Comfortable and peaceful with all mod cons and with both sea and mountain views
This modern villa offers the perfect peaceful retreat if you’re looking for a holiday away from the crowds. The nearby quiet beach with crystal clear waters is part of a long stretch of sand and fine shingle which stretches from Polis to Pomos and where there are nesting sites for Green and Loggerhead Turtles.
The small unspoilt village of Argaka is within walking distance where you will find a couple of churches and winding streets to restaurants, tavernas, coffee bars, a bank, a bakery, a fruit market and small supermarket. More shops, bars and supermarkets can be found in the pretty resort of Polis - just a few kilometres drive away.
Located in a quiet cul-de sac, the property has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and boasts many features including air conditioning, Wi-Fi, Satellite TV, DVD Player, Stereo, and a fully equipped kitchen with washing machine and dishwasher. As the twin bedroom is downstairs and there’s an adjacent walk-in shower the property is also suitable for less abled guests. There is wheelchair access.
The garden with private pool and patio is planted with palm and lemon trees and offers a permanently shaded parking area for your car. With a barbecue at your disposal it’s the perfect place for dining al fresco – you could even have a glass of wine on the roof terrace watching the sun go down…
If some of your family like to be a bit more active there are water sports in Latchi which is about 20 minutes’ drive away and plenty of walks and picnic spots within the nearby Akamas Forest. Or why not hire bikes to ride along the flat coast road from Polis to Pomis?
The summer months see endless sunshine at around 30°C, the early spring months also enjoy good weather around 20°C which also makes Argaka a great place to enjoy an early Easter getaway.

Beautiful, tranquil, comfortable and stylish
About the Owner
We work and live in London. The villa and its beautiful calm surroundings provide the perfect place to unwind, sleep peacefully, explore nature and go out on the sea for the perfect regeneration several times per year. The wonderful warm climate means we can return throughout the 4 seasons and still expect warm weather. The region of Agarka is relatively unknown and such a treat in today's busy, noisy world, to find a place which has everything that we need to stay calm and happy, in tune with nature but close to activity. There is something for everyone here, young and old. Personal safety is also one of the key things that attracted us to the island.
Guestbook comments from the manager
M and C Brown, September 2010. We stayed at this lovely villa for 10 days and had a very relaxing, happy time. The villa is very well equipped, clean, modern and provides all luxuries wished for on a holiday. We loved the close proximity to the sea, private pool and the great taverna at the end of the road. It is also very private. We would definitely recommend this villa to friends.

Beautiful, tranquil, comfortable and stylish
All that you need for a lovely holiday is there. The house is well kept, clean and comfortable. The TV channels are endless and include SKY plus many new movies, and the wifi is of good bandwidth. The villa is secluded with its own pool and is very close to the beach. We loved swimming in the sea, pool and the watersports at Latchi. The towels and linen are super quality. I would thoroughly recommend this villa to my friends and family
Highly recommended, beautiful and comfortable
This house was the perfect setting for our family holiday. What you see in the description is pretty much what you get.
It is clean and modern and well maintained.
It is far enough from the crowd but close enough for all amenities. The bedrooms are comfortable. The private pool and the nearby playground are a great bonus.
I would definitely recommend for a family, friends or a couple.
From the Owner
“This beautiful villa is in a quiet, but not totally isolated, location and offers comfort and all your needs for a restful and relaxing holiday. It has good wifi and UK and Sky live TV with countless box sets and family films for the evenings. The BBQ is always on hand for easy delicious food with an excellent local taverna 5 mins walk away, on the beach. The beach is well known for its precious sea turtles, who return every year to lay their eggs. The sky at night reveals incredible constellations of stars due to low light pollution-this beats the TV for me! Outside the pool is clean and warm. Fruit is available from the trees, lemons, figs and avocados in season. We are surrounded by farm land, orange and olive groves. The sea is in front of the villa and the mountains behind. The sunsets are unbeatable. On the practical front, it has ceiling fans in the bedrooms for your comfort and air conditioning thoughout. The views over the ocean are fantastic and the beach is just a 5 minute stroll away.”
