Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Don't be surprised if you find yourself spending most of your time outdoors at Aphrodite's Villa. In the large garden, landscaped with indigenous shrubs and flowers, you can relax on comfy garden furniture or dine on fresh local cuisine cooked on the easy-to-use gas BBQ, all in the shade of a cooling pergola. For sunbathing, there is the choice of poolside lounging or why not grab yourself a nice private corner of the large garden.
Inside, the bright and airy open-plan downstairs boasts chic décor in a large fully-equipped kitchen with breakfast bar, an elegant dining area which seats six and a lounge area with plenty of comfortable seating. For your peace of mind, from the kitchen, you can see the swimming pool so can keep your eye on the children playing outdoors. A roomy alcove by the stairs means that you can keep all of your pool and beach gear out of the way. Sliding doors connect the living areas to the patio and pool.
Upstairs, the tastefully-decorated master bedroom with en-suite shower room leads to its own generously-proportioned balcony with endless mountain and sea views. There is two stylish twin rooms each with adjacent en-suite shower rooms and stunning window views. There is a forth double bedroom situated downstairs giving easy access to the outside terrace and pool. This bedroom also has its own private shower room and fabulous sunshine views. Convenient for older guests as the patio doors lead directly from the bedroom onto the sunny terrace and swimming pool area.
The views from the balcony stretch the length of the coast line, and are just perfect for watching the sunset. You'll find yourselves waking up and wanting to take breakfast out on the balcony, come lunchtime it makes a great sun bathing deck and come dinner time, just a perfect place to see out the day! At night you won't want to stay inside, you'll just want to sit under the stars!! This villa is perfect for families, friends even a little bit of romance!

The Paphos region
If you have time its worth exploring Cyprus. Nowhere is that far and if you end up finding the road turns to a dirt track (and you don't have a 4 x 4) you can always turn back. The popular historical attractions such as Aphrodites Rock and the Tombs of the Kings you will see advertised on the Internet and well signposted locally. A good drive is towards Pissouri on the B6 coast road (past Aphrodite's Rock) and, staying on the B6 past Pissouri go through the British Forces base of Episkopi to Kourion Beach. There are a few interesting archaeological sites off this road and you can end up having a nice meal on Kourion Beach, whilst watching the hang gliders jump off the cliffs above! The other favourite to get away from it all is to head north past Coral Bay to St Georges and on to the Akamas peninsular where the beaches are quieter (and very nice).
Secret Valley Resort
Secret Valley is situated in one of the most beautiful spots in Cyprus with with a picturesque 18 hole golf course and stylish but cozy club house with an excellent restaurant and bar. You are just a few minutes drive from Aphrodite Hills Golf and Leisure Resort where you can play golf or tennis or visit the beautiful spa and the cosmopolitan selection of restaurants and bars in the village square serving Cypriot, British, European and Fusion fare. Less than 10 minutes drive is the stunning brand new Nick Faldo designed Elea Golf Club claimed to have the best clubhouse anywhere in the world.
There is an excellent selection of local sandy beaches around 10 minutes drive away and scores of traditional Cypriot villages nearby with their friendly and varied restaurants and tavernas. These include Mandria, famous for its citrus fruit, Kouklia with its archaeological sites and the charming hill-side Pissouri. There are many local attractions for everyone and you are also only 5 minutes drive from the world-famous spot where legend has it Aphrodite, goddess of love, emerged from the Mediterranean Sea.
