Carport.

History of the area: Cyprus is steeped in 5000 years of history,it has many fine archaeological sites including at least 3 amphitheatres.

In Paphos a 13th. century castle guards the harbour entrance and some of the most impressive mosaics in the world are found on the headland beyond the harbour.

The site of the tombs of the kings is well worth a visit as is the site of the Byzantine church where St.Paul was tortured while chained to a pillar.

Kolossi castle, once the base for the Crusaders, towers over the vineyards of Kolossi village, and not far away is the ancient stadium, where you can sit and imagine the screaming chariot races.All these sites are within a 30 minute drive of Villa Delphia.

The Troodos mountains which are very accessible to the Villa Delphia have a wealth of small villages, where vineyards,cherry orchards and goats abound.It is well worth planning a route taking in some of the villages, stopping at the local winery for a tasting, the potteries or to take in the dramatic views.

Beach and Coast: Villa Delphia is only a 2 minute drive to the sea and only a few Km. from Aphrodite's rock which is where the legendary daughter of Zeus and goddess of love and beauty emerged from the sea onto the rock.Swimming here is a joy in the early evening when the sea is calm.Folk law has it that if you swim round the rock 3 times you will be granted eternal youth

Pissouri bay is an attractive pebble & sany bay,usually quiet at either end while the centre has a variety of water sports including sailing and water skiing.You can hire a hoby cat or water skis by the hour.It is a 15 min. drive from villa Delphia along the beautiful coastline. The Akamas peninsular and nature reserve is a wonderful day out, pack a picnic and stop on the way at the sea caves and the little harbour of Agios Georgios.After that the road turns into a dirt track so a 4-wheel drive is recommended.If you enjoy off roading then there are lots of tracks to explore.Lara beach is beautiful.Turtles come ashore here to lay eggs

Eating out: There are a variety of restaurants and tavernas in the area within easy drive of Villa Delphia.The nearest is at the Secret valley golf club just 5 mins. from the villa.You do not have to be a member to use the facilities.It is stylish, in a beautiful setting overlooking the golf course and lake and a very pleasant venue for mid morning coffee or lunch.

There are several tavernas in the charming local village of Kouklia,5 mins. drive from Villa Delphia.They all serve good basic Greek food and wine at reasonable prices.

Every Wednesday through the summer you can join in a 'Greek evening' in the village square at Pissouri to watch the traditional dancing and entertainment and enjoy a substantial buffet supper.Vrakas Taverna is the place to book.'The Bunch of Grapes' is another lively restaurant with excellent service in an attractive courtyard.

Below the village at Pissouri Jetty there are more restaurants.

If you wish to travel further then Paphos has all tastes catered for.

About the Owner

Penny and I bought Villadelphia immediately after my retirement.It gave us a huge amount of interest and satisfaction to furnish it and create the large garden .We visit twice a year for extended breaks which we find very relaxing and enjoy having guests to stay in spring and autumn.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Many Thanks for letting us rent your villa - it was absolutely fantastic and totally made the holiday - we loved seeing round the island but all the facilities made it a most welcome sanctuary when we wanted to escape the heat... must admit sitting under your gorgeouse flowering blooms for an early morning cup of tea, swimming in the pool late at night, watching the sun set and beautiful sea view - wish I was there now. If you need any more recommendations for your web site please add us.

Have recommended to all our friends and already know we definitely want to come back.

Idyllic Villa if you crave privacy and luxury

  • 5 of 5

Hi Ben and Penny - what a brilliant villa you have. It was our first visit to Cyprus and we are very picky villa people but your property was everything you advertised it as. On this occasion we wanted a very peaceful quiet holiday yet the ability to find nice places to eat out in the evening. Ticked all of the boxes. Loved it all. The lizard joining us daily on the wall and the bird who decided to come into the kitchen and visit us were added bonuses. Even found a pretty little beach not far away to while away one of the days. Lots of pool equipment to keep both adults and children amused. Very easy directions from the airport too. Thank you. Will book again if visiting Cyprus

Superb Peace

  • 5 of 5

Tranquil, quiet, spacious holiday home. We found ourselves forced to Cyprus for a friend's wedding and didn't want the typical Pathos chaos. Villa Delphia was a delight. 15 minutes from the airport yet beautifully quiet and just a few minutes away from the more 'real' Cyprus treasures. Fully kitted out and cool for those hot days - the pool was great and kept really clean. Spacious rooms, home from home kitchen, great bbq (including matches and charcoal!) Definitely recommended.

Review of Villa

  • 5 of 5

Dear Ben,

Thank you very much for so kindly providing the Villa for the use of Lisa and I. We had a fantastic time and really enjoyed the location, which was easy to get to but far enough away from it all to relax.

The villa has been designed beautifully and the covered terrace by the pool provides pleasant shade by the pool.

Thank you once again for renting us the villa for our use.

Best Wishes

Marcus

Location

From the Owner

Penny and I chose the villa because of it's position overlooking the mediteranean sea with views to the troodos mountains behind.We love the clarity of the light and colours of the country surrounding the villa.We are close enough to the villge of Kouklia for an evening out at a taverna without having to drive miles for a meal. Local people are so friendly and when we go back to Cyprus after months away it is as if we never left the island.
