Lahania village

Lahania/Lachania Village is a rural village at the total south of Rhodes island. The north of Rhodes is the busy tourist area. But people who want a quiet holiday in an unspoilt area head to the south where things are more natural. Mountains, rare deer and other animals along with historic walking routes and lots of meadows and farming land make this area unique and beautiful. Around 30 years ago the village was deserted Some artists discovered this village and rebuilt a lot of its ruins, thus creating an authentic and artistic atmosphere. Luckily unlike other places in the world it was kept like this and the village still has this rural non touristic artistic and authentic atmosphere over it. With narrow streets and whitewashed houses, that form a labyrinth and all leading to the main square of Lahania where there is a traditional restaurant and the local church along with its famous priest papa yiorgos who owns the another restaurant on the main street of Lahania. If you really crave the feeling of the hours slowly ticking away in a relaxed and beautiful location, then Lahania is the place to be.

Yet another wonderful holiday in Lachania. Gudrun has some beautiful properties that guarantee you a peaceful, perfect holiday. Villa is delightful, always a lovely selection of home prepared food in the fridge on arrival. Lachania is a great village away from the crowds. We will be back AGAIN!!

greatly relaxing and easy holiday !

  • 5 of 5

we had a wonderful time at this lovely house. it had the perfect size for my daughter, wife and me. it has been very quiet and peaceful. even though it would have been possible to stay with more people. gudrun and micah always were reachable when we had a question regarding some tips for does and donts, restaurantes, beaches, etc.

the south of rhodes was just what we were looking for. only very few tourists. all locals were very kind. most beaches are stony but the water has always been cristal clear.

we simply enjoyed our stay to the maximum !

thanks a lot !
