“Bat research in Rhodes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Our trip was to carry out the first ever major inventory for bats on the island. Our total group comprised 14 people, 11 of them from the UK part of the group staying in Villa Lucas.
Villa Lucas was a great base it is a well equipped, spacious and in a convenient location a couple of minutes walk from the sea.
It is within 5 minutes drive of the main eastern coast highway and a decent sized supermarket.
The villa has a nice covered and open sided eating area and a lovely garden.
I would recommend as a great base to stay.

“Fully recommend”

We stayed for two weeks from early September and had a wonderfully relaxing time. The weather was perfect and usually around 30 degrees C during the day. Towards the end of the two weeks a few clouds but still warm enough to swim and sit on the beach.
The villa is in a quiet area which meant no problems with privacy. It felt like we were borrowing someone's home. Everything we needed, plenty of space and very clean.
We hired a car which we would recommend. The nearest beach (extremely close) is quite stoney but Agathi Beach is wonderful and maybe a 15 minute drive away.
There are two big supermarkets on the main road at either ends of Afandou.
We saw three restaurants on the beachfront, the fish restaurant - we didnt try as we didnt see many people in there, a small roadside cafe on the beach which we also didnt try but which during the day was always popular, and a fast food restaurant near the children's playground. We did try this one evening and would not recommend it. The food was ok but half way through our meal the manager and another equally large man began a very heated argument. A local policeman failed to separate them and left and so we decided to leave our unfinished meals and go too. They clearly didnt care that they had customers a few feet away from their argument. There are several really nice restaurants in the village, in particular one opposite the bars in the town square. Very friendly and excellent food.
We felt the villa was ideally situated, in a quiet area but easily driveable to Falaraki, Rhodes, Lindos, several other beautiful sandy beaches and the airport and we would have no problem with recommending a stay.

“perfect location, wonderful villa, couldn't fault it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

went with family, kids aged 12 and 9, plenty of space at the villa, but it still felt homely. it really is five mins walk to the beach and the hotel pool, which is really nice. a perfect location, quiet with just the right amount of people around. we had a wonderful time and I would certainly stay here again if I came back to Rhodes. I can't believe there are better places to stay within this price range.
