Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Sotira - Villa Sofia

4 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, 1 shower cubicle - sleeps 8 + 1-2 cots

description from owner

Sofia villa is a lovely 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom villa which has pool and slight sea views from the balconies, a large private pool, BBQ, it’s fully air conditioned and is only a short walk from the sea, beach and restaurant/bars,. Its only 3km from Ayia Napa and is on a bus route with runs between 7am and 4am every day from May to October.

The villa has 4 bedrooms, one master bedroom upstairs, with balcony access and a double bed. There are two twin rooms upstairs consisting of two single beds in each and a master bathroom upstairs with toilet facilities, bath and shower combined. The fourth bedroom is downstairs and consists of a king sized bed. It also has a shower in the room. All of the bedrooms have fitted wardrobes, air conditioning units (heat or airconditioning), bedside tables and reading lamps and curtains / blinds.

The living room and dining area both have large patio doors opening out to the pool which offers a refreshing breeze or alternative to the airconditioning. The living room has a sofa area with LCD tv with satellite channels in English. There is complimentary wifi and soft homely furnishings. We also have a variety of books and games and offer an A4 binder full of area information.

We have everything you would need to make the villa home from home and if there is something you require before you book - just let us know and we will see what we can arrange for you. We have a variety of pots and pans for cooking, tupperware, glasses and mugs as well as crockery and cutlery. We have a large fridge freezer & washing machine. There is also a water cooler with a large water container which you can fill up just a short distance away from the villa for 1euro.

We have plenty of lovely areas to enjoy outside the villa. The pool area has a shaded patio which is ideal if you wish to enjoy a meal in the shade or lay out of the sun. We have a great size pool with built in steps and it is cleaned twice a week throughout your stay. We have sunbeds with comfortable cushions and two drinks tables around the pool, all are in the sun for the majority of the day. There is a poolside shower and the villa is fenced for privacy. We also have a children’s size table tennis.

The villa is ideal for guests attending weddings at the Olympic Lagoon Hotel, Aneas Beach hotel, Dome or Nissi Beach hotels as it is within 5 minutes of them all on a straight road by car / bus.

One of the nicest things about booking a villa with us is knowing that we have a team on hand 24 hours a day, we can help you with general information, advice or if you have a problem. We can arrange airport transfers (taxis), car hire or quad bike hire or give you information on bus routes and timetables. We can also arrange hire items such as cots, high chairs, stair gates and camp beds. Another service we offer is a personalised shopper who can arrange anything you need like food, nappies etc to be ready and waiting at the villa when you arrive. Our aim is to make your journey as easy as possible so you can dive straight into enjoying your holiday. We want you to fall in love with Cyprus the way we did all those years ago when we were visitors :) All of our team are English speaking and some of our team also speak Cypriot, we work with google translate for other languages so rest assured you are in safe, caring hands.

The Famagusta District

Cyprus is known as the island of love and boasts so many qualities that it is unbelievable. Unraveled beauties lie in Cyprus among the beautiful crystal clear Mediterranean waters and stretches of sandy beaches you will discover amazing churches, caves and Greek monuments that will never cease to amaze. The traditional language is Cypriot (Dialect of Greek) although most people speak English as well. If you venture into the older towns you will see many older men, sitting with friends, playing the local game of 'tavli' also known as backgammon and drinking 'frappe' which is like a cold coffee. They sit and watch the world go by and you won't be able to stop and look in amazement!

The Famagusta (Amoxostos) region is made up of 4 main touristic areas Protaras, Pernera, Kapparis and Ayia Napa, all bringing something different to the table. Protaras is a horseshoe shaped resort that follows the beautiful Protaras coastline and is the proud home to the famous Fig Tree Bay beach. It is a family friendly resort area with plenty of bars, restaurants, cafes and shops.

Pernera is well known for its great restaurants and the walkway that connects Protaras and Pernera by the sea and boasts some great restaurants such as Thomas the Shack, The Mexican, La cultura del Gusta & Blue Spice. In the general region there are so many things to offer vacationers. For families there are great family restaurants, the water park, go-karting, Luna Park with rides for all ages, themed boat trips, pottery making and the Aquarium. For those who enjoy culture and history, make sure you checkout the beautiful churches, the St Elias church and views, Ayia Napa monastery, Thallasa museum, the viewpoint of Famagusta, Cape Greco Nature reserve and sea caves as well as many excursions.

Don't forget that the island is only about 2 hours in length, there are beautiful archaeological areas such as the Kourion, Amathous, Tombs of the kings and Aphrodite's Rock. The Troodos mountains are beautiful and offer many wine routes, lace making villages and beautiful cobbled street traditional areas.

