About Janet Douglas
My name is Janet and I live in Edinburgh, Scotland. My husband part owns the Villas with his Business partner and I have the fabulous job of ensuring the properties Villa Anassa ref 8124348 and Villa Aphrodite ref 8832293 are available as holiday rentals. I have personally made each property individual with different interiors and furnishings making them modern but homely and comfortable. Villa Anassa and Villa Aphrodite Ref 8832293 are situated in the fabulous Amorosa development by the Mediterranean. Our families have been coming to the Island of Cyprus for 15 years, our children have grown up holidaying in the properties and have many fantastic memories of the Beach, eating out in local restaurants, the Akamas Park and snorkelling in the Blue Lagoon. A perfect location for a family holiday.
Janet Douglas purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Janet Douglas chose Neo Chorio
The attraction to this area is the positioning of the property to one of the best beaches in Cyprus. From the Villa it is 50 metres walk to Aphrodite Beach and the local Beach bar serving great Seafood and local beer. Easy access allows us to move between the swimming pool and the beach. Sun beds and umbrellas are available April to October with the presence of a lifeguard which puts our mind at ease when the children are swimming. Water sports are also available. The sea is crystal clear for swimming and snorkelling. We can take a boat out from Latchi Marina and drive a short distance along the coast to the blue lagoon where we anchor, picnic and snorkel with a fabulous view of the Akamas peninsula. The bay is beautiful with the Anassa Hotel perched on its own, neighbouring our properties. We have many favourite restaurants in the area from fine dining in the hotels to local Beach cafes and marina restaurants which are dotted along the coast line of Latchi . Yialos being one of the cheapest and our favourite on the beach. We can walk along the beach to the Anassa Hotel anytime of day and have a drink in the cocktail bar at Sunset or choose to stay at the Villa on the terrace and look at the amazing views while the Sun goes down. For a small fee there is access to the gym facilities and treatments available at the Spa.The local friendly taxi company Nissos and the local bus service gets us around without a car. Papantoniou is the large Supermarket in Polis which has everything food, flip flops and inflatables. Polis is the next door town where you can eat and experience Cypriot culture and dancing on a Friday evening. A 45 min drive takes you to Paphos Shopping Mall which is perfect when it gets too hot.
What makes this Villa unique
The properties are beautifully designed and in an amazing location. With their individual pools and gardens it is very private. I love the fact that it is very safe for families with young children, but equally teenagers who want to go off to the beach on their own, they can have that independence. We also have the facility of a shared tennis court and our estate is gated purely to stop cars coming in and out or parking to use the beach. The gate is manned 24 hours and the person on the gate is happy to help with taxis, bus timetables or any other help you may require. On the first floor I love to sit on the balcony and take in the breathtaking views of the Baths of Aphrodite. We have hired the services of a fantastic property management team Pete and Irena who stay locally and are on hand to help our guests have an enjoyable stay.

Great villa in a great location
Really nice villa, bigger than expected and a short walk to the beach.
Need a car ideally to get the many excellent local restaurants
A beautiful villa set in a lovely peaceful area but only 5 minutes from restaurants and bars.
Four of us (including our 2 boys ages 8 and 11) stayed at Villa Anassa for 10 nights and we had the most relaxing time.
We loved all the different outdoor spaces, the bedroom balcony for coffee in the morning, the shaded outdoor dining area, the outdoor sofas and of course the fabulous swimming pool. The villa is set in beautiful gardens in a quiet gated compound, 3 minutes walk to the beach which has a good beach cafe/restaurant.
The villa itself is bright and airy and has everything you need and more for a self catering holiday. We bbq’d most nights but Latchi and Polis have plenty of places to eat and are only 5 minutes drive away.
The weather really cooled down at night so we were grateful for the sky tv later on in the evenings.
Janet the owner couldn’t have done more for us and she put us in touch with Pete who maintains the villa. Pete is a lovely guy who gave us some great restaurant recommendations and local tips.
Can’t recommend Villa Anassa enough!
Thank you very much for your review of Villa Anassa. A perfect description of this lovely property and its surroundings. Glad you all had a wonderful time.
Wonderful stay in a fantastic property!
Great facilities and a lovely villa. Loved the on site tennis court and proximity to the beach.
Thank you Brian for your 5 star review. Glad you had a wonderful stay.
