At this trip, we were looking for Privacy, peace and nature. We asked Greece experts Tom & Ella and they recommended the island of Karpathos to us. An absolute hit, because here on Karpathos there are small stylish hotels and luxurious villas with equipped with a private pool and fantastic views. We chose Karpathos Hotel Lux View Villas and Suites [ad] and enjoyed our time there so much.
The owners and operators of Lux View Villas on Karpathos provide you with all the important information about your stay, such as grocery shopping, restaurants and taverns, even before you arrive.
We made our way to Karpathos by ferry from Rhodes. The ferry arrives in Pigadia in the southeast of Karpathos. From there it is about twenty minutes to Lux View Villas and Suites. Of course, you can also travel directly to Karpathos by plane, for example from Salzburg or from other places in Greece. Allow about 40 minutes from the airport in the south of Karpathos to the Lux View Villas and Suites.
On Karpathos, there is actually only one ring road that leads around the mountainous island. Again and again serpentine roads slope down to small villages or beaches. This is also the case with Lux View Villas and Suites and the small coastal town of Kyra Panagia. The view from the road is really breathtaking and gives a little taste of the beauty of the bays around Karpathos.
Lux View Villas is one of the most beautiful accommodations on Karpathos - absolutely quiet, in full sun until late afternoon and relatively sheltered from wind - the three villas and two (soon four) suites are settled above the wonderful bay of Kyra Panagia, Karpathos.
The distances are not far. The winding roads do not allow to drive too fast, so it takes some time to get from one place to the other on Karpathos, but always with a fantastic view.
It takes about three minutes by car from the Lux View Villas to the Bay of Kyra Panagia, about 15 minutes to Apella Beach and about 25 minutes to the starting point of the Kali Limni hike. The lagoons of Lefkos are about 40 minutes away on the west side of the island. Allow about 50 minutes to reach Olymbos in the north.
This accommodation on Karpathos consists of four suites and three villas, all of which have a very similar open structure. The design inside the villas is very open. All other rooms are connected through the open concept, which gives the accommodation a very bright and warm touch.
The kitchen is equipped with a refrigerator including freezer compartment, oven, stove, cutlery and dishes. After arriving on Karpathos we recommend to go grocery-shopping and stock up on a basic set of groceries, because there is almost nothing to buy in Kyra Panagia. There was a small mini mart, but it was closed.
In our opinion, the highlight of Karpathos are the world-class beaches on this Greek island.
There are two absolute dream beaches within walking distance of the Lux View Villas. After a 20-minute walk you will reach Kato Laki Beach and Paralia Kato Lakkos, two very little visited insider tips. Both are really gorgeous bays - to be honest, we've only seen very few beaches that we liked better. The well-known, livelier Kyra Panagia Beach is only a three-minute drive away. It is around 20 minutes on foot.
The other beaches on the island, the wonderful little idyllic villages or the imposing Kali Limni are also beautiful and worth a visit. You can find out more about this in our Karpathos travel tips..
We enjoyed our time at Lux View Villas and Suites so much that we are already making plans to return to Karpathos - to Tina and Manolis. A very untourist island with world class beaches, incredibly delicious food and an absolutely relaxed atmosphere. Lux View Villas is an outstanding accommodation with a lovely design and everything you need to have a great time.
