Our townhouse and it's location offers everything you could need for a much deserved relaxing break in the sun.
It has two floors; on the first floor you will find a double bedroom and en-suite bathroom with bathtub, with Patio doors leading out onto a balcony. The balcony is west facing and captures the afternoon and the last of the evening sun and is a great place to relax with a coffee and enjoy the views over the swimming pool and fields beyond, or sip a sundowner or two! You will also find a twin bedroom with an en-suite toilet/shower-room with lovely views over the hills to the he back of the house. Both bedrooms have loads of wardrobe space and have pretty dressing tables with mirrors.
On the ground floor you enter the house via a solid wood front door leading onto an open plan kitchen area with lots of cupboard space containing a wide range of kitchen appliances, including an electric hob & oven with extractor fan,fridge/freezer, washing machine, toaster, kettle, plus crockery and glassware for 6 place settings. Follow through to the large lounge/dining area which is comfortably furnished in a contemporary fashion with finishing touches in the more classic Cypriot style, and has an LCD TV and DVD player with a selection of films and music to pick from, to keep you entertained. Free WI-FI is widely available at most local bars and restaurants. With full width patio doors leading out onto the private patio/garden area, it has a really spacious and open feel and keeps pretty cool. There is also a very handy downstairs cloakroom with WC on this floor, which saves having to dash upstairs.
As with most Cypriot properties solar energy is used to provide hot water for showers etc., which is great, making full use of the natural heat harnessed from the sun. All main rooms have reversible air conditioning units offering cooling and heating, so a comfortable temperature can be had regardless of the season. There are louvered shutters in both bedrooms to keep out the sun during the day and keep it cool, allowing you to lay in as long as you like!
Outdoors; the 3.6m full width patio doors lead out onto the patio/garden area, which is set-back from the pool area so is private, but still has lovely views of the poolside and countryside beyond. It is great for alfresco dining, with patio table, chairs and umbrella provided and the balcony above providing additional shade for those who don't want to sit in full sunlight when eating or relaxing. A Charcoal BBQ is also available to use. The large pool is great for a quick dip or for some more serious swimming and with are sun-loungers and umbrellas provided around the poolside is a lovely place to relax and catch some rays! There are also showers, WC's and changing facilities available, under the pool.

The Cypriots are very hospitable folk and with English widely spoken are easy to strike up a conversation with, and more than happy to help should you need directions or further suggestions to help you get the best out of your holiday.

Polis is situated 35km North of Paphos on the Western side of the island of Cyprus close to the Akamas Peninsula and Aphrodite's pool. The area is truly breath-taking with an excellent climate, beautiful scenery and un-spoilt beaches. Many Cypriots chose to relax here and have their holiday homes in this area.

Our holiday home is located in the countryside on the outskirts of Polis, which is a small town located on Chrysochous Bay, boasting sparkling turquoise-blue waters and bordering the beautiful Akamas Peninsula Nature Reserve/National Park. It sits amongst a small number of low-level houses and apartments in beautifully landscaped grounds, surrounding a large shared swimming pool with lovely views all round of fields and hills and is a lovely place to relax. Local shops are a stones-throw away offering a good selection of the basics and a really good supermarket is just 5 minutes away offering wide variety of local & international produce.
