House in Malona

Fourno Bakery House
Holiday Home in Malona

This is a great opportunity to stay in a real Greek village house, with all its unique charm. The house was renovated with local materials and Eco friendly techniques. The joy of this house, is that it is away from the mainstream tourism areas of the island. You can choose when to join the hustle and bustle of tourist hotspots, or totally escape and easily explore the wilder, emptier parts of the island from here.

Malona is located within easy reach of lots of great beaches, including the local ones just 5 mins away, Agathi & Haraki.  15 mins from Lindos, 45 mins to Rhodes town, and 45 mins over to the wilder areas of Monolithos or Kamiros.

A car is a necessary part of a holiday here for visiting all the island, however if you just want to just swim, eat, sleep & relax locally, then a moped will get you to our most local beaches with ease !                                                                                            

The little local village shops have everything you need, including an amazing traditional fresh cheese maker, fresh eggs, local honey. A plus is the village taverna really is worth a visit too.

If you are the kind of people who like to experience something a little different, and enjoy being in the heart of the real Greek life with all its charm, character and quirks, this is the house for you.

With the beds on the upper platforms looking down into the house, you feel that the house is much bigger than it is.

“ I LOVED my stay at Clare’s place. It’s always a pleasure to stay in someones real home-second home in this case. Instead of some bland Ikea experience, you get to spend time in a property that’s been decorated with love and character, filled with possessions that refelct the idiosyncracies of the owners.                           The Fourno house has been fabuously restored…..staying in Malona was itself a treat. It’s a real place with real people….

” Being in an actual friendly Greek village off the tourist radar was an excellent experience of the real Rhodes.
Clare has done a wonderful job of renovating the village”s old bakery.
Close proximity for driving to all of island yet off beaten track was appreciated after spending a couple days in the main city Rhodes.
Host was very responsive to any issues we had. “
