“Private and Spacious Villa”
Reviewed 3 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Villa Callimore is a large 3 BR Villa with it's own pool, AC and all facilities and amenities. It was perfect for our young family especially with the washing machine provided but would suit adult travellers as well. Only down side is it is remote from the village and attractions so you need to drive, but that is the best way to see the sights anyway.
Pissouri is a beautiful little village in the centre of cyprus and makes a great jumping off point for any of the main sights.
Recommend Bunch of Grapes and O'Vrakas in town and Cyprus Diving Adventures if younwant to go diving.

“Great Villa”
Reviewed 18 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Many thanks Richard for our stay in your villa, we had a great time and will look forward to a return visit. The villa has all the amenities home from home and the pool was most welcome every day as temperatures hotter than usual hit 43c . There are plenty of good restaurants around our personal favourite being Bunch of grapes beautiful old setting and fab food, however in most restaurants we turned up at asked if we had a reservation which we were not used to in Paphos .
We had to call the manager once as no water but Kay was excellent and had a plumber out in no time . I am sure anyone booking Villa callimore will have a great time would advise a car.

“Excellent views”
Reviewed 22 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Our first trip to Cyprus and we wanted a base where we could travel around and see a lot of the country, with a view to possibly retiring!

The villa is stunning, not overlooked at all - unless the people in the hills had binoculars! It was very spacious with plenty of wardrobe space. Kitchen was well equipped and we didn't need our trusty travel corkscrew!

One reviewer has mentioned that there was no information about trips etc, just explanation on how to use the white goods! Does that person not nosey through drawers?! The drawer under the TV (which was not switched on once!) was full,of maps, tourist books, leaflets! However; we did go prepared and I meant to put a note in the visitors notes that a tip would be to download 101 things to do in Cyprus on an electronic reader it was a trusty piece of literature to have when out and about driving through the villages.

We used the BBQ 3 nights and ate out the rest and yes, the walk would have been quite lengthy but we would either eat out and have one drink and continue to relax by the pool with a G&T or a bottle of wine / beer or two, when we returned; or get a cab home and walk to get the car the next day.

we loved Pissouri as we love quiet village places and like to experience local life.

We are very pleased that you enjoyed the villa and it’s location. It’s good to hear of an alternative way to go to and from Pissouri village, Normally, we would drive up and one of us would not drink so that we could drive back to the villa, Otherwise we would walk up, it takes no longer than 20 minutes at a leisurely pace, and walk back down at the end of the evening. Your drive up - taxi back gives us another string to our bow. Thank you for your input, we very much appreciate your comments.

“Good villa”
Reviewed 4 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This is a good sized villa with lovely big rooms and a fabulous view from the pool area! The rooms were clean and the kitchen well equipped with all you need for a self catering holiday. The pool gazebo was a great place to sit when it got too hot.The furnishings were good and there was excellent storage..I have never been in a villa where I had more than enough coat hangers!I did have an issue with the bed being hard but if you look at my other reviews that is a common thing for me my husband thought it was OK. Richard, the owner tells me he plans to upgrade the mattresses this year. The air conditioning was a godsend at night and quickly cooled down the room and wasn't noisy. A previous reviewer mentioned the dogs barking which you can hear from time to time -Pissouri is a working village and there is some associated noise...but I think you have to be realistic about that.After a day or two we zoned the noise out and it is across the other side of the valley not right next door.The owner has just installed new WiFi and it is great and we managed to do all we wanted including watching stuff on the BBC iPlayer. We never switched on the TV so can't comment on that. You do need a car here - you could walk to the supermarket but it is uphill so if you have heavy bags perhaps not a good idea. The actual village is about a 5 minute drive and again uphill so we always drove although there is a taxi service that you could use if you didn't want to drive. We actually preferred to use the excellent gas BBQ ( my husband can recommend the pork chops from the supermarket!) and catered for ourselves. The Troodos Mountains are just an hour away by car less if you pick a more efficient car than we did! There are some lovely walking trails up there with spectacular views...lovely when the temperature is really high as it is usually 10 degrees cooler up there. We used the old road to tour about on (B6) rather than the motorway which was a bit boring to drive on. Pathos and Limassol are an easy drive away from the villa. Other places to visit nearby are Pissouri Beach, Kourion (Roman Ruins and Beach) and Aphrodite's Rock.We enjoyed our stay in this villa.

“Lovely relaxing Villa, great location”
Reviewed 18 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We have never been to Cyprus in March before, and found that we were pleasantly surprised. The weather was beautiful during our stay (day time temperatures around 22 C to 26 C and only one short rain shower) and we enjoyed your lovely villa so much we always hope to return. We very much appreciated being able to stay on after 12 noon on our day of departure - our return flight was not until nearly 10pm. We found lots to do in the local area, even though the sea was not warm enough to bathe. Sitting on the patio in the sunshine, we loved the feeling of privacy that you get by not being overlooked. Wonderful holiday, lovely villa, loved it all.

As you pointed out the weather in March is warm but not hot enough to swim in the sea, but you see Cyprus in bloom not at all how it looks in mid summer. It's good to hear that you loved your stay and we hope to see you again soon

“Nice but...............”
Reviewed 12 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Having read the previous reviews I am puzzled. The Villa is perfectly adequate with spectacular views and we had an enjoyable stay. However the Villa is not close to either the beach of the village and thankfully we hired a car for the entire stay. The walk to the centre of the village square is up a very steep road with few pavements and takes 40 minutes each way and is a slog in the hot weather. The nearest beach is at least 4km away. So absolutely essential to hire a car for your stay. The villa is well equipped but much unloved. It has no WIFI which is pretty essential these days and the village Wifi which you can purchase from the village supplier and recommended by the owner failed to work for us despite numerous
attempts. No point in having the TV as mostly Middle Eastern Stations with BBC and CNN world news channels thrown in. Would have been nice to have had a UK satellite provided especially during October when it gets dark at 6 and the evenings are getting cooler.
None of the beds are especially comfortable as we like our home comforts but probably ok for youngsters. Very little local information provided by the owner apart from copious amounts of instructions and technical advice regarding the white goods.
It was fortunate that we knew the island well and had a good idea of where to visit and where to eat. It would have been very difficult for newcomers to the island. Dave and Maria the local agents were not unfortunately the font of local knowledge and did not offer any suggestions.
We would not stay here again not only for the distance from the village but because of the constant noise from barking dogs which many of the locals keep in kennels. Across the valley there appeared to be a pack of "hunting dogs" kept in kennels that were a constant source of noise. Whilst this is not the fault of the owner but if you are sensitive to noise and you find captive animals upsetting this is not the place for you.

Thank you for your review of our villa. Whilst we are disappointed that you felt the villa was only adequate, we do appreciate your honest opinion. We will use your comments to improve the villa experience for future visitors. In the villa description we do state that it is 7 minutes drive away from the beach and that a car is recommended. Having looked into the problem of UK television channels, unfortunately due to a change in the satellites used by UK broadcasters in 2013, very few channels are available. We will be looking into providing a more reliable source of internet following your experience.
We hope you had an enjoyable and relaxing time in Cyprus and we thank you once again for your comments.

My family really enjoyed our stay at Callimore Villa. The villa itself is light and spacious and my family made the most of the pool as the weather we had was glorious. We made the walk to the local facilities and beach easily. I would happily recommend this villa to other families.
