Holidays Villas in Lardos Resort

Lardos is a small, friendly, traditional Greek village that is home to just over a thousand people, set in a lush green landscape despite being one of the hottest corners of the island. Unlike the more famous village of Lindos, 6 miles down the road, Lardos has far more locals than visitors, and so still feels very Greek, with square white houses clustered round the watering hole – or in this case a fountain, in the shady village square. Most of our villa are located just oustide Lardos Village itself, in close proximity to Lardos Beach. This laid back seaside resort is made up of a collection of hotels, apartments and villas. The Blue Flag Lardos Beach is considered to be one of the best on the island, with shingled sands that shelve gently into the turquoise waters. There is a good spot for water sports, including paragliding, jet-skis and pedalos, diving and snorkelling. Nearby Glystra Beach is much quieter with a great family atmosphere. This is a place to just lie back and watch the canoes and pedalos go by. There are seashells to collect as you paddle on the shore, and an exceptionally good beach cafe run by an English-speaking family.

Lardos

For a small village, Lardos has a very good selection of tavernas, bars, cafes, and a great variety of little shops including a newsagents and bakery, as well as an ATM. Get up early to buy fresh fish in the village square or visit the fishmongers if you miss the first catch of the day! The hub of the village is the main square, which is lined with trees offering welcome relief from the sun. It's good to sit outside a shady bar in the afternoon with a glass of ouzo or cold beer and watch the locals play a game of Tavli (backgammon).

In the middle of Lardos Village Square there is a fountain that draws its water from natural springs. It was built and decorated by the Italians who occupied and restructured much of Rhodes after the German surrender in 1945. The medieval church of St. George with its tall bell tower is tucked away in a quiet corner, half hidden by cypress trees.

For those seeking a bit of local history, the ruins of The Byzantine Castle of Lardos also lie just outside the village, including remnants of Byzantine mansions. Or, if you drive inland, just south of the village of Laerma you will find a very special monastery deep in the countryside. The tranquil pine wood setting of the Tharri Monastery - dating back to the 12th and 13th Centuries - is a great place for a picnic.

Just 3 miles from Lardos towards Pefkos, is the beautiful sand and pebble Lothiarika Beach. This quiet Blue Flag Beach offers a variety of water sports in pristine crystal clear waters surrounded by unspoilt countryside, and buildings designed to harmonize with the natural environment.

Pefkos itself is a purpose built holiday resort, with sandy beaches, little sheltered coves and beautiful pine forests that scent the air. Pefkos has its own appeal, and prefers low-profile sophistication to brash and flashy! With its small but beautiful award-winning beach and excellent tavernas, Pefkos makes the perfect day out.

Just down the road is the picturesque, historic village of Lindos, with its network of cobbled streets lined with small, whitewashed limestone houses and the dramatic ancient Acropolis, which is one of the biggest tourist attractions of the island. Lindos Beach offers spectacular diving, with drifts, walls and huge caverns where you might see tuna and even seals. The eyes of shrimp looks like hundreds of tiny lights shining in the caverns - an amazing effect!

One of the biggest water parks in Europe is less than an hour’s drive from Lardos, situated at the beach of Faliraki. This vast complex of pools, giant Jacuzzi and slides makes a great day out if you need a change from the beach or the pool. Experienced lifeguards oversee the action as you and your children brave Twisters, Black Holes, Turbo, Free Fall and Kamikaze slides - to name but a few! There are more gentle slides and play areas for very young children such as a pirate ship just waiting to be explored.
