We had a fabulous stay at the Villa. The location was excellent being halfway between Lindos and Pefkos, so you have amenities on your doorstep but the advantage of peace and quiet when you want it. The house was extremely well equipped with everything we needed for our two week stay. There was great communication with the owners beforehand who answered all of my questions, and once on Rhodes we had help if we needed it from the house keepers who really could not have been more helpful! They gave us some great tips about where to go and when, so it is definitely worth having a chat with them.
We are keen walkers and explorers and were curious whether we could get by without hiring a car, and the answer is a definite yes. For-like minded folk, there is a good bus service down the east (and west) side of the island which is reasonably priced and runs fairly often plus there is a stop just past the bottom of the driveway. Lindos is a very easy 20 - 25 minute walk along a safe footpath and well worth a few visits at different times of the day. Lindos does get busy, but it is surprising how easy it is to quickly loose the crowds down some lovely little side street.
All in all, we had a very good holiday and would happily return.
Everything was as described on arrival at the lovely villa. The villa information provided by Alison, and directions received before the trip were really useful and answered all our questions. The additional pack of info in the villa also helped explain the villa and local facilities, where to visit, and good beach guides. Fabulous view of Navarone Bay and hills, from the shared balcony. We enjoyed the pool setting, with three sitting areas, beautiful gardens and unique pieces of wood. The sunbeds were really comfy. The adjacent villas were empty, and the adjoining villa owners were very quiet, so it was a peaceful stay. Alex called to see us which was nice of her to check everything was OK. The online food and drink order from Abc had arrived and had been put away before our arrival, which was so convenient. There were a few thunderstorms so I became an expert in removing the leaves from the pool! We enjoyed the small beach at Pefkos, a good FREE car park, with Lee's Bar and Flyers cafe. 5 euro per sunbed. The taxi ordered cost 10 euro to Lindos, and at the taxi stop 8 euro back. The small beach at Lindos was also nice. We had lunch and parked for free end of season (usually pay and display in any blue bay), but you have to be brave in the car, as single only passing lanes with lots of tourists! Plenty of little supermarkets in Pefkos and on the main roads everywhere, but we found the Olive garden on the way to Lardos had a really good choice. But we would have done another on line delivery, had we not been out. Abc is in Pefkos on the way to the beach. Navarone Bay is the nearest beach, by Memories hotel. Small free car park and an easy walk there, although a hill walk back! I'd take the car if your going for the day. Had a fabulous meal at Almyra in Pefkos (10% off end of season) and Ambrosia in Lindos, not cheap, but high quality food and service. Had a Chinese takeaway from Pefkos which was also very good and very cheap! We travelled through the hills, roads were good apart from the odd goat! A full day out to visit the west coast and we were surprised that at every village there were wine tasting stalls with local produce. Take your swimming and snorkeling gear as lots of little beaches. We will be back again to Rhodes, and recommend the villa and area.
