Anafotida Villa Rental Photos and Description

Child-friendly: cot bed, high chair, stair gate, pool toys & local caretakers

One of the best-located villas on the development.

'Wonderful holiday! Well-organised, good information & fast support from Tracy & the caretakers in Cyprus. First time in a long time we were sad to be going home.' Keith & family, Aug 2013.

'Lovely villa in peaceful & relaxing surroundings, highly recommended. Organisation was excellent from the directions down to the selection of guidebooks & info at the villa. A fantastic holiday, we'll definitely be back.' Nathan & Laila, June 2013.

Villa Swalletta is a wonderfully furnished 3-bedroom holiday home in 'prime position' on the favoured edge of the popular St Christopher's Village Development. Wth superb views of the beautiful countryside and its rolling hills, valleys, olive trees and orange groves. Sit and relax on the large balcony that sweeps around the back of the villa where you can enjoy a glass of wine watching the sun setting over the mountains in the distance - bliss!

The villa is only 400m-500m from the local supermarket, charming tavernas and bars in the village itself and a short drive to Mazotos or Anglisides where there is a wider selection of shops, supermarket, pharmacy, bars, restaurants and beaches.

Villa Swalletta is a modern 3-bedroom holiday home (sleeps 6-8 as it has an additional sofa-bed in the lounge area). No expense has been spared on the stylish furniture and interiors to make sure you have all the luxuries you need for an enjoyable stay. Each of the 3 Bedrooms at Villa Swalletta has its own en-suite shower room or en-suite bathroom. There is a double bedroom on the ground floor with an en-suite shower room and lots of fitted wardrobe space. The other 2 bedrooms are upstairs. A twin bedroom is located at the front of the property with an en-suite shower room and large fitted wardrobes. The master bedroom looks out over the back towards the hills and countryside and also benefits from a set of fitted wardrobes, an en-suite bathroom and a large balcony. Here you can sit listening to the birds first thing in the morning whilst enjoying your coffee waiting for the rest of the family to surface!

Downstairs is designed to maximise space and openess by incorporating a large, light and airy open-plan living area (lounge/diner) and a modern fully equipped kitchen. There is also a handy additional downstairs cloakroom/WC. As mentioned previously - the 3rd double bedroom is situated here downstairs with an en-suite shower room.

Patio doors lead you out of the open-plan lounge/dining area to the terrace and garden/pool area where you can jump in the pool and cool off from the heat of the Cyprus sun, or sit and relax reading a book on our sun loungers. We have a large dining table and chairs with a parasol for you to enjoy eating breakfast/lunch or dinner al-fresco! Or why not fire up the BBQ and enjoy an evening of burgers and beers!

Here at Villa Swalletta, you will experience the traditional Cyprus. Surrounded by beautiful countryside, olive groves, rolling hills, valleys and traditional Cypriot villages, away from the noisy, hustle and bustle of the busy tourist areas. Here you can truly relax, unwind and escape from the rat-race of every day life back home and enjoy quality time with your children, friends and family in a safe and welcoming environment.! Here you can experience the marvellous views, scenic drives, long walks, bike rides, jogging and the many archaeological sites that Cyprus' 10,000 year old history has to offer.

GETTING THERE

Our unique 30-page information pack gives you links and lots of information on all the best flight companies for you to try. So make sure you open this PDF when you get our response to your enquiry as it has lots of helpful hints and tips in it. We also give you details of the best Car Hire companies and advice about Taxis too.

FLIGHTS

Larnaca is the closest airport.

Most UK airports fly to Cyprus. Larnaca airport is the closest to Villa Swalletta (approx. 15-20 minutes away). You could also fly in to Paphos airport but please be aware that this is further away and would take about 1½ hours to get to the villa by car.

CAR HIRE

There are a whole host of car hire companies to choose from. We point out the best ones in our info pack, so make sure you check these out when we reply to your enquiry. We even give you the links to their web sites to save you looking them all up! A car would be recommended here at Anafotida to enable you to make the most of the area and all it has to offer.

TAXIS

If you would rather have a taxi collect you from Larnaca airport, I can book this for you with the firm I have used for many years. They are very reliable and have never let me down. These pre-booked taxis are generally cheaper than jumping in a taxi that's outside the airport. Our driver meets you as you exit the arrivals hall - holding a sign with your name on and takes you straight to the villa.

Wonderful holiday! Well-organised, good information and fast support from Tracy and the caretakers in Cyprus. First time in a long time we were sad to be going home. Café Aman was enjoyable – too much food! The area was very nice away from the hordes, relaxed and natural.

