Villa in Mazotos, Larnaca, Cyprus - Peaceful Location Five Minutes Drive To The Beach Ten Minutes Walk To The Village
About STEPHEN BARNES
Carol and I are both semi retired. Carol runs a dog grooming business from home and I continue, part time, as company director we sold our family medical supplies company a few years ago, having run it for twenty two years. We love the Greek relaxed way of life and spent the majority of our family holidays on numerous Greek Islands with our two children. When we found ourselves in a position to purchase a second home Cyprus was a natural choice. The weather is lovely and there is something to do all year round, including skiing in the Trodos. Mountains from January to March. Most people come to Cyprus for the sun so our Villa is only booked by our guest during the main summer months. That leaves us I plenty of time to enjoy our villa in Cyprus (four months last year).
STEPHEN BARNES purchased this Villa in 2004
Why STEPHEN BARNES chose Mazotos
The Villa that we own is not what we came to Cyprus to purchase! We originally took a pragmatic view . The Villa was to provide a retirement income. We came to Cyprus looking for a Villa in a main resort. After two days of viewing small identical houses crowded together over looked on all sides we decided that was not for us. We stumbled upon Mazatos, We had lunch at the Camel Park where we met the owner who was also a builder. He had started a small development in the village. We drove to the site on a warm sunny day past past golden fields overlooking the blue sea (in April ), through the small village and into an Olive Grove to the plot where our Villa now stands. We were sold,the area the view, the feel .Uncharacteristically we paid a deposit there and then with no regrets.
What makes this Villa unique
If you are looking for an away from it all holiday ,Mazatos is ideal. The pool area is not overlooked and the view to the rear of the property still takes me by surprise. The lack of light pollution and how quiet it is at night makes an evening around the barbecue peaceful and relaxing. The villa in Mazatos is also our home. We have guest a few weeks a year. We hope you enjoy your time there as much as we do.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
This property was just what we were looking for, quiet area, clean and spacious accommodation with a pool. Communication with the owner was very good. We are already considering returning next year!
A wonderful relaxing week in a fabulous Villa
My two friends and I have just returned from a wonderful week in Villa Elias Thea. The Villa itself is a wonderful quiet oasis which we had to drag ourselves away from in the morning! It is very well equipped, beautifully laid out and in a very quiet area on the edge of the village of Mazatos. The small "breakfast" terrace was a lovely start to the day, followed by a relaxing morning by the lovely pool and beautifully kept garden areas.
We didn't venture far, but found some wonderful places to visit each day: the lace and silver jewellery at Lefkara, archaeological parks at Paphos and Kourion and closer to home the village of Kiti and the Hala Sultan Tekke on the Salt Lake by Larnaca Airport. We also caught the bus into Larnaca one day, the bus stop is on the main road, just a short walk away.
There is a very good shop in the village at the square where we got fresh vegetables and fruit every day as well as all our other supplies. Everyone was very friendly and helpful and even though we were early in the season, the weather was wonderfully warm.
Stephen is a great host and everything is well prepared and covered in a very concise document received before we left home. We would certainly recommend this Villa to anyone considering a quiet, relaxing holiday and we all hope to revisit some time in the future.
great villa lots of little extras , quiet , just what we needed to unwind.
Perfect relaxing stay
Lovely spacious villa. Five of us stayed here and there was plenty of room for all of us. The pool was great and Keith kept it and surrounding area very clean. We had a couple of great BBQs buying steak from the butchers Steve recommended, really good quality at a very good price. The local supermarket has most of what you might need at reasonable prices. We ate at the local tavern a few times, nice food good sized portions. Would strongly recommend staying here, it's a lovely peaceful area. The weather was very hot for the entire 2 weeks we were there
Thank you for taking time to review our villa. Really pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay and the recommended places to visit/eat/shop/etc was of help. The best T bone steak I have ever eaten in my life came from that butcher! Steve
Very spacious, great views & a balcony for every room
Four of us stayed here for a week. Plenty of space, comfortable, brilliant BBQ one night and the pool was amazing!
Thank you for taking time to review our villa. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay. BBQ nights in Cyprus are still the best times for us. Even after fourteen years I still can't get over how dark and silent Mazatos is at night.
Fantastic villa and location
Great place to relax would definitely go back and stay there, Stephen and Carol are so helpful the villa is in a lovely location and the pool was fantastic. I would recommend the villa to anyone who wants a quite and relaxing holiday, even my 16 year old son enjoyed it.

The camel park attraction is five minutes drive and is ideal for families with children. Th main town, Larnaca, is fifteen minutes by car.

Mazatos is a working farm village with a relaxed atmosphere. Many who come to our Villa to escape the pressures of modern living hardly travel more than a ten miles radius, just using the local beach and restaurants. Mazatos has been described as being in the middle of nowhere and the centre of everywhere. Its location means that you can either enjoy the rural setting and local beach or within an hours drive cover most of the Island with all the beautiful beaches, historical attractions and lively resorts.
