Villa Poinciana is now the most reviewed villa in Western Cyprus on trip advisor. Consistently over the last 5 years we have provided hundreds of guests from all over the world with a wonderful villa at reasonable prices that have made their vacation a memorable one.

The villa enjoys wonderful views of the sea and mountains in a quiet location yet close to many activities in Latchi such as water sports, cycling, hiking and fishing. The villa is well arranged, offering spacious modern accommodation, bedroom balconies and fully furnished with a modern, exquisite style. You will find a tempting 10m x 5m PRIVATE HEATED swimming pool surrounded in the garden, parasols and sun beds. During the cooler Winter months the villa has proper underfloor heating avaliable for use provided free of charge (Dec-Mid March). Managed by local agents who go to great lengths to ensure all guests are looked after, as is confirmed by all the trip advisor reviews, the highest of any similar sized villa in the Polis area.

The beach is just a 3 minute walk away and the picturesque fishing harbour of Latchi with its famous restaurants a 5 - 7 min walk (depending on how fast a walker you are). At night you can sit and relax in one of the local beach bars, enjoy the music, and even take a midnight swim and return to the bar ! Charming Polis is a 5 min drive with its wide range of taverns and restaurants, many situated around the paved town square. And of course the legendary Baths of Aphrodite are only 4.0 km away.

The villa has privacy, its own private heated swimming pool and garden area, magnificent mountain and sea views and is absolutely perfect for a quiet and relaxing holiday. Take a look at some of the pictures here to get an example of what I mean. Situated just outside Latchi village near the isolated, rugged and scenic Akamas Peninsula, a visit to the legendary Baths of Aphrodite is a must as is boat journey up the Akamas peninsula to stop in many of the coves such as the blue lagoon to swim or snorkel. Ramblers will love the many walks available in the area as the hills and valley are completely unspoiled and simply pristine. This area of Cyprus is not suitable for those who are seeking a wild night life but perfect for a quiet, relaxing holiday. However for the younger generation visiting there are a few good nightclubs in the Latchi/Polis area and bustling Paphos is but a 35min drive away.

About this location

The Paphos District

The climate in the Paphos region is for long dry hot Summers where temperatures can reach up to 40c with 13.0 hours of sunshine and temperatures falling nicely down in the evening to lows of 22c-24c. The Winter months of Dec, Jan and Feb bring rain but temperatures still remain about 16-20C with an average of 5.0 hours on sunshine and sometimes with colder, fresher nights.

Whatever you desire, activity, tranquillity, good food, fine wine, golf, spas, walking and nature, the upper class Paphos region offers it all. The charming west coast town of Paphos focusses around an attractive little harbour whose picturesque open air fish restaurants line a quayside of fishing boats and laid back life. The historical and magical area of Latchi/Polis is unmissable to anyone looking for sun, sea and serenity.

For keen walkers and cyclists, the very nearby Akamas National Park offers a paradise of endless walks and cycle ways, 4*4 driving, wild animals and birds, fauna, fantastic sea views and secluded coves for snorkelling and swimming. Akamas is included in the official UNESCO world's heritage list of cultural and natural treasures. Please note cycles, mopeds and cars can all be hired locally in Latchi. A visit to the Troodos mountains and some of the famous monasteries is a must where you can view all of the West side of Cyprus.

For golfers, there are three quality , panoramic , courses within an hour’s drive, all open to visitors, namely the Aphrodite Hills, Secret Valley and Tsada Golf Clubs.


Close by are the baths of Aphrodite with an exhilarating view over the bay. According to legends the baths are where Aphrodite took her beauty baths in a pool of a natural grotto shaded by a fig tree.My villa is situated about 3km out of the Akamas national park, the Akamas peninsula is an area of outstanding natural beauty. Sandy bays, deep gorges with varied landscapes.

Watersports and diving can be done in this area with 2 Padi diving schools located in Latchi and Paphos.

Jeef safari tours are incredibly popular within the Akamas peninsula.

With wine tasting and mounting biking there is sure to be something for everyone.

"Wonderful Christmas"

One of the nicest places we ever stayed, so tranquil and peaceful. The villa was well equipped, had lots of room and was furnished to a high standard. What we all enjoyed was comfortable beds, which i… More

Thankyou very much Anna for a great review and were glad you enjoyed the villa. Villas in Cyprus are not insulated so we invested in Underfloor heating, a far cleaner and more environmentally friendly way of heating the villa. We may look at cavity wall insulation in the future but the underfloor heating still seems to do the job well between Dec to Feb when needed.

