With its many restaurants, central square, supermarkets and other amenities it really is the best of both worlds. Latchi Beach and Marina are just a further 5 minutes drive away where you can sample local fish, hire a boat, do watersports or just relax on the soft golden sand.Peristerona village (6km) is nearby With its mini-market selling fresh (natural) organic produce, coffee shops and friendly locals.

In Lysos (5km) you will find a renowned hotel (Paradisos Hills) with excellent restaurant, a further taverna, and a few other shops. Activities in Lysos include horse riding, clay pigeon shooting and many walks and mountain bike trails for those who like to be active.The area around the villa is always a very green due to the lush vegetation. The smell of the pine trees add to the atmosphere with views that are hard to beat anywhere in the world. It all looks particularly special in winter and spring months and is ideal for photographers, artists and those who like to walk and even hike. Other attractions in the area are the famous 'Museum of Arsinoe' showcasing a stunning collection of Byzantine artefacts.

(paid locally) Review submitted by Jon from London ''Fantastic villa! By far the best villa I’ve ever stayed at. Stunning location! The views around the villa I could never get tired of. Latchi boat hire was amazing and was one the highlights of the holiday. The old town restaurant and herb garden were the best restaurants that we went to and also Duomos was great. As usual your service was 1st class. Locally, Debbie couldn’t do enough for us and was so friendly'More

Review submitted by Nicholas from Cardiff (Submitted: 28/09/2019) ''The Lost castle was very well presented with everything you might need for your holiday available. Kitchen equipment was plentiful and the outside space was extensive. The location is the most peaceful we have visited in Cyprus. It was literally silent. The views were great. We only ate in Paphos on two occasions but would recommend Ficardo’s restaurant if you are willing to travel that far. The service provided by Lets Rent Online was, once again, first class. Debbie at the Lost Castle was very approachable. The service she provided was excellent. No issues I can think of. ''
