''The villa was very nice and the photos on line did it justice. The outside space especially was beautiful and well maintained and the pool heating was perfect (we have often stayed at villas where the pool heating didn’t feel as though it was on despite us paying for it! ).

The location was perfect for us, we like peace & quiet and not to be overlooked, so it really did suit us. It is a little off the main roads but the directions were perfect and we found it in the dark without a problem. It was only a 10 minute drive to Polis, which is very pleasant. We didn’t go out very much, although had lunch at a restaurant called Chix Chox in Polis where we found the service and food to be very good.

We were very happy with the service provided by both yourself and Debbie, the owner of the villa. The information provided prior to departure was excellent and Debbie visited us on our first evening and nothing was too much trouble for her. We had a lovely welcome pack provided on arrival and she provided some wood for the fire pit for us when we enquired about trying to buy some as we had difficulty in finding any on our first day. She also put us in touch with a man who helped with some WiFi issues on a couple of occasions.

We will almost definitely visit Cyprus again next October, we are considering booking The Lost Castle again for the same week!

We did have a wonderful relaxing week at The Lost Castle, we loved this area (we have previously stayed closer to Paphos south of the airport) and a colleague of mine is already considering booking the property next summer.

Thank you for your excellent assistance

''The villa was clean, exactly as described. Lovely villa with all that you could ask for. There is always an shaded outside area for you to sit in, as the sun rotates around the villa and plenty or sunbathing near the pool as well. The location was stunning, views were breathtaking. The location of the villa is not as far from Polis as you think, once you've done the trip up and down the hill a couple of times. The added benefit of the mountain/ hill location is that even on a very hot day the beach/lower areas are very hot and humid, but when you return to the villa the cooling breeze is a welcome break from the heat/ humidity. The silence away from the main though fare was very relaxing and the noisiest part of the holiday was when goats/ livestock were being herded each morning, when you heard their bells ringing, it became a bit of a eye spy to see if we could see them.

The taverna in Steni and the roadside restaurant in Steni (The Watermill) plus the taverna in Lysos all give excellent food which is reasonably priced. The waterfall near the village of Katu Terra (I think) was a lovely drive and the village taverna there a welcome respite after the hike. If you are lucky to bump into Andreas there he may give you a tour of the village and it's history.

The service provided in all aspects was exceptional. Debbie was a beautiful person and was there for you if you needed her, but was not one of these villa owners who are constantly bugging you. Debbie very kindly allowed us to stay later on our last day as we had a late flight home, this made our last day very relaxing and we were so very appreciative of this.

We have no complaints what so ever and will use your services again to book our next villa. We are hoping to obtain the lost castle again''

''The Lost Castle is very well maintained, both inside and out. It is spacious and relaxing, and provides a home from home. The location is perfect for us. The views are amazing and the location is so quiet, with barely a car coming along the road. It provides a beautiful and peaceful backdrop.

We highly recommend Latchi water sports. We hired a boat on a couple of occasions and it is a great way to spend a relaxing afternoon. We also received a discount through Let’s Rent Online. We had lovely meals at Santa Barbara and The Watermill.

Very satisfied with your service. Any queries are very quickly responded to and the information provided is excellent. Very satisfied locally also. I made contact with the local manager a couple of times and received immediate responses. They were welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. ''

''Fantastic villa! By far the best villa I’ve ever stayed at. Stunning location! The views around the villa I could never get tired of. Latchi boat hire was amazing and was one the highlights of the holiday. The old town restaurant and herb garden were the best restaurants that we went to and also Duomos was great.

As usual your service was 1st class. Locally, Debbie couldn’t do enough for us and was so friendly'

''Great stay in the lost castle would definitely recommend it to any future bookers, the views are stunning especially during the recent thunderstorms. We had a lot of contact with Debbie (the owner) and she was fantastic, helpful in many ways, every question or enquiry answered promptly and to full satisfaction. Excellent service all round, by far the best we have ever had. We would highly recommend Latchi for its restaurants and cafes, also if you want sea trips it has everything.''

''Thanks for your email. We would like to let you know about our experience staying at the Lost Castle, Pelathousa. The property is absolutely stunning! The house was immaculate upon arrival. It has been rented out as a home, not just a rental villa. It is equipped with everything you need for a self catering stay. The bedrooms are spacious with plenty of storage. The outdoor sitting areas are vast. The fireplace on the upstairs terrace which we utilised on an evening was fantastic. We have never seen so may stars in the sky! No light pollution to spoil the night sky. We had the pool heated and WoW it was like getting in the bath!

