A holiday rental villa on Governors Beach has fantastic access to all that is beast about Limassol, from the towns of Larnica and Limassol to the dramatic peak of Mount Troodos, the archaeological marvels of Nicosia to the glorious cove beaches that line the coastline.

The location central to Cyprus and a great base to travel from, but is not close to beach or resorts you must have a hire car. The management team very helpful and polite. Highly recommend as a base to see and explore Cyprus

It's important to have a car if you stay here and there is under-cover parking dedicated to the apartment. The neighbourhood is quiet, and the village taverna will deliver if you don't feel like cooking. It's a short walk to the village which has a couple of bars and grocery shops. The apartment is well-equipped and homely and the television has literally hundreds of channels through a satellite dish. The terrace is probably the best feature - very large, with shade if needed and perfect for an evening barbecue.
