Luxury Holidays in Rhodes

Rhodes provides an element of luxury displayed in its cultural delights and rich inspiring history. Ancient ruins date back to Trojan times, Ottoman minarets remember Turkish rule and terracotta churches recall the Byzantine era. Lindos has its own acropolis perched on a hillside with panoramic views of the island, alongside towers and temple remains, while inland is a wealth of beautiful pine forests and olive groves just waiting to be explored.

The island’s capital, Rhodes Town is an authentic walled city holding legends of knights over two centuries, and the harbour area was once home to one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Colossus. Traditional villages and mountain hamlets dominate the centre of the island, and Apolakkia is not to be missed. Here you will be greeted by a monastery, whitewashed villas, ancient windmills and a lake ideal for a refreshing swim. If you fancy a day trip, the neighbouring island of Symi is easily accessible via boat from Rhodes Town and home to a pretty port and harbour area.

When to go

Rhodes enjoys the most sunshine of any other Greek island – 300 days a year, in fact. Temperate springs and long, dry summers give you plenty of time to visit. The earlier months of the season suit sightseeing,  while the mid-summer months of July and August push 30°C – perfect for keen beach-goers. Even in the height of summer, the island’s cool winds take care of any humidity. 

Visa Information

Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Greece


In Greece, a service charge will be included in the bill at restaurants and bars. Much like the UK, an additional tip is not required, although is appreciated for particularly good service. It is common to round off the amount when paying cash, particularly with wait staff and taxi drivers. 

Introduction to languages

The official language of Greece is Greek.  English is widely spoken, too, so getting by is easy.

When staying in Rhodes, be sure to visit Rhodes Old Town. The UNESCO World Heritage Site is the largest of its kind in Greece, with kilometres of walls enveloping the maze of narrow medieval alleyways.
