Cape Greco Villa Rental Photos and Description
2 bedroom villa, sleeps 5/6, pool, gardens, short walk to beach & all amenities
This modern, air-conditioned, sunny villa is beautifully and tastefully furnished and contains everything you need to make your holiday truly memorable. The location could not be better: it's a few minutes walk to the stunning Cape Greco National Park and fabulous Konnos beach with all the sand and watersports you could wish for, a two minute drive to the bustling resort of Protaras and Fig Tree Bay and only 10 minutes drive to Ayia Napa with all its night life and Waterworld. There are plenty of tavernas and restaurants within a few minutes walk, also a supermarket and the 5* Grecian Park Hotel. We have a 9x4 metre pool shared with just four other villas. The spacious open-plan living area comprises a comfortable lounge with flat-screen TV, satellite and DVD, a dining area and a fully equipped kitchen. Upstairs is the master bedroom with en-suite, a twin room and balcony with sea views and a family bathroom. Outside there are lovely private gardens with two patios, furniture and BBQ
Things to Do: Cyprus has over 320 days of sunshine a year and is generally over 20C from mid March to mid December. At Konnos Beach (a 10 minute walk) Mike's Watersports has a variety of boats, banana boats and jet skis for hire and offers water skiing, parasailing and snorkeling. There is also a beach side cafe and a cliff restaurant overlooking the bay at the Grecian Park Hotel. At Mimosa Beach (8 minutes in the other direction) there is another beach side cafe and a tennis court (€5 per hour). Boat trips with sea swim options are available in Protaras or Ayia Napa (10 minutes by bus or car), and day trips around the coast to Famagusta or evening dinner cruises. Waterworld in Ayia Napa is also a fun family day out. For exploring Cape Greco other than by car or on foot, Ham-Yam Rentals (walking distance from villa) hires bicycles, scooters, motorbikes and dune buggies. If you fancy diving try Triton Dive and explore the Cyclops Cave Dive Site less than 10 minutes walk from the villa.
For the less energetic: For life at a more sedate pace, explore the many beautiful small local churches and the monastry in Ayia Napa, the boutiques, traditional townhouses and aquarium in Paralimni (10 minutes by car or bus), the seafront and Cape Greco National Park walks, the Sunday market in Larnaca (45 minute drive or bus) or the brilliant Thessalonaki Museum in Ayia Napa. Details of these and lots of maps are in the villa and further ideas can be found in the Tourist Offices in Protaras, Paralimni and Ayia Napa. Alternatively just sit in one of the many coffee shops or bars and enjoy a drink (Keo and Leon are local brews) whilst reading - English and continental papers are widely available the same day.
Further afield: Even Paphos at the opposite end of the island is only a 2 hour drive and if you're interested in history there are the Tombs of the Kings and the Archaeological Park (similarly fascinating as Pompeii), both dating from about 340 BC, where you can see, amongst many other things, some beautifully preserved and breathtakingly intricate mosaic floors. Stop on your way and see the equally stunning site at Kourion just outside Limassol or stroll around Nicosia (1 hour drive from villa) but remember your passports if you want to enter the Turkish occupied sector. From there drive down through the fabulous Troodos mountains (take warm clothing!) and explore the many traditional villages, churches and handicrafts.
