Lachania

Situated 79km from Rhodes Town, the village of Lachania is reputed to be one of the prettiest villages on the whole of Rhodes, second only to Lindos. Nestled in the southern foothills, with a mountain range as a backdrop, it has panoramic views of the surrounding countryside and valleys stretching down to the quiet and unspoilt beaches of the south which are sparsely populated even in the height of summer. There are numerous beaches to choose from, some of which are known only to the locals who may tell you where they are if you befriend them.

This peaceful village retains its traditional charm with just a handful of tavernas, a village store and traditional houses nestled in the narrow lanes, many of which have been lovingly restored and inhabited by a happy mix of foreign buyers and Greeks, all of who have a mutual respect in keeping the traditional feel of the village and for local culture and history, which has been shown in their keen interest in restoring the old village properties to their original glory.

On entering the village, you are “welcomed” by an old windmill, as if to remind you that this was, and still is, a farming community. In fact, the name Lachania comes from the Greek word 'Lachaniká' meaning Vegetables. The 19th century church of St George can be found next to village square towards the bottom of the village, with a large plane trees offering visitors cool shade from the hot summer sun. Near the square is the old Olive press which is now called 'Magana' and used as a cultural centre in the village. This has recently been renovated and is used for holding exhibitions for foreign as well as local artists. In fact, for years, Lachania has been known as the artists' village of Rhodes.

How to get there

If you’re coming from Rhodes town in the north, take the Rhodes-Lindos National Highway. You will go past the villages and resorts of Asgourou, Koskinou, Afandou, Archangelos, Massari and Kalathos. About 1km after Kalathos, you will come to an intersection. Turn right, taking the road for Pilona village. Go past Pilona, Lardos and Gennadi. Continue to drive for a further 9km then take the right-hand turning marked for Lachania and follow the road up until you reach the village.

Attractions

Near the square is the old olive press, the 'Magana', which has been renovated and now functions as a cultural centre, and is a place of expression for local and foreign artists.

There are many churches to visit, There’s the 19th century church of St. George in the village square; the medieval church and monastery of Zoodochos Pighi (Source of Life) at Plimyri, is built on older Roman ruins and is graced by 16th century Corinthian columns. Recent excavations in the region also revealed important archaeological discoveries.

Festivals

· The 1st weekend of August - The wheat festival.

· 5th May - The festivity of Aghia Eirini (St. Irene) which is marked by a church service followed by the usual cultural events and traditional dances and songs.

On the second floor, which is accessed from the outside of the house, there is a huge sun terrace with extensive views of the village, the lush surrounding countryside and the lovely blue Mediterranean and a self contained annexe with a double bedroom that can sleep two people, a kitchen and a bathroom. The private garden also contains a Mediterranean kitchen, outside shower and bathroom and a traditional bread oven. The house has a stunning porch area which is perfect for al fresco dining.

The house has television and free air conditioning. Both kitchens contains coffee makers. There are full cooking facilities as well as fridge freezers and the annexe kitchen has a washing machine. The sala or main living room is lovingly furnished by the owners and has a working traditional fireplace.

The beautifully landscaped gardens at Theofilos House provide a truly secluded and peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of every day life. It is a fabulous detached home that pleasingly combines the antique with the modern.
