|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
A House Called Alice is situated in the idyllic village of Mandria situated within easy reach of secluded Cyprus beaches and 10 minutes away from Paphos airport. The property is also 5 minutes away from two of the international golf courses in Cyprus and 15 minutes from the historic harbour town of Paphos. If you are not a golf fan or are a golf widow then you will enjoy the superb shops in Paphos and the many water and other sports.
The house is a newly built two bedroomed town house which sleeps 6 and has been furnished to a very high standard throughout. The ground floor consists of a large open plan living room and dining area with kitchen and cloakroom. The large patio doors leading out into the garden and the marble stairs leading up to first floor.
You can relax in the living area which has two comfortable settees, one of which being a bed settee. There is a satellite TV, DVD and CD radio system. The little children (or grown up children) can enjoy the play station or settle down to read or play board games. The ground floor also has air conditioning. At the back of the property is a hard standing for your hire car with a door leading into the property. The complex boasts an attractive swimming pool and the local beach is a short stroll away.
Mandria village has all the usual amenities, three traditional tavernas, fish and chip restaurant, cafe, a well equipped general store, post offiice and bank
It also has a bus service, but getting around Cyprus is so easy a hire car is highly recommended.
Arrived home on Monday sadly, tried to rebook the house for September but it's fully booked. This was our second stay in the house it's perfect in everyday, close to beach close to Town the Airport just a few kilometres away and around 20 mins to Paphos so for us absolutely perfect. The house is well equipped has everything you need washing machine, dishwasher everything works perfectly so all in all its home from home. Shirley and Barry (owners) reply promptly to emails and any
questions you may have. Well worth a visit.
When we arrived at A House Called Alice we found the accommodation to be spotlessly clean, there is everything in the house to have a lovely home from home holiday, beds are really comfy, quality furnishings and a nice hot shower. The whole set up of the house is very usable and spacious. The area is unspoilt, not far from the beach and suited us just fine. There is also a great supermarket not far away, after leaving the village of Mandria if you turn left onto the B6 it's just a short way down the road, great bakery, fresh butchers (can recommend the steak) and they also have a good selection of wine. Mandria is an unspoilt Cypriot village, it has a local shop, post office, fish & chip shop, bars & restaurants. I would recommend hiring a car as there are lots of places to visit, the Troodos Mountains are spectacular as well as the village of Omodos which is old Cyprus at it's best, a must is to visit the monastery & the Dempsi Glass shop, where beautiful hand blown pieces can be seen, the owner is very friendly & happy to chat whilst you peruse his work with no pressure to purchase. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at a House Called Alice, Barry & Shirley are very approachable & respond very quickly, I would definitely recommend this accommodation.
A lovely weeks stay in a house called Alice. It had everything we needed and more. The owners were prompt in replying and provided accurate information. The location was perfect, not far from the beach and close enough to the lovely village. A car is recommended. Would fully recommended A house called Alice, it was home from home with fantastic weather
A great house in a quiet location at the rear of the village. The house has everything you needed and more besides. I travelled with my husband, 2 teenage sons and father, the property was spacious enough to allow areas for us to all be together or if quiet time was needed it easily accommodated. We have an issue with the air conditioning, an engineer was with us in hours after contacting the property manager, fantastic service. The village although small has a shop, restaurants and bars within easy walking distance so no need to drive in the evenings if you don't feel like it. The drive to Paphos or Coral Bay is easy and short if you require more variety. The location of the property is great for exploring Cyprus as it is just off the main road and close to the motorway. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this property.
A house called Alice was a lovely place to stay for our week in Cyprus. Not only was there a loaf of bread and a bottle of wine waiting for us when we arrived but there were plenty of DVD's and games to play for our down time in the villa. The whole house was clean and tidy and there was plenty of space. It was so helpful that the villa has an iron, ironing board, washing machine, a fan, a hairdryer and towels which meant that we did not have to pack so much. The house is in a good location with only a 5 minute walk to the centre of Mandria where we spent most evenings which has a shop, some restaurants/tavernas and a bus stop.
I didn't want to say anything negative but the only recommendation I would have is to put air con in the second bedroom upstairs. The master bedroom and the downstairs area have air con but trying to sleep in the second room was very difficult and I must say I did sleep downstairs on the sofa most nights because the heat was making it very difficult. In saying that I had many DVD's to watch on my sleepless nights!!
I would definitely stay here again next time I am in Cyprus.
A House Called Alice is a lovely relaxing place to stay. It was exactly as described and was very clean and well maintained. The sea is within easy walking distance of the house, perfect for those early morning strolls. Mandria is a lovely village and the well equipped village is only a five minute walk away with its lovely restaurants which is where we ate most evenings. The owners provided excellent service especially when we lost the keys to the house on the first night. We were able to contact them and a new set was delivered to us within half an hour. We would have no hesitation in recommending this lovely holiday home to our friends and relatives.
Paphos is just a short drive away with it's historic harbour with medieval fort, good shops, bars, restaurants and exceptional night life. Paphos also has an amazing open market where you can while away a few hours.
If you are in to archaeology visit the Tombs of the Kings, with it's impressive under ground tombs. Also near the harbour is a mosaic site which contain floors from roman times. Other activities in Paphos are go karting, horse riding, diving, bowling, boat trips and many more.
There are two excellent golf courses within 10 minutes of the property being Secret Valley and Aphrodite Hills, both are open to the public but if you do not play golf they are well worth a visit for a drink or meal as the scenery is absolutely stunning and the food is excellent.
There are so many interesting places to visit. Take a leisurely drive to Troodos where you will pass many small villages, vinyards and a hoast of farming communities.
