From the moment you get on the Saos Ferry in Alexandroupolis Port you can see the Island of Samothraky blue in the distance....! And like the locals say proudly " It is a Mountain not an Island !" It is Fengari mountain range with Saos Peak 1664m! It is an Island full of mistery,cascades, thermal baths, 800 years old Plane trees like in a fairy tale,fig trees ,olive trees,a multitude of plants and flowers and.......birds ....and ...streams everywhere...! All is home made ..Honey,
Goat cheese.....vegetables all grown there ! The Island took the International Turist Board Prize for Nature and Identity ! Chora the Capital is up in the mountains commanding a beautiful view over the sea ! Never miss the Cake shop where the owner is an real Artist, making ice cream and gateaux from all the plants and flowers of the island ! The beaches ,the hiking, the nature above all ! It is a Paradise !!! The water is so clear....is unreal...!!!! You can stay and look at all the millions shades of stones from vulcanic to turcoise and iron red. Fishes and tortoises ...and the peace...all around you...! The flower of the Island is Ortansia !!! Hydrangea in english. All colours up to 2m high, is enchanting !!!
Archondissa Beach Hotel in Therma is Superb!!! The architecture is so in keeping with the island, big balconies overlooking an immense garden full of Ortensias flowers.....Everywhere are flowers all shades of pink and blue, in the back the imposing Mountains green and lush, you think you are in South America, real beach hotel ,standing alone in the nature, but not too isolated, 1 km from an excellent Taverna also in the woods with a garden full of blue Ortensias and Hammocks among the trees....like in 1970....The hosts Yanna.Alecos and Polina are like your friends,ready to help and their hotel Reception is full of books like home, and mementos are everywhere; is truly amazing !!! The breakfast is served on the terraced in view of the sea sorrounded by flowers and is home made honey,yogurt, goat cheese ,jam ,eggs and of course Greek Coffe !!! Yanna and Polina give a tuch of homliness to everything while Alecos is a Master Gardener With a Straw hat like Monet !!!
