Modern villa, large solar heated pool with steps in extensive garden. Free air conditioning and pool heating. Quiet location. Sea views & unlimited Wi-Fi. Coral Bay Beach 400m. Car not essentialSleeps: 6 Bedrooms: 3 Bathrooms: 2
We stayed here in the 1st two weeks of July and what a fabulous holiday we had The villa was fully equipped with every thing you need and was very clean inside and out It's situated in a nice quiet area but only a short walk to the lovely beach you can walk into coral bay but we drove most nights with plenty of restaurants to choose from But some evenings we would stay in and use the BBQ which was also excellent The only thing my wife would have liked was cushions on the sun loungers Would definitely recommend Irene and sundance villas We are now looking at going back next year
Wonderful family holiday at Villa Athena, seamless service from all at Sundance Villas, will recommend
Hi Irene & Nicole, We have had a wonderful holiday in villa Athena, and would certainly recommend it to others. There was plenty of room for us all and the addition camp bed and cot were really appreciated. The hamper was very welcoming, thank you. The pool was great and a lovely temperature, especially during the 2nd week. The pool cleaner and gardeners were very friendly & attentive and always made sure the garden and pool looked beautiful. We used the oven a number of times and found it fine, but there did not seem to be a 'fan' sound when it's on, I'm not sure if this is how it should be? It cooked the food without problem though. Andreas the owner popped by whilst myself and my mum were out. He came to fit a baby stair gate that I had enquired about, it was a godsend. My husband commented on what a lovely man he was, and the cake he brought for us was delicious and such a lovely gesture. During our stay we have not needed to use the air conditioning. A splash of wine accidentally spilt on the wall behind the sofa, my husband mentioned it to Andreas when he visited; he said it was no problem. We have also smashed 1 tall glass, apologies for this. Overall we've loved our holiday, enjoyed our pool and beach days. We visited Paphos a few times on the bus to attend mass in the church we were married in 10 years ago (hence the holiday) we've enjoyed some lovely meals out including Yialos tavern on their traditional Cyprus evening and the Sea Caves tavern. We booked into the King Evelthon Hotel on our last day to use their facilities including the water park on your recommendation. It was fab, lovely and quiet and they let us store our luggage. We also found Stevie's taxi service great on your recommendation. Thank you for providing a very seamless service. We will be recommending Sundance Villas, especially villa Athena to others.

Absolutely delighted. Being two couples we appreciated being on different levels
Hi Irene. Villa Athena Absolutely delighted. Can't think of a thing we would change or anything that was a miss. Villa very roomy and airy. Spotless and well equipped. Although we were 2 couples sharing we still had our own space, as the villa is on two levels. It would also be ideal for families. It was great to able to have a swim before breakfast. The pool is maintained to a very high standard. As we were there in August so we didn't need the pool heating, and it was a great temperature anytime of day. Mind you the weather was 37 most days!!! The guy who looked after the pool and gardens was great, very friendly and had a good knowledge of the area, very nice to talk to. The gardens were well cared for and offered sun or shade. The villa had a canopy built on outside where it was nice to eat or read, and the trees also offered shade. While if you could stand that heat the sun loungers could be placed on the lawns. The villa has a carport which was brilliant, as the car was cool to get into at anytime of day. Nicole was great she came the morning after we arrived, she told us allsorts of things. Trips available (discounts for Sundance clients), bus routes, and places of interest, times of business. She also gave us maps of the local area and the island. We booked the Wavedancer Firework Evening though her. It was a great night. Andrea the owner is charming and very friendly. We did eat out every night, but the villa has everything you could need if you should want to eat there. We never had a bad meal while there. We tried many restaurants, but returned to 3 a few times. These were:- La Vigna Trattoria - Italian, friendly service, great food.Try rack of lamb, superb. Coral Bay strip at the far end on the right just before roundabout. Andria's - Good general menu. Food superb and well presented. Service good, but lacks friendly atmosphere!! We returned for the food. Third of the way along Coral Bay strip on the right opposite the hippopotamus. Barone's - Good mixed menu. Food good. Service hilarious, the waiters are a delight, lots of crack and banter. Also very near to villa, "staggering distance". We returned 3 times nice food and a fun atmosphere. 150mts from O' Solomans. Car Hire:- Cy-Breeze. What can I say? Spot on. Gorgeous guy to meet us at the airport, a great start to any holiday!! Paperwork ready. No extra charge for 3 drivers. GPS offered. Someone to collect car on return to airport. All in all, loved every moment. Many thanks to you all at Sundance for your professional service, help and advice. We will be in touch again soon I'm sure. Four happy, relaxed people. Sharon, John, Donna and Mike.
The perfect holiday in the perfect location for the 4th year running.
Hi Irene, Villa Athena, what can I say, we all had the perfect holiday in the perfect location for the 4th year running. The villa was perfect as usual, no problems and not lacking in anything you wouldn't find at home, the pool is fab the kids live in it from the moment we get there until late into the night due to the solar heating its just never cold, the beach is a firm favorite as they love the water sports, carhire is Not needed unless you want to explore the island which is great and very clearly sign posted wherever you are driving to and Cy Breeze are brilliant to deal with nothing is to much for them we always spend the last day in Pafos and they collect the car from the car park as we use it to store the cases for the day. The wavedancer boat trip should not be missed its a great evening of dinner cabaret fireworks and dancing out at sea, the local buses are very easy to use and are only a euro into town from the villa so won't break the bank, taxi's are everwhere so never stuck or stranded, Nicole is always just a phone call away should we need any assistance with anything, and booking is so easy compared to most and Sundance Villas couldn't be more helpful if they tried, it really is a holiday from start to finish the only downside is that you have to go home eventually.
