Overview

Pool Modern Beach Nearby Ideal for Kids All Bedrooms En-Suite

A superb five-bedroom villa just five minutes’ drive from Afantou Beach, Villa Brimston enjoys a wonderful hilltop location on Rhodes’ eastern coast. Roughly halfway between the capital and Lindos, both around thirty minutes away, this modern villa features a pool and terrace with incredible sea views.

Villa Brimston has a beautiful outdoor area centred on the private pool which is surrounded by sun loungers and an attractive covered seating space. Around the terrace, you will also find a hammock and an excellent dining area and barbecue which allows you to dine in the shade while enjoying a spectacular view.

From the terrace, step directly into the indoor living area which enjoys lots of natural light. Stylishly furnished, you have a large seating area with flatscreen TV, a dining table with seating for eight, and a modern kitchen with an island and all the appliances you could need. All this forms part of one open-plan space with large windows and air conditioning. Free Wi-Fi is also available throughout the property.

Accommodating up to ten guests, the five comfortable double bedrooms all offer an en suite bathroom with shower, a private balcony and plenty of storage space. An additional WC can also be found on the ground floor.

One of the largest villages on the island, Afantou offers a lengthy beach with crystal clear waters, a golf course and many useful amenities. Places of worship, such as the Church of Our Lady, provide some interesting landmarks to visit.

The village is only 5km from Faliraki, with its many attractions for all ages, and only 9km from the glorious Tsambika Beach, considered by some as the best sandy beach on Rhodes. A little further south, the magnificent Lindos Acropolis – sitting high on the clifftop near the beautiful village of the same name – is another must-see.

What you should know…

  • One of the bedrooms is situated on the ground floor
  • There is no handrail on the contemporary staircase and so those travelling with younger children should ensure they take care

All over the island, Rhodes has noteworthy historic sights as well as stunning beaches. Covering roughly 90km from north to south, Rhodes is one of the largest of the Greek islands. Afantou’s central location on the eastern coast puts most parts of the island within an hour’s drive.

The capital city, Rhodes, is known for its impressive Old Town, one of the largest and best-preserved medieval towns in Europe. Look out for the Street of the Knights, the Roloi Clock Tower and the Palace of the Grand Masters. This former fortress and citadel is partly open to the public and is perhaps Rhodes’ best-known attraction. It also houses the city’s Archaeological Museum. The pedestrianised Old Town’s labyrinth of streets, some of them nameless, make Rhodes an interesting place to get lost in.

Down the coast, Faliraki offers family fun, with a well-organised beach, water-parks and a go-karting track. At the other end of the scale, Kallithea Springs, between Rhodes Town and Faliraki, is a popular waterfront spa which offers a serene setting in which to relax.

Many people visit Rhodes just for the beaches, and there are so many to try. The east coast has a great range, with several around ever-popular Lindos, as well as Afantou, Archangelos, Agathi and Tsampika, a highly rated sandy beach. Surfers head down south for the stunning Prasonisi, while the north has Ialyssos, Ixia and Rhodes Town’s Elli Beach. Down the (often quieter) west coast, you have Limni, Soroni and Kameiros – and these just scratch the surface of the island’s beach offering.

Other notable sights around the island include the Lindos Acropolis, the ancient ruins of which are situated on a clifftop and offer spectacular views of the Mediterranean, and the ancient city of Kameiros. The Valley of the Butterflies is a charming area of natural beauty which fills with butterflies in summer. If you like that, you may also like the Epta Piges (Seven Springs). This calming area of countryside features seven magnificent waterfalls and a lake to swim in.

If you like to hike, head west to Koufos Canyon, with its impressive rock formations. The canyon is about 25 minutes’ drive from the ruins of Kritinia Castle, which provides a stunning sea view. Another place to find peace and tranquility is the Gadoura Dam – perfect for a quiet walk around the lake – or you could head for one of Rhodes’ many monasteries. One of the best known, the fascinating Filerimos Monastery, lies around 15 minutes’ drive from Rhodes Town.

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

Rhodes offers all sorts of outdoor sports and activities, so active kids are going to love it. They can try tennis, mini-golf, snorkelling, scuba-diving and much more. The island is full of beautiful areas of countryside, so walking and cycling are great ways to explore too.

If your kids are nature lovers, don’t miss Epta Piges, or the Seven Springs. Swim in the lake, head into the woods or enjoy a picnic at this stunning destination near Kolymbia. Another must-see is the Valley of the Butterflies nature reserve – perfect for a family day out, it features a Natural History Museum and restaurant, and is a popular summer attraction. Located nearby, the Farma of Rhodes is a place where kids can pet, feed and get close to kangaroos, ponies, lemurs and even ostriches.

Wildlife lovers will also enjoy the Marine Aquarium.  Situated in Rhodes Town, on the island’s northernmost spot, it’s full of aquatic creatures. Similarly educational, the Astronomy Café is bringing astrotourism to Apollonos. With an astronomy-themed garden and café, as well as an observatory, it’s one of the more unusual attractions on the island, just south of Faliraki.

Speaking of Faliraki, this well-known resort has plenty for kids to do. As well as the Kartodrome go-karting centre and a big water-park, there’s a long and well-organised beach with lots of family facilities. For somewhere (hopefully) quieter, try Anthony Quinn Bay – this pretty beach is good for snorkelling.

The city of Rhodes will keep everyone entertained, with the bustling Old Town and lively commercial centre providing cafés, restaurants and lots of familiar shops. There are also a couple of multiplex cinemas in the city. The peaceful Rodini Park, said to be the first landscaped park in the world, is a nice spot to have a quiet break if things get too busy.

There are many museums around the island, but the Toy Museum, located near Archipoli, is one of the few aimed at children. Featuring local toys from down the decades, it’s sure to be interesting for adults as well, and it’s free to visit. The Bee Museum of Rhodes, about 15 minutes from the capital, is also a well-deserved family favourite.

History lovers will get a kick from the old, ruined castles that are found around the island – wonderful sea views are part of the package at Kritinia, Feraklos and Monolithos. Numerous churches and monasteries and Rhodes’ medieval Old Town, provide yet more options.

If that doesn’t float their boat, an island cruise certainly will. From Rhodes’ Mandraki Port, you can journey to the isle of Symi and spend the day there. Alternatively, stay on the island with a boat trip down to Lindos and soak up the view from the legendary Lindos Acropolis.
