Kalathos is the very next village after Massari and about 45km from Rhodes Town. It belongs to the Municipality of Lindos and is a convenient 6km away from this very popular ancient village and acropolis.
The village has managed to retain its charm and appeal throughout the ages, and its location high up on the hillsides, means that the inhabitants can enjoy an uninterrupted, splendid view of the aquamarine sea in the distance. The weather in this area is sunny
and dry – even in the winter time – and is said to benefit people with certain chest ailments. For instance, some years ago, tuberculosis sufferers made special trips to this village in the hopes of ridding themselves of the disease. Its ideal location and
weather, combined with the peaceful atmosphere, makes it a haven for elderly people looking for a healthy and quiet environment to spend the remainder of their lives in.
