Description of Villa Salakos
3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms
Villa Salakos OverviewWonderfully homely and comfortable, the 3-bedroom Salakos Villa enjoys a village location on the western side of Rhodes. Around 30 minutes’ drive from the east coast and 45 minutes from the capital, this holiday home features an attractive garden with terrace and pool.
This property offers lovely views of the surrounding area, which can be appreciated from the outdoor terrace. As well as a swimming pool with step access, this space features a covered dining area and loungers. There is also a lawned area next to the pool.
There is direct access from the terrace into the main living area of the house. Inside, you have a cosy lounge with a wood-burning stove, TV, seating and dining areas. Large windows ensure plenty of light as well as a great view out over the pool and beyond. The modern kitchen is equipped with a large fridge freezer, dishwasher and washing machine, and there’s also a breakfast bar with stool seating for two.
Three bedrooms include two doubles and one twin. Wooden ceilings and bare stone walls add character to these well-furnished rooms. There is air-conditioning, and the master bedroom on the upper floor also has a TV and desk. With the inclusion of a sofa-bed in the lounge, Villa Salakos can accommodate up to seven guests. The house has two bathrooms, one with a shower and one with a bathtub.
The village of Salakos is well placed for many of the island’s main attractions. Both the Valley of the Butterflies and the Seven Springs are approximately 30 minutes’ drive away, as are beaches like Tsambika and Kolymbia. Driving to Lindos, home of the Lindos Acropolis will take around 55 minutes, and you can reach the island’s eponymous capital in about 45 minutes. Here you can visit the mighty Palace of the Grand Masters and the rest of Rhodes’ impressive medieval town.
More locally, the village has a handful of cafés and restaurants with outdoor terraces, as well as a small supermarket. Sat at the foot of the Mount of the Prophet Elijah, Salakos enjoys a spectacular setting, surrounded by olive groves and vineyards, yet it’s actually most famous for its fine walnuts.
Around 15 minutes away, the beach at Kameiros is an enticing place at which to spend the day. Follow the coastal road south and you will come to the village of Kamiros Skala where there are several fish restaurants by the harbourside.

Villa Salakos Location
Rhodes is the perfect place to experience the charm of the Greek islands. Large enough to offer diversity but small enough to be easily navigable, there’s always something new to see not too far away.
Don’t miss the impressive Old Town in Rhodes, one of the largest and best-preserved medieval cities in Europe. The Palace of the Grand Masters is the main attraction of this UNESCO World Heritage site. A walk around the old city walls will help you get your bearings, which may help – there’s a jumble of around 200 streets here, but getting lost is part of the fun. If you fancy uncovering some local history, visit The Museum of Modern Greek Art or the Archaeological Museum.
Rhodes city is the centre of the island’s nightlife, and there are countless bars and clubs. There are some good restaurants (along with quite a few less good ones), as well as multiplex cinemas and the impressive National Theatre. Landmarks like the Rhodes Acropolis and the Fort of St Nicholas are worth looking out for, while the city’s Rodini Park is said the be the world’s oldest landscaped park. There is also a good aquarium, found at the island’s northernmost point.
The Valley of the Butterflies is one of Rhodes’ best-loved attractions. It’s particularly lovely in summer when hordes of colourful butterflies appear. You could combine your visit with a trip to the Epta Piges (Seven Springs), about 35 minutes’ drive south, another magical natural sight. The waterfalls are spectacular in this popular nature reserve.
Down the eastern coast from Rhodes town, Faliraki isn’t just about nightlife. The resort offers good family attractions too. The large beach is very popular, and there are water-parks and a go-karting track. The idyllic Anthony Quinn Bay, a pretty beach with crystal clear waters, is a favoured snorkelling spot, just south of the town.
Rhodes has many more beaches down the eastern coast – look out for Kolymbia, Agathi and Lindos as you venture further south. One of the most spectacular is found right at the tip of the island. As you will no doubt see, the breathtaking Prasonisi is particularly popular with surfers. In fact, Rhodes is ideal for sports of all kinds – golf, tennis, horse riding, scuba-diving, beach volleyball and many more besides. Excellent walking and cycling routes, and the equally excellent weather, offer yet more reasons to enjoy the great outdoors.
The ascent to the clifftop Lindos Acropolis is steep enough to qualify as exercise – it will take about 20 minutes to walk up to it from the village. It’s well worth the effort – you won’t forget the incredible views it enjoys from its vantage point. Later, treat yourself to dinner on one of Lindos’ many rooftop terraces.
