1890- STONEBUILT 2 HOUSES MADE INTO ONE, 3BEDR., ON A CLIFF W. VALLEY VIEWS

Koskinou House Rental Photos and Description

Different levels of roof terraces, 2 bathr., spacious house sleep 9, great views

The house consisted of 2 houses and has been made into one, it is spacious and has rooms, corners, halls and different terraces. The house is made of stone, which makes it rather cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The sala has the famous floor made of pebbles that are hand laid one by one, and which nowadays cost a fortune, and in the past was a sign of status. This is a true newly and heavenly experience as these cool pointy stones tickle you under the feet and acts as an acupuncture under the foot soles, priceless!! The courtyard has a built in b.b.q. and a built in stone tap with a big dining table that makes long cozy evenings. there are three bedrooms with double bed and in one of the bedroom is also a single bed. there are different halls, so in case of emergency, a folding bed, or 2 baby cots can be placed. the master bedrooms is very spacious and has a small bathroom en suite. But the most spectacular part of the house is the superb view: the valley view.

The village: Koskinou village exists of 2 parts: the old village/town, and around it the new area. As our interest with renting, and in general, only goes out to traditional, authentic places, we only speak about the old part in this website. In the old part (which is a village of its own), the houses date back to the 17th,18th and 19th century. Like in many places in Greece about 40 years ago people started abandoning their old stone family houses, to move into modern cement buildings out of the village centers or creating new centers. The houses then became ruins and were rediscovered and bought in their original state by foreigners, Greeks from Athens and some times local Greeks. They renovated these beautiful houses and recently all kinds of committees are being formed to keep or bring back the houses in the authentic state. Typical for the village is the sala (living room) with a big stone arch (Kamarra) through the middle to make a semi separation.

Chochlakia: Another thing that is typical are the chochlakia, floors in which pebbles (found on the beach) are laid, stone by stone into a typical, magnificent mosaic floor. These floors nowadays cost a fortune to produce. Again a typical thing of the houses in Koskinou is that they have wooden sofas in the sala, high raised platforms, on which one or 2 mattresses were laid, for sleeping or where they used to drink tea. The last typical thing for Kosknou are the courtyards surrounded by high walls for total privacy and closed off by iron handmade doors with a beautiful design in it.

There are some small springs at the edges of the old village and there is a museum somewhere in the middle, where one can see how the people used to live and how the houses looked like in the older days: well worth a visit. Then there is a lunch/tea room (called Stefani, which is a circle of flowers that people hang on their doors at the first of May), run by a Finnish/Swedish lady, who serves coffee, tea, some cakes and ice cream. Attached to this café is a showroom/museum totally left or brought back in the traditional way, so again one can experience how life was in the centuries before. This lady gives cooking lessons and Greek lessons.

A "Castle" in the old town of Koskinou

A "Castle" in the old town of Koskinou
  • 5 of 5
Our children called it always castle, because of the old stone walls. A very nice house in the centre of Koskinou. We enjoyed our stay very much. The house is very well equiped - the kitchen, the bathrooms, everything is perfect.
The way to the beaches is near (20 Minutes by car). There are no cars in the old town. The parking space is nearby - just 50 Meters from the house.

Koskinou
Car: recommended

Koskinou, a romantic village close to Rhodes Old Town. In the old part where our house is, the houses date back to the 17th,18th and 19th century. The streets of Koskinou are covered by chochlakia (pebbles), tiles and marble. There are some small springs at the edges of the old village and there is a museum somewhere in the middle, where one can see how the people used to live and how the houses looked like in the older days: well worth a visit.The atmosphere in Koskinou is quite a quiet, friendly, relaxed, modest but also a vivid and lively one. There is no sign, non whatsoever of any hurdy burdy tourist traps.There are several sandy beaches just around and a short drive away from Koskinou, Thermen Kalithea is a very special beach place which was originally a health spa, built in the Moorish style by the Italians in the 1920's, they have a museum on the beach, a grand cafe and luxury sunbeds. Entrance asked Waterpark- big fun for the younger ones, water entertainment.