The location is fantastic! Beautiful scenery, peace and quiet. Only a ten minute drive from Polis village and the beach. We were more than satisfied with the agents. They were very helpful. We met the owners on our second day and they were lovely people who could not do enough for us. We do not think the Lost castle could be improved upon. It is perfect and we want to live there all the time! We usually visit Cyprus twice a year (April & October) and we will definitely attempt to book the Lost Castle again. ''

''Perfect villa, real value for money. Absolutely stunning location. Away from the busyness of a town, yet it feels safe and secure. A 5 km drive takes you to all the shops you need, including supermarkets. More than satisfied with all service received. Can’t think of anything to complain about! We had a lovely time in Cyprus. ''

''The Lost Castle was perfect in every way. A very homely and relaxing villa. The villa was completed to a very high standard inside and out. With excellent tech facilities.The villa has exceptional views which are breathtaking. The area is very peaceful. Debbie was very welcoming and approachable. We made the most of the Latchi water sports discount and used this business 3 times during our stay. They are very helpful and great with kids e.g. adapting trips etc. We ate, in both, Latchi and Polis and had lovely meals, but our favourite place to eat is The Watermill in Steni. This is our 3rd trip to the area and have visited this restaurant many, many times. They are welcoming, very helpful and the food is lovely and fresh. ''

''The villa was excellent and more than we could have hoped for. We felt we were staying in a well-appointed home rather than a holiday villa. The location was ideal for us and just what we were looking for. Seclusion, quiet and privacy. The panoramic views were breath-taking, the silence delightful and we felt we could almost touch the stars at night.

The Old Town restaurant in Polis was our favourite, fine dining at a cost but good value once or twice during a short visit. The partridge ravioli has to be tried. The Herb Garden in Polis is also worth a visit. A good menu and vibrant atmosphere in the evening and value for money but a little over lit. The chocolate shop at Platres is a must to visit. Slightly eccentric and the handmade chocolates are just the best. We hired a power boat from Latchi water sports for half a day, not cheap and thank you for the discount, but really good fun. Excellent service here. Really strong on safety without being overly officious.

You were great guys. Really good pre-visit literature and prompt responses to our questions. Debbie and Adam were very supportive and attentive while giving us the privacy we were looking for. They were very much hosts and they made us feel very welcome and cared for. It was perfect for us and a very special place to visit. ''

''We had a fabulous holiday. The villa was perfect & in a lovely location, very quiet which is exactly what we wanted. The owners Debbie & Adam were lovely, very friendly & helpful. We are already thinking about returning next year! We didn't really eat out much as we just wanted to relax at the villa, but we did eat at The Herb Garden restaurant in polis which was fabulous, the food was delicious.

The local village shop had everything we needed & the owner was very helpful & friendly, he even sourced us some fresh herbs & local olive oil. Thank you for sorting out our holiday we will definitely be booking through you again, we have been looking at Debbie's other villa the lost castle which we are very tempted to book. Kind regards and huge thanks. Richard & Anita''

''Superb, quality of fixtures and fittings was excellent. The location is secluded but close enough to Polis etc for restaurants, supermarkets etc. We recommend, The Old Town Restaurant in Polis, Santa Barbara Beach Bar in Argaka. More than happy with your service - very proactive re offers, responses to emails all very good. Very professional, always felt that you were on top of the booking. Yes very satisfied with the owner, very friendly and helpful, lovely lady. Hopefully be back again next year''.

''The villa was excellent in every way. The location is remote, private and exactly what we were looking for. Beautiful country side scenery. Polis Town has many good restaurant and a very good super market.
Would recommend your agency to friends and family. Excellent service and very good communication. ''.
Review submitted by Richard from Middlesex (Submitted: 22/09/2015)

''Many thanks for your usual diligence concerning our letting of The Lost Castle villa in Cyprus. We had a very positive experience in the delightful villa and very secluded and scenic location. The villa is well equipped and the layout and stonework of the building is one of the best we have seen. Many spacious areas to sit or lie and and much thought has been given to the design for a truly relaxing break. The hammocks are a very nice addition and should be tried by everyone. The expansive views are very much a recommended part of this villa. The relative solitude that the location provides was perfect for us and only a 10 minute or so drive to the town of Polis which is very manageable even on the hilly and winding road.

The owners Debbie and Adam were very helpful and replied and attended straight away to any problem that arose . The directions to the villa are very good as, even though we are familiar with the area to a degree, it was obviously very dark on the journey but we found the villa exactly as directed.

