Overview

About the property

Villa in Kissonerga, Nr. Coral Bay, Paphos, Cyprus - Peaceful Location, 15 Minutes Walk To The Beach

Villa Tala View lies in a beautiful setting in the small sleepy village of Kissonerga, amid lemon groves and banana plantations. Our three bedroom link detached villa, is set in landscaped gardens with a large 8 x 4m private swimming pool with Roman Steps, giving the feel of paradise. Beyond are the fantastic views of the Hills of Tala. This superb holiday accommodation contains every convenience for a comfortable and memorable holiday. Air-con, ceiling fans and fly-screens are provided. Shutters all around have been installed recently (January 2013) all designed to keep you nice and cool when inside. A complimentary welcome pack will greet you on arrival. Every window (June 2013) has a fly screen including bathrooms and en-suite, now the refreshing breezes can circulate inside and the horrible little whatsits will have to stay outside.

A recently purchased car is now available (13/01/2017) to enable guests to explore this fantastic country, photos of our Nissan Xtrail are available. A car is not essential for our property but is recommended.

Prices for the car range from £25- £40 per day dependant on season, payment could be made with final payment for villa 3 weeks before your holiday, this price also includes airport transfers, which avoids trying to find villa initially, often in the dark. There are no hidden extras with the car, it is fully comprehensively insured and will come with a full tank of petrol. It is ideal to cope with the roads in Cyprus, especially if you are planning off road, to maybe Lara Bay to see the Turtles or Akamas

You will picked up from the airport, and taken to the villa, where the car will be waiting for you.

About Jill Dagha

Joe, my partner and I live and work in England. At the moment we only holiday in Cyprus, escaping from the pressures of work relaxing with all of our new found friends, in such a beautiful historic country. It has been less than 10 years ago that Joe and I first visited Cyprus, we fell in love with it immediately and dreamt of buying a house in readiness for our retirement 15 years hence. We went home having had an amazing holiday, but after a cooling off period of four months, we returned to fulfil our dream.

Jill Dagha purchased this villa in 2009

Why Jill Dagha chose Coral Bay Area

We bought the villa off plan, the location was so important, we wanted to be a part of a village, but not far from the sea or the town. Kissonerga was perfect, we are literally 5 minutes walk from the village which has all the amenities that we need, including 2 great restaurants, a 15 minute relaxed stroll brings us to a stunning beach close to another outstanding restaurant.

5 minutes by car, you will find yourself at the very popular Coral Bay, 15 minutes drive in the opposite direction will find yourself at the picturesque Harbour in Paphos, surrounded by brightly painted fishing boats, and private yachts and all dominated by The Fort and the Mosaics and all only an hours drive to the Mountains of Troodos.

What makes this villa unique

We took delivery of our villa in May eight years ago, and very soon discovered not only how much Cyprus and Paphos in particular had to offer, but also just how wonderful it was. To relax in the evenings alongside the pool, a glass of wine, soft music and succulent food from our barbecue, or to walk up the hill to the next village which is Tala, to sit in the Village Square and watch the world go by. It really is a taste of paradise

Guestbook comments from the owner

Nicola and Peter 29/5-5/6/13

FANTASTIC. The prompt, friendly and professional communication from the owners throughout was very reassuring.The villa was spotless and finished to a very high specification with everything you could need for a week away. It is set in a quiet residential cul-de-sac and only a ten minute walk in to the village where we found everything we needed and the locals were very friendly.As the weather was very hot the private pool was welcoming and the outside area is an ideal place for sunbathing, relaxing and having a barbecue, and taking in the views from the balconies was a joy. We spent a lot of time there and were very happy indeed with our choice, and with so many local places to eat and only 15 minutes drive to the Harbour it was a great location giving us the privacy we wanted. I honestly could not think of anything I would change, it was a wonderful place and we will definitely book to stay here again and highly recommend the villa. Thanks Jill & Joe.

A gorgeous home and fantastic holiday base.

  • 5 of 5

A gorgeous house with all you could possibly hope to find in a long term home let alone a holiday rental. Everything beautifully kept and all mod cons. Can't express how thrilled we were to find out that we had rented such a perfect place. As mentioned by others before the welcome pack of essentials was left for us (and much appreciated!).

The villa is an excellent base for exploring Cyprus. Jill's directions to drive to the house were fabulous and easy to follow from the airport. After first driving there finding our way back from anywhere on the island was very straightforward and always a welcome pleasure to return. Such a quiet street with lovely neighbours and that ever refreshing pool!

The villa is well located for all amenities as long as you have a hire car. There is a great supermarket and a fabulous bakery 4min drive away and you pass these every time you come 'home' so incredibly convenient.

