Holidays in Kiotari

Horizon Line Villas are four luxury villas with private pool situated only 40 meters from the beach of Kiotari, an ideal place for relaxing holidays in Rhodes. It is located 60 km south of Rhodes Town and just a few minutes’ drive from Lindos. Kiotari has a Blue Flag beach of 10 kilometers long and has become very popular due to its clear blue waters and its variations between sand and multi-colored pebbles.

On the beachside of Kiotari, apart from water-sport facilities ideal for the sea lovers, someone can find several bars and taverns to enjoy the local cuisine. Something that sets this place apart is the large 100m2 rock lying around 100 meters from the shore, ‘the nisi’, as it is known to the locals which means the island, and apart from its aesthetic charms, presents a swimming challenge to all those bathers on the beach.

Rhodes Town – History and charm

The Medieval City of Rhodes, a world’s cultural heritage, as defined by UNESCO in 1988, with its Knights’ castle, lies 60 kilometers away, is a place where past meets present. It’s one of the places you wouldn’t like to miss on your holidays in Rhodes. The history of the Old City – as called by locals – merges harmoniously with the cosmopolitan air of the New City. Enjoy walking through the impressive walls and the numerous monumental buildings, you can visit Rhodes museum which holds the old Knights’ Hospitaller of Rhodes. A few meters away there is the Grand Magister’s palace, an imposing castle in superb condition, which will take the visitor back in time. Afterwards you can take a stroll around the Old Town’s more commercial area, picking up the odd gift on your way. There you can also have a break where you can sit at a tavern or a café and try the delicious cuisine or some of the local wine.

Before leaving Rhodes town, don’t forget to pay a visit to the Ancient Stadium, the Acropolis of Rhodes, with its temple of Apollo nearby. Also, you can’t miss the spectacular sunset as it makes its slow plunge into shimmering sea, and beyond you’ll make out the nearby island of Symi, as well as the Turkish coastline.

Lindos – Magnificent acropolis with breathtaking views

Lindos is a picturesque, ancient village surrounded by the sea with its acropolis towering above. Today it’s a famous tourist attraction on the island and lies 15 kilometers to the east.

Lindos village is also famous for its variety of restaurants that combine tradition with modern gastronomy as well as for its night life with a lot of bars that exceed your expectations playing Mainstream or Greek music.

Spring is the time when the valley is showing itself off in all its finery! But it is still very beautiful to be visited in summer during your holidays in Rhodes.

The Efta Piges (Seven Springs) flow out of the earth, creating a small brook with ice-cold water leading to a tunnel in the mountain.
