About John & Ann

Hello, we are John and Ann Richards, a retired couple from the UK now living in Paphos, Cyprus. We were successful self-employed hoteliers for over 29 years in the popular holiday resort and fishing village of Whitby in North Yorkshire, UK. and therefore feel we know the hospitality business requirements of our customers expectations. We always endeavor and strive to attain very high standards and services throughout our villa, providing that customer expectation in making your holiday a pleasant and memorable one as possible.

John & Ann purchased this villa in 2004

Why John & Ann chose Yeroskipou

In the year 2001 we decided that Paphos was the place to have built to our own specifications, a spacious detached 3 bedroom holiday villa with full en-suite facilities. We had a private gas heated swimming pool installed and separate deluxe spa hot tub. The villa was completed in March 2004. South facing, the HK villa in Paphos has great sea views over the countryside, with country lanes that lead down to the local Rikko`s beach. From the villa you can enjoy spectacular panoramic sunsets ending the day over Paphos.

The quiet location of our villa is away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist resorts and situated in the small village of Koloni, Yeroskipou, Paphos. Just a short walk from the villa is a small supermarket, a bakers selling fresh bread / cakes and a further short walk takes you into the larger village of Yeroskipou. Here you will find where the Turkish/Cypriot delight is made, the historic 5 domed church, taverns, banks, post office, various local shops selling local produce and a tranquil village square with its fountains to sit, taking in a coffee.

Should you wish to visit Paphos seafront, Paphos harbour Mosaics, Restaurants, Bars and Cafe`s, you can catch either the local bus outside the supermarket or take a scenic 5 minute drive in your rented car.

A short drive will take you to other coastal resorts of Coral Bay, Polis, Latchi, Pissouri, making the villa Hieros Kepos an ideal location.

What makes this villa unique

We love the location and area of our HK villa Paphos - villa Hieros Kepos for many reasons, one being it is South facing, getting sunshine all day long with the superb sea and sunset views. The village location is very restful and private with inspiring views over the sea and surrounding countryside, yet within easy access to all the tourist area`s. When staying at the HK villa Paphos, villa Hieros Kepos, you can put on your summer holiday attire first thing in the morning, have your breakfast on the sunshine terrace, check your emails using the free wifi, then be in the private heated 8m x 4m swimming pool having your first dip of the day. Then relax enjoying the fantastic panoramic views to the sea, use the swing hammock reading your book of the day or just take in the sunshine on the sunbeds. What a great way to spend your day.

In the evenings, fire up the large gas BBQ with its hood oven or use the local charcoal BBQ and enjoy alfresco fresh Cypriot foods for dining with a glass or two of local wines. Now the stars are coming out in the blackened sky, take a spa hot tub dip and relax those muscles before retiring for the day into the villas comfortable large double bedrooms.

Tomorrow you might wish go further afield and see some of the historic Cypriot sites in and around Paphos, or maybe just relax again around the villa and its swimming pool. The choice is always yours.

Guestbook comments from the owner

5 STARS: Well equipped and maintained, spacious, clean and a great view.

Left on Jun 20, 2018 for a stay in Jun 2018

We chose this villa primarily because of its location between Paphos and the airport. It is set up high overlooking open ground with panoramic views towards the sea. The villa has plenty of space for three couples and is comfortable and well equipped. John & Ann were very helpful and efficient and kept the villa looking immaculate, including cleaning the pool and hot tub every 3 days which were excellent. The villa is at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac with both on-road and on-drive parking. A hire car is pretty essential but a well stocked supermarket and a good taverna are a short walk away. Paphos is a good base from which to visit much of the western part of Cyprus including Akamas, Polis, Troodos and a multitude of interesting villages.

