The host also did I great job of making us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. The villa was spacious and spread across two floors with areas to sit out the front and back with a mostly private balcony too. The sunbeds out front got lots of sun throughout the day and the surroundiny gardens were lovely. It was great to sit out there under the umbrella making regular trips to the fridge for a beer or wine..! The location was great for us, just a 10 minute walk from the centre of the town and away from main roads. We hired a car and there was plenty of places to park outside. Accessing the pool at the hotel across the road was easy and they were very welcoming. We spent a few days there, they've got a well stocked bar and basic poolside food. The villa had all the amenities we needed, an iron and board, good wifi, good air con, a safe and a decent shower. We thought the apartment was clean enough... yes the towels could have done with a hotter wash and the bedding could do with an upgrade but we didn't question it considering the price we paid. When you compare it to other accommodation in Lindos it really is great value... its clean and spacious plus you're not charged for air con and you pretty much have a pool. We'd definitely stay there again and hope to see Manolis in October.

The Villas were designed and built by Nico and now managed by his son. They are situated in the best spot in Pefkos. Its a quiet area but only a short stroll into the town. There are some of the best restaurants in Pefkos (Eleni, DePappa, Timmis) within a few hundred yards. The pool is spotless, warm and you don't need to get up early to get the towels out. If its a relaxing holiday you're after - this is the one.