We have been satisfied previously with LetsRentOnline as this is our third booking with you and have not been disappointed this year again. Debbie spoke very highly of you and the service you provide and I concurred from a letters viewpoint too.
Thank you on behalf of my wife and myself for your usual customer service and attention to detail. It is much appreciated and nice to have such a personal and relaxed feel to the process of booking which can be lost with some other companies. We would love to say we intend to book a villa at some point in the future with you ''.
Review submitted by David and Mandy from Brighton (Submitted: 21/05/2015)

''Yes we had a lovely time. We found the property as described, clean and very tidy all the equipment was of a high quality and all worked. The location was just what we had been looking for, very isolated and private, but not to far away from civilisation. Just walking outside the door, with so many lovely walks you do need to go far. I would recommend the Hotel in Lusos the food was lovely and good value . I would say let rent online is the best service we have ever had, we in the past have used many agency's and Lets Rent are by far the best. Very happy with the communication that we had with the owner. We will to return to Cyprus soon and will more then likely rebook with you for next year''.

''Magnificent villa, panoramic views are stunning and had all the mod cons you need. The fireplace was wonderful as well as the free logs. The location is peaceful and idyllic. I recommend Mikes coffee shop Lysos and Milos in Latchi, very friendly staff. Fabulous agent service, spot on! Very satisfied with owner locally also. Thanks and keep in touch''.
Review submitted by Sarah from East Sussex (Submitted: 16/11/2014)

''The villa was absolutely amazing, well laid out, clean and spacious. As described, the property was very private and secluded you really could hear a pin drop as described. The views were absolutely spectacular. We went to Moustakallis, Finikas both in Polis. Both were very nice and I would definitely recommend them. We also went to Fitos tavern in Lysos. This was recommended to us by Debbie and Adam. We had the traditional menu and it was lovely. Tombs of the Kings was interesting as was the shopping centre in Paphos. Baths of Aphrodite were worth a visit but perhaps we could have been prepared for the long walk to the top! Yes we were satisfied with the service we got from you. We couldn't have asked for better communications from the owners. Debbie and Adam came to see us on our first day and recommended places to go and see. Debbie left us her mobile number and most days we communicated in this way. Adam checked the pool every day and we saw him in the tavern on the Thursday. Adam also picked and left us a huge box of fruit which was a lovely touch. I wish Debbie and Adam all the best in their new venture. They were amazingly helpful to us''.
Review submitted by Bernard from Oxford (Submitted: 07/11/2014)

''Much of what 'The Lost Castle' was about was the views. It is situated just a ten minute drive from Polis near the top of one side of a valley which runs down to the coast. Therefore, you have wonderful views across and up and down the valley all the way to the sea. The only other habitation you can see at the moment are whole villages sprinkled on the hills several miles away. It is possible to take in the views from just about every room in the house but also from the extensive lawned and paved area around the pool or the enormous 1st floor terrace that wraps itself round two sides of the house and is completed with an external staircase. If the weather does take an unlikely dodgy turn there is a thoughtfully provided large covered patio area with a ping pong table. And just to leave you in no doubt that this is a house built for family entertaining - we are provided with 3 outside barbecues.
The interior is extremely roomy - huge living room, fine family kitchen/diner with oak tables and chairs - 3 large bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, one containing that all important bath.

It would be possible to spend a week driving around the immediate area. There is a lovely little Byzantine church on your drive up from Polis to the property, well worth a tiny diversion. The next village, Peristerona, contains a beautiful little icon museum while Steni with its war memorial and Lysos are worth dropping in on. The views of the Evretou dam on the the way up to Fyti are spectacular. In Fyti itself you will find a very charming square with a great Taverna, a lovely church and a weaving shop/museum where you will be charming collared into buying some of work created there.
Polis itself is small and laidback with a great choice of eateries in the Old Town. Our favourite was 'The Art Cafe', a short walk from the main square towards the lovely park. A further 5-10 minute drive takes you to Latchi harbour where you can saunter along the cafe-filled promenade listening to the singing of the wind through the boats' rigging. Yet another short and very nice drive, this time along the coast takes you to the baths of Aphrodite. Further afield, the mosaics at Kato Paphos and the Tombs of the Kings, both consisting of extensive ruins between town and sea, are an absolute must, a couple of the most spectacular ancient sites sites we've ever visited.

