About Peter and Sue Orton

I am a twice retired teacher, still teaching occasionally, with wife Sue retired in 2014 but continuing on supply.

We have lived in the same house in Sutton Coldfield for nearly 30 years but intend to take advantage of retirement and spend more time in Pissouri in the future.

Peter and Sue Orton purchased this villa in 2006

Why Peter and Sue Orton chose Pissouri

Buying in Pissouri was pure fluke. We came across the area, almost by accident, during a visit in 2005 and immediately fell in love with it. We initially placed a deposit on a nearby apartment but changed our minds and lost the deposit after being introduced to 'Lysandra'. The deposit was well worth losing when taking into account the space and freedom we bought. It is situated in a quiet cul de sac and a 500 metre walk to the village square. The neighbours are British expats and all very friendly ensuring that we have a warm welcome on every visit.

What makes this villa unique

Sea and mountain views, beautiful sunrises over the Med, enhanced by breakfast on the patio. Shops, bars, restaurants and tavernas can be found in the nearby village square all offering excellent food and superb genuine Cypriot hospitality. A five minute drive takes you to the bay and beach for energetic sea activities or watching the world go by.

Again there are excellent eating places for all tastes and budgets. Not too far away there are other beaches at Melanda, Kourion, Avdimou and others.

The large towns of Paphos and Limassol are very accessible via the motorway and can both be reached in less than half an hour. An excellent base for access to all parts of the island.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We came back from Cyprus and stayed 10 days in the Lysandra house in Pissouri village.

We are a French family with two children and the house was perfectly suited for us, confortable, well equipped and spacious.

The village of Pissouri is very cute and perfect for visiting the rest of the island. Pissouri Bay has a beautiful beach 5 minutes away by car.

We very much enjoyed our stay in your house.

Car: recommended

The villa is located just a short five minute walk away from the traditional village square of Pissouri which is found almost exactly halfway between the main tourist towns of Paphos & Limassol. Access to both towns is by way of the A6 & takes about 20 to 25 minutes to either. The area, being situated 800 feet above sea level, offers full panoramic sea & mountain views. A 5 minute drive down the road is the picturesque resort of Pissouri Bay, which provides an extensive Blue Flag beach, a number of water related sports, several tavernas & restaurants & the prestigious Colombia Hotel & Colombia Beach Resort. Within easy reach are the championship standard golf courses at Secret Valley & Aphrodite Hills. As a contrast to the coast, the Troodos Mountains, with its spectacular scenery & many walks through pine forests can be reached well within a 2 hour car drive.

Pissouri is excellently located as a base to reach the numerous historical sites & resorts around Cyprus.

Other Activities: jet-skiing

Fabulous holiday

  • 5 of 5

The villa is great - a real home-from-home, with everything you could possibly need. With it's lovely high ceilings, the villa feels airy and spacious and the aircon is great for night time. We found there was a beautiful breeze most of the time, so only needed the aircon in the bedrooms.

The outdoor space is good - we spent evenings sitting at the table on the front terrace looking across the view to the coast and the back courtyard was good for sunbathing before going out for the day.

It is very quiet round here and made for a very peaceful and relaxing holiday. The communal pool is lovely and much of the time we had it to ourselves.

Pissouri is a great base to explore from. The village itself is very pretty and the square is lively in the evenings. There are some good restaurants here and in Pissouri Bay, which is very easy to reach from the villa. The only negative was that Cyprus doesn't really do vegetarian, just a token gesture.

I am sure we will be coming back here for another holiday!

Comfortable, peaceful, pleasant villa

  • 5 of 5

This is well placed for Paphos airport, being an easy drive of 20mins. A short walk to the village of Pissouri with an abundance of restaurants and bars. A short drive back down the hill to the local supermarket and petrol station and easy access to the motorway to explore further along the coastline. The villa was well stocked with all appliances although the "welcome pack" consisted of only , coffee and milk but there were a lot of items in the cupboard left behind by previous occupants which proved useful. Double bed was comfortable (didn't use 2nd bedroom). The information needs updating regarding the connection to the internet, and the TV is complicated (was it us?) but we were able to access these eventually. Neighbours are lovely, particularly the gentleman next door with his lovely dog "Eric" who was no trouble at all and very friendly. All in all we had a lovely stay in a beautiful part of Cyprus. Would recommend.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your review, Martin and the five stars. Your comments are much appreciated although, naturally, we are concerned that your welcome pack was not up to what we normally provide. I'm sure that this is a misunderstanding somewhere along the line and it will, of course, be rectified.

Toller Urlaub!

  • 5 of 5

Mein Mann und ich hatten zwei phantastische Wochen Urlaub im Ferienhaus von Pete und Sue. Alles war perfekt, nicht nur das Wetter...!

Eine komplett ausgestattete Wohnung stand uns zur Verfügung. Nur das WiFi-Netz war nicht besonders stabil, was uns dazu angeregt hat, viel zu lesen.

Der Strand in Pissouri ist wirklich schön, weil nicht so überlaufen. Und die Restaurants laden zum gemütlichen Verweilen ein.

Also wir können alles nur weiterempfehlen!

Vielen Dank!!!

Owner's Response: Many thanks for looking after our little home during your stay and we are so pleased that you had a good time. The wifi we have always found to present few problems but we will certainly look at it when we are out in Pissouri next week. Vielen Dank für Ihren Aufenthalt nach unserem kleinen Haus suchen und wir sind so froh, dass Sie eine gute Zeit hatten. Die Wi-Fi haben wir immer zu präsentieren einige Probleme gefunden, aber wir werden es auf jeden Fall schauen, wenn wir in Pissouri nächste Woche sind.

Lovely villa in a great village location

  • 4 of 5

Lovely villa in Pissouri. The owners sent some very useful information beforehand and provided contact information for the stay. The villa is a good size, handy for the village square, good restaurants, and the shared pool was a short walk up the hill. A very enjoyable stay, I would recommend this property.

Beautiful, home from home!

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely week in this property. The owner was extremely helpful with all aspects of our holiday, including information regarding car hire, restaurants, directions to the property etc. The listing was very accurate, and the property included more than everything you would need or want for the perfect self-catering stay. Our 2 year old daughter loved the fact that she could watch her favourite nursery rhyme compilations on the TV via the You Tube internet channel - an absolute god send for her parents :-) we would definitely recommend this property to anyone that is considering staying here. If we return to Cyprus, we would have no hesitation in staying here again. The views across the bay from the front of the property in the evening were so relaxing sat in the warmth with a glass of wine! Thanks Pete and Sue.
