It's difficult to review this wonderful property without repeating whats already been said, particularly in the most recent, excellent review by Clayheads.
Although committed Grecophiles, we hadn't been to this area before but we were familiar with Afitos. We only happened to come across the Aegean Blue after a truly extensive and exhaustive search following a last minute decision to cancel our original holiday and boy, are we so glad we did.
It was just perfect for us in every way. Our absolute essentials are -
nice pool area
The Aegean ticked all the boxes and more
An onsite bar serving snacks is also a big plus plus but only if it's not open till daft o'clock and we're not kept awake by the drunks rocking in at 4am as we unfortunately had experienced elsewhere. Certainly not the case here!
Sophia and George are the perfect hosts, extremely helpful and friendly without being intrusive.
We had a few days of bad weather but thanks to Georges wonderful hospitality the mood remained decidedly upbeat.
Having found this little gem we were bitterly disappointed to hear that Thomas Cook have dropped the whole area for next year. Goodness knows why. It gives Thomsons the monopoly as the only provider of direct flights from Manchester, needless to say they are charging the most ridiculously high prices as a result.
However I'm sure we will return to Afitos and wouldn't stay anywhere else than Aegean Blue, its not rated number 1 for nothing! (It's possible to book the accommodation direct with Sophia)
