Things to Do in Pefkos, Rhodes

The beaches on Rhodes are truly beautiful with soft sand and clear warm waters for swimming and snorkeling.

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.

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.

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.

                                                Lovely villa

                                                4 of 5
                                                We stayed here for two weeks in August and had a lovely time with family. Overall impression is that the villa is lovely, although we had a few issues but they were dealt with well by Julie, the lady who looks after the villa (who we cannot speak highly enough of). Initial impression on arrival was lovely. We were met by Julie who directed our taxi to the villa. Our arrival pack was awesome - masses of fresh fruit, champagne, beer, wine, milk, bread, Nutella, sunscreen, mossie repellant, the list is endless and this was very well received by our party. One thing you should be aware of is that the map shown on this site is inaccurate. It is located on the Amiyra Development on the other side of Pefkos, this was fine with us but if you know Pefkos, it may not be where you thought it was. The rooms are all well appointed and the beds are very comfortable. The outside spaces are amazing, and there is so much room everywhere. The barbie area, the two dining areas, tennis court, pool (although there are many tiles coming off) and hot tub. There is everything you could pretty much want in the kitchen and we dined in a lot and we had everything we could need. We hired a car and whilst we didn't go far, it was essential. Lindos is very easy to get too and very beautiful. The supermarket near there is one of the better ones however, some of the local ones do stock a decent range of food. The bakers in Pefkos is amazing! The cakes and desserts were gorgeous. Unfortunately, whilst we were there we did have three days when the air con broke down in the bedrooms, whilst continuing to work in the main living area. It was frustrating having to try to get it fixed and at times, made to feel that it was our fault that it was not working - it was not. It was eventually fixed but it was disappointing it broke in the first place. After all, it was 30 ish degrees. In addition, the wifi stopped working buy fortunately my husband worked out (eventually) how to fix it. It broke again but we managed to get it working. And finally, whilst I don't go on holiday to watch tv, with three kids in our party, and the Olympics on, we would have like the TVs to work. Not one of them worked throughout our holiday, despite being communicated to the owners. This is an expensive villa and we would have expected these to work. But we did have a nice time, just a little frustrating with these issues (esp the air con).

                                                Wonderful villa

                                                4 of 5
                                                The villa brilliant it was modern, well equipped, clean and well kept. The spa area and games area need a little attention as some of the equipment is getting a bit old. The views from the villa were beautiful. You definitely need a car to get about, but the various beaches we visited are well worth it and not too far to drive to. Pefkos has some beautiful bars, restaurants and shops and is 5 mins away in the car. Ali the manager for the villas, was brilliant anything you needed he was there to help you and very knowledgeable. We would definitely go back, the villas we're very peaceful and secluded, great for families and large groups as you can hire all 3 villas. Well worth a visit.

                                                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.
