The owners were incredibly helpful prior to our holiday and during. Nothing was too much trouble and this made our stay so relaxing and stress free. A home from home ( with a pool, how fabulous and amazing views) with everything we could wish for. Our neighbours were very welcoming and helpful, the local restaurants, in particular, Café Aman served the most delicious food and the local butchers in the next village sold fabulous steaks much to my husbands delight. BBQ's most nights to the sound of nature around us. What could we want. We also found a great beach (Pervolia) which was clean and quiet. A thoroughly enjoyable holiday, thank you Steve and Carol, we loved it.

It was obviously kitted out as a home, rather than just a rental property, and it made a great base for our holiday. The pool, though not big, was a brilliant feature that, - while temperatures were still in the mid-thirties, - was an essential. The area around the villa is, by Cypriot standards, very green, and there is a wonderful view out towards Episkopi. We loved the place, and would recommend it to anyone looking for a peaceful location.
