The Famagusta region
This region of Cyprus enjoys an estimated 345 days of sunshine a year and is ideal for a holiday throughout the year.
The best beaches on the island can be found in this region - Cape Greco, Nissi Beach, Fig Tree Bay and many more - many have been awarded the 'Blue Flag' which means they are great for families with small children as the beaches are fine white sand which gently shelves into the crystal clean waters of the Mediterranean.
The sea is excellent for snorkelling and scuba diving and there are all kinds of water sports - some quite tame and others quite adventurous!
The Troodos mountains are a great place to visit in contrast to the beaches - here you will find pretty villages and the air temperature will be a little cooler - and of course in the winter you can ski
You can also spend some time in Nicosia (last divided city in Europe) with its shops, boutiques and places of interest or visit a church or two. Recently people have been able to cross into northern Cyprus with one border control point in Nicosia city for pedestrians. Here you can sample Turkish Cypriot culture.
The Villa is located in a quiet residential area outside Paralimni, but still less than a 5min walk from restaurants, supermarkets, shops and bakeries.
You will find local bakers offering fresh bread 24 hours a day, 7 days a week - there are also other everyday products available from the supermarkets. Some Fabulous Typical Cypriot Restaurants are within walking distance.
There are many beautiful churches.

There are two water parks a short drive away, the water park in Protaras is smaller and more suited to the younger family. Whereas Ayia Napa hosts the larger of the parks and boasts a variety rides. A zoo and aquatic centre are also close by.
