Manolates on the north side of Samos is found by driving through the lush nightingale valley from Ag. Konstantinos. Manolates is a must to visit. It’s steep streets with several arts and crafts shops and several tavernas is worth the effort. I recommend the tavernas Anthemoussa at the entrance of the village, Despina in the old wash house and Loukas above the village in particular.
It is also a nice experience to leave the car behind and walk up to the village on the old donkey road.
