About the property

Apartment in Anarita Village, Nr. Paphos, Cyprus - 3 Pools, In Traditional Cypriot Village, 10 Minutes Drive From Paphos Airport, Free A/C And Internet

Having three double bedrooms and an open-plan living area adjoining a large terrace, the apartment is an ideal base for a family, a group of friends or a couple - just relax at home on a comfortable lounger, swim in one of the three beautiful pools on site, or use it as a base to play golf, to walk, to go to the beach or to visit one of the many attractions in the area. The apartment is light and airy, with excellent views from all rooms - to the hills behind and, to the front, across the village and fields to the Mediterranean. The sunsets across the sea from the terrace can be amazingly beautiful. All the rooms have air conditioning and ceiling fans, and have been furnished to a high standard in a simple, contemporary style. Children are welcome; baby equipment is provided free of charge if requested. Autumn through to spring are excellent for golf, walking, bird watching and climbing. Climbing crags are nearby.

About Judith Cartwright

We paid a deposit on the apartment in March 2008, after spending some very happy holidays in Cyprus and having decided that Paphos was our favourite area. We didn't plan to move to Cyprus so soon but from October 2008, for four years, my husband was the Project Engineering Director at Elea Estate. Our permanent home is a bungalow in Anarita, just up the road from the apartment. We also spend time at our house in Binfield, Berkshire. I am a retired librarian and my daughter is an events manager back in the UK. I enjoy tai chi, swimming, reading, gardening and walking. I love the Anarita countryside, the flowers and the birds and I'm happy to lend my books to you while you are here. My daughter is a very keen rock climber and can recommend the best local crags.

Judith Cartwright purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Judith Cartwright chose Paphos & Suburbs

What we love about this area is the open countryside so close to the airport, the coast and to all the amenities. The Paphos/Larnaca/Nicosia motorway is only 3 km away and traffic is so light that driving is very enjoyable. We can see the sea from the apartment and on most of our journeys; it has different moods that we never tire of photographing! We have been made very welcome in the village and are happy being part of the community here. Paphos is only 15 minutes drive and we visit regularly for shopping, eating out and concerts. When we chose the apartment we knew that we wanted somewhere quiet, with good views, with attractive swimming pools and gardens, that we could walk from and enjoy the countryside. We are delighted that we found Anarita as it has all of these things.

What makes this apartment unique

The quiet village environment is an excellent base for your visits to the hustle and bustle of the busier tourist spots in the area. If Bar Street in Paphos suits some of your party while others want a quiet drink on the terrace, you have a choice! With comfortable terraces, three pools to choose from and tavernas just round the corner you don't have to leave the village if you want to stay home while others go sightseeing or play their sport. My husband can help you with your golf arrangements, I can help with tennis and my daughter with climbing. We have young grandchildren so we know where they like to go and we are very happy to lend you equipment, toys and books. Anarita is pretty and unspoilt, the sun usually shines and the apartment has everything you'll need for a happy holiday.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were very pleased to receive this review from a Swiss couple who are hoping to return.

"We spent the last two weeks of September in Anarita Chorio at the Penthouse of Judith and Alan Cartwright. Thanks to the excellent directions from Judith, it was no problem for us to find our holiday apartment, which is about twenty minutes away from Paphos.

The bright and spacious penthouse was spotless clean. All the appliances and the air conditioning worked without problems and the kitchen was equipped with everything you could want. We really loved the place and felt at home in this lovely apartment and especially enjoyed the large terrace with a beautiful view over the land to the sea. The colorful sunsets enchanted us every day anew.

We do recommend the penthouse in Anarita Chorio to all those people who like to be a little away from the big tourist centers in a relaxing and beautiful surrounding".

Spectacular terrace view

  • 5 of 5

This was the fourth time we stayed in this comfortable and well-maintained flat. And we are preparing for a fifth stay later this year. We love the terrace with the spectacular view of the suroundings including the sunsets into the sea. The three well equipped bedrooms have made it possible to invite friends outside the family to come and stay for a while. The kitchen with all necessary utensiles makes it easy to live an everyday life in preparing the fresh food from the well sorted supermarket fairly close to the village.

Owner's Response: We are delighted that you feel at home in our apartment and that we'll see you again later in the year for your annual visit. We know that golf plays a big part in your lives when you are here and we feel very fortunate that we have three excellent golf courses within 15 minutes' drive. The views from the terrace are indeed spectacular!

