|Minimum Stay||4 nights|
The villa is located in the typical Cypriot village of Anafotia, which is only a short drive away from the main city centre of Larnaca. All amenities can be found in Anafotia or the neighbouring village of Anglisides, which has amongst others shops, two large supermarkets, bakery, butcher, and ATMs. The villa is an ideal base to explore all of the main attractions in Cyprus including Nicosia, Limassol, Ayia Napa, the water park and the Troodos mountains. Only 10 minutes away is the nearest beach in the village of Mazatos which also has some excellent restaurants on the beach front and the ever popular Camel Park!
Lots of things to do: Close by there is Mazatos Camel park, which is always a fun day out for the children. Horse riding lessons can also be taken here. Dreamland park and Water world park are also popular, as well as the many blue flag family friendly beaches along the coast. There are many historic sites, such as the Stavravouni monastery which are worth visiting.
Recommendations for car hire can be given.
Skiing and Golf: Cyprus the wonderful island of contrasts! You can ski in the morning and sunbath in the afternoon! Skiing is available during the winter months in the Troodos mountains where you can ski on Mount Olympus. There are 5 slopes with 4 lifts with skiing available for beginners to advance skiers.
Golfing is also available throughout the year. A new golf course is currently being built in Tersefanou which is only a short drive away, but the closest one for now is Vikla Village in Limassol.
This villa is so well equipped, it really is like home from home! I don't think I've ever stayed anywhere where I've had a full barbecue, picnic set, full cooking equipment and utensils and boxes of pool toys too. Every time I opened a cupboard in the kitchen I found more stuff! We didn't eat in at the villa apart from breakfasts but we'd have had no issues cooking if that was the case. We did have some issues with ants despite cleaning up carefully after eating, but bought ant spray from the supermarket and this seemed to help.
It was lovely to have a bathroom each - the showers in the downstairs and twin room are very powerful (think needles on skin!)! We had a week in October when the season is winding down but still got great weather, although the pool doesn't really heat up due to the sun being lower through the day: it meant it wasn't fully useable as there's no heating; which was a shame.
Air con was invaluable to us non locals where 30°C is still too hot, and the bonus of WiFi and internet TV was a nice addition.
Natasha (UK) and Barry (Cyprus) were lovely and helpful and responded promptly to any messages.
Anafotia is a small village but it's a great location: within an hour of Limassol and Nicosia, and half an hour to Larnaca. The local taverna is well worth a visit and once we got our bearings in daylight we had a great time exploring the local villages and further afield.
The overall review score is 4 stars from us as we noticed a few cleaning/maintenance issues which perhaps should have been sorted before our arrival. I have contacted Natasha about these as I think they detracted from the presentation of the villa for us, although I appreciate that we arrived at the end of the busy season. It's a real shame that other guests appear to have not treated the villa as they would their own home.
Great villa. Everthing corresponds to the description. Bedrooms, Livingroom and bathrooms are clean and well equipped.
Each room has a conditioner. Swimming pool is good for relaxing and to end a day on a beach.
We have been in the house: 4 adults and 3 children.
Nearby the house there are supermarket and one restaurant (Cafe Aman: very good )
The house is really made to enjoy your holidays, very well equipped, the swimming pool is very nice. It is very well located not far from the sea and near the little village of Anafotida typically Chypriot. It's an ideal place from where you can visit east Cyprus.
Highly recommended, shopping facilities available available a short walk away, also bus to Larnaca. Car recommended though for travelling to Beaches. Pool excellent, rooms of high quality. Cooking and BBQ facilities all there.
Set in a quiet area, this villa is great for a family holiday. A good sized pool (was great for us and our teenage daughter). The villa is well equipped. The owner (in the UK) and Barry (who looks after the Villa in Cyprus) are both great with communication and helping with any questions / queries you have.
We felt safe in the local area and the locals were all very friendly and helpful too.
Just up the road is a great restaurant called Cafe Aman - 110% recommend eating there!
Shops / supermarket are a short drive away and Larnaca is a 20 minute easy drive too. Its a great central location to go exploring (a car is essential).
Great value for money we thought - highly recommended!
We really enjoyed our stay in this villa. It was clean, bright and very well-equipped, plus it was exactly how it appeared in the photos. The area is quiet, with the local village - Anafotida - having a great restaurant (Cafe Aman) but not much else. A car is therefore essential. Nearby are supermarkets, beaches, restaurants all within about a 10 minute drive and bigger towns such as Larnaca are at most 20 minutes away. We can thoroughly recommend a Friday night at the taverna in Tersefanou (about 15 minutes drive away) where there is Cypriot music, dancing and more food than you know what to do with! Barry who maintains the villa was really good at suggesting places to eat and beaches to visit. The communication from both the owner and Barry was excellent. I would definitely recommend this villa to anyone wanting a quiet holiday in a lovely place.
