Guestbook comments from the owner

"Thank you for letting us use your beautiful villa. It was perfect, and we all had a wonderful holiday. The village of Droussia was exactly what we had hoped for, being a traditional village away from all the hustle of a main town, and the people are so friendly we felt totally at home there. Thanks to Pawel who helped to make this holiday one of the best we've had. We hope we get the opportunity to book again soon."

Spencer Kemp July 2013



"We had such a fabulous couple of weeks at your equally super villa! It exceeded our expectations! The photos on line were obviously why we booked it but have to say it was even better! Just beautiful. The villa was spotless and very well managed, you have a great site manager!"

Claire Willis August 2013



"Fantastic villa with amazing BBQ, we cooked there every evening. Loved living outside. The patio had more than enough room for the 6 of us."

A lovely villa in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely villa this is, beautifully presented, very spacious, well equipped and very clean in a great location. It's close to local amenities with supermarkets for lovely fresh produce and super restaurants. The Akamas peninsula is wonderful to explore, we enjoyed Lara beach, and the Avakas Gorge is spectacular. The beach near Aphrodite is beautiful. We would recommend Imogen's Taverna in Kathikas and there are some lovely places to eat in Polis. The mezes were amazing! I can definitely recommend this villa for families or couples it would work for anyone!

holidays that dreams are made of

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a 14 night stay at this stunning villa. We travelled with or family of 3 and our friends with their family of 4.

Words can not express how fantastic this villa.

It is situated in a very secluded area with just a few villas in the immediate location.

The villa itself boasts stunning views and the accomodation itself is top quality.

We were a bit concerned we may struggle with the heat following a recrnt heatwave in cyprua being reported, however due to the villa being in the mountains it was hot but manageable compared to the unbearable heat of near by towns of which we travelled to on a few occasions.

We hired a car for the duration of the stay of which is essential.

The near by towns of latchi and polis are stunning and we found a wonderfull town called kathikas and a fantastoc restaurant called the farmyard restaurant a must for all to visit.

We ate in a lot of the time due to having 2 5 year olds with us and wanting to get them to bed, the bbq is ideal for this and the supermarket in polis is very cheap.

All in all the villa owners have been fantastic and john the guy that looks after the villa for them is very freindly and welcoming.

We would definatley return.

Wonderful Place! Tranquil and Comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

A very comfortable villa with a great pool and barbeque. We stayed for two weeks with two families and had a wonderful holiday. It was the hottest time of the year but the villa was always cool and there were always plenty of shaded areas around the pool.

Great views across to Polis and only a short walk (~800m) to the local village with bars and restaurants serving local food at very reasonable prices.

We had a very helpful villa manager who was always available but never intrusive.

The local area is great for walking and water sports (jet skis our favourite!)

An unreserved recommendation. We would definitely return.

Relaxing Couples Getaway

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful villa at the top of the hillside overlooking Latchi. My boyfriend and I came to get some late summer sun and have a relaxing getaway. This place was a brilliant find.

It was exactly as described, and we both remarked that the photos didn't do it justice. It was very peaceful, and a 10min drive away from all the things we needed, supermarket, beach, harbour restaurants etc. The local supermarket, Papantinou, was huge and we really enjoyed buying lots of shell-on prawns and barbecuing them! We loved eating on the outdoor patio and the sunsets were beautiful.

The local contact, Pavel was brilliant and great at suggesting places to visit. He gave us excellent directions to some amazing places, and our favourite was an off-the-beaten-track beach, Lara. Definitely a must-visit!

Both of us love snorkelling, and we found plenty of local coves which were great fun. Again, Lara was fun to snorkel at and Aphrodites' rock was incredible to snorkel around- really dramatic underwater landscape! We'd also highly recommend taking a tourist boat tour from Latchi harbour for a day, it travels along the NorthWest peninsular coastline which is pretty much inaccessible by car. The whole cruise was stunning and the water was perfectly clear and turquoise. We stopped in the 'Blue Lagoon' which was exquisite!!! We were fed an amazing BBQ and stopped at several little out of the way coves for swimming and snorkelling. So incredible!

Although it was just the two of us, (which was extra special and luxurious) we could easily see families staying here as well.

This is a special find, we'd love to come back soon.

Lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

2 adult couples, had a wonderful time at the villa, lots of space and a wonderful BBQ and patio area. Pool a little chilly but fine once you're in. Villa fitted out to a very high standard, peaceful setting and great views from the terrace and orchard. Nice quiet road. Villa manager Pawel very helpful. Near to Drouseia, Polis and the mountains.

Special interest holidays:

Droushia is on the edge of the Akamas Peninsula at the western most point of Cyprus, and the whole area is crisscrossed by rocky trails and long distance walking routes. Akamas is ideal for climbing, walking, running, mountain biking, swimming, diving, fishing, exploring, cruising on small craft, and bird watching.

We can advise you on walking, cycling and horse-riding and most other things you want to know to plan your holiday.

Akamas is one of the very few important sea turtle nesting areas in the Mediterranean for both the Loggerhead Turtle and the rarer Green Turtle.

The town of Paphos to the south, is on the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage List. Among the treasures unearthed, are the remarkable mosaics in the Houses of Dionysus, Theseus and Aion, the mysterious vaults and caves, the Tombs of the Kings, and other places of interest.

Coast/Beach:

Local beaches at Latchi and Lara are 15 minutes drive away. Perfect for swimming, diving, sea kayaking, snorkeling, jet skiing, boat trips and exploring. You could even see some sea turtles!

Latchi's picturesque harbour has fishing boats and yachts, and is renowned for its fish restaurants with it’s lights reflecting in the waters of the harbour.

Travel:

35 minutes drive from Paphos airport.

Distances:

The village of Droushia is a 5 minutes walk with a small supermarket and village tavernas.

15 minute drive to Latchi with its seafood restaurants, and to Polis which has a large supermarket, banks, shops, restaurants and internet cafes.

Kathikasis is 5 minutes drive away and has a vineyard and a couple of excellent tavernas.

Further Details:

Polis also has a tourist office which can supply you with all local event knowledge and places of interest and any maps you require. The area also benefits from superb local fruit and vegetables.

Mountain biking, guided walks and quad-bike trips in the Akamas Park, scuba diving, snorkeling and boat hire can all be booked with local companies. The European E4 long distance walking route passes through Droushia, and you can walk or bike directly from the villa into the beautiful scenery of the Akamas Park and the coast. Droushia is the centre for some of the best rock climbing in Cyprus, in walking distance of the villa.
