We loved it so much in 2014, we came back and this time, we brought my sister and her family with us! Another glorious holiday, 10 days this time, in beautiful surroundings, gorgeous weather and an amazing host.
Andreas, the owner of the villa, is definitely the host with the most.... he goes all out to make everyone feel so welcome. We were treated to the most delicious Kleftiko and potatoes, cooked in the outdoor oven by Andreas, slowly slowly, for over 6hours and met brother in law, who helped build the villa, and Andreas' son who has just returned from studying in the UK... was a lovely evening, drinking Zavinia, laughing and having the privilege of hearing Andreas sing to us again...
The interior of the villa hasn't changed at all, but you have everything you need there for a lovely stay. If we could, we would live here!
Palatas Restaurant in the village Yiolou, is definitely a place to visit... the Mezzi is to die for and the staff are very attentive and friendly! The food is great value and delicious!
We WILL be back - Andreas is now part of our family, and all four children loved him and our two still miss him! Thank you for another wonderful stay in Cyprus!
I stayed at this lovely villa in June 2014 for two weeks, with my husband, our two children and my parents. We were greeted by the owner, Andreas, who showed us around although it was close to 2am and he doesn't live locally.
I loved waking up early in the morning and being able to sit outside, (on the balcony near the kitchen door) in the peace and quiet, feel the sun on my face and catch my breath, while taking in the views around me. The village location meant that our neighbours were regular people, going about their daily business so we got a proper feel of the Cypriot life.
Andreas took us for a tour of the village, we were introduced to the local spirit, "Zivania" while visiting Andreas' parents - needless to say, there was lots of giggling and fun that afternoon!! The village church is beautiful and to have Andreas sing to us in such a building was truly breath-taking, very emotional. We got to know Andreas well, over our two weeks stay - he was always accommodating, kind and very helpful.
The villa itself was equipped with everything you need. The beds were so comfortable and very big, we all slept really well! The pool was just what we needed as temperatures soared into the 40's and we spent a LOT of time in there. It looked amazing lit up in the evening. The garden is full of flowers and was a lovely place to spend time.
We fell in love with not only the villa but the village and would love to go back there again one day. I look back on this holiday with very fond memories and a tear in my eye. None of us wanted to leave. We were really hoping to go back this year, but the flight prices have let us down and we're all very sad about it.
If you want a relaxing holiday that will always remain in your heart, then this is the villa for you - enjoy xx
