Make a self catering villa or holiday rental in Pefkos, Greece your home away from home

Pefkos is on the northeast side of the island of Rhodes, the largest of the Dodecanese Islands, and aptly named the “Island of the Sun”. It is a popular resort with beautiful beaches and a friendly atmosphere.

Things to Do in Pefkos, Rhodes

The beaches on Rhodes are truly beautiful with soft sand and clear warm waters for swimming and snorkeling. Windsurfing and other watersports are popular and equipment can be rented from most resorts and glass-bottomed boat tours are a good way to see the local marine life. Tennis, golf and waterskiing are also available around your Pefkos holiday rental. After dark, the island offers something for all tastes, from tavernas serving excellent food to discos, bars, pubs and clubs. For exploring, bicycle hire is available in the town or visitors can go hiking in the surrounding pine-tree-covered hills. There are healing spring waters and spa treatments for many ailments at nearby Kalithea.

Places to Visit Around Pefkos, Rhodes

Apolakkia is close to Pefkos on the road to Monolithos. This pretty town has mediaeval houses, old windmills and quiet monasteries. The cultural centre is worth visiting in one of the oldest mansions, built in Italianate style right on the village square. Just three miles from your Pefkos holiday home is Lardos, a traditional Greek village, with a natural spring water fountain, which is a great place to sit in the shade and people-watch. History lovers will appreciate visiting the Acropolis at Lindos which is built into the hillside overlooking St Paul’s Bay. It has connections to the Knights Templar. One of the most interesting days out from your holiday rental in Pefkos is a boat trip to one of the neighbouring Dodecanese Islands.

Everything was as described and spotlessly clean. Beautiful outside area with stunning view from the infinity pool. Directions from the airport were very clear and Svetlana was always on hand to answer or deal with any minor query before and during the stay. Very friendly welcome and lovely goodies in fridge on arrival which was so appreciated as we arrived quite late at night. Perfect location only a very short drive from Lindos. Plenty of nice restaurants in area. It is rare to find a lovely villa with such an amazing view yet still be able to walk down to the beach in less than 5 minuites.Also loved walking down to the bar at the Lindian Jewel in the evening for a cocktail. Thank you and hope to return to this beautiful villa.

Maid service was unexpected but very good. Good location for a walk into Lindos and beach. If you have a car Pefkos is a 5 minute drive. The use of the pool and bar opposite added to the great value of this accommodation. Overall highly recommended
