Name & Address

Date of visit

Once again we have spent a most enjoyable week at Kambos. This holiday we brought our son David and his wife Yvonne who hail from Sleaford in Lincolnshire. They thought they had won the Lottery! Many thanks again to Winn and Roger, also Mary and Jim! Colin and Margaret Hall, Dalbeattie, Scotland 3-10 October 2004
We have really enjoyed our second visit to Villa Kambos. The location is wonderful and the patio is a great place to enjoy an evening aperitif. The sunsets have been wonderful! We have been fascinated by the variety of bird life around the villa and have got particularly attached to a Little Owl, which we see most evenings along the road. Anne Gamble + Neville Taylor, Manchester 12-19 September 2004
We had a wonderful stay at Kambos. The house is fully equipped with all you could wish for. We will be back & recommend to family & friends in the US and UK. Lisa & Thomas Tsoopelis

This is our third time [in Kambos] and need I say any more in praise of Kambos or Pissouri than is already written in this visitors' book. We are so impressed we have booked to come back next year. Ann & Dave Dudley

19 October to 16 November 2003
This is our third time and we love it. Everyone very friendly; weather has been great; all eating places are great but the Olympus is out of this world - top class and so cheap: meals from 4.25 each.

Will be coming back again in a few years' time.

The villa has everything we expected and more. The weather has been wonderful. The sea at Ladies Mile beach was so warm it was like getting into a warm bath: sea temp was about 35°C. We ate at all the tavernas in the village and can't think of a bad thing to say about any of them. Cyprus Night on Wednesday is a must! Stay till the end and watch the villagers let their hair down.

The pool was really wonderful but the children are really miserable now as they have to go home.

We have had a wonderful week at Kambos Villa - and would love to return! Everything was thought of even to the most welcome starter supplies! The villa is spotless and so well looked after. Roz & Alasdair Horne

My daughter, Victoria, having spent her third holiday at Kambos - and now at a loss for words to express delight in this villa, the valley below and the island generally - has ordered me to scribble a few remarks. She, her husband Gordon and myself have just spent seventeen days enjoying ourselves and touring this magic island and marvelling in its history and antiquities and the hospitality of its people - and regretting the senseless division of its inhabitants.

Weather has been a little mixed - not as warm, sometimes, as we had hoped, but this villa is so-o-o comfortable. They will certainly be back again and again - and so will I (if I’m still around!).

We wish all who follow us happy holidays here - you’ll find it very easy.

We have thoroughly enjoyed our week’s holiday together at Kambos. The villa has a beautiful view to the sea and is ideally situated for a quiet and restful holiday. Although our weather was changeable and entertaining we were still able to go sightseeing each day. We certainly intend to return in the near future.

Many thanks to Jim and Mary. Great to see you both again! Thank you Pat for cleaning the pool but at 58° - much too cold to test!

25 January to 1 February 2003
Well, we threatened to return, and return we did! We have spent a most idyllic three weeks barbecuing, touring the island’s mountain villages, and generally relaxing by the pool well into the evening. We did have 2 storms and 2 evenings/early mornings of rain, but we never couldn’t do what we planned because of the weather. For several days, Radio Limassol said it was 26-27°C.

Our arriving flight was a late evening affair at Paphos, so the various “goodies” which had been left for us by Jimmy and Mary went down very well.

With the Christmas tree and decorations being put up in the village and the huge tree outside Orphanides at Limassol it must be time to go and think about Christmas in England.

Thank you to Roger and Winn for letting us borrow your beautiful home in the sun again - roll on 13 weeks today when we return!

Goodbye Villa Kambos. We have enjoyed our stay but a week simply hasn’t been enough. As has been said many times before, the villa and its surroundings are wonderful. The weather has been superb and we have wanted for nothing (except maybe a pair of binoculars - we must remember to bring some with us next time!)

Many thanks to Jim and Mary - the welcome pack was very gratefully received and thank you Pat for keeping the pool so clean.

