Of course, if it's a beach holiday you're after, this area offers miles of sandy beaches stretching from the Dhekelia tourist area with it's line of 5 star hotels to the Finnikoudes, Mackenzie beach area, not forgetting Kiti and Pervolia with Faros beach, famous for it's watersports activities.
Larnaca, the oldest town in Cyprus, was once an important trading centre from where the island's main export of copper was shipped. The modern city is built over the ruins of the ancient city kingdom. The town has a unique atmosphere and is a wonderful place to explore on foot as you'll contantly make new discoveries. Cyprus has many churches, temples and monuments belonging to both Christianity and Islam as the island is split between Turkish and Greek communities. Larnaca is no exception to this, having both the magnificent Orthodox Church of Ayios Lazaros, built in the town over the tomb of St.Lazarus, on the banks of the salt lakes. The Hala Sultan Tekke is one of the Holiest Shrines of Islam built over the tomb of Umm Haram.

In Nicosia (30 minutes by car) there is an excellent shopping centre and leisure complex with cinema. Within the complex is Debenhams, Next, Zara and Uk fast food restaurants.
Alethriko is an unspoilt, rural village surrounded by beautiful scenery. It is in a valley, surrounded by pine trees, an ideal retreat for those wanting to totally relax and escape. The village is reknowned locally for it's panoramic views of the Cypriot countryside and tranquility where only the birds singing breaks the silence.
The village centre is only a short stroll away from the apartment where you will find the locals in the coffee shop playing backgammon, a church, two tavernas, bank with ATM and a supermarket. For those who enjoy walking, there are tracks leading up to the top of the hills of the valley, leading to a breathtaking sea view to one side and panoramic vista over the valley to the other side.
Surrounding villages of Kiti, Pervolia and Anglisides have an abundance of amenities to offer and the nearest beaches are only a 5 minute drive away at Matazos or near to Camel Park. You simply turn right out of the apartment, head for the sea, through two villages to Mazotos, once on the coast road turn left or right and pick your beach! For the full sun bed and beach facilities take a drive to Larnaca, Zygi (20 minutes), Dhekelia (25 minutes) or Governors Beach, Limassol (25 minutes).
The beauty of Alethriko is that, whilst the village itself is so tranquil and idyllic, it is only a 2 minute drive to the main motorway and centrally placed on the island.

"An excellent holiday, we didn't want to leave and will definately be going back."
I was a little worried after reading the reviews about the apartment location not being ideal for children, however this was the perfect location for a family holiday.
The apartment was clean and bigger than expected with an open plan living and dining area which lived up to the high standard as described on the website. All amenitites were provided for including a cot and an extra bed for the children.
The pool area was idyllic and peaceful and felt like we had our own private pool, the girls were happy with the amount of inflatables that were provided for.
We enjoyed going for a stroll around the village and taking the children to the numerous play parks.
I would definately recommend eating at the local restaurant, the food was amazing and the locals were really friendly, friday night is the busiest night to go with live entertainment, you might have to book for this night, but be warned that the meals are huge even for the children it would be worth sharing.
There are plenty of places to visit within 15-20 minutes drive of the apartment. Larnaka is definately a must with the cobbled streets adorned with shops and various restaurants. The beech is clean with clear blue waters and ideal for younger children who will feel at ease with the shallow waters.
The camal park is great for all ages, make sure you take your swimming gear as there is a pool there as well so you can spend the whole day.
We have had the best holiday ever and the only down side is that we had to come home. We can't wait to visit again.