Lovely Villa in Peaceful & Relaxing Surroundings.

Lovely Villa in Peaceful & Relaxing Surroundings.
  • Submitted: Oct 9, 2013

Villa Swalletta is the ideal place to relax and unwind. Very very peaceful with fantastic views of the Cypriot countryside from the private pool area at the back of the villa. The sight of the local shepherd moving his flock across the fields behind the villa was a very tranquil backdrop, and perfect to sit and watch with a glass of (surprisingly good) local wine in hand. The village, on the outskirts of which Villa Swalletta is located, has a fantastic small restaurant called Cafe Aman, which serves unfeasibly large mezes at very reasonable prices, and the charming owners are more than happy to sit and chat about the area. A barbecue is also provided for evening meals by the pool which was very useful. A village around 3km away had an excellent butcher who was happy to even marinade some pieces of chicken especially for us. All in all a wonderful place for a holiday; highly recommended. Organisation was excellent from the directions down to the selection of guidebooks and information at the villa. A fantastic holiday, we’ll definitely be back.

When I booked Villa Swalletta in mid October, I was hoping to have the opportunity to either, hike, run or cycle during my stay. The villa proved to be the perfect location for all of these activities. The views from the villa were stunning: gently undulating hills criss-crossed by trails stretching for miles into the distance. I found that within minutes of leaving the villa I could be running or walking through olive groves, orchards of pomegranates and fields of beans and tomatoes leading up to higher summits with an awesome panorama of the surrounding region. The paths and trails provided the perfect terrain for running and mountain biking and I found that I could easily access other villages such as Anglisides and Mazotos via these trails. This was a bonus for me as I didn’t have a car for the duration of my stay. Cycling on the roads was also great: wide cycle paths run for miles alongside the coastal road which in any case was quiet with hardly any traffic. I didn’t have the time during this stay to head for the more challenging, winding climbs up to the mountain village of Lefkara (where the lacemaking is a major attraction) but it would be on my list for next time. As would a trip to the Troodos Mountains which sound like a haven for hikers, cyclists and runners. It was a bonus to find that even without a car I could travel easily to Larnaca via a bus from Anafotida. The bus left a stop a few hundred yards from the village centre at 9am every morning, taking about half an hour to arrive in the centre of Larnaca right next to the beaches and sea- front restaurants and bars. You could return at either 1.45 or 5.30pm (approx). A single trip was only 2 euros and the bus driver very helpful despite a complete lack of English! The villa was beautifully appointed with everything you would need for a relaxing (or energetic) stay. Being so close to the village centre was great too as you could wander to the bars and restaurants within minutes. I did find my torch useful though for a short stretch of road alongside the complex before reaching the lights of the centre itself. I particularly recommend Café Aman with its friendly English-speaking owners and the huge portions of salads and grilled meats. Villa Swalletta was perfect for me, as I imagine it would be for anyone wanting to be in a peaceful, rural area with direct access to the open countryside and all the opportunities it offered for either gentle or more strenuous exercise.

The Villa is smart, clean and airy with modern, tasteful décor. It has excellent air con and enough shower/bathroom facilities for any family, even those with teenagers. The pool area gets the sun all day and evening and looks out onto open fields dotted with the occasional olive and fruit tree. To the right are the mountains. It was sheer bliss to wake up to the sunshine and that vista, through the patio doors in the bedroom, and then have breakfast on the balcony. If any assistance is required, service is fast and efficient in the form of ‘Bert’, which was a huge relief for us, having managed to lock ourselves out at 8pm one night!! Within walking distance, the little village of Anafotida is charming and the villagers are very friendly and welcoming. We recommend the Restaurant Aman but be sure not to eat for at least two days beforehand; the food just keeps coming…. A short drive away is the larger village of Anglesides which has what is now my favourite bakery (the best fruit tarts and pastries I’ve had in decades – must try the Koubes!). The name begins with “Zo…” but I don’t have a Greek keyboard to give the full name. Don’t worry though, the Villa has a file full of all of this and more instructions and information on all the best places. We loved the Villa, the climate, the Cypriots and the country in general. Definitely worth return visits.

The perfect place to stay for a rest.

