About the property

Villa in Kalathos, Nr. Lindos, Rhodes - Everyday Comforts and Internet in a Relaxed Setting

Villa Hestia is set in its own walled gardens with bedroom and pool terraces providing breathtaking views towards Haraki in the north. Situated on the hillside, this lovely villa sits on the edge of Kalathos village which has supermarkets, a chemist, shops (including a bakers), tavernas and a petrol station just a walk away. To the south the popular resort of Lindos is ten minutes away using a car or the good taxi and bus services that are available. The villa is of a high standard with tasteful furnishings in light and airy rooms. French doors from the lounge, dining area and upstairs bedrooms open onto their own terraces with sensational sea views. The swimming pool is set on a large raised terrace tastefully decked with sun loungers and outside wicker furnishings and a barbeque for al-fresco dining and cocktails are provided. The villa is a great retreat for anyone to use as a base to tour and enjoy the island.

Simply stunning!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Villa Hestia Sept 2016. This was our 4th returning trip to this particular villa. Villa Hestia is set upon a hillside over looking Kalathos town therefore you're able to enjoy the peaceful surrounding panoramic views yet still be walking distance to all the local amenities (our favourite being the local bakery!). The location is perfect for those wanting to explore the island or simply relax. I myself would highly recommend a trip into Rhodes Town or near by Lindos both only a short drive from the villa. The villa itself is spotlessly clean, well equipped and a home from home. The pool however is the icing on the cake! As a couple we have travelled to many countries staying in various villas/apartments/luxury hotels yet for the past four years we find ourselves returning to this beautiful spot. We would personally like to thank the owners (Hazel & Russell) for many wonderful holidays in their property. We are already booked to return in August 2017.

Fantastic Villa and Location

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best villas I have ever stayed in. We have stayed her twice now and would certainly recommend anyone looking for a home from home experience. The location is very quiet and peaceful with stunning views however still a short drive or walk to the shops, restaurants and transport. Some of the nicest quietest beaches can be found in Kalathos. the villa is well equipped, very very clean, very presentable and feels like home. The private pool is a bonus and must have for the climate. Air conditioned throughout the home is spacious, there are multiple balconies and terraces to relax on with shade if needed. If you are looking for a relaxing peaceful holiday I would highly recommend this villa.
