Overview

About the property

"Anthos" Apartment in Theseus Village, Aphrodite Hills, Kouklia, Paphos, Cyprus

"Anthos" is an open plan, contemporary furnished, spacious 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, Ground Floor apartment, just as you enter Theseus Village. Two of the three bedrooms lead on to the private decked garden excellent for sunbathing and al fresco dining, with fantastic views over the sea, perfect for watching the sun go down at sunset. It is minutes away from the large communal pool and smaller children's shaded pool. The ground floor location makes the apartment ideal for wheelchair users, children and less mobile guests.

The apartment comfortably sleeps 6 people, with a King size master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and shower; a Double bedroom and a twin bedded room (the twin beds can be zip linked to create a 3rd double bed) who share a shower room so it is ideal for extended families or 3 couples to holiday together.

The living space has a large Ikea corner sofa with TV/DVD player and a dining room, however most of the eating tends to be done on the decked veranda with its rattan dining table and chairs, and a gas BBQ. There is also 6 sun loungers so you can sunbathe in privacy on the decking

The kitchen is well equipped with an electric oven and hob, dishwasher and washing machine and large American style fridge freezer.

There is air conditioning throughout the apartment as well as WiFi, which can be purchased for a small fee ( £30 per week)

All bedding and towels are provided including a bath sheet, hand towel and pool towel per person. The arrival and departure clean are included in the price and for stays of more than 2 weeks, a mid stay clean and change of bedding and towels is also provided.

Aphrodite Hills Resort boasts a fabulous selection of restaurants and activities, including golf, tennis, football, riding, the Retreat spa and a gym. There is a supermarket within walking distance and the Anoi pub (the essentials!) as well as a great choice of restaurants: Italian, Asian, Greek, however we tend to prefer the more authentic tavernas in the local villages, such as Kouklia, Mandria and Pissouri.

Car hire isn't essential however we tend to find it easier to pick up a rental car from the airport as you then have freedom throughout your holiday

There is a wealth of guidebooks and things to do/see in the apartment however please do not hesitate to email me any questions as I have been holidaying in Cyprus for over 20 years so can help support with flights, car rental and places to visit

About Sue Carvell

My husband Neil and I live and work full time in the UK, however love holidaying in Cyprus whenever we get the chance. It is our second home... in the sun. I called the apartment "Anthos", which is the Greek word for Blossom (my pet name as a child), in memory of my Dad who left me some money to put towards the property which makes my Cyprus home even more special to me.

Sue Carvell purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Sue Carvell chose Aphrodite Hills

I have been holidaying in Cyprus for over 20 years and bought "Anthos" apartment in Aphrodite Hills in 2008 as it is a beautiful resort in a stunning area of Cyprus. There are fantastic facilities on your doorstep, such as golf, tennis, the Spa, restaurants and shops. Aphrodite Hills is less than 15 mins drive from Paphos airport which makes it ideal for a long weekend away. There are great local tavernas and beaches which I would love to share with you to make your holiday in Cyprus as memorable as possible.

What makes this apartment unique

"Anthos" Apartment is a real "home from home", beautifully appointed, with a private decking area at the rear of the property with shading from the sun, great to enjoy al fresco dining and sunbathing. The communal pools are less than 1 minute away. You can walk to all the facilities on the resort from the apartment if you don't want to drive or hire a car. I hope you enjoy our home as much as we do!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Everything you sent us was very helpful. The location of your apartment in the resort is really convenient, compared to friends staying in a villa quite a hike away. Your apartment had everything we needed" The Marshall Family, Surrey

Fabulous holiday

  • 5 of 5

I took my daughter and grandson away on holiday to this lovely apartment which was very spacious, had everything we needed, was close to the pools and all the shops and restaurants were within walking distance. My grandson loved all the sporting activities: football, golf and tennis. We did hire a car however most days we were happy to stay by the pool and on the patio. It was great to eat all our meals outside and the gas BBQ was an added bonus. The owner provided lots of helpful suggestions of where to shop and eat, and we really enjoyed the local tavernas in Kouklia, less than 10 mins drive away. My grandson can’t wait to go back again!

