Additional Information: Avakas Gorge
This impressive gorge is in the western part of the Akamas peninsula, about 20 km from Paphos. The linear trail through the gorge is approximately 2.5 km long with steep rocks on both sides reaching up to 80 metres in height with the narrowest point being just 3 metres wide. Deep inside the ancient gorge you will be amazed by the towering cliffs, rare plants and flowers, reptiles, wild mountain goats and delicate ecosystems.
This extensive and often near-deserted sandy beach requires a 4WD vehicle to reach it as it is accessed along several miles of un-surfaced tracks. Lara Bay is an extremely important turtle breeding ground, here you can find green turtles and hawks-bill turtles. These turtles are on the endangered species list and Lara Bay is being made a safe haven for their egg laying.
Local Area: The Villa is approx a 50 minute drive from Paphos Airport. Situated 5 mins walk from Neo Chorio village which remains pretty and traditional with St Minas church, 2 tavernas, a coffee shop, craft shop and basic grocery store. Neo Chorio is a starting point for walks through the Akamas National Park, well known for the Baths of Aphrodite and beautiful quiet beaches some only accessible by boat, which can be hired at reasonable rates from Latchi Water Sports, or you can take a day trip out on one of the larger boats including lunch. The local beaches are uncrowded and one is shared by the luxury Anassa Hotel, here you can hire all manner of water sports equipment along with expert tuition. Latchi harbour is a 3minute drive away with a large choice of tavernas and fish restaurants, bank and small supermarket. The small town of Polis is a further 5 minute drive providing a larger choice of restaurants, bars, banks, fish market and various places of cultural interest.
Other Activities: Bird watching, boat trips to the Blue Lagoon for snorkelling, or Lara bay to see the turtles, watersports, biking, go-karting, walking along nature trails and visiting archaeological sites. A car is recommended to explore the Troodos Mountains, in the winter skiing is available and is approx 2 hours drive away with 4 intermediate slopes. As we are right on the edge of the Akamas Nature Reserve you can go off road in the hills but please be aware that you will need to hire a 4 x 4 car/jeep or quad bike for this activity. Or you can go on a jeep safari if you do not wish to take on the driving yourself.

Why Stewart & Sue chose Neo Chorio
We fell in love with Cyprus whilst on a family holiday 6 years ago, and in particular, this beautiful green unspoiled area near the village of Neo Chorio on the edge of the Akamas National Park. The views are spectacular, and this beautiful tranquil setting is the perfect place to relax and unwind with breathtaking views and sunrises.
What makes this Villa unique
Villa Mia has stunning sea and mountain views, situated on an elevated plot looking down the valley towards the beautiful bay of Chrysochous .The villa is situated in a peaceful location on the outskirts of the charming village of Neo Chorio with its stone houses, a couple of coffee shops, general stores and tavernas. Yet its only a few minutes drive from the marina in Latchi where you can watch the fisherman unload their catch from the harbor or have lunch in one of the many beachside restaurants and bars. Polis is a 10 minutes drive away where you can find shops, a large supermarket, restaurants, bars and banks. There are plenty of activities within easy reach, mountain biking, 4 x 4 off roading, hiking along with sailing and every water sport you can think of

A perfect house near the loveliest village.
Villa Mia is everything and more than the photos and the description depict. We enjoyed a blissful week in Cyprus at this top end property. Latchi is small and quiet in the Spring. I couldn't believe how green Cyprus is - perhaps less so in the summer months? The HomeAway listing understated the loveliness of this property. A welcoming child friendly environment, (children aged 7-10, steps may not suit much younger children), the garden with lots of lovely and unusual plants, the solar powered lighting making the evenings very pretty and the incredible well-provided for kitchen(s). The house itself has everything you could want and more in terms of provision, (even an extensive DVD and book collection - we had a few cooler rainy days), masses of local information about activities, a beautiful open fire, blankets on all of the furniture for cooler evenings. The outside kitchen with state of the art grill and second dishwasher was much appreciated. The pool is lovely - much appreciated. Everything was exactly as promised, clean, beautifully functional and well-presented, and the owners were extremely kind and helpful, emailing within less than 30 minutes during our stay when we asked them for house/local information. The setting itself is really amazing... photos just do not do it justice. In particular the restaurant in the village at the top of the hill. We ate there a lot. Wonderful kind people, nothing too much trouble, food excellent! Lovely walk back to the villa. The view from the terrace is breath-taking. The local beach is quiet in March/April, we were often the only people on it and the views across the sea were beautiful.
We hope to return to Villa Mia next year and would highly recommend it to our friends and family.
