About the property

Villa in Peyia, Coral Bay, Paphos, Cyprus - In A Secluded Location With Glorious Gardens, Courtyard, Grapevine, Old Village Bread Oven And BBQ

Architect designed to our specification, the villa is high on the hillside catching the cooling breezes blowing up from the sea. Almost every room has French windows opening on to large, deep balconies. This gives masses of shade in the heat of high summer as well as allowing our guests to get maximum benefit from the amazing views. Yet the pool and gardens, which are south facing, are bathed in sunlight all day long. A new villa has been incorporated into an old village stone house (formerly The Shoemakers House) that has been fully modernised throughout. Thus you will enjoy both the old world charm of village life and all the modern conveniences of today. In addition, this 'bringing together' of the two buildings means that there is masses of space and plenty of separation between rooms. The accommodation is thus ideal for couples who want to share, those who might be thinking of going on holiday with older parents or families with teenagers.

You will enjoy our lovely gardens, the warmth of the pool in the summer, swimming at night, sunbathing all day, chatting with the Cypriot neighbours, taking an evening stroll down to the restaurants and bars in the village square. Everything you will need for a memorable holiday is right on your doorstep. Indeed some of our guests have been known not to bother with a hire car, as they have found all they need for a relaxing holiday without leaving the village. However for those who like to explore the country Peyia is ideally placed. It is just 5 minutes in the car down to a choice of the best sandy bays in western Cyprus as they lie on the coast immediately in front of the villa. Slightly further afield (just 10 minutes drive) are more beaches, rock swimming, sea caves, cliffs, the local fishing harbour and the entrance to the magnificant Akamas National Park with its wild, remote hills and beaches. Here you can really get away from it all and, if you know where to go, find a beach that you will share with no one but the turtles.

We have been associated with Cyprus for over 40 years, having lived in 4 different places in different parts of the island. The Villa Iptamena is where we have brought our children on holiday all their lives. It is therefore a warm, welcoming place that feels like home. It is equipped to live in in comfort - we sometimes spend the whole winter in residence ourselves. It is our aim to share this with our guests and we try to offer the best possible holiday experience that we can. It is thus a matter of great pleasure to us when we see people coming back time after time (The record is held by one couple who have enjoyed no less than 13 holidays with us so far.) You will be more than welcome particularly should you try to beat that record. Visit our website at www.cyprusholiday.comze.com

About Peter

We have been in this wonderful village for 40 years, having been here longer than any other foreigners. You need only ask for 'Mr Peter' or 'Mr Peter's House' and the locals will usually know exactly what it is that you are talking about. Our children have grown up here and think of it as their home - even though we have never stayed more than a few months at a time. Originally we bought a little old village stone house. However 10 years ago we added the new villa and the pool. So now our guests are able to enjoy both the old world charm of village life and all the conveniences of modern living.

Peter purchased this villa in 1970

Why Peter chose Coral Bay Area

Peyia was the village that all Cypriots wanted to live in with its ideal climate, friendly people and laid back atmosphere. Although mass tourism has come to other parts of the island, this place still retains its charm. You will have the experience of living amongst local country people if you stay in our villa. The village is right on the edge of the National Park with its wild rugged beauty. Here you will find a deserted hilltop to picnic under a carob tree or a sandy beach all to yourself - apart from the greenback turtles. But above all it is the view. Laid out before you as you lounge on the verandah is 15 miles of glorious Mediterranean coastline.

What makes this villa unique

Most unusually for rentals in Peyia our villa is right in the heart of the village. You are only a short walk away down a hill to the village square with its bars, cafes and restaurants. As well as the coffee shops and tavernas there is a good range of local shops. Immediately below the village is Coral Bay with its sandy beaches and rocky coastline. The village bus will get you down here every 30 minutes from the road below the villa if you don't want to take your car. Your neighbours are all local village families. Most speak English and will always be pleased to offer advice and help to our guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"This villa is the one to pick in Peyia. I'ts the views you notice first, absolutly breathtaking, then the villa itself has everything you could possibly need. The gardens are beautiful and gets all day sunshine for the kids in the pool. The villa is spotless."

"Villa very very well equipped. Owners are very informative, helpful and very professional. Felt like I was an extra in Mama Mia as the villa is extremely quaint. We have already booked again for 2014 and cannot wait to return ! If its peace and quiet, but near enough to everything you need and want then visit the Villa Iptamena."

"Got everything you could possibly need. Really nice villa, gorgeous views, gardens and very private pool - with disco lights! Everything was spotlessly clean and very comfortable and it is not in the middle of a tourist trap."

"Great location near to all amenities but still very quiet. Coral Bay only 5 minutes by car. Villa is very spacious with everything you need for a great holiday."
