About Brian Heade

Brian was born in Cardiff, Wales and Val in Hampton Court, Surrey. We have been living outside of the UK since 1980, and retired to Cyprus in 2008.

Brian Heade purchased this villa in 2000

Why Brian Heade chose Paphos

We built our main home in 1994, and later had the opportunity to purchase the plot in front of ours. So, we were able to build the holiday home in 2000, two levels below us, which enabled us to save our magnificent views.

What makes this villa unique

The benefit of the home, is that, Brian and Val live above the property for any local advice and problem resolutions. However, we do try to have minimal impact on the guests, and carry out the gardening and pool cleaning facilities when guests are not in residence

Our third visit...

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to Brian and Val's villa; that in itself says a lot!!

I'm not sure that I can come up with enough superlatives to do it justice.

On arrival there was a gorgeous bottle of chilled rosé waiting for us and enough foodstuffs to ensure that we didn't have to go rushing off to the supermarket. *Note... Brian really does make exceedingly good jam (now there's a good catch phrase!)

The villa has everything we could ask for, a real "home from home"; and this year there were a few "updates" including a new mattress for the gigantic bed and a new shower surround. There genuinely is nothing extra that we could ask for.

The garden is so absolutely beautiful (and had a lovely new seating area). The pool is beyond the expectations of a villa this size... its BIG! New parasols around the pool area were a lovely additional to diffuse the bright, hot Cypriot sunshine and make those cold drinks stay cooler a little longer ;)

Yet again car hire was easily arranged with Andy Philips (a good recommendation from Brian & Val) and we even borrowed a jeep for the day to explore the Akamas Peninsula.

Steve and I made it our aim to relax as much as possible during our holiday... and this little villa with its stunning gardens, immense pool... a few cold drinks and a few hands of card games... made that aim an easy pleasure your accomplish.

Looking forward to visiting for the fourth time in 2018.

How soon can we come back??

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 10 days at Brian and Val's villa and oh my goodness... We would move there right now if we could. The place is fantastic, we felt at home immediately. It is the perfect size for a couple, and has everything you need. The bed was very, very comfortable and huge! The place is also very clean. Brian and Val live in another (separate) villa, just above ours. They pop around when needed, or to look after the garden and are not intrusive at all. Although both villas share the same swimming pool, they left it to us 100%. They invited us to their place for a few drinks, and it was lovely to get to know them. Listen to the places they suggest you to go to, they are worth it! The villa is in a very quiet place and about 15 min from Paphos by car. Renting is definitely the best thing to do to visit the island and get around easily. There are some food stores within 10 min drive. There is no wifi in the villa. If you need some, you need to get closer to Brian and Val's villa to pick it up. It did not bother us as we were quite happy cutting off from the real world. You get free roaming data in EU now, but the network at the villa itself is quite weak as they are a bit high in altitude. The garden is simply beautiful, even just staying by the pool was perfect. Go there and give yourself some fantastic holiday memories, we will again as soon as we can. Thank you for having us!! Mahéva and Paul xx

Eine herrliche Woche

  • 5 of 5

Es war eine herrliche Woche in Val's und Brian's Gästehaus: die Lage perfekt, um den Westen der Insel zu erkunden, das Haus und das gesamte Grundstück so geschmackvoll gestaltet, dass wir uns täglich aufs Heimkommen freuten. Es war heiß - aber geschickt verteilte Sitzecken im liebevoll angelegten Garten lassen stets einen schattigen Platz finden , und der große, sehr gepflegte Pool macht auch die größte Septemberhitze erträglich. Nicht zuletzt ein Lob für die perfekt eingerichtete Küche, die nicht nur zum Teebereiten gedacht ist, sondern auch richtiges Kochen ermöglicht. Danke, Val und Brian, für eine wunderschöne Woche!

Owner's Response: Many thanks to Peter and Christina for a glowing review, and we hope that they return some time in the future. For those of you that do not understand German, I have used the wonders of the Internet to translate their comments into English A wonderful week ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ It was a wonderful week at Val's and Brian's Guesthouse: the perfect location to explore the West of the island, the house and the entire property so tastefully designed that we were delighted every day to come home. It was hot - but cleverly distributed seats in the lovingly landscaped garden always leave a shady place, and the large, very well-kept pool makes the largest September heat bearable. Not least a praise for the perfectly equipped kitchen, which is not only intended for tea making, but also allows proper cooking. Thank you, Val and Brian, for a wonderful week!

Tranquil holiday in lovely surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We arrived middle of the afternoon using the directions supplied which were very easy and accurate.

We were absolutely delighted with this beautiful villa ,the inside is lovely and clean with all the mod cons you could wish for .

tv with satellite channels ,DVD player with plenty of dvds to watch,stereo again with cds to play

It was obvious the Brian &Val are trying very hard to make our stay as enjoyable as possible and on that note they are succeeding in spades.

We settled in and enjoyed a very nice bottle of red kindly supplied as part of the welcome package ,Brian & Val came and introduced themselves and told us all we needed to know about the villa and the local shops ect ,

The gardens are full of colours and smells from well planted beds and boarders ,again immaculately cared for .next stop the pool wow ,for a small villa to have such a fantastic pool both in size and how clean it is kept is a huge plus ,plenty of seating areas in both sunny and shaded parts of the garden,sun loungers and plenty of sun umbrellas to use if needed around the pool side .

I cannot express enough the attention to detail Brian & Val put into this villa,all this said my wife and I had such a relaxing time we have already booked a return trip back ,all I can say is read all the reviews ,they all say the same thing great villa , great time ,great holiday

An idyllic villa with wonderful owners

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a week and half in between moving home to get some much needed peace and quite, relaxation, and sunshine. This villa hit the spot perfectly. It is clean and very spacious for 2 adults, with a lovely large pool, plenty of places to relax in the sunshine around the pool or in the gardens, with areas to eat dinner and BBQ outside too. The villa is located in small and very quiet residential area/village and is a short walk from an excellent traditional Greek Cypriot taverna that we ate and drank at on several occasions. It is also walking distance to a small village square witha few other restuarants, and is just a 15 min drive to Paphos and local supermarkets. The owners, Brian and Val, live in an adjacent property, and are really friendly, hospitable and knowledgeable on the local area. They clearly take great pride in this villa and in making sure guests have a perfect stay. It happened to be my birthday whilst we were there, and they had phoned ahead to the restaurant that we were eating at and purchased a bottle of wine for us as a gift, which was totally unexepcted but wonderful! I would highly recommend staying here, it's one of the nicest villas we've been to! Thanks Brian and Val!

Peacful and Tranquil

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd stay at Brian and Val's villa and as per the times before it was superb , for us its a great location with restaurants within walking distance . The brewery just over the hill is a great place for a pizza and a pint (or 2) The Villa was very clean and tidy as usual with everything we needed . Brian and Val made some new recommendations for drinks / food (Suite 48) which were excellent with great view of Paphos harbour . Brian and Val are great hosts , they make you feel part of the family without been intrusive , all in all a great relaxing holiday and we will be back in 2018 - already booked for May .
