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 villa, good location between Rhodes and Lindos. A short walk to the beach and water sports. Good bus links for towns, tours and the water park. Overall a really wonderful place to stay. I would definitely recommend this villa and oasis cocktail bar just a short walk away for a family and or friends holiday.

Stunning, you will not be disappointed

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Madia Villa in July, I would say the pictures do not do this beautiful villa justice. The pool and garden area is well maintained with fantastic eating and lounging areas.

The pool itself was the largest pool we have ever had with a Villa which gave us so much fun, morning noon and night. On arrival we were met by Kosta who showed us around the villa, the pool lights were not working but explained they would be fixed on the Monday, Monday evening came and the pool lights were not working along with some surrounding garden light which were on before, I can only assume they had fused. I text Kosta re the lights and the next day he was out with a team to fix the problem. We arrived to a welcome pack of some essentials which was much appreciated along with a few cans of cold beer , which my husband really appreciated.

There was 4 adults and one 11 year old the Villa as so spacious. We would more than recommend this Villa, you will not be disappointed, the electric gate made you feel so private in the Villa. The surrounding area I would say was ok , could do with more restaurants with variety. Rhodes is a beautiful Island and visiting other pats of the Island such as Lindos is well worth doing . I would say although there is local buses available into Rhodes town and Lindos I would recommend hiring a car as the bus return is too early coming back to Kolymbia. If we return to Rhodes would definitely book your Villa again

Absolutely Stunning Villa

  • 5 of 5

Every little thing has been thought about. We didn't want for anything. The layout is superb, expertly designed.

I would recommend this place to anyone going to Rhodes, esiecualkt if have a hire car like we did. Nicely located centrally to get most places within 30 mins.

We were gutted to leave.

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!

Car: not necessary

Ideally located in the very popular resort of Kolimbia with its beautiful beaches and bays, excellent tavernas and busy cafes, perfectly situated, half way between Rhodes town and Lindos and just minutes walk to the beach, shops, cafes and tavernas,

A few minutes drive to some of the most popular beaches and surrounding attractions on Rhodes, Afandou golf club, Ladiko and Anthony Quinn beach, Tsambika beach, the beautiful village of Lindos one of the most visited places in Greece with its maize of white washed houses lined with souvenir shops, restaurants and crowned with the ancient acropolis, and just a few minutes will take you to the lush green Seven springs!

One of the largest waterparks is just a couple of minutes away in one of the many hotels which is open for use at a small fee for those not staying in the hotel.

Kolymbia is a busy resort with an abundance of restaurants and cafes plenty of souvenir shops it also offers regular bus services to the areas of Lindos and Rhodes town as well as other areas so if you don't wish to drive during your holiday !

Madia is completely private with a remote entrance the grounds are more than 4,000m2 and the pool is a hotel sized pool it is a perfect for family and friends to get away private yet close enough to walk to restaurants, bars and the beach.
