κοντά στην περιοχή Palaiochóri, North Aegean (Greece)
The walk downhill to the (now inhabited) monastery of Aghios Ioannis Eleimonas is easy anf follows a dirt road. It offers great views on the sea and the Fourni Islands. Where the road goes up again (50 mtrs after a sharp bend) there is an almost hidden gap steep down to a small track to Klima beach (if you want to make a detour). Continue the road until suddenly the monastery comes into view. Enter the ground (its a small, shaded green oasis, or paradise). There is a spring with fresh water. An ideal place to come (like a monk) to rest, and mediate about your sins and change your lifestyle. There also a small path down to the beach I consider it my secret oasis on Samos, however i'm willing to share it with you. After many visits i finally discovered a hidden path from the monastery to return to Paleochori, so making it a more interesting circular walk.
Once you come on a road, turn right . I have marked it with a pile of stones If you walk the way in opposite direction: Turn left, and at the end of the fields - on the highest point, look straight ahead for a small path down to the narrow valley, where it crosses the (mostly dry) stream, turn right on the path down to the monastery
