English-speaking representative on hand to answer any questions and a detailed information book on both the apartment and Cyprus is within the apartment.
The Larnaca region
At the crossroads of three continents, Cyprus is the third largest island in the Mediterranean.
Cyprus is a small island in the Mediterranean with a great sunshine record of 340 days a year. Summer stretches from May to October with high temperatures, clear blue skies and gentle cooling breezes on the coast.
Remarkably it can be possible to swim at the beach and ski in the Troodos mountains in the same day during the Winter.
There are a variety of beaches and turquoise waters or rugged coastlines and dramatic scenery. Cyprus truly has something for everyone from diving underwater to visiting one of the oldest monasteries (Stavrouni) perched on a mountain top. There are a multitude of sports both on land or water to keep you entertained during the day and at night every type of nightlife is waiting, from loud karaoke pubs to quiet village tavernas and everything in between.
But what really marks Cyprus out is the warm friendliness of the locals. Try out a few words of Greek and you will have friends for life!
Cosmopolitan Larnaca town has a long palm tree fronted beach promenade and beautiful St. Lazarus Church, the fort, museums, shopping malls & authentic tavernas. The marina has boat tours available and the Mackenzie beach area is popular with the young due to great sand and sea conditions and numerous chill out bars and restaurants close by.
Just outside the centre of Larnaca is the Salt lake, visible from aircraft landing and the Hala Sultan Tekesi - important place of Muslem pilgrimage after Mecca. During the winter months the lake fills with water and is visited by flocks of flamingos.
Our apartment has a great location, completely free of noisy nightclubs and heavy traffic – although you may want to visit the nightlife just a short trip away! There are a variety of village restaurants and takeaways in Oroklini which cater for most tastes and for those missing home, every type of international cuisine is available just 5 minutes drive away on the Dhekelia Road.
Also in the area is a go karting track, ten pin bowling alley, Sunday market, and a horse riding club.
Slightly further afield will take you to a Camel Park. Basilica Kourion, The Ancient Amathous, Aphrodite's Rock, Lefkara and at Ayia Napa and Limassol are the waterparks. There are some beautiful bays and beaches all within a short drive and the Troodos Mountains and Nicosia can be reached within an hour.
Oroklini has a split personality : in part a picturesque and quiet rural village and for the remainder a vibrant centre with all the shops and amenities needed for a holiday. Situated on the outskirts of Larnaca on the south-eastern Cyprus coast, it stretches from Oroklini hill to the beach in Larnaca Bay, 2 miles away. Oroklini is about 50m above sea level at the foot of an oblong hill (208m high) which plateaus offering a variety of walks. Life in Oroklini is relaxed and you’ll never be far from a friendly face. English is widely spoken throughout the village.
Although Oroklini is a village, there is certainly no shortage of things to do in the area. There is an internet cafe , horse-riding, donkey rides, ten-pin bowling, bars & a playground for the kids.
For those who enjoy walking, Oroklini Hills is the starting point of many of the local trails. From the top there are breath-taking views and on a clear day it is possible to see as far as Stavrovouni Monastery, the Salt Lakes at Larnaca and the Troodos Mountains. If you don't want to walk up the hill you can hire a 4x4, a mountain bike or quad bikes to drive up and around it.
For dining, Oroklini has several restaurants and takeaways. Some of the restaurants are nationally recognised for standards and we’re happy to make recommendations to help you enjoy your evenings, including a great meze. For those who like more life in the evenings, take a taxi just 5 minutes away to the main coast road which is lined with lively restaurants and bars. For those feeling homesick there is even an English fish and chip shop in the village!
Oroklini's Yanathes beach is 3km from the centre of the village. It stretches along Larnaca Bay for 2km and is suitable for families and couples alike. This pleasant sandy beach has been awarded a coveted blue flag. With plenty of amenities and sports available it’s perfect for those who can’t sit still for too long. For those who don’t want to move from their sun loungers, we can suggest a couple of local bars which have their own beach areas so you can relax on a comfortable sunlounger without being far from the bar or facilities but with no hectic sports nearby. If you would like to scuba dive there are several good diving centres in the area and you are not far from one of the top ten diving sites in the world, the Zenobia. You can also take boat trips from the marina at Larnaca including a trip on the only true submarine in Cyprus.
From Larnaca centre cruises to Egypt and Israel are also available.
Fly to Larnaca Airport from most major airports and our apartment is just 10-15 minutes away via car. We can provide a meet and greet service on request (charge applicable).
Flights are available from £70 per person return.
