Make a holiday rental home or villa in Famagusta region, Cyprus your home away from home

Famagusta, one of six districts in Cyprus, is certainly the most fascinating. Famagusta contains remnants of each step of Cyprus' turbulent past, and one day here will give you an insight into the history of the island, including the best examples of medieval architecture in the eastern Mediterranean. If you are looking for a Famagusta holiday for the beaches, you will certainly not be disappointed either. Visitors can find fantastic Cyprus villas in Famagusta with a wide range of facilities to make their holidays memorable.

Things to do in Famagusta, Cyprus

Famagusta holidays offer all that is best about beach holidays. The beaches are long, sandy and relatively quiet. You can enjoy the sea by sailing, windsurfing, scuba diving and swimming, and there is enough room on the beaches to play volleyball or tennis.

A Cyprus villa in Famagusta will also let you explore the wild and uninhabited Karpas Peninsula. The Karpas Peninsula stretches out into the Mediterranean, with miles of unspoilt, wide, sandy and entirely deserted beaches on either side.

The fabulous ruins of Salams in the north are defiantly worth a visit on a Famagusta holiday, as are the thirteenth century Cathedral of St Nicholas, and sixteenth century frescos in the Church of Ayios Mamas in Sotira. Local craftsmanship is still strong, and you can find fine examples of Cypriot jewellery, copper and pottery.

Places to holiday from Famagusta, Cyprus

Famagusta Town is fascinating. Occupied in 1974 by the Turkish military, half the town is a 'ghost town', with breakfast tables still left out, and shops filled with clothes, now decades out of fashion. It is still a de-militarised zone, and can be seen clearly from the new buzzing seaside resort of Famagusta town and the luxury Cyprus villas there. The spectacular ruins of the Roman amphitheatre, baths and tombs are easy to explore, and the mosaics of the monastery of St Barnabas are beautiful.

The most famous resort in Cyprus is Ayia Napa. The resort used to be famed for its nightlife, clubs and wild parties. While the facilities like go-carting, bungee jumping, helicopter rides and extensive water park remain, the 18-30s culture is being replaced by a culture of family holidays. The beaches here are large and shallow, and swimming is safe, and there are endless activities to be enjoyed, so a Cyprus villa in Ayia Napa is a great choice for a family holiday in Cyprus.

For a slightly quieter beach resort, Protaras is a resort town with a fantastic blue flag beach, and boast some of the finest restaurants and bars on the whole island. There are also top class facilities for both paragliding and jet skiing.

Weather in Famagusta, Cyprus

Cyprus enjoys long hot summers, with average August temperatures of 27°C. Being a Mediterranean climate, winters are extremely mild, with temperatures in January staying around 12°C, so there is never a bad time to take a Famagusta holiday villa.
