Peaceful Villa Antonis
Fantastically clean, well-organised, well-equipped villa in a quiet and peaceful area of Tala. The welcome pack was most appreciated as we arrived in the late evening. Everything was clean and tidy and we felt really comfortable from the start. I would highly recommend staying here.

Beautiful & immaculate villa, with a private garden & fabulous pool!
We have literally just returned from a week's stay in Villa Antonis, and what a fabulous week it's been. The villa was spotless on arrival, and Barry & Elaine who look after the villa had left us some essentials, bread, milk, water etc which was thoughtful as we didn't arrive until late due to a 3hr delay. The villa has a real home from home feel with use of a washing machine (reduces the amount of clothes to take) t.v. with movie channel (great after a cooked meal in & few glasses of wine) and a BBQ (which we made good use of). We would say a car is essential for your stay at the villa as it's quite remote, even the local restaurant, Casa Luna, is a steep hill walk home of about 25mins, and we mean steep! Getting about is really easy by car so don't be put off. The main roads are easy to navigate & fairly well signposted, Google Maps helped us out lots too. There are so many wonderful places to visit but we particulary liked Coral Bay, Paphos Harbour, Aphrodites Rock, Kourion & Tala Square. There are so many places to eat out with fabulous food, but a few of our favourites are Casa Luna 5mins by car from the villa, delicious Lamb Kleftico. The meat meze at The Pelican in Paphos Harbour was fabulous too. A little further afield was Mahmouts in Limassol where we enjoyed a traditional mixed kebab. For those of you who prefer to eat at the villa, there's a Lidl about 10mins down the road, but we found the local stores stocked pretty much everything you needed & were very competitive. Right from the get go of booking the villa & organising car hire, Jo, the owner, was always at the end of an email with support & advice. This was very much appreciated. All in all we had a wonderful stay in Cyprus & would definitely come back, and wouldn't hesitate in recommending Jo & Nick's lovely home for a relaxing stay on this beautiful island.

We have just spent two weeks in this beautiful villa. Very quiet location.
Our two week holiday in this very quiet location was lovely. The villa was immaculate. Very clean and all the equipment needed to make our stay comfortable. We don’t eat out every night and felt quite at home , chilling by the pool lights. No mosquito attacks. Loads of places to go including coral bay beach and the local restaurants. We did use a car as you are in the hills but found the amphitheatre bar just 5 minutes walk , lovely food and beautiful views. Perfect villa for perfect holiday.
Lovely property set in charming garden with great pool.
Villa Antonis is a delightful villa. The property is perfectly laid out with a spacious living area leading out onto the lovely garden/pool area. The kitchen is very well equipped and spacious. Both bedrooms have spacious en suites and the upstairs balcony is perfect for early evening; taking in the views, watching the sunset and sipping a glass of the excellent value, local wine. The pool is well maintained and, although set in a residential area, the outdoor space feels very private. We loved exploring the beaches in the area; Lara beach is well worth a visit; a beautiful, unspoilt sandy beach with spectacular waves. We also enjoyed Potima Bay and Coral Bay Beaches. A visit to Kathikas resulted in us finding a lovely, authentic taverna. The centre of Tala is a 20 minute walk away and offers a variety of places to eat and drink. We enjoyed the Melitzia tavern, which offers a great selection of traditional dishes and a vibrant atmosphere. The Stamna taverna is also worth a visit, excellent value, good food and friendly staff. I would highly recommend this excellent property; it is also very good value for money. This was our first visit to Cyprus but we are planning to return.
*****The perfect holiday*****
This was our second holiday at Villa Antonis and again was the perfect holiday. The villa is well equipped, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The outside area had both sun and shade to relax in together with a lovely clean refreshing swimming pool. The village of Tala is an ideal central location even though you would definitely need to hire a car. Jo the owner was also extremely helpful nothing was too much trouble. My husband and I have both agreed that we would returning for a third time next year.

Villa Antonis is a beautiful villa, nicely furnished and well kept. We have just returned from staying there for a week and couldn’t fault the property. It’s advisable to hire a car though and Johanne assisted us by supplying details of a reliable company. Can reccomend eating at Melitzia Taverna in Tala Square. Will definitely return.

