More than a little piece of heaven

7th June 2007 Print
More than a little piece of heaven A round of golf and a trip to the spa – it’s been quite an exhausting day! There can only be one way to ‘re-cooperate’ - a few friends round, watching the sun go down on another ‘balmy’ day in Cyprus. With a glass of ‘bubbly’ in hand, lounging around the 18m pool, the decisions start to nag – dinner ‘al fresco’ by the bar-b-q or maybe the dining room is more appropriate on this occasion. And of course, which movie to watch in the basement entertainment room?

‘Tongue in cheek’ this may sound, but the size and specification of this five-bed villa and the accompanying facilities at Aphrodite Hills mean that this property is about as unstressed and close to heaven as one can find.

Built in one of the most highly sought after locations within the multi-award winning, low density development, it is no co-incidence that this villa has come to epitomise what the development represents. Just as Aphrodite – the goddess of love and beauty - roamed the western coast of Cyprus, making it both her home and playground, so too can the proud owner of this magnificent property, set as it is within 234 hectares of protected forestry and olive & carob groves, with a magnificent view of the Med and where the leisure facilities are simply outstanding.

The villa, which resides on a total plot area of 3,300 sq.m, incorporates a multi-tiered and fully landscaped garden, a private drive that is controlled through electric gates and parking facilities both in the double sized detached garage and on the driveway.

The property offers spectacular panoramic views of the international standard Cabell Robinson golf course, whilst laying adjacent to the no: 16 hole. In addition, the terrace and two first floor verandas provide vistas of the beautiful countryside and the shimmering Med.

The three-storey building has been specifically designed by Cybarco Plc – master-planners of the entire development – to provide the ultimate in luxurious living. The ground floor, with its high quality, fully equipped kitchen, living and dining area and separate family room can be opened to provide an extensive entertaining space.

Bedrooms, with en-suite bathrooms are to be found on all three floors, with verandas off the master and second bedroom. The master is undeniably breathtaking with its vaulted, double height wooden ceiling.

No stone has been left unturned, with the villa having been finished to the highest standard. From the marble flooring to the specially designed bathrooms, the centralised sound system throughout and the quality kitchen appliances, the thought process has been complete.

Just as one can shut the door and delight in one’s own home, so too can one maximise on the Aphrodite Hills experience, which has been designed with ‘genuine living’ in mind. The afore-mentioned golf course is the most challenging of its kind on the island, whilst a premier golf academy, practice range and the fully equipped Pro Shop provide all that the year round golf enthusiast could require.

Top –to-toe pampering is available at The Retreat – the development’s luxury spa facility, where tranquil surroundings, superb facilities and an extended range of treatments combine to provide the ultimate mind / body experience.
For the more energetic, a sophisticated health centre incorporates a fully equipped gym with personal trainers, heated swimming pool and outdoor covered whirlpool. The tennis centre currently offers a range of floodlit hard and clay courts as well as a stadium show court. When fully completed, there will be 12 multi-surface courts with outstanding support facilities, including a central Tennis Pavilion.
Following the charm of all Cypriot communities, Aphrodite Hills has its own ‘village square’, forming the heart of the resort, and providing extensive shopping and entertainment as well as all the general facilities one needs for day-to-day living. Numerous restaurants and bars exist in the village, whilst fine dining is available at four gourmet restaurants in the Intercontinental Hotel.

Perched high above the coastal road and having aptly assumed the name of the goddess of beauty, Aphrodite Hills and this particular villa, will offer its owners ‘more than a little touch of heaven’ at an extremely earthly price.

Price: CY£1.5m
