Overview

About the property

Luxury, total privacy, sea views, heated pool, UK tv, Sky, WiFi, outside bar

Astéri is a unique, completely private, and very special, with the most amazing and dramatic views all the way around and down to the sea and the Akamas Peninsular and Blue Lagoon - it will truly take your breath away! Check our reviews.

Just a 25 min drive from Paphos, it feels like a different world!

Astéri is a wonderful 4/5 bedroom villa (1 bedroom/bathroom is normally closed off for 8 persons or less) Although quite large it is suitable for smaller parties too, and even couples will find it a wonderful escape with a magical feel all of its own.

Perched above the delightful village of Steni, Astéri enjoys complete privacy and is not overlooked in any way - however it is not isolated at all - being just a minute hop down to the village and the lovely local cafe's there, and then just a few minutes drive to Polis Old Town and Latchi Marina with its contemporary bars and restaurants overlooking the yachts, and miles of great beaches.

Paphos is just a 25 minute drive away, and the airport about 40 mins. Larrnaca airport is a one and a half hour drive.

The property is ranch-style, all on one level, with two bedrooms/bathrooms in one wing, and two/three bedrooms/bathrooms in an opposite wing, with the living areas in the middle. This allows a good degree of privacy for families or if sharing.

Please note - there is a 5th bedroom and bathroom which can be opened up on request for larger parties. (extra fee applies, which is calculated when you put in the number of your party when you send an enquiry) Otherwise the property remains as four bedrooms/four bathrooms.

Throw open the patio doors on your first morning, and you will find the intoxicating aroma of jasmine & the truly amazing all around views over the mountains, villages and citrus groves down to the sea quite overwhelming. In the evenings the sunsets over the sea and Akamas Peninsular will truly amaze you - and after dark there is some star show!

Astéri offers luxurious and hugely spacious outdoor living with a wonderful shaded lounge area with sofa seating for 20!, a 50" flat screen for outdoor evening movies, a 10 x 5 meter pool (heated if required), and a large dining area within a huge wooden pergola, alongside which is a large stone BBQ kitchen.

Plus we now have a wonderful outside cocktail bar with fridge and music system - here you can perch on a stool, cocktail in hand, and watch the sun set dramatically over the hills and Akamas Peninsula - just magical!

Inside the villa is cool and luxurious with good quality furnishings and works of art, much more of a home than a holiday house. There is a 50" tv in the lounge with satellite channels and access to all live UK tv channels plus all Sky movies, and sports channels in HD, there is also a DVD player (plus library). There is a bluetooth/stereo dock also.

We have good speed unlimited wifi throughout the villa (and works outside too inc the bar). We provide an ipad, printer and local mobile phone for your use. There is a good mobile phone signal.

There is central heating (extra cost) and a real fire for the cooler evenings, plus pool heating if required (extra cost).

Astéri really is unique, and one of a kind, with a position and views that are hard, if not impossible, to beat. It is not your average holiday rental at all. It will be our permanent home one day, but in the meantime we are happy to share it with careful guests.

We can organize a hire car for you, which includes a private transfer to the villa on arrival (and on return to the airport) which makes for a much more relaxing way to arrive, especially if at night - all this is included in the normal hire cost - a service unique to us as we use our local car hire firm a lot.

There is no set arrival/departure day, so we are quite flexible. Minimum stay is seven days, and any number of nights over this. Please note this property does not accept younger all same sex groups.

A luxury and very private Villa

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic week in this Villa (2nd holiday this year) - have done Villas in Cyprus for a good few years now and this is one of the best - everything is accurate as stated on the Website and whilst extremely private is located close to Polis where you can get everything you need and socialise - would recommend without hesitation and would certainly return if available in the future.

Super Villa

  • 5 of 5

If I could give 7 stars I would. We booked this villa for a pre Christmas break to visit our family in the area. The weather could have been a bit kinder, but the villa certainly lived up to expectations, in fact exceeded. We arrived after dark to find the villa lit up, with lights on inside and soft music playing, and a welcome hamper waiting. What a great way to arrive. In the morning we were expecting a good view – what we got was spectacular, beyond words really. We managed a couple of great sunsets too, but the weather let us down the rest of the time, well it was December, which also meant we didn’t use the fab outside bar as much as we would have liked. We had pool heating, which helped a lot. Inside the villa is great, loads of room to spread out and very comfortable, though we found we did need the central heating on for an hour or so on a couple of evenings. The owner was very helpful throughout the booking process. We are now trying to arrange summer dates for a return as we all want to come back and experience this wonderful villa at its best. If you are lucky enough to stay here you certainly won’t regret it.

