Overview

Pool Villa/House Modern Self-Catered Beach Nearby Ideal for Kids

You’ll love staying in Villa Rafail, located in a quiet residential area near Lindos, on the southeast coast of the Dodecanese island of Rhodes in the Mediterranean Sea. This modern villa has two bedrooms, and can comfortably accommodate up to six guests, ideal for a family, or friends’ sharing vacation. Villa Rafail is a charming semi-detached villa, set in its own grounds and lawned gardens, separated by a high stone wall for privacy. The villa is built over two storeys of classic white-washed walls, and benefits from panoramic sea views from the balconies.

Villa Rafail comes complete with private parking, and complimentary air conditioning and Wi-Fi throughout. The villa’s well-maintained grounds are home to your own swimming pool, manicured lawns, and a play area. The interiors are bright and airy, with floor-to-ceiling sliding doors, that open onto the terrace and flood the house with lots of natural light and cooling breezes. The villa has been furnished with contemporary pieces and decorated in a palette of crisp clean whites, sandy beiges, and hues of sea blues. The ambience is warm and welcoming, a real holiday home from home.

Enter the villa at the ground floor level, where there is a light open plan tile floor living space. The seating area has two beige sofas, one of which is a double sofa bed, there is a contrasting armchair, and wooden side tables, with a sideboard housing a flat-screen smart television that has pre-loaded streaming channels included. The adjacent white kitchen is fully equipped with all of the appliances you will need for a happy holiday, including a family-size fridge freezer, a built-in oven and hob, and a microwave. There is an indoor white table and brown chair dining set, perfect for a meeting at breakfast to discuss the day’s plans. A shower room completes the ground floor. Take the stairs to the first floor, where you will find two bedrooms, both with double beds, plenty of wardrobe space, and superbly furnished sea-view balconies, where you can sip cocktails and watch the sunset. There is a shared bathroom, which has a bathtub and shower head, a hand basin and WC.

We are sure you will be spending most of your day on the terrace and in the gardens. The step entry pool is just right for a cooling dip, whilst the surrounding sun loungers and shady parasols invite you to lay back, relax, and enjoy the vibe. Seek some shade under the ancient olive tree that takes centre stage on the gorgeous green grass, or get active with a game of ping pong or billiards in the play area. As dusk falls meet at the soft seating area under the shaded pergola for sundowners, before dining alfresco with food freshly cooked on the barbeque, and raising a glass of local wine to a happy holiday.

Villa Rafail can be found in a quiet residential area near the village of Lindos, on the southeastern coastline of the ancient Greek island of Rhodes, the jewel in the crown of the Dodecanese Islands. The villa is thirty-eight kilometres from Rhodes’ Diagaros International airport, a scenic hour’s drive away. In the village of Lindos, 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. Lindos has its own Acropolis, reputedly one of the most impressive sights in Rhodes, and the most idyllic beaches.

The nearest beach is St Paul’s, a seven-minute drive to this quiet resort with crystal clear easy entry waters and sandy beach. Within a few kilometres, the beautiful beaches of Navarone Bay, Pefki, and Kavos can be found. A short drive will get to the major sights of Kalithea Springs, Rhodes Waterpark, Rodini Park, Diagoras Stadium, Andreas Papandreou Park, and the Acropolis of Rhodes. For some holiday hot spots, and tourist entertainment make your way north of the villa to Faliraki, where those who like the nightlife, will find lots of lively clubs and bars. Rhodes really is a walker’s island with almost fourteen thousand square kilometres of local flora and fauna to explore. Walk through forests, hike up mountains, discover ancient sites along the way, and maybe stop at a welcoming village taverna to sample the local wine, honey, and herbs.

The ancient town of Rhodes is an hour’s 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, architecture, and culture have been influenced by the Knights of St John, and Venetian and Ottoman conquests. Make sure you visit the Palace of the Grand Masters, the Castle of Monolithos, the Suleyamniye Mosque, the Archaeological Museum, and the Museum of Modern Greek Art. Don’t miss the many ornate churches, and 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, then take a tour of the island. Make sure you take a boat trip, or better still charter your own yacht, and sail the high seas. Spend the day swimming and snorkelling, discovering secret bays and hidden coves, and enjoy a selection of Greek mezes on board. Venture further afield and island hop on a high-speed catamaran to the adjacent Dodecanese destinations, or even cross the sea and take a trip to Turkey, where you can enjoy some freshly caught fish feast in Fethiye.

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 are lots to keep your younger ones occupied with a stay at Villa Rafail and the historic island of Rhodes. Starting with the villa itself, the private pool is perfect for a day of the swim, splashing, and playing, and when it’s your own there are 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, and there is a billiard and ping pong table to keep them amused too. The nearest beach is St Paul’s, a short seven-minute drive away, with its golden sands and warm easy entry Mediterranean Sea water.

The southeastern 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 spy 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 thrill-seekers take your teenagers to the local parasailing, kitesurfing, jet skiing, paddle boarding, scuba diving, and sea kayaking clubs. Back to dry land and wheels, with a Trikke Tour, a 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, climbing 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.