Pool and outdoor area ideal with plenty of furniture and plants. Front porch lovely for pot of tea in the morning cool and plenty of shade out back in the afternoon. There is a fabulous awning over the outdoor dining area. The only thing that we could wish for that wasn't there would be a grassy play area for the kids but given the weather in Cyprus it's quite understandable not to have a lawn! There's a lovely park just down the road which is full of local children in the evening and the street itself is such a quiet cul-de-sac that kids can ride bikes or kick a ball happily.

For others with children I would recommend heading to the hotel at the bottom of the road to use their waterpark as only €10 for the day and you can come and go as you please which meant we were able to head back 'home' for lunch and to hide from the midday sun before more splashtastic fun in the afternoon - much better for our young family than the main Paphos waterpark.

2 adults and 2 children had a glorious time here.

Dealing with Jill and Joe was a pleasure from the outset and everything was always promptly and politely dealt with.

We can't wait to return!

Another amazing expeience

  • 5 of 5

Well this is our third visit to Jill's Villa, we have been there at Christmastime for the last two years, unfortunately we were unable to do Christmas this year, we came early in January instead.

This villa never ceases to amaze us, jill must always be looking of ways to care for and update her house, we were greeted this time with a small kitchen alteration which surprisingly had a remarkable effect, even though the original work space seemed quite perfect. There were also new plants and trees in the garden and a change of decor in the lounge. We cannot speak highly enough of this Villa and know that we shall be back there again quite soon.

Even in January the temperatures were fabulous, most of our two week visit during the day temperatures were around 18, although quite a lot colder at night. The worst day was the day that we were leaving, it was much cooler and we had some rain.

We visited many places that were quite local in relationship to the villa, Avakas Gorge, Lara Bay, and the Akamas Peninsula, our favourite though was Aphrodites Water Falls close to Tala the next village up from Kissonerga.

Thank you Jill again for your cooperation throughout and will be in touch again in readiness for our next experience at 'Tala View'

Beautiful villa ,just as the photo's

  • 5 of 5

A lovely villa really home from home.

It was clean and just as described , the welcome pack gave you a chance to have a drink etc on arrival.

The weather was great 20c in the shade and 30c in the sunshine. There were five of us including a 2 year old it was lovely to have meals round the pool and no need to get up early to reserve your sun lounger here there was plenty to go around.

We had a hire car which we thought was best for getting around and to and from the airport.

The owner had put us in touch with the car hire people which was helpful along with all the other information provided.

The manager also helped us while we where in cyprus with her local knowledge.

I would strong recommend this villa as you have the best of both worlds with the rural area with local amenities but paphos isn't far away .

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

I can only agree with all the previous reviews. Villa was amazing, neighbours friendly, one who even helped us jump start our car when we left the lights on overnight! Colin who supplied the car was friendly and helpful telling us the nicest places to visit and how to get to them. I do think a car is necessary unless you are keen walkers. We stayed in October and the weather was hot, so even the 10 minute walk into the village was exhausting especially returning with bags of shopping.

Jill kept in touch from day 1 of booking the holiday right through to our return.

The only other thing worth mentioning is at this time of year the sun has gone from the pool by 2 pm, again this is where a car comes in handy as a 5 minute drive took us the the beach to continue our tanning!

I would recommend the villa to everyone, real home from home and a bit more.

Ticked all the boxes

  • 5 of 5

This Villa was very well appointed and spotlessly clean.

We didn't use the air con as we preferred to have the windows open with the fitted flyscreens across and the ceiling fans on. This kept us cool even at 30C outside.

We stayed for one week and felt really at home with enough outdoor furniture and comfy couches inside. Bedrooms could be blacked out with shutters and blinds making for a good night's sleep on the comfy beds.

Ideally you need a car to get around but we did catch a bus to Paphos and coral bay from by the Atlantic hotel a couple of times although it's quite a steep walk up hill on the way back.

Julie's bar is nearest in kissonerga and food is very good and reasonable, chicken souvlaki 6 euros.

There are permanent residents either side of the villa who we found friendly without being intrusive.

All in all a lovely well appointed Villa with lots of sunshine round the pool with awning and nice inside for when it gets too much.

Beautiful, comfortable villa

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in and around Coral bay on several occasions. We were not disappointed with the quality of this villa. We had a very enjoyable 2 weeks holiday at Tala View, weather in September was just as good as the accommodation found at this villa. This villa is well situated for a short walk into kissonerga, where we found Tweedies and Julie's 2 eateries which served food to a good standard, with very friendly staff, would recommend both. There is also a high standard of facilities within the villa if you prefer to eat in, either preparing a meal in the high quality kitchen, or on the BQ found on the decking area in the garden. You will find all you will need for supplies at Phillopos supermarket ( short drive away At Coral Bay). if you want a high quality villa in the Coral Bay Area, then I cannot recommend this villa highly enough.

The Ambulance will take you to either the General Hospital in Paphos or the nearest Private Medical Hospital dependant on your individual Holiday Insurance. We do hope that no-one has to take advantage of this service, but it is better to be safe than sorry and comes at no extra cost to yourself.
