Guestbook comments from the owner

As returning visitors we knew what to expect........and we weren't disappointed. On this occasion, late September into early October, 2017 we were accompanied by our adult daughter and we were blessed with wall-to-wall sunshine for the whole two weeks. Temperatures in the high twenties / low thirties brought the magnificent swimming pool into its own.

Sun, swim, shade - delightful.

The villa is ideally situated in a quiet cul-de-sac with Peyia village just five minutes drive away ( a car is an essential ) with ready access to taverns and bars, a small supermarket, bakery and hairdresser with a more substantial supermarket just ten minutes away at Coral Bay, big enough to cater for all our domestic needs.

Choosing to eat out was not a problem with the nearby village of Kathika ( twenty minutes by car ) offering a good selection of restaurants, details of which are in the Information Folder kindly provided by the owners Mario and Frances and kept up-to-date by satisfied visitors The villa itself is beautiful, well furnished and immaculately clean with local housekeeper Sally discreetly available whenever required.

The Goddess Athene has many attributes .........to which I would add " perfection ".

Perfect villa for Cyprus Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

A group of us stayed here last month and absolutely loved the villa. It was spotless and the owner could not have been more helpful making sure we were settled, found the villa ok, and giving recommendations. We spent most days outside by the pool, using all of the outdoor equipment available - as well as attempting BBQ's most nights. The living room area is massive and has a huge selection of films for any nights you might want to stay in. The bedrooms are very comfortable and air conditioning throughout meant someone like me who naturally can't handle heat was cool throughout! Could not recommend this villa more!

Excelent accommodation!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic relaxing fortnight in this villa and would highly recommend it. The pictures don't give it the full justice that it deserves. It felt like home from home for us and I think this is why we felt it was such a nice relaxing holiday. We have been going to Cyprus for many years now and have decided that Peyia is just right for us as a family. It was obviously very warm in July but as it says in the description the position of the villa means you get a wonderful breeze not only at night but throughout the day which meant we could tolerate the heat a lot more. The girls and my husband loved the Wi-Fi and the spacious areas where we could each have our own wee area to do what we wanted was also a plus point. We liked our stay at this villa so much that we have booked to go back again in 2016. Cant fault the communication with Mario the owner and Sally who is the onsite agent. I would certainly recommend this villa to friends and relatives.

Villa Athene

Stunning Views & Fantastic Facilities

  • 5 of 5

Mario goes the extra mile in the upkeep of the villa & since our last visit there are new sofas & some really comfortable furniture on the large balcony.

This is our 4th visit to a most relaxing & well laid out Villa that has everything - step straight out into your private pool and entertain with a BBQ or sit on the balcony & watch the sun go down. The view is hard to beat & even if you want to catch up on some evening TV you can get all of the main UK channels & WiFi & start watching football or soaps at 10pm. We have rented a few villas in Cyprus but this is without doubt the best & the owner has put a lot of thought into making us feel welcome & Sally is excellent at looking after anything you need. Thank you for yet another fantastic stay. (If you want to save some money on shopping try Jumbo's in the Kings Mall its all half the price of Coral Bay shops) Christine & Paul

Another great stay at this well prepared villa

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit and we noticed some additional features such as the balcony seating, new planting around the pool and new internal sofas. All welcome additions to what is an already excellent property, well kitted out. We did a few additional things such as see the sunset at Agios Georgios; it has a little harbour and great restaurant. We also ate a fish meze at Latchi, worth the journey and discovered more of Peyia. A lazy but good holiday.
