Nostos Homes Archangelos Rhodes - Vacation Home Rental · Folklore Museum - Arch type home · Active Life

The homes' doors open and the beauty floods your heart and overflows with the surprise of the “piateloticho” (the plate wall)! They are the hand painted plates, which accompanied the bride to her new home, with the big mirror in the middle and the family pictures. But why so many plates? With beauty there is no “why” – it just saves us!...

In the interior of the homes, the “kamara”, (the arch), which parts the home in two, dominates harmoniously without distracting from its unity. Famed Archangelic craftsmen built it with big hand cut stones and at its center, they wedged the “arch's key” (klidi tis kamaras). The whole house rests on the “arch key”, symmetrically and is uniquely balanced!...

The opening of these homes to the people aims to render the unique cultural heritage of Archagelos Rhodes. But they will do it in a different way – by living for a week in a “live – folklore museum” and by participating in related activities.

During their stay, visitors are invited to participate in this project specially designed to introduce them further to tradition and local customs.

It includes the following activities:

1. A tour to familiarize the guests with the “arch” type homes.

2. Lighting of the wood oven, baking archangelic bread, local foods and preparing the tenants daily meals for both hommes.

3. Familiarization with Rhodes' aromatic plants and herbs from the home's garden and creating cosmetics and ointments.

*The project takes place from 1/7 until 30/8

Certainly guests can enjoy the great beaches: Tsampika, St. Agatha and Stegna, all very close to the Archangelos (1 - 3km).

b) In the Stegna beach (half an hour walking to the tiny beach of Archangelos with graphic port).

c) In the "Epta Piges" (seven springs - one hour and half walking or on horseback).

d) In the Aithona valley, which is full of water, orange, lemon and mandarine trees (one hour walking from the south exit of the village).

You can visit:

*The church of Archangel Micheal Taxiarxis which dates back to 1845 and is celebrated on 8th November. The features that stand out are the “νευρωτά σταυροθόλια”, the cobble paved yard and the peculiar belfry, whice stands out from a far.

*The traditional historical centre of the village is found surrounding the church – the narrow whitewashed alleys, the small, traditional, archangelic homes with their ornate gates and their wood burning ovens in the yards. The aroma of freshly baked bread every Saturday and the hospitable Archangelic people, who keep the local voice alive and the customs of the village, all create a very warm atmosphere.

*The non-profit organisation “Faethon”, an Equestrian Club, which has gathered all the surviving small horses (they are living only at Rhodes) and has put forth a rescue effort for them.


Rhodes is a blessed place, showered by sunlight and surrounded by the sea's deep blue in shades which astound you. In Greek mythology it is known as the Sun God's favourite island. He won it after Zeus's and other Olympian gods' victory over the Giants and Titans. Rhodi, the daughter of Oceanos/ Oceanus and wife of the Sun God, was worshipped on the island with the name Alia and Lefkothea.

With the island's natural beauty its ancient history is also documented from the Neolithic Era with the Kares, the Phoenicians and the Minoans from Crete as its first inhabitants.

Later the Mycenaean Achaean and the Dorians. In ancient times they were divided into three well known city states: Lindos, Camiros and Ialisos. In 408 B.C. the city of Rhodes was founded. Simultaneously, significant names arose like Kleovoulos, one of the seven wisest men of ancient times and Diagoras, an Olympic champion of several consecutive Olympic Games.

In the Macedonian and Greek times, and later under the influence of Prolemeon Egypt, Rhodes continued to flourish. The Colossus of Rhodes, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, was erected in honor of the victory against the Macedonian general Demetrios of the siege.

In the Byzantine years it was one of the most commonly raided islands. The Persians, the Saracens and the Crusaders caused great damage to the islands. From 1309 to 1522 Rhodes was under the occupation of the knights of the Order of St. John, and it became an important economic and cultural center for the Easter Mediterranean. At that time the Medieval City of Rhodes was built. In 1522 Rhodes submitted to the Turks and in 1912 to the Italians. In March of 1948 Rhodes and all the Dodecanese (a 12 island complex) became one with Greece.

"As if we were at home :)"

We were more than welcomed by the owner family.
Spend very good time in the unique old stone house (specially sleeping/like a baby)
It was in a very good location to reach everywhere in the island easily
Workshops were amazing. We baked our own bread, cookies and food in the stone oven, besides learnt how to make cosmetics by the natural stuff from the garden.
Suggest to anyone who wants to feel at home surrounded by good neighbors while having the advantage of wonderful beaches of Rhodes.
