About Brian Heade

Brian was born in Cardiff, Wales and Val in Hampton Court, Surrey. We have been living outside of the UK since 1980, and retired to Cyprus in 2008.

Brian Heade purchased this villa in 2000

Why Brian Heade chose Tsada

We built our main home in 1994, and later had the opportunity to purchase the plot in front of ours. So, we were able to build the holiday home in 2000, two levels below us, which enabled us to save our magnificent views.

What makes this villa unique

The benefit of the home, is that, Brian and Val live above the property for any local advice and problem resolutions. However, we do try to have minimal impact on the guests, and carry out the gardening and pool cleaning facilities when guests are not in residence

Excellent location for a quiet relaxing break

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing 10 days in the villa, the weather was kind and though they were not accustomed to visitors at this time of year Brain and Val made us very welcome. Heaters were duly supplied and were required at night but every morning we were able to enjoy breakfast on the terrace. The villa is very well equipped and Brian is on hand to provide help when required. The location is great for enjoying the peace and quiet, relatively easy to find with good instructions and well placed, far enough away from Pafos. We would consider visiting again.

Owner's Response: Many thanks to Mark and Carol for braving the Cyprus Winter! However, they were blessed with good weather during their stay, and gave us a new slant on catering for the cooler months. They were a pleasure to have as guests, and we look forward to seeing them sometime in the future.

The property was beautiful and well presented.

  • 5 of 5

This little house is a delight. Brian and Val have designed it beautifully and equipped it with everything you could possibly need on a holiday in Cyprus. To make it easier for you to use the house and make the best of your temporary home, there is an excellent folder of information and advice, covering every detail. Not only are all the tools, cutlery, crockery, pots, pans and cleaning materials there, but over forty reference books, leaflets, brochures and even current newspapers, magazines, in English were placed ready, enabling you to make the best of every minute of your stay. The weather during our October / November stay was really good, with only a few partially rainy days and even if we ha wanted to have a stay-at-home day, there were books, games and DVDs galore available for our enjoyment.

The furniture and furnishings aren’t just comfortable, practicable and well made, they are also really attractive and the floor rugs, pictures, paintings and ornaments are high quality, art pieces. There are lamps and occasional tables, mats, coasters and candles to add to the romantic, relaxing ambience,should you need it ! Sleeping, eating, cooking and unwinding are sheer pleasure here.

Not only is the house lovely inside, the outside areas have been equally tastefully and cleverly designed. The house has been positioned to take advantage of the superb views across the hills to distant Paphos and the sea beyond. Brian and Val are great gardeners and the range and variety of trees, shrubs and flowering plants is amazing. A feast of colour met our eyes from dawn till dusk. Here and there, extra seats were placed, and tables for eating at in comfort outside. The pool area is particularly attractive, with extra comfortable cushioned deck chairs and f lowering climbing plants around the sheltering walls. Scattered among the shrubs are beautiful mosaics and stone features to please the eye.

The wifi was available at any time, with a table and chairs placed ready in the upper garden area, where the signal was clear. It didn’t reach as far as the indoors of the accommodation, but could be used nearby at any time.

Cyprus has slightly different waste collection systems from the ones we were accustomed to, but no matter what we needed to find out, we had no problems once we had asked. Brian was always ready to help.

Owner's Response: Hi Jill and Andrew, A thousand thanks for your critique, which has been one of the most comprehensive that we have ever received. We are pleased that you enjoyed the mystique of Cyprus, which is probably a little bit more elevated than your home in the Shetland Islands, Scotland. However, this may not be the case, after our very informative chats with you both, especially, since you wrote the guide to the Shetlands book!! Let's hope we meet again, as promised, sometime in the future. Best Regards, Brian & Val

Relaxing Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect spot! Greeted on arrival by Brian who is a most generous host providing much needed refreshments! This villa is just what we had hoped for, away from the madness. The accommodation is lovely, there is everything you need and a lot of space for the two of us. The gardens and the pool area are just WOW! Many days spent soaking up the sun by the pool in total peace and quiet. Looking back at the photo's I wish I was still there! Brian and Val go out of their way to make sure you have all you need including very good recommendations for local eateries - take their advice it is worth it! All in all, a perfect holiday. This is the place to relax, unwind, read books, drink the local wine and beer and switch off completely. Thank you Brian & Val for welcoming us, you have a beautiful place.

Relax in beautiful surroundings,,

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely, well-equipped "mini-villa"! 1 Afroditis sits in beautiful gardens with a well maintained pool.. Owners are on hand if required and went above and beyond to help us the evening we arrived minus essential medication! The villa has panoramic views across Paphos and its elevation means that the temperature is slightly lower than sea level making nights comfortable and sleeping easier. We walked to the local taverna, The Fountain of Gerolakkas - freshly prepared local food, excellent value and friendly, welcoming staff. Take a break here for rest, relaxation and a taste of rural Cyprus.

Our third visit...

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to Brian and Val's villa; that in itself says a lot!!

I'm not sure that I can come up with enough superlatives to do it justice.

On arrival there was a gorgeous bottle of chilled rosé waiting for us and enough foodstuffs to ensure that we didn't have to go rushing off to the supermarket. *Note... Brian really does make exceedingly good jam (now there's a good catch phrase!)

The villa has everything we could ask for, a real "home from home"; and this year there were a few "updates" including a new mattress for the gigantic bed and a new shower surround. There genuinely is nothing extra that we could ask for.

The garden is so absolutely beautiful (and had a lovely new seating area). The pool is beyond the expectations of a villa this size... its BIG! New parasols around the pool area were a lovely additional to diffuse the bright, hot Cypriot sunshine and make those cold drinks stay cooler a little longer ;)

Yet again car hire was easily arranged with Andy Philips (a good recommendation from Brian & Val) and we even borrowed a jeep for the day to explore the Akamas Peninsula.

Steve and I made it our aim to relax as much as possible during our holiday... and this little villa with its stunning gardens, immense pool... a few cold drinks and a few hands of card games... made that aim an easy pleasure your accomplish.

Looking forward to visiting for the fourth time in 2018.

Alex & Steve x

How soon can we come back??

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 10 days at Brian and Val's villa and oh my goodness... We would move there right now if we could. The place is fantastic, we felt at home immediately. It is the perfect size for a couple, and has everything you need. The bed was very, very comfortable and huge! The place is also very clean. Brian and Val live in another (separate) villa, just above ours. They pop around when needed, or to look after the garden and are not intrusive at all. Although both villas share the same swimming pool, they left it to us 100%. They invited us to their place for a few drinks, and it was lovely to get to know them. Listen to the places they suggest you to go to, they are worth it! The villa is in a very quiet place and about 15 min from Paphos by car. Renting is definitely the best thing to do to visit the island and get around easily. There are some food stores within 10 min drive. There is no wifi in the villa. If you need some, you need to get closer to Brian and Val's villa to pick it up. It did not bother us as we were quite happy cutting off from the real world. You get free roaming data in EU now, but the network at the villa itself is quite weak as they are a bit high in altitude. The garden is simply beautiful, even just staying by the pool was perfect. Go there and give yourself some fantastic holiday memories, we will again as soon as we can. Thank you for having us!! Mahéva and Paul xx
