About Brian Downey

We own the villa with another couple. We both have young children, so the villa has everything for a family holiday. We still think we are young! So often visit the nearby Ayia Napa and Protaras, then head back to the village to chill.

Brian Downey purchased this villa in 2011

Why Brian Downey chose Sotira

We love the local village which is very friendly and lets us experience the real Cyprus, everything is in walking distance so you can enjoy the local tavernas and stroll home. We hire a car, so that we can explore the numerous beaches and sheltered coves dotted along the coastline.

The location gives you the best of both worlds, the village life and a short drive to visit the tourist areas of Ayia Napa and Protaras.

What makes this villa unique

• Private landscaped garden with palm trees and private 7.5 x 3.5 metre pool and sun terrace. Panoramic rear views of rural countryside scattered with windmills makes for an idyllic backdrop for wonderful sunsets.

• Balcony to catch the breeze and catch up on your latest novel

• Gated pool entrance to the rear of the house to help keep the children safe.

Great Villa in a quiet area

  • 5 of 5

The Villa is nicely located in Sotira village, in a quiet neighbourhood. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone willing to stay in Sotira. Brian was very helpful with assisting me booking the villa, and the management team is always willing to help with any enquiry.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of eight really enjoyed the two week holiday, the villa was in a lovely quiet area, it was very clean and welcoming. the baby equipment was really useful , highchair , cot ,bouncing chair , stroller could not ask for more . The bedrooms were large and beds very comfortable. The two restarants nearby were very friendly and the food was very good. We had a car which was needed to travel into Aypa Napa. Mary was lovely and returned our calls promptly . will definitely book this villa again

Overall ok.

  • 3 of 5

Overall ok.

Nice big big roomy villa and clean.

Look and feel , furniture, rooms, kitchen and surround is fantastic.

Bed sheets did smell as if they weren't cleaned.

No welcome pack.

Downstairs shower head is leaking.

Pool needs relining as it has all come off from the floor and walls.

House gets very hot compared to other villas.

Guess this is the way it was built.

Air con units need servicing or not powerful enough.

Overall good.

Many thanks

Owner's Response: Update: New pool is complete and ready for our guests, Happy Holidays... Thanks for your comments, we welcome all feedback. We have a guest book in the villa which people readily use too. If you experience a problem, please do not wait until the end of your holiday to complain about it; we have a management team onsite who could have rectified all of these problems, (some of which we dispute) except the pool lining. The pool issue has happened recently and will be replaced out of season, so we do not have to close the pool for guests already booked this year.

fantastic family holiday

  • 5 of 5

FANTASTIC ........

We had a lovely time at this villa it is within walking distance of shops/restaurants/and bakeries. The villa is great for families with children as we have 2 small children and found that it had a lot of space for them to run and play. We would also say the couple who look after the villa live across the road and are very helpful with anything you nèed. The owner of the villa is very helpful and answered all questions put to him before travelling. We would recommend this villa to all our friends/family and hopefully be coming back next year.

Schöne, geräumige Villa in ruhiger Lage.

  • 5 of 5

Die Villa liegt in idealer Lage um den Südosten der Insel zu erkunden. Der nette Vermieter antwortet prompt per Mail und geht, trotz der räumlichen Distanz,auch auf individuelle Wünsche ein.Eine Kontaktperson ist vorort telefonisch zu Erreichen und löst kleinere Probleme ,wie den Tausch einer leeren Gasflasche .Die kluge Art der Schlüsselübergabe lässt flexible Anreiseuhrzeiten zu.

Wer den Pool nutzen möchte und Wert auf Sauberkeit legt muss schon mal selbst das hineingefallene Laub der angrenzenden Elefantengrashecke aus dem Wasser fischen.Danach aber steht dem Badespass bei geügend Liegemöglichkeiten nichts mehr im Wege.

Wir fanden die Wohnung in einem sauberen Zustand vor und die Bettmatratzen waren auch von guter Qualität.

Located on the South East Coast, Sotira is an endearing traditional Cypriot village where old meets new; ancient churches and lazy coffee houses sit beside interesting shops and individual boutiques.

There are a number of bars and 5 restaurants to eat within the village and all are walking distance. The food is fresh and locally sourced and very reasonable, especially in comparison to the holiday resorts. There are banks, bakeries for fresh breads and pastries, supermarkets and numerous local shops all on your doorstep.

The village has 5 pretty churches so you often find village festivals, there is even a small museum.

Travel South to the bustling resort of Ayia Napa or East to Protaras, catering for all your holiday needs from family fun to full on party if you so desire.
