About Louise (or Natalia in the office)

Hello! My name is Louise and I have been in Kos for some 28 years! My husband, Nikos and our 3 children Athena almost 18, Alexandra 13 and little Aris 8 years old,live ourselves at Villa Athena. I was actually born in Coventry and had a house in Datchet, Berkshire for many years.I came to Kos to work as a rep for Thomson Holidays.It was then in 1987 I met Nikos & we married 10yrs later! As well as Villa Athena we run our own tourist office businesses (WWW.THEOKRITOS TRAVEL) in the resort of TINGAKI & LAMBI - KOS TOWN arranging all the trips and tours,car hire and give out general information to tourists of all nationalities visiting the island of Kos. We look forward to hearing from you, we can answer all your questions without a doubt.You can find out lots of info and see a plan of Tingaki and map of Kos on our website.

Louise (or Natalia in the office) purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Louise (or Natalia in the office) chose Greece

We actually bought the land ourselves in 2002 to build our house and we designed everything ourselves at Villa Athena. Athena is our eldest daughter! It was after we bought the land we decided we could share our love of Tingaki with others staying with us! It was at this point we got plans to build seperate apartments as well as our own house.We love the sea, and looking out with views of the sea summer and winter couldn't be better! All the apartments are named after the Greek Gods, so there's a plaque outside each front door with the names: Aphrodite,Artemis, Hermes, Asklepios and Poseidon. We are in a prime location -just 80m in front of us is the sea and one of the best beaches on the island-Tingaki!

It was the best decision we ever made and keeps us very busy indeed!

What makes this apartment unique

Our 5 individual apartments at Villa Athena were designed Greek style but with a few special personal touches...more spacious than a studio and more comfortable of course ! Being right next to the sea and the beach is a real bonus! There's a swimming pool (our friends with a few apartments have their own pool )that our guests use and it's just 50m in front of us. Many guests' priority on holiday is to stay somewhere peaceful and relaxing...we offer just that! As we live there too we are always around to help in any situation. We make it as comfortable and relaxing as we possibly can and have had families with children (and children with special needs) as well as guests in wheel chairs. Our youngest guest 3months old to our eldest 83-we will always be there to help you!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Once again have had a fabulous time staying at Villa Athena...it's now our 6th year and our 11th time staying with Louise and Nikos! Nothing is ever too much for them and their wonderful children help us with our Greek!!! The apartments are kept spotlessly clean - maid service is at least 5-6 times a week. We really enjoy Niko's BBQ and always look forward to that. We have met some lovely people over the years and can well recommend it to others.

My family and I (we have 3 young children) have just returned from staying at Villa Athena in Tingaki. I have to say we had the BEST holiday ever!The apartment was much more than expected,so clean and the owners were just great.They supplied us with everything we needed, even play mates for our 3 children! We will definately be back and will tell other families too.

We will not stay anywhere else now we know Villa Athena! We enjoy the peacefulness and always feel relaxed staying here.Great accommodation for a great price!

Families with teenage children also find us to be in a great location - not too far from anywhere which helps in giving teenage children the freedom they sometimes need!

All the locals here are renowned for their helpfulness and friendliness.Young and mature couples seem to want to return to stay with us every year, as they enjoy the comfort in our spacious apartments for a very affordable price!

We have a lovely BBQ area and a pergola with monastery type table and seating for up to 22 persons. If there's time we invite guests to our BBQ every now and again! Nikos is a great host and everyone talks about his BBQ's! I am sure that's why guests return to stay too! Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Towels and bed linen are all provided. Maid service is 5 days a week and towels are changed every 2/3 days and linen is changed every 4/5 days. Table cloths and tea towels are changed whenever necessary.

Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5

As per previous reviews, Villa Athena Apartments are in a great location, only minutes from a superb beach and arguably the best bar / restaurant in Tingaki, King-Size Beach Bar.

The apartment was spotlessly clean and comfortable and had everything needed for a perfect relaxing holiday.

Louise and Nick, the owners were also helpful and friendly and made us feel very welcome, we're already looking forward to booking again next year.

Tip - We hired bicycles for a day from the hire shop near King-Size bar that only cost 5 Euros each, in hindsight at such a low cost, it would have been good to have hired them for the full week.

Couldn't dream of anything better!

  • 5 of 5

The villa is in the most perfect location for relaxing family holiday - away from crowd but only few minutes walk everywhere you need.

The owner Louise and her family really made an impact - are more than friendly, helpful and polite. She not just helped to find another hotel for first two days, provided with all info about transfer from airport, offered to take us from bus stop, but even left some snacks for kids in the room in that other hotel upon our late arrival! Not to mention beautiful presents for girls upon check out..

Very cosy clean and pretty room with well equipped kitchen, private charming terrace with sea view - that's the beauty of staying in Villa Athena. We were also very welcome in swimming pool at neighbourhood hotel only 3 minutes by walk. Would definitely come back to Tingaki and wouldn't stay elsewhere. Thank you, Louise!

Just as described.

  • 5 of 5

Just spent 7 nights at Villa Athena, apt Afrodite – yes that’s how they spell it. The apartment is just as described and is kept spotlessly clean. Louise and Nikos are fabulous landlords and really couldn’t have been more helpful and knowledgeable about Kos. It is a 15 min stroll into Tingaki – can’t believe it took 1 reviewer 30 mins – where there are some really good restaurants. We ate out all the time and never had a bad meal. We hired bikes, which is a brilliant way to explore the area, especially as it is so flat. We would have no hesitation in recommending Villa Athena to friends.

What a Gem

  • 5 of 5

I have no hesitation in recommending Villa Athena for a wonderful relaxing holiday. The apartments are spacious and very well equipped. The front facing apartments all have lovely sea views with the beach being a 2 minute walk along a private road. If you sit quietly on your patio you can hear the evening coming to life with the sounds of nature. Louise and Nico were extremely helpful and friendly and Louise couldn't do enough for us, nothing was too much trouble. We did 3 trips with Theokritos travel which were exceptionally good. It took us about 10 minutes to walk into Tingaki where we found numerous good quality reasonably priced restaurants, we were there for 10 days, ate out every day and never had a bad meal. It was one of the most relaxing and peaceful holidays were have every had. Louise and Nico certainly go the extra mile and put their guest first.

Kindest host

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a one-week holiday at Villa Athena. The apartments are just as shown in the pictures, spotlessly clean and nice! The garden is lovely and there is free use of the neighbour's swimming pool, just 5 mins away. It takes about 10 minutes to get to the closest beach (without any amenities, just white sand and pine trees), 20 minutes to get to the closest restaurant (Kingsize with a lovely playground), minimarket (J&M) and the beach with showers and chaise-longues. The walk into Tingaki centre is pretty straightforward and it takes about 30 mins. Owners Louise and Nikos have been very helpful, Louise picked us up from the bus stop and welcomed us with groceries in the fridge, drove me to the supermarket, gave us kind advice and even some plant roots from their garden for us to try and grow back home! Louise's very cute son even got my daughter a good-bye gift, it was such a nice gesture, we were really moved!
