Description from owner


Our villa is perfect for a relaxing vacation with family and friends. At the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, nestled in the Tala Hills, this spacious (400 m2) and air-conditioned villa is on a large plot (1 km2) and is entirely on one level. Both bedrooms are appointed with Mission furniture (introduced by Frank Lloyd-Wright) and have en-suite bathrooms. The kitchen and dining area are fully equipped, and the large lounge area is complete with flat-screen TV, entertainment equipment, chez-lounges, sofas and lounge chairs, and its patio doors open onto a broad veranda. This villa is also ideal for honeymooners (after all, Cyprus is the island of love), and others seeking a peaceful, relaxed lifestyle in close proximity of modern amenities.

The veranda and its adjoining large pool come complete with a built-in barbecue, shaded tables and chairs, and is ideal for al-fresco dining. A large gravel area is at the rear of the property, and is great as a kids play area. Leading off a sweeping private driveway, the garden includes a pond, a lawn, a rose garden, and a grove of exotic trees and plants. Note that the villa was recently re-modeled and, unlike many holiday homes, is frequently updated with high-quality furnishings.

Further details indoors

Broadband wireless Internet included.
Smoking outside only.
High chair and cot provided upon request with a minor additional fee.

Further details outdoors

Outside is the large 10m x 4.2m private solar-heated swimming pool, with a 6 ft deep end, surrounded by a large secluded sunbathing terrace with pool-side furniture.

The terrace also features a traditional, built-in Cypriot coal barbecue, while the rear seating area is equipped with a gas barbecue grill. The entire area is perfect for alfresco dining at all times, especially on those warm summer evenings, and is well illuminated at night.

Privacy fencing provides a secure and effective screen, and the villa has its own shaded private parking behind a secure, remote control gate. A car is advised (although you can get around using the bus at the end of the street, or taxi).

Very Good

“Relaxing place to stay”

Reviewed 15 Dec 2019

We booked for a month while waiting for our furniture to be shipped, having moved to Cyprus. The villa is in a lovely village, quiet and relaxing area, nice house on one level, with lovely pool, fab terrace area and gardens with fruit trees all round. Weather was good even this late in the year. Plenty of parking space behind a secure gate. Everything we needed for self catering was provided in abundance and we had a nice time, good amenities nearby, shops, bars and tavernas within walking distance.

Owner's reply: Gaynor - thank you very much for staying with us - happy to help if you need further help with your move!

Visit Tala every year and needed a new place to stay and this was ideal. Accessible for my husband's wheelchair and well stocked with whatever you need for a comfortable stay. Will be visiting again. The grandchildren loved the pool and the internet and secure parking for our hire car. Hope to be back soon.

Owner's reply: Sandra, Thank you so much for staying with us, and we look forward to your future visits. Kindly, Rory
