Villa Helios in Lardos, very close to Lindos, is a luxury spacious villa with its own (8.5m X 4m) private pool. Villa Helios can accommodate up to 6 adults + two children (one child in a cot up to approximately 3 years old and another child on a sofa bed up to approximately 12 years old). On arriving at the villa, you feel like you are in the middle of the countryside but you are just 7 minutes walk from Lardos village. The ground floor is made up of an open plan living room with 3 sofas, a full kitchen and dining area. Also on the ground floor is the huge master bedroom with its large double bed, additional sofa bed, cot and en-suite bathroom. Upstairs, there are two twin bedrooms, one of which leads onto a very large terrace with an outside seating area and table ideal for those summer evenings or to take in the view of the mountains and surrounding countryside. On the first floor there is a fully fitted bathroom with a bath and overhead shower, toilet and washbasin. Outside, Villa Helios offers a private pool with sun loungers, a terrace with a stone table for dining and another terrace with table and chairs for outdoor living. The garden is a very large area with Mediterranean plants and a purpose built BBQ for your enjoyment. The garden is completely enclosed and has a great grassy area for children to play. There is also a dedicated private parking area. The Villa is completely detached and not part of a development. It therefore offers total privacy and the secure walled garden allows children to play safely.

We had a brilliant holiday. The description of the house and the location is very accurate. The house was super clean and had everything we needed. Peter and Karen provided great support and were available whenever we needed help, advice or suggestions. We walked into the village every night for lovely food and drink and a very relaxed holiday atmosphere. We had terrific trips especially to Lindos, St. Paul's Bay and a sailing day trip on the Yin Yang at Nextportaway.com. Unforgettable. Thanks to everyone who made our trip so special. I would recommend this property unequivocally.
We had a wonderful holiday in Villa Helios in Lardos. The villa was bright, clean and spacious. We were given a great welcome on our arrival and this continued throughout our stay. It was a short walk into the village of Lardos, which although small, had plenty of restaurants and a convenient taxi rank. We had a great holiday!
Lovely villa and just a short walk in to the village of Lardos which has nice restaurants and Memories cocktail bar. Excellent range of shops including a fishmonger, butcher, baker as well as two supermarkets. Beautifully kept villa, pool and garden. We arrived late in the evening and were met by Peter and Karen who made us most welcome. The welcome pack provided was great as we had all we needed for breakfast in the morning without rushing out to the supermarket. We did not have a hire car but getting out and about was not a problem as there was a taxi rank in the village as well as the local buses. We had a brilliant day out on the sailing boat - Yin Yang firstname.lastname@example.org which operates out of Lindos. We often struggle to find a villa which is private yet near to amenities and easy for sightseeing without a car but this villa ticked all the boxes. Would certainly recommend to family and friends. Peter and Karen with their local knowledge was an added bonus. A great holiday!
I cannot overstate how much we loved this villa and its location on our recent summer holiday. We have in recent years searched for villas with privacy and that are not overlooked and so have often found ourselves in the middle of nowhere and had to drive to get to anything but this villa combines privacy and luxury with very local amenities.
We were warmly greeted by Karen and Peter who look after the property locally (and who are more than happy to help with anything you need) and were shown round the villa. We had a welcome pack (2 x wine, milk, bread, butter, ice, water, cheese, ham etc.) plus the kitchen was well stocked with herbs, seasonings, and cleaning equipment and chemicals etc. The pool area was lovely and we really liked the stepped part of the pool that we could sit in and read a book whilst staying cool. The grounds are really well cared for with lovely greenery and plants and plenty of parking space. Inside the Master bedroom is especially lovely but all bedrooms are nice and lots of wardrobes and drawers.
The local village of Lardos is a 5 minute walk or a 10 minute very lazy meander away and has everything you could need. There are two mini supermarkets, 2 butchers, a bakers, 2 cocktail bars a wine bar, half a dozen excellent restaurants, a taxi rank, bus stop and a couple of souvenir shops. On our last night there was a village greek night with free food and dancing and music.
