Self-Catered Ideal for Kids Walk to Village Parking Space

Vacation with a view when you holiday at Villa Argonite, on the east coast of the ancient island of Rhodes, in the southern Mediterranean Sea. This modern villa is located on the hillside of the charming village of Archaggelos, south of the holiday hotspot of Falariki, and commands sweeping sea views as far as the eye can see. The villa has five double bedrooms, and two bathrooms, and can comfortably accommodate up to ten guests in some style, ideal for a family or friends’ sharing.

Villa Argonite is set in its own two thousand square metres of grounds, with lush green lawns, mature trees and indigenous shrubs, and a private swimming pool, all surrounded by stone walls for privacy and security. The villa has two private parking spots and comes complete with complimentary air conditioning and Wi-Fi throughout. This architect designed two-storey, two hundred and ninety-five square metre property, is built of classical Mediterranean white-washed stone, with an impressive frontage which cleverly combines sea view balconies with shady verandas. Whilst the elegant interiors are furnished with contemporary pieces, and eclectic lighting, and decorated in a neutral palette of creamy beiges and shades of grey.

Enter the villa at ground floor level, where you will find an open plan living space, with floor-to-ceiling windows that let in lots of light and air, and rewards the guests with stunning sea views. The villa has a cool light coloured tiled floor, with a black pattern that defines the different living spaces. The seating area has two comfortable cream leather sofas and matching armchairs, glass coffee and side tables, arranged facing a flat-screen smart television. The dining area has a glass table with six cream-upholstered chairs, ideal for some impressive indoor entertaining. The adjacent white and stainless kitchen is fully equipped with the latest appliances that you will need to cater for your holiday, including an American-style family-size fridge freezer, a built-in oven and hob, a washing machine and a dishwasher, and that must-have morning coffee maker. There is a round grey marble table to seat four, perfect for a casual breakfast catch-up. All the bedrooms are fully furnished with double beds, side and dressing tables, wardrobes, air conditioning, mosquito nets, and balconies with stunning sea views. The first of the five bedrooms can be found on the ground floor, with a kings size bed and a smart television. The other four spacious double bedrooms are on the first floor. There are two bathrooms, one on each floor, both with bathtubs, showers, double wash basins, bidets, and WCs.

Access the terrace through the living space, where there is a centrepiece ten and a half metre long roman step entry infinity swimming pool, perfect for a few lengths before breakfast. The pool is surrounded by cream-cushioned curved sun loungers with shady parasols, strategically positioned for maximum sea views and sun worshipping. Relax in the shaded soft seating area, or take a swing on the egg chair in the garden. Watch the sunset from the terrace, cocktail in hand, then choose your favoured dining spot. Either follow the paved path to the pergola where there is a built-in barbeque with an informal dining set or eat alfresco under the shaded veranda at the smart dining table and chairs.

Villa Argonite is located on a hillside overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, in the quaint village of Archaggelos, on the eastern coastline of the ancient Greek island of Rhodes, the jewel in the crown of the Dodecanese Islands. The villa is thirty-three kilometres from Rhodes’ Diagaros International airport, a fifty-minute journey away. In the village of Archaggelos, there are local shops and mini markets for daily provisions, cute cafes and bars for morning coffee and evening retsina, and lots of traditional family-run seafood tavernas, where you can sample some delicious Greek delicacies. Whilst you are there take time to visit the Church of the Archangel Michael, with its bell tower and gilded interior, and walk the ruins of Archaggelos Castle, built in the fifteenth century by the Knights of St John.

The nearest beach is nearby Charaki, an eight-minute drive to this quiet resort with crystal clear easy entry water. Take a ten-minute drive to Tsambika Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches on the island, with golden sands and deep waters, or go snorkelling from the sweeping bay of nearby Stegna Beach. Go to the south of the island, where you will find Lindos, with its own acropolis, reputedly one of the most impressive sights in Rhodes, and with the most idyllic beaches. Within easy driving distance, you can get to Kalithea Springs, Rhodes Waterpark, Rodini Park, Diagoras Stadium, Andreas Papandreou Park, and the Acropolis of Rhodes. For some holiday hot spot tourist entertainment make your way north of the villa to Faliraki, where those who live the nightlife will find lots of lively clubs and bars.

