Why Marina Zawaher chose South Rhodes
Since the village has been known for years as the meeting point of artists from all over Europe, the aim of the White Village architects was to orchestrate a complex array of interior and exterior spaces, which would harmonically combine tradition with minimalist and modern facilities. While giving an intense attention to detail through decorating ideas, the property laid out on 1500 m², adapted unique elements from the village and enriched them through innovative inspirations. Therefore, the design intention was to seamlessly blend the structure of the White Village into the texture of the existing traditional village.

This unique part of the island has an abundance of such beautiful and unexplored places, such as lush valleys, beautiful villages and isolated chapels dedicated to the saints and scenery that will take your breath away.
MAGANO MUSEUM, the production of olive oil, located in the Village of Lachania.
LINDOS VILLAGE, one of the most popular destinations on the island and very well known for its particular style of architecture called “Arhontiko” as well as the majestic “Acropolis of Lindos”, is located only 20 km east from Lachania and is easily accessible by car.
PRASONISI, on the very edge of the island, the very famous paradise for windsurfers and kite surfers during summer time, is located only 15 min drive south from the White Village.
Over the years, Prasonisi has become the number one windsurfing spot and meeting point in Europe. Prasonisi is the Greek word for "Green Island" and consists of two bays, the eastern and the western, in the middle of which rests a magnificent sandy beach which by separating these, makes the landscape look absolutely fantastic.
The eastern side of Prasonisi is ideal for swimming, while you can take your first steps in windsurfing. The west side remains mostly wavy and that is why it is considered appropriate and suitable for experienced and professional surfers. Organised surf stations exist and provide full services.
The beautiful MONASTERY of Panagia Skiadeni (Virgin Mary the “Shade casting”), is located only 20 min drive southwest from Lachania.The hill is called Skiadi (“skiadi” = shady place). The monastery was founded around 1200, but the buildings that exist today date back to the 18th century, except for the chapel in the churchyard, which dates back to 1640. On the walls of the monastery of Panagia Skiadeni ancient marbles are embedded. Archaeologists believe that they come from a temple of Artemis, which pre-existed in that location. During the Lent period, the icon of Panagia Skiadeni is paraded in a procession that goes through all the villages of Rhodes. On 8th September there is a great feast in the monastery, where, besides the Rhodians, many people from Chalki also come flocking.
MONOLITHOS, a picturesque and historical village located 35 min southwest of Lachania, is guarded by the famous and unique Monolithos Castle dated in 1476. Monolithos is unique being the only place in Rhodes where visitors can enjoy the breathtaking views of the beautiful landscape which combines mountains, hillsides, and beaches, pine forests, historic monasteries scattered throughout the forests, a historical castle and fortress associated with fascinating history and legends. Monolithos’ name was derived from the huge isolated rock (‘mono’ – one, ‘lithos’ – rock) that the Castle is built on, watching over the Southern Aegean waters since the 15th century, A.D.