Wonderful

  • 4 of 5

What a fantastic villa, the location is superb, Steni is an immaculate village. The photos and listing details on Owners Direct accurately represent this amazing villa. It is Totally private with wonderul views, just heavenly. The booking was easy and Graham was very helpful.

We used the local car hire company recommended by Graham, great service, we were met at the airport which was handy, we arrived in the dark. The car was older than you would get from the big car hire companies but it got us from A to B.

The villa was lit up on the hillside on our arrival it looked magical and certainly impressed. The local manager popped in to see us on our first morning, it was lovely to know someone was on hand, just in case.

I would certainly recommend this villa to others and would consider going back. what a great place. The local cafe/restaurant gave a very friendly welcome, good food and was great value for money. There are some lovely restaurants in Polis and Latchi is lovely for a wander.

A relaxing holiday!

Fab villa, fantastic views, very peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Impressive villa with everything needed for a comfortable stay. The outside area is fabulous with lovely views. We wanted a peaceful, relaxing week away and the location is perfect for that. The villa is not overlooked at all so it's very private. 10 minutes drive to the nearest town (Polis) where there is a supermarket and plenty places to eat. Within 2-3 minutes drive from the villa is the Water Mill cafe which is good for snacks and drinks and to pass the time of day. The only thing that could be improved is the pool - the bottom of the pool needs to be resurfaced, but despite that we still thoroughly enjoyed our time at Asteri and would highly recommend it. We would book this villa again if we come back to Cyprus.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice comments, and very pleased you enjoyed the villa. Regarding the pool, you are right, it is due some maintenance over the winter, so hopefully all good and ready for 2016, as well as a few other improvements in general. I really hope to see you all back again one day.

Location

Car: necessary

Coast/Beach:

There are lovely sandy and shingle beaches with beach bars and waterside restaurants overlooking the new marina to the east of Latsi, just 8-10 minutes drive away. Speed and sailing boats can be hired here and also snorkelling and Padi diving arranged. There are long sandy beaches with sun loungers. Just a short walk from the villa you will find Neromylos Coffee Shop, the coolest coffee shop in Cyprus, selling iced frappé coffee, cold beer, genuine Cypriot cuisine and desserts to die for!

Travel:

Paphos airport approx 45 minutes drive. Larnaca airport approx 1 hour 40 mins. Car hire is recommended. We can arrange this locally, and they will pick you up from the airport and take you to the villa (and vice versa on departure) All included in the car hire price! This is great if you arrive to Cyprus after dark and do not want to drive yourself. Although we provide good directions, so it is not too difficult to drive yourself.

Distances:

Steni 1 minute drive / 5 min walk

Persterona 2 minutes drive

Polis - 8 minute drive

Latsi/Latchi - 10 minutes drive

Lysos - 8 minutes drive

Paphos - 35 minutes drive

Supermarkets 2/3 min drive

Further Details:

Steni is an unspoilt and very charming little Cypriot village which has a wonderful and very interesting museum with one of the best laid out and fascinating displays of Cypriot life anywhere on the island. It also has a great cafe run by the lovely Dawn & Mathew.

There are three very well stocked shops, minimarkets and fruit markets within a few minutes drive from Asteri.

The relaxed and atmospheric Old Town of Polis is around a 8 minute drive. There are winding streets, small interesting shops and little taverns in the old town. The newer part of Polis has some larger supermarkets and bars, some showing sport, restaurants, banks, fruit markets and lots of shops selling tourist items and daily wares. The Baths of Aphrodite are 11km west of Polis and around a 10 minute drive. Surrounded by fig trees and the sound of running water, it is a nice spot to spend an hours or so away from the heat.

There is horse riding available near to the villa, trekking through the mountains in nearby Lysos is a perfect way to get close to nature and take in the magnificent views. There is also a watersports centre in Latsi. Tylliria is an untouched, tranquil forested territory with a few beaches. The drive there is very scenic. Head for Pomos which is a lush area with olive trees, citrus groves and vines.
