if you are looking for a special villa to rent in Cyprus, Astéri, meaning star in Greek, could be exactly what you are searching for. It is a located approx 40 minutes from Paphos, in the picturesque village of Steni, just 8 minutes from the old town of Polis with its cobbled square and lovely beaches, this fabulous single story villa is perfect for extended families or friends sharing as the house is arranges with 3 bedrooms and bathrooms on one side and 2 on the other with a spacious kitchen/living area in the middle.
This villa is known locally as "The Castle on the Hill" due to the winding drive leading up the villa from the quiet lane and the perimiter lights on the wall surrounding the villa can be seen from miles away and look just like a constellation of stars. This villa has one of the best outdoor living areas, with a lovely private, heated pool, stone BBQ with outdoor kitchen and pool bar with sea views.There are plenty of loungers and a day bed around the pool and a large wooden pergola with a dining table for 10 over looking the sea.
2 bedrooms have patio doors with fly-screens leading out onto the pool terrace and two have either sea or mountain views.
The pretty gardens are filled with bougainvillea, roses, olives and jasmine and there is a wonderful pool bar positioned with sea views.
The pool can be heated by arrangement which is perfect for the shoulder season or winter months, and for guests wanted to stay in the cooler season there is a log fire and oil central heating may be able to be arranged.
The villa is extremely private and is not overlooked in any way. A long drive leads to iron gates which open out to your very own piece of paradise. The little village of Steni has a wonderful village life museum and a little Taverna selling local wines and probably the best homemade Cypriot cuisine on the island.
The lovely mountain villages of Peristerona and Lysos and the Paphos forest are all a short drive away.
Air conditioning is availble and is free up to a fair usage policy which includes being on at night in all bedrooms booked. If guests required any additional air con it is charged at local rates, but so far the usage allowance has been more than enough for our guests.
Please note that the villa has 4 good size bedrooms all with sea and mountain views. The villa is set up for 8 or 9 people. There is a 5th bedroom if required.
After viewing many "private villas" this one was our dream. it is secluded but not isolated and not overlooked in any way. Fabulous outdoor living. We live in the next village and are able to assist guests if required.
Incredible views. Private and secluded but not isolated. Spacious rooms. Fantastic outdoor living area with 50" tv for watching movies under the stars. Proximity to both the mountains and the beaches. Just 45 minutes to the airport. 3 bedrooms are en-suite. We love that the villa is not overlooked in anyway and we can play music loud anf no-one can hear yet we are just 5 minutes from the village.
