About Angela Parouti

Seren Villa is owned by Jim, an aircraft engineer and his wife Karen who is a very dedicated mother to their two children and their golden retriever!

Why Angela Parouti chose Alethriko

After looking all around Cyprus for a plot of land on which to build our dream villa, we finally found the perfect setting to live and raise our children. Alethrico is ideally placed out of town and away from the commercialised tourist areas but at the same time just a 10 to 15 minute drive into Larnaca for shopping and a 5 to 10 minute drive to the nearest beach. We spent several enjoyable years living in Cyprus in rented accomodation to then only stay for 3 months in our new home - a new opportunity in Germany meant we had to move on. We do plan to return permanently to our dream villa some time in the future, until then we offer our guests the luxury we left behind to enjoy for themselves.

What makes this villa unique

This is the only villa in the area built on a double plot, which ultimately gives the obvious benefits of the outdoor area and luxury infinity pool. The terrace which surrounds the pool is so spacious it's like being at a small hotel so every body can have their own space.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Perfect villa with excellent facilities, furnished as a home not just a rental villa so had the extra touches for a more comfortable holiday. Lovely stay, perfect holiday, thank you! (T & Aug 2011)

Peace and quiet in luxurious accommodation. The villa was everything we could have wished for and more. Great pool and loads of outdoor space. The village nearby has all the shops you would need. From the time of booking to leaving the service we had from Angela was first class.(Kay B Aug 2012)

The Villa was the best we have stayed in anywhere in the world, everything was supplied and the position was very handy to tour around, we certainly hope to go again. (J & B Oct 2012)

Absolutely loved staying at the villa. Very spacious enough and provided so many facilities that even as a family of 5 of varying ages we had plenty to do and enough room and space not to get under each others feet. We have already discussed returning to the fantastic outside space and huge pool!Tait family (Apr 2012

A great family villa with plenty to do

  • 5 of 5

The villa was even nicer than we expected, well kept, good decor and not far from the beach, Lanika and the local restaurants/bakery, We spent most of our time around the large pool, either playing around it or within it. The gym in the garage allowed me to monitor the children whilst working out which was a real bonus, as I could exercise whilst being on 'watch'. The large lounge with large smart TV allowed us to relax on the huge sofas and enjoy Netflix as a family! The villa was clean on arrival and the easy to locate for the taxi. Angela (managing agent) who we paid in advance via bank transfer also visited us after we settled down to provide good advice on local beaches and super markets etc. Angela also organised a hire car for our stay + taxi from the airport which worked out well. The hire car was idelivered on our first day, and we delivered it back to the airport on our return, Angela was very friendly and gave us lots of tips to enhance our stay. Loved it - I hope to return again. Steve from Sevenoaks.

Not the best holiday (mouse drops, ants and terrible internet speed)

  • 1 of 5

Few annoying points which really impacted our holiday:

- The day after our arrival, we have been informed by the property manager that they found a mouse drops when cleaning the property a few days before. she placed traps but couldn't catch it.we found mouse drops a few days later in the bathroom and living room which means the mouse still living with us.

My point was, I should have been contacted by telephone or email prior to my arrival and shared the situation and offered a full refund or alternative accommodation if I am not happy with the property status.

- Since we arrived at the property we noticed ants on the kitchen surfaces, the property manager advised us to buy some spray to clean the area

I don't think it is my responsibility to clean and do pets control during my holiday.

- Internet speed was terrible, nightmare, useless, kids cartoon on youtube was buffering all the time, couldn't stream music or live TV channels. the speed was 0.07mbps comparing to UK basic broadband speed around 15mbps or more. I was unable to use mobile apps to check tourist destinations to visit or checking emails. the Property manager came back that the owner will increase the speed but it will take 4 to 5 days (I cant trust this happening)

- Air Con unit in the living area was not working, had to wait 3 days till the engineer came and fixed the compressor.

