On Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays the restaurant is also open in the evenings.
Kouklia 5 mins from Villa - number of tavernas in Kouklia the restaurants serve good quality Greek food and wine at very competitive prices. The best of these is probably ‘Thanasis Place’ where you can enjoy good food plus traditional live music and dancing on a Saturday.
Kouklia is also of cultural interest as it is home to the ‘Sanctuary of Aphrodite’ which is worth a visit. Around 20km away, Paphos is split into 2 distinct areas, the old town (Ktima) on the hill being a vibrant market town retaining much of the traditional Cypriot charm and character, whilst the port area of Kato Paphos is distinctly more tourist orientated with an array of bars, clubs and restaurants.
The harbour is a wonderful place to relax over lunch and a drink with wonderful views of the coastline and the Mediterranean sea.

"Perfect Villa and Location for a relaxing holiday"
Villa Akanthou meet and exceeded all our expectations, situated in a quiet location this well equiped villa was spotlessly clean and had everything we wanted for our stay. A car is essential if you are going to venture out and explore the area.
The setting is idyllic, looking over open countryside and down to the coast. The swimming pool is a real gem, just for your own use, no one else !
The owners Calvin and Sandra cannot do enough to help and the team that look after the villa when you are there are very helpful and nothing is too much trouble.
We have been many times now and look forward to returning again in the near future

"Great Holiday Villa !"
This was our second year staying at Villa Akanthou and it was just as great!
The whole booking process was so easy and the owners very helpful. The lady who looks after the villa is so lovely. We had problems getting the tv and dvd to work but she kept coming back to make sure we had got it going! I had toothache while out there and she also gave me the number of a dentist incase I needed it.
The villa is spacecious and very clean.The kitchen is well equipped and had everything we needed. There are plenty of areas you could go and sit if you wanted a bit of peace and quiet and the pool area is lovely. We had many lazy pool days and then went out for dinner.
We often ate at Maria's in Kouklia , food was good and Maria is lovely, she would often come and sit at our table after our meal and chat!
You do need a car because you are in a quiet area but main road is close and everywhere easy to get to.
All in all we had a really lovely holiday and thoroughly recommend Villa Akanthou. Do not hesitate to book this villa, you won't be disappointed!

"We had an excellent weekend in villa Akanthou"
From the beginning everything was perfect. The owner of the villa was very helpful and professional. His quick replies on any question assisted us in organizing our weekend very quick since we have decided 2 days prior to our arrival to book the specific villa.
Representative of the owner in the island was very helpful and polite also.
In respect of the villa, everything was clean, villa had everything you need in order to spend your weekend away from home. It is located in a quite area, in which you can relax with family or friends.
We will definitely prefer the specific villa and recommend it to others. Do not lose your time searching for villas in Cyprus, just search for villa Akanthou and i quarantee you a great time

"A relaxing and comfortable villa with easy access to Paphos."
This was a well equipped and modern villa with a good pool and although there were close neighbours they were friendly and there were only a few houses. All rooms were fresh and comfortable with aircon/heating as required. All appliances were thought of and available. Linen was clean and fresh. There are 3 bath/shower rooms which are great, although the one downstairs serving the groundfloor bedroom is narrow but we quickly became used to it. We would revist this villa as it is considerably nicer than the advertisement photos show. The owners were most efficient and helpful. This is a well priced villa in a quiet spot but near the main road so access to all areas was very easy to attain.
