About Rosalie Carr

I was fortunate to be able to step back from full time work early in life and wanted to build summer and winter holiday homes that we would like to return to again and again. I had found it surprisingly hard to rent holiday properties that really work over the years and set about places which we could enjoy initially without children with friends; and now with our very young family and other families My wife and I hope that you enjoy it and merely ask you to respect and treat it as you would your own home

Rosalie Carr purchased this Villa in 2006

Why Rosalie Carr chose South Aegean

Lindos captivated me when I was 21 with its unspoilt charm and buzzing bars and restaurants hewn out of the interiors of old fishermans cottages which remain intact and give character. Rhodes is a large island and provides something for everyone. It is a long way south and has sun 300 days a year; it has every variety of watersports available; it has history for me with the legacy of the crusades and the Colussus in Rhodes old town together with the Italian occupation legacy; spas for my wife and surprises with the quality and variety of restaurants in Lindos. It is a great island to explore with hillside towns , walks; family destinations such as waterpark; a butterflly trail; golf, shopping, day trips to Turkey, scuba diving boat hire - we still have not covered it after 6 years

What makes this Villa unique

We built the villa because we had found it a challenge to find rental homes for holidays that worked with a quality 'at home' feel of being well and individually furnished and with views, plus all the modern conveniences of a hotel from wifi and plasma TV down to quality linen; but with the flexibility of a home in which to entertain family and friends rather than be restricted to a hotel room and public areas. We hope that we have achieved this in a location where we can go to local hotels to use spas and watersports and also to be able to enjoy great local restaurants or simply barbecue at home around the pool and make a cocktail , enjoy the sunset and put our own music on. It works for us and our many friends who have stayed and we hope that you enjoy it too.

                                                              Villa was stunning as was the view. It was very well equipped and the layout worked well for our family. Would just say, some of the beds were small, being just doubles and two rooms had singles. However our party were all couples and whilst my request to have the single beds of one room pushed together was kindly met, it would have been better to have beds that are actually made for this option and with bedding that fitted that option. Bathrooms worked well for our party, were beautiful and two were huge. The bathroom facilities were excellent. None en-suite but actually that was good-avoided any arguments! October weather was amazing but swimming pool was freezing. Solar heating may be an option? Outside space and facilities worked perfectly. Hardly used the lounge and didn’t need to use the dining no room but everything provided was perfect. Kitchen was very well equipped also. Laundry room too! Location was good but not as close to Lindos as I expected. Not really walking distance and the return route takes you up a VERY steep hill. Car hire essential. Overall, we had an amazing holiday and loved the villa.

                                                              Beautiful, well equipped and appointed villa with excellent facilities


                                                              We had an amazing two weeks at the villa; the accommodation was perfect for three families and the location was very good in terms of its proximity to Lindos and Pefkos. We all thoroughly enjoyed the infinity pool; using the excellent facilities and eating on the patio, overlooking the sea. Would highly recommend staying here if you're happy to take a short drive to the best beach I've ever been to (Pefkos) and restaurants that serve the most delicious food (also in Pefkos). We wanted for nothing as the villa so well equipped and all came home wanting a fridge with an ice machine.

                                                              For the whole two weeks, the villa felt like our home as we were left to it, but the agent was very easily contactable at any time.

                                                              Overall: beautiful villa, beautiful place and beautiful weather.

                                                              Perfect villa for a large group. Everything we could have needed was provided.

                                                              Rebecca H.

                                                              The villa was perfect for our large group. The views were beautiful and location was good if you are looking for a guiet holiday. The pool and outside area was perfect for spending the day at the villa with a big BBQ for dinner. The villa was large and modern inside. All bedrooms had air con and there are plenty of bathrooms that there was no queuing for the shower in the morning. Kitchen had everything we could have needed. Location of the villa was perfect of you are looking for a quiet holiday. Withing walking distance of 2 towns, however we woild recommend renting a car as we spent a lot of time in taxis as the walk to the shops was up hill and very hot in June sunshine! Would defimitely reccommend this villa for large families and groups of friends.

                                                              Villa Athena is the perfact holiday accommodation!

                                                              Giles B.

                                                              We have had the MOST fabulous stay at Villa Athena to celebrate a big birthday. The villa was full (12) and worked perfectly for us - both just to hang out in by the pool and for the main event. The Villa is well set up and the accommodation is very comfortable. Catering for that number of people was easy in the well appointed and equipped kitchen and the space provided meant that no one felt they were cramped. This is topped off by the infinity pool - which was at the perfect temperature for the time of year - and the fabulous view of Navaronne Point. The interior design is very pleasing and all is well maintained and in working order.

