Villa in Peyia, Nr. Coral Bay, Paphos, Cyprus - Peaceful Location with Stunning Views, 10 Minutes Drive to Beach or Peyia Village
About Joseph Arden
Hi, I am a semi-retired property developer, local magistrate and volunteer adviser for the Citizens Advice Bureau. We have owned Villa Callista from when it was built - my partner and I played a big part in design and construction. We are very happy with the finished product and hope that you will be too!
Joseph Arden purchased this Villa in 2010
Why Joseph Arden chose Peyia
Villa Callista is in the perfect location - between Peyia Village and Coral Bay - not too close to the hustle and bustle, but near enough for easy access. The views are stunning - the sunsets are amazing!
What makes this Villa unique
The location is superb, Villa Callista is completed to a very high standard and the 10m x 5m pool is excellent. We provide Wi-Fi, Internet TV (substantial choice of UK programmes and films) and Air-conditioning at no extra cost. We hope you enjoy your stay!

Villa Callista is a beautiful villa. The property is well maintained with excellent facilities and in a very quiet location in Peyia overlooking Coral Bay / Seacaves from the hilltops with only one neighbouring property (empty while we were there) and visiting goats on several mornings which was an enjoyable watch as they meandered past.
There were 5 adults and 1 toddler in our party staying in the villa and we all had a fabulous time. The pool is much bigger than you would normally expect to find at a villa, but is the same depth all over so perfectly safe for the non-swimmers in our party. Our GrandDaughter (aged 2) had no problem in getting into the pool using the roman steps at the end which were fantastic for her as she loved playing on them with her bucket and watering can. Although she cannot swim yet, she had a lifejacket to wear in the pool which gave her so much confidence and she was soon jumping in and out.
A welcome pack with bread / milk / tea / coffee / beer/ water etc had been left for us on arrival which was a lovely touch and meant we could unpack fully without having to rush out to the supermarket to make a drink.
We cannot fault the villa in anyway, we had a few issues during our stay, but James was on hand straight away and these were dealt with promptly. We would have no hesitation in recommending Villa Callista as we have been holiday in this area of Cyprus for pretty much the last 10 years and this is the only property we have ever stayed in that we would definitely wish to return to.
Many thanks for the use of your beautiful home.
Mandy & Paul Edmonds and family
Great villa with great views
If you want a quiet holiday this is the place to come
You can walk into Peyia it takes only 20mins plenty cafes and bars shops etc if your planing to go further a car is essential
Fabulous Villa with incredible 180° seaview and great pool
We - two families with two 10-year-old children - spent wonderful 10 days in late October in and around Villa Callista and enjoyed every single day.
The villa is in immaculate conditon offering everything you would need for great holidays. The beds are comfortable, bathrooms, kitchen and everything else is clean and tidy and well equipped with enough space for everyone and everything. All the aplliances work properly and are well maintained.
The most memorable and outstanding features surely are the beautiful (at least) 180° seaviews and most certainly the large 10 x 5 m overflow pool. The pool heating in combination with the brand new pool cover is excellent and kept the water at wonderful 29 °C which was a real joy and definetely worth the extra charge.
The plot is located in a very quite area at the western edge of Peyia with just two more inhabited villas near Villa Callista. The garden offers plenty of sunloungers and more then enough garden furniture for outside meals. We offen used the charcoal BBQ in the evenings and enjoyed the one or the other Sundowner on the terrace.
The communication with the owner Joe was very nice and the provided informations like the directions etc. were very helpful and accurate. A very warm thank you also goes to the property manager James who is 100% reliable and pleasant. We appreciated the welcome pack as well as the late check out very much.
We can truly recommend Villa Callista and hope to return some day.
Had a wonderful week here with our two teenagers. We felt very looked after right from the start, Joe emailed arrival info and the directions to the villa were spot on (even arriving in the dark). Arrived to a welcome pack of staples, which tided us over until we went shopping. You do need a car to make the most of the amazing location which is about a 10 min drive to the coast. Villa had everything we needed, very well equipped for cooking etc
The views from the villa are incredible, esp from the front bedrooms. Lovely clean pool, and plenty of chairs and sun loungers around for relaxing. The BBQ was great fun.
Must give a special mention to James, the maintenance chap, he looked after us fantastically, we had to call him to look at the pool and he was there almost immediately, and even offered to take our rubbish away for us. The only 'disturbance' all week was a herd of goats walking past ringing their bells.
To summarise, gorgeous, clean, well equipped villa. Amazing views and sunsets in a v tranquil setting. Didn't want to leave!
Thank you for a fab holiday!
We've just returned from a fantastic two week holiday in Villa Callista, its a superb well sized modern air conditioned property with terrific views across the fields to the sea, marvellous when eating your breakfast on the patio. James from the local management team is full of good information (and stories of his adventures :-) ) and couldn't be more helpful. The entertainment system was mastered by the children in about 5 mins and with box sets and the latest films was a good distraction to keep them out of the midday sun and keep them (and us) entertained in the late evening.
A car however is essential, the nearest village, Peyia, is 2km away, up and down small winding roads, but contact the owner for a good deal on local car hire, which will also give you the opportunity to explore further afield.
If you enjoy peace and quiet, with the only sounds in the warm sunshine, being the gentle flow of swimming pool water and the occasional clanging of goat bells then this is definitely for you... and for us we cant wait to go back next year.
Very happy to receive this review. Our guest describes the location well and we are happy that the efforts of our management team were appreciated. Proof of the pudding is that the reviewer has already booked for next year!
Family holiday get together.,
We had a fabulous holiday at the stunning villa callista, there were three couples and we found the villa very spacious inside and outside so you didn't feel on top of one another. The property was very clean and maintained to a very high standard. Great bbq and patio areas and the pool is divine. We had a lovely relaxing holiday as it was so peaceful with fabulous views. You do need a car but it doesn't take long to get to the nearest village or the variety of restaurants there is to choose from. We tried to find fault but we couldn't and would definitely go again, cant wait.
