Comfortable apartment even in the winter months
Our 4 week February stay coincided with Cyprus's 3rd worst winter rainfall in a century! With efficient heaters, Su's apartment was as comfortable on chilly winter evenings as it would be in an air-conditioned summer. The kitchen is very well equipped and the wi-fi connection is excellent. We enjoyed the DVD collection and bought some music CDs from a great shop called Acapella.
Larnaca was busy with tourists but few people visit the museums and archaeological sites. A shame! The intercity bus service is also excellent. It is well worth taking day trips to Nicosia, Limassol and Ayia Napa, where there is now a free sculpture and cactus park with great sea views. There are also buses which go direct to Paphos but it takes almost 3 hours. We stayed 2 nights at Valentino's apartments between the old town and the harbour so that we could see Paphos's many sights at a leisurely pace.
Ideal location in centre of old town .
Lovely town and lovely people. Only a few hundred yards from beach
Great stay owners very welcoming
Great location near all amenities and beach 2mins away apartment has all you need for hour hoilday
Great location, near to local amenities and beach!!
Apartment was clean with all necessary equipment - microwave, washing machine, oven etc,
There was a TV but no English channels but there was plenty of DVD's in the apartment.
Plenty of choice to eat out nearby and a good selection of bars.
Would definitely stay again.
Every thing great very clean and well equipped excellent location
We had a 10 day stay in the apartment and everything was as it says on the web site, the apartment had all the things you needed as advertised, was clean and tidy.
The apartment was in walking distance to the beach, there are many cafe and restaurants,and a super market , around the apartment, and you don't need a car as the bus services are good to get to other parts of Cyprus.
The apartment owner and the manager where most helpful and obliging before and during our stay.
Although we managed it would have been helpful to have wifi in the apartment.
All in all it was a good time.
Dear Fiona and John
Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay - we certainly enjoyed having you as our guests. We agree about the wifi and are considering our options for the future.
Special interest holidays:
Larnaca Salt lake is a short drive away, where you can see the migrating birds in the Spring; in Autumn, the flocks of flamingos, which winter on the lake, make a spectacular sight. There is a pathway from the bottom of the lake to the top where the old viaduct is. Along the way, you can find a hide for bird watching and markers to tell you the plant names. There is also a BBQ area for all to use.
For those interested in archeology, Cyprus is the perfect place: Ancient Kition is in Larnaca itself and the Perides Museum has a good display of artefacts; Choirokoitia, a UNESCO site, is just 19 miles. Kourion, Kolossi and Salamis are all easy day trips. The eleven Byzantine Churches with their painted frescoes in the high Troodos are all UNESCO sites, although you will only manage to see 3-4 in one day as they are in remote, but beautiful, places.
Larnaca beach, with its palm-lined promenade, is within 5 minutes walk away. This safe, sandy beach runs from the Medieval fort to the marina. Bars and restaurants line the road. A short ten minute drive away in either direction are other beaches with sandy beaches with restaurants overlooking the sea.
Larnaca airport is just 10 minutes drive from the apartment. A car is not essential. There is a good bus service to Nicosia, Lemosos, the airport and surrounding villages from the sea front.
Nicosia is 45km, Troodos mountain range is 110km, Limassol is 66 Km and Ayia Napa 41km. Mountain villages on lower slopes of Troodos are thirty minutes drive away and provide a spectacular views and delighful ambience.
On the promenade, you will find restaurants that provide a variety of eating places, from traditional Cypriot food with kelftiko and fish meze, to KFC, TGI'S. MacDonald's, Pizza Hut, and steak restaurants. There are money exchanges, mini-markets, a small indoor market and an excellent deli all within a few minutes walk.
