The elegant Villa Plato offers a wonderful sea view from its location on the outskirts of Faliraki, something which up to eight guests can enjoy. Contemporary interiors and a gorgeous private pool lend plenty of style to this 4-bedroom villa overlooking Anthony Quinn Bay on the eastern coast of Rhodes.

This striking, modern villa sits in well-kept gardens with palm trees and a large outdoor pool and terrace. There are many places to sit and enjoy the sun, or get together with friends over a meal, including a pergola with a large, stone-built barbecue. A covered terrace area has a dining table and chairs, and there is more seating on the upper terrace which offers an even more spectacular ocean view.

An open-plan living area inside the property gives you another place to chill out, equipped with large, comfy sofas and flat screen TV with DVD. Just across the room is a dining area, and the kitchen is adjacent too, with oven, microwave, fridge freezer, dishwasher and lots of other useful amenities.

The property offers free WiFi throughout, as well as a home cinema room and a gym area. All of the four bedrooms are equipped with a flat screen TV and two have en suite bathrooms. This includes the master bedroom, where there is a hydro-massage bath tub and separate shower, as well as a king-size bed and walk-in wardrobe. A bedroom with bunk beds is ideal for children.

Within a short drive of the island’s most highly regarded beach, Tsambika, Villa Plato is also close to Faliraki’s countless restaurants, beach bars and cafés. You will be well-placed for the popular water park, and all kinds of water-sports from jet-skiing to paragliding.

Virtually all the island’s top sights are within a 30-minute drive. Among them, be sure to see the Epta Piges, where the seven springs continue to bubble away, and visit the Lindos Acropolis for some incredibly extensive coastal views. The medieval old town of Rhodes itself, a World Heritage site, is another one for your list.

Oliver Approved

What you should know…

  • Whilst the address is Faliraki, guests should be aware the villa is in an out of town position and 3km from the centre.
  • For the same reason a vehicle is recommended, however if guests prefer there are taxis available in the area.

Set on the outskirts of Faliraki, it’s just 3km drive into the town. Faliraki boosts an aquarium, lovely beaches, watersports, scuba diving, an astronomy café, boat trips and lots more.

Hugely popular as a tourist destination, Rhodes is an island with more than its fair share of natural beauty and landmark sights. Easy to reach, with an international airport, Diagoras, about 20 minutes’ drive from the capital, it would be a shame to miss out on discovering its charms for yourself.

Rhodes Town is as good place to visit and lies on the northern tip of the island. A walk along the medieval walls of the Old Town will offer you some beautiful views, accessible from the must-see Palace of the Grand Masters. Part of a World Heritage Site, this is also the location of a fine museum which offers the chance to familiarise yourself with Rhodian history, extending as far back as the 3rd century BC.

Another museum worth checking out is the Museum of Modern Greek Art, with an eclectic collection only rivalled by Athens. The New Town area is visually appealing itself, with an Art Deco influence present in much of its architecture. Mandráki harbour is the home of Evangelismós Cathedral, where you can find some impressive frescoes.

The Lindos Acropolis is as spectacular as the coastal views it enjoys, and definitely worth seeing. Down the coast, you also have resorts such as Ammoudes, Kolympia and, perhaps best-known, Faliraki. While its reputation may precede it, this is not the hedonism capital it once was. A children’s water-park and the beautiful Anthony Quinn Bay may tempt you there during the day, and an aquarium and scuba-diving school also embrace the aquatic theme.

At the very southern tip of the island, Prasonisi’s location – dividing the Aegean and the Mediterranean – is considered prime wind-surfing territory. But if that sounds a little too exhilarating, Rhodes’ more sedate attractions like the Valley of the Butterflies, numerous wineries and the seven springs of the wonderfully scenic Epta Piges nature reserve, will provide just as pleasant a day out.

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.

This is a villa the kids will love, not least because of its proximity to one of Europe’s largest and most exciting water parks.

Reviews

  • Wow!

    Posted by J.A. on 29/08/2017

    Wow"...that's the first reaction on arrival...and the same every day you wake up and gaze upon the beautiful view, framed by the exceptionally well appointed villa you are privileged to be staying in. The accommodation was perfect for a family of 5, as the there are three full time bedrooms that have ample [luxurious] amounts of space, each with their own en-suite. The fourth bedroom doubles as an additional cinema room/media chill out space, with its own en-suite, but as expected for such a room it is a large sofa bed rather than permanent bed. The facilities were as advertised / pictured, but the scale of the place doesn't really hit home until you arrive and spend time relaxing (or partying) within it. It isn't a long journey from the airport, and to be fair we were checking in at 11pm without any hassle or quibble from our host. Basically, consider yourself lucky if you manage to find an available week for this amazing property. Hire car will help you with flexibility [as we had] but there are plenty of taxis servicing the local area/even entire island, so I wouldn't be concerned if I didn't have one.

  • Super comfortable villa with a great pool
