Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 7
One could write a flowery description with lots of deceptive words but having searched the internet for Holiday Villas myself I know potential guests just want to get to the point.
You will not be disappointed by Cyprus, and Pissouri has a reputation as being the best in Cyprus so you're in the right place if you want an enjoyable break. The Villa is a home from home, it is spacious, has everything you'll need to enable you to enjoy a well earned break from the run of the mill; you'll feel at home the day you arrive.
You will want to explore the Villa from the moment you arrive so let me take you through what you will find.
You enter through the well kept mature garden in through the front door to the fully air conditioned, open plan living area. The kitchen area has everything you would expect and more. Modern appliances, oven, hob, fridge-freezer, dishwasher, washing machine along with ample workspace, utensils and crockery to enable the most capable chef to create delightful dishes.
Your eyes will be drawn to the living area, the large dining table and comfy sofas, complimented by the modern decor, occasional tables, satellite TV and Blu-Ray player, selection of DVDs and Ipod Dock. The Living area gives direct access to a toilet and the first of the three En-suite bedrooms.
Before going too far into the Villa you will want to explore the outside facilities and where better to start than with the large pool with roman steps that enable the least confident swimmer to have somewhere to splash around. The Pool is accessible either through the inner stairs off the living area or via the stairs to the side of the Villa. The water sparkles where it is so clean, the six full size loungers, large (3M) parasols and selection of floats and pool toys provide for all whether you wish to soak up the sun, chill in the shade with a book or be a little more energetic in the pool. You will notice the alfresco dining area with modern Gas BBQ. This area is well lit to enable you to enjoy a relaxing evening in the garden when the sun has gone down but you don't want the day to end; you are welcome to cut a fresh lemon from the lemon tree or compliment your meal with some fresh olives from the olive tree.
At some point you will have to retire to Bed so let us go back into the Villa and explore the bedroom arrangements. As mentioned above all three bedrooms are en-suite, all are fully air-conditioned and have ceiling fans to help circulate the cool air along with mood setting bed side lamps to help you relax you into peaceful sleep. All bedrooms have built in wardrobes providing ample storage space along full length mirrors.
The first bedroom is accessible from the living area and has a king size bed. The en-suite consists of shower, basin and toilet.
Moving up stairs you will discover two further bedrooms. The first is a twin and with en-suite shower, basin and toilet. You will then move to the master bedroom which will impress. It is spacious enough on it's own but the private terrace opens out through the large patio window to give an area where time can stand still. By day it is a sun trap that will allow you to relax in total isolation from the world outside, by night it turns into a planetarium where the night sky will amaze as the stars and occasional comet come into view; this really is a sight to see.
So is that it, well no, there is more: From the living area you will gain access to the basement area where, along with access to the pool, you will find a full size pool table with both adult and child size cues, a further television with PlayStation 3 and a selection of games along with another toilet and shower which serves the pool and acts as an en-suite should the Sofa bed be required.
Hand, bath and swimming/beach towels are provided for all along with quilts and bedspreads, you are welcome to request other items if required to ensure your holiday starts the second you arrive.
A Cot with bedding and High Chair are available on request.
The Pool is cleaned twice a week, the Villa will be presented in pristine condition; I have been to Villas where the first day is spent cleaning them to my standard, you can be assured you won't need to clean this Villa on arrival.
WiFi is available on the Pine Bay network and is very good value, €15 for 14 days access.
Well, you now know about the Villa, you will be wondering what else there is to do in and around Pissouri. There are many attractions from Historical sites and monuments to wild water parks and water activities so let me give you an overview of some of the hi-lights.
First I will start with places to eat.
Pissouri village has a fair number of restaurants all within reasonable walking distance. There are numerous traditional offerings from the local tavernas along with the more cosmopolitan that one comes to expect.
Slightly further afield Pissouri Bay has it's own choices, more traditional with sea front fish restaurants, Cyprus cuisine and, should you wish, the 5 star hotel. Full details of local restaurants will be provide to ensure you have the opportunity to explore from an informed position.
Moving on to entertainment. The options are neverending. Cyprus has many historical monuments, many of which you will know from Greek mythology; Aphrodite features with her birth place less than ten minutes from the Villa. Then there is the ancient Amphitheatre which is a must if only to witness the amazing mosaic skills of the ancient Greeks. A trip in to Paphos and a visit to the Fort or an excursion in a Glass bottom Boat where you really can see the wonderful Sea Life in the clear warm sea below.
A guide is provided in the Villa giving lots of ideas of places to eat and visit during your stay, an electronic copy can be provided before you travel if required.

