A short walk from Rhodes’ Kalathos Beach, this superb two-bedroom villa is perfect for up to four people. Around ten minutes’ drive from Lindos, Kalathos Blue has a wonderful outdoor area with pool and makes a great base for exploring the whole of the island.

Your swimming pool is the centrepiece of the spacious terrace, featuring four sun loungers with parasol and a large barbecue. You also have dining and seating areas just outside the house. The quiet Kalathos Beach is only around 400m from the villa, with Vlycha Beach a little further.

There’s a stylish lounge equipped with sofa seating, a flatscreen TV with satellite channels, air-conditioning and free Wi-Fi, and your kitchen has an oven, fridge freezer, dishwasher, coffee maker and a dining table and chairs.

There is a double bedroom and a twin bedroom at Kalathos Blue, each with an attractive bathroom with shower. Both bedrooms offer direct access to the outside area, and also benefit from air-conditioning.

The village of Kalathos has good local amenities including a supermarket, pharmacy, bars and restaurants. Kalathos Beach is one of the longest and cleanest beaches on the island, and a short walk away. Just down the coast, the popular pebble beach of Vlycha is well organised for sunbathing and water-sports.

A few minutes’ drive away, there are more lovely beaches in Lindos, including the idyllic St Paul’s Bay. If you’re willing to drive a bit further, you should also check out the wonderful Prasonisi Beach which sits at the island’s southernmost point.

Lindos has some of the island’s best nightlife as well as an iconic landmark in the form of the Lindos Acropolis. Around 50 minutes’ drive up the coast, the city of Rhodes is not to be missed with its well-preserved medieval Old Town a big highlight. Look out for great museums of art and archaeology, Evangelismós Cathedral and the Palace of the Grand Masters among many fascinating attractions.

Rhodes has so much going on all over the island, your choices for days out will be endless. At the top of the island, the capital city is a good place to start – the Old Town in Rhodes city is one of the best-preserved medieval cities in Europe, but still very much a city of today.

The Palace of the Grand Masters is the main attraction of this impressive UNESCO World Heritage site, but you can have just as much fun exploring the labyrinth of old streets which make up the Old Town – there are so many architecturally interesting buildings to see. A walk around the old city walls is a very scenic way to get to know Rhodes, or you could check out the Archaeological Museum, The Museum of Modern Greek Art or even the Bee Museum for more local insight.

Rhodes has plenty of big-name shops and restaurants all over the place – some are tourist traps, but you can find plenty of good ones too. Among the city’s other attractions are Elli Beach and Rhodes Acropolis, while the city also boasts the biggest and boldest nightlife scene on the island. Head for Orfanidou Street for the biggest concentration of bars and clubs in town.

Elsewhere, you have excellent outdoor attractions like the Valley of the Butterflies, to the west of Faliraki. It’s particularly lovely in summer when hordes of colourful butterflies appear. You could combine your visit with a trip to the Epta Piges (Seven Springs), about 35 minutes’ drive south. Both of these are idyllic spots with areas of woodland that are perfect for walking. Anthony Quinn Bay, a very pretty beach south of Faliraki, is also well worth a visit.

Rhodes has many more beaches on the east coast. You could stop off at Afantou, Archangelos, Agathi or Lindos as you travel south. The stunning Prasonisi attracts surfers and kite-surfers, and is well worth the trip to the very tip of the island. If you’re after sporting activity, the island delivers all sorts of opportunities – everything from scuba-diving to golf and horse-riding is available, and with such expansive areas of countryside, walking and cycling are great ways of exploring too.

There’s a lot for kids to enjoy on the island, such as the water-parks of Faliraki, the go-karting track, Kartodrome, and the Marine Aquarium in Rhodes city. There are also many sights of historical interest – the Lindos Acropolis is definitely worth a visit, as you’ll be rewarded for the steep walk by some breathtaking ocean views.

The Island/Getting There

Rhodes is the largest of the Dodecanese Islands of Greece. It’s got a lot of history as it’s been invaded a lot by the Persians, Carians, Ottomans, Italians, and Germans.

Average temperatures go from 20’c in April up to 30’c in July/ August and down to 20’c in November. With an average of 85 rainy days a year they get sunshine for around 280 days.

The island is 90km long with Rhodes town at the northern tip. The airport (Rhodes International Airport "Diagoras") is also in the North (15km from Rhodes Town). Charter flights and Easyjet operate direct from the UK all season and out of season (Nov-March) you’d need to fly via Athens.

The Acropolis – The Acropolis that sits high above the town of Lindos is absolutely amazing and is a must see if you’re looking for some of the best views in all of Rhodes. One thing I should mention is that the climb up to the acropolis requires you to be somewhat active and able to climb stairs, lots of them. The trail begins through town and slowly but surely starts to get steeper as you climb the hill towards the acropolis. Once there, you’re rewarded with historical buildings dating back to 300 BC. Our Villa Corteau sit just underneath the ruins.

