Life centers around the wide tree lined Lardos village square where many of the locals still go to draw natural spring water from the fountain, preferring it to the perfectly drinkable piped water supply. You will find many of the friendly locals enjoy sitting in the cafes (kafeneia) on the square, drinking Greek coffee or the local ouzo, while talking and playing backgammon (tavli).
The numerous local restaurants offer a variety of mouth watering selections of both Greek and international cuisines. By day, organized excursions are available to Lindos Village, and the Acropolis of Lindos, trips around the island, shopping trips to Rhodes Town and to the ruins at ancient Kamiros and the Monasteries.
Sailing trips are also available to the island of Simi and to Marmaris in Turkey. By night, local bands will occasionally play live music on the square and plentiful bars do take on a more modern flavor of music. Alternatively, the local hotels also offer contemporary discos and Karaoke evenings, while Lindos, with its more extensive night life, can easily be reached by taxi or bus. Your enjoyment of the night life may include spontaneous Greek dancing in a bar, restaurant, or in a Greek wedding.
Once you arrive to Eleousa, you will find yourself in a tiny village surrounded by plane trees, at the heart of one of the most verdant parts of the island, offering pure country air and purling sound of running waters.

Located in the heart of Rhodes, the quaint village of Afandou boasts a rich history that dates back to the times of piracy in the Mediterranean. In those days, locals would retreat from the coast to seek refuge in the island's interior. The village's name derives from the Greek word "áfandos", meaning "invisible", as it was well hidden from the sea. As you wander through the charming streets and alleys, you can sense the spirit of times gone by and imagine the tales of seafaring adventure and survival that shaped the village's unique character.

What makes it really worth a visit is the wild beauty of the landscape.