Hope we can welcome you all back one day where you can notice the ongoing improvements we make to the villa.

Happy New Year

"Absolutely Fantastic"

Villa Ponciana surpassed all our expectations. If you have ever had any worries about booking a villa you have not seen (except from a few photos on the internet) then rest assured you will be nothing less than thrilled with the whole booking process and accommodation provided here. The owner is thorough and meticulous to detail with ensuring you have everything you need before your holiday; from an initial phone call to a personalised welcome pack. He also has an extremely helpful and knowledgable property manager to assist you during your holiday, if required. The villa is light, modern, clean and extremely well equipped. The pool is large (and heated if required) and surrounded by sun beds and pool lights and a delightful well kept garden brimming with flowers and colour. There are beautiful sea views from the upstairs balconies. There is a gorgeous terrace raised up above the pool for a delicious Cyprus breakfast - our preferred option was Greek yogurt, honey and pomegranates, which are plentiful in the hedgerows in October. The beach and nearest taverna are a 5 minute stroll away and the harbour with its many restaurants and tavernas is 10 mins away (at 5 year old pace). The villa is extremely peaceful at the end of a quiet road with fields all around, which were occasionally filled with the exotic sound of goat's bells as the goats came out to graze. We did not ever see any neighbours on the other side so did not ever have to worry about how much noise our chidren were making splashing around and enjoying the pool. With a car there is so much to see within easy reach- Latchi watersports is 10 mins in the car with pedallos, banana boat, and waterskiing. If you travel 25 mins east along the coast you reach beautiful Pomos with another lovely harbour and excellent snorkelling which our children loved. There are water slide parks galore in Paphos (35 mins drive) which are very exciting for young children. We had an amazing holiday at Villa Poinciana and would definitely return.

Thankyou Claire for such a great review. We always strive to make the booking process as honest and as efficient as possible. We have made many improvments as a basis of this years guests remarks and they are now all in place for next year.

We hope to welcome you back in the future

"Fantastic Villa Excellent Location"

Dismiss any doubts you may have about dealing direct with an owner. Michael's friendly and professional approach is second to none. The Villa itself is fabulous in every way, equipped to a very high standard, fantastic location with stunning views, the garden, pool and outside area the perfect place to "chill". Locally the attention to detail is superbly managed by Mark. Overall the entire experience from first contact to handing back the keys at the end of a fantastic holiday was a 10/10.

Thankyou Melanie and Martyn. glad you had a really good stay. We strive for perfection, always something we can do better.

We hope to welcome you back at some point in the future

Thanks Tim and Claire for such a great review. I'm here this week. We have just put in internet TV-400 channels, just a one of the few improvements we are doing ahead of next year.

Once again I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you both again soon.

Thankyou very much for a great review Blake. I hope your family had a great Summer. We are extending the fence between the neighbours for greater privacy ( i know the hibiscus both sides nearly did that) but aso and more importantly we are replacing the pool liner for a fresher more modern one.

Thanks again and hope to welocme you back one day

"Villa Poinciana will exceed your expectations"

From the point of booking it was clear that the owner dealt with our enquiry and booking with exacting detail. The information before departure was greatly appreciated and we had confidence in our dealings at all times.

When we reached the Villa, our expectations were exceeded, the quality of furnishings and attention to detail made us feel that we had made the right choice.

The villa is very spacious and is perfectly situated, easy access to the beach and harbour in a matter of minutes. You will never get bored with the 180 degree views for the balconies.

The owners agents, Mark and Ada were just as attentive and nothing was too much trouble, from advice on local attractions and restaurants to dealing with minor matters such as pool and villa cleaning.

We would have no hesitation is recommending a holiday here and would return again.

Thank you Michael, Mark and Ada.

Thankyou Richard and family for a great review. Its always brightens up my day when a guest has not only enjoyed their stay but thoroughly enjoyed their stay.

Fro potential guests reading this, please note that not all happy holiday makers give me trip advisor reviews. I believe with this one that this makes it the 2nd highest reviewed home in Cyprus.

Much appreciated and hopefully we can welcome you back soon

"Great Relaxing Villa"

We are settling back into our routine after our wonderful stay at Villa Poinciana. We could not fault the villa which more than met our expectations, a quick walk to the marina and beach. Michael was excellent in his responses and always very helpful as was his agent Mark who bent over backwards to help. We really do hope to return sometime again soon

Thanks Nigel. Glad you had a great time.Michael
