LEMURIA MANOR ON THE BEAUTIFUL ISLAND OF RHODES: A UNIQUE AND GLORIOUS TRAVEL EXPERIENCE FOR A LIFETIME OF MEMORIES
Meant to be preserved forever. To take a walk through the old city is to see a city frozen in time, a peak into a past that is perfectly preserved. The old city looks exactly as it once did for the knights who once roamed the streets. It is an incredible living museum, with sights from an old world that today are only seen in cinema.
Strolling down the ancient alleyways and avenues invokes the feeling that you’re suddenly on the set of Game of Thrones…only every stone, every crevice, everything you can see, or touch is authentic. This is the ancient Old Town of Rhodes. This is where the Colossus of Rhodes once stood, guarding the entrance to the island. This is where the knights Templar and Knights Hospitaliers rested and ruled before moving on to fight in the Crusades, forever leaving their mark on the island. This is where history was made.
The ancient city is a vibrant and fun place to enjoy incredible sights and smells, a place where visitors can make lasting memories. There are shops and markets on every street, harkening back to ancient bazaars that sell an eclectic assortment of souvenirs you would not find anywhere else in the world; leather goods of the finest quality, colored glass lamps in an intricate Turkish style, and gold jewelry of some of the finest quality that can all be found on the streets of the old city. Rhodes is home to more restaurants than some of the biggest cities, all within walking distance of Lemuria Manor. The old town offers every taste in food, ranging from traditional Greek food rich in local flavor, to sushi and nouvelle cuisine.
LEMURIA MANOR is centrally located in the very heart of Rhodes, just a few steps away from Alter Ego, a great restaurant and nightclub that serves some of the best sushi on the island, and steps away from a hustling and bustling shopping area in one of the largest squares of the ancient town. You can easily spend days wandering around the maze of ancient alleys, looking for hidden magic in every undiscovered corner, hints of a hidden history waiting to be found. Many of the winding streets lead to unique shops you could miss if you stick only to the main streets. There are restaurants, food markets, and bakeries with their own special Rhodian flare, waiting to be discovered. Lemuria Manor is right in the heart of all of this, but it is enclosed in a gated courtyard that gives its guests complete privacy and peaceful bliss. The energy of the walled city waits outside Lemuria Manor’s door, but inside, there is a private Eden, a walled garden that keeps out all the noise and movements of the energetic ancient town.
There are no cars allowed in the Old Town, to protect the integrity of the ancient place and to permit free pedestrian movement. Don’t fret if you have plenty of luggage: special licenses allow us to use our electric vehicle to transport you and your belongings to and from the manor on your arrival and departure dates. Our guests are met by a Wine Dark Sea representative at the entrance gate of the town and escorted to the manor. This villa is actually part of the ancient history of the Ancient walled town of Rhodes. Step into a time machine and experience a Medieval Knights adventure.
LEMURIA MANOR isn’t just centrally located for city exploration it is easy to access all of Rhodes’ beautiful sights: besides residing within one of the most beautiful and unique walled cities of the world, the manor is close to some of Rhodes’ (and Greece’s) most beautiful beaches. If visitors choose to rent a car to explore the island outside of the Old City’s walls, a mere 15 minutes’ drive brings explorers to the gorgeous Kalythea Beach. Those who are chasing the balance between a day in the sun and a day learning new facets of history should take a 45 minute drive to the world famous Lindos Beach and the Lindos Acropolis. Lindos is one of Greece’s most beautiful archeological sites, mixing Greek, Roman, Byzantine and Medieval structures in one place. The views from the town are stupendous, and the beaches that adjoin it are some of the most gorgeous in the world. The town of Lindos looks the part of the quintessential Greek town, complete with white washed homes and shops that give Santorini a run for its money. All these sites are within an hour drive of LEMURIA MANOR. The possibilities are endless, as Rhodes can offer you the perfect blend of history and luxury, a day at the beach coupled with a day at the museum. You can explore the island’s vast sights or relax inside the ancient walled city. You can stroll down ancient cobblestoned paths and explore or go down to the ancient port and charter one of many available boat tours around the island and its beautiful, sun kissed beaches. Explore the street of the Templars and see the Knights Hoteliers’ headquarters, or visit Anthony Quinn Beach and enjoy a a sun kissed day on the water.
Just outside the walled Old City lies a beautiful port and marina that hosts enormous cruise ships, small charter boats and touring boats alike. There are restaurants, cafes and bars around the marina and port, where one can sit and relax while watching the people stroll around the beautiful port, all this within walking distance of Lemuria Manner. Tours on the boats vary from simply 10 euros per person for a 90-minute boat ride, to several hundred for a charter. No matter the accommodations, there is certainly a charter that is perfect for you and your family.
Renting a car is easy as well. One can call for a car rental and a driver will pick you up at the outside wall meeting point. From there you are taken to the rental office to pick up your car, and you will be ready to explore the island to your heart’s content. Our staff will help you with contacting and securing your rental car.
Parking is a challenge the closer you come to the gates by the Old Town, but patience will pay off with a coveted spot just outside the city gates, and our closest entrance gate, the Gate of St. John, just next to the St. Francis Church.
