One of the most stunning places I have stayed in Cyprus (and im a Cypriot) with the breathtaking views of the Akamas peninsula! An absolutely wonderful villa with so many quaint and peaceful areas within to really unwind and relax! A hidden gem!


Great Holiday Experience
Just returned from a wonderful weeks stay at Villa Asteri. The villa was exactly as described peaceful and relaxing set on top of a hill overlooking the bay of Chrysochou. The views are lovely with the villa looking directly onto some wonderful sunsets. As a family of 6 the space inside and outside the villa is important, with 5 bedrooms this was never an issue. The bedrooms, living area and kitchen area had plenty of room.Outside there is plenty of space to move around with a heated pool and a number of lovely seating areas, all of which have tremendous views of the valley below. There is also a bbq area and a bar. There are some good restaurants in nearby Polis our favourite was the Polis Herb Garden the town also has a large supermarket that stocks almost everthing including some Sainsbury's goods. Steni is a picturesque village with a really good restaurant called the Watermill which is exceptional value for money. The villa is one of the best we have stayed in across the Mediterranean and we will be booking again for next year. Cant wait.

We are two families with young children on our first AirBnB experience, and we enjoyed it immensly! The villa was spacious, the kitchen well equipped , each room with an en suite bathroom and the common areas were very comfortable. But the outsides! The villa is located on the mountainside, well secluded, so there's nothing to block the gorgeous view all the way to the Mediterranean Sea. It has a nice big pool with many places to relax and sunbathe, an outdoors dining are right next to a great barbecue station and a cute little bar area. Carrie was a very attentive host and her local recommendations were rock solid.


Villa Asteri, Paphos, Cyprus, Cyprus
What a stunning location, beautiful villa, photos do not do it justice, had a few slight issues but all sorted very quickly, would highly recommend

Emma T, 

Had a fantastic week in this Villa (2nd holiday this year) - have done Villas in Cyprus for a good few years now and this is one of the best - everything is accurate as stated on the Website and whilst extremely private is located close to Polis where you can get everything you need and socialise - would recommend without hesitation and would certainly return if available in the future.

Impressive villa with everything needed for a comfortable stay. The outside area is fabulous with lovely views. We wanted a peaceful, relaxing week away and the location is perfect for that. The villa is not overlooked at all so it's very private. 10 minutes drive to the nearest town (Polis) where there is a supermarket and plenty places to eat. Within 2-3 minutes drive from the villa is the Water Mill cafe which is good for snacks and drinks and to pass the time of day. The only thing that could be improved is the pool - the bottom of the pool needs to be resurfaced, but despite that we still thoroughly enjoyed our time at Asteri and would highly recommend it. We would book this villa again if we come back to Cyprus.
