11 kilometres (15 minutes drive) to the West of Paphos and 3 kilometres below the friendly and picturesque, hillside village of Peyia is Coral Bay, the best natural (European Blue Flag) beach in the area. This is an established resort with many villas set apart from one another above a wide curve of dark golden sand. The summer heat is often tempered by a gentle breeze and the sea has a shallow margin where children may play safely. In the busier months, water sports on offer include pedaloes, water skiing, banana boats, jet skis and windsurfing.
Close by the Bay you will find large hotels, banks, shops, mini-markets (for provisions and souvenirs), bars, restaurants and street cafes for casual alfresco meals. There are tavernas and snack bars overlooking the sea and a large restaurant in the next bay which is open during the day. More tavernas and local shops are just a short drive away.
An excellent bus service takes you into the town of Paphos with its historical harbour, gift shops and restaurants. Also the ‘Old Town’ of Paphos with its blend of high quality shops and traditional markets.
Within a short driving distance are the Troodos Mountains, Latchi Beach, Akamas Forrest, Lara Beach, Aphrodite’s Rock, Baths of Aphrodite and three championship golf courses to name but a few. Paphos also boasts one of the best water parks in Cyprus.
Things to do in the area include Paphos Bird Park, reptile park, horse riding, Akamas Peninsular & Lara Nature Reserve, hiking/walking, buggy safaris, 4 x 4 safaris, sea caves area, sailing and many more. Amusement and water parks in Paphos are also easily accessible from Coral Bay as are numerous archaeological ruins such as the Tombs of the Kings.
If you want to get out and explore some fantastic scenery, take a trip to the Akamas, Polis, Latchi or even Troodos mountains. The Akamas is an untouched part of Cyprus with unspoilt coastline and traditional fish taverns in stunning seaside locations. Troodos is of course the main mountain range in Cyprus, not many people know that in the winter....you can ski!

The Villa was in a perfect position near to restaurants,shops and the beach a car is not required unless you want to tour the area. There is everything you need at this villa and it was very clean and tidy. The sun loungers are very good with nice padded covers. The pool was great the temperature perfect to cool down.

We found the Villa to be well stocked with crockery etc. It was in a good and quiet location. Definitely recommend getting a jeep to go into the mountains off-road. Gary and Louise were very friendly and suggested several local tavernas of outstanding quality. Overall enjoyable holiday.
There is only one negative and that was the villa, pool, bed linen and towels were only cleaned/changed once in the two week period we stayed there.
Many thanks indeed for your review. We are pleased you enjoyed the villa and holiday and that you have made a good recommendation for future guests at Villa Zara. With regards the negative you mention, our records show that the pool was cleaned many times during your stay, with most of them being before 7am in the morning which is normal so that guests are not disturbed. If it was cleaned only once in 2 weeks it would go green and you would definitely notice. The villa is self catering and 1 clean and linen change is normal for a 2 week stay. A washing machine and cleaning materials are provided for anything extra that may be required. I am sorry if this was not 100% clear in the property adverts and booking information. Thanks very much again.

Being only a few minutes walk from the high street of Coral Bay was fantastic. No need for a car. The pool was very private too.