Rhodes really is a walker’s island with almost 14 000 square kilometres to explore, through forests, up mountains, discovering ancient sites, and maybe stopping at a welcoming village taverna to sample the local wine, honey, and herbs, along the way. The ancient town of Rhodes is a forty-five minute drive from the villa, and well worth a visit. The old town of Rhodes has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and as you wander the narrow lanes, old streets, and fortifications you’ll see why. Rhodes’ history has been influenced by the Knights of St John, Venetian, and Ottoman conquests. Make sure you visit the Palace of the Grand Masters, the Castle of Monolithos, the Suleyamniye Mosque, the Archaeological Museum, the Museum of Modern Greek Art, and the many ornate churches, as you count the eleven gates as you make your way around the old town.

If you can’t pound the pavements, take a Segway tour, or stop for refreshment in a traditional taverna and sip ouzo as you watch the world go by. For the adventurous, rent a quad bike, or join a jeep safari, and take a tour of the island, climb aboard a high-speed boat to the lovely island of Lindos, or relax with a spot of fishing at Makarounas. If fishing isn’t your thing, you can admire a myriad of marine creatures indoors at the Aquarium of Rhodes. And for those who really want to go further afield, get island hopping and take the Rhodes ferry to the adjacent island, or cross continents to the cosmopolitan town of Fethiye on the Turkish Turquoise coast.

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

There’s lots to keep your younger ones occupied with a stay at Villa Argonite and the historic island of Rhodes. Starting with the villa itself, the private pool has an easy entry shallow end, and is perfect for a day of swim, splash, and play, and when it’s your own there’s no set hours. The grounds of the villa are spacious, with green lawns, and old trees, surrounded by a fence, where they can run free.

The nearest beach is Charaki, a short eight minute drive away, with its golden sands and warm easy entry Mediterranean Sea water. The eastern coastline is peppered with child-friendly beaches, most offering sun loungers and parasols, local cafes and tavernas, and some with water sports for your older and more adventurous kids. There’s no shortage of parks in Rhodes, such as Rodini, where you can take a walk in nature, cross water over picturesque bridges, chase butterflies, see a turtle or two, do a spot of bird watching, not to mention spying a peacock in all its glory. No trip to Rhodes is complete without a family away day at sea, all aboard a boat for a jolly on a shared or chartered yacht, discovering secret coves and beautiful bays in which to swim and snorkel. Island hop to lovely local Lindos, or spend the day on Symi with its neoclassical architecture. If it’s adrenalin adventures they are after, join a Rib Cruise, take to the sea on a catamaran cruise, or go underwater on a submarine. For the thrill seekers take your teenagers to the local parasailing, kitesurfing, jet ski, paddle boarding, scuba diving, and sea kayaking clubs.

Back to dry land and wheels, with a Trikke Tour, an historic electronic bike whizz around Rhodes old town, or ride the more sedate retro e-bike photo stop tour, or maybe have some fun aboard a Segway. Join a 4 x 4 jeep safari for some family fun time, with a trip around the island, discovering the natural flora and fauna, and traditional Greek villages. A day discovering the old town of Rhodes is well worth a family visit, wandering through the stone streets, climb the fortifications, and enjoying a traditional Greek dinner in a local taverna. Discover the history of Rhodes in the Palace of the Grand Masters, visit Monolithos Castle, and the other many museums, including the Toy Museum, or take the hop-on hop-off bus tour to see all the ancient sites, and make sure you don’t miss the Windmills of Mandraki at the harbour. Try out the Throne of Helios for a thrilling 3D experience. Go north to the fabulous Faliraki Water Park, with huge pools and lots of slippery slides for some family fun in the sun. If it’s a dull day take them to the Aquarium of Rhodes, and see the sea life indoors. Out of town there’s the must-see Butterfly Valley, see butterflies flutter by in a six hundred acre nature park and walking trails of dense local flora and fauna.
