                          Villa Carpe Diem is located on the outskirts of Maroni village, pleasantly situated almost midway between Larnaca and Limassol making it idea for relaxing in the sun and when you are ready, exploring some of the other historic local villages as well as trips further afield. If you love to eat Cypriot fish meze, Zygi with many fish restaurants is just five minutes away. Maroni has a new village taverna, centrally located, it provides good value food in a traditional setting. For those who like to explore, we have a visitor guide with secret locations just waiting to be discovered! Delightful Maroni is an ideal base from which to travel to all the popular tourist destinations. With the beach just five minutes down the road Villa Carpe Diem is a wonderfully quiet place to relax. Unfortunately Cyprus has limited Google mapping so we provide guests with clear written directions, thus far everyone has arrived! GPS mapping co-ordinates provided on request. We look forward to welcoming you.

                          Golf: The nearest golf course is at Secret Valley, just a 20 kilometre drive.

                          Ski: We've yet to try it but there are a couple of ski runs in the Troodos Mountains! When the snow falls they say it is possible to ski in the morning and swim in the afternoon! As much of the 20 kilometre drive is into the mountains might it be a bit much to suggest cycling there? Why not let us know - an article in the local press could be on the cards...

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          About the owner: Hi, I'm Niki and together with my husband Andy, I own Villa Carpe Diem. As an RAF 'brat' I moved about quite a bit with my family when a youngster. Having said that, as the eldest of five children, I had quite a role in their upbringing! I love to travel and when we discovered Cyprus, I really enjoyed the varied landscape and the local hospitality.

                          Why the Owner Chose Kellaki:
                          Villa Carpe Diem is very special. Set just outside the village of Maroni, it was designed by Andy and built by a local builder. Maroni is a wonderful place to use as a base for your holiday. You will get sunshine, you get your own private swimming pool, you get easy access to our local beach, there are tavernas and shops nearby, places to explore and visits that you may like to make. You can keep in touch with the world via our broadband wireless internet connection. When you get here, we hope that you will notice all sorts of little touches that combined make a big difference.
