About the property

Self-catering villa with private pool in a village near golf course

Villa Olivia is a traditional stone house with all the features of a modern and luxury home. The villa is set in a quiet little romantic village just 20 minutes drive from Paphos town. In the village there is a mini market, coffee shops, taverna, bank and post office. From the village square you can follow the lane for about 200 meters to come to villa Olivia. The perfect position of this self catering villa gives the advantage of full privacy and unobstructed village and mountain views around. At the side of the main entrance is the pool with a lot of space around for sun-loungers and chairs. The pool is at a perfect position so that it gets heated by the sun all day long.

The temperature is still good to swim at 10:00pm in the summer. Inside we have chosen everything to make your summer holiday unforgettable. Split units with both hot and cold air, fly screens on all the bedroom windows, double glazing and warm welcoming look, make Villa Olivia the perfect summer holiday rental for you.

our holiday!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I rented the villa for 1 week in June, we had a wonderful time.

We are frequent travellers but usually stay in luxury hotels, four seasons/hyatt ect so this was our first time renting a private villa, I had my doubts but I have to say I was totally bowled over once we saw the villa. The photos do not do it enough justice.

It was a true "Home from Home", everything you could possibly need, all fresh linen, clean & fluffy towels for everyday, soaps & bath creams. There was plenty of crockery, a bbq, we had a romantic candlelit meal by the pool one evening, the napkins, wine glasses & candles were all there for us to use.

This was the first holiday where we took no washing home!! the villa has a washing machine with soap powder for your use.

It was a fantastic villa with so many perks you would not believe.

There is a clean & comfortable car provided with the villa and they insure you before your arrival, you are collected from the airport and driven to the villa, so theres no stress involved in trying to find it!!

And finally a wonderful welcome pack for when you arrive, it had all the items that you would need for your first day, tea, milk, bread ect.

The villa was situated in a lovely little village, really quiet. The locals were very friendly and welcoming. If you didnt want to drive to paphos there is a great little bar in the village called Brookseys, run by an english couple, great sunday roasts, uk beers, bingo & other sports on sky tv.

We had a fab time and have already booked to go again.

Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

Just back from an amazing holiday at Villa Olivia. Marios and Louisa are a lovely couple and very helpful throughout, even from before confirming the booking to seeing us off at the Airport at the end. The villa is spotlessly clean, very comfortable and has everything you could possibly need. They have thought of everything and it's a real home from home. There is a small utility room with washing machine and dishwasher (the washing dries very quickly on the laundry rack outside in the sun - I will miss that at home!). We didn't use the dishwasher as there was only the two of us. The pool is lovely and would be great in the summer, but was rather chilly in April. We did venture in once, but then restricted ourselves to just sitting on the side with our feet in the water! The outside area is a real suntrap but has plenty shade if you want it. There is a BBQ area although we didn't use it, and some herbs and lemons in the garden that you can use. There were plenty sunbeds and chairs/tables outside. The location is very private and secluded, and apart from occasional sounds from neighbouring properties, you can sit in total peace listening to the birdsong and sounds of nature - absolute bliss! There are two excellent restaurants in the village and we can highly recommend both. The Taverna serves traditional Greek food as well as other choices, and the hosts Anita and Antonis are very friendly and informative about the island and local area. The villa is separated from the next property by a fence and we enjoyed our chats with the lovely Sri Lankan man who worked there. A real character and very interesting to talk to. We learned a lot from him and will really miss him. There was a good selection of books and maps of the island, and reading material avaialble. Also music, DVD's and an android TV box so plenty to watch and listen to. There are some games for passing the time if you want them. The car is a Renault Scenic family car which was an added bonus, and the airport pick up and drop off made the trip so much easier.

All in all, a great holiday and we were very sad to leave Villa Olivia, and hope to return one day.

Awesome .........

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at Mario and Louisa's wonderful home and even better seen last stay. Since our last visit, they have worked hard to add little extras to the property and make sure that it is perfect for your vacation stay. Love it, love it, love it and already booked next year. Would highly recommended to anyone looking for a holiday vacation in a rustic traditional Cypriot village with easy access to Paphos. Thank you Marios and Louisa for those extra touches to make our holiday special.

Herzlich und Authentisch

  • 5 of 5

Alles war sehr aufgeräumt und prima. Die beiden Besitzer sind sehr hilfsbereit und haben sich um alles gekümmert. Was wir vorfanden entsprach mindestens der Beschreibung. Super finden wir auch, dass man zu Fuss zwei gute Tavernen für den Abend erreichen kann. Wobei uns die Vineyard besser gefiel - da das Essen überzeugte und die Freundlichkeit überwältigend war. Leider gibt es am Ort nur wenig zu einkaufen - störend empfanden wir dies, das es am Morgen kein frisches Brot gab, man muss in eines der umliegenden Dörfer fahren. (Polemi 5 Kilometer).

