Well maintained and the service was excellent!
The facilities at the villa were excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The pool and BBQ were used extensively and the large outdoor space was a real bonus.
The only minus point was the cats that were around the property.

Overall Id rate Villa Xenios Dias as a 4 star. We travelled with 4 small children and 4 adults and had a brilliant time. The rooms are huge and each has an en suite, the outside space is fantastic with both pools being big and the kids loved the small pool and spent pretty much every day there. The local area is very quiet just a couple of restaurants and an ice cream place. getting to them shouldve been really simple but they were repairing the road so you had to go across a building site (not great with kids). The local beach was almost empty and is just a strip next to the road, its also quite windy so we spent almost all our time at the villa. Theres plenty of fixed shade and loads of places to eat outside with no less than 5 tables dotted around the house, under trees or by the pool so you can always find somewhere to eat comfortably. There werent many flying insects which was great, no mosquitos and the occasional fly, but there are a few cats, we kept them at bay with some water squirters, Im not against cats but they can be pretty bold and will nick food from the table if its left unsupervised. The inside of the villa is really spacious, it was obviously build to a very high spec originally, Miele appliances, washing machine and tumble dryer in the utility room and plenty of cooking stuff and a big American fridge freezer but its showing its age a bit. The rooms are huge and all have en-suite, the water pressure isnt that great and you need to press the boost for hot water, theres also no plugs in the baths of you are trying to bathe young children. We mixed it up and showered inside and outside under the stars which was really special and my 3.5 yr old loved it :) They provide pool towels which is a bonus (the Agni website says they dont but they do). We travelled in early September and the weather was mid 30s every day. Remember they drive on the left and use English plugs so no need for adapters. The outside space is great for entertaining, we had another family over taking the total to 6 adults and 6 kids and there was plenty of room for everyone, we made pizzas in the oven (we ordered dough from the local bakery which is 5 mins drive away) and used the big BBQ spit. Sundowners at the outdoor bar were also cool, you can watch the sunset from the balconies too. Overall Id say we would go back but really its just for the house and the value and not for the local area as its quite rural and not hugely pretty. As an FYI theres a wedding venue down the road and on both Saturday nights we were there they had big fireworks displays and live music. For the adults no issue but with youngsters it could be an issue.
Argaka: Argaka is a quiet fruit farming community, located along a pretty coast, offering an ideal location for those who appreciate local authenticity and friendliness along with a beach holiday. There are several tavernas, bars and shops along the beach front. Above Argaka stretches the Troodos forest with its delightful walks and trails.
Kynousa: a small hamlet with tiny Church and local coffee-shop - which occasionally turns into an impromptu taverna offering the most amazing homemade Cypriot specialities! It is a very sleepy location and offers some very enjoyable walks into the Troodos foothills and around the Troodos lake.
Polis: is a pretty village with narrow streets and casual tavernas. The buildings are made of local, hand cut stone which has gently aged into a soft honey colour. It is the ideal place to meander and enjoy an afternoon drink or evening meal.
Pomos: is a quaint fishing village located at the foot of the Troodos hills, ideally situated for those who enjoy walking the coastline and mountain tracks. The small harbour of Pomos is the central focal point of local life with fishing boats laden with nets and the catch of the day eagerly offered by the waterside tavernas. A magnificent Byzantine church dominates the small village centre which also offers a choice of restaurants, a coffee shop, supermarket and bank with ATM machine.
Latchi: At Latchi you will find a laid back Cypriot village with a sandy beach and waterfront tavernas. Local life focuses on the fishing harbour. The local bars are low key and welcoming.
Akamas Peninsula: is a nature reserve, just after Latchi, which is protected by UNESCO. It was the playground of the Greek Goddess, Aphrodite. You can swim, cycle, walk and explore this very beautiful area of the island while enjoying the wild flowers and butterflies.
The Baths of Aphrodite: a mythical location where, according to legend, Aphrodite used to bathe, set within an olive grove with sweet smelling wild flowers. It is here that she met her beloved Adonis for the first time. Adonis was hunting in the Akamas forest when he stopped to quench his thirst. He was struck by the sight of the naked goddess bathing in the crystal waters. Aphrodite and Adonis were instantly bewitched by each other's extraordinary beauty. The location is now a tended garden and well worth a visit.
