Cyprus - Polis, Pomos

Villa Petrochtisto (meaning made from stone) is a charming traditional villa just 100m from the Sea in the popular village retreat of Pomos in Polis District, Cyprus. The many antiquities are beautifully balanced with modern day comforts making this not only a home from home in the sun but one with traditional character as a reminder that you are not at home. The villa benefits from being just 100m from the coastline and sea with a choice of beaches in easy walking distance. It is also possible to walk to tavernas, shops and other amenities in the area meaning the use of a car although recommended can be minimal after arrival.

The stone built villa perfectly combines modern features and conveniences with traditional charm and quality which is sure to make it one of the most desired holiday villas in the area.

The villa is set in well maintained and designed grounds and has 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, (en-suite to master), sleeping 8 (2 children can sleep on balcony ledges above beds in 2 of the rooms ). It has an 8m x 4m private swimming pool with roman steps, air-conditioning to bedrooms, wall mounted flat screen TV in lounge with Satellite & DVD, washing machine, dishwasher an open fire (for those cooler off-season evenings) large stone built BBQ, Kleftico/Bread oven, garden area for children to play (with swing), wireless internet/wi-fi, Mag TV box (for Premium Satellite Viewing including Sky and channels in German, Spanish, Russian etc)

The setting is both serene and spectacular with the rolling hills of the nearby forests and the not too distant sea giving views you'll remember forever. Pomos village benefits from some great tavernas the most famous being Kannali Fish Tavern which is by Pomos harbour and serves up the best catch daily. It is easy to reach the local supermarket, an atm and other basic amenities. Polis centre is a 15-20 minute drive away and where you will continue to find a taste of the real Cyprus. With its many restaurants, central square, supermarkets and other amenities it really is the best of both worlds. Latchi Beach and Marina are just a further 5 minutes drive away where you can sample local fish, hire a boat, do watersports or just relax on the soft golden sand.

There is much to see and do in the area including Santa Marina amusements at Ayia Marina, Baths of Aphrodite, Forest Walks and perhaps even a trip across the local border to North Cyprus.


DETAILS OF THE INTERIOR

After accessing the villa's grounds by large iron gates and covered driveway, the villa's front door opens into a large open plan space comprising the dining/kitchen & lounge. The cool and comfortable lounge has 2 distinct sections and is furnished with large corner sofa's facing the Flat Screen TV with Satellite & DVD player on one side and a more traditional relaxation area with seating in front of the open fireplace. The open log fire is a great advantage for those who wish some daytime sunshine and a cosy evening atmosphere in cooler winter months. The lounge has its own door leading out to the garden.

The dining/breakfasting kitchen is equipped with a table and four chairs. The fully equipped kitchen has modern appliances including, large fridge/freezer, dishwasher, oven, gas hob and extractor hood, microwave, coffee maker and other extras. The main door from the kitchen opens out onto the pool terrace which hosts a large picnic style table and benches seating 6-8 and on to the beautifully kept enclosed garden and private pool area.

A nice airflow is maintained by keeping the front door and patio doors open at the same time allowing comfortable temperatures even in the height of summer. Making up the ground floor is a cloakroom/shower room.

Moving upstairs and you will find 3 double sized bedrooms accessed from an airy landing and wide staircase with handrail. The master bedroom is a double bedroom with 4 poster bed and an en-suite shower room. Access from patio doors with wooden shutters is gained to a long balcony with seating to admire the wonderful sea views and sunsets and listen to the waves as they roll in gently to the coastline.

The second bedroom is a double bedroom and also has an adjacent shower room with half-sized bath. The third bedroom is also a double bedroom and as with the second bedroom hosts a quite unique but useful balcony/ledge above the bed which hosts a single mattress suitable for children. Steps lead up to the area and we would of course recommend caution but the ledge is fenced making it safe enough as deemed by the adult in charge.

All 3 bedrooms have air-conditioning, fitted wardrobes and shutters to doors and windows. The beds are of good quality ensuring a good nights sleep perhaps drifting off to the sound of the waves.

Wi-Fi connection is included in the rental price. Mag TV box (for Premium Satellite Viewing including Sky and channels in German, Spanish, Russian etc)

A travel cot and highchair can be supplied free of charge on request. Other extras such as hairdryer, pool towels, books and games are also provided.


DETAILS OF THE EXTERIOR

The grounds and beautifully kept gardens of 'Villa Petrochtisto' are accessed through a set of iron gates that lead into the spacious covered private driveway. There is ample parking at the rear and side of the house.

The outdoor grounds of 'Villa Petrochtisto' provide a choice of areas for relaxing, socialising or playing and a great alfresco lifestyle is available.

The centrepiece of the holiday villa's grounds is an inviting 8m x 4m private pool with adjacent terrace hosting the 6 sun loungers, picnic table, bbq and bread oven. Although there are other properties around the pool area is not in any way overlooked. The properties on the pool side are low level or below the level of this villa.

The spacious pool terrace is nicely equipped with large sun loungers that can take shade from overhanging trees or the parasols provided. The pool shower is a further benefit of this area.