The private swimming pool has a charge for gas supply should you require the pool heated. A large veranda off the open plan lounge has a swing hammock offering great sea views to relax those evenings away. Car hire is not essential as the property is within walking distance to local and Geroskipou shops, banks with local bus service into Paphos. We do advise car rental to visit the many tourist attractions in Cyprus. The villa is South facing and has sunshine all day with fantastic sunsets in the evening. Gardens to the front of the property with fruit trees, to the sides of the property we have high hedging giving privacy. The lounge and dining area has floor to ceiling patio window doors offering great sea views, leading to the covered veranda having a swing hammock overlooking the sun patio area with the private 8m x 4m pool, spa hot tub, bbq`s and an outside shower for use before and after bathing. Also on the sun patio is a table, 8 chairs and parasol, 8 sun beds with side tables and parasols, a mobile gas bbq with oven lid and the traditional Cyprus charcoal bbq. Another casual table and chairs is sited more in the shaded area of the villa kitchen. Totally uninterrupted sea views down over the countryside to Geroskipou beach and Paphos sea front. A separate laundry room with modern washing machine, an ironing board with iron, a digital security safe and cleaning utensil cupboards. Bed linen and towel changeover is weekly with twice weekly service to the pool and hot tub. All bed linen and bathroom towels are provided. A free generous welcome pack is provided on arrival

For us the villa is in the perfect location, easy to find from directions supplied, short drive from airport and/or in to Pathos, Taverna in walking distance, supermarket a couple of minutes drive. It is situated in a quiet residential street, and is very peaceful and quiet. We hired a car but you could survive on taxi's/local transport from the main road, although Pathos too far to walk. John and Ann are lovely, genuine people who do all they can to make sure the villa is perfect and that you enjoy your stay. they met us at the villa to show us round and were on call the whole time we were there should we need anything, and although we didn't, it was reassuring to know. The villa is spotless, immaculately kept and fully kitted out with everything you could need. Didnt go on holiday to watch TV, but as the world cup was on, it was handy to have all the UK and freeview channels. DVD player was also handy for nights in. the Pool and Hot tub are spotless and amazing, the outside space is also well kept and spacious. All 3 double bedrooms have on suit toilets and showers, the main bedroom also has a bath. Our favourite place to sit in the evening was the bedroom balcony overlooking the villages and the sea and looking at the big starry sky. Cant report much on local beaches as we didnt bother, but Pathos harbour and town have a nice feel to them. We found it handy having a car, pathos is too far to walk but there are local buses and of course taxi's. If you do hire a car, the roads are better than ours and driving on the same side as us makes getting around very easy. A handy base if you do want to do some exploring. All in all cannot praise the place and John and Ann's efforts enough and we will definitely be returning should we want a villa holiday in Cyprus again. Thanks John and Ann for you local knowledge and tips, and for making our holiday so trouble free by ensuring the villa is 100% immaculate.Best Villa Holiday ever, relaxing, peaceful and luxurious! Louise and Dave.

Look no Further. This Villa is Magic.

The title I placed says it all. We have had a wonderful twelve days at the Villa Hieros Kepos in a small village called Koloni which is very close to Geroskipou and only a five minutes drive into Paphos front where you find all the tourist places with cafe`s, bars, restaurants, hotels, not for us though. Ann and John were so helpful and offered us a warm, friendly welcome to their villa in Paphos. They showed us around the villa and explained where everything was and answered our questions. The bedrooms have there own bathrooms with balcony. The beds were very comfortable. The lounge and dining area`s were spacious, lovely and clean. John arranged for our requested car hire and the free transfers went smoothly. It was a great holiday. I can't fault the Villa Hieros Kepos in anyway at all and hope to return again next year.

Total relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

John & Ann, we just got back from Paphos in Cyprus this Saturday and had to let you know that we had an absolutely wonderful ten days holiday in your Villa Hieros Kepos. The villas accommodation was absolutely first class through out, very comfortable with everything provided for. You and Ann could not have been more helpful during our short stay. The very clean pool, the spa hot tub and both bbq were divine, so much so we never ventured too far from the villa. You are both excellent assets to your business and you obviously take great pride in your property. Your efforts to make sure that your guests are comfortable and have everything they need is clear to see. John & Jill. Scarborough. Yorkshire.

