About the Owner
Anne and I live in Worcestershire and have travelled to Cyprus over many years. With retirement approaching, we decided to buy a holiday villa in our favourite spot on the island. We have certainly not regretted it and can't wait to spend more time in the glorious sunshine. We enjoy getting off the beaten track (usually on a quad bike) and can always find another scenic gem to explore. We love the tranquility of our little corner - but we do get a bit competitive when playing volley ball in the pool - and there is nothing we like more than a relaxing glass of wine on the patio or balconies, as we watch the incredible sunsets.

5 based on 6 holidaymaker reviews
Just got back from a fabulous two weeks holiday at this wonderful villa. Thank you David and Anne for loaning us your home. The villa is like home from home it has everything that you need. The pool and bbq area are fabulous as are the grounds that the villa is set in. It is a short distance from Coral Bay so the hire of a car is needed. If you are looking for a quiet and relaxing holiday then this villa is perfect. Hopefully we will be using this villa again next year. Would just like to say thank you again David and Anne for loaning us your home it was faultless from start to finish.
We have just returned to England after an amazing two weeks in Villa Anne Marie. A real home from home. So relaxing. Such a beautiful Vila with everything you could need. David is a fabulous owner and extremely approachable. I cannot comment highly enough about this place and we feel very lucky to have experienced it. More than worth 5*.

Villa Anne Marie: the place to be
We have a high regard for this western-facing corner of Cyprus. As a base, Villa Anne Marie is perfect. It lies in a small group of houses on the entrance to the Akamas Peninsula, the last protected ‘wild territory’ of Cyprus. Surrounded by banana plantations, the windows from the upstairs rooms give views of sea, hills and splendid sunsets.
The cliffs are only a few minutes’ walk away. It’s a great walk along the top. If you feel minded to head for the beach below, that’s possible too. There are a few routes down of varying levels of difficulty and the wee beaches below are quiet and well worth the careful descent and the climb back. However, you can go much further than that – that’s only the near-at-hand walk.
The Akamas area is accessed by an un-made-up ‘main’ road with countless in small meandering roads through the fields and forest land. This is a wonderful place for walking, cycling and using all-terrain vehicles – popular and easy to hire. Further up the coast are more beaches including the well-known turtle beach at Lara where turtles lay their eggs and the newly-hatched baby turtles run down to the sea and swim away. The Avakas Gorge is also worth a visit, with its high cliffs eventually so close together at the top that you can just see a little bit of blue sky. It can be quite rough in places as you walk up the gorge – wear strong footwear with good soles and follow instructions if wet.
Then, when you’ve had your day out you can come back to Villa Anne Marie, relax, create a meal in the very well-appointed kitchen, watch the new television with its ability to access different language programmes as well as the BBC etc. Or, you can walk to the Fish Restaurant at Agios Georgios for some of the best sea bream just out of the water. Or have a take-away from the Sunset Restaurant. Or… the choice is yours.
We've been to Villa Anne Marie a few times now. We recommend hiring a car and picking it up at the airport: easier to find: supermarkets within easy reach, the market and other attractions at Paphos, other very good restaurants, access to hill villages and therefore the ‘old’ Cyprus in the area. And of course you are within relatively easy reach of the north and its towns and more wonderful walks. We feel at home in this house. With three bedrooms, dining, sitting and TV areas, it has lots of space. Also new Wifi. Even in the winter, think cosy duvets, heaters, mellow daytime temperatures, spring flowers pushing through...
This was our third holiday in Anne & David's lovely villa. The villa is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need. A real home from home. Great pool and outdoor furniture. Fantastic location, just as we like it nice and quiet with beautiful views. Resturants close by, ideal for those early cocktails. Anne & David thank you and hope to be back soon.

Many Thanks David and Anne.
Cyprus is a beautiful place as are the locals
