Beautiful little getaway!

  • 4 of 5

The villa was a lovely for our home from home holiday. Situated 20 minutes from the airport, we were met by the owners when we arrived even though it was after midnight!

They provided a cot, highchair and toys for my 8 month old, which saved us bringing everything. The property was clean and had everything we needed for our 7 day getaway.

The location is quiet and remote which was perfect for us as I hadn't realized how commercialized Paphos is. As previous people have said a car is essential. It was too early in the year to use the pool but the gardens were beautiful to sit and relax in.

Would reccommend for a family holiday!

What a gem, a real home from home

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely holiday, our first to Cyprus. We arrived on a very late flight and to be met by Vic with the keys and a quick run down of the house was indicative of the care and attention to detail given to The Lodge and to those staying there. The house is around a 30 minute easy drive from Paphos airport.

The Lodge is very well equipped and extremely comfortable, a home from home. Everything has been considered to ensure your stay is as simple and stressfree as possible. The property is private with lovely views, enhanced by the beautiful garden and pool. We were travelling as a couple but can see this is clearly a great location for a family holiday. But for us as a couple it was a peaceful and relaxing place away from everything yet within a short walk from Tala village centre where we went for a drink and to eat on several occasions.

The kitchen has new, good quality appliances including a large fridge/freezer and we made the most of the kitchen and outside space. Outside the kitchen door there is a table and chairs where we ate breakfast on all but one morning and in the evenings we sat by the huge table on the veranda under the beautiful wisteria.

The Lodge is a short drive from Paphos - a car is essential to make the most of the location - there is a local shop in Tala with good supplies and there are supermarkets on the outskirts of Paphos which were an easy 10 - 15 minute drive away. We also discovered the Papantoniou bakeries - definitely worth a visit for their delicious cakes and desserts!

Vic and Hazel live along the road and are on hand if you have any questions, as is Melanie, but they don't intrude on your holiday at all.

It goes without saying that The Lodge is clean and well-maintained. Deborah was brilliant at responding to our enquiries during the booking process and making sure we had all the information needed before we arrived.

We loved Paphos and its mixture of old and new. You can step up a side street and find a cafe or restaurant with good, local food. We particulary loved Mother's Restaurant which is near the Paphos Mosaics - very welcoming with fabulous Cypriot food. The Paphos archeological site was so fantastic we went twice! We also recommend a visit to rural Fyti and the traditional silk weaving lady.

Everyone we met was warm and friendly. It has been a fabulous holiday and look forward to returning.

A beautiful and peaceful place, so clean!. very friendly people.well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the lodge very much, the house and garden and

second to none, lovely views and very private gardens, the caretakers are really diligent with their cleaning, very helpful and friendly. and the house itself is tasteful and cosy . comfortable beds and a super large bath, and a separate shower en suite, and a shower room and extra loo also. I can genuinely say - we loved our stay, and will definately visit again. there are lovely restaurants in Paphos and they have many supermarkets, inc Lidl. not far from the airport , but a car is a must . I am sure you will enjoy your stay as much as we did, should you decide to rent this fantastic holiday home. Wendy and Steve Brown

Our stay at The Lodge was everything we hoped for and more. The lodge lived upto its promise.

  • 5 of 5

The Lodge, Tala was excellent and was all we had hoped for and more. Melanie and Paul could not have been more welcoming and helpful. The accommodation in the villa lived up to and exceeded our expectations. The villa was spacious, airy and very comfortable even in the evenings when the humidity was at its highest.

We explored the village and had dinner in the square on a couple of occasions and found everyone friendly and welcoming. I would recommend that a car is an essential if you are staying at this property.

Best Holiday for Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

I am just back from one of the best holidays I have ever had. The Lodge is perfect for a relaxing get away. As a teacher I don't know why I have not done this before - away from the crowds and noise it was perfect. Being in the hills we had a pleasant breeze most days which made the heat of summer more enjoyable. The garden and pool were beautiful and we never tired from looking out at the sea from the veranda. The rooms in the Lodge I think are bigger than the photos suggest. The living room has a two and three seater sofa. There were more channels on the TV than I had a home and Mel was very good at explaining how you can watch catch up TV from the box. The bathrooms were very modern and clean ( and had mains sewerage which made things easier.) The drinking water tap in the kitchen was also another pleasant surprise. I really didn't want to come home.

We had an amazing holiday in The Lodge which is a beautiful property. Extremely well equipped with wonderful views and within easy reach of many interesting places. The Lodge is situated in a peaceful location is very private and not overlooked. It is the most relaxing holiday we have ever experienced. Many thanks to Melanie and Paul for their wonderful welcome and for rescuing us when we got lost on our first day. We would definitely like to return in the future. Lyn and son Scott.

The Lodge is a 10/15 minute walk from the centre of Tala which is 6 km from Paphos. There is a small supermarket in the village and three large ones within 15 minutes drive. We would recommend you hire a car for at least part of your visit as there is so much to explore around the island. In the centre of Tala is a 15th Century church and a little further up the hill is the famous St Neophytos Monastery. The Lodge is 3 km inland from the coast where there are plenty of watersports activities available, particularly in Coral Bay. If you prefer a quieter more relaxing beach, Coralia Bay is a little further on. Down in Kato Paphos Harbour is the ancient Byzantine Fort and nearby beautiful Roman Mosaics and Museum. There is plenty to do and see for all ages, from wine tasting tours to mini-golf, and the information pack at the villa will give you guidance about all that is available. Or you might just chill by the pool with a good book and a drink in your hand!

Other Activities: Skiing in Winter, 2 hours drive -check snowfall first
