Villa in Peristerona, Polis, Paphos, Cyprus - Peaceful Location On The Outskirts Of The Village Within Easy Walk To The Centre
Almond villa was completed in 2011 a 2 bedroomed villa on the outskirts of the pretty Cypriot village of Peristerona. It benefits from luxury fittings, a 12m and very secluded pool and a patio with outdoor furniture, bbq and electric awning if you need some respite from the sun! The garden is well stocked with local plants and adjacent to the pool pump room, we have a canopy in place for additional shade. From the village you have an ideal base to explore the stunning North west of the island and we include a car in the villa hire charge for your enjoyment. Polis and the Harbour of Latchi are within a 15 minute drive away and also within easy striking distance are the Baths of Aphrodite for lovely walks overlooking the coast and Pomos which has a scenic 25 minute drive to reach its pebbled beach which is excellent for snorkelling.

About the Owner
My husband and I have been planning our villa in Cyprus for many years and are delighted with the final product which was completed in late 2011. From finding the land to choosing the fittings the journey has been a great experience and we love our village, Peristerona, high above the nearby town of Polis. In the UK I am heavily involved in the holiday property letting market in North Yorkshire so have a real insight into what you as a visitor would expect from a luxury villa abroad. We hope you enjoy your holiday at Almond villa as much as we do. Judi
Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a lovely family holiday at Almond villa taking full advantage of the glorious weather, the swimming pool and BBQ. The car included in the rental was a real bonus. King family, October 2012.
The villa exceeded our expectations with its lovely village setting and superbly equipped for a thoroughly enjoyable holiday. The pool was a godsend for the 40 degree plus temperature in August. Millington family, August 2012.

