My long stay in Cyprus villas to rent for a wedding party

I had never been to Cyprus before, until last summer, when my cousin Kathryn decided to have her wedding ceremony there. Her husband came up with the idea to get married in Cyprus after seeing so many beautiful pictures online from beach weddings held in the sunset there. As the maid of honour, I had to help her with all the fine details for the “big day” so we thought it would be a good idea to go out earlier and have a longer stay in order to arrange all the final details in person before the big day, and of course, to also enjoy some quality time there before the wedding. Cyprus is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the Mediterranean and offers a wide variety of activities  as you can combine a relaxing beach holiday by the sea with more adventurous activities such a water sports or rock-climbing in the mountains or cycling on the many routes available.
We decided we should stay in one of the available Cyprus villas to rent mainly because we were planning to stay so long, and so by renting a Cyprus villa our stay would be less expensive than a hotel and we also felt it would be easier to deal with all the wedding preparations in a larger space. The wedding was going to take place in Protaras therefore we searched for villa rentals in Protaras so we would be close by the venue also. When looking online, I found many good quality self-catered villa providers offering great services and low-budget prices and I was very impressed.  We booked a four-bedroom villa with private pool and garden in Ayia Thekla area. It was amazing! We had a great time with the whole family in the run up to the big day, and we organised an awesome barbeque party by the pool a few days after the wedding and everyone had a lot of fun! We really enjoyed our stay in one of the many available Cyprus villas to rent and we would definitely recommend it to all our friends and relatives and readers of this blog.

Summer holidays in Ayia Napa: discover villas to rent in Ayia Napa

Ayia Napa is one of the most popular holiday destinations in Cyprus offering a wide range of accommodation alternatives. Apart from booking a luxurious sea-view hotel room in one of the five stars hotels which are located right on the sea side, there is also a selection of villas to rent in Ayia Napa and the nearby areas from many good quality villa providers. When researching on the internet for places to stay with friends for our Ayia Napa holiday this year,  we decided to try a villa rental for a change.

We found many good websites offering villas to rent in Ayia Napa at affordable prices, with a relaxing and more private environment, for young couples like us who wanted to spend some time with good friends. We chose to stay in a seaview, three bedroom villa with a private pool, located in the area of Ayia Thekla only seconds from the beach and ten minutes away from the city centre of Ayia Napa.  Ayia Napa apparently used to be a small fishing village with few residents, at the south-eastern cost of the island, named after the Venetian monastery located in the middle of the town. Now it has become one of the most famous holiday resorts attracting thousands of tourists from all around the world. Apart from being a destination for family holidays, Ayia Napa has become particularly famous for its night life and its great clubbing experience. We visited several clubs there and had an amazing time and a lot of great cocktails. It was a good job we chose to stay in one of the villas to rent in Ayia Napa after all, as we had no worries about waking up early for breakfast after our very late nights! Our friends loved Ayia Napa as it was the first time visiting, and they will definitely spend another summer holiday there, as will we!

Large Family? Choose villas for rent in Cyprus for your summer holiday!

Summer holidays are always the most highly anticipated ones of the year as most of us love going to a place where we can enjoy beautiful beaches and some warm sunny weather. For the last few years, we chose to stay in the beautiful island of Cyprus for our summer holidays and because we wanted to enjoy a relaxing holiday we decided to stay in one of many villas for rent in Cyprus in the area of Ayia Napa. As a mother of four, I want my children to spend their holidays in a friendly casual environment  where they can have fun together with us, making our stay as a family memorable. When you have a big family with 4 kids at a young age you need something convenient and affordable for holidays, especially for long stays, and many hotels do not provide facilities big enough to house you all together, and certainly not at reasonable prices as you often have to invest in 2 rooms to accommodate everyone. So we prefer villas for rent in Cyprus as the island offers a wide range of activities for kids and parents as well.
Usually, we choose to rent a villa with a private pool so the kids can play safely together and we can keep an eye on them easily. Spending our summer in a holiday villa also means we can do things like making breakfast at our own pace without any worries of waking up very early, play board games all day long and of course compete with each other on who is going to make the most impressive dive in the pool! When I was searching for suitable places to book, there were many websites offering great deals on villas for rent in Cyprus in beautiful coastal areas like Ayia Napa and Protaras. This year we chose a spacious villa with a private pool and private garden, including 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, in Ayia Napa. Ayia Napa is a cosmopolitan area with excellent beaches offering many activities for family holidays including a big amusement park where we and the kids had a lot of fun and  the popular Ayia Napa World Water Park where we had a great time together.  As a family, we had an amazing summer holiday in Ayia Napa and we really enjoyed our stay in Cyprus, we would definitely recommend it.

