Details of the Exterior
Outside, the villa has an extremely generous landscaped garden featuring a 10m x 5m private pool with ample room for sunloungers (8 supplied). A gazebo with adjacent stone built BBQ (there is also a Gas BBQ) and large table and chairs provides the ideal place for relaxing in the shade, taking in the views, alfresco dining and socialising with your party.
Winding up through the banana plantations after a short drive along the coast road from Paphos brings you to Peyia where the Villa Foster is located on the hillside overlooking Coral Bay. Peyia is a very typical Cypriot village. A beautiful ancient church forms the heart of the village while the narrow streets and alleyways are full of old and interesting houses adorned with colourful flowers and citrus trees. The village is still largely unspoilt with lively tavernas and friendly locals. You can also buy all your provisions including fresh meat and bread in the village stores the early morning aroma of freshly baked bread, sweet and savoury local pastries and cakes coming from the Peyia bakery is almost too much to resist! For the more energetic types there is the local and newly opened ‘Tower Fitness Centre’.
Things to do in the area include Paphos Bird Park, reptile park, horse riding, Akamas Peninsular & Lara Beach Nature Reserve (famous for turtles), 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 Peyia, as are numerous archaeological ruins such as the Tombs of the Kings and Paphos mosaics.
If you want to get out and explore some fantastic scenery, take a trip to the Akamas Peninsula, 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!
Paphos combines ancient history with a cosmopolitan, modern tourist resort. The area by the coast is known as Kato Paphos and boasts a pretty little harbour and plenty of open air cafes and bars. Further inland is the old town of Paphos, known by the locals as Ktima. With its narrow streets, hustle and bustle, covered market and typically Cypriot atmosphere, it is well worth a visit. As a consequence, Paphos is on UNESCOs World Cultural Heritage list.
Cyprus is famous as the birth place of the goddess Aphrodite, Venus in Roman mythology. She is known as the Ancient Greek goddess of love and beauty. Legend says that she emerged from the sea at Aphrodite’s Rock in a surge of sea foam.

We came to Cyprus as our daughter was getting married. We all stayed at Villa Foster and we have to say it was magnificent. There were 8 of us in the villa but such is its size, we never felt cramped. The location just 2km from Coral Bay and Peyia Village suited as great as we could get to both quickly and had the most peaceful place to relax and unwind. The views were amazing too. Sea and sunsets galore. The villa is very well equipped and assistance from Steven the booking agent was great. He went out his way to help us. We would recommend Villa Foster to everyone. Thanks again.

property was first class,but we were told it was within walking distance of coral bay an peyia
I would have to disagree with this. We did walk to coral bay one evening,but I would not recommend it. The younger members of our family are of the same opinion.
We hired a car, and it was a must.
Many thanks for your 5 star review. We are very pleased that you enjoyed the villa and the holiday so much. I am surprised by your comment about walking distance as we did try and make clear that the villa is 2km from both Peyia and Coral Bay and not walking distance to either. Coral Bay can be walked to at a push but not back from. We agree that car hire a must if travelling to and from the villa regularly and to get the most out of a Cyprus holiday in general. Thanks again.
We are a family of 5 and we stayed at Villa Foster from October 19th to October 26th. We were very pleased with our stay: the villa had pretty much everything one can hope for, both indoors and outdoors. The villa was very well maintained, clean and well equipped. We had high expectations based on pictures and reviews but those expectations were exceeded! We certainly could think of coming back again. Our stay was well worth the money!

''Fantastic. As always. Our third trip and it still doesn't fail to impress. Everything we need. A real home from home. Very quite as not really surrounded but only a 2 minute drive to the local supermarket and 5 minutes to the beach. The Last Castle is my own favourite and the Italian at the top of Coral Bay High street is also excellent. Satisfied with all service, yes. Saw the local Managers a couple of times. Very helpful. Our thid trip to the same spot so nothing we'd change.''
Review submitted by Craig from Bristol (Submitted: 04/09/2014) The villa was superb , we couldnt of asked for a more stunning villa, the view over the pool and beyond down to the coast of coral bay were in itself excellent . The interior of the property was equally as stunning with the tasteful furnishings and ample space, everything is catered for, outside the al fresco dining made the evenings even more pleasurable with the purpose built BBQ and outside ding area. For us the location was perfect as we had a rented car, everything we needed was within a 5 minute drive. I would recommend the Savvas grill and Peyia tavern for the local cuisine and on the paphos road fat mamas has always been a favourite of ours. We were recommended the watersports at Latci and took this up by hiring a boat for half a day stopping off in various picturesque lagoons along the way to the cape at the tip of the Akamas peninsula, absolutely fantastic day , value for money and would recommend it everyone. We were more than happy with the service provided. And special thanks to Steven for helping us have the best holiday we could of wished for, loved every minute of the experience. Gary and Louise were absolutely fantastic, they kept the place looking clean and tidy regularly cleaned the pool and also visited us to make sure we had everything we needed. Lovely people and an absolute pleasure to have met them, thanks to both of them for ensuring our holiday was enjoyable. To be honest I really dont think there is anything that could be improved on in regards to this property or the service provided , everything is 10/10.

