Lahania village

Lahania/Lachania Village is a rural village at the total south of Rhodes island. The north of Rhodes is the busy tourist area. But people who want a quiet holiday in an unspoilt area head to the south where things are more natural. Mountains, rare deer and other animals along with historic walking routes and lots of meadows and farming land make this area unique and beautiful. Around 30 years ago the village was deserted Some artists discovered this village and rebuilt a lot of its ruins, thus creating an authentic and artistic atmosphere. Luckily unlike other places in the world it was kept like this and the village still has this rural non touristic artistic and authentic atmosphere over it. With narrow streets and whitewashed houses, that form a labyrinth and all leading to the main square of Lahania where there is a traditional restaurant and the local church along with its famous priest papa yiorgos who owns the another restaurant on the main street of Lahania. If you really crave the feeling of the hours slowly ticking away in a relaxed and beautiful location, then Lahania is the place to be.

Heavenly vacation

  • 5 of 5

The perfect place to enjoy your vacation on Rhodes. Away from the crowdy touristic places. This house is well equiped, clean and well maintained. The chloride free swimmingpool is the max. At walking distance, in the center of the village you can enjoy the real family food in taverna platanos. Excellent home made food, friendly people and very cosy.

Beautiful house in south of Rhodos

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks in October 2012 at the Meltemi house, and it was so perfect, we had so much fun in the house, everything was nice prepared and we get a bottle of wine and some Greek snacks as a present on our arrival.

The south of Rhodos is more calm, out of season there a not so many shops but we arranged it perfectly. There are a supermarket and fruit and vegetable shop in Gennadi

The house is perfect with kids or two friends, so everybody could do their one thing and there is a lot of place for everybody.

Thank you Gudrun, we will come again in any of your houses
