About the property

CY319

Both villas consist of a big open plan kitchen and living area divided by stone arches, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, roof terrace on the first floor and covered veranda. You can relax next to the big private pool of 5 x 10 m (4,50 x 11m resp.) and enjoy the wonderful view of the Troodos mountains. Both villas enjoy privacy from one another and are situated on a hill outside of the village of Miliou surrounded only by fields. It takes 15 minutes to the beach by car and 35 minutes to Pafos with it's world famous ancient sites and tourist attractions. We, Demetris and Barbara, are a German/Cypriot couple and are happy to help you with information or anything else you might need. Miliou is a small, unspoilt village in the Pafos district. In our rural area there are still many villages in the traditional style, Byzantine monasteries and churches, and plenty of places to explore. Here traditional hospitality still exists. On Google Earth you can find us at 34'56'08.69"N and 32'27'38.71"E.

About Barbara Symeou

We, Demetris and Barbara, are a Cypriot/German couple and live in the village. We are happy to help you with information about the area and anything else you might want. Pick fresh oranges from our own fields in season! We will be there for you if you need us. We like to go on holidays ourselves and try to provide you with everything we find important for an enjoyable time off.

Why Barbara Symeou chose Paphos region

We built the two villas on our own land. After the success of the two Villas Galinia we wanted to offer bigger houses for larger families as well. The two Villas Orama are a combination of traditional style of building with modern facilities.

What makes this villa unique

This is the right place for all who seek a quiet place to relax from a hectic life - beautiful views to the valley and to the opposite mountains.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great views, fantastic pool and everything we needed to enjoy ourselves. The villa is everything we have hoped for. Thanks to Barbara and Demetris for providing all the home comforts to make this place so welcoming and also for all the oranges, we had fresh juice every day. Lovely villa in an idyllic setting. After many years staying in Villas Galinia, they are worthy successors. Thank you!

This was our 1st holiday in a villa and it was even better than we would have imagined. It had everything and more! The photos do not do it justice as the views are amazing. We are a family that aged 65 - 4 and the accommodation united it all. Both Barbara and Demetris are extremely hospitable. The villa is simply beautiful! We would not have asked for anymore, you made our holiday one to remember. Thank you! Deb, Manchester P.S.: The breakfast, wine and fresh fruit was a lovely gesture.

Another great holiday, relaxing and soaking up the glorious weather and scenery. Hope to return again soon.

Second trip, just as beautiful

Owners welcoming, fresh orange and lemon juice every day to be picked from their own groves, stunning views, hoopooes in the trees and swallows everywhere. The pool was used constantly and the villa clean, spacious and fully equipped. Thank you!

Lovely villa, great views, quiet, remote and private.

  • 5 of 5

We visited for four nights in April / May, booking at the last minute. Barbara was incredibly helpful given the speed between booking and arrival. The villa was spotless when we arrived and as we arrived late she had provided a breakfast for us for the morning.

The villa was easy to find, and yet - because the sister villa next door was unoccupied - it was totally private.

The villa has a great pool, and lots of space to lounge around in, and incredible views into the quiet valley below. There is much to do in the surrounding area - lovely villages and walks and a fantastic taverna in the village. Beaches are close too.

I would recommend this villa and will definitely think about returning, perhaps booking both villas for a large family holiday.

outstanding view,quiet location, hospitable efficient owners

  • 5 of 5

We had Great stay early in the season (last week of easter) with my young family of three boys 11/8 and 5. Owners very efficient, informative and friendly . Lovely local village very friendly good food and possible to walk home afterwards. Villa clean well equipped . Lovely pool. Even a patch of grass for the boys top play a bit of football on. Lots of spring flowers and thousands of oranges available around the property for consumption at the time of our stay. Obviously need your own hire car to make the most of the stay, but only a short trip to polis with good food and beaches or to the south Paphos for the museums and busir life style/night life. Overall An outstanding property and location, highly recommended. We will defiantly be returning.

Endroit magnifique, hôtes adorables.

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine merveilleuse dans la villa Orama. Spacieuse, parfaitement équipée, la villa offre tout le confort voulu. Elle est située dans un très bel endroit et bénéficie d'une vue imprenable sans aucun vis-à vis. La pisine est très grande, bien proportionnée, c'est un rêve.La nature aux alentours et luxuriante et, en été, on peut se régaler des oranges et des figues qui poussent sur les terrains des propriétaires. Ces derniers sont adorables et très serviables. Ils nous ont beaucoup aidé alors que notre réservation de voiture avait été annulée au dernier moment. Je recommande grandement cet endroit pour des vacances luxueuses et pasibles.

Relaxing and refreshing holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderfully equipped villa and our hosts could not have been more helpful. The taverna in Miliou was marvellous and we ate there on several occasions, one of which involved music and dancing. The view from the pool was amazing and we enjoyed the swimming as well as sitting around playing backgammon. We will certainly recommend this holiday!
