Set in the Aegean Sea, not far from the Turkish coast, Rhodes is perhaps Greece's most Ottoman-influenced island. You will notice a distinctly more eastern flavour in everything from architecture to cuisine here, something that sets a Rhodes luxury holiday apart from a trip to its more westerly cousins.
The largest of all the Dodecanese islands, Rhodes has a long and complex history that is evident in the medieval sites still present on many of it's town's streets, and ancient ruins such as the Acropolis of Lindos, which are well worth a visit.
Yet away from the man-made wonders, there is a host of breath-taking natural beauty to be encountered. From inviting beaches and blue seas to ambling hillsides covered in thick pine forests.
