Villa Christina is a luxury, spacious, modern 4 bedroom / 3 bathroom air-conditioned villa with its own private pool located at Gemstone Village, Choirokoitia. With beautiful views over the surrounding open countryside to the coast, it is an exclusive development with on-site facilities including a magnificent communal swimming pool, separate children's pool, convenient pool-side kiosk selling a range of snacks and drinks (seasonal), free-to-use tennis court and children's play area.
With four tastefully furnished large bedrooms (2 with en suite), immaculate, modern, comfortable furnishings, full air conditioning, internet access (wireless broadband) and TV with DVD/CD player, Villa Christina is the ideal location for up to 9 people (+ 2 cots).
Apart from the pool-side kiosk, a friendly family restaurant is just two minutes' walk from the villa..............why not try their wonderful selection of tasty Cypriot dishes or their refreshing homemade lemonade? There is also a wide selection of restaurants and bars located nearby either in the historic and beautiful village of Choirokoitia or neighbouring villages such as Tochni, Kalavassos or Skarinou. If you fancy eating in, a large, new AlphaMega supermarket is situated just 5 minutes' drive away and is open early until late 7 days per week for all your grocery needs.
Please note that the villa is very conveniently situated for access to the A1 motorway but is located in a very peaceful setting on the northern edge of the village of Choirokoitia. Guests are more likely to hear birdsong and crickets than any noise from the motorway!

Home to Cyprus' largest and brand new international airport, Larnaca is less than 30 minutes' drive away and is a bustling coastal resort. It is the third largest town on the island and its palm-tree lined sea front promenade has many cafes and bars and hosts a stunning marina and a daily local market. Mackenzie Beach at Larnaca is also a "must" with its large sandy and gently shelving beach and adjoining restaurants.
Gemstone Village is situated just on the edge of the historical village of Choirokoitia (also spelt Khirokitia), a UNESCO World Heritage site founded 7 Millennium BC. The local village has a traditional Cypriot charm with meandering, pretty streets as well as convenient facilities such as a village shop, post office and bars. The village is also conveniently situated between the three large cities of Cyprus; Nicosia, Larnaca, and Limassol, all of which are accessible by car within 25-30 minutes, and nearby beaches. This scenic village is the perfect location for enjoying the best of both worlds, exploring the tourist attractions that Cyprus has to offer, whilst providing a relaxing retreat in a peaceful location.
The local blue flag Governor's Beach, with its sweeping sandy beach and restaurants, is around 10 minutes' drive from Choirokoitia. Alternatively, you might want to try scuba-diving, horse riding, fishing, cycling or a trip to see traditional local activities such as olive-pressing. The many local nature trail walks are a wonderful way to enjoy the picturesque views or a wander through the paved streets of Choirokoitia will leave you admiring the characteristic houses of the area. The village of Zygi is also around ten minutes drive away, and here you will find stunning deep blue sea and the excellent seafood tavernas it is famed for. Agios Minas Monastery and the historic village of Lefkara with its beautiful embroidery and lace-making are also nearby.
Limassol, the island's largest seaside resort, boasts a wide range of tavernas, restaurants and shops. It has a Medieval Castle, local galleries, and is famous for its wine production. You may also want to take a cruise from there to the Holy Land or the Greek islands. Just outside of Limassol, you will find Fasouri Watermania, which offers the largest selection of water slides and attractions in Cyprus.
Nicosia is the largest city in Cyprus with a modern city centre, tree-lined avenues and a lovely Old Quarter. The city is full of restaurants and clubs, has excellent shopping facilities (e.g. IKEA, Debenhams, Carrefour) and is now the only divided city in the world.
There are several excellent golf courses in Cyprus, most of which are situated in scenic hillside locations.
The Troodos mountain range are well worth a visit and the stunning Mount Olympus (1,952m) can be reached in around an hour, where during the winter months of February and March you can ski on one of the three ski slopes. Hilltop villages full of vineyards and Byzantine churches make this a popular day trip when you need a rest from the beach, so if you want peace and tranquility, going for long walks, bird-watching or cycling in pine-scented forests this is for you.
