The village is well served by bus and taxi to Rhodes Town and other resorts including the nearby resort of Lindos and St Paul's Bay (8km).
We had a really wonderful holiday here and totally recommend it.
The villa is really comfortable, clean, homely and well equipped. We loved having the pool, and it was great to be able to walk into the village. Lardos is a really sweet and attractive Greek village, and the restaurants cater very well for tourists. Our favourite was Valentinas. scrummy food and really nice people.
There are lots of places to visit close by and beautiful beaches too..we never went to the same one twice!
We did a lot of exploring of the island and really enjoyed it, and everyday we came back and always felt that Lardos was the best place to have picked to stay. A lot of the holiday locations are nicely done but quite purpose built, but Lardos feels like a good blend of definitely being Greek but catering for tourists too.
Apart from the obvious things to do... Lindos, Rhodes town etc...
Our top tips to include in your holiday here would be:
Mont Thari Monastery (Monastery of Archangel Michael) ... up in the hills and beautiful. (2o mins away)
The Throne of Helios ... 9D interactive cinema about the history of Rhodes...(next to Starbucks in Rhodes Town)... it was brilliant... think I liked it more than the kids!
The windmill bar and restaurant at Kiotari... go down to the beach road and turn right and keep going... its gorgeous and they rent beautiful canopies to lie under on the beach!
Asklepios.... lovely little village with a beautiful church but also a ruined castle on top of the hill with fantastic views!
Thank you very much Ray and Jane.... we really loved it!

The villa is perfect, well equipped and clean. It's an easy flat walk to Lardos centre with excellent restaurants, and a central base for everything in the area. Everything is easily accessible by car or bus. I'd definitely recommend to anyone looking to stay within easy reach of Lindos or Pefkos, but not wanting the 'all inclusive' experience. Ray is helpful and responds to queries promptly.
Lovely, well equipped house for our family to spend our holiday. Really enjoyed time round the pool and in an ideal location for the very short walk to the village and its restaurants. With the added bonus of having wifi to keep our teenager happy too!!
Family of 4 - All adults. We had a wonderfully peaceful & relaxing holiday in Lardos
The Villa is is well equiped, well kept and very clean. (the mosquito screens on the bedroom windows meant we left after 2 weeks with NO bites - Bliss) The property is maintained by Callum & Gayle who are friendly and at hand should you need any help during your stay.The Villa is situated in a quiet area and is only a short walk to the square where you will find supermarkets, bakers, butchers, pharmacy, gift shops and of course tavernas. Our favourite being Valentina's. If you want a larger choice of amenities then Lindos is only a short taxi journey away (€12) and well worth a visit.The owner Ray was very helpful, friendly and informative during the booking process & I would definitely recommend this Villa and would return without hesitation as there is so much to see and do on Rhodes.
We are regular visitors to Lardos and have been for the last 12 years. The villa at the white houses did not disappoint, fantastically well presented on the website and what you see is exactly that.
The whole experience of getting in touch with Ray who owns the villa to booking it was very easy, he was most accommodating, if you have any general queries he was always available to answer. We travelled with my father who is disabled after a stroke, everything is downstairs so this was fantastic for him, the only problem he had was the stairs down to the garden were slippy when wet and this was more a confidence issues but this did not cause a problem as there was plenty of room straight outside the villa on the same level.
The villa has a downstairs bedroom with a small double bed and a shower room next door, the kitchen and living room has ample space and you walk straight out to the outside patio area overlooking the pool. Upstairs the 2 bedrooms, one double and another with 2 single beds both have double doors which lead onto an upstairs balcony with a table and chairs and beautiful view overlooking the pool. The doors are safe if staying with young children as these lock at the top so they cannot be undone by little hands! Mosquito blinds too.
I can't really say more than we were thoroughly satisfied with the villa, it was well maintained by Calum, any problems and if there is anything which needs sorting out such as a lightbulb this is attended to straight away.
Restaurants in Lardos - Roulas (my friends family) is fantastic and Maritsa and Mike will not give you a warmer welcome. You will not be disappointed in any of the restaurants.
Bars - Yammas - Loucas and Maritsa fantastic hosts and will always look after you and good area to watch the world go by!
Fantastic beaches just a short drive away Pefkos, Plakia, Glystra - Lardos is shingle and too far to walk to from the villa so a car is a good way to get around the island. Plenty to see and do in Rhodes and the villa is the perfect base with just a 5 minute leisurely stroll to the main square. You will not be disappointed!
we will certainly be returning soon!
What a lovely, well kept and well equipped villa. The pool was spotlessly clean as was the entire villa thanks to Calum and Gale who look after it. It is a very short walk to the square in Lardos and the exceptionally good tavernas; Roules and Valentinas. The experience of booking was very easy and pleasant, the owner Ray was very helpful in providing information.
The villa is within walking or cycling distance (2 - 5km) to the blue flag beaches of Glystra and Pefki and within 8km of the world famous resort of Lindos and St Pauls Bay (2 Euros on the bus) 12 euros by taxi. These are sandy beaches with the most popular at Lindos. Park all day for 3 euros.
The others are free parking and at most other resorts.
Rhodes Airport is approximately 45mins away by taxi to the villa, currently fixed at 75 euros or we can pre book a hire car for collection at the airport or have it delivered to the villa. Recommended if touring, The sophisticated Rhodes town with it's designer shops and restaurants and its magnificent walled old town, (a world heritage site) is a big tourist attraction and is well worth a visit. This is a short distance away by car from the airport and an hour's drive from the villa.
The villa is situated within Lardos village. The world famous picture postcard resort of Lindos and nearby St Pauls Bay is just is just 8km and 10 minutes by car and is a popular place to get married. Lindos has its own historic 4BC Acropolis, which towers high above the town, with its sandy beaches and clear blue waters. There is also an abundance of shops, bars, tavernas, restaurants and is perfect for families, couples and friends of all ages. There are overworked donkeys, (if you prefer not to walk up to the acropolis)
Lardos village is open all year round, unlike some resorts which close down at the end of the season, to serve the general population and has an abundance of shops, including small supermarkets, butchers, fishmongers and bakers, a pharmacy, recommended restaurants, and tavernas and is a good starting point if you want to explore further afield, maybe to see places of interest or the villages in the mountains on the island, or to visit the other resorts on Rhodes, including Lindos and Pefkos or the water park near Falaraki, which is 30km away approx. The 18 hole par 72 golf course at Afandou, is also an approx half hours drive away. Nearby, on the Lardos village outskirts, there is a small crazy golf course and a full size Go Kart track, which is great fun.
