The Aegean Islands region
Rhodes is the largest of the Dodecanese islands, a group of twelve islands adjacent to the Aegean coastline of Turkey. The Knights of St John were resident on the Dodecanese between the 4th and 6th century AD, and built castles on each of the islands. While the Dodecanese islands are grouped closely together, there is a wide diversity in landscape, culture and traditions on each island.
If you have never visited Greece before, expect a laid-back, restful experience. Greek people are extremely warm and friendly, and the family is central to Greek culture, so children are always welcomed in bars and restaurants.
The beautiful island of Rhodes is commonly known as the 'Island of the Sun' as it usually boasts at least 300 days of sunshine per year. The landscape is diverse, ranging from stunning mountains to the interior, and endless beaches and quiet coves, some with Blue Flag status, most of which are easily accessible by car.
Rhodes is steeped in ancient history, relics can be found all around the island. In particular, the remains of the Colossus of Rhodes, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, can be seen in the UNESCO world heritage town of Rhodes to the North of the island. Also well worth a visit in Rhodes town are the Palace of the Grand Masters and the archaeological museum, and the cosmopolitan harbour region, where you can view the many yachts and boats while enjoying Greek meze in one of the many portside tavernas.From Rhodes harbour, ferries to neighbouring Symi or Turkey can be caught for day trips.
Lindos is an unforgettable experience, a stunning village of whitewashed 'sugar cube' houses lie under the imposing acropolis dating back to 2000bc. There are 4 beaches, ranging from a popular beach with water sports in high season, to a quiet cove in the enchanting St Paul's bay. On an evening, choose from a vast range of rooftop tavernas, each offering stunning views of Lindos by night.
Nightlife on Rhodes is suited to all tastes, from traditional Greek evenings to modern nightclubs to romantic evenings enjoying the beautiful sunset.
An award winning par 72 golf course is located at Afandou, 16 miles from Pilona. Also, there is a large waterpark in Faliraki, and Prasonissi, on the Southernmost tip of the island, is a haven for kitesurfers and windsurfers.
Attractions on the island include the Valley of the Butterflies, the habitat of hundreds of thousands of Quadrina butterflies during the Summer months, and Epta Piges (seven springs), a woodland paradise, with a crystal clear lake and a kilometre-long pitch black ancient aqueduct tunnel through which braver individuals can walk!
The West coast of the island is largely unspoilt and many ancient monasteries can be visited in spectacular locations. To the interior, visit Siena to taste Souma, the local firewater, and Embonas, home to several vineyards open to the public for wine tasting - just make sure someone else is driving!
The village of Pilona is situated just a few minutes drive from Lindos, and its location allows easy accessibility to all the attractions Rhodes has to offer, including a large beach less than five minutes drive away.Pilona is a tranquil, laid back village, but still offers two tavernas offering excellent traditional Greek food, a village shop and children's playground. A large supermarket is within a couple of minutes drive.

Very nice house in a peaceful location amongst olive groves. 5 minute drive to beautiful lindos, 2 minutes from supermarket, great rooftop jacuzzi. The only negative I have to say is that the owner wa… More
Thank you for your kind comments regarding our property in Rhodes, we try our hardest to ensure that everybody staying at our villa enjoys their holiday. Sometimes events outside of our control can happen.
On return we always send our guests a feedback form to gain an understanding of client likes and dislikes to try and remidy any dislikes for future guests.
We ourselves have been in similar situation when a well known airline collapsed in 2008 only two days prior to us departing for our Wedding in Rhodes. Which cost us an extra £800 in new flights from an airport 300 miles furthur from our original departure airport so we fully empathised with our guests situation. we were also stranded due to the Ash cloud for 8 days in April 2010.
In response to the comments regarding the lack of comprehension and compassion regarding the strike situation. We feel that these comments are harsh and unjustified for the following reasons.
It clearly states on our website the cancellation policy. This is within 7 days of booking full refund between 7 days of booking and ten weeks of departure any monies paid less the booking deposit and within 10 weeks of departure no refunds are available. This is in line with industry standards. This cancellation policy is stated on the FAQ page on our website.
When responding to enquiries we always provide a link to our website and we answer questions in a timely and professional fashion.
This guest was due to arrive on the Thursday 20th October and the air traffic control strike was scheduled for 12 hours on the Wednesday 19th October prior to their arrival. Which did not affect the clients travel plans in any way.
Due to the nature of the impending strike action we refered the guest to their travel insurance company and also the credit card company with regard to gaining a refund if they could not travel.
When our guests came back to us and stated that they could not gain any form of refund from there insurance we offered to change the arrival and departure dates to the Saturday to Saturday.
The guest then came back and stated that there were no return flights available. On checking a well known flight checker website there were flights available from nearby airports to there home. The guest stated that they could not afford these flights.
I then offered to re-advertise the availaility on a late availability offer to resell the villa at my expense if this had sold a full refund would have been given.
With regard to lack of compassion I think we have shown that we have explored every avenue to address the situation. Stayed in constant contact via email and phone and offered alternatives.
We also checked with Holiday lettings that our course of action was complient with standard procedures, it was stated that what we were doing was more than most owners would offer.

"Peace & Tranquility"
Olive Grove Villa is equipped to a very high standard, with everything you couild possibly need for a self catering holiday. The facilities at the Villa are excellent, we spent many an hour relaxing by the pool, and later in the day relaxing on the wonderful roof terrace. The views from the roof terrace were amazing, particularly at sunset from the jaccuzzi.
A lot of thought and attention to detail has gone into the indoor and outdoor furnishings, which definitely make for a more welcoming and relaxing holiday. There are a couple of typical Greek Tavernas within walking distance, which serve lovely food. Venturing further afield, Lardos & Lindos are wonderful places to visit & sample the local cuisine.
We returned from our stay at Olive Grove totally relaxed and ready for the great British winter !! We can definitely recommend this Villa, particularly for it's peace and tranquility, (with livelier facilities close by if required)

"Beautiful villa run by really lovely and helpful people"
Just recently returned from a wonderful week at Olive Grove Villa run by lovely Colin and Jennie - right from booking they were so helpful with advice and friendly tips. They have a great management team out there who are always on the end of the phone as well. Plenty of space, clean and finished to a lovely standard, the pool was fantastic and the hot tub was a real treat! I don't think I could go on holiday again without having both to choose from! Made full use of the BBQ and lots of really good local produce to chose from in the little shops in Lardos, plus a well stocked supermarket near by. Would recommend hiring a car (use George Cars, great value and good service) as it's a short drive away from Lindos (although not too much for a taxi there and back in the evenings) but also great to be able to explore more of Rhodes especially the south and west coast. All in all just a really great place to be based, we had such a lovely time there and couldn't recommend it highly enough. Thank you!

"Ideal spot to relax and recharge your batteries"
Really nice, quiet location, with private pool, modern smart interior, and an excellent roof terrace where day or night you can relax. Highlight after dinner in or out was a night cap in the jacuzzi watching the stars.
