thomsons].
Kokkari is a lovely village with picturesque harbour and terrific tavernas and restaurants.
You will be delighted by Virginias,but one tip 'Don't stand still for too long or you are likely to get a coating of blue and white paint'
Go you will love it.

Just booked my second trip of the year to Samos, what a beautiful island is it. Kokkari feels like the safest place on earth and to be looked after by Virginia, who ownes the apartments feels like you've spent 2 weeks in paradise!
Virginia's apartments are unbelievably clean and the view especially from the third floor is breathtaking. The bed linen is crisp white cotten that looks like it's been ironed to within an inch of its life! Virginia, is forever cooking and leaving small plates of food for us to taste. My favourite dish is her Loukomades (sp?), served hot, dripping in Greek honey and cinnamon - heavenly!! (she will even give you a cooking lesson if you really want to know how to make them, which was great fun). Family live in the apartment with her, charming husband and (handsome) son. Such a lovely holiday. Thank you Virginia for everything.

Room Tip: The third floor is wonderful, the views magnificent over looking the sea, with your own private terr...

Our second year staying at Virginia Apartments and it was, of course, excellent. I strongly reccomend to anyone questioning whether to stay here-go for it!
a few things that may persuade you are:
-the breath-taking panoramic views of the sea, the mountains and the village
-the tranquility of the location, hearing nothing but the roll of sea waves (as it is right on the beach)
-the spacious rooms
-the outstanding cleanliness
-a short 5 minute stroll to bars and tavernas (although noise from these cannot be heard from the apartments)
-the beautiful, generous-hearted owner Virginia, who makes you feel so welcome instantly

It is undoubtedly the best experience we have had in over 10 years of coming to Samos!! Our holiday here for next year is already booked-we urge you to see the beauty for yourselves.

A remarkable experience; if that is not too strong a word. The host, Virginia, not only went out of her way to comply with our every need, but went beyond that. Amenities were exceptional and high-speed internet was reliable to say the least. A perfectionist, Virginia made us feel completely at home, cooking Greek specialities for us upon arrival and throughout out stay. The rooms were beautiful; bedding was made up of exceptional blue and white linens. As for the apartments, the door was no more than 30 feet from the sea. Overall, I would return with the family and highly recommend to any anyone looking for a luxury holiday only an hour from Athens or three and a half to London by plane.

Room Tip: The third floor is the penthouse: it even features an outdoor shower!

My family and I spent 2 wonderful weeks at Virginia Apartments in Kokkari. From the minute we arrived we had the feeling that we were coming to visit a longtime friend. Virginia made us feel at home and throughout our stay, spoiled us with little surprises. Fresh flowers, exquisite foods and sweets, impeccable linens, tips on what to do and what to visit around the island and much much more. This was our first time in Samos and will not be the last. We made a friend for a lifetime. Thank you Virginia!