                                                              The local beaches are many and varied in Lindos and Pefkos and for that quick dip in the early evening the sea can be reached on foot! Furthermore the Island provided ample attractions - boat trips, walks and the Acropolis in Lindos to name but a few - and fine choice of good restaurants for those evenings and lunches when you want to chill in Lindos, Pefkos and Kiotari.

                                                              In short - we thoroughly enjoyed the Villa and I can't think of one thing that fell short of our expectations.


                                                              Joyce F.-

                                                              We had a fabulous week in Villa Athena for our summer holiday. We had been to Lindos a few years back and always said we would go back as it such as beautiful place. Our 2nd visit didn't disappoint. Blue skies, sunny days and lots of lazing by the pool or on the beach, interspersed with excessive eating and drinking in one of the many great tavernas within striking distance of the villa. The villa itself was beautiful, set high up on the hillside with incredible views out over the sea and the imposing cliffs. Everything was perfect and the owners were a pleasure to deal with - we asked lots of questions before booking and they responded to all of them with patience and good humour. Our kids are already set on going back next year. Highly recommended for anyone who likes peace and quiet with a bit of luxury thrown in.

                                                              Brilliant holiday in a wonderful villa!

                                                              We stayed a week in the villa in August with 2 families (including 4 children ranging between 6-10 yrs old). The villa was very well situated - close to Lindos town - an idyllic village with great shops and amazing restaurants - ranging from the cheap & cheerful tavernas to upmarket restaurants with amazingly diverse & delicious menus.

                                                              The villa is close to many beautiful beaches where we enjoyed fun activities such as sailing, water parks with slides, water skiing asking amongst others. We enjoyed our excursions on foot to the luxury hotel at the bottoms of the hill for a spot of shopping in the fantastic boutique, relaxing massage and cocktails by the beach.

                                                              The villa itself has an amazing infinity pool overlooking a beatiful bay and plenty of (outdoor) space for children to run around in, play football, beach tennis, etc. The villa is beautifully decorated - great attention to detail and lovely artefacts everywhere in the house. Good bathrooms with properly working showers, comfortable beds, luxury towels and linen. The kitchen is well designed and very well equipped including a brilliant fridge with ice maker. There is a big tv with DVD player and a good internet/wifi network connection. The airconditioning in every room was a real blessing as sleeping without it would have been a challenge at the height of summer. All in all we had a fantastic time and will define go back for a repeat!

We recommend hiring a car with www.holidayautos.com whicis cheap and allows all of Rhodes many attractions to be reached Distances: The villa is 1 km south of beautifully preserved Lindos which is dominated by a 2400 year old Acropolis and has great quality restaurants and bars. The village is covered by a preservation order and no cars can access its narrow cobbled streets. Rhodes is around 30 minutes north and the old town is the largest inhabited medieval town in Europe, preserved from the crusades and one day boat trips to Turkey can be taken from here. Further Details: Lindos surprises with some excellent restaurants helped in part by a strong Italian influence in the village. Broccolini run by a young Italian couple from New York has the best bruschetta we have tasted in the world; Melonos is a very special boutique hotel created as a labour of love by the owner over 10 years and the restaurants benefits from sensational views and decor and the restaurant from the same eye to detail; Archontiko in a converted old ships captains house has superb traditional Greek cuisine; there are Italian pizza and gelatto bars and even a Thai restaurant as well as the more usual Greek cuisine of which the beach restaurants do superb calamari. The are many bars to suit all tastes and 2 smaller nightclubs hideen away with a larger club 1 km north and looking back at the flood lit village of Lindos. Further afield we go to Philosophia restuarant in Pefkos 2 km south for the friendly owner and fantastic sunset views and for lunch we often go to Lindian Village for their welcoming staff, excellent lunches , 3 huge interlinked pools and the ability to hire their water sports equipment. Heading south to tip of Rhodes to see Prassonissi beach and the spectacle of driving along the sand bar with windsurfers on each side moving at the same speed - join them if you can Travelling north you pass the golf course and the old Italian spa of Kalithea before reaching Rhodes Town There is a boutique spa in Lindos itself and a number of the hotels such as the 6 star Acqua Grande in front of the villa has the sort of facilities that my wife loves.
