The deluxe and boutique standard to Villa Lindos Kalliopi is utterly intentional. Our philosphy is a simple one...why leave better at home to stay in something that is less nice?? Villa Lindos Kalliopi has its own distinctive style that we are very proud of.
With the emphasis on a casual elegance, both indoor and outdoors great effort has been made to furnish the villa tastefully. In every room beautiful, striking and luxurious furnishings offer the highest standards of interior design, using beautiful fabrics with rooms that are filled not just with contemporary features but also curios, architectural objet and the occasional antique. Those many touches ensure this villa remains Greek in style, but because Rhodes has such an eclectic mix of influences, you will also find many Italian touches - a tribute not only to the stamp Italy left on the island during the early 20th century, but also from the time the Venetians occupied Rhodes in 1082. Some Moroccan styling has also been used with some beautiful items sourced from Marrakesh. And with the coast of Turkey also glimpsed on the far horizon you will also find some exotic Turkish hints added to the mix and to the flavor created at Villa Lindos Kalliopi! The finished results are a convergence of styles that prove to be exciting, romantic, imaginative, lavish and supremely comfortable.
With independence and originality, the modern edge and innovative design enhances and maximises the magnificent views that are enjoyed from most rooms.
While some homes of this type can be monochromatic, focusing on one colour, here we have still retained those cool white walls traditionally expected in Greece - but what we have also added is the orange and earthly colour of ocher (that is normally reserved just for outdoor terracotta pots) to some of our interior walls. This colour has been achieved in the form of striking contemporary wallpaper. The white and the ocher colours form part of the three most predominate colours found in Greece, the third, blue, is also in abundance at the villa as we look across to the azure waters of the pool and to the sea beyond...
