The Dodecanese are a group of 12 larger plus 150 smaller Greek islands in the Aegean Sea, of which 26 are inhabited. They have a rich history, and many of even the smallest inhabited islands boast dozens of Byzantine churches and medieval castles. Historically, Rhodes was famous worldwide for the Colossus of Rhodes, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The medieval Old Town of the City of Rhodes has been declared a World Heritage Site.
With over 300 days of sunshine per year, Rhodes has the best sunshine record of all the Mediteranean islands. This, together with its overwhelming natural beauty and significant historical interest, makes the island so special and the reason why people visit year after year.
Rhodes is a place where you very much please yourself and shape your holiday as you want to. You could spend a quiet week or two just in Gennadi relaxing at the villa and enjoying the local beach, but it would be a shame to miss the Greek hospitality in the restaurants and bars where it is their pleasure to serve you and to ensure you enjoy their food, drink and hospitality as well as the wonderful history and scenery this beautiful island has to offer.
The famous Acropolis at Lindos is within a 25 minute drive North from Gennadi and Rhodes Old Town, New Town and Port can be reached in about an hour.
Prassonissi beach is about a 25 minute drive south of Gennadi and is worth a visit. This is where the Mediterranean and the Aegean oceans meet and when the tides are low you can walk across to the tiny island which is the most southerly tip of Rhodes. Prassonissi is a paradise for water sports and very popular with kite and wind surfers.
A trip to the west coast of the island will take you through beautiful pine forests where you can visit many sites including the ancient castle at Monolithos and the ancient city at Kameiros. The rugged coastal scenery is beautiful and the roads will take you through some traditional Greek villages selling produce such as honey, olive oil and tapestries.
For those looking for a more active holiday there is the WaterPark at Falaraki, an 18 hole golf course at Afandou and Go Karts at nearby Lardos. Watersports are available at several beaches and diving trips from Rhodes town.
Other places worth visiting are the beautiful Valley of The Butterflies (Petaloudes), Epta Piges (Seven Springs), Filerimos and the Marine Aquarium and Rodini Park in Rhodes Town.
