Lovely Villa Antigone
On our arrival late at night, we were very pleased to discover the welcome pack of tea, coffee, milk, bread, butter, honey and halloumi, not forgetting the bottle of wine!
Unfortunately, we also found a few problems resulting from the very recent building works/extension, including no internet connection, no air conditioning in the main bedroom, lights not working in second bedroom, no water coming out of hot taps. We left messages for the owner Nicos and and Melissa, the property manager after midnight , on discovering these issues. They both contacted us first thing in the morning with apologies, and Melissa then arrived with plumber/electrician/ general handyman Dave, and remedied all of these faults.
We found the villa very suitable for our needs as a family with 2 teenagers. The beds were comfortable, bed linens and towels good quality, good wardrobe/ storage space, and great to have the 3 bathrooms. Air conditioning and ceiling fans very welcome at night.
The living/dining areas were comfortable, though we didn't use these much as spent most time outside. The kitchen was compact but very well stocked with plenty of glasses, crockery and cutlery. The large fridge freezer was ideal, and the dishwasher and washing machine easy to use.
The outside space is fabulous; pretty garden area with fruit trees and flowering shrubs, gorgeous scented jasmine on fence, and obviously the great pool- a good size for swimming and a perfect temperature in late May- a nice surprise to have pool towels provided too. There were plenty of sun loungers, although some of these were damaged (I understand that they are being replaced). The spacious patio area with outside table and chairs was fab- and another table and chair set in the garden too. Although the BBQ area was not complete, a good portable BBQ was provided. The new extended upstairs balcony, accessible from the upstairs bedrooms was lovely, with beautiful views over the garden, banana field behind, and out to the sea. Hopefully some outside furniture will be provided for this area too.
We had been to Coral bay previously and knew that this area was were we wanted to be- quieter outer edge of Coral Bay, accessible to lively strip if wanted, but within a few minutes walk of 2 good waterfront tavernas and pretty sandy beach below Corallia Beach hotel. Also well positioned for access to Paphos, Akamas penisula and Latchi.
We would definitely recommend, and stay at this villa again.
The property was expected ,it was in a superb position/area,lovely pool,great size garden,kitchen rather small as was the dining area but as the weather was great we didn't use the dining area.
Unfortunately the 1st impressions weren't that good as although the property had obviously been cleaned the decor was grubby in places,inside the kitchen cupboards hadn't been cleaned.
Large cobwebs on the stairs and as the property had been cleaned that morning these should have gone.
We are used to a cleaner part way through our holidays and I hadn't taken on board that there wasn't one which wasn't a problem but there was no access to fresh linen and no drying area for us to wash our own sheets.
On saying all this I would stay there again as positives outweighed the negatives despite the next door neighbour using his hedge cutter at 7am as we are early risers and we found it funny.
Fantastic, spacious villa in a great location
My wife and I had a lovely holiday in this villa for 10 days with our daughter and my wife's parents. The villa itself is extremely spacious and well appointed, with everything we needed provided. The swimming pool is very large, and the balconies and bedrooms have beautiful views out over the sea.
The villa is also in a great location, far enough away from the main Coral Bay strip to be quiet and feel secluded, but close enough to shops, beaches and other services so that you can get everything you need.
Nicos was also a brilliant host, responding very quickly to all emails and enquiries before we went, and even offering some very helpful suggestions for local beaches and restaurants. The ones we tried were all lovely, and we're definitely planning a return visit to see the rest.
Lovely villa, great location!
We had a wonderful time staying here. The villa was as described and had everything we needed. The beds were really comfy with good quality bedding. The pool was wonderful and it was great having a deep end and a shallow end which the children could stand up in (often we've stayed in places where the pool has been one depth and too deep for our children to stand up in). The villa is also a very short walk to the beach which was a beautiful sandy beach and very safe for the children.
Nicos gave us plenty of information and always replied to emails v quickly.
We would love to visit again and had a perfect holiday. Thank you!
Perfect for a relaxing family holiday.
We stayed over the Easter holidays with our 2 girls aged 6 and 5. The villa is spacious and well equipped. The pool is fantastic - a great size, private and very clean. Although our stay was early in the season the weather was still lovely - just warm enough for swimming and sun bathing but not too oppressive in the middle of the day that we needed a break. It was also great to be able to take the short walk to Corallia beach for the girls to build sandcastles and make friends as soon as their feet hit the sand. I loved swimming here too - really calm and clear water. We enjoyed driving to Paphos in the evening for dinner but equally found the local supermarket in Coral Bay excellent and enjoyed cooking in the villa too.There are also lots of options for day trips and sights to visit too. Everything is well signposted. Overall, it was just what we needed to recharge our batteries and create some great memories. Nicos was very helpful throughout as were his team in Paphos. They delivered a parasol on our first day and lots of helpful advice. Thank you for a wonderful time.
Fab! Everything you could want from a villa
Villa Antigone has everything you need for a wonderful holiday. Myself, husband and daughter (aged 6) and my parents stayed for 10 nights in July.
The location of the villa was perfect for us – in a quiet and peaceful location but with the beach, buses and taxis less than a 5 min stroll away and only a 10 min stroll to a mini market and selection of bars/restaurants. In addition, you can take the bus (€1.50 per adult) or taxi (€8 for a mini bus) down to Coral Bay ‘Strip’ for many more bars and restaurants – probably walkable, but in the heat or with younger children the bus/taxi option is a better bet.
On arrival at the villa for the initial ‘big’ shop, it’s worth getting a taxi to the large supermarket in the main area of Coral Bay (again only €8) for a larger selection of everything. The supermarket will deliver you and your groceries back to the villa free of charge (assume subject to a min value).
The bus service is great, regular and reliable. We considered hiring a car, but took the bus instead. A day ticket is only €5 per adult and you can travel all day and get on and off as many times as you like.
The villa has great facilities including an American fridge/freezer with ice dispenser and an excellent large swimming pool, in which our daughter spent every waking moment! The area around the pool is spacious too with a selection of fruit trees and pretty decorative bushes – providing plenty of opportunities for lizard hunting – my daughter’s new past-time. There are sea views from the patio and both upstairs bedrooms and balconies.
The owner, Nicos, was extremely helpful, accommodating and informative from our initial enquiry right through our booking and prior to arrival. The management company were also brilliant – before we arrived they provided information/prices and arranged private transfers and welcome packs. Upon arrival the team really looked after us making sure everything was just as we
expected – very friendly and reliable.
We would not hesitate to return to the villa in the future or in recommending it to our friends and family.
I am glad you had a great time.
See you again soon.
The Villa is a short walk from Coral Beach and Corralia hotels.
The nearby beach can be reached without crossing a road.
