I am an English Chartered Accountant and after 40 years in business I have decided to slow down! I bought this villa with a view to spending more time in Cyprus and therefore the villa has been very well furnished and equipped as my second home, with a view to being used by myself and my family and friends. Whilst the four double rooms will allow this very large Villa to sleep 8, I believe that it should be enjoyed by the traditional family of four and so I offer a very generous discount of 40% to groups of 4 or less!
My mother comes from Kenmare in County Kerry, Southern Ireland, so I have spent a lot of my life holidaying in this lovely Irish town, in fact I am related to most of it and each year when I visit I am greeted by the locals with the words "Welcome home". In Alethrico I feel as much at home as I do in Kenmare. I just switch off and relax, they have so much in common, except of course for the Weather! I do really love Ireland, but not so much in the winter when I will come out to Amen Corner as much as possible to enjoy the sunshine and my second home.
The size of the villa is enormous so I may well hold my business conferences there, I think I will get a full turn out for my conferences from now on!!

In addition to all of the things Larnaca has to offer it is perfectly placed, making it an ideal base from which to explore the rest of the island.

PS In Cyprus they also drive on the left!!
Alethriko is a tranquil village nestled in a valley surrounded by pine trees, an ideal retreat for those wanting to totally relax. The village is reknown locally for its panoramic views and tranquility where only the birds break the silence. It isoverlooked by the majestic Stavrovouni monastery high on its isolated peak.
The village centre is a short stroll away where you will find the locals in the coffee shop playing backgammon, a supermarket, church and two local tavernas. For those who enjoy walking there are tracks leading up to the tops of the hills to admire the breathtaking sea view to one side, and the panoramic views over the valley on the other.
"Amen Corner" is 1km from the centre of the village and just a short walk to the nearest taverna-12 EUR for a traditional Meze (dips, grilled halloumi cheese, mix of grilled meats, salad, potatoes and fruit). Lots of other tavernas are within 15 minutes' drive in the nearby villages, or a 15 minute drive could take you down the coast to Zygi or Makenzie for a fabulous fish Meze.You are spoilt for choice and certainly won't go hungry!!
Larnaca town has several sandy beaches with sun beds, umbrellas, water sports, scuba diving, snack bars and restaurants. Other quiet beaches which are ideal for a picnic are 10 mins drive
The beauty of Alethriko is that while the village is so tranquil and idyllic, it is only a 2 minute drive to the main motorway and centrally placed on the island, anyone wanting to explore the many things Cyprus has to offer can do so with ease.
Nearby attractions include:- Just 5 minutes drive away is the recently opened Olympic standard shooting range in Klavdia, (hosts to the European Championship Shotgun event which is run by the European Shooting Confederation), Lefkara, a traditional lace making village, Mazatos Animal Park, Ten Pin Bowling, Cinema and Go karting........something for every body.

"Large spacious good quality villa"
This was a last minute booking via the holiday lettings website. One quick call to Angela at Homepride Services was all it took for all the arrangements for 2 weeks in Aug.
The villa is very well appointed with every modern convenience you could expect including internet, satellite tv (although bbc and itv1 have stopped transmissions), dishwasher etc and little touches like pool towels, water cooler, printer(should you need to be tied to your business).
Angela is on hand to sort out any problems. She was able to get a noisy dog opposite to villa moved back to his owners house. Great relief!
There's not really much I can fault with the villa - if there are more than 4 of you, the outside space is rather small - there's only room for 2 sun loungers. A kitchen table would be more useful than the small side table - there's plenty of space available.
Location is good for travelling around the island - I would say a car is essential. Getting to the beach is easy but if you want lots in the local area, this is probably not the villa for you as it's quiet and remote with great Cyprus views.The swimming pool is great - deep enough for us and shallow enough for our 4 year old and cleaned regularly.
I can highly recommend the villa and also Homepride services.
