Famagusta region: The Famagusta region is frequently described as the ‘jewel’ of the eastern Mediterranean. The region contains spectacular ruins, including a magnificent amphitheatre, Roman baths and royal tombs. The North of the border has now become accessible to tourists and is 20 minutes drive from the villa (don't forget your passport!) To the South there are a variety of locations from Pernera, Protaras to Paralimni to Ayia Napa (described below) that will suit most peoples preferences, from quiet quaint fishing villages nestled in sandy bays along the coast, to lively towns with a buzzing night life, up scale shopping and beach activities. A regular bus service runs along the coast from Paralimni to Protaras, and then on to the resort of Ayia Napa, the bus stop is just minutes away from our villa. The safe and crystal clear waters of this region are ideal for the full range of water sports. The breathtaking Cape Greco and beautiful beaches of konnos and fig tree bay are also in this region.
Paralimni: Close to the popular beach resort of Protaras is the town of Paralimni. This small town of 6,000 inhabitants is located approximately 40 minutes drive from Larnaca airport. There are many shops in the old town square, including Marks & Spencer, and plenty of restaurants, cafes and bars. Close to the square are charming fountain gardens, with an open air theatre hosting many popular entertainment evenings. The more historically minded will want to visit the museum, housed in the oldest of the town's three churches. Paralimni retains much of its old charm, with local crafts, souvenir shops and picturesque narrow streets. It is not unusual to come across fishermen quietly mending their nets in the shade of the vine-covered courtyards. The countryside surrounding Paralimni is famous for its windmills. There are many small villages within easy reach of Paralimni, each unique and well worth a visit for their historic and beautiful architecture.
Cape Greco and the surrounding areas: To the south of Paralimni is the wild and undeveloped peninsula of Cape Greco national park, a protected nature conservation area. The area is open to visitors, offering a wealth of rare flora and fauna, dramatic cliffs with sea caves, and spectacular views. It is known the world over as the destination of choice for snorkeling and scuba diving but also offers a wide range of interests such as cycling, riding, climbing, air sports, and hiking.
Ayia Napa is famous as the party capital of Cyprus, Ayia Napa boasts white sandy beaches, fun-filled theme parks, and the liveliest clubs and bars on the island. Yet a few miles further along, the scene at Potamos Liopetriou couldn’t be more different. Set in a quiet river estuary, this gem of a place is characterized by elaborately decorated fishing boats. And don't forget the mountains!. The stunning Troodos mountains can be reached within a couple of hours offering breathtaking views and winter skiing.
