Property description

Villa Christina is a modern, very spacious and well-equipped 4 bedroom / 3 bathroom air-conditioned villa with its own private pool located at Gemstone Village, Choirokoitia. With beautiful views over open countryside to the coast, it is an exclusive development with on-site facilities including a magnificent communal swimming pool, separate children's pool, convenient pool-side kiosk selling a range of snacks and drinks (seasonal opening), tennis court and children's play area.

With four tastefully furnished large bedrooms (2 with en-suite), immaculate, modern, comfortable furnishings, full air conditioning, unlimited internet access (wireless broadband) and TV with DVD/CD player, Villa Christina is the ideal location for up to 8 people (+ 2 cots).

Apart from the pool-side kiosk, a friendly family restaurant is just a couple of minutes' walk from the villa..............why not try their wonderful selection of tasty Cypriot dishes or their refreshing homemade lemonade? There is also a wide selection of restaurants and bars located nearby either in the historic and beautiful village of Choirokoitia or neighbouring villages.

Around Choirokoitia: The local blue flag Governor's Beach, with its sweeping sandy beaches, hidden coves and wide selection of restaurants, is around 10 minutes drive from Choirokoitia. Alternatively, you might want to try horse riding, fishing, cycling or a trip to see traditional local activities such as olive-pressing. The many local nature trail walks are a wonderful way to enjoy the picturesque views or just wander through the paved streets of Choirokoitia to leave you admiring the characteristic houses of the area. The village of Zygi is also around ten minutes' drive away, and here you will find stunning deep blue sea, the wonderful new marina and the excellent seafood tavernas it is famed for. Agios Minas Monastery and the historic village of Lefkara with its beautiful embroidery and lace-making are also nearby. There really is so much to see and do away from the hustle and bustle of the big resorts!

Limassol, the island's largest seaside resort, boasts a wide range of tavernas, restaurants and shops. It has a Medieval Castle, local galleries, and is famous for its wine production. You may also want to take a cruise from there to the Holy Land, Egypt or even the Greek islands. Just outside of Limassol, you will find Fasouri Watermania, which offers the largest selection of water slides and attractions in Cyprus.

The Troodos mountain range are definitely worth a visit and the stunning Mount Olympus (1,952m) can be reached in around an hour. Hilltop villages full of vineyards and Byzantine churches make this a popular day trip when you need a rest from the beach, so if you want peace and tranquillity, going for long walks, bird-watching or cycling in pine-scented forests this is for you.

How to get there: Charter and scheduled airlines fly frequently into Paphos and Larnaca throughout the year. Both airports offer car rental from the major rental companies and details of local companies can be provided on request.

The new Larnaca International airport is about 25 - 30 min from the villa. Paphos International airport is about 1 h and 20 min. The route from either airport is very straightforward with most of the route being on Cyprus's excellent motorway which stretches from one end of the island to the other. A car is advisable, not least to explore the beauties of the island.

Driving in Cyprus, on the left-hand side, is simple as there is much less traffic and the signs are in English as well as Cypriot. Fuel is relatively cheap at €1.13/litre (= approx £0.90/litre) at April 2016.

Gemstone Village is situated just on the edge of the historical village of Choirokoitia (also spelt Khirokitia), a UNESCO World Heritage site founded 7 Millennium BC. The local village has a traditional Cypriot charm with meandering, pretty streets as well as convenient facilities such as a village shop, post office and bars. A large, new AlphaMega supermarket is situated just 5 minutes' drive away and is open early until late 7 days per week. The village is also very well situated between the three large cities of Cyprus; Nicosia, Larnaca and Limassol, all of which are accessible by car within 25-30 minutes, and nearby beaches. This scenic village is the perfect location for enjoying the best of both worlds, exploring the tourist attractions that Cyprus has to offer, whilst providing a relaxing retreat in a peaceful location. Home to Cyprus' new international airport, Larnaca is less than 30 minutes' drive away and is a bustling coastal resort. It is the third largest town on the island and its palm-tree lined sea front promenade has many cafes and bars and hosts a stunning marina.

Golf: On offer in Cyprus are several challenging, world class golf courses, warm hospitality and practically all year round sunshine. The golf courses on Cyprus are clustered around the popular tourist areas of Paphos and Larnaca, in beautiful valley and hillside locations. These include well-established courses at Aphrodite Hills and Secret Valley.

The Vikla Golf and Country Club was founded in 1992 and is situated near the village of Vikla in Cyprus, between Larnaca and Limassol (J21 of A1 motorway).

Ski: Skiing is available in the Troodos Mountains during the winter season

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

Why the Owner Chose Choirokoitia, Cyprus:
Why did we choose Villa Christina? The location of Villa Christina was a major reason.........situated in the beautiful Cyprus countryside close to such beautiful old villages as Tochni and Lefkara but only 10 minutes' drive from the sea. Being only 30 minutes from Nicosia, Larnaca and Limassol, it's easy to reach these fascinating cities and then to return to the beautiful peace and quiet of Choirokoitia.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Our favourite times at Villa Christina are usually when we can sit in the back garden soaking up the glorious sunshine. Looking across open fields to the coast, we can listen to the birds or watch a herd or goats as they munch the grass. The evening is also mesmerising with the sound of crickets and the amazing sight of thousands of stars in the massive sky
