Apart from the obvious natural landscapes and sea views of Vlicha Bay, what also makes this such an unrivalled location for VLK is the easy distances to all the essential amenities. Although a semi rural location this is not an isolated one and much is conveniently within walking distance.
Vlicha Bay is in the middle of the east coast of Rhodes – between the resort of Kalathos and the historic town of Lindos. The beach itself is only a 5 minute walk (300 meters) down from VLK to the waters edge. The beach, popular with water sports enthusiasts, is a pebbled one with the final quarter turning sandy.
A five minute walk from the villa is the large local supermarket, Flavaris, offering delicatessen, butcher, a wide selection of wines and spirits and all groceries. Adjacent to the supermarket is a coffee shop, Zucherro, with a bakery selling quality cakes and ice creams.
Most of the hotels in the bay have a fairly open policy to welcome outside guests. The Rotonda restaurant at the Lindian Jewel Hotel also offer the excellent service allowing our guests to call them and order off their take out menu – which is then delivered to your door at VLK.
VLK enjoys close proximity to Lindos (3 minutes drive away). In Lindos itself there are many diverse restaurants, bars, shops and banks. The magnificent Acropolis towers over the white washed village. Granted a preservation status, Lindos has managed to maintain the old traditions and charms you would expect.
There are many restaurants in Lindos but none nicer and more special than Arhontiko – and one we wholeheartedly recommend. Dimitri and his family deliver a warm welcome and a delicious menu.
The utterly charming Melenos Hotel is well worth a visit for a drink, lunch or evening meal. The ambience and spectacle created by the owner Michalis Melenos is second to none.
On the beach at St.Paul`s in Lindos is Tambakio, a bar / restaurant with impressive views of the bay it sits within. Gloriously lantern lit in the evenings.
The nearby resort of Pefkos is a 5 minute drive away and has attractive beaches, shops and tavernas.
Incidentally if you are planning a wedding on Rhodes we suggest the unique and exclusive service offered by Anna from Rhodes Beach Weddings. You have a choice of idyllic locations for a special beach ceremony at such beaches as Stegna, Tsambika, Haraki, Agathi or Red Beach. A link to their website is at the bottom of this page.
