The absence of steps makes it particularly attractive and convenient for visitors with restricted mobility. The large living area is air-conditioned and comfortably furnished including Internet TV, DVD-player and stereo system, complemented by a varied library of DVDs, CDs, books and board games catering for all tastes. WiFi Broadband Internet access is available for a small charge.The spacious bedrooms are individually air-conditioned with ceiling fans and provided with extensive storage space.

An air-conditioned Honda CR-V 5-door 4 x 4 vehicle with automatic transmission is available for use by visitors
The Garden: The walled courtyard garden is a pleasant oasis stocked with small trees and shrubs with an automatic watering system to ensure their well being. To the front and rear of the villa there are shady pergola-covered patios whilst the tiled courtyard garden to the side of the property has a table and seating for 6. Two loungers are provided together with 2 sun umbrellas offering extra shade on hotter days.

The car is comprehensively insured and well maintained and has had 4 new tyres fitted this year. Traffic in Cyprus drives on the left, like UK, making it particularly straight forward for British drivers.
Pissouri Village: Pissouri village has long been a favourite holiday destination for British visitors seeking to mix modern facilities with the appeal of a traditional Cyprus village. The local Cypriots are honest and friendly with a cheerful greeting and welcoming smile for visitors. The men folk of the village still gather daily in the shade of the giant rubber tree or at the kapheneion to sip coffee and share gossip. The village square is flanked by tavernas with outside chairs and tables for al fresco dining in the balmy evenings. In the summer months a display of traditional Cyprus dancing and entertainment with authentic Cyprus fare is held in the village square. The village also boasts a modern Greek-style amphitheatre which is the venue for a range of entertainments in season.
We stayed at the Villa Adelaida for 1 week starting from 26th December 2007. The villa is beautifully decorated, spacious and had everything we needed. The welcome pack is a lovely gesture and very much appreciated. The villa is very clean and Christine and Ken, next door act as agents in case assistance is needed.
The rental included a 4wheel drive vehicle, so we travelled around a lot of Cyprus- the Troodos mountains are especially beautiful- stop for coffee in Platres
We found the entire rental procedure very simple and very professional.
I would have no hesitation in returning to or reccomending this accomodation
Cyprus was a new destination for the 4 people in our party but it would be fair to say that we all came away after a one week in late February(2013) wanting more.
The description carried on the HomeAway website was spot on - the village is a very short drive from the sea and the sea in February was warm enough for my wife to swim in - she rated it warmer than Wales in mid-summer so we were quite surprised not to see others taking the plunge. The arrangements and management of the house were very impressive - not only was it spotlessly clean and very well equipped but the book of advice answered every question that popped up in clear non-technical terms. All the furniture was comfortable and newish , the beds being particularly good.
All breakfasts were taken in the garden which is sunny from early morning until late afternoon (or it was when we were there). On the coldest(a relative term) day we drove up into the Troodos mountains to find snow and slush and almost the only precipitation of the week - well worth it.
We ate lunch at various tavernas including anonymous but good establishments in Limasol , Curium and Paphos and the Stou Kir Yianni in Omodos we also had dinner at the Two Friends in Pissouri , . Salads were excellent at all places while the mezes at the Pissouri and Omodos venues were memorable.
Home cooking, too, was very pleasurable, the local vegetables and fruit were of outstanding quality and Cyprus wine while not amazingly cheap( unless you go for the one litre box which I can't resist trying) was very good (unless you go for the one litre box). The kitchen has everything we need .
The various sites along the coast got flying visits and we managed to do what felt like a very reasonable nature walk at Aphrodite Heights where the security guard welcomes and directs you on how to get started - refreshing - and alive with birdlife. Curium and the Paphos antiquities were both amazing and we felt that we might well be seeing them at the right time of year.
In sum , a thoroughly enjoyable experience and well worth trying.
We spent two great weeks in Villa Adelaida the first two weeks in April
2010 the weather was excellent and the Villa was first class.
It was exactly as described by the owner, location, facilities,cleanliness
w.as spot on. The transport arrangement was excellent we were picked up at the Airport and travelled in style.I would deffinately recommend
this villa to anyone who wishes to have a quality relaxing home from home holiday.
What a wonderful stay myself and my family experienced at the Villa Adelaida. It can be difficult to choose the perfect location via the internet and I was extremley please that the listing description provided by the owner was very acurate regarding the location, facilties and layout of the property. The Villa and gardens were spotless and well maintained. The owner provided excellent customer service outlining any possible eventuality and also on arrival at the Villa, a lovely welcome pack of food esstentials waited for us; providing us all with a quite night in after travelling. Our family had an extremley memorable and special holiday which catered for all our needs. We would love to return to the Village of Pissouri and certainley back to the Villa Adelaida in the future.
Had a week in the villa in August 2010. Wonderful villa, furnished to very high standard, and exactly as owner describes in property details. Fully air conditioned. Welcome pack provided by owners very welcome indeed. Good quiet location. Short drive to beach. Within easy walking distance of town and restaurants - highly recommend Bunch of Grapes annd Hideaway. Sparti pub good for a drink as well. Within 30mins driving distance of both Paphos and Limassol, Troodos mountains about an hour - well worth a visit.
One of our party is reliant on a wheelchair, certainly when walking any sort of distance, and the villa was well equipped for her needs, even to the point of the owners providin g a ramp to get up the back door step! It's the little touches that make the holiday so great.
Our two weeks at this villa were superb.It is very comfortable and well equipped,handy for a walk into Pissouri and only 10 minutes from the really beautiful Pissouri bay.The owners had thought of everything we might need and even helped with transfers from the airport.The garden was great for sitting out and there was too much to do to fit it all in. We will certainly go back here.
The villa is 5 minutes walk away from the centre of the popular traditional village of Pissouri, conveniently situated midway between the major towns of Limassol and Paphos. The village is 600’ high and offers spectacular panoramic views to the sea and to the Troodos mountains to the north. Just 3 miles away, Pissouri Bay provides extensive water sport and recreational facilities on its award-winning beach. Within 2 hours visitors can be enjoying cool walks among the sun-dappled, pine-scented forests of the Troodos mountains. Two championship standard golf courses are available within 20 minutes drive. The area abounds with antiquities; the Greco-Roman city and amphitheatre of Curium at Episkopi , medieval Kolossi castle, and the World Heritage Site mosaics and historic fort adjacent to the picturesque Paphos harbour are all worth visiting. The village and bay area feature numerous tavernas and restaurants offering an extensive range of traditional Cyprus dishes and international cuisines.
Golf: Two championship-standard golf courses, Aphrodite's Hills and Secret Valley, are located within 20 minutes drive of Pissouri. A further course, Tsada, is 40 minutes drive away in an idyllic setting in the hills above Paphos. There is a set of men's right-handed clubs in the villa which guests may use should a round of golf appeal.
