Very Private Villa.Spectacular Sea/Sunset Views 25mins from Paphos

Bedrooms 4
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Luxury, total privacy, sea views, heated pool, UK tv, Sky, WiFi, outside bar

Astéri is a unique, completely private, and a very special place, with the most amazing and dramatic views all the way around and down to the sea and the Akamas Peninsular and Blue Lagoon - it will truly take your breath away! Check our reviews.

Just a 25 min drive from Paphos, it feels like a different world!

Astéri is a wonderful 4/5 bedroom villa (1 bedroom/bathroom is normally closed off for 8 persons or less) Although quite large it is suitable for smaller parties too, and even couples will find it a wonderful escape with a magical feel all of its own.

Perched above the delightful village of Steni, Astéri enjoys complete privacy and is not overlooked in any way - however it is not isolated at all - being just a minute hop down to the village and the lovely local cafe's there, and then just a few minutes drive to Polis Old Town and Latchi Marina with its contemporary bars and restaurants overlooking the yachts, and miles of great beaches.

Paphos is just a 25 minute drive away, and the airport about 40 mins. Larrnaca airport is a one and a half hour drive.

The property is ranch-style, all on one level, with two bedrooms/bathrooms in one wing, and two/three bedrooms/bathrooms in an opposite wing, with the living areas in the middle. This allows a good degree of privacy for families or if sharing.

Please note - there is a 5th bedroom and bathroom which can be opened up on request for larger parties. (extra fee applies, which is calculated when you put in the number of your party when you send an enquiry) Otherwise the property remains as four bedrooms/four bathrooms.

Throw open the patio doors on your first morning, and you will find the intoxicating aroma of jasmine & the truly amazing all around views over the mountains, villages and citrus groves down to the sea quite overwhelming. In the evenings the sunsets over the sea and Akamas Peninsular will truly amaze you - and after dark there is some star show!

Astéri offers luxurious and hugely spacious outdoor living with a wonderful shaded lounge area with sofas, a 50" flat screen for outdoor evening movies, a 10 x 5 meter pool (heated if required for additional charge- please ask for details), and a large dining area within a huge wooden pergola, alongside which is a large stone BBQ kitchen.

Plus we now have a wonderful outside cocktail bar with fridge and music system - here you can perch on a stool, cocktail in hand, and watch the sun set dramatically over the hills and Akamas Peninsula - just magical!

Inside the villa is cool and luxurious with good quality furnishings and works of art, much more of a home than a holiday house. There is a 50" tv in the lounge with satellite channels and access to all live UK tv channels plus all Sky movies, and sports channels in HD, there is also a DVD player (plus library). There is a bluetooth/stereo dock also.

We have good speed unlimited wifi throughout the villa (and works outside too inc the bar).

There is a good 4g mobile phone signal.

There is central heating (extra cost) and a real fire for the cooler evenings, plus pool heating if required (extra cost).

Astéri really is unique, and one of a kind, with a position and views that are hard, if not impossible, to beat. It is not your average holiday rental at all. It will be our permanent home one day, but in the meantime we are happy to share it with careful guests.

We can organize a hire car for you, which includes a driver to take you to the villa on arrival which makes for a much more relaxing way to arrive, especially if at night - all this is included in the normal hire cost - a service unique to us as we use our local car hire firm a lot.

There is no set arrival/departure day, so we are quite flexible. Minimum stay is seven days, and any number of nights over this. Please note this property does not accept younger all same sex groups.

Why Graham James chose Papho District

Astéri is our favourite and we hope to live here one day soon. It is so private and exclusive, and yet not miles from anywhere - it really is the best of both worlds. Everyone who stays loves it.

What makes this villa unique

Privacy, space, exclusivity, views that will take your breath away! Heated pool if required. Set on the outskirts of an idyllic village just 8 minutes drive to the coast.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a 2 week stay at this delightful villa, the views were amazing, we ate at the 2 taverns in Steni a few times lovely food and very reasonable prices. Would definitely return. Graham was very helpful when we had any problems (which wasn’t often).

Fantastic villa and great views

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived at around 21:30 it was already dark however the lights were lit in the garden and the house and even the radio was playing. So a warm welcome together with the wine, cheese and cracker which we could order. The villa completely lived up to our expectations. In real it is even better than on the photos. The garden is beautiful and huge and you never get bored with the almost 360 degrees view you have. We were with a party of 4 and though the house is big it is perfectly fit for 2 couples. You have a lot of privacy in the house and outside. No neighbours at all ! The bar in the garden is also much fun. We never stay at home for dinner when we go on holiday in Greece but this time we used the BBQ next to the outside bar (very cosy !) even 5 times in 14 days. We had a few issues with the water supply however either Carrie of Graham always responded promptly and made sure it was fixed a.s.a.p. The whole atmosphere in and around the house is very pleasant so I would definately recommend the villa and we will for sure be back!

Last but not least 2 of our favorite restaurants. "Nostos" in Latchi (almost at the end of Latchi on your right hand side). Very friendly host and delicious food. And also Patradaki in Kathika is very very good. It is on the main road. Also very friendly personel and amazingly good food!

A luxury and very private Villa

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic week in this Villa (2nd holiday this year) - have done Villas in Cyprus for a good few years now and this is one of the best - everything is accurate as stated on the Website and whilst extremely private is located close to Polis where you can get everything you need and socialise - would recommend without hesitation and would certainly return if available in the future.

There are lovely sandy and shingle beaches with beach bars and waterside restaurants overlooking the new marina to the east of Latsi, just 8-10 minutes drive away. Speed and sailing boats can be hired here and also snorkelling and Padi diving arranged. There are long sandy beaches with sun loungers. Just a short walk from the villa you will find Neromylos Coffee Shop, the coolest coffee shop in Cyprus, selling iced frappé coffee, cold beer, genuine Cypriot cuisine and desserts to die for!


Paphos airport approx 45 minutes drive. Larnaca airport approx 1 hour 40 mins. Car hire is recommended. We can arrange this locally, and they will pick you up from the airport and take you to the villa (and vice versa on departure) All included in the car hire price! This is great if you arrive to Cyprus after dark and do not want to drive yourself. Although we provide good directions, so it is not too difficult to drive yourself.

Persterona 2 minutes drive

Polis - 8 minute drive

Further Details:

Steni is an unspoilt and very charming little Cypriot village which has a wonderful and very interesting museum with one of the best laid out and fascinating displays of Cypriot life anywhere on the island. It also has a great cafe run by the lovely Dawn & Mathew.

There are three very well stocked shops, minimarkets and fruit markets within a few minutes drive from Asteri.

The relaxed and atmospheric Old Town of Polis is around a 8 minute drive. There are winding streets, small interesting shops and little taverns in the old town. The newer part of Polis has some larger supermarkets and bars, some showing sport, restaurants, banks, fruit markets and lots of shops selling tourist items and daily wares. The Baths of Aphrodite are 11km west of Polis and around a 10 minute drive. Surrounded by fig trees and the sound of running water, it is a nice spot to spend an hours or so away from the heat.

There is horse riding available near to the villa, trekking through the mountains in nearby Lysos is a perfect way to get close to nature and take in the magnificent views. There is also a watersports centre in Latsi. Tylliria is an untouched, tranquil forested territory with a few beaches. The drive there is very scenic. Head for Pomos which is a lush area with olive trees, citrus groves and vines.
