About Colin & Jenny

I fell in love with Cyprus whilst working as Search and Rescue helicopter ground crew between 1997 and 2003. I loved it so much I bought the villa as an holiday/retirement home, although retirement seems a long way off! Jenny and I married in Cyprus in 2013 and visit the island as often as we can. We hope you enjoy your visit to this beautiful place and hope we can make your stay comfortable and enjoyable.

Colin & Jenny purchased this villa in 2007

Why Colin & Jenny chose Souni

Why this property? It's our home and as such has every home comfort you would expect to find Rather than a sterile and bland hotel room.

What makes this villa unique

Far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas to enjoy the true tranquility Cyprus has to offer. But close enough to be on the beach or in the city in minutes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Wow! A little piece of heaven on Earth! Secluded enough to 'get away from it all' but central enough to enjoy the full spectrum of all the treasures Cyprus has to offer. Fantastic!" The White Family, Surrey.

"We'd very much like to recommend Olive Tree Villa. We really felt at home in this very well kept, modern yet pretty villa. The villa is very well equipped and set in a quiet but not too secluded enclave. Our family really enjoyed the garden and pool which was immaculately kept. Last, but not least, the owners and local property managers couldn't have been more helpful in making sure we settled quickly so we could get on with enjoying our holiday." Dr Lister & Family, Manchester.

"The villa was great! My family and I had a lovely holiday! Thank you so much!!" The Winter Family, Fife, Scotland.

"We had a lovely time, the villa was extremely comfortable. We can't wait to return sometime next year!" The Coombes Family, Kent.

Lovely house, quiet area, perfect for getting away from it all

  • 5 of 5

Not our first time in Cyprus but we took our niece and her mum. We all enjoyed our stay here so much we are already talking about a return visit. The villa has a great pool area, not really overlooked by anyone. The facilities of the villa had everything just like a home from home. I would agree that it is not accessible to folks with mobility issues as there is a steep set of steps down into the property. We were made very welcome by the agent and the local cats (they came around most days for a treat - the cats I mean). Quiet area, but not that far from the towns but would recommend hiring a car. Owners gave excellent support and instruction on everything. Will not forget this holiday and would definitely go again and make it longer next time.

Tranquil, relaxing, a home from home

  • 5 of 5

The villa is lovely, suitated in a quiet community slightly away from facilities. The property has everything you require for a longer break and is decorated to a very high standard. The pool and surrounding area is great to relax in. Can't fault it at all

Everything you need - wonderful stay !

  • 4 of 5

Great villa, immaculately clean and so well equiped the only thing we needed was food and drink ! Loads of space and a lovely open plan design. The village location is peaceful and yet only a few minutes drive from the roads that take you to either end of the island.

Loads of time spent by the pool and a lovely gas barbecue for al fresco dining.

The information leaflets provided set you up to find all the best places for everything, shopping, eating out leisure activities etc.

Ian and Jayne arrived in minutes when we had a query and were very helpful.

We have visited Cyprus a number of times and find this area of the island lovely.

Jenny and Colin the owners are very prompt in replies to enquiries and really helpful, keeping a steady contact between booking and arrival - also the security deposit was refunded the day after we arrived home.

I would highly recommend this villa for families or couples - children of all ages will have a fabulous time here. The pricing is very reasonable for the quality of villa you receive.

Thank you Jenny and Colin and we hope to return to Olive Tree Villa again.