The Limassol region
The historical offerings are amazing with preserved ruins from over three thousand years ago with new finds being unearthed to this day. Take the costal road to Pahpos or Limosol and you are sure to be in awe of the outstanding natural beauty of the area. From sea views to wonder views across the island, on a clear day you can see the top of Mount Trodoos, something that itself is well worth a visit and prepare for the day as you will find an active Monastry that you will not be able to resist visiting, it is a truly magnificent expereince.
The area offers everything from a relaxing peaceful break by the pool to a full on Water Sports themed holiday. With the Mediterranean weather and beautiful clear sea you can't go wrong. The Villa is located in an area that has local facilites that include a Tennis Court (Rackets are provided at the Villa) and Large Swimiing Pool as well as the Villa's private Swimming Pool, a snack bar and fun evening activities including quizes and themed nights. The Village offers numerous options for eating from 5 star dining to more traditional Cypriot offerings including Mezes and other local dishes. You could eat out every night and never have to visit the same resturant twice, although the quality of the food at the local resturants will make it difficult to resist revisiting to sample other delightful dishes.

This was our second visit at Villa Petra and we enjoyed staying here as much as the first time we visited in August 2013. The villa and pool were spotless again thanks to Mal and her husband (sorry, can never remember his name!) who manage the Villa for Ken. The welcome pack was much appreciated and saved having to dash to the supermarket as soon as we arrived. The villa is equipped with everything you need to make your holiday stress free - washing machine, dishwasher etc, there is even a cool box to use on days out.
A car is recommended as the villa isn't in walking distance of the shops or beach, but to appreciate the many sights that Cyprus has to offer hiring a car is an advantage. We collect and return our hire car from the airport as the Cypriots drive on left same as in England and the roads are very quiet and easy to drive on.
Thank you again Ken for a wonderful relaxing holiday.

"Well appointed comfortable villa, suitable for 6 easily"
The villa was a bit further from the village than we thought and after playing golf during the day in the hot sun, it really felt like a long walk, so we ended up using the car all the time. However, the villa was clean and comfortable. The basic provisions were available on arrival, which was a blessing as we arrived quite late and make sure you have a torch so you can use the key code!!

We had 2 wonderful weeks at Villa Petra. Contact with Ken over the booking was very efficient and he even rewrote the directions to take into account we were coming from another part of the island, not from the airport. Everything was clean and well maintained. The pool is great and was the perfect temperature. A real treat after a hot day of sight seeing. The villa is very spacious, spread over 3 floors.
The location is excellent, being just off the motorway serving the south coast, so its easy to get to Paphos, Limassol, Larnica and Nicossia, or up into the Troodos Mountains. The villa is on the Pine Hills development, which has a combination of residential and rental properties. There is also a clubhouse with communal pool and bar, particularly good if you have children who'd like to make some holiday friends. The area is really quiet, perfect for a restful break but would disappoint if you are after nightlife. The village of Pissouri has several excellent tavernas and Pissouri Bay is only a short drive away, and is also well supplied with some shops and restaurants. You definitely need a car for this property.
If you are after a quiet, restful holiday in a well equipped , modern villa, then Villa Petra is perfect. We won't hesitate to book again, next time we head to Cyprus.

"perfect villa and perfect location"
we have visited pissouri many times and this villa is the best we have stayed in. pine bay and the location of this villa is perfect, overlooking the top of the forest and sea in the distance. I particularly liked the space in the property especially the top floor sun terrace which is a great sun trap! it was like home from home with all " mod cons". ceiling fans aswell as air conditioning was great.I have two teenage daughters and as you can imagine needed plenty of wardrobe space which this villa has plenty of! How lovely having a welcome pack which we were greatful of as we arrived very late evening. we would definitely stay again and found the whole booking experience and information excellent.
thanks for a great holiday!
