“We walked everywhere and throughly enjoyed the mix of traditional Cyprus, the undeveloped local Riccos beach, and the buzz of Kato Paphos. Excellent bus service too, often dropping us at the gate.”
Villa Katerina is conveniently and uniquely located on the edge of Paphos, just 1.5km from Kato Paphos with it's many bars and restaurants, and just 20 minutes’ drive from Paphos airport. Many clients who repeat book here and like to walk do not hire a car as there is a bus stopping nearby that can deliver you from Paphos Airport. We provide a map showing you how to walk or cycle to the beach (15 - 20 minutes walk), Kato Paphos (15 minutes walk) or Geroskipou village (10 minutes walk).
Villa Katerina has been finished to a comfortable standard by the owner Lambros, whose welcoming attitude (friendly but not intrusive) and hospitality to our guests has ensured the repeat bookings here. The garden is gated for privacy, and the villa is accessed via Lambros' pecan nut grove. You can enjoy free range eggs and locally grown fruit and vegetables from the garden in the pecan grove.
This traditional house has a homely feel, is open plan, and as well as having air conditioning throughout, has mosquito mesh on all windows, to allow cool air in without bugs, and there is a fireplace to make it cosy in cooler months.
The jewel in the crown here is the enormous 10m hand tiled private lap pool with overflow feature and roman steps with a handrail. This beautiful pool adds a real touch of luxury. At a depth of 1.6m all over you can swim lengths without knocking your knees on the bottom, or use it as a “jogging pool”, which is great exercise too.
The secluded south facing sun drenched terraces are ideal for sunbathing and eating al-fresco. The property has fencing all around and the poolside cannot be overlooked.
To keep in touch with the outside world Wi-Fi Internet access is provided, and you have Satellite TV which provides local channels and News.
For a taste of traditional Cyprus, Geroskipou village is 10 minutes walk. The recently renovated square is wonderful, and has a good selection of tavernas and bars, shops selling local goods such as basket and stoneware and Cyprus Delight. Here you can enjoy a beautiful new pedestrian area near the unique 5 domed Agia Paraskevi Byzantine church. In 2021 the road to the village was upgraded and has lighting too, so is much safer for walking now.
This area is protected from development of houses, and there are sports of all types in the area including the Aphrodite Water Park at approx. 500m and Paphos Football Club training centre next door. You may hear the players, but not see them, and they cannot see you. Atlantida fish taverna is 800m, next to the sea.
