Our love affair with the Greek islands commenced more than 20 years ago. Regular visits to Rhodes led eventually to our decision to make it our second home. The sheer variety that the island offers ranging from the medieval Rhodes Town to the deserted beaches in the south combined with warm deep blue warm waters of the Aegean. Our perfect island destination.
Over 300 days of sunshine per year and the warm blue Aegean sea make Rhodes a wonderful place to spend time relaxing and exploring. Whether it be a week by the pool or longer exploring the towns, villages, mountains and beaches of this fabulous Island. After 20 years of regular visits we are still discovering new places and things to do. Our personal favourites remain wandering in Lindos, exploring the medieval walls and streets of Rhodes Town and swimming at Haraki beach. We also find no stay complete without a visit to breathtaking views of Monolithos
The White Houses are located on the edge of a friendly village which is opened all year round, with all the services one could wish for. With views over the olive groves and mountains. When you rent our house from us we will send you our regularly updated listings of beaches, restaurants and other attractions. We write this ourselves and is based purely on our own experiences. Personal favourites also include buying our fish from the man that caught it, eating grilled chicken from Savvas Grill or an amazing pasta dinner at Roulas. You will not go hungry!

relief when 4 of us walked in what a lovely home we were late getting in 2 am and lovely welcome pack waiting and lovely clean villa that impressed already trying to book for next year
We stayed for a week in this lovely property . It is furnished to a high standard throughout and well equipped , especially in the kitchen . Nice little touches like beach towels, hairdryer and a welcome pack with basic essentials very welcome . Also very safety conscious with fire extinguishers and very clean and smart. Kate, the owner, was helpful via email and the booking process and obtaining keys was easy. The outside areas and pool are perfect for outdoor living and relaxing . The villa is located in Lardos , a quiet traditional Greek village with several good quality restaurants, bars and shops including 2 supermarkets in easy walking distance . Car hire or taxi s can easily get you to other nearby places including Lindos , Pefkos, crazy golf and several beaches --Lardos and Haraki beach and castle are worth visiting. The scenery is stunning .
We loved the quietness of the traditional village and friendly people but found it easy to get out and about further afield. The weather was fantastic and we had a wonderful week. We wanted a high standard of facilities and cleanliness and the villa ticked our boxes well. Thankyou .
