The White Village Hotel sits on the upper side of Lachania, a quaint, picturesque village situated on the south-western flank of the mountains that occupy the interior of the island from where you are captivated by panoramic views that take you over lush valleys right down to the sea. A combination of the village’s picture-perfect postcard setting, remoteness and peacefulness lend Lachania a special charm all of its own.
The centre of Lachania has managed to hang on to that typical traditional village feel, with its narrow streets that are thronged with traditional houses, many of which have been lovingly restored to their former glory. A fair number of those historic dwellings were bought by foreigners, mainly Germans, but some people from Rhodes town too succumbed to the village’s natural charm and have settled here, thus creating a youthful and artistic community.
Nestled on a hillside, Lachania is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and unspoiled traditional villages of Rhodes. As a summer vacation destination it is still a relatively calm and tranquil place without the usual hustle and bustle of crowds, and you might just be lucky enough to find the beautiful sands of Lachania beach just for you to roam and enjoy without another soul in sight. 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. A summer’s dream come true!
