Atlantis Villa, Sea Views, in Ayia Triada nr Protaras, Pernera. - Set In A Quite Cul-De-Sac Just 4 Minutes Walk To The Beach!
We holidayed in Cyprus for many years, loved it, so decided to buy our dream holiday home in 2005. We try and get over there as much as we can, we always find different things to see and do. We both work full time so its great to have Cyprus to look forward too! Our son was young when bought the villa so we have had some great times at the water parks, beaches, snorkelling, and the obligatory boat trips. It was great not having to go out for dinner every night and just fire up the BBQ. The Cypriots are great with kids, and welcome them into all restaurants, he did very well on the free Ice Cream! Now he is older the Xbox Den and the pool are his favourite domain. He goes into Ayia Napa with his friends, and gets the late bus back so great no late night/ early morning pick ups for us!
Sue purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Sue chose Paralimni
We viewed a number of developments, but we felt that they were just large estates with all the villas looking the same and no individuality, When we saw Atlantis Villa we fell in love with the location, breath taking sea views and great aspect, as it was at the bottom of a private cul-de-sac with just 9 Villas, ours being at the very bottom over looking the sea. It was a family build, Nicos had 4 girls who all needed a house! So he built 9 houses, the girls were given one each and he sold the other 5 to pay for them. The reason why the Villa is larger than a normal holiday villa is they were all built to the same size and specification, as they are permanent homes for the daughters. They are now married and have children. We did get the largest plot and of course the best sea views!
What makes this Villa unique
The views are the best feature, there are sea views from all the rooms, downstairs and upstairs when you look out of the landing window its as if you are on a ship, all you can see is the turquoise Mediterranean! The outside space is large, so there is plenty of sunbathing space, even with all the loungers, sofas, hammock and massive daybed, and outside dining table and chairs it is still not cramped. The living area is very spacious, we did not want to put another bedroom downstairs as we wanted to keep the open plan feel, we often have two families staying at the villa as a group and they all say how nice it is to have their own space The teenagers and kids love the den upstairs they can watch movies or play the Xbox or just chill and not have to put up with the parents! The location is great, there are many bars and restaurants within walking distance. There is a regular bus service that is 1.50 euro if you dont want to drive. There is direct access to the nice sandy shallow beach. This has been designated a a conservation area so great for snorkling and spotting fish and clear blue sea to swim in.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Best equipped Villa we have stayed in
The great experience we had staying at this villa started before we even got there. The information supplied by Sue and Lance was second to none, leaving nothing to chance, like directions from the airport idiot proof, where to shop for groceries, the many different beach options, restaurant recommendations and where to buy fresh fish direct from the boats. The villa itself was extremely well equipped with every consideration to make your stay comfortable, my wife especially liked the idea of extra linen to change beds and not have to take towls with us. The outside area was sizable with more than enough sun beds and seating area in the shade and great size pool, loads of inflatables were there to use with plenty of kids toys and snorkeling equipment. Inside was a massive downstairs area with 3 good size bedrooms with comfortable beds and a den area suitable for young children to sleep in. There was good Aircon in all the upstairs bedrooms. The beaches were lovely, with crystal clear water and very child friendly. You'll find plenty of great restaurants and bars within a 20-30 minute walk.
Amazing Villa Stay
The villa is well located in a quiet residential area at the bottom of a cul de sac, it is close to a number of local amenenties that can be reached on foot, car, bus or taxi. The villa has a comprehensive information booklet with lots of hints and tips to help you have a very enjoyable stay. The villa is very well equipped with everything you might need and more for a chilled out stay. The outside space of the villa is amazing lots of areas for sunbathing, lounging, eating and of course swimming. The pool has amazing colour changing lights which are just mesmerising and hypnotic to watch at night and there are other fairly lights around the swing seat and the pagoda which just gives the villa a lovely ambience. The open uninterrupted views of the sea were great and there is a gate and path which takes you to the coastal path with lovely walks in both directions. We were a group of 6 - 3 mature couples and the villa ticked every box for us, WiFi and satellite tv was good. We recommend the Bakers Arms for the fantastic steak pie and this is within walking distance - turn right at the top of the cul de sac and then right again at the fork in the road. Really good food with very generous portions and both food and drink reasonably priced. We also recommend Mojitos in Pernera for breakfast very very good was just a shame we only found this restaurant at the end of our stay. We also booked a private trip to Famagusta and the ghost town we did this through Andreas, left his details in the information book and this was very good 150 Euros for our group of six. It was for four hours and he tailored the timings and order of what we visited to suit us. All in all we had a fabulous and relaxing time at the villa and we would definitely book again in the future. Many thanks to Sue and Lance who were brilliant at communicating with us before,during and after our stay.
1st timers and 100% perfect experience!
Just after we booked we watched villas from hell! One person explained they had so much contact with owner they had no reason to think they were being scammed! So a wee bit of apprehensive as this was the first time we have ever done a villa!
And got to say WOW !! Not only did the owners Sue and Lance find out info on diving, car hire, transfers for us which was a great help! They lets us stay on a few more hours as they were going out themselves very helpful with baby in tow!
The villa it’s self was very spacious clean and well equipped! Use of beach towels is great less luggage to take!
No shortage of seating outside for our party of 8 plus a baby!
The pool was easy accessible for my mum with the steps rather than just a ladder! Great swimming at night with the lights changing colour great ambience!
Driving in Cyprus is so easy, we hired a car for 3 days as wasn’t sure if we use it! Bus stop up the road the 102 and 101 bus cost €1.50 takes you portaras, ayia Napa or Paralimni the 711 for takes you to larnaca for €1.50 , much cheaper than taxi 😉� cyprusbybus website gives you details on buses very helpful! but don’t use them for airport transfers as I did they didn’t turn up 5 calls later and one hour we finally got a 8 seater to take the party of 9 To the villa! only wished I used one of the companies Sue gave me!
The little beach closest was really nice and clean the larger one to the other side of villa is trinity beach had more facilities for disabled access into water toilets and bar.
only downside was 1 week is too short to fit everything in 😉�
I would recommend this villa to friends and family and if I ever go back to Cyprus would definitely book again! I
