Peaceful and spotlessly clean
The communication with the website, and subsequently, the owner, was simple.
The villa was at the top of a narrow roadway, so very quiet with very few vehicles. Our first impression of the property was that it was spacious and well laid out. Honestly, couldnt have asked for any more.
The pool area/garden was clean and tidy with room for our family of four to enjoy the space.
The village is traditionally quiet, but special praise for the Letymbou Tavern. We ate there on four occasions, and were made to feel welcome and special each time. Great food and service at amazing prices.
Loved our holiday.
Cyprus Village in the hills
We had a lovely holiday at Villa Olivia; set in a charming cyprus village in the hills above Pafos, it really is a break away from it all, but only a short drive to everything, made easier with the car provided with the villa.
It was a real pleasure to meet Marios; the villa has everything you need and the welcome pack really sets you up at the start of the holiday. Airport pick-up is a real bonus and was much appreciated.
It was our first visit to Cyprus but certainly won't be the
Perfect private getaway
I booked a week away at very short notice - in fact, the day before we flew! Despite this, Marios was very accommodating and did everything he could to make the break work. He collected us from the airport and drove us the thirty minutes to Villa Olivia in the car that he provides along with the villa. He showed us round - the villa had everything we needed.
The neighbourhood is very quiet, a perfect little cypriot village. If you are looking for the bright lights of Paphos then this is not the place for you, however if you want peace and quiet with access to a couple of tavernas in the village then you will love it. We didn't try the 'English'taverna - but we did eat three times at the Letymbou Taverna which we highly recommend.
The villa had all the amenities we needed - fridge freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, international TV (not that we used this!) And a good size pool. Everything was of much higher quality than other villas we have stayed in and the villa was spotlessly clean.
I feel we have found a perfect little getaway, close enough to Paphos to be convenient, but far enough away to be peaceful and relaxing.
Fantastic Villa, lovely quiet location, great faciltiies
Our host Marios was amazing both collecting and returning us to the airport. There are a couple of great taverna's nearby which provide traditional Cypriot dishes. The accommodation is specious and the welcome back provided by the hosts was ideal to get you started. Would highly recommend this villa for a relaxing break.
It's great to know that we can keep the same high standards of service.
Wundervolles Haus für tollen Urlaub
Marios und Louisa empfingen uns im Haus, nachdem uns Marios vom Flughafen abgeholt hatte. Schon auf dem Weg zum Haus zeigte uns Marios das Auto, die Geschäfte und Tavernen.
Das Haus ist groß, schön eingerichtet und sauber.
Der Weg zum Haus ist nicht leicht zu finden und in Kombination mit dem Linksverkehr ein kleines Abenteuer.
Der Pool ist groß und war das Highlight für die kids.
Das WLan funktionierte prima, es gab extra einen Trinkwasseranschluss.
Da wir im Hochsommer reisten, waren die Zimmer im 1. Stock sehr warm. Aber wir hätten gegen Gebühr Klimaanlagen nutzen können. Uns störte die Wärme aber nicht.
In der Küche haben wir ein bisschen Besteck nachgekauft - sollte jetzt vollständig sein.
Wir waren oft in Latsi am Strand (ca. 45 Min Autofahrt) - der gefiel uns am besten.
Um die Villa herum ist ein Landwirtschaftsbetrieb, dessen Arbeitsgeräusche manchmal etwas störten. Ab und an gab es auch eine Hundekonzert in der Nähe.
Marios brachte uns am letzten Tag wieder zum Flughafen. Toll!
Tipps: Der Backofen funktioniert nur, wenn vorher die Uhr eingestellt wurde. Den Pool kann man nachts beleuchten (fragt Marios). Unbedingt Adapter für die Steckdosen mitbringen. Es sind zwar ein paar da, aber die reichten nicht für unsere vielen Ladegeräte.
Vielen Dank an Marios und Louisa für diesen wundervollen Urlaub.
Idyllic rural peaceful
a wonderfulAway from it all home from home just what we were looking for and it certainly delivered.We have just returned from a wonderful time spent at Villa Olivia,our hosts Marios&Louisa were really welcoming couldn't do enough to make us really comfortable,the Villa was really well equipped best we have had plenty of seating & sunbeds outside to follow the sun or hide in the shade. The welcome pack was great to set us up even a bottle of home made wine which Marios made perfect, We did have a unexpected detour ended up in Larnaca instead of Phaphos, but Marios was our hero and came to pick us up at Larnaca which was a lot further but he saved the day and drove us straight to the Villa where we totally relaxed & chilled out .The local traditional taverna which was amazing the owners were really friendly the food and service was great and very reasonable they even dished us up a perfect meal when they were about to close.We only wished we had booked to stay longer hope to return soon cant wait .

So beautiful comments make us even more responsible to maintain the high quality services we want to offer to all our guests. Thank you Carol and Paul.

Villa Olivia is built in a quiet spot of Letymou village 15 kilometers from Paphos. The area is mainly agricultural and famous for growing grapes. There are several wine factories which produce both red and white wine from grapes grown locally. Within 5 minutes drive is Tsada Golf Club, an 18 hole course, popular with both residents and tourists. Paphos forest is only 20 minutes away and from there you can drive through the cedar valley and reach the Kykko monastery at Troodos mountains. For those who like the sea can choose between the beaches of either Paphos 20 minutes away, or Polis -the aphrodite's baths 30 minutes. In Paphos town you can visit the Castle at the harbour, the mosaics, the tombs of the Kings, the ancient odeon and many more ancient ruins of the Paphos Kingdom.
