Beautiful Property in tranquil location.

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of friends traveling to Cyprus together. 3 families with children aged 3 to 8. We were 6 adults and 5 children staying at Villa Stephanie for 1 week.

The villa is situated in a beautiful and picturesque quiet area. It was very easy to find with the simple directions provided by Katerina. Katerina and her husband were very accomodating making our stay even more pleasant, attending to all our needs immediately. The Villa is wonderful. It was spacious and catered for everything we needed. The children had a wonderful time playing in the pool and playground. They also had a large selection of toys to play with that were available in the house.

We enjoyed the villa so much that we ended up staying indoors for 2 days of our 7 day trip just to enjoy the property. We truly recommend Villa Stephanie and will surely be back soon.

An Exceptional Villa in a fantastic location.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fortnights stay at the Villa Stephanie which offers exceptional facilities and wonderful views in a more rural location. That being said we were only 15 minutes away from Polis and 25 from Pafos.

The village of Simou is only a couple of miles away as are number of local restaurants/tavernas offering a good variety of menus.

Speaking of the villa itself, what more could one ask for? Four double bedrooms, all ensuite, and a number of reception rooms where you could relax and spend some peaceful time on your own if you wanted to.

Outside the facilities were just as good, if not better...... A good sized pool, which George prides himself in maintaining to the highest possible standards, and which we couldn't fault. A shallow end for the younger guests and plenty of space around the pool for sun loungers ,etc.

The gardens were a delight and the veranda was a welcome shaded area during the hottest part of the day.

A large balacony on the first floor which gives breathtaking views of the area and the opportunity to view spectacular sunrises and sunsets.

The Villa was equipped to an exceptional standard and you really do have everything that you might need... a real home from home.

The photographs do not really do the Villa justice and I would suggest that George and Katerina update the photos to show your fantastic villa in its true glory.

We enjoyed our stay at Villa Stephanie and hopefully will return in the near future. Thank you George & Katerina.

Lovely villa in beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful two week stay at Villa Stephanie, we were a party of four adults. The villa is huge and laid out well and has everything you need for a self catering holiday. We spent most of our time on the veranda or by the pool, soaking up the sun and the lovely scenery.

It is a bit off the beaten track but we loved the peace and quiet, and it is only a 20 minute drive into Polis where you can stock up on all the essentials you need. Simou is a lovely little village with a very nice village square and a couple of taverna's.

The booking process was very easy and Katrina was always on hand to answer any questions. She left a welcome pack of bread, milk, water, butter ham and cheese which was very helpful as we arrived late in the evening.

I would highly recommend Villa Stephanie to anyone looking for a peaceful holiday in lovely surroundings and all the facilities you need for a fantastic holiday.

We hope to go back again sometime in the future.

Very nice villa, well situated

  • 5 of 5

We have a wonderful week, in aug2016, in that beautiful villa. We were 4 adults + 4 children.

Katerina & George are very welcoming, helpful and always ready to answer our questions & requests.

The villa has very good and complete furniture, including the external with many pool chairs and even inflatable toys that the children very very happy to play with.

The villa is perfectly located (for what we were looking for): isolated and very calm is a small village, with beatifull view. But only ~15min from big supermarket & all facilities in the small town of Polis.

There are also some nice & typical taverns in the villages all around (we particularly recommend Yanis's Tavern in Kathikas)

The beach in the area of Polis is very nice, clean and calm (even in aug, not many tourist).

We did some nice treck around: the Aphrodite Trail & the Avakas Gorges.

Paphos is ~40min aways and worth a day trip

Overall, we were very happy of our vacation and I'm happy to recommend the villa.

This luxury resort is situated in the beautiful village Simou near the small river Skarfos with the beautiful old bridge that take place in most of the post cards for Paphos villages. The villa is between Paphos town and Polis Chrysochous. You need just 20’ driving from Paphos town and less than 15’ for Polis Chrysochous Bay . If you would like to experience a more authentic side of Cyprus then these are the places to head to.

Near the villas there is a very good traditional Cypriot tavern and in the village center there are some small traditional Coffee shops (which once per week they provide food) and a small supermarket. Very near the villa there is the famous traditional watermill bakery with fresh bread and other products every day. Also on it there is the best traditional Cyprus tavern that you ever visit. There are more taverns, restaurants and supermarket in less than 10’ driving in nearby villages and towns.

The majestic crystal-clear water conditions are ideal for life by the sea, The Akamas offers one of the best spots for sailing, fishing and scuba diving in the Mediterranean. Amazing mountain bike trails and hiking allows you to experience the area to the fullest. The area is renowned for its cultural programmers’ which include traditional Cypriot festivals, music and arts events held throughout the year. There is also a golf course that is only a 15 minute drive away from the resort.

The pretty harbor of Latchi and the bustling center of Polis, with their well known sea food taverns, are just in a 15 minutes drive away and you will find an array of inviting sea-front taverns with a superb selection of fresh fish and seafood served daily.

You will find many good restaurants, bars, cafes, shops, banks, post office, children’s play centers, go-carting, water-sports, diving beaches, everything required to satisfy every taste.

Beyond Latchi you will find the well known 'Baths of Aphrodite' and for the more adventurous explorer the protected Akamas Peninsular with its many walking trails. Take the time to explore some of the villages off the beaten path where you'll discover such delights as village cultural centers and museums, galleries, Churches and wineries with free wine tasting


Situated in close proximity to Drymou is the village of Simou with its 250 inhabitants, including about twenty non-Cypriot families. Paphos is 30kms away and in the opposite direction Polis is 12kms away. At 500 meters above sea level, there is little, if any, humidity in Simou.

There are two restaurants/taverns in Simou, one bakery in front of the village, one supermarket and three coffee shops. The coffee shops are all located in the pleasant village center.

The village square resurfacing the last years and it finished in stone, in keeping with the tradition of the village.

There is a village nursery catering for 3-6 year olds and an infants’ school for the 6-12 years old. After that, the nearest secondary school is in Polemi and children are ferried there by inter-village buses or by their parents. The closest police station is a short drive away in Stroumbi and you will find the nearest hospital in the town of Polis. However, a doctor does visit the village every week on Fridays.

If you ever tire of the fantastic sea and mountain views, including the magnificent Table Top Mountain just outside the village, you can always head off to the Evretou Dam just outside the village boundary for a spot of fishing or visit the nearby Tsada golf course. Even closer though, why not see how big a catch you can get from the local river running through Simou?

Simou is home to one of the oldest trees in Cyprus at 1,000 years old – and there are records to prove it. The deciduous Terebinth or Trimithia tree is native to the Mediterranean and is said to have produced the earliest known from of turpentine. In days gone by, the ancient Greeks were said to have used this as medicine.

Also of note is the medieval Skarfos Bridge which was built by the Venetians. It is situated next to the old watermill where the locals used to grind wheat.

Simou has a bit of everything for everybody – peace and quiet, a fantastic location being both close to nature and at the same time within easy distance of all amenities, unique sights and breathtaking views. With its sister village of Drymou, Simou is the perfect setting for your traditional stone-built house or a restoration project.
