A stay at our detached private villa in Peyia,Paphos is highly recommended for a holiday that you will remember forever. Some villas claim to have nice views, but this one is arguably the best in the whole area, absolutely breathtaking! Our villa is well equipped for all the family and comfortably sleeps six. The pool is 8x4 metre infinity type, and is set in a large terrace with BBQ, with a lower separate terrace below. It has a lovely thatched cabana for some welcome shade during long hot summer days. There are sun loungers, outdoor dining table and an outdoor shower. The garden is very large and fully landscaped with palm trees, bushes and flowering shrubs. The villa is private with its own drive and ample parking You can watch the sunrise over the mountains and set over the sea, as there is nothing but the blue sky to block the view. Its located in a peaceful area at the edge of Pikniki forest in a quiet area above Peyia. Full central heating for those out of season holidays

Villa Marcos Cook Family Holiday August 18
Villa Marcos was perfect for our family holiday with its scenic views from the mountains looking over Coral Bay & Pathos town.
The villa is well equipped for a family of 6 to stay & all the facilities required to entertain the children.
You have the wonderful Coral Bay beach only a 5 minuet drive away which a safe clean environment to relax & enjoy the sunshine, Shops all within a short drive & the lovely village Kathikas with some lovely restaurants to relax in the evening if you do not wish to cook.
I would happily rent Villa Marcos again as my family enjoined their time spent here this summer with my youngest daughter spending most of her time chasing geckos in the ample front gardens.
Car hire is essential.
Wonderfully relaxing holiday at Villa Marcos!
Spent 10 days at Villa Marcos during July 2018. With 2 double bedrooms, a twin bedroom, 2 bathrooms + downstairs WC there is plenty of space for 6 people. The large open plan lounge/kitchen diner is very pleasant. Fitted with modern appliances and utility room + UK tv, radio, and hundreds of downloaded movies to hand there really is everything you need. The villa really is special due to its fabulous location and wonderful views, just sitting in the sun, with a cool glass of something, enjoying the uninterrupted view of Peyia and Coral bay was heaven! The pool is clean, well maintained and treated 3 times during our visit. A cooling night time swim under the stars highly recommended!
Its secluded location allows for almost total privacy with no other properties directly overlooking the villa, but it means that a car is a must, the directions to the villa are generally quite good, but I found it easier not to turn into Peyia at the Coral bay island (opposite the Buy & Sell estate agents) but to continue straight on at the island, past the Philipos supermarket, on for a few kilometers and then turn right immediately after the Anesi restaurant, then just follow the road up into the hills past the Pykni forest signs, past the "panorama" signs and the villa is on right with the tall, thin fir trees lining the drive and the LED lights at the entrance gate illuminating the nameplate.
Good local supermarkets and a local Lidl make shopping for supplies easy and there are plenty of good places to eat out, can recommend Trattoria La Vigna (Italian), Phidias Taverna (Cypriot), Phuket and Chloes (Asian) and Kohi-Noor and Poppadums (Indian) and Paphos has plenty of places to eat to suit all tastes & budgets. If shopping is your thing then the Kings Avenue mall is good for retail therapy, but don't overlook the local shops/markets for niche bargains.
Cyprus is a beautiful holiday destination with friendly, welcoming people and this villa is a fantastic place to soak it all in, enjoy!
Stunning views. The landscape looked like a pot of glitter has been sprinkled over it at nighttime!
We are a family of two adults and two teenage children. All the rooms are extremely spacious and the infinity pool really gives the property the wow factor - we all love our stay, it was relaxing, and close enough to Paphos to speedboat, jetski and shop! Having a wi-fi connection was absolutely essential, especially with two teenagers, so there were no worries with our children feeling like they had no contact with the outside World!
The directions to the villa were absollutely brilliant, which was a great start to a lovely week. I was pretty daunted when reading the instructions for the alarm system, but they were as straightforward at the directions - no issues.
When we arrived at the villa it was a really nice touch to complimentary tea/coffee/biccies and milk available following the flight. The property was clean, as was the bedding and the towels. The only negative would be that the darkness of the tiles in the wet areas makes these spaces look a little dated, which is a shame as the rest of the property in and out is spot on. It was nice to have english plug sockets in the house and even hairdryers were available in each room. I believe each detail has been well thought out with this being a home from home. Go into the sideboard, the binoculars were a great find to look at the surroundings, and before you go to get any shopping check the cupboards as there may a few items there, we didn't check and I'm afraid we added to the already stocked chilly, balsamic vinegar and olive oil!
I would have no hesitation booking into this villa again, we really did have a lovely time.
Worth more than 5 stars.
Amazing place to stay if you want total seclusion. The villa had everything needed for the complete holiday.
The view from the terrace is to die for. A car is a must.
Amazing villa! The stunning pictures reflect the property exactly.
This was our first private villa experience but it definitely won't be our last. Villa Marcos is picture perfect! It's isolation suited us; however, we were only a 10 minute drive away from the coast. A car is a must.
The villa was immaculate and had everything in place that you could possibly need. The view from the terraces was spectacular!
Being our first villa holiday, we had concerns (media driven) right up until we arrived at the villa. However, Mark, the owner was extremely professional throughout; responding to our emails promptly and forwarding all the necessary information in a timely fashion. His directions to get to the villa from Paphos airport were invaluable.
In short, we can't wait to return to our little piece of paradise.
Stunning villa, highly recommended for a relaxing holiday!
Well what can I say, we were looking for a well equipped villa in a quiet location with a view! We definitely got this at Villa Marcos, it ticked all of the boxes!
It took our breath away when we arrived and saw the view out over the swimming pool, its simply beautiful.
We had a fantastic week here, the decor was tasteful, it was spotlessly clean and it had everything we needed.
Its very peaceful due to the location but it is close enough to Peyia and Paphos if you want shops/bars/restaurants.
We cooked on the bbq a lot and chose to stay in most evenings enjoying the nightscape whilst sitting outside playing cards.
We all felt so relaxed after staying here for a week and I have already recommended to friends. I certainly wouldn't hesitate in booking to go again.
We recommend car hire to fully enjoy the area. The beach at Coral Bay is only 10 minutes by car, for safe sandy bathing and water sports. Coral Bay has nightlife with shops, bars and restaurants until the early hours. Peyia village is only 5 minutes away for supermarkets, banks, pharmacy, bakers, takeaways and restaurants for all your immediate needs. Paphos Town and Port is approx 20 minutes away. The Akamas Peninsular for hiking, walking, mountain biking, wildlife and nature is approx 15 minutes away. The Troodos mountains for real scenery and skiing is one hour away. There is history and archaeology in Paphos and near Limassol, along with access to golf courses. Paphos airport is approx 30 mins drive to our villa, Larnaca is around 2 hours.
Other Activities: Troodos Mountains for skiing approx 1 hours drive (seasonal only)
