Set in the heart of the village our villa provides total privacy whilst being just a short stroll from the restaurants, coffee shops, cafes and bars of Peyia. Architect designed to gain maximum benefit from amazing views of the coastline, it has enormous shady balconies with large french windows leading out from every room catching the cooling summer breezes blowing up from the Mediterranean. Just step out of any room to enjoy over 300 days of sunshine in every year.
Our guests comment on the masses of living space for unwinding and relaxing. There is a large dining room , plus a separate equally large living room with soft modern furnishings, UK TV, DVD player, CD player, wifi, broadband, CDs, DVDs, books, games, etc.. A separate master suite comprises a 20ft bedroom, study/dressing room and a large en-suite bathroom. Each of the other bedrooms also has its own bathroom and the layout of the villa, with separate sleeping areas, makes it absolutely ideal for two, or even three, couples to share. Each balcony is fully equipped with its own furniture - dining tables and chairs, easy chairs, coffee tables - everything you will need for alfresco living.
Downstairs balconies give direct access into the garden, which is normally a riot of colour, has mature trees with cool shady areas beneath for that long afternoon siesta in a hammock strung from the branches of a pecan nut tree. There is a full depth, good sized pool, which is bathed in sunshine from dawn 'til dusk. The whole is surrounded by walls, mature fruit trees, honeysuckle, bougainvillea and pomegranate hedges, giving almost total privacy in all directions.
Villa Iptamena has been our home for a number of years. It is therefore a welcoming place with a homely atmosphere that comes with just about every 'extra' imaginable.

|Further details outdoors|

<> There are loungers and sun beds by the pool for the seriously idle.
<> The pool has just been fully refurbished. Catching so much sun, it is usable for much of the year. Our pool man says its the warmest pool he cleans. There is under water disco lighting and the garden can also be floodlit - for those midnight swims!

Villa Iptamena is set in the heart of the most popular village in the Paphos region, renowned for its stunning location, the warmth and friendliness of its people and the traditional way of life still pursued by some of the villagers. Three minutes walk from the village square (250 meters) you will enjoy the pleasures of village life in the coffee shops, tavernas and restaurants, as well as all the modern conveniences offered by the village store, bank, butcher, baker and more.
<> Your immediate neighbours will be mainly Cypriots. Nearly all speak good English and they will be happy to offer advice and suggestions to help you get the best from your holiday.
<> Whilst you are in residence you will be looked after by our local representatives, an English couple living nearby.
In the last 10 years the Paphos area has become the most popular in Cyprus for family holidays. It offers the best scenery, some of the best beaches, good international communications, and above all, the longest and most reliable warm climate in the whole Mediterranean. Paphos itself has all the facities that the holiday maker might require: good hotels, shops, night life, antiquities, restaurants, clubs, bars, water park and more.
Peyia offers a quieter, more traditional Cypriot way of life with some of its people still following the old customs, ways of dress and means of employment. Yet, as UK's current favourite destination for villa holidays in Cyprus, it has all the activities and facilities to make a memorable holiday.
In addition to swimming, water sports, sailing, sub-aqua diving, riding, tennis, bowls, go-karting all within the immediate area (5 miles) Peyia is on the doorstep of the Akamas National Park, Cyprus' largest wildlife nature reserve (75 sq miles), which is waiting to be explored , either by car or by Landrover safari. Day sea cruises to the remoter inlets and beaches can also be arranged.
And for those who are interested in some night life, as well as the village restaurants and tavernas, Coral Bay is only 2 miles distant with its top class hotels, restaurants catering for all tastes and prices, shops, bars and clubs.
