Stunning holiday home situated in private elevated position with amazing views of Argaka Bay. Glistening private pool, hot tub, Ping-Pong, amazing sea views. Easy reach of restaurants, bars and beach.
Welcome to ‘Villa Leni’, a stunning holiday home situated in a private elevated position overlooking the unspoilt coastline of Argaka Bay, Latchi and the Mediterranean Sea. Argaka is a very affluent and tranquil location situated just outside the traditional yet vibrant town of Polis just North of Paphos.
The impressive 4 bedroom, 3 Bathroom detached Cyprus Holiday which is ideal for couples seeking privacy, large families or other groups of friends, has been designed, furnished and landscaped to the highest standards and offers a real taste of traditional Cypriot village life. Enjoy relaxing on a sun lounger by the private pool (which can be heated), alfresco dining on the terrace (or bbq area), your favourite aperitif on one of the upstairs balconies (as the sun sets over the clear blue waters) or enjoy a Jacuzzi bath whilst watching the twinkling lights of Latchi Marina in the evening. Perhaps you will do each one every day!
After leaving the coast road, the villa is easily accessed and it is possible to walk to the local amenities as desired. Several Tavernas as well as the beach itself forms part of a beautiful stretch of coastline going all the way to Latchi and the Akamas Nature Reserve in one direction and ‘Pomos’ (the last village in the South of Cyprus) in the other. There is even an Irish Bar just 1km away which has Wi-Fi, entertainment, great food and drinks selection and overlooks the Sea from its verandah.
The villa is accessed by security controlled gates which lead up a long driveway past the orange and lemon trees until you reach your private holiday haven.
What immediately strikes you is the villa's stature, private position, glistening private pool and of course the stunning Sea Views. Those of you with young children will have difficulty in containing their excitement at the play equipment on the lawn area but perhaps after a long journey from home and the warmth of a Cyprus afternoon, the private pool will still be favourite for trying out first.
The villa's front door opens into a large airy open plan space comprising the lounge, inside dining area and kitchen. The lounge is furnished with 2 large real leather sofas and has a 42" Flat Screen TV with Satellite & DVD player. There is an open fire for those who wish to take advantage of some daytime sunshine and a cosy evening atmosphere in cooler winter months.
The adjacent dining/breakfasting area is equipped with a wooden table and eight chairs. The fully equipped kitchen has all modern appliances including washing machine, dishwasher, large fridge/freezer, oven, hob and extractor hood, microwave and many other extras (coffee maker and frother included).
Perhaps the most impressive part of the ground floor is the seating area with feature windows overlooking the private pool and Sea beyond. This area is equipped with 2 large sofas which allows a good choice of seating in the inside areas.
Making up the ground floor is a twin bedroom (useful for those with mobility issues) and an en-suite shower room with bath and shower over.
Upstairs, the master bedroom is a double bedroom with king-sized bed. The bedroom further benefits from a choice of 2 balconies, fitted wardrobes with TV (can control Satellite channels), dressing table/mirror and an en-suite bathroom with Jacuzzi bath and shower over.
The second bedroom is a double bedroom (again with king-sized bed) and the third is a twin. Between the bedrooms is a large bathroom with bath and shower. All bedrooms benefit from TV's neatly set within the fitted wardrobes with Satellite controlled by the receiver in the lounge (all except the master bedroom).
The villa is fully air-conditioned with a sophisticated modern system. The villa benefits from flyscreens throughout. A travel cot and highchair are supplied free of charge on request. Other extras such as hairdryer, pool towels, and safety deposit box are also provided. The villa has an underfloor heating option at a supplement.
Wi-Fi is included in the rental rate
The outside areas of 'Villa Leni' in Argaka are accessed by a long private driveway with fruit orchards on either side. There is ample parking at the rear and side of the house including under a shaded car port with space for 2 cars. A large area laid to lawn with childrens play equipment (2 x swings, chute, see saw and climbing apparatus) sits to the left of the house as you approach and allows for children to play safely (in view of all outside seating areas).
The centrepiece of the holiday villa's ground is a very inviting 9m x 4m private pool (which can be heated) with jacuzzi hot tub positioned at the end. The spacious pool terrace is nicely equipped with 8 large sun loungers that benefit from large overhanging parasols and drinks tables. A picnic bench allows for casual snacking or coffee while absorbing the fresh sea air.
A large gazebo with table and chairs to seat 8 comfortably for lunch or dinner is accompanied by a large stone built BBQ and clay oven. This creates the ideal setting for alfresco dining and socialising with your party on holiday.
Now with Ping-Pong Table
An outside shower and long terrace with further table and chairs to seat 8 completes the outside areas.
Most of the outside areas afford spectacular uninterrupted views of the whole coastline area as well as the impressive hillside backdrop. The pretty flowers, shrubs and trees add to the atmosphere, making it the ideal place for relaxing in the sun or shade.
The Local Area
Villa Leni is situated in the heart of Argaka, a beautiful and somewhat unspoilt Cypriot Village sandwiched between the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea and some spectacular mountains filled with pine trees. Argaka is home to a number of traditional Cypriot restaurants, a beach bar and an Irish Bar (please ask about their kids club facility) as well as a bakery and 2 mini-markets. Many of these amenities are in walking distance of the villa or within a very short car journey. Travel a little way and you reach the bigger town of Polis. There is plenty of activity to choose from, whether you wish to dine in one of the many restaurants, shop at some larger supermarkets, hire mountain bikes, quad bikes or just watch the world go by in the ambience of the traditional village square.
The nearby Latchi beach is renowned as one of the best on this side of the island and not as crowded as the beaches in and around Paphos itself (which can be reached by car in 30 minutes or under). Latchi beach is famous for its clear blue sea, soft white sand and a great selection of watersports which are readily available. Take one of the boat rides (or even hire your own) to the ‘blue lagoon’, have a swim and/or snorkel, then come back to the pretty harbour/fishing port and have the famous ‘Fish Meze’ where you will be served approx 20 dishes including some of the freshest catches of the day whilst watching the world go by.
For the more adventurous, you can enter the ‘Akamas’ Nature reserve and go all the way round to ‘Lara Beach’ famous for its turtles and wonderful beach. If it is unspoilt Cyprus you are looking for, this is a great area to visit. You may even venture into the nearby villages of Peristerona, Lysos and Miliou or further on to Kathikas (with its vineyards and wineries), Droushia and Panagia. Other fantastic scenery can be taken in at Cedar Valley and the Troodos mountain range where in Winter, you can even Ski!