Delightful Villa Antonis.
Our first impression was great, it was a very accurate description of the property. The layout of the property was very good, a lovely clean kitchen with all the kitchen equipment you could possible require. The lounge/dinning room was lovely with a great view of the pool. The bedrooms were adequate and one had a very nice on-suite, although the double bed was a bit small for us personally and we had a bedroom each. The whole property was spotless and believe me we are very fussy. The owner of the property was very efficient sending us directions (you do need a car) was very prompt in returning our deposit. The Villa was cleaned half way through our stay, Barry & Elaine the management team were nice, helpful and very efficient. A welcome pack was left for our arrival which was a very nice gesture and most welcome if you have a late flight. The outside area was fabulous - with a BBQ and a really lovely swimming pool which was maintained twice weekly. Lovely far reaching views of the sea. The local area was great - we loved Tala the local restaurants were great and we felt very much at home in Cyprus, there are great villages and towns to visit too many to mention, the people are friendly and it is still still reasonably priced compared to Spain and Canaries. In all, we just loved Cyprus. Would we go again - without a doubt, Would we rent the Villa Antonis - definitely, it was great value for money. Thank you Jo, we loved your beautiful little Villa, you are a lovely lady.
Immaculate comfortable well equipped villa
Lovely place to chill out. everything you could want. local restaurants were good but extremely hilly so could not walk but god taxi service good and the amphitheatre café was a pleasant walk, and the view from there especially with beer in hand was delightful. thoroughly recommend
Mr and Mrs Evans
We both would like to thank you so much for letting us stay at your beautiful villa. We had a fantastic week and thought that the villa was superb. You have thought of everything where equipment is concerned. It was like home from home. Thank you also for the welcome pack. As we were sunbathing(I’m afraid that l’m a sun worshipper) we watched the yellow tit feeding her young which are nesting in the end ceramic pot on the veranda- amazing!
We would love to return one day. Cyprus is a beautiful place and your villa was outstanding. We would highly recommend it to all our friends.
J & A
Great sized villa and got everything you need. Suggest you get a car to explore around. BBQ is great to cook on and to enjoy the surroundings whilst you eat!! The pool is warmer in the summer than other times of year I guess as it is not heated.
Sue and Dave R
Great villa, lovely holiday!
5 of 5
Our first stay at Antonis villa and it certainly didn't disappoint. A high quality villa which has the welcoming feel of a much loved home. Lovely and clean (sparkling clean!), spacious, well equipped, nicely decorated and ample space for 4 guests. Pool is very inviting especially in the hot weather and the air conditioning kept us cool at night.
The Villa is only two hundred metres or so from the amphitreatre so a car is a must. The location provides the villa with spectacular views and is only 15 minutes to the seafront.
A nice welcome pack was very well received after a long journey as we were delayed by over an hour and a half, which meant we didn't have to rush out to buy supplies.
We received 'world class' service from the villa's owner and have already booked again for next year. We would highly recommend this villa.
First villa holiday and it will not be our last, beautiful villa, peaceful surroundings, what more could you want?
The villa was spotlessly clean, well equipped with everything you could possibly think of and the welcome pack was much appreciated after arriving so late.
The pool area was FABULOUS, so good we found it hard to tear ourselves away to do anything else through the day, total relaxation bliss.
Car hire is essential, yet again another first for us and we managed fine.
From first initial enquiry with Jo (owner) everything was simple and clear.
Barry and Elaine (managers) were lovely and friendly, we would not hesitate to stay here again in the future.
So if you are after something away from it all but within reach if you want it, you will not be disappointed.

Excellent accommodation in great location
5 of 5
This is our second visit to Villa Antonis having had such an enjoyable time in 2016. The Villa is very well equipped with everything you could need for a comfortable stay. Having the swimming pool is very welcome to help cool off on the very hot days. The Villa is on the edge of Tala, a small village in the hills, about 10 minutes drive from Paphos. We hired a car for the two weeks of our holiday which allowed us to explore Paphos and further afield.
There are plenty of local shops and supermarkets in and around Paphos making self-catering very easy.
We would highly recommend this accommodation and we will certainly be returning.
Simon and Jessica W
We felt totally at home from the minute we arrived at this lovely villa. The apartment was immaculately cleaned and maintained, beautifully furnished and exceptionally well appointed. We had everything that we needed for a peaceful and relaxing holiday. Communication from Jo and Barry were both excellent. Thank you.
Well equipped villa nice location
Just back from 2 week stay at Villa Antonis

