About the property

Villa in Gennadi, Nr. Lindos, Rhodes, Greek Islands - Traditional Village Location, 10 Minute Walk To The Beach

Registered with the Greek Tourism Board (EOT) licence no: 1476K100A0391101

Villa Alexander is one of only 4 beautifully designed modern villas that make up the small, exclusive development of Gennadi Hills, located on the edge of the traditional, year round village of Gennadi on the South East coast. Ideally situated in peaceful surroundings of olive groves and open countryside yet just a few minutes stroll to the village where there is a good range of facilities including supermarkets, a bakery, green-grocery, ATM, motor cycle hire and a number of bars and tavernas. A short walk takes you to one of the island's coveted blue flag beaches and beach front tavernas. A little further along the beach is a modern beach bar serving good food, drink and cocktails and providing free sunbeds. A pharmacy and medical centre are located between the village and beach.

The villa's split level, air-conditioned ground floor comprises a fully fitted kitchen including a dishwasher, lounge, separate dining area and bathroom. The two en-suite bedrooms on the first floor have their own private sea view balconies and air-conditioning. Outside there is a south facing private pool, garden, 2 large terrace areas for sunbathing and alfresco dining, a traditional Greek BBQ and ample off road parking.

The location would ideally suit families and couples of all ages.

About Janet Biles

We live and work near Plymouth in South West England after relocating from along the coast in Dorset where our five grown up children and four grandchildren live.

We started holidaying in Rhodes in 2002 and like many visitors we fell in love with the beauty of the island, the history and the hospitality of Rhodians.

In 2007 we decided to look at buying a holiday home and potential retirement property.

Janet Biles purchased this villa in 2008

Why Janet Biles chose Gennadi

There was never any question that Rhodes was where we wanted to buy and having got to know the Island well and looking at properties in various locations we decided that the traditional village of Gennadi, away from the busy tourist areas yet has everything you could want within walking distance, was the ideal setting.

It was in late 2008, after much searching, we looked at the concrete shells that were to become the Gennadi Hills properties. Our minds were made up when we saw the fantastic views over the sea, the equally beautiful mountains along the coast above Pefkos and the wonderful landscape towards the southern tip of the island. The design is in keeping with the traditional look of the village yet with a modern feel.

What makes this villa unique

The villa was completed in June 2009 and we spent a busy few weeks furnishing and equipping it to ensure our guests had everything they needed for a relaxing holiday. The villa is named after Derek’s late father, as fittingly Alexander is a prominent name in Greek history.

We have enjoyed holidays with our parents, children and grandchildren at the villa. We love our time in Gennadi and enjoy nothing more than being able to sit outside until late at night in the peaceful surroundings and then waking up to the glorious views in the morning. Due to work commitments we can only visit a few times a year at present, however it gives us a great deal of pleasure when people have enjoyed their holidays at Villa Alexander and say that they have had a peaceful, relaxing, and fulfilling time.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Evelina, July 2011 - We enjoyed our holidays immensely! It is our fourth summer of villa holidays and we all agree this was the best so far. The house is fantastic, the location wonderful and the beach one of the best we've been to despite it being a pebble one. Having seen the busy tourist resorts we were happy to have chosen your villa in such an idyllic location that allowed us to escape the crowds and truly relax. Everything in the house seems to have been made for the convenience of the guests and it reminded us again why we chose villa holidays in the first place. There is a good selection of DVDs and Playstation games which helped entertain the kids during those hottest hours and we all enjoyed having our dinner on the terrace overlooking the pool and listening to cicadas or at the local taverna. We'll definitely consider going back! Thank you!

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa and the surrounding space were beautifully maintained. The villa itself was very comfortable and well equipped. It is very peaceful and it is easy just to laze around all day, but if you fancy a cocktail or need supplies these are on your doorstep. There are plenty of places to visit (Lindos a must). I recommend Sposa Beach bar for it's laid back ambience and excellent food. Next time 2 weeks , 1 is not enough!!

A super villa in a very friendly town.

  • 5 of 5

The villa is beautiful. It is uncluttered, easy to find what you need, and child friendly. The town is very friendly and we really enjoyed eating and drinking at the restaurants, tavernas and cafes. The bakery, greengrocer and supermarket kept us supplied with anything else we needed. Gennadi is a very convenient base for exploring the beaches and sights in the south of the island - Glystra Beach, Prasonisi, Lindos and Monolithos among them.

Beautiful Villa in a great location

  • 4 of 5

Can't fault the villa, ideal for a family stay. Very well equipped and thoughtfully planned. Pool was great. The location is really good, nice and quite, yet within easy reach of a few tavernas and bars. Well located for the local beach and to visit other parts of the island. I'd recommend Glystra beach for families.

Quality villa in a peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit to Villa Alexander and we were glad we came back. Previous reviews say it all, this is a clean well presented and spacious villa which has everything you might need. Our children joined us for a few days and the accommodation was very adequate for 6 adults, they were impressed with their first Greek villa holiday.

We like this area because it is well off the Rhodes beaten track in a fairly typical Greek village and the setting of the villa is great. Although Gennadi is small it has all the amenities you could want. The supermarket sells everything, try their pork chops on the barbecue, and the local bakery was impossible to walk past without seeing what they had in the way of freshly baked cakes. The local tavernas give you a range of different settings. We always had top quality meals wherever we went but have to say that Mamas Kitchen does the best pizzas we have had in a long time.

The beach is pebbly but only a short walk and gives you a choice of tavernas to relax over lunch before using their free (if you buy a meal) sun beds. All the prices are very reasonable and the food quality, as usual, outstanding.

Gennadi is ideal for seeing the south of the island, obviously you need a car, go to Prassonsi to see the kite surfers followed by a fish lunch at the Plimiri Beach taverna (choose your own fish) or over to Apolakkia via the very quiet mountain road and busts Kastro Monolithos. The is a great restaurant serving fantastic goat stew at Profyllia up in the mountains, which is served by one of the best roads on the island.

So, lots to do and see here, or as we did for most of the time, just chill out in a great place to be.
