Friendly and relaxed Tholos is an ideal spot for discovering the real charm of a Rhodes holiday with The Co-operative Travel.
A very traditional village, you can expect a low-key but warm welcome from the residents, who take life at a leisurely pace which will suit you down to the ground if the first priority on your Tholos holiday is simply to unwind.
It's a great place to just wander around and take in a flavour of true Rhodes style, featuring narrow streets enclosed on either side by tall, shuttered buildings.
Tholos is fringed by a beach of mixed sand and pebbles, and the daytime sun is tempered by a constant cooling breeze which makes it just perfect for windsurfing. The clean and current-free sea will also be dotted with many people enjoying pedalo, canoe and banana boat rides. Sunbeds and parasols can be hired for a small charge, and when you get peckish, snack bars offer a quick top-me-up.
On your package holiday or all-inclusive holiday, you'll reach Tholos in about half an hour on your transfer from Rhodes airport. Your accommodation is likely to be in one of a number of small-scale hotels or apartment complexes - no major developments here!
Cycling and walking are the best ways to get around, while horse-riding is also a popular way to explore the paths into the nearby countryside. A hire car is essential if you plan to spend much of your time discovering other parts of the island.
Those looking for busy shopping and lively nightlife will need to head into Rhodes Town, although Tholos offers a handful of bars and tavernas and a disco.
If it's some Rhodes rest and relaxation you're after, then Tholos will appeal. Take the pace down several gears and give it a try. Check out the latest deals and offers on cheap, last-minute holidays from The Co-operative Travel, and your escape will be guaranteed.
