Superb Stonebuilt Country Cottage In Big Olive Yard

Country house with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and swimming pool in Koskinou, Greece

From £217 per week

Picturesque and charming stone built country house set in a big olive yard. Peaceful location, with fantastic, generous garden.

Overview

Wonderfully designed cosy stonebuilt house set in a big olive yard. In the middle of Rhodes, on a quiet location, about 11 km from Rhodes town. The house has a lovely garden, a vegetable garden. One can walk around for hours in the surroundings, relax on the veranda, or make a fantastic barbecue outside. If you are looking for a real relaxing holiday away from all the tourist hassle, then this is the right place for you.

"Tsaire"
Tsaire is more of an area just outside of Koskinou village. It belongs to the same municipality as Koskinou does. There are some houses clustered here and then, but mainly people are just on their own and happy by themselves. There is not a village or community idea. All the pieces of land here were big plots of land, usually owned by the Koskinou villagers to put their olive trees on, and to go for the weekend to relax in a small self made shed or house. One can take nice walks and go to the backlands of the Olive Yard House. There is a horse riding club close by and biking and hiking is a very wanted activitiy in this neighbourhood. Just around the corner of the house is a Trofo Casa supermarket, but a bit further on the big road Rhodou-Lindou (road going from Rhodes to Lindos) there are bigger supermarkets as the Lidl.carrefour. and the AB.



Close by the Olive Yard house is a bee museum (Museum of Apiculture and of Natural History of the Bee) and it is very interesting how the whole process of honey making is created.

We were a little surprised at the location to start with as the area was more built up than we expected. Although this is good for exploring near by places such as Rhodes Old Town. However, once you are inside the grounds of the property, you soon forget about the surrounding area. The gardens, olive groves, vegetable garden and outside facilities are wonderful. The house itself is absolutely beautiful. We are a family of 3 and we spent a very relaxing week here for our honeymoon. Our 18 month old daughter loved it. The pool and the shaded area around the pool are perfect for keeping cool on a hot sunny day. Nikos, the owner was very friendly and helpful and he supplied a delicious hamper and platter of food on our arrival, along with fresh fruit, vegetables and eggs during our stay. We were very comfy and quite happy to not leave the house some days. We will hopefully be back one day.

Great house, nice owner, beautiful place!

Nikos house is a little paradise - really like in the pictures on the web site- located in a completely unexpected area ( which is definately also to be explored) . The house is full of charm, well equipped and the garden fantastic. Picking up organic salad and peppers fresh from the garden was a so handy and eating them a real pleasure!

As we are over 40 we must admit our bed/ mattress could have been a bit better as we had a bit of sore back each morning... For our boys ( of course we not there at the very hot season) a little football ground would have been more than welcome ( maybe nikos can arrange one ?) but they did enjoy the swimming pool and the picking up of the eggs and feeding the hens a lot.

We had a real nice stay and are ready for the Belgian winter now !

Well, words cant describe the Olive house. Ill try :-)
Wonderful location, close to the airport, Rhodes town and Faliraki. Nikos, the owner, is very helpful and friendly. Upon arrival beers and soft drinks in the fridge, a salad made by the mother of Nikos, a very warm welcome, just like youre visiting friends or family. Everything you need in the house is there, great.
Extra is the fact that in the garden you can pick all kinds of herbs to make a cocktail, give some extra flavour to your (bbq) meal or whatever. The owner takes great care of the property, cleans the pool regularly, there is a sound and lightning system on the terrace, its really wonderful and so relaxed.
We stayed there with 4 persons and they were all astonished about everything regarding the house. We have been in paradise for two weeks.

A big thanks to Nikos, his mother, his son and Gudrun for a perfect vacation.

Private Owner From Rhodes, Greece Member since Mar 2012

My name is Nikos Stavridis and i am the owner of Olive yard and Myrtia house. I would like to introduce myself to the future visitors of my properties so they can create a more complete image of my way of thinking that has a strong reflection to the kind of vacations that i want to provide to my customers. To begin with, if i could describe myself i would say that i have a restless spirit with an artistic side but also with a strong environmental character. Before my occupation with the vacation industry, I have been an owner of a jewellery house for many years and i used to create most of our jewelleries. One of my hobbies is the cultivation of fruits and vegetables and also my farm.