Agents were great. They answered any query promptly. Everything was clear. The owner, Debbie, made a point of dropping in on us the night after we arrived. We never needed to contact her again, but we had her no. and would have been confident doing so. We might well visit Cyprus again soon - it seems a perfect place for a mid-October holiday. We have been lucky enough to have managed to afford a week's villa holiday in a Mediterranean country every year for the last 20 years''.
Review submitted by Gareth from Warwickshire (Submitted: 02/10/2014)

''The property was exactly as we had hoped for as a described.2. What about the location? The property was easy to find from the excellent directions provided but its remoteness was what attracted us to it and therefore not an issue. The views were spectacular and whilst located next to a road, such little traffic used this road that you did not notice it as an issue. The villa was so nice that we only left the villa to get provisions for our stay! We did however visit the coast for one day and would recommend the beach at Latchi. All communications and correspondence was excellent and in a timely manner. The owner Debbie, visited us personally on the first day and both my wife and I felt this was a very nice personal touch''.


Review submitted by Shaun from Abu-Dhabi (Submitted: 30/08/2014)

''We had a great time in Cyprus and the Lost Castle was outstanding. We spent a total of three weeks in Cyprus; a week in Kyrenia, 5 days in the Troodos and then 9 days in Polis. So we got to see a lot of the island and we all agreed that we would only return to Polis and the Lost Castle in particular. It really was perfect for us. Great location, wonderful villa, just the right size - everything we could want. I'd be more than happy to write a review on TripAdvisor if the villa is listed. Thank you also for your help in securing the extra few days. We would definately consider returning in the next couple of years''.

Pelathousa is a traditional mountain village in the Polis area of Paphos District, Cyprus. It's a picturesque village famous for its efforts to maintain the beauty and the traditions of Cyprus.

Churches such as Panayia Chryselousa constructed at the end of the 15th century with Byzantine and Gothic elements, Profitis Elias, Ayios Constantinos, Ayios Charalambos and the country church of Archangel Michael provide for a unique perspective of the village's history.

The local area is primarily agricultural, producing cereals, olives and almonds with its wonderful climate producing many delightful fruits and vegetables such as cherries, avocado, mango, watermelons, apples, lemons and oranges in abundance.

The famous museum of Arsinoe in Peristerona displays an attractive collection of objects from the Byzantine period, including Byzantine icons from the 13th to 19th centuries, as well as wood carved ecclesiastical items, local and imported silver and metal artefacts as well as textiles. Rare books and manuscripts are also on display. Peristerona is situated between the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea and the spectacular mountains of Paphos Forest and the Troodos. Walking in the forests is a delight. Filled with pine trees, fruit and olive trees, wild flowers and herbs and vineyards the air is scented and the views spectacular. The nearby village of Steni (also steeped in tradition) hosts a coffee shop with wireless internet access and a very good traditional taverna. Travel a little further into the hills and you will find Lysos, which has a very good horse riding school and is also home to a very good traditional Cyprus taverna, with neighbouring shops and the more widely known Paradisos Hills Hotel which does an excellent Sunday buffet as well as a themed Indian night on a Friday. There is also a shooting club, mainly doing clay pigeon shooting with spectacular scenery as a backdrop.

Heading back towards the coastline and you will find the town of Polis. There is plenty of activity to choose from in Polis, whether you wish to dine in one of the many good quality restaurants, have a coffee or lunch in the central square, hire mountain bikes, quad bikes or maybe even a boat at Latchi!

Latchi beach is renowned as one of the best in Cyprus and not as crowded as the beaches in and around Paphos itself. Latchi beach is famous for its clear blue sea, soft white sand and a great selection of water-sports which are readily available. The water-sports available at Latchi include diving, snorkelling, sailing, banana rides and a great deal more. Bring your UK driving licence and you can even hire a boat and explore the Akamas coast from the sea (special discount for our customers). Drop anchor when you feel like it and swim or snorkel in the warm crystal blue water of the Mediterranean Sea. For the more adventurous, you can explore the Akamas nature reserve and go all the way round to Lara Beach famous for its turtles and another wonderful unspoilt beach. You can also venture to the nearby villages of Miliou, Droushia and Panagia or further on to Kathikas with its vineyards and wineries. Other fantastic scenery can be taken in at Cedar Valley and the Troodos mountain range where in winter, you can even ski!

Paphos airport is 45 minutes away by mostly good quality roads with English road signs. Visit 'The Lost Castle' (for a taste of the real Cyprus) and you won't be disappointed.
