The setting is both serene and spectacular with the rolling hills of the nearby villages and the not too distant sea at Latchi giving views you'll remember forever.

With its many restaurants, central square, supermarkets and other amenities it really is the best of both worlds. Latchi Beach and Marina are just a further 5 minutes drive away where you can sample local fish, hire a boat, do watersports or just relax on the soft golden sand.
Peristerona village (6km) is nearby With its mini-market selling fresh (natural) organic produce, coffee shops and friendly locals. Peristerona is primarily an agricultural village producing citrus-fruit vegetables, cereals, olives and almonds. The name Peristerona derives from the Greek word for dove or pigeon (peristeri).The village of Steni (8km) provides a further choice of coffee shop and traditional taverna for dining during the day or in the evening. In Lysos (5km) you will find a renowned hotel (Paradisos Hills) with excellent restaurant, a further taverna, and a few other shops. Activities in Lysos include horse riding, clay pigeon shooting and many walks and mountain bike trails for those who like to be active.
The area around the villa is always a very green due to the lush vegetation. The smell of the pine trees add to the atmosphere with views that are hard to beat anywhere in the world. It all looks particularly special in winter and spring months and is ideal for photographers, artists and those who like to walk and even hike. Other attractions in the area are the famous 'Museum of Arsinoe' showcasing a stunning collection of Byzantine artefacts.

We had perfection in Pelathousa! and cannot recommend this beautiful property more highly.
Like other reviewers, communication was great with the owners and they were fully contactable should we need it during our entire stay.
Beautiful location with hardly a car passing by. Having said that, Polis is only a ten minute drive away when you are in the hub of things once more.
Many thanks for a very enjoyable holiday
