Helen of Troy Gardens
Villa | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Luxurious, recently-built 2 bedroomed maisonette villa in a prestigious, uniquely designed tropical garden development.
The property has not been furnished using a furniture pack. Each piece of furniture has been individually chosen, some hand made by local craftsmen, to create the ethos of a home in the hot Mediterranean. It has beautiful, hand made soft furnishings and leather sofas in order to create comfort and a less sterile and clinical experience than most lets. All rooms are equipped with solar blinds to keep cool in the height of the season and air conditioning with heating for the cooler weather. The communal pool, jacuzzi, gardens and play area are stunning, overlooked from the rear terrace, so you can relax while keeping an eye on the children. It is well-equipped, including flat-screen wall-mounted T.V. with satellite. There is a range of DVD's, books and games as well as comprehensive tourist information books and leaflets.
A ten-minute drive from Larnaca airport, but without the noise, it is situated in a traditional Cypriot village, close to amenities, such as supermarket, restaurants, several beauty spas, riding stables, Dreamland pleasure park and bus services, all within a few minutes' walk.
An ideal situation for families in safe and tranquil surroundings, but close enough to enjoy the city, go-cart track, beaches with water-sports, Mazotos camel park and the rest of Cyprus by road. Secret Valley Golf Course approximately 35 minutes' drive.

The Larnaca region
This area has something for all ages and types of tourist. The city of Larnaca has two seafront areas in the centre with miles of sandy beaches, some with the prestigious Blue Flag. There are promenades, cafes and watersports including paragliding, wind surfing, banana boats and diving courses at PADI diving centres. The new part is cosmopolitan, vibrant and fashionable, but the old areas still retain the original old Cypriot charm and quirkiness,as well as many historical sights of interest and significance in the area. There are theatres, fashion shops including famous names such as Next, Debenhams, Marks and Spencer and Top Shop, as well as other beautiful and traditional stores. The Larnaca Marina area is the place to be in the evening, with a wide variety of bars, restaurants and night clubs.There is a Sunday market and Ayia Napa is a very easy 30 minute drive, for more night life, restaurants and the best water park in Cyprus. An island of contrasts, the mountains offer stunning views and walks and there is ski-ing in the snow in winter.
The village itself is still a traditional retreat, full of Cypriot atmosphere. It has several supermarkets and tavernas and a bus service to Larnaca approximately every hour and a half. It is very friendly, and English is widely spoken. There are several new beauty spas within walking distance of the complex, should you feel in need of pampering and relaxation. This is an excellent base to explore Larnaca, Ayia Napa, Limassol and Nicosia, using the very easy motorway network, which has English road signs and driving is on the left. There is horse-riding in the village, a garden centre, a family fun park-Pleasureland,all in walking distance and a karting track 10 minutes' drive away. The camel park at Mazotos is an enjoyable experience. Paphos is a pleasant day trip, for its beautiful harbour and mosaics, being just over an hour away. The village of Pervolia, 5 minutes' drive away, also has bars, tavernas and restaurants which offer traditional Cypriot cooking, European dishes, singing and dancing. The local bakeries have a selection of cakes and pastries to die for! The festival of Kataklysmos in June is a must-see, with parades, fairs, stalls, entertainment events at the promenade open-air theatre, fireworks, puppet theatres and competitions - and all free.

The owner of the property has been extremely helpful/knowledgeable with my questions about the property and surrounding areas- responding quickly and accurately.
The villa itself was chic and had all the mod con needed.
Cyprus is really best explored by car as buses from villa are infrequent . Having said that i was recommended to hire a car locally - the car hire took us to the villa as it was late night - which i thought was lovely - i would certainly suggest getting a quote .
April the weather is just right in early 20 's but pool alittle to cold for me- did not stop the kids though.
There is a little park just beyond the villa terrace which the kids enjoyed daily.
The complex was quiet this time of year which suited us but may not be for everyone.
We had a lovely stay made very welcoming by good communication and friendly neighbor.

"A welcoming venue and pleasant surroundings"
I worked on the island and was dropped off in the quiet town of Teresfanou a week before my friends and family arrived, with no means of transport other than a bike. I thought this was going to be an issue, however I was pleasantly surprised. The two bedroom terrace was ideally located within close distance to Larnaca city, and close enough for me to ride out to the pleasant rolling coast towards Zigi, or up into the foot hills of Lefkara. This means that anyone with a vehicle is within the blink of an eye from some of the most popular destinations in Cyprus.
The apartment is furnished lavishly and has all the mod cons including air-con, a fully decked out kitchen and a flat screen HD TV with FOX movies and a DVD player (with a wide selection of DVDs). I have to admit I plugged a playstation 3 in when bored - but this wasn't very often. The downside is that there is no wifi on the property, which meant I had to go to a bar 1 mile up the road each night to email home or check my bank. Which I was disappointed with.
The neighbors are very accommodating and helpful, and this adds to the feel of your stay, especially when socializing.
The pool is lovely to cool down and go for a dip in - especially during the hot summer months after riding, running or just a day trip out.
This location is not for the Agia Napa crowd though, and is more of a get away location for a family or young/middle aged couple who want to escape and relax away from the clubs etc. That being said, a car is ESSENTIAL if you wish to get out and see the island - if you dont have transport, expect to be bored in Teresfanou and Kiti very quickly.
The local bars are fantastic though, and the food within the district is some of the best I have had on the island - much better than Nicosia.
All in all, a great location with competitive prices.
I'm so pleased you enjoyed the house and the community it's in.and am so sorry you arrived by bike. It does state on the advert "car advised" as it is outside the city,as well as there being a bus regularly. This makes it an ideal "getaway" and family holiday, Dreamland being a short walk away. It's worth noting that wi-fi is available in a bar only round the corner. I hope this didn't spoil your stay too much.
