Villa Mirtenis OverviewA five-minute drive from the beach, Villa Mirtenis is a homely six-bedroom property in Ialysos. Situated at the bottom of Filerimos Hill, about twenty minutes from Rhodes’ eponymous capital city, this villa is the perfect base for a larger group – allowing up to fifteen people to enjoy its magnificent outdoor pool and terrace.
The honeycomb design of the private pool gives this villa an eye-catching centrepiece. Around the edge you have sun loungers and parasols, and there’s a barbecue and outdoor dining area alongside comfortable seating areas. A separate building beside the pool even houses a cosy bar which is great as an evening hangout.
Immaculately presented, the house itself features a spacious kitchen and dining area with seating for eight, enjoying direct access to the terrace. Comfortable lounges with sumptuous sofas and TV offer lots of relaxing space, and there’s a pool table with adjacent seating in the hall.

In addition, there is a twin bedroom and a single bedroom, both ideal for children, with a cot also available on request. A total of five bathrooms can be found at Villa Mirtenis, one of which has a bathtub.
The property also offers air conditioning, parking and free Wi-Fi. The upper terrace is furnished and overlooks the pool area, giving you the most amazing views of the verdant surroundings.
This villa is conveniently located just a ten-minute drive from the island’s airport, and a short walk from local amenities including shops, bars and restaurants. Ialysos Beach is a great place for water-sports, and only 900m from Villa Mirtenis.

Villa Mirtenis LocationThe largest of the Dodecanese Islands, Rhodes enjoys a wonderful Aegean outlook. Full of gorgeous countryside and amazing beaches, it delivers an unforgettable holiday and keeps visitors coming back for more.
In the north east of the island, you’ll find the capital. Also called Rhodes, it’s one of the largest and best-preserved medieval cities in Europe. The city is great for shopping and dining, and hosts attractions include the Museum of Modern Greek Art, the Marine Aquarium and National Theatre. The big hitter is the mighty Palace of the Grand Masters, with its impressive towers and battlements, which also features an Archaeological Museum, housed in the former Hospital of the Knights. You can visit parts of the inside of the palace too.
Other notable attractions are Elli Beach and the pretty Rodini Park, while a number of historic buildings surround the majestic Mandraki Harbour – perhaps the most glamorous way to enter the city. As befits a city of its status, Rhodes has the best developed nightlife scene on the island, with a huge casino and numerous bars and clubs. You’ll find no shortage of places to eat, with traditional Greek cuisine and seafood particularly well represented.
Head down the east coast and you will find countless beaches of various sizes and characters. Faliraki is big and bold and well equipped, while Anthony Quinn Bay is smaller, idyllic and perfect for a dip in the crystal clear waters. Head further still and there are gorgeous spots like Tsampika, Kolymbia and Agathi, while Prasonisi rounds things off at the southern tip of the island – a popular haunt of kite surfers and other water-sport enthusiasts.
Rhodes is ideal for sports of all kinds, with golf courses, tennis courts and scuba-diving centres, among its near-endless facilities. You don’t need to get competitive to get active, with excellent walking and cycling routes providing a fine way to enjoy some lesser-seen parts of the island.
The Valley of the Butterflies is one of Rhodes’ best-loved attractions, and well worth visiting – it lives up to its name in summer when you could find yourself surrounded by the creatures. About 35 minutes’ drive away, there are more natural wonders in the form of the Epta Piges, or Seven Springs.
Rhodes has some notable historic buildings all over the island, from monasteries to castle ruins, but few are as iconic as the Lindos Acropolis. Standing on the clifftop at a height of 116m, the views are as spectacular as the remains. Numerous other historic sights are found all around Lindos, so take the time to explore the village too. These days, it’s also known for its many rooftop restaurant terraces and upscale nightlife, while beaches like pretty St Paul’s Bay are also well worth a look.
