About the Property

Quiet, detached 3 bedroom villa with swimming pool for up to 6 adults and 1 baby

Watch the sun rise over unspoilt countryside and the glistening waters of the Mediterranean before taking an early-morning dip in the pool surrounded by the colours and scents of an indigenous flower and herb garden. Situated at the edge of a traditional Cypriot community, this comfortable family home on a large plot offers peace and complete privacy, yet is only 250 metres from the centre of the village and the taverna!

Villa Katerina is fully air-conditioned and equipped throughout to the highest standards, including gas central heating for the short winter season. Upstairs, there are 2 bedrooms (1 double and 2 single beds plus space for a baby’s cot) and a full bathroom, as well as access to a roof garden with ample space to sunbathe and relax. Downstairs, there is a further double bedroom, a shower room with WC and a large open-plan kitchen, dining and living room. Full-length, sliding windows with sun-reflecting, insect protection screens lead onto a South-facing patio with varied possibilities for al-fresco dining, a shaded wooden deck with pergola and a barbecue grill.

Car: Necessary

The small rural community of Prastio-Avdimou is located midway between the cosmopolitan cities of Limassol and Paphos (2017 European Capital of Culture), about 5 kilometres above the coastal motorway which allows easy access to both Paphos and Larnaca international airports (about 25 and 65 minutes drive, respectively). Its location at a height of around 350m provides an escape from the heat and humidity present directly at the coast in Summer, as well as a quick route through the neighbouring winegrowing villages up into the Troodos mountains. Prastio was recently officially declared to be among the top ten most attractive villages on Cyprus!

The unspoilt, local beach at Avdimou bay offers 2 waterside dining possibilities and further restaurants, shops and entertainment can be easily reached in the nearby small town of Pissouri. This also has a local pharmacy and a good supermarket, as well as medical services. Watersports and diving are available at Pissouri Bay and four golf courses are also within easy reach (20-50 minutes). For more details see the following links:

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Cathy and John are Scottish and English born, respectively, but have lived most of their adult lives abroad including over 30 years in continental Europe, mainly in Southern Germany. Villa Katerina was their Cypriot home until John's retirement from technical consulting (on corrosion issues in power stations) at the end of 2012. They now split their time between Cyprus, Norfolk (UK) and grandparenting duties (or rather pleasures) in Franconia (northern Bavaria).
