This newly-built three storey house is just 4kms south of Gennadi with a long garden leading from a large patio directly onto a wide, secluded beach with spectacular views. It is divided into two apartments : the studio Aphrodite for 1-2 persons and the larger Poseidon for up to 7 persons. There are sea-view balconies to every room with the studio apartment Aphrodite having 2 very large ones with a 300 degree panorama of the sea and surrounding countryside. A substantial paved area to the front and side of the house will contain several cars. Gennadi can be reached by walking either along a pleasant country road or along the wide, quiet beach. The whole area has retained its Greek identity with subtle tourism. It is perfect for hill-walking, cycling and for those who like the countryside, with tourist facilities close by in Pefkos and Lindos.

Coast/Beach
The beauty of this property is its position next to the beach, which is almost private because access from the road is very limited to passing traffic. It is used mainly by residents. The 10 kilometre sweep of Gennadi Bay is magnificent with views to Kiotari and Pefkos. The beach is sand and pebble. It is ideal for beachcombing. The sea is clean with a Green Flag award and is suitable for swimming for most of the year.

Golf
Golf facilities are available on the island.

Travel
The only airport is less than an hour by car. Car hire is strongly recommended. There is a regular bus service from Gennadi.
Cheap Airline operators to Athens (e.g. EasyJet)and Domestic flights (Aegean and Olympic) can often be a lot cheaper with a little time added.

It is about 6kms to Kiotari, 17kms to lively Pefkos and 22kms to the famous tourist centre of Lindos. It is 24kms to Prassonissi in the south where the Mediterranean and the Aegean Seas meet spectacularly.
