Villa Alekos is one of six brand new properties that have been built in the historic village of lalysos on the north western coast of Rhodes, just moments from the Old Town of Rhodes. The villa enjoys a gorgeous open plan living space, three bedrooms, an additional sleeping space and a private garden with a pool and a delightful alfresco dining area. Like the other five properties, Villa Alekos boasts unique Scandinavian architecture with Greek detailing, all with minimalist and simplistic design. Guests staying in the six villas share a well-equipped gym and an alfresco barbecue and wood oven kitchen and dining area with the other properties. There is also a shared laundry facility with washing machines and dryers. It is a great concept that offers privacy to guests yet with the addition of a few added extras.
The villa is situated in the heart of lalysos and only five minutes walk from the beach. Lalysos is otherwise known as Trianda. It is a village full of Greek charm with ancient ruins in its pine covered hills. Its pebble and shingle beach is very popular with windsurfers. Lalysos’ neighbour is Ixia, a bustling resort with a seaside promenade lined with palms, bars, cafes and restaurants. The villa lies within striking distance of the UNESCO World Heritage Old Town of Rhodes which is a twenty minute drive away. Here you will discover charming narrow streets, gorgeous historic buildings and a wonderful nightlife. Guests should not miss Lindos’ Acropolis, the island’s most exquisite archaeological site and the dreamy beaches of the south of the island. The airport is just fifteen minutes away so you can be lazing beside your private pool in no time at all.
Villa Alekos sleeps up to seven guests in its three bedrooms and using the double bed which sits just off the living area. The design is pretty cool with a large open plan living space and an informal bedroom space to one side. Guests sleeping here wake to beautiful garden views when they look through their giant floor-to-ceiling picture window. The living space offers a smart, sleek, fully equipped kitchen with excellent appliances, a dining area and a living area. The furniture is trendy and comfortable. Guests can sit on the squishy sofa leaning against the colourful scatter cushions watching the wall-mounted Smart television or enjoying the garden views.
Floor-to-ceiling sliding doors open to the garden where you will find a small private pool, sun loungers, a seating area and alfresco dining under a pergola. There are some lovely tropical plants in the borders. It is a lovely peaceful area, perfect for topping up your tan and reading your holiday book. Guests are welcome to use the shared alfresco kitchen with its barbecue and wood oven and delightful dining area.

Lalysos sits on the north western coast of Rhodes just six miles from Rhodes Town and next door to Ixia. Lalysos is often called Trianda. It is a popular tourist resort, especially with windsurfers thanks to its ever-present sea breeze. There are several surf schools if you want to learn a new sport. Lalysos is one of the oldest villages in Rhodes, along with Lindos and Kamiros. Ancient lalysos was located strategically on the top of the fortified Filerimos Hill. The remains of a Minoan settlement have been found, together with Mycenaean cemeteries on the surrounding hills. There are remains from the Archaic and Byzantine periods. The Temple of Athena Polias which was built in the second and third centuries BC stood in the spot where an even older temple stood. In the 15th century a medieval monastery and church were built on the site. Later, the Italians converted the monastery into a church.
The neighbouring Ixia is a busy tourist resort which sits next to the history steeped Old Town of Rhodes. Ixia clings to the curl of the Aegean island’s coastline with a lengthy pebble beach and seafront pavements. The Akramitis Mountains are a wonderful backdrop to this resort which is full of hotels, bars and restaurants. The two kilometre beach looks towards the Turkish mainland and is popular for windsurfing, parasailing and yachting. There are plenty of loungers, parasols and beach bars. The scenic promenade is lined with bars, tavernas and a few bakeries and shops.
Rhodes Town, the island’s capital, appeals to foodies, history buffs, shoppers and those that love visiting museums and beautiful architecture. Its Turkish quarter is home to some excellent shops and the magnificent Street of Knights, where the Crusaders made home in the Middle Ages, should not be missed. The gorgeous Old Town of Rhodes is an intricate warren of busy commercial streets and delightful, quiet alleys. The Old Town is full of Byzantine and Gothic churches, medieval buildings, mosques, traditional fountains, oriental motifs and many boutique shops and restaurants. The highlights of the Old Town are the Palace of the Grand Master, the Archaeological Museum housed in the Gothic building of the Great Hospital of the Knights, the Street of Knights and some of the mosques. Celebrating their medieval roots, it is common to see parades of locals dressed as knights, fire jugglers and jesters and stalls serving up banquest style feasts.
