Enjoying unrivalled, uninterrupted sea views & so much more!

Our spacious two tiered sun-deck is the most magical space to unwind overlooking our Vlicha Bay location – but apart from those jaw-dropping natural landscapes and sea views that our guests savour what also makes this such an unrivalled location for Villa Lindos Kalliopi (VLK) is the easy distances from this villa to all the essential amenities. Although a semi rural location this is not an isolated one and so 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 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. They will also make wedding, birthday and general celebration cakes. Contact them via the link below.

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.

Also in Lindos a visit to Olive Street is highly recommended. The service and ambience is excellent, the restoration of the building it is situated within is beautifully done and the food is a of very high standard.

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.

5km from VLK is Lardos, offering a glimpse of more traditional Greek life. Lardos has many bars and restaurants on offer. Our top suggestion for dining in Lardos (and in-fact for anywhere on the island) is at Roulas Restaurant.  The owners, Maritsa, Mike and Yannis, are so welcoming and the extensive menu food great value.

We also recommend Valentinas, another excellent restaurant in Lardos.

The Grapevine is a local bar in Lardos ran by our property managers Katie and Lee Chandler – ideal for a pre or post dinner drink.

In nearby Pefkos many restaurants can be found, but one extra special one is Philosophia with owners Philippos and Barbara offering a truly romantic setting with uninterrupted sea views. Food and presentation are exceptional and many of our guests are going out of their way to comment on how special this restaurant is. Book a table for sunset. Amazing!

Terpsis is also in Pefkos and is another highly recommended restaurant. The food is mouth watering in taste and presentation. The welcome is always a warm one.

Drive 10 minutes down the coast turn off to Haraki – here you will find, at the waters edge, Bottoms Up.  Ran by Despina and her family the cafe offers excellent breakfasts, lunches and evening meals.

Also at Haraki is the excellent DaVinci`s Restaurant ran by Steve. Excellent decor and food – including speciality pizza (try Pizza Carbonara!) and an amazing sea food shell starter.

Further away, in the new town of Rhodes, we do suggest attempting to get a table at Tamam as the quality of food and the delightful bistro style setting make it one of our personal favourite dining experiences on the island.

Many of the restaurants mentioned can be found reviewed on our Kalliopi Kitchen Food blog written by Karen Watts – all of the editions so far are collected here Kalliopi Kitchen
