After reading all the positive reviews on Trip Advisor in the months leading up to our stay we thought the villa was too good to be true and our expectations were very high. Having just spent two weeks there we can safely say we were not disappointed in the slightest and the villa is everything it's made out to be. The views of the harbour, hills and coast line are spectacular and we'd have breakfast outdoors overlooking them. All amenities have been thought of for the villa and there was even a welcome pack of such things as coffee, milk etc. There's a team who come to clean the pool twice a week and also change all the bedding and towels once a week. There was even a maintenance team on hand. We had to ring them once for something minor and they were on site within half an hour and had the problem fixed in no time. The location of the villa is part way up a hill in between Latchi and Neo Chorio. It is walking distance down the hill to Latchi however in the heat of an August day we found it too much and found it easier to cycle or get a taxi. It's an easier walk up to Neo Chorio which is a lovely traditional Cypriot village that we enjoyed visiting to enjoy a beer. There are supermarkets in Latchi however there isn't much choice for things such as meat and they are quite expensive. The team recommend a supermarket in Polis which we went to and needed a car for. Lot more choice there and we often stocked up so we could have BBQ's back at the villa. There was plenty to do in Latchi and the surrounding areas to keep us entertained however we found it just as easy to have lazy days at the villa sunbathing and dipping in the pool. All in all an excellent villa which we'd thoroughly recommend - the bar has been set now!
A perfectly equipped villa with breathtaking views. Local village restaurants within walking distance. Fantastic fish restaurants in nearby Latsi and Polis. Particularly outstanding cuisine at "The Old Town" restaurant in Polis.
Highly recommend a boat trip with Konstantinos of Akamas Trip & Fishing in Latsi harbour to fully appreciate the breathtaking coastline.
Once again we had the most perfect few days at the villa. We love coming here and seeing the new additions to what has become a real home away from home. This time we enjoyed relaxing evenings on the decking at the back of the villa, the outside lounger beds are super comfy. As always there was lemon drizzle cake waiting for us which we shared each afternoon with tea. The hot tub is also a great addition as we enjoyed a glass of bubbly one evening and took in the views. I can't wait to be back again!
This was my third visit to Villa Genevieve and yet again it did not disappoint! Such wonderful attention to detail that made our stay effortless. The view of the bay is something I will never tire of. It recharges the soul and makes you forget your worries. The hot tub is so much fun, we loved it!
The taverna (two minutes up the hill) does wonderful food and The Old Town in Polis is a MUST to visit for a sublime cuisine experience. Latchi, is a very pretty fishing village full of restaurants and bars. So there is something for everyone.
My family and I visited Maria's beautiful villa this month (again!) and hope to be coming back for many more years. What a wonderful piece of paradise with just the right amount of everything - sun, sea, swimming, food (Ok maybe too much food)!!
Maria you have been a wonderful host, so helpful and provided clear instructions, great recommendations for dinner and activities, and first-class service as always.
Thank you so much for letting us experience your beautiful home once again. Can't wait for next time.
I spent 5 days in Villa Genevieve at the beginning of December and it was just the holiday I needed!
The villa itself is immaculate, stylish, comfortable and the view across the bay is second to none. I spent many an hour with a cup of coffee / glass of wine looking out at the mountains and sea, perfect if you enjoy a good sunset. Tastefully decorated with everything you could need (super comfy beds, air conditioning, wifi, great showers, HOT TUB and I was very pleased to discover a dishwasher, no washing up on my holiday!).
Living in London I was initially shocked by the peace and quiet and felt instantly relaxed as soon as I arrived. Perfect for spending some quality time with loved ones, either on the terrace or by the pool without a care in the world!
Just a short taxi journey or drive to nearby Latchi harbour and Polis the villa is in a great location. I spent a wonderful 5 days catching up with good friends, enjoying the scenery and indulging in fantastically fresh food (the Old Town restaurant in Polis was flawless, the menu, food and hospitality was so good we ate there three times). We even managed to fit in a manicure at On Nails salon.
So sad to leave, I'm already trying to work out when I can go back! Thank you so much to Maria for letting us escape to this much loved home away from home, it was the PERFECT way to end the year.
