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.

                                                      5 of 5
                                                      We have stayed at one or other of the villas several times over the years. The Villas were designed and built by Nico and now managed by his son. They are situated in the best spot in Pefkos. Its a quiet area but only a short stroll into the town. There are some of the best restaurants in Pefkos (Eleni, DePappa, Timmis) within a few hundred yards. The pool is spotless, warm and you don't need to get up early to get the towels out. If its a relaxing holiday you're after - this is the one.

                                                      Beautiful Villa perfectly situated.

                                                      I am looking to book a villa again for next year and not sure where, but I am trying to find somewhere as amazing as this villa we were a party of 5 and loved the place, it was perfectly situated just a short walk to the town and a shop just across the road for all the food you would need. Plus a fantastic restaurant and bar. We were there to attend a wedding and I would very much recommended this villa to be central to all your needs. There is a bus stop right outside that will take you to Lindos for just a few euros.
