About Brian Heade

Brian was born in Cardiff, Wales and Val in Hampton Court, Surrey. We have been living outside of the UK since 1980, and retired to Cyprus in 2008.

Brian Heade purchased this villa in 2000

Why Brian Heade chose Paphos & Suburbs

We built our main home in 1994, and later had the opportunity to purchase the plot in front of ours. So, we were able to build the holiday home in 2000, two levels below us, which enabled us to save our magnificent views.

What makes this villa unique

The benefit of the home, is that, Brian and Val live above the property for any local advice and problem resolutions. However, we do try to have minimal impact on the guests, and carry out the gardening and pool cleaning facilities when guests are not in residence

Shsh, Don't Tell Everyone!

  • 5 of 5

We have used this villa every year for the past 8/9 years and consider ourselves as part of the extended Brian and Val Heade family. However, we don't want too many people to know about it, as the bookings are already being taken for 2018 and we don't want to miss out! The photographs and descriptions of the villa are accurate but cannot explain the peace and quiet of this enchanting corner of Tsada village. Neither can they describe the pleasure of sitting in the pool on the steps (now provided with a sun-shade) with a glass of Kalamos wine and a good book, with the temperature reaching 45 degrees! We love this place, Tsada village and the Paphos area in general, but don't tell everyone!

We were one of Brian and Val's first customers in 2008, and we have returned almost every year since then. For the past two years we have visited in May, and have enjoyed lovely weather - the pool was touching 28 degrees this year! As someone who - in part - uses the break at Tsada to write music, the peace and lovely gardens are ideal. There are two good restaurants within walking distance, and we also enjoy cooking local produce in the very well-appointed kitchen. Having written a few reviews in the past, I'm running out of superlatives for this one , but the number of five star reviews on this site tell their own story. We were so pleased to find this gem - and the lovely owners - nine years ago, completely by chance, and it changed our holidaying for ever !! Many thanks to you both.

Owner's Response: What a wonderful review. Stephen and Pat have become a part of our extended family, who as returnees, make up 50% of our annual bookings. It brings a whole new concept to 'Timesharing', that is, the ability to enjoy a holiday without any of the financial overheads of maintaining your own property. We look forward to their next visit in 2018.

Calm and cozy apartment with fantastic garden/pool

  • 5 of 5

Seeking for a week of quietness and relaxation, we found the perfect spot to do so. The villa is not very far away from the airport (20 min) and easy to find. Since we arrived late night, it was fantastic that Val & Brian provided a starter kit - even with self made jam.

The villa is surrounded by a beautiful garden, many places to enjoy the sun and a beautiful view. We were particularly surprised about the large size of the pool - perfect to take a swim! The interior of the villa is equipped with literally everything you need, I found all the items (and even more) what I have at home. The villa is very spacious, has a big living room and bed room. Perfect for our needs! Although we had not had strong internet connection, we enjoyed very much the large DVD collection.

Around the villa, there are places to eat nearby and down the street you'll find also a small shop. Paphos, the cultural capital of the island, is some 10 min away which means there is the full offer of supermarkets, restaurants, and anything else what you are searching for.

Besides the cultural sites in Paphos, by car there is a lot more to do and explore around Tsada. Val & Brian are always happy to assist and answer any query and questions.

Altogether we had a great time and would visit again any time!

Owner's Response: Many thanks Dina and Peter for your constructive review, Val and I are so pleased that you both enjoyed your time at our guest villa. You are correct about the poor internet connection. However, all guests are encouraged to use the WiFi provided from our home, which is only a few steps up from the swimming pool. We would be more than pleased to welcome you back sometime in the future.

A second home in Cyprus

  • 5 of 5

This was our 6th visit to Brian and Val's Mini Villa over the past 6 years. We just enjoy going back & back & back. What more can be said. It is said the the proof of the pudding is in the eating and after 6 holidays this is very true. There have been a couple of improvements since our last visit, a new mattress on the bed and new shower screen.

I agree with everything that has been written in the previous critiques. It really is quite a special place in a lovely area with 2 very good inexpensive Taverneras within walking distance.

If you also enjoy getting out and about, as we do, then there are lot of places to see and things to do. If you are planning a visit to the Paphos area then Tsada is a great place to stay and remember to contact Brian about where to rent a car.

Thank you Brian and Val we had really enjoyable stay.

Beautiful and tranquil... simply stunning.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Brian and Val's beautiful "mini villa". What can I say?.. Nothing beats that first glass of chilled rosé (on our arrival at about 11pm!) sat out on the patio, breathing in the sight of the twinkling lights of Pafos in the distance and the heady smell of jasmine in the air... it's bliss!!

We will definitely be booking again for next year. This villa has everything we could ask for; beautiful gardens, amazing pool and so well equipped with everything for a hassle free stay.

As per our previous visit we were met at Pafos Airport by Andy Phillips (car rental); again, such fantastic service.

Brian and Val are conveniently on hand if required, but always non-intrusive.

The local restaurants and tavernas are fantastic and very affordable.

One of my favourite days was spent playing cribbage under the carob tree in the garden, consuming a few "cooling" beverages. The tranquility here is just what we need, coming from our hectic lives back in the UK.

Put simply, we love, love, LOVE this villa :)

Thank you so much and see you again soon! Alex and Steve
