About Clare Rigler and Rosie Fenwick
Hi, We are Clare and Rosie. We have been great friends for over 20 years and approx 10 years ago decided to buy our first overseas apartment together. Clare lives in Hampshire and Rosie lives with her husband and son in the New Forest. As we both work in a customer facing environment, we know how important it is to give excellent customer service and we like to make sure that we give excellent service to our guests too. We try to think of everything you might ask and include answers in our website or emails that we send. We also try to include anything you might need in our apartments so that we make your holiday as wonderful as we can.
Clare Rigler and Rosie Fenwick purchased this Apartment in 2004
Why Clare Rigler and Rosie Fenwick chose Tala
We bought this apartment before it was built and we remember climbing over building blocks and teetering on the scaffolding to try to work out which of the apartments would have the best view - and we got it right! The views of the valley and the coast line below are just stunning by day and magical by night. Our balcony is enormous with a shaded area for our patio table and chairs and a sunny section for sun worshippers. You can watch your kids play in the pool from here or join them poolside. The village of Tala itself is small and unspoilt, still retaining the Cypriot way of life, yet has all the shops and restaurants you could need.
What makes this Apartment unique
It is in a brilliant position at the top of Tala and the square is just 5 minutes walk away. Again, we have to say our view - it is spectacular! If you read our testimonials on our website, you'll see that nearly everyone mentions it! In addition to all that we have told you in our advert, we have a wonderful lady called Anne Marie who looks after the apartment for us and will always be at the end of the phone should you need her.
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Our Holiday ,May 2019
We enjoyed our stay at Tala Hills 1, everything we needed was in the appartment and the views from the balcony were special. We did however find the uphill return from the restaurants a bit much for our elderly bones so after three attempts to walk we gave in and took the car down.
We are glad that you enjoyed your stay in our apartment and thank you for your feedback as previous guests have never mentioned this. You mentioned about your 'elderly bones' and we are not sure of your age, so we do hope that you found the lift from the car park to the apartment and the pool useful so you did not have to climb a flight of stairs. We also hope that you found the Artemis restaurant (one of our favourites) as it is approx. 100m away and on the same level as the apartments.
For future guests, there are 2 different ways you can walk along to reach Tala square. The one on the wider road and a much easier one that goes past Stamna's restaurant. There is also plenty of parking in the Square.
Nice place - both Tala and the apartment.
Tala is a close drive to beautiful beaches and to Paphos. The apartment is quite specious with a huge terrace with splendid view towards the bay. Well-maintained with all facilities you need during your holiday stay (lots of power adapters for overseas guests!). A walking distance to the centre of Tala with a couple of nice restaurants and bars.
We enjoyed the stay so much that we plan to return to Tala (and the apartment of course) again this year.

Nice apartment, easily accessible, lovely views, quiet, Tala village a stones throw from apartment. Would recommend to anyone
Thanks for doing a review for us. We are pleased you enjoyed staying in our apartment. Tala is such a lovely village to stay in.
great apartment with plenty space on terrace, ideal for exploring area.
Lovely short week, our only big disappointment was the very squeaky, hard twin beds in second room. I didn't have a good nights sleep all week. quiet complex, could have had pool to ourselves most days.
Holiday of a life time
The apartment was everything as describe. You was lacking for nothing. The balcony made it for us, you could lay on the sunbeds until sun set if you wanted or lay by the beautiful pool on the well supplied sunbeds.
The apartment was 2 miles north of Paphos in a quite
small village called Tala which had numerous restaurants, grocery store and even a charity shop.
You do need a car unless you want to rely on buses
but you will need one to get round this beautiful island
anyway. The owners were very helpful with travel instructions and numerous other things to make your holiday perfect. I would recommend this apartment without hesitation to anyone and I would refund your money myself if you wasn't as happy with it as ourselves.
To the the owners Rosie and Clare I would like to say thank you for allowing us to stay in your apartment and will see you next year
Thank you so much for your wonderful review of our apartment. We can clearly see that you loved staying there!. We are also pleased that you found us helpful as we do try to think of everything guests might like to have or know and we are just at the end of a phone/email if guests have any questions. We look forward to welcoming you back again next year.
What a lovely apartment, could not fault it at all.
We stayed in this apartment for 2 weeks in August with the family & had a great holiday.
As soon as we opened the front door you see this lovely spacious apartment & what a balcony so much room. Every thing is so clean & well equipped & is of a high standard & there is plenty of room for parking if you hire a car.
Had some nice meal in Tala square which has just been renovated we found the local people to be very friendly as well as the people staying at the complex, we will definitely be returning to this apartment in the future.
We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at our apartment. We think both the apartment and the balcony are a lovely size and it is good to know that your party of 6 thought is was spacious too. We told Anne Marie who manages our apartment that you found everything to be clean and well equipped and she was delighted - she does pride herself on making everything nice for our guests. Thank you too for being excellent guests and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
