About the property

Villa in Peyia, Coral Bay Area, Paphos, Cyprus - Peaceful Location, 5 Mins Drive To Coral Bay Blue Flag Beach

Villa Katerina is a luxury 3 bedroom villa with a large private pool, located in the picturesque village of Peyia. It is in a quiet location at the top of a cul de sac with 4 other villas. There is a field of carob trees backing on to the villa where goats can sometimes be seen.

Villa Katerina has 3 spacious bedrooms all with air conditioning (small extra charge) and ceiling fans. Upstairs is a double bedroom opening onto a large balcony with sunbeds and parasol overlooking the pool and a twin room overlooking the carob field. There is also a bathroom with shower/ bath.

Downstairs is another spacious double bedroom with its own bathroom giving greater privacy for couples sharing or anybody less abled. The living area is open plan with a large lounge/ dining area overlooking the pool and ample sun terracing. There are 3 suede sofas, dining table for 6, TV with Internet channels including the main English TV along with films etc & a selection of DVDs, Music system and a selection of books. Free internet.

The kitchen is very well equipped. A range of units with granite work surfaces, oven, hob, large fridge/ freezer, washing machine, microwave, toaster, kettle, iron & board, water cooler and everything you need to cook if you wish.

Outside is the star attraction, a larger than average deep pool. 10x5m. Roman steps into the shallow end and a ladder at the deep end. There is ample sun terracing with sunbeds & parasol along with a large pergola for shade during the midday sun. There is also an undercover patio area in which is a patio table and chairs seating 6 people. Perfect for alfresco dining. There is a BBQ at the rear of the villa.

We are perfectly situated to explore much of the surrounding area.

The famous Coral Bay resort is 2km away and the town of Paphos is just a 15 minutes drive as is Kato Paphos with its harbour and famous mosaics.

The traditional Cypriot village of Peyia with its tavernas, supermarkets, bakery, delicatessen, fruit market and butchers are within walking distance.

Coral Bay has some of the best blue flag beaches in Cyprus where you can swim in the safe shallow clear water. Here you will also find numerous restaurants and bars.

Just along the coast is the unspoilt Akamas nature reserve with miles of deserted beaches where turtles come to lay their eggs. We recommend a 4x4 to visit the Akamas.

There are many small beaches along the coast towards the Akamas where you can snorkel in the clear blue water or walk along the rugged coastline taking in the spectacular views, eat at some of the famous restaurants including the Last Casle ( Viklaris) and Oniros by the Sea overlooking the ship wreck.

We are also ideally situated to visit the Troodos mountains with beautiful monasteries, Tombs of the Kings, Polis, Lastsi and Aphrodites Birthplace.

Take a boat out to the Blue Lagoon for a memorable day out.

We can arrange car hire from a local company at very competitive rates along with taxi transfers to get your holiday off to a relaxing start.

Villa Katerina is well equipped with everything you need for a wonderful holiday.

About Dexter & Karen Akroyd

Hi, we are Dexter & Karen & we currently live in Bristol (UK). We have been married for 35 years and have 2 grown up children, one of each but no grandchildren yet. We enjoy good food and wine, sailing, painting and relaxing holidays!

Dexter & Karen Akroyd purchased this villa in 2006

Why Dexter & Karen Akroyd chose Peyia

We first had a holiday in this beautiful villa when it belonged to friends. We just fell in love with the place. Peyia is a wonderful, traditional village with good restaurants and shops and a pretty village square. The villa is peaceful, away from the hustle and bustle but within a short distance of Coral Bay. We have a carob field to the rear and the local farmer often brings his goats to feed. The local people are very friendly and you always feel safe with none of the hassle often experienced in foreign holiday resorts. When we returned to the UK after our holiday, we discovered our friends were going to sell the property as they were having another villa built just a short distance away. The rest is history.

What makes this villa unique

Villa Katerina is a 10 minute walk into Peyia village, 5 minutes drive to Coral Bays beautiful beaches and is perfectly situated for exploring the Akamas as well as Tombs of the Kings, Troodos, Mosaics and much more. We have a larger than average deep pool with extensive sun terraces and also an under cover area to get some shade from the midday sun. Villa Katerina has been furnished to a very high standard. It was not originally intended for rental, it has so much more than you would expect from a holiday let. We hope to move out to Cyprus when we retire and so this is home from home. We try to visit twice a year to keep the villa well maintained. Every time we go out we find it harder & harder to return to the UK. We selectively let the villa to help with the running costs and also to allow guests to experience our little corner of paradise.

Great holiday

  • 5 of 5

Lovely villa - even better than the pictures suggest. Much bigger than we realised so plenty of space for 4 adults. Pool was lovely and the villa is in a nice quiet area. It's about a 15 minute walk to the local village which has a handful of restaurants which we ate at a couple of times. Would suggest carhire is needed which we then used to visit coral bay, the troodos mountains, the harbour at polis and latchi, paphos town and a number of beaches, bars and restaurants.

Owners were brilliant and organised transfers and car hire for us. Will definitely be back - most relaxing holiday we've had in a long time!

Cyprus holiday 2017

  • 5 of 5

The property listing was accurate, the Villa is well maintained and clean, great layout for our family group of 4 Adults and 1 child. The owners kept us well informed and organised transport from and to the airport and a car for the week. It is ideally placed for the beaches of Coral Bay and the typical Cypriot restaurants in Peyia. The village is within walking distance with a supermarket, restaurant and pub. The Villa is situated in a residential area with other properties in close proximity to each other. I would recommend this property to a friend or relative.

Owner's Response: Thank you for writing a review. We like to arrange car hire and taxis for guests as it makes things run smoothly. The local car hire company we use is very reliable and the taxi drivers know where the villa is located, especially good in the dark! We have noticed there are now a good number of local restaurants in the village within walking distance which means being able to have a drink and not worrying about having to drive to Coral Bay. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at Villa Katerina.

Perfect villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 weeks, this was our 2nd stay at this beautiful villa.

As before, everything was perfect.

Beautifully clean and tidy, a real home from home, everything you could want and more.

Karen, the owner was so helpful with organising a hire car and being accommodating with change of dates.

Overall, couldn't have asked for more.

ps Jackie who comes to see you on your visit was very helpful, she went and bought a new fan when ours broke.

The property was well equipped, had good size rooms and a great pool.

  • 4 of 5

The property was well presented and had everything you would need for a great stay. The open planned kitchen, dinning and lounge area is a great space, spacious and comfortable. There is English television via the internet and a good selection of DVD's, CD's and reading books. The bedrooms are spacious with good wardrobe space. The bathrooms are a good size and will meet all staying at the property's needs. The outside space and pool area is great - the pool itself is a great size.