  • Submitted: Sep 6, 2012
  • Stayed: Jul 2012
We really loved our stay at Villa Swaletta. It’s a very nice spot and the house is very comfortable and spacious. The children were happy to have a pool on their own with a lot of pool toys. They also appreciated the wide range of DVDs they could watch in the evening.
Bert and Brenda, the caretakers, are very kind and provided us with a lot of useful information.
It’s a perfect place to stay when you want to have a rest and spend a quiet holiday with your family. The location is beautiful with nice views over the surrounding hills. If you want to explore during your stay it’s within a short drive and you can reach all the major tourist spots. Anafotida is a real Cypriot village with a shepherd and sheep passing by every day. There is especially one thing we appreciated in this part of Cyprus – there are so many beaches that you can stop wherever you want and you are almost sure to be practically alone. It’s much more pleasant than the overcrowded tourist areas.

ANAFOTIDA - the villa is only 200-300m from Anafotida, a traditional Cypriot village which is mainly agricultural, with tomatoes being a dominant crop. The village has seen a huge make-over of late with massive investment in its infrastructure. A charming new village square has been created with new lighting and pedestrianized areas with all the new paving extending outwards from the village centre. It is well worth a wander with a “refreshment” stop in one of the local bars or try a Meze in the popular Café Aman where Andreas and his wife will welcome you with open arms! There are 4 churches, 4 cafés (1 is a restaurant), a really good little village supermarket for all the essentials, a bank (no ATM though), a barber shop, a small hairdresser's and a garage.

ANGLISIDES - is about 3km from Anafotida and is slightly bigger with a number of cafés, 2 banks with ATMs, a lovely bakers and a great butchers shop opposite. There are 2 small garden centres and it also has 2 supermarkets with good supplies to save you going in to Larnaca.

MAZOTOS - located about twelve miles south-west of Larnaca town and 5-10 mins from the villa, is a traditional Cypriot village, again, primarily of agricultural nature with an abundance of Olive groves to be found in the surrounding area. Whist the village proper is somewhat set back from the coast, a few restaurants and even the Camel Park which is a very popular local tourist attraction (great for adults and kids alike), can be found closer to the seafront. The beach at Mazotos is only 10-15 minutes away where you'll see many people walking along the scenic walkway, fishing or sunbathing. The beach here at Mazotos now has a funky beach bar with sunbeds, tables, chairs etc. and a bit further along is the new Kite Surf school where some of our guests have had surfing lessons. There’s also another little gem of a local beach that we’ve recently found; not far from the villa at “Secret Paradise of Alaminos”. It’s well worth a visit and is very clean and tidy with good food and has been recommended by our guests.

If you're looking for something a little livelier than Anafotida, Anglisides and Mazotos, then LARNACA, with its vibrant nightlife, is only a 20-25 minute drive away. Alternatively, you could go in to LIMASSOL, which is slightly further along the coast in the opposite direction (approx 30 mins away). As with Larnaca, Limassol has a very varied and vibrant night-life being a popular tourist resort for many years and has a popular Water Park.

AGIA NAPA, PROTARAS and PERNERA are about a 45 minute drive along the A3 motorway from the villa. Here you'll find a multitude of attractions, beaches, bars, discos and restaurants. At Agia Napa you can also enjoy the fantastic Water Word Waterpark.

TROODOS MOUNTAINS - Located in the heart of Cyprus, the locals have christened the mountains a “Walker's Paradise” due to the vast array of fabulous trails. But there's no shortage of sporting activities for the energetic amongst you from skiing in the winter to paragliding, mountain bike riding, hiking, running and even rock climbing! There's also a multitude of sightseeing excursions in the Troodos Mountains. Take your pick from Byzantine Cypriot churches to the wine producing villages on the southern Troodos hills. Visit the Venetian Bridges near Tres Elias village or the village of Fini where you can buy some local handmade pottery. Or go and see the monks at the Kykkos Monastery. SKIING IN THE TROODOS MOUNTAINS - Skiing is usually available in the winter months from the beginning of January to the end of March. There are 5 slopes and 4 lifts (Hera, Aphrodite, Hermes and Zeus) and runs vary in ability for beginners through to advanced and they even offer routes for cross country skiers. You can hire equipment at the Cyprus Ski Club “ski shop”. Get there early though, as, on a busy weekend, the best equipment goes very fast!

All our guests receive a complimentary copy of our unique 30-page 'Villa Swalletta' Guest Information Pack crammed full of information about the area and giving tips and ideas about things to do. We send you a cut down version of this as a PDF document attached to our response to your initial enquiry. It also gives you links to all the Flight Companies and tips about Car Hire and Taxis plus lots, lots more.
