Villa Angela is a unique, historic villa, originally a 'Captain's' house dating from the 1840s, situated in the heart of Lindos town located down a quiet lane yet only minutes walk from beaches, restaurants, shops and the Acropolis.
As you walk through the ornately-carved front door of Villa Angela, you enter into an inner sanctum of peace and tranquility - a beautiful courtyard with a traditional Lindian cobbled pavement surrounded by comfortable seating and lush planting crowned by an enormous tree providing cool shade. Off the main courtyard are a fully-equipped kitchen with seating; a delightful twin bedroom with ornate wooden ceiling; the main bathroom and walk in bath; a huge 'salone' (Drawing Room) with intricately carved wooden beams and raised beds/sofas with scattered cushions; and a jasmine-scented walk up some stone steps leads to the Master Bedroom, a gorgeous and very private room with a huge double bed on a raised platform, located in its own tower with wraparound views of the village.
Another set of stone steps leads to a white-washed roof terrace with potted olive trees and further up is a second white-washed roof terrace with breathtaking views over Lindos' white-washed houses.
Walk through to a second cobbled courtyard with a stone dining table seating 10, under a pergola dripping with lemons, and a smaller seating area with ornamental fireplace. The second twin bedroom is traditionally furnished and is near the second bathroom with wet-room-type shower and laundry.
Villa Angela is a rare and unique, beautifully restored historic house full of character ideal for truly getting away from it all with friends and family, and within a few yards of shops, restaurants and beaches - the perfect holiday!

Rhodes is the largest of the Dodecanese island group located in the far east of the Aegean Sea close to Turkey.
It is the greenest of the Greek islands and is also known as the 'Sun Island' with around 320 days of sunshine per year!
Rhodes offers something for everyone - History, architecture, beautiful beaches, hidden coves, great shopping, nightlife, quiet retreats, traditional tavernas, roof top restaurants with amazing views, fine dining, wonderful hospitality and a stunning sea.
Rhodes Island is also just a boat ride away from Symi, Halki, Tilos and Kos.
Lindos is a picture-perfect village of sugar-cube white houses nestled into the side of a hill on the shores of the sparkling Aegean Sea, crowned by its own ancient Acropolis. Its charming cobbled streets are fully pedestrianised (no cars) and are lined with cosmopolitan restaurants, traditional tavernas, sophisticated bars, local handicraft shops, bars and cafes, as well as charming local houses with friendly and welcoming Lindians.
Within a few minutes walk (or local Lindian taxi - a donkey) you reach the top of a beautiful Acropolis dating back to 4BC which offers absolutely incredible 360 degree views. The many roof top restaurants and bars in Lindos afford dramatic views of the beautifully - lit Acropolis at night.
There are 3 beaches nestled around Lindos - a large crescent of white sand lines 'Big Beach' whilst 'Small Beach' lies just below the Acropolis. To the south of the village is St. Paul's Bay, a very picturesque little bay with a small beach and perfectly clear water for swimming and relaxing.
Villa Angela is a unique, historical traditional Lindian 'Captain's' house dating back to 1840 filled with a wealth of original features and is on a quiet lane a stone's throw from beaches, restaurants and shops. A stay in this unique villa provides all the ingredients for a truly wonderful family holiday or romantic break without having to drive anywhere else!
If you can tear yourself away for the day, the stunning windswept beach of Prassonisi is a 40 minute drive to the south, famous for windsurfing and kite-surfing. Glystra, a lovely sandy, sheltered bay about 20 minutes drive is perfect for families with small children whilst Tsambika, a 30 minute drive north is long and sandy and perfect for teenagers who want to indulge in watersports: jet ski, parasailing and ringo/banana boats.
Rhodes Town is famous for its Old Town and historical sights, as well as shopping and night life. Day trips to neighbouring Symi are also available.
