Villa Colossus is situated in the ‘village of colours’ Fanes, 13km south-west of the airport. Fanes is delightful, bright and cheery after a village initiative and local artist Loukas Nikolitsis breathed new life into this corner of Rhodes by refreshing the old village houses. Bright, colourful colours were used to make Fanes a very unique place. With a splendid beach boasting a range of water sports, charming tavernas and a picturesque harbour on the doorstep, Villa Colossus is a popular pick for guests wanting a comfortable base on this beautiful island.

The villa is modern and relatively minimal in design, making it very easy to step right in and enjoy your holiday. There are three bedrooms, one of which is on the ground floor. This is a spacious double bedroom with its own bathroom. Also on the ground floor is a lounge and dining room, a modern well-equipped kitchen and a guest toilet. The lounge opens to the lovely terrace and swimming pool.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms, one a double and the other a twin bedroom. They share another spacious bathroom. The upstairs balcony is large, offering lovely views towards the town and sea.

Guests are sure to spend most of their time outside enjoying the brilliant Greek sunshine. The swimming pool is a delight, set on the terrace with a lovely pebble surround. There are plenty of sun loungers where you can enjoy your holiday, read and relax. You can enjoy pre-dinner drinks by the pool and alfresco dining using the villa’s barbecue. The planting is pretty and colourful, making this an enjoyable spot to return to after a day on one of the island’s gorgeous beaches.

Villa Colossus is just a very short distance from the lovely flat beach of Fanes where pretty tamarisk trees offer some shade. The walkthrough to the beach is a delight and makes you smile at the charming colours. Windsurfing and kite-surfing are very popular on the beach given the wide flat sands and the exposure to the northern winds. Traditional Greek tavernas offer the catch of the day. The village is nestled between Soroni and Kalavarda.

Soroni is a small, pretty village where the most popular religious festival on the island is held at the chapel Aghios Soulas on the 29th and 30th July every year. It is totally unspoiled and boasts a few shops and charming tavernas as well as a small beach. With fertile soil, olive groves, vineyards and citrus groves thrive.
Rhodes is known as the ‘Island of the Sun God Helios’. Visitors can enjoy the magnificent explosion of colours and activities that this wonderful island has to offer. As well as many spectacular beaches, the island is home to some unique and beautiful flora and fauna in its rich green valleys and boasts amazing views from its chalky mountains.  Visitors must explore the interior of the island to find its hidden treasures. Steeped in history, Rhodes offers a wonderful blend of nature, tradition and cosmopolitan attractions.

The Old Town of Rhodes is a fascinating mosaic of different cultures and civilisations. Medieval fortress-like buildings meet narrow alleys, fountains and bustling squares. The Palace of the Grand Master is certainly the highlight of the Old Town, and the cobblestoned Street of the Knights is one of the best-preserved medieval streets in Europe. Outside of the Old Town, magnificent Venetian, neoclassic and contemporary buildings will catch your eye.

The island boasts some of the best beaches in Greece, from secluded hidden coves to crowded, cosmopolitan hubs of activity. There is something for everyone. Lindos, Anthony Quinn, Tsambika, Kallithea, Faliraki and Agathi are just some of the popular hotspots.

The picturesque village of Koskinou is famed as the prettiest village in Rhodes and is decorated with colourful plant pots. The traditional Greek houses are as pretty as a picture with bright, vibrant colours. Koskinou is an exciting labyrinth of tiny, winding, cobblestone streets with fabulous splashes of red, blue, yellow, green, pink and turquoise.

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.

Rhodes has a fascinating history and boasts many interesting museums to visit including the Archaeological 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.

The Rhodes Aquarium is located in the basement of the Hydrobiological Station in the north of the island and is a popular outing. Children enjoy interacting with animals at the Farma of Rhodes Petting Zoo. They will meet ostriches, llamas, kangaroos, ponies, deer, camels and many more animals.

Another popular family-friendly excursion is to the Valley of Butterflies where you walk through the narrow forest and see thousands of butterflies that descend during the summer.