A picnic table to seat 6-8 as well as large BBQ make it the perfect place for alfresco dining and socialising with your party on holiday. A traditional stone built Cypriot BBQ trough with Rotisserie is provided and the owners will more than happily show you how to use and make the traditional Cyprus Souvla which is a 'hard to beat' mouth-watering taste experience.

A useful outhouse hosts the washing machine and there is a patio to the side of the villa with table and 6 chairs which allows you to enjoy shade or sun as desired throughout the day.

Most of the outside areas afford spectacular views of the surrounding hillside as well as the Mediterranean Sea. The pretty flowers, shrubs and trees (including those growing fresh lemons) add to the atmosphere, making it the ideal place for relaxing in the sun or shade. Smartly positioned lighting ensures the outside areas can be enjoyed as much in the warm summer evenings as well as in the day time. The ambience in the evening really has to be experienced.

Review submitted by Julie from Chiddingfold (Submitted: 07/07/2019)

''We loved the property. It was clean, comfortable and well stocked with all we needed. We especially loved the quirky design of the villa and the layout of garden and very welcome pool area. There was a welcome pack of essentials provided on arrival and later a gift of home made domaldes and baclava delivered as a gift.

Pomos was unspoilt and beautiful with amazing sunsets and mountain views. The small beach next to the harbour was accessible by road or along the shore giving an alternative to swimming in the pool. If long sandy beaches are desired then a couple of kilometres down the road fits the bill with friendly tavernas along the way. We tried several and enjoyed all equally. Food was fresh, reasonable and served by friendly people who went the extra mile. One of our party suffers from a severe allergy and every eating place understood and catered for her without any issues.
The near town of Polis has very good supermarkets and shops and driving in Cyprus was easy for us.
Most of the time we chilled by pool or sea just taking time out to eat at a local restaurant and apart from a drive up into the mountains we did little else however a boat trip to the blue lagoon is very recommended.

I can honestly say this was the best holiday I have had. From the very first outset of booking with LetsrentOnline I experienced excellent service. We felt supported all the way and the advertising accurately described the property, process and made our stay easy.
If I had to say what would make another trip worthwhile it would be plea to keep the Pomos area unspoiled by development. I would hate for this beautiful strip of Cyprus to become a concrete tourist resort. Already our group have talked about going back to Cyprus and to the same villa Petrochtisto''

''We all had a lovely first visit to Cyprus. The villa was very pleasant and had all that we needed to make our stay comfortable. Pool was lovely. Location ideal for those who want peace and quiet, but easy reach of towns.(car needed)! The Harbour beach bar was delightful and people really friendly. Recommend the Blue lagoon boat trip, stunning coastline and sea. Totally satisfied with the service we have had.
I would love to visit Cyprus again. Thanks again. Lynne''

''The villa was great. Much space in it, good bedrooms, kitchen big enough.. and the outside with view to the des Greta. It was very calm there. Fine! But you need a rental car, than everything is fine - we had one 🙂

Watch the Kykko monesterary. It takes time, to be there, but it was great. Absolutely satisfied with your service. We had no contact with the owner and it wasn' t neccessary. Everthing was fine''
Review submitted by Tessa from Pembroke (Submitted: 1010/2018)

'' We loved the villa, it was very spacious (although) it was just the two of us, clean, beds were comfortable, there was plenty of hot water, the pool area was really nice and the pool was large. We felt it had rustic charm. Location was great, close to the beach and with a lovely sea view from the balcony. It was very quiet which suited us.

We particularly enjoyed hiring a boat at Latchi and the trip to the blue lagoon

Yes we were satisfied with your service - quick response to my queries and very good communication before our stay. Had no contact with the local owner. We were left a lovely welcome pack of fresh fruit and veg and my partner particularly like the beers that were left in the fridge. We loved Cyprus and will probably be returning next autumn.''

'' It was a very pleasant stay at Villa Petrochtisto. We enjoyed our vacances at Pommos. Everthing was o.k. Ist was fine to stay near the beach. We intend to visit Cyprus again We had a very delicious meal in the restaurant/bar "Oniro By the Sea" Glykou Nerou Street Coral Bay.
Warmest Regards, Gabriele ''
Review submitted by Patrick and Joe from Warwickshire (Submitted: 27/05/2018)

'' The villa was excellent and contained everything needed for a quiet relaxing holiday. The few small items not working on arrival were quickly dealt with by the owner. Despite my insistence that the issues were not urgent she arrived within five minutes to resolve the issues.

Important that renters understand that this property is some way out and the bus service is very limited. A car is essential. However if you are looking for a quieter holiday in a beautiful location with wonderful walks in the real Cyprus this is for you. No flashing lights and masses of tourist shops in Pomos.

There are a couple of cafe or kebab houses serving food and drinks frequented by locals where you will get a warm welcome. If you are looking for fine dining you will not find it in Pomos but there is a selecting of restaurants in Argaka, Polis and Latching well worth visiting.

