Ampeli Villa Guestbook

We are proud to have a high proportion of returning guests, and positive testimonials here about the villa, area, website, and our team. A big thanks to all our guests who've taken the time and trouble to send us comments during or after their stay. Naturally we bask in the compliments, but we also appreciate the suggestions, which are immensely helpful too.

We hope it's now quicker and easier via our new online feedback form - hence the addition of star-ratings (out of 5) in 2016.

The following are extracts from our feedback forms and emails:

  • We have had a lovely time and are sad to be leaving today!

    [These guests have already booked to return again next season.]

    — Mr & Mrs N, Cambridge (3rd visit), 23 Oct 2016
  • We've had a lovely week and the villa is wonderful. We all thought it was exceptionally well furnished and the kitchen contained everything we could possibly need.
    With so much of the world to see, we rarely visit the same location twice; however, for your fantastic villa we may have to make an exception!

    — Mr & Mrs W, Hants, 15 Oct 2016
  • Villa rating ***** Superb - It is clear that the owners have thought about everything and the Villa is well appointed with a high standard of finish.
    The Villa is in an ideal spot within an easy 2 min walk to the restaurants and shops / bars of the bay. With peaceful neighbours there is a calm about the place which is very pleasant. Its a perfect spot for a bit of R & R. Pissouri Bay is a small village with a cluster of 20 or so shops/ bars/ restaurants - although we didn't try them all ( not enough time ! ), we were impressed with the standard of service and food. Pissouri Village up the hill has a quaint feel to it and well worth a visit. Recommended trips that we discovered were the wine route up towards Troodos ( no need to go all the way - windy roads and breathtaking views) and a trip into Paphos ( head for Port area ).
    Fantastic Villa and Holiday. I hope we can return again soon.

    — Mr & Mrs W, Bury, 09 Oct 2016
  • [Villa] 5* Perfect for us. Everything you need. We loved the location, it was just what the"doctor ordered".
    [Favourites] We adored Agamemnon's cafe on the beach - we sat there for hours eating (food freshly made) & drinking. Have to say didn't have a bad meal in any of the bars/restaurants. Also loved the first place on the left when you walk from villa [Vineleaf Tavern] - went to a Vietnamese Night there, it was great!
    We had a lovely time.

    — The B family, Hemel Hempstead, 01 Oct 2016
  • Villa rating *****
    Fantastic villa. Ideal location, situated in a quiet street. Uninterrupted sea views and lovely secluded garden with beautiful pool. Everything you could ever need in the villa, lots of really thoughtful touches that others wouldn't even think of. Spotlessly clean, comfortable beds, a real home from home.
    There is a guest handbook provided with lots of information. It was a real bonus.
    Ideal position. Short walk from lots of bars restaurants and a couple of small supermarkets. Beautiful beach, lots of sunbeds and umbrellas along with jet skis, water skiing etc supplied by the lovely Mo. Pissouri village a couple of km up into the hills is beautiful very old worlde, traditional restaurants and bars.
    We loved the amphitheatre up in Pissouri village. Visited twice to see two tribute bands. Take a cool box and drinks. Don't forget some cushions, the concrete steps are very hard!!! Limassol is lovely with a new marina, but also lovely parts of the old town to explore.
    Thank you Nikki and Peter for giving us the privilege of staying in your wonderful villa. We will definitely be back.

    — Mr & Mrs A, Loughton, 21 Sep 2016
  • Villa rating *****
    All the equipment and extras you could ask for. We would strongly recommend to anyone!
    Website, booking process and communication excellent. Information folder very good, gems of information.
    Pissouri Bay has everything you need. Great selection of restaurants, bars etc.
    [Favs] Bay - Kastro (best moussaka ever), Saffron (Excellent Indian), Pissouri bay Cafe and Grape & Grain both excellent bars. Village - great Cyprus night at O'Vrakas, Hideaway great food and location, Leon Sparti pub.
    Thank you for a great stay!

