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.

It feels like it was built and designed to shoot fashion movies :) it has everything and more that you might need during your stay (even the home cinema!). The owners were very helpful with all the information and additional requests (e.g.we did not bring with us socket adapters, it was provided to us next day). Overall, we had very relaxing time. Thank you, Marie! Merci beaucoup, Augustin! :)

She was in contact via e-mail prior to the holiday and met us at the airport to guide us to the villa. She even popped by one day with Easter presents. I suggest a car, the villa is about 35 mins drive from Larnaca and the same for Limassol, so is vital if you want to explore the country. There is a Lidl about 15 mins drive away. We went on line via Zest and hired a car from SIXT, who have there pick up at Larnaca airport. For a family of five we got a VW Golf which was almost new , clean and appeared well maintained. The villa is to a high spec and has everything you need for the stay, it is close to the beach has a great pool and is away from the hoards. So if you want a quiet time you're on a winner. There is a tavern/restaurant about a mile along the coast which you can walk to, or there is one in the village, but you would need the car to get there. The family loved it and we all had a great time with wonderful memories. We will certainly come back. As an aside we flew from Heathrow and decided to get a taxi via British Airport Transfers. I was amazed they kept in touch via email arrived on time, drove my family and I safely to the airport at 03.00 without any hassle. We are also going home with them. Is was extra but check the price compared to the car park and consider the fact that you start and finish your holiday in a relaxed way, we loved it. In fact all in all the perfect holiday for all of us!
