Overview

Hi, my name is Nick and I would like to introduce you to villa Luna.
If you are just considering a holiday in Cyprus, you may want to hire a hotel room.
But if you are looking for holiday accommodation that is truly superior in quality and style, then please join me as I walk you through this decadent villa.

The setting for the villa is on the prestigious Secret Valley golf resort. Surrounded by mountains and valleys, the glorious scenery is complemented by acres of unspoilt natural beauty and miles of virgin beach. But do not despair… you are not in the middle of nowhere. Secret Valley is conveniently located just off the main motorway that accesses both Paphos and Limassol. The Paphos international airport is an easy 12 minute drive and it’s a scenic 15 minute drive to the picturesque Paphos harbour and town centre.
In the more direct vicinity you will find the quaint traditional village of Kouklia (5 min drive west), here you will find true Cypriot hospitality. A meze at the local tavern is a must for all food lovers. The village is small but has the necessary amenities and facilities.
The world renowned five star Aphrodite Hills golf resort (5 min drive east) can provide you with an additional 18 hole championship golf course, gourmet dinners or a pampering day at the spa.
A short drive further and you will find yourself at the legendary birthplace of the goddess Aphrodite. It is so beautiful the legend insists that the goddess of beauty herself was born from the foam of the breaking waves of the sea.


The villa is ideal for golf lovers, romantic getaways, families or the young at heart.
But what is truly remarkable about this villa, is the quality of the finishes complemented with wonderful views of the sea and set in a very quiet and peaceful location.

The solid wood front entrance door opens into the main living area. This living room(fully air-conditioned) is bright with sunshine flowing in through a wall of glass patio doors that lead out onto the main outdoor patio The room is decorated with a modern Italian lounge suite, fine pictures, coffee and side tables. It has a 42’ plasma T.V, DVD and satellite system.
The villa also boasts a SONY PLAYSTATION 3 with Blue-Ray technology. So please feel free to bring the kid’s games along for their entertainment or bring along your Blue-Ray movies to view the best quality movies available.
Play in style on the HUGE TV screen.

The kitchen area is open plan and is a cook’s dream. It has modern appliances including fridge/freezer, oven, and hob filter coffee machine, waffle maker, blender, popcorn maker, griller and a variety of high quality designer pots and pans to make your cooking experience an event. You are on holiday…enjoy it.
For a simple cleanup, simply use the dishwasher and washing machine.

The dining room is open plan and very spacious (fully air-conditioned). It comfortably seats 6 adults around the modern solid oak dining table. Enjoy views over the swimming pool through the triple glass patio doors. There is a WC for your use on the ground floor.

A staircase from the living room leads you to the 3 bedrooms (2 double, 1 twin), all with double volume height:
The master bedroom is large, it boasts a king-size bed fixed around a beautiful bedroom suite. The side tables with their ambient night lamps warm the room. The room is of course en-suite with a shower, WC vanity unit and basin. The bedroom has large glass patio doors leading to a private patio. For all the true romantics out there, the master bedroom’s veranda is perfect. Here you can enjoy a nice glass of wine and lose yourself with a picture perfect view of the dramatic coastline of Paphos.
The second bedroom is a similarly decorated double bedroom with a king-size bed.
The third bedroom is a twin room. Two single beds with its side table. These beds can be pushed together to form a third double bed if required.
The second and third bedrooms share a common bathroom with a bath, WC and basin.

The great thing about Cyprus it the fact that the weather is so predictable, and although the villa is all the luxury comforts you want, you will probably be spending much of the day outside. The outdoor facilities will make your holiday extra special.
The main outdoor patio is perfect for entertaining. It is exceptionally large and has a lovely outdoor dining area and leads down to the swimming pool area.
The swimming pool is lovely 8M X 4M kidney shaped pool. 6 full size sun patio beds allow you to completely relax as your body absorbs the sunshine. Use one of the cooler boxes to keep your refreshments ice cold by your side.
For EXTRA comfort... we thought to throw-in 2 outdoor beds so that you may completely lose yourself in this breathtaking villa.
Should you want to stay outdoors for the day, try cooking up a storm with the barbeque area and the souvla (Greek BBQ to slowly cook meat on large skewers).
The green grass and landscaped gardens complete the outdoor entertainment area.

My aim is to provide my clients with above average quality accommodation that is meticulously clean with the very best of everything. Nothing is left to chance and your privacy will always be respected.

It’s the little things that make a holiday extra special. The attention to detail in and outside of the villa will give you a good start to a great holiday.

