“A fantastic holiday in an amazing villa!”
Reviewed 26 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We spent a great week with a party of 9 in Villa Athena. The location is great and enjoys a beautiful view over the gorgeous 'Navarone' bay with its stunning turquoise water. There is a good size pool, lovely terrace and garden - the built-in, out door BBQ got a lot of use! Luckily there were no creepy crawlies or ants around and I was particularly surprised by the lack off wasps!
The villa is lovely - incredibly spacious with air-conditioning throughout (a blessing when temperatures hit 35+degrees!) and a well equipped kitchen. The decor was very nice with a lot of attention spent on the detail. Bathrooms were spacious and modern and I particularly loved the White Company linen & towels! The villa's close proximity to Lindos town and many of the island's great attractions meant that we were never bored. Highlights included many evening meals in town (where there is a diverse choice of restaurants ranging from the typical Greek tavernas to smarter and beautiful destinations such as Melanos and Broccolini (where the food was devine!). We visited many lovely beaches (a wide range of types - some touristy with excellent water sport facilities, others deserted, some with access to lovely tavernas for a nice spot of lunch). The Kids' highlight was probably our visit to Europe's largest water park in Faliraki! Many slides - for both thrill seekers and the less adventurous types! Closer to home, mum's favourite activity was the walk down the hill to the local boutique hotel for a spot of shopping, relaxing massage topped off by a cocktail on the beach.
All in all, everyone had a great holiday and we will definitely come back for future visits!

“A perfect location for some rest and relaxation”
Reviewed 15 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The owners were very flexible with our requirements given that we only had a few days free.
The villa was spacious and clean with all of the amenities anyone would require, without making you feel like you were house sitting for somebody - a fantastic facility and real holiday home away from home.

“Return to a Beautiful Villa”
Reviewed 11 October 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We were all excited about returning to the beautiful villa Athena for a second year and we were not disappointed. The villa is exactly as described with clean, comfortable rooms, wonderfully furnished and giving a real sense of home which immediately makes you feel relaxed.
The layout of the pool, so close to the outside dining space, is perfect for manoeuvring yourself effortlessly from the morning’s sun bathing and swimming to the table for lunch in the shade. The steps down to the pool provide easy access for anyone with reduced mobility (we had octogenarians in our party who swam each day) and a popular place to sit and cool yourself in the shade from the afternoon sun. Plus, the view from here is stunning, right out over Navarone Bay, where you can watch small boats going to and fro and the lights twinkling in the evening. Cooking facilities at the villa are excellent with a well fitted kitchen and outdoor BBQ.
Further afield, Lindos and its wonderful restaurants are in easy reach by taxi, which are reasonably priced and always readily available despite us needing two or three at a time to cope with our numbers. Our favourite place was the restaurant and beach at Pefkos where we enjoyed hiring a boat and then discussing our exploits over some very good food.
Alex, the manager, was really helpful and did everything to make our stay enjoyable. Even to the point where, at the end of the holiday, one of us left an iPad behind. Alex immediately contacted us and kindly delivered it to a place several miles away where we were able to retrieve it.
Villa Athena offers something for everyone (our party’s ages ranged from mid 80’s to 6) and we would definitely recommend this beautiful place to family and friends.

“Villa Athena and the Island of Rhodes was the perfect place for a large party of people to enjoy!”
Reviewed 3 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

The Villa was very comfortable and well equipped. The interior design is very pleasing and the view fabulous - and all that before you get into the infinity pool! It was a great place to hang out as well as a fabulous venue for a birthday. Everything worked perfectly and the villa is well placed to enjoy the locality with its many attractions.in Lindos, Pefkos and beyond. The beaches are many and varied and there are some really lovely restaurants serving GOOD Greek food. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it absolutely!

“Perfect 3 Family comfortable accommodation”
Reviewed 6 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Villa Athena is very well situated (a five minute drive from Lindos) with lots of things to do nearby for all age groups. Lindos, the Acropolis, beaches, we hired a yacht for the day from NextPortAway, used water sports facilities at the Lindian Village hotel, Waterpark Wibit at Tsambika beach etc.

Each floor of the airy villa has two bedrooms and a bathroom; so three families can have their own little area which was a godsend with lots of little children using the bathroom and trying! to siesta in the afternoons.

The kitchen is very well equipped for 12 people. We loved the ice machine!

The on-site manager was very helpful and responded quickly to any queries.
