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 Area

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

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.

Fantastic Villa.

  • 5 of 5

Recently spent a week in this lovely villa. It is just as described by the owner. Both inside and outside are very clean and spacious. Really enjoyed the privacy that comes with your own space and pool and would definitely recommend for either couples or families. The villa is in a quiet area, yet really close to all the bars and restaurants so you don't have to have a car if you don't want to. The local supermarket will deliver your shopping (and give you a lift back as well) and has everything you need. If you do hire a car there are lots of great places to explore. The whole experience of renting the villa was easy and the owner very accommodating. Would definitely recommend, 10 out of 10. Will be returning soon!!

The Perfect Family Villa

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently enjoyed a week long family holiday at this villa with our two children. We've been to this side of the island for the past few years and this villa was easily the nicest and most relaxing. It's located in a quiet residential neighborhood of Coral Bay yet it's within easy walking distance to some great restaurants, bars, the beach and supermarket. The house itself was fantastic, very spacious, clean and everything worked perfectly. Outside is a nicely shaded eating area where we enjoyed evening BBQ's. The pool is perfectly sized for a family and the area around it formed a lovely suntrap. Overall we had a great vacation and will be returning for a longer stay next year.

Great Villa in the best location

  • 5 of 5

My two teenage children and I had discovered Coral Bay in 2015, staying in a villa the other side of the town and a bit of a walk to town, beach etc. We loved the place so went back again. Great restaurants, beach, things to do, supermarket etc.

I knew a friend had stayed at Villa Sofia previously and had said that the villa and location of it were perfect for our holiday.

They were not wrong!! Exactly as described online and by my friends.

The villa is well designed, well kept, has an excellent pool and outdoor area and basically has more than everything you need to just fill the fridge and crack on.

Even though it is a two minute walk to Coral Bay strip, the villa is very quiet and private.

I would recommend a car so you can explore beyond Coral Bay - some wonderful lunch spots and easier supermarket trips. That said this villa has everything very nearby so you don't need the car.

Owner and manager were very easy to deal with and the manager in Cyprus was very quick to respond to a couple of questions I had which was great.

Overall, this is excellent for many reasons and we had a brilliant holiday.

I would highly recommend Villa Sofia and Coral Bay for couples or families. We will be going back!

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.