“The property was of an excellent standard - Everyone of our group each stressed how they were very pleased with the villa and will definately stay there again, it was so nice we did not feel the need to venture out most days which made our stay a very relaxing one. We felt that the location was also good as it was quiet and peaceful. we walked into coral bay but did need a taxi back after brousing around the shops and eating. we walked to the Kiosk and walked back, only one LONG stretch of an upwood hill. (tiring but kept you fit). Coral bay = Zentas for cheapest cocktails and friendly staff, Palm grove for evening meals swordfish was lovely and everyone elses meals were good too we went on 3 occassions as it was good. Serienta (not sure if spelt correctly) best breakfast and definately value for money. Kleo bar was good for music and dancing. The Last Castle - excellent views & food and very very freindly people - this is where we had our reception meal. The Peyia Meze was absolutely gorgeous it just kept coming and coming, everything was cooked with so much flavour - Paphos harbour also had a few good bars that you felt at ease to sit and watch the world go by. We would reccommend all of the above. The Peyia town hall was where we had the actual wedding and i would also reccommend this for anyones wedding it was easy to book online and they were very freindly before and on the wedding day, they provided champaign and a gift from Peyia, the surroundings were lovely for the photographs. We were very satisfied all information provided was clear and understandable. I was also put at ease when you took over our booking as you hear of many people losing their monies on online bookings that the agent ceases to trade. We couldnt of asked for a better "Pool man" Gary was very informative and extremely helpful when we had asked a list of questions to help with the last minute wedding preparations, including phoning and booking the reception meal & taxi, phoning his wife for a hairdresser, for which she turned out to be the best "Boo" hairdresser would highly reccommend. Gary also gave us a list of places where to eat which was very helpful. he came and cleaned the pool without disturbing us at all.”

“Absolutley stunning, it had the wow factor!! Pretty close to coral bay (possible 25 minute walk) but so glad we hired a car! La Vigna (itallian restaurant on coral bay strip) food was delicious a bit pricer than most restaurants but worth it. Teppenyakki Restaurant again on coral bay stip, great entertainment, great food, definately worth a try. Waterpark was a brill day out and the harbour is so picturesque. We also found that Phillipos and Lidle where the better supermarkets (Cheaper). Very Satisfied, Thank you!! Everything was superb, what lovely professional people thank you both!!”

“We stayed at Villa Foster in June 2012 as a base for a family wedding. Steven was exceptionally helpful in making the booking, dealing with queries and booking extra items (cots etc) before our arrival. The villa is exceptional in terms of its prime location overlooking vineyards to the sea a huge corner plot super swimming pool and very spacious, fully equipped, high quality, modern accommodation. Gary & Louise, the local managers, take a real pride in looking after the villa and its guests and could not be more helpful and friendly. A brilliant stay at a super property. Highly recommended. – Well done Steven, it has been great giving our business to you! - Tony & Julie, Lancashire, UK”
Thanks for processing this Steven. Appreciate the vouchers as well - will do our best to use them! Villa Foster is lovely. Great views, high standard of furniture and excellently managed by Louise and Gary. Will definately stay again should we have family with us. Kind RegardsKaren
'This is definitely a company we will use again ! We have been impressed with the service provided from booking to actually taking our holiday. The Villa we booked - Villa Foster - was everything it was advertised to be and more. My family were in Coral Bay for a family wedding and we could not have wished for a nicer place to stay at. Gary and Louise who managed the villa were very helpful and provided a brilliant service. We usually stay at a family villa in Coral bay but will certainly look to booking with this company again should we require future accommodation'. Mnay thanks again. Angela Hamilton, Halifax.