Ayia Napa

Cyprus is a family orientated country and the locals welcome children almost anywhere and there are plenty of things for families to occupy the days and nights. It is an ideal country for couples, friends and groups as it has so much variety on the island. Kapparis is a great area to visit with families as it is only 5 - 10 minutes from the life and soul of Pernera and Protaras which have an abundance of bars, restaurants, childrens activities and entertainment yet in a quiet enough location to enjoy uninterrupted sleep, peaceful days and a variety of family beaches.

The villa is located close to some of the best beaches in Europe. Some of the best voted beaches you may have heard of are Nissi Beach known for its gorgeous sand and crystal clear waters and its uplifting party atmosphere day and night. Firemans beach and Trinity bay and harbour with the crystal clear waters offers a quieter more peaceful approach to the day and are beautifully sandy and generally not as crowded as other beaches.

The blue flag award scheme has 27 regulations that countries must follow in order to be awarded and Kapparis has two of these beaches, Firemans beach and Trinity Bay. The rules include safety and clean, tidy bathing areas and swimming areas. Nearly all of beaches have sunbeds and umbrellas available for hire and have beach side facilities such as toilets and showers.

Just a few hundred meters away you will find a supermarket / mini shop offering groceries, milk and everyday items and there is a children's play area by the pool.

Kapparis and Pernera are only 10 minutes away and boasts many shops, bars and restaurants with menus to suit all tastes. There are numerous bars with sky sports & nightly entertainment. We can recommend you trying the Shack restaurant, blue spice, Los Bandidos Mexican and the Japanese restaurant Hokido for just a few great meals, however you will be lost for choice with so many amazing restaurants.

Let's not forget about the one of the largest themed water parks in Europe and one of the 12 best water parks in the world (Wikipedia) which is just 15 minutes away. The water park is themed around the Greek Mythology and is a great day out for all of the family. Next to the waterpark is also a go-karting area. In Ayia Napa you will also find a Luna Park with rides and Protaras has mini golf and other activities for both adults and children.

1 family bathrooms, 1 shower rooms

reviews:

Great villa, good size pool and plenty of amenities. The directions were really good and management company are really helpful. Very clean and tidy and free wifi. The pools large and i liked the built in steps. We found the area quiet and it’s walking distance to the sea and a shop. Only about 10 minutes from Ayia Napa and lots of great places in Cyprus to explore. Would recommend this villa for families and couples.

Golf!: Nearest Golf is:-

Golf Training Field, Eastern Mediterranean University - Famagusta.

This field is established in 2001 to serve golf lovers to do training on this grass field. The artificial hills and sand obstacles make the field much better for the people who want to do training.

fantastic holiday villa

  • 5 of 5

got to the villa late on the friday, as soon as you walk in the front door you know you have made the right choice,it was very clean and well-maintained. there were six of us staying which included a 20 month old . out side is a metal shed which has sun beds a bbq and lots of toys for the kids to play in the pool.just about 150 yards a way is a little supermarket which has all you need plus next door to it is a bar/restaurant very good value. less than 600 feet away is the beach which is abit rocky but you can still have lots of fun in the clear blue sea. at the top of the road is the main road to get to ayia napa by bus or cab, worth the tip it's not all night clubs.

the description of the villa is not accurate IT'S BETTER it has all the thing you need for a fantastic holiday HOME with out being over priced . we will be back soon.

1st visit to Cyprus

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the villa in June/July 2011 on our first holiday to Cyprus and thoroughly enyoyed it, the villa was everything expected and more,the little bar and supermarket down the road was very handy and reasonably priced too! The villa was very comfortable and very well equipped,didnt take us long to settle in!!!!! It was well situated near to everything we needed, the beach,waterpark a nice little taverna in Sotira and of course a short trip to Ayia Napa. Lorraine and Denis were very helpful with information about the place before the holiday and the couple who look after the villa in cyprus were very helpful while we were there giving us advice on what to do and where to go and there if we had a problem with anything!! Overall we had a really lovely holiday the Villa,people and place itself was great and we would definately come back again and have already recommended the villa to friends!

We found the property to be exactly as described in the advert and more, in fact just perfect. The small supermarket about 100 metres down the road was very handy, also the bar/restaurant next door to that, where we had some excellent meals, served by nice friendly staff. On our first visit to Cyprus, we were impressed by how helpful and friendly people were, it put our faith back in mankind. Lorraine and Denis were also extremely helpful, even to the extent of organising car hire, which was very much appreciated. We hope to return next year and will be recommending this lovely villa to our friends and relatives.

Car: not necessary

The Heart of Agia Napa is only a 5 minute drive away, Protaras is less than 10 minutes drive and within 10 minutes there are too many stunning beaches to name personally so rent a car and explore. Agia Thekla beach is only 900m away; here the children can play for hours in the white sand and the shallow warm water in the sheltered lagoon. It’s only a 2 minute drive to the award winning Water world water park guaranteed fun for all the family. All amenities are within easy walking distance, ie supermarket, beach, restaurants, cafe with sky sports, buses, waterpark and Potamos harbour.
