A stay at Fig Tree Villa provides the perfect relaxing holiday escape.  Air-conditioned, light and airy, the villa is furnished in a contemporary style.  Upstairs are four double bedrooms, two featuring their own balcony overlooking the pool, together with three bathrooms (two ensuite).   The villa can easily accommodate up to 10 guests without it feeling crowded; there’s a large family room downstairs, which is additional to the main living room area, with a large, comfortable sofa bed for an additional 2 persons.  Additional babies are more than welcome and I’ve provided 3 travel cots , 3 high chairs and a baby bath so they’re comfortable.   The main family bathroom with a bath and shower is located upstairs, with additional toilet facilities downstairs.

This luxurious villa also has a large spacious, fully equipped kitchen/diner, with dishwasher, fridge, freezer, cooker and microwave with an additional utility room with an extra freezer, washing machine and water cooler.  The main living room area is open plan with 3 large French windows affording views and access to the private garden and pool area.  Robust free Internet/Wifi is also provided.  Flat Screen TVs and a DVD player are available, along with a large selection of books and board games.

Guests will tend to spend most of their time outdoors.  For security and privacy the rear garden is completely fenced in and is very private, there are no immediate next-door neighbours so it’s quiet and has a lovely serene feel to it.  The garden is ideal for sunbathing, as there are areas of shade and sun throughout the day. Large enough for swimming and water games, the private pool also provides a tranquil place to drift on a lilo, or lounge around on a sunbed and enjoy a leisurely read.   

There’s a large dining table under a shaded arbour enhanced with gorgeous bougainvillea and of course, there’s the essential family sized BBQ for those lazy days just lounging around the pool doing absolutely nothing.  Flora also consists of a passion fruit tree and the fig tree for which the villa is named, both of which will provide abundant fruit if you are lucky enough to visit in August or September.   With fairy lights and solar lanterns, the garden takes on a different dimension at night and I’m sure you will often be found partaking of a cool glass of wine al fresco on the warm summer evenings.

Parking is very easy, with an enclosed and shaded carport, a large drive and plenty of space on the quiet road.   Air-conditioning units are installed in each room, along with oil-fired central heating radiators for the cooler winter months if required.  There is also a log burning open fireplace in the main living area if you’re feeling romantic….

The Larnaca region

Larnaca is a beautiful city on the south coast of Cyprus. It’s known for Finikoudes Beach, a sandy strip in the city centre backed by a palm-lined seaside promenade with lots of bars, restaurants, shops and nightlife.   Great bars line the waterfront at Mackenzie Beach. Just offshore, the M.S. Zenobia wreck is a popular dive site. The 9th-century Church of Saint Lazarus contains the tomb of the saint said to have risen from the dead.  Just 40 minutes drive from the villa are the attractions of Nicosia, Limassol, Ayia Napa and Troodos.  Nearer are the pretty villages of Tochni, Zygi and Lefkara which are well worth a visit.  Just around the corner are Pervolia and Tersefanou with their quaint squares, churches and restaurants.

Kiti

The location of the villa is ideal for your stay in Kiti, although in Cyprus many people do hire cars to explore the island, whilst staying at this villa a car is not necessarily essential if you don’t want to travel far afield.  The pretty village of Kiti is just a short 5 minute walk away and really has everything you will need for a relaxing holiday. Tamala Bar is a local favourite with Cypriots and Tourists alike and is well within staggering home distance after a fun night out. Dont forget to try George’s great English breakfast, huge pork chops and the fabulous Frozen Mojitos!  There are frequent buses into Larnaca, Pervolia and Tersefanou.  From Larnaca beach/seafront you can get buses to Ayia Napa and further afield if desired.

Driving down Kiti’s high street, you could easily be forgiven for thinking you were in quite a major town’s shopping precinct, as this long stretch of road is lined with a wide assortment of shops and stores featuring everything you could possibly need.  There are a number of good restaurants/bars in the village itself, all serving English and Cypriot cuisine.  You will often find karaoke, belly dancing, bouzouki nights and quiz nights weekly in Kiti and nearby Pervolia.  The centre of Kiti and the nearest local supermarket is just 5-10 mins walk away from the Villa and has a recently refurbished pretty Village Square featuring the popular restaurant/bar Jacksons which has lots of outside seating around the square and the church in the summer and is enclosed in winter providing a warm, cozy venue.   In nearby villages such as Tersefanou and Meneou there are many other restaurants and tavernas, offering plenty of choice to eat out.  The nearby main town of Larnaca is very lively all year round and is only 15 min drive or just hop on the local bus.

Perivolia beach (pebbly) and the nearby Faros beach and Kiti Beach (sandy) are 10-minute drive away.  The fabulous Mackenzie Beach with both its great day and night-life is next to the airport and about 10-15 minutes away.  Other local attractions include the camel park at Mazatos and salt lakes at Larnaca.
