Dream house is an old family property, in family hands since the founding of 1830. Since the property has been passed on to us, we have restored it every year and are still restoring it. The eco- friendly house is on a hidden spot at the edge of the traditional old and picturesque village of Koskinou which is 10-15 minutes driving from Rhodes Town. The villa has a very big garden with lushious vegetation, full grown fruit and nut trees, and a lovely swimming pool without chloor. There is a complete and furnitured space suited for living outside: an open outside kitchen, big dining, lounging, sleeping and relaxing space just outside the house...Read more

Additional Location Information

The villa is at the edge of the old town of Koskinou. It is located at a secret place behind a private square, and on the village side the entrance is behind large walls at a dead end street. Hardly anybody knows the beauty that is hidden behind the walls. There is a private parking at the private square. There are 2 restaurants and some snack bars in town. some supermarkets and small shops. The village is about 2 Km from the beach.
The old village of Koskinou is a tradiitonal and very colorful part of Koskinou. The houses are still authentic, and can be white or colorful, but usually painted with lime paints.


Koskinou village exists of 2 parts: the old village/town, and around it the new area. As our interest with renting, and in general, only goes out to traditional, authentic places, we only speak about the old part in this website. In the old part (which is a village of its own), the houses date back to the 17th,18th and 19th century. Like in many places in Greece about 40 years ago people started abandoning their old stone family houses, to move into modern cement buildings out of the village centers or creating new centers. The houses then became ruins and were rediscovered and bought in their original state by foreigners, Greeks from Athens and some times local Greeks. They renovated these beautiful houses and recently all kinds of committees are being formed to keep or bring back the houses in the authentic state. Typical for the village is the sala (living room) with a big stone arch (Kamarra) through the middle to make a semi separation. Another thing that is typical are the chochlakia, floors in which pebbles (found on the beach) are laid, stone by stone into a typical, magnificent mosaic floor. These floors nowadays cost a fortune to produce. Again a typical thing of the houses in Koskinou is that they have wooden sofas in the sala, high raised platforms, on which one or 2 mattresses were laid, for sleeping or where they used to drink tea. The last typical thing for Kosknou are the courtyards surrounded by high walls for total privacy and closed off by iron handmade doors with a beautiful design in it.