We all braved the pool on a daily basis - it’s not that bad once you’re in, honest!

Sarah & Richard Townshend and family
20-28 October 2002
Thank you for having us yet again, Kambos - we shall return if you are available. This was our third visit to Pissouri, and we still have not seen all we wish to see of Cyprus. The weather was superb, and the people delightful as usual. The house was lovely to stay in, and the pool and patio well used. Thanks to all concerned in making our stay so pleasant. Lesley & Keith Ranger

This was our first visit to Cyprus and we have had a wonderful week! The village of Pissouri was very pretty and seemed quite unspoilt and traditional. The highlight, however, has been Villa Kambos and the pool. We spent most of our week lazing by the pool, swimming, browning, eating and enjoying the local view.

The BBQ has also been great and we’ve had some lovely poolside meals. The local tavernas have also been a big part of our holiday, our favourite being the Hideaway.

The weather has been superb these past few days and we only had one cloudy day during the week and some windy days earlier on.

All in all the Villa Kambos lived up to all of our expectations and we’ve had a fantastic Cyprus holiday.

29 September to 6 October 2002
Marvellous villa, superb location. Weather has been hot; at times windy - but no sand in the pool!

Nice eateries in Pissouri village - No.1 being the Hideaway. Cyprus night on a Wednesday is very enjoyable.

19 August to 1 September 2002
We have all thoroughly enjoyed our two weeks in Kambos, and as a result of our stay in Pissouri are now seriously considering buying a place of our own here!

Pat and Elaine, who clean the pool and garden, are a lovely couple, as are Jimmy and Mary who look after the house. They are all very happy to give all sorts of interesting information about the area, and helpful tips.

Our second visit to Kambos and again we loved it. This year we celebrated 35 years of marriage and Cyprus, Pissouri and Kambos were the ideal place to come.

The weather has been very hot but as always in Pissouri the breeze has been most refreshing.

We will be back, hopefully next year.

We're the third pair of honeymooners at Kambos, and it was a wonderful place to unwind. Being able to make freshly squeezed orange juice with the electric juicer was wonderful - as Fawlty Towers fans know, freshly squeezed means out of an orange, not out of a bottle!

We thoroughly recommend jetskiing and parascending, which we both tried for the first time - great fun!!

Weather has been fantastic, and villa and pool perfect. We look forward to our next visit.

Stephen and Lucy Dawson
10 to 22 June 2002
Had a lovely two weeks. Weather, food and people all great. Everything in this villa that you could possibly need.

Cyprus night is in the village on a Wednesday. It's really worthwhile going.

After two wonderful weeks in this truly beautiful villa, Kambos, in the charming village of Pissouri, the day has come for our return home.

Everything about our time here has been a delight, from the weather to the food, to the sightseeing. We have become extremely fit as we prefer to walk to the village each evening and back and have only hired a car for a couple of days to explore.

The food is plentiful and cheap. Highly recommended comes The Hideaway and The Moonlight Tavern; good, inexpensive food with good Cypriot atmosphere. Excellent food in The Hill View, but no atmosphere as used only by English folk.

[Now rebooked for May 2003.]

Liz McAleer 12 to 26 May 2002
The long drive from Larnaca airport was quickly forgotten when we arrived to discover a spotlessly clean, spacious villa with a lovely pool and spectacular view. After a good night’s sleep it became apparent that the villa had everything we would need on holiday (including egg cups).

The weather wasn’t as good as we’d hoped for in the first week, and as a result we decided to go sight seeing and covered over 1000km on our travels!

We all agree that Nicosia is well worth a visit, but it’s a long drive so get up early! The village was quite quiet as it is early in the season.

The weather improved during the second week but it was still too cold to use the pool! We were however able to relax by the pool once the wind dropped.

Many thanks to the owners for letting us stay in their beautiful villa and to Jim and Mary for the welcome package and help with the central heating.

An excellent location and a very nice villa. The villa is a perfect place for a really good holiday - we were impressed by the presentation and standard of the facilities. Jimmy and Mary Durup were really hospitable and helpful.

