a very nice place. In the beginning there were some problems with the pool but after a telephone call the owner took care of it. Good service. Very friendly. Quiet place, very beautiful house. Maybe a bit old equipment (toaster, washing machine, dishwasher, ...) but it does the works on a holiday... Overall impression : very charming and very friendly owner.

Kallepia is a village built 500m above sea level and situated 13km northeast of Paphos. This rustic and picturesque village enjoys commanding views of the Troodos Mountain range and Mount Olympus. Its narrow winding lanes enjoy a wonderful cool climate even during the summer months. The village has amazing architecture comprising mainly of stone built houses and the stunning craftsmanship of the village includes wonderful pitchers, clay pots and the marble rocks which you will find at the Monastery of the Holy Cross. The Old Church of Ayios Georgios which is a well known tourist attraction is surrounded by plantations and vineyards.
The villa is located within walking distance of the village, since Kallepia is very much a traditionally rural community you will not find it overcrowded with expatriates or holiday makers. In fact as far as amenities are concerned, the village favours a traditional coffee shop, a couple of restaurants and kiosk. Many more facilities can be found in the neighbouring village of Tsada within 4 kilometers of the villa. Golf enthusiasts will be pleased to know that Minthis Hills Golf & Country Club is only 3.2kms away with its stunning fairways. Secret Valley Golf Course, Aphrodite Hills Golf Course and Elea Golf Course are all within approximately a 20 to 45 minute drive.
If you are interested in the history behind wine making or just like the taste of wine then Kallepia is in the heart of the Vouni-Panagias-Ampelitis wine route. It is said that wine is not a new story to Cyprus and recent archeological excavations which have been undertaken on the island have confirmed the thinking that this small tranche of earth has been producing wine for almost 5,000 years.
Just 13km away is Paphos Town which was once the capital of the island and is now included in the official UNESCO list of cultural and natural treasures of the world's heritage. The remains of villas, palaces, theatres, fortresses and tombs mean that the town is of exceptional architectural and historic value. The well preserved mosaics and the Tombs of the Kings are probably the biggest cultural draw with further archaeological discoveries continually being made. Pano Paphos on the cliff is the main administrative centre and residential district while Kato Paphos, by the sea, is the main tourist area built around the harbour and medieval port. In Kato Paphos you will find the municipality beach at Yeroskipou offering both sand and grassed areas with sunbeds and umbrellas available for hire and a luna park for children. Paphos Zoo is found in the area of Sea Caves closely located to Coral Bay.
