exploring the area
After exploring Lachania and having a meal or coffee at one of the traditional village tavernas, you may wish to venture further. A stroll through the surrounding hilly countryside, a drive to one of the neighbouring villages, sipping some wine on a secluded beach watching the sunset - it is all there for you. There are lots of little churches to be discovered, historic sites to be visited and the island is perfect for a day round trip combined with stops at the ancient city of Kamiros, Ialysos or Lindos.

The area
Lachanias narrow streets are empty of traffic and with its traditional white painted houses the whole village has a relaxed feel ideal for those who want to experience a traditional Greek holiday.


There are numeral beaches around Lahania and the next villages of Genadi, Prasonisi and Katavia. Some of them are sandy beaches, and some of them are with pebbles, but most of them are quite deserted, except the ones closeby Genadi. One can go on a discovery trip to find out more, and also the beaches around Lindos are well worth a visit. The beach of Prasonisi surfers paradise is always more busy with a surfers school and sun beds. Just outside Lachania goint towards Genadi there is a beach place with beach bar and sun beds, called Mojito. We have spent long days in the sun ordering our mojito from the bed, while listening to the nice music in company of the friendly owners Andreas and Dora.

After staying in the Northern part of the island during the first half of our holiday, we decided to stay in the South for the second half. Our stay in Meltemi House was wonderfuland we sincerely wish wed spent more time in this area of the island. Southern Rhodes is far from the commercialized hustle and bustle of the north. Were already dreaming of our next visit to Greece and southern Rhodes gave us what we dreamed of the Greek isles. Gudrun and Yiorgos were extremely nice and helpful throughout our stay. Their wonderful hospitality was extremely appreciated as we were making our first holiday with our infant son. They made sure we had everything we needed for him throughout our stay. My only regret about the villa was that the pool was unheated, making the water much too cold to enjoy given the what I understand was below average temperatures we encountered in early October. This is a fantastic and beautiful villa place to stay in a wonderful Rhodian village. Lahania is a quaint and friendly little village close to the beach and an easy drive to Lindos. We would highly recommend anyone wanting a relaxing Greek holiday to stay here!

We returned to Villa Meltemi this year after a perfect holiday there last year, and we had yet another perfect visit. We booked our car hire through Gudrun the owner of the Villa and it was waiting as instructed at the airport and far cheaper than booking it direct through a car hire company. On arrival at the Villa there was a delicious salad prepared for us in the fridge. The Villa has everything you need for a relaxing holiday, with great thought put into every little detail. Every corner of the Villa and courtyard has an inviting seating area suitable for different times of the day, from breakfast coffee, to nightcaps. I cant recommend this Villa highly enough, the perfect place to spend a relaxing holiday, in a beautiful and very friendly village. Thank you Gudrun for all your help with re-arranging booking dates due to my mistakes with flights, and thankyou for letting us stay in your beautiful Villa. Trish and James.

Beautiful house, well equipped kitchen, charming village and well out of the way of popular tourist destinations make this a real retreat. Definitely to be recommended.

a beautifully designed and furnished villa, the pictures do not do it justice. So many wonderful seating areas for all times of the day, from the front of the villa for morning coffee to the amazing roof terrace for evening drinks. The village is friendly, with lovely local Tavernas to eat and drink at. We had the most relaxing and delightful 2 weeks at the villa and would love to return. There are neighbouring Villas which slightly overlook the property but we were lucky in that it was not peak season and they were unoccupied. A stunning Villa which will not dissapoint.

We loved Villa Meltemi. The property was brilliant nice and private, modern and well equipped with great seating areas and a lovely pool. The village was a quiet, traditional Greek village with a couple of tavernas and a small supermarket - just what you need really. Lots of remote beaches a short drive away and the resorts of Pefki and Lindos close enough for a trip and a nice meal out. I would highly recommend this property - we had a fantastic time. Many thanks Rachel, Chris & Lois

A fantastic villa set in a very tranquil village. Villa Meltemi is furnished to a very high standard and the outside space is superb. The village has a shop two tavernas and is a great place from which to explore Rhodes further. We couldnt have wished for a better place for a quiet getaway and would definitely recommend it and even hope to return one day!

Hallo, es war ein Volltreffer und wir waren begeistert! Hier gibt es einen Vermieter mit Geschmack und der für die Gäste da wenn es ein Anliegen gibt. Immer wieder gerne! Im Jahr 2009 sollte es das Rentalsystems auch in verschieden Sprachen geben und nicht nur in Englisch. Mit freundlichen Grüßen Klaus Rohde
A great place with very hospitable owners ensuring that you have your perfect stay in this wonderful traditional greek house. We love to come again. There are not enough adjectives to describe the wonderful time we had in Villa Meltemi. The house, the pool, the surroundings. Highly recommended.
The villa is beautifull and even better than the pictures show. It is in a very quiet area in the south of the island. It is also not overlooked by any other property.
We had a very good holiday in a lovely house. Enjoyable Tavernas in walking distance... empty (shingle) beaches a short drive away. Just what we wanted.
The house is charming and really well designed for a fully relaxing staying since allows you to choose if to lie nearby the pool, have dinner outside on comfortable chairs just in front of the kitchen or enjoying the falling stars from the terrace. The area is absolutely noise free so y0u will need the alarm clock if you want to wake up early and go to explore the island. A car or a scooter is needed to reach the two most recommended beaches of the south of Rhodes island: Mohito and Prassonissi. A special remark to the owners Yourgus and Gudrun for their availability and their efforts to make you feel good and to make your holiday as better as possible. The swimming  pool is always kept clean by a professional maintains it twice a week. Highly recommended for "good taste" people.
Lahania is a small and cosy village with charming Tavernas and very friendly people - so it is perfect for anybody who seeks holidays away from the main tourist streams. Meltemi Villa itself is located on the upper edge of the village. Anything could be reached walking in five minutes. It is a calm area not noisy anyhow. The house is fully equipped, there is really nothing missing, even a espresso machine is there (very important for some people - like us -)). The typical white/blue color design with nice furnitures and pictures shows the good taste of the owners. There are three outside areas: at the base floor towards south (perfect for breakfast), on the first floor towards south (sea view there - very good for having an evening cup) and the covered area beside the pool (very nice semi-shadow). We enjoyed the stay there (Jul. 2009) very much - in our opinion definitely to be recommended!


About the owner
When i lived in Holland I was a lawyer, having my own advising business. Then i met my Greek husband and moved to Greece, where we live and have children. I used to have a rental company renting only traditional houses of other house owners on Rhodes. I have sold this and now I am renting only my own traditional properties in Rhodes. My husband builds and sells traditional properties, and I rent the ones we have kept. We do our work with lots of love for the buildings we renovate.
