Sitting on the hillside overlooking the beautiful Vlycha Bay and within easy walking distance of the beach, Villa Verna provides a wonderful base for your holiday in Rhodes! This wonderful villa also provides the perfect base if you are planning to have your wedding ceremony, or you are guests attending a wedding, in the beautiful and historic village of Lindos. Located Just a short distance from the village, and only a short car journey away, this luxurious villa has three bedrooms and a beautiful outside dining area with a true infinity swimming pool and relaxing sunbeds. Villa Verna can also be rented with the attached Villa Eos, next door, to accommodate up to 12 adults - perfect for your family and friends to join you in your celebrations! The sea views from Villa Verna's infinity pool as the water appears to sink into the ocean are truly spectacular! Also being just minutes walk from the beach, and a 3 minute drive to Lindos village, Villa Verna is in a fantastic position from which to enjoy your holiday in Rhodes!
On entering this luxury villa, you are immediately struck by the light and space with its open plan environment and huge windows overlooking those wonderful sea views. The living area has comfortable sofas for sitting and a plasma screen satellite TV. There is full WiFi satellite internet connection throughout the villa. Next to the living area you will find the dining area with modern dining table and chairs. Then leading on from the dining area is the modern fully equipped kitchen with breakfast bar and stools.
Patio doors open up onto the outside BBQ dining area and infinity pool. With Rhodes having over 300 days of sunshine annually, this great outdoor area will no doubt be where you will be spending a lot of your time!
Heading down the marble staircase from the living area, the lower ground floor is where the three bedrooms and bathrooms are located. Each bedroom has patio doors leading out onto the lawned garden area. The Master Bedroom has an ensuite bathroom with double sinks and bath. The middle double bedroom has a fully equipped bathroom with shower unit opposite and the bedroom with bunk beds also has its own ensuite bathroom with shower. All bedrooms have fitted wardrobes and air conditioning. There is also a small utility room where the washing machine is kept on the ground floor.
Villa Verna is a spacious modern well equipped villa with a fabulous outside dining area and true infinity pool that looks like it is dropping into the ocean beyond! Enjoy this magical experience with us!
Villa Verna did not disappoint! It looked terrific on the website and was just so in reality. 3 bedrooms each with their own bath/shower room and direct access to the garden, air con throughout, well equipped kitchen (dishwasher included!) and, important for large groups, 4 toilets! Outside there is ample space for relaxing by the infinity pool and a large built-in BBQ and dining area. Plenty of sun shade too. The (very) green lawn was a bonus and a nice area for playing games or lounging in the sun.
We appreciated the well stocked fridge on arrival which included beer & wine. There is a an excellent supermarket 5 minutes drive away towards Kalathos which has all you need for food and other household items. The coffee bar next door to the supermarket, Zucchero, has excellent pastries, cakes & ice cream and should not be missed.
We were very happy with the cleanliness of the villa on arrival and during the 2 week stay we had villa cleaned and bed linen & white towels changed twice which was nice.
Not detracting from the 5 star rating but a few points to be noted
- the WIFI works pretty well in living area upstairs and the bedroom directly below the lounge area but it did not work in the master bedroom (perhaps a booster could be installed?)
- the TV has two satellite connections, 1 German & 1Arabic, the Arabic channels have BBC World News and a couple of channels showing English language films but it's very limited for English speakers
- the infinity pool effectively incorporates a mini waterfall and the pump runs all day from around 5 am till 11 pm - the sound of the water flow is evident in the master bedroom - this was not a problem for us but may disturb some people
- it would be useful if the name of the Villa could be identified near the front door, we had family staying nearby and they struggled to fine the villa, as did we when we first arrived!
- there were a few issues that required maintenance intervention (flat batteries in a couple of air con remote controls & blown light bulbs) but these were sorted out the same day.
All in all we were very happy with Villa Verna and would be pleased to return again one day.
PS: favourite restaurants were Valantina's in Lardos, Philosphia in Pefkos and Konstatin next to Atrium Palace hotel, Kalathos
The attention to detail for this Villa is very good with everything you could have wanted available,together with a welcome pack left for us on arrival for us.
Any issues and the maintenance team were there within 10 mins,however there were few.
They even provided a Cake mixer to us as my daughter wanted to make me a Birthday Cake.
The views are fabulous and we would return without doubt to this Villa,we were here for 10 days.
Thankyou very much everybody.
