|Minimum Stay||4 - 7 nights|
The villa is designed in a modern Cypriot style with flowing porcelain flooring and added marble tops. It is built in an elevated position, some five minutes drive from the beach, and offers uninterrupted and spectacular views of the Mediterranean and the Famagusta coastline. This villa is absolutely superb. It is positioned in a secluded and sought after area only five minutes drive to the beaches and Paralimni Town Centre. A car is however a necessity.
It offers three upstairs bedrooms (two super king rooms + one twin room with small double beds), which are all en-suite. The fourth bedroom located on the ground floor is a twin room with two small double beds and an adjacent shower and toilet. This is also perfectly suited as a second lounge or play area when trying to accommodate smaller children.
The lounge is fully equiped with a 50 inch plasma TV, SAT TV and cinema surround/DVD. There is also a Sony Playstation 2 with a selection of games. FREE unlimited Wi-FI is available for all guests to use during their stay. The kitchen is fully furnished with all utilities, such as a washer, tumble dryer and dishwasher. It also benefits from twin fridge/freezers, twin microwaves, twin ovens and dining seating for ten people with audio entertainment system. All rooms throughout the villa are equipped with air conditioning that is free to use.
The exterior facilities include a solar heated rim-flow swimming pool with the option of being heated via a boiler system subject to an additional daily charge, a Cypriot-style spit barbecue, sheltered area with table tennis table, sun loungers, table + chairs for eight persons, outdoor rattan lounge area and first floor terrace with table/chair set for taking in the sunset over the mountainous coastline and sea views.
Things to do: Protaras is by far one of the most popular destinations in Cyprus! It is renowned for its lovely beaches and clear azure seas. The town is situated on the narrow coastal plain that stretches from Cape Greko up to the east regional town of Paralimni. The location is probably the site of the ancient city-port Lefkolla where a multitude of Greko-Roman artefacts have been found.
The modern town of Protaras, though quieter than Agai Napa, is full of quality restaurants, shops and bars. Large, shallow, sandy beaches boasting amenities such as water sports and on-beach cafes and restaurants provide for an Mediterranean experience in the small town of Pernera Bay. The coastal roads originating from Protaras offers excellent pedestrian/cycle route which provides easy access to beaches in that area.
Attractions: The Prophet Elias Church is a must see when visiting Protaras since it is well renowned for its spectacular views. It is a small chapel built on a rocky outcrop. The church was recently rebuilt in 1984, but was erected on the foundations of a much older ruin. There are 153 steps up the hill, but it is well worth it!
There are two small fishing havens, one at Pernera and the other closer to Paralimni. These are protected by limestone breakwaters and are home to small fleets of brightly coloured fishing boats.
The rocky coastline of Agia Napa consist's of a series of small headlands and semicircular inlets up to Cape Greko, about 4 miles from the town. The area is a designated National Forest Reserve and there are several interesting nature trails and a picnic site in the area. The natural vegetation of the Cape consists of wild thyme, carob trees, juniper, and thorny gorse.
The views are incredibly impressive, as are the rock formations and marine terraces of the Cape. The Cape is home to the ruins of the temple (dedicated to the Goddess of love, Aphrodite).
The Palaces (original rock formation sculpted by the sea over a long period of time) offers an excellent location for swimmers. It is a spectacular diving location. Swimmers can dive off the rocks into the crystal clear water.

This amazing luxury villa was just as described in the listing.
Our family of seven were easily accommodated in this modern and spacious villa, which was set on a peaceful unmetalled road just a 5 minute drive from Protaras.
We were met by the property manager who showed us around and ensured that we were familiar with the appliances and electrics.
The 1 downstairs and 3 upstairs bedrooms were large and airy with adequate storage and each with its own bathroom , one also having a bath.
There is a safe in one of the bedrooms.
All bedrooms had air conditioning units and the master bedroom had a large balcony with patio furniture.
The living room had ample seating for us all and a large television with terestrial and some satellite channels. There was also free internet access available. There are three air conditioning units keeping the room at a comfortable temperature.
The open plan living room opens to a dining area with a dining suite and sideboard with a hi-fi system.
This opens onto a spacious central island with seating in the modern kitchen.
Two ovens, microwaves and fridge/freezers, a ceramic hob and sink along with plenty of cupboard space, crockery, utensils and cookware made it easy for the whole family to use the kitchen together.
Around the back of the kitchen behind a dividing wall there is a utility area with washing machine, sink and ironing board.
The furnishings were comfortable and all the rooms were clean and maintained to an adequate standard.
A useful and shaded terrace with seating and a coffee table is just through the sliding patio doors.
A second patio door leads to the side of the villa where a useful washing line is situated.
The outdoor pool is perfect for families, not too deep and warm enough to cool off in the hot temperatures.
There are 8 loungers and an outdoor dining table and chairs and the bbq is easy to use and meant we had a great al fresco meal on evenings in.
There is also a full size table tennis table and inflatable pool loungers to keep the family entertained.
The entrance to the villa has electric gates, providing privacy and security. The driveway and side of the villa ensure there is plenty of parking space and the gardens are neat and attractive.
There are ample sandy beaches in Protaras and in the nearby and quieter resort Panera. In Protaras we loved Lemongrass and the Greek restaurants. Lots of bars with live acts too.