We can recommend the Olympus Palace - the food is good and if you talk to him nicely the waiter will give you free coffee and brandy! The Columbia Beach Hotel in Pissouri Beach has good coffee also.

If you are interested in the political aspects of the island’s recent history, I suggest reading the novel written by the villa’s owner, called Emerald Aphrodite.

Wonderful holiday - very nice villa, very clean. Jim and Sue Simpson 13 to 20 March 2002
Two weeks of paradise. What a setting; such luxury; and after two days of storms we’ve had the most wonderful time on the island. On previous visits, the easy way of a package tour has always been our approach - never again. The freedom of not being herded like cattle at the airport, queuing for the night coach, queuing for your room key - need I go on?? The smooth transfer at Paphos from plane to car (thanks to Petsas and Roger), and then the delights of the villa - just wish the pool had been a little warmer, but then who in their right mind would go swimming in England outside in February?!

The welcome pack of wine, bread, eggs etc. (please note the order of importance!) was lovely to receive - thank you.

It has been my father’s first visit to the island - impressed is not the word; ecstatic might be nearer the mark, and at 81 this month I’m sure this has given him a new lease of life.

Vicky and Gordon Welch
20 February to 6 March 2002
Two weeks till Xmas - who would believe it! Today is our last day and the weather is lovely! It has rained all week but it has not dented our spirits … a lovely quiet family week.

The villa is very comfortable and we highly recommend that you visit Olympus Palace restaurant - best food and wonderful friendly atmosphere - Andreas will take good care of you!

Have a lovely holiday! We did!

We flew into Paphos and were greeted with the beautiful Cyprus sun and warm breezes. Our car at the airport was waiting for us with the efficiency of Petsas & Sons Ltd.

The directions to Pissouri were first class and it was a sheer delight to see ‘Kambos’ for the first time. Thank you so much for the welcome pack waiting for us on our arrival.

Kambos is beautiful and thank you for allowing us to share your lovely home.

We have toured Cyprus and have been delighted with the warmth and hospitality of the Cypriot people, but there is so much more we would want to see. So it is a case of "see Cyprus (and Kambos)" and we are compelled to come back again.

What can we say that hasn’t already been said! The villa is lovely and well kept. The groceries that were here on our arrival were very welcome. Everything is reasonably priced, can’t believe that for the first time ever we will be taking money home with us!! The best thing for us has been that we discovered the water sports on Pissouri Beach run by Yiannos and Dia who welcomed us as though we were old friends and we sat with them and other English people who now live here for most of the week. Joe has been "skipper" for Yiannos and if you want to learn to ski, he is your man (and so cheap).

Limassol was good for a visit, pretty harbour and good shops in the old town. A week was not long enough and, to coin an old phrase, "we’ll be back". The two afternoons of rain did not dampen our spirits.

Bob Cooper & Anne Jennings & sons Kieran (16), Joe (9) 21 to 28 October 2001
A wonderful week at Kambos. It was a pleasure to stay here, everything so beautifully cared for and such a lovely pool. This was our second visit to Pissouri and certainly won’t be the last. We liked the little taverna called "Monte Beach". They were so friendly and it was nice to sit and look at the sea - lovely grilled swordfish and salads, and excellent grilled trout.

Thanks Jim and Mary for keeping this house so spotless, and we enjoyed the wine very much.

Oh dear I do not want to go home!

This villa is really lovely. The breeze coming across the gorge is very much appreciated. Many thanks to Jim and Mary, though we’ve never met you. Thank you for the bottle of wine and groceries in the fridge. It was very welcome as we arrived very late so. nowhere was open.

Haven’t given the goats a drink - honest. The last time we were here in Cyprus was 10 years ago. So we have noticed a lot of changes. But it’s still a lovely place and the Cypriot people are still very nice and friendly.

Well our holiday is nearly at an end and now we’ll be sorry to go home in one way. We’ve had a wonderful time, and we certainly won’t leave it another 10 years before we return.

