'Lovely villa in peaceful & relaxing surroundings, highly recommended. Organisation was excellent from the directions down to the selection of guidebooks & info at the villa. A fantastic holiday, we'll definitely be back.' Nathan & Laila, June 2013.
Villa Swalletta is a wonderfully furnished 3-bedroom holiday home in 'prime position' on the favoured edge of the popular St Christopher's Village Development. With superb views of the beautiful countryside and its rolling hills, valleys, olive trees and orange groves. Sit and relax on the large balcony that sweeps around the back of the villa where you can enjoy a glass of wine watching the sun setting over the mountains in the distance - bliss!
The villa is only 400m-500m from the local supermarket, charming tavernas and bars in the village itself and a short drive to Mazotos or Anglisides where there is a wider selection of shops, supermarket, pharmacy, bars, restaurants and beaches.
Villa Swalletta is a modern 3-bedroom holiday home (sleeps 6-8 as it has an additional sofa-bed in the lounge area). No expense has been spared on the stylish furniture and interiors to make sure you have all the luxuries you need for an enjoyable stay. Each of the 3 Bedrooms at Villa Swalletta has its own en-suite shower room or en-suite bathroom. There is a double bedroom on the ground floor with an en-suite shower room and lots of fitted wardrobe space. The other 2 bedrooms are upstairs. A twin bedroom is located at the front of the property with an en-suite shower room and large fitted wardrobes. The master bedroom looks out over the back towards the hills and countryside and also benefits from a set of fitted wardrobes, an en-suite bathroom and a large balcony. Here you can sit listening to the birds first thing in the morning whilst enjoying your coffee waiting for the rest of the family to surface!
Downstairs is designed to maximise space and openess by incorporating a large, light and airy open-plan living area (lounge/diner) and a modern fully equipped kitchen. There is also a handy additional downstairs cloakroom/WC. As mentioned previously - the 3rd double bedroom is situated here downstairs with an en-suite shower room.
We also have WiFi / Internet access so you can stay in touch with home!
Patio doors lead you out of the open-plan lounge/dining area to the terrace and garden/pool area where you can jump in the pool and cool off from the heat of the Cyprus sun, or sit and relax reading a book on our sun loungers. We have a large dining table and chairs with a parasol for you to enjoy eating breakfast/lunch or dinner al-fresco! Or why not fire up the BBQ and enjoy an evening of burgers and beers!
Here at Villa Swalletta, you will experience the traditional Cyprus. Surrounded by beautiful countryside, olive groves, rolling hills, valleys and traditional Cypriot villages, away from the noisy, hustle and bustle of the busy tourist areas. Here you can truly relax, unwind and escape from the rat-race of every day life back home and enjoy quality time with your children, friends and family in a safe and welcoming environment.! Here you can experience the marvellous views, scenic drives, long walks, bike rides, jogging and the many archaeological sites that Cyprus' 10,000 year old history has to offer.
Our unique 30-page information pack gives you links and lots of information on all the best flight companies for you to try. So make sure you open this PDF when you get our response to your enquiry as it has lots of helpful hints and tips in it. We also give you details of the best Car Hire companies and advice about Taxis too.
Larnaca is the closest airport.
Most UK airports fly to Cyprus. Larnaca airport is the closest to Villa Swalletta (approx. 15-20 minutes away). You could also fly in to Paphos airport but please be aware that this is further away and would take about 1½ hours to get to the villa by car.
There are a whole host of car hire companies to choose from. We point out the best ones in our info pack, so make sure you check these out when we reply to your enquiry. We even give you the links to their web sites to save you looking them all up! A car would be recommended here at Anafotida to enable you to make the most of the area and all it has to offer.
If you would rather have a taxi collect you from Larnaca airport, I can book this for you with the firm I have used for many years. They are very reliable and have never let me down. These pre-booked taxis are generally cheaper than jumping in a taxi that's outside the airport. Our driver meets you as you exit the arrivals hall - holding a sign with your name on and takes you straight to the villa.
