Situated in the cosmopolitan Ixia area close to Ialyssos Beach, the impressive Villa Zephyr is in an excellent location close to Rhodes Town and the airport. Featuring a spacious outdoor terrace and private pool, this well-equipped villa can accommodate up to nine guests.
A great base for your stay on the island, Ixia is around 5km from the centre of the capital, Rhodes Town, with most of the other highlights of the island, such as Lindos Acropolis, within a 1-hour drive. With the beach just a 5-minute drive away, Villa Zephyr is well placed for those seeking sun or perhaps some waves – Ialyssos is one of the top surf spots on Rhodes.
The villa has a large outdoor space incorporating a pool, hot tub, dining area, barbecue, sun loungers, seating and luxurious day beds. It’s easy to see how you could have trouble tearing yourself away from this terrace – it really has everything you need to relax in style.
Inside, the style continues. The open-plan living area is decorated in subtle tones and features a spacious lounge, dining table and chairs and a magnificent kitchen with a large fridge freezer, oven, microwave and cookware provided. A smart TV with satellite channels and Netflix is ready to entertain you.
There are four elegant bedrooms to choose from – two with large double beds and two twins. The double bedrooms offer access to a large, furnished balcony, and all are air conditioned and provide lots of storage space. One en-suite bathroom with a shower, and a main bathroom with bathtub, can be found at Villa Zephyr.
It’s easy to reach Ixia and start enjoying your holiday – the villa is less than 8km from Diagoras International Airport. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Rhodes Town is a must, as the home to major historic landmarks like the Palace of the Grand Masters and the Colossus of Rhodes.
Nearby Filerimos Monastery is also worth a visit. Further afield, you have amazing destinations like Kallithea Springs and the Valley of the Butterflies waiting for you, while the south of the island offers beautiful Lindos and wonderful Prasonisi Beach.

You have a lot to see on Rhodes, one of the largest Greek islands. Happily, with most of the island within an hour’s drive of the capital, it’s easy to pack a lot in.
The medieval Old Town is the highlight of the capital city, also called Rhodes. Located in the north east of the island, Rhodes Town prides itself on being one of the best-preserved medieval towns in Europe. It’s not stuck in the past, however. You’ll find it buzzing with life in its many restaurants, bars, shops and the busy New Market on the harbourside.
The big attraction of the fortified town is the Palace of the Grand Masters, parts of which you can tour. Within the complex, you’ll find the Rhodes’ Archaeological Museum and, nearby, the famous Street of the Knights with its seven inns. The palace hosts various exhibitions and performances too, so it’s worth checking out what will be happening when you’re there.
The scenic Mandraki Port is also close, as are the Rhodes Aquarium and Elli Beach. Landmarks like the Rhodes Acropolis and the Fort of St Nicholas are worth looking out for, while the Museum of Modern Greek Art and the National Theatre provide an introduction to the local culture.
Rhodes Town’s nightlife is the stuff of legend. A huge casino stays open late into the night, and there’s clubbing and countless bars on Orfanidou Street and, in the Old Town, Miltiadou Street. If you’re dining in town, you’ll find traditional Greek cuisine and seafood are menu staples, but there’s a good variety of food on offer all around the city.
About 10km from Rhodes Town, the 15th-century Filerimos Monastery is found on a hill above Ialyssos. An impressive building, where you can also see the foundations of an Ancient Greek temple, the monastery lies on a route that offers some stunning hilltop views over the island.
If beautiful countryside is your thing, the Valley of the Butterflies is one of the best-loved attractions on the island, at its finest in the summer when the butterflies are most likely to swarm into the valley. The Epta Piges (Seven Springs) are another highlight, with the waterfalls complemented by a lake and peaceful woodland.
The jewel of the south, the whitewashed village of Lindos is known for its sophisticated nightspots and rooftop restaurants. There are also lovely beaches, St Paul’s Bay being an idyllic standout, but the big landmark is the Lindos Acropolis. Standing high on the clifftop, the climb is steep but the views are truly breathtaking.
Right at the southern tip of the island there’s Prasonisi Beach with its landmark lighthouse. Prasonisi is a popular spot for kite-surfers and windsurfers, and you can find several alternatives on the western coast where conditions are similarly good. Among the highlights of this quieter stretch of coast are the remains of Kritinia Castle and Kamiros Skala village, famed for its fish restaurants.
|Nearest Ferry Port||
Mandraki Port (Rhodes)
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.
The kids will be very happy indeed at Villa Zephyr. With a hot tub, outdoor pool and huge terrace to sun themselves on, this is one amazing holiday home, and it comes with Wi-Fi, Netflix, karaoke and Smart TV. There’s even a ping pong table, if all that wasn’t enough.
There’s a lot to see around the island too. First up, the Farma of Rhodes is great for younger children – an interactive wildlife experience where kids can pet and feed animals like lemurs, llamas and camels. Not far away is Valley of the Butterflies, a 600-acre nature reserve with a restaurant and a natural history museum, as well as lots of woodland areas – perfect for a picnic or a walk, this is one you can really enjoy as a family.
Head to Faliraki for the island’s big water park. Simply called ‘WaterPark’, you’ll find it’s packed with rides and slides for all ages. An aquarium and the Kartodrome go-karting track are among the resort’s other family attractions, along with the Astronomy Café. In nearby Apollonos, this intriguing place is easy to spot thanks to its observatory dome.
The east coast provides many more beaches they will love. Just south of Faliraki, Anthony Quinn Bay is a favoured snorkelling spot, while the main resort has a much bigger beach with all sorts of facilities. Quieter choices include Agathi and the pretty St Paul’s Bay in Lindos. If they’re into water-sports, try Prasonisi Beach at the southern end of the island.
In Rhodes Town, there’s a huge range of shops and cafés, multiple cinemas, the lovely Elli Beach and peaceful Rodini Park. Near Elli Beach, the Rhodes Aquarium is a fascinating place to visit for those interested in marine life, while insect fans will love the Bee Museum of Rhodes, about 15 minutes’ drive from the centre of town.
If your kids enjoy their history lessons, be sure to check out Rhodes’ castles. There are several dotted around the island, all of them free to visit. Feraklos, Monolithos and Kritinia are among those with beautiful sea views. Rhodes Town has even more of historic interest – the medieval Old Town, Street of the Knights and the Palace of the Grand Masters among its big hitters.
The island has some lovely spots for simply enjoying the wonders of nature. Among the best destinations for enjoying some fresh air and beautiful scenery are Epta Piges, the famous Seven Springs of Rhodes, and Kallithea Springs, a dreamy seaside spa. The former is found in Archangelos, about 10 minutes’ drive from Rhodes Toy Museum, while the latter lies around 10 minutes south of the capital.
