Property Description

Modern and enticing, Villa Socrates puts you right on the beachfront at the laid-back Rhodes resort of Kolympia. Up to 12 guests can enjoy this villa’s amenities and stunning location, including a 12m x 9m infinity pool and hot tub, and direct access to the beach.

The villa has a spacious terrace with a barbecue area and covered, furnished spaces for dining and relaxing. In addition to the main pool, there’s one for the children too, while the hot tub provides a special treat for the adults. Plenty of sun loungers are ready for you to make the most of the climate, poolside-style.

Inside, the villa is decorated largely in white and neutral tones, giving it a fresh and contemporary feel. You will enjoy sea views from the open-plan living area with its large Smart TV and DVD. This room takes you straight out to the furnished veranda, letting you drift in and out seamlessly.

The kitchen is equipped with oven, microwave, fridge and dishwasher, and you will find two bedrooms with bunk beds on the ground floor too, along with a bathroom. Upstairs, you have two fully air-conditioned double bedrooms, both with an en-suite and a private balcony. Lights and window shutters are operated by clever smart controls, and Villa Socrates also offers free Wi-Fi throughout. If you’re travelling with young children, the villa is also equipped with a cot and high-chair.

Kolympia is a chilled-out kind of resort, not full of full-on nightlife, and is a pleasant place to spend a relaxing day. Nursing a drink in one of the seafront tavernas or cafés is one of life’s simple pleasures done right. During the day, all sorts of watersports are available to try, including water-skiing and wind-surfing, while an 18-hole course at nearby Afandou will please golfers. Head further north, and you will soon be in Rhodes’ historic Old Town or enjoying the pretty harbour of Mandráki.


Kolympia has a stunning mountain back drop and lovely shingle beaches, with crystal clear waters. It has a small centre with tavernas, bars and some souvenir shops. One of Kolympia’s highlights is the Eucalytus Road buiklt during the Italian occupation. Kolympia is easy to reach, with an international airport, Diagoras, about 30 minutes’ drive and Rhodes Town a similar distance.
The town of Rhodes is as good a place to start as any, and lies on the northern tip of the island. A walk along the medieval walls of the Old Town will offer you some beautiful views, accessible from the must-see Palace of the Grand Masters. Part of a World Heritage Site, this is also the location of a fine museum which offers the chance to familiarise yourself with Rhodian history, extending as far back as the 3rd century BC.
Another museum worth checking out is the Museum of Modern Greek Art, with an eclectic collection only rivalled by Athens. The New Town area is visually appealing itself, with an Art Deco influence present in much of its architecture. Mandráki harbour is the home of Evangelismós Cathedral, where you can find some impressive frescoes.
The Lindos Acropolis is as spectacular as the coastal views it enjoys, and definitely worth seeing. Down the coast, you also have resorts such as Ammoudes, Kolympia and, perhaps best-known, Faliraki. While its reputation may precede it, this is not the hedonism capital it once was. A children’s water-park and the beautiful Anthony Quinn Bay may tempt you there during the day, and an aquarium and scuba-diving school also embrace the aquatic theme.
At the very southern tip of the island, Prasonisi’s location – dividing the Aegean and the Mediterranean – is considered prime wind-surfing territory. But if that sounds a little too exhilarating, Rhodes’ more sedate attractions like the Valley of the Butterflies, numerous wineries and the seven springs of the wonderfully scenic Epta Piges nature reserve, will provide just as pleasant a day out.