Coastal with great Sea Views:

HK Villa Paphos, the villa Hieros Kepos is situated in the small villa Koloni very close to the village of Yeroskipou. The local Yeroskipou beach, also known as Rikkos beach, is on Paphos seafront and is approximately 4 minutes drive or a gentle 50 minutes walk from the villa Hieros Kepos, through the lanes of orange and lemon groves, leading to the sea front and beaches. Paphos seafront, fort castle, harbour and tourist resort is approximately 6 minutes drive from the villa with Coral Bay resort just 15 minutes drive away.


Paphos International airport is approximately 12k, a 12 minutes drive from the villa.

Larnaca International airport is approximately 100k, a 50 / 60 minutes drive from the villa.

Car hire is recommended and can be arranged for you with free airport transfers included.

The nearest sea port is in Limassol, some 30 minutes drive from the villa.

Paphos seafront, the Roman villa mosaics, fishing harbour, castle and Tombs of the Kings are 10 minutes drive from the villa.

Coral Bay resort is 15 minutes drive from the villa. The National park of Akamas peninsula where you find breeding turtles and Cyprus wild life is approximately 25 minutes drive from the villa.

Polis resort is a 40 minute drive through beautiful countryside.

Further Details:

The detached HK villa Paphos is ideally situated in the small village of Koloni, very close to Yeroskipou village in the Paphos region. Amenities include a local supermarket, on the premises bakers for fresh breads and local cakes, a post office, banks, various bars and tavernas, all within walking distance of the villa Hieros Kepos. We do recommend hiring a car though to visit many historic places of interest on the Island of Cyprus.

Places to visit in the Paphos region:

Polis village is 10 miles Nortth of Paphos and still a relatively unspoilt part of Paphos with its local tavernas and shops. It still retains a more relaxed way of life even today.

Latchi, the other main town in this area of Polis. Again there are a few shops here for tourists, and a number of traditional tavernas and restaurants, all of which are next to the beach and boat quay. For those looking for water sports Latchi has a water sports centre, where you can hire a boat or even go diving.

Petra Tou Romiou (Birthplace of Aphrodite) - 25 km east of Paphos. According to legend, Aphrodite, goddess of love and beauty, rose from the waves in this strikingly beautiful spot. The Greek name, Petra tou Romiou (The Rock of the Greek), is associated with the legendary frontier-guard of Byzantine times, Dighenis Akritas, who kept the marauding Saracens at bay with amazing strength. It is said in one such fight he heaved a large rock (Petra) at his enemy.

Yeroskipou Folk Art Museum. The name of the village comes from the Greek word "Hieroskepos", the sacred Garden of Aphrodite. A fascinating collection of Cyprus folk arts and crafts is gathered together in the house known as Hadjismith.

Yeroskipou village has the Ayia Paraskevi Church, 3 km east of Paphos. One of the most interesting and attractive Byzantine churches on the island, dating to the 10th century, with a vaulted basilica, a nave and two aisles surmounted by five domes, with later frescoes dating to the 15th century.

Kouklia village is the Temple Of Aphrodite, 14 km east of Paphos. This is Palaepaphos, Old Paphos, one of the most celebrated places of pilgrimage of the ancient Greek world and once an ancient city kingdom of Cyprus. Here you will find the ruins of the famous Temple of Aphrodite. The most ancient remains date back to the 12th century B.C. The temple was one of the most important places of cult and pilgrimage of the ancient world until the 3rd-4th century A.D. The museum in the Lusignan Manor is small but impressive with many finds from the area.

Ayios Neophytos Monastery – Located 9 km north of Paphos. It was founded in around 1200 by the Cypriot hermit and writer Neophytos. The Encleistra or enclosure carved out of the mountain by the hermit contains some of the finest Byzantine frescoes dating from the 12th to 15th century. In the monastery's church there is an interesting collection of icons and remains of 16th century frescoes.

Chrysoroyiatissa Monastery – Located 40 km north-east of Paphos. Turn right before Stroumbi village and you will find the monastry set in beautiful surroundings. It is dedicated to Our Lady of the Golden Pomegranate and was originally founded in the 12th century but the present building dates to 1770. An impressive religious ceremony and celebrations are held on 15th August.
