Rhodes has been a popular holiday destination for centuries. Its history is weaved together by Greek mythology and culture, which still heavily influences it today.
Rhodes is great for history lovers, and those who love an idyllic beach holiday. If either of those is you, book a holiday rental in Rhodes today!
Rhodes is the largest of the Dodecanese Islands and has the nickname The Island of the Knights. This is because the knights of Saint John of Jerusalem conquered this land centuries ago, but that's only part of the area's history.
This island is famous worldwide for its ancient architecture and iconic history, so go to as many museums and historical hotspots as you can during your stay. It’ll be well worth it!
What to Do
The Archaeological Museum of Rhodes is also worth visiting. Take a guided tour so you can really understand the history of this area – it spans back to the Stone Age. Keep an eye out for the wall mounted mosaics – they're very impressive!
After a long day soaking up culture, head to the beach. Agios Pavlos is one of our favourites – it's a small secluded bay where clear blue water laps against the golden shore.
Top Rhodes Travel Tips
The Palace of the Grand Master ticket usually includes a trip to the Archaeological Museum, so why not see both? It's well worth it to find out more about the island's history.
Pick your holiday rental in Rhodes and discover the ancient history of this idyllic island.

Lindos Diamond Exclusive Villa
Excellent villa in good location
Good location adjacent to St Paul's bay and nearbye shops and minimart. Top quality villa tastefully furnished and all the amenities you would need. Anna (housekeeper) was on hand everyday to keep everything clean and provide fresh towels etc when needed. George and Mary (owners) were on hand by email and text all the time and could not have been more helpful both during the booking process and during the stay. Highly recommended for a stay in central Lindos. Top tip if looking at Luxury villas in Lindos - be aware of other villas that are too close to the music bars for a peaceful stay, however Lindos Diamond is perfectly located. 5 stars. …
Three Brothers Studios, Studio 5
Just returned from another week at beautiful Lindos.
The first time we have stayed at the 3 Brothers studio. It’s in a great location 2 minutes from the main square with great views over the bay
Frank the owner arranged a taxi to pick us up and was there to meet us.
Studio 5 was very spacious compacted to some accommodation we have stayed in in Lindos. The bathroom probably one of the biggest with a shower cubical rather than a curtain that sticks to you.
The rooms were simple but clean , air con included.
There’s a large terrace at the front of the property and if you up early you will see the amazing sun rise.
I would definitely use 3 brothers studios again.
Thank you Frank.
Villa Kalisto with Private Swimming Pool
We loved our holiday in villa Kalisto. We wouldn’t hesitate to book again. The villa is well planned out and set in lovely grounds. It is quite far out so a car would be a good idea. We walked to the beach a few days and had lunch in the hotel at the bottom. We loved it! Rhodes has won my heart ❤️ …
Villa Small Paradise
A lovely villa
The villa is very spacious and extremely well equipped and Maria has put her own finishing touches on it, with lots of little extra's, for example a beautiful fruit bowl on arrival. The location is very central lots of information provided and Maria quick to respond with any queries. Thank you for a lovely stay. …

Wow, absolute and total luxury. We have just returned from a beautiful villa on a beautiful island. In a perfect position on the beautiful island!!.
Thank you to Andy, who was contactable to answer any questions we had about the villa and booking.
You want for nothing at the villa, absolutely everything is there, the kitchen is well equipped and perfect.
We were all very sad to leave..... you nearly ended up with squatters!!! Lol.
The pool is also massive and sooo clean, it was cleaned regularly while we were there. The villa was also cleaned during our stay which was lovely.
We also got married while we were there, so thank you for an amazing holiday to remember. We will definitely be back.
