About Marie Orme

I live in Derbyshire with my husband, Gary, 3 young children and our pet Labradoodle.

Marie Orme purchased this villa in 2005

Why Marie Orme chose Sotira

A few years ago, having enjoyed a fantastic holiday in Cyprus, we decided to buy a property there. Since then, we have spent many happy family holidays in the country and have made lots of friends there.

We love Ayia Thekla because of the amazing contrasts in the area. Whilst you are only 5km from central Ayia Napa with its numerous bars and restaurants, you are also only a stone’s throw from the “real” Cyprus and small rural villages. The Troodos mountains are less than an hour away, and Larnaca airport approximately 35 minutes away.

What makes this villa unique

The property is situated a 5 minute walk from a small beach, perfect for snorkelling, and a 10 minute walk from the larger Ayia Thekla beach which offers a range of water sports.

A local supermarket and Zafiri’s restaurant/bar, with Sky TV and free wireless wi-fi, is only a 2 minute drive away.

Waterworld, the island’s best waterpark, is a 3 minute drive and the famous Nissi beach only 5 minutes.

Holiday 20th to 30th September 2017

  • 4 of 5

This the first time to write a review about a holiday, and I have to say that as a family we had a lovely stay at the villa. As the weather was in the 30's throughout our stay the pool was enjoyed by the whole family. The villa was situated in a quiet residential area, but not too far away from local amenities. There was a frequent public bus service and a bus stop 5 minutes away, however we hired cars which suited us. The villa was well equipped with everything you could possibly need. We enjoyed several barbecues which lets face it, we haven't been able to do at home!!!!

This villa comes with a strong recommendation from us. We had a fab stay.

Clean, spacious villa, with an excellent pool for young kids.

  • 5 of 5

I have just returned from visiting the villa with my young family.

The villa is a great size, clean, and had air conditioning throughout. The is a large pool for the kids, balcony for sitting at nights, and plenty of outside space for dining/BBQ.

We were attending a family wedding in nearby Nissi Beach. So, the villa was ideally positioned to be nearby the main town of Nissi Beach/Ayia Napa (5-10 mins by car/bus), but also remains just far enough out to enjoy a peaceful family holiday.

The owner Marie was very helpful throughout. We hired cars and the villa was very straightforward to find with Marie's directions, parking was easy as there was lots of space around the villa.

Overall, we had an excellent time in Cyprus, and would highly recommend this villa to others.

The perfect family villa

  • 5 of 5

When we pulled up to the villa and I was fiddling with the key safe my two year old son was taken aback by the beautiful garden of the villa and promptly started tearing him clothes off practically salivating at the sight of all the pool toys piled up. We abandoned getting the key and just opened our suitcase right there on the porch to get our swim stuff and we jumped right in. Once our dip was satisfied we endeavoured to enter the villa and was so shocked that it was as lovely as the pics implied. Our son waltzed straight over to a large basket on the living room and again it was full of toys. Absolutely perfect. There was a large box of box and an equally large box of Dvd's. Needless to say we remained entertained. We found there were even more pool toys in a container in the garden. The villa itself was modern and clean. Having a downstairs shower as well as upstairs was extremely handy. Not to mention an outdoor shower by the pool. There was lots of space in the rooms and there was always hot water for baths etc. Many villas in Cyprus you can't flush your toilet paper which is awkward for us Brits but in this one you can. The location is close to a supermarket and some restaurants an absolutely idyllic beach and a five minute drive into Agia Napa which was surprisingly family friendly will a lot of restaurants boasting a playground so you can actually eat your dinner in peace. We asked if they could stock the fridge Witt a few essentials which was done without a problem and there when we arrived which saved toddler drama. The lady who cleans the villa Wendy was really lovely and visited on the second day to see we were getting on alright and left her number. After a couple of days we discovered a small leak in the downstairs loo and we text Wendy- she sent a handyman out and he fixed it immediately. We couldn't have asked for more it was great and we intend to return as well as having recommended it to family and friends. The well maintained grounds and villa is just as in the pics and more.

Well presented villa quiet location car needed

  • 5 of 5

Owners gave excellent directions from Larnaca Airport which in the dark were very reassuring. THe Cyprus lady who maintains the Villa had left a welcome light on for us.

BEdrooms good sizes, well appointed and extras such as lamps and throws make it a home for the week rather than an empty base to sleep.

There were lots of extras, hairdryer, iron, DVD player and DVD's (variety to suit adults, families and kids). selection of books to read by the pool and some card games and a basic toy selection for younger children.

The kitchen had a handful of kitchen basics such as dishwasher tablets and stockcubes which did help limit your supermarket shop..... and added to the oddments when we left.

THe washing machine was a godsend.

The villa is less than 4 mins drive to the aqua park, 2 min drive to the nearest shop where you can buy the big water bottle to fit the water cooling tower at the villa (supercheap). Ayia Napa is about 6-7 mins by car to centre. 45-60 to larnaca Airport depending on confidence. Camel park is a good day out for younger kids.

OWners answered questions before we left and were happy to help with queries about car hire etc.

I would not hesitate to rent the villa again. thank You Gary & Marie

5 minute walk to nearest beach (literally straight across the road from the property), which is ideal for snorkelling. 10 minute coastal walk to larger beach, particularly suitable for families or those interested in water sports. Neither beach gets crowded, even in high season.


Larnaca airport 35 minutes drive.

Paphos airport 90 minutes drive.


Fishing village of Potamos less than 2 km away with local fish restaurants. Ayia Napa 5km away with huge range of attractions. Waterworld, the island’s biggest waterpark is 2 km away. Go-kart track adjacent to waterpark.

Further Details:

2 minute drive to local supermarket and Zafiri’s restaurant/bar with Sky TV and free wireless wi-fi.

Several large supermarkets and various banks in Ayia Napa.
