If you know about the geography of the Greek Islands, you already understand that they are not all, exactly alike. Some are close to Turkey and have the distinctive climates and architecture of that region, some are on the far western side of mainland Greece and to the north. Because of the great cultural and geographic diversity of the Greek Islands, Isle Blue would like to recommend the very finest of them to their clients. Offering luxury accommodations and amenities, and in jewel-like settings will provide our guests with the very best experiences of Greece imaginable.
Described as the “it girl” of the Ionian Sea, this island is an amazing blend of French, British and even Venetian influences. The landscape is one dominated by rolling hills over which sprawling olive groves, charming manors and pastel-hued villages appear. The coastal areas are just as appealing, with charming fishing villages attracting some of the world’s most famous boating enthusiasts. The writer Lawrence Durrell was enamored with the island and let the world know about its amazingly beautiful beach – Myrtiotissa along the northern coast.
Long known as a luxurious destination, it has been a popular island with the rich and famous since the 1960s.Because of that, travelers can enjoy some of the finest restaurants, spas, and beachfront clubs and bars in the entire region. This does not mean it is a place of buzzing and humming activity, however, and there are many gorgeous and peaceful spots to enjoy the endless sun. Agios Sostis Bay is a wonderful secret that is also home to the famous Kiki’s “shack”. This fantastic waterfront restaurant offers non-stop scenery, amazing grilled dishes, and lovely scenery. Just off shore is Delos, a historic site where a temple to Apollo can still be seen.
This somewhat “under the radar” island deserves full attention. It is utterly charming and appealing with its stunning mountain – Mount Ainos, and its amazing beaches (Myrtos and Horgota), its national park and its irresistable seaside villages. Assos, Fiskardo, Dafnoudi and Emblissi are all destinations for some of the world’s richest and most famous, who visit specifically for the amazing food, pristine snorkelling and ridiculously beautiful scenery.
This is that postcard Greek Island that is such a draw to millions of visitors each year. The stunning blue of the sea, the white and blue of the island’s homes, and the black sand beaches add up to a must see locale. The cliffs and history of the island are appealing too, and yet you can also visit a volcanic crater, active hot springs, and fantastic little towns like Oia and Pyrgos.
