PLEASE SEE THE LINK BELOW CALLED 'About Owner/Property Manager' for Verified Reviews and Details on our Company as well as other properties we advertise.

Privately set within a walled courtyard, this 19th Century (1883) 4 bedroom stone built property has been renovated to a high standard and offers the most traditional Cypriot village holiday that one will find anywhere on the island. The property is situated just 500m from the village centre which now offers a good selection of restaurants and tavernas to suit all tastes, 2 bars (with sky TV) and a shop or 2 for groceries. Famous for its vineyards, the village is surrounded by vines and is renowned for the quality of its grapes. Many of the vines have been in the same family for generations. Two very famous wineries open their doors to visitors, so you can enjoy the winemaker's craft. The village is also home to a donkey sanctuary and a tourist information centre.

Extending to almost 170 square meters, the villa is characterised by stone archways, original staircases, bamboo and wood beamed ceilings, stone floors and grand double wooden doors to most rooms to name just a few. Modern conveniences include fitted kitchen with appliances, chunky leather sofas, Open fireplace, Satellite TV and DVD player, Wi-Fi, en-suite to most bedrooms, 8m x 4m private swimming pool, BBQ, dining tables and chairs for inside and out, air-conditioning and open fire.

On entering the driveway, you immediately sense the traditional Cypriot atmosphere within the courtyard. Access to the property is gained by double wooden doors in to a very large and open plan Lounge/Kitchen/Dining area which provides all comforts as well as many seating areas for relaxation and dining.

The Master Bedroom has a large king sized bed with double doors opening out on to the courtyard and swimming pool. It also has an En-Suite with shower over bath. Bedroom 2 next door is the smallest but is still most appealing due to the double sized four poster bed and skylight window. Bedroom 3 is also downstairs and features 2 single sized beds, access out to the courtyard and an En-Suite bathroom. Upstairs is the fourth bedroom with 2 single sized beds and en-suite Shower. Doors open out on to the courtyard and the windows give views to the mountain scenery and distant sea. A quaint and original staircase to the outside of the property leads in and out of this room, to and from the courtyard.

Outside, the courtyard features the swimming pool, parking, a covered seating area, sun loungers and BBQ. The traditional feel is completed by an old water well which sits in the corner. A supply of fresh drinking water is supplied to the property.

A welcome pack is included in the price. A travel cot and highchair can be provided free of charge upon request. Wi-Fi is included in the rental rate.

''We had a lovely holiday - we were a bit worried returning to the same place as not something we normally do, but it was just as good as we remembered. Property was as expected and was fully equipped - Theo was generous with a welcome pack. We liked Kathikas the first time which was what drew us there again - the villagers are friendly and generous in restaurants - and Sterna wines where we visited soon after we arrived to stock up with wine. Yiannis, also the cafe in the centre for English breakfast when feeling lazy ( excellent) in fact all the restaurants were good except Imogen's due to their take it or leave it attitude they gave us - very unusual for Cypriot people we had met. Allonis boat trip - as we had 2 young children advised the 5-8pm trip as cooler - added bonus of seeing sunset entering Latchi harbour. Thanks Steven for suggesting water park in Paphos on the departure day, our grandchildren ( 2 and 4) really enjoyed it ( we had been unable to arrange late book out as new people coming into villa) Theo was brilliant, bringing more wine when we said we had enjoyed what he had left for us, not obtrusive but quietly checking everything ok several times throughout our stay. We would like to visit again in the future. We would probably look to rent villas when planning a holiday as it seems to suit what we are looking for in a holiday. We are a always open to visiting new places that are not too busy..''.

Review submitted by Anthony from Southport (Submitted: 04/10/2016)

''We all thought the Villa was wonderful. Full of character, clean, quiet and very comfortable. Location also was great for us. Very quiet at night and a couple of good restaurants and a bar a short stroll away. We have visited Cyprus many times and had seen ‘ Constanteras’ on the Web a year or so ago. We holidayed in Cyprus last year and made a point of visiting Kathikas and the Villa for a quick look! This was a departure from our ‘normal’ choice of a good hotel in a popular resort. We have stayed in Paphos, Limassol and the Fig-Tree Bay areas of Cyprus and I think a hire car is essential at the Villa if the intention is to visit different areas and the sights of Cyprus. The beauty of the location is that one can enjoy the peace and quiet of village life, yet the resorts of Paphos, Latsi and Coral Bay etc are all within easy reach - if you have a car. Incidentally, we used ‘Elephant Hire Car’ and found them to be very good and prompt with delivery of the car to the Villa - and, a decent car!