If I had any complaint it would be that it was a little overlooked, but saying that it was very quiet even though the villa was situated wihin a couple of minutes walk from the night life in Coral Bay. We were never disturbed by noise and had a really relaxing holiday which is what we wanted and needed.
Within the property there was everything that we needed for our stay it was lovely to have a welcome pack so that we could relax with a drink after the journey before we had to stock up on food etc.
The villa was clean and comfortable and we were made very welcome by the agent who met us and directed us to the property and showed us round. We were then left to enjoy our time in Cyprus, knowing if we needed anything, advice or help Louise and her husband were at the end of the telephone to offer help. We felt it was value for money it met and exceeded our expectations and looked just like the photographs in the adverts.
I would come again and I have already told friends and family how good it was. Thank you. RJ Williams
Nice clean villa, well maintained and has everything that you would need. In a good location, short walk to main street for restaurants, bars and shops.
We visited this villa at the end of September with our one year old daughter and 2 ofther couples. There was plenty of space of us to not get in each others way and the bedrooms were all a lovely size for us all to have our own rooms.
Reading the previous reviews on here we expected to have a couple of resturants nearby in reality there were about 20 all down one road plus bars!! We olny went into Paphos a couple of times but you really didnt need to. Plus the local supermarket does free delivery which was handy with the amount of water we were buying!!
Andy the Taxi man was very helpful and recommended a few places for us to visit and was always a phone call away and even arranged for someone else to pick us up if he was busy to ensure we didnt pay over the odds!!
Very pleasant holiday and child friendly.

''Good morning Steven. I am back in work today and have just picked up your e-mail. We had a really good relaxing holiday and feel fully recharged in readiness for Christmas. I have written my answers against the questions below.
Lovely and very well equipped Villa. We did leave our comments in the guest book. Good location. All the meals we had out were very good but our favourite is the La Vigna Trattoria. As we have been to Cyprus many times before we did not do any sightseeing. No problems whatsoever, everything quite simple. Thank you for all your help. Best wishes. Carol''

The villa was Very good and well equipped. Clean and comfortable. The location is perfect. Easy walking into the shops and bars and only 10 mins to the beach. Blazing Saddles have good live entertainment. Elvis night was very entertaining. Also the Paphos Segway Experience was fabulous and strongly recommended. Good communication at all times.We will most certainly be booking it again later in the season, once I have some flights booked.

Villa Zara is a lovely villa, light and airy inside, and always very clean. It is well equipped and has good outside space with a terrace to relax on and have your meals. Its location is ideal being a short walk from the main strip in Coral Bay with its many restaurants and shops. We particularly love the Trattoria La Vigna restaurant with its great food and friendly atmosphere. The local managers, Gary and Louise, are very helpful as are the taxi firm Andys who we booked through you, they make sure you get into your villa before leaving you. We will definately be back to cyprus and this villa if at all possible next year.

The Villa was perfect, no complaints about anything, clean and comfortable and pool great..! The whole holiday from beginning to end was fantastic, all went smoothly pick up to and from airport was great no hassle at all. The owners were great even let us stay late on the day of our return as we had a late flight. The whole experience from booking with yourselves has been great and would defiantly use your services again, and would defiantly return to Cyprus and use the same villa. Many Thanks. Joanne McGowan & Family.

"The villa was perfect, very large and spacious with everything we needed. The location was very good a short walk to everything. Seriani Restaurant was very good we visited several times. Very satisfied with the service. We had a lovely holiday and enjoyed our stay at Villa Zara. Everything was perfect including the weather.

"The property was lovely with everything needed there. The location was great with everything more or less round the corner but far enough away from any nightime noise. We really enjoyed eating at Phideas Tavern and the Seriani restaurant.although i think all the restaurants and bars are all up to a good standard.Although we have been to Cyprus before we always enjoy going to Aphrodites rock for a swim in the lovely sea. The service provided by yourselves has been first class,very efficiant and we would definitly use and recommend yourselves to friends. The local managers were there if we needed them which we didnt but i feel confident that if we did they would they would be very good and helpful.

"We had a lovely break, the villa was very nice, clean and spacious. I am sure we will return for another holiday, and thankyou for arranging the taxi, Andy is very friendly and the drinks were appreciated on the way to the Villa! We liked the Elephant Restaurant, Mexican Restaurant, Phillipos Supermarket - well priced and plenty of choice and Coral Bay beach very nice and has a cafe with changing facilities etc. You provided a good friendly service with welcome pack was much appreciated on our arrival. Thankyou for the vouchers and return of the deposit and for all your help with the booking, hope you and the family have a lovely xmas.
