Another wonderful holiday
The villa is our home for the winter period so it is comfortably equipped with everything one needs, rather than just the basic essentials that one finds in villas that are used solely for letting.
We chose the villa because although close to Paphos and the beaches, it is away from the noise and traffic of the main tourist area, therefore a perfect place to relax at the end of the day listening to the cicadas by the pool.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. !
About the Owner
We are Zoe and Geoff and we live in Somerset. We are both retired and have decided that the warmth of Cyprus is better than the freezing cold of an English winter! We fell in love with Cyprus when we visited in 2009 and wanted to experience more of what we had seen on holiday. Slowly, during 2010, we were brave enough to decide that we would like a house there. Even at our time of life we thought an adventure would be in order !
'Yes! - Go for it! - Makes lot's of sense!' said lot's of our friends (we wonder why!) We love the warmth of the people in the village, especially our neighbours, who are English and live here permanently and are so helpful.
Guestbook comments from the owner
What a fabulous holiday in a wonderful location! This villa perfectly matched the website description which made a refreshing change. Perfect for us and our two children (one teenager and one baby). The pool entertained the children whilst we had endless BBQs and enjoyed the beautiful views. The local tavernas were friendly and reasonable and the area perfect for a family and friends holiday. If anything 2 weeks was not enough ! The villa was even more spacious than expected with great facilities. We had a mid holiday clean which is recomended if staying for 2 weeks. The pool was clear and spotless and lovely and warm. The owners, who apparently live here during the winter, obviously love the area and were very friendly and informative during the booking process. All in all we would highly recommend this villa and will definitely come back if we return to Cyprus. L Woodley, Lincs
Just a quick email to say how lucky you are to have such a beautiful villa and with that view too. J P

Another wonderful holiday
Having 8 of us, its never easy finding somewhere suitable with everything you need. When we found Villa Zoe we new our search was complete and the saving had begun. It's never easy making a big choice when your going so far away but all are worries were easily swept away by Zoe & Geoff. Absolutely fantastic and we couldn't of wished for better people to assist us in arranging everything. Nothing was a problem. The villa was everything we had wished for and the photos didn't do it justice as it was far more ideal than we originally thought. The villa was kitted out with everything families need so we felt quite at home. The pool was great and very welcoming in the hot sun and the rear eating area was just the ticket to cool down and enjoy our fresh dinners and a glass of wine or beer as the kids played. We would highly recommend this villa to any families or groups but definitely organise your transport. We left it till we got there but we're looked after by the lovely Wendy and Tony who care for the villa while the owners are away. Fantastic views and amazing sunsets were very pleasant and we are already thinking of going back. The villa is situated slightly out of paphos but just enough for you to go back to from trips out and enjoy some well earned rest and quiet. Overall another great holiday. Don't delay book it now. Thanks Zoe and Geoff. Best wishes The Pats xxx

“We looked at several areas in the west of Cyprus before opting for the villa at Armou. We liked the idea of being not too far from the action in Paphos whilst taking advantage of the gentle breezes that one needs in the summer. The coastal humidity at this time can be oppressive. Villa Zoe sits on an elevated plot on the lower slopes of Armou and from the pool side terrace we can see down the valley to Paphos and the Med.(8 kms away) We are only 20 mins from the airport, with the easiest of journeys along the motorway, whilst the same route takes you to the so beautiful Troodos Mountains or along the B6 coastal road to Pissori or Aphrodite's Rock. Westwards, we have the Akamas Peninsular and further round the coast the beautiful bay and marina at Latchi”

From the Owner
“Villa Zoe is so easy to get to and is not hampered by built up housing estates or bustling, busy, and poorly maintained, roads. Paphos and the coast are just 12 minutes away and at the end of the day one can get back to Armou and relax as the sun goes down over the sea. Well into the warm evening one can sit on the pool terrace sipping cocktails and listening to the Cicadas.The night sky is wonderfully huge with vivid colours and bright, pin point stars against the pitch black sky. Armou itself is very quiet, with a taverna and a coffee shop within strolling distance. It has wonderful views down the valley towards Paphos. Villa Zoe is one of four houses that stand on their own, surrounded by countryside.Villa Zoe stands in a 600 m plot with loads of room for relaxing or playing”
