About the property

Villa in Kalathos, near Lindos, Rhodes, Greek Islands - Peaceful Location, Perfect Base To Explore The Island

The spacious Villa Helios benefits from its own private pool and alfresco dining area. Patio doors lead out to the large terrace from the lounge area over looking the pool to the incredible views of Kalathos Bay. Villa Helios is situated in a peaceful location within easy reach of everything. Lindos, the quintessentially picture postcard Greek village is less than 5 minutes by car, the dazzling white houses climbing the slopes to a fortress topped hill at the end of a sweeping bay make Lindos a spell-binding destination, fully pedestrianised with only Donkeys as transport along its stone pebbled alleyways. The villa is of a high standard with tasteful furnishings in light and airy rooms. The villa is in a great location for anyone to use as a base to tour and enjoy the island, visiting the many towns and sandy beaches nearby or venturing further a field to the numerous ruined castles, Rhodes boasts a fascinating history with over 300 days of glorious sunshine per year!

Fabulous Holiday Destination

  • 5 of 5

Villa Helios is a perfect destination for a holiday. The villa was absolutely beautiful, extremely clean and had everything we needed for a fabulous holiday. Set in breathtaking scenery it has superb views. The pool is a great size and the patio area perfect for relaxation and bbq's. We had a fantastic holiday in July, having fun in the refreshing pool, sunbathing on the immaculate terrace and taking in the views on the balcony. The surrounding area was great to visit and the car was extremely useful. We loved being so close to Lindos with all it's cobbled streets, gift shops and rooftop restaurants. We can't recommend Villa Helios enough; it really is a fantastic place for a relaxing family holiday.

Lovely retreat

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and well maintained with a lovely garden and pool area. The local manager was very helpful and recommended a beautiful sandy beach, a short drive away (Agathi I think!).

We ate in the beautiful town of Lindos most nights and although a little pricey, there are plenty of ok restaurants.

There was a well-stocked supermarket about 5 mins drive from the villa (on the road to Lindos) with a great coffee shop next door. This was the only place we could find reliable Wifi on the island and the staff, coffee, cakes and chocolates were all great!

The villa was up on the hills with beautiful views of Kalathos bay and was a great base for exploring the rest of the island. I would certainly recommend this property for young families and those wanting a quiet get away.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a great stay at my lovely villa with views to die for. Yes Lindos is beautiful and very much a tourist area. There are many other places to visit with excellent Greek restaurants. Just a 10 minute drive takes you in to Lardos village where you will find a selection of reasonably priced typically Greek restaurants and the locals frequent for an evening meal WiFi is available at the villa with pay as you go cards or free at some local bars and tavernas it's all with satelite connection Ivor

Fantastic peaceful paradise with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Villa Helios lived up to its name drenched in sun. The sea view is just amazing there are not many places I have been that have had such a view. Although tucked away on a hill it is central for all the great tourist spots and yet still very quiet and peaceful. The villa itself is very elegant and has a lot of thoughtful touches put in by the owner which makes the stay very comfortable. I can't wait to go back soon it's a real gem!

Owner's Response: We are constantly thinking of our clients and try to update and improve things for you every year. The position of the villa does ensure the sun drench factor! Wishing you all good holidays, Ivor

Great villa

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous villa in lovely, peaceful location. Beautiful sea views and easy access to the whole of the island. Bakery in the village does the best cakes! In easy reach of many beaches but if you just want to get away from it all, and enjoy your own private villa & pool, there's really no need to travel too far.

Peace, quiet and a little bit of paradise

  • 5 of 5

I need to make a confession, we have stayed at the Helios twice and have already booked again for 2015, in fact I like it so much I even have a picture of the pool as my computer wallpaper.

Now my review....

Walk off the plane, pick up your luggage, cross the road from the terminal and find your car in the car park....a perfect way to start your holiday.

Exit the car park and drive towards Kalathos, if you don't stop en route you can be there in less than an hour.

If you want some provisions and it is getting late, stop off in Falaraki, there is a supermarket next to the Church on the main road that stays open late.(Morrisons...but not as you know it)

When you reach Kalathos turn off the main road and drive the short distance up the road to the villa, the road is narrow but easy to navigate.

On reaching the villa, take a moment to enjoy the view of the pool, then operate the electric gates and enter your own little bit of paradise.

What you do now is up to you, relax or explore or maybe a bit of both.

The villa offers the usual home comforts, so if you want to really relax, do nothing and just lie by the wonderful pool, you can.

The villa kitchen is not large but self catering is still easy with a modern hob, oven and microwave, or try the outdoor barbecue, just beware of the local cats if you do.

After a hard day sunbathing spend the evening sitting on one of the balconies with a glass or two of wine and watch the stars come out but if you do, you will never want the holiday to end.

Food shopping.

Back on the main road heading towards Lindos and Lardos you will find a supermarket which stocks most of the things you will need or go to Lardos and buy direct from the butcher, baker or fishmonger.

Eating out.

Kalathos is a bit limited.

Lindos is expensive.

Lardos is cheaper and more relaxed.

Heraki is lovely and has several good tavernas.

What to do?

There are lots of places to visit, Lindos is a short drive away but horribly busy during the day and the Acropolis is closed on a Monday.

Tsambika has an amazing beach or if your legs can take it, make the long climb to the Monastery, the views are amazing, so remember to take a camera.

Prasonisi is right at the bottom of the island and well worth a visit to see the kite and wind surfing.

Rhodes Old Town is a must, traffic is manic and parking can be difficult. Try visiting in the afternoon, the "New Town" closes after lunch and parking gets a lot easier.
