About the property

Villa in Alethriko , Larnaca, Cyprus - A Typical Peaceful Cypriot Village Situated In A Valley Surrounded By Pine Trees

Mainsail villa is fully air-conditioned; every room has patio doors so the whole villa has a light airy feel and virtually every window has a mountain view. For, while a large family (or two!) can all feel at home in the villa without getting under each other's feet, a couple could equally stay in Mainsail Villa without it starting to feel empty or uninviting. The large lounge has plenty of comfortable seating and Wi-Fi, and the separate kitchen/dining room offers peaceful dining away from the TV, with a patio door opening to the pool and terrace. All bedrooms have lovely curtains with black out lining for guests comfort, we also provide a hair dryer, curling tongs and straighteners for guests use.

About Barbara McCumiskey

I live in England and have been successfully running a luxury holiday homes business at Wells Next Sea, North Norfolk since 2008.

I have also drawn on these experiences to make Mainsail Villa in Cyprus a perfect holiday home.

Barbara McCumiskey purchased this villa in 2010

Why Barbara McCumiskey chose Larnaca region

Altheriko has everything that you would wish for a peaceful and relaxing holiday, with beautiful mountain views. It is centrally located to explore the whole island, but only a short drive away to the bustling town of Larnaca. Once we leave Larnaca airport we can be swimming in our pool in 15 minutes, so it is perfect for a long weekend as well as longer holidays.

What makes this villa unique

Mainsail villa is on the beginning of a small select development it has lots of outdoor space and lovely views; it is a very large light and spacious villa, large enough for 8 or cosy enough for 2. Every balcony has a view either of the mountains or the pool.

Guestbook comments from the owner

On Friday we returned from our fantastic vacation in your lovely villa! Everything was perfect - the rooms, the interior, the village - we really loved it! Although we did not intend to cook in the beginning, we loved the BBQ !! It is such a good place for excursions to Larnaca, Nicosia, Agia Napa, The Trodoos mountains.to Paphos and a lot of the interesting cultural places of the island. We really enjoyed our holiday and would like to give our positive impressions to further guests .Alethriko is really a perfect place for excursions to the north, east and west, for walking, beach and city-trips!!

Anne & 3 girlfriends March 2012.

""Just a quick note to say what a lovely holiday we had, the villa is great, everything you said it would be, truly a home from home. Angela thank you for your assistance whilst in Alethriko. I will be recommending the villa to all. With kind regards, Andee"

mainsail villa

  • 5 of 5

fantastic villa in a great location only 15 mins from airport directions from owners really easy to follow

Arrived about 9pm and the shopping was already done for us and put away in the fridge (great Touch)

Six of us stayed in the villa which slleps eight and it was very spacious , exceptonally clean and eveything you needed for a great holiday was thought of and provided

There are two great tavernas about 5 to 10 mins walk from the villa where evening meals were fantastic and very reasonably priced there is also a supermarket a small shop and a lovely bakery all within walking distance.

We had hired a car and it was easy to travel around, Larnaka only about 15 mins , Limmasol Approx 30 mins and Aiya Napa about 40 mins by car all worth a visit

We all had a lovely time and wouldnt hesitate to book this villa again

Highly recommend this beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

Fantastiic villa. Excellently maintained and well equipped. Peaceful location, lovely views just a short drive from the airport and the beach. Nice walks to shops and the village. Plenty of room for our party of six adults, we even had s spare bedroom. You need a car to make the most of your stay but with plenty of parking available this isn't a problem. To summarise the owners have thought of everything, we could not fault our stay in any way.

Relaxing Cyprus break !

  • 4 of 5

I have stayed in Cyprus many times and decided to try a quiet village style break. The Villa was a short drive from the Airport at Larnaca which was a bonus but the Villa itself was Awesome.

Great Pool for my boys to play in and a very modern Villa with all mod cons.

Not too fussed about all the bright flowers and stuff but my wife seemed to think they were great !

Got a car from GoRentaCar which we used to visit limasol and Paralimni.

Anyway, great villa, very clean and thanks to Angela for cleaning up our mess after a tavern night out in Larnaca !!!

Will definitely book again.
