About the property

CY317

Galini is a Greek word which means 'inner peace' or 'tranquility'. This is what you can experience during your stay in one of the Galinia villas. The two villas are situated 25 m apart from each other. You have no optical contact with your neighbors because of the mature garden. Miliou is a small, unspoilt village in the Pafos district. In the area farmers grow citrus fruit, grapes, almonds and olives. In our rural area there are still many traditional villages. Here traditional hospitality still exists. There are many roads to follow if you want to discover the real Cyprus. - In Google Earth you can find the villas at 34'56'08.92"N and 32'27'32.36"E and on YOU TUBE under https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9cFNuLMC4gg

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our first visit to Cyprus and Villa Galinia. We have been heartened by your hospitality and concern that we have a good holiday. Your villa is beautiful and your large pool is a great attraction. Your attention to detail - provision in the fridge on our arrival, fruit to pick, the cleanness of villa and pool - have well contributed to a great holiday. The sunshine with a gentle breeze up here was most welcome. Most of all the scene of peace and rest have been priceless. The Tompson Family, UK.



Many thanks for another splendid two weeks in Villa Galinia. This is a true have of relaxation, a place to abandon stress of London living. We look forward to future visits. Carl Jackson, London.



Thank you very much for two lovely weeks in this superb villa with views to die for. We were last here in 2006 and it is just as good as we remembered. Following some less well-travelled roads we found some beautiful scenic views in the mountains and many lovely places not yet full of tourists.

Why go anywhere else?

  • 5 of 5

We have been returning to the hillside village of Miliou since our first visit in 2001. Why go anywhere else? Galinia has everything you could wish for in a holiday villa, with excellent facilities and a superb large private pool. The views are breath-taking, looking down to Miliou itself and across to the hills and mountains in the far distance. And then there is the tranquillity of this setting, where, for hours on end, all you will hear is birdsong or the wind in the trees.

All this just half-an-hour from bustling Paphos or 20 minutes from friendly Polis and its seaside neighbour Latchi. Car hire is essential, but for several days each holiday we leave the vehicle unused, preferring quiet walks in the hills or down to the sleepy village, or taking it easy in beautiful surroundings.

This is the perfect away-from-it-all holiday, especially with the owners Barbara and Demitris on hand with their local knowledge or for a friendly chat.

Pure relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Cannot have asked for a better location and Villa, we enjoyed our stay at Barbara’s and Dimitris’s. The owners were real warm wonderful people.

Their place was so relaxing in such an idyllic location; the views were beyond our expectations. Miliou is a little quite village up in the hills of Pafos, the villa overlooks fields of olive's, citrus trees, and many more as well as the wonderful hills and Troodos mountains.

The surrounded gardens are beautifully landscaped.

We will miss Galinia Villa, but will look forward to return one day.

Galinia 1 in Miliou

  • 4 of 5

A beautiful location near a picturesque village run by warm and welcoming hosts.The hosts were at the villa in 5 minutes to resolve a minor problem, they were obviously prepared to go the extra mile to ensure our stay was comfortable.A car is essential to enjoy the opportunities offered by this region.The Taverna in Miliou was also warm and welcoming and the food provided was good. We would be more than happy to return to the villa's offered by Barbara and Demetris.

Perfection, peace and tranquility

  • 5 of 5

I don't want to write this review as we have found the perfect holiday for us and wants to keep it to ourselves! We have been to the Galinia and Orama villas and don't intend holidaying anywhere else.

Beautifully located above the small village of Miliou with stunning views to Trudos mountains, the villas are private with all home comforts, including your own pool. Set in lemon and orange groves, they are Very clean and well maintained, you could quite easily spend all your time at the villa.

Miliou is a lovely, small village with a taverna and coffee bar in the square, serving traditional food and drink, a lovely place to pass evenings with the locals without the hustle and hassle of resorts.

The biggest positive is Demetris and Barbara, the owners. Their aim is to make your stay as pleasant as possible, nothing is too much trouble for them, they are genuine, friendly people who we hope to meet year after year. Efaristo, Danke.

Simply The Best

  • 5 of 5

After staying in villas all over Cyprus for the past nine years we can't believe we’ve managed to miss this one until now. What a gem!

On our arrival at the villa, the views from the front patio and pool area simply took our breath away; stunning mountain scenery, and apart from the sound of the birds and the breeze blowing through the trees absolute silence. It was just what we needed to help us unwind after a hectic year at work. For two avid star gazers it was also wonderful to observe the night sky in a way that is impossible living in a city. The villa itself was much bigger than we expected and the best equipped of any we have stayed in previously. On arrival it was spotlessly clean and had another thorough clean halfway through our stay. The pool area and gardens are immaculately looked after by Demitris who also supplied us with an enormous bag of oranges picked straight from the tree to make fresh juice.

Car hire is essential here, but after a drive down the hill through the village square and onto to the main road, it is only five minutes to the nearest mini market or fifteen minutes into Polis for all the facilities a town has to offer. Our favourite meal out was at the Tremythas in Simou. Set in a pretty pedestrianised village square, it is typical of the traditional Cyprus and Maria was so friendly as we waited for our meal to arrive.

We must also thank our lovely hosts, Barbara and Demitris who were so kind, friendly and helpful during our stay.

It was difficult to leave after our two weeks which flew by far quickly, but we have promised ourselves that we will return. We would highly recommend this villa to anyone looking for a truly relaxing holiday.

Totally relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our holiday at Galinia villas so much so we have booked again for next year. We recommend the villas for anyone wishing to get totally away from the usual hustle and bustle of the usual tourist destinations. To drink up the solitude, peace and quiet offered here is amazing. As a bonus, if you wish, you can achieve that all over tan as it has no visual contact with anyone around. If you need any supplies the nearest small supermarket is about 10mins drive so a hire car is absolutely essential. Barbara (the owner) will organise car hire with a local reputable hire company as she did with us. It is a good walk (just under 1km) to the sleepy, working village of Miliou but it is well worth the walk while you are there enjoy a cool drink in the only local taverna. All that needs to be said has been put in the villa write up which is comprehensive and accurate. It was so lovely to wake up in the morning, to go outside and look at the troodos mountains in the distance, the views have to be seen to be believed. When the weather is too hot just take a dip in your large private pool. For the people into wild life look out for the humming birds daily visit to the numerous blooms in the garden. You will also see a number of geckos and lizards running around together with the odd Buzzard and Peregrine circling around.
