Filoxenia Villas are the 1st and brand new, luxurious creation of a Greek family, who is committed to sharing the good life, shining sun and unforgettable moments. Andreas Anastasiou, father of the family, had a dream to make tourists experience Greek hospitality, while enjoying the best part of Rhodes. Villa Agnes & Villa Alex are both named after his children, the most important part of his life. Each Villa has its own color codes, decoration, style and unique personality based on the family's personal taste.
"Hospitality" is the official translation of filoxenia, but it doesn't adequately describe it. Filoxenia (φιλοξενιά, say: fee-lohk-sen-YAH), that literally means "love of strangers," is a generosity of spirit, a joyful kind of the-best-of-what's-mine-is-yours attitude in which Greeks take great pride as a defining attribute. Filoxenia is the reason strangers walking by may find themselves invited to a Greek family celebration. Filoxenia is the reason obviously lost tourists may acquire a volunteer tour guide. And filoxenia is the reason that guests in even the poorest Greek home will certainly find themselves presented with the best of whatever food is on hand - from the simplest cheese, bread, and olives, to many dishes created as though from air.

Don’t look any further!!!
I’ve stayed in a Villa on Rhodes before, but this was AMAZING! We made a wrong turning on the way from the airport and it took a lot longer than anticipated to get to the villa. Andreas was waiting for us and we felt terrible as he must have been there for ages, but i’ve never met a more relaxed man, he wasn’t bothered, sat us down with a cold drink and recommended a few restaurants to try. We immediately relaxed into our stay!
Definitely didn’t want to come home!
Could not be any better!
Where to start? We stayed 2 nights (3 families) and as it turns we could not have made a better choice. The owners (Andreas & Olga) are genuinely nice people. The pro photos rarely reflect the reality but in this case they do!
We had shopped a bit on the way to Gennadiou (abt 45 mins from Rhodes central), but as it turns out we did not need half of the stuff that we bought! Andreas greeted us with freshly made cocktails with fresh mint from the garden and showed around the place. It has everything you can possibly think of (+more). Even BBQ and the charcoal, next to the herb garden! what a dream.
The villas are in a quiet location and Rhodes is not that big. Well, if you are planning on partying every night and getting home, this is probably not the best choice for you. But to relax and explore the island (with kids like we did) it is ideal. Nice beaches within 10 mins walking distance, windsurfing paradise “Prasonisi” just around the corner, Lindos a 10 min drive… Just rent a van and you are living a 5 star dream.
Words cannot express how nice the villa, the garden, the pool and most importantly the hosts are. We will definitely return and would highly recommend to anyone wishing to explore the island and have a classy holiday!
We have holidayed in many villas, and this one is one of the best by far.
From the lovely genuine warm welcome we received when we arrived this whole experience was a delight.
The villa is in a lovely quiet part of Rhodes, but with plenty of delicious restaurants within a 5 minute drive. A stunning view over the sea from the two front bedrooms is a great start to any day.
Every room is beautifully presented, and everything you could possibly need for your stay is here already (toiletries, pool towels, hair dryers, etc..).
The gardens are lovely, and the pool large and clean (even if it does take your breath away when you first get in..!).
You get a constant breeze here, sometimes very windy, but that is nice that it takes the edge of the summer heat.
We rarely holiday in the same place more than once, but all in our family said they would love to return to Rhodes and this villa.
A car is essential, but it means you can explore easily what this wonderful island has to offer.
Olga and Andreas are wonderful hosts and make the booking and arrivals process seamless.
I would 100% recommend this villa if you are looking to holiday in the south of Rhodes.
Casa fantastica tale e quale alle foto viste
Εξαιρετική φιλοξενία και εξυπηρέτηση!
Che dire… di meglio non ci si poteva aspettare! La villa è tale e quale alle fotografie: meravigliosa e dotata di ogni comfort, per non parlare dei proprietari Olga e Andreas che sono stati davvero ospitali e attenti. Siamo arrivati di notte e abbiamo trovato nel frigo deliziosi cocktail e tutto il necessario (dolcetti compresi) per la colazione del giorno dopo. Ci hanno viziato anche nei giorni successivi con dolci e frutta fresca. La villa ospita comodamente 8 persone avendo 4 camere da letto matrimoniali (1 al piano terra e 3 al piano primo) e la zona giorno viene completata da due spazi esterni dotati di tavoli e sedie (uno verso l’ingresso e uno verso la piscina). La cucina ė completa di tutto e super attrezzata e all’esterno c’è un barbeque per le grigliate e un’aiuola con le erbe aromatiche. Al piano superiore c’è una bellissima terrazza con la vista sul mare forse poco utilizzabile a causa del vento… però fare l’aperitivo al tramonto è stato davvero unico. Bella la piscina dotata di comodi lettini, doccia esterna e vari giochi gonfiabili incorniciata da un bel giardino curato (ma quanto è soffice il prato?). La villa si trova a 5 min a piedi dal mare dove si possono trovate lunghe spiagge di ciotoli poco affollate. A 5 min anche il paese di Gennadi in cui si può trovare un pó di tutto, super market, fruttivendolo, panetteria, farmacia… Scendendo verso sud si arriva a Prasonisi in 20 minuti mentre nella direzione opposta si raggiunge Lindos (suggestiva l’acropoli illuminata di sera ed è molto romantico cenare sulla terrazza di qualche ristorante, bella la baia ma decisamente troppo affollata, non voglio immaginare come sia ad agosto). Una vacanza davvero piacevole e rilassante… un grazie infinito ancora ad Olga e Andreas… ci avete fatto sentire come a casa!
We stayed at Filoxenia Villas in late September as a group of 8 friends. The villa was lovely, modern and clean. One of the nicest we have stayed in. Andreas met us on arrival with a welcome drink and to show us around – he couldn’t do enough for us throughout our stay.
The pool is very large and there are 6 sunbeams – as there was 8 of us Andreas kindly borrowed 2 from the couple staying in the villa next door (which him and Olga also own).
The villa is a fair way from the supermarket and the local town – this suited our group well as we were focused on enjoying each others company. Having a car is advised although we didn’t have a car and used local taxis to get around. Andreas gave us a list of local places to eat and the food was delicious – one evening the restaurant owner gave us a lift back to save us booking a taxi!
Overall, we had an amazing trip and highly recommend.
“Прекрасная вилла, ухоженная территория, чистый бассейн. Дом оснащен самой современной техникой и все необходимым для комфортного пребывания. Очень гостеприимные хозяева!!!! Просто умнички!”
“We werden zeer gastvrij ontvangen. Het huis is mooi en heeft ruime voorzieningen (2 goede badkamers, ruime en comfortable slaapkamers, een rijk uitgeruste keuken). Het huis ligt lekker rustig maar er zijn voldoende stranden in de buurt. Daarnaast heb je de beschikking over een schitterend privé-zwembad dat erg schoon en goed onderhouden is. Het is ons allemaal erg goed bevallen!”
“Mooie nieuwe villa met alle voorzieningen. Goede ontvangst met reeds gevulde koelkast en attenties tijdens verblijf.”