Regards Mr.and Mrs Cook
My husband, 3 children and I have just returned from quite honestly one of the most wonderful holidays I have ever had the good fortune to go on! Villa Verna is extremely comfortable and is so well placed for trips to the beach (literally 5 min walk max to Vlicha beach) and to beautiful Lindos (approx 5 min drive). We could not have been happier. A big thank you to Nicola at Lindos Destiny for her help in finding the perfect villa for us and for all her general help and advice. A truly fantastic time had by all. 10/10
We stayed at Villa Verna with three children and had the most amazing time! The villa was very nicely laid out and it is great to have three bathrooms and four toilets. It was very clean and in absolutely spotless condition.
The welcome basket was a nice touch and much appreciated, especially as we arrived later in the evening (shame, we did not finish the bottle of wine.. ;-)).
The pool was a real winner especially with the children and allowed us to take a break from the beach, which would get too hot at times, and just relax in the comfort of the villa. Wifi worked well, just not downstairs in the bedrooms, but hey...
The outdoor BBQ area was fab (even though we hardly used it being very lazy on the cooking part...). There is even a sandwich toaster for those kids who like to take a break from Gyros with pitta. If I wanted to find one thing that could possibly be improved it is the quality of the frying pans. They have seen their best days and things tend to stick to them. Maybe one decent, slightly heavier non-stick pan would be nice.
The area is great and very laid back and quiet compared to the area around Rhodes town. Lindos can get busy during the day and if you like to see the Acropolis in Lindos, I would recommend to do it first thing in the morning before it gets hot and busy! Plenty of lovely restaurants in the area and if you cannot be bothered with going into Lindos try the Rotunda at the Lindos Jewel Hotel down by the beach - lovely staff and very nice Aubergine salad! we took take-away a couple of times and ate at the villa, which was nice for lunch!
Very nice beach in Tsambika and of course the bays in Lindos and Anthony Quinn Bay are beautiful. Nothing is very far away, but it does help to have a rental car. We also went to the Water Park in Faliraki, which shows some signs of age but it was a blast for the children and strangely enough not too busy even on a Saturday.
All in all we had a fantastic stay and a lot of it was down to the perfect accommodation. I am happy we chose to stay at Villa Verna instead of a hotel and would definitely recommend you and hopefully stay again!
What a gorgeous place! The Villa was perfect for our family - 3 great bedrooms and 3 baths; lots of water pressure, convenient open layout, kitchen well equipped and the outdoor space is excellent. Proximity to the grocery store and bakery made everything easy. We hope to go back one day.
We,four adults,have seven wonderful days in Villa Verna.Everything ,there was everything!Even four toilets,perfect kitchen,peaceful bedrooms,swimming-pool,etx.Only drawback,we didn´t find Greece-tv canals!The owner was so kind,too!The Villa Verna was clean,just for us.We just relax!Yours Leila Lähteenmäki-Myllynpää
Villa Verna is in a fantastic position for your holiday in Rhodes! Just minutes walk from the lovely Vlycha Bay with its crystal clear water, watersports facilities and restaurants for dining. It is also just minutes drive from the charming village of Lindos with its iconic sugar cube buildings, cobbled streets, ancient acropolis, plethora of restaurants, bars, shops and 4 beaches. Lindos is the jewel of Rhodes and Villa Verna is just outside, making its location ideal.
On a more practical side, there is a relatively large well stocked supermarket just 2 minutes drive from the villa providing all your essentials for villa living.
Rhodes island offers many great sightseeing opportunities and days out for the family. The famous Waterpark in Faliraki (the largest in Europe) is around 25 minutes North of Villa Verna. A day at the Waterpark is great fun and highly recommended for people with children of all ages. Further North, around 45 minutes from the Villa is Rhodes Town which again warrants a visit for all. The Old Town is the oldest inhabited walled city in the world and is filled with historical sites to see such as The Grand Master's Palace and Museum. It is also a beautiful place just to amble around for the day browsing at all the lovely craft shops, having lunch in one of the many tavernas and perhaps enjoying a roof top drink on one of the many terraces while taking in the spectacular city views.
Heading South from Lindos, you will discover Pefkos village with it's wonderful range of restaurants and bars as well as it's long fully equipped sandy beach. Then as you extend your journey Southwards, the landscape changes and you enter into a much less commercial, natural environment. Never ending swathes of unspoilt beaches, quiet picturesque villages such as Lahania and then you will finally reach the amazing peninsular of Prassonissi where both the Aegean and Mediterranean Seas meet over a sand bar. It is quite a spectacular site with one side being rough and wavy and the other smooth and calm. Prassonissi is also a world famous spot for windsurfers and kitesurfers, so during your visit you are also very likely to be able to spectate in a free show!
These are just some of the activities that are offered on the sunshine island of Rhodes - there are many more as you will discover when you are here and Villa Verna in Lindos is just the right base from which to enjoy it all from!
