About the Owner

Hi, We are Clare and Rosie.

We have been great friends for over 20 years and approx 10 years ago decided to buy our first overseas apartment together. Clare lives in Hampshire and Rosie lives with her husband and son in the New Forest.

As we both work in a customer facing environment, we know how important it is to give excellent customer service and we like to make sure that we give excellent service to our guests too.

We try to think of everything you might ask and include answers in our website or emails that we send. We also try to include anything you might need in our apartments so that we make your holiday as wonderful as we can.

Great location, good description

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable accommodation, well equipped and great location. Walking distance to Tala for bars / restaurants. Shame the beautiful sea views are partially obscured by tree's and lose the sun late pm. Thanks to the owners for everything.

Lovely Apartment with a sun trap

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was exactly as described. Very clean, well equipped and very welcoming. But without doubt the main attraction is its' balcony. Get's full sun from just before midday to sunset, which is another special pleasure which can been seen in all its' glory whilst enjoying a little tipple. There are a couple of trees which could do with being cropped a little, but they still didn't stop us enjoying the views over Paphos and out to sea. The owners, Rosie and Clare, provided quick responses to our initial enquiries and have provided plenty of literature in the apartment about places of interest in and around Tala, and indeed, Cyprus itself.

There are 4 or 5 good restaurants in the immediate area with, in our opinion, the best value being Casa Luna. Another favourite of ours was Mario's snack bar. Very friendly, good service and with its' inexpensive prices, made a very pleasant way to end the day.

A car is not essential but is advisable to enable you to explore the surrounding area and quaint little villages that are dotted around the hills.

Polis and Latchi beaches are well worth a visit, along with the Akinas Peninsula, less than an hours drive away.

Would definitely recommend and hope to return soon.

Owner's Response: We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and loved the local Tala hospitality with its lovely restaurants and tavernas. Thanks for letting us know about the trees as this is the first year we have not been able to stay in the apartment ourselves so this was useful feedback for us. As you say the trees do not affect the amount of sunshine the balcony gets as they are not close to the apartment. Even so, we have asked the management company to get their gardeners to prune them back so that we can have an uninterrupted panoramic view again for future guests. We do have guests that stay without a car as there is a bus service to Paphos but we always hire one ourselves so we can visit all the lovely beaches. Thanks again for choosing us and we look forward to welcoming you back another year.

Lovely property with every amenity

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay in this lovely, spacious and well-maintained apartment. It has every facility needed to make it a real home-from-home. Set in an ideal location at the end of the apartment block with plenty of available parking space. The very large balcony provides areas of both sun and shade at all hours of the day, with views down to the secluded pool area and beyond to the coastline at Paphos. Rosie and Clare, the owners, ensure a trouble-free stay with excellent contact information prior to the visit and the services of a very helpful apartment 'manager', if needed, during the visit. All in all, a very relaxing and peaceful holiday is to be had in this lovely apartment.

Nice location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is quite spacious and very clean with a larger than average balcony. Most appliances that you would need as a self-caterer are provided and in good order. It is situated in a quiet hillside village location so hiring a car is a must!

There is a decent sized swimming pool that is communal to all the apartments in the surrounding blocks, however most of the time that we were there we had it to ourselves. There are several good tavernas for food and drinks in the Tala region but be aware that the nearest mini-market is a fair distance down the hill so stock up using the car when you arrive.

Coral Bay and Paphos town are in easy driving distance and it's worth taking an excursion into the hills beyond Tala to find some lovely villages and tavernas. We found a great traditional taverna in Misogi that has bazouki nights on Fridays and great village cooking!

A few cons; the view from the apartment balcony, which I'm sure was majestic and sweeping a few years back, has been tainted somewhat by a couple of fast growing conifers. However, you can still get a fair view in-between them. There were a few yappy dogs in the locale at night, but if you're a good sleeper it shouldn't be too much of an issue.

All in all I would recommend this apartment to friends and this area of Cyprus in general.

Owner's Response: Thank you, we really do appreciate you doing the review. Thanks for drawing the trees to our attention as we haven’t been out there for over a year and in Cyprus trees can grow 3 or 4 metres in a year! We have asked the gardeners who manage the apartments to arrange for them to be well pruned, possibly replaced so that our wonderful panoramic views are restored.

Fabulous apartment

  • 5 of 5

2nd visit to Tala Hills everything was superb just as we remembered very clean and well maintained. Close to village bars and restaurants hiring a car we were able to go further afield the apartment is a great base to get out and about. Once again the owners were great giving us lots of information. We would certainly recommend this apartment.

Location

From the Owner

We bought this apartment before it was built and we remember climbing over building blocks and teetering on the scaffolding to try to work out which of the apartments would have the best view - and we got it right! The views of the valley and the coast line below are just stunning by day and magical by night. Our balcony is enormous with a shaded area for our patio table and chairs and a sunny section for sun worshippers. You can watch your kids play in the pool from here or join them poolside. The village of Tala itself is small and unspoilt, still retaining the Cypriot way of life, yet has all the shops and restaurants you could need.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Paphos at 25 Kilometres Nearest Golf : Tsada Golf Club at 8 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Artemis Restaurant, Tala at 0.2 Kilometres Nearest Ski : Troodos Mountains at 75 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Coral Bay at 8 Kilometres Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

Coral Bay and other numerous secluded sandy bays are within 15 minutes drive. Further afield are the unspoilt beaches of Cyprus's Nature Reserve on the Akamas Peninsular. The crystal clear waters are excellent for Snorkeling and Scuba Diving. Windsurfing is particularly good around Limassol and Lady's Mile Beach.

Travel:

Paphos Airport is just 30 minutes drive from Tala Hills. Taxi costs approximately 30 euros. Car hire is recommended if you want to explore more of Cyprus. You can hire these at the airport but to be sure of a car it is best to book prior to your trip. Alternatively, Lanaka Airport is approx 2.25 hours away.

The delightful harbour and medieval fort of Paphos are approx 15 minutes drive from the apartment. The picturesque trails of Troodos Mountains or the rugged beauty of the Akamas Peninsula are within 60 mins drive.

Limassol, the largest seaside resort is an hours drive. Nicosia, the capital lies at the centre of Cyprus, and Larnaka are both approx 2 hours drive away. Trips can be arranged by the Tourist Information Office to Egypt, Rhodes and Symi.

Further Details:

The village square with its supermarkets and restaurants is just 500m, 5 minutes walk away. Guests are able to use the exclusive Kamares Clubhouse and Sports centre which is 5 minutes drive away. There are many interesting historical sites on the Island -the Tombs of the Kings, the House of Dionysus and Aphrodites Rock are in Paphos itself.

Facilities

From the Owner

It is in a brilliant position at the top of Tala and the square is just 5 minutes walk away. Again, we have to say our view - it is spectacular! If you read our testimonials on our website, you'll see that nearly everyone mentions it! In addition to all that we have told you in our advert, we have a wonderful lady called Anne Marie who looks after the apartment for us and will always be at the end of the phone should you need her.