    — Mr & Mrs M, Glasgow, 06 Sep 2016
  • The villa is in excellent order, well presented and maintained. Very clean inside and out. Pool is lovely and has been thoroughly enjoyed by the four of us, could not get the children out!
    The website and folder at the house provide all information needed and are very detailed.
    Booking process was very straight forward and easy. Nikki was prompt, helpful and very efficient, a pleasure to deal with.
    Returned to the village after 15 or so years, bit more developed but still a wonderful place. Great beach, restaurants, people and easy to get to from airport. Felt relaxed as soon as we arrived, didn't want to leave.
    Went to Artemis in the village a couple of times, good food and friendly staff. Columbia Beach Hotel for cocktails, pricey but worth it!
    Visited Kourion, well worth a trip, Paphos Archaeological Area was fascinating with some amazing mosaics. Limassol castle was interesting and we enjoyed exploring the old town area.
    We have thoroughly enjoyed our week here and cannot believe it has gone by so quickly. Already talking about booking again for next year!

    — Mr & Mrs P & family, Hampshire, 26 Aug 2016
  • Villa rating ****
    Well equipped villa, everything in place to cater for your needs.
    Information folder very helpful.
    Pissouri is a lovely place to stay, people very friendly and helpful with places to visit and best places to eat.
    Hillview, bunch of grapes, two friends, pizza venetto were our favourite places to eat. The grape and grain was a nice bar to visit. Great village square where you can eat and drink and mix with the locals.

    — Mr & Mrs E, Fife, 18 Aug 2016
  • Villa rating *****
    Villa: Everything you could wish for. All minor issues dealt with promptly and without fuss.*
    Information: Villa website is a mine of pertinent detail and is an excellent primary source of information.
    Locality: Pissouri village disappointing. But all amenities and large urban areas for shopping etc... within easy reach by car.
    Favourites: Cocktails at the Hotel bar. Kastro's restaurant. Kourion Archaeological site. Kourion beach. Farmers market produce at end of road.
    Cyprus is an interesting location for a holiday. If you're British it would appear to be very much a home from home.
    Our hosts couldn't have been more helpful, and so well organised, and as previous comments indicate, are an absolute pleasure to deal with.
    We enjoyed ourselves very much.

    — Mr & Mrs M & daughters, Ireland, 26 Jul 2016
  • Villa rating *****
    Was everything we remembered from our visit last year.
    The villa is in a lovely quiet location but within easier walking distance from restaurants and local shops.
    The villa is lovely and clean and contains everything you could possibly need / want or think of.
    The pool area / garden is especially nice and perfect for lazy days and very tranquil at night with all the lights on when you return from eating out and want to chill before retiring.
    G did a diving course with Pissouri Bay Divers - they were fab - very friendly and incredibly professional. So much so we are returning in October for him to continue to the next level.
    For me the holiday was a crash and chill so I only ventured out to wander along the beach eat and visit the local shops in the Bay for supplies. I did however happen upon Bay Jewellery, Gemma is very talented and her jewellery is lovely, she is also very keen to make any pieces bespoke.
    Perfectly situated not too far from the airport and within easy reach of many places. Although you do need a car if you want to venture out of the Bay.
    Kastros and Artemis remained our favourites from last year. With Yialos being added this year - the fish was amazing.
    Thanks for a perfect week.

    — Mr & Mrs N, Cambridge (2nd visit), 20 Jul 2016
  • Villa rating *****
    When you arrive you are hit by the location, tranquility, space, layout and quality / cleanliness of the fixtures, fittings and furnishings. With views of the sea, privacy from the neighbouring villas and proximity to tavernas and shops it exceeded all of our expectations.
    The outside space is fabulous and the gas bbq is great for those outdoor meals we had.
    From Villa Ampeli you can see the sea and hear the waves some mornings as you are only a short walk away. The nearest taverna (The Vine Leaf) is all but 3 minutes walk away. Pissouri Bay is quiet with a surprising number of tavernas, a couple of bars, an Indian restaurant and a take away pizza restaurant. We particularly enjoyed the Vineleaf Tavern, Yialos and Agamemnon beach bar. We used Chris' watersports a couple of times - they dropped us off then collected us from the local Kyrenia Beach where we stopped for a relaxing lunchtime meal. Getting on and off the boat kept us laughing throughout the holiday.
    We would definitely stay at (again) and recommend to others Villa Ampeli.

