I and my family bought a house in Gennadi in 2006, we have been welcomed by the locals and although it is a holiday home we are treated the same as the locals, we would recommend it to anyone visiting Rhodes. A real Greek village with all the charm and friendliness Greece has to offer.

Gennadi is a little piece of paradise - an absolute Greek treat - far from the frenetic tourist zone. Stergos and Poppi run a fabulous restaurant in the center of town; George, Augusta, Themetra and Rula have the best tavern on the Greek coast and Nikos and Maria have phenomenal gyros at their shop on the hill. Love it!!
