Galini is a Greek word which means 'inner peace' or 'tranquility'. This is what you can experience during your stay in one of the Galinia villas. The two villas are situated 25 m apart from each other. You have no optical contact with your neighbors because of the mature garden. Miliou is a small, unspoilt village in the Pafos district. In the area farmers grow citrus fruit, grapes, almonds and olives. In our rural area there are still many traditional villages. Here traditional hospitality still exists. There are many roads to follow if you want to discover the real Cyprus. - In Google Earth you can find the villas at 34'56'08.92"N and 32'27'32.36"E and on YOU TUBE under https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9cFNuLMC4gg

About Barbara Symeou
We, Demetris and Barbara, are a Cypriot/German couple and live in the village. We are happy to help you with information about the area and anything else you might want. Pick fresh oranges from our own fields in season! We will be there for you if you need us.

Why Barbara Symeou chose Theletra
We built the two villas on our own land.

Beautiful Views, Lovely Villa, Peaceful Retreat
Just returned from our second visit to the villa, just as perfect as our first visit. A well appointed villa with great hosts who are close by and make your stay special with thoughtful extras. Breakfast ready for your first morning, a bottle of wine, flowers on the table, fresh oranges for squeezing for juice. We had orange blossom which smelt beautiful.
The views are stunning, we thought they were great in August , still great in April but much greener.
The is a great place for a family or couple to relax but still visit the historic sites of Western Cyprus, Polis is only 10 minutes away and Paphos 30-45 minutes, or take a trip up in to the mountains.
We are checking diaries to see when we can go back.
Beautiful Peaceful Haven
As others will say, the view from the villa is out of this world, this is really an oasis of peace and calm. The villa was beautifully clean when we arrived and was exceptionally well equipped, we were provided with breakfast for the next morning after our late arrival and there were lots of fresh oranges to make juice with. There is even an electric juicer to make it easier. The barbecue was great for alfresco dining. The children loved the pool and in the evening we sat and watched the stars. A great location, short drive to Polis and Latchi, or take a longer drive up in to the hills. Paphos was about 30 mins away. The taverna in the village is a 15 minute stroll away and the food is great and run by a lovely friendly family. Arrived home yesterday and already want to go back
Why go anywhere else?
We have been returning to the hillside village of Miliou since our first visit in 2001. Why go anywhere else? Galinia has everything you could wish for in a holiday villa, with excellent facilities and a superb large private pool. The views are breath-taking, looking down to Miliou itself and across to the hills and mountains in the far distance. And then there is the tranquillity of this setting, where, for hours on end, all you will hear is birdsong or the wind in the trees.
All this just half-an-hour from bustling Paphos or 20 minutes from friendly Polis and its seaside neighbour Latchi. Car hire is essential, but for several days each holiday we leave the vehicle unused, preferring quiet walks in the hills or down to the sleepy village, or taking it easy in beautiful surroundings.
This is the perfect away-from-it-all holiday, especially with the owners Barbara and Demitris on hand with their local knowledge or for a friendly chat.

Cannot have asked for a better location and Villa, we enjoyed our stay at Barbara’s and Dimitris’s. The owners were real warm wonderful people.
Their place was so relaxing in such an idyllic location; the views were beyond our expectations. Miliou is a little quite village up in the hills of Pafos, the villa overlooks fields of olive's, citrus trees, and many more as well as the wonderful hills and Troodos mountains.
The surrounded gardens are beautifully landscaped.
We will miss Galinia Villa, but will look forward to return one day.
Galinia 1 in Miliou
A beautiful location near a picturesque village run by warm and welcoming hosts.The hosts were at the villa in 5 minutes to resolve a minor problem, they were obviously prepared to go the extra mile to ensure our stay was comfortable.A car is essential to enjoy the opportunities offered by this region.The Taverna in Miliou was also warm and welcoming and the food provided was good. We would be more than happy to return to the villa's offered by Barbara and Demetris.
Perfection, peace and tranquility
I don't want to write this review as we have found the perfect holiday for us and wants to keep it to ourselves! We have been to the Galinia and Orama villas and don't intend holidaying anywhere else.
Beautifully located above the small village of Miliou with stunning views to Trudos mountains, the villas are private with all home comforts, including your own pool. Set in lemon and orange groves, they are Very clean and well maintained, you could quite easily spend all your time at the villa.
Miliou is a lovely, small village with a taverna and coffee bar in the square, serving traditional food and drink, a lovely place to pass evenings with the locals without the hustle and hassle of resorts.
The biggest positive is Demetris and Barbara, the owners. Their aim is to make your stay as pleasant as possible, nothing is too much trouble for them, they are genuine, friendly people who we hope to meet year after year. Efaristo, Danke.
