Beautifully quiet and secluded villa

We have thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Cyprus and would like to thank you, Irene, and Sundance Holidays for facilitating such a superb experience. The villa is well equipped and laid out - additional services including cleaning and pool maintenance were excellent. This is ideal for those who want a quiet holiday base, away from the crowds. Highly recommended!

Quiet, relaxing and private

If you want somewhere to completely unwind then I would recommend you consider this bungalow. We rented the stone house through Sundance Villas and the information pack given to us was very comprehensive and the directions and descriptions were accurate. I would recommend Sundance Villas as an agent and also the stone house as a place to stay. In Cyprus the neighbours were friendly and helpful but not intrusive, the owner of the house popped round to see if all was well and very thoughtfully brought us some courgettes from their allotment. Might sound odd, but there are two Lidl supermarkets in Paphos now, so we stocked up on lovely cypriot food there and had plenty of barbecues by the poolside. You need a car really for this area - we ended up with a Kia Picanto which struggled a bit up the hills but managed. When you are reading road maps - be aware that B roads in Cyprus are maybe not as well surfaced as you might expect! We had some interesting experiences when we were exploring. In June the weather was lovely but incredibly hot still, where the bungalow is there is a little more breeze than down at the coast which was lovely. Down in Paphos town the heat felt very heavy and we were pleased to get back up into the hill where the air was lighter. We needed air conditioning for the bedroom, but the living room and kitchen you can open up to the pool and get air in that way. Around the pool it was nice to have different options of where to sit and there was plenty of shade under the terrace or the parasol to keep us cool when we needed it. I would love to stay here again if I had the chance. And if you decide to stay in this bungalow I hope you have as nice a time as we did. x Gaynor R

The Stone House was lovely, very clean and comfortable, and we were made to feel very welcome

Dear Irene, April holiday. Our holiday was very restful. The Stone House was lovely, very clean and comfortable, and we were made to feel very welcome by Yoade and Demetri. (really lovely people) The hamper was great, everything we needed, and there was plenty of clean linen and towels. Michael rang to make sure all was ok, and also sent a text later on. All in all a very a very relaxing holiday. Thankyou once again, and I would certainly recommend Sun Dance Villas to family and friends. Best wishes Jane and Marc

The Villa was excellent for winter, particularly as you observed for the morning sunlight which it caught beautifully

Dear Irene, First of all Irene thanks for arranging such a lovely villa and location - we did go to Paphos once to look at the harbour after we had been walking most of the day up to Lara bay, That was enough of Paphos for the rest of the holiday, but we may not be typical British Holiday makers. The villa was lovely. Very comfortable, lovely views, well equipped for us anyway, and once we had sorted the fire to take the evening chill off, it was fine. The pool looked good - long enough for several strokes but even with the beautiful weather we had it was still too chilly to tempt us.As far as recommendations go - the Aphrodite trail from her baths near Lakki was a superb walk as was a walk we did from Nikoklia up the valley to the deserted Turkish village then up along the ridge to Kukuklia and back to Nikoklia. The walk to Lara on the west side of the Akamas was very nice... all the hill villages were interesting, as were the two Monasteries up on Pano Pageia. We found the more simple looking Cafes/Tavernas were far more interesting with very friendly reception and service albeit with limited menus or none at all, than the larger more salubrious looking ones. This was particularly the case where the locals were present. This applied in all the mountain villages as well as Stroumpi. The Villa was excellent for winter, particularly as you observed for the morning sunlight which it caught beautifully... We had inversions below us in the valley on two or three mornings, so maybe the Cottage at Nikoklia would have been under mist at those times and so colder. We liked Nikoklia but couldn't remember exactly where the Cottage was located. I think that we managed to get its general location from the lovely Old Lady running the tiny coffee house but we didn't actually see it. Stroumpi was probably better for the winter because of more facilities in walking distance, but I would like to see Nikoklia in the Spring. Sundance Villas seem to be a very well organised and customer orientated company and made our visit to Cyprus very easy. Regards and Thanks again. Tony and Linda Owens

Lots of lovely November sunshine for rambling

Hello Irene, Had a wonderful stay here November. As the house is south facing it gets a lot of sunshine and we found it cosier than the other villa we stayed at. We found the ATM, it's on the left of the church in Stroumbi square. The walks here are excellent as there are many tracks and lanes to take you off the beaten track to view the stunning scenery. If you go to Stroumbi square you will see a beautiful light purple shrub. Not sure of name. Many thanks to Cy Breeze for their professional service. And thanks for the extra map, very useful Best wishes Tim W

Complete relaxation at beautifully located and maintained villa

Property was wonderfully equipped clean and maintained villa in lovely rural location without feeling completely cut off from civilisation! Easy walking access to local villages and mini markets. The welcome pack was great - we had a veggie one which was perfect (cornflakes, milk, cheese, eggs, fruit etc) - and very welcome with arriving at 11pm. During stay the owner also delivered some lovely traditional desserts. The pool was great though being Nov we tended to use it as a plunge pool rather than for swimming. Owner was very hospitable and available without being imposing. Cypriot hospitality was amazing - we ate oranges, apples and prickly pears off the trees that we walked past (with permission from owners) and were given free tomatoes because we wanted ripe ones which apparently aren't popular with locals. This was an amazing break with complete relaxation. The villa is a short walk from the bus stop which goes hourly to either Paphos or Polis so we didn't hire a car. The village is very sleepy and surrounded by vineyards olive groves and orange trees. The villa was secluded though does have neighbours (not occupied when we were there) but not directly overlooked. The villa rep was excellent and kept in touch to make sure we were happy and had no problems. Def would go back and November was great weather. "thank you to Sundance, and super efficient and knowledgeable Irene" Christine N

We enjoyed the peace and quiet at Stone House

The Villa was very well equipped, very clean and spacious, and due to the lack of neighbours of any description (save right at the end of the road Villa) wonderfully quiet and private. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves as a result of this much needed rest and peace. We left a bottle of wine as a "Thank you" for the pudding which we found on our arrival in the fridge. We have already recommended Sundance to family and friends and forwarded Irene's web site to them. So thank you to Sundance, and super-efficient and knowledgeable Irene, and Nick at Cy-breeze cars who was helpful and most kind to us--- hopefully we parked the car in the right place at the Airport! So thank you all for your efficient service and a wonderful holiday. Jan Steadman and John Pettman