Nick and Mary Wood 23 to 30 September 2001
Yes! As we said we will come back again and here we are. What a lovely place this is - so friendly, nice and hot. We love coming here; we would love to live here one day - it’s so very friendly. We haven’t had one bad meal yet which is very good and the sun setting is out of this world.

The people next door are very nice. All in all a great place to have a holiday. Would come back once again - maybe two years time as we came the last two years.

It's wonderful to be back in Cyprus again. Even better to return to our favourite place - Pissouri. Left London in waterproofs and arrived at Larnaca in 29C heat! The villa is superb, it has everything. The air conditioning has been a godsend in the bedroom, although as always the Pissouri 'breeze' is refreshing. For us, there is nowhere better to eat than the Hideaway. The food is wonderful. We recommend his house red wine, which he gets from a vineyard along the coast. We look forward very much to returning next year to Pissouri. Two weeks in Cyprus, in Kambos Villa is definitely not long enough! Have as wonderful a time as we have had to all who follow us to this fantastic place. Dorothy & Alan Wilde, Sharnbrook, Beds 8 – 22 July 2001
Another wonderfully relaxing holiday here at Kambos Villa, slightly changed by our circumstances, but still as enjoyable. The goats are still as demanding for their early morning drink, the eagles still as dramatic as they soar overhead, and the swallows still chatter as they swoop into the pool for insects. The restaurants still serve the best food we have ever had – far too good – must both be pounds heavier on the way home! Still, now it’s back to reality. Hope we can manage to get back to our dream again next year. Dave & Val Goodian, Ilkeston, Derbyshire 24 June – 8 July 2001
We had all had an excellent holiday with glorious weather. The pool has kept Stuart & Jamie amused, and when we have managed to tear them away from it we have visited a couple of sites, our favourite being The Temple of Apollon Hilates towards Kourion. The bar-b-q has served us well and we have bought most of our groceries from Orphanides – it has everything and more! We are all wonderfully tanned and ready for the onslaught of a British Summer?! Ian, Hazel, Stuart & Jamie Franks, Northants 27 May – 10 June 2001
We have warmed to Pissouri with each day passing. Would like to come back. This holiday is dedicated to our good friends Chris and Jill who could not make it due to illness – get well soon Jill. They persuaded us to come here! Have a great holiday to all who follow. Barry & Yvonne James 13-27 May 2001
First time in Cyprus for us too – we visited Troodos Mountains and the Kykkos Monastery – worth doing. Weather let us down – we experienced wind and electric storms, but I think we did well in between, compared to Portugal and Turkey! We think Pissouri is a nice village – one of the best – and the villa is in a good spot. We would all come back again. Lynda & Richard Baldelli, June Brindley & Carol Reade, Gresham, Worcs April/May 2001
Our first visit to Cyprus and the villa and its location were all we had hoped for. The weather was good on the whole; the mosaics at Paphos are superb, Kourian is in a spectacular setting, and the Archeological Museum in Nicosia is stunning. John & Antony enjoyed wind surfing, and climbing down the valley behind the villa to the beach. We all enjoyed a trip into the Troodos mountains and walking through fresh snow on Mount Olympus. The restaurants in Pissouri give plenty of choice; The Two Friends, the Hideaway, the Bunch of Grapes & the Olympus were the best. John, Wendy & Anthony Colles, Suffolk 1-11 April 2001
Our first visit to Cyprus and we couldn’t have had a better ‘base’. Rushed around the island for 3 days and only then relaxed enough to enjoy Pissouri & Kambos. The villa exceeded our expectations and the weather was excellent – we even swam in the pool twice. But what happened to the goats? We didn’t see a single one. Thanks for lending us your home. Andrew & Sian Sharpe, York 11-18 March 2001
