Villa Galini had everything that we required, fabulous furnishings, fully equipped kitchen (way beyond the standard knife & pan set we usually experience) and an outside area to die for. The view from the balcony is stunning.
I travelled with my husband and two children. He loved the pool and outside seating area, which offers shade when you need it. We felt relaxed knowing that the children could be outside without being able to leave the garden/pool area.
Having youngish children meant we didn't eat out in the evenings as many do. However, our evenings were filled with the wide selection of music, DVDs and games offered.
The Villa is kept to an exceptionally high standard and is clearly a home that is cared for by it's owner. In fact, that's exactly the feeling you get "home from home", with extras.
Quotes from my family :
Daughter (9 yrs) on arrival - "seriously, we're staying here"
Husband (man of few words) - "great pool, fab pad"
Son (10 yrs) - "cool"
Me - "out of this world"
The beach is literally 4 minutes away and is as blue as the sky, with a conveniently located shop with extremely tasty Danishes and ice cream.
For anyone contemplating a visit, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

We booked to stay at villa Galini for our wedding. Our group consisted of myself And my wife, my best man and his wife (one of our bridesmaids) their 11 month old son, another bridesmaid and her partner. As soon as you begin to deal with russ the owner you recognise his attention to detail. He is friendly ad helpful and provides some nice little touches prior to your stay, personalised post cards and luggage tags sent 4weeks and 2 weeks before you travel. It's a nice touch and builds your excitement for your trip
. As we were in lindos for our wedding we decided to spend the first three days in lindos itself to be on hand for any meetings with he wedding planners or venues. we stayed in traditional lindian accommodation. This was a busy few days for us with family arriving on the island and jobs to do. On the 1st September we moved to vlicha bay and to villa Galini.
We arrived at the villa in the blistering heat to find we were a little early, the two very friendly ladies preparing the villa welcomed us and allowed us to leave our luggage while they finished. Our first impression as we arrived was stunned silence. What a place. Russ has obviously spent a lot of time and money making this villa what it is. It's spectacularly clean, modern, comfortable, and very stylishly finished. He has taken what was a nice villa and turned it into a beautiful holiday home not only for himself but also the guests who stay there.
As you explore you find more details and personal touches. For us we had two cards, one for all of the guests staying wishing us a good time, and also a wedding card congratulating us in advance. Chilled water, fruit, and enough essentials in the fridge to allow us to relax immediately. There was also a nice bottle of champagne for myself and my wife to help us celebrate our wedding.
The first thing you notice on arrival is the terrace. Two large glazed doors lead from the living area outside to a large covered dining area and seating area. Once again the owners attention to detail prevails. Stylishly furnished and beautifully presented you immediately feel privileged to be staying in such a place. Beyond the covered area lies the pool and sun deck and the view!. Sun loungers presented with luxurious pool towels, the dark blue pool that seems to match the blue of the sea, the incredibly well maintained garden makes you smile, and you find it hard to stop. Upon every closer look there is something else to make you smile.
Back inside the villa the kitchen is well equipped for cooking and again very well presented. A large fridge, allowing you to store enough food and drink for seven comfortably. And good hob and oven mean that any meal can be prepared. Plenty of glasses, plates and utensils etc.
Off the living area is the smallest of the three bedrooms,a good sized double with doors leading out on to the outside seating area. Very well presented and very comfortable. Next to the staircase is the downstairs shower room. Again, beautifully presented, like a shower room at an exclusive hotel. Its one of those showers you dont want to get out of!!. Under the stairs is the washing machine and cleaning products and plenty of storage for cases etc.
Upstairs there are two large double rooms, immaculately presented with large wardrobes and expensive bed linen and cushions. Each with a dressing table and full length mirrors, the master bedroom wardrobe contains the safe. Each of the upstairs bedrooms have a balcony overlooking the pool and the bay beyond. Off the landing area is a good sized bathroom with bath and shower, loads of storage, and again beautifully finished.
