Lived in Afandou a very long time ago
posted on February 16, 2010 by Zina
I lived in Afandou a very long time ago - 1988 - and things may well have changed since then. It was a very traditional village and, whilst overtly friendly, one had to be very careful as the people were extremely 'gossipy' and could make life awkward. If you're just going on holiday, you'll most likely have a fabulous time, but if you are planning to live there, especially as part of a local family, beware.
Great place

Excited about visiting Afandou
posted on June 4, 2009 by Sylvia & Al
We are so looking forward to a holiday in Afandou after all the great reviews. We normally go to Kavos in Corfu where we have made so many Greek friends. Thought we would try somewhere else for a change and Afandou sounds like a lovely, friendly place and just the sort of place we would like. Looking for some real Greek food, any suggestions where to eat?
Will tell you all about it on our return. Sylvia & Al

The reviews sound excellent cant wait too stay in Afandou come August! However I was wondering if anybody could help me with a question, I am taking my 4month old son and wondered if there was anywhere in the area that I will be able too get Nappies and baby milk as the thought of packing enough for 2 weeks is scary. Would appreciate anyones advice or local knowledge, Thank You x
Loved every minute of my stay!

I lived in Afantou in 1994 - 1995 and loved every minute of my stay, due to lack of funds I haven't been away on holiday for the past seven years but this year I will be booking a two week holiday for next year to take my children to were I feel is home and I can't wait.
The people are so friendly and will remember you year in year out. It's an ideal spot for exploring the island because the buses to Lindos and psinthos go through the vilage and back again to rhodes town.
I used to work as a travel agent and would send all my customers to Afantou and they returned year after year. Once bitten by the Afantou bug you'll never want to go any where else.
If i was able I would be living there now.
The Afantou Experience
posted on July 6, 2007 by Karen
Afandou is undoubtedly one of the best villages in which to stay on the island. It has plenty of shops and bars, and restaurants offering a plethora of Greek, English and European dishes, yet still is a place where people live and work, where you can see a glimpse of the traditional way of life: old people still living in one room houses, men playing backgammon in the kafenio and the whole village taking part in religious festivals.
The village is within walking distance of the beach, a shingle beach but excellent for snorkelling and water sports. It is also one of the few beaches on which you can actually relax without hiring a sun bed, and after a day's relaxation, you can take a short ride on the road train back to the village.
You will be welcomed by people in the village; one of the main reasons why I returned. I'd initially stayed in Faliraki, but discovered Afantou, then returned every year to stay at the Fillipos hotel to enjoy the company of Sam and Georgia and family.
Afandou live life

What a place to visit I was 17 when I first came to Afandou now at the tender age of 37 every year one or two months at a time. Now we have an old house in the village. there are some very good bars. if you are near in the summer come and meet me and kaz in the life bar just ask for us at the bar Yani will call us if we are not in. happy holiday.
Looking forward to visiting

Afandou

My wife and I have been visiting Afandou now for 14 years. Our first visit was in 1992.

My wife and I have made some real good friends in Afandou both locals and regular visitors and have excellent holidays there, we like Afandou so much we have had a Villa built which was completed in May 2006, is there any better recommendation than that!

Fifth time
posted on September 28, 2005 by moira lapsley
This year has been our fifth time in afandou. we love it. its the most beautiful place we have ever been to. the village is so relaxed and friendly the restaurants have the best cuisine ever everything is cooked fresh. because we have been so many times we have made a lot of friends. When we go back people remember you and make you feel so welcome.
A 'must try' place :)

I have stayed in Afandou twice over the last nine months. My first time was a last minute deal which we thourougly enjoyed, that we came back in June as a main holiday.
The village is just unique with the town going about its daily routines, and the people are so friendly, they alway say hello.
Try and go to Smile cafe, this is where Theranee works, she looks after you as if she was your Greek mother,and everything is no problem. We stayed at the Scala apartments. These apartments were spotless and have air conditioning, tv toaster, kettle, fan and even a curtain in the shower. Vengelais and his family go out their way, so you enjoy your holiday. I am unsure were to go on holiday next year, as I dont think there is anywhere better than Afandou, you must try it some time, you will not be disappointed.
Its Great!

I return to Afandou for the third time this year. This is the place to stay on the island, far enough away from Faliraki and a cheap bus ride to Rhodes town. The wee restaurants are marvellous and the lovely village atmosphere in the evenings is so friendly. The beach is never crowded and the water is as clear as a bell. Rent a car and it is easy to drive into the country. I will always come back to stay here, it's so easy, a real holiday.
