What Oliver loves…
- This villa gets rave reviews with great reason – we especially love the attention to detail.
- It will be easy to spend your whole day on the pool terrace at Villa Makaria. From breakfast to sunset, there’s always a comfy spot to suit
- Villa Makaria has lots to offer visitors, and is conveniently placed for numerous Rhodes attractions, including Lindos and Tsambika Beach
- Villa Makaria is just 30 minutes’ drive from Rhodes Airport, so you can quickly get your holiday started as soon as you arrive.
A sea-view villa with a real wow factor, that sleeps 8. Villa Makaria is a spectacular place to stay when you’re on Rhodes’ east coast. Between Kolympia and Faliraki, you will find Afandou, where Villa Makaria occupies a breath-taking location; complete with private pool, terrace and landscaped gardens.
The outdoor spaces at this villa are inviting and invigorating, with the fresh sea breeze and near-constant sunshine likely to prove irresistible. There is a covered area with dining table, chairs and barbecue, as well as a comfortable seating area, while sun loungers and armchairs line up poolside. The 9m x 4m pool is a pleasure at any time and looks particularly beautiful when lit at night.
Patio doors take you from the terrace to the interior living space, which offers flat screen TV with satellite channels and a surround sound music system. You have comfy sofas in this light and spacious area, as well as a dining table with a view of the ocean. This open-plan space also incorporates the kitchen, which is well-equipped for cooking and entertaining.
The villa has four bedrooms, three of which feature a large double bed. The fourth has twin beds. All of the bedrooms have a smart en-suite bathroom. Air-conditioning and free Wi-Fi are among the extra advantages of Villa Makaria, where you will be met by the owners who do everything they can to make your stay perfect.
Afandou is known for its Blue Flag beach and golf course and offers all sorts of restaurants and amenities. Two of the island’s best-loved beaches are just along the coast – Anthony Quinn Bay to the north, and Tsambika to the south, where the rugged cliffs and extensive golden sands attract sunbathers and water-sports enthusiasts alike.
The island’s capital is just over 20 minutes’ drive from Afandou, with the airport not much further, making this coastal spot easy to reach. Also, don’t miss a trip to the peaceful Valley of the Butterflies or the Lindos Acropolis, two more must-sees when you stay at Villa Makaria.
What you should know…
- At this villa a car is a must, however it gives the advantage of being able to explore the beautiful island of Rhodes.
- The villa is very focused on design, this does mean there are a few drops and open stairs that families with children should make themselves aware of.

Situated between Lindos and Rhodes town and just a 5 minute drive from the blue flag awarded beach of Afantou. The Anthony Quinn bay is just 2 miles away. Hugely popular as a tourist destination, Rhodes is an island with more than its fair share of natural beauty and landmark sights.
The town of Rhodes, a 10 mile drive, 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 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.
Rhodes International Airport "Diagoras"
Rhodes Town, Museums, restaurants, shops
Rhodes is the largest of the Dodecanese Islands of Greece. It’s got a lot of history as it’s been invaded a lot by the Persians, Carians, Ottomans, Italians, and Germans.
Average temperatures go from 20’c in April up to 30’c in July/ August and down to 20’c in November. With an average of 85 rainy days a year they get sunshine for around 280 days.
The island is 90km long with Rhodes town at the northern tip. The airport (Rhodes International Airport "Diagoras") is also in the North (15km from Rhodes Town). Charter flights and Easyjet operate direct from the UK all season and out of season (Nov-March) you’d need to fly via Athens.
The Acropolis – The Acropolis that sits high above the town of Lindos is absolutely amazing and is a must see if you’re looking for some of the best views in all of Rhodes. One thing I should mention is that the climb up to the acropolis requires you to be somewhat active and able to climb stairs, lots of them. The trail begins through town and slowly but surely starts to get steeper as you climb the hill towards the acropolis. Once there, you’re rewarded with historical buildings dating back to 300 BC. Our Villa Corteau sit just underneath the ruins.
Rhodes has over 40 beaches, here are a few:
- Anthony Quinn’s Bay – Anthony Quinn’s bay is one of the most beautiful bays. The bay is located 17km (10 mi) south of Old Town Rhodes and offers some incredible photo opportunities to say the least.
- The beach at Anthony Quinn’s bay is one of the best beaches in Rhodes. Get there early if you want to snag a sunbed and umbrella and enjoy wading around the bright blue and green water. Amazing!
- For the best views of Anthony Quinn’s Bay from above, head on up to the windy road that leads up the hill just north of the bay and you’ll find a spot where you can sit and enjoy the virtually 180 degree views of Rhodes and its coastline.
- Tsambika Beach (or Tsampika) – Tsampika beach is located 30km (18 mi) south of Old Town Rhodes and is a great place to spend the day in the sun. Note: Beware there is a small section where nudists congregate on Tsampika beach
- Lakido Beach – Just opposite Anthony Quinn’s Bay is Lakido beach. It’s literally 3 minutes walking distance from Anthony Quinn’s bay so visiting both beaches in a day is totally doable. As a matter of fact, I would highly recommend visiting both if you get the chance
- Faliraki Beach – One of the most popular tourist spots on the island of Rhodes. It was known for 18-30’s holiday in the 90-2000’s but I don’t think there is that market so much now. It is quite commercialised now there are water sports and a few diving schools.
How to reach Rhodes island
There are two ways to reach Rhodes Island: either by flight or by ferry.
By plane: If you don’t want to lose time you can fly to Rhodes (RHO) from Athens. The flight lasts 1 hour. Many direct flights also operate from many European countries, so it will not be difficult to arrive there.
By ferry: If you choose to travel from Piraeus to Rhodes with a ferry, it will surely take you much longer but travelling with a ferry in the summer nights can be pretty enticing! The port of Rhodes is located in the southern part of the island and offers bus services to the town centre. You can easily book your ferry tickets using the link below or the booking engine.
Villa Makaria is a stunning holiday home for visitors of all ages. We think the children will love the amazing pool, the panoramas from the terrace, and the chance to enjoy a meal outside in the fresh air. There’s all the tech you would hope for, from Wi-Fi to big-screen TV and music system, and the location is great too. You won’t run out of beautiful beaches or tempting eateries to visit, and attractions like the waterpark at Faliraki, the Aquarium and Valley of Butterflies are just a short drive away.

If heaven had villas this would be it!
Literally everything! Impeccably clean, absolutely huge, perfect location on the mountain and a perfect location on the island, quiet, modern, stylish, the jaw dropping view, the privacy, the way we were treated by the amazingly friendly staff, superbly equipped and modern kitchen, comfortable beds, hot showers, spotless towels, air conditioned rooms. It’s not often I haven’t got a single point I’d like to see improved - but this villa and it’s owners really thought things through right down to the last little detail. It truly is a slice of heaven and we could have stayed here forever. My advice; don’t look any further - book here, you will not regret a single second! To close it in one word; wow!
