Description of Villa Arnassica
3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms
Villa Arnassica OverviewSpacious, modern and with lots of character, the delightful Villa Arnassica is just a five minute drive from Ialyssos Beach on Rhodes’ northern coast. With gorgeous sea views and a large amount of outdoor space, this three bedroom villa is conveniently located for nearby Filerimos Hill and the stunning city of Rhodes.
Featuring a large outdoor pool as its centrepiece, Villa Arnassica’s terrace has a seating area right outside the house, as well as a covered dining area with barbecue – a charming spot for meals in the sun. A hammock, parasol and sun loungers ensure there’s always somewhere you can chill out in comfort. There is also a large lawn area which is perfect for children to play on.
Inside, the villa has an impressively designed open-plan living area. In cool white, this air-conditioned space offers lots of seating, a Smart TV, dining area and a well-equipped kitchen, and opens out onto the terrace. You have all you need with a dishwasher, microwave, fridge freezer and more, plus there’s free Wi-Fi throughout the property.
The house can comfortably accommodate up to seven guests. There are three double bedrooms, each with a Smart TV and air conditioning. Two of the bedrooms have balconies overlooking the pool, and one also has an en-suite bathroom with shower. There are two more bathrooms, and space for the seventh guest on the sofa-bed in the living area.
Superbly stylish, Villa Arnassica is conveniently located for both the airport, only 5km away, and the island’s capital city. Rhodes Town’s many attractions are around twenty minutes’ drive away, among them the medieval Old Town and the Palace of the Grand Masters.
Numerous beaches are within easy reach too. As well as Ialyssos, a popular water-sports destination, you have nearby Ixia and Rhodes’ Elli Beach to discover, with many more as you travel further south. Among the island’s must-visit landmarks are the Lindos Acropolis, around one hour away, and the beautiful Valley of the Butterflies, about twenty-five minutes from Ialyssos. Filerimos Monastery, a local favourite, is just ten minutes from your villa.

Villa Arnassica LocationRhodes’ capital city – also called Rhodes – occupies the island’s north-eastern corner and is one of the largest and best-preserved medieval cities in Europe. Among its must-sees is the Palace of the Grand Masters, a huge medieval castle, a good proportion of which is open to visitors. With a long and eventful history that even included a spell as Mussolini’s holiday home, it now hosts a museum and various events and performances throughout the year.
Just down the road, you have Mandraki Port, Elli Beach and the Colossus of Rhodes memorial, while the Street of the Knights is another one not to miss if you’re a history lover. If you’re looking for shops and restaurants, the city has its modern side too, with plenty of both in the Mandraki area.
Down the coast from Rhodes town, you’ll find lots of family fun in Faliraki. While better known for its nightlife, the resort is great for kids with its well-organised beach and big water-park. At the height of summer, it’s one of the hottest spots on the island. To the south, the idyllic Anthony Quinn Bay tempts with its crystal clear waters and is a popular snorkelling spot.
More beaches such as Afantou, Traganou, Archangelos and Agathi lie along the east coast. Said to be the nicest beach on the island, Tsampika is worth a special mention, while Lindos is especially popular. This could well be due to its proximity to the Lindos Acropolis, a stunning clifftop landmark with even more stunning views.
You’ll need to carry on to the island’s southern tip to reach Prasonisi, but it’s worth it. This beach is popular with surfers and kite-surfers, but you don’t need to be sporty to appreciate it – laidback beach bars are a good place to lap up the view of the Aegean.
Rhodes is big on natural beauty, so don’t miss the other big-name attractions – the Valley of the Butterflies and the Epta Piges (Seven Springs) are both unforgettable and supremely photogenic. Also worth a visit is the blissfully chilled seaside spa, Kallithea Springs, found between Rhodes and Faliraki – views to die for included.
Rhodes is certainly heritage-rich, and you’ll find places of interest all over the island. Near Ialyssos, Filerimos Hill is home to a fascinating Byzantine monastery, while Rhodes’ medieval Old Town is full of Gothic churches, mosques and monuments. With around 200 streets and alleys, it’s certainly a labyrinth, but getting lost is the best way to see it. On the island’s western side, look out for the ruins of Kritinia Castle and the ancient town of Kameiros.