Der Standort des Hauses liegt in einem Bauerndorf - das heisst die ganze Woche sind die Einwohner aktiv bei der Arbeit - das muss man einfach so akzeptieren. Was uns gehört hat, ist das permanente Hundegebell - irgendwo im Ort. Da kann wohl der Vermieter auch rein gar nichts dafür, aber man sollte sich schon damit abfinden können.

Sehr empfehlenswertes Haus und tolle Gastgeber!

  • 5 of 5

Wir (Ehepaar + weibl. Anhang, 44 bis 49 Jahre alt) durften im Sommer 2014 für 17 Tage die Villa Olivia bewohnen. Auf einer Skala von 1 bis 5 *: 5+ *für das Haus/Grundstück, 5+ *für Gastgeber, 5 * für das Auto, 5+* für den Transfer Flughafen/Villa Olivia/Flughafen. Ganz herzlichen Dank an unsere Gastgeber! Wir haben super tolle Tage verbracht.

Bei Ankunft am Flughafen Larnaka wartete Marios auf uns. In der Villa, nach ca. 1 ½ stündiger Fahrt vom Flughafen, machte uns Luisa mit dem Haus vertraut, von Marios erhielten wir eine Einweisung bezüglich des Autos. MobilfunkNrn. wurden ausgetauscht mit den Worten, dass wir Marios und/oder Luisa tatsächlich jederzeit bei Fragen/Problemen anrufen können. Das Willkommenspaket ausreichend für die 1. Abendmahlzeit + das 1. Frühstück.

Villa Olivia entspricht den schönen Bildern im Internet. Wirklich alles mehr als sauber und sehr nett hergerichtet. Alles da, was man täglich braucht.

Haus wurde einmal in der Woche gereinigt (Handtuch- u. Bettwäschewechsel). Luisa hat die Zeit dafür mit uns abgestimmt, weil sie uns nicht einschränken wollte.

Der Pool (ca. 3 x 5 m) wurde 2/Woche gereinigt. Marios kam dafür meist so früh und so leise, dass er sein Kommen nicht ankündigen musste

Schmale Gassen vom Dorfplatz führen zur Villa. Nachbargrundstücke vorhanden (Pool nicht einsehbar). Einige Hunde, Hühner und Hähne (zu hören aber nicht zu sehen), Läden mit frischem Fleisch/Fisch findet man in ca. 30 Min. Entfernung. Ein Besuch der Taverne in Letymbou ist unbedingt zu empfehlen! Jeden Freitag Livemusik. Betreiber/Personal dort sollten einen Preis für Sympathie/Freundlichkeit/gutes/reichhaltiges Essen bekommen.

Bezirk Paphos recht groß, Strände/Restaurants erreicht man nicht auf die Schnelle. Paphos hat in alle Richtungen viel zu bieten (Strände z.B. Polis und Lachi + Pissouri), Ausflüge in die Bergdörfer (Tagesausflug), Wasserfälle - etwas Klettern sollte man dafür in Kauf nehmen, um die wirklich tolle Natur zu erleben. Für Ausflüge abseits der asphaltierten Straßen kleinen Vierrad-Geländewagen anmieten. Die meisten Strände bieten die üblichen Wasseraktivitäten. Wenn möglich, kleines Motorboot anmieten (z. B. in Lachi). Man kommt so an Buchten, die man sonst kaum erreicht. Wir hatten 4 Std., lohnenswerter aber 6. Std. Anmietung Quad hat sich auch gelohnt. Wir haben uns von einem Ortskundigen begleiten lassen. Alles in Allem: Villa Olivia und der Bezirk Paphos sind definitiv eine Reise Wert.

Villa Olivia is built in a quiet spot of Letymou village 15 kilometers from Paphos. The area is mainly agricultural and famous for growing grapes. There are several wine factories which produce both red and white wine from grapes grown locally. Within 5 minutes drive is Tsada Golf Club, an 18 hole course, popular with both residents and tourists. Paphos forest is only 20 minutes away and from there you can drive through the cedar valley and reach the Kykko monastery at Troodos mountains. For those who like the sea can choose between the beaches of either Paphos 20 minutes away, or Polis -the aphrodite's baths 30 minutes. In Paphos town you can visit the Castle at the harbour, the mosaics, the tombs of the Kings, the ancient odeon and many more ancient ruins of the Paphos Kingdom.