Rhodes has over 40 beaches, here are a few: 

  • Anthony Quinn’s Bay – Anthony Quinn’s bay is one of the most beautiful bays. The bay is located 17km (10 mi) south of Old Town Rhodes and offers some incredible photo opportunities to say the least.
  • The beach at Anthony Quinn’s bay is one of the best beaches in Rhodes. Get there early if you want to snag a sunbed and umbrella and enjoy wading around the bright blue and green water. Amazing!
  • For the best views of Anthony Quinn’s Bay from above, head on up to the windy road that leads up the hill just north of the bay and you’ll find a spot where you can sit and enjoy the virtually 180 degree views of Rhodes and its coastline.
  • Tsambika Beach (or Tsampika) –  Tsampika beach is located 30km (18 mi) south of Old Town Rhodes and is a great place to spend the day in the sun.  Note: Beware there is a small section where nudists congregate on Tsampika beach 
  • Lakido Beach – Just opposite Anthony Quinn’s Bay is Lakido beach. It’s literally 3 minutes walking distance from Anthony Quinn’s bay so visiting both beaches in a day is totally doable. As a matter of fact, I would highly recommend visiting both if you get the chance
  • Faliraki Beach – One of the most popular tourist spots on the island of Rhodes. It was known for 18-30’s holiday in the 90-2000’s but I don’t think there is that market so much now. It is quite commercialised now there are water sports and a few diving schools.

How to reach Rhodes island 

There are two ways to reach Rhodes Island: either by flight or by ferry.

By plane: If you don’t want to lose time you can fly to Rhodes (RHO) from Athens. The flight lasts 1 hour. Many direct flights also operate from many European countries, so it will not be difficult to arrive there.

By ferry: If you choose to travel from Piraeus to Rhodes with a ferry, it will surely take you much longer but travelling with a ferry in the summer nights can be pretty enticing! The port of Rhodes is located in the southern part of the island and offers bus services to the town centre. You can easily book your ferry tickets using the link below or the booking engine.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Kalathos Blue is perfect for kids, with its great outdoor facilities including a magnificent pool and barbecue. There’s satellite TV and Wi-Fi, and the location is excellent too – just a few minutes’ walk from the beach.

Around the island, there’s so much more. The Valley of the Butterflies is one of the island’s must-sees – and kids can enter free of charge. You will love walking through this stunning nature reserve and visiting the Natural History Museum – and you can also stop off in the restaurant for a break. Not far away, the Farma of Rhodes offers an interactive wildlife experience with llamas, kangaroos and ostriches. Kids can pet and feed many of the animals at this park, making it a popular attraction.

Epta Piges, or the Seven Springs, is also ideal for a family trip. The beautiful lake which the seven springs fill is a popular spot for a swim, and the springs themselves are spectacular. The woodlands make a great place for a picnic, too – Epta Piges really feels like an oasis of calm and tranquility.

Rhodes is great for getting active, whether on land or on water. Any sport you could think of is available somewhere on the island, with tennis, mini-golf, 5-a-side football and go-karting among them. Scuba-diving and snorkelling are also popular – try the beautiful Anthony Quinn Bay near Faliraki for the latter.

Faliraki has some of the best family-friendly attractions, including some great water-parks and an aquarium. The huge beach extends for miles and has good facilities for kids too. Also look out for the Astronomy Café at Apollonos – you can’t miss it, because it has its own observatory, as well as an astronomy-themed garden. Definitely an unusual and educational destination.

Located in the basement of Rhodes’ Hydrobiological Station, the Marine Aquarium in Rhodes town offers a fascinating look at the region’s aquatic wildlife, with turtles, fish, octopuses and the like as well as oceanic organisms like reefs and sea flowers. It also occupies the northernmost spot on the island!

The city is great for shopping, with lots of familiar stores to explore, and just as good for dining with many family-friendly restaurants. The tranquil Rodini Park provides a place to relax, and there’s no shortage of history to uncover around the medieval Old Town. The imposing Palace of the Grand Masters, the Colossus of Rhodes memorial and the Rhodes Acropolis are all worth a visit, as is the Archaeological Museum, housed in the former Hospital of the Knights in the palace.

Reviews

  • New villa in an olive grove

    on 07/08/2020

    New 2020 villa, located in an olive grove, with a private garden, a swimming pool (depth 1 m) and a barbecue area. A well-equipped terrace for relaxing in the evening. In the bedrooms there are comfortable beds and large wardrobes. New bedding and a full set of towels, incl. for the pool. The kitchen is equipped with everything necessary for cooking. Air conditioning, lighting, cable TV and Wi-Fi are at a high level. Dense shutters and mosquito nets on the windows. It was nice to discover a welcome bottle of wine, water, fruit and snacks. Woke up in the morning from the sounds of donkeys, roosters and peacocks.
