The traditional village of Kalavarda is set in a rural farming area on the west coast of Rhodes. Renowned for glorious sunset views from its pebble and sand beach, Kalavarda is popular with kitesurfers due to the offshore winds. Along with beach shacks and casual al fresco tavernas, a few simple guesthouses and vacation apartments dot the area. The Kite Station, two beach tavernas and a beach bar are within a few minutes walk of the apartment. The valley of the Butterflies Nature Reserve, the ruins of Ancient Kamiros, and hiking trails to the forested Mount Profitis Ilias are all nearby. Rhodes Diagoras Airport is 16kms, or 20 minutes by car.
