" Our stay at Agios Georgios Villa, was really really lovely. The villa itself has everything that is needed to provide a comfortable, relaxing stay. It has a great feeling of space and is light, airy and very nicely styled. The village of Lysos is a short walk and has a couple of coffee shops where you can buy bread, milk etc. Polis is the nearest town which has a pretty town square and a large supermarket (cheaper). The quiet location and beautiful surroundings meant that we didn't feel the need to leave the villa, although there is lot's to see around the Paphos area. We drove up into the mountains and did some walking and did a fair bit of sight-seeing. The children loved the Adonis baths and waterfall and the waterpark in Paphos but were just as happy playing in the pool at the villa and didn't seem to miss their various electronic gadgets, although the villa has Wi-Fi and a couple of English programmes on the TV which they did enjoy. We made use of the BBQ most evenings, so didn't do a lot of eating out. We went to Latchi a couple of evenings and had some very nice fish dishes and Kleftiko - there is a good choice of restaurants and the owner's also recommended a good place for kebabs, nearby, although we didn't get round to trying it. The owners, who live nearby, were very kind and hospitable and gave us lots of fresh fruit and eggs! There are 3 other villas but the gardens are not overlooked and you would not know you had any neighbours most of the time.''
"The Villa was in an excellent condition. The house is very nice, thoroughly planned and well maintained. Everything we needed was there upon arrival. The pool is great and clean, the grill offers everything you need for a good barbecue and even a covered (and lighted) place to sit beside it is there. Including a sink and water to prepare the food... Lysos is a rather quiet village with a few shopping opportunities for some urgently needed food or drink but as you need a car to get to Lysos anyway, it is no problem to go to the bigger supermarkets in Polis about 15 minutes away. From the pool and the balconies you can see the mountains and the sea, polis and a sensational night sky. Initially we were a little concerned about the road that is running just behind the pool, but you can only see it if you look down from the fencing wall and there is no traffic (a fire truck keeping lookout on the mountain comes by twice a day) on it. We've been twice in the paradisos hills hotel across the road for dinner and the food was good (a little buffet). Nice seating on the terrace and very friendly service. The best sightseeing trip was definetly the Avakas gorge. The kids loved it, pure adventure. The service was very good, friendly and fast. Excellent work. Locally everything was fine also and even special wishes as early as 4 o'clock in the morning were taken care of with a friendly and obviously honest smile. It was perfect.''
"The property was spacious, clean, modern and with good facilities. The location was quiet, picturesque and unspoilt but just a 10 minute drive from Polis town. The Old Town restaurant in Polis and the restaurant at the Paradisos Hills Hotel just across the road from the villa in Lysos were both great. Your service has been very efficient friendly and helpful. Many thanks."
"Beautiful property, larger than it appears on the pics with all the comforts of home, there was nothing that we needed which want available to us, including a few bottles of water on arrival, a welcome touch after a long flight and drive.... The property looks brand new and was a spotlessly clean inside and out, the gardens well tended and the pool cleaned several times during our short stay. Amazing sums up the location. High in the hills, the views/scenery were amazing. From the garden you look out over forest and farm land with nothing other than a few houses right down to the sea in the distance. Roughly a 45 min drive from Paphos airport, the directions from letsrentonline.com were really helpful, and we found it in the dark without a problem (surprisingly). Its pretty remote, but in a good way! Although there are a couple of neighbours we didn't really hear a peep from them and other than a few cars during the day it was silence, which was just what I wanted. Polis is about 25 mins away for the supermarkets, after stocking up there wasn't much reason to leave.? Savvas Taverna in Polis was great - We went here a few years ago and made a point of visiting again. I've never had such a warm welcome. If heading into Paphos harbour, The Gourmet Taverna is worth a visit. The owners are lovely people. Our flight home wasn't until 10pm so the 11am 'check out' wasn't the best for us, but a quick call to Nitsa in the morning and she agreed we could leave at 4pm.. That gave us another day to float in the pool and meant we didn't have to drive around all day with suitcases in the car. This was only possible because they didn't have new guests that day obviously. 10/10 for Service, communication & info. All met expectations. Couldn't ask for more."
''The villa was absolutely beautiful. The location was very peaceful and nice. Paradise hotel, food was lovely very friendly people. The owners were very nice people and we were very happy with your service. Many thanks''
"'Thank you for the e-mail. The villa was fantastic, the views sublime and the overall holiday just wonderful. The voucher is much appreciated as we will be looking to stay at the same villa again some time next year. Once again, thank you very much. i will recommend your services and properties without hesitation. Kind Regards, Joanna Maric"

With an abundance of natural water Lysos was used in Cyprus as an industrial area for the melting of metals. The fountain located by the church and built in the 1900's was made entirely of stone including the five taps of which were used to supply fresh drinking water.
