About the Owner

Owned by a retired GP and his wife. After spending so many holidays renting privately owned villas we decided to buy our own dream holiday villa so that we can come as often as we can. We particulary enjoy Autumn and Spring in Cyprus, the temperatures in October, November, April and May are just like a hot summers day in the UK! Then when the heat rises from June to the end of September we leave all of our luxuiries to our guests to enjoy.

FYI The photographs on this web site were taken on 5th November 2010.....blue skies, a light breeze and a perfect view of the sunset!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at ’The Palms’ for our Anniversary. It was our 1st time staying in a villa, we usually stay in boutique hotels as we like a bit of peace and quiet but decided to have a change this year and I’m extremely glad we did! Larnaca is only 15-20 mins drive away and there are several supermarkets and shops within 5 mins drive. All in all we very much enjoyed ourselves, thanks to Angela for making everything so painless, why aren’t all holidays like that!? Simon & Fiona, Stevenage.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Palms. The welcome from Angela is much appreciated. The villa itself is beautiful and superbly presented, very clean and every thought has gone into the equipment provided. We would recommend it to anyone. Colin A (May 2011)

A beautiful villa, spacious and clean in a relaxing and scenic setting and an excellent base to visit all other areas of the island. Angela was very welcoming and friendly and provided excellent information – Thanks you from the Fergusons Oct 2011

PEACE & TRANQUILITY

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fantastic 2 week holiday at The Palms Villa in Alethriko. The Villa was everything we expected and more. It was spotlessly clean and was a real home from home. It was well equipped with everything you need for a self catering holiday. The pool area is lovely and is a sun trap for the majority of the day and the covered area provides some welcome shade.

There is a lovely bakers in the village, the cakes are delicious as well as a very good take away (Pizza's, Kebab's etc) along with 2 Taverna's. A car is essential as the nearest supermarkets are 5/10 minutes away. The bustling city of Larnaca is easily reached by car approx 15/20 minutes away. Angela the Villa Manager is a lovely lady, nothing was too much trouble for her always on hand to help out if needed but never intrusive. We now have a new friend in Cyprus who we are looking forward to seeing again next year. All in all we had a super holiday at the Palms and we will be back.

Palms villa, Alethrico.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday at the Palms Villa. The property is very modern and has a beautiful pool which is where we spent most of the time!

Inside has everything you could wish for!

A car is a must really as it's located in a village and is a pleasant rural location.

We loved it here and when we return to Cyprus, we will rent this Villa again!

Angela, The property manager is wonderful. Informed us of local restaurants, places to visit etc, Thank you!!!

Great Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had two villas including this one. Both are clean & tidy and very modern.

Angela has been so helpful and very easy to make contact with. Great Villa for a family but would advise having a car to use as its away from the main attractions of Larnaca and the surroundings.

Chillaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

"The Palms" is certainly a home from home; for those who prefer the domestic pleasures of self catering, the villa offers every opportunity to look after your guests - well equipped, if you feel peckish you have no excuse not to whip up something and enjoy with a very cold beer beside the pool.

The villa sits in probably one of the best sites in a small new development on the outskirts of Alethreko village (a slow 10 minute walk away, or 3 minute drive). The views from every room put you at ease in the beautiful Cypriot landscape, nestling in a valley. All rooms have either blackout or vertical blinds, providing shade and privacy but the view of Stavrovouni Monastery from the rear of the villa is serene and guards the tranquility of this area. If you have never visited the Monastery, you must.

For the energetic there are plenty of hill walks around the area with breathtaking views. For the more adventurous Alethreko sits on the B5 just off the main A5 (joining the A3 from Agia Napa to just outside Larnaca airport) running south through Limssol to Pafos. This makes transfer to the villa only a short 20 minute drive from Larnaca International and transit to Pafos roughly 90 minutes; the location is therefore well catered for in its proximity to the main roads across the island. Access to the Troodos Mountains is easy, but for those looking for that chill out vacation, the villa offers that too.

With the B5 a minute away, the local beaches (Larnaca, Makenzi, Kiti, Faros (to name a few)) are within a 20 minute drive at most; for the more sporting the kite surfing school is around a 15 minute drive away.

Cyprus is becoming a second home to me now, but I do not exaggerate this experience. Alethreko village boasts a bakery (highly recommended!) and several taverna; we dined a few times at "To Filotimo" which hosted us exceptionally well, but again Tersefanou, Kiti, Perivolia and Larnaca are within easy reach by car for a night out. Basic shopping is easily obtained in the village or nearby Ankleisides or indeed in the Carrefor supermarket close to Meneou. However, Alethreko retains all the charm of a cypriot village as do the several other villages around the general area.

