'Everything was BETTER than expected & that is not due to low expectations.' The Westring family, Aug 2013.
Portokalia Villa is a superb holiday property in 'prime position' on the sought after 'edge' of the St Christopher's Village Development with wonderful views across to the hills, villages, orange and olive groves of this rural area. Sit on the balcony enjoying a glass of wine whilst watching the gorgeous sunsets over the mountains - often complimented by guests. 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.
Portokalia Villa is a modern 3-Bedroom property with chic interiors sleeping 6 in it's three en-suite bedrooms. We can, however, accommodate young babies in our cot-beds as we supply these free-of-charge to guests as well as high-chairs and stair gates if required. So if you had 6 adults and 2 babies in cot-beds, a total of 8 guests, this would be fine.
One of the bedrooms is on the ground floor (a double) which has an en-suite shower room and plenty of wardrobe space/storage and black-out curtains. Two further bedrooms are upstairs. The master bedroom has a double bed with en-suite bathroom and a large balcony that overlooks the garden and pool area and is a terrific place to relax watching the sun go down (or up!). The master bedroom has lots of storage space and wardrobes. The twin bedroom (also upstairs) faces the front of the property and has an en-suite shower room and again - plenty of wardrobe/storage space.
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. An added bonus is our Dishwasher!! There is also a handy additional downstairs cloakroom/WC. As mentioned previously - the 3rd double bedroom is downstairs with an en-suite shower room and the black-out curtains.
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 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 Portokalia Villa, 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.

Larnaca is the closest airport.
Most UK airports fly to Cyprus. Larnaca airport is the closest to Portokalia Villa (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.
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.
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.

Guestbook comments from the manager
This is a high quality place to stay in the quiet village of Anafotida a 20-30min drive from Larnaca airport. Our kids (8 & 6) loved the setting, especially the pool. All the bedrooms (3) have en-suite facilities and this is one of the best resourced villas we have stayed in. It was spotlessly clean. Easy to get about with a car, but local bus can take you to Larnaca. We especially loved the welcome and food at Cafe Aman in the village. The beach at Mazotos is great for sandcastle building in the early evening. Zophos the bakers in Anglisidies and the butchers opposite recommended. Water park in Ayia Napa – very hot - should have gone later in our holiday after we had acclimatised. Trip to Troodos was amazing though make sure your hire car can manage 1 in 9 hill climbs! We spent most of our time in the villa and the village with occasional trips out. Difficult to keep the kids out of the pool, but we thoroughly enjoyed our time here.
