Kalavarda is in a flat coastal area perfect for easy rides or if you’re feeling a little more energetic you can head inland where it ranges from hilly to mountainous. It’s a great base for a mountain biking holiday. Quiet roads, cart tracks and paths crisscross the surrounding countryside, leading to quaint villages and stunning vineyards.

Rhodes enjoys fantastic Spring and Autumn weather, offering beautiful warm sunshine without being too hot. Just perfect for active holidays.


Our local bike hire guys are situated just across the road from the house. Ben and the team will guide you every step of the way. They’ll find the right bike for you, give you guidance on the best routes and probably even join you for a drink that evening in the local taverna.

A few great rides to try:

Profitis Ilias (a gruelling 798 m high!!!)

Kamiros (8 km)

The little port of Kamiros Skala (36 km)

Monastery of Agios Silas (22 km)

Butterfly valley of Petaloudes (32 km)

The wine village Embonas (60 km)

The stunning capital Rhodes Town (day ride of 75 km)

The castle of Kritinia (44 km)

Beautiful villages like Psinthos and Platania (round trips of about 50 km).
