From the owner



Villa Argo is a lovely bungalow located in the idyllic hamlet of Aspro. The villa is fully air conditioned and it has been finished and equipped to very high standards. The air conditioning units also double up as heaters for the cooler nights at the start and end of the season. The water is heated by either solar panel or a back-up immersion heater.

Villa Argo is situated on a hillside overlooking the old hamlet of Aspro with magnificent views across olive groves to Almyrida seaside village, Souda Bay, Karga Island, the Akrotiri Peninsula and south to the White Mountains. The land drops away in front of the villa which allows for breathtaking and uninterrupted views of the surrounding sea, rugged valleys and the mountains.

It is an ideal spot for walkers and for people who seek relaxation and tranquillity. Yet, it is only 1.6 kilometres from the traditional seaside resort of Almyrida (Almerida), with beautiful sandy beaches, many of them shallow and safe for children, with water sports, traditional tavernas, shops and other amenities. Villa Argo is an ideal retreat for those seeking for excellent value accommodation in a sleepy hamlet in rural setting with beautiful views, yet close to the seaside and amenities.

This spacious bungalow is particularly suitable for families with young children and for older and less abled people. It has 3 bedrooms, (one of which is en-suite with a shower) and a second family bathroom with bath.

Each bedroom opens directly onto a semi-covered terrace and two of the bedrooms enjoy the sea views. There is a spacious open plan lounge/dining room area incorporating a fully equipped kitchen with all the modern amenities.

The double doors in the lounge open directly onto a sea facing semi-covered front terrace and gravelled front and side garden, which provides a shady area for enjoying drinks and breakfast. The private garden has a large wooden dining table and six chairs for dining al-fresco.

All external doors and windows have fly screens for your comfort.


There is a TV and a DVD payer with a selection of DVDs and a Hi Fi for your entertainment. There is also a selection of books, including travel books for your enjoyment during your stay.

And for those winter stays, Villa Argo is equipped with wall mounted slim electric heaters in each bedroom and free standing oil filled electric radiators for the sitting room areas, in addition to the air conditioning system that also can be used for heating.