Activity and Interests
The beautiful, unspoilt Argaka Beach is in front of the house, which is wonderful for swimming and body boarding. Villa Stephanie has its own secluded pool and the excellent St. Barbara Beach Taverna within a two minute walk from the villa. All year round we enjoy stunning sunsets, visible from the house and especially the roof terrace. The Akamas mountains provide the perfect backdrop to the sunset. The Baths of Aphrodite are to the West of the villa, approx 15 minutes drive away. Pomos Point and harbour to the East is approx 15 minutes drive away.
The villa is set within a nature reserve with the backdrop of Paphos Forrest and mountains. Peace and tranquility are the hallmarks of this area, with the chance to observe sea turtles nesting and hatching on this special beach. The esplanade along the beach front provides a safe area for cycling, walking/jogging along this stunning seafront. Limini jetty is close to the villa with opportunities for fishing, diving etc. There is a go cart track close to Limini. Several good tavernas are available along the beach front and the small ancient hilltop village of Argaka, is within walking/hiking distance. The kiosk and excellent bakery on the Argaka sea front will provide most of your needs There are two petrol stations on the Argaka sea road. The ATM is next to the local kiosk and bakery. For major shopping, the delightful nearby town of Polis has a supermarket (Papanatonios) on the entry road to the old town. You will find small artisan shops within the paved old town centre. Have a simple Greek lunch and cool drink, at Dimitiri's, which is in the centre. There are two petrol stations on the Argaka sea road. The ATM is next to the local kiosk and bakery.
Close to Polis is the famous fishing village and watersports bay of Latchi. Beautiful boats and yachts are moored here on the quayside proving a lovely area for an evening promenade and choice of excellent seafood restaurants. The atmosphere is both sophisticated and relaxed. Latchi Watersports provide hire boats, snorkelling, waterskiing and tours of the coastline by boat. The famous Baths of Aphrodite are close to Latchi and are certainly worth a visit with a camera and walking shoes.
Also close but up the hillside is the old and beautifuly restored village of Steni. Dawn and her family run and excellent, authentic Greek taverna, which will never break the bank but introduce you to all the traditional dishes and you will never leave hungry!
Paphos Airport 55 minutes.
Larnaca Airport 2.5 hours.
Car hire recommended.
We can arrange a pickup from Paphos airport with a local hire car waiting for you at the villa. This takes the stress out of the travelling.
Near to the village of Argaka and just a 5 minute drive from the town of Polis with its tavernas, restaurants, supermarkets and banks; Villa Stephanie offers an ideal base to explore the nature reserve within the most beautiful and green part of Cyprus.
This modern stylish villa has been built, decorated and furnished to a very high standard and one which reflects an attention to detail. Sky TV and all UK live channels are available. Internet and wifi are reliable at 8GHz as part of the Villa package cost. There is also a large fridge-freezer, quality dishwasher, microwave, washing machine and a double-sink set in quality granite work surfaces, nothing has been left to chance. A fruit smoothie? Make it with the blender provided. A nice cup of coffee? A music system with high quality speakers is available plus a DVD player. However, there are large numbers of free films included with the TV set at no extra cost to you.
Comfort and cleanliness: the villa is furnished in white, taupe and cream. We enjoy a clean and fresh style to the villa in every way. There are two bathrooms (one walking shower and one shower in bath) with two comfortable twin bedrooms and one master (kingsized) bedroom.
The villa is set in a secluded, quiet cul de sac with some all year round residents. The stars at night are glorious and usually easily visible, as we keep light pollution to a minimum. The area is very safe and there is a great deal of kindness from local citizens.
Pool/snooker tables and computer games are available at local tavernas in Argaka and Latchi, for DVD hire, go to Polis. This is a great location for exploring mountain villages and travelling inland to experience the local way of life. Many village festivals throughout the island such as the Agros Rose Festival and Limassol Wine Festival. The village of Lysos is high in the mountains but quite a short journey, where you can enjoy fabulous views of the island and food at the hotel. Horse riding is also available there.
The villa offers everything you will need for winding down but is also very close to fantastic activities if you wish for more action.
