All this only a few minutes away from the city's entertainment and market center and the lovely beaches of the island.   OFF THE BEATEN TRACK BUT CLOSE TO THE ACTION 2 Km TO THE NEAREST BEACH 5 Km TO THE MEDIEVAL CITADEL (OLD TOWN) AND THE CENTER OF RHODES CITY 6 Km TO FALIRAKI 5 Km TO KALITHEA SPRINGS SUPERMARKET, GROSERY STORE,MEAT STORE, CAFE AT LESS THAN 1 Km PLAYGROUND 2Km BEACH CLUB 2 Km AIRPORT 15 Km ACTIVITIES YOU MAY ENJOY DURING YOUR STAY: EXCERCISE, MEDITATE OR RELAX ON THE VERANDA OR LAWN WHILE THE CHILDREN PLAY IN THE GARDEN:  TABLE TENNIS, MOUNTAIN BIKE, GETING INVOLVED IN THE FARMWORK, PICK FRUIT AND VEGATABLES FROM THE ORCHARD AND VEGETABLE GARDEN, AND EGGS FROM THE CHICKEN COOP. EVERYTHING IS ORGANICALLY GROWN. MUSIC: STEREO PLAYER WITH  A COLLECTION OF CD'S CLASSIC, JAZZ, ETHNIC, ROCK. PIANO   BIRDWATCHING: AN ABUNDUNCE OF BIRDS LIVE IN THE VALEY, FROM TINY CHIFFCHAFS TO LARGE BUZZARDS. YOU CAN OBSERVE THEM FROM THE VERANDA OR EVEN FROM YOUR BEDROOM. BINOCULARS PROVIDED. THINGS YOU MIGHT LOVE OR HATE: THE ROAD: You have to drive through a 500 m. dirt road to get to the house . It is what keeps the valley Hidden, and it is  perfect for a walk. THE CATS: There are free cats roaming around the house and garden. They are very friendly and will come up to you for feeding and pampering. THE QUIET: It is very quiet (except for the rooster and frogs).  You are expected to respect this. This is not a house for wild parties. THERE ARE VERY FEW AND LOW LIGHTS OUTSIDE: We try to keep artificial light as low and as close to the house as possible. Light polution has an impact on  bird's and other animal's breeding and feeding habits. BIOCLIMATIC DESIGN vs AIRCONDITIONING: The house is designed to be cooled by natural draft. We sacrificed this only in one room for the sake of the view so this room is the only one with airconditioning. STEPPING STONES: There are a few pathways with stepping stones. You will have to walk consciously. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 00000187723More
