About John Barrowcliffe

We have owned Villa Sofia for 10 years now and go to the villa ourselves for our holidays at least once a year. We have 4 children aged between 13 and 5 who all love their time at the villa. We have tried to kit the villa out with everything you could possibly need whilst on holiday and most people that stay at the villa comment on how homely and relaxed the villa is.

John Barrowcliffe purchased this villa in 2003

Why John Barrowcliffe chose Coral Bay

We always wanted a holiday home in the sun and Cyprus was our number one choice of destination. With its almost 10 months of sunshine every year, beautiful beaches and amazing cuisine we love coming back to year after year.

We bought Villa Sofia because its location was just perfect. A few minutes walk to restaurants and within 10 minutes of the beaches. With 4 boys we are able to relax very quickly once we arrive and have everything within a hands reach.

Even thought the villa is in the heart of Coral Bay, its in a private cup de sac that is quiet and undisturbed which allow for a really relaxing time

Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Villa the 20th - 30th Sept 2017 the villa has everything you need, very well equipped. As we both lead very busy lives it was ideal to relax and chill out in all the outdoor areas we ate alfresco most nights. Although we did go the short walk into the main strip where there were a lot of really good restaurants and bars .

The villa is in the perfect location if you want either a relaxing holiday or a party holiday. We would highly recommend Villa Sofia

Great villa and great location.

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in this villa and found it very spacious, clean and well equipped. It is within easy walking distance to all the restaurants, bars and supermarkets and reasonably close to the beach. We had a lovely relaxed 2 weeks as despite being close to all the amenities it is situated in a quiet cul-de-sac. We enjoyed Coral Bay and it is ideal for families, there is also a great bus service into Paphos. We would happily stay in this Villa again.

I booked John's villa last minute and the communication was excellent! Set in a quiet street, you're only minutes walk away from the main strip of bars shops and restaurants and only a 10 min walk from the main supermarket!

The villa was clean and tidy and much bigger than expected. Thoroughly enjoyed our week here and would highly recommend John and his villa to any family

Lovely spacious villa with everything you need.

  • 4 of 5

Great villa in a nice residential area but walking distance from the bars and restaurants. Lovely pool and outdoor area. Good air conditioning (essential) and everything you need for a relaxing stay. Owners were lovely to deal with. Would stay here again if I come back to Coral Bay. We hired a speed boat which I would thoroughly recommend - make sure you also get the doughnut to pull! Would also recommend Samisen restaurant and the Thai restaurant in Coral Bay.

Owner's Response: Dear Carmella, Thanks for your feedback. Its great to hear you enjoyed the villa and pool area. We've hired a boat on a couple of occasions ourselves from Laatchi - the donut is great fun too. Please do get in touch if you decide to return to Paphos. Best regards Natalie & John.

Convenient, comfortable, well situated

  • 4 of 5

The property is well situated for all amenities, but in a quiet area off the main thoroughfare Coral Bay and Corallia beach, (my favourite), are both 5 to 10 minutes away.with a regular bus sevice if required. property was very clean and comfortable with safe outdoors area providing plenty of shade if required.

approx 10 minute walk to the Coral Bay Beach


nearest airport - Paphos (approx 30 minute drive)


Coral Bay is approx 20 minute drive north of Paphos

Further Details:


The Coral Bay Beach is an easy 10 minute walk from the villa and is widely regarded as one of the best natural beaches in Cyprus. Coral Bay beach is a European Blue Flag beach and is set in a Bay which makes it extremely safe for children. There is a fantastic beach bar at the far end of the beach which serves food, drinks and cocktails all day and evening - its a perfect spot to watch the sun go down...

Scuba Diving and Water Sports

Scuba diving in Coral Bay is very popular and there are schools that will teach beginners and conduct excursions for more experienced divers. For keen divers, you must visit the wreck of Zenobia; one of the largest wreck dive sites in the world. There are great water sports down on the beach and they are pretty reasonably priced. You can try anything from the ever popular banana boats to jet skiing, windsurfing and water skiing or take things a bit easier with a pedalo! For a great day out head over to the Aphrodite Water Park in Paphos - its great fun and extremely clean and safe. If you are real water lovers, go up to Latchi harbour and rent one of the speed boats for half a day. Its a great way to see the coastline and a great day out.


Coral Bay nightlife can be as quiet or as vibrant as you wish. Coral Bay itself is home to some lovely taverns and cocktail bars, or you can take the short taxi ride to Paphos and sample the late night bars and nightclubs. For those that want to stay local but want to stay out late, there are a couple of great bars and a nightclubs in Coral Bay that stay open to the early hours.