We rented a car from George cars which was very reasonable and explored the island leisurely on what were very good roads. Lindos was a bit commercialised but worth a visit and we would recommend an early evening visit as the streets are quite narrow and too many tourists make it unbearable. Rhodes old town was lovely as was the Seven Springs and the beaches of Antony Quinn and Ladiko Bays. The bus service from Lardos is also very good (and air conditioned!) and we also recommend Dimittri the taxi driver in the village.
Rhodes was a lovely mix of traditional but had also moved with the times and was very modern in some aspects. We would definitely recommend the villa, the village and Rhodes as a whole. Restaurants we would recommend are Ostria in Kalathos, Philosophia in Pefkos and Valantinas and Roulas in Lardos. We loved this villa and hope you do too.
If you looking the perfect environment, quiet location and short walk to fish or meat shops, restaurants, supermarkets than this place for you. This Villa with it's own pool is absolutely wonderful, well-equipped with barbecue place, spacious and luxurious, we had the most enjoyable stay. Very convenient for two families. We were with five children, 2, 4, 7, 9 and 13 year old. The location is fantastic, with the beach and famous places minutes away, near village Lardos. In the surrounding villages the local restaurants were perfect serving fantastic greek food.
The property was very clean, environment maintained, clean pool. Special thanks for Peter and Karen, they are very helpful and nice people. They take care for everything, and help us, when it was need (was truly needed). Thanks for a wonderful holiday !!!
Fabulous holiday beautiful villa everything you could possibly need lots of outdoor space to sit in the sun and relax or a shaded spot to read. Can't fault the villa. Greeted by Peter and Karen made us feel very welcome nothing too much trouble fridge full of all sorts of goodies beer wine water eggs great start we considered them our friends lardos only a short walk to the village nice restaurants and memories cocktails were a hit with our family taxi to lindos or pefkos easy to organise so all in all excellent family holiday. Thankyou
Villa Helios is in a excellent position just outside the lively Greek village of Lardos in the Lindos area. Just a seven minutes stroll away you will find some great restaurants and tavernas, bars, supermarkets, bakery, butchers, fishmongers, doctor and pharmacy. Lardos has it's own taxi rank with a price list so you can easily travel to Lindos or Pefkos for a night out if you choose not to drive.
This spacious villa is less than 10 minutes drive from the iconic village of Lindos with its whitewashed buildings and small winding streets full of interesting gift shops and atmospheric restaurants and bars. Lardos beach is just a couple of minutes drive away with it's water sports facilities, sun beds, umbrellas and beach tavernas.
Villa Helios is close to all the amenities and is situated in a beautiful rural location surrounded by olive trees and Greek countryside. It is very private and secluded in the garden and pool area, offering a wonderful sanctuary when you can relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. The Villa is completely detached offering total seclusion. There are beautiful views from all of the rooms. Villa Helios therefore offers the best of both worlds - a wonderful peaceful location but within walking distance of a great village.
When people travel to the South of Rhodes, they often think of Lindos; and of course, Lindos is only minutes away by car from this 3 bedroom villa. Lardos, however, is a real Greek Village full of great atmosphere where you can watch the Greek way of life unfolding in front of you. There is a surprising variety of really good restaurants. There are three Greek Tavernas, an Italian Pizzeria, and a Mediterranean Cuisine establishment, so plenty to chose from. As well as great restaurants, there is also a selection of bars and cafes where you can while away the hours enjoying time with the friendly locals. As well as the village, Lardos has a Blue Flag beach with extensive watersports facilities. The villa is also near Pefkos beach whic has a Blue Flag rating.
Villa Helios is well placed for travelling further south on the island of Rhodes. The first thing that you will pass, travelling south is a mini golf course which is great fun for families and friends alike. Then, carrying on, you will pass Glystra beach which is a lovely sandy bay with a snack bar ideal for spending the day. Right at the southern tip of the island you will find Prasonissi which is famous for the two seas meeting - the Aegean and the Mediterranean seas which is quite a sight to witness. This is also where many kite surfers and windsurfers gather from all over the world. They can put on quite a show if you are lucky!
Then, going north of Villa Helios, the main road leads you all the way to Rhodes town where you will find the ancient walled city which is a must see for anyone visiting the island. All along this Eastern coast there are also fantastic beaches to spend the day on.
Villa Helios, Lardos, is therefore in a fantastic position for a holiday that can be as peaceful or active as you would like it to be!
