Kalithea is situated against a setting of world-famous spa baths and stunning beaches on the eastern coast of Rhodes. The tiny inlets and coves sprinkled with sculptured rocks and caves are gorgeous and offer endless exploratory promise. Diving and snorkelling are very popular as well as the other watersports on offer. The Kalithea Spa was built in 1920 by the Italians. Following its restoration, the spa is a top sight. Many guests visit the area for its crystal clear azure waters and magical scenery.
 
The picturesque village of Koskinou is utterly charming. It is famed as the prettiest village in Rhodes and is sprinkled with colourful plant pots and traditional Greek houses decorated 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. You feel so alive and happy meandering through the lanes. The facades, doors and windows of the 17th and 18th century neoclassical houses are bright and cheerful, many with carved or etched designs. Small patios and gardens compete in charisma and splendour. You won’t be able to resist peeking in!
 
Faliraki Beach is the most popular and most highly organised beach in Rhodes. It is more than 5km wide and boasts golden sand, trendy beach bars, sun loungers and parasols, just about every watersport imaginable and even bungee jumping. The nightlife is incredible with fabulous restaurants, bars and nightclubs and the Faliraki Water Park is fantastic fun.
 
The Medieval Old Town of Rhodes is an intricate warren of busy little commercial streets and delightful, quiet alleys. It is the oldest inhabited medieval town in Europe and has UNESCO World Cultural Heritage status. The Old Town is full of Byzantine and Gothic churches, Medieval buildings, mosques, traditional fountains, oriental motifs and many boutique shops and restaurants. The highlights of the Old Town are the Palace of the Grand Master, the Archaeological Museum housed in the Gothic building of the Great Hospital of the Knights, Knight’s Street and some of the mosques. It is incredibly buzzy and alive!

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.

  • Just perfect!

    Posted by Julsie on 27/04/2020

    This is our second visit to The Grande Dame Villa and it’s just as perfect as before. Spotlessly clean with beautiful large rooms. A car is recommended as the villa is tucked away, but it means that it’s completely private. Stelios is an amazing host and I can’t recommend this villa highly enough.

  • Absolutely fantastic!

    Posted by Philip on 27/04/2020

    This is a luxurious, spacious, modern and super well equipped villa. Probably the best we've ever had the pleasure of staying in. There's a fantastic pool area, two well equipped kitchens, a great outdoor eating and sitting area and wonderful, well maintained gardens to explore. We are two families of 10 and one toddler. There was more than enough space for everyone. Never once felt on top of each other. Stelios, the host was super helpful. We didn't bring a car but Stelios was a call away from arranging anything we needed. Transfers, taxi, private chief etc. He's a very easy to talk to, pleasant man. Like most Greeks I've met. Maria the cleaner is also fantastic. Very friendly, non obtrusive and kept the place absolutely spotless everyday. Honestly, she was fantastic. George the private chef is also a must try. We had him cook for us twice. Once for a bbq and once for more traditional Rhodesian food. He was amazing. Money well spent and such a lovely man. The food was some of the best I've had on all my holidays to Greece. Fresh, flavorsome and prepared with really skill and a love of food. I never usually say this but I would 100% stay at this villa again. It's one of the very few holidays we've been able to say everything was absolutely perfect. Thanks you Stelios for a terrific break. P.s some reviews mention the need for a car. We didn't bother. There's a lidl and a local supermarket perhaps 15min walks away. We walked in without any problems while pushing a pram. Some hills but nothing too major. Taxis into Rhodes town are also cheap. around 15 euro.
