Whether you are looking for an active holiday or for some relaxation both can be enjoyed on this beautiful island of Rhodes. The peace and quiet can begin at Villa Maya (which is Greek for magic!). Situated in the quietest area of the development, at the edge of a traditional small village and just a 5 min drive from the spectacular and world famous village of Lindos. Villa Maya enjoys panoramic views of the surrounding hills, olive groves and the distant Mt Ataviros which can be viewed either while relaxing around the pool or sunbathing on the secluded 1st floor sun terrace. The house sits on one of the largest plots on the development affording our guests plenty of breathing space, the gardens are mature and inspiring! The villa is south facing and sun worshippers will relish the all day sunshine. When you want a change you are within a 5 minute drive of several wonderful beaches.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We've had some wonderful guests...some of their comments are below.

08/2014-Martin &fam:'Utterly Brilliant'.

This is without doubt the best Villa we have ever stayed in; a true home-from-home with impeccable facilities, furnishings and décor; with the added advantage of your very own swimming pool. We couldn't have wished for anything more.

07/2014-Tony &fam:'Excellent holiday'.

My personal preference is for a high standard villa with own pool and in quiet but scenic location.Villa maya is all of these things.


'Exquisitely Sublime!'. The Villa was absolutely perfect for our needs! And had so much more than we expected!

08/13-Audrey & Sam:

We were heartbroken to leave !..if you're looking for the ideal place to relax, want to enjoy luxurious accommodation & your own private pool then look no further.

07/13- Tony&fam:

Perfect holiday home in an ideal location. We would absolutely recommend this villa ! We had such a great time !

Lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

This is a very well appointed villa - on the outskirts of Pilonas - a small village between Lindos and Lardos. It is one of several similar villas but is well screened and private. The fittings and fixtures are of the highest standards - it feels like a well loved home rather than a holiday let. There are a huge amount of restaurants within a 5 minute drive and a host of beaches to choose from as well so as long as you are happy to drive its position is very good. We had a great holiday - the sea and pool were plenty warm enough to swim in and we were blessed with warm October sunshine. I could not recommend this villa highly enough.

High quality villa very well equipped

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely stay at Villa Maya.The Villa was very comfortable, tastefully furnished,and well equipped for the six of us.There was a large lounge, good sized kitchen and three double Bedrooms, with a bathroom and shower room.We had a great time. Outside there were plenty of sun loungers, umbrellas , large clean pool and table and chairs for dining.

The location is quiet and although Pefcos is slightly inland Lindos and sandy beaches were only few minutes away.

St Pauls bay and Lindos beach were sandy and very shallow and safe for bathing.

Good patisserie on roundabout next to Supermarket for huge croissants! I would recommend Villa Maya to anyone.

Private paradise

  • 5 of 5

From the curated art & gorgeous gardens to the gentle wind chimes and rooftop stargazing, this Villa is a dream. It offers privacy and a chance to pull back from beach crowds to enjoy quieter times poolside. We could hop over to Lindos quickly and easily. But we're just as happy enjoying the villa itself! The AC and movie selection made for comfy nights in.

Well equipped villa in a quiet location

  • 4 of 5

Villa Maya is in a quiet location near Lindos. It is very well equipped (with particularly comfortable beds) and the roof terrace, private garden, and pool are ideal for relaxing and soaking up the sun. The garden is well stocked and maintained (the roses were in full bloom during our stay.) The large pool with a depth of 1.2 to 1.5m is ideal for both swimmers and non swimmers. The owners were very helpful answering questions about the property and places to visit.

Locally, there is a traditional café/bakery, and a large, well stocked supermarket and café/ patisserie a mile down the hill. Within a 10 minute drive, Lardos, Lindos and Pefkos have a good selection of restaurants.

There are various beaches and traditional villages nearby and Rhodes, with its old town centre and historic monuments, is about 50 minutes drive away.

We thoroughly recommend this to anyone seeking a relaxing holiday in the sun.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Diagoras Airport, Rhodes at 45 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Pylonas Arms at 1 Kilometres Nearest Golf : Afandou Golf at 25 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Chrissa's, Pylonas at 1 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Vlicha at 3 Kilometres Car: recommended


Whether it's the fun of messing about on the water - pedaloes, canoes, banana boats, waterskiing (if that's your thing !) - or just lounging around on sandy shores, you'll be spoilt for choice. Within a 5 minute drive of several wonderful beaches.


Rhodes Diagoras International Airport is a 40 min drive from the Villa. Hiring a car is strongly recommended. Direct flights from most major airports in the UK to Rhodes (Diagoras International Airport), main carriers are Easyjet, Ryanair, Monarch, Thomson, Thomas Cook & Aegean Airways. Flights and ferries from Athens to Rhodes Town. Car hire firms are aplenty-at the airport are the usual giants- Hertz, Avis etc, some local companies and AutoHolidays and Holidayautos which can be booked online and are often the cheapest.


5 mins walk to village, 5 mins drive to Lindos & Lardos beaches, 7 mins to Glystra. Full information guide with places of interest to visit, restaurants, activities, doctors, chemists, etc is available in the house.

Further Details:

It is just a 5 min walk to the village centre with its tavernas, mini-markets and the unusual and lovely bell tower and church of St. Gerasimos. 3 mins drive to large supermarket and ice-cream parlour/bakery. 5 mins drive to Lindos beach, cafes, ATM's, shops and supermarkets. Very vibrant night life with cafes, bars and nightclubs. Lindos is the most spectacular village on the island and just a 5 min drive away. A fabulous confection of sugar cube houses clinging to a hillside crowned by an Acropolis - a 4th century temple to the Goddess Athena - on each side an extraordinary vista of turquoise sea. Beaches of Pefkos, Lardos ( water sports) and Glystra within 7 mins drive, all golden sand.

Go karting and Crazy golf in Lardos. Prassonisi (wind and kite surfing beach) 40 kms south world famous and great for a whole day out - make sure you take a sunhat and loads of suncream! Infamous party village of Faliraki 30 mins drive away - fun for the young and young at heart! Afandou Golf course a 20 mins drive away, award winning par 72 course, enjoy! Valley of the Butterflies, (Petaloudes) Seven Springs (Efta Piges) and the beautiful pine trees on Mt Ataviros at the centre of the island. The list is endless. Rhodes Old Town itself is the best preserved medieval town in Europe - a vast walled citadel which is an UNESCO world heritage site. Take a walk along the top of the gigantic walls and get a birds eye view of the old town, Mandraki harbour and the azure sea beyond. Browse in the many tourist shops that crowd the busy cobbled streets, eat and drink to your hearts content (go on, you're on holiday!) in any one of the dozens of cafes and tavernas, visit the museums, mosques & the Street of the Knights where you will feel that you've stepped back in time.

When you've had your fill exit through one of the many impressive gates and visit the New Town with its trendy shops and cafes, not forgetting to visit the 4 umbrella shops in Lambraki St! Enjoy!
