Villa overview - owner's description
Villa Odysseas is a very substantial and unique stone built holiday home situated in the lower reaches of Tala and within easy reach of all amenities.
The villa is very traditional, yet with many contemporary features and benefits from 4 bedrooms all with en-suite, a cloakroom, a dining area with adjacent kitchen (which is fully equipped with all modern appliances including dishwasher) and a large open plan lounge area with choice of seating, open fire, wi-fi and Satellite TV.
The exterior of the villa (situated within a 4500 sqm plot) is exceptional with long private driveway leading past the fruit orchards to a large parking area with covered car port. The private swimming pool is 11m x 4m and is extremely private due to the grounds around it and distance between the few neighbouring houses.
The private pool area is surrounded by large patios with sun loungers, a very nice decking area with outside sofa set and the main terrace for dining which is covered with a pergola fitted with woven fabric for shade. There is an upstairs balcony also which affords wonderful views to the Sea with Paphos in one direction and Coral Bay in the other.

DETAILS OF THE EXTERIOR
Villa Odysseas is an attractive stone built villa with large grounds surrounding. The 4500m2 plot includes a fruit orchard which supplies a vast range of usual and unusual fruits depending on the season. There is a small swing in the adjacent garden areas.
The enclosed and landscaped gardens include an 11m x 4m swimming pool with outside shower. The pool is surrounded by areas for loungers and a barbecue. The villa has six loungers and two large umbrellas to make the most of the pool area. A raised decking area looks back into the house and across the gardens and hosts a sofa set which is ideal for enjoying a coffee, breakfast or a pre-dinner aperitif.
Nissan Terrano 7 seater 4 x 4 included in the rental price.
The villa has a very central location and is accessed from a lovely country lane on the edge of the village of Tala near Kissonerga. It’s just a 10-15 minute stroll into Kissonerga village where you’ll find a good selection of shops (George’s supermarket is less than 1km away and has everything you need), a bank and a few restaurants, one of which is an English style country pub (The Village Inn) if you are missing home. There is also a contemporary sports bar for those football fans out there.
Within easy reach by car (1km up gradual hill) is Tala Square which is popular for lunches, relaxing with a drink and evening meals on the verandas of the high quality restaurants, many with stunning views over Paphos and to the Sea. (The Gallery (upmarket), The Square (Popular with English-set menus etc), Masa Soura (Greek) and ‘Stamna’ (traditional Cypriot tavern) are all very popular with other cafes and eateries well worth a try also.
Tala is a popular and growing village, just 5km north of Paphos, set on a south facing hillside looking out over the blue Mediterranean. Immediately north of the village is the famous Agios Neophytos monastery dating from 1159. This is well worth a visit even if just for a coffee or to buy some traditional honey.
In the fields around Tala you’ll find vineyards, orange, lemon, olive and almond trees and banana plantations.
You can drive to Villa Odysseas from Paphos Airport in about thirty minutes. From the villa it’s an easy drive into Paphos for some of the best shopping you’ll find anywhere in Cyprus.
It’s also an easy drive to the centre of Peyia – a vibrant community stretching from the bright lights of Coral Bay to the traditional centre of the old village.
There is a good choice of beaches within an easy drive. Try Coral Bay (4km) – a great beach with every amenity you could imagine. Alternatively drive up the coast road into the Akamas Region (10km) to enjoy the quiet and unspoilt beaches of Lara and beyond.
There’s a golf course at Tsada (Minthis Hills) approximately 20 minutes drive away. Further golf courses at Secret Valley and Aphrodite Hills can also be reached in less than 40 minutes. (Elea Golf Club designed by Nick Faldo opening Oct 2010)

"Just back from Cyprus and Villa Odysseas - we had a wonderful time , the villa was brilliant and the location just perfect, quiet and private but a short drive to restaurants / beach etc. George was fantastic, a very charming and helpful owner with lots of great recommendations - The layout was perfect for our group and very spacious - the pool being the winning feature - all the children just loved it - we had wonderful BBQs and many lazy days by the pool - would highly recommend to other families and those wanting a spacious, private and stunning villa. Please pass on our thanks and I am very happy for you to use this as a review for others.
Best wishes Theresa Hawkins