Lets Rent on Line. Would use again, good communication throughout the booking process. Provided a wealth of information as our holiday approached. Local owner Estero is a Star. And problems she will be there usually in minutes usually carrying some local food for you to try. Nothing seems to be too much trouble for this lady. She will ensure you have a good holiday. Great neighbours too and we were eating Fresh figs from their tree for most of the holiday.''.
Review submitted by Patrick and Nicki from Shropshire (Submitted: 12/10/2017)

'' The villa was very good and far exceeded our expectations. The location in Pomos was lovely we had stunning views from the villa of the sea and surrounding mountains and the area was quiet. I would highly recommend visiting The Kanalli fish restaurant at Pomos harbour and Moustakallis Tavern at Polis both very nice eating places at good prices. We were very pleased with the service provided by Steven and the LetsRentOnline.com team they assisted us with any of our questions and made us feel comfortable doing business with them. Again very happy with the service of the local managers/owners. We can't think of anything that would need improving at the property or with the service provided.

Again many thanks to you Steven and the LetsRentOnline.com team for providing us with a great place to stay in a wonderful country, it's given us memories to cherish forever, really looking forward doing business with you again very soon. Regards Patrick and Nicki''.

Review submitted by Sitigus from Lithuania (Submitted: 02/07/2017)

'' Thank you for nice holidays. It was very very good. We liked everything about the house. We are really happy for choosing this house. We like to be in calm place, so we really liked the location. But the beach was not that good. We like the restaurant Kanali in Pomos village. Everything was good. We didnt met the owner, because we didnt want it. But he was very friendly, brought us food, and was answering us messages. Everything was perfect. We really loved this island, we didnt want to come home. It is more better to live like this, than in hotel.''.

'' The house and garden were very beautiful! Our little son loved the house immediately. The location was quiet and pieceful, just as we like it! The beaches close to the house (in direction to the harbor) are beautiful and most time there is no other person there. The agents service was great! The owners were so kind and friendly! Again many thanks for the welcome package and the many different local products and tastes we received from them!!!
Everything was perfect!!.''.

'' Very nice and original villa. Calm and nice place for those who want to be off the crowd. A lot of walking opportunities. The restaurant in the port is excellent. Nearby Pachyamos is picturesque with a nice beach walk. Absolutely satisfied with all service received.''.
Review submitted by Marion from London (Submitted: 29/09/2015)
'' The villa was absolutely perfect. Clean and the Pool was cleaned on numerous occasions. Fully equipped and missed nothing but a microwave which was not a problem. The owner was great having left milk, bread and huge bowl of fruit and salad. Home made orange squash was delicious as was the home made jam and came to greet us with a nice bowl of grapes and then home made bread. We travelled to Polis to an excellent restaurant Moustakallis where upon our second visit we were greeted by the Manager Andrewas Moustakallils like old friends and every single customer was important and it showed - the owner, if he did not see you arrive he would attend your table for a couple of minutes. Highly recommend. Lovely food and all staff great but either arrive early or book. Tuesday evening was the Greek Dancing night and very enjoyable. All communication was great from yourselves. Questions answered almost immeldiately and was not left wondering about anything. We would not hesitate to book again with you as all was extremely stress free. All in all I would give you and the Villa 10/10. Many thanks''.

Pomos

Pomos is a small coastal village with local supermarket, small butchers, bank, tavernas and coffee shops. The area is exceptionally fertile with the local farms growing tomatoes, cucumbers and strawberries. The beach and coastline starts just 100m away and goes pretty much all the way to Polis. The beach is dotted with cafes and restaurants offering a variety of facilities from simple drinks and snacks to full lunches and evening meals. Every taste is catered for, a great opportunity to enjoy the local Cyprus cuisine.

Pomos has a small harbour for local fishing boats and a number of noted fish restaurants. Fresh fish? It was caught this morning… We recommend visiting Kannali fish taverna overlooking the small marina. Fresh fish, great food, great service, great value and it'll take you 10 minutes to walk home along the beach afterwards back to the villa.

Polis

A relaxed and quaint small town with every facility you might need including a large supermarket and a hospital. Polis is built around a small square with many restaurants and bars to suit every taste. Fancy a more interesting vehicle to explore the Akamas? You can hire off road buggies and motorbikes. On the edge of Polis there is a go-kart track for a bit of friendly (or not) competition with friends.

Latchi

A fantastic centre for watersports and beaches. If you want to do it in, on or under water, head out to Latchi. You can be the wild one, or you can take it easy on the day and half day cruises along the stunning Akamas coast. Don’t forget your bikini and your snorkel. Latchi also has some fantastic fish restaurants, a great opportunity to tell the endless stories of what nearly happened while you were living it up in the sea. In the summer, there are two nightclubs to dance the night away under the stars and on the beach.

Akamas

The Akamas is a wilderness nature reserve with stunning mountains, secluded bays and amazing beaches. With a suitable car you can right away from everything and everybody and lose yourself in the pine scented countryside, swim and snorkel in the bluest water imaginable and be at one with nature. Paphos Forest The mountains inland from the villa are known as Paphos Forest. You can explore interesting mountain roads and quaint traditional villages. You can head all the way up to the famous monastery at Kykkos – look out for the unique Cyprus moufflon as you go.

Visit Villa Petrochtisto and Pomos and we are sure you won't be disappointed and will want to return again and again to this little piece of heaven.