    — Mr & Mrs C & friends, Wigan, 29 Jun 2016
  • The villa was as perfect as always. Villa rating *****
    Pool immaculate and very well maintained.
    Pissouri Bay great for casual dining and a few drinks.
    Kastro our favourite restaurant in the Bay area. Seems to be growing in popularity as a number of nights the restaurant was completely full. Booking recommended.
    Perfect break as in previous years.

    — Mr & Mrs H, London (3rd visit), 20 Jun 2016
  • Villa: perfect, everything you'd need. Very clean. Home from home. Pool is perfect too.
    Pissouri: peaceful and quiet. Some lovely restaurants.
    Activity recommendation: Atlantis Boat Cruise - 2 h - saw lots of turtles from large portholes below deck. George v helpful. Swam from boat - great trip out.

    — Mr & Mrs G & family, Bucks, 29 Aug 2015
  • Having a great time - doing lots of activities at Chris' Watersports. Just got back from the ruins at Kourion - thought that was spectacular.
    Your villa is perfect for us and the location is fantastic. There are so many lovely restaurants within walking distance of the villa and all of a very good standard. For a special treat it is also definitely worth a visit to Hillview up in the Village for exceptional food and service and of course a fabulous view.
    We were very sad to leave - we enjoyed our holiday immensely. A return visit is definitely on the cards sometime in the future!

    — Mr & Mrs S & family, Beds, 20 Aug 2015
  • Villa stunning. Much nicer than even the website showed! Everything we could need or want. Perfect.
    All you needed on your doorstep. Surprised at how lovely and quiet the bay is. Loved the village square.
    Thank you very much for a truly wonderful holiday. :-)

    — Mr & Mrs H & family, Cambridge, 30 Jul 2015
  • Ampeli Villa is beautiful, so clean, so organised and so homely. I'm positive this has been the most relaxing and fun holiday of my life.
    Janne [manager], the gardeners and pool guy are so helpful and friendly. We couldn't have dreamed of a better holiday.
    Pissouri Bay is beautiful, lovely friendly people, great bars and restaurants and shops have all you need. We hired a car from a local business which came highly recommended. Great value and such an easy place to drive around.
    We will definitely be returning.

    — Miss N & friends, Barrow in Furness, 03 May 2015
  • Think I may have overchilled!
    We had a great holiday and the villa did not disappoint, it's lovely.
    I enjoyed revisiting Pissouri and was surprised to be remembered by people...
    Car hire from Tarantos worked out fine and very reasonable.
    The hints and tips for eating out were useful Limanaki, Bunch of Grapes both fab. I hope we can return again soon.

    — Ms H, Mr O, Wigan, 29 Oct 2014
  • Really enjoyed the villa, loved the location and thought that you are very thoughtful in all the touches and equipment in the villa.

    — Ms F & Mr M, Bucks, 13 Oct 2014
  • We had another wonderful holiday staying at Ampeli Villa, it's a real pleasure to stay there! Your villa is so beautiful and incredibly well equipped. As usual I think we kept the Limanaki in business most nights! Hope to return to the villa soon!

    — Mr & Mrs W, Milton Keynes (3rd visit), 15 Sep 2014
  • Thank you we had a wonderful time, the villa was exactly how you described and perfect for our type of holiday. The villa is excellently equipped and everything was so easy and relaxing so we thank you for that. The children loved all the "little extras" and it helped to keep them entertained, very useful!

    — Mrs T, E Yorks, 21 Aug 2014
  • We had such a nice holiday! Your home is lovely! Everything was as we hoped, if not better. The Bay and Mo [at Chris Watersports] were perfect! She was fab. So lovely. The kids experienced stuff they have never had chance to and it was a perfect balance between relaxing and adrenaline.
    Thank you very much for all your touches. We will highly recommend you to our friends.
    Hope to come back again.

