About Aristotelis Iraklidis
Traveler , love the beauty of the Greek islands and the immense blue of Aegean sea. I live in Rhodes with my family.
Aristotelis Iraklidis purchased this Villa in 2009
Why Aristotelis Iraklidis chose Halki
I was fascinated from the an spoiled island of Halki , the well done construction of the Villas and the ideal place of the location , and of course the unique view of the endless blue of the Aegean Sea and the many surrounding little islands. It's located right on the small beach of Ftenaia.Halki is an “anti-stress” destination where bibliophiles, poets, writers, spiritually motivated individuals, religious walkers, romantic couples, families with kids or just people that want to get away from “it all”, swim in crystal clear waters, take a deep breath of sea breeze, sit by the port, hear and watch the fishing boats leave or return, hear the church bells inviting them to Liturgy, observe the night sky with the countless stars, and the glowing moon reflected in the sea.
What makes this Villa unique
This unspoiled, unique, colorful and undiscovered by mass tourism fisher-island is lately seeing a steady flow of visitors who come for its relaxation value. The climate of Halki is very dry and therefore very pleasant for vacationing. Most commercial services and accommodation options are within 200m of the harbor. The streets of the village are paved with stones, and the village justifiably holds a leading position in the list with the most picturesque villages of the Greek islands.......... Greece's best kept secret

Right on the beach
Transport: Many Boats arrive and leave daily from or to Rhodes (1 hour) and three times a week from Athens and Crete. One mini bus, one taxi and water taxis are available at reasonable prices (rates per person). The island is situated some 6 km (4 miles) west of the island of Rhodes in the Dodecanese Archipelago. With an area of 28 km2 (11 sq miles) and a population of a few hundred people in the summer, it is one of the smallest inhabited islands not only in the Aegean but in all of Greece.
20 meters to a beach cafe - restaurant . 300 meters from the harbor the only main port village
The impressive Emborio (or Nimborio) is the only inhabited village of the island. A quiet fishing port village amphitheatrically built around the harbor with traditional island-style mansions of extreme beauty. Most of them are recently restored to their former glory. Made out of stone with colored shutters and white frames or entirely painted in bright colors, they signify the old prosperity of the island. Even those that are still in a state of disrepair – yet slowly being renovated – overgrown with weeds and decrepit, contribute to astonish the visitor. Car traffic is prohibited once the ferries have come and gone, so the waterside always enjoys a relaxing, vehicle-free setting.
Most commercial services and accommodation options are within 200m of the harbor. The streets of the village are paved with stones . The village of Emborio and takes on the role of a market square: there, people gather to talk, drink coffee, play tavli (backgammon) or have a drink at one of the café-bars and pastry shops, or eat fresh fish and local specialties at one of the traditional tavernas enjoying the magnificent view to Halki’s colorful mansions and listening to the sound of the wind flowing through the masts of the sailboats moored at Halki’s small marina. Strangely enough inside this couple of hundreds of square meters you can find everything that you could possibly need at one of the supermarkets, local shops, pharmacy, and kiosk or at the traditional bakery.
Cars or motorcycles are banned in the center after 19.00 unless there is a boat coming or leaving. During August more traffic is to be seen caused by the many boats that are coming or leaving. There is not much of nightlife. Nevertheless the café-bars play, at a lower volume, international or Greek hits till the early morning hours. There are also two small sound isolated air-conditioned “clubs” where the younger ones transform the heat (or the alcohol) of the day into dancing sweat.
