Description

Front line apartment in Albania, Saranda. Full sea view.

Saranda is a very important tourist location for Albania, since foreigners and Albanians alike flock there each summer. The reason is clear, Saranda is one of few Mediterranean beach towns where you can still get a hotel room for as little as 25-40 Euros a night (or even less during the off-season). The scene is lively with plenty of ocean-side bars and clubs, yet you can also find refinement in the many restaurants which abound with local produce and freshly-caught seafood.

Sarande has a typical Mediterranean climate, very similar to that of coastal Greece and Italy. Summer-like temperatures extend into September and October, making these months an attractive time to visit since prices will be lower and the beaches will be less crowded.

13 degrees - 17 degrees C during the winter (about 55 - 65 F)

23 degrees - 31 degrees C during the summer (about 75 - 88 F)

Recommended places to visit in Saranda

A visit to the ancient city of Butrint is another must when travelling in the vicinity of Saranda. Butrint is described as a microcosm of European history since it exhibits remains from most major empires of the area, including Greek, Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman ruins. Information about the city is well-presented in English and Albanian brochures which are distributed at the entrance, also each important site has a sign with historical facts and dates in order to help visitors understand what they are seeing.

Interesting things to see in Butrint include the Greek amphitheatre (later remodeled by the Romans), the baptistry, the cathedral, the lion's gate, and the museum which includes many interesting artifacts found in the area.

Butrint is one of several places in Albania which was kept off-limits to the general public during the Communist Era. The city was made into a tourist destination for foreigners to visit, but Albanian citizens were not allowed due to fears that they would try to escape by swimming the short distance to Greece.

Location description from owner

The Vlore County region

The name means "40" in Greek ("???????"), and refers to the martyrdom of the 40 Saints of Sebaste (Sebaste is in modern-day Armenia). The story goes, there were 40 Roman soldiers who were to be put to death by order of the Emperor Licinius, since they would not give up their Christianity. It was winter, and the soldiers were forced to lie naked on a frozen pond unless they would give up their faith.

One soldier gave himself up, and was allowed to go ashore to the hot baths, blankets, and warm food that was waiting. The guard who was ordered to keep watch over the dying soldiers, saw a brilliant light over the lake and then immediately professed his faith and went to take the place of the soldier who had left. Thus there were still 40 martyrs, this being relevant since 40 is a sacred number in Christianity.

Saranda

Once you get out of the hustle and bustle of Saranda City and drive for about 30 minutes north along the coast, you will find some of the most spectacularly untouched natural beauty. Silver-leaved olive trees line the sparkling mediterranean, parts of which exhibit the bright blue-green color you'd expect to see only in the Caribbean. The beaches in this area are cleaner and much less crowded than those in or near the city.
