NEW VIDEO of the Villa now available http://vimeo.com/116883714
Ideal relaxing beach holiday location. The villa is approximately halfway down the beach road which joins one of the best regarded beaches in the area (Fireman's Bay) to the center of Kapparis; so 250m to the left is the beach, 250m to the right are a good selection of 10+ restaurants, cafes and bars. A local supermarket open 8am to 8pm is located at the top of the road, 5 mins walk, perfect for everyday items, food, beer/wine, toiletries. Kapparis is a quieter, family friendly area popular with locals and ex-pats hence is open all year round. Easy flat 10-15 mins walk to a local bus stop which runs every 20-30 mins along the coast to the larger, more touristy resort towns of Pernera, Protaras and Ayia Napa which are 5min, 10min and 15-20min respectively and offer an increasingly large variety of entertainment during the day and late into the night. Last bus back 3am. Airport transfers can be arranged with a local family company hence a car not necessary, although car hire for all/some of your stay with delivery to the villa/airport possible from the same company. Free Wi-Fi, 2 separate living areas on 2 separate floors each with Sat TV, DVD.
The villa is also suitable for two families wanting to share as 3 bedrooms (one double with private en-suite and two twin-bed rooms sharing a bathroom) are on the top (3rd) floor, with a fully-equipped open plan kitchen/dining/living room and additional bathroom on the middle (2nd) floor. On this level a full size balcony overlooks the pool area and has views to the sea. The balcony is gated either end so children can play under supervision having no access to pool area. At pool (1st) level, included in the price, are another basic poolside kitchen with 2 fridges, kettle, microwave, sink etc. Another 2 bedrooms, a bathroom and shower room with 2nd large living room/dining area seating 6 internally. This pool level accommodation is great for everyone to use during the day and nights around the pool and has a large pergola with 2 large outside dining tables and outside seating for 12. As this pool level is accessed by the external staircase from the middle floor it can also double as a self-contained apartment for a family of 4-6 or even to keep noisy teenagers separate!

The villa has 3 floors. The top floor can sleep a family of 6 in three bedrooms with 2 bathrooms. The middle floor has an open-plan kitchen/living/dining area with separate bathroom/WC. The lower pool level doubles as a self contained apartment (as not connected internally to the rest of the villa) and normally sleeps 4 people in 2 separate bedrooms partitioned off to the rear of the living area. Each of these bedrooms has 2 single beds and fitted wardrobes. In the living area there is also a double sofa bed for 1 or 2 smaller children if needed hence a max sleeping capacity of 5/6 on the lower level. It has it's own basic pool-side kitchen and a shower/wet room, WC, TV, DVD
One travel cot and high chair already in the villa for guest use. The local British couple who look after the villa for me can arrange for the hire of extra cots(£25 per week),high chairs (£15 per week)and camp/z-beds if needed (£25 per week). Payment would be to them directly when at the villa
Private pool 8m x 4m is 3ft in shallow end and 6ft in deep end (the deep end has sloping sides for safety).

Under the stairs is a large charcoal barbecue. There are 2 large outside dining tables (in addition to the ones inside) with seating for 10 under a pergola which gives a permanent shaded area to dine or sit. The whole of the pool and garden area has outside lighting so you can sit and enjoy a drink and the Cypriot weather after dark. To the front is a secure gated driveway for parking. The whole of the perimeter of the property has 8ft fencing giving extra privacy whilst providing a secure containment area for any younger children.

Fireman's Bay beach is just 5 mins stroll (250m) from the villa. It has clean sand and safe swimming. There are loungers for hire and a hot/cold snack, drinks kiosk. Passing through Fireman's Bay is a coastal path along which you will find a number of other coves and beaches within easy walking distance. Malama bay beach has water sports and hotel facilities open to the public. It's a 10 min walk along the coastal path which then passes through Pernera, Protaras and ends in Ayia Napa.
Direct flights to Cyprus are available from a number of UK airports with recent announcements increasing the number of budget airlines now operating flights to Cyprus. Cyprus has two international airports although Larnaca airport, which is 65kms (50 minutes drive) is the closest. The other airport at Paphos is two hours drive away but still very accessible. Hiring a car is not essential as there are amenities within easy walking distance of the villa and local buses to Protaras and Paralimni.
The central area of Kapparis offers a good selection of bars and/or restaurants and is literally just around the corner from the villa approx 5 mins stroll (not misleading holiday brochure Olympic sprint 5 mins) Same 'real' 5 mins walk to the beach at the end of the road. Paralimni is 2 kms inland with historic squares and churches and shops. Protaras is a lively town, both day and night, 5-10 mins bus/drive/taxi. Ayia Napa and the large water park are approx 15-20 minute drive/taxi/bus ride.
The Famagusta District has much to offer holiday makers as it encompasses Kapparis, Paralimni, Protaras, Cape Greco (nature conservation area) and Ayia Napa. Kapparis is a quieter, family orientated resort, yet has a good choice of restaurants and bars for those nights that you want to stay close to the villa. Every one of the restaurants/bars in Kapparis is within an easy 10 min walk of the villa. At the top of the road is a traditional Cypriot restaurant (Falliros) further along the high street other restaurants include a 'Pizza Express' style Italian (Just Italian), a traditional Cypriot kebab/charcoal grill restaurant/take away (Magazaki), a Chinese restaurant (China House), Tony's Cyprus Tavern , Karas Fish Taverna and the Pig & Whistle Pub. There are another 4 or 5 bar/restaurants which serve meals day and night. 90% of the amenities are open all year round, useful outside traditional peak season when much of the tourist orientated resorts such as Protaras and Ayia Napa is closed.
Airport transfers can be arranged to and from the villa if required and hiring a car from the airport, or even in Kapparis itself, is easy. The Cypriots drive on the left and all road signs are in English. Hence the villa is ideally located for those who want to escape and relax, maybe never leaving Kapparis, yet it is close enough to larger resorts to benefit from all that they have to offer should you want something more lively to visit. The long white sandy beaches at Protaras, including the famous Fig Tree Bay, are just 5-10 minutes away by car/bus/taxi. Protaras is a popular resort offering a wide choice of restaurants and bars, family entertainment options, including mini-golf, a sea aquarium. Evening entertainment at the popular Eden Square is available long into the night. Ayia Napa ,15-20 minute drive/taxi/bus, offers a wide range of options on a larger and even livelier scale, including the famous Nissi Beach and Water World, one of the largest water parks in Europe
