The village grew out of an area of Rhodes which was originally the summer agricultural and fishing base for people living further inland, used in summer when the heat and length of the working days made travelling home (on foot or by donkey) impractical.
In the early 1980's the first tourists were attracted here due to it being so close (3 Km) to the beautifully picturesque village of Lindos. It wasn't just tourists either - Pink Floyd's David Gilmour owned a mansion here which is currently being renovated.
Also known locally as 'Pefki', the village name means 'Pine Trees', which grow readily in this part of Rhodes.
Today Pefkos is a popular holiday destination in it's own right, thanks to it's perfect combination of clean beaches (there are more than four to choose from), just the right number of restaurants, tavernas and bars, combined with the friendliest of Greek hosts you could hope to meet. Our resort has a very high percentage of returning visitors; when you've been here once you realise that this is what your hard earned holiday should be.
