The villa is in a beautiful and quiet area of Argaka, far from the mass tourism of the eastern side of the island. The garden is kept in excellent condition, also the swimming pool. We found many beauty spots on our drives in the area and a car is essential to enjoy it all to the full. We spent several days on the beach past Latchi but also discovered old villages in the Troodos mountains on our drives through amazing scenery. We were two retired couples and also sometimes enjoyed just relaxing by the pool before eating dinner at one of the good tavernas in Polis. All in all, an excellent stay.
Argaka is situated on the coast, just 7kms north of Polis, NW Cyprus. Famous for its magnificent sunsets and warm hospitality, Argaka is certainly the place to be, where the greek word filoxenia combines both hospitality and stranger!
Argaka is a small traditional Cypriot farming village, built along a ridge with magnificent views of the sea. Its location makes it the ideal place to just sit back and relax taking in the unforgettable scenery.
Dating back hundreds of years, the village is said to exist in medieval times. East of the village lies the restored church of Agia Varva which belonged to the Jerusalem Patriarchate and functioned until 1821.
The settlement of Argaka has two parts. There is Pano Argaka (Upper) and Kato Argaka (Lower). Upper Argaka represents the old settlement while Lower Argaka, which followed the Polis – Pomos – Nicosia road, is the new, linear-type settlement. The houses of the old settlement are mostly traditional, made with hewed limestone or with igneous pebbles. Because of the stream that crosses it (known as the River of Argaka), of the slope upon which it is built, and of the road through which it connects with the new settlement by the sea, the settlement of Argaka can be characterized as a relatively sparsely structured one.
The village features a selection of shops, supermarkets and banks, to satisfy all visitor's needs while on holiday.
Argaka has several dams where fishing may be possible. This part of the island is very fertile and has an abundance of fruit trees including figs, grapes, prickly pears, apples, oranges and lemons.
