''The property is beautiful – stunning views, and we really enjoyed the pool after hot days of sightseeing. Great, quiet location. Marios Georgiou took us on a private tour of Northern Cyprus, and it was FABULOUS. Highly recommend. Also, the Cyprus Handicraft Service was wonderful – authentic Cypriot jewelry and art. There was a restaurant we really enjoyed – right on the sea – not the one next door, but very near – sorry can’t remember the name. We found a place to swim there in the Sea Caves area, but not till nearly our last day – wish we had known sooner. Jackie was great. And Steven, you were so very helpful in arranging everything, including our transportation. Hope this helps. It was a wonderful place to stay!''
Villa Kyparissos is situated just 1.5km from the centre of the village of Kathikas. The village centre offers a good selection of restaurants and tavernas to suit all tastes (Yiannis, Petradaki, The Farmyard, Imogens, Araouzos & Kyparissos being the main ones), 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 recent development of the stone cobbles in the main street makes it quite unique in its appeal to those who prefer the charm of an unspoilt village that could compete with the beauty of those in Italy.
For fishing fans, the nearest reservoirs are Evretou and Mavrokolympos, whilst the nearest golf course is about fifteen minutes away at the newly refurbished Tsada golf course now known as Minthis Hills.
