About Catherine Panteli

We are a family from Rhodes and we built the property ourselves, originally to live full time, we built the stables and the house to fit with our lifestyle the area is perfect, close enough to Rhodes and half way to Lindos, the area is peaceful yet close to all the amenities, beach side tavernas, bars and souvenir shops.

However we have found as our girls have grown that we are spending more time in the town and at the riding stables on the west coast, however as with everything in life things change as your family grows, we decided to rent our beautiful home for holidays! and I am positive the location the surroundings and the relaxation staying here brings will give you a memorable holiday!

What makes this chalet unique

Built with our family in mind it is a private property surrounded by natural stone walls, a quiet location and yet just 5 minutes to the beach, restaurants, bars and busy shops we built our bungalow to enjoy our family weekends and holidays many fun filled days with our children, friends and family, swimming eating bbq's and relaxing entertaining by our lovely pool. Surrounded by pine scented trees which blow softly in the evening breeze it is our perfect place and I am sure you will agree once you visit!!

Great holiday in a lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday in this villa in October 2016. The villa has been well built and nicely finished off to a high standard. It was very comfortable and there was plenty of space for 5 adults to stay. Cleaners came in mid week and changed the towels and washed the floors.There is only one bathroom, but there is a separate toilet in the pool area, so it wasn't a problem. The grounds are extensive with a very large swimming pool (we were in it several times a day), a children's play area, jacuzzi, outdoor seating area and large enclosed BBQ area with table and benches. Kolympia beach is nearby. It's a lovely beach and the sea temperature was perfect in October for swimming. The villa is also close enough to Rhodes city, LIndos etc for visits. We hired a car which was very useful as it would have been quite a long walk to the nearest large supermarket. We can definitely recommend this property

Lovely Villa with fantastic pool

  • 4 of 5

My family & I stayed here in July 2016. The Weather was fabulous every day.

The villa is lovely & spacious & very clean. The pool is fantastic & it really is a hotel sized pool. Every room had air con which was much needed when we stayed.

The grounds are kept beautiful & very well maintained.

There is no maid service for the period of your stay, so towels, bedding etc do not get washed unless you wash them yourself. (there is a washing machine in the villa).

We did find shopping difficult as no supermarkets nearby or ones we travelled to by car, sold any salad or fresh meat all, so we couldn't have a bbq, which was disappointing. The only items we could buy were tins, pasta, breakfast etc.

An information folder would have been helpful advising where the best places were for food shopping & for any helpful advice should anything go wrong in the villa. The electric had tripped out in the kitchen & we had to call the owner out . My husband would have sorted it out but we didn't know there was a fuse board by the front gate to the villa as well as one inside the villa.

A Hire car is definitely recommended to get around & see other areas. We drove to Lindos town (half an hour by car) which is really pretty with loads of great shops & places to eat along little cobbled streets. There are a few places to eat in Kolymbia but not a lot to chose from.

We had a lovely relaxing holiday at villa Madia & would recommend it.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much Sarah for your feedback its very much appreciated, I do apologies regarding the maid service, I believe the maid didn’t turn up and Madia wasn’t aware, this is not normal we do have maid service once weekly. I am a little baffled regarding the barbecue we have a built in barbecue and full outside dining area, the nearest supermarket is just a 3 minutes walk opposite and although it is a tourist supermarket it does stock essentials, the larger supermarkets with a butchers counter, fresh fruit and vegetables as well as all provisions, is just 15 minutes walk or 5 minutes in a taxi/car at the cross roads of Kolimbia. I do understand the guests need for an information booklet and will definitely provide one, thank you it’s a very good point. Madia when she greets her guests always spends time to show you around and give you full details and advise on the area, however, when you first arrive it’s a lot to take in so a book would be a great help! We do provide Kosta (the owners) number so that in the event of anything going wrong or you need any help! Things do sometimes happen and for that reason we provide the contact number. Very best wishes and thank you for choosing Madia for your vacation!

Lovely Relaxing Stay at Outstanding Villa Madia!

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely relaxing week at Villa Madia. The villa was immaculate, and very spacious and tastefully decorated. The gardens were pretty and very well maintained. The villa feels very private and safe. The pool is outstanding!

TIP: Include the cost of a hire car in your budget so that you can use Villa Madia as a base for exploring the pretty parts of Rhodes.

TIP: The owner can arrange a driver to pick you up from the airport and I would recommend this because the villa is hard to locate if you're not local to Kolymbia (there are no door numbers on the street!)

LOCATION

This was our first visit to Kolymbia, Rhodes. Unfortunately the town centre is dead all day until about 9 - 10pm because most of the resort hotels are all-inclusive. This means that there's zero atmosphere in bars and restaurants until late at night. When we stopped by a bar during the day for refreshments, we were very often the only people there - and this was at the end of August! There were also very few restaurants to choose from in the evening. Overall Kolymbia feels like a bit of a ghost town and I don't know how the local bars and restaurants can survive with competition from the all-inclusive hotels.

GETTING AROUND

We punctuated our stay with a couple of day trips using the local bus service (the nearest bus stop to Villa Madia is about 7 minute walk). The nearest supermarket ('Zeus' in the town centre) is about a 15 - 20 minute walk. There was a small hotel souvenir shop about 3 minutes walk from the villa where you can buy ice-cream, drinks and crisps. Given the location and limitations of Kolymbia, I felt that a hire car would have made our life a lot easier and would have allowed us to explore some of the prettier parts of Rhodes as well as seek out nicer restaurants elsewhere - however, we had unfortunately not budgeted for a hire car.

SECURITY ALARM

We somehow managed to disturb the settings of the security alarm at the villa so that it beeped every 5 seconds! We couldn't find any instructions to deal with this problem so had to contact the owner to come fix it.

TOURIST INFO AT VILLA MADIA

It would have been good if there was a folder containing tourist attraction information within Villa Madia. We had to rely on the rather temperamental wi-fi in the villa to find out about the local attractions. In any case a hire car is required to visit the attractions.

I have rated Villa Madia 4/5 because it is necessary to hire a car to make the most of a stay here.