This was the first time my husband and I have ever stayed in a villa, we normally go all inclusive to a hotel however we thought we would have a change this year and we were both absolutely delighted we did, from the moment we booked the villa Judi and Pete were very helpful in sorting out our taxi from the airport with Chris. What a lovely man he is, he stopped at a local shop so we could get some supplies as we landed at night and he also gave us a brief overview of the Island and the area we were staying in, when we arrived at Almond Villa is was dark so we decided to have an early night and explore the next day, when I woke up and went outside my first thoughts were WOW, we had hit the jackpot with this villa It is stunning, it far exceeded our expectations, the pool was perfect and the Villa is so spacious, we loved the village and also the local tavernas and resturants, a massive bonus was the car that is included with the property, , we will be booking for next year !!!
From all the villas we have been in throughout the years this has been the best by far. It is a modern villa fitted out to a superior standard where nothing has been forgotten. It has everything you could ever need and then some!! The large, secluded pool is kept spotless along with everything else. The garden is lovely, we even picked some limes. The location is perfect, the views spectacular and is so peaceful and relaxing. The use of the car was an added bonus, it even came with cool bags and a Euro for the trolley (they really do think of everything!!). Pete and Judi have been a joy. They couldn't have been more friendly and were only just a call away if we needed them (we didn't but it was a nice thought). Book this villa, I guarantee you won't be disappointed.
Fantastic Villa in beautiful hillside location. Everything that you could possibly need is at the Villa, the pool area is spacious and the garden is planned exquisitely.
The local villagers are really friendly and the nearby towns of Polis and Laatchi offer some excellent culinary opportunities and are within easy reach.
The layout of the accomodation is perfect and offers sun if you want it all day but also adequate shade when it gets too hot.
Internet connection was faultless and even British T.V. if you want it. A wonderful spot to explore the Troodos range from with magnificent scenery.
I have chosen Villa holidays for many many years and this will take some beating.
Thanks Pete and Judy....my family really enjoyed your Villa
Superb stay for the third time.
This was our third visit to the villa having also stayed in 2013 and 2011. The villa is fairly newly built, clean and furnished to an excellent modern standard with every mod con you can think of. Well equipped kitchen and huge bedrooms are of real benefit. The outdoor pool area (where you will spend plenty of time) is fantastic and has very comfortable outdoor seating, loungers and dining area with large BBQ. The recently added large canvas shaded area is also a real plus when using the pool.
The owners, Pete and Judi are very approachable and can't do enough to ensure you have a good holiday.
Peristerona is a very pretty, charming and sleepy small village where the locals are very welcoming.
The surrounding area is beautiful and is typically Cypriot, very unspoilt by tourism. The nearest main town is Polis and is around 15 mins in the car which is included with the villa. Polis has many good restaurants and bars which retain their Cypriot charm. Close to Polis is the seaside resort of Latchi, where you can spend a good day at the beach, hire a boat to explore further or try different water sports. Further afield in the car there are many places of interest and there is plenty of literature and suggestions in the villa to help you decide where to go should you wish to spend a day out exploring.
In summary I can strongly recommend this accommodation and part of Cyprus and we will hopefully return for a fourth time in 2015.
Thank you for an amazing holiday!
My wife, two kids (aged 13 & 11) and I spent two idyllic weeks at Almond Villa from 22 June to 5 July 2014.
We arrived at night and the outside pool lights were on which was an amazing sight as we climbed the steps to the pool area. The water temperature is naturally warm throughout summer and a night swim is highly recommended. You’ll find masses of storage space in the villa and we quickly settled in to enjoy the incredible tranquillity of the location for the first of 14 nights’ solid sleep.
The master bedroom is west-facing and shutters completely block out any of the morning sun. We therefore simply weren’t prepared for the magnificent view that awaited us once the shutters were opened. If you’ve seen the photos in the website gallery then picture 6 is what you can expect to see and but this doesn’t really do it justice.
Daylight also gave us the opportunity to appreciate the wonderful job the owners have done with the garden. This is the work of real love and skill which has clearly taken a considerable amount of thought and effort.
The drive to the Papantoniou supermarket in nearby Polis Chrysochous takes about 15 minutes through beautiful countryside. I took my TomTom and set the co-ordinates of both the supermarket (Lat. 35.03566, Long. 32.42957) and villa (Lat. 34.98853, Long. 32.49043) but you quickly learn the local landscape.
There are numerous excellent restaurants in the area. We dined at one of the owners’ recommendations, Chix Chox, in Polis. Drinks, mains and desserts came to just €55 and the food was delicious. Try the fresh local orange juice at only €1 a glass.
Latchi is a nearby picturesque harbour town on the way to the Baths of Aphrodite (also well worth a visit). We took a sunset boat trip (€70 including Cypriot barbeque) and anchored an hour later in the Blue Lagoon in Chamili Bay. The water here is crystal clear and very warm. We spent a couple of hours diving from the boat, swimming and snorkelling with the equipment provided free for your use.
The owners Pete and Judi can’t be faulted for the quality of the villa, from the garden and pool area, to the fittings and general decoration, and appear to have anticipated all of our needs for a truly exceptional holiday. They were at the end of a phone if anything was needed (which it wasn’t but the thought was appreciated) and they deserve real credit for the design and build of a truly memorable property.
Thanks for allowing us the use the use of your beautiful home.
From the Owner
“Peristerona is a typical, small Greek Cypriot village situated at c 1300 feet above sea level. We have views over surrounding olive groves and benefit from a very secluded patio and pool area. The villa is on the edge of the village with local shop within easy walking distance. Peace and tranquility are the buzz words here but we provide a car within the villa rental cost, for access to the Island's many and varied attractions. Polis and the lovely harbour resort of Latchi are within 15 mins drive away and from here you take boat trips or for the more adventurous, hire your own and explore the lovely coastline of the Akamas peninsula where you will find Turtles, flying fish and unspoilt beaches.”

“The property is conveniently all on one level with an emphasis on high quality fixtures and fittings both internally and externally. The 12m pool is the focal point outside where you can relax on the loungers disturbed only by the breeze running up the valley from the nearby Evretou dam. We have a car available for use ( min age 25 ) as part of the villa hire which means Polis and Latchi are within a 15 minute drive. In addition, there are 3 sets of golf clubs ( 2 mens and 1 ladies) for use for those who don't want the hassle and cost of taking your own on holiday but might just fancy a game in the glorious sunshine which is guaranteed thru the summer months.”
