Where to start? Upon arrival we were met by the housekeeper Lucy, her husband, mother and two sons who showed our party of 10 around the estate with its tennis court, hot tub, barbecue area, extensive garden with fruit trees and vines and water course with resident terrapins. Five immaculate bedrooms sleeping 11 people total, 7 bath/shower rooms, utility room, gym area and large lounge/dining room backed up by large well equipped kitchen. There is a large swimming pool with plenty of sunbeds for the sun worshippers and shady areas for those with fairer skin.
The property is located at the western end of town , two minute walk to the beach and the shops/bars/restaurants all within a five minute walk and as mentioned in a previous post Nikos family restaurant is a must not just because it's run by Lucy's family. Lucy cannot do enough for you,she cleans everyday with fresh towels also provided daily,she left us wine ,ouzo, fruit and was always available for any queries we may have had. Roda is a lovely little town with plenty of restaurants and bars but not full of "Brits abroad" and the local people are very friendly. As a family we would definitely return to Roda and the Villa Jolie..........oh and the weather helped
The Jolie Villa was one of the best places we have stayed at for a family holiday and was just perfect for our family of 10 including two three year olds. Its really huge and spacious with plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms including a whirlpool bath and sauna, a really great sized swimming pool and the plus additional features were the tennis court and the hot tub.
The location is ideal as its just 2 minutes walk from the beach and is bang in the middle of all the local shops and amenities. We didn't need the use of a car or taxi as we were able to walk to all the restaurants and shops with ease. The villa is really well maintained by the wonderful housekeeper Lucy who was so wonderful and friendly and kept everything in order at the Villa. There was no shortage of anything including bedding, kitchen amenities and there was so much space for everyone.
Above all for someone like me who has a thing about cleanliness, the high level of cleaning was astonishing as the pool, garden and all other in house areas were kept to the highest of standards before and during our stay.
George the owner was so helpful before and throughout the stay with any queries and the booking was made with no problems.
I haven't stopped raving about this villa and location and if given the opportunity I will definitely go back again. It was perfect for my parents 70th birthday celebrations and child friendly too.
Thank you Lucy and George for a memorable and fantastic holiday...
Our second visit!! 2 sisters and their families a party of 10 in total.
Thanks to Lucy and her boys we have had a spectacular visit once again with all the different things on offer in the villa .We also enjoyed the East coast cruise again which is a must do activity and all the young ones had a fantastic scuba diving experience - we also had a great day out to Aqualand.
Our visit to the Nikos taverna on the Greek night was one of the highlights where once again the food was fantastic and the entertainment of music, dancing and plate smashing!! great fun.
My husband and I enjoyed our 18th wedding anniversary there and Lucy brought us a fantastic Ice cream cake to celebrate it which was devoured by our party of 10!! and very much appreciated.
Thank you so much all of you we are very happy and relaxed now.
We will be back.
