The villa is set in a private closed off road away from the hustle & bustle of the tourist areas so there will be no noise intrusions.

The Paphos District
Paphos is the birthplace of Aphrodite the 'Goddess' of Love and Beauty. 80% of the population of Paphos is English! The rest being Greek Cypriots & other cultures. Driving is on the left like it is in the U.K. with the road signs marked in both English and Greek. Nearly all the locals speak English so the town is really 'home to home' for the typical Brit with the added advantage of having year round sunshine! Average temperature in the summer is typically 30 degrees but it is not uncommon for the temperature to reach even 50 degrees! Average winter temp in say Dec is typically 10-15 degrees centigrade. The town has a rich Greek cultural heritage and is not too big like Nicosia (the capital) or Larnaca & Limassol. This is probably why people over the age of 30 prefer Paphos to the other cities/towns in Cyprus. getting around is very easy with good signage and lots of things to do like visiting Aphrodite rock / Bay, the golden sandy beaches of Coral Bay, the pine forrest of the Troodos & snow covered mountain of Mount Olympus where the drive to the top is breathtaking. For golf lovers there is the Secret Valley where there is the Jack Nicholas Championship Golf Course. In the summer there is scuba diving and a large Water Park. The town centre has many brand named shops and restaurants such as Pizza Hut, KFC, macdonalds, chinese and Indian restaurants. The Harbour front has cruise liners & yachts moored from the gulf states and there is a Roman Ruin housing the Mosiacs from the Greek Mytology Era. There are numerous nightclubs which stays open till 3 am in the morning. So Paphos is a town you will fall in love with easily.
The village of Peyia is approx 15 mins drive from Paphos town centre and is set in a very quiet and quaint location. Persons over the ages of 35 loves this area for good reasons - it is the ideal place to retire! Having said this though there is the short drive (5 mins) to the golden beach of Coral Bay and many people say that this is the best beach in the whole of Cyprus as the water is clear and calm - ideal for snorkelling & scuba diving so this area will appeal to all ages. Peyia village houses the town hall (municipality), a large supermarket and numerous restaurants and tavernas. There are the banks with numerous ATM's. Driving up the village leads to the mountains where one can view the whole of Cyprus - truely breathtaking!

"A tired, poorly equiiped villa, next to solar panel installation"
The owner was very quick to respond to any queries that we had prior to arriving at the villa. John the local rep was helpful, he met us in Coral Bay and took us to the villa, he assisted in getting a… More
Regarding the sunbeds/loungers I am very upset that after supplying 2 brand new sunbeds (apparently 2 or which broke) at a cost of €230 the very next day these tenants referred to them as being 'useable' inferring these were second hand! (2) I got the inventory report back from my agent who confirmed that prior to these tenants arriving at the villa that there were 14 mugs of which only 4 were slightly chipped (which none of the previous tenants complained about) and 10 glasses. How many mugs and glasses do 2 people need? (3) Similarly there were 40 towels in the villa of which 8 or 9 were also slightly stained so there was 30 new towels in the villa all of these were clean. (4) regarding the steps in the swimming pool my agent and pool maintenance person thoroughly checked the steps and did not find any of the steps jutting edges protruding into the water. The bottom step was broken but this was removed prior to these tenants moving in. However the step has been replaced. (5) The blue oval sunbed should have been removed so not quite sure why my agent did not do so but the tenants were told that the cover on temporarily. It has now been removed. (6) regarding the solar panels no other tenants complained about the noise so slightly baffled about this query. In conclusion: I am a caring landlord that cares for my tenants and just occasionally things go wrong but I try to rectify things quickly. I only own 1 villa and I feel the comments left by this particular renter is somewhat misleading especially when other renters left a 4 & 5 star reviews. Mr Basu (owner.)

Thank you for staying at villa Sofia. Our previous cleaning company which we contracted the work out to left Cyprus and returned back to the UK so I used another cleaning company and unfortunately it appeared on this occasion they did not quite clean the bathroom and the walls/ceiling of some cobwebs. So I am using another company so hopefully 3rd time lucky! I am striving for perfection so your comments have been noted and improvements already made. Finally thank you for your 4 star review and hopefully you will return again next year. Regards, Mr Basu (owner.)
