'The Retreat Villa' is situated in the pretty village area of Peristerona near Polis in Paphos district. Accessed by private driveway (between the fruit orchards) into the extensive and secluded private grounds, this impressive stone built detached villa has everything you need to enjoy a relaxing holiday in the Cyprus sunshine.

It has 4 bedrooms (en-suite to master with jacuzzi shower) and sleeps 8. It has a 12m x 6m private swimming pool with Roman steps, full air-conditioning, large flat screen TV with Xbox, satellite & DVD (TVs in all bedrooms also), washing machine, dishwasher, large stone built BBQ with adjacent table to seat 8, a circular shaded bar area, jacuzzi shower to master en-suite, jacuzzi bath in main bathroom and much more.

The setting is both serene and spectacular with the rolling hills of the nearby villages giving views you'll remember forever.

Details of the Interior:

After accessing the villa's grounds by long driveway (plenty parking), the villa's front door opens into a large airy open plan space comprising the lounge, inside dining area and kitchen. The lounge is furnished with 2 large real leather sofas & has a large flat screen TV with XBox, Satellite & DVD player. There is an open fire for those who wish to take advantage of some daytime sunshine and a cosy evening atmosphere in cooler winter months.

The adjacent dining/breakfasting area is equipped with a wooden table and eight chairs. The fully equipped kitchen has all modern appliances including washing machine, dishwasher, large fridge/freezer, oven, gas hob and extractor hood, microwave and many other extras. Patio doors from the dining area open out onto the beautifully kept lawn area with play equipment for young children. A terrace with table a chairs overlooks and is an alternative setting for casual or formal dining. A door from the kitchen leads out to the villa's private pool.

Interior Cont: Making up the ground floor is a twin bedroom (useful for those with mobility issues) and an en-suite shower room with 2 access doors (as it doubles up as WC)

Upstairs, the master bedroom is a double bedroom that benefits from a balcony, wardrobes, dressing table/mirror and an en-suite bathroom with jacuzzi shower.

The second bedroom is a double bedroom and the third is a twin. Between the bedrooms is a large bathroom with jacuzzi bath and shower. All bedrooms benefit from wall mounted TVs with satellite controlled by the receiver in the lounge.

The villa is fully air-conditioned (paid locally if required). A travel cot and high chair are supplied free of charge on request. Other extras such as hair-dryer, pool towels, and safety deposit box are also provided.

Details of the Exterior:

The extensive private grounds and gardens of 'The Retreat' in Peristerona are accessed by a long private driveway with fruit orchards on either side.

The centrepiece of the holiday villa's ground is a very inviting 12m x 6m private pool with Roman steps for ease of access. The spacious pool terrace is nicely equipped with 8 large sun loungers that benefit from large overhanging parasols and drinks tables as well as a choice of casual seating. Also on the pool terrace there is a circular bar area with solid wood pergola for shade. A new rattan sofa set has been added for reading in the sun or shade and a similar set has been added to the upstairs balcony also.

Take a step up and sit under a large gazebo with picnic bench to seat 8 comfortably for lunch or dinner. The large stone built BBQ sits at the end making it the perfect place for alfresco dining and socialising with your party on holiday. An outside shower and WC complete the outside areas. Most of the outside areas afford spectacular uninterrupted views of the surrounding valley and hillside. The pretty flowers, shrubs and trees add to the atmosphere.

''The Retreat was “first class” accommodation, well equipped and beautifully maintained with an excellent swimming pool. It has everything you need for a fantastic holiday. The location was idyllic with marvellous 360 degree views and surrounded by well stocked fruit orchards. Very private and not overlooked. We enjoyed a number of fantastic meals at the Pantelis near Skoulli. The owner, Paul, was very friendly and welcoming and the meals were very reasonably priced. The service, as always, from LetsRentOnline.Com was excellent. Always prompt to reply to any queries you may have, making the booking process quick and easy. Many thanks to Steven and his team. The owners Katrina and Dimitris were extremely friendly and helpful and always on hand, should you need them, only a phone call away. We wouldn’t change a thing about “The Retreat” it’s PERFECT!! We will certainly be renting a villa in Cyprus next year, can’t wait. You are welcome to use any of our comments or remarks. Many thanks again Steven, we hope to do business with you again for our holiday in 2018. ''

''The property is beautiful, solid and well-maintained. It has something for everyone whatever the age.

Although it may seem that The Retreat is far from anything, it took us literally only 10 minutes by car to Polis & Latchi and about 40 minutes to Paphos. The beautiful thing about the villa location is the incredible peace and silence of the surroundings.

