3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms bungalow with un-interrupted sea views peaceful setting
Why Kathy chose Kouklia
Secret Valley is an ideal location for 'chilling out' and spending quality time with friends and family. Secret Valley is a very central location for touring the Island and also approx 15 min drive from Paphos Airport so your holiday begins sooner. I lived in Cyprus with my parents and love the 'laid back' atmosphere We loved this villa, first because the Secret Valley,Kouklia area is very pretty and then its' seclusion, without looking for it you wouldn't know Villa Tyche existed. The villa is just off the road that goes around this part of the estate, with block paving access to only three villas, Villa Tyche being the last one. Villa Tyche overlooks the estate and coastline down towards Paphos - whilst the coastal views are also evident from the ground floor the roof terrace is a higher advantage point to watch the excellent sun-sets or watch the planes arrive (never thought I would have been interested in that!) The villa itself is all on one level, two of the bedrooms have their own en-suites and the third bedroom has a shower/toilet room across from it - no queuing for bathrooms here, which was/is ideal for my growing family all wanting their own 'private' facilities. If you're looking for a peaceful holiday, listening to bird song, taking in the wonderful views but central to touring Cyprus - put Villa Tyche on your shortlist.

We're so glad you enjoyed your stay.
This villa is amazing and a lot of consideration has been given to the furnishings and equipment. It is well laid-out, with air conditioning in each bedroom and the main living space, plenty of seating (both inside and out), comfortable beds and a well-equipped kitchenThe games, DVDs and iPod docking station provided are a thoughtful extra touch. Having 3 toilet/shower rooms for a 3-bedroom villa is a great advantage, especially when there are 6 people getting ready for an evening out.
The garden and pool area are lovely, with plenty of comfortable sun loungers and a pool-side shower. The roman steps into the pool are much better than the metal rungs you find in some pools, which can get far too hot in the sunshine. The pool area gets sunshine from early morning until sunset, however the outside seating area gives shade for the entire day and there is often a welcome breeze from the sea on hot days.
We would highly recommend watching the dramatic sunsets from the sun terrace and there are fantastic views down to the sea from both the sun terrace and the pool side.
To top it all off, Bill and Kathy who manage the villa are very helpful, friendly and attentive and make a special effort to ensure that everything is perfect for your stay.
We will definitely be back!
Hi Elaine, so glad you enjoyed your stay and the pool.
It will be lovely to see you again.
Thank you for taking time to submit a review, we really appreciate it and for looking after the villa during your stay.
Take care and see you soon!!
We have just enjoyed the most amazing week at Villa Tyche!
On arrival, the villa was spotlessly clean throughout and offered everything you could need for self catering needs; from tea cloths and pegs to a fabulous brick BBQ and comfortable beds! The sunsets from the roof terrace were beautiful and the villa felt private, but not cut off from the surroundings.
From the outset, our point of contact, Kathy, was friendly, professional and quick in her email responses. Thank you for making our week at Villa Tyche so very special! ☺️
Thank you for your review.
I'm so glad you enjoyed your holiday.
Once again thank you for looking after Villa Tyche during your stay and how lovely you left it on your departure, we really appreciated it.
Lovely to meet you and your family.
Excellent relaxing holiday in beautiful bungalow
We booked this bungalow after being impressed with the pictures and quick response of the property manager, Kathy. Although, at the time, the property was new to their management and there were no reviews as such we need not have worried at all because the bungalow is every bit as amazing as it looks in the pictures.
From start to finish any queries we had were answered quickly and efficiently and nothing was too much trouble. We even managed to pay extra for a late check out which was great as our flight home was not until 10pm on departure day and this gave us an extra day to enjoy.
We found the villa quite easily using the instructions we were given which was in a quiet area away from the hustle and bustle but with plenty to do a short drive away. Kathy greeted us warmly the morning of our arrival and checked we had everything we needed.
We used facilities at Aphrodite Hills resort just five minutes away which has a good selection of restaurants, shops etc and in Kouklia Village nearby where we visited the shop and also Gabriel's Taverna which is excellent. There is also a craft shop here which was very good.