We had a wonderful 2 weeks holiday at Villa Anassa in Neo Chorio ("villa in Latchi") in late September/beginning October. The weather was still gorgeous, 30 degrees Celsius every day. As the villa is right behind the lovely quiet natural beach, there is usually a light breeze, so perfect temperature. There is a little path which leads to stairs down to the beach, which i wandered for many happy swims in the warm and clean sea. It really only takes 5 minutes to get to the beach. The beach is quite long and you could walk along it to a couple of restaurants with loungers and umbrellas. The villa itself is very comfortable: big beds and sofas and areas to sit outside and on the balcony, even the pool loungers are super comfortable! It is a really quiet and green neighbourhood with flowering shrubs everywhere. We were able to really relax and ended up spending a large part of our holidays around the house, by the good sized pool. I don't like it when the pool smells too chemical, but this pool was great, even the birds drank from it. The villa is equipped with everything you could possibly need on your holiday, with ensuite bedrooms, fully functioning kitchen, big flat screen tv with hundreds of english speaking channels, and mosquito screens on all doors and windows. We very quickly felt at home!! Pete, the manager, was very friendly and ready to advise with any questions or requests we had. He got some shopping for us for when we arrived, as we landed in Cyprus late in the evening. I have to say that this was the nicest villa i have ever stayed in and i wish we were still there now! I'm very much hoping to come back!!
Thank you for your wonderful review Bea. We are delighted that you had a wonderful time, you have described the area perfectly. It is one of the most beautiful spots in Cyprus.
If you do decide to return and Villa Anassa is booked please note Villa Aphrodite Home away 8832293 situated next door is also owned by us.
Thanks once again for your fantastic comments.
Anassa Villa is a beautiful , quiet spacious home from home with everything you could want on your holidays in a great location. Its 3 minutes walk from a lovely natural quiet beach and 5 to 15 minutes drive from restaurants, supermarkets in Latchi and Polis and from the Akamas nature reserve. The weather was dtill great in October and we had relaxing blissful holidays. The villa has mosquito screens on all windows and doors, so no problems even for people allergic to bites.
The master bedroom is lovely with a balcony and views to the garden and sea, with big comfortable beds. And onsuite!! We spent a lot of time by the quite big private pool with umbrella and very comfy sun loungers. I don't like very chemical smelling pools, but this one was great, even the birds drank from it.
The lounge has a big flat screen tv, comfy leather vouches and literally hundreds of english channels. With replay!!
The kitchen is well equipped, very good for cooking the beautiful local fresh vegetables and fish and seafood!
I have to say this was the nicest villa we ever stayed in , which made this a really blissfully relaxing holiday. We appreciated the manager Pete being available and giving great tips on where to go and what to do. Thank you to Pete and to the owner for a fabulous holiday!!
Absolutely delighted that you had a great stay in Villa Anassa.
Thank you so much for your review.
A fantastic villa in a great location!
This was the perfect place for a relaxing family holiday. The villa is modern and spacious, immaculately presented and well-equipped with everything you could need, including lots of lovely loungers and outdoor sofas on the various terraces. The two bedrooms and their ensuites were roomy, and we particularly liked the terrace outside the master bedroom which caught the sea breeze and some shade after lunch each day. The pool was fab, big enough to keep our two teenage sons happy all week, and the stunning beach is less than 5 minutes walk away.
Latchi is a few minutes away by car, with some great restaurants and a few shops. We visited Yialos restaurant on the beachfront 3 times during our stay; great food and spectacular sunsets every night. (Book if you want a table on the front row right by the beach).
We picked up a hire car at Paphos airport (this cost about the same as using taxis to and from the airport) and it was an easy drive to the villa, and to the supermarket in Polis during our stay.
Latchi Watersports were a lovely bunch of people - we tried wakeboarding, and also hired a motor boat (with a tow-along donut!) for a morning to visit the Blue Lagoon and other bays along the coast and this was definitely one of the highlights of the holiday.
Janet was in touch once we booked, with lots of help and advice, and Pete, the manager in Cyprus, was friendly and helpful - nothing was too much trouble.
A lovely place which we will hopefully return to in the future.
I am absolutely delighted you had a great time at Villa Anassa. Sometimes our photos and description on the website don’t do the property justice so thank you so much for your 5 star review of the amazing experience you had at the Villa and of the surrounding area. Look forward to welcoming you back in the not too distant future.
Villa Anassa is situated on the AMOROSA development on the North West Coast of Cyprus in Latchi between Polis and the Baths of Aphrodite a region steeped in mythology and rich in history.
