About the property

Argaka, Cyprus - Only 5 Minutes Walk To Beach And Taverna

This detached, modern two bedroom, two bathroom, single-storey villa has a private pool and views of sea and hills. This is our family home and so is homely and fully equipped. Modern kitchen, separate lounge and dining area. Five minute walk from a sandy beach and taverna, the villa is in a small peaceful development on the edge of Argaka, along the coast from the town of Polis with its many shops and restaurants located around a lively square. The villa is an excellent base for walking in the forests, viewing the wildlife in the Argaka hills, swimming in the sea or pool, or just relaxing & enjoying the sunsets in the peaceful private Mediterranean garden with citrus, avocado and olive trees. The villa is newly furnished with good quality oak furniture, leather sofas and comfortable beds. Stunning sunsets over the sea can be enjoyed from the veranda with its Syrian stone balustrade. The rear terrace with its citrus trees is ideal for al-fresco breakfasts. Wifi internet. Air conditioning.

Lovely home in a quiet village

  • 5 of 5

We were taken aback when we arrived in this villa. So much thought put into making your stay as comfortable as possible. A lovely development, beautiful gardens, great size pool and the villa was very well furnished. Argaka was perfect for us: away from the madding crowds, yet with lovely restaurants and supermarkets nearby. Our only suggestion would be to remove the lamp from the fan ceiling in the main bedroom as its stays on if running on high speed.

We would definetly go back again!

Beautiful, Quiet Coastal Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This isn't a holiday party place, which is just what we wanted. For our first visit to Cyprus this villa was the perfect home base. Close to beautiful seaside restaurants and clubs but not too close. If we were to buy a vacation home in Cyprus it would be just like this and in a neighborhood like this. Modern, spacious and well maintained..
