The Space

Inside:

If one opens the large wooden doors set in the high walls around the whole property, one gets onto the large patio with its swimming pool with sun loungers, garden, and dining area. From here one can enter the house through the living room annex kitchen. All equipment is available and one can live in this house as it was his own house and not a holiday house, with its comfortable couch and well equipped kitchen. The kitchen and living room is an open plan space, and allow people who are relaxing to stay in contact with the ones that are cooking. The couch makes a sleeping space for 2 persons in case of a group of over 4 persons.

There is a shower room further inside the house and a bedroom downstairs with 2 single beds. Going up the stairs you will find a double bedroom with a bathroom en suite. There is a small balcony from which one has spectacular views of the sea, the valley and the village.

Outside:

The house is fully surrounded by its own grounds and around that high walls are placed so that privacy is guaranteed. The pool is with water that contains no chlorine but is cleaned with a different system, so it's not bad for the health. There are 4 comfortable sun loungers next to the pool with a big umbrella for convenience and a shower to clean up before and after swimming. One can use the dining area and have lunch or dinner under the pergola protected from the sun.

The Neighborhood

Lahania lies in the south east coast of Rhodes Island and is far away from and has nothing to do with the hurly burly tourist package destinations. The distance to the city of Rhodes is about 70 kilometers. By car it is about a 1 and half hour drive and by taxi it is about one hour, which would cost about 60 euros. Lahania, like Koskinou, is built on a hill with valleys and a river on the side and mountains at the back. Around Lahania there are beautiful, natural areas, meadows and lots of olive yards. To walk around Lahania is very inspiring and one can feel and breath all the clean air and look at all the beautiful wild vegetation on the sides of the road and in the meadows. Being in Lahania relaxes most people that can appreciate nature, silence and authenticity. The distance to the beach is about 2/3 km. and one can easily walk there since the walk is down hills, but going back is a bit of a heavier walk, which is very doable but only outside the hottest months of July and August.

Rhodes

The village Lahania has about 200 houses but only has about 80-90 permanent inhabitants and in the summer this amount can be double. A lot of houses are owned by Greeks from Rhodes who come to spend the weekend and by foreigners who come to spend the holidays and are already for years in Lahania. The Greeks in Lahania are all busy with farming even while having a restaurant or a hotel or shop. In the village itself (the Meltemi house lies just outside the center of the village), the houses are mainly restored and whitewashed and looking real picturesque. The streets are all curved and all lead to the heart of the village which is the square with a restaurant and the church. The village and its square are so beautiful that was frequently used as a scenery for some films both Greek and American films (one of which was with Jacqueline Biset). The village on the first sight is nothing special, but one has to get away from the main road leading through the upper part of the village, jump out of his car and continue by foot and stroll through the narrow streets with old, original restored houses and really experience the true Greek feeling. This is after all why people do come to Greece.

The village has 2 restaurants with real Greek food and one caf?/bar, so you have all reasons not to cook at home but just let yourself be spoiled everyday by Chrissy?s (along the road up at the village) nice diverse cooking or by sitting in a wonderful romantic scenery and eat at the beautiful square with church at restaurant Platanos, and let the geese and ducks pass by. You sit here under the shade of the three hundred year old plane tree while you listen to the sounds of the water coming from the springs and falling in one of the ?Turkish system of irrigation channels. The children love to play on this square. As soon as one sits down, it is very hard to pull yourself away from the place with its nice and relaxed feeling, and you will soon make it your usual place to sit and watch and drink or eat something. At Chrissy?s you will find very nice home made cooking. Her husband is the local priest, who used to be a barber back in Baltimore, but now enjoys going on the picture with passing tourist. Don?t expect too much if he tells you he will give you a ?speziale papa yiorgos? omelette or coffee. He does it with love though and he is quite funny. At the opposite there is the caf? Horizon, where one can sit, and chat with the local people and drink a nice suma or refreshing beer. The old building that used to house the local olive press is restored and functions as a cultural center for special events or exhibitions by local artists