All the beaches along Latchi are great, some sandy, some rocky - plenty of choice. I took the kids for a short hike through the Akamas park, saw the Baths of Aphrodite and it is worth the the trail for the views. Also, Katerina, the owner, gave us a great address in Polis of a fishmonger - we barbecued freshly caught fish at home almost everyday at a fraction of restaurant prices - it is opposite the pharmacy on the Polis main road.

Also Byron's supermarket at the bottom of the road to the villa - really nice man, good place for basics, ice, charcoal, eggs, etc.

It was painless booking with letsrentonline.com. They were very straightforward, flexible, accommodating and swift to answer any queries. I liked the way they sent little updates before our holiday giving us discounts on various restaurants, car hire and watersports.

The owner we met, Katerina, was so helpful and friendly - came right over whenever we needed anything, brought us an extra air mattress for the kids, brought her son to help our kids set up the Xbox games...above the call of duty! She also has great advice on where to eat. Thank you again''

''Just a note to Thank you for helping with our holiday to Cyprus. It was the best villa we have ever visited in our many years of renting villas in many different countries.Here are our answers to your questions-



The property was amazing in every way. The location was so peaceful. A car is needed but worth it for the location. Top restaurants were 'Old Town Tavern' in Polis & Faros in Latchi. Service provided by Let's Rent Online was perfect from start to finish. Local manager/owner Katrina was always on hand whenever we needed her.

We don't think improvement with anything is needed as all was perfect. ''

Both Peristerona and ‘Steni' village centres are just 1-2km away from 'The Retreat' and where you will find a taste of the 'Real Cyprus'. With their mini-markets selling fresh organic produce, coffee shops and restaurants/tavernas as well as the friendly locals, you won't have to travel far to get the most out of your holiday.

Slightly further afield, you will find further amenities such as larger supermarkets, pharmacy, petrol station, and the more extensive choice of bars, restaurants, shops etc in Polis (8km). The nearest beach is at Latchi (12km) which is well known as one of the best on the island. You can relax and sun-bathe on the golden sand by the crystal clear waters, sit in the marina and enjoy lunch eating the day's fresh catch or for the more adventurous there is a great choice of water sports available for all the family.

Golf: Please ask us for golf information. 4 courses in easy driving distance.

Ski: Skiing at Troodos- 50km.

Outstanding in every way

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful, solid and well-maintained. It has something for everyone whatever the age. We were 5 adults with five kids ranging in age from 2 to 10 and they were all catered for.

Although it may seem that The Retreat is far from anything, it took us literally only 10 minutes by car to Polis & Latchi and 40 minutes to Paphos. The beautiful thing about the villa location is the incredible peace and silence of the surroundings.

All the beaches along Latchi are great, some sandy, some rocky - plenty of choice. I took the older kids for a short hike through the Akamas park, saw the Baths of Aphrodite and it is worth the trail for the views.

Also Byron's supermarket at the bottom of the road to the villa - really nice man, good place for basics, ice, charcoal, milk, eggs, etc.

It was painless booking online with HomeAway. They were very straightforward, flexible, accommodating and swift to answer any queries. I liked the way they sent little updates before our holiday giving us discounts on various restaurants, car hire and watersports.

The owner we met, Katerina, was so helpful and friendly - came right over whenever we needed anything, brought us an extra air mattress for the kids, brought her son to help our kids set up the Xbox - all beyond the call of duty! She also has great advice on where to eat.

Our week at The Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Arrived fairly late and tired, once we had managed to sort our hire car at the airport and rush to a supermarket to buy some essentials. What a lovely villa The Retreat is. The Villa was immaculate and there was a welcome pack of food including bread, spread, cheese, ham, milk, water, coffee, tea and sugar. There was also a huge bowl of fruit and some much-appreciated wine.

On seeing the villa in the daylight the following day we were not disappointed, the views were stunning and the sunbathing area and swimming pool were just as shown on all the websites.

When there was a problem with the TV not working and the safe being locked, Katherina and Dimitri couldn't have been more helpful and came out straight away to sort out any problem.

The villages of Polis and Latchi are very close and the beach at Polis was very quiet with a cafe and toilets. Latchi seems to be an up and coming village/town and the harbour area is lovely - when you find it! Great meal in Faros, Latchi - look out for the waiter with the unusual accent and try to work out where he is from! Agios Georgios is pretty for a visit and a quiet sit on the harbour.

Would advise you avoid the mountain roads unless you are very brave and certainly if it is dark - what a scary experience that was, dirt tracks (with occasional road signs) on the road out of Pomos!

We had lovely weather too with cloud on only one day and it was the end of October.

Would thoroughly recommend The Retreat as a break away from it all. Many thanks to the owners for this lovely villa and ensuring we had a restful holiday.
