Things to do

Rhodes:

Discover the capital city of Rhodes, of the same name. Located on the northern tip of the island, the city is home to approximately 80,000 people. Explore the old medieval city ruins and the modern city as it functions today. The ancient city was even built with a protective moat.

St. Paul's Bay:

Visit any one of the beaches on the island of Rhodes. For example, visit the closed-off cove of St. Paul's Bay in Lindos. Lindos is a small bay, and St. Paul's Bay faces a Haraki resort. The apostle Paul is said to have landed in this bay during a storm. Make sure to see the beautiful inlet.

Church of the Panagia:

The Church of the Panagia is located in Lindos. The church is easily identifiable by its bell tower made of stone. It is white-washed outside with red roof tiles, and inside the floor is designed in the kokklaki fashion, which consists of black and white pebble mosaics.

Archaeological Museum of Rhodes (Hospital of the Knights):

The Archaeological Museum sits in the former Hospital of the Knights. This interesting building is bioclimatically designed to cool in summer and heat in winter. The Museum has exhibits on the archaeological findings on Rhodes and its surrounding islands.

Water Park:

Visit the Water Park on the island of Rhodes. The water part was built amphitheatrically on 328,000 square feet of the island. It is located 7.5 miles from Rhodes centre. Slides, black holes, free fall, kamikaze slides, and other rides can all be found at this attraction sure to please adults and children alike.

Acropolis of Lindos:

Visit the Acropolis of Lindos. This fortress was appropriated by the Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Knights of St. John, and even the Ottomans. This layered history makes it a difficult site to excavate on an archaeological level. The view of the coast and the nearby harbour is spectacular.

Weather in Rhodes

Weather on Rhodes is consistent with a Mediterranean climate: hot and dry in the summer, with rainy and mild winters. Summer temperatures reach into the mid-30s and winters do not generally fall below 10°C. The Etesian Wind system is present from May to October each year. This system, also called the Meltemi, can be problematic for sailors.

Travel to Rhodes

Getting to Rhodes is simplest by plane. Book your flight into the Rhodes Airport (RHO), also called Diagoras. Both regular and chartered flights leave and arrive daily from all over Europe. Once in Rhodes, a ferry system throughout the entire Aegean Sea brings travellers to and from all major islands and to the mainland of both Greece and Turkey.

The villa is fabulous, well equipped and spotlessly clean. The free wifi is a bonus. The kitchen has everything you need, with a a large fridge and freezer compartment for your ice cubes!!! It even has a washing machine. The well kept pool and and gardens are great to relax in the lovely sunshine and the large barbecue is brilliant for 'al fresco' dining. The villa is in a quiet location and central to both the resorts of Lindos and Pefkos which are very easily accessible with their many restaurants and bars. We would definitely recommend this villa to anyone as they wouldn't be disappointed.......In fact we enjoyed it so much we've already booked for next year.

The host also did I great job of making us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. The villa was spacious and spread across two floors with areas to sit out the front and back with a mostly private balcony too. The sunbeds out front got lots of sun throughout the day and the surroundiny gardens were lovely. It was great to sit out there under the umbrella making regular trips to the fridge for a beer or wine..! The location was great for us, just a 10 minute walk from the centre of the town and away from main roads. We hired a car and there was plenty of places to park outside. Accessing the pool at the hotel across the road was easy and they were very welcoming. We spent a few days there, they've got a well stocked bar and basic poolside food. The villa had all the amenities we needed, an iron and board, good wifi, good air con, a safe and a decent shower. We thought the apartment was clean enough... yes the towels could have done with a hotter wash and the bedding could do with an upgrade but we didn't question it considering the price we paid. When you compare it to other accommodation in Lindos it really is great value... its clean and spacious plus you're not charged for air con and you pretty much have a pool. We'd definitely stay there again and hope to see Manolis in October.
