Traditional village house, Malona, Rhodes - The Fourno 'Bakery' house

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights


Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Rhodes - Malona Houses

Village house, open plan living with all mod cons

Original village stone houses, restored with ECO principles, set in a quiet, traditional corner of the village.

Just 5 minutes drive from the fabulous sandy beach of Agathi, and the pretty harbour of Haraki.

It is an active traditional agricultural village, surrounded by orange, and olive groves which keep the locals busy all year around.

A small village with little narrow streets, with an authentic traditional pace of life. A place where the men of the village sit out in the evenings in the local cafes, and the women sit together in the streets with the children.

Many here speak some English after time spent working in America, and you will find them curious and friendly.

A 15 minute drive finds you in the beautiful village of Lindos, or 10 minutes in the other direction, in the heart of Rhodes 2nd town Archangelos.

About Clare Lee

Hi, I am Clare , British, and the owner and renovator of these two houses. I came here to live permanently in 2004 so that I could follow my dream to renovate traditional houses with due care to the environment, using traditional methods of building. As an Interior designer, you will find the houses are practical, well detailed, and contain everything you need. Apart from being a Mum, and looking after the running of the houses, I am also an independent Yoga teacher. We have been renting these houses since 2008 now, and people have been most enthusiastic about their experience. We trust you will be too.

Clare Lee purchased this house in 2005

Why Clare Lee chose Rhodes

I bought the houses in Malona as a stepping stone for us to the South of the island as we live near town generally. We love to drive to all the corners of the island, so the house is perfectly situated for this. An easy drive to join friends in Lindos, or to Kiotari for the fresh summer breezes, over to Monolithos for wild views and beaches, or for windsurfing madness down on Prassonisi beach at the far point of the island. Equally we love to sit in Haraki where we never fail to feel like we have arrived on a tiny Greek island somewhere. We enjoy the slow pace of the village, and find we are able to relax when we arrive there, riding the bikes and letting the children be free without a crowd in sight.

What makes this house unique

Visitors are most thrilled here about the style of the houses the kitchen facilities, and the fact that they are not part of the touristic trail.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Clair,

thank you so much for your email.

We enjoyed our holiday in Rhodes very much.

The house was great and comfortable.

We did use the Air Conditioning, the Temperature was high outside and it was also warm inside so we used it really every day.

The car showed 38 °C and we had 29°C in the evening.

It was nice not to need any jacket and to spend your time in the sea as long as you like.


Thank you for staying longer in the house, it really made things easier.

Kind regards,

Robert, Claudia, Amelie and Lisa

What a wonderful surprise! Clare, the owner /designer extraordinaire ... Made such a beautiful place to stay...open light airy, complete with private roof deck. although one needs a car to stay in Malona as it is approximately 10 mins from your choice of many beaches, 15 from Lindos, a good 35 mins from Rhoades..with a car it is a wonderful way to see the whole island and have a fairly centrally located home base in a lost in time weenie old Greek

Village, at least 4 small markets and the incredible fresh produce truck swings through the village pretty much every other day(do not miss him!! Even if you are choosing to eat out all meals...his fruit bar none is some of the most delicious I have ever eaten...July/August stone fruits...incomparable peaches, nectarines, plums...outstanding. Clare is a lovely host, full of great ideas for things to do...all of which can em

Be found in the extensive homemade welcome book. Crisp cotton sheets, towels, fully equipt kitchen, games, tv, music, wifi, books...Clare though of most everything...even a washer and plenty of clothes lines on the roof to quickly dry...make sure to stop by Stephanos in town for a lovely home cooked meal by his wife or share a leisurely glass of Ozso with him to learn all about the locals and local goings on...the best spanakopita comes from the bakery just a few doors down and closer to the entrance of Malona...safe, tidy, charming...a truly wonderful slice of Greek life and staying at with of Clare's fantastic rentals with not disappoint ! PS Clare is open to selling eo

It her special place should you want to own your own piece of Greek Paradise(130K for the little one and 160K for the big one ) oh PS if you go to Haraki...don't miss the Malona Salad or the roasted eggplant with Greek yogurt ...outrageous

Owner's Response: Yes exactly, a great location for easily exploring the commercial north, the wild south, the long sandy beaches of the East, and the castles in the west with glorious views and sunsets, all within a 5 to 45 minute drive. We aim to make the house welcoming and with everything you could possibly want, it's always good to hear that's how it feels.

Owner's Response: So pleased you enjoyed yourself so much, we and the kids thoroughly enjoyed our time with you too. The whole pottering about between the 2 houses was great fun, I often imagine it is a perfect 2 -3 family holiday with plenty of space to spread out and enjoy. We look forward to seeing you again. Kind Greetings Clare & Ioannis

Traumurlaub im Traumhaus

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren eine Woche Anfang Juli auf Rhodos und zu Gast im Fourno "Bakery" House.

Alle Angaben waren korrekt und die Buchung, Zahlungsabwicklung & E-Mail Kommunikation mit der Vermieterin war unkompliziert und herzlich.

Wir wurden von einem liebevoll eingerichteten Haus in Top- Zustand empfangen und konnten eine unbeschwerte Woche in dem kleinen Dörfchen Malona verbringen.

Wir hatten einen wunderschönen Urlaub und würden das Fourno House zu 100% weiterempfehlen!

Owner's Response: We spent a week in early July on Rhodes and guest appearance at Fourno "Bakery" House. All details were correct and the booking, payment processing and e-mail communication with the owner was easy and welcoming. We were greeted by a beautifully decorated house in top condition and have a carefree week to spend in the small village of Malona. We had a wonderful holiday and the House Fourno would recommend 100%! Christina & Fabian We love it that our guests enjoy our houses as much as we do, and we pride ourselves on making our visitors feel well looked after before and during their trip. We are happy to welcome back Christina & Fabian again this Autumn.

Lovely and functional home

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks in this comfortable and romantic home. The house really has everything you need. The kitchen is spacious and equipped, we found coffee, tea, fresh water and other products at our disposal,so when we arrived we were able to rest after the journey.

The house is clean and organized. The car is essential.

Malona is a cozy village, We believe his position is very comfortable to move in different places most interesting to visit. In ten minutes drive you can reach different beaches.

The assistance of the owner is on site. We recommend this location for couples, families and all those seeking peace.

The house has a 55 sq.m. roof terrace accessed through small storage room. A corner of this area as you step out has a bamboo covered shaded area with sofa seat and 2 reclining chairs. There are also 2 deck chairs. The views from here are to the church, village and surrounding country which this house sits right on the edge of. General countryside noises should be expected. Parking to the side of the house is on the street or up to the church area. Outside the front door is an old traditional cooking/BBQ area to be shared with next door. The house is air-conditioned with heat exchange for cooler months, plus 1 standing fan available. Children are welcome, be aware there are no handrails to the platform beds and no stair gates, I find my 3 year old is deterred by a chair! The roof terrace is accessed by ladder like stairs.
