“I think we are only going in one direction. If we don’t do anything, that’s it! We are at war with plastic.  We are from a generation where we are all throwing away plastic as if it is normal, without realising it’s wrong.  We need to slowly change our minds and reverse the damage that has been done.Now we know, no excuse, it has to be done”

“It’s not that hard to do, when you have changed one thing for a week, you forget having used that throw-away plastic at all! We are not inventing anything now.  We are from a generation of craziness and we are going back to normal and nothing more, just common sense.”


This year was my second stay at the Blue Seas Hotel and I am working on an excuse to go back next year. Our room was bright, cheerful and extremely clean. The decor is a bit modern for my taste but I can appreciate a job well done and this establishment is beautifully done. Every day there was a new local candy or cookie in our room. There is a common room and we found it inviting and comfortable. The breakfast was very tasty and enjoyable. Last year I remember the smell of homemake jam cooking, there is nothing quite so homey and pleasant. The proprietors are beyond helpful and charming (not to mention wickedly funny). I have travelled at least once a year to Europe for the last 24 years. The Blue Seas Hotel is amongst my top 2 favorites. I WILL find a reason to return.”
