TRADITIONAL VILLAGE HOUSE, MALONA, RHODES

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Malona - Malona Houses

Village house, open plan living with all mod cons

These 1895 original old village stone houses, restored with environmental materials are set in a quiet, traditional corner of the village of Malona. Just 5 minutes drive from the beautiful golden beach of Agathi, and the pretty harbour of Haraki, the village of Malona has alot to offer in both the summer and the winter. It is an active traditional agricultural village, surrounded by orange, mandarin and olive groves which keep the locals busy all year around. Malona is a small village with little narrow streets, and retains its Greek traditional pace of life. A place where the men of the village sit out in the evenings in the local cafes, and the women sit together in the streets with the children. Many here speak some English after time spent working in America, and you will find them mostly friendly. A 15 minute drive finds you in the beautiful village of Lindos for romantic evenings out, or 10 minutes in the other direction, in the heart of Rhodes 2nd town Archangelos.

Hi, I am Clare Lee, the owner and renovator of the two houses here. My son Ioannis and I live in Rhodes most of the year round. I am from England and came here to live permanently in 2004, so that I could follow my dream to renovate traditional houses with due care to the environment, using traditional methods of building. As an Interior designer, you will find the houses are practical, well detailed, and contain everything you need. Apart from being a Mum, and looking after the running of the houses, I am also an independent Yoga teacher. We have been renting these houses since 2008 now, and people have been most enthusiastic about their experience. We trust you will be too.

Clare Lee purchased this house in 2005

I bought the houses in Malona as a stepping stone for us to the South of the island as we live near town generally for work purposes. We love to drive to all the corners of the island and Malona is perfectly situated for this. It gives us an easy drive to join friends in Lindos, or to Kiotari for the fresh summer breezes, over to Monolithos for wild views and beaches, or for windsurfing madness down on Prassonisi beach at the far point of the island. Equally we love to sit in Haraki where we never fail to feel like we have arrived on a tiny Greek island somewhere. We enjoy the slow pace of the village, and find we are able to relax when we arrive there riding the bikes through the village to get fresh bread and things without a crowd in sight.

Visitors are most thrilled here about the style of the houses the kitchen facilities, and the fact that they are not part of the touristic trail.

Notes:
The house has a 55 sq.m. roof terrace accessed through small storage room. A corner of this area as you step out has a bamboo covered shaded area with sofa seat and 2 reclining chairs. There are also 2 deck chairs. The views from here are to the church, village and surrounding country which this house sits right on the edge of. General countryside noises should be expected. Parking to the side of the house is on the street or up to the church area. Outside the front door is an old traditional cooking/BBQ area to be shared with next door. The house is air-conditioned with heat exchange for cooler months, plus 1 standing fan available. Children are welcome, be aware there are no handrails to the platform beds and no stair gates, I find my 3 year old is deterred by a chair! The roof terrace is accessed by ladder like stairs.
