The island of Rhodes is the fourth largest island in Greece and has 300 days of sunshine a year. It is an ideal tourist destination and one of the most attractive holiday regions in Greece. For Greek culture enthusiasts, Rhodes is an important market for second homes. Many people dream of moving here permanently and enjoying the Mediterranean way of life.
The Italian artist Piero Dorazio (1927-2005), whose villa is currently on sale, was one of the best known residents of Rhodes. Dorazio worked primarily in Rome, Paris and the United States, his art works were exhibited twice at the documenta in Kassel. Since 1974, he worked and lived alternately in Umbria and on Rhodes. Dorazio is regarded as the pioneer of abstract art in Italy and considered to be one of the most important Italian artists of the second half of the 20th century. The fascinating play of light on the island of Rhodes inspired him in his work. He focused mainly on the primary colours, which he combined using various geometric forms.
The beautiful double storey villa has a living area of 612 m², with the property measuring some 12,000 m². It has ten rooms and five bathrooms, and thus plenty of space for welcoming guests. The villa offers stunning views of St. Nicolas Bay and is located close to the picturesque village of Lindos, a town with a population of almost 4,000 and a popular tourist attraction. Travellers are attracted in particular to the Acropolis of Lindos and the many restaurants, bars and clubs.
