The free form private swimming pool is gated so ideal for children. A pool shower, sunbeds and an umbrella are available. Climbing an external spiral staircase leads to a roof terrace with picnic table where you have panoramic views of the mountains, Akamas region and all the way down to the sea.
In the northwest corner of the island numerous villages are hidden away in the hills behind the bay of Polis Chrysochous. If you would like to experience a more authentic side of Cyprus then these are the places to head to. Just about every one of these villages has a small village store for basic provisions and the requisite ‘kafenion' where locals gather to socialize and chat covering everything from village gossip to political discussions over thick, strong coffee and maybe a game of backgammon, but that is about as lively as it gets, as the emphasis on a stay in these villages is rest and relaxation.
Peristerona is one such village. The kafenion and village store are approximately 500 metres from the villa, with a larger supermarket being found in the neighbouring village of Skoulli approximately 5.3 kms away. Small tavernas serving simple village dishes are found in the neighbouring villages of Lysos and Steni both within 3.5 kms of the villa.
Just because you prefer to stay inland doesn't mean you have to miss out on the beach experience. The coastal resorts of Polis and Latchi are both within 12 kilometres of the villa and both feature coarse sand and shingle beaches with sunbeds and umbrellas for hire and restaurants/snack bars providing refreshments. If you prefer a more remote option then venture a little further along the coast to the natural stretch of coarse sand, shingle and pebble that runs along the Argaka shoreline. For a day here you will need to bring your own beach mat and umbrella, refreshments can be found at one of the handful of tavernas scattered along the coastal road or you can take a cool box and lunch under the shade of the trees in one of the designated picnic areas.
Polis the principal town for this region huddles around a pedestrianised square, a great place to browse the many shops, enjoy a coffee while watching the world pass by or dine at any of the wide selection of restaurants, tavernas and cafes which radiate out from the centre.
The seaside resort of Latchi, with its well known sea food tavernas is only a few minutes drive from Polis, and here you will find an array of inviting sea-front tavernas with a superb selection of fresh fish and seafood served daily.
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 centres and museums, galleries, Churches and wineries with free wine tasting!
Polis and the surrounding villages count bowling, go-karting, fishing, cycling, watersports and scuba diving amongst the many activities on offer to visitors. The Minthis Hills Golf Course is just under a 30 minute drive away whilst the town of Paphos with its World Heritage Sites, modern shopping facilities, waterpark, Paphos Zoo and attractive harbour area is within a 40 minute drive.
There are 4 golf courses; Tsada Golf Course, Secret Valley Golf Course, Aphrodite Hills Golf Course and Elea Golf Course all within approximately a 20 minute to 1 hour drive.