    — The H Family, Cambridge, 31 Jul 2014
  • [The villa] Wonderful! Very well equipped, clean and comfortable. You've really thought about this from the residents' viewpoint, so many clever and thoughtful touches. Pool lovely, just the right temp. WiFi a bit inconsistent*, but what a collection of CDs and DVDs! The girls loved these for the car, and chilling out late evening respectively.

    *[ Since upgraded from hotspot to dedicated villa Internet, providing TV and secure WiFi with a good signal.]

    — Dr T & daughters, Macclesfield, 05 Jul 2014
  • We had a great time, the villa was perfect for us and I think you have thought of everything. The villa handbooks were also excellent and easy to follow, all we had to do was relax and enjoy it. The BBQ was a joy to use as well, compared to our charcoal one at home, I think it convinced us to buy something similar for home. Really clean too so we would definitely stay there again.

    — Mr & Mrs P, Bath, 16 Oct 2013
  • The villa is as advertised and exceptionally clean. There was everything in the villa that you could possibly need, - it was like a home from home. 5 star villa. Pissouri is beautiful - never staying in Larnaca, Lemesos, Paphos or Ayia Napa again! Lovely villa - would recommend it to all our friends and family.

    — Mr & Mrs L, London, 24 Aug 2013
  • Thanks for the stay in the villa, it was superb. Definitely one of the best villas we have stayed in. The garden is very nice and the pool is lovely.
    Very well set out with the all the information, CDs etc.
    Thanks again, next time we are in Cyprus we'll be sure to see if the villa is available again.

    — Mr & Mrs F, Stockton-on-Tees, 08 Aug 2013
  • The villa is in tip-top condition and the luxury of one’s own pool, sun beds and a large shade, not to mention so many fine places to eat and drink by the sea within a couple of minutes’ walk, make for a dream holiday. The weather has been outstanding and we have been lazy.

    — Mr & Mrs G, Cheltenham (2nd visit), 29 Jun 2013
  • We found the villa very well equipped including the amount of local information available.
    The local area suited us very well as we hired a car for our days out and for the days in we enjoyed the bay and the village. One restaurant in the bay was particularly good – Limanaki. Really enjoyed the place [in the village] with the amazing views.
    We chartered a yacht while we were there and have left the details at the villa in case anyone else would like to do the same.
    We used your neighbours' jet skis and had great fun and also went wine tasting.

    — Mr & Mrs L, Nottingham, 17 Jun 2013
  • The villa was really clean and well-stocked - a real home from home! Pissouri itself is quiet and unspoilt but with enough amenities to keep us and our two small children adequately supplied. A really lovely, relaxing visit. Hope to visit again soon.

    — Mr & Mrs W, Wilts, 14 May 2013
  • Just wanted to drop you a line to say how much we enjoyed our second stay at Pissouri Bay last week. The villa is so well equipped – you really have thought of everything to make anybody’s stay there a comfortable and memorable one. Looking forward to coming again next year.

    — Mr P, Surrey (2nd visit), 09 Oct 2012
  • The villa was fabulous and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit, it was exceptionally well presented, everything went exactly as planned, thank you.

    [This guest has kindly offered to supply first-hand comments via email if that would be helpful.]

    — Mr H, Bristol, 16 Sep 2012
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Ampeli Villa. We had a wonderful time exploring the local area and just relaxing and enjoying the pool and garden.
    The villa was fantastically equipped and was a real home from home! Pissouri Bay was beautiful and we have come home with some lovely memories!
    I would highly recommend it to anyone and hope that we can return.

    — Mr & Mrs M, Bucks, 28 Aug 2012
  • Lived up to expectations and more!! Great location, facilities, all made for a wonderful holiday.

