Highly recommned Villa Athena to all.
Jules the villa owner was excellent at communicating with us prior to our stay - loads of really useful information provided including top places to eat and drink.
We arrived late at night to find the the fridge stocked with beers, wine and food to keep us going till we got to a supermarket. The wine and beer were particularly welcome after our journey!!
There were 12 of us who went - couples ages 25-35 and there was lots for us to do as a group or on our own as couples. We did not hire a car as the walk to Lindos town was 'do-able' and taxis were very cheap and frequenlty drove past and stopped for weary walkers on the route! The walk to Pefkos - we managed once but really rather steep and not path so best taxi this route. Lots of places to eat in both Lindos and Pefkos - some a bit tacky but also some real gems such as 'Melenos' and 'Lindos By Night Bar' both with stuning views and lovely staff.
The villa itself was amazing. The photos give you an idea how beautiful the place is but it is only when you arrive you can see how breath taking the views and villa is. The extra touches the villa owner has left really add to the feeling of luxury - such as The White Company towels and hand soap - even the boys noted this was a mark of class! ;-) The beautiful decoration and furniture add to it being a place you are happy to just relax and 'be' at. The sun loungers are really good quality not the yucky plactic type one usualy finds on holiday and meant there were days bar the odd trip to the fridge we barely left them!
As a group of 12 we found the villa ideal - there were 3 bathrooms, one on each floor, each with a bath and shower, the American fridge and freezer were ideal and the spring filtertered water meant we did not have to lug bottles of water back from the super market.
The views were fabulous and the efinity pool was breath taking - one of those places that makes you say...'if I win the lottery'...
The villa manger was most helpful and was on hand to answer any questions.
Weather was awesome only 1 cloudy day - but even this was still warm, depsite concerns that early May would be too early for good weather we were blessed with sun!
All 12 of us said we would recomend to friends and family and make sure we show them the photo's to ensure they are suitably jealous!!
