The Larnaca region
Offering year round sunshine Cyprus attracts people in all seasons. Arriving at Larnaca’s new airport is a taste of what is to come.
Leaving the airport behind, the traveller moves on and gets to experience Larnaca district with a mix of the old and the new, town and countryside, fields and beaches - the mix of Cypriot life. The town itself has many charming buildings, museums and shops.
The coastline is famous for its beaches and marina with many opportunities to enjoy the clear blue sea. Away from the centre of town there are many other beaches and villages to explore.
Choirokoitia (also spelt Khirokitia) is located almost midway between Larnaca and Limmasol in the south of Cyprus and around 40 minutes to the capital Nicosia. Famous for its Neolithic remains nearby (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) it is the ideal place to base yourself to get the most out of your Cyprus holiday. Both Larnaca and Limassol are around 25 to 30 minutes drive away.
Set on the edge of the village the development is surrounded by countryside with views up the mountains and down to the sea. There are olive groves, lemon trees and the local village’s nature trails will take you near to the ancient settlement. Right next to the development is the Rainbow restaurant offering traditional Cypriot food and delicious snacks. There are many other restaurants a short drive away and part of the fun in exploring Cyprus is discovering new places both on and off the beaten track.
A ten minute drive will take you to the coast. Zygi is famous for its fish restaurants or go and laze on nearby Governor’s Beach (blue flag) and try out the watersports. Larger blue flag beaches can be found in Larnaca and Limmasol along with the full range of beach activities. It is worth spending time exploring these two towns offering a mix of historical and modern sites including museums and galleries. Just the other side of Limmasol is Lady's Mile beach, a favourite for many.
Whatever it is you want to do you are likely to find it nearby. Whether it is golf, horse riding, diving, cycling, fishing, paintballing or visiting the historic sites these are just a short drive away. There are also waterparks, cinemas and even a Camel Park. Nicosia and Limmasol also offer modern shopping malls and if it takes your fancy you can also pop into Nicosia’s Ikea.
Drive up into nearby foothills of the Troodos mountains and you will soon come to beautiful villages such as Pano Lefkara famous for its lace and silver products. Further on into mountains is Mount Olympus where you can go walking in the summer and go skiing in the winter.
No visit to Cyprus is complete without visiting the Roman and Greek remains. A little further the other side of Limmasol are the ruins of Kourion with its spectacular amphitheatre and mosaics.

"Peaceful and rural in the Mediterranean"
We had a wonderfully peaceful and relaxing holiday at this property located in 'Gemstone Villiage' which is a development of villas and apartments a few minutes drive away from the coast. During the time that we were there, very very few of the properties were occupied giving us a very private and peaceful holiday. We had near-exclusive use of the communal pool - during our stay one group of three girls used the pool once, and one chap used it each evening. Apart from that it was ours! I couldn't comment on what the atmosphere might have been like during peak time but for us the quiet solitude in late September was perfect. We enjoyed sea views from the roof terrace, evening barbecues on the balcony, sunny walks through the countryside and days out exploring the island by car. There *is* a shop within walking distance however we didn't find it until late in the holiday so we often used the supermarket which is only a 5 minute drive away. The apartment was modern and minimalistically furnished (if not a little sparse), and presented all of the facilities we could have needed. Communication and service from the property owner was second to none - thank you.

"Olympus House was a great find"
The bungalow was exceptionally clean and well furnished. Everything you would need is there. The beds were extremely comfortable, infact I had some of the best night sleeps I have ever had. The patio areas and roof terrace are spacious and there are some lovely views to be had. All in all extremely peacefull. The surrounding area and swimming pool were kept spotlessly clean. The village itself has a couple of good resteraunts and cafe's - also the bakery had some delicious daily offerings including the most delicious bread. The bungalow is well positioned for visiting Larnaca, Limassol and even the drive to Paphos only took over an hour. We found the owners extremely helpful - nothing was to much trouble. We would have no hesitation in staying at Olympus House again.
Since returning we have recommended it to family and friends as a real little gem of a place.

"The Gemstone Village really is a hidden gem"
We have stayed at this bungalow for the last two summers and would go again and again. The accommodation is immaculately presented and provides everything we need for a top of the range, self catering holiday.The bungalow is in a great position overlooking the pool which is the centrepiece of the holiday village and there are lovely views from the roof terrace, especially at sun down. We barbecued at the property most nights but also sampled the local tavernas on offer - Pete's is right next door and his home-made chips are the best! A car is necessary to try out the others and get to the supermarket, beach etc.
Booking is simple, the owner is very nice and communication is fast and straightforward.
This property and the Gemstone Village offer everything we want in terms of comfort, peace and quiet and access to amenities and the rest of the island.
