Sotiros is a gorgeous little village offering views over the Aegean with less than 100 houses, a handful of places to stay, a couple of little churches and a single taverna. There's no beach but there is one just 5 minutes away on the west coast.

Gennadi

Gennadi is a village just south of Lindos on the south east coast of Rhodes. It's a working village as well as a tourist destination so it does feel a bit different to the usual tourist resorts with a more authentic Greek way of life shining through.
