About the property

Apartment in Anarita Village, Nr. Paphos, Cyprus - 3 Pools, In Traditional Cypriot Village, 10 Minutes Drive From Paphos Airport, Free A/C And Internet

Having three double bedrooms and an open-plan living area adjoining a large terrace, the apartment is an ideal base for a family, a group of friends or a couple - just relax at home on a comfortable lounger, swim in one of the three beautiful pools on site, or use it as a base to play golf, to walk, to go to the beach or to visit one of the many attractions in the area. The apartment is light and airy, with excellent views from all rooms - to the hills behind and, to the front, across the village and fields to the Mediterranean. The sunsets across the sea from the terrace can be amazingly beautiful. All the rooms have air conditioning and ceiling fans, and have been furnished to a high standard in a simple, contemporary style. Children are welcome; baby equipment is provided free of charge if requested. Autumn through to spring are excellent for golf, walking, bird watching and climbing. Climbing crags are nearby.

About Judith Cartwright

We paid a deposit on the apartment in March 2008, after spending some very happy holidays in Cyprus and having decided that Paphos was our favourite area. We didn't plan to move to Cyprus so soon but from October 2008, for four years, my husband was the Project Engineering Director at Elea Estate. Our permanent home is a bungalow in Anarita, just up the road from the apartment. We also spend time at our house in Binfield, Berkshire. I am a retired librarian and my daughter is an events manager back in the UK. I enjoy tai chi, swimming, reading, gardening and walking. I love the Anarita countryside, the flowers and the birds and I'm happy to lend my books to you while you are here. My daughter is a very keen rock climber and can recommend the best local crags.

Judith Cartwright purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Judith Cartwright chose Anarita

What we love about this area is the open countryside so close to the airport, the coast and to all the amenities. The Paphos/Larnaca/Nicosia motorway is only 3 km away and traffic is so light that driving is very enjoyable. We can see the sea from the apartment and on most of our journeys; it has different moods that we never tire of photographing! We have been made very welcome in the village and are happy being part of the community here. Paphos is only 15 minutes drive and we visit regularly for shopping, eating out and concerts. When we chose the apartment we knew that we wanted somewhere quiet, with good views, with attractive swimming pools and gardens, that we could walk from and enjoy the countryside. We are delighted that we found Anarita as it has all of these things.

What makes this apartment unique

The quiet village environment is an excellent base for your visits to the hustle and bustle of the busier tourist spots in the area. If Bar Street in Paphos suits some of your party while others want a quiet drink on the terrace, you have a choice! With comfortable terraces, three pools to choose from and tavernas just round the corner you don't have to leave the village if you want to stay home while others go sightseeing or play their sport. My husband can help you with your golf arrangements, I can help with tennis and my daughter with climbing. We have young grandchildren so we know where they like to go and we are very happy to lend you equipment, toys and books. Anarita is pretty and unspoilt, the sun usually shines and the apartment has everything you'll need for a happy holiday.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were very pleased to receive this review from a Swiss couple who are hoping to return.

"We spent the last two weeks of September in Anarita Chorio at the Penthouse of Judith and Alan Cartwright. Thanks to the excellent directions from Judith, it was no problem for us to find our holiday apartment, which is about twenty minutes away from Paphos.

The bright and spacious penthouse was spotless clean. All the appliances and the air conditioning worked without problems and the kitchen was equipped with everything you could want. We really loved the place and felt at home in this lovely apartment and especially enjoyed the large terrace with a beautiful view over the land to the sea. The colorful sunsets enchanted us every day anew.

We do recommend the penthouse in Anarita Chorio to all those people who like to be a little away from the big tourist centers in a relaxing and beautiful surrounding".

Notes on accommodation: The apartment was new for the 2011 season, in a development that opened in 2010. Most of the units are town houses grouped around one of the three pools. There is just one apartment block at the top of a gently sloping hillside site, surrounded by countryside, with our apartment facing south towards the coast. The gardens are well landscaped and there is a small play area for children with swings and a roundabout. The apartment has a dedicated covered parking space next to the front door of the block. Outside: The outside areas are a feature of the property. Facing to the south, off the main living area, is a large roof top terrace with 270 degree views of hills, fields, trees and the sea in the distance. You can see the planes landing at the airport but you can't hear them as the flight path is out at sea. Sometimes you can see the cruise ships go by. A dining table with 6 chairs, 2 comfortable loungers and two large parasols make relaxing and eating here a pleasure. Facing east, is a small covered terrace with a table and two chairs, ideal for quietly reading or just enjoying the view. There are three large shared swimming pools (15 x 13m, 16 x 8m and 16 x 11m) with loungers and umbrellas and surrounding landscaped areas. These pools have shower and toilet facilities. A few metres north of the site is open countryside where you can take pretty walks in any direction. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: All linen and bath towels are included. Please bring your own beach towels. Weekly change of linen and towels.

Fantastic apartment with great facilities and lovely pool area with scenic surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Alan & Judith's luxurious apartment for 2 weeks at the beginning of July with our two sons (aged 18 & 20). You couldn't ask for more when it comes to an apartment. The apartment has all the facilities that you would require and the outdoor area is ideal with lovely views of the surrounding area. Undercover car parking is provided which is great for the hot days that await you! The pool area is beautiful with well kept gardens all around. For the first week we had the pool to ourselves and in the second week it was only used by the odd family here and there. A car is required to get about but everywhere is easy to get to from a decent size supermarket being a 5-10 min drive away or Paphos town 20 mins. The roads where very quiet and we found it very easy travelling around Paphos and surrounding areas. The are a couple of bars, shop and a fanatastic restaraunt (Olivio's, well worth a visit) within walking distance. Overall a fantastic holiday and would certainly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway.