My wife and I are planning to move out to Cyprus next year so we were keen to find a Villa in the Tala area where we hope to live. Jo's Villa was perfect, so much so we are now thinking of bringing our plans forward! 😀
As others have said the Villa is exceptionally clean and well-maintained, and Jo the owner, along with Barry and Elaine who look after the property, were all extremely helpful and welcoming. Even Steve the gardener and the pool man were friendly 😀
We wanted somewhere private but close enough to local amenities and the Villa was perfect. You do need a car but we knew that before we booked and so was never a problem.
I think my wife became very attached to the Villa and was very reluctant to leave yesterday! But the whole experience has strengthened our resolve to move to somewhere in the Tala area next year.
I have no hesitation in recommending this Villa, and would like to thank Jo for allowing us to stay in her lovely home

Lovely villa and location
Our first stay at this villa and in Tala. The location was lovely with views up the hills and down to the sea, it was very peaceful when we visited which suited us just fine.
All the facilities mentioned in the advert were spot on, the villa was clean and tidy and the property manager came to check everything was ok, fantastic.
It was great to have some basics left for us like bread, spread, jam, milk, tea and coffe, our flight was a late one so we arrived at the villa after midnight, which meant we didn't need to rush out to find the local shops in the morning. This made a great start to a relaxing 10 days holiday.
The pool was lovely and having the steps down into it made getting in and out easy, no struggling with burning hot ladders. It was a different climate up there as well, no overbearing humidity like further down towards the coast, some nice breezes to help keep you a bit cooler, but not much.
If your like us and like to eat out there were plenty of places in Tala, there is also a well stocked shop at the bottom of the hill if you want to eat in. Also there was an amphitheater with a cafe just a five minute walk away, the views were lovely from there and if you are lucky you might be able to take in a show.
We didn't fancy walking up and down hills in boiling heat and used a car to get around mainly, there was always plenty of parking wherever we went. I would highly recommend hiring a car.
We did see a few ants but as long as you tidy up after yourself it's not a big deal. We also got to see praying mantis, lizards and the odd snake around the outside of the villa if your interested in the local wildlife. The fly screens were great at night for keeping the air flowing into the villa and keeping any animals out.

Well appointed, well presented and we'll equipped.

The village of Tala lies to the northeast of Paphos and is an ideal base from which to discover the secrets of Paphos and the surrounding areas. There is a very good general supermarket and this is complemented by the excellent tavernas/restaurants within the village. Because of its location a car is required but with the cars driving on the left it seemed like "home from home"
The villa itself was beautifully maintained as was the private pool and the communication with, and instructions from, the owners was excellent and comprehensive.
We were a group of 2 couples and I would certainly recommend the villa and opt to try to stay there again should we revisit the area in the future.
Mike and Pam
A very enjoyable stay in a very well equipped villa. Warm enough to enjoy the pool. Excellent food at the Melitzia Taverna. Sunny and warm everyday. What more could you want. Thank you
Jane and Nick
Hi Jo & Nick,
Thank you so much for letting us rent your villa – everything was top notch and cleanliness was perfect. Very well equipped, couldn’t fault anything.
Will be happy to write a review for you on both sites.
We had a great family time together, enjoyed some fantastic meals out (& in!) – visited Polis & Pomos which we loved.
Really appreciated the welcome pack, as with an 1.5 hour delay on the way out, we didn’t get near Tala until gone midnight when all the shops were shut!
Thanks again for all your friendly communication!
Jane, Nick & family.

