Explore beauty and history with a Cyprus holiday villa
Cyprus, the Mediterranean's third largest island, is a joy to explore. This is a land of ancient ruins, beautiful coastline, and an enchanting atmosphere, not to mention a climate that keeps people visiting year after year.
From the cultural hub of Nicosia to the picturesque Troodos mountains, those who rent a holiday villa in Cyprus will find much to fall in love with.
How to get to Cyprus
Cyprus is accessible via Larnaca International Airport, which has connections with many cities across Europe and the Middle East. The airport is located around 6 km from the centre of Larnaca. If you're staying in the city, you can easily reach your Cyprus holiday villa via taxi or public transport.
If you choose to rent a villa in a more rural location, you'll probably find it more convenient to rent a car, especially as many of the island’s main attractions are located in hard-to-reach areas.
There are also flights into the smaller Paphos International Airport and Ercan International Airport, though these are served by fewer routes than Larnaca.
Cyprus' beautiful weather
Generally speaking, you can expect sunshine during your holiday in Cyprus at any time of year. The island's low season is between November and February, which is known as the ‘rainy season’. However, rainfall is still pretty minimal and the sun shines most days, though the temperature is a bit cooler.
Spring and autumn bring pleasant temperatures, while the height of summer sees scorching heatwaves of around 29-34°C. Renting a holiday villa will give you somewhere cool and shady to retreat during the hottest part of the day.
Cyprus' top attractions
Cyprus combines classic beach holiday activities with fascinating cultural ruins and museums, so you'll definitely find there's plenty to keep everyone entertained.
At Kourion, in the south, a UNESCO World Heritage Sight, you’ll find extensive Ancient Roman ruins. The most impressive building is the Kourion Theatre, which dates back 1,800 years. Still in use, it is able to accommodate thousands of spectators. If you rent a Cyprus holiday villa during the summer, you’ll be able to see a show at the venue as part of the International Festival of Ancient Greek Drama.
Another popular attraction is St. Hilarion Castle, a well-preserved castle that dates back around 1,000 years. As well as exploring the site, which was used to keep lookout for pirates and other invaders, you can also enjoy the view from the top - the castle is perched on top of the beautiful Kyrenia Mountains.
There are some excellent hiking trails to be found, which range from short afternoon strolls to multi-day treks. If you really want a challenge, try the Kyrenia Mountain Trek, on which you’ll cover 230 kilometers of rocky terrain. Not for the faint hearted!
It’s not all about ruins and strenuous activity, however. People come to Cyprus to relax and you will find plenty of opportunities to do just that. Larnaca combines the old and the new to create a great beach resort. The laid-back atmosphere and many bars mean it’s a great place to unwind, especially on one of the many beaches that line the shore. Faros and Kastella are both Blue Flag beaches, while at CTO and Mackenzie beaches you can try your hand at water sports.
Activities with kids in Cyprus
Children will love staying in a Cyprus holiday villa! This safe and family-friendly destination offers plenty of beautiful beaches and fun activities to keep them entertained.
Aphrodite Water Park provides fun for the whole family, with rides, slides and the relaxing ’Lazy River’. There’s also a wave pool, which is a sure-fire hit with older kids. If you want to unwind in peace whilst they conquer the slides, you can relax on one of the many sunbeds that dot the park.
For a different kind of day out, head over to Dinosaur Park, a wooded area where the ancient beasts roam. Not only fun, it offers an educational experience for the whole family. Just don't tell the kids that beforehand!
