A lovely villa in quiet surroundings. Every thing was clean and tidy on arrival with a brilliant welcome pack. The accommodation is spacious and breakfast on the roof in the morning sun was beautiful. The villa was well equipped- nice to take little washing home! Any problems- of which there were few! - were dealt with very swiftly and professionally. Booking was easy and deposit returned swiftly. Places to visit- Agios Georgias. Laatchi. Coral bay. Plenty of good local restaurants- Savvas Grill. Adriana. We loved our stay in the villa- my second visit and hope it is not the last.
Just returned from a fabulous family holiday 14-21st October. Everything was better than we could have hoped for, peaceful, comfortable surroundings. Well equipped villa, spotlessly clean. Lovely garden and pool. Loved the roof terrace. Welcome pack was great as we arrived early hours, Warren and Gill have thought of everything. Plenty of room for 5 of us to have our own space. Would recommend a hire car to see the surrounding areas. We have stayed in Cyprus many times but this has been the best. We will definitely be back.
The Villa itself was absolutely fantastic, so much more than we were expecting. The views are incredible, the pool catches the sun from sun up until sun down, and it's only a short drive away from literally everything. The inside decor is really fitting, and the place generally is just something you have to see to understand how much work they've put into it.
We encountered some problems during our visit, namely the BBQ wasn't working, kettle tripping the electricity, and living room AC leaking. All of which were swiftly seen to and rectified within either that same day, or the following.
When we return to Cyprus (and we will very soon I'm sure of it), Villa St Helena is the place to return too.
Villa St Helena is the most fantastic villa, in a great location, it really is a home from home fully equipped to make your stay perfect! The main village Peyia is a short walk (uphill) where there are a few nice places to eat, our favourite here was Savva's Grill, the Greek night was great fun (you must book in advance). Coral Bay is a 5 minute and Paphos just over 10 minute drive. Warren and Gill (the owners) were from our initial enquiry regarding booking the villa to retuning home were extremely helpful, nothing was to much trouble, their recommendations from car hire, restaurants, supermarkets and days out were invaluable, and made our holiday!
Places to eat:
Oniro's by the Sea - Beautiful setting - Amazing food - Awesome Cocktails - Best place we ate! (although slightly more expensive than other restaurants but worth it!)
The Last Castle - Beautiful setting view for miles! great BBQ food - reasonably priced!
Samisan Japanese Restaurant - Terrific entertainment and tasty food (must book in advance)
Savvas Grill Peyia - Book in advance for the Green night!
Paphos Zoo, Coral Bay Beach, Troodos Mountains ( a long journey but worth it!)
Car hire recommended, however we did use a local taxi firm (details at the villa) trips to Coral Bay and Oniros by the sea were 12 euros each way (8 seat car)
absolutely blown away by the villa! we stayed for two weeks and the place became home from home within a few days, made easier by all the lovely amenities! we've stayed in Peyia before and would highly recommend staying here to anyone; the village really gives you an insight into true Cypriot life and is a nice escape from the hustle and bustle of the more touristy areas. The villa itself is beautiful, particularly loved the outdoor space which felt very private and secluded. All in all had a wonderful holiday and would highly reccomend this villa to anyone looking for an equally lovely time!!
Wow loved this villa!! Their set up is by far the best we've ever had. A welcome pack on arrival, a selection of items you can use & just replace if empty, water cooler to name a few of the home comforts. Beautiful villa & outdoor space. It doesn't seem like a business they really have travellers in mind. Your within a 10 min drive to anywhere really, village has a lovely restaurants & for a livelier night head to coral bay. Recommend a drive to latchi marina for peaceful meal, molos is fabulous, roughly a 20 min drive.
Thank you Jill, warren & gill, it's been a pleasure, we hope to return one day x
