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.

                                                            The description and photos provided were a good representation of what we got. All well-organised and clean despite the property and fittings not being totally new, it was a good experience. Whenever we had issues, we turned to Rosie who was always available and indeed visited twice. She had all our minor problems sorted within hours. In fact, some of the assisting people lived just round the corner! This was a clean, attractive, well-situated and well equipped property, well suited to providing comfortable accommodation for a family with kids. Not far away was a really good and inexpensive supermarket, Metro, where we did most of our shopping. Even closer, about 1km away is one of the best bakeries I have come across: great bread, unbelievable cakes, and interesting savoury meals with local produce. The restaurants in the area were all clean and good and absolutely value for money. Cyprus is in that respect good value for money (unless you are earning pounds now after Brexit!). Prices and quality in line with other EURO countries. The whole experience was pleasing, civilised, easy going for us and the kids and despite being France lovers, we are already talking about going again some time. Great experience, well organised. Thanks to Owners Direct / Villas4Kids.

                                                            Our hosts Cathryn and Alan could not have been more helpful from before our arrival they helped to organize our wedding day, without them I am ot sure that we would have had such a great day !1 The villa is everything they promised and more, great pool area, large villa very clean and well run. I would strongly recommend this villa to anyone wanting to have a trouble free vacation and knowing that you have two very helpful people behind you to assist in anything you require. Alan and Cathryn your villa etc is a credit to you both !!! John and Elena

                                                            Villa Sophia - Everything we hoped for and more...

                                                            We have just returned from a fantastic holiday in Kapparis staying in Villa Sophia. As we usually stay in hotels/apartments, this was our first time holidaying in a Villa. From the moment of booking, we were quickly confident and any doubt was replaced by excitement! All our requests were handled in a very professional manner by Chris. The Villa had everything to help make your holiday as easy and relaxing as possible with young children, the safe fenced play area, paddling pool, Wendy house, toys, books, DVDs along with stair gates, baby monitor etc. everything is child friendly. Rosie, the rep for the area was friendly and courteous. She called in to see us the morning after our arrival and we didn't need to contact her again at all during our stay which, in my opinion speaks volumes! Everything was just 'perfect' . The area is very quiet and peaceful, with a nice balance of shops and restaurants! Tony's restaurant is good, great food and a large play area for the children. Ten minutes in a local taxi takes you to the Protaras strip if you want to sample some more shops and restaurants. All in all the Villa is superb in a brilliant location and we will most certainly be returning next summer. We would highly recommend Villas4Kids to anyone considering booking.....go for it, you will absolutely love it!!
