We have just returned from a truly fantastic week at Lindos Allure.
Tucked away in a quiet street the villa is of traditional build and has been modernised to an exceptional standard. Although a great selection shops, bars and restaurants are on your doorstep the setting is remarkably peaceful.
The friendly owners George and Chrysanthi have shown great attention to detail. They really have created a home from home with excellent fittings and stylish furniture.
From arranging our taxi transfers, to providing a fridge full of goodies on arrival they are the perfect hosts. Little touches like the illy expresso machine (with a supply of coffee) and quality bedding, towels and bathrobes add to the overall feeling of luxury.
There are two outside spaces. On the ground floor there is large patio with comfortable seating and a large fully equipped barbeque. Adjacent to this is a small outbuilding housing a top end washing machine and tumble dryer (preloaded with powder and softener).
Upstairs there is a roof terrace with lounge seating, chairs and a Jacuzzi. In the evenings this area can be soft lighted making it perfect to chill with a glass of wine and enjoy the view of the acropolis.
Both upstairs and down there is a full roof electric sun shade keeping the areas comfortable even in the heat of the day.
The villa is air-conditioned throughout and I counted five flat screen televisions where numerous English speaking channels could be accessed. I think it’s fair to say that you don’t need to pack much if you’re staying here.
During our stay the villa was cleaned every day by a lovely young girl called Elsa. She really did work incredibly hard to keep things spotless.
I chose to book the villa directly via the lindosallurevilla.com website and exchanged several emails with Chrysanthi prior to booking. The financial transaction was handled very professionally and I got a fantastic price. It was nice paying a deposit and then the balance a couple of weeks before we travelled.
I would like to send a big thank you to George, Chrysanthi and Elsa for making our holiday unforgettable.
More than recommended! Chrysanthi and George are fantastic hosts. Everything was just perfect! Great communication prior to our arrival in Lindos. Precious help to organize taxi transfers from and to Rodos. Warm welcome at Lindos Allure Villa with George waiting to help us with our bags and a fridge full of goods! Tasteful advises for local visits and restaurants. Kind attentions for us and our 5 year old daughter every day!!!!! As shared in previous reviews, the villa itself is really charming and comfortable: great design, nice furniture, top equipment in every room with great kitchen and bathrooms. The location is just perfect in a quiet small street close to beaches, all shops and fine restaurants. Thanks again Chrysanthi and George for everything! We had an outstanding stay in Lindos :-D We will definitely come back!!!
Wonderful esperience better than expected although expectations were set very high. 5 star hotel service in an exclusive ancient house, astonishly refurbished with all modern comforts close to the beach , to nightlife, restaurants . Romantic, quiet and also perfect for families. Chrisanthy and her husband George have made every effort to offer to us a memorable stay...from the assistance during reservation to the warm welcome late in the night ( with the fridge full of everything!)to homemade cakes and great tips for beaches and restaurants. Just like a dream.thank you!
My husband and I have been coming back to Lindos since we discovered and fell in love with it on our honeymoon 17 years ago. This was our third trip back. Four years ago we brought our children and they, too, fell in love with Lindos -- it's their favorite place in the world to visit. This time we were more adventurous and brought our children (now ages 11 and 14) and our parents (over 70 and 80) to see the beauty of Lindos and to experience the grace and charm of the Greek families who live here.
This year, Villa Allure was critical to the whole experience and made us love Lindos even more!
George and Chysanthi, the owners, are the most gracious and welcoming hosts you can imagine. George met our party of 7 late at night, carried all our heavy bags through the winding cobblestone alleys into our home, and spent more than an hour showing us his beautiful and well appointed villa, the home in which he was born and raised. The villa has been lovingly and artistically renovated, adding all of the modern amenities, including a state of the art kitchen and Illy espresso machine! But it is still classically Greek and features the beautiful stone art of Lindos in the veranda. I love the colors (Greek island blue in the veranda, serene whites and creams on the rooftop) and all of the special features -- clay sinks, artwork, etc.
The hosts left us very special Greek food and other treats. AMAZING! Our family could not have felt more welcomed or taken care of.
The location is exemplary - right in the heart of the village of Lindos, which has great shopping, dining and entertainment. The villa is walking distance to two beaches - the Main Beach of Lindos and St. Paul's Bay. We were in luck to even experience a Lindos traditional festival during the week of our visit, in which George and Chrysanthi's beautiful daughters danced and dressed in traditional clothes.
The housekeeper came daily and was so sweet and warm. Everything was perfect.
Thank you, George and Chrysanthi, for sharing your 5 star luxury villa experience with our family, but most importantly for sharing your culture with us -- your warmth, family spirit and traditions, food, drink, and kindness. We can't wait to return to Villa Allure!
We cannot recommend this property highly enough. The owner, George and his family were extremely welcoming and having a shop in the village were always nearby if needed. We were there for my husband's birthday and George knowing this brought a cake for us and the kids. The fridge is full on arrival with complementary food and drink and a cleaner (Elsa - who was lovely) comes daily so the place is always tidy and clean.
The standard of accommodation is truly superb and the pictures shown are what you get.
Great location in the village being slightly outside the bustle but also minutes from shopping, bars and restaurants.
My only regret is we didn't book for longer.
Thanks George and family and Elsa for making our stay so special and memorable.

I have just stayed here with 6 friends for my 50th birthday.
I couldn't recommend this villa more. I had a fantastic time, due to the location of the villa being a few minutes walk from all the bars and restaurants, as well George and Chrysanthe's hospitality. The villa is positioned close to everything but also in a residential area so quiet at night. It is luxurious and very well presented and decorated with a daily cleaning service providing fresh bed linen, towels and beach towels.
George and Chrysanthe made us feel very welcome by meeting us near Lindos reception upon arrival and taking our luggage to the villa. They had provided a stocked fridge of food, wine and water which was free.
The entrance/terrace area was great for hanging out with my friends and barbecuing whereas the upstairs decking area with the jacuzzi was more intimate and romantic.
The bedrooms are spacious and the bathrooms come stocked with toiletries.
I highly recommend this villa and am definitely returning!
Staying at Lindos allure villa was a wonderful expérience for all of us (family of 4 with 2 very young kids) from the beginning to the end. The villa itself is amazingly charming : great taste for all the furniture and deco, top equipment in every room (great kitchen and bathrooms), a lot of different spaces (2 outside terraces) and extremly comfortable (great beds !!!!). The location is also perfect, really close to an adorable little beach and to all shops and fine restaurants. Chrysanti and George were so very friendly with all the family and all was done to make our stay a good expérience (food and drinks waiting for us in the fridge on day 1 : never saw that before in any airbnb : so nice !!!!). Thanks to both of them because this was from far the best place we ever stayed in in our whole life ;))) Can't wait to come back one day. We of course really recommend for all travelers who want to live a special experience in Lindos (which we totally loved also ;)
