Welcome to 'Villa Astro'

Set in the picturesque village of Argaka, surrounded by gorgeous beaches, tumbling mountains and sea views as far as the eye can see, Villa Astro is a dream holiday home for the whole family.

This stunning, spacious villa is set in a serene secluded spot surrounded by fields, palms and citrus trees. Argaka is a very affluent and tranquil location situated just outside the traditional yet vibrant town of Polis just North of Paphos.

After leaving the coastal road, the villa is easily accessed by a private road. The villa is at the end of this small road so nobody ever passes. All amenities are close by and there is a newly constructed promenade which assists with walking along the coastline in both directions. Several Tavernas as well as the beach itself forms part of a beautiful stretch of coastline going all the way to Latchi and the Akamas Nature Reserve in one direction and & 'Pomos' (the last village in the South of Cyprus) in the other. Santa Barbara Beach Bar is just 100 metres away from Villa Astro. It has swings, a changing area and sun loungers and does lovely dishes if you fancied a spot of lunch after a relaxing afternoon at the beach.

It's just a 5 minute walk (300m) to Liza's Place' which is a homely taverna with kind owners serving delicious Cypriot food. There is even an Irish Bar just 1km away which has Wi-Fi, entertainment, great food/drinks selection and overlooks the Sea from its veranda. They also run a kids activity club in the summer months.

The villa has four en suite bedrooms, sleeping eight (one or two infants extra would be permitted). A/C is throughout the villa and it complete with modern conveniences which include wireless internet, Satellite TV in the lounge (Premium channels including sports, music and cinema) & DVD player. The fully equipped kitchen features a gas hob and extractor fan, dishwasher, microwave and the washing machine is in the upstairs utility area.

The outdoor area features a 10m by 5m private swimming pool (with heating option), sun loungers and parasols, poolside dining area seating 8 shaded under a wooden pergola, pool table, table tennis court, kids play area and stone BBQ for alfresco dining. Upstairs features two large verandas, both offering spectacular views of the Mediterranean Sea, glistening coastline and spectacular mountains.

The pristine beach is a one/two minute walk away along with the lovely little beach cafe. All other amenities such as traditional Cypriot restaurants, bars, a bakery and two mini-markets, are also within walking distance or a very short car journey away. Villa Astro is a stunning property, set in a beautiful location, making it a very exciting new addition to our Paphos portfolio.

Review submitted by Mary from Huddersfield - (Submitted:11/09/2017)

''We had a lovely relaxing holiday. The villa was perfect for 3 couples. Spacious, clean and within walking distance of the beach and local restaurant. The weather was excellent.

Excellent villa - clean tidy and very spacious, especially the pool area. The Villa fulfilled all our requirements. The air conditioning was the best we have had - very quiet. Perfect location- close to the beach and an excellent restaurant. Nice walk strolling along the seafront or a bit more of a challenge we walked inland and were rewarded with some fantastic views. Short drive into Polis/Latchi.

Santa Barbara beach bar/restaurant was excellent and just at the bottom of the lane. Beautiful sunsets, free sun beds, fantastic food and service. The Old Town restaurant in Polis was a bit more expensive but well worth it serving quality food with a difference. Excellent communication from you, smooth and easy transaction. Would definitely book through yourselves again. The property manager was helpful and sorted out the couple of issues we had straight away. The mid week clean was done to a high standard.

Thanks for making the whole booking experience so easy''

Great family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic villa with plenty of space for our party of 4 adults and an 18,17,16, 14 year old plus an 18 month old!. Quiet location with only the sound of the waves in earshot. Outstanding views of the sun setting across the med, from one of the 2 balconies. Enough entertainment for everyone, with the digital TV, small playground, pool and table tennis tables, with comfortable sun loungers for the adults!

Very quiet location, although good quality restaurants within walking distance. In an ideal location... Perhaps a convenience store within walking distance would have been perfect. Santa Barbara - great food and would recommend booking a table next to the beach, to watch the sunset with a meal. The local butcher (polis) also worth a visit for bbq time at the villa, amazing choice of meats. Latchi boat hire and Quad safari in Latchi (think it was STM?) both amazing, with very helpful staff.

5 star service from the provider... No issues. Also 5 star locally, sat down with the owner George and had a great conversation with him. He also brought us fresh plums on our first day, along with 2 bottles of white wine. George was a pleasure to meet. On behalf of my family... THANKYOU.

Great high quality villa on the bay front

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 weeks Easter 17 and had a great time. The property is very high quality and extremely spaciou's. Would suit two families even as every bedroom is particularly large and has its own full bathroom. The pool is unusually large and the pool table and tennis table great to entertain. Maintained perfectly and spotless. Georgios and his wife couldn't do more to make sure we had a perfect break. The settling is great with the mixed sand and pebble beach of the sweeping bay just at the end of the drive, and a couple of really chilled put beach bar's and restaurants. Latchi is a great spot, there are shops in Polis town, and the Akamas and mountains for walking or days out. Recommended.

Villa Astro is situated on the coastline of Argaka, a beautiful and somewhat unspoilt Cypriot Village sandwiched between the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea and some spectacular mountains filled with pine trees.

Argaka is home to a number of traditional Cypriot restaurants, a beach bar and an Irish Bar as well as a bakery and 2 mini-markets. Many of these amenities are in walking distance of the villa or within a very short car journey. Travel a little way and you reach the bigger town of Polis.

There is plenty of activity to choose from, whether you wish to dine in one of the many restaurants, shop at some larger supermarkets, hire mountain bikes, quad bikes or just watch the world go by in the ambience of the traditional village square.

The nearby Latchi beach is renowned as one of the best on this side of the island and not as crowded as the beaches in and around Paphos itself (which can be reached by car in 30 minutes or under). Latchi beach is famous for its clear blue sea, soft white sand and a great selection of watersports which are readily available. Take one of the boat rides (or even hire your own) to the ‘blue lagoon', have a swim and/or snorkel, then come back to the pretty harbour/fishing port and have the famous ‘Fish Meze' where you will be served approx 20 dishes including some of the freshest catches of the day whilst watching the world go by.

For the more adventurous, you can enter the ‘Akamas' Nature reserve and go all the way round to ‘Lara Beach' famous for its turtles and wonderful beach. If it is unspoilt Cyprus you are looking for, this is a great area to visit. You may even venture into the nearby villages of Peristerona, Lysos and Miliou or further on to Kathikas (with its vineyards and wineries), Droushia and Panagia. Other fantastic scenery can be taken in at Cedar Valley and the Troodos mountain range where in Winter, you can even Ski!Paphos airport is 1 hour away by very good quality roads with English road signs. Visit Argaka and you won't be disappointed.
