About the property


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

The Perfect Villa

  • 5 of 5

Quite simply, this is the loveliest villa we've stayed in and we've stayed in a few. The view towards the Troodos mountains took our breath away when we arrived and continued to do so all week. It was fascinating to see how it changed as the sun moved round. Stunning!

The villa itself is unbeatable. Really well equipped kitchen, comfy bed, lovely and private, everything was as clean as a whistle and the crowning glory is the pool. Crystal clear and as warm as a bath. Perfect!

Miliou village was just a short(ish) walk away and was lovely. No shop but we stocked up at Papantonious in Polis. We had lunch at Pangratios and really enjoyed it and had an evening meal at the coffee shop and it was fantastic. Kostas and Petroula were really friendly and on learning that my husband had forgotten his reading glasses, Kostas whipped off his own so my husband could read the menu!

The villa owners, Demitris and Barbara are lovely people. So friendly and always available if needed. Thank you both so much for an amazing holiday!

A little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic villa, with the most beautiful pool and views to die for. If you want a relaxing holiday with time to just sit and gaze then this is the place for you. It was immaculately clean and fully equipped with everything we needed for a perfect holiday. The owners Barbara & Demetris we so welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for them. We had to drag ourselves away but have already booked again for next year so that says it all !

We had first holiday in Cyprus early 2013 and enjoyed it so much we decided to return September 2014.

We are so glad we found this wonderful villa and had to opportunity to meet Barbara and Demetris. They are wonderful hosts and so generous with an abundance of fruit to keep us refreshed. It was so relaxing just sitting by the pool listening to the birds, watching the lizards and enjoying the view.

The weather was perfect so we hardly used the villa except for sleeping although it is very well fitted, the juicer was great for using plentiful supply of oranges.

We enjoyed walking down to The Pagratios Tavern and the Miliou Coffee shop for meals, they are so good we didn't need to go anywhere else. They are both fantastically friendly and made us feel like we had been adopted as part of the village.

One of the most memorable and best holidays we have had. Can't wait to return.

Thank you Barbara and Demetris and the village of Miliou.

Wonderful & beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at villa Galinia was wonderful from the warm welcome by the village, luxurious accommodation & panoramic views across the countryside. If you are seeking the serenity of spectacular dawns, choruses of birdsong from the fruit trees and lazy days by the pool this is THE holiday destination for you. Cannot wait to be back.

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

What can we say 'just a perfect place' we have stayed many times in both Galinia villas. The area is outstanding with beautiful views of the

mountains & village below. The pool & house are both spotlessly clean. The owners Barbara & Demetris are the perfect hosts & nothing is too much trouble. (you just have to ask) Galinia Villas are situated in an area that is unspoilt & off the beaten track. You can do as much or as little as you like. If you like sitting under the stars after a BBQ & waiting for the Scops owls to arrive, whilst sipping a cool glass of wine, this is the perfect place for you!
