This little brown stone house, available year round, with reduced rate off-season, is perfect for a couple, or individual (see pictures, could accomodate small children too). If you want a real Greek town that is not a tourist town, but only a fifteen minute drive from popular Lindos, and only a five minute drive to both Stegna beach and Tsampika beach, this place is ideal. The town of Archangelos has well-stocked supermarkets and amazing fruit and vegetables stores, for food, and specialty stores for computers and phones, and other services, car rental and tour agency, and full medical services, pharmacies, and restaurants and gyro and souvlaki places, within a short walking distance of the house, which sits on the side of the hill next to the acropolis/castle, overlooking the town. The neighborhood is quiet and the house is tucked in a private corner under grapevines and nestled in a terraced garden. The castle ruins/acropolis is steps away, and contains the small church of Saint George and has a stunning view of sea, mountains and town, and is generally deserted, no tourists. (There are no gates or admissions fees, just walk right in any time of day or night and enjoy sunrise, sunset, moonrise, etc.) Also within a few steps are several lovely churches, some Byzantine, with lovely frescos, and the main parish church of Archangel Michael is also steps away. Monastery Tsampika is a five minute drive or just under half an hour walk. At Stegna beach are several topnotch tavernas with traditional seafood and other Greek fare.The location of the village on the East coast halfway down the island is convenient for sightseeing by car or bus all around our lovely island. The house had WIFI and AC, and for winter stays, heat and a beautiful stone fioreplace.

A truly Greek experience
This was a very special holiday for us returning to Rhodes once again - truly it is our island of love. We stayed in Kalathos and Chariki (twice) previously, our first visit to Kalathos was 31 years ago. Strangely we had never been to Archangelos or Stegna before and what a surprise. Hidden gems. Archangelos is not on the main tourist trail and so retains its Greek feel. This little house is on the edge of the town nestled behind the owners property. It is just splendid, compact and bijou, with everything needed for a relaxing break, including an air conditioning unit for those rather hot days and nights. I felt as if I were at home enjoying yoghurt, peaches and honey for breakfast outside under the vine. We are lucky enough these days to be able to afford a car and to eat out lunchtimes and evening. Archangelos is not a culinary centre it is a 'fast food' town but Stegna has some very good restaurants Maria's Taverna became our firm favourite, home cooked food at a very reasonable price. Konstantins in Kalathos is also very good, a bit of a drive but worth it is you fancy something a little more refined. We did a number of lunches and a couple of evening meals there.
Thanks so much for your lovely review. So glad you had an enjoyable time at Castle Garden. We enjoyed having you and look forward to seeing you again. You are most welcome any time!
sehr ursprüngliches Häuschen in einer ruhigen Gegend
Wir hatten 3 sehr schöne Wochen auf Rhodos. Obwohl die Unterkunft am Ortsrand liegt, ist man in 5 Minuten zu Fuß im "Zentrum" mit vielen Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, Restaurants und mitten im Rhodischen Leben. Einige Kritikpunkte gibt es aber: Das Bett (Schlafboden) ist für 2 Personen viel zu schmal (etwa 1,35 m) und die Matratze war sehr hart. Der Kleiderschrank ist nur erreichbar, wenn man auf dem Bett steht, und das untere Schubfach lässt sich nicht komplett herausziehen. Ansonsten war alles da, was für einen Urlaub benötigt wird.
Thank you for your visit. We are glad you enjoyed your stay.
Certainly tastes vary when it comes to sleeping arrangements, and for that reason we ordered a "medium" mattress for the house, neither "soft" nor "hard", so we are sorry it did not meet your tastes, but you could have mentioned it and we would have supplied you with some soft padding.
As for the size of the mattress, it is a double, which is the standard for sleeping two people, couples, world-wide. Again, tastes vary, but....
As for "standing on the bed", one needs to realize that it is a sleeping loft--the floor of the sleeping loft is the bed, one is not standing up on top of a "bed" to open the closet. (as one can see from the pictures)
Any concerns any guest has can be mentioned to the owners, who are readily available next door, as is their friend (who meets all the guests and assists with managing the guesthouse) who is fluent in English and lives only a few steps away, all of whom are all too willing and able to accommodate any reasonable request.
Sehr geschmackvolle, kleine Unterkunft
Kleines, sehr ruhiges Häuschen mit netten Besitzern neben an. Alles ist vorhanden. Sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Nur das Bett ist fur altere Menschen nicht geignet, da nur uber kleine Stufen zuganglich. Der Blick auf das Dorf und die Umgebung sowie die kleine Akropolis sehr harmonisch. Frühstücken und Essen unter einem Weindach. Ein idealer Entspannungsort für den Grosstadt geplagten.
So glad you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for your lovely review. We look forward to seeing you again!
Sehr stimmungsvolles kleines Steinhäuschen mit allem, was man braucht. Ganz liebe Vermieter!
Bin rundum glücklich und zufrieden, dass ich dieses Häuschen gemietet habe.
Wunderbarer Blick auf die natürlich-griechisch gebliebene Stadt und die schön illuminierte Burg (Akropolis).
Thanks for your nice review. We loved having you and hope to see you again!
klein, aber fein
man ist gleich zu Hause
Hello Ruth, Thanks so much for your kind words! It was lovely having you! Please come again, any time!
Sehr schönes, geschmackvoll und perfekt eingerichtetes Häuschen mit gemütlichemr Garten
Sehr nette Vermieter, die nebenan wohnen. Man lebt praktisch mit Einheimischen zusammen. In der Nähe (3 km entfernt) liegt der schöne Sandstrand von Stegna mit vielen Tavernen und Fischrestsurants. Hier gibt es noch keinen Massentourismus. Die sehenswerten Städte Rhodos und Lindos sind mit dem Auto in einer halben Stunde zu erreichen, der Flughafen ist etwa eine 3/4Stunde vom Haus entfernt.
The island of Rhodes is filled with incredible things to see and do. The location of the house in Archangelos halfway down the East coast is convenient for access by public bus or by rental car to locations all over the island. There are fabulous beaches all around the island and charming villages. Two minutes by car from the house is Stegna beach with wonderful tavernas for traditional Greek food including all kinds of seafood. The town of Archangelos is not heavily touristed so it is ideal for those wanting to get away from the crowds and the noise and the schlock. However it is only 15 minutes by car to popular Lindos if you want the tourist scene.
