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.

                                              Beautiful Villa

                                              5 of 5
                                              We returned home from this lovely villa on Wednesday. It was everything that we hoped for from the photos and reviews. Everything we could need and extremely comfortable, especially the beds. Plenty of room for 6 of us. We stayed with our older teenage children and 2 of their friends. Far enough out to be away from crowds but close enough to restaurants and nightlife for them to have a super time. We especially loved Philosophia restaurant in Pefkos with withs amazing views and even better food ! On a down note, we were disappointed with very noisy neighbours and building works going on all around us. This did blight our holiday as at some stages, we could hardly hear ourselves speak. We do appreciate that this is boy on the control of the owners, it is just a point I needed to mention in a fair review. The broadband was also very spiky which was also slightly frustrating as we took alone a Bluetooth speaker to play our music on. We couldn't do this as it constantly cut out. Saying all of this though, Villa Lily is a beautiful place to stay and we were delighted with it.

                                              very nice place, ideal to visit the south

                                              4 of 5
                                              We had a really nice holiday in this very nice house at the edge of Pefkos. The house was ideal for our big family (2 adults, four children aged between 11 and 17). The place was kept very clean and its location is perfect to visit the south of Rhodes. It is also walking distance to shops, restaurants and bars. We also thank Giorgos and his wife for their warm welcome. Overall, a highly recommendable place.
