|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
Relax and unwind in this wonderful villa that is great value for a large group or two families, yet cosy enough for a couple.
Set amongst the pines in an unspoiled part of Cyprus, boasting spectacular views over the shimmering Mediterranean sea, this villa is intimate while at the same time being spacious. Three bedrooms including one with bunkbeds, and sofabeds in two living rooms, means the villa can sleep up to 12 people.
With its large garden, (including a vegetable patch) private pool and floodlit tennis court, the villa can be enjoyed all the year round. In the summer you can spend hours by the pool or explore the many secluded beaches nearby, while in the winter you can go for walks along empty stretches of beach, or along marked nature trails through the pine forest above, relaxing by the fireplace in the evenings. Or you can play a game of tennis at all times, before heading out to explore the island’s beautiful countryside, rich history, and great food and wine, including one of the oldest wines in the world.
Alternatively, just lie back and enjoy Cyprus’ magical evenings gazing at the stars through clear skies and lulled by the gentle sounds of the night crickets. In Cyprus the living is laidback; you set your own pace.
Pick your own home-grown organic vegetables in the vegetable garden behind the tennis court. There you will find, lettuce, courgettes, aubergines, green peppers, tomatoes, watermelons, melons and cucumbers, as well as figs, apples and lemons.
And if you don't want to bother with the cooking, we can arrange for our cook to prepare a lavish Cypriot meal for you with the freshest ingredients.

Both the downstairs living room and the two bedrooms open onto a covered veranda festooned with jasmine.

Stelios Christofides purchased this villa in 2000
As the most beautiful and unspoilt part of the island, it was an easy decision to build our holiday home here, a spot that combines proximity to the sea and the greenery of the pine forest. We built this house as a place where our kids and our friends can get together in the summer and it certainly lived up to our expectations.
The downstairs somehow became the kids' domain and the upstairs that of adults. No matter how many kids were around, you never felt them. Cooking for large numbers was a pleasure, not only because you knew it would all be relished, but because the layout is such that you never felt you missed out on the conversation that was taking place just outside on the veranda.
Our kids are grown-up now but have fond memories of long days in the pool (we once counted up to 15), exciting games of tennis in the evenings, and lazy afternoons watching movies or playing board games. This is a house nobody ever wants to leave.
Thanks for having us at your Villa. We had a great time
In Cyprus and it is definately a vacation to remember.
We arrived at night and our first view in the morning was of the sea and pool from the second floor balcony, stunning!
We were a party of 6 adults and 3 children (6-16) and despite only having 3 bedrooms the villa is large enough to be able to find a corner to escape, if needed.
We chose to make full use of the pool most days, and in the heat of the day relaxed in the villa. There are plenty of areas out of the sun on the verandas and also by the pool. We played tennis in the evenings when it was cooler, had it not been mid August we would have made more use of the tennis court.
Stelios, the villa owner, was in regular contact throughout the whole booking process and was always quick to answer query we had.
A beautiful place that made for a special holiday for my family, we will miss it.
We loved the house. It was a perfect vacation thanks to the fantastic pool and the tennis court. We spent half days in the pool which was big enough even to do our swimming exercise in the mornings. We ate at the second floor balcony with the best view of the pool and the sea. We loved the peacefulness of the area. We will come back! Thank you Stelios for your warm communication with us!! It gives a pleasant feeling to know that the owner is welcoming and a pleasant person.
This was the perfect home away for our large family (five adults and six children)! The house was large and the surroundings was calm and beautiful and we used the tennis court and the large pool a LOT!! The area is very unexploited and we visited some of the beautiful beaches in the neighbourhood and found some very nice restaurants (St. Barbaras and the Fly again were our favourites). We could also recommend a trip to Pafos zoo and the waterworld. We would certainly recommend this villa!
We´ve spent ten wonderfull relaxing days at this beautiful Villa! The villa is very nice, with complete large private pool, surrounded with trees and bushes. So actually no one can view the pool from outside (actually there is only rural surrounding). So you are completely on your own. From the upper terrace we had a beautiful view over the bay. Several taverns like Lisas Place or Kanalli Bay are in short distance with a car.
Also the contact with the owner was completely satisfying.
As a short summary, a perfect hideaway for us. And we are looking forward for next year’s holiday!
We had the BEST time in the house and loved everything about it!
It is a gorgeous house, clean and with a stunning view over the ocean! The pool is fantastic and we spent hours there every day. In the evenings we played tennis. We loved it and are already planning on going back! Thank you Stelios and Marina
