Around the Island: Rhodes is one of the largest Greek islands and boasts an average of 300 days of sunshine a year - it is the sunniest spot in Europe!

As well as providing the ideal centre for sun-seeking holiday makers the island provides a wealth of alternative activities. Breathtaking scenery, historic sites, bustling nightlife and traditional island life provide the perfect holiday for all tastes.

Some of the cleanest sand and shingle beaches in the Aegean ring the island. You can visit quiet and secluded spots. Alternatively, after a short journey along the coast road you will find busy resorts such as Faliraki or Kiotari. Here you can enjoy watersports or beachside tavernas and bars.

Rhodes Town: Rhodes Town divides neatly into new and old quarters. The Old Town is the best preserved medieval fortress town in Europe, with countless narrow cobbled streets and magnificent historic buildings. Once outside these walls, the coming and going of yachts in Mandraki harbour and the bustling cosmopolitan attractions of the New Town provide an interesting contrast.

About Karen and David Foster

Karen and David Foster - We realised our dream when we purchased our villa and eagerly await the time when we can retire here. We both teach: Karen in Special Need School and David as a driving instructor. We grew up in East Devon and moved to Pembrokeshire, West Wales to work. We intended to stay just one year but fell in love with the area and are still here 25 years later. We have 2 children and numerous pets.

Karen and David Foster purchased this villa in 2009

Why Karen and David Foster chose Europe

The villa is situated on the outskirts of a small mountain village so we can regularly walk up into the hills. However a 5 minute drive and we are in the thriving heart of Lindos where I can shop to my heart's content.

What makes this villa unique

The villa feels spacious and typically Mediterranean - we know we are on holiday.

I love the terrace at the top of the villa - this is where I enjoy my morning coffee and it is a must for dinner whilst we watch the sun setting over the mountains.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Hestia. The villa was excellent, spacious, clean, of a high standard and just right for us. We loved the sun roof with great views and used it on many evenings. The pool was also lovely and clean (cleaned three times a week), the location quiet yet convenient.

Villa Hestia

  • 4 of 5

We spent two weeks at the villa in August 2010, we were impresed with the standard of the villa it met all our expectations. The pool was excellent and the personnel who looked after the property were very helpfull as regards local knowledge. The local village was quiet,we enjoyed having a drink in the taverners most evenings they have not seen the merits in catering for the villa complex yet, basic but quaint.

We would recommend the villa to anyone looking for a quiet and peaceful location to relax for their hoildays, no noise on a night,excellent facility.

The villa is situated on the edge of the small, traditional mountain village of Pylona (a 5 minute drive from Lindos) in a former olive grove dating back to at least the 19th century. In Pylona you will find 4 small cafes / tavernas, frequented by the locals and 2 small village stores. In the 1990s an ancient Mycenaean Cemetery was discovered on the edge of Pylona.

Just a 2 minute drive from the village you will find a supermarket that will cater for all of your holiday requirements.

The expansive, shingle Vliha Beach is just a 5 minute drive from Villa Hestia.

Alternatively, a 10 minute drive will take you to the glorious sandy beach of Glystra.

At both beaches there is plenty of parking at the edge of the beaches. Even in the height of summer the beaches provides plenty of space and does not feel crowded.

Lindos was one of the three ancient states of Rhodes, with the acropolis dominating the hill overlooking the village. It is now one of the prettiest and most photographed villages in Greece, boasting some of the hottest summer temperatures.

Other Activities: jet ski and water sports
