Beautiful Villa in a lovely town.
Great location for site seeing. Would strongly recommend here to everyone and will try and book again soon. Thank you Rachel for being a great host. Mick and family
Lovely villa with an excellent welcome pack. It is great to be part of a village where you can walk to numerous tavernas, a lovely shop and the village bar and gin wonderland. That's all providing you can get past the Farm Yard restaurant which itself is great. Thanks to Rachel for being a great host and her team who water the plants and clean who are lovely folk. If you want village life then this villa is highly recommended.
Amazing week away.
From the start of booking, to our final day at the villa, we couldn't have asked for a smoother and more enjoyable process. We had a fantastic week, the villa was perfect and even better than shown in the pictures. Kathikas is a stunning little village, the gin bar was one of our favourites. And even though we only managed one visit, the food at the Farmyard was amazing, with great value for money - the portions are huge (especially the ribs), and the staff were so friendly and helpful. All in all, a great week, and somewhere we would love to return to in the future.
Very nice property
really nice property fantastic views .
Wonderful spacious great location everything we needed
We are just home after 1 week in this lovely villa. Stayed with husband and 2 children ages 11 & 12. Although villa located behind farmhouse restaurant we still felt very quiet & private. Views amazing pool fabulous and big. The welcome pack provided was incredible more than we expected. Rachel and Savvas were always available if we wanted anything but also not intrusive at all. We did require aircon at small extra cost at night to sleep well. Rachel replied quickly to my many questions before we flew out and put my mind at rest about lots of things. Directions to villa great took approx 40 mins from airport. The villa had lots of extras like soap and toilet paper kitchen towel etc that was an added bonus. The small quaint village was a few mins walk away which was so pretty with about 6 taverns and eateries, and a good shop. This was out first visit to cyprus and we loved it Kathikas is in a cooler location which was great for us. The villa is located in great spot to explore which we certainly did. We had a 4 x4 so went off road quite a bit and saw some great sites. locals were so friendly and Andreas in village recommened local waterfall in Kritou Terra to visit which was our favourite day. Best food we had was definitely at farmhouse just a shame only managed to get the once. Valentina served us here and at cafe bar in village great for the kids, she was so friendly and professional. Would love to return. Thankyou Rachel & Savvas a wonderful holiday xx
The property is situated just 600m (few mins walk) from the village centre which offers a great selection of restaurants and tavernas to suit all tastes, A Gin bar, with a wide selection of drinks available, showing Live Sports and a small shop for groceries. Kathikas is famous for its vineyards, the village is surrounded by vines and is renowned for the quality of its grapes. Many of the vines have been in the same family for generations. We have 2 very famous wineries, who open their doors to visitors, so you can enjoy the winemakers craft. The village is also home to a donkey sanctuary, a tourist information centre and has 2 Traditional Churches .
Situated around the outskirts of the village are several trails for sightseeing and Walking.
Kathikas has a good climate in summer with very little humidity. If you’re a bit of an amateur anthropologist, then Kathikas is an ideal location in which to observe the traditional Cypriot way of life and to live it yourself. Kathikas’s central location makes it an ideal base from which to explore such areas as Polis and Latchi, the Baths of Aphrodite, the Adonis Baths, the Akamas Peninsula, the turtle hatchery at Lara Bay, to mention but a few. Also the busy tourist resort of Coral Bay is 10-15 minutes drive.
