A traditional and quiet, slightly inland village, Lardos is 51km from Rhodes Town and only 7km west of Lindos. It offers a bit of both the old and the new worlds – it has retained some of its charming old-world character and adopted new ideas. The central
square is rather busy, and roads shoot off in several directions from the main road, as the village is situated on a major crossroads that leads to other popular villages, such as Lindos and Kiotari, among others.
Lardos is surrounded by a stunning green landscape, which is just as well because this whole area – and especially Lindos – attracts the sun’s rays during the hottest months of the year, more than in any other part of Rhodes, causing temperatures to soar to
the mid 40s. The lush vegetation in this region, therefore, is a gift from God as it helps tremendously in easing the discomfort this repressive heat causes.