Don’t forget, it will be up to you to get out and enjoy Cyprus’ many attractions. Whether you enjoy a cultural day out, a day at the beach, a night on the town or just a relaxing quiet walk along the beach it’s what you do that will make your holiday unforgettable.

Venture out
Venture out

The very name Cyprus, it has been said, shimmers with an ages-old mystique. Today, history and hedonism are comfortably intertwined on the island. Ravishing five-star resorts within walking distance of well-preserved Greek and Roman ruins offer every amenity the modern traveller has come to expect and more to state of the art thalassotherapy health spas.

Venture away from the sybaritic shore - if you can bring yourself to - and succumb to the slow, seductive rhythms of the interior. There are old wine-producing villages with atmospheric winding streets and terraced vineyards. Explore Greek Orthodox churches nestled in the hills whose walls conceal vibrantly painted Byzantine frescoes.

Love Goddesses and Sacred Mountains
Along the route that leads from Secret Valley to Limassol, the roadway opens up to reveal a magnificent stretch of coastline where chalky white cliffs stand watch over a dazzling aquamarine sea. Here sun worshippers make detours for a picnic and a swim at Petra tou Romiou, a boulder that marks the spot where Aphrodite emerged from the sea foam in ancient times. In the Akamas region, hikers exploring the areas rich flora can cool off at the grotto where the love goddess bathed after her amorous interludes.
Throughout Cyprus, the typically Mediterranean landscape is still blessed with the timeless beauty of antiquity. There are crusader fortresses framed by tall cypress trees, Greco-Roman theatres carved out of cliffs and Byzantine monasteries perched improbably on mountaintops. Sophisticated cities successfully balance the ancient and modern.

Archaeologists report that the site of Paphos has been inhabited since the Neolithic period. It was a centre of the cult of Aphrodite and of pre-Hellenic fertility deities. Aphrodites legendary birthplace was on this island, where her temple was erected by the Myceneans in the twelfth century BC. The remains of villas, palaces, theatres, fortresses and tombs of the Classical, Hellenistic and Roman periods mean that the site is of exceptional architectural and historic value. The mosaics of Nea Paphos are among the most beautiful in the world.

Old Paphos
Old Paphos, now the site of Kouklia a five minute drive from Secret Valley, was seated on an eminence, at the distance of about ten stadia from the sea, on which, however, it had a roadstead. It was not far distant from the promontory of Zephyrium and the mouth of the little river Bocarus

Paul At Paphos
After landing at Salamis and proclaiming The Word of God in the synagogues (Acts 13:5), they traveled along the entire southern coast of the island of Cyprus until they reached Paphos (Acts 13:6). There, Sergius Paulus, the Roman proconsul, was converted after Paul rebuked the evil Sorcerer Elymas (Acts 13:6-12). It was at that point that Paul effectively became the leader. He was from then on called Paul, rather than his former name, Saul.

New Paphos
New Paphos (Nea Paphos), the currently inhabited town, was founded on the sea, near the western end of the island, and possessed a good harbour. It lay about 15 km northwest of the old city and Secret Valley.

The port of Kato PaphosToday Paphos, with a population of about 47.300, is a popular sea and a fast developing tourist resort, home to an attractive fishing harbour. It is divided into two major quarters: Ktima, on the sea terrace, is the main residential district, and Kato Pafos, by the sea, is built around the mediaeval port and contains most of the luxury hotels and the entertainment infrastructure of the city. The harbours of Paphos are not so important: the normal shipping goes via the harbour of Limassol. Just as is the marina of Paphos for fishing and other kinds of interest.



Interesting sites

The Castle of PaphosAt the harbour, there is the Castle of Paphos, originally built as a Byzantine fort to protect the harbour and rebuilt by the Lusignans in the thirteenth century, then dismantled in 1570 by the Venetians, who found themselves unable to defend it against the Ottomans, who in their turn restored and strengthened it after they captured the island. Saranta Kolones, Kato Paphos, near the harbour, is a castle built in the first years of the rule of the Lusignans (beginning of the twelfth century) maybe on the site of a previous Byzantine Castle. It was destroyed in the earthquake of 1222.

The legacy from its remarkable history adds up to nothing less than an open museum, so much so that UNESCO simply added the whole town to its World Cultural Heritage List. Among the treasures unearthed, are the remarkable mosaics in the Houses of Dionysos, Theseus and Aion, beautifully preserved after 16 centuries under the soil. Then there are the mysterious vaults and caves, the Tombs of the Kings, the Pillar to which Saint Paul was allegedly tied and whipped, the ancient Odeon Theatre and other places of interest including the Byzantine Museum and the District Archaeological Museum, with its attractive collection of Cypriot antiquities from the Paphos area, dating from the Neolithic Age to 1700 AD. Near Odeon, there are the remains of the ancient city walls, the Roman Agora and a building dedicated to Asklepeos, god of medicine.