    — Mr & Mrs McR, Airdrie, 25 Jul 2012
  • A delight and an oasis of calm in a beautiful location. The facilities were exactly as described and you had thought of everything to make your guests’ stay easy and comfortable. The pool is great and we spent a lot of time enjoying your garden, the sun beds and the shade. Everything was in excellent condition.

    — Mr & Mrs G, Cheltenham, 30 Jun 2012
  • Just a note to say how delighted we were to have our holiday at your wonderful villa. We were really impressed by how easy you have made it for people not to worry about the small things, as everything you need is available to you. Would love to return again.

    — Mr & Mrs R, East Lothian, 05 Sep 2011
  • We had a wonderful holiday and all was well with the villa. Looking forward to the next visit!

    — Mr & Mrs H, Surrey (2nd visit), 15 Aug 2011
  • Lovely as usual. Love the new cafetiere and solar lights above table. We had a wonderful time yet again.

    — Mrs P & Mr H, Wilts (4th visit), 01 Jul 2011
  • What a joy. Everything has been thought of. Pool is lovely as is the villa. A feeling that you care about your customers (which am sure you do)! Excellent restaurants, water sports and really friendly people. Many thanks - it's been an absolute pleasure.

    — Ms B & Mr W-D, Stansted, 13 Jun 2011
  • One of the best presented villas we have ever stayed in. Just perfect for our needs. Spotlessly clean and stylish interior a real home from home. We felt very comfortable there. So well equipped it had everything anyone could ever want - even a pair of reading glasses!! We will definitely go back again next year.

    — Mr and Mrs F, Cheshire, 19 Sep 2010
  • We arrived back last night after another wonderful holiday in Pissouri. Everything was as good as ever with the villa. The weather was as great ~ we think even hotter this year although the first few days were a bit overcast and humid with even some light sea mist in the mornings but after about 5 days this cleared up and became normal Cyprus weather hot and windy and wonderful.

    — Mr and Mrs C, Hants (5th visit), 25 Aug 2010
  • Just a quick email to say thank you for the use of the villa which we really enjoyed again this year.
    We tried the Kyrenia beach taverna which was excellent but found out that it is cash/cheque only! The owner was very kind and let us eat one day and pay the next - they are just so laid back in Cyprus, if only the UK was as kind!
    We had a lovely stay in your villa again.

    — Mr and Mrs W, Milton Keynes (2nd visit), 08 Jul 2010
  • Yet again we had a wonderful time, its just a shame to get home!! My sister didnt want to leave. Once again thanks, hopefully be in touch for next year's holiday.

    — Mrs P and Mr H, Middx (3rd visit), 21 Jun 2010
  • We were really impressed with the villa and its location. The quality and the amount of information that was provided in the guide book was clear and informative. We would definitely recommend the villa to friends and family.

    — Mr M and friends, London, 24 May 2010
  • We found Ampeli Villa to be very well equipped and clearly somewhere that you go yourselves as the extras included made all the difference. The villa was very comfortable and spacious and we liked the style and decor. All in all a good break in a lovely villa.

    — Mr and Mrs W, Norfolk, 10 Oct 2009
  • Fantastic! Clean, modern, air con, everything you could need. Impressed with the information booklet that was left. Beautiful lovely sized pool. Superb mother and daughter week away relaxing by the pool. Can't wait to come again next year!

    — Mrs B and Mrs W, Herts, 28 Sep 2009
  • So much more than we could ever have imagined and the pool was a dream - this is the best equipped villa we have stayed in. This best holiday ever!

    — Mr and Mrs H, Surrey, 30 Aug 2009
  • Stunning! Just like being at home but with the advantage of a pool! Very well equipped, clean and organised. An extremely enjoyable holiday!

    — Mr and Mrs W, Milton Keynes, 07 Jul 2009
  • The villa is lovely - very clean, everything you need, gorgeous view around and beyond the pool. The living area and interior v cosy, stylish, home from home, enjoyed staying here.