- We criticised the cleaning level because we found the mouse drops. then we clarified the misunderstanding that those are new drops from the mouse and the cleaning was done properly but. HOWEVER, the property manager was insulted by our criticism and decided to cancel the planned mid-week cleaning because her job is not meeting our expectations. we had to apologise that we were stressed from living with a mouse!!!! was not the expected reaction from a professional property manager.

Good points:

The villa's location and size were lovely, amazing swimming pool. having a car is highly recommended as you are in the middle of nowhere. 15 min drive to Larnaca's seaside

I believe the above issues are essential and easy to fix, having a pets control company cleaning the villa on regular bases will fix the above issues and spending more money on a better broadband deal will fix the internet speed issue.

Owner's Response: I would very much encourage anybody reading this review to firstly read the previous and recent guests reviews, in particular either side of this very unfair review. I also manage several other properties and we are regularly complimented on our high standards of cleaning, friendliness and in fact have a very high percentage of repeat guests every year - that alone speaks for it's self. As we describe in the property description and local area information on the web site the villa is situated in the country side. Inevitably from time to time a small mouse will make its way in from the surrounding fields. These field mice are absolutely tiny - less than the size of your thumb and it is impossible to seal off the house to stop them from entering. We proactively use glue traps to intercept the mice. They do not live or nest in the house and quickly leave of their own accord. Ants will appear very quickly if food is left out on work surfaces open for long - I do recall that you told me you left bread out and the ants were on the bread the next morning when you woke up - you assumed they were there on arrival but they were definitely not. We also detail this on the House Rules displayed in the villa - this is why I advised them to buy some spray and also advised them to be more careful with food and where they leave it. When I visited you the morning after you arrived there was unwrapped food all over the work surfaces and dining table which I pointed out to you. Ants make their nests in the soil and so there can be no suggestion there is a nest inside the house. Please refer to the review left by Sam Y who stayed in June and submitted his review in July who quoted " The WIFI is strong and reliable too" We decided to increase the wifi speed after your complaint - not because we think your complaint was justified but because we recognise that technology these days can sometimes be very heavy and as we have a lot of guests that are business people that stay in the villa we wanted to provide them with a better service. I do believe that your devices were of poor quality as all other guests both before and after them have been very happy with the wifi. . I would like to point out that the large open plan area downstairs has 2 air con units - the other one was working fine so the area was still cool. The engineer was contacted immediately and came at his earliest possible time however in August there is always high demand and a waiting list.

The most beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa comes highly recommended!!

We, the seven of us, including two sets of grandparents and a 4 year old, have stayed in Alethriko many times. Villa Seren is the nicest we have stayed in to date!

The villa its self is beautifully decorated and kept. There is plenty to do and has all the things you need to feel at home. The WIFI is strong and reliable too.

Then you go out to the amazing pool...the highlight of our stay. My 4 year old learnt to swim this year. Its stunning. There are great facilities outside.

And the villa manager Angela is fantastic. Any issues or questions, she is always on hand to answer and rectify. The reason we return year after year!!

A car is a must but the village is lovely with a taverna and shops etc.

We are booking again for next year....10 out of 10!!

Stunning Villa

  • 4 of 5

Stayed at this villa for a wedding in Cyprus, its a gorgeous villa with pretty much everything you need for a very comfortable luxurious stay in Cyprus. The area is very quiet and very close to the airport by car which for us was essential, its easy to get to Larnaka for the hustle and bustle and one gorgeous beach. The manager Angela was a star, very helpful and we had no problems finding the villa or getting in very late by the time are flight got in, she also got us shopping in which was very welcome as by this time there where no eateries open. My only negatives really are that the beautiful pool could do with some heating when the nights start to get colder as it was very bracing until the afternoon at the earliest and the BBQ is gas, very minor, for that I would give it 4.5 stars but cannot. The local taverna was very nice and easily walkable but take a torch, I had the best bottle of wine the whole holiday there, the staff where great and its very reasonable, there is a lovely bakery which has other bits and bobs too that is about a 15 minute walk which was great. All in all a lovely time was had by all and we would not hesitate to go back.