Brilliant 10 night stay x

  • 5 of 5

I have just returned from an amazing 10 night stay with my family, which includes my 19 month old grandson. The apartment was equipped with everything we could possibly need, and more! My grandson was well catered for with books and toys. Having all the linen and towels provided was a definite bonus! The pool area was clean and we'll maintained. We were very lucky to have most of our stay the pool to ourselves! We really enjoyed our stay and the vicinity is great as it's not too far away from Paphos and the beach. Thanks again to Judith and Alan We will definitely be recommending to our friends x

Fabulous Baby Friendly Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We've just come back form a week in this fabulous spotless apartment in a great location with great views.

Travelling with 2 small children (a 2 year old and a 7 month old) is always going to be a challenge but Judith and Alan went out of their way to make things easier. They provided a walker for the baby, toys, beach toys and books as well as a cot, complete with bedding, and a highchair. Touches such as a beach umbrella and cool bag were much appreciated as well.

As we were unable to get a hire car organised immediately, Alan even took us to the supermarket on the first day!

The apartment was spotless, even though we had only booked at the last minute. We would definitely recommend staying here and hope to return soon.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to meet you and the children; we are so pleased that you enjoyed your week in the apartment. We always try to tailor the extras to the party of guests who are coming to stay. We have young grandchildren of our own so are fully equipped to add the bits and pieces that are appreciated when away from home! We look forward to seeing you again.

Fabulous Spring Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous holiday and thoroughly enjoyed staying in such a modern complex. My boys (11 and 13) made good use of the pool. The apartment was clean and well equipped and perfect for self-catering. Alan and Judith were very helpful and supplied us with wonderful notes on how to use everything, where to shop, dine and places to visit. April is a glorious time to visit with all the spring flowers and not as hot as the summer months. The apartment is only 10km from Paphos, easy to access the beaches and a quiet location. We hired a car and were able to explore the West Paphos region and went up the Troodos Mountains. We would definitely recommend other families visit and would love to return ourselves.

Owner's Response: We are very pleased that you had a fabulous holiday and enjoyed the spring weather. Paphos has over 300 days' sunshine a year so it's an excellent holiday destination all year round! We hope to see you again.

A lovely relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the apartment with family, including 4 month old grandchild. Great for all 3 generations. The facilities were really good with comfortable beds, a cot and other equipment provided for the baby and a pool just below the apartment. It was immaculately clean and had everything we needed. With a hire car we were able to explore the local area and Paphos. There are good sports facilities nearby at Aphrodite Hills and Elea for my husband, who plays tennis and golf, as well as a good choice of restaurants within walking distance. Would particularly recommend Olivia in Anarita village for a special meal out. Mostly we cooked at the apartment which has everything you need for self-catering. The owner, Judith, is particularly welcoming and answered any questions we had. Would definitely recommend for a family and would have no hesitation in going back as a couple or with friends. A really good location for anyone wanting to stay away from the tourist hotspots and enjoy something of the real Cyprus.

Notes on accommodation: The apartment was new for the 2011 season, in a development that opened in 2010. Most of the units are town houses grouped around one of the three pools. There is just one apartment block at the top of a gently sloping hillside site, surrounded by countryside, with our apartment facing south towards the coast. The gardens are well landscaped and there is a small play area for children with swings and a roundabout. The apartment has a dedicated covered parking space next to the front door of the block. Outside: The outside areas are a feature of the property. Facing to the south, off the main living area, is a large roof top terrace with 270 degree views of hills, fields, trees and the sea in the distance. You can see the planes landing at the airport but you can't hear them as the flight path is out at sea. Sometimes you can see the cruise ships go by. A dining table with 6 chairs, 2 comfortable loungers and two large parasols make relaxing and eating here a pleasure. Facing east, is a small covered terrace with a table and two chairs, ideal for quietly reading or just enjoying the view. There are three large shared swimming pools (15 x 13m, 16 x 8m and 16 x 11m) with loungers and umbrellas and surrounding landscaped areas. These pools have shower and toilet facilities. A few metres north of the site is open countryside where you can take pretty walks in any direction. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: All linen and bath towels are included. Please bring your own beach towels. Weekly change of linen and towels.
