Guestbook comments from the owner
We came back from Cyprus and stayed 10 days in the Lysandra house in Pissouri village.

We are a French family with two children and the house was perfectly suited for us, confortable, well equipped and spacious.

The village of Pissouri is very cute and perfect for visiting the rest of the island. Pissouri Bay has a beautiful beach 5 minutes away by car.

We very much enjoyed our stay in your house.

I am a twice retired teacher, still teaching occasionally, with wife Sue due to retire this summer (2014).

We have lived in the same house in Sutton Coldfield

for nearly 30 years but intend to take advantage of retirement and spend more time in Pissouri in the future.

Peter and Sue Orton purchased this villa in 2006

Buying in Pissouri was pure fluke. We came across the area, almost by accident, during a visit in 2005 and immediately fell in love with it. We initially placed a deposit on a nearby apartment but changed our minds and lost the deposit after being introduced to 'Lysandra'. The deposit was well worth losing when taking into account the space and freedom we bought. It is situated in a quiet cul de sac and so close to the village square. The neighbours are British expats and all very friendly ensuring that we have a warm welcome on every visit.

Sea and mountain views, beautiful sunrises over the Med, enhanced by breakfast on the patio. Shops, bars, restaurants and tavernas can be found in the nearby village square all offering excellent food and superb genuine Cypriot hospitality. A five minute drive takes you to the bay and beach for energetic sea activities or watching the world go by.

Again there are excellent eating places for all tastes and budgets. Not too far away there are other beaches at Melanda, Kourion, Avdimou and others.

The large towns of Paphos and Limassol are very accessible via the motorway and can both be reached in less than half an hour. An excellent base for access to all parts of the island.

RELAXING BEACH HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
Excellent location in a quiet village 5km from the sea and 125m from a communal pool. Car hire recommended in order to get to Pissouri village, reach the beach (which is not within easy walking distance) or make an excursion to Paphos or Lemesos. The owner provided helpful directions on how to reach the villa and also good instructions on use of the villa on arrival. Cooking facilities were very convenient, including gas hobs and an oven as well as adequate utensils, meaning we could eat al fresco every day on the patio and try cooking some Cypriot specialities ourselves. We also enjoyed the broad selection of films and holiday books on offer.

On arrival we found the villa clean and everything working, as well as a number of towels which were useful given the frequency of trips to the pool to cool off as temperatures approached 40 degrees. The air conditioning in the rooms was also helpful in this respect, although the lack of remote or manual controls meant we were unable to adjust the temperature or set the timer to prevent the bedroom temperature from getting too low during the night.

We would recommend the Two Friends restaurant in the village, which provides great customer service and food, as well as a day trip to the Akamas Peninsula where you can take a cruise round the coastline.

A LOVELY QUIET AND SPACIOUS PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
A very spacious and comfortable place to stay, well equipped with everything you need for a self catering holiday, including all the small things you usually have to go out and buy. We ate at home most evenings, and were able to prepare easy stir fries using the wok. We ate out twice, at The Two Friends, and were made welcome - even when we arrived late after our flight arrival. There is a large supermarket you pass on your way to and from the villa which has wonderful pastries.....

The owners were very obliging when we had a couple of requests, which made our holiday plans runs very smoothly.

Absolutely loads of space and a lovely patio to have breakfast and a secluded rear area for late afternoon drinks or sunbathe after returning from your day out.

Very relaxing place, and a scops owl calling each evening and swallows nesting outside on the front patio - lovely to watch.

Thank you Pete and Sue for sharing your place with us.

COMFORTABLE STAY

  • 5 of 5
Our family of three enjoyed two relaxing weeks in Villa Lysandra. The house is well shaped and equipped with everything you need. It is located conveniently in a quiet area, yet in walking distance to the village center. I can only recommend the property as a good place to stay in Pissouri.

THE VILLA WAS EXACTLY AS DESCRIBED.

