Located close to Afandou village, Villa Chorio is a poolside family home, ideal for up to eight guests. Surrounded by beautiful gardens, and a short drive from Afandou’s golf course. Equidistant between Rhodes’s Medieval old town and the cobbled streets of Lindos it is well-placed for excursions to discover the best of the island of Rhodes.
A terrace with a dining area, a pavilion with barbecue, and plenty of sun loungers and parasols provides the perfect introduction to the outdoor lifestyle. Some fine beaches are found along the coast, with crystal waters and secluded areas perfect for sunbathing. With soft, golden sands, nearby Tsampika, is considered one of the best on the island, and Afandou’s own beach offers bars and restaurants where you can enjoy a cold drink in the sun; or sample the delicious Rhodian seafood.
The house itself offers a gym with sauna and a hot tub, and the spacious private pool is ideal for a morning swim. One of the bathrooms feature a bath with hydro-massage facilities – it’s virtually impossible not to feel relaxed at Villa Chorio. The villa is set over two floors, with four comfortable bedrooms with balconies offering panoramic views. In addition to the main bathroom, there is a further two shower rooms with luxurious walk-in showers. The living areas are large and well-equipped, with satellite channels on the flat screen TV, an indoor dining space, and a kitchen with oven, microwave, fridge, dishwasher and much more.
There is much within a short drive to suit all tastes, from the natural beauty of the Epta Piges to the nightlife of Faliraki. The former is well worth seeing, a nature reserve full of green and wooded areas, and seven springs which resulted in a wonderful lake offering the only fresh-water swimming on the island. Children will love the exciting water park at Faliraki, with its huge slides and waves, and the historic sites of Rhodes are easy to reach too. At Villa Chorio you will be just 25 minutes’ drive from Rhodes the capital, so don’t miss a trip to its historic Old Town, or simply its own sandy beach
It's a short drive to the town of Rhodes which is as good a place to visit and lies on the northern tip of the island. A walk along the medieval walls of the Old Town & castle will offer you some beautiful views. 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.
Along 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.
Rhodes is an island with more than its fair share of natural beauty and landmark sights. To the south Lindos is a UNESCO site, with donkeys for transport and and cobble streets below the ancient acropolis.
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.
