Charming house at foot of the acropolis in Archangelos, Rhodes

Bedrooms 1
Property type house


About the property

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.

Charming house at foot of the acropolis in Archangelos, Rhodes
average rating of 4.8 based on 5 reviews

Sehr geschmackvolle, kleine Unterkunft

  • 5 of 5

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.

Sehr stimmungsvolles kleines Steinhäuschen mit allem, was man braucht. Ganz liebe Vermieter!

  • 5 of 5

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).

Sehr schönes, geschmackvoll und perfekt eingerichtetes Häuschen mit gemütlichemr Garten

  • 4 of 5

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.

Absolutely fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We really spent a great time in this lovely place.

This fully equipped house is really cosy and full of charm. The terrace is quite large, fully flowered and sunny. Definitely a romantic place ! Stella and her husband are really friendly, helpful and full of hospitality. I highly recommend this location.

Nearest Beach
2 Miles
Stegna beach, Tsampika beach
Car: recommended

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.
