Villa | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
The Villa is perched gracefully on a gentle hillside with sweeping panoramic views overlooking Gennadi Bay, arguably the most scenic bay in Rhodes, proudly holding a blue flag award.
It's 0.5Km away from Gennadi sea front which has good quality traditional tavernas, ideal for a tasty local meal or a refreshing drink. Gennadi village is 0.5Km away providing excellent eateries, we recommend 'Mama's Kitchen' with it's fresh local fayre, attractive garden and friendly staff! There is also a small supermarket, traditional bakery with fresh product daily, pharmacy and greengrocers. It is possible to walk to both seafront and village, but a car is recommended due to the climate!
Lindos with it's Ancient Acropolis and charming cobbled white washed streets is an experience not to be missed! With a white sandy bay and many delightful bars and taverns to choose from, it is well worth a visit.
Kiotari is 7 minutes away to the North with lovely sandy beaches, glass-bottomed boats and 'chill-out' bars.
Prasonissi is 20 minutes away to the Southern most tip of the Island, this is where two seas meet and is a fantastic location for watersports!
The jewel in the crown has to be the Old Town of Rhodes which is 45 minutes to the North. A medieval walled town being arguably the best preserved in Europe and is Nesco protected. The town is bursting with differing cultural influences from Ancient Greek civilization through to Byzantine, Christian- The Knights of St John, Turkish and Venetian to name a few. The pretty cobbled streets offer an eclectic mix of tavernas, bars, interesting shops (selling everything from unique jewellery to leather shoes and goods) and historical buildings/monuments.

|Further details outdoors|
This private location comes complete with all the outdoor essentials - dining table, sun loungers, padded deckchairs, parasol and barbeque, guests can sunbathe by day and dine alfresco by night. The upper veranda is extremely roomy and a great place to have an early morning coffee/early evening drink. The spacious outdoor and pergola areas make for the perfect setting for family barbeques whilst watching the sun drop gently over Gennadi Bay. There is adequate space for car parking. The stars are truly magical at this location in the evening, especially from the upper veranda.

The Aegean Islands region
Rhodes is the largest of the 12 Dodecanese Islands, lying on a Northeast-Southwest axis in the Southeastern Aegean sea, approximately 10 miles from the Turkish coast (there are plenty of boating excursions available from various locations on the East coast including trips to other Dodecanese Islands such as Symi, Kastelorizo, Leros and also Turkey) . Most of the golden sandy beaches on Rhodes are found along the limestone shores of the East, whereas, grey sands, shingle and pebble predominate on the West coast.
There is a wealth of history embedded on this Ancient Greek Island from the Old Town, with is Palace of the Grand Masters, Lindos with its superb location and Acropolis, Tsambika with it's scenic monastery through to the Castles of Kastello and Monolithos.
The climate is characterised by mild, damp Winters and hot, dry Summers separated by short Spring and Autumn periods. Rhodes in particular is sheltered by the nearby Turkish mainland and lies on the same latitude as North Africa making summers very hot. The Meltemi blows along the West coast of the Island in the summer , cooling the temperature and attracting wind surfers.
The West Coast of the island boasts many interesting places to visit from the ruins of a castle at Kastello near Kritinia, to the castle at Monolithos, steeped in romanticism set on top of a rock, try Christos Corner taverna for a delicious choice of Greek cuisine, with a wide range of mezedes.
There are beautiful natural springs on the Island such as those at the Seven Springs and Petalouthes ( a wonderful cool scenic valley where the migrating Jersey Tiger Moths gather in their thousands).
Tsambika beach and monastery are well worth a visit for a double whammy of coastal beauty and history.
Prasonissi is at the Southern most tip of the Island and is the place for kite surfing and wind surfing! Also on the water activities front the Islands sophisticated waterpark at Kalithea is not to be missed!
Lindos Bay with the village and acropolis beyond is also extremely popular with swimmers, windsurfers and waterskiers with plenty of instruction available.
Gennadi Bay, closest to the Villa (0.5Km) has much to offer without having to travel. There are a range of tavernas, bars and watersport facilities are available. The beach is pebbly with shingles with crystal clear waters in abundance.
The Rhodian villages of Vati, Lahania, Pefkos and Lardos are in the near vicinity with a range of traditional tavernas and beaches, try Platanos taverna at Lahania- excellent Greek cuisine served in the square under the shade of an ancient tree.

We stayed in 2 units (phoebe & nicole). The units have all equipment you need for family with small children (dish washer, baby bed, baby chair, washing machine).
The units were clean and in good condition.
The pool is great and also the porch and the view is perfect (sea...)
The units located up the hill isolated from other houses which allow us to have any mood we want, from totally silence to full volume music.
Joy was on line for our request and also the handyman.
The village Genady is 1 minute from the units, there you can find bakery, super and fruit/ veg store. Also in the village there are good restaurants (Nikos & Pamya was the best).
we enjoyed all 7 nights, wish we could stay more..
Thank you for sending in your lovely review.
You will always be welcome guests in the villas!

"Great place to stay"
We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Sophie, and our contact with Joy by email and Costas in person. After 3 hectic weeks of travelling the villa was a haven. Gennadi is a lovely town, and the villa is well-located for exploration of the whole island.Our initial difficulty finding the villa and getting the key to work have probably already been fixed by updating instructions for future tenants.
Thank you for this Karen and Pat.
Any time that you are in Southern Europe, please contact us, it would be lovely to hear from you.
We've put a larger sign on the main road!

"Peaceful, private beautiful retreat"
We've just returned from a fabulous holiday at this villa. The villa is set back from the main road, far enough to enjoy the stunning views of the sea and mountains, great views from the balcony too, fantastic for star gazing! We found a hire car was neccessary to get the best from the holiday. The pool was a good size and kept v.clean, sunbeds v comfy which was important as this is where we spent most of the day! We also enjoyed a nice BBQ at the villa. The villa itself was clean, spacious, with comfortable beds and sofa, the kitchen was well equipped. Felt very cosy there! The area was traditionally greek not 'touristy' at all. Gennadi village has everything you need and the people are so friendly. The local beach was just breathtaking, pebbles are the new sand! It was deserted, clean with the clearest sea! There are so many pretty little tavernas to discover and enjoy all close by. As a young couple we wanted a bit of nightlife so Lindos( 20 min drive from the villa) was a perfect magical setting with bars( open late for dancing!) roof top restaurants and shops. A visit to Rhodes town is a must! ( 1 hr drive), steeped in history and comes to life as night falls!
The owners of the villa were so helpful and made sure our stay was perfect in every way. Best holiday to date, thanks to them!
Hi Dulcie and Will,
Thank you for this, it is a very uplifting review and so helpful to other potential holiday makers.
Hope all is well.
Joy and Kostas xx
