many happy returns
This was my second stay at Villa Calista. The first one was 7 years ago. I jus simply love this house. Its location, the beautifully kept garden and pool. It is very private, well equiped, just the right size. Up to 6 people can stay. The first time it was just two of us and it was also great. The owners are very hospitable, friendly, always available, as is Spiros, taking care of the property and its guests. I recommend it with all my heart!

Perfect family friendly location
Just enjoyed the most relaxing 10 days holiday we've had as a family. The Villa is extremely well appointed, with pretty much all amenities covered, and maintained to a very high standard. The pool area is fantastic, we were in it every day some nights well past sunset. Location is great, with local shops and Taverns within walking distance. The beach at Tsampika is a short drive away, plenty of free parking with water sports available. Reasonably priced dining facilities are also available, if like me you're partial to a good Gyros, then make sure you head here. The owner also deserves a mention, you're provided with a comprehensive welcome pack and information folder in the Villa containing a wealth of information about where to visit, eat etc. very useful if you don't know the island, and a great touch. I've a feeling I'll be back :-)

villa and garden outstanding pool was amazing. Manager very helpful
The villa is on the road to seven springs and in a gated complex with 3 other villas. Air-con throughout excellent furniture in bedrooms and living room, the pool and gardens were stunning we used the pool everyday a few times we was in the pool after 10:30 in the evening. The management team are only a phone call away at any time of the day, both manager and owner gave great advise on were to eat, places to visit and, best place to get hire car.

Fabulous Villa in excellent location
We went to Calista as a family of four - two adults and two children 10 and 13. The Villa was well appointed in a quiet four villa compound in a remote location (car necessary) away from any hustle and bustle .Beautiful scenery around the villa. Good amenities were all within a short drive - tavernas, shops, beaches etc.The kids loved the pool at the villa and the villa itself met all our expectations. The couple in Rhodes who look after the villa on behalf of the owner, are very welcoming and helpful and easily contactable. We found beautiful beaches at Tsambika and Agathi. Stegna also worth a visit. The nearest Taverna was family run and very welcoming with great food - don't be put off by the fact that you may be there on your own! Travelling around the island is relatively simple and it is definitely worth exploring. All in all we had a fab holiday at Villa Calista and would like to return one day!

Probably the best house I have ever stayed
The house is beautiful; ,fully air-conditioned, has all the appliances needed like a coffee maker, microwave, kettle, iron and iron board, hair drier, safe…there is no lack of cutlery , plates, pots or pans, all the linen and towels are provided and of really good quality, no crap stuff. It even has a cot and a baby’s chair!!!! The garden is like nothing I had seen before on rental houses, so well preserved and full of flowers when I was there. It has a little frangipani tree that I loved… You can see that the owner really cares about it. It is a really quiet place not far from Seven Springs. There is no noise apart from the odd car and nature. And look up…the sky is full of stars at night… There is a couple taking care of it that keep it really clean, take care of the garden and swimming-pool and help you with anything you need. Really good and genuine people. I really recommend this house, as I felt really at home in it. I will probably go back next year. And what to say about Rhodes…It is a beautiful place.

About the neighbourhood
Villa Calista is located in a private complex near Kolymbia. The panoramic scenes include pine tree covered mountains. The peace and tranquillity really set this location apart from others whilst still being central to the Island of Sun. The Villa is near the main road between Falaraki approx (10km) and Lindos (25km). There are are a number of nearby restaurants / tavernas and a supermarket, etc...Kolymbia is 5 min by car.
Getting around
It is recommended to hire a car as the Villa is on a road which has no pavement for 800m to the closest tavernas and supermarket and it is better to have a car to get the most from your stay. We can pass on details of a nearby company that will allow pick-up and drop-off of the hire car at the airport. There is a bus service to various places such as Rodos (Rhodes) Town, Faliraki, Lindos and the bus stop is outside the mentioned supermarket. Taxis can (not always) be found at a taxi rank at the supermarket or can be called from the Afandou village taxi station. The closest town is at 3km from the Villa (Kolymbia).
