The Aegean Islands region
Rhodes lies approx 11 miles (18 km) to the west of the Turkish shores, situated between the Greek mainland & the island of Cyprus.
The island of Rhodes is shaped like a spearhead, 79.7 km long and 38 km wide with a total area of approximately 1,398 km² (540 square miles) and a coastline of approximately 220 km. Plenty to explore if you wish....? The city of Rhodes is located at the far northern end of the island, including the site of the ancient and modern commercial harbor.
The interior of the country is mountainous, sparsely inhabited,with the occasional,unspoilt villages and covered with forests of Pine and Cypress. In terms of flora and fauna, Rhodes is closer to Asia Minor than to the rest of Greece. The Aegean Sea & the Mediterranean Sea provide breathtaking coastline.
Known as "THE SUNSHINE ISLAND",Rhodes boasts & basks in more than 300 days of sunshine every year.
Villa Poppy is superbly positioned very close to Lindos,one of the key attractions of Rhodes. World famous and packed with history,tradition,charm,fine dining and an array of activities that cater for all tastes. As well as the quiet beach area & cove of Vliha Bay you have nearby Plakia beach at Pefkos. We also recommend a 15 minute drive to Glistra beach-another "secret" gem.
Climb towards Mount Profitis Ilias and the forest filled route will take you to sites many a tourist never venture. One such site is a 14th Century Byzantine Chapel,named Nikolaos Foundoukli (Saint Nicholas of the Hazelnuts)and is worth a visit for the magnificent and ancient wall paintings inside.
* Other highlights we can suggest are Monolithos Castle perched on a rock 787 feet high and dating from before 1480,you will enjoy the most amazing views.
*The village of Siana stands on the south side of the 823-m high Mount Akramytis and is famous for exquisite honey & the impressive church of Agios.
*Hunt down the quaint water side taverna when you drive down the glorious Glyfada Bay. Our personal favourite place on Rhodes!
*You could choose the odd Winery,Olive Grove,a sandy or a pebble beach,breathtaking archaeological sites,a quiet life or a vibrant night life-Rhodes is the perfect place to find absoloute balance.
