Welcome to Villa Galini, your beautiful home for your time here on Rhodes. Sitting on a tranquil hillside overlooking the sweeping bay, you are less than 3 minutes from the crystal clear waters of the Aegean Sea. Villa Galini has been designed to afford all of its’ guests the very highest standard of luxury and comfort. Our aim is to ensure you leave here feeling that you have had more than just a holiday. We have three bedrooms, each with their own individual colour palette and style, and all have stunning views of the bay and mountains. The master bedroom has a superking size bed which can be divided into 2 separate beds at your request. Bedroom 2 has a king size bed, and each of these rooms has a private balcony for you to take in the breathtaking views. Bedroom 3,with a double bed, is situated on the ground floor and has French windows which open onto the outside patio area. The indoor and outdoor living areas are fully equipped with everything you need to enjoy a perfect getaway.
just got back from 2 weeks in this fabulous villa, what can I say it was perfect, it is what I would have expected of a 5 star hotel. as good as the villa was we spent most of the time in the outside area with the spectacular views over vlicha bay. we arrived late at night not knowing what to expect, we were not disappointed, everything was ready for us and the place was spotless, even the fridge was well stocked. russ the owner has done a brilliant job of the décor and it really felt like we were staying in someone's home. the bay itself was rather quiet with only a few hotels but the beach was good and the sea was crystal clear, a hire car would be an advantage. If you are looking for a nice relaxing holiday with all the comforts of home this is the place to come.
Villa Galini is a little piece of heaven! Such a well equipped and beautiful villa and our party including a child and young baby had a wonderful time. The outside dining area with views over the pool/garden area onto Vlicha Bay made for many a fine evening BBQ. Cannot fault this place and can't wait to go back!
The villa is beautiful, its like home from home. Loved having our own private pool too. Its a 2 minute walk to beach which means the views from the villa are lovely, didn't want to leave. Will be back to stay at the villa soon :)
Brilliant Villa with excellent location and views. Equipped with everything you could need or want. Very tastefully decorated, love the outdoor 'living' area and the privacy from the neighbouring villa and the pool of course.
A very nice 'welcome pack' was provided for our arrival with the essentials before having to do a 'shop'. The meet and great from the Management Company on behalf of the owner was very professional, friendly and reassuring; nothing was too much trouble with regard our 'needs' and 'wants'. The garden is well thought out and cared for and it was lovely to sit on the seat at the bottom of the garden in the morning with a cup of tea or in the evening with a cold drink and take in the scenery and atmosphere of the bay and surrounding area and watch the world go by. Local supermarket for emergency supplies is two minutes walk down the hill or 5 minutes in the car, just before you turn to go down into the bay, for a bigger supermarket and cash machine, to stock up on groceries. The butchery department had an excellent choice of meat for the BBQ. Carrefour in Lardos handy for supplies too. It was lovely to come 'home' after exploring parts of the Island to relax in the outdoor 'living' area with music in the background or Wi-Fi entertainment on the ipad. You can either eat locally at the very friendly local taverna, hotel restaurant next door, or simply go down for a cold beer to the Rotunda bar and 'people watch' out over the bay before returning to the villa to BBQ if you choose. The owner obviously puts lots of love, care and attention to detail into the Villa, which is reflected in the obvious way guests look after it whilst on vacation. This is the ideal place for a relaxing vacation that is highly recommended. Hope to return and see what changes, if any have been made.
My family and I stayed at Villa Galini for almost all of September 2013 and had a superb holiday, thanks mainly to the villa being so wonderful. Russell, the Owner has thought of every attention to detail throughout the whole villa - you didn't want for anything and there were lovely touches everywhere, pictures, mirrors, vases, flowers. Every morning we woke up to beautiful views of the sea and would sit out on the balconies of the 2 bedrooms upstairs drinking freshly brewed coffee.
The outside area of Villa Galini was even more special. Russell has completely landscaped the area with decking and tiling around the pool, raised beds and lots of pots with planting. The dining and sitting areas were lovely - well used and light relief from the sun or when we weren't in the pool swimming or playing with the children. Then at night ...... the lighting came on all around the outside area and was very romantic as well ! There are candles everywhere outside that you can light up. It really is as all the pictures indicate and on arrival we had no negative surprises at all (as sometimes holiday villas or hotel photos aren't true to form!)
The Lindian Jewel Hotel is just a few minutes walk from the villa and great to stop and have a coffee or glass of wine. The bar food is good and so is the restaurant upstairs with the most beautiful panoramic views of the Agean Sea. There are a couple of grocery shops again, just a few minutes walk from the villa to get basics. A supermarket is only a couple of minutes in the car on the main road. There are also within 5-10 minutes walk 3 other hotels to go and have a drink.
Lindos is amazing with its winding alleyways full of great restaurants and shops rand the Acropolis an absolute 'must see' - 5 minutes drive from the villa. Would recommend M&S Cars - they pick you up from the airport, your hire car is waiting for you at the villa when you get here and they also take you back to the Airport at the end of the holiday. Lovely husband and wife team who are in Haraki (great beach village to explore). A car is needed at the villa, unless of course you just want to chill by the pool or beach which is only a couple of minutes walk.
Recommend several trips to Rodos Town - beautiful, a 45 minute drive and well worth it. Also a trip to Marmaris in Turkey which is an hour on
A great family holiday.
Firstly I would like any prospective holiday makers to know that you will not get a better service, and more friendly service than what Russ and his team deliver, they really are the best at delivering to you, the best holiday you could dream of.
We have visited Villa Galini before, and will return many times in the future, the Villa has EVERYTHING you could wish for, is fantastically decorated, with decadence, and luxury the key to your experience.
It is nice to enjoy the fabulous garden and swimming pool, with the BBQ cooking at the pool side !!, oh how I wish I was there right now.
There is a small supermarket on the beach front, but a larger supermarket 3 minutes away in the car, this has everything you need for your BBQ cooking, fresh meats, fresh fish, fresh bread and salads, with the locals always very helpful. You must go into the sea, which is approx. 300 metres away, its brilliantly refreshing and crystal clear. You have an array of 2-3 small hotels close-by, which serve excellent food, and deliver fabulous cold beers and cocktails.
The jewel in the crown is to drive approx. 5 minutes to Lindos town, park at the far-end, as you will avoid the main tourists there, the roof-top restaurants are the best I've ever dined at, it's like a roof-top town in it's own rights, the music and food aromas are exquisite, if you want a bit of home atmosphere, drive a further 5 minutes to Pefkos, some pronounce this as Pefki, this coastal town has more westernised restaurants, again with fantastic meals and happy people serving you, it also has more uk type bars, but we preferred Lindos, as when in Greece do and go where they go !!.
There is a swimming pool guy, whose English, who is extremely helpful if you want to know where places are, and the management team are always on hand if required. Then when you have been sun bathing in 40 degrees all-day, enjoying fabulous restaurants or your own BBQ (which is the best way to live) you have a fully air conditioned villa, with the bedrooms being really cool for you to enjoy your well earned sleep, another of the fantastic pluses about this Villa.
All-in-all you are in heaven !! and Russ does everything to ensure that you have the holiday of your life, you have to go back !!.
From a very please Powell family, Russ your a STAR XXX