Nice Apartment

  • 3 of 5

The apartment isn't where I expected it to be - so please be aware this is not positioned around the pool, its down a path and across the road, however it is very close and a lot of families with young children tend to stay around the pool, so you will avoid the early morning noise from young children.

Apartment is a good size and has nice out door space - there is a view, but unfortunately when we stayed they had let the hedge grow up to high, so it wasn't visible.

The only downside to our stay were the beds, as the mattresses were rock hard and gave myself and my mum a bad back, the neighbours upstairs are permanent residents and were very inconsiderate in the mornings with playing a very loud television (and in the evenings)-despite being asked to be more mindful-nothing changed, so if you value a lay in, you wont get it if they are still living above.

I have been to Aphrodite many times, it has changed a lot over the years, as Thompsons have now taken over the hotel during the summer season, it now has big cages for football and slides & fun area for kids - so if your a family with young children its great, but I have always gone for the views and the 5 star feel of the square and restaurants and in my opinion that has gone.

Definitely get a car, as the local supermarket has got even more expensive - I mean ridiculous prices (24 euros for 4 pieces of salmon)

Theseus village has a lovely pool and especially for little children, but a lot of the beds were broken around the pool.

I am not being negative, as Aphrodite has always been my favourite place to stay for the past 6 years, but it has changed and my review is open and honest.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for taking time to feedback on your stay in my apartment. It is obviously hugely disappointing for me to lose my previous 100% 5 star scores however I have followed up on all your constructive comments. I am sorry you haven't enjoyed your recent stay in Aphrodite Hills resort as much as on previous visits.

Fabulous apartment

  • 5 of 5

My family of five has just returned from a fantastic two week holiday in Anthos. It's a beautiful, spacious apartment which is extremely well equipped. It's perfect for family holidays as it's located close to the village pool area which is suitable for children of all ages. Very much hoping to return next year. Thanks Sue!

Just like home

  • 5 of 5

Great resort with lots to do with the family. Great base to visit the likes of Kouklia, Pafos and Pissouri. Authentic atmosphere at the Cyprus night at Gabriel's in Kouklia village. The apartment is within walking distance to the whole resort. It was a fabulous sporting holiday with tennis, golf and football.

The apartment was very clean, spacious and had everything we needed, a real home from home.

The Cove
Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

The nearest beach is the Cove at the entrance to Aphrodite Hills, with sunbeds, and a beach cafe (5 mins by car). There are many other local beaches with great restaurants, sunbeds and water sports in the area: Pissourri, Avdimou, Melanda, Kourion, all within 30 mins drive. Melanda beach with its famous fish restaurant is a personal favourite and less than 20 mins away.

Travel:

Paphos is the nearest airport, 17 km, a 15 minute drive from the resort however Larnarca airport is only 112 km, an hour and a quarter away, and has a wider selection of flights. The resort is well sign posted from the motorway from both airports. Car hire is recommended but not essential.

Distances:

Aphrodite Hills has its own Village Square (within walking distance), with a wide range of restaurants, supermarket, ATM, Costa Coffee, Haagen Dazs ice cream, designer shops, kids clubs and sports activities such as tennis, golf and horse riding

Kouklia (5 mins) is the nearest village with a great selection of tavernas where you can experience the real Cyprus. Other local villages: Pissourri, Mandria (both 15 mins) also provide great local restaurants and shops.

Further Details:

The resort has an award winning Spa - worth a visit - including a well equipped gym and offers fitness classes, including yoga and Zumba.

Aphrodite Hills is a great base to explore the South of the Island, with all the ancient Roman sites such as Tombs of the Kings, Paphos Mosaics, the Fort, Aphrodite Rocks, Kourion amphitheatre all within half an hours drive. The Troodos mountains are beautiful with stunning scenery, lots of monasteries to visit and local vineyards en route (Kolios is a favourite - excellent lunch). Fassouri water park, on the outskirts of Limassol, is a popular water park with children.

The closest large supermarket is Papantonio in Pissourri, otherwise I would recommend a visit into Paphos or Limassol to do a big food shop.