That's the layout. But the reality of staying here is much more than details and furnishings. After the first day you become used to your surroundings and you realise that the nice furniture and luxuries on offer are much more than superficial touches to look good on website photos. These details and luxuries allow (in our case) six adults and one child the comfort, convenience and space to enjoy a holiday without feeling like you have to compromise. You can relax and have fun from the second you arrive. Some of our best days were spent relaxing around the pool with drinks, music, and nice food. These are days I will never forget. The pool is very well maintained throughout your stay and is always clean.
Location. Not a problem for us as we are all reasonably fit but there is a bit of a hill to get to the villa. It can be tricky during the hottest part of the day, but I don't think it takes anything away from staying here. There are villas further up this hillside and I have to say I wouldn't have fancied that walk. Villa galini definitely occupies the prime spot on this hillside. One tip, if getting a taxi back from lindos or a trip out ask to be taken to the lindian jewel and when you get there ask the driver to carry on up the hill. You can be dropped at the front door of the villa. There is also a parking space if you hire a car.
Down the hill slightly you have the lindian jewel hotel, the reception staff are helpful if you want to book a taxi from here. They have a restaurant but we didn't eat here. Slightly further down is a bar, nice cocktails and really good basics in food at a reasonable price. Slightly further down you reach the beach. We have stayed in this bay before so knew what to expect of the beach but its worth noting if you haven't been here before that the beach is predominately pebbled. Its a ni e beach though, and sunrise on the beach is incredible. The water is warm, calm, clear and safe. Great for afternoon swimming or a bit of water sports, the water sport centre is in the centre of the beach and can't be missed. A good choice on offer too.
Set back from the beach is another hotel with a restaurant and bar. The staff are very friendly and the breakfast is affordable and good, but in my opinion it's not the cleanest of places.
Next to the bar is the mini market. It provides all the basics you could want and is very well priced. There are more extensive markets in lindos or kalathos nearby for other ingredients.
On the beach and further along the road are a couple of other bars some on the beach itself and a car hire place. It's a quiet location but we loved that about it.
Towards the end of our stay the other people we were staying with at the villa left for home and myself and my wife had three nights at the villa on our own. The tranquility of the place is something I will never forget. The villa is ideal for a group of six, with the space and freedom that everyone can do their own thing, And then spend time all together having fun, but it works for a couple too. After 10 days of meeting up with family and running around making arrangements the three days we had at the villa on our own was heaven.
We've been back a little over two months now and I can honestly say there hasn't been a day go by that I haven't wished we were back at the villa. We've stayed in some beautiful locations and hotels all over the world, but this was quite simply the best holiday we have ever had, obviously our wedding was a big part of this but villa Galini was the perfect place to stay to enjoy it. I sincerely hope we have the opportunity to stay at the villa again. A big thank you to russ and all in Greece who looked after us at the villa, your efforts made our stay, and our wedding unforgettable.

We arrived to find some essentials in the fridge, and a welcome card, a wedding card and a sparkling bottle of wine as a gift. (A lovely surprise and very thoughtful!) Villa Galini, is a beautiful and spacious villa which was tastefully decorated and contained everything you could ever need. All the bedrooms were equipped with hairdryers and had more than enough coat hangers! (unusual in my experience) The kitchen was full size and had every gadget going - made self catering an enjoyable experience. The outside area was also beautifully decorated and its the attention to detail that makes this villa so special - we are glad we chose it for our honeymoon as it provided some beautiful photographs on our wedding day! The pool and garden area have been beautifully landscaped and add to the view as you sip your wine from the veranda on an evening. The villa is set back up the hillside and is peaceful without being too secluded from local amenities. At the bottom of the road is a hotel (The Lindian Jewel) which does lovely cocktails and we cheekily used them to phone taxis from to get into Lindos, although since we had our wedding reception there, they were more than happy to help. Beyond that is a restaurant, where we often had breakfast after a heavy night out and next door is a small supermarket. If you happen to have a car, there is a large supermarket on the main road, just before you turn off for Vlicha Bay. The beach is also close by, at the bottom in front of the hotel. All in all a great villa which is away from the tourists and busyness of Lindos, but close enough to visit (about 8 - 10 euros in a taxi each way) Thank you Vill Galini for making our Wedding and holiday so special!
