Further Details:

Lindos was one of the three ancient cities of the Greek island of Rhodes, built well before the foundation of the capital, Rhodes town. A site of exceptional beauty, it is an important historic settlement, and a popular tourist destination. It is ideal for a short vacation, as it offers various possibilities as well as the traditional element. The beach of Lindos and the small harbour of St. Paul offer excellent bathing and the colourful shops, restaurants, cafes and bars ensure a pleasant stay. The location of Lindos in the centre of the island facilitates access to many sights for daily excursions.

The imposing landscape is dominated by the ancient acropolis, one of the most important in Greece, with a temple of the goddess Athena, and Byzantine and Hospitaller monuments and fortifications. A distinctive architecture and rich decoration make the fortified mansions of 17th and 18th century sea-captains a notable feature of the settlement.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We wind down a narrow stone paved street, then right, then left. An arched doorway framed by flowering bougainvillea opens to a small yard cobbled with black and white patterned stones. Left, steps lead onto the roof, right through another arched double door into this wonderful rebuilt traditional Lindian house. The first thing to strike us was the smell of cedar, from the wood in the ceiling and massive roof truss, the second was the height of the celing. The elevated bed is larger than it looks in the photos, a very generous double. It took a little getting used to, especialy the wonder of the doors being opened next morning and the light flooding in.

There is a feeling of quiet tranquility in the house and yard, which is remarkable so close to the centre of a busy tourist spot, and it is broken by several things. One is the Donkey Run, though it is mostly an amble as the Lindian Taxis go past to give rides to tourists. This mostly starts before 8am, not loud enough to wake us. Shouldn't still be in bed, anyway. The real tourist trail starts at 10 with the coaches arriving at the other side of this small town, and the best time is early. I recommend wandering down to Yannis Bar to watch the people pass by, have a coffee, juice or breakfast, log on to wifi and watch the town wind up. To get that far you will have passed the best minimart, and the pharmacy. Or sit in the yard and look up by the limewashed steps past the flowers to that deep blue sky. The cooking equipment and facilities are better then normal, with all the extras of home. Shower is fine, basin is as many of the fittings selected for style and utility, and I want one like it. Lots of sockets, even outside. The nearest beach is St.Pauls, which is small, terraced and lovely. Air con works well and softly. Lots of great restaurants nearby, our favourite Olympia, Lindian House during the day. All do great food and service. Greek hospitality is mythic. We recommend rising early, walking through the quiet town and up to the Acropolis before anyone else, then down into the town for breakfast, before a stroll to the beach. Lindos and Lindiako Spiti are a matchless experience.

Casa molto bella, soggiorno sfortunato (?)

  • 1 of 5

La casa è sicuramente molto carina, un piccolo gioiello in pieno centro dell'altrettanto bel paese di Lindos. Desidero innanzitutto premettere che la proprietaria si è sempre dimostrata molto gentile e disponibile a risolvere tutti i problemi, che però sono stati tali da rendere molto difficile la vacanza. Appena arrivati da Rodi (intorno alle ore 21, così come previsto e comunicato alla proprietaria) troviamo la casa con il condizionatore spento e con all'interno circa 40°! Il condizionatore non si accende e tutte le finestre della casa sono bloccate di proposito, non si possono aprire. Con non poche difficoltà, dovute al fatto che dentro la casa e nel cortile di proprietà non esiste connessione telefonica (i muri sono antichi e molto spessi), contatto la proprietà che ci fa sapere che il condizionatore ha dei problemi, ma che sono in procinto di essere risolti. Nel frattempo trascorriamo una notte svegli, stante la impossibilità di avere anche solo un filo d'aria in casa! La mattina dopo magicamente il condizionatore riparte, la proprietaria ci comunica che il giorno dopo la nostra partenza (!) verrà sostituito in quanto difettoso. Molto bene, solo che dopo qualche ora la macchina si ferma nuovamente (per tutta la settimana la temperatura è rimasta intorno ai 40° sia di giorno che di notte) ed il giorno dopo troviamo al nostro rientro in casa la madre della proprietaria con un nuovo condizionatore portatile ancora nella scatola. Come ovvio questa nuova macchina funziona solo con presa d'aria esterna, ma con le finestre piombate ciò non è possibile e la sciare aperta la porta d'ingresso durante la notte non mi sembra fattibile vista la nutrita popolazione di felini (che amiamo) e di roditori (che amiamo di meno); in ogni caso un tecnico contattato dalla signora fa sapere di non potere venire. Il penultimo giorno della nostra permanenza viene finalmente installato un nuovo condizionatore, mentre noi siamo fuori casa. al nostro rientro lo troviamo spento e sempre con temperature torride, cerco di attivarlo ma non parte! Scrivo molto arrabbiato alla proprietà (che risponde dopo molto tempo, per via delle difficoltà di ricezione, credo!) ma nel frattempo scopro che è stato montato un termostato che prima non c'era a muro...lo attivo ed il condizionatore parte!! Sarebbe bastato lasciare un pezzo di carta con relativa istruzione oppure meglio ancora lasciare acceso il condizionatore! Mai potuto mangiare in casa per la presenza di migliaia di formiche

Kleinod in der Altstadt von Lindos

  • 5 of 5

Dieses traumhaft gelegene kleine Häuschen am Rand der Altstadt (2min zum Parkplatz) von Lindos hat uns sofort bezaubert, als wir das alte Tor aufschlossen und im Mini-Innenhof mit Sitzbank und -treppen standen! Innen ist es traditionell eingerichtet, genau wie auf den Bildern, alles etwas dunkel und nicht mehr ganz neu (zB das Bad), aber etwas Besonderes und authentisch wirkendes. Im Mai blüht die Bougainvilla üppigst, morgens früstückten wir stets draußen, wenn es heißer wird, hat der kleine Hof immer schattige Ecken, abends ist es ein Traum dort zu sitzen. Die Stufen im Hof führen aufs Dach, auf ihnen kann man sitzen und die nächtlich beleuchtete Akropolis anschauen: 100% Urlaubsfeeling! Zauberhaft auch die morgens vorbei trottenden Esel, deren Hufe zu hören sind, ansonsten das ein oder andere Moped, Passanten, aber da es am Rand der Stadt liegt, kein Lärm von Bars und Co. Wir hatten eine wunderschöne Woche!
