This was a compromise holiday for us. Some wanted to ski, some wanted to sunbathe and some wanted to visit historic sites. Not only did we do all of those things but we also went on a quad bike safari, horse riding and wine tasting. For all of those things we wanted a comfortable base that we could relax in during the downtime, away from the main tourist beat that gave us easy access to fulfill requirements. This villa was perfect. Verging on the luxurious, it was spacious, comfortable, had a beautiful garden with a stunning pool. This was February so whilst warm enough on a couple of days to sunbathe, we didn't try the pool but just having it there added to the whole ambience. Everywhere we wanted to go was virtually within about 60 minutes with some very good eating places within 20 minutes or so. I would recommend a car. We had breakfast in the Villa and ate in on several nights, the kitchen being well equipped to cope with most requirements. Nearby village (about 10 minutes) had a great little supermarket with lots of fresh local produce. The villa offers you the opportunity of experiencing Cyprus more as a resident than tourist and we loved it. A whole hearted recommendation.
We stayed at this villa for a week in October, and were over the moon with it!
We had the most amazing holiday. The villa was beautiful and very well kept with a very large pool (although water was a bit chilly at this time of year!)
The resort was lovely, and for anyone keen on golf the course at Secret Valley was stunning, and Aphrodite hills even more beautiful.
The sunset from the exit to the complex was beautiful and worth a look!
The location worried us before we arrived but although it isn't central paphos it is not too far out! Only 20/25 mins drive to the town and harbour. A few minutes drive to Aphrodite hills resort which had beautiful restaurants (especially the English pub and Indian).
Would recommend this villa to everyone! Jason was very helpful, and has been a joy to do business with.
This is the third time we have visited Villa Amelea and as always it didn't disappoint. The Villa was quiet, peaceful and relaxing and the new furniture outside on the terrace was great for relaxing during the day in the shade and in the evening. We cannot recommend it enough and we shall be looking again next year.
We stayed for two weeks, 3rd to 17th of September. The villa was exactly what we wanted,and the pool was brilliant. Villa amelea is only about 10 mins from Paphos airport.a car is essential but the roads are easy and very quiet.The villa is ideally placed between Paphos and Limassol,in a very quiet area which was perfect for us. I would highly recommend it.
We rent villas for most years and this was our first trip as a family to Cyprus. Secret Valley is conveniently located close to Paphos and Pissouri Bay but a car is essential as there are no facilities (yet) at Secret Valley.
The villa is lovely and located in a quiet location with a private garden and a massive pool but with ample space for sun beds and relaxing. The villa has all things that are needed and when minor issue arose on day 3 we had someone out later that day to fix the problem having contacted the very helpful owners.
We have two boys (aged 6 and 3) who were very safe and loved the pool but the benefit of areas around the villa that were in the shade to play away from the sun when required.
Definately recommend the villa and nothing seemed to be a problem for the owners.
Luxury detached Villa, Golf Resort, large pool, Secret Valley/Venus Rock Paphos”
I have visited Cyprus many times but this was the first time staying at Venus Rock. The villa itself was very clean and in excellent order. The outside was especially spacious with a beautiful large pool and lots of loungers etc. I found the owners very easy to deal with and any queries were quickly dealt with.
I'd recommend a car if you like getting about a bit if only because there's no supermarket on site although you could easily just laze away the days at the villa tbh. Paphos is around 15 minutes the one way and Pissouri Bay around 15 minutes the other.
I'd highly recommend the villa and would definitely think about staying here again.

We had an amazing stay with the family at Villa Amelea. The area was lovely and quiet. The villa was well equipped and the pool was just perfect. It's totally a must for relaxing and spending some family time by the pool.
