“Wonderful” We are a family of 4 and have just had the most wonderful week staying in Villa Millie Cyprus. The villa was exactly as described and everything we had hoped it would be -modern, clean and well equipped. The location is perfect, 5 minute walk from a good range of restaurants and gift shops etc and a really lovely quiet beach. Andy the villa owner was great throughout and responded quickly to all emails/texts etc. We wish we had booked for 2 weeks now as we were definitely not ready to come home. We would 100% recommend staying here to anyone and would love to return to stay again ourselves one day.

“Value for money” We have stopped in quite a few Villas in the Protaras and Pernera area. However I can categorically say this is the best equipped Villa both inside and out we have ever stayed in. My wife and I were with my daughter, her husband and 3 children. On arrival the Villa was very clean and we were provided with a nice welcoming pack. Outside there were more than sufficient sunbeds, seats and tables around the very private pool area. The location of the Villa is on a small cull de sac and is probably a 5 minute walk to the varied bars and restaurants in Penera. So it is a nice enough distance away from any passing tourist noise which is extremely relaxing during the day or for an evening barbecue. Mark was excellent in keeping in touch with us before the holiday and thank you for arranging our transfers and late departure. I would certainly recommend this Villa for any family who wishes to holiday in Pernera. We all thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and will certainly return.

“Roll on next year” Just returned from our 2nd visit to the villa and once again it could not have been better. Airport transfer was faultless (thanks to Martin), villa and pool were spotlessly clean on our arrival. Jo and Chaz are a pleasure to deal with, they will do anything to help and accomodate you. Villa is fully equipped to a high standard with everything you could need. It was nice to meet Tony the pool man and his other half Paula they were very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed it so much we booked for 2013 while we were still there. Fab place, fab villa. You must try it. Thanks very much to Jo, Chaz and Daniel. Allison & Les xxx

“Amazing holiday” We stayed in a beautiful Villa about 10 minute walk to the strip/beach in Protaras, there are a number of shops/restaurants on the walk to the strip, no need for a car but we hired one as we like to drive out to Cape Greco where the pirate ship sails out to, and we watch everyone jumping out and having a swim, beautiful views. We also went to Nappa, it cost 2.50 euros per person each way which is quite cheap, Nappa st night is defo worth a visit. Overall we all had a lovely holiday and would go back again.

“Excellent villa - fully equipped!” We were a group of friends and family staying in the villa for a long weekend. It was a great getaway and although we originally planned to go to the beach we actually havent even stepped out from the house/pool. You will have everything you need from wine glasses to garlic press, from magazines to playstation. Its pure relaxation, close to the beach BUT quiet and private! I absolutely recommend this villa! Both the owner and the property manager were super flexible and nice which meant a lot for us! Thanks again!

“Spacious ideal family apartment.” Fully equipped spacious apartment as part of a lovely complex. The central pool is very clean and ideal for kids as well as a swim. The near by town has a large number of shops and restaurants with some fabulous local foods served. The beaches at Fig tree bay are great for sun beds and water sports as well as restaurants. We spent a whole day at the water park in Ayia Napa. Which is a bit pricey but there were no queues for the rides in June. Also did a boat trip with Captain Marco who looks a bit like santa with his big white beard...fantastic value for money...a day out from 10-4pm with lunch included which was huge and two stops for a swim in the crystal clear sea, would definitely recommend it.

“Relaxing Stay” My partner and I stayed here with my daughter her husband and our 3 year old twin grandsons from 6th to 13 May 2012. The villa was lovely with everything you could need for a relaxing in stay in the beautiful sunshine. The boys loved the pool and there were lots of pool toys for them to play with. In a quiet location once you got your bearings you were only 5 minutes away from the harbour and beach in one direction and 5 minutes in the other direction to the main street with the many bars and restaurants. We liked the Windmill and Blue Spice particularly. We only felt the need to venture out during the day on one occasion when we caught the local bus to Protaras. Local bus costs only 1 euro and runs every 15 minutes and the beaches in Protaras are amazing with crystal clear water. Other than that we relaxed by the pool during the day which was lovely. I would definitely recommend the villa if you want a chilled out relaxing break but with the opportunity to explore if you want to.

Sunset Villa
Superb Villa

We stayed here for 11 days in August, myself, my husband, 23 year old daughter, 19 year old son and 10 year old son and we have been to this part of a cyprus now for years as we tend to come every 3 years, as we like to go different places to. But Cyprus is my most favourite place to visit I feel so at home here but this villa was the best we have ever stayed in. From booking Joanne was very helpful and answered any questions she was great. She also booked our transfer with a local company called Empire taxis who I also want to say in the review was fantastic to and I would recommend booking your taxi through Joanne with them, if you need a transfer. With 4 adults and a child been in the house there was still loads of room and the villa was spotless, the welcome pack was much appreciated as we arrived at 2.30 a.m in the morning and nothing was open. While we were there the owner came on holiday herself and she was really nice, she came to say hello and asked if everything was ok and even brought some biscuits which I thought was a really lovely gesture. The pool was superb a fantastic size and was was maintained roughly every 3 days and was also spotless, to be honest I cannot fault anything whatsoever and unfortunately for me, my boys want to go skiing next year in winter and surfing in summer so it may be another few years until we visit Cyprus again but we always go back, as we have been going nearly 20 years now and I will definitely book this villa again and again. The location was the best we have ever had, couple minutes to bars and restaurants and less than five minutes to the beach and even not that far to walk into Protarus which we did a lot to take my younger son to mini golf. To summarise everything, if you want a spotless, superb villa in the perfect spot in Pernera, do not hesitate and book this villa it is fantastic. Thank you to Joanne etc, the taxi company and the owner for making this our best holiday ever. We will be back.see more
Panorama Village
Excellent

Had the most amazing time we stayed at the panorama village in paralimni Cyprus. I would definitely recommend this apartment as it had everything you would need for your stay and it felt very homey. The pool was was just outside our apartment and there was also a gym and tennis courts. Just around the corner was a 24 hour bakery which sells lots of different food they also do a chicken deal for 10 euros which easily feeds 4 people. Great place I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone looking to stay by Kapparisee more
5 Star Award Winning Villa near Beach + Broadband WiFi + Private Pool
Great holiday

Lovely villa, great location and perfect for families. Only a 5 minute taxi ride into Protaras but there’s plenty on the small strip that is literally a 2 minute walk. The supermarket at the end of the complex sells everything. The villa also provides everything you need, even beach towels and a washing machine so you can pack fairly light. Would definitely recommend and go back myself.see more
3 bedroom spacious villa with private pool, Protaras Cyprus
An excellent holiday villa

Well, we head off home later today, after two great weeks in this villa. Having stayed in many types of accommodation in and around protaras, I can honestly say, this has been my favourite. The location is perfect, approx 15 minutes to the strip. The villa is well maintained, and had everything we wanted. Maybe some sky tv channels would be a bonus... the outdoor area is perfect, as is the pool. At any point of the day, you can find either shade or sun. The balcony with its filled in roof, was great for a morning cuppa. I can highly recommended this villa to anyone who is looking.... oh, and we even made a friend of the local cat...see more
