Cultural Hub: Home to the Music School of Rhodes 🎵

In 1996, Afantou became the new home for the Music School of Rhodes, relocating from Therme due to housing challenges. This cultural institution enriches the community with musical education, adding a melodic touch to the village's identity.

Whether you're drawn to the sun-kissed beaches, the golfing greens, or the cultural vibrancy, Afantou invites you to experience the harmony of tradition and modern leisure.
