About Ann MacLean
Originally from Scotland, I have always lived a semi-nomadic life while working in hospitality and tourism, firstly in Australia, where I lived in various towns and cities over a twenty year period. later I lived in Jersey, in the Channel Islands, and most recently operated my own hotel business in the beautiful English Lake District. I launched my travel blog barehotelier in 2017 after selling my business when I started travelling fulltime, visiting Belize and Eastern Europe along the way. I first came to Salakos in May 2018 when I found an ideal studio to spend two months writing my first book, a humorous novella about my adventures in Belize, while enjoying the beautiful sunshine of Rhodes. However I quickly fell in love with unspoilt Salakos and the genuine warmth and generosity of its people, and after a short trip back to Scotland to visit my family, I decided to settle here and moved back in September 2018. I now work from home as a freelancer for several clients, including an esteemed Rhodes Luxury Holiday Villa Company, while continuing to write for my blog and am working on my next book, a humorous account of my adventures in a Rhodes traditional mountain village.
Why Ann MacLean chose Salakos
If you want a Greek Island holiday, but want to avoid the usual tourist mecca. If you want to enjoy rustic and traditional Greek village life that is still unspoiled and authentic, then Salakos is the ideal place. The studio is a traditional Greek house, with a 300 year old wood ceiling, just one of many typical traditional houses that you can see as you stroll around the narrow winding streets of the village. You will meet the colourful characters of the village who made me fall in love with Salakos as they embraced me into their community, and always welcome my friends, family and visitors with open arms. You will quickly become a part of the village and don't be surprised if you leave the square after an evening of laughter, good food and wine with an armful of local produce, generously given. You can spend your time walking the many tracks around Salakos, lazing at the nearby beaches, visiting the neighbouring mountain villages or travel further afield to the many attractions that Rhodes has to offer. Salakos is the perfect central location so that you can enjoy authentic life and tourist attractions alike. A car is a must and I can help with advice on the best hire car companies.
What makes this Studio unique
Salakos and its surrounding area are renowned for so many summer festivals. There is usually a festival being held somewhere every weekend throughout summer. Walking and cycling trails are a popular attraction. The Salakos Christmas Festival draws visitors from as far as Athens.