We would highly recommend this property to friends and family.
I have just returned from a 2 week stay at villa Amani and if perfect peace and relaxation is what you are looking for then you need look no further. The villa is exactly as advertised infact the tranquillity is probably understated . It is spotlessly clean and luxurious with a lovely modern kitchen , very comfortable beds and a large fantastic pool all of which are very well maintained . You will want for nothing , everything has been thought of for your convenience . The booking process through Daryl at Millbrooke was very simple , the directions supplied were accurate and the customer service on site was second to none . I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family and would love to revisit myself in the not too distant future . Our only minor criticism would be that we found the sun loungers although fully functional not very comfortable . Apart from that it's 5 star all the way
Amani villa is a perfect layout for holidaying, with a single large open plan diner/kitchen/lounge, which opens out onto the pool area. This is ideal as everyone is effectively together all the time; no one stuck out of the way in a separate kitchen. The villa is very well appointed, with large comfy beds and quality furnishings. The location is good too, close to supermarkets, as well as touristy Protaras and Agia Napa. You must have a car though, as there really is nothing within a 40minute walking radius.
The selling agent Millbrooke, as well as the managers in Cyprus were very friendly, useful and responsive.
A couple of downsides for us were:
1. We travelled in shoulder season, October, so a primary reason for choosing this villa was that it was advertised as having a heated pool. Unfortunately this isn’t entirely true. The heating is a passive solar heating, rather than an active/powered heating. Despite full sun most days, the pool at this time of year was very cold, significantly lower than the sea which was lovely by the way. The kids still went in the pool a few times a day, but they literally had to come out with blue lips after 30mins. Adults went in once and never again. We stay in Cyprus a lot in October and always choose a heated pool, so it was a disappointment to discover this was not proper heating. This obviously isn’t much of an issue in the height of summer.
2. No Wifi/internet. It’s a shame that a villa so highly spec’d in furnishings, TVs, consoles etc doesn’t have internet. In this day, I see it as a must in a holiday villa for things like being able to check opening times, directions, restaurants etc.
3. Showers were great pressure and temperature for an individual, but the water pressure prevented more than one shower at once, so for a large capacity family like ours, it makes shower time quite prolonged.
Overall I would recommend this villa, but would not go again outside full summer due to unheated pool.
Absolutely Fantastic Villa all bedroom have access to own bathroom . The meet and greet was great really helpful. with tips on restaurants etc Places to go.
The booking through Millbroke properties was perfect weve never received so much help and information as they provided..
Do need a car as its not on the main bus route but is handy for nearby villages and stores.
Swimming pool was large enough and shallow at one end for kiddies. Table tennis was goo to have .
overall really great holiday fantastic villa .
thanks Daryl for all your help.
We booked an 11 night stay for a family holiday. We looked at the pictures and were confident it was a nice place not too far from the things we needed. We prefer a little seclusion but still want the choice to go to beaches etc. From the start the agents were brilliant the organisation effective and friendly. We arrived late at night around midnight and our first impression was awe - this is a substantial and imposing Villa. The house was immaculate everywhere and we soon came to realise that this is entirely down to the Cleaning/Admin team Ian and Anne who are on hand to advise and prepare the property for your visit. The furnishings are lavish, the open spaces are large and roomy (way bigger than the pictures suggest). The Pool was clean and a very good size (important to us). Two of the rooms have twin beds and whilst of good size better suited to children and perhaps a two family arrangement than 4 couples. The villa is close to everything, supermarkets within around 3 km's Protarus the same. Ayia Napa about 7km. Very close to Waterworld and Nissi beach (recommended) and of course Fig Tree Bay. If i could find anything at all negative to say it would be the floors are slippery when wet. This is a grand place to say which shows the owner is devoted to and cares about its upkeep. There is a team Paul the pool guy who gave us restaurant tips and the Solar Panel's were checked also while were there. The check out team were kind and accomodating and it all works very well. All in all the location, villa, service surpassed our expectations by some degree and i would urge anybody viewing to strongly consider booking (but not too many because we will likely go back. The owner has several other properties too all seem lavish and having seen this one i would be assured about the others. My advice if your thinking of Cyprus just book this we had a wonderful holiday here.
What a place.
Very clean, spacious ,all mod cons in good working order.
The meet and greet from Ann and Ian was very much hands on through out our stay the furniture and interior decoration was of a very high standard well done David the owner. booking the holiday with Darrell at mill brook was made so easy he accommodated our needs thank you Darrell.
A BIG THANK YOU FOR MAKING OUR HOLIDAY FANTASTIC TO ALL
Protaras itself has many attractions but most of all boasts with more than 10 miles of sandy beaches, perfect for any family getaway.
The Paralimni area has several small sandy coves that vary from busy to isolated. If you find tavernas, jet skis or other people irritating, just take your towel and wander along for a few minutes and you'll find a secluded bay.
Extending from the Constantinos the Great beach, southward to Fig Tree Bay, this stretch of coast offers wonderful golden sands. Safe, shallow water makes it especially suited to families with children, but everyone will find something to do along this coast, with plenty of water sports, seafront bars, and cafes. The shops and tavernas of Protaras are only a short walk away.
