Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 10
“What a find!! We've thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Excellent location, fully serviced villa – a real home from home. Normally there's a list of things missing that would have made the holiday better, but not on this occasion. We're already looking forward to returning next year!!” The Barrys, Bushells and Kings
Enjoy the quiet comforts of a deluxe, secluded 4 bedroom private villa with unobstructed sea views over the glorious Pissouri Bay from every room, with colourful Mediterranean gardens set in a small seaside village amongst rolling hillsides, lush vineyards and beach atmosphere, within walking distance of 14 restaurants and a wide range of other holiday and sporting amenities.
See http://bit.ly/neptunesretreat to take a video tour of the villa and get a feel for the wonderful views and designer furniture and fittings for you to enjoy on your next holiday!
And if you are around between June and September, you may be lucky enough to watch loggerhead turtles make nests and lay their eggs on our local beach, and then see the turtle hatchlings emerge about 7 weeks later - amazing experience! Have a look at the pictures to see the latest seasonal turtle activities.
Our family fell in love with Pissouri Bay when we came across it during an exploratory visit to Cyprus, and we were lucky enough to build a glorious 4 bedroom private villa to our own specifications, which allowed us to ensure every room in the villa overlooks the sea, while also having the longest private pool in the bay (13 x 4m) set in an extensive paved patio and garden. We spent many months carefully selecting all the fittings and furniture, in order to make our wonderful villa truly a "home from home".
And as we live permanently outside Cyprus, we want to give other families and groups like you the opportunity to experience the joy of our treasured holiday home for yourselves. So after browsing this site and reading our guest reviews, we hope you will reserve your holiday and enjoy Neptune's Retreat as much as we and our previous guests have done.
Neptune's Retreat is a privately owned, spacious 4 bedroom villa with large open plan lounge/dining area opening onto fabulous private paved terrace and garden with 13x4 metre pool, situated on the south-west coast of Cyprus, in the rural seaside village of Pissouri Bay, midway between Paphos and Limassol. Set at the southern end of a small valley filled with vineyards, the villa has spectacular sea views from the living areas and also from every bedroom, (so you will wake up to the sound of the sea and relax in bed, savouring the views in luxury). The master bedroom has a private terrace with fantastic views over the bay and sea, with mature gardens providing privacy around the beautiful pool.
Fitted with all the mod cons, including air conditioning, broadband internet connection and stylish furnishings, this non-smoking villa makes the most of the superb landscaping, with outdoor living in beautiful managed gardens a particular feature. Neptune's Retreat is ideal both for lazing around and enjoying that book you have been meaning to read for months, or for more active passions such as golf (with 2 championship courses a mere 10 minute scenic drive away), water sports at the nearby Blue Flag beach, or exploring the many beauties of this wonderful island and indulging in culinary delights at the many local tavernas and restaurants.

Past guest comments:
“The Villa is lovely. The views, especially from the bedrooms, is beautiful – I loved waking up in the morning and lying in bed, seeing and hearing the sea. I would love to come back.”
Rhoann Joffe, London
“Spot on, super, spiffing, top notch, ab fab, marvellous, wonderful, great fandabiosi, smashing, nice and any other superlatives from the Imm, Longs and Thompsons. We'd love to come back again.”

“We had a lovely time. The villa was wonderful and the pool a real hit with the boys and granddads. They spent most of the days submerged. The weather got really hot during the middle of our stay but we had the lovely Pissouri breeze. We enjoyed Captains Bay and Mum and I went to the Serenity Spa for a lovely massage – the girls were great. Thanks for everything. Best wishes.”
McNallys and cousins
“Fantastic villa, lovely pool enjoyed by everyone. People very friendly and Chris the taxi man a real star. We tried all the restaurants recommended and all were very good. Captains Bay great for long lunches. Indian food was excellent, best tasted. Cyprus Night in the village was the best night, watermania most fun.”
“Wonderful villa for a family celebration (Ruby wedding anniversary). Good for young children (6 months and 18 months). FANTASTIC long pool! We have all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Would recommend Columbia Hotel and Hillview Restaurant for a special occasion (worth paying the extra money). Would definitely visit this villa again. Thank you.”
Wheatstone family (UK and New York)
“Lovely villa, superb location. We could find no fault whatsoever. My 3 year old daughter loved the pool and she can practically swim now. All the rooms and the outside area are excellent. My only complaint is why didn't we book a second week - one week is not enough! Weather has been hot every day. Thank you for a very enjoyable week.”

