Elevated Villa With Private Pool, Luxury Furnishings & Stunning Panoramic Views

Overview

Property

Updated: 07-May-2016
Villa in Neo Chorio, Polis/Latchi area, Paphos (South Cyprus), Cyprus - Just A 5min Walk To The Nearest Restaurant, Just A 5min Drive To The Shops And Bars Of Porto Latchi

Located at the very front of a hillside cluster of contemporary designed villas, Hillcrest enjoys uninterrupted panoramic views all across the curving coastline around Latchi Harbour - near Polis. With two double bedrooms and one twin (all air conditioned) two bathrooms, a private pool, lovingly landscaped gardens, alfresco dining facilities, a fully fitted kitchen, a full range of UK TV channels, fast capacity wifi, a paperbacks 'swap' library, a large fan cooled lounge with floor to ceiling sliding doors, two tempting hammocks for lazy afternoons and an irresistible chill-out roof terrace (for stargazing every evening) this special holiday villa will accommodate six people in the lap of luxury.

The architect derived lines of Hillcrest's exterior have been echoed inside with modern furnishings and decoration. Throughout, the villa has been designed to make you feel comfortable, relaxed and completely at home - not rattling around in some minimal equipped rental property.

A holiday at Hillcrest will give you access to some of the most beautiful and unspoiled parts of Cyprus, so you deserve a villa which reflects that - a villa that puts you right in the heart of the unique Akamas region, and a villa that feels like home every time you come back...

About the Owner

Villa De La Verne in the South of France (sleeps 12, property reference FR6952) and Hillcrest Villa in North West Cyprus (sleeps 6, property reference CY5127) are owned by some English friends who, for reasons not even they can fully explain, all seem to believe that no holiday is actually complete unless it involves several days of cleaning, redecorating, gardening, landscaping or apparently endless minor maintenance work.

The Chinese have a saying that warns having more than one home is the fastest way to madness. We think of this as an ongoing experiment to see how true that might be.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"In the three years we've been coming here, this is by far the best villa we have ever stayed in."



"Gorgeous. Why can't every villa have a sofa by the pool!"



"The owner has gone to extraordinary lengths to make this an exceptional place to stay."

What a great 10 days spent at Hillcrest villa , so tastefully presented with some very interesting design ideas inside and out , a true home from home , we spent most of our evenings lounging on the outdoor sofa taking in the fabulous views of the coastline and during the day the Villa was a great base from where we could discover Cyprus .

See you next year :0)

Owner's Response: Thanks guys, we're so glad you liked the villa. We were determined to decorate it like a home and not like another spartan rental property. It's such a nice location that it deserved some extra love and attention! Hopefully, we will have done even more work by the time you visit next - I have a project for the roof terrace in mind...

Location

From the Owner

If you are looking for seafood and sunshine, Cyprus is the place to go - but in peak season it's all too easy to end up with a lot of other people who are all there for the same thing - at the same time! We bought Hillcrest because it is an exceptionally well placed villa, in a wonderfully well hidden part of the island. You are just an hour from the airport, but once you get to the protected national park area of the Akamas Peninsula you could be a thousand miles from the nearest crowds...

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Paphos at 50 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Neo Chorio at 1 Kilometres Nearest Golf : Paphos at 40 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Neo Chorio at 1 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Latchi at 2 Kilometres

Special interest holidays:

The Akamas Peninsula is famous for its hiking, cycling and 4x4 off-road trails. You can undertake these activities on your own, or there are several local services which offer guided adventures. Porto Lacthi is also the local centre for all manner of water sports - from Scuba Diving to Wake Boarding. Again, the Villa Manager Paul can give you all the information you need, and arrange the best deals around!

Coast/Beach:

The nearest beaches are about 5mins in the car, but the entire area is dotted with tiny inlets and discreet beach-bars, so you will be spoilt for choice. Some beaches are obvious from the main roads, some need a 4x4 jeep to reach them. For the ultimate exclusivity, hire a boat from Porto Latchi and go find a private land-locked beach of your very own! If you are happy to hop in the car for 30mins, you can get down to the beautiful beaches near Paphos. Coral Bay or Lara Beach in particular.

Travel:

Hillcrest is in a particularly special part of Cyprus - fairly close to all the holiday crowds and facilities around Paphos, but easily far enough away to give you one of the most relaxed holiday experiences you'll ever find on the island. Paphos International airport is about an hour's drive. Paphos itself, with all its historical sites and modern tourist facilities, is about 40mins away. The town of Polis, with shops and restaurants, is about a 10min drive. You'll definitely need a car.

Distances:

Hillcrest is up on a hill, overlooking the ocean - while you are there you have endless opportunities for memorable day trips out in any direction. To your North and South are all the beaches, to your East are the Troodos Mountains (full of little villages, big monasteries, secret lakes, and tempting vineyards) and to your West is the spectacular uninhabited landscape of the Akamas Peninisula National Park - where you can hike, bike or 4x4 to all manner of hidden coves and high peaks.

Further Details:

For your everyday needs you won't need to go further than Polis. There are banks, shops and supermarkets all within a 10min drive. If you want to eat out, it's one of the best regions for fresh seafood you will ever find, and there are so many restaurants tucked away in the local towns and coastline that you could easily spend a month here and eat somewhere new every night. And indeed every lunch! (The local hospital is in Polis if you do decide to try this.) If you want to eat in, there are plenty of basic provisions to had in the shops at Porto Latchi or a wealth of fresh fish and BBQ friendly meat in the supermarket at nearby Polis.

Notes:

  • Notes on accommodation: Looking for instant local knowledge or travelling in a group of more than six people? No problem. Read on... Hillcrest villa, with its private pool and gardens, is cleaned, maintained and managed by an exceptionally capable and friendly English couple called Paul and Andrea. You'll meet them for a quick but comprehensive welcome briefing. They have lived nearby for nearly 10 years and can tell you absolutely everything you need to know about getting the most from your holiday, right from day one. As part of their VIP service they will also give you an exclusive discount card for use in specially selected local shops and restaurants. If you are travelling with a large group of friends or family, given sufficient notice Paul can also arrange for everyone to be accommodated in neighbouring villas, none of which will be more than a very short walk from your Hillcrest HQ! Outside: There is dedicated parking near the steps which lead down to your villa, with room for three cars if needs be. The private landscaped gardens have numerous areas for you to relax and enjoy the view. Rattan seating and dining furniture on the terraces allow you to eat, chat and chill in extreme comfort, while two hammocks (brought over specially from the UK) encourage you to lay back with a book (or a G&T) when lounging on the plump armchairs is just too strenuous! The 8mx4m pool is around chest height depth all the way across, and has sun loungers at either end if you're too hot to swim back! In the evenings you'll probably migrate to the bean-bag strewn roof terrace upstairs, from where you can see all the lights coming on across the surrounding bay below, and about a billion stars above... Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: All towels and luxury thread count bedlinen is provided, and you will of course fine a clean and crisp set of everything waiting for you on arrival. If you are staying for longer than a week then you'll get a linen change during your holiday as well. Other: All the bedrooms are air conditioned and the lounge is cooled by two ceiling fans.
