About Chris Arrowsmith

We live in a small Worcestershire village with our 2 very spoilt spaniels. We both grew up and went to school in the Midlands. Chris runs his own Metal Finishing Business in Lye and Sue works for the NHS in Shropshire.

Chris Arrowsmith purchased this villa in 2007

Why Chris Arrowsmith chose Kouklia

We have always loved going to Cyprus especially the Paphos area because of the good resturants, access to beaches and all the historically sites. We intend to spend a large chunk of our retirement in Cyprus which is why we brought this villa. It is in the ideal spot for us close to the Golf Courses and local villages but offers peace and quiet which is what we are used to in England and we have a sea view - very important when you live in midlands and are hours from the sea.

What makes this villa unique

We have a large south facing garden so I can spend all day sun-bathing. We look out to see and I love sitting watching the sun go down from the balcony. Our villa is our second home and we have equipped it as such. Having an old 16th Century Cottage at home has given me the freedom to create a modern interior and I really love our red and black lounge and dining room. We both love to cook so the Kitchen has quite a lot of extra equipment/gadgets.
