Tranquility and Total Seclusion
Hello my name is Peter Faulkner. I was born and brought up in the UK ,North London. People tend to have different stories of how or why they have bought or settled in another country or Island from wherever they were born, so this is mine. I left school when I was 16 years old and started working as a Landscape Gardener for a Cypriot man. I worked alongside him for 18 years until his retirement which took him back to Cyprus and I continued my own business in Landscaping. We remained close friends and with my family of 4 children, we went to visit him in Cyprus for our well-earned holidays although we did have holidays in many countries around the world too. As years passed we noticed our choice always seemed to bring us back to Cyprus and eventually decided to buy an apartment in Cyprus in the Paphos district to have our holidays as it was beginning to feel more like home to us for some reason. Then, as years passed again with many visits to various areas of Cyprus and also thinking of my own retirement, decided to buy a Villa on the other end of the Island, in Pyla in the district of Larnaca. The Villa has many fond memories of wonderful times spent here with the children in private as I planted Ficus trees around the rear or the property. Then the years pass again and family grows themselves and go onwards on their own journeys in life. So I decided to create a holiday home for others to use and enjoy and it was to be known as ..... The Ficus Tree Villa ! If you choose to have a well-earned holiday here I am really sure that you will enjoy your stay as much as we did as a family. And who knows where it will bring you in time to come ! With regards, Peter.

We’ve judged and we say ...5Star!
Let’s start with the location- car needed but a really handy location for the airport, for beaches, Larnaca Marina, restaurants, shops and supermarkets- although to be fair we were so at home at the villa we rarely left it! Whilst there is one direct neighbour we hardly heard anything from them at all- and hopefully they didn’t hear from us. The villa had everything you could think of, every kitchen gadget and technology and the level of detail Peter has gone in to was tremendous- even having two WiFi connections to ensure where ever you are inside or outside you have optimum coverage (greatly appreciated by our teenager). Kitchen well equipped, beds comfy, towels lovely- there are also bags made up ready for the beach with towels and mats. Pool and house very clean, Peter visited once during our week to clean the pool and garden and it was great to have a cup of tea with him. To be honest, the villa was spot on, I cannot compliment Peter enough for what he has established and how he cares. We’ve stayed in many villas in Mallorca, Portugal, Cyprus and The Canaries- there is no doubt that this was the most well appointed and had the best host.
Peter’s villa has to be the nicest place i’ve stayed in and i’ve been to a few nice ones. It is certainly a 5 star experience and more. It was very hot when we were there and the ceiling fans inside and outside were a godsend. The air con was great as well but really only needed to use that when we were in our rooms getting ready to go out as the fans were that strong. Peter’s attention to detail was second to none, from the bedding, to the toiletries in every bathroom, to all the matching crockery. He has certainly thought of everything. Outside area!! Well what can i say just wow! loved it, the tables, umbrella etc all had wheels that were easy to move if required, the swing was amazing and was very relaxing and well used by us all and we spent most of our time outside, so much so we had barbecues and ordered takeaways a couple of times rather than go out to eat as we didn’t want to leave the villa. I really could go on and on about how great the villa is but just book and see for yourself.
Peter is one of the nicest people i’ve met and a true gentleman, he couldn’t do enough for us from start to finish and the welcome pack was a real bonus and very appreciated. Thank you Peter for letting us experience your gorgeous villa and it feels like we’ve made a new friend

Unquestionably 5 star
From the moment of booking Peter has been the perfect host and the couple of queries I had were answered within minutes.
My friends and I arrived after a late flight and were met by Peter at the villa. It was evident he took great pride in showing us round and explaining how things worked. A comprehensive welcome pack was a life saver as our flight arrived so late we were unable to shop. Peter’s knowledge of the area helped with tips on where to shop and places worth visiting. Ficus tree villa is a perfect base to enjoy Cyprus and Peter has catered for every need. The outside area of the villa was perfect with great areas for sunbathing and swimming but even better for outdoor relaxing in the evening with barbecue and dining area. We were disappointed the weather wasn’t kind to us so were unable to take full advantage of this. We did managed a few hours of sun on our last day as Peter didn’t hesitate to extend our time at the villa owing to our late return flight.
I would recommend Ficus Tree Villa, unreservedly to anyone for their stay in Cyprus. Thank you Peter.
Dear Glynis, Ann & Samantha, I do thank you for your wonderful review on The Ficus Tree Villa and for your personal comments towards myself too.
Unfortunately April’s weather definitely wasn’t as nice as it usually is on this lovely Island but you definitely managed to view many places to still enjoy yourselves, very adventurous indeed !
Really pleased you had a wonderful experience in Cyprus,
Perfect in every way !
We were met at the villa by Peter, who I have to say is a true gentleman. Everywhere you look has been thought through so meticulously, you have have everything you need and then some! There are an abundance of pool accessories if you take children, there are novels a plenty...the hammock is great for that, chess....films...not going on anymore try it yourself!! What a fabulous relaxing holiday we had. A car would be advised although there are great taxis and bus routes to Larnaca and only a few minutes drive to lovely restaurants. This has to be by far the best villa in Cyprus we have stayed in. Thankyou Peter and you're team for a fabulous time, see you next year! Xx
Excellent!!! A truly five star villa!
It's better than the photos! This villa has everything for everyone whether a relaxing honeymoon or romantic getaway to a full on family holiday. We are a family of 5 with teenage sons who enjoyed the pool the sun and the internet! We found great restaurants too with a local feel as well as enjoying the nightlife in Larnaca itself. The property is well maintain and immaculate and I would recommend staying there to anybody who enjoys a home from home vacation. Thank you Peter for a great stay!
Dear Paul, Thank you so much for your lovely review of my villa. I am so pleased that you and your family enjoyed everything that The Ficus Tree Villa had to offer, from the pool to the internet around the house and garden and even more importantly that you had a fabulous holiday in Cyprus. It was a pleasure to meet you all during your holiday. Best wishes Peter
