About Fran Shackell

We bought the villa just over 10 years ago from new and have enjoyed holidays with family and friends ever since.

With a young family of our own the villa is well equipped for children and it's set in the ideal location to explore family beaches and enjoy restaurants, as well as the nearby waterpark 'WaterWorld' and the Luna Park fairground in Ayia Napa.

Our children love playing in the pool and we love the privacy!

We have a friend who lives directly in front of the villa so there is always someone to contact if needed.

We hope you enjoy our villa!

Fran Shackell purchased this villa in 2003

Guestbook comments from the manager

The villa was excellent, great location for sea/beach/shops and local bars. The Villa and pool were lovely and clean. The location is just right for visiting many locations of interest. We have re booked already for next year. I would certainly recommend this as a holiday location Can't wait to return!

We have just come back from a 2 week stay at this villa. What can i say?? What a lovely place, there was everything you needed here. The pool was lovely and clean thanks to the lady next door who was so helpful and happy, she came round and made sure it was cleaned and also took our sheets and towels, She was a star!! I would recommend this villa to anyone. There was also a restaurant/bar walking distance from the villa which served lovely food and a good cold bear, the staff there were lovely too. We didn't want to come home!! Thank you very much. :)

We come back again & again!

  • 4 of 5

We've stayed in this villa at least 6 times, so that says it all. It's extremely clean, with a lovely, well maintained private pool and all the amenities you need. Its a very short walk to a pretty bay leading to a fantastic sea view walk - and you can pop in the local bar/restaurant on the way back. The villa is just a short drive to Ayia Napa with its massive choice of restaurants, bars and nightlife - but far enough away to enjoy a relaxing quiet holiday.. We'll be back!

5 stars again this is our 3rd time

  • 5 of 5

With the addition of WiFi and the upgrade of tv channels this must be the best of our 3 stays. The villa has everything and with the local shop and bars within walking distance it makes for the perfect holiday. The pool is fantastic and the villa is so clean. We have already re booked for next year. We cannot recommend it enough it is perfect and we look forward to returning.

Great villa, great location, much appreciated.

  • 5 of 5

The villa is beautifully presented in the village of Ayia Thekla, was very clean and had everything we needed for a week in Cyprus. We had no problems finding the villa after a short 40 minute journey from Larnaka airport. Our arrival was very late in the evening, so we welcomed the fact that there was tea, coffee milk and bread along with a lovely bottle to get our holiday started. We had no problems finding the local shops, restaurants in Ayia Thekla along with a lovely clean sandy beach front just a short walk from the villa.

The villa itself was enough to keep the kids entertained, and they spent hours in the large pool which was wonderfully maintained. The bar-b-que and pizza oven round the back was also a lovely feature that I wish I had used more of. The living areas were spacious with plenty of storage, and had new mattresses fitted. The location was particularly perfect for us as the villa is set back from the main road in a quiet villiage.It was only a five minute drive into Ayia Napa, or twenty minutes to Protaras and Fig Tree bay.

We really want to return to Frans Villa and will hopefully be looking at dates next year.