Outstanding apartment in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

As a family of four including sons 21 and 23, we stayed at Alan and Judith's incredibly well equipped apartment in August and found it to contain absolutely everything needed for a relaxing (post graduation) holiday; corkscrews to beach umbrellas ! The entire apartment was spotless with a huge lounge area and two very comfortable couches and was very well maintained throughout. Stuart, who managed the property was very friendly and although we did not need to engage him in respect of any problems ,were confident that he would have dealt with issues promptly.The pool area was very well maintained and clean and whilst we were there, not over busy.

The roominess ensured that each individual could relax in their own way, be it reading/sunbathing on the huge penthouse style terrace or catching the first match of the season on the satellite TV!. We regularly ate out on the terrace and enjoyed the exceptional views and the balmy evenings .Judith's advice on the quiet local beach at Timi , best restaurants and shops proved unfailingly reliable . We used Gabriel's Taverna in Kouklia on several evenings which is traditional , very busy and best booked in advance and Olivio's in Anarita village which is in walking distance. The service and quality at Olivio's was outstanding and pre dinner drinks in the lounge proved a particular favourite for all of us. I have already recommended this outstanding apartment to a colleague and also to our closest friends. We look forward to returning there very soon.

Our favourite holiday destination

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 (2 adults and 3 children) and this is our third holiday to Cyprus staying in this apartment - we love it! It is in a fantastic location for visiting the Pafos area of Cyprus and further afield. We have always hired a car and it is easy to travel around. The apartment is spacious and always very clean. Judith and Alan are very friendly and have provided everything you might need for your stay - A fully equipped kitchen, DVDs and books and even folding chairs, buckets and spades and a cool bag for the trips to the beach. The pools on site are lovely for swimming, playing in or relaxing by. We have never found the pool to be crowded - often we have had it to ourselves. The location is peaceful and the balconies have fantastic views. In the evenings you can sit out on the larger balcony and watch the sun go down. We would highly recommend this apartment..

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that your family enjoy staying in our apartment and that you chose to come back again this summer! We never tire of the sea and country views from the balconies, especially of the amazing sunsets. I'm writing this on a beautiful October afternoon, temperature 28 degrees, blue skies, swimming pool beckoning - autumn is perfect here. We hope to see you again.

Spectacular terrace view

  • 5 of 5

This was the fourth time we stayed in this comfortable and well-maintained flat. And we are preparing for a fifth stay later this year. We love the terrace with the spectacular view of the suroundings including the sunsets into the sea. The three well equipped bedrooms have made it possible to invite friends outside the family to come and stay for a while. The kitchen with all necessary utensiles makes it easy to live an everyday life in preparing the fresh food from the well sorted supermarket fairly close to the village.

Owner's Response: We are delighted that you feel at home in our apartment and that we'll see you again later in the year for your annual visit. We know that golf plays a big part in your lives when you are here and we feel very fortunate that we have three excellent golf courses within 15 minutes' drive. The views from the terrace are indeed spectacular!

Brilliant 10 night stay x

  • 5 of 5

I have just returned from an amazing 10 night stay with my family, which includes my 19 month old grandson. The apartment was equipped with everything we could possibly need, and more! My grandson was well catered for with books and toys. Having all the linen and towels provided was a definite bonus! The pool area was clean and we'll maintained. We were very lucky to have most of our stay the pool to ourselves! We really enjoyed our stay and the vicinity is great as it's not too far away from Paphos and the beach. Thanks again to Judith and Alan We will definitely be recommending to our friends x

There are several places to swim within 15 minutes' drive of the apartment. The beach used by many Anarita residents is Timi Beach about 10 minutes away. Here there is a beach cafe with great views in both directions along the coast and crystal clear water, where you may be lucky and see a turtle. The unspoilt coast at Mandria, also 10 minutes drive away and is great for walking. Further away are Pissouri to the east and to the west Geroskipou, Paphos and the popular sandy beach at Coral Bay.


Paphos airport is 10 minutes drive away. Year round flights come here from all over the UK and many places in Europe. Larnaca airport is 75 minutes away along the motorway with flights to here from Europe and the Middle East. Car hire is recommended from one of the many providers serving the airports to make the best of this rural location.

Further Details:

The apartment, Anarita, Paphos town and Paphos District have something for all age groups and for different interests within a party. Some of the party can play golf, while others swim, laze quietly on the beach / by the pool, visit a World Heritage Site, play tennis or go to a spa. In addition to this, it is an excellent area for walking, playing tennis, bird watching and rock climbing. As a family we enjoy all of these things and are happy to answer your questions about them.

There are hundreds of tavernas, cafes, restaurants and take aways in the area. In Anarita itself there are five within walking distance; one of which has a new outside play area for children and is one of our favourites when grandchildren come to stay.

Mandria, six minutes away, has an attractive village square with five more eating places to choose from, including an excellent taverna and a Cypriot fish and chip shop.

We live in Anarita and we have plenty of recommendations for places to eat in Geroskipou (10 minutes) and Paphos (15 minutes) - places for special occasions, places for a drink with a view, typical tavernas and for a budget conscious family meal. The Harbour in Paphos is one of our favourite places to go, have a meal and watch the world go by.

The highlights for visitors who enjoy historical sites are the Paphos Archaeological Park with its amazing mosaics, the Tomb of the Kings in Paphos and the Roman remains at Kourion. In addition there are many smaller sites, monasteries and churches.

Children of all ages (and their parents!) love the Paphos Waterpark and the Paphos Bird and Animal Park. There are all sorts of sea trips leaving from The Harbour in Paphos.

Aphrodite Hills is a beautiful five star resort nearby with a spa, children's play area, tennis, golf and many restaurants. Guests from outside the resort are welcome.

There are Anarita/Paphos buses.
