"I have to say, we had an amazing time at the Villa, Anna and Gianni (?) really are lovely people and their Villa is a beautiful as they are. It has everything that you could possibly need and more. We did not need to go anywhere as we were so comfortable lounging in or by the pool. The surroundings were so pretty as was most of the local wildlife. The villa was fantastic and I look forward to visiting again and again. The location was Perfect - Exactly as advertised and what we were looking for. We didn't really leave the Villa apart from to go to Limassol a few times as everything you could want was there. We are extremely satisfied with your service. Anna and Gianni are really lovely people and I consider them to be personal friends now. I hope that we can book the Villa again with you at some point soon."

"The villa was immaculate and even better than we had expected. The play area for the little ones was wee received by our grandchildren. Though the road to the Villa is a bit of a dirt track, it meant that the we enjoyed peace, quiet and seclusion. Polis is teeming with restaurants and bars but our family did enjoy Th Old House (?) - opposite the road to Latchi. We also had lunch at The Kolios winery and that was spectacular and not at all expensive. A very efficient service from letsrentonline: our emails were always answered promptly and you tried to help whenever possible. Your suggestions for my daughter's arrival were very kind. Anna's service could not be faulted. She cooked for our arrival and again after 1 week when she came to clean, she left more home cooked food. When we called , she came right over to answer our queries. The pool was cleaned regularly during our stay and was always done discretely. Many thanks for a stressfree rental which helped make our visit so memorable. "

The Paphos region
Paphos, is a jewel in the Mediterranean crown. Beautiful, crystal clear waters, captivating landscapes and scenery, coupled with its attractive year round climate, make Cyprus a very tempting holiday and retirement destination. As well as the main areas of old Paphos town and Kato Paphos, Coral Bay to the west of the town, boasts a lovely sandy beach with friendly and lively restaurants and bars, close by is the enchanting small fishing hamlet of St Georges Bay where you can taste the most succulent freshly caught fish on the Island. A little further out, Troodos mountains provides the surroundings of stunning snow topped mountains looking down on the glistening coastal bay.
Hospitable and friendly people are what you will find on the Island of Cyprus. From rural villages surrounding Paphos down to the harbour with its ancient castle and charming restaurants and bars, you will receive a warm welcome and the opportunity to sample some of the finest cuisine in the World. Share a Meze in Cyprus, and you have tasted the true flavours of the Island, this meal offers you a selection of many Cypriot dishes, sometimes up to 30, so an ideal, and certainly filling, way to try all the different options.
Situated on the banks of the Chrysochou River, Goudi is a peaceful Cypriot village near Polis in Paphos District, Cyprus. Providing an ideal location to explore the beauty of the surrounding area, Goudi is a picturesque village famous for its stone built villas and efforts to maintain the beauty and the traditions of Cyprus.
Goudi is situated between the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea and the spectacular mountains of Paphos Forest and the Troodos. Walking in the forests is a delight. Filled with pine trees, fruit and olive trees, wild flowers and herbs and vineyards the air is scented and the views spectacular.
Both Peristerona and ‘Steni' village centres are just 1-2km away from ‘Georgios Rafaela Villa’ and where you will find a taste of the ‘real Cyprus'. With their mini-markets selling fresh organic produce, coffee shops and restaurants/tavernas as well as the friendly locals, you won't have to travel far to get the most out of your holiday.
Travel a little further into the hills and you will find Lysos, which has a very good horse riding school and shooting range (please ask for details) and is also home to a very good traditional Cyprus taverna, with neighbouring shops and the more widely known Paradisos Hills Hotel which does an excellent Sunday buffet as well as a themed Indian night on a Friday.
Heading back towards the coastline and you will find the small town of Polis. There is plenty of activity to choose from in Polis, whether you wish to dine in one of the many good quality restaurants, have a coffee or lunch in the central square, hire mountain bikes, quad bikes or maybe even a boat!
The nearby Latchi beach is renowned as one of the best in Cyprus and not as crowded as the beaches in and around Paphos itself. Latchi beach is famous for its clear blue sea, soft white sand and a great selection of watersports which are readily available. The watersports available at Latchi include diving, snorkelling, sailing, banana rides and a great deal more. Bring your UK driving licence and you can even hire a boat and explore the Akamas coast from the sea. Drop anchor when you feel like it and swim or snorkel in the warm crystal blue water of the Mediterranean Sea.
For the more adventurous, you can explore the Akamas nature reserve and go all the way round to Lara Beach famous for its turtles and another wonderful unspoilt beach.
You can also venture to the nearby villages of Miliou, Droushia and Panagia or further on to Kathikas with its vineyards and wineries. Other fantastic scenery can be taken in at Cedar Valley and the Troodos mountain range where in winter, you can even ski!
Paphos airport is 40 minutes away (31km) by very good quality roads with English road signs. Visit Goudi (for a taste of the real Cyprus) and you won’t be disappointed.
