My family enjoyed a great stay here at Carisa Gardens- it was all we could have wanted and more! Jill the owner was incredibly efficient at communicating with us and nothing seemed too much trouble😊 We loved the homey feel of this place , so well kitted out, and in an absolutely brilliant location for exploring the south coast of Cyprus! We loved our week and would love to return ! Thank you Jill !
We stayed in Seren Villa for 2 weeks from 7th to 21st Oct 2018.
The pool and huge patio are great for relaxing, but be warned the pool is not heated and took us a while to get into. Once in its great.
The villa is about 10 years old and is generally very nice, but could do with a coat of paint outside in places. Angela, the Property Manager, says this is happening soon over the quieter winter period.
Internally the house is very comfortable and has a huge lounge/dining area.
There is a "smart" TV, but as it does not have either satilite or terrestial TV you need to plug in a laptop or memory stick to watch pre recorded films or progams. There is also a Nintendo console, but as I am not technical, I didn't really understand this.
I would have preferred a TV that I could have watched the BBC news on.
Angela is very helpful and friendly. We paid her directly into an English bank account, and it meant there were no worries about exchange rates etc. She communicated by e-mail very speedily, and as she lives locally was on hand to help and guide us.
Alethriko is about 15 minutes from Larnaka Airport by car, and easy to find. It is also about the same distance from the sea and beaches. You do need a car to explore and find the beach that suits you-Zygi, with free sunbeds, loos and changing huts and a selection of restaurants/bars was one of the nicest but about 35 mins away.
Alethriko, only has two restaurants-Kokos Taverna is a 10 minute walk away. Food is simple, freshly cooked for you and so cheap we thought the bill was wrong.
The other tavern, is a bit further away- say a 20 min walk or 5 min drive. It is next to the Bakers-which also sells milk, beer and a selection of groceries as well as bread and cakes.
There are no bars in the village.
The roads are generally quiet, but there is a speed hump close to Seren Villa and sometimes trucks going over can be a bit noisy.
Apart from that it was very peaceful
