Lovely villa, you definitely need a car as is not within walking distance of any shops, bars, restaurants etc. Problems with the WiFi, but this was sorted out by Nick. Would be useful to have instructions for the heating and hot water. Overall we had a lovely holiday.Read more
For my grandchild, this villa was chosen for the pool is fenced for children safety. This proved most useful. Nearby tavernas were great plus BBQ around the pool for lunch was wonderful. Upstairs balcony offers a brilliant view of the landscape, the countryside and the beach. We would loved to have stayed a little longer but duty calls...Read more
Nice furnished villa with a pool that is naturally being heated by the sun. Looking at the villa itself everything is in place to accommodate the guests, nothing more and nothing less. Our children loved the pool but have also enjoyed the white sandy beach and the other places we have been. What I loved more about the pool is that it is fenced for childrens safety.Read more
Our main concern was our kids and the sleeping arrangement. But we were pleasantly surprised to find a spacious villa that was very clean and tastefully furnished. Our favorite spot was the pool to hang out and laze around; we also enjoyed nights on the town and long walks along the Troodos trail. We would highly recommend this villa to friends and family.Read more
Pure happiness Beautiful Villa and still a great size, great quiet but reasonably central location and well equipped. I have noticed many local villa prices are increasing and this villa was very reasonably priced for its beauty. Great location. Would I stay again? in a heartbeat !!Read more
Spotless on arrival. The cleanest villa we have ever rented. Exceptionally quiet and secluded. Nobody overlooking the pool or villa; exactly what we wanted. Paradise!!!! Thank you.Read more

We think Cyprus is a fabulous place to take a holiday at any time of the year, and that certainly applies in October – and this is why: It’s not far and it’s easy to get to: There are direct flights from all over the UK to Cyprus, which has 3 international airports. The flight time from the UK is only around 4.5 hours; short enough to make the most of your week away.

Thanks to its golden sands, rich history and buzzing nightlife, Cyprus tempts thousands of holidaymakers from far and wide. Ironically though, Cyprus plays victim to its own beauty, as it can often be hard to escape the bustling crowds. Now, don’t do anything too hasty - there’s no need to cross Cyprus off the list! Hotspots like lively Ayia Napa may heave in high season, but if you’re looking to wander off the beaten track a little, then head out of town and take in the ‘real’ Cyprus.

Between wonderful Paphos and popular Ayia Napa, lovely Limassol rarely gets a look in. Which really grates our cheese, because Limassol is a brilliant city, the second largest one actually (not that size matters) and full of things to do and beautiful things to see...