Troodos Mountains are a short drive with pretty waterfalls, Omodos village for the crafts and restaurants (Kantoi for the mezze), lovely forest drive/walks etc. We also visited the Akamas region by jeep safari including the Blue Lagoon, Aphrodite Baths, Adonis Waterfall, Lara Bay, Sea Caves, Banana Plantation and traditional villages en route. Limassol and Paphos are also nice for a day or afternoon out. Plenty of choice of things to do locally and everyone so friendly and helpful.
The bungalow itself was perfect for us plenty of different places to relax both inside and outside with the pool and the garden surrounding the property is nicely planted with a large palm tree or two for shade. We used the BBQ which was very good and easy to clean and ate on the roof terrace with views of the sun setting over the sea.
Inside the bungalow is everything you could need it really is a home from home. The rooms are spacious with adequate bathrooms and good air conditioning system. The property was very clean, comfortable and furnished and equipped to a very good standard.
All in all an excellent holiday experience and we hope to return again in the future.
Thank you Kathy and Bill for a wonderful holiday!
Really pleased you enjoyed your stay at Villa Tyche - and enjoyed having a 'doing' day and a 'stay at home' day, so you recharged your batteries but also saw some of what Cyprus and the surrounding area has to offer
It was lovely to meet you, thank you for looking after the villa during your stay and for leaving it lovely on your departure, it was very much appreciated.
This property is well equipped with all you need for a perfect holiday. Very clean throughout, with ample space in all rooms. Beautiful views especially of the sea from the terrace patio. Having three bathrooms made life easy for us as a larger family. Stunning gardens all around the property with plenty of seating and sun loungers. The brick built bbq was a definite hit when entertaining family. Highly recommend as there is everything you could need in this villa. It’s homely yet still has the lovely holiday feeling to it.
Thank you for taking time out to write a review, I know you have a busy lifestyle and really appreciate you taking time out to do so.
We're really pleased that you all had a good holiday and made use of the different seating areas with their lovely sea views and, of course the BBQ.
Villa was clean throughout on arrival with no problems to any appliances. On the outside there was great views from the roof top terrace and a nice sized pool to swim in with a shaded patio area on the back also. The area it's in is lovely, tucked out of the way of a main road and more then often quite. The closest shop is within a 5-10 minute drive and is about a 30 minute drive to paphos centre.
Great holiday villa to stay in and would personally defiantly go again
It was lovely to meet you and so glad that you enjoyed your holiday at Villa Tyche.
We know that you managed to explore quite a bit of the area whilst you was here.
We would love to see you again
Take care Kathy
Secret Valley is close to Paphos airport, ideal for when you arrive on late flights and all you want to do is 'get there'. It is a very peaceful area, the villas are located high up (so there always seems to be a breeze, ideal for the hot summer months) with Secret Valley golf course being approx 5 minute drive in the base of the valley.
Secret Valley is an ideal area to explore the whole Island.
There are coastal path walks that lead to Petra Tou Romiou (Aphrodite Rocks) with beautiful scenery.
Nearby are local villages, the nearest being Kouklia, Mandria and Pissouri in the opposite direction, which have numerous bars and restaurants.
Kouklia has a couple of tavernas, streets at the centre of the village are closed to traffic during night time for safety and also to allow any guest attractions to perform.
Mandria also has a couple of tavernas offering excellent food. Just outside Mandria is a local supermarket which has its' own in-house bakery and offers fresh local produce including meat and fish counters.
Pissouri has the beach water sports and sea front restaurants, whilst going higher up to the village you will find a warren of streets with tavernas and good local restaurants. There is also an amphitheater, listen to performers or watch a play under the stars with coastal views as a backdrop.
Paphos town and harbour are a 20 min drive away
Aphrodite Hills, with it's health club offering massages, facials, gym facilities and tennis are also available is approx just over 5 min drive away.
There are mosaics, quad biking, water sports, golfing, churches - all interests catered for.
So, if you are looking for a base and If you want a place where you can 'switch off' and listen to the birds sing but still be close to visit Paphos and other local villages, each with their own atmosphere, then put Secret Valley and of course Villa Tyche on your 'shortlist'
