We are Tim and Rachel Richards. We live in Cornwall with our two children where we run our own business which keeps us very busy for most of the year and especially over the summer months. Hence by October every year we are more then ready for a relaxing holiday in the sun. Having tried other places it was in Cyprus that we felt truly relaxed - it has something for all the family and the people are so friendly and welcoming. So in 2010 we took the plunge and bought our own house there. As we cannot be there as much as we would like we want other people have a slice of the sun. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
Rachel Richards purchased this house in 2010

Also within 10-15 minutes are fantastic forest trails in the hills for all levels of walkers. Not forgetting the antiquities and history that is everywhere you look in Cyprus! And sunshine!

We were very happy with the locationduring our visit to this area. The house was well equipped.We had good communication with the owner who was very helpful. I would reccomend this property. Locally we could walk to some tavernas for food and drinks also a few small supermarkets for supplies. We would gladly go back here again. Visiting turtle beach was a highlight and the beautiful places to swim. Thank you
Special interest holidays:
Cyprus offers a wide variety of holidays. The Akamas peninsula and Lara Bay is a nature reserve which is one of the few places in the world where turtles can be observed coming onto land to lay their eggs.
Walking is a very popular pursuit in the area with a good network of paths both around the coast and in the pine clad hills. There is plenty of flora and fauna to be seen including the moufflon which is only found in Cyprus.
Sports both on and in the water are readily available. Boat trips and diving excursions can be arranged from various venues.
History and antiquities can be found everywhere - Pafos archaelogical park and The Tombs of the Kings are fascinating. Many churches and monastries are open to the public with their brightly painted icons.
Coral Bay is a 5 minute drive from Peyia. The main beach here offers free parking, a selection of bars/restaurants, sunbeds and watersports such as paragliding and banana boats. It is a safe, sandy, Blue flag beach which is lifeguard patrolled and great for children - go lizard hunting in the rocks!
Further along is Corallia Beach - this is smaller but still has a bar/shop and sunbeds. This beach is surronded by rocks and has shallow clear water which is great for kids to snorkel in.
