About Roger Blakemore

Sarah and I own a landscape gardening business and we are based in Waterlooville near Portsmouth in Hampshire. We have been running our business for the last 12 years and it is called Roger & Sarah's gardening services.

We like to spend winter months and if possible the early part of the season in Cyprus which is our second home.

Roger Blakemore purchased this villa in 2005

Why Roger Blakemore chose Sotira

We fell in love with the view of the Mediterranean from a mound of earth just behind and to the left of where the pool is for The Haven when it was just a greenfield site, as we bought both of our villas off plan. Buying them off plan was very exciting as it meant we could make changes as to how they would finally look and watch them being built! The fact that they both were large plots of around 500 square metres attracted us as we knew we would have plenty of space once the villas were finished.

We love the fact that we can watch the fishing boats returning in the mornings to the small fishing shelter of Potomos where there are two amazing fish restaurants - the picture of me was taken at the restaurant at the mouth of the estuary where you can virtually touch the sea whilst waiting for your food!

We have made The Haven and Rosara a home from home and they are where our family, friends and ourselves stay when we are in Cyprus.

What makes this villa unique

We have gone the extra mile for both villas and their pools as they are both 10 x 5 metre tiled overflow ones with a Roman Nose with steps leading into the shallow end of 0.80m and with a deep end of 1.5m this makes it a very sociable pool as an adult can walk the full length. It also makes it a very safe pool for children too.

For those alfresco moments there is a large traditional BBQ set in the mature and secluded gardens - there is also a preparation area including a sink.

There are now 3 man made beaches in Ayia Thekla - two of which have little restaurants adjacent to them which make them an ideal place to catch some rays and have some nice food.

The Water Park is 4kms away, the cosmopolitan town of Ayia Napa is 9kms away, Nissi Beach 6kms, Ayia Thekla beaches between 1.5km and 2km and finally Potomos 2kms away. Larnaca airport is a 35 minute journey.

The Haven is located close enough to the vibrant town of Ayia Napa - just a short car journey or taxi ride away, but far enough away to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the villa, its wonderful private pool and all its facilities.

Perfect holiday.

  • 5 of 5

The villa was spotlessly clean and very well presented. A Welcome pack of a few essentials was also supplied. Very well equiped, in the kichen area. Plenty of hangers in the wardrobes. Easy to follow instructions to set the safe up.........a home from home. The outside area was also well furnished. The pool was regularly checked. Gavin had all the answers for any questions you may have, he was also able to organise your cleaning/laundry needs.

Haven is not far from Agia Napa if you want the night life or Protarus if your looking for a more family feel. Both areas have lots of choice for dining, beaches, shops and supermarkets. I found the local shops best for shopping. Just like anywhere else look around. Doesn't have to be expensive.

A car I would say was a necessary, especially if you intend to travel further ie Troodos, Paphos as we did.

We were celebrating our Golden Anniversary, and had looked at lots of villas before we chose Haven. It was perfect. Roger Blakemore was a pleasure to speak to and very helpful and understanding.

I would go again in a heart beat.

If your looking for the perfect holiday, you couldn't go wrong choosing Haven.

Owner's Response: We have had many couples and families who feel the same way, and quite a number now who have celebrated special Birthdays, Anniversaries or other occasions at The Haven. We have just taken a booking for April next year for both our villas - Villa Rosara property number 84268 is situated just behind The Haven so a great venue for large family gatherings to come together and enjoy their time in Cyprus. We have always felt that good communication before, during and after are a prerequisite for a great holiday; and with Gavin and Alison, who look after our Villas in Cyprus, on hand for any questions, then we have the perfect mix.

Great autum!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the stay with our 3 kids. Weather was still ok. The house and the pool were great. 3 minute drive to the beach and 5 minutes to the next small shop. A bigger supermarket takes 15 minutes. We can recommend the house!

Fantastic villa with beautiful private pool

  • 4 of 5

This was our first holiday in a villa. I cannot say how much we all enjoyed staying in this villa. The owners have thought of everything for your comfort. The pool area is a lovely private area not overlooked by anyone, and the shaded area was welcome with temperatures touching 44 degrees. We hired a car and I have to say this was essential as there is nothing really within 1-2 miles of the villa. This became a little bit tedious having nowhere to walk out to. If I had to give a negative, it would be the walk in steps to the pool, it could have done with a handrail as my parents were a little wobbly going down the steps without having nothing to hold on to. Overall a fantastic holiday in a very peaceful area. Lovely English neighbours. The only reason we didn't give it a 5* is because of the location.

Bus routes will take u to all things you need, shops, beach, agai nappa. For 1.50! They go around every hour! We will be returning! Thank you for allowing us to stay in your villa.. it was lovely! And the weather was perfect ! ☀️

Fab villa

  • 5 of 5

Yet another great stay at the Haven.

We stayed there has my son was getting married in protaras, which isn't far in a car. My sister and family stayed in the Rosara (havens sister villa) which was also a great villa.

The layout is great, it's clean and has everything you need. It really is home from home, you just relax in there straight away.

Gavin who looked after us whilst we were there is brilliant, Nothing is too much trouble and he's there straight away if needed.

We travelled around whist there and spent time in protaras, Ayia Napa, where we had some great meals. We went into paralimni for our shopping but there's a small supermarket down by Aiya thekla beach where you can get almost everything from.

Water park in Ayia napa is good, also the fair where the kids enjoyed theirselves.

Try Demetrion fish bar in potamos, good food and a lovely setting on the beach.

Also Flames and los bandidos in ayia napa serve delicious food.

I would and have recommended these villas to friends and family.

Thank you again to Roger and Sarah.

Nearest Airport
50 Kilometres
Car: recommended

The Villa is on a small complex of 17 properties in an area of exceptional natural beauty known as Ayia Thekla, which is located 35 minutes from Larnaca airport, 5 minutes from Ayia Napa and 8 minutes from Proteras on the south east coast of Cyprus. The villa sits back 800 metres from the coastline between the church of Ayia Thekla and the fishing village of Potamos. The location benefits from the gentle sea breeze and has fantastic sea views. Just a few minutes away is the blue flag beach of Ayia Thekla which is a superb sandy beach. Cyprus's largest waterpark is also only a few minutes away and is a great day out for all the family. The nearby towns of Ayia Napa and Proteras are focused on families and couples with plenty to do whatever your interests. There are excellent restaurants and tavernas, with bars, clubs and modern shops. Ayia Napa has a vibrant town square and popular fun fair, with many other activities including water sports and hiking.

Other Activities: go-kart and waterpark.

Golf: The stunning Aphrodite Hills 18 hole Championship Standard golf course designed by Cabell B. Robinson is a 90 minute drive away, so you can take in some of the island's natural beauty on your way to an amazing round of golf. The course, which took five years to make, follows the scenic contours of the two plateaux; its challenging fairways, cutting a swathe through lakes, olive and carob trees - it is no wonder that the course has taken its rightful place amongst the very best the Mediterranean can offer.

Afterwards you can relax in the clubhouse Restaurant which serves a light 5 star a la carte menu.
