Holiday Home in Malona
This is a great opportunity to stay in a real Greek village house, with all its unique charm. This house has been renovated with traditional materials and Eco friendly techniques. The joy of this house, is that it is away from the mainstream tourism areas of the island. You can choose when to join the hustle and bustle of tourist hotspots, or totally escape and easily explore the wilder, emptier parts of the island from here.
Malona is located in easy reach of lots of great beaches, and only 5 mins to your nearest 3 beaches, Sandy, fine pebbles or stones are your choices. 15 mins from Lindos, 45 mins to Rhodes town, and 45 mins over to the wilder areas of Monolithos. A car is a necessary part of a holiday here!
If you are the kind of people who like to experience something a little different, and enjoy being in the heart of the real Greek life with all its charm, character and quirks, this is the house for you, and be assured the local taverna is excellent too.

House in Koskinou
“ I LOVED my stay at Clare’s place. It’s always a pleasure to stay in someones real home-second home in this case. Instead of some bland Ikea experience, you get to spend time in a property that’s been decorated with love and character, filled with possessions that refelct the idiosyncracies of the owners. The Fourno house has been fabuously restored…..staying in Malona was itself a treat. It’s a real place with real people….”

” Being in an actual friendly Greek village off the tourist radar was an excellent experience of the real Rhodes.
Clare has done a wonderful job of renovating the village”s old bakery.
Close proximity for driving to all of island yet off beaten track was appreciated after spending a couple days in the main city Rhodes.
Host was very responsive to any issues we had. “