Very tidy,spotlessly clean villa on the outskirts of Tala. Very well equipped with most things that you are likely to need, including the necessary (!) hairdryer. Definitely need a car though, due to the local geography - steep hill down to road to cross over the ravine into Tala square. Only about 1.2km but the steepness is a "challenge" on a full stomach. Good access to everywhere from the villa by road. Nice walk up to the monastery, further up the hill (past the amphitheatre café). Melitzia tavern, just off Tala square was a lovely, family run place. Excellent "authentic" food - stifado & afelia just melt under the fork!! Must visit Polis and eat at Chix Chox.
Gareth & Nicky
A truly fantastic holiday in a beautiful villa. All the facilities we could need. Pool is great. Exactly what we had hoped for on our first villa holiday.
Garden is lovely, safe and private. Really cannot praise Villa Antonis enough. Will be definitely be looking to return next year.
Both owners and managers were exeptionally friendly and helpful.
Gordon & Julie
We had a wonderful experience for our first time abroad.Villa is amazing and so was our stay. We would highly recommend the villa and will be returning again.
Thank you also for your help and also the property managers for greeting us and making us feel welcome and for recommending places to go.
Great Villa and Pool, clean and well maintained
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Just spent a week at the Villa, perfect place for a relaxing holiday. The Villa and pool are very clean and well maintained, although a car is necessary due to its location but the trade of for having peace and quite is a no brainer. The owner Jo is extremely helpful and is keen to make your stay perfect, I would highly recommend this Villa and will be looking to book up for the next visit to Cyprus.
Well located and spotlessly clean villa - everything you could wish for. Loved every minute of our stay at Villa Antonis
We have been to Cyprus on three previous occasions and this trip, our fourth, was our first time self-catering. We selected the Villa Antonis from the Owners Direct website and the details and description were accurate. When we arrived the Villa was very clean and extremely well equipped with everything you could need. The swimming pool was also very clean and well maintained. The Villa is ideally located on the edge of Tala, however a car is essential especially if exploring Paphos and Cyprus. The main shopping is in Mesogi and Paphos. We will be returning to Cyprus for future trips and, if available, we would certainly use Villa Antonis again. We would highly recommend the Villa. Jo and Nick (the owners) were very helpful and made everything easy for us when we were making the booking.
Lovely stay - home from home - perfect villa with the baby.
Another wonderful holiday in Villa Antonis. Villa was again spotlessly clean. Enjoyed the peaceful location and privacy of the property. This is the third time staying in Villa Antonis and will return. Thank you
Villa description very accurate,spotless & maintained to high standard. Quiet location with good views but close to shops, bars & restaurants. .Management couple very friendly & helpful. Car is essential a good base for exploring this part of the island.We really enjoyed our stay, highly recommended.Hope to return later this year
Beautiful villa. Had a lovely time here.
Just returned from a second wonderful 9 days in villa Antonis , we stayed in this villa 2014 ,the villa was spotlessly clean, and had everything needed for a perfect holiday including wonderful views of pathos from the balcony , the villa is situated close to tala square and amenities and yet extremely peaceful and private ,the pool and surrounding areas are spacious and delightful with mature shrubs and palm trees ! ,we had breakfast out under the palm trees every morning, these give welcome shade during the very hot summer months . The property managers were excellent and kept in touch. We will definitely be back again.
We really enjoyed our week here at the villa and in Cyprus. The villa was in a perfect location.
Barry and Elaine the property managers came the next day just to make sure we had settled in okay. In all a perfect holiday.
We had a fabulous 2 week stay at Villa Antonis. Perfectly located for a peaceful holiday but close enough to all the amenities. The villa was absolutely spotless and had everything one would need. This was one of the most relaxing holidays that we have had for a long time.
Stayed several weeks at the villa and found it to be faultless. Excellent facilities everything one could possibly need to have a stress-free holiday. Pool and villa maintained to a very high standard and situated in a beautiful peaceful location. Tala Square is situated close to the villa where several restaurants can be found. The villa ticks every box.
Lovely villa had a great week. Enjoyed Tala Square.
Great Villa, great weather and great island.
Our second stay at this villa. The villa again was spotless on arrival and we enjoyed our stay.
We will be back.
Villa was spotlessly clean, comfortable and well furnished. Very peaceful location being only a 5 minutes drive to Tala Square. Pool very well maintained during our stay twice a week and no disruption to us. Will definitely be back to stay here again.
Villa was private, quiet, spotlessly clean, comfortable and homely, the pool and surrounding area was stunning as were the views.
A lovely clean villa in a superb location. Thoroughly enjoyed our time here.
Our stay in the villa has been very pleasant and comfortable. The house is much clean, very organised and equipped and in optimal position. Us like also because it is so much luminous. The swimming pool is beautiful!. We hope we can come back to Cyprus from Italy.
Loved the villa.
