Amazing & Awesome

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Stephanie villa from the 30th June for 7 nights. There were 6 adults and 3 young children all under the age of 5yrs.

From the beginning Katerina was always replying back to my questions, and always full of information that was useful.

The payment for the villa was easy and very straight forward.

We arrive late afternoon on a Thursday, the villa has easy access, and just stunning.

The views all around were amazing. The view of the hills, and greenery and the dam were so stunning.

The minute we walked into the villa we immediately felt at home. Katerina had left us basic food, which helped us out as it was a long day. We drove to a nearby supermarket the next day and picked up other stuff we needed for the week. You pretty much can get everything in Cyprus.

The villa was great with space, the swimming pool was amazing and the children enjoyed the floatables which were left there from the owner. The 3 electric cars were definitely used to their full capacity.

The park was used by the children as well as the adults.

All the bedrooms had ac, the living room and kitchen has free standing fans, but once the patio doors were all open a lovely breeze would flow through the villa.

The days were hot, reaching 30c everyday, the fruit trees where a charm too, we picked fruit nearly everyday, and was enjoyable to eat throughout our stay.

The holiday was just what we all needed,

Thank you Katerina for sharing such a lovely villa.

We def will be back.

Stunning views and plenty of relaxation.

  • 5 of 5

Arrived to the most wonderful place on earth! Stunning location with spectacular views out toward the mountains. The villa was luxurious and catered for every need, if it had a rating it should be 5* plus. The village of Simou has two good tavernas and the nearby village of Kathikas also has some good tavernas,. Our hosts are very friendly and nothing was too much bother. They had all the information you could need in a book and even provided a mobile phone with their phone number and other important numbers, police, ambulance etc, should you need it. We absolutely loved this place and really did not want to leave; it was everything we dreamed of and more. We will return to enjoy the delights of Stephanie villa again.

Fantastic from start to finish

  • 5 of 5

The villa itself is decorated to a really high standard and possesses everything you could possible ask for. Any budding chefs out there thinking of booking, Stephanie’s kitchen is better equipt than most commercial kitchens! Beds are really comfortable,plenty of clothes hanging space and the outside area around the pool is fantastic. Perfect for a lazy day sunbathing or al fresco dining. Car hire is essential. The villa is situated in a small village Simou which is about a 30 minute drive from the airport. Paphos and Coral Bay are also around 20-30 mins drive away but are easy to find and most places are well sign posted. There are a couple of local Tavernas in the village which are worth a visit. Bottom line, I would recommend Stephanie villa to anyone who wants to visit Cyprus. They are contactable throughout your entire stay for advice and help if needed and even provide you with a pre paid local mobile with their personal mobiles on, local hospital and emergency numbers just in case. We've had a fantastic holiday...thanks to George and Katerina for all of your help and kindness and we will definitely book Stephanie villa again in the future. Regards from Gareth family

Great time for all ages

  • 5 of 5

My family had a lovely stay at this villa last year. The villa was spacious, clean and had a great pool. It was conveniently located just 15 mins to Polis and Latchi where we found a good variety of shops and restaurants. We look forward to coming back again in years to come.

Excelent Villa

  • 5 of 5

This Villa is just fantastic, set in a quiet location a couple of minutes drive from the village of Simou where you will find a bar and Taverna plus a bank and ATM machine. This was our 3rd stay at this villa and we have already booked for next year (2016) need I say more. There is every thing you want for a family holiday with a decent size swimming pool to a huge playground for my grandchildren, which has slides, swings etc. The Villa itself is very luxurious with 4 double bedrooms all on-suite plus a separate toilet down stairs. the bedrooms are all air-conditioned essential in Cyprus in the summer months. It is in a quiet location but still only a 15 minutes drive from Polis and Paphos is not much further, with its bar's and nightclubs if you want something more lively. As a family ranging from the oldest at 86 years and the youngest at 4 years we tended to eat at the villa quite a lot so the fully equipped kitchen plus an excellent bar-be-Q provided for all our needs, then there was the very large covered patio where we ate with wonderful views over the surrounding countryside. On the property there are a large selection of fruit trees which provided us with fresh fruit strait from the tree, there is nothing like a ripe orange picked and eaten still warm from the sun, if you haven't tried one you won't know how much better they taste from the ones you buy in the supermarket.

