Where Shall We Go?

Exclusively Travel started with its flagship resort in Lindos, Rhodes in 2009 where it still operates under the specialist brand of Exclusively Lindos.   Firstly expanding to other resorts in around Rhodes including Pefkos, Lardos and Kiotari and then adding a whole host of options all over the sunshine island of Rhodes. 

 

 


Welcome to Rhodes

Rhodes

Sunny Rhodes is the largest island in the Dodecanese situated in the south eastern Aegean seas, close to Turkey and north of Crete.  Rhodes has long been a destination for sun worshippers with some fantastic beaches dotted along its coastlines.  With a sophisticated and cosmopolitan city, thriving night life, ancient monuments scattered across the island, hidden coves, crystal clear waters and solitary beaches, traditional, rural villages clinging to sun drenched hillsides miles from anywhere; Rhodes has it all.   If you want to experience a corner of Greece steeped in history and culture, whilst enjoying a bit of modern living, then Rhodes is for you.  It offers water-sports, stunning walks, ancient sites and of course, fabulous beaches.  With lively bars and clubs in busy coastal resorts, award winning restaurants in ancient villages and quiet sea side tavernas offering simple, traditional cuisine, there’s a perfect holiday waiting for everyone.

The island is 80km long and almost 40km wide.  The centre of the island is mountainous and the pine clad mountain roads will take you to tiny villages seemingly clinging to the terraced hills surrounded by olive and citrus groves.  These are the places to seek out local produce such as honey, feta cheese and wine and sample traditional Greek cooking in simple village tavernas. 

The coastal areas, particularly on the eastern coast, offer a collection of popular resorts, including magical Lindos.  Here in Lindos you will find traditional houses in a breath taking ancient panorama, together with modern amenities and luxury living in the nearby 5 star hotels.  This is a popular area for detached, luxury villas with private pools, most with fabulous sea views.  The eastern coast is well served by a 2 and  4 lane highway.  The island becomes less developed the further south you travel and the resorts of Pefkos and Kiotari are the final coastal villages before you meet the long stretch of pebbly beach stretching south to Prassonisi, the southern-most tip of the island where the Aegean and Mediterranean seas meet.   

 The western coast is cooler and windier and here you will find not just kite surfing and hotel complexes in the more developed northern area, but tranquil farming regions and lush forests.  The ancient cities of Kamiros and Ialyssos are on this coast and are a fascinating glimpse of past civilisations. 

Rhodes is a popular stopping off point for cruise ships and Greek island hoppers. The beautiful island of Symi is just a two hour boat trip away from Rhodes’ port, and the enchanting island of Chalki just an hour away from Kamiros Skala port.

In the hot and dry summer months on Rhodes it can be difficult to imagine a cool and lush environment, but that is exactly what awaits you at Seven Springs.  Located inland between Kolymbia on the eastern coast, and the mountainous village of Arhipoli, Seven Springs is a little oasis of tranquility and beauty.  The seven natural springs flow into the river ending up in a small man-made lake which can be accessed by a narrow tunnel about 190m long.  The lake was made by the Italians during their occupation of the island to provide water for nearby Kolymbia.  You can still see the stone aqueducts along the road side which would have carried the water to the town.  This area is great for walkers, nature lovers and photographers.  Nearby Profitis Elias is just a 15 minute drive away making the two attractions a great combination for a day.  There are two traditional tavernas in the village of Eleousa on the way to Profitis Elias which make for a great lunch time break.

The facilities at Kallithea were first inaugurated by the Italians with great officialdom on 1 July 1929 and attracted large numbers of patients and scientists from all over the world. The springs have been famous since the time of Ancient Greece for their beneficial healing properties of the red waters flowing from the surrounding rocks. In August and September crowds of visitors regularly came to the area and set up makeshift camps in the surrounding area to be near the spring.

 

Since the time of the Dorian Hexapolis and the time of the Knights, the spring has attracted visitors from the surrounding islands and the coasts of Asia Minor and as far away from the depths of the Orient. The spring was a meeting place for the Orthodox Christians, Muslims and Jews. The Political governor at this time Mario Lago, took the initiative to conduct a systematic study of its waters known to the locals as 'Tsillonero' after the cleansing properties in 1912. The survey was conducted by the distinguished hydrologists and doctors under Gustave Gasperini. After the death of Gasperini his son Carlo took over his work, along with the person who was later to become the director of the curative springs, Enea Brunetti.

 

In December 1928 the first buildings were constructed and considered as Royal grounds in order to guarantee its perfect function. The work was assigned to Pietro Lombardi whose plans made it one of the best architectural creations of that period.

 

The waters of Kallithea were suitable for the treatment for conditions such as arthritis, skin conditions, obesity, diabetes, tropical diseases, dysentery, malaria, allergies, asthma, cystitis, diarrhoea and intestinal conditions.

 

Kallithea Springs - Reborn

 

After years of abandon and neglect, Kallithea town council and its mayor, Yannis Iatridis decided to take on the important task of renovating the site. The springs were restored to their earlier glory with tremendous effort and was successfully opened once again to the public.

Nestled in the north western side of the island this pretty, lush valley is lined with trees, narrow paths, waterfalls and little bridges over the river Pelekanos and is home to thousands of Jersey Tiger Moth Butterflies.  After the rainy season has finished towards the end of May, this natural phenomenon can really be enjoyed when the colonies are attracted by the aroma from the valley’s Oriental Sweet gum trees – the butterflies settle in great numbers on the trunks of trees, flora and fauna and the sight is spectacular.  Great care must be taken not to startle them – over enthusiastic visitors to the area have resulted in a decrease in the number of colonies here.  However, this is a wonderful day out for nature lovers, walkers and photographers.  The area is home to 4 or 5 traditional villages such as Maritsa, Kremasti and Theologos, all worth exploring on foot and for their tavernas – perfect for a lazy lunch.   

 

If you fancy an interesting walk amongst the pine trees with some fabulous views across to the Turkish coastline and a peek at the old Italian Governor’s derelict villa perched high on the hillside then follow the signs to Profitis Elias.  Eventually you will reach two remarkable alpine looking buildings, now hotels.  Like the areas around Kolymbia and Epta Piges you will see a few Italian style farm buildings from the Italian occupation.  Using a good guide book such as the AA Guide to Rhodes, you can start a popular circular walk (takes about an hour and half) which takes you up behind the derelict villa to the ridge of the mountain Profitis Elias.  The path way is generally well kept and delineated, and the views are breath taking.  Up amongst the pine trees is the place to be – the temperature can be wonderfully cooler!

The road to Tsambika monastery turns off the main road, some meters before the road to Tsambika beach. The road leads half of the way up on the hill. From this point you will have to walk up the hill, following the 350 steps. On the top of the hill you will find the tiny, Byzantine church, dedicated to Our Lady. It's perched high at 300 m with commanding coastal views, both north over Kolymbia and south over Tsambika beach until Lindos, which makes it worth the climb up. The legend is, that any woman, who has problems, having children should go up there (barefoot), to pray to the Virgin and she will be blessed with children. Here on Rhodes the success of this visit means the child must be called Tsambikos if it's a boy, and Tsambika if it's a girl. This name is unique on Rhodes. If you doubt this habit, just call this name out on a busy street, and you will see how successful the monastery is. The saints day is the 7. September

There are a couple of great tavernas en route to the beach and perfect for some well earned refreshment after your climb.