Great holidays with great friends in Cyprus holiday villas

Cyprus is one of the most beautiful islands in the Mediterranean! For those of you looking for adventurous and active holidays including water sports, cycling and mountain rides, Cyprus is an excellent choice of destination.  Last time we stayed there with friends, we chose to stay in the Protaras area as we had been told by friends that it has great beaches and that you could find great deals on Cyprus holiday villas, with properties very close to the beach. We arranged to stay in a spacious villa for rent in Cyprus which accommodated 8 people and had great facilities and everything we needed was in there on arrival. There were many good sites to choose from with Cyprus holiday villas for rent and we simply chose one that had everything we wanted including a private pool, 3 bathrooms, 4 bedrooms and they provided towels, a welcome basket and a cleaner once a week. We actually preferred staying in a holiday villa as it ends up cheaper for longer holidays and we could do many things there with other friends who were also around, like have barbeque and pool parties, or just invite others to relax by the pool. Also we didn’t have to worry about waking up very early in the morning for breakfast as we made our own breakfast every morning together and took turns washing up. We decided to rent a couple of cars too and we took trips around the area of Protaras and nearby Ayia Napa, where we had some great times. You can also find Cyprus holiday villas for rent in Ayia Napa which is very popular and offers some great clubs and bars for a fun night out. Make sure you also visit the Cape Greco area which is a beautiful picturesque place with spectacular sunsets for those who like to take great photos and you will also find cycling, riding and amazing places to see for those who enjoy diving. As friends, each of us has different interests, so we wanted to spend our holidays in a place where we could combine everything and we can’t recommend Protaras and Cyprus holidays enough!

Amazing holidays for the whole family in one of Ayia Napa villa rentals

Every year there is a big discussion at home about where to go for our summer holidays! Our teens love going to a coastal area where they can enjoy the beach, do water sports and have a variety of things to do. On the other hand, my husband and I prefer something more relaxed and private in a warm and sunny place. The best place we know that combines these two is Ayia Napa in Cyprus.  Ayia Napa, is a summer holiday resort in Cyprus very famous for its beautiful beaches, (Nissi Beach highly recommended) and its cosmopolitan character appeals to the young ones. Because we wanted to combine privacy with pleasure, we decided that Ayia Napa villa rentals would be the best answer to keep everyone happy. We chose to stay in a villa with a private pool in the Ayia Thekla area, only a few steps from the beach. The location of the villa was excellent as it was only a short distance from the town’s main square where you can visit the beautiful medieval monastery or young adults can go for clubbing as the main nightlife with the top bars and clubs are all around here. Last but not least, the Waterworld Waterpark in Ayia Napa is an excellent place for fun, especially if there are teens or kids in the family! We had such an amazing time there and we spent the whole day together. There are many companies offering a wide range of Ayia Napa villa rentals to choose from depending on your needs, we researched a few and found the property that we liked and easily booked online. And even though Ayia Napa is very popular for its nightlife, it is very popular with families and is we certainly saw that its becoming well known for family holidays as well.

Great family holiday in Protaras at one of Protaras villa rentals in Cyprus

Our family holiday last year in Protaras was great. Protaras is a lovely coastal area in Cyprus with beautiful white sandy beaches.  We would spend most of the day at the beach and also enjoyed doing water sports at Fig Tree Bay. It was a really nice experience for the whole family, including our teenage kids, and also exciting especially doing the “fly fish” which was like a rollercoaster in the water! At night, we also used to enjoy delicious corn on the cob cooked on the charcoal by locals along the side of the road in the main village square whilst enjoying a relaxing walk (highly recommended!). Last year, instead of going to a hotel which is what we normally do, we choose to stay at a villa right next to the beach as we find villa holidays are much cheaper for larger families who need more than 1 hotel room and we’ve always found they offer all the necessary facilities for a great stay and it means you are not told what time to eat breakfast, lunch or have to eat from same menu every day for 2 weeks. When we were searching, we found many companies offering Protaras villa rentals to choose from depending on your budget and what you need from your villa. One more tip – make sure you get car rental packaged in too so you can get around and do more things in Protaras and neighbouring Ayia Napa.
