Details of the Cottage

The 65 sq meter Fourno house, consists of one large traditional high ceiling 'camera' (archway) room, and is an open plan house. Its neighbour 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 travelling 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 wondeful 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 independance 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.
Malona is located in easy reach of lots of great beaches, 15 mins from Lindos, 40 mins to Rhodes town, and 45 mins over to the wilder areas of Monolithos which we particulalry love. A car is an imprtant 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.

Fourno House is located in Malona, Rhodes

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 10 minutes in the other direction, in Archangelos and Stegna beach .
