“Amazing” I have just got back from staying at this fantastic villa. We stayed for a week from the 8th - 15th September 2011. We booked car hire through Europcar and drove ourselves to the villa. We flew into Paphos and it took approx 60 min to get to the villa due to not knowing the roads. The directions were brilliant and we found it with no problems. The villa has all mod cons and there was bread and milk in the fridge when we got there :-) There was also a nice bottle of wine which was a happy sight after the travelling.
The next morning we had out welcome meeting which was fantastic. We found out where the supermarket was (paps) and the best places to eat on the harbour.
The Villa was extremely clean and fresh when we arrived. There are French doors leading out to the back of the villa from the downstairs bedroom and there is also a balcony out of the master bedroom, with exceptional views of the peninsula and Latchi.
All local amenities are no more than a five min drive away and Paphos (when you get to know the roads) is only a 30-40 min drive away.
During our stay we went to the Baths of Aphrodite: http://www.ultimatecyprus.com/places-of-interest/26-baths-of-aphrodite which was brilliant. Not that much to see however, there is a nature trail you can walk along the coast to the rock. Aphrodite Bath was only about 10 mins drive.
We also went to the mosaics in Paphos (well worth a trip if your in the area) http://www.visitpafos.org.cy/Paphos_Mosaics.aspx
The pool was a lot larger than we imagined and was a great relief from the mid day heat. There is decking with tables and chairs which is great in the evenings for eating and taking it the views. The locals are very friendly and always talk to you and make you feel welcome. I would recommend Y&P if you are dining out in Latchi. We went here 3 times and had a great verity of meat and fish dishes.
Overall the villa and surrounding area is amazing! I will be booking again for next year….but for longer.
“Miss” Lovely spacious homely villa in great location with a fab pool and outside area

Great communication with uk owner and Max from the management company in Cyprus
Wouldn't hesitate to book again 5* service
“Wow - what a great vacation rental!” We stayed in three separate villas on our Summer vacation to Cyprus this year. All three were in different parts of the island. I think I might regret telling you all just how good this particular rental is. We're a large family of 5, we need space, we need a peaceful location and we want a nice villa that feels like a treat. This villa has it all.
The location is perfect. Polis is the only place to visit in Cyprus now. Its where the locals go for a break and there are relatively few foreign tourists. It has a bunch of good restaurants, some perfect beaches and the locals are really friendly too. This villa is located a 15 minute drive from polis, nestled in the beautiful mountains with views to the sea that are perfect. Its utterly peaceful but yet close enough to civilisation when you need it.
The villa itself has a great layout. There are three good sized bedrooms, with ac for the evening, and plenty of outside living space to enjoy too. The upstairs patio is a great place to see the sun go down each evening. The pool is great, well sized and well maintained. We really could not fault the villa at all.
We enjoyed our vacation in Cyprus but, until we stayed here, had thought we might not go back. The Lost Castle changed our minds for us. We would definitely go back.
“A View To Die For...................” Just spent a week at Villa Azura (28 Sep - 05 Oct). The Villa was excellent - quite modern but every thing the holidaymaker would need; what made it special was the fantastic heated swimming pool (and yes we did need the heating as it got quite chilly towards the end of the day). The location above Latchi gave spectacular views of the bay but was within easy driving of the marina and restaurants.
One hour's driving was the bustling port of Paphos with an excellent selection of shops and restaurants - worth a visit. Another must do is a trip to the Troodos Mountains - spectacular views of the island.
And if you want something special - visit the Anassa Hotel for a drink or a meal - not cheap but stunning.
It has been 24 years since my wife and I spent our honeymoon in Cyprus and this was our first visit back - will it be our last? .... I doubt it!!!
“Lovely Villa” This really is a lovely 4 star villa. Rav P who dealt with our booking was fantastic and dealt with all of my needy requests even before I arrived. The villa itself is lovely, the bedrooms were very comfortable and two of them shared a balcony with lovely sea views. We all got a good nights sleep as the mattresses were very comfortable. The bathrooms were adequate. The downstairs was really nice with big patio doors that opened up to a view of the pool and sea. The kitchen was very well equipped and there was a nice dinning table to sit 8. The downstairs annex is great for another family it had a separate twin bedroom and then a small lounge area with a big double bed in an alcove with their own separate bathroom. There was a slight musty smell on the stairs leading down but you could not smell it in the bedroom. The villa has a lovely big pool and there were nice sun loungers for us all with a couple of parasols. There is also a big table and chairs with a parasol outside. Coral Bay is a lovely resort for families and the villa is within easy walking distance of main strip with all the restaurants and bars and the beach. You do not need a car unless you want to travel further afield. There is a good bus service that will take you to Paphos town. I would definitely recommend this villa and would definitely book again the next time I visit Coral Bay.
“Tranquil haven” We stayed here for a short break in early May. The apartment is situated in a charming village with far reaching views across countryside and up into the mountains. It's village location gives you a holiday that makes you feel part of a community, rather than a bland hotel in a tourist district. Our trip coincided with Easter so it was lovely to see the village alive with activity and to listen to the morning church bells. The apartment is clean, surprisingly spacious and simply furnished and a perfect base for day trips, either to the beach or into the wider countryside.