I cant praise this Villa highly enough it is the ideal choice for any family with children who want a quiet place away from it all where the children can play in safety. I could go on for ever about the Villa and how good it is so if you want to stay in a villa and pretend you just won the Lottery for a couple of weeks then this is the place to stay.

Perfect place to get away from it all.

  • 5 of 5

The property is as described, a luxury, self contained villa. The pool is perfect in size for 8 people and the surrounding terrace and BBQ area perfect to escape the heat of the sun and enjoy a glass of something cold.

Main attraction is the kids play park with swings, slides, climbing frames a plenty.

This villa is up in the hills and you will need a hire car (no shops or restaurants within walking distance) but if you want to be self sufficient, totally relax in beautiful, safe surroundings then this is the place of you.

The owner, Katerina and her family could not be any more helpful but were not, in any way, intrusive.

I have no hesitation in recommending this villa for families looking to relax around the pool and bbq in the sun.

If you are looking for nightlife Latchi harbour is circa 40 euro away (8 seater minibus)

Near the villas there is a very good traditional Cypriot tavern and in the village center there are some small traditional Coffee shops (which once per week they provide food) and a small supermarket. Very near the villa there is the famous traditional watermill bakery with fresh bread and other products every day. Also on it there is the best traditional Cyprus tavern that you ever visit. There are more taverns, restaurants and supermarket in less than 10’ driving in nearby villages and towns.

The majestic crystal-clear water conditions are ideal for life by the sea, The Akamas offers one of the best spots for sailing, fishing and scuba diving in the Mediterranean. Amazing mountain bike trails and hiking allows you to experience the area to the fullest. The area is renowned for its cultural programmers’ which include traditional Cypriot festivals, music and arts events held throughout the year. There is also a golf course that is only a 15 minute drive away from the resort.

SIMOU VILLAGE:

Situated in close proximity to Drymou is the village of Simou with its 250 inhabitants, including about twenty non-Cypriot families. Paphos is 30kms away and in the opposite direction Polis is 12kms away. At 500 meters above sea level, there is little, if any, humidity in Simou.

There are two restaurants/taverns in Simou, one bakery in front of the village, one supermarket and three coffee shops. The coffee shops are all located in the pleasant village center.

The village square resurfacing the last years and it finished in stone, in keeping with the tradition of the village.

There is a village nursery catering for 3-6 year olds and an infants’ school for the 6-12 years old. After that, the nearest secondary school is in Polemi and children are ferried there by inter-village buses or by their parents. The closest police station is a short drive away in Stroumbi and you will find the nearest hospital in the town of Polis. However, a doctor does visit the village every week on Fridays.

If you ever tire of the fantastic sea and mountain views, including the magnificent Table Top Mountain just outside the village, you can always head off to the Evretou Dam just outside the village boundary for a spot of fishing or visit the nearby Tsada golf course. Even closer though, why not see how big a catch you can get from the local river running through Simou?

Simou is home to one of the oldest trees in Cyprus at 1,000 years old – and there are records to prove it. The deciduous Terebinth or Trimithia tree is native to the Mediterranean and is said to have produced the earliest known from of turpentine. In days gone by, the ancient Greeks were said to have used this as medicine.

Also of note is the medieval Skarfos Bridge which was built by the Venetians. It is situated next to the old watermill where the locals used to grind wheat.

Simou has a bit of everything for everybody – peace and quiet, a fantastic location being both close to nature and at the same time within easy distance of all amenities, unique sights and breathtaking views. With its sister village of Drymou, Simou is the perfect setting for your traditional stone-built house or a restoration project.