The Limassol region
Cyprus is one of Europe's favourite holiday destinations. With friendly, English-speaking locals, excellent food, wine and over 5,000 years of history it's hardly surprising! Add to that the near-zero crime rate, drive on the left, drink most tap-water and plug in your UK electrical appliances with no adaptors, you'll understand why Cyprus promises to give you one of the most trouble-free, friendly, enjoyable and memorable holidays you will ever have! Explore Aphrodite's Rock, the Tomb of the Kings, beaches, water-sports, water-parks and enjoy the lively atmosphere of Paphos, 20 minutes drive away, with its old harbour, restaurants, bars and nightclubs. Alternatively, savour the excellent food and wines in the quieter taverns in the villages of nearby Pissouri and Kouklia with their gentle and friendly character. The villa is 10 minutes drive from Secret Valley Golf club Aphrodite Hills Golf, Hotel Leisure complex, 20 minutes to the new Elea club near Paphos and 30 minutes from Tsada Golf.
Go hiking or biking (or try some ski-ing in winter) or relax in one of the many interesting tavernas in the glorious Troodos mountains - which is a mere 30 minute drive north from the villa through tiny winding roads. Visit Cyprus's Mount Olympus which peaks at nearly 2,000m and drink in the clear air and gorgeous mountain scenery. Then decend through Platres, stop to take in a meze and some ouzo or explore a few of the many lavishly frescoed Byzantine churches that dot the area. If you are fit and adventurous, visit the Caledonia Falls at the end of the Caledonia Trail.
Back at the coast, take a trip to the ruins of ancient Curium (or Kourion), with its impressive cliff-top theatre where you may be lucky enough to attend a play or concert in the summer season. Visit the Crusader castle at Kolossi, and take in the spectacular sunsets at the Petra tou Romiou (the legendary birthplace of Greek Goddess Aphrodite). If you visiting in spring/summer and are really lucky, you may see loggerhead turtles haul themselves onto the beach to lay their eggs, or even better in July/August, see the hatchlings fight their way back from their nests into the sea. In the past two years, there have been an average of 8-10 active nests on Pissouri beach, with over 600 hatchlings successfully making their way into the sea.
Local leisure facilities:
Blue flag beach
Scuba (diving school in the village)
Turtle watching and hatchlings returning to the sea - in spring/summer
Tennis (at local hotel)
Snow ski-ing in winter (30 minutes drive)
In addition to the wonderful 2km long Blue Flag beach in Pissouri Bay itself, which never gets busy like the other beaches in Paphos and Limassol, there is a wonderful, almost deserted beach in the next bay, Avdimou, which is reached through an extensive nature reserve area filled with local wildlife and flora. Pissouri Village, with its quaint streets, lively restaurants and superb amphitheatre, is a 5 minute drive up the mountain-side, where you can savour the fabulous views over the countryside to Limassol or the Troodos Mountains.
In summer, there are regular Cypriot nights at several tavernas in both Pissouri Bay and Pissouri Village, while the nearby amphitheatre at Kourion regularly has events. Limassol and Paphos are each less than 30 minutes drive away, with their vast array of activities, including water parks, historic old towns and harbours, and long promenades along the sea front. The Limassol Sculpture Park is of particular interest and should not be missed - it is best enjoyed by taking a walk after a leisurely meal at one of the many seafront restaurants in the area.

Fabulous villa in a great location just above Pissouri Bay. It was really easy to get down to the pretty beach area and also up to Pissouri Village. The owner couldn't have been more helpful and … More

"There are some misleading information on the house"
1. The house is 10 minutes by car from the beach or 20 walking, not 300m as stated. Great photoshoped photographs as house is far from the closer beach.2. The water pump, it continued to make nois… More
Dear Julia and Carlo
I am sorry that you had some problems at the villa, but I want to confirm that we made every effort to respond as quickly as possible as soon as you raised the issues with me. To respond to your specific points:
1. I am not sure what route you took to the beach - I have been driving from the villa to the beach for the past 7 years and it has never taken me longer than 3 minutes to drive there, so I don't know how you could take 10 minutes to do that journey - that is normally how long it takes to walk at a slow pace with my young son as well as my elderly mother-in-law. I have had many guests staying at the villa and not a single one has ever complained about the distance from the house to the beach - in fact most of them love the fact that it is such an easy walk to and from the beach. I also reject your assertion that the photos on the site have been photoshopped - they are genuine pictures taken by me with an ordinary camera.
2. There was a problem with the water pump which we had attended to early the following morning after you raised the problem on your first evening. I was assured by my plumber and my manager that the problem was fixed at that point. I visited the villa the week after you left and particularly checked out the pump noise and for 4 nights in a row I did not hear a single sound from the pump that would in any way have disturbed my sleep. I can only say that you must have hyper-sensitive hearing, as I couldn't hear any noise and neither of the two parties who have stayed at the villa since you left have complained about any noise at all.
3. The swimming pool was cleaned twice a week during your stay, not once as you indicate. The pool cleaner has confirmed that he used normal chemicals and that the pool was perfectly clean and safe, given that it is an outdoor pool in a dusty Mediterranean environment. Again the guests who have followed you have not complained in any way about the state of the pool. In fact, both parties have emailed me to state how wonderful the pool is and that it is a great feature of the villa. As a result of your complaint, I have asked the pool cleaner to ensure that the water level is kept topped up and that is what is now happening.
4. The outside shower has been tidied up and the rubbish removed.
5. I checked all the doors myself during my visit and couldn't find any squeaks, but oiled all the hinges to make sure and there are no squeaks any more.

Thanks very much for your positive review and we were delighted that you enjoyed your holiday. Since your visit, we have had some maintenance done on the pool to ensure it is in tiptop condition. It is now sparkling so hopefully you will have a chance to enjoy it again on your next visit.
