Our home

The 65 sq meter Fourno house, consists of one large traditional high ceiling 'camera' (archway) room, and is an open plan house. Its neighbor the Big House is basically the same but has a large 35 sq/m upper floor and large balcony area too. Ideal for family and friend groups traveling together, both houses offer everything you could need for a great holiday.
What an opportunity to stay in a real Greek village house, these houses have been renovated to a high standard using traditional and Eco friendly techniques and materials. The houses have that wonderful aroma of Cypress wood beams, and a rustic Greek charm that cannot be experienced on your regular type of holiday. The joy is in the independence from the mainstream tourism areas of the island, you can choose when to join the hustle and bustle of other visitors to the island, or totally escape and explore the wilder, emptier parts of the island, happy in the knowledge that when you arrive back to your holiday home, everything you could need will be waiting for you.
A car is an important part of a holiday here!
If you are the kind of people who like to experience something a little different, and enjoy being in the heart of the real Greece with all its charm and character, these are the houses for you.

Who we are

  1. Hi, I am Clare Lee, the owner and renovator of the two houses here. Our family, Dimitri, our son Ioannis (4) and I live in Rhodes all year round, closer to town, in another traditional house that we also renovated. I am from England and came here to live permanently in 2004, so that I could follow my dream to renovate traditional houses with due care to the environment, traditional methods of building and style. Apart from being a Mum, and looking after the running of the houses, I am also an independent Yoga teacher. Dimitri has his own shop in town with Handcrafted Metal design work of his own.
    We are wanting to go to Amsterdam for 1 week/10days during the 1st 3 weeks in August this summer and are open to non simulataneous exchange as the houses are our 2nd homes. We could also be interested in a London, and Venice trip this year.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

These 1895 original old village stone houses, restored with environmental materials are set in a quiet, traditional corner of the village of Malona. Just 5 minutes drive from the beautiful golden beach of Agathi, and the pretty harbour of Haraki, the village of Malona has alot to offer in both the summer and the winter. It is an active traditional agricultural village, surrounded by orange, mandarin and olive groves which keep the locals busy all year around. Malona is a small village with little narrow streets, and retains its Greek traditional pace of life. A place where the men of the village sit out in the evenings in the local cafes, and the women sit together in the streets with the children. Many here speak some English after time spent working in America, and you will find them mostly friendly. A 15 minute drive finds you in the beautiful village of Lindos for romantic evenings out, or 5 minutes in the other direction, in the heart of Rhodes 2nd town Archangelos.
