Villa Zefyros is a beautifully furnished three-bedroom villa which sleeps up to six persons and is located within walking distance of the traditional 300 year-old Cypriot village of Neo Chorio on the north-western coast of Pafos District of Cyprus. The villa is set in a private, quiet, gated road and it enjoys spectacular, panoramic views of both Chrysochou Bay and the wild, protected Akamas Peninsula. Villa Zefyros also overlooks the Anassa Hotel, a world renowned exclusive 5-star luxury spa hotel. The villa has a secluded garden with a “sundowner” table and chairs and an infinity/vanishing edge swimming pool. The villa has ample outside furniture which includes a dining table and chairs, sun loungers, sun umbrellas, a gas BBQ and a pergola over the verandah. The interior ground floor consists of a large open plan living area with very comfortable furnishings, a TV, DVD home theatre system with an extensive DVD library, CD player, music library and dock for MP3 Player / iPod. The Internet TV system has a huge amount of television, You Tube, radio and video club stations/channels - there are over 6,000 films etc in the latter! There is a dining area and fully fitted kitchen, which includes an oven, hob, washing machine, fridge / freezer, microwave and dish washer. Also on the ground floor there is a bedroom with fixed bunk beds and a relaxing massage chair and there is also a toilet with wash basin and shower cubicle. Upstairs the stunning master bedroom has a four poster bed and ensuite bathroom, with bath, shower, toilet and wash basin. The master bedroom has a safe available for guests. The second double bedroom also has an ensuite bathroom with a shower cubicle, toilet and wash basin. The property has a spiral staircase from the first floor balcony, to a roof terrace "Sunset Bar" complete with a wooden "pub garden table" to sit with a drink and enjoy the magnificent views of the Akamas Peninsula hills, Chrysochou Bay in the Mediterranean Sea, Latsi (Latchi) Harbour, Polis Chrysochou and the coastline around to Pomos with the dramatic hills of Pafos Forest in the background. Neo Chorio village has a few tavernas (the nearest is a five minutes walk from the villa) and a small supermarket. It is a 3 minute drive down to the beaches, shops and harbour of Latsi and a 10 minutes’ drive to the quaint town of Polis. The villa is approximately a 1 hour drive from Pafos/Paphos International Airport and 2 hours from Larnaca International Airport. The villa is on the eastern edge of the Akamas Peninsula with immediate access to a myriad of off-road tracks and walking trails to enjoy the wild nature of the protected area and its magnificent inland and coastal scenery. Villa Zefyros is 122 metres / 400 feet above sea level thus commanding sweeping views down to the coast and Chrysochou Bay. Zefyros is the Greek God of the West Wind who blew Aphrodite, the goddess of love (also the Roman goddess Venus), to Cyprus where she emerged from the foaming sea at Aphrodite’s Rock in Pafos (Paphos) District, as depicted in the famous painting by Sandro Botticelli (circa 1486). Hence Villa Zefyros as the villa faces west - a perfect spot to enjoy a refreshing pre-dinner cocktail whilst watching the vivid sunsets over the Akamas Peninsula and Chrysochou Bay! A substantial welcome pack is provided upon arrival.

The welcome pack was way above anything we have experienced before, its also the little touches that add to the quality and standard of the villa, we have stayed in many villas but this one is right up there at the top. Finally you could not wish to meet a nicer more helpful family than Keith,Wendy & Simon Watkins, I would honestly recommend this villa to any couples and family's it caters for all. Thank you Regards Rick & Anne

We are also delighted that you intend staying at Villa Zefyros again next year and we look forward to welcoming you back! Yours, Keith, Wendy & Simon.

                                                                    Beautiful!

