Villa Dalriada is our home in Cyprus. It is ideally situated in a quiet corner of Pissouri village, only 10 minutes walk to the famous Square with its unspoilt atmosphere and wealth of restaurants. The villa has 2 air-conditioned bedrooms, a roomy bathroom and a spacious living area and balcony which is positioned to gain maximum benefit from the stunning scenery and sea breeze. The villa contains everything you need from crockery and washing machine to internet, UK TV Channels and sunbeds positioned at the generously proportioned pool. Externally the villa is complimented by the finest bougainvilla in the village and a courtyard garden with citrus fruit in season. There is a shaded pergola in the rear courtyard which provides the perfect shady setting on a hot afternoon.

About CARSON AND FIONA BLACK
Hi, we are a married couple who love the atmosphere in Cyprus and in particular Pissouri village. We enjoy peaceful holidays away from the crowd. If you are the same and if you enjoy privacy and beautiful scenery then this is the place for you.
CARSON AND FIONA BLACK purchased this House in 2006
Why CARSON AND FIONA BLACK chose Pissouri
We bought in Pissouri because we spent a long time here when the children were small and it holds such happy memories.
What makes this House unique
Pissouri Village is well positioned, convenient for the motorway yet peaceful and private. The villa itself is conveniently positioned, close enough for a gentle walk, and with absolutely stunning views. My photos simply don't do them justice.

Lovely Villa in a great location for Pissouri Village
We had a lovely stay at the Villa Dalriada, it was clean and well presented with all the facilities we needed. It was great at the end of the day to sit out on the balcony and have a 'sundowner' with great views across the valley to the sea. The Villa is in a great location, just a 10 minute walk into Pissouri Village with its good restaurants and bars. Pissouri Bay is a 10 minute drive as is the main A6 motorway taking you to Paphos or Limassol or any of the attractions in the area. We highly recommend the Villa and would return when in Cyprus again. Keith
Pissoury is a beautiful village with a great view on the hills and the sea. It is quiet, but there are great restaurants and wonderful Friday entertainment-concert at the central square, which is in 10 mints walk from the villa. It is an end of a terrace property that gives the villa an advantage of having a pretty decent beautiful garden with nice, cool enclosed spaces to sit outside. It is an extremely quiet cul de sac.
We did not suffer from the heat as much as we would expect. There is always a breeze from the sea. It was also pretty cool inside the villa even when air-conditioning was off, and we did not use it at night preferring to sleep with open windows (with anti-mosquito nets).
The room upstairs is spacious and the sofa-bed is wide enough fto accomodate two people. The villa was clean and had all amenities needed for a comfortable 2 weeks stay. The housekeeper is very friendly and can help with any problem in no time.
A car is required if you actually want to spend time at the beach. It took us about 7 min to drive to the nearest one. We loved the beach. It was clean, pebble one, not very populated, with sun beds and parasols that can be rented ( 2 euros for each); the water was warm and clean. There are restaurants at the beach that serve really tasty food. There are also local shops and supermarkets where one can buy food, water, good wine, souvenires, beach cloths.
If you like an adventure we would suggest a bus excursion from Paphos to Troodos Mountains ( can be arranged on line, via Viator: only 25 dollars per person). It was great, though a bit scary. However, indeed, the best tour we had in years.
There is a good Water park in Limassol, great place to spend a day with children.
The only negative aspect we want to mention is what you would expect from such climate: insects. There are flies, pretty invisible in compare with regular mosquitos. We would suggest to keep all window net frames closed, use all-night effective anti-mosquito spray, check the ceilings of the bedrooms for the presence of flies in the morning (kill them all) before you discover the bites. Nothing different from any other hot summer vacation. There are also very-very small ants that may be seen in the kitchen, and, sometimes, in the bathroom. These ants bite (nothing major, though). However, regular cleaning help to avoid any accidents.
Caros and Fiona are extremely helpfull and very pleasant to communicate to. We had a wonderful time. Thank you.
A really lovely well positioned property in a great location.
The property is bright, spacious and well equipped. The outside space is excellent with 3 areas set up for relaxing, enjoying a meal or just taking in the day. A wonderful place to stay.
Breakfast with a view!!!
We had a very enjoyable stay in this lovely villa.
Carson is a very conscientious owner. We have used this website a lot over the years and he is one of the best we have dealt with. He responds to all emails very quickly. His video directions are fantastic, we found them especially useful as we arrived after dark, but we felt as though we knew the way.
The house is as pictured with plenty of extras. We made good use of the cold box and ice blocks to take lunches out with us most days. There are chairs and sun beds to use at the pool, or take out to the beach.
Breakfast on the balcony is great, as the view is spectacular.
We ate out in Pissouri every evening, Two Friends and Hill View were our favourites, but all restaurants were nice.
I would say that a car is necessary for staying in Pissouri. Although there are buses, but I’m not sure how frequent they would be.
I would have no hesitation in returning to the villa or Pissouri.
Relaxing holiday in quiet location.
The house was exactly as pictured. An end of terrace with the car parking area the other side of the garden. It was very early in the season so very quiet with little traffic using the parking area.The instructions we received for finding the property were excellent, which is always a good start. The view was very panoramic from the upstairs terrace and the sea could be seen in the distance. It was very well equipped in the kitchen and very clean. A car is definitely required. I thought it was good value for the rental price, however having used owners direct or similar for the last 16 years this did fall short of 'Luxury Villa'. To warrant that description it needs decorating throughout. The shower in the bathroom (no bath) must be one of the worst I have come across and really does need replacing and up dating.
Many thanks for the detailed review Sharon and I am delighted that you enjoyed your first visit to Cyprus and that you found the property in accordance with the photos, clean, good value and the directions accurate. I have just returned from my annual week of painting and updating facilities such as TV and internet. I also found that there was a problem with the shower pump which is now sorted but if there were any other specific issues I would be grateful if you would drop me an email.
Every thing we needed for our stay
We have had better meet and greets from other Owners Direct properties we have rented . Although we expected it to be colder in January the property was like an icebox until we had heated it for the first few days . Other than that it was everything we wanted for our break .
Thank you for this valuable feedback. Of course the villa should have been warmed for your arrival. I am disappointed and sorry that it wasn't and will raise the matter with our housekeepers. I am glad that overall it was everything that you wanted and hope to see you back with us again.
Five minutes drive to the Blue Flag Beach at Pissouri Bay. The beach is quiet, scenic and has ample restaurants in the background. 10 minutes drive to Evdimou Bay with just one restaurant and if you see more than 10 people it is considered to be crowded.
Paphos Airport is 20 minutes. Larnaca Airport is 70 minutes. Hire car recommended to gain the benefit of Pissouri's position amongst Cyprus' rich heritage.
Village Square 10 minutes walk. Aphrodite's rock 15 minutes drive. Paphos 30 minutes. Troodos resort 40 minutes. Curium archaeological site 20 minutes (World heritage).
Pissouri village has retained the character that much of Cyprus has lost. The locals are friendly, supportive and English is widely spoken. This is a quiet village, ideally suited to those who want to enjoy Cyprus without the clubs and karaoke. This is a million miles from Ayia Napa and Paphos. Ideal location for walking, botany, ornithology, cycling and archaeological holidays.
