|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Villa Cycas is a modern holiday house in the best beach resort of Cyprus: Protaras. Among its nicest features is its location: in walking distance to the restaurants and pubs of down town Protaras holiday resort, but still far enough to be quiet and private.The beautiful beaches of Protaras, Fig Tree bay, Sunrise beach and Pernera are all within 10 minutes walk. The house has a very nice new pool and has a very large sun deck and garden area. The house is situated on a private road in a quiet complex of 5 houses. There are two bedrooms and a bathroom on the second floor and a third bedroom downstairs that, if not used, can be opened up to extend the living area. All bedrooms are air-conditioned. The living room with flatscreen TV opens up completely to the back garden with very nice view over the fields and hills where every night a beautiful sunset can be enjoyed. In the cooler season this room is like an atrium, warm and light. It has a spacious and modern kitchen, with fitted bar/dining table.
The house has free wifi internet. There is a flatscreen TV with local stations plus Euronews.
Villa Cycas is on a private dead-end road with traffic from only the visitors to the 5 houses on the road.
The closest supermarkt is 5 min walk, turning right on the main road. Opposite is a 24 h kiosk with basic items. Of course in a holiday area the prices are higher then in the normal supermarkets, but if you have a car you can drive 15 min. to Paralimni and find a Carefour or other big supermarkets. Recently, a Lidl opened nearby in Protaras.
The best beaches of Cyprus
Protaras has several beaches. The main beaches, the ones that Protaras is famous about having clear blue water and sandy beaches, are in the main Protaras area. Fig Tree Bay is the most famous, but the beach in front of the hotels Sunrise and Costandinos the Great are our personal favourite. In that area you also find also most restaurants. These beaches are about 15 min walk from the villa. Then there are a number of smaller bays with beaches. They are nice too but usually have a few more rocks. Pernera has one of these bays, called Kalamies. This is actually the closest beach to Villa Cycas, about 10 min. walk.
Restaurants, pubs and bars
There are many restaurants nearby and of course there are many more if you travel a bit further. Turning on the main road left is Elias Tavern, very nice local food, also for take- away. On the main road turning right, you find within walking distance restaurants and pubs that also serve food. Going right on the main road you eventually arrive in the main central Protaras area, with many shops, hotels, restaurants and bars. On the main road turning left and then right the road leads you to Pernera, the second biggest area in Protaras with Hotels, restaurants and bars.

The villa is lovely, surrounded by a fence for privacy. The pool and decking area offer sun and shade, we spent a lot of time in this area. The facilities within the villa are good and the beds were very comfortable. We had a very enjoyable holiday, it is close to the beaches and nightlife and restaurants but far enough away if you want a quiet evening.
I really enjoyed my visit in villa cycas. The villa and pool where nice and clean at my arrival.
Because there is a lot of space around the house you can enjoy the sun and shadow at any time of the day.
You will reach the beach and boulevard in a 8-10 minute walk passed the main road with appartments and restaurants.
The owners placed a new flatscreen tv and new garden furniture wich gave the villa an modern look.
If you want a nice and relax stay at cyprus/protaras i can recomend villa cycas.

We enjoyed very much our stay in Villa Cycas.Thanks Niki and her family.Villa is little older but just because old there are lot of flowers,plants and trees that you conceal and provide privacy.Wooden deck is highlight of villa.It is closer to main road then we expected ,but we feel safety.
The house is spacious,clean and offer everything you need (dishes,games,cleaning...)Beds are excellent,BBQ is in poor condition.
It is very close to the city and the beach,but we recommend Konnos beach (few km of villa)
We highly recommended this villa and Protaras at all.We will back for shore
In the beginning of July 2010 we rented Villa Cycas for one week.
We had a great time here. The house is very well equipped and very practical for a family. The rooms were clean and tidy, and the pool in the garden was almost brand new.
The location with close proximity to beaches and restaurants in central Protaras is perfect.
Coming from the airport in Larnaca, the house was very easy to find. The property manager was very supportive, and the general information about the house was good.
We had a very nice stay at Villa Cycas and have no hestitations in recommending this house to others who intend to visit Cyprus and Protaras.
For our family of six persons the Villa Cycas was just perfect! The house has everything you need. We spent plenty of time in the pool and garden. It is well located and not far from the sea. It took us about 15 minutes to walk to the nearest beach with very good snorkling and swim! Be there early, about 10l if you want a sun bed and umbrella. Good for all ages!
Our favorite restaurant is Super S only a few minutes walk from the Villa Cycas. Nice staff and really good food - try the Moussaka!
Early mornings you can take a walk or go jogging to the hill nearby or by the sea. In the hills we saw some tracks of snakes so be careful.
You can shop food and beverages in the supermarket nearby the house. For fresh bread visit Alfa Zita a little further walk down to Protaras.
We went with a bout named Afrodite Crusies to see the goast town Famagosta with binocolours and for a swim in the blue water with lots of fish. It was a great trip where you have the possibility to see Protaras from the sea.
One night we went to St Elias Church which was very interesting and a nice beautiful walk,
Our family is very pleased with the Villa Cycas and really want to rent it again and we trully recommend it to our friends and relatives.

Many restaurants, pubs and bars are nearby the house but far enough for it to be quiet and private. Beaches can be walked to unless one is in poor physical shape. There are walking trails along the beaches. The Ayios Elias church on top of the hill in Protaras is lit at night and gives a nice view from the house. There are bike paths. Bikes, motorbikes and cars can be rented from very near rental locations. A supermarket is very close by, as well as small kiosks that are open day and night. The nearest larger town is Paralimni, which is about a 5 km drive by car. There is a Water park in nearby Ayia Napa, which is about 10 minutes by car. This holiday town also offers many attractions including a vibrant nightlife. Such locations can be reached by car, taxi or even by bus. There are also day safari trips from Protaras to the mountains of Cyprus.