The villa is well managed by HomePride Services, who presented the villa in a clean and very acceptable manner.

Thank you for an enjoyable experience. Highly recommended.

Relaxing Holiday at The Palms

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Palms for a week, but wished we had longer! The villa is spacious & maintained to a very high standard, & the pool area gets the sun all day! Angela (villa manager) was extremely helpful & gave lots of information about things to do & recommended restaurants. We went to local taverna on first night ( Kokas), due to late arrival,- The food was excellent, so it's worth a visit. Villa is ideal base for visiting other resorts & places of interest. Supermarkets only 15 min drive away & fish counter amazing! The local bakery is a must aswell....Delicious breads, cakes ,& pastries!

We had an early evening flight on our departure & as there was nobody arriving the same day, Angela kindly agreed for us to stay on at the villa, so we could leave at a time convenient to us :-)

Would highly recommend this villa to friends & family, & hope to return in the future.

Location

From the Owner

We love Alethriko because the villagers and in fact all Cypriots are so friendly and hospitable. This is combination with the peaceful setting with glorious views are the main things we love about our dream villa and it's location.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Larnaca at 10 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Kiti at 8 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Village Taverna at 1 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Mazotos at 8 Kilometres Car: necessary

Special interest holidays:

Nearby attractions include:- Just 5 minutes drive away is the recently opened Olympic standard shooting range in Klavdia, (hosts to the European Championship Shotgun event which is run by the European Shooting Confederation), Lefkara, a traditional lace making village, Mazatos Animal Park, Ten Pin Bowling, Cinema and Go karting........something for every body.

Coast/Beach:

Larnaca town has several sandy beaches with sun beds, umbrellas, water sports, scuba diving, snack bars and restaurants. Other quiet beaches which are ideal for a picnic are 10 mins drive and the famous golden sands of Ayia Napa and Protaras are 40-50 mins drive. A great central location for exploring.

Travel:

15km to Larnaca International Airport (15 minutes drive). 1 hour 15 minutes drive to Paphos International Airport.

We would like to advise our guests that we consider car hire to be essential - the good news is that in Cyprus they also drive on the left! (We advise our guests to book their car hire from the UK because it is much more expensive if you book it in Cyprus.)

Distances:

The beauty of Alethriko is that while the village is so tranquil and idyllic, it is only a 2 minute drive to the main motorway and centrally placed on the island so anyone wanting to explore the many things Cyprus has to offer can do so with ease. Larnaca 15 mins, Larnaca Airport 15 mins, Nicosia 40 mins, Limassol 25 mins, Ayia Napa 40 mins, Paphos 1 hr 15 minutes, Troodos Mountains 1 hour.

Further Details:

Larnaca is a very cosmopolitan town offering everything you need for a fantastic holiday. It is often unappreciated by those who don’t know any better, who think it is merely home for the islands' main International Airport. Larnaca boasts a beautiful promenade lined with palm trees and pavement cafes, a marina full of multi-million pound yachts and boats, boat trips, world-wide cuisine, great shopping (Zara and Mango are here!), sandy beaches, water sports, good nightlife, history, culture and tradition. In addition to all of the things Larnaca its self has to offer it is perfectly placed on the island making it an ideal base from which to explore the rest of the island.

"The Palms" is 1km from the centre of Alethriko village and just a short walk to the nearest taverna-12 EUR for a traditional Meze (dips, grilled halloumi cheese, mix of grilled meats, salad, potatoes and fruit). Lots of other tavernas within 15 minutes' drive to nearby villages or a 15 minute drive can take you down the coast to Zygi or Makenzie for a fabulous fish meze.You are spoilt for choice and certainly won't go hungry!

There is a good supermarket in the village, and other larger ones 10 minutes' drive away in the next village. Mega supermarkets like Carrefour 15 minutes' drive away in Larnaca.

To enable you to start your holiday from the minute you arrive, a grocery welcome pack is available by arrangement. List the items of your choice i.e. water, milk, bread, butter, cereal, fruit, eggs, fruit juice, tea, coffee, beer, wine etc. and they will be in the villa waiting for you. Your holiday starts from the minute you arrive!

Our property manager, (Angela), who is English and lives nearby will meet you at the villa on your arrival to welcome you and to hand over keys and show you around the villa. Should you require any assistance/advice during your stay Angela will be more than happy to help. Maps and guide books are provided in the villa.