We would recommend a visit to the Kourion Ancient Monument on the Akrotiri Peninsula (again, a car - or taxi is essential), Latsi beach and the harbour for lunch is a must! Troodos is always an interesting drive - love the winding road from the Ski Centre down to Kathikas!! For a good beer, Aphrodite’s Rock Brewery at Tsada, a short drive from the village towards Paphos, was an afternoon well spent. In Kathikas, Yiannis’ Tavern was excellent value and a lively, night on a Monday, with live performers and music. The Farmyard Restaurant just on the outskirts was also very good value with a huge choice (including Thai and Chinese if you want something different). We found a pier in a secluded beach near Polis, which was great for swimming and fishing. If you have an interest in wildlife and the birds of Cyprus, the beach here also contained many Turtle nests which was fascinating and we also saw a Kingfisher here. A visit to the market in the old part of Paphos is also a good trip. We would also recommend a visit to the local, Vasilikon Winery which has an interesting collection of old wine-associated machinery etc - and the wine it produces is very good also !! -

Very satisfied. Thank you very much for your service! Locally I’m certain that, if we did need anything, a telephone call would be all that was required.''.

Everything as expected!

  • 4 of 5

A truly excellent villa and plenty big enough for the three of us! Lovely village of Kathikas a short stroll away with all you need for shop and eat. Theo very helpful and checked in on us couple of times. Shame the weather up in the hills is some degrees cooler than in Paphos, so I would only consider coming back in warmer months than November.

We had to resort to blankets in the evening as the house was chilly, however this meant we spent more time at Yiannis tavern. 👍?.

We will return with a bigger party as I said in warmer months and get to use the pool.

Sehr angenehmer Aufenthalt

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren durchweg zufrieden mit dem Haus. Insbesondere gefiel uns die freundliche Betreuung durch den Inhaber des Hauses, der uns bezüglich Fragen zur Seite stand und das Haus auch mit einem ersten Care-Paket bestehend aus regionalen Lebensmitteln ausgestattet hatte. Im Dorf herrscht eine dörfliche Atmosphäre und die in wenigen Minuten fußläufig erreichbaren Tavernen waren gut und auch dort gab es eine ausgesprochen freundliche Bedienung durch Bseitzer und Mitarbeiter. Insgesamt ein gelungener Urlaub.

Ett fantastiskt ställe i en liten by uppe i bergen

  • 5 of 5

Ett hus som verkligen överträffade våra förväntningar. Jättefint. En mysig liten by där det fanns många bra restauranger. Däremot fanns det ingen ordentlig affär att handla mat i så jag rekommenderar att man har en hyrbil. Men för oss löste det sig ändå tack vare Teo, husvärden. Han var så snäll och skjutsade oss till en större affär vid ett par tillfällen. Det funkade jättebra att ta bussen till Coral Bay.

Kan varmt rekommendera Yannis Taverna, där vi var och åt ett par kvällar.

Rekommenderar detta hus till alla.

Villa Constanteras is situated just 500m (about a five minute walk) from the centre of the village of Kathikas. The village centre offers a good selection of restaurants and tavernas to suit all tastes, two bars (with Sky TV & Wi-Fi) and a good village shop for groceries.

As Kathikas is 600 metres above sea level, it has a good climate in summer a couple of degrees cooler than the coast with very little humidity.

Famous for its vineyards, Kathikas is surrounded by vines and is renowned for the quality of its grapes. Many of the vines have been in the same family for generations. Two very famous wineries open their doors to visitors, so you can enjoy the winemaker's craft.

Kathikas is also home to a donkey sanctuary and a tourist information centre.If you're a bit of an amateur anthropologist, Kathikas is an ideal location in which to observe the traditional Cypriot way of life and to live it yourself.

Kathikas' central location makes it the ideal base from which to explore Polis and Latchi, the Baths of Aphrodite, the Akamas Peninsula and the turtle hatchery at Lara Bay.

From Kathikas you can choose to visit a number of Paphos' best famous beaches.

Coral Bay is a short drive to a fully equipped beach with every type of watersports and diving.

Latchi has a delightful beach, and again a full selection of watersports. You can hire a boat at Latchi to explore the Akamas coastline. Drop anchor when you feel like it and swim or snorkel in the crystal clear blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea.

If you prefer a beach to yourself, try Lara Beach in the Akamas.

Even in the height of the summer its almost deserted.Kathikas retains and continues to re-instate its old world village character whilst encouraging selected new developments. The village square has a small taverna where you can enjoy a cool drink whilst sitting under the trees.

For fishing fans, the nearest reservoirs are Evretou and Mavrokolympos, whilst the nearest golf course is about ten minutes away at the newly refurbished Tsada golf course now known as Minthis Hills.
