About Mihalis Stavridis
Why Mihalis Stavridis chose Ialysos
The villa belongs to Rhodian family with long history which now lives in Athens.I have began managing this villa as it touched me by its unspoiled atmosphere and reminds me old times. Here are few words from the owners: Villa Pyrgo was built in 1900 and served as the summer house of a prominent Rhodian family who resided there in order to escape the heat of Rhodes Town during the summer. Villa Pyrgo has a distinct neoclassical architectural style and has been characterized as listed traditional building by Presidential Decree in 1996, ‘’of remarkable unassuming architecture with decorative elements, important for the study of architectural history in the area of Rhodes.’’ The Villa has been the family’s point of reference for 5 generations. As its members moved in the late 1800 from Rhodes mainly to Alexandria- Egypt, but also to other parts of the world, and in 1964 to Athens, it has always been a sweet excuse to reunite at the ‘’Pyrgo’’ at least once a year and catch up with friends and relatives, exchange life stories and gossip under the stars in the warmth of the Rhodian summer night, surrounded by the intoxicating fragrances of the Mediterranean jasmine, evening primrose, basil and lemon blossoms. The Villa although completely renovated has preserved its old flair and aura. Stepping in, you are immediately transferred back in time when life was relaxed and easy, when people communicated with nature when earth was close. As the owners of Villa Pyrgo, we invite you to enjoy your holidays in a blessed place by nature. Villa Pyrgo will make you want to come back and reunite again....

Stunning home, beautiful surroundings and relaxing.
we stayed here (just two of us) in late September. We had a fantastic week, we wanted to be away from others and just relax, cook, swim, read and enjoy the sunshine. We couldn't have asked for anything more.
The home is so beautifully done, lots of old original features as well as contemporary touches, just to our taste.
The hosts were very helpful and welcoming, we were greeted at the house late evening when we arrived and were very happy to see they had left fruit, wine, and juice to get us started. Although there is a supermarket almost directly over the road - which was a bonus.
All the pictures are true, it is absolutely stunning I won't go into all the lovely things in the gardens or the house as I should let you find this for yourself but it has everything you need and more.
Cab from Airport is about 16-20 euro
Cab to Old town about 10-12 euro (ish)
We hired a speedboat for the afternoon (4 hours) cost 200 euro and you could take about 6-8 people on the boat price did not change being just the 2 of us which was fine with us. again we wanted space and alone time.
We went with Georgios Maria - Look them up.
We honestly had one of the best holidays we have had in Europe, super relaxed chilled and romantic. Highly recommended.
I Would, however, point out that the house is on the main road - so you can hear the motobikes, quad bikes etc we read some reviews and so were expecting this so took music, speaker, and headphones and knowing about it made it totally fine. a place that stunning and private a bit of road noise can be tolerated.
Go, Find out for yourself.
Gorgeous House and Lovely Set-up.
Really enjoyed the old-world character of Village Pyrgos. It is very central to the beach-front side of Ialyssos and so in the busy centre of things. We made fantastic use of the very warm pool, and it was a brilliant base for exploring the Island of Rhodes generally. Would love to come back at some point!
Eine hervorragende Urlaubsadresse
Zentral gelegen, daher Rhodos und Strand in wenigen Minuten zu erreichen, aber gleichwohl sehr privat und abgeschlossen. Die Villa ist stil- und geschmackvoll eingerichtet und lädt deswegen zum erholenden Verweilen ein. Swimmingpool und Klimaanlage tragen hierzu bei.
Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und (gute) Restaurants und Bars liegen um die Ecke, was zu einem entspannten Urlaub beiträgt. Alles in allem, eine erste Adresse und herzliche Empfehlung.
Ixia –Ialyssos is ideally situated in the north western part of Rhodes it is 7 km from Rhodes Town, the airport, and main harbour. Ialysos has become a tourist destination, with several hotels and resorts located on the coast, especially in the new settlement of Ixia, situated between the towns of Ialysos and Rhodes. Being on the usually windward north-western coast of the island, it is also a noted location for wind-surfing and surf-kiting.
Built at the northern end of the island in 408 BC; the town stretches from the hills of Monte Smith all the way to the Medieval City, to Mandraki port and on to the beaches beyond – just a few miles to the east.
Rhodes is considered one of the best planned cities designed by Hippodamus, with a checkerboard road network, much of which has survived until the current day. Its unique makeup is based mainly on the extensive architectural projects constructed by the Knights of St John and later by the Italians.
Today, Rhodes town is the second most highly populated town in the Greek islands. Second only to Heraklion in Crete and in spite of its tourist development its unique identity has remained untouched. At the same time Rhodes is vibrant all year round with an intense professional and social life, with modern shopping centres, multi-cinemas, theater stages, acclaimed restaurants and even a famous Casino. Rhodes is an active multicultural society that regularly hosts International sporting and cultural events.
With 56,000 residents, nearly 50% of the island’s total population, Rhodes City is the capital of the Dodecanese and an important administrative and commercial center of the Aegean.
On the outskirts of the city and within just 6-7 km, the smaller towns of Ialyssos and Koskinou complement the suburban landscape, bringing the total population of the commuter triangle of the island, Rhodes – Ialyssos – Koskinou to 72,000.
The economic prosperity of the city resulted in the growth of one of the most viable real estate markets in the country. Both commercial and residential property have experienced steady growth over the last forty years and have sustained remarkable stability in the recent times of economic crisis in Greece.
