We wanted to try a villa away from the tourist areas and also with plenty of privacy, however, hiring the this villa was a totally different experience! The villa is located about a 5 minute drive from Protaras, sitting in a fairly large plot of land on a hill overlooking the Famagusta Bay, and the surrounding countryside.
The view towards Famagusta is ‘panoramic’ to say the least!! There is also a great view west towards Larnaca and the coast on the south side of the island. The facilities offered in the villa are second to none, and way above what you would expect in the family villas that are on offer nearer the coast. A large private swimming pool, up to 2M in depth, with surrounding sunbed areas on 3 sides, covered terraced areas surround the villa itself to offer comfortable shaded seating, whilst there is a private heated spa pool in the garden area. The ‘L’ shaped villa contains a spacious lounge/dining room, and a fully fitted open plan kitchen on the ground floor. A basement room provides a fantastic array of gym equipment as well as a home cinema area with surround sound entertainment, and comfortable modular sofa seating. The upper floor contains 3 good sized bedrooms, one main en-suite with shower/toilet; the second bedroom being a double and the third a twin, both well sized to offer great comfort to the occupants. There is also a large family bathroom on the upper floor. The main and second bedrooms open out onto a shared balcony surrounding two sides of the building. The villa is air conditioned, however the ground floor rooms are built with sliding UPVC doors along two sides onto the covered terrace, which will offer a wonderful cool breeze throughout.
This is a first class villa offering a private paradise, kids can be entertained all day around the pool, or in the basement home cinema; teenage kids will love the gym! This villa property is totally surrounded in a large plot of land with mature garden, to offer privacy throughout; barbeque facilities are available from a gas unit on the terraces and a coal burning unit in the pool area.
We found this property was an excellent choice and would recommend it to anyone, especially families who want to spend most of the day around a swimming pool in the privacy of their own villa. Take it from us, we loved it, in fact I did not want to leave at the end of the holiday, a first for me! We look forward to returning for another holiday next year!
