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.

Location Details

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

Review submitted by Charlotte from West Yorkshire (Submitted: 25/08/2015) ''We had a fantastic holiday in Paphos! The villa was amazing and very practical. The location was great, very peaceful but close to all amenities and beach. The local beach is very quiet and beautiful with great restaurants and bars within walking distance, especially 'the new horizon bar' and 'sienna restaurant' both serve great food, good atmosphere and very friendly. The service from 'let's rent online' has been fantastic and really helped us arrange a perfect holiday. The owner of the villa 'George' was very friendly and helpful. He gave great advise when we asked for it. The local taxi service provided from Andy was fantastic, he was always happy to help and extremely friendly and reliable. We definitely want to return to Cyprus in the next year or so. The next time we go away we will definitely be renting another villa. 9. Feel free to use any of my comments, I speak on behalf of our entire group which was 2 families with children aged 4, 2 12 year olds and a 14 year old. We all had an amazing holiday in a beautiful country. The villa was perfect for us and the children enjoyed going and picking fresh figs and pomegranates for breakfast. Thank you to Steven For helping out with all our enquiries very efficiently. Many thanks and kind regards. Charlotte & the rest of the King family & the Crowther family''

Review submitted by Jordan from Salisbury - (Submitted: 06/11/2014) ''The villa is stunning. A mix between traditional cypriot and modern contemporary design. It is very spacious and more than ideal for large groups. Providing plenty of comfortable living space for lounging, dining and bedrooms so you’ll never feel like you’re treading on other peoples toes during the stay. The outdoor area is a great feature and ideal for dining outside or simply relaxing by the pool. Located a short drive from Kissonerga it is situated beautifully between a selection of fruit orchards. It is about a 5-10 minute walk from the nearest shop and a 20 minute walk to the nearest beach. It is conveniently situated away from busy roads so in a very peaceful quiet area. The car that came with the property was an ideal addition to help get out and about on the island. Our favourite beach closest to the villa (about a 10 min drive) was Coral Bay, particularly the northernmost bay in front of the Coral Beach Hotel. We also visited Curium near Limassol which along with a beautiful beach has an amphitheatre and stunning archaeological history site located on the cliff top. The Famagusta Tavern in Avdimou is a great stop for dinner on the way back (I highly recommend the pork chops). A bit further afield the trip to the Troodos mountains was very picturesque and The Mill in Kakopetria was a great stop for lunch. Overall I have been very satisfied with the service provided. Both the original booking with Steven and communication with the owner George were more than satisfactory''.

Review submitted by Kaia-Liisa from Estonia - (Submitted: 08/10/2014) ''The villa was really excellent. Well equipped, much space for everyone, the car was a nice extra bonus :-) Pool was big, enough sunbeds and other sitting areas to enjoy beautiful weather.The location depends on people’s needs. In our case – it was the best. Quiet, lots of nature in and out of the garden. You could see the sunset from upstairs balcony. And nearby villages were in walking distance (for us at least). Also a big supermarket near and we did all our shoppings there. Up in Tala village there was one great restaurant. I don’t remember the name, started with letter M (Melitzia) and it was the first restaurant on the left when entering centre. Meze was excellent, also other dishes. And prices were reasonable. Main big shop was close – good choice of food, wines and everyday hygenic products. From beaches – of course Coral Bay. We also made a trip to Blue Lagoon – went by car to Latchi and then hiked up the mountain and then back through Blue Lagoon – it was hard but doable and views were amazing. Hiking took about 5 hours. Regarding your service, all anwsers and instructions came quickly, you were very helpful when we needed to be there earlier. George was really nice, he welcomed us, gave us fruits and food and wine for making our first arrival pleasant. He also visited us two times, took care about the pool, all the time asking if we were satisfied etc. It seems that he really cares about his visitors. Everything went smoothly for us''.

Review submitted by Spencer from Essex - (Submitted: 14/09/2014) ''A mix between modern and traditional with interesting architectural design inside. Nice plot on an unmade road, the vehicle included was very useful. Everyday we return to Cyprus we find somewhere new. We have visited the better known places but this time we found a very old monastery inland from Pomos and also Kalidonia Falls. Letsrentonline are very quick to respond to any queries and would use again without hesitation. The owner George popped in a few times and we learnt how to peel and empty a pomegranite properly. Rustic homely charm at it's best.''

Review submitted by John from Chesterfield - (Submitted: 05/11/2013) Villa marvellous, NO issues or complaints. Perfect location, just far enough away to be private but close enough to paphos etc. Tweedies in kissonerga is a must....Muji cheinese in coral bay needs to be avoided as does indian opposite royal beach hotel in paphos. Gg snack bar in paphos lovely surprise worth a visit. Very satisfied again thank you

Review submitted by Sally from Ipswich- (Submitted: 14/04/2013) "Had a great stay, just goes far too quickly! The house was great, well equipped & the car was a nice touch 2. The location was good for us as we live in the countryside & we found it very central for our sightseeing trips. We would recommend Tea for Two & couple of restaurants in Pafos Harbour - Pelicans ( I believe ) & a Chinese (cant remember the name!). You have provided an excellent service throughout. The owner of the property was great, on hand, but not too intrusive. We liked the climate & flight schedules are easy so we would return..

Review submitted by Janet from London - (Submitted: 13/08/2012) "BEAUTIFUL, CLEAN AND WELL MAINTAINED. PERFECT FOR VISITING MANY LOCATIONS, AND WE APPRECIATED THE SECLUSION. We would highly recommend HORSERIDING WITH RIDEINCYPRUS & LARA BEACH. GEORGE WAS VERY PLEASANT AND ACCOMMODATING.

Review submitted by Penelope from Birmingham - (Submitted: 07/09/2011) "This was our first visit to Cyprus and we absolutely loved it. We will certainly come back at some stage. The villa was absolutely graet. Just the right size and layout to fit in the 8 of us while allowing us space to get away from each other as well. George nd his family were absolutely terrific. They addressed all the queries and problems we had immediately. We had a problem with the jeep which they sorted in 24 hours, they recommended great beaches and places for us to go and we had ajam packed holiday doing a whole range of things. The booking you helped us with was seemless with only one minor hiccoup which was that the code on the key safe for the door wasnt our flight number. I havent checked but I am guessing that this is because we had to change our flights from Birmingham to Manchester and somehow the change wasnt picked up. Anyway even that didnt matter as the taxi driver (Andy) was absolutely great and sorted it all out for us before he dro pped us off. His english was great and he had cold drinks for the children in his car for the journey from the airport which was really needed after the long flight. Everyone went out of their way to make our stay great and when George went on holiday during our second week his son was terrific and close by should we need anything. We had some lovely meals and times out but in particular spent very relaxed faily time at the Village Inn in Kissonerga which had recently opened. The owner (Mario) was absolutely great and adapted menus for us (we had 3 vegetarians with us) and was so delightful with the children we really really enjoyed ourselves and thank you for helping us have such a wonderful family holiday. Hope this is . Kind regards, Penny
