Beautifully appointed Villa Kruper is situated in Lakhania village, just a five minute drive from Gennadi Beach in southern Rhodes. Featuring a stunning whitewashed terrace area with pool, this classic Greek villa is just a thirty minute drive from the ever-popular Lindos, site of the Lindos Acropolis, and twenty minutes from the great windsurfing beach of Prasonisi.

The enticing walled terrace area offers privacy as well as some lovely features. The pool is flanked by sun loungers and a dining area with barbecue, creating a space that’s particularly atmospheric as evening falls. Overlooking this, the house also has a chilled out roof terrace. Should you wish, you can even hire a projector and watch a movie on the outdoor wall.

Inside, Villa Kruper boasts a charming open-plan living area on the pool level. There is a dining table and chairs, seating area, TV and fireplace, as well as a kitchen equipped with a washing machine, dishwasher and other useful appliances.

You have three bedrooms, each one fully air-conditioned and with Smart TV and minibar. Two of the bedrooms are doubles, the other a twin. Three bathrooms, two of them en-suite, are also found at Villa Kruper. The décor, in white and neutral tones, gives these rooms a very relaxing feel.

The rural village of Lakhania offers restaurants serving Greek and Italian food, as well as a small supermarket. More amenities can be found in Gennadi, where a long, pebbly beach is perfect for hanging out. During summer, there are regular beach parties on Sundays.

It’s a great base for exploring the south of Rhodes, yet still within a reasonable distance of the many attractions of the north. The island’s capital, Rhodes Town, is just over one hour’s drive away and is a must-visit with its well-preserved, medieval Old Town, the Palace of the Grand Masters and the Street of the Knights.

Elsewhere, you have naturally beautiful areas like Epta Piges and the Valley of the Butterflies, and many more stunning beaches including Tsampika and Traganou, just off the coastal road to Rhodes Town.

Full of fascinating history and idyllic countryside, Rhodes has many amazing experiences waiting for you. Its historic landmarks and countless gorgeous beaches all add to its charm, making it great for sightseeing and outdoor activities.

The capital city, Rhodes, occupies the island’s north-eastern tip. It’s known for its architecturally impressive Old Town, hailed as one of the best-preserved medieval towns in Europe, and landmark sights like the Palace of the Grand Masters and the Street of the Knights. Other highlights including the lofty Roloi Clock Tower which will offer a fine view over the city if you make the ascent.

However historic it may be, Rhodes is very much a city of today. You will find a vibrant commercial centre and plenty of nightlife. A large casino stays open late into the night, and there’s clubbing and lively bars on Orfanidou Street and on the Old Town’s Miltiadou Street.

Rhodes is packed with restaurants, and entertainment can be found at the National Theatre and the city’s multiplex movie theatres. It’s also the home of the pretty Rodini Park, said to be the oldest landscaped park in the world, the Museum of Modern Greek Art and the Marine Aquarium, located by the busy Elli Beach.

Down the coast, Faliraki is a resort of family fun, with a well-organised beach and a large water-park. There are many more beaches down the eastern coast, most at least a little quieter than Faliraki. Look out for gems like Traganou, Tsampika, Afantou and Agathi, and right at the bottom of the island, stunning Prasonisi – this well-loved beach attracts surfers and kite-surfers in numbers.

An absolute highlight of the east coast is the iconic Lindos Acropolis – its ancient ruins are situated on the clifftop at Lindos and offer spectacular views of the Mediterranean. The village of Lindos is itself well worth a visit, with beautiful, whitewashed buildings, rooftop restaurants and laidback nightlife.

Rhodes’ natural beauty is evident when you visit two of its finest outdoor attractions. The Valley of the Butterflies is a charming nature reserve of some 600 acres, which fills with swarms of butterflies in summer. The Epta Piges (or Seven Springs) is a calming oasis with magnificent waterfalls, a lake, playground and restaurant – you can make your way between this pair of unmissable destinations in around 35 minutes.

If the Lindos Acropolis appeals, you might also enjoy venturing west to the ancient city of Kameiros – another major archaeological site which sits on a stunning stretch of coast. Other notable heritage attractions include the Filerimos Monastery, one of several around the island, and numerous churches and castles. Look out for Kritinia Castle, the rugged ruins of which are right by the sea too.

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

There is no shortage of things for kids to do in Rhodes. With its gorgeous scenery, wonderful beaches, and great family attractions, it’s the perfect place to get active together.

Many Rhodes beaches have excellent family facilities, with appealing spots like Lindos, Vlycha and Kalathos worth a look. Kolymbia and Agathi are among quieter options, while Falaraki is busy, long and often very hot, but well equipped. The town’s big water-park is one good alternative to the beach.

Head to Apollonos, south of Faliraki, for the fascinating Astronomy Café with its big observatory dome, telescopes, huge sundial and more. It’s fantastic for an evening visit, and the actual café is pretty good too. Alternatively, check out the Kartodrome go-karting track.

Not far from Rhodes Town, you will also find the island’s Bee Museum – a one-of-a-kind museum created in honour of these industrious insects. Rhodes Town has much more that’s great for kids, including multiplex cinemas and the peaceful Rodini Park, while the Marine Aquarium by Elli Beach is brimming with exotic aquatic life like turtles and octopuses.

Fancy taking a boat trip? Then head to Mandraki Port in Rhodes Town. You can go on a cruise to another island, for example a day trip to beautiful Symi, or take a trip down the coast to stunning Lindos. Right on the clifftop, the Lindos Acropolis is truly unforgettable and in contention for the title of Rhodes’ biggest attraction.

Nature-loving kids will want to visit the Epta Piges – seven magical waterfalls in a charming woodland setting. There is also a dark, underground tunnel (perhaps an acquired taste), but the waterside restaurant, children’s playground and swimming in the lake are sure to be a hit.

Another must-see, the Valley of the Butterflies nature reserve is especially enchanting in summer, when it fills with swarms of colourful butterflies. The Farma of Rhodes offers kids the chance to pet, feed and get close to friendly animals including ponies, llamas and lemurs – young children will love meeting them.

The Rhodes Toy Museum, situated near the village of Archipoli, is a good one to combine with Epta Piges – they are only a few minutes apart. This free museum showcases Greek playthings from down the decades, with more than 5,000 items including video games, jukeboxes, wooden toys and arcade machines. You can also play with some of the toys. It’s a real find that adults will love as much as the kids.

Rhodes is a great place to enjoy a meal together. There are lots of family-friendly restaurants all over the island, serving up sweet treats like honey and cinnamon doughnuts (loukoumadhes), the mastic-loaded, chewy ice cream politiko pagoto and traditional Greek baklava.