    — Mr and Mrs C, Cheshire, 17 May 2009
  • Had a wonderful time yet again. My Mum, Dad and Daniel really enjoyed their stay too. My Dad was amazed at all the little extras you supply. A perfect holiday. We have eaten in virtually all the restaurants now. Panda Chinese is absolutely wonderful, wish we could have fitted in a second visit.

    — Mrs P and Mr H, Middx (2nd visit), 29 Apr 2009
  • Gorgeous house with brilliant kitchen stuff. Very lovely interior of all chambers and we really liked the pool.

    — Mr M and friends, Germany, 23 Mar 2009
  • My family of 6: 3 grandchildren, our daughter, my hubby and I have just returned today from a holiday in Ampeli Villa in Pissouri. I would like to say that we have never stayed in a villa that was as so complete as yours, we could not fault it at all. We had such a great time and the children 8yrs and 10yrs were so delighted with all of the little touches for them (the games). It was perfect, thank you and we would certainly look again to booking it and recommending it.

    — Mr and Mrs D, UK, 28 Sep 2008
  • Nice pool, stylish interior, feels very private. We had a wonderful honeymoon here. Amazingly comprehensive information pack. Answered all our questions and more. V useful restaurant recommendations. Bay is right on doorstep, friendly, nice beach few minutes walk. Got taxi into Village, hold on tight if Chris is driving! Village very pretty winding streets, holiday atmosphere.

    — Mr and Mrs R, Bucks, 05 Sep 2008
  • A lovely clean and impressive villa, ideally located with everything needed for a perfect holiday. All the little extras included are wonderful. Its position giving the privacy wanted for a villa was ideal. Located in a lovely area of Cyprus with friendly people and lovely restaurants. Would definitely like to revisit.

    — Mrs P and Mr H, Middx, 14 Jun 2008
  • Just returned to the UK after 11 days in Cyprus staying at your wonderful villa. As many people have said the extras provided add value to the experience of staying on the Vineland development. Everything about the property and holiday was excellent; thank you. I can certainly see us booking in 2009 and will be in contact.

    — Mr H and Ms C, Norfolk, 28 May 2008

    — Mr and Mrs B, Herts, 05 May 2008
  • We all had a fabulous week in your beautiful villa. We gave it a "Wow" factor on walking in. The weather, villa, swimming pool and the people in the village were all great. You have thought of everything that people need on holiday and much more. It was a wonderful relaxing week for all of us and we would highly recommend it to anybody.

    — The Golden Girls, UK, 25 Apr 2008
  • Just to say we have a really enjoyable holiday. Pissouri Bay was beautiful and your villa was absolutely gorgeous! The villa was so nice that 4 out of 7 nights we stayed in and ate. We will definitely return at some point. Would highly recommend it to friends and family.

    — Mr and Mrs H, Berks, 18 Apr 2008
  • Delighted with the villa. Very clean, all facilities excellent, especially the pool. Having never stayed in a villa before, will definitely come back. Welcome pack great. Louise very helpful. Bedrooms great, plenty of room. We did not want to leave.

    — Mr and Mrs D, Herts, 19 Oct 2007
  • Spotless on arrival. Many thanks for "welcome pack". Extras much appreciated. Our first villa holiday and very successful. Pool ideal. Breakfasts on terrace a joy. Will certainly return.

    — Dr and Mrs FS, Ragdale, Leics, 30 Sep 2007
  • So easy to book. Beautiful villa, clean and well appointed. Information booklet actually informative! Great for all age groups to enjoy. Pissouri Bay is a lovely area and very accessible to other parts of Cyprus. We had a fabulous holiday, thank you.

    — Mr and Mrs P, Essex, 23 Sep 2007
  • Incredibly well equipped with quality all round. A stone's throw away from the bizz of the beach area with ample choice of eateries etc, but also all you would want for a quiet relaxing holiday, quite simply a home from home. Returning hopefully next year for our fifth consecutive year to Pissouri and we will find it difficult to beat this great villa.

    — Mr and Mrs C, Fife, 17 Sep 2007
  • The villa is superb, everything you need for a restful holiday. Very clean and equipped very well.
