A seafront home with eight beds and genuine wow factor.
When visiting Rhodes' east shore, this is a fantastic place to stay.
Afandou, which is located halfway between Kolympia and Faliraki, is home to this Villa, which boasts a stunning setting replete with a private pool, patio, and planted grounds.
The villa's outdoor areas are enticing and energising, with the cool sea wind and nearly continual sunshine sure to make them impossible to resist.
Sun loungers and armchairs are arranged along the poolside, and there is a covered area with a dining table, seats, and BBQ.
The 9m x 4m pool is enjoyable at all times and is especially lovely at night when it is lit up.
From the terrace, patio doors lead inside to the living area, which has a flat-screen TV with satellite channels and a surround-sound audio system.
This room is bright and roomy, and there are comfortable sofas and a dining table with a view of the ocean.
The kitchen is also a part of this open-concept area and is well-equipped for cooking and entertaining.
Three of the villa's four bedrooms have a sizable double bed.
Fourth bedroom features twin beds. Smart en-suite bathrooms are located in each of the bedrooms.
The Villa offers additional benefits like free Wi-Fi and air conditioning.
The proprietors will greet you and take every possible measure to ensure that your stay is great.
The golf course and beach at Afandou, which also has a variety of eateries and amenities, are both designated as Blue Flag beaches.
Just down the coast are two of the island's most popular beaches: Anthony Quinn Bay to the north and Tsambika to the south.
Here, the rocky cliffs and wide expanses of golden sand draw both sunbathers and water sports enthusiasts. Afandou is conveniently located on the seaside and is just over 20 minutes' drive from the island's capital and the airport.
When staying at this opulent Villa, make sure to see the Lindos Acropolis and the serene Valley of the Butterflies as well.
Situated between Lindos and Rhodes town and just a 5 minute drive from the blue flag awarded beach of Afantou. The Anthony Quinn bay is just 2 miles away. Hugely popular as a tourist destination, Rhodes is an island with more than its fair share of natural beauty and landmark sights.
The town of Rhodes, a 10 mile drive, is as good a place to start as any and lies on the northern tip of the island. A walk along the medieval walls of the Old Town will offer you some beautiful views, accessible from the must-see Palace of the Grand Masters. Part of a World Heritage Site, this is also the location of a fine museum which offers the chance to familiarise yourself with Rhodian history, extending as far back as the 3rd century BC.
Another museum worth checking out is the Museum of Modern Greek Art, with an eclectic collection only rivalled by Athens. The New Town area is visually appealing itself, with an Art Deco influence present in much of its architecture. Mandráki harbour is the home of Evangelismós Cathedral, where you can find some impressive frescoes.
The Lindos Acropolis is as spectacular as the coastal views it enjoys, and worth seeing. Down the coast, you also have resorts such as Ammoudes, Kolympia and, perhaps best-known, Faliraki. While its reputation may precede it, this is not the hedonism capital it once was. A children’s water-park and the beautiful Anthony Quinn Bay may tempt you there during the day, and an aquarium and scuba-diving school also embrace the aquatic theme.
At the very southern tip of the island, Prasonisi’s location – dividing the Aegean and the Mediterranean – is considered prime wind-surfing territory. But if that sounds a little too exhilarating, Rhodes’ more sedate attractions like the Valley of the Butterflies, numerous wineries and the seven springs of the wonderfully scenic Epta Piges nature reserve, will provide just as pleasant a day out.
