Pasithea is the Greek Goddess of rest and relaxation, which is why we chose the name for our lovely villa. What could be more appropriate!
Villa Pasithea is owned by two English couples, Venetia and Rick Peet, and Carol Rowe and Chris Bradshaw, who all live and work in Hampshire. We are very proud of our beautiful Villa in Alethriko, and hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
Alethriko is a lovely and peaceful village, and is only a 15 minute drive from Larnaka International Airport. There are excellent local tavernas and a superb, well-stocked supermarket is only 10 minutes drive away. Villa Pasithea is ideally sited to visit Larnaca, with its excellent beaches and cosmopolitan atmosphere, and the Troodos mountains are only an hour away, and the beach resorts of Aya Napa and Protaras only 40 minutes away. Of course the wonderful Cyprus climate, with 340 sunny days a year on average, was a big factor in our decision to buy here! We know you will enjoy a relaxing stay in Villa Pasithea - it is just a great place to chill out and unwind.
Larnaca is a very cosmopolitan town offering everything you need for a fantastic holiday. It is often un-appreciated by those who don’t know any better, who think it is merely home for the islands main International Airport.

In addition to all of the things Larnaca its self has to offer it is perfectly placed on the island making it an ideal base from which to explore the rest of the island.

For those who enjoy walking there are tracks leading up to the top of the hills of the valley to admire the breathtaking sea view to one side and the panoramic views over the valley on the other.
Villa Pasithea is 1km from the centre of the village and just a short walk to the nearest taverna-15 EUR for a massive meze (big mix of dips, grilled meats, salad and Cypriot traditional dishes.). Lots of other tavernas within 15 minutes' drive to many of the nearby villages or a 15 minute drive down the coast to Zigi or Makenzie for a fabulous fish meze.You are spoilt for choice and certainly won't go hungry!!

The beauty of Alethriko is that while the village is so tranquil and idyllic, it is only a 2 minute drive to the main motorway and centrally placed on the island so anyone wanting to explore the many things Cyprus has to offer can do so with ease.
