Guestbook comments from the owner

As returning visitors we knew what to expect........and we weren't disappointed. On this occasion, late September into early October, 2017 we were accompanied by our adult daughter and we were blessed with wall-to-wall sunshine for the whole two weeks. Temperatures in the high twenties / low thirties brought the magnificent swimming pool into its own.

Sun, swim, shade - delightful.

The villa is ideally situated in a quiet cul-de-sac with Peyia village just five minutes drive away ( a car is an essential ) with ready access to taverns and bars, a small supermarket, bakery and hairdresser with a more substantial supermarket just ten minutes away at Coral Bay, big enough to cater for all our domestic needs.

Choosing to eat out was not a problem with the nearby village of Kathika ( twenty minutes by car ) offering a good selection of restaurants, details of which are in the Information Folder kindly provided by the owners Mario and Frances and kept up-to-date by satisfied visitors The villa itself is beautiful, well furnished and immaculately clean with local housekeeper Sally discreetly available whenever required.

The Goddess Athene has many attributes which I would add " perfection ".

Great villa, great location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for one week with 3 friends. The villa was really clean and comfortable. We loved relaxing by the pool and getting the BBQ going, enjoying the food sitting outside. The villa is well equipped for anything you may need during your stay. It's well air conditioned and the TV has all the UK channels. Supermarket is not too far and there is a good selection of restaurants/taverns in Peyia and Paphos. Would highly recommend the villa for couples, friends or family. Will most definitely be coming back!

Villa Athene

Stunning Views Fantastic Facilities

  • 5 of 5

This is our 4th visit to a most relaxing & well laid out Villa that has everything - step straight out into your private pool and entertain with a BBQ or sit on the balcony & watch the sun go down. The view is hard to beat & even if you want to catch up on some evening TV you can get all of the main UK channels & WiFi & start watching football or soaps at 10pm. We have rented a few villas in Cyprus but this is without doubt the best & the owner has put a lot of thought into making us feel welcome & Sally is excellent at looking after anything you need. Thank you for yet another fantastic stay. Christine & Paul

An excellent holiday again

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit and we noticed some additional features such as the balcony seating, new planting around the pool and new internal sofas. All welcome additions to what is an already excellent property, well kitted out. We did a few additional things such as see the sunset at Agios Georgios; it has a little harbour and great restaurant. We also ate a fish meze at Latchi, worth the journey and discovered more of Peyia. A lazy but good holiday.
