Kalymnos is a mountainous resort and car and scooter hire is recommended. These are easily available from nearby resorts of Myrties and Masouri. The many garden steps, balconies and ledges may be dangerous for young children or anyone with limited mobility. There is no wheelchair access. There is a parking space opposite (which belongs to the neighbour but you are welcome to use it if they are away) or you can park in the road nearby.
The outside areas of the villa are a special feature.
John & Indi were born in the UK and the Fiji Islands respectively. They are ex-teachers who enjoy a sense of adventure. In 2005 they sailed their 43 foot yacht from Croatia to Turkey, eventually settling to yachting life in the Dodecanese and the beautiful, unspoilt island of Kalymnos. They would love to hear from you with any queries or further information that you require. If we are in the islands when you are in residence we would be delighted to give you an experience of yachting around the island as our guests.
John Mansfield purchased this villa in 2014
We love the island and particularly the views and way of life on this part of the island. Kalymnos is full of very friendly people who go out of their way to make everyone comfortable. There is nothing better than Greek hospitality and we have taken the islanders to our hearts with many new adopted family members. We bought the villa in order to spend as much time as possible in this beautiful island without being dependent upon the yacht.
Villa Pharos has some of the best views on the whole island and with ample balconies and terraces to make best use of them. The villa has access to some of the best beaches on the island and we adore the sight of the yachts and island ferries making passage below the villa. Nearby there are swimming pools, beaches and the secluded island of Telendos just a short ferry ride across the bay.
Villa Pharos- what a great place! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful villa. We were impressed by it's well kept and beautifully clean condition. Everything functioned well in the villa and even in big wind storms it was a solid haven up on the hillside. The views are tremendous from each of the different terraces and especially from the large window in the master bedroom. It was also convenient, although a bit of a good workout to walk into Myrties and Massouri for coffee or dinner. As climbers, we enjoyed the location close to the action but still far enough away to be quiet and a nice getaway. Paul was a super help with getting familiar with the villa, suggesting restaurants, and on one incidence when we locked ourselves out, he was there within 5 minutes! I would love to keep this gem of a villa a secret for our own vacations but that wouldn't really be fair to all the people who may get a chance to enjoy it!
Thank you to John and team for a fantastic stay in Kalymnos. John's villa manager picked us up from airport after our flight was delayed and took us to the property. The villa was beautiful and very well maintained, and was a lovely base for our climbing trip (six of us stayed here - there was a sofa bed and two spare mattresses). I have never woken up to a better view and the property was a lovely place to have evening meals and only a 10 minute walk from the restaurants of Myrties/Massouri. Would stay here again if I returned.
The property is beautiful, well maintained and everything works perfectly. The location is great, views amazing and just close enough to masouri. If you are there for climbing the location can't be beat. The beds are comfortable and the a/c works well. Also, Paul was extremely helpful in every way. It would be hard to find a property better than this one.
We received a warm wellcome and had a wonderful stay.
Villa Pharos è un pò come entrare a casa tua: c'è tutto ciò di cui hai bisogno. La si percepisce come una casa vissuta in perfetta armonia dai proprietari e dalle persone che vi hanno soggiornato.
La vista sull'isola di Telendos, i tramonti sul mar Egeo, accompagnati dal suono delle onde del mare, ne fanno un luogo davvero speciale.
L'accoglienza è stata ottima e la persona che gestisce la casa sull'isola è stata sempre molto disponibile ed efficiente. Quella che sembrava essere una scocciatura inizialmente - e cioè la mancanza di acqua potabile - si è rivelata una cosa facilmente ovviabile: si acquistano bottiglie di acqua e si riempie la tanica di acqua potabile (è ovviamente consigliabile una macchina o un motorino).
Siamo appena tornati ma abbiamo già consigliato ad amici e parenti Villa Pharos e, in generale, un soggiorno a Kalymnos, isola non molto turistica ma preziosa per le sue bellezze naturalistiche e per la sua semplicità; la gente che vi abita è straordinaria.
Bel soggiorno che rimane nel cuore!
Si potrebbe rimanere ore a cercare di spiegarvi la bellezza del tramonto rosso fuoco che si spegne dietro l'isola di Telendos mentre con i tuoi amici ti siedi a una tavola imbandita e assapori una ricca grigliata di pescato fresco e semplicemente speri che quel momento non finisca mai. Ma siccome non mi piace essere prolisso auguro semplice a chiunque di poter godere di tutto questo e consiglio a chiunque il soggiorno a villa Pharos, non rimarrete delusi ne dalla struttura di altissima qualità ne dal servizio offerto da Paol, il villa manager super disponibile.
Grazie milleJonh di tutto spero di poter godere di nuovo di questo spettacolo.
You could stay hours trying to explain the beauty of fiery red sunset that goes out behind the island of Telendos with friends while you sit at a dinner table and savor a rich grilled fresh fish and simply hope that the time will not end never. But since I do not like to be long-winded hope easy for anyone to be able to enjoy all this and recommend it to anyone staying in the villa Pharos , you will not be disappointed by the high quality structure it from the service offered by Paol , the super villa manager available .
ThanksJonh a lot for everything I hope to enjoy again of this show .
