"So peaceful, so relaxing...A retreat like no other...Truly breathtaking!"

Aegean Blue is located on the volcanic side of Lesvos and sits on the cliff edge of Podaras, overlooking the Aegean Sea. With spectacular rock formations, natural water sources and breathtakingly beautiful beaches, it really is the perfectly secluded spot.
Nearby rests the sleepy fishing village of Tavari, the beautiful Mesotopos further up the mountains and the more vibrant beach resort of Eressos.
Below Aegean Blue, there are three residential bungalows along the beach road, and several tucked-away farmhouses along the farm road behind the beach. In winter the riverbed, almost dry in summer, fills with the rain from the mountainsides and fresh water flows into the lake and underground, where it collects and provides all-year round irrigation for the surrounding farmland. What remains of the lake in summer is home to a wide variety of wildlife, including many birds, terrapins, frogs and a vast array of insects. Farming is varied, but the main things the visitor will notice in summer are the goat-like sheep that graze on the hillsides. There are lovely walks along the tracks behind the beach amongst tall shady bamboo and old farm buildings. Or why not take the mountain road to visit the hillside shrine to the east of the beach?
