My wife and I have just returned from a stay at the Belle Helene Aparthotel in Ixia Rhodes. Although the accommodation is close to a main road the majority of the rooms are quiet and peaceful. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment which had plenty of space for two people, the apartments are spotless and are well furnished. The owners Nikos and Irmgard were very friendly and couldn't do enough for us and treated us like part of their family. Most weeks during the season Nikos has a BBQ and the food never seems to stop coming. Don't be afraid to call on Nikos or Irmgards local knowledge they are a great source of information. Ixia is a great place to base yourself if you want to explore the island either by car or the local buses as they run past the front door. There are ample amounts of restaurants and tavernas within walking distance as we stayed for two weeks and didn't need to eat in the same one twice. So to sum up our holiday,it was very relaxing with good food and great company. We will go back again without any hesitation. Thanks to Nikos ,Irmgard Pasha, Ivan and Roxy.