  • 5 of 5
The villa was very clean and spacious. We`ve never seen so much wardrobe space. The kitchen was well equipped, but given the village was a leisurely 10 minute stroll we only really prepared breakfast and snacks. There was a good selection of restaurants to choose from and we need to return as we didn`t sample all of them ! The information pack and recommendations were very useful.The new bathroom was an unexpected treat. The neighbours were friendly but not intrusive and the area was lovely and quiet. excellent for relaxing and re-charging our batteries. The view of the sea and expansive sky (especially the stars at night) were perfect. We were glad we choose the village area to stay near and not the beach and we were thoroughly pleasesd that we had chosen Lysandra.

VILLA LYSANDRA PISSOURI VILLAGE

  • 5 of 5
We have just arrived back in the cold and snowy UK after spending a wonderful 6 weeks at Villa Lysandra This villa has all that you need for short or long term holiday It is very comfortable , very spacious , and has all that you need with regard to facilities . If you are an early riser then the sunrises from the patio are well worth getting up for
We did a lot of walking and there were plenty of quiet roads and tracks to inverstigate from a few hundred metres to several kilometres The village is quite small but there are plenty of restuarants takeaways two banks one supermarket one charity shop (if you run out of reading matter) Platea was our favourite eating out place and they have regular weekend music nights and Cyprus music nights OVrakas also do mid week greek nights
A car is not absolutely necessary but if you want to go to Paphos .Limassol or the Troodos you are going to need a Hire Car

The neighbours are all very friendly and helpful and all are ex pats Make yourself known to them is the best way to break the ice If you dont then they will leave you alone not wishing to intrude on your holiday We spent quite alot of time just passing the time of day with them

Peter was absolutely brilliant helping us with arrangements and providing vital informatio
about the village etc
So if you're going for a week or for a month you can guarantee you will have an excellent stay at Lysandra I wish I was back there now Maybe next year

RELAXING BREAK

  • 4 of 5
We spent 3 wks in Lysandra. Lovely villa, in good location halfway between Pafos and Limassol. Made good use of the hire car. We did quite a bit of walking. Weather mostly perfect for walking in day (warm, but one or 2 rainy days), cool in evenings.
We made v good use of the lemon and grapefruit trees - lemonade, lemon curd, lemon cake etc. Helped by a copy of Delia’s cookbook from the excellent second hand bookshop in Pissouri. We got a surprise when we tried to go for a walk near Alekhtora on the first Sunday – were found ourselves in a battle zone – not realising that Sundays and Weds are hunting days throughout the winter. We did return to that area a couple of times for walks – one we really enjoyed was from Alekhtora over the hill to Kato Archimandrita (the ghost village), and then back along the Khapotami Gorge. We also really enjoyed exploring the hills and gorges around Pissouri. We loved the walk from Pissouri Bay, following signs for the naturist beach, then up, up, up through a gorge to the goat farm, along the farm track and back to Pissouri.
Would recommend short (free) guided walks from the Tourist Offices in Pafos, Limasol and Germasogeia organised in the winter. The 2 in Germasogeia included a ride on a renovated Bedford village bus which was fun.
Finally, just to say thank you to Pete for all your help prior to our visit.

The villa is located just a short five minute walk away from the traditional village square of Pissouri which is found almost exactly halfway between the main tourist towns of Paphos & Limassol. Access to both towns is by way of the A6 & takes about 20 to 25 minutes to either. The area, being situated 800 feet above sea level, offers full panoramic sea & mountain views. A 5 minute drive down the road is the picturesque resort of Pissouri Bay, which provides an extensive Blue Flag beach, a number of water related sports, several tavernas & restaurants & the prestigious Colombia Hotel & Colombia Beach Resort. Within easy reach are the championship standard golf courses at Secret Valley & Aphrodite Hills. As a contrast to the coast, the Troodos Mountains, with its spectacular scenery & many walks through pine forests can be reached well within a 2 hour car drive.

Pissouri is excellently located as a base to reach the numerous historical sites & resorts around Cyprus.
