Villa Athena, what can I say, we all had the perfect holiday in the perfect location for the 4th year running.
The villa was perfect as usual, no problems and not lacking in anything you wouldn't find at home, the pool is fab the kids live in it from the moment we get there until late into the night due to the solar heating its just never cold, the beach is a firm favorite as they love the water sports, carhire is Not needed unless you want to explore the island which is great and very clearly sign posted whereever you are driving to and Cy Breeze are brilliant to deal with nothing is to much for them we always spend the last day in Pafos and they collect the car from the car park as we use it to store the cases for the day.
The wavedancer boat trip should not be missed its a great evening of dinner cabaret fireworks and dancing out at sea, the local buses are very easy to use and are only a euro into town from the villa so won't break the bank, taxi's are everwhere so never stuck or stranded, Nicole is always just a phone call away should we need any assistance with anything, and booking is so easy compared to most and Sundance Villas couldn't be more helpful if they tried, it really is a holiday from start to finish the only downside is that you have to go home eventually.

Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say what a wonderful stay we had at Villa Athena. The villa exceeded our expectations. The gardens and pool area were beautiful.
Villa Athena with heated private pool, at night
The villa itself was clean, very well equipped and far far better than any other accommodation we have stayed in. A real home from home. Nicole was only a text/phone call away and Cy Breeze and Stevies Taxis were both excellent too. The Sea Caves and Troodos amongst our favourite days out. We really do hope to return and have recommended you to many already!!!!
Replying to your question about the grab-handle, yes, there was one near the steps and it certainly made a difference getting in and out of the pool. Actually I noticed that everybody was using it and not just me!
Another thing which we found useful was a couple of small plastic stools in the villa. I found these helped me get into the bath/ shower. One also was very useful to me in climbing into large hire car - in fact we took it around with us!
Highlights of the holiday: What a wonderful holiday - wish we were still there. Cy-Breeze car hire met us at the airport with a much needed friendly face. The villa itself was perfect for us and the pool was warm and inviting and the car even had its own shaded area!
Three of our party went out on the Jeep Safari to the mountains and had a great time. On another day two of us went to Polis via the rougher roads via the Lara peninsula. When we got to Polis (where we'd had a villa from you last year) we went to Moussakalis Taverna and had lunch and were remembered from last year!
I hired a mobility scooter from Oberon Explorations who kindly brought along a portable ramp so I could get up and down the fairly serious kerbs in the local area. They were much used.
Thanks to Nicole the Sundance Rep. for her help - especially in finding out where and when the local football matches were being held.
Looking forward to next year - Carolyn, Dave, Victoria, Matthew Ellis and Jenny
We are cruising next year, but are looking to return the year after. So will contact you nearer the time.
Absolutely delighted. Can't think of a thing we would change or anything that was a miss.
Villa very roomy and airy. Spotless and well equipped.
Although we were 2 couples sharing we still had our own space, as the villa is on two levels. It would also be ideal for families.
It was great to able to have a swim before breakfast. The pool is maintained to a very high standard. As we were there in August so we didn't need the pool heating, and it was a great temperature anytime of day. Mind you the weather was 37 most days!!! The guy who looked after the pool and gardens was great, very friendly and had a good knowledge of the area, very nice to talk to. The gardens were well cared for and offered sun or shade. The villa had a canopy built on outside where it was nice to eat or read, and the trees also offered shade. While if you could stand that heat the sun loungers could be placed on the lawns. The villa has a carport which was brilliant, as the car was cool to get into at anytime of day.
Nicole was great she came the morning after we arrived, she told us allsorts of things. Trips available (discounts for Sundance clients), bus routes, and places of interest, times of business. She also gave us maps of the local area and the island. We booked the Wavedancer Firework Evening though her. It was a great night. Andrea the owner is charming and very friendly.
We did eat out every night, but the villa has everything you could need if you should want to eat there. We never had a bad meal while there. We tried many restaurants, but returned to 3 a few times. These were:-
La Vigna Trattoria - Italian, friendly service, great food.Try rack of lamb, superb. Coral Bay strip at the far end on the right just before roundabout.
Andria's - Good general menu. Food superb and well presented. Service good, but lacks friendly atmosphere!! We returned for the food. Third of the way along Coral Bay strip on the right opposite the hippopotamus.
Barone's - Good mixed menu. Food good. Service hilarious, the waiters are a delight, lots of crack and banter. Also very near to villa, 'staggering distance'. We returned 3 times nice food...