Wonderful holiday! Well-organised, good information and fast support from Tracy and the caretakers in Cyprus. First time in a long time we were sad to be going home. Café Aman was enjoyable – too much food! The area was very nice away from the hordes, relaxed and natural.
ANAFOTIDA - the villa is only 200-300m from Anafotida, a traditional Cypriot village which is mainly agricultural, with tomatoes being a dominant crop. The village has seen a huge make-over of late with massive investment in its infrastructure. A charming new village square has been created with new lighting and pedestrianized areas with all the new paving extending outwards from the village centre. It is well worth a wander with a “refreshment” stop in one of the local bars or try a Meze in the popular Café Aman where Andreas and his wife will welcome you with open arms! There are 4 churches, 4 cafés (1 is a restaurant), a really good little village supermarket for all the essentials, a bank (no ATM though), a barber shop, a small hairdresser's and a garage.
ANGLISIDES - is about 3km from Anafotida and is slightly bigger with a number of cafés, 2 banks with ATMs, a lovely bakers and a great butchers shop opposite. There are 2 small garden centres and it also has 2 supermarkets with good supplies to save you going in to Larnaca.
MAZOTOS - located about twelve miles south-west of Larnaca town and 5-10 mins from the villa, is a traditional Cypriot village, again, primarily of agricultural nature with an abundance of Olive groves to be found in the surrounding area. Whist the village proper is somewhat set back from the coast, a few restaurants and even the Camel Park which is a very popular local tourist attraction (great for adults and kids alike), can be found closer to the seafront. The beach at Mazotos is only 10-15 minutes away where you'll see many people walking along the scenic walkway, fishing or sunbathing. The beach here at Mazotos now has a funky beach bar with sunbeds, tables, chairs etc. and a bit further along is the new Kite Surf school where some of our guests have had surfing lessons. There’s also another little gem of a local beach that we’ve recently found; not far from the villa at “Secret Paradise of Alaminos”. It’s well worth a visit and is very clean and tidy with good food and has been recommended by our guests.
If you're looking for something a little livelier than Anafotida, Anglisides and Mazotos, then LARNACA, with its vibrant nightlife, is only a 20-25 minute drive away. Alternatively, you could go in to LIMASSOL, which is slightly further along the coast in the opposite direction (approx 30 mins away). As with Larnaca, Limassol has a very varied and vibrant night-life being a popular tourist resort for many years and has a popular Water Park.
AGIA NAPA, PROTARAS and PERNERA are about a 45 minute drive along the A3 motorway from the villa. Here you'll find a multitude of attractions, beaches, bars, discos and restaurants. At Agia Napa you can also enjoy the fantastic Water Word Waterpark.
TROODOS MOUNTAINS - Located in the heart of Cyprus, the locals have christened the mountains a “Walker's Paradise” due to the vast array of fabulous trails. But there's no shortage of sporting activities for the energetic amongst you from skiing in the winter to paragliding, mountain bike riding, hiking, running and even rock climbing! There's also a multitude of sightseeing excursions in the Troodos Mountains. Take your pick from Byzantine Cypriot churches to the wine producing villages on the southern Troodos hills. Visit the Venetian Bridges near Tres Elias village or the village of Fini where you can buy some local handmade pottery. Or go and see the monks at the Kykkos Monastery. SKIING IN THE TROODOS MOUNTAINS - Skiing is usually available in the winter months from the beginning of January to the end of March. There are 5 slopes and 4 lifts (Hera, Aphrodite, Hermes and Zeus) and runs vary in ability for beginners through to advanced and they even offer routes for cross country skiers. You can hire equipment at the Cyprus Ski Club “ski shop”. Get there early though, as, on a busy weekend, the best equipment goes very fast!
All our guests receive a complimentary copy of our unique 30-page 'Villa Swalletta' Guest Information Pack crammed full of information about the area and giving tips and ideas about things to do. We send you a cut down version of this as a PDF document attached to our response to your initial enquiry. It also gives you links to all the Flight Companies and tips about Car Hire and Taxis plus lots, lots more.
