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.