The mosaic floors of these elite villas dating from the third to the fifth century are among the finest in the Eastern Mediterranean. They mainly depict scenes from Greek mythology.

The city contains many catacomb sites dating back to the early Christian period. The most famous is Saint Solomoni Church, originally a Christian catacomb retaining some of its twelfth century frescoes. A sacred tree at the entrance is believed to cure the ailments of those who hang a personal offering on its branches.

Near Petra tou Romiou, there is Palaepaphos, Old Paphos, one of the most celebrated places of pilgrimage of the ancient Greek world, and once an ancient city kingdom of Cyprus. Here are the ruins of the famous Temple of Aphrodite, the most ancient remains, go back to the 12th century BC. The temple was one of the most important places of cult and pilgrimage of the ancient world, till the 3rd-4th century A.D. The Museum, housed in the Lusignan Manor, is small but impressive with many finds from the area.

Ayia Paraskevi church in YeroskipouYeroskipou with its remarkable five-domed Byzantine church of Ayia Paraskevi, and its Folk Art Museum is a town in Paphos metropolitan area known for many years now for its special delight `loukoumi.

North-east of Paphos lies Ayios Neophytos Monastery, famous for its `Encleistra, Enclosure, carved out of the mountain by the hermit himself, which boasts some of the finest Byzantine frescoes of the 12th and 15th centuries. Near by too is the painted village church of Emba (Empa).

Four kilometres north of Paphos is the village of Lemba (Lempa), which has become home to numerous artists, many of whom have open studio shops, the sculpture known as the Great Wall of Lempa, by the Cypriot artist Stass Paraskos and the Cyprus College of Art.

Stayed Sunday 27 October 2013 with Family
A beautiful property. In fact much better than current pictures give it credit for. Very private plot and very attractive. Facilities at the property were of a very high standard. Nick was very helpful. Just check before booking if it is important to you that Blue Ray machine and x box is working - we had neither. Although Nick very kindly lent us an Android it was not quite what we had organised for. One of the real benefits of this property is its close proximity to a range of Cypriot villages with great food and atmosphere. Car essential though. Highly recommend.

Villa Luna was a beautiful villa to stay in - absolutely delighted with it. We couldnt fault it in any way. Its quite far out so the car is essential for getting around. It was absolutely spotless - not a speck of dust anywhere and well stocked with all the items you need ie: kitchen/bbq utensils, hairdryer, iron and ironing board. The pool was much larger than I expected and again was kept clean throughout our stay and the garden was immaculate. The only minor complaint I have is the lack of welcome pack that usually comes with a holiday rental which gives information on the surrounding area, where to eat places to visit etc. There was no guest book either which often has info on recommended places to go, eat etc. We also had no idea when to put bins out to be emptied etc but as I say, a minor complaint! I would certainly stay in villa Luna again and would not hesitate to recommend to my family and friends.

this is a beautiful villa, very clean and it cetainly exceeded our expectations, excellant value for money and a real bonus to have the free use of car. The agent and neighbours were very helpful, nothing was too much trouble and we would definitely go back.

I would reccomend this holiday villa to anyone. On arrival to the villa my 15 year old grandsons words were. " This is fab I feel like Gary Barlow ". It has everything you need and was very clean and comfortable. The car that came with the villa (which was must ) was again very clean and comfortable. The photos are excellent but really do not do the villa justice. The information that Nick had left regarding directions to certain places, and places to visit was very informative and spot on. Nick the owner came round to introduce himself and made sure that everything was ok and couldnt have been more helpful. We would certainly visit again.
Owner reply:

Hi Richard,Thank you for your kind words.I am very glad that you enjoyed your stay.I look forward to seeing you all again in the future.Nick

This is a fabulous property with absolutely everything your could possibly need. The car was basic but extremely useful when you are based in Secret Valley. We travelled to Paphos a few times but preferred to take time to explore the glorious scenery and beaches the area had to offer. I had reason to contact Nick a few times and he couldnt have been more helpful. We barbecued for at least half the time we were there and there was heaps of space inside and out for the five of us. As we were there for a family wedding we had friends up to join us for a few barbecues and there was plenty rooms for all to sunbathe, sit, swim and eat. if you are looking for a home away from home - this is it. It is close enough to Paphos if you want the city but if you want to experience real Cyprus, Secret Valley is an excellent base.
