“Well appointed villa, great location”
Reviewed 8 July 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Fully equipped villa in quiet location with super views. Loved having every meal outside. A real home from home.
Gennadi is an excellent location, not commercialized but with a good supermarket and a number of tavernas that offer great food at fair prices. More tavernas are at the beach which is probably a 20 minute walk (or for me a 5 minute drive).
Good beach, pebbly and gets deep very quickly so not perfect for tots,
Easy access to everywhere on the island.

“Lovely place”
Reviewed 22 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

My husband and I stayed with our 2 teenage boys for a week. Everything was smooth about this stay, from the initial helpful dealings with the owners, right through the excellent directions from the airport and the stay itself. The Villa is really well equipped and, oh, the view is stunning. On the edge of Gennadi ( which has everything you could want) it feels as if you could be in the middle of nowhere. Neighbouring villas don't encroach upon this villa at all.
We really loved it and would love to return one day.

“Wonderfully peaceful villa”
Reviewed 25 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We have just returned from a lovely relaxing week at the villa. To wake every morning to bird song and that wonderful view is something we shall miss.
The villa itself is very well equipped, we've been booking villas for approx 15 years, probably the best quipped we have come across.
The owners were very easy to deal with and all information given was accurate and helpful.
We have no doubts that we will return to Rhodes and in the meantime we would not hesitate to recommend this villa to all our friends and family.
We went for a peaceful relaxing holiday and it did " everything it said on the tin".
Many thanks Suzi.

“Wonderful setting and gorgeous villa”
Reviewed 15 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We had a wonderful time staying at Villa Aglaia in May. Privacy can be a concern when booking somewhere, but we found the villa to be wonderfully private: there is a villa next door but the living areas don't face each other so there was no sense of being overlooked. The views from all rooms (both upstairs and down) are fantastic and varied - wonderful sea views to the front, and mountains to the right and back. Plenty of birds, and the wonderful smell of the Greek countryside completed the country feel - even thought the villa is only a 6 minute walk from the well equipped village of Gennadi, where you will find everything you need - supermarket, baker, coffee shops, and a few restaurants and bars.

One thing we definitely appreciated (and you will too if you go in high summer) was the fully covered dining area, enabling us to escape the sun completely during the hottest period of day. In my experience this feature is rare in holiday villas!

The pool was perfect, and the warmest we've encountered on the island. It's not massive, but ideal for a cooling dip.

Inside the villa is very well equipped, and feels equipped for actual living - whenever looked for something we might need we found it.

The villa is a good 15 minute stroll from the beach (which is excellent and has various tavernas - visit Antonis for great seafood), or a very quick drive. Whilst not completely necessary (bus services from the village are good) a car would be a good idea if you want to fully explore the island (definitely worth it if you have time).

All in, we had a fantastic time, and would definitely recommend Villa Aglaia - I am sure we will return in the future.

“Perfection”
Reviewed 9 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

This Villa is perfect. Amazing panoramic views, stretching from the hills across the countryside to the sea and at night the lack of light pollution means you see all the stars. The villa is perfectly appointed with a comfortable lounge and 3 bedrooms all with there own balcony. Brilliant location, 5 minutes walk from the quiet and authentically Greek village of Gennadi with its tavernas, bars and shops. It is also 15 minutes walk from the sandy beach and more tavernas featuring fabulous seafood. It is excellently equipped with a small swimming pool which is perfect to cool off and to keep the kids happy. Perhaps best of all is its position on the beautiful Island of Rhodes, only 45 mins from the airport but well out of the busy resorts and only 10 minutes from the must visit ancient city of Lindos. We can't wait to go back
