Description from owner

Description

The villa sleeps up to six. There are 2 bedrooms; a double and a twin bedded room and a sofa bed in the lounge. The villa is fully air conditioned for your comfort. There is a large through lounge, dining and kitchen area with 2 sets of sliding patio doors open on to large sun terrace, with table and chairs overlooking the back garden where natural shade is provided by pine trees. On the development at Pine bay is a full sized tennis court, squash courts, a large pool with adjacent toddler pool and showers and a club house.

We bought this property as a holiday home to use ourselves. We fell in love with the area as you feel like you have really escaped withing minutes of leaving the airport.

The area (pine forest) is just so relaxing and Pissouri village a pretty traditional village. The development has combination of visitors and residents (mainly British) that are very friendly and helpful so you feel you are getting a 'real' experience, not just staying in a holiday resort.

There is lots to see in a short distance: villages, vineyards, beaches, mountains..even driving to the North is easy and not far.

The things we enjoy most are a stroll though the forest, the kids love to listen out for the cow (goat) bells and see the goats and I like to take in the wonderful sea views the other side and just breathe in that fresh air!

Another favourite is a stroll into the village for a nice mese in the village square. Pissouri village retains its traditional character with a pedestrianised central area. It has several family run tavernas and restaurants, a Greek Orthodox Church, a good bakery and butchers, postal agency, banks, internet café and supermarkets.

In the summer the village holds a Cyprus night in the square every Wednesday enjoyed by the locals and tourists alike, making it a true Cypriot experience.

Pissouri Bay is just a 5 minute drive from the village. It has its own selection of tavernas, supermarkets and bars. Watersports are available and the beach boasts a “Blue Flag” status.

Secret Valley Golf Club is 15 minutes away, Aphrodite Hills 10 mins and Tsada Golf Course 20 minutes by car

Cyprus offers a climate of plentiful sunshine throughout the year. The summer months stretch from Mid May through to Mid October guaranteeing you a holiday of almost unbroken sunshine. Even through the winter months of December, January and February, the sun shines for on average 6 hours per day, although it can rain

If you are looking for a 'real experience' in a truly relaxing environment this is it

It is a lovely spot...come and see for yourself.

Location description from owner

The Limassol District

Cyprus has a Mediterranean climate plentiful in sunshine throughout the year. The summer months stretch from Mid May through to Mid October guaranteeing you a holiday of almost unbroken sunshine. Even through the winter months of December, January and February, the sun shines for on average 6 hours per day, although it can rain. Average temperatures range from 13C in January to maximum mean daily temperature of 36C in the height of summer.

Apart for the fabulous weather, there is much else to do; being and island, water sports feature strongly. Discover the magic of the underwater world by snorkelling or diving in the warm crystal clear seas. Windsurfing and sailing can be enjoyed all the year round, thanks to steady winds and calm predictable seas, while coastal cruising and deep-water fishing are also popular. Walking, cycling, golf, fishing and horse riding are some of the other activities available. Hire a 4 by 4 and explore some of the breath taking scenery that is abundant all over the island from costal areas, ancient forts, to pine forests and mountain terrain all in a short drive.Try the waterpark for thrills, or bungee jumping for an extreme sensation.

Feel the romance where Aphrodite, goddess of love and beauty, once roamed. Visit the sea by the rocks known as Petra tou Romiou where she was believed to have risen from the waves, make a pilgrimage to her sanctuary at Kouklia, or see the grotto near Polis where she was supposed to have bathed.

Pissouri

Pine Bay Villas is set just outside Pissouri, an unspoiled village near the mythological birthplace of Aphrodite, just off the main highway from Limassol to Paphos, halfway between the two towns and only 20 minutes from Paphos international airport.

The development is within the only remaining pine forest on the outskirts of Pissouri village and offers green views right down to the sea below and is ideally situated to explore coast, villages and mountains of friendly Cyprus.

Pissouri village retains its traditional character with a pedestrianised central area. It has several family run tavernas and restaurants, a Greek Orthodox Church, a good bakery and butchers, postal agency, banks, internet café and supermarkets.

In the summer the village holds a Cyprus night in the square every Wednesday enjoyed by the locals and tourists alike, making it a true Cypriot experience.

Pissouri Bay is just a 5 minute drive from the village. It has its own selection of tavernas, supermarkets and bars. Watersports are available and the beach boasts a “Blue Flag” status.

“Comfortable well equipped property in excellent location”

Reviewed 13 Feb 2016

The Retreat is conveniently placed on a very attractive site next to a pine wood on the outskirts of the pretty village of Pissouri.The property has everything one could possibly need for an enjoyable self catering holiday.

Thank you, we are pleased you had a lovely stay and look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

“Absolutely perfect villa for a family holiday”

Reviewed 30 Sep 2013

This villa ticked all the boxes for us when we visited with our two children aged 1 and 3 during the summer. The villa is very well equipped with children's toys, games and equipment which made our stay comfortable and worry free. We were welcomed to the villa by the local agent when we arrived and found it to be immaculate and well maintained. The location of the villa is excellent and we enjoyed walking into the village for meals in the village square. It is a short drive to the beach and within easy reach of Paphos and Larnaca for days further a field. The clubhouse pool is lovely and there are tennis courts and a super children's play area to use during your stay. Couldn't recommend this villa highly enough.

Thank you. We look forward to seeing you again next year!

“Spacious, light and airy and very welcoming !”

Reviewed 18 Mar 2013

This was our first visit to Cyprus and The Retreat was an ideal base. The villa is very bright and airy and is a very pleasant place to stay. It has all the facilities you require and is very clean. The villa is very easy to find - about 25 minutes from Paphos airport. The chap at the Sixt car hire at the airport gave us directions using the B6 instead of the motorway which was a pleasant drive. We ventured into Pissouri village but we were a bit too early in the season and only a couple of bars were open. Shopping-wise there is a very good supermarket on the B6 as you enter Pissouri and a petrol station there as well. Again the communal pool and site restaurant were still closed so we were unable to try out the facilities. Pine Bay is a largish development but doesn't feel overcrowded - however, in my opinion, a car is a must. The roads were quiet and it was a real pleasure to drive there. Overall a lovely place to stay.

Thanks Ian. We are glad you had a lovely time and enjoyed the villa (and of course Cyprus). Jane

“Home from Home”

Reviewed 3 Nov 2012

We have been travelling to Cyprus for 20 years and it has taken till now to find a real 'home from home'. We like to truely go 'self catering' and at 'The Retreat' there is everything one needs to do exactly that. Comfortable clean surroundings with the all the kitchen equipment you could need. In order to enjoy the sights we would recommend considering hiring a vehicle but there are plenty of places to eat in Pissouri village and a beautiful beach nearby. We will be going back next year- first time ever back to the same villa!

We are so pleased that our Retreat was your retreat and hope we can make it just as special for you next year
