Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Athene, it was very clean and spacious with everything we needed. It was lovely to return to after a day out and just relax by the pool or on the upper terrace, looking out at the fantastic view of the coastline. The pool area was well-equipped with sun-beds, a table and chairs, inflatable toys and a BBQ

Lovely, clean, well kept villa, peaceful and relaxing.

Paul and Sally - Wiltshire - 12 Sept. 2010

Thank you so much for providing a lovely, quiet villa. We have explored all the local beaches and snorkeling is a must. Sorry to leave.

The Battagels - Bristol - August 2010

Just returned from a 2 fabulous weeks in your villa. It was great!! The whole family had a wonderful time. The pool was great for the children. The villa was roomy and had all the things we needed. So thank you very much. We were so relaxed, I didn't even try to get online and try the internet.

Villa is located on hills of Peyia, so you get a cool breeze even in summer. Fantastic sea view. Villa and pool were spotless. Had all the facilities we needed. Manager very pleasant and helpful.

Great for family vacation.

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.

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.

Excellent facilities and vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this holiday villa and we immediately felt relaxed in this quiet residential area. Temperatures were at a warm 31 degrees, which made it ideal for the pool but also for enjoying eating out on one of the three dining areas of the villla. We particularly like the unspoilt view across the Coral Bay and Paphos areas from this hilltop villa balcony, especially in the mornings and early evening.

The villa is very well equipped, air conditioned (which we used in the evening) and with free wi-fi; a definite bonus with a teenager who was also delighted to be able to watch her UK soaps etc on the catch up tv. We also knew where to food shop but also tried the bakery Papantoniou half way down from Peyia.

We undertook the scenic journey to the Kykkos Monastery in the Troodos Mountains, but this is not for the faint hearted. Stick to the main roads up there, as these roads are better maintained if a little busier. We could have done more sightseeing or gone to Corallia Bay for the sandy beach, but we were just chilling by the pool mainly. The new shopping centre at Kings Avenue in Paphos is worth a look but park (free) in the second basement where there is always parking and take the escalators up. There is also a small Carrefour shop there for groceries too.

All in all another restful holiday and we may well come back for a third time!
