Villa Talassa is one of a cluster of seven (built 2005) in a quiet cul-de-sac next to a plot with grass and trees. It is only 5 minutes drive to Coral Bay with its sandy beach, shops, restaurants and bars offering fun for all the family and a lively nightlife. The villa is 1 km from the old hillside village of Peyia which has tavernas, supermarkets, banks, and a pharmacy. You can buy fresh meat and fish and freshly baked bread, and there is a Deli (great for takeaways).
The villa is spacious and comfortable and furnished to a high standard. The ground floor consists of an open plan lounge with air-conditioning, an elegantly appointed dining area (seats six) and fully-equipped modern kitchen. French doors in the dining and living rooms lead respectively to the patio (sunbeds) and to the furnished terrace (table and chairs) overlooking the swimming pool.
Marble staircase leads to upstairs rooms, which are fully air-conditioned. The master bedroom has a four-poster bed and balcony, as well as en suite shower and toilet, and the second bedroom has two single beds (placed together) and balcony. Both balconies are accessed by French doors, which have mosquito nets. The third bedroom has two single beds. All the bedrooms have built-in wardrobes and there is a spacious family bathroom with bath, shower and toilet. There is also a downstairs toilet and central heating for use in the short winter season.
How we are different to others:
- Our pool is maintained to the very highest standards by a National Swimming Pool Foundation certified operator so you can rest assured that the quality of the water is of the highest standard ensuring a good holiday and safe swimming.
- Mosquito nets on both balcony doors, window in the third bedroom and patio door let in fresh air at night (instead of aircon)
- There is a safe for your valuables
- Gas central heating will keep you warm in winter/early spring (air con heating, which most other villas have, makes the air very dry but the house remains damp)
- Free cot, high chair and protective gats for your children
Peyia area and Paphos district
Threading through the banana plantations, a short drive along the coast and up from Paphos will bring you to the traditional hillside village of Peyia. One of the prettiest and least spoilt villages in the area, it overlooks Coral Bay and the Paphos coast. The village has charming little streets and alleyways, with interesting old houses set off by colourful flowers and citrus trees, and a beautiful old church. Peyia also has many lively tavernas but manages to preserve a friendly local atmosphere. There are good shops and supermarkets, banks, and a pharmacy. You can buy fresh meat and freshly baked bread in the village, as well as sweet and savoury pastries, and there is a Deli (great for takeaways). Just five minutes drive away from Peyia is the famous Coral Bay resort with its sandy beach, offering fun for all the family, and a lively nightlife.
Peyia Town Hall is a very popular wedding venue. Villa Talassa hosted wedding guests on several occcasions.
Paphos, the legendary birthplace of Aphrodite, combines ancient history with all the amenities of a bustling cosmopolitan tourist resort. The pretty little harbour has retained its charm with tavernas serving fresh fish and tame pelicans parading along the waterfront. Further inland is the old town of Paphos, known to the locals as Ktima, very atmospheric with its narrow streets and covered market. The early tombs of the Kings, cut out of rock with grand Doric facades, are a leading attraction off the road going north from Paphos to Coral Bay, a popular resort with its broad sandy beach and clusters of shops and cafes. Within easy driving distance of the town you can discover simple agricultural villages and forested peaks offering spectacular views. Paphos is on UNESCOs World Cultural Heritage list.