A Stunning Villa in a perfect setting
If you want a high end luxurious holiday………look no further than the beautiful Villa Mia, Neo Chorio, Latchi. Stewart and Sue (the owners) have really made this a home from home!! Giving you the ideal base for your holiday. A fabulous, well-maintained and well-equipped villa, in a stunning location beautifully laid out with lovely private gardens with the most spectacular panoramic sea views and in easy reach of the attractions of Latchi.
We were there the first two weeks of November and enjoyed continuous sunshine (apart from one rainy day), so the private pool and the well-equipped outdoor kitchen facilities were used to the full. The pool area being well lit for your enjoyment on hot summer nights. The spacious outdoor room has wonderful views and a truly lovely place to watch the fabulous sunsets. If you don’t feel like cooking, then there are plenty of local restaurants to choose from and all reasonably priced, some recommended by Stewart and Sue, some we found ourselves. We were recommended the Lamb and rosemary pie at Molos and we were not disappointed it was delicious!! Also the best brandy sours are to be had at Faros.
We hired a car which we feel is a must and visited several parts of this lovely island during our stay. We had a trip to Limassol which has changed beyond belief, the harbour is now a billionaire’s playground. We visited Aphrodite’s spring and a few other destinations but mainly we spent our time at the villa and why not? It has everything and more!!
We would certainly recommend this amazing place and thank Stewart and Sue for their outstanding customer service. We had a truly memorable holiday and one that we will be repeating next year.
Villa Mia is an outstanding holiday villa. All the 5 star reviews are well deserved! I can't think of a single improvement that Stewart & Sue could make! Well equipped throughout they have thought of everything. Preparing our meals in the outside kitchen & eating looking out over the fabulous views was so relaxing. We loved the area, the sleepy village further up the hill & the more lively Latchi in the harbour below. We spent a lovely afternoon on a yacht from Latchi Watersports, enjoyed meals in the local restaurants in both Latchi & Polis...all recommendations from the excellent information provided by our hosts. I really can recommend this beautiful villa, by far the best we have stayed at in any country!
Great place for a relaxing holiday.
What a lovely place for a holiday. Pretty villa and well maintained. The garden is stunning.
Loved the outside kitchen and dining area. We spent a lot of time relaxing in this part of the villa.
The swimming pool was essential and also spent a lot of time relaxing and reading around the pool.
There is also a table tennis table by the pool which we had many a good game on.
The area is very nice and I loved the little fishing village of Latchi close by. Good places to eat in the evening and a few shops to stock up on supplies.
The Akamas mountains are only a stone’s throw from the Villa and we drove up into them one night to watch the sun go down over the sea. What a view. Take a camera its breath taking.
Sue and Stewart obviously put a lot of work into keeping this villa to a high standard and I can thoroughly recommend it.
I will be going again.
Best chilled break ever!
This has been one of the best villas we have stayed at. Where to start?
Perhaps with the beautiful view over the bay, the tranquil surroundings and the excellent villa itself.
The outside kitchen is better well kitted out for cooking than my own one at home. The eating area overlooks the magnificent views, you can spend hours over a meal just chatting and looking at the view. The bedrooms and bathrooms are immaculate. We went in the pool every day or to the nearby beach (which has a great café).
We went to Lara Bay to see where the turtles lay their eggs and visited local bars and restaurants.
We tried out skiing, paddle boarding and kayaking at Laatchi Watersports (the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable).
All in all, I would highly recommend this villa.
Stunning villa with great views
Had a great family holiday at Villa Mia. Outside space is fantastic with stunning views of the sea. Only a short car ride to Latchi where there are plenty of lovely places to eat (Nostos being our favourite). The villa is home from home and has everything you need, with fridges by the pool and both the in door and outdoor kitchen you really do have everything to hand.
Will definitely be returning to Villa Mia!
In a sought after unspoilt coastal area of Cyprus,Villa Mia’s location is one of peace and tranquillity. Imagine relaxing alfresco, sipping your favourite cocktail looking out over Latchi harbour and Chrysochous Bay, with breathtaking sunrises and panoramic views by day and village lights twinkling in the distance by night. Surrounded by almond and olive tree-covered hills and beautiful unspoiled beaches, the area of Polis Chrysochous is one of the prettiest in Cyprus. Nestled on a hillside at the edge of the charming village of Neo Chorio and the Akamas National Park, Villa Mia is set on a large plot with an upper garden blooming with local flora, fragrant herbs, olive & fruit trees. Lots of places to have a solitary morning coffee or an afternoon nap in the shade. The lower garden has a private swimming pool, large sun terrace with lots of seating areas and sun loungers enabling you to soak up the sun or enjoy the shade. With panoramic sea and mountain views, yet within easy reach of several beaches and bays, watersports and other activities. A short drive away there’s the hustle and bustle of shops, supermarket, banks, bars and restaurants etc. Other Activities: jeep safaris, 4x4 off roading, quad biking, hiking in Akamas nature reserve, sailing, scuba diving, water skiing
