Since the hotel is set on the quiet east side of Pythagorion (1.5 km away from the busy centre) on a hill close to the Yachting marina, it is the perfect choice for those guests who don't want to live in the noisy centre, but still want to be close enough so that they can enjoy everything that the town has to offer.

Last but not least the Electra apartments are the sensible choice for those thinking of a low budget holiday, whilst still meeting the demanding standards of today's tourism industry.

Efpalinus Tunnel


An engineer from Megara called Efpalinus, during the 6th century B.C., designed it. At that time, the tyrant Polycrates was in control of Samos and the island was flourishing economically. Its length is 1026 meters and it penetrates the mountain at a height of 246 m.
The purpose of this tunnel was to ensure the water supply of the ancient city by providing water from a water source that was located at the other end of the mountain near the village of Mytilinioi. A major significance of this project is that the workers began digging on both sides of the mountain (from the Mytilinioi and Pythagorio sides) and met in the middle with only a marginal deviation. It is located 2km away from the Electra Apartments & Studios.
