Nestled on a cliff side, this hotel
blends in magically with the surrounding natural environment of Navarone Bay
and offers breathtaking views of the Aegean.
There is a 200 metre stretch of sandy beach directly in front of the hotel
, with crystal clear, turquoise waters, and you are just a short distance away from the renowned traditional town of Lindos. (1.5km)
Lindos, a powerful maritime city in antiquity, is considered today one of the most attractive resorts of the island,
a happy marriage of the beauties of nature with its cultural heritage.
Its houses, perched on the hillsides, stand out in dazzling white against the blue background of sky and sea.
A walk among its narrow paved streets
reveals the beauty of the traditional island architecture, and winding alleys
bring you to the ancient acropolis,
and from this high vantage point, the sea spreads out before you, shimmering to the horizon. The ancient city of Rhodes (55km)
is worth a daytrip for history lovers - on the acropolis of ancient Rhodes, on St. Stephen’s Hill, you can see the ancient (and still used) stadium, the white marble Odeon, and the restored temple of Apollo, a popular spot for magnificent sunset watching.
Take the opportunity to have your photograph taken in front of the famous windmills
and “Elafakia” (island deer), two of the island’s most famous landmarks, located at Mandraki, where Colossus, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world
, was standing. The whole of the ‘Old Town’, the largest inhabited medieval town in Europe, is a monument in its own right
, as well as being an integral part of modern Rhodes. Inside the city walls its multicultural past can be vividly seen: the Knights’ Palace
and the Hospital, the Gothic churches, arches and cloisters, Byzantine churches, a working ‘hamam’
(Turkish bath), fountain squares, imposing houses with atriums and inner courtyards, museums and galleries…
The famous ‘Street of the Knights’
ends outside the magnificent Palace of the Grandmasters;
you can still imagine the sounds of their horses, while, at twilight, under flickering lanterns, you may well catch a glimpse of armor and cloak with red cross, the emblem of the Knights of St. John.
Just outside the Old Town, around the grass of the medieval moat, there is a lovely walk under the huge walls. Inside, you can stroll through the maze of lanes, cobbled in black and white pebbles, or shop for trinkets or fine gifts in the busy market-streets.