A short drive from the villa takes you to the village of Kremasti where, for one day each August, the village comes alive with the Festival of the Virgin Mary. There are street parades, lots of food stalls and traditional Greek singing and dancing in the streets. Dating back around 2500 years.
On the east coast of the island, lies the incredibly pretty village of Koskinou, famous for its unique mosaic of colours. The facades, doors and windows of the 17th and 18th century neoclassical houses are bright and cheerful, many with carved or etched designs. Small patios and gardens complete the pretty picture. You won’t be able to resist peeking in! The village boasts charming narrow streets, beautiful churches and chapels and a wonderful array of traditional taverns and cafes. There are countless paths that lead from the newer, coastal part to the old village with its cobbled streets and whitewashed squares full of vibrant flowers. Visitors to Koskinou enjoy delicious traditional cuisine in the local tavernas as well as yummy local wines. Koskinou has enjoyed an interesting history since the 4th century AD. Its 13th century medieval castle and the chapels built in the 4th century are worth visiting.
Kallithea is another gem of a seaside village. The beach at Kallithea is famous for its hot medicinal springs which were built by the Italians. The village is beautiful, lined with palm and pine trees and sprinkled with beautifully renovated buildings and mosaics, all influenced by the Arabic architecture. The Kallithea Spa was built in 1920 by the Italians. Following its restoration, the spa is a top sight. Many guests visit the area for its crystal clear azure waters and magical scenery.
South of these two charming resorts is Faliraki, buzzy and vibrant with its many hotels, bars, restaurants and an enormous sandy beach. The beach starts at the small harbour and spreads for nearly 5km so it’s a great spot to head for if you want a day of watersports and lazing in the sun. There is even an inflatable park for the young ones. Just about every watersport imaginable is offered as well as bungee jumping. The nightlife is incredible with fabulous restaurants, bars and nightclubs. The Faliraki Water Park is fantastic fun and a very popular excursion for families.
Lindos is one of the island’s prettiest towns, all in dazzling white and hints of blue. The town is overlooked by the Acropolis. You can hitch a ride to the top on the back of a donkey! The gorgeous narrow streets of Lindos feature charming shops and bars plus an excellent dining scene. Lindos’ millennia-old temple to Athena with its Doric columns and breathtaking 360 degree views should not be missed!
Rhodes International Airport "Diagoras"
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.
Villa Alekos is ideal for a family holiday. It sleeps up to seven and the extra sleeping space just off the living area is very comfortable. Children love having their own pool.
The island of Rhodes is perfect for a family holiday. There is so much on offer from sensational sandy beaches, watersports, the Faliraki Water Park, the Valley of the Butterflies, an aquarium, a petting zoo, riding schools, go karts and more.
Thrill seeking children love the Faliraki Water Park. It is the largest water park in Greece and boasts a huge selection of extreme speed, open, closed, twisted, free fall and Kamikaze slides, a lazy river, swimming pools and a fun water playground. You can buy one, two or three day tickets to the park. For sure, your children will be keen to go back once they have enjoyed a thrilling day on the slides.
The magical Valley of the Butterflies is roughly 25 minutes from the villa on the western side of the island, five kilometres from the village of Theologos. It is beautiful part of the island brimming with Zitia trees and millions of butterflies that descend during the summer and hang in the shadowy wet paths of the brook which transforms into lakes and waterfalls.
Rhodes is known for its stunning beaches. There are many beaches to choose from. Some are silvery sandy stretches and others tiny and rocky, perfect for snorkeling or diving to explore the underwater life. Some of the most popular beaches are Traganou Beach, Tsambika Beach, Lee Beach, Pefkos Beach, Agathi Beach, Lindos Beach and Plakia Beach. There are many watersports on offer including paragliding, windsurfing, catamaran sailing, waterskiing, wakeboarding, kayaking, snorkeling and diving. You can take many boat trips including glass bottom boats.
Rhodes has a fascinating history and there are many interesting museums to visit including the Archaological Museum of Rhodes, the Modern Greek Art Museum, The Palace of the Grand Master of the Knights of Rhodes, the Folklore Museum, Rhodes Toy Museum, the Bee Museum and the Filerimos Monastery.
Other popular family friendly excursions on Rhodes are to the Rhodes Aquarium, the Farma of Rhodes Petting Zoo and Eleousa which is located in the lush foothills of Mount Profitis Elias.
