My wife and I stayed in this lovely condo right in the heart of Samara for the entire month of February. Aside from being excellently appointed and having all that anyone might need for an extended stay, it is within minutes of everything: beach, bank, store, restaurants, etc. Prior to going we were in contact with the owner, Carla, numerous times and she was always gracious, helpful and, more like a close friend or family member than an "owner." Several friends visited for short stays and all were impressed with the condo, the village, and all that it has to offer. Should we choose to return we would definitely wish to stay once again in Carla and Richard's home away from home.
