The traditional Greek village of Lardos is situated on the island of Rhodes, surrrounded by green landscapes and pristine beaches with crystal blue waters.
Lardos is on the southeast coast, about 30 miles from Rhodes, the island's largest town. Travel time can take up to an hour and a half. Rental cars are available at the airport or can be rented locally, as can mopeds, which are ideal for exploring. For balmy weather and warm water, the best time to travel is May-June and September-October, when highs are between 21-30 degrees. September is a particularly good time to travel, since this is when Lardos holds their annual wine festival in the village square, with free wine tastings. Lardos is two hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT+2).
The decorated fountain in the village of Lardos is a legacy of the Italians, who rebuilt the area after World War II. The village offers an array of restaurants offering local Greek and international cuisine. In local taverns bands play traditional and modern music in the evenings, which inspires long nights of singing and dancing in true Greek spirit.
Lardos holidays are ideal for families and couples who want to relax on the beach or enjoy one of the numerous watersports such as parasailing, windsurfing, and wakeboarding. The lush countryside is also ideal for mountain biking and horse riding. Those who want to explore historical sites on holiday in Lardos should visit the Knights Fort, which was built in the 15th century. In addition, at the scenic monastery of Panagia of Ipseni, where miracles by the Panagia were witnessed in the 19th century, the nuns hold an annual festival in August. From resorts and beaches to historic and natural wonders, Lardos holidays have something for everyone.
