The friendly vibe of the Eleni Apartments proves you don’t have to buy a million-dollar, rock-star hideaway to enjoy the pleasures of Pefkos. Guitarist and singer Dave Gilmour is among those who have fallen for the charms of the resort, and once owned an art nouveau property there, still sometimes referred to on Rhodes as ‘the Pink Floyd mansion’.
However, for families and couples seeking pleasant, flexible, affordable accommodation in an attractive area, the Eleni Apartments provide the ideal base for a holiday to Rhodes in a peaceful location with a stunning backdrop of rocky hills.
The apartments, renowned for friendly staff, have their own lovely pool area with a poolside bar serving food and drinks throughout the day, while a tavern that serves meals opens in the evenings.
There are several beaches on your Greek island holiday to choose from in the area, and the nearest, only a five-minute walk, is the small beach of Cavos, which is popular for snorkelling and has rocky areas for relaxing as well as sunbeds.
The busier main beach, Lee Beach, is 15 minutes away, while Plakia Beach is a longer, but quieter stretch. St Thomas is a lovely spot where fishing boats moor and Arkeftas is also rocky but peaceful and attractive.
