The pool area is within direct line-of-sight from the kitchen and sitting room - an important safety consideration if you have young children to supervise (we know what its like!). The full-size, 8m x 4m, pool faces west and so enjoys excellent sun from mid-morning until sunset. The terrace and pool area have golf views, and have a marvellous sense of space and light, while enjoying the privacy afforded by the established garden and adjoining trees. These features combine to make Villa Destu one of the prime locations in Hestiades Greens.

The Paphos region
With year round sunshine, soothing sea breezes and a wealth of things to see and do, Paphos Disrtrict is the ideal destination for young families and sunlovers of all ages. The vibrant town of Paphos, with its bars, restaurants and beaches, is only 20 mins from the Resort. Around its delightful harbour area you will find the Frankish Castle (which hosts many cultural activities during the season), the famous Paphos mosaics and the Tomb of the Kings.
Five minutes drive from the villa is ‘Petra tou Romiou’ (Aphrodite’s Rock), where Aphrodite, the goddess of love, is said to have emerged from the sea. A few kilometres beyond lies Pissouri, a small traditional village, with a delightful beach and a broad selection of restaurants and shops circling its historic village square. Further eastwards, the ‘Kourion’ is not to be missed with its wonderful amphitheatre, ancient baths and mosaics.
Local beaches are plentiful and include: ‘The Cove’ 3 mins drive from the villa, as well as Aphrodite’s Rock and Pissouri (with its wealth of water sports) and Avdimou - which is home of the Zias Beach Club.
Further afield, the beautiful Akamas Peninsula and the scenic Troodos Mountains, with their traditional villages and pine and cedar forests, are two areas well worth a visit.
With its varied beaches and landscapes, citrus groves, olive and carob trees, traditional villages, ancient ruins, sport, beaches and beautiful climate Paphos District is an excellent year round destination.
In a spectacular setting overlooking the very spot where Aphrodite, Goddess of Love, is said to have emerged from the waves lies Aphrodite Hills - Cyprus' first fully integrated 5* resort. If holiday luxury is what you desire, then Aphrodite Hills is the place for you. Officially opened in Spring 2005 the resort is surrounded by protected natural parkland & incorporates two gently sloping plateaux, dotted with olive and carob trees, that straddle a spectacular and unspoilt ravine. With its excellent golf, tennis, health spa, fitness training, and equestrian facilities, plus a wide selection of restaurants and bars around the scenic village square, a 5* Intercontinental Hotel and private beach facilities, the Resort has something for everyone.
The resort is within easy reach of both Paphos & Limassol. Paphos International Airport (PFO) is less than 15 minutes drive, while Larnaca Airport is an easy one hour motorway drive to the east.
Attractions beyond the resort include the pine forested Troodos mountains and the beautiful Akamas Peninsula, with its expanse of untamed parkland and secluded beaches. While the popular tourist destinations of Pissouri, Paphos, Limassol, Polis, Coral Bay and Peyia are all within easy driving distance of Aphrodite Hills, and make for a marvellous day out.
If you would rather savour the rich history of the Island then ancient Greek artefacts & ruins can be found throughout the entire Paphos area.
For the children there are 3 separate waterparks - one on the outskirts of Paphos & 2 near Limassol.
In addition, Aphrodite Hills has created a new beach club for resort guests. The Beach Club is located a short drive from the resort and a complimentary shuttle will be available to transfer guests in both directions at frequent intervals. The sandy, children-friendly beach offers luxury bar and restaurant facilities.
