A Great Base.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fortnight at Villa Harmonia, September 2017 with our 20 year old son. Arriving very late we were grateful for the relatively short drive from Paphos Airport. The villa is situated on the edge of a village in the hills above Paphos. It’s only a few miles out of Paphos, but the location is peaceful and there’s a lovely view to wake up to every morning. The village of Marathounta has a friendly, relaxed little taverna only a short walk from the villa. The menu isn't extensive, but everything we ordered was well prepared, tasty and good value for money. Paphos has several modern supermarkets that are easy to use. The closest and one of the most modern is very near the point where you enter Paphos from Marathounta.

There’s plenty to see and do in Paphos and further afield in southern Cyprus. The 10 minute drive from the villa to the roundabout at the end of the main motorway makes this an excellent location for exploring Cyprus. We had day trips to Nicosia, Mount Olympus, Kykkos Monastery, Kourium and the north coast around Latchi.

There are plenty of good and reasonable places to eat out in Cyprus (especially in Kouklia and Latchi), but we also made good use of the gas barbecue at the villa to cook some memorable evening meals. We liked the fact the villa was so clean and tidy when we arrived and it was well enough equipped to meet all our needs. The air conditioning was very useful at bedtime when we could rapidly cool the bedrooms to get a goodnight’s sleep. During the heat of the day, the swimming pool provided an excellent means of cooling down. For a change in a holiday house, the Internet connection was very good.

If you want a peaceful retreat only a short drive from the hustle and bustle of Paphos, you could do worse than stay here. The owners were a pleasure to deal with and very prompt in answering our emails, and with good advise on topics such as car hire. We really enjoyed our all too brief fortnight and we’d love to return before too long.

Quiet, clean, perfect for a family.

  • 5 of 5

Communication via e-mail with the owners was good and we got lots of information about the property and how to get there before we arrived. We loved the very well equipped kitchen as we all love to cook. The house was clean and exactly as pictured.

We couldn't manage to tune the TV, but the DVD collection saved the day :-)

Also we bought some firewood the second night because it was really chilly and made a fire in the fireplace, which was fantastic!

Pool was nice but still a bit chilly in April, although our 9 year old daughter couldn't resist and went in anyway. Also it only takes about 10 minutes to reach paphos downtown by car so you can easily go to the beach, the harbour or to restaurants all about a 15 minute drive and easy to find.

A very nice place for a family to stay, I highly recommend it.

Peaceful hideaway

  • 5 of 5

just come back from a 2 weeks stay in Villa Harmonia,. The villa has everything you need for a quite peaceful holiday located 10 mins up the hill from Paphos, a car is a necessity, but is an aid for getting around to see the many sites and beaches around Paphos.If you want to visit Paphos for the evening there are a few very good taxi services, I being Steve:s taxis,

The pool is situated right next to the villa, it was always very clean, watching the swifts diving for a drink in the early evening was a pleasure to watch.

We used the BBQ a couple of times, is was very easy to use.

Would defiantly return to the villa again

Fantastic villa - Peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks in Villa Harmonia in September and had a very relaxing and fantastic holiday. The area is very peaceful and the locals living in Marathounta are very friendly.

The villa is excellent with all the facilities you could need for a good holiday.

The welcome pack with food basics was very much appreciated as we arrived late in the evening.

Air conditioning was very efficient and the large veranda with the views and BBQ was fantastic for al fresco dining in the warm and dark evenings.

The shared pool was not a problem at all as the couple next door only used it two or three time during our stay.

The villa was more than big enough for a couple and we did not use the second floor at all as the master bedroom is located in the ground floor.

A rental car is recommended as the villa is located in the hills approx. 10 minutes from Paphos with all the services needed.

We found many good restaurants in Paphos but would especially recommend Laona in the old town between the Police station and the market place. They served by far the best Cypriot food we tasted for lunch and dinner and the service was superb.

The owners of Villa Harmonia, Jackie & Mark have been very helpful from the first contact we had.

Everything was up to our expectations and we would recommend this villa to everyone.

Villa Harmonia - Maranthouda

  • 5 of 5

Lovely villa with everything you could need.

Thank goodness for the air-con as it was very hot in August in Cyprus!

Thoughtful welcome pack on arrival with food basics to see you through a couple of days, there was also tea bags/coffee/salt and a few essentials in the cupboards.

Books and games and DVD's/CD's in the living room in case you just wanted to stay in.

We enjoyed the pool and loungers, we didn't share this with anyone else as the neighbours were away. Pool did get dirty with insects so we did have to clean it daily with the net.

Very quiet area with only a bit of noise from neighbouring villas.

Paphos only 12 mins drive with lovely restaurants/bars and boat rides. Leave time to see the mosaics in the harbour as they are quite interesting.

We did the day-trip to Cairo through a local car-hire firm, worth every penny!

Probably would not return to this area of Cyprus as the beaches are not lovely, but we had a very relaxing holiday and would not hesitate to recommend the villa.

Great vila !

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here 2 year ago in August and we thought it was so great we have re-booked for July/August this year. The vila has all the facilities that you could want.

There was 4 of us and we also took my mum and dad, the vila was plenty big enough for all !

The beds were comfortable, the kitchen well equipt. There is a large BBQ that is very handy, as with the Euro not being so good against the pound eating in works very well, especily with kids.

The pool was lovely and warm and kept very clean, i think the guy up the road in the next house comes down to clean it of an evening.

Marathounta is a traditional Cypriot village where the locals still welcome newcomers with big smiles and open arms, and you will find the local traditions and old ways still very much in evidence here. Villa Harmonia is ideally situated, on a small private development of just five properties, only 8km from Paphos centre and offers peaceful, relaxed rural living for both couples and families alike. Marathounta has a lovely taverna, 'The Old School House', serving traditional fayre, and is only a 5 minute stroll from the villa. There are a couple of small village stores located on the main road up to Marathounta for your basic needs and a large hypermarket on the main roundabout towards Kato Paphos. Despite the rural beauty and tranquillity of Marathounta, all the local amenities of Paphos town, the golden sandy beach of Coral Bay, the ancient/historical sites and picturesque Paphos Harbour are all just a short drive away. For the golfing enthusiast there are 3 championship courses all within a 20 minute drive. With the nearest being Minthis Hills, only 10 minutes away.

Other Activities: Aphrodite Water Park, Mini Golf, Skiing in the Winter months.
