The Lindos area is made up of 3 parts:
Lindos Village - Buzzing, very picturesque, days on the beach, nights in the restaurants, bars and clubs
Vlycha Bay – Self contained beach with tavernas, cafes and water sports
Lardos – Lively Greek village with some great tavernas and cafes. Great for sitting out and enjoying village life! Lardos beach also offers some great tavernas and water-sports.
Most suitable for:
Adults wanting to enjoy lazy days on the beaches, swimming or snorkelling in the warm Mediterranean sea. Excellent food and great roof top terraces in the evening. Culture - visit the acropolis for a real taste of history and fabulous views. Children will enjoy the beaches, ice cream parlours and crepe shops.
Lindos provides a self contained adult playground with all amenities within easy walking distance. There are no cars in the village making it very safe to wander around the cobbled streets without fear of traffic. There is an excellent range of restaurants and bars to choose from as well as night clubs. The streets are also full of wonderful gift shops offering souvenirs, beautiful handmade crafts and some lovely clothes boutiques. The shops are open during the day and late into the evening providing a great opportunity to walk through the village before or after dinner. There are also several small supermarkets that cater for most of your needs, a pharmacy, a bank and ATM's. To avoid the crowds, the best times to go are early season - April through to June or late season - September through to November. April and May are exceptionally pretty in Lindos when the Spring flowers are scattered over the surrounding hillsides, skies are blue and the sun is not too hot. September is a favourite for many Lindos veterans (many people have been coming to Lindos for over 30 years) as the sea has been warmed through the summer months and there are less people than in July and August. Recommendations of things to do during your stay in Lindos Visit the acropolis - this is a must, even for people who are not that interested in history as the views are spectacular! Swim in St Paul's Bay - a lot of people just stick to the main sandy beach and Pallas Beach. St Paul's Bay is exceptionally beautiful and has great snorkelling. Walk along the peninsula to the old windmill - a beautiful walk in Spring when the flowers are in bloom Swim off the rocks to the side of Pallas Beach - crystal clear waters for those real sea lovers. You can also swim into the natural caves here. Eat on one of the roof terraces - take in the views of the village life going on below Enjoy the sunrise - for early risers or people who have not made it to bed yet, there are some beautiful sunrises over the bays.
The nearest holiday villas to Lindos Village are in the Psaltos area - otherwise known as Navarone Bay after the film 'The Guns of Navarone' which was filmed there. This area is often chosen by guests getting married or attending weddings in St Paul's Bay in Lindos as this is the closest accommodation to the church. The holiday villas are around a 30 to 40 minute walk into the village or a 3min drive by car.
Some smaller properties are available at the top of Lindos - an area known as Krana which are around a 20 minute walk into the village. Lindos is a large walking village with uneven road surfaces (many of the streets are cobbled); it is therefore unsuitable for people with walking difficulties.
Vlycha Bay is slightly further away from the village (around 2 kilometres) where we have some beautiful modern holiday villas all with true infinity pools and within very easy walking distance (just a couple of minutes) to the beach with its restaurants, cafes and water sports facilities. Vlycha is a great base for guests wanting to indulge themselves in a little luxury and be just a few minutes' drive from Lindos village. The newest Wedding Venue on Rhodes 'Ktima' is also located in Vlycha bay.
Our selection of holiday villas here are therefore ideal for Bride and Groom, family and friends!
We have holiday villas that are within very easy walking distance of Lardos village and Lardos beach. Enjoy the tranquillity of your own luxury holiday villa with private pool and stroll into the village or one of the beach tavernas for an evening meal and after dinner drink without worrying about driving home! Lardos is also less than a 10 minute drive from Lindos.
