|The road from Kokkari to Karlovassi just before Lemonakia beach|
|Co-operation post with my blog|
Last year we landed on a cloudy Samos island which seemed a little bit strange for us. We started our holiday in Pythagorion as usual but in the morning we took a bus to Kokkari. In the village we had a lovely swim behind the interesting corner and then we walked up the hill to our target. From the main road to Karlovassi you'll turn on your left just before Lemonaki beach which is a wonderful place. You need definetely swimming shoes to get safely to the sea. I felt really hot and thirsty when climbing to the hill although it wasn't specially shiny day.

Kalidon Panorama Hotel offered us a junior suite for a good price. Thank you Maria at the reception for your kindness!
This is the most stylish hotel I have ever been. Happy to notice that my night dress suited so well on the bed which had very nice matress and bed linen. High quality!
After a quick shower we went to the pool bar for a lunch. That Greek salad tasted gourgeous with a glass of white wine as always in Samos. Holiday feelings are the best feelings!
This sofa in the is one of my favorite places in this lovely hotel. The view to the pool is calming and the atmosphere is peaceful. Just like we expected.

The pool area was tempting but we were there only a while because we wanted to walk slowly back to Kokkari for a dinner. On the way we went to say hello to our friends in Arion Hotel where I was staying in 2016 for a week. It is in the neighborhood.

In the evening Kokkari looked like this from our balcony.
The pool was even more tempting with beautiful lights on. I'd love to have a calming night swim there. Sorry, but it is not allowed.
We slept really well in this wonderful room on the upper floor. Early in the morning I woke up to take some pictures of the sun rise. It felt amazing to have a private photo shooting in a place like this. This greek life offered me memories which makes my life like a dream. Touched!
The breakfast room looked like this. I hope my pictures tell you the story better than my words...
The breakfast was marvellous as much I ate. I was so anxious to catch the feelings with my camera that I didn't remember to taste everything. Next time I'll just eat and enjoy the experience in peace. I tried to be invicible but I didn't succeed perfect. Many of the guests were curious what I was doing. Hope that some of those reads this post and understands what was the point. It is called blog co-operation. I am a Finnish photoblogger in love with Samos island. I try to share happy moments from our journeys.
This secret garden is really worth to visit.
The reception area was like this. The person who has designed this has a good taste and lots of visual skills.
In the lobby the same aesthetic continues. It was nice to notice something familiar. Finnish design from Marimekko suited well to this entirety.
I have been writing this post for a long time. There is so much things I'd love to say but maybe it's best that you read my pictures on your own way and make your own conclusions about Kalidon Panorama. My videos from this happy visit will be ready to publish later.
Thankful for this lovely meeting in this luxury hotel which staff was kind to us. Hope to see you all again! This is my hundredth published post.
