Agios Konstantinos, Samos Island

The village of Agios Konstantinos is a beautiful coastal village situated at a distance of 18 kilometers northwestern to the town of Samos, on the circular coastal road to Karlovasi. The village is composed of two settlements, Ano (upper) and Kato (lower) Aghios Constantinos. The village counts some 400 permanent residents, occupied in agriculture and, recently, in tourism.

In Ano Agios Κonstantinos there is the homonymous church that gave its name to the village; the church, as well as the whole village is hidden in a pretty thick wood. The lower village has been built in the 19th century and is inhabited all year round, whereas the older upper one gets alive only in summer. The two settlements are less than 500 meters far away from each other. Both villages are found within an environment with abundant current water and luxuriant vegetation. Traditionally, the locals were occupied in agriculture, mainly in vineyard and olive trees cultivation, but recently they have also turned to tourism which is being rapidly developing in the area.

Thanks to the scenic environment, the lush vegetation, the lovely beaches and the sufficient tourist facilities it offers, Aghios Constantinos attracts many visitors. The visitors will find several alternatives for accommodation, both within the village and in the area around. The traditional restaurants and the scenic taverns at the seafront offer nice local dishes and Greek cooking.

The visitors of the place will enjoy swimming at the beach of the settlement, as well as at the nearby beaches of Kampos, Tsampou and Petalides, all of them with crystal clear nice sea.

Apart from the two settlements of the village, which are pretty scenic, don’t miss to visit the ravine of Aidona, a place of breathtaking beauty; you will walk along the ravine, within a fascinating natural environment and you will have the chance to fancy that you are listening, or even listen to the sweet trilling of the night gales, after which the place have been named. Once in the village, you may also see the churches of Panaghia, dedicated to Virgin Mary and the church of Aghios Constantinos. If you feel like wandering around, you may visit the nearby scenic small village of Ambelos. The village is arranged on a hillside and offers an excellent view. Also, it is worth seeing the nice stone fountain, with the cool water.

Three local religious feasts (“panighyri”) take place in the village: on the 21st of May in honor of Aghios Constantinos, on the feast of Aghia Triada (the Holy Trinity) and on the 15th of August in honor of the Assumption of Virgin Mary.

In case of any problems a local Medical Center and a Police Station are available in the village.

Access to Aghios Constantinos is very easy by public buses, running regularly, and by rented or private cars and motorbikes. The small port of the settlement is available for mooring of small boats and yachts.
