Overview

About the property

4 bedroom modern spacious countryside villa with large garden & vineyard

Designer-furnished stunning bungalow-style villa set in it's own acre of gardens and vineyard, offering seclusion and beautiful views across the hills and rolling countryside to the sea at Polis Chrysachou.

This unique villa sleeps 6 to 8, with 2 king bedrooms - one with its own patio doors, 1 twin room, and a further double room opening onto the patio with a very comfortable sofa-bed. The villa has 3 bathrooms, 2 of whichi are en-suite, and a very spacious open plan living/dining room with open fireplace. WIFI is available free of charge, along with a KODI TV box, lightning adapter, bluetooth speaker and iphone dock.

The kitchen and utility rooms have granite worktops throughout and are well equipped - American fridge/freezer, gas hob, combi-microwave, food processor, coffee machine, sandwich toaster.

The property boasts a large 9.5 x 5M private salt water swimming pool, with plentiful sunbeds, umbrellas, tables and chairs, plus of course a Cypriot barbecue for visitor's use. The large, well-kept, garden has fruit trees, figs, plums, peaches, tangerines, apples, dates, which visitors are welcome to help themselves to, and offers privacy with its surrounding hedges of cypress, pine and goldcrest trees.

As visitors say, it's home from home. You will find all sorts of things around that make it that way - light bulbs, shoe polish, screwdriver & random batteries in the cupboards, the odd bottle of booze and bits of food in the cupboard, cookery books, a multitude of paperbacks, games, music CD's, beach mats, cold box & freezer blocks, electric blankets for winter.

There are stand up fans available in each bedroom room for guests to use.

Whilst we do tell visitors there are glass patio doors, and various changes in level around the property, some people are still happy to bring small children. In this case, there is a travel cot available (though people usually like to bring their own cot bedding), a high chair and a car seat. There are also lots of pool/children's toys (which other people have left!)

About Sara Geyer

Sara and her partner Mick live in Essex in England, having both grown up in Surrey. They, and their now grown up children, have been visiting Cyprus for over 20 years, building Villa Faros in 2004 . Since then Sara & Mick have been renting the villa to a few clients each year, with some returning annually since then.

Sara Geyer purchased this villa in 2004

Why Sara Geyer chose Stroumpi

Stroumbi is a lovely small local wine-growing area away from the hustle and bustle & humidity of Paphos, Tala, Peyia and Coral Bay, though still easily accessible by car. To us, it was the perfect place to build a villa. Secluded, but surrounded by real life and wonderful people in the countryside.

The village is in the hills between Paphos and Polis, high enough to escape the intense heat of Summer but only 15-20 minutes drive either way.

Villa Faros was the first villa built in this lane, and to this day, whilst other homes have popped up behind, there are no villas blocking the view across the fields down to the sea at Polis, and across to the distant hill villages and Troodos beyond.

Villa Faros is different from the traditional Cypriot holiday home. It is light, airy and very spacious, with a modern, comfortable feel. It has its own private grounds overlooking almond trees and fields, it offers a peaceful spot as well as beautiful views.

What makes this villa unique

The view is so panoramic and the spaciousness so calming.

There are wonderful birds with beautiful birdsong in the surrounding countryside, or visiting each year. You can open the back stable door, listen to the birds and look out over vines, olives & almond trees.

There is equipment & various bits and pieces in the house you would have at home but often don't find on holiday - cold box, freezer blocks, shoe polish, shopping bags, matches and tealights, salt and pepper, oil and vinegar and the like.

The large salt water pool means no stinging eyes from chlorine. There are steps down at one end, and a ledge all the way around at (adult) waist level. There are underwater lights, and topical garden lighting for night-time.

There are fruit trees in the garden - peaches, apples, plums, lemons, figs - that offer an abundance of fruit when in season.

There is a central air-conditioning system, which switches over to heating in the Winter, as well as stand-up fans in each bedroom for guests' use.

Showers & baths have excellent water pressure!

Out standing villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in many villas in Cyprus but this one was our best yet. Villa was very spacious and well equipped for all our needs. Very clean on arrival has Panasonic views garden well maintained and extremely peaceful was able to unwind and relax from the hustle and bustle of every day life. We are already considering next year as we enjoyed our stay Stroumbi. Sara the owner very responsive to all our requests got back to us very prompt. Sara thank you for letting us stay at your wonderful villa hope to be back again soon

Amazingly peaceful villa in beautiful surroundings with fantastic private pool

  • 5 of 5

This was the best family holiday we've had so far. The bungalow was large and comfortable, with everything we could possibly need. The pool was a huge hit with our children, with a range of inflatables to keep them entertained. We also appreciated being able to cool down in the large pool as Cyprus in July is very hot!! We hired a car and were able to easily visit everywhere we wanted on the west side of the Island. Sara (the owner) was incredibly helpful and answered all my queries promptly before our holiday. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone wanting a truly peaceful, relaxing place to stay.

Additional pricing information

Fees No additional mandatory fees
Refundable Damage Deposit £250

Deposit for electricity consumption payable prior to arrival. A generous allowance is given for electricity per week, or pro rata, over which guests pay per unit of consumption, which we feel is a fairer way of charging than a flat rate for aircon/heating which may not be used.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

  • 100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
  • Service Fee fully refunded on cancellations that qualify for 100% refund.
