Patio doors from the dining area open out onto the beautifully kept lawn area with play equipment for young children. A terrace with table a chairs overlooks and is an alternative setting for casual or formal dining. A door from the kitchen leads out to the villa's private pool.

The extensive private grounds and gardens of 'The Retreat' in Peristerona are accessed by a long private driveway with fruit orchards on either side.
The centrepiece of the holiday villa's ground is a very inviting 12m x 6m private pool with Roman steps for ease of access. The spacious pool terrace is nicely equipped with 8 large sun loungers that benefit from large overhanging parasols and drinks tables as well as a choice of casual seating. Also on the pool terrace there is a circular bar area with solid wood pergola for shade.
Take a step up and sit under a large gazebo with picnic bench to seat 8 comfortably for lunch or dinner. The large stone built BBQ sits at the end making it the perfect place for alfresco dining and socialising with your party on holiday. An outside shower and WC complete the outside areas. Most of the outside areas afford spectacular uninterrupted views of the surrounding valley and hillside. The pretty flowers, shrubs and trees add to the atmosphere.

''The property was fantastic! Great size indoors with decent sized bedrooms, two of which we had a travel cot in. The pool is great, perfect size, not too deep, our children absolutely loved it! The games and bbq area is again fantastic. Love that it is shaded so the kids can play there when the sun is at its warmest. The play park area is a great extra. All in all a fantastic place to be, especially for children as there is plenty to keep them occupied. My father who has extremely restricted mobility from a stroke he had a few years ago, was perfectly comfortable. We used the downstairs bedroom and toilet for him. I would advise that the villa is not wheelchair friendly as there is a step from the patio area to the front door, and a step from the pool area to get up to the bbq/games area, but I was able to lift the wheelchair up the step. It is perfectly suitable for those with restricted mobility or for those in a wheelchair who have someone able to help. Will definitely come back.
Nice, quiet, hillside location with no other properties overlooking. I would definitely recommend hiring a car (we did this with the recommended Economy car hire through GSP rentals which is a local company and received a free upgrade). The roads are rather steep in some places on your drive there. Paphos is around half an hour drive from the villa with the larger villages of Polis and Latchi, around a 10/15 minute drive. are beautiful places to visit, with plenty of restaurants and bars to visit. Latchi harbour is beautiful. The local supermarket which is about 2km from the villa has everything you could need.
We visited the Harbour Bar in Paphos down towards the harbour/castle, which was very good and is located beside the car park. There is also a large shopping mall in paphos. For those who enjoy sighseeing, Kykkos and Ayios Neophytos monasteries are beautiful. Trodos mountains, Coral Bay Beach, Tomb of the Kings, Latchi Harbour.
Yes, very satisfied with your service as agents. We had no issues with our stay, and were visited by the owner on our first and last day, but had all contact details should we need her. ''
Arrived fairly late and tired, once we had managed to sort our hire car at the airport and rush to a supermarket to buy some essentials. What a lovely villa The Retreat is. The Villa was immaculate and there was a welcome pack of food including bread, spread, cheese, ham, milk, water, coffee, tea and sugar. There was also a huge bowl of fruit and some much-appreciated wine.
On seeing the villa in the daylight the following day we were not disappointed, the views were stunning and the sunbathing area and swimming pool were just as shown on all the websites.
When there was a problem with the TV not working and the safe being locked, Katherina and Dimitri couldn't have been more helpful and came out straight away to sort out any problem.
The villages of Polis and Latchi are very close and the beach at Polis was very quiet with a cafe and toilets. Latchi seems to be an up and coming village/town and the harbour area is lovely - when you find it! Great meal in Faros, Latchi - look out for the waiter with the unusual accent and try to work out where he is from! Agios Georgios is pretty for a visit and a quiet sit on the harbour.
Would advise you avoid the mountain roads unless you are very brave and certainly if it is dark - what a scary experience that was, dirt tracks (with occasional road signs) on the road out of Pomos!
We had lovely weather too with cloud on only one day and it was the end of October.
Would thoroughly recommend The Retreat as a break away from it all. Many thanks to the owners for this lovely villa and ensuring we had a restful holiday.
Both Peristerona and ‘Steni' village centres are just 1-2km away from 'The Retreat' and where you will find a taste of the 'Real Cyprus'. With their mini-markets selling fresh organic produce, coffee shops and restaurants/tavernas as well as the friendly locals, you won't have to travel far to get the most out of your holiday.
Slightly further afield, you will find further amenities such as larger supermarkets, pharmacy, petrol station, and the more extensive choice of bars, restaurants, shops etc in Polis (8km). The nearest beach is at Latchi (12km) which is well known as one of the best on the island. You can relax and sun-bathe on the golden sand by the crystal clear waters, sit in the marina and enjoy lunch eating the day's fresh catch or for the more adventurous there is a great choice of water sports available for all the family.
Golf: Please ask us for golf information. 4 courses in easy driving distance.
Ski: Skiing at Troodos- 50km.