An amazing villa with a fantastic pool

  • 5 of 5

The best villa we have stayed in. It has everything you need for a perfect holiday. It's very spacious lots of room for everyone. There was 5 adults and 2 small children. The villa is very safe for the kids even outside the pool was not worried at all. The pool is absolutely amazing, you really do have to see it to believe it even with everyone in the pool it was still huge. Plenty of pool toys in the garage you can use all the floats and the toys in the villa. I definitely recommend booking this villa. Angela the property manager is absolutely wonderful anything you need or help with anything she is there for you. Only a phone call away. This is the 2nd time booking a villa through Angela it was very straight forward very easy to book from enquiry to paying by bank transfer much easier as you get confirmation straight away. We stayed here for 2 weeks but wished it was 2 months.

It is in a quiet village but the location is very good. It's not far from anywhere as the motorway is right there and has a very nice Greek taverna kokos just two min drive.

The villa was very straight forward to get to only 10-15 mins from the airport which is perfect after a long flight with kids!!

Special interest holidays:

Nearby attractions include:- Just 5 minutes drive away is the recently opened Olympic standard shooting range in Klavdia, (hosts to the European Championship Shotgun event which is run by the European Shooting Confederation), Lefkara, a traditional lace making village, Mazatos Animal Park, Ten Pin Bowling, Cinema and Go karting........something for every body.

Coast/Beach:

Larnaca town has several sandy beaches with sun beds, umbrellas, water sports, scuba diving, snack bars and restaurants. Other quiet beaches, which are ideal for a picnic are 10 minutes drive away and the famous golden sands of Ayia Napa and Protaras are 40 to 50 minutes drive.

Travel:

15 kilometres to Larnaca International Airport (15 minutes drive). 1 hour 15 minutes drive from Paphos International Airport. Car hire is recommended. In Cyprus they also drive on the left and there is a very good road network for those who want to explore the island.

Distances:

The beauty of Alethriko is that while the village is so tranquil and idyllic, it is only a 2 minute drive to the main motorway and centrally placed on the island so anyone wanting to explore the many things Cyprus has to offer can do so with ease. Larnaca 15 mins, Larnaca Airport 15 mins, Nicosia 40 mins, Limassol 25 mins, Ayia Napa 40 mins, Paphos 1 hr 15 minutes, Troodos Mountains 1 hour. A great central location for exploring.

Further Details:

Larnaca is a very cosmopolitan town, offering everything you need for a fantastic holiday. It is often unappreciated by those who don’t know any better, who think it is merely home for the islands' main International Airport.

Larnaca boasts a beautiful promenade lined with palm trees and pavement cafes, a marina full of multi-million pound yachts and boats, boat trips, world-wide cuisine, great shopping (Zara and Mango are here!), sandy beaches, water sports, good nightlife, history, culture and tradition. In addition to all of the things Larnaca its self has to offer it is perfectly placed on the island making it an ideal base from which to explore the rest of the island.

Seren Villa is 1km from the centre of the village and just a short walk to the nearest taverna-12 EUR for a traditional meal which includes a vast selection of starters, local dishes, a big mix of grilled meats and Greek salad. Lots of other tavernas within 15 minutes' drive to many of the nearby villages or a 15 minute drive down the coast to Zigi or Makenzie for a fabulous fish meze.You are spoilt for choice and certainly won't go hungry!! There is a good supermarket in the village, and other larger ones 10 minutes' drive away in the next village. Supermarkets like Carrefour are 15 minutes' drive away in Larnaca.

To enable you to start your holiday from the minute you arrive, a grocery welcome pack is available. List the items of your choice i.e. water, milk, bread, butter, cereal, fruit, eggs, fruit juice, tea, coffee, beer, wine etc. and they will be in the villa waiting for you-beers and wine will be in the fridge! Your holiday starts from the minute you arrive! Our property manager (Angela) who is English and lives nearby will meet you at the villa on your arrival to welcome you and to hand over keys and show you around the villa. Should you require any assistance/advice during your stay, Angela will be more than happy to help. Maps and guide books are provided in the villa.