Once again, we have had a great holiday at Villa Kambos! We had two thunderstorms and strong winds, but since then the weather has been beautiful – blue skies all day and the temperature has been in the mid 20s for the last three weeks. We have enjoyed our walks in the evening, especially the ones that ended up at the Olympus Palace to sample the great food and wine. We shall miss the sunsets and the stars, and the general tranquility, and look forward to coming again soon. Many thanks to Jimmy and Mary for their usual thoughtfulness and care. Ann & Dave Dudley, Westbury Park, North Staffs 8 October – 15 November 2000
Good holiday, excellent villa, hope to return again next year. Mr & Mrs Hostell, London October 2000
Super holiday, super villa, super pool. A wonderful relaxed 2 weeks in the sun. The goats were fascinating, some wonderful memories to keep us going through the British winter. Bill & Glenda Morris, Arlesey, Beds 13-27 September 2000
We enjoyed a very relaxing week at Kambos. Many thanks Alan, Sue & Penny Gordon 6-13 September 2000
Had a super week – lovely way to spend a honeymoon. Must come back next year. Tavernas in square very good – try the ‘Fish Pie’ in the Bunch of Grapes. Good mini-market down at Pissouri Beach – range of imported wines at reasonable prices. Wonderful, relaxing place – couldn’t ask for better. Best beach is Melanda, 10-15 minutes towards Episkopi. Great holiday / honeymoon – we’ll be back next year if you lot haven’t already booked it all up! Martin & Norma Vellacott, Brantham, Suffolk 30 July – 6 August 2000
An even more relaxing holiday than last year - didn’t think it possible. Pissouri & Kambos must be the perfect place to get away from everything & everybody (except for the swallows & goats) - absolute bliss. Looking forward to next year very much. Mr & Mrs Goodwin, Derbys 25 June - 9 July 2000
A wonderful place to spend our honeymoon! Very relaxing and peaceful, the perfect place to unwind after the busyness of the last few months. We’re told we’ve had the worst May weather for 10 years - but it still beats Britain, and it certainly didn’t spoil our special time in Cyprus. We even managed to get in the pool a couple of times for a very bracing swim! Thank you! Mark and Debbie Dawson, London 23 April - 7 May 2000
This is a delightful wheelchair-friendly villa in a stunning situation. The regular processions of the 300+ goats have kept us amused, and we have marvelled at the flight of the griffon vultures so close to us. Mr & Mrs Dudley, Mr & Mrs Clowes, Staffs 16 October - 13 November 1999
Great holiday villa, the best we have been to so far in Cyprus. Hope to return next year. Mr & Mrs Hovell, London 16-? September 1999
As stated by all the previous occupants - weather wonderful, villa wonderful & the people in the villa were very friendly. The goats were very amusing & you could set your watch by them. We never go back anywhere twice - but we feel Kambos villa & Pissouri will be the exception to our rule. Mr & Mrs Jones, Shropshire 1-15 September 1999
Villa was great - holiday was great and we are coming back next year, you’ll see. I hope you enjoy your holiday just like we did The Williamson family, Scotland 7-21 July 1999
Wonderful villa - wonderful holiday. What more can be said? Apart from can’t wait until next time!! Mr & Mrs Goodwin, Derbys 20 June - 4July 1999
Great villa. Wonderful weather. Excellent food & drink. Can’t ask for anything more. Mr & Mrs Theobald, Mr & Mrs Strudwick, Essex & Suffolk ? - 20 June 1999
What a great two weeks. Lovely weather, superb villa, the pool got warmer each day. The goats fascinated us, you could set your watch by them. Hope we can return soon, we both feel really rested now. Mr & Mrs Botterill, Northants 7-21 May 1999
We had a fabulous week’s holiday, wish it had been longer. This villa is wonderful, & a breathtaking view. We will return!! Mr & Mrs Payn, Beds 13-20 March 1999
Wonderful holiday, very well appointed villa. Hope to come again. Mr & Mrs Halkyard, Manchester 4-17 October 1998
Excellent accommodation - excellent holiday. Weather fabulous - sorry to go!! The Dudgeon family, Staffs 2-16 August 1998
