Welcome to Blue Beach villas & apartments
First thing in the morning, when you are admiring the view from
your balcony, the sea is a sparkling silvery blue. By mid-day, when you are
swimming in the crystal clear waters, which lap the pretty little beach, the
sea is a rich translucent turquoise. By early evening, as you sip your drink
and watch the sun go down, the sea is a deep, moody blue. These constantly
changing colors were the inspiration behind the name for the collection of
apartments called Blue Beach.

the Mediterranean meets the Ionian Sea. The scenery here is so spectacular that
it was used as the location for filming "Zorba the Greek". Today, it
is still wonderfully unspoiled; an area of natural beauty and tranquility, yet
