Find out more about what a Rhodes holiday can offer
The largest of the Dodecanese Islands and the sunniest of all the Greek Islands, Rhodes is one of the most visited islands in the Aegean Sea because of its cosmopolitan yet Medieval feel. The mix of archeological sights, beautiful beaches, charming villages and Medieval Old Town make this island an attractive choice for those looking to explore, relax and enjoy the reliable warm weather.
Rhodes Old Town is eclectic maze of colourful narrow streets and alleyways, filled with shops, restaurants and bars, as well as plenty of history. Within the old city walls this is much to discover, including many ancient ruins, buildings and mueseums. The Medieval town used to be split into two parts; the northern and southern quarter. The nothern quarter is where you will find the administrative buildings, the hospital, cathedral and the residences of the Knights and the Grand Master. The southern quarter is home to the houses of the laity, the street market, synagogues and churches. Both are built in and resemble traditional Gothic and Renaissance architectural styles, with hints of Byzantine architectural features and Ottoman influences.
Rhodes glistening coastline has a combination of touristy and unspoilt beaches, most of which have been awarded a blue flag for cleanliness. Most spots offer sun loungers and parasols, with many also offering watersports and boat trips. Discover the endless sandy stretches, secret coves and stunning bays before stopping off at a traditional Greek tavern for a taste of the fresh, local cuisine.
The island is also situated close to Turkey's Turquoise Coast and ferries are available from Rhodes Town to Bodrum, Marmaris and Fethiye in Turkey. This is ideal for those who want a little more adventure and to explore two destinations on their holiday. A stay in our Rhodes accommodation would work nicely alongside a stay in our Fethiye, Bodrum or Kalkan accommodation in Turkey.
