Five-bedroomed Villa Christofi is three levels of holiday luxury. The classic-meets-contemporary-style villa is located just two minutes’ drive from Protaras centre on Cyprus’s stunning eastern coast. When you arrive, you’re greeted with a sleek whitewashed building that backs onto a spacious garden and swimming pool terrace. Find your favourite sunbathing spot on one of the cushioned loungers or cool off in the crystal-clear waters. There’s also a barbecue, outside dining area and outside shower – all overlooking the mesmerising coastal and Mediterranean Sea views.
Inside Villa Christofi there’s an open-plan kitchen, living room and dining area. Plush light grey sofas adorned with colourful cushions create a warm and homely setting, along with bright artwork which stands out against the minimalist natural-coloured walls. There’s a wall-mounted television – perfect for keeping the children entertained – as well as a pool table outside. The dining area has a table and chairs to seat eight as well as a breakfast bar – both near to the large glass doors and windows letting in the natural light and the scenic outdoor views – so meal times are a real treat at this villa.
On this floor is one of the bedrooms, a double with direct access to the veranda. Going up a level, you’ll find the two of the other four bedrooms. There’s a master bedroom with double bed as well as and a twin bedroom. The bedrooms are all equally welcoming and have fitted wardrobes so there’s plenty of space to hang up your holiday attire. On the lower ground floor, you’ll find the fourth twin bedroom, and a large open space which has another two single beds, so the villa can easily sleep up to ten. With two bathrooms too, there won’t be any fighting over the shower in the morning.
Villa Christofi is in Protaras, a popular resort town on Cyprus’s eastern coast. This beautiful area is known for its Blue Flag beaches, friendly local tavernas and historic Hellenistic sites. One of the most scenic beaches is Fig Tree Bay – it has soft sands and crystal-clear waters that are ideal for swimming. If you’re feeling energetic, try some water sports or go snorkelling around the small island, just a short swim from the shore. You could also take a stroll along the coastal boardwalk, stopping for drinks along the way or explore the rock cave at the north end of the beach. For more challenging hikes many coastal trails go north to Louma Beach and south to Lombardi Beach.
Cape Greco National Forest Park with its clear waters and protected pine forest trails is also a must visit. You can walk, cycle or horse ride the route for fantastic nature, sea and coastal cliff views. Or, to the northwest of Protaras is the limestone Church of Profitis Ilias, it marks one end of a nature trail that leads to Konnos Beach. For more culture, you could also head to the capital of Nicosia with buildings including Selimiye Mosque and the pretty old town with its Venetian sandstone walls.
Scuba diver? Cape Greco in Ayia Napa is an excellent choice. It has a variety of caves, rock formations and canyons to explore and is easily reaches via boat trip. When it’s time to take a break from the sea, the small shops and market stalls in Protaras centre are a great place to pick up souvenirs or fresh local produce for your barbeque. In-between, stop for a refreshing drink or bite to eat at one of the restaurants, bars or cafés. By night, try karaoke or sip cocktails in one of the bars.
