Situated 79km from Rhodes Town, the village of Lachania is reputed to be one of the prettiest villages on the whole of Rhodes, second only to Lindos. Nestled in the southern foothills, with a mountain range as a backdrop, it has panoramic views of the surrounding countryside and valleys stretching down to the quiet and unspoilt beaches of the south which are sparsely populated even in the height of summer. There are numerous beaches to choose from, some of which are known only to the locals who may tell you where they are if you befriend them.
This peaceful village retains its traditional charm with just a handful of tavernas, a village store and traditional houses nestled in the narrow lanes, many of which have been lovingly restored and inhabited by a happy mix of foreign buyers and Greeks, all of who have a mutual respect in keeping the traditional feel of the village and for local culture and history, which has been shown in their keen interest in restoring the old village properties to their original glory.
On entering the village, you are “welcomed” by an old windmill, as if to remind you that this was, and still is, a farming community. In fact, the name Lachania comes from the Greek word 'Lachaniká' meaning Vegetables. The 19th century church of St George can be found next to village square towards the bottom of the village, with a large plane trees offering visitors cool shade from the hot summer sun. Near the square is the old Olive press which is now called 'Magana' and used as a cultural centre in the village. This has recently been renovated and is used for holding exhibitions for foreign as well as local artists. In fact, for years, Lachania has been known as the artists' village of Rhodes.
