We had a fantastic time…We barely spent much time in the villa Jardim (thanks to all the info sent by email beforehand and info upon arrival) we just couldn’t stop ourselves from jumping in the car and heading off to explore.
We hired our car from Cy-Breeze..very helpful..very good price.. car was excellent, clean and very reliable. We found villa Rep Nicole very helpful when we met her and her advice to take our little boy to the Paphos bird and animal park was the best tip we could have had as he thoroughly enjoyed it and so did we. Much to our surprise as we are not huge fans of zoos especially ones abroad as we have had some bad experiences with them being unclean and unkind to animals, but the Paphos bird and animal park has to be the best park/zoo of its kind (even in comparison to ones we have visited over here in England) just wonderful, and one of the highlights of our holiday (even better as we had been able to use the Sundance Villa discount). We also visited the Troodos Mountains with its breathtaking scenery. We visited some of the villages such as Lysos, which we were particularly fond of and had a lovely cup of tea (and very cheap! compared with tourist areas) at the top of the hill/ mountain there in Lysos at a table and chairs overlooking a cliff top which was just fabulous. We managed to take in Latchi, Polis, Paphos Harbour, Akamas (which we abandoned in the end due to rough terrain, despite being in the 4x4 was worried as poor Harri's head was bouncing all over the place- all good fun though!) as well as a ride down almost as far as Limassol. I could continue listing places, but fear I could be hear all day....
Had some wonderful meals ..our favourite place to go was SERIANI's nr our Villa. All staff were extremely friendly here, the food was fabulous (especially Lamb kleftiko) and George was so attentive that our little boy became quite attached to him, in the end it felt like we were saying goodbye to a family member. It was just lovely to be so welcome and not feel like it was put on at all. Such genuine people and lovely atmosphere. The owner of our villa was also very helpful when we could not work the satellite tv
