Beautiful very spacious villa, well equipped for a very enjoyable family holiday.

  • 5 of 5

This is a very beautiful spacious and very clean villa. There was 5 of us staying and there was so much space. Aircon in every room was a real winner. It was August when we went and the weather was scorching. The pool was very clean. There was somebody visiting every 2-3 days cleaning it professionally. The kitchen was very well equipped, everything was good quality. The managers called around first thing in the morning after we had arrived to check all was ok. Nearest beach is only a few minutes walk and is lovely, very safe. We hired a car and went to a few other beaches nearby which were stunning. Fig Tree Bay and Sunrise Beach, and Nissi Beach are most definitely worth a visit. Plenty of bars and restaurants within walking distance but the villa is on a private estate so away from any noisy bars, but is literally minutes walking distance. We had a lovely holiday and would have no hesitation in recommending this villa for a holiday. We loved Cyprus as a holiday destination, but without a doubt staying in this lovely villa made our holiday a very pleasurable experience!

Located in the heart of Pernera with shops, bars, restaurants and hire services on your doorstep and just 2 minutes walk from sheltered golden sand beaches. The town has a fishing harbor and an abundance of character. Retreat from heat in the stunning Troodos Mountains - refreshing in the summer has snow-capped in the winter - just under 2 hours away.
