Cyprus - Polis, Pelathousa

Carob Trees Villa is a newly re-furbished villa situated in an entirely private location on a wooded hillside in one of the most beautiful, unspoilt regions on the Western side of Southern Cyprus. Carob Trees is a unique, privately built 5 bedroom** villa situated in the hills behind Polis Chrysochous. This luxuriously appointed villa commands beautiful unobstructed views of the Troodos Mountains, and really is one of a kind.

As a new construction, this villa has been purposely designed to achieve the highest standards with some stone cladding externally. Inside is an open plan layout, completed in a minimalist style. Patio doors and windows are double glazed. Due to the careful positioning of the villa, maximum privacy has been achieved without obstructing the beautiful views that the property enjoys. When you enter the villa, we hope you feel its personality, individuality and warm homely feeling.

From the villa there is an astounding panorama of the Troodos Mountains and surrounding hills with far reaching views down through the valley to the Mediterranean Sea. The villa has both full central heating and air conditioning making it an ideal location for summer and winter vacations. The small seaside town of Polis is approximately 12 minutes away by car with Paphos within easy reach (less than 1 hour’s drive away.)

Owner Comment- Nov 2017-
One observation is - if one was looking for solitude/peace and quiet, Carob Trees is a knock-out. After a very hectic few months in UK to wake up to nothing but bird song and sunshine on a November morning was beyond heaven :-)

Review submitted by Seonaid from Midlothian (Submitted: 21/08/2018)

''We had an absolutely wonderful week in Cyprus. The villa was one of the best we have ever stayed in. So spacious and thoughtfully set up. The views and rural location beautiful with easy access to the beach and shops within ten minutes drive. We had a wonderful night out at the Watermill in Steni, and also found a superb Fish Taverna on the coast in Pomos. The communications by both you as agents and Debbie the manager has been 1at class, responding to any issues of queries very quickly. We probably won't be back in Cyprus over the next two years as we tend to visit different countries each year, but we will be back at some point in our life time to revisit the fabulous beaches and amazing archaeological ruins. Many thanks for your support along the way, Seonaid .''

''Excellent Villa and Loctaion. Restaurants were fantastic, Latchi watersports were really great. Very satisfied with al service, you were really helpful. Locally, Debbie was fantastic. Thank you for acting on our suggestions from last year which definitely made this holiday even better than last year. .''

Review submitted by Isabelle from London (Submitted: 06/08/2017)

''Thanks for an amazing stay at Carob Trees Villa. The welcome pack was very much appreciated when we arrived, which kept us going until our shop the next day. The kitchen was really well equipped and we prepared some gorgeous local fresh fish on the outside barbecue. The outdoor pool and terrace area were fabulous, the parasols and sun beds were really qualitative which made for some very relaxing afternoons cooling off from the heat! The villa is close enough to nearby towns to venture out for visiting, but we enjoyed the more local feeling of the surrounding area and enjoyed some traditional Cypriot dishes in a lovely restaurant the next village along.''

Review submitted by Evgeniy from Israel (Submitted: 31/06/2017)

Services provided by agents LetsRentOnline.Com at a high level and flawless. Contact with managers was friendly , informative and timely.

Carob Trees lies between the villages of Lysos, Pelathousa & Peristerona, in the North-West corner of Southern Cyprus. The villa overlooks a beautiful and unspoiled valley leading down to the sea; providing breath-taking views of the surrounding area with the Troodos Mountains clearly visible in the distance. Gentle mountain breezes flow through the villa, providing refreshing relief from the soaring temperatures at the height of summer.

Lysos is a beautiful mountain village in the Paphos district which continues to preserve the Cypriot traditional architecture with many of the old houses restored to their original beauty. It is a peaceful, rural environment offering an escape from the hustle and bustle of city life and a friendly local atmosphere with English widely spoken.
Lysos has an excellent horse riding school, a clay pigeon shooting club and traditional Cypriot food is served at the local taverna and Paradisos Hills Hotel, renowned for its Sunday buffet. The larger town of Polis has all amenities, including a Post Office, large Supermarket offering international brands, banks, pharmacies, numerous restaurants and bars, petrol filling stations and a market selling local produce.

Just outside the village is a new stone built hotel, with an excellent restaurant and large swimming pool; otherwise, a well known taverna is situated in the heart of the village.
