LEMURIA MANOR is centrally located in the very heart of Rhodes, just a few steps away from Alter Ego, a great restaurant and nightclub that serves some of the best sushi on the island, and steps away from a hustling and bustling shopping area in one of the largest squares of the ancient town. You can easily spend days wandering around the maze of ancient alleys, looking for hidden magic in every undiscovered corner, hints of a hidden history waiting to be found. Many of the winding streets lead to unique shops you could miss if you stick only to the main streets. There are restaurants, food markets, and bakeries with their own special Rhodian flare, waiting to be discovered. Lemuria Manor is right in the heart of all of this, but it is enclosed in a gated courtyard that gives its guests complete privacy and peaceful bliss. The energy of the walled city waits outside Lemuria Manor’s door, but inside, there is a private Eden, a walled garden that keeps out all the noise and movements of the energetic ancient town.
There are no cars allowed in the Old Town, to protect the integrity of the ancient place and to permit free pedestrian movement. Don’t fret if you have plenty of luggage: special licenses allow us to use our electric vehicle to transport you and your belongings to and from the manor on your arrival and departure dates. Our guests are met by a Wine Dark Sea representative at the entrance gate of the town and escorted to the manor. This villa is actually part of the ancient history of the Ancient walled town of Rhodes. Step into a time machine and experience a Medieval Knights adventure.
