|Further details indoors|
Newly and quality furnished, we have attempted to provide a home from home, which it is for us. The main bedroom is furnished with solid oak bed, side tables with lights and a dressing table with large mirror. The en suite has a bath with shower. The second bedroom has white twin beds and a side table, this en suite has a shower unit. There is plenty of hanging and shelf space in the fitted cupboard units. Please note that the lounge suite consists of modern units which may be placed together to form a large bed of sorts, although it is not primarily designed for this purpose. So, we say that, ideally the property will suit 4 adults with the possibility of an extra bed (or even 2) in the lounge, if required.
Guests should please bring their own beach towels for use around the pool.
A cot can be made available if required.
|Further details outdoors|
The property is low walled and gated, so that toddlers should not be able to wander outside on their own. The patio area is under a shaded pergola with table and chairs, with additional space next to it leading to steps down to the private pool area, with terrace and sun-loungers. The sun rises opposite the pool and travels over the property later in the day, so that late afternoon will find the pool in sometimes welcome shade. Dedicated sun worshippers, however, are still able to soak up the rays at the top of the steps next to the patio area overlooking the pool. Please note that since the photos were taken there is now a small development of 7 luxury villas on the opposite side of the ravine, but far enough away not to intrude.
Here's a great service we came across recently. Families will know that they probably won't get any luggage allowance on flights for their babies or infants. But we all know how much you need to pack for them! - Check out this website :

About this location
The Paphos District
Cyprus boasts an average of 340 days of sunshine per year! We are located in the southern, Greek part of the island, while the Northern part is the Turkish area. (The boundary stretches from around Famagusta, through Nicosia to just north of Polis.)
The charming western town of Paphos focuses around a pretty harbour, with picturesque open air tavernas and fish restaurants lining a quayside of bright fishing boats and pleasure craft. The food is generally superb and very reasonably priced when compared to UK. There are plent of historical sights to visit here, most notably the 'Tombs of the Kings' and the mosaics on display in the ruins next to the harbour.
A little further afield lies Kourion, with more mosaics, remains of Roman public baths, hellenistic houses, basilica and amphitheatre overlooking a wonderful coastal landscape. The journey here takes you past a beautiful coastline towards Limassol. There is also an impressive Castle built at the time of the crusades.
Paphos is entwined with Greek mythology and the legendary birth of Aphrodite on its shores, which brought fame and worshippers to follow the cult of the goddess. Landmarks associated with Aphrodite are the chunky, rugged rocks of her beautiful birth shore known as the Aphrodite Rock or 'Petra tou Romiou', the evocative sanctuary of Aphrodite at Kouklia village, one time a shrine and scene of pagan festivals for thousands, the Baths of Aphrodite at Polis, supposed source of fertility and the Fountain of Love, or 'Fontana Amarosa', a few kilometres further into the Akamos Peninsular.
Peyia (Pegeia) is a charming and quiet village perched upon the hillslope overlooking Coral Bay, only about 7 kilometres west of Paphos. You will find tavernas, local shops, banks, baker, fishmonger and butcher and restaurants here plus a lovely church and village square and gardens. The narrow streets are filled with old and interesting stone houses and colourful gardens.
We are within 20 to 45 mins drive of 4 spectacular golf courses, so do bring your clubs! There is the fantastic and top quality Aphrodite Hills club, or Minthis Hills (also in the hills above Paphos with some spectacular views) or Secret Valley, which lies a little further along the coast past Paphos. The new Faldo designed course just outside Paphos is one of the best. The military have their own course in Happy Valley a bit further on.
There is plenty to do in Coral Bay itself, including nightlife and restaurants plus it's famous blue flag beach with tavernas, showers and watersports available, and free parking!
Further along the coast westwards is Agios Georgios, a lovely secluded beach and harbour, while just past this lies the Akamos Peninsular, a wild area of natural beauty that is well worth a visit and ideal for walking.
Here you will find Turtle beach, home to hundreds of loggerhead turtles that return each year to lay and hatch their eggs, with a lovely rural taverna overlooking the scene and ideal for a lunch. Much further past this point you will need a 4 wheel drive vehicle to explore the terrain by the dirt tracks available.

"Not particulaly relaxing"
It is a perfectly nice villa, although with it being so hot in August shame the downstairs aircon was not working. However the reason it was not so relaxing was the very noisy building site opposite t… More
Aircon unit has been checked and no faults found, although guests should note that it will not be effective when windows are open at same time or when it is run at the very minimum temperature on a really hot day as the temperature difference is too great... The building works consisting of of 8 luxury villas (on the other side of the ravine) were unfortunate and have been noisy but are happily due completion before end of 2013 and are then far enough away not to intrude, allowing peaceful relaxation once more. We are yet to see if the goats return....

"A truly relaxing holiday with all of the home comforts and excellent weather"
We had a great time and found the Villa to be ideally placed for getting around. We took our daughter with us who enjoyed the privacy the villa gave her and the wonderful sun trap that the pool provi… More
Very glad you enjoyed it. I will do my very best to fit you in next October but please let me know the dates as soon as you know them, as it is normally quite popular then because, as you found out, the climate is still mostly sunny but not extreme heat.

"Perfect for a relaxing week or two in the sun!"
We spent 9 nights at the villa and it was perfect for what we wanted - a relaxing & peaceful stay with the ability to go out if we wanted to. It's a short walk into Peyia village or slightly long… More
So glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for the review.

"Very very nice villa some difficulties with the location not in the owners control."
Great villa, clean ,comfortable and well equipped. Sadly some of the surrounding villa's not as well looked after or finished.
We only found two good paces to eat with in walking distance of the Villa. Coral Bay very close if you want to use a taxi to return at night after dark we didn't want to walk due to lack of pavements & street lights.
Great place to relax a TV would have been a nice addition in consideration of how quiet the Village is. We were pleased to have a car and would recommend all guests also consider having a car.
Glad you enjoyed it! TV is not a requirement for most of our guests as it is the peace and quiet they are seeking. Also, it would involve a large and unsightly satellite dish unless only local programmes (in greek)are used- this would then need to be reflected in the price.

"Relax Relax Relax!!!"
We have just returned from a very relaxing week in Riverside Villa. The villa was modern, very well equiped and presented immaculately. Although set in a quiet cul de sac the village was a very short walk away from supermarket, bakery, bank and numerous tavernas etc. The weather was fantastic and the pool well used. An excellent holiday for families and couples alike.The owner Malcolm was very pleasant and helpful when we booked our stay. We will book again without hesitation.
Thats very nice of you, thanks for the review and I am so glad you all enjoyed the stay. I will look forward to your return.

"A Relaxing and Peacful holiday"
My husband and I stayed at the villa for 2 weeks. The villa is set in a quiet area, decorated to a good standard and well maintained. It is in ideal location for either a touring or relaxing holiday. There is a number of good bars and resturant in nearbye Coral Bay and Peyia if you prefer to eat out, which my husband and i did most evenings. The small pool is ideal way to cool down in the hot Cyprus sun. We had a lovely time doing our own thing at our pace I would definatly book this Villa again.
I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you again in future.
