Stay at Spilio Villa, Cyprus
Prices from £795pp. Includes return flights, transfers and 7 nights self catering accommodation.
Although just a short 10 minute drive from the centre of Paphos, and a further 5 minutes from the harbour, the peaceful hamlet of Anavargos retains the feel, sights and sounds of a traditional Cypriot village. This village house has extensive views southwards towards Paphos and the sea beyond. To the east, beyond a dry river bed, on rising ground is the village of Konia.
Spilio is tastefully furnished and has a small mature garden leading to the swimming pool with an outside shower. On one side stands the old bread oven, preserved as a feature, now with a barbecue in front. Kept, too, is the original village house, now the long living-room. There is a handy village taverna behind the house but this is low key and should not disturb.
The property is divided into two self-contained units - one on each floor - but is always sold as one property. As such it is ideal for mixed parties who would like to be together but also maintain a degree of independence when desired. It can sleep up to 8 persons, if some are children, and each unit has an air-conditioned bedroom (a double on the ground floor and a twin on the first floor). Double sofa beds are available in the two living rooms of each apartment. Each floor also has a fully fitted kitchen and bathroom - upstairs has a double shower, WC and basin and downstairs is equipped with a bath and shower, WC and basin.
The ground floor has terrace areas in the garden and upstairs has a small balcony off the bedroom and a large double-aspect covered veranda with super views over Paphos and the sea.
