If you look you'll see that I've reviewed these apartments before. There's not many places in the world that I feel drawn back to again and again, but the village of Ireon and Iliana's wonderful apartments are something special. The location's fantastic, only about 15 minutes by taxi from the airport, so within 40 minutes or so of landing at the airport you can be wallowing in the warm sea, or sipping your first ice-cold Mythos beer in the friendly kafenion in the village square. The village square is less than a minute from the apartment, and the sea is only a couple of minutes away.
Iliana's apartments are simple, but very comfortable. All are spotlessly clean and each one has a balcony or a terrace with a view down to the sea or up to the mountains behind.
Right opposite there is a fish taverna. It may look a little scruffy, but don't be fooled. Here you will find the freshest fish and the cheapest prices in Samos. I'm really not kidding. Last year three of us stuffed ourselves with fresh fish, greek salad and a litre and a half of the local wine, and it was 11 euros each.
Nearby, Iliana's friends run Cohyli, a charming garden restaurant with amazing food in a lovely setting.
The village is only small, but there's enough great small family-run restaurants to eat at a different place every night if you want to.
There's plenty to keep you perfectly happy in Ireon, but it's very easy to get the bus to different places like the nearby town of Pythagoria with it's old castle, ancient ruins and harbour-side restaurants.
We're already looking at flights to book for this summer, and we'll be staying at Iliana's as usual!