                                                                    Villa Zefyros was spotlessly clean when we arrived – so much so that it felt as though no-one else had stayed there before. The description on the website is accurate which we feel is important and every home from home luxury has been thought of in order to make your stay comfortable. We can’t comment on the home entertainment system as it wasn’t switched on once! The village of Neo Chorio is tiny and quaint and if you choose to eat in one of the two tavernas in the village you will be eating with locals – always a good sign and they were very welcoming. The harbour area of Latchi is beautiful and lots of restaurants to choose from. It is walkable if you’re happy to stroll in the heat – but it does take 45 minutes. Perfect if you’re not in a hurry and then get a taxi back. Nissos taxis very good and they picked us up from the airport. We loved the tiny quant pebbly beach at Pomos (approx. 30 mins drive and very Mamma Mia) with a lovely taverna over looking the harbour. And also the Pachyammos beach a little further on than Pomos which was undeveloped and empty! Only us two on it! Personally I wouldn’t bother with the baths of Aphrodite but the beach there is interesting. After 11 years of renting private villas we would happily come back to Villa Zefyros (although we do tend not to go to the same place twice) and can easily recommend it to anyone who is thinking of going although not with teenagers who are looking for clubbing! Keith and Wendy were welcoming, provided an excellent welcome pack and were on hand if we needed them but did not intrude on our holiday.

                                                                    We stayed at Villa Zefryos from 1st to 15th July 2017, two weeks is not long enough.. The Villa was spotlessly clean and the welcome pack was beyond belief. Wendy and Keith and their son Simon were both consummate professionals and extremely welcoming, nothing was too much trouble and they were always available for advice about the island. The facilities at this Villa were extensive and nothing has been left to chance, the entertainments from a TV perspective were the best i have ever encountered, lots of channels and all the latest films ready to download and watch. The pool area was fantastic and the panoramic views were stunning, I personally could never get used to that glorious view. We have already put in a request to return next year as this villa really is one in a million so if you are thinking of going here I am certain you will not be disappointed, my only concern is the more reviews this place gets the more difficult it will be to book, hence the reason we have already requested next year. Thanks you Wendy, Kieth and Simon for making our holiday so memorable. Kindest Regards, Steve & Fran

Likewise we thoroughly enjoyed having you stay at the Villa and having the occasional chat together when we could answer your questions about Cyprus and the local area as best we could. We look forward to seeing you again in July 2018. Yours, Keith, Wendy & Simon.

The first time I'd ever had a private swimming pool to myself, and I made the most of it! The views from the villa and the surrounding areas were gorgeous. Ventured into the village round the corner a few times, went to a couple of lovely restaurants and rang the bell of the church! Drove to Latsi and Polis a few times, the harbours and eateries would have taken a lot more than a week to fully appreciate. Hope to return later in the year when the turtles are laying their eggs in a nearby beach and to get some snorkeling in. Overall, I had a fabulous stay, thank you!

                                                                    Villa Zefyros surpasses its description as do the views of the Akamas and Chrysochou Bay. From the minute we arrived (which was very late at 1am after a long and delayed flight) Keith and Wendy could not have been more helpful - meeting us in Latchi to show us the way to the villa, settling us in and providing the most comprehensive welcome pack! The Villa is amazing, a real home from home and has left us thoroughly spoilt (this being the first time we have used private villa accommodation). We had everything we needed and more for a relaxing two week stay and our boys (12 and 9) had plenty to do both inside and out with our private pool, pool 'toys', garden space and the Internet TV with access to their favourite programmes and an extensive movie listing when the sun got too hot (or a movie night was called for!). There are plenty of restaurants in nearby Latchi and Polis and one within walking distance of the Villa - Keith and Wendy supplied their recommendations, all of which were fab. Our favourite day was to take out a Quad Bike and Beach Buggy to off-road into the Akamas. We made it down to Lara Beach and round to the Blue Lagoon which was an exhilarating experience and well worth it! Would definitely recommend the Villa and this area of Cyprus. Thank you Keith and Wendy !!

Larnaca International Airport - 170 kilometres / average 2 hours (or a little over) drive. Because the villa enjoys a quieter location, hiring a vehicle is essential to visit the local villages (apart from Neo Chorio), towns and beaches, as well as for exploring the Akamas Peninsula and of course the many other lovely and interesting parts of this rural and historic island. Distances: Nearest Taverna (Pavlaras): 350 metres. Local Village Centre - Neo Chorio: 1 kilometre. Latsi Harbour: 3 kilometres. Latsi Beaches: stretch approximately 2 kilometres east and 5 kilometres west, of Latsi Harbour. Baths of Aphrodite: 5.8 kilometres. Polis Chrysochous Town: 6.5 kilometres. Kathikas: 19 kilometres.
