The Aegean Islands region
Rhodes is one of the Aegean Islands in Greece. It is the most popular of all the Greek Islands for good reason! It boasts magnificent beaches, dramatic scenery and has centuries of history just waiting to be explored. Rhodes enjoys over 300 days of sunshine a year with temperatures remaining pleasant year round. The averagage temperature in low to mid season is 25c and can rise to 35c-40c in high season which means the free air-conditioning throughout the villa can be a welcome relief!
The world famous town of Lindos with its cobbled streets and towering Acropolis and Rhodes Town (old and new) are both a sightseeing must. The people of Rhodes are friendly and hospitable and a wide variety of languages are spoken. The cuisine is of a very high standard in Rhodes, you will find both excellent local Greek food and International restaurants across the Island. The Island has a good transport system with affordable car hire readily available, a reliable bus service and an excellent taxi service.
The Rhodes / Gennadi area
Gennadi is a traditional year round village in the peaceful South of the Island with a wide range of amenities. It boasts an endless blue flag pebble beach and crystal clear, clean sea. The peaceful beach offers sun loungers and umbrellas for hire and has a selection of seafront tavernas. Villa Maiya is situated on an exclusive development of 9 properties each with private grounds and pools. It has a stunning mountain backdrop with direct access to walking areas.
It is just a 20 minute drive from magnificent Lindos with all its beautiful tourist attractions.The sandy blue flag beach and wide selection of restaurants/bars at Pefkos is only a 15 minute drive away. Further South you will find Prassonissi where two different seas meet (Aegean and Mediterranean), it is said you can stand on the beach and have one foot in each sea! Prassonissi is popular for kite surfing and other extreme watersports all of which are available to try if you dare! Sun seekers will love nearby Glystra beach and Kiotari bay which are ideal places to relax with a good book. If you like a bit more activity the Islands 18 hole golf course at Afandou is a 30-40 minute drive. The exciting waterpark and extensive range of watersports at Falaraki are just a further 5 minute drive. Rhodes Town is a tale of two cities! The UNESCO world heritage site of the old Town with its medieval castle and ancient churches, and the New Town with its modern shops and restaurants/bars are a mere hour away.

Fantastic location, well equipped villa, perfect splash pool - very welcoming in the heat! Local village offers good food, great value, and friendly faces. Nearby are gorgeous sandy beaches ( at Glystra), luxury hotels that allow day passes, Pefkos and Lindos are more built up if you want to up the pace a bit - Lindos by night is well worth a visit.
Would highly recommend both the area and the villa - we travelled with 2 young children (5 & 3) and it was perfect - TV & DVD player, MP3/iPhone dock for music, games, books etc. The air conditioning was also a favourite!!!
If you're after total relaxation, you'll find it here :-)

The villa is quite large inside, with an open plan lounge, dining and kitchen flowing to an outdoor plunge pool, which was fantastic for the mid 30s heat of mid-summer. Upstairs are two good sized bedrooms, with comfortable beds and plenty of cupboard space, plus access to a communal balcony with sea view. The main bedroom also has its own small balcony. There is much-needed air conditioning throughout, with excellent doors and windows, with shutters that seal well against the heat.
The villa is located about one minute from Gennadi, up a gravel track, and the turn into the complex of several villas is tight. Villa Maiya is at the end of the complex, and as there is no ability to turn around - reversing out takes some getting used to but is manageable.
Gennadi has shops for basic provisons, and a couple of nice restaurants. The local beach is stoney, but has several restaurants overlooking the water. Larger villages with more facilities are less than 10 minutes drive away, and the fabulous Lindos is only 20 minutes. There's a lovely small, sandy beach 10 minutes away at Glystra, half way to Lindos, with calm waters and great for swimming.
Whilst Gennadi may be remote from the action further north, it's a lovely quiet location, with easy access around the island with a car. Rhodes is not that big, and nowhere is more than an hour's drive away.
