If you’re looking for a tranquil stay near the beach, then look no further! Villa Dardanus has everything you’ll need for a family-friendly stay, and more. Enjoy the perks of having a large outdoor swimming pool and being within walking distance from a secluded sandy beach. It’s located within a villa resort near the small town of Polis. The charming area is renowned for its laid-back tavernas, Blue Flag beaches and craggy peninsula – a nature reserve that’s said to be the most beautiful part of the whole island.
The three en-suite bedrooms are all equally spacious and stylish, the two double bedrooms being conveniently located on the first floor, allowing some privacy and tranquillity away from the living areas. One of them has double doors leading out onto the roof terrace with plenty of places to sit and relax in the sun or the shade. The only twin bedroom is located in the ground floor, perfect for those with mobility issues. With Wi-Fi throughout, as well as air conditioning, the villa is truly designed for a comfortable, home-from-home stay.
The exterior is traditionally Mediterranean in style with stone walls and dark wood features, while the interior is elegantly modern with whitewashed walls and natural-coloured furnishings. There’s a spacious living room, equipped with plush sofas and large windows letting in the beautiful light. With a fully equipped kitchen (dishwasher, microwave and more), as well as a charming gazebo prepared for alfresco dining, you can make the most of your time at Villa Dardanus.
When you’re not relaxing on a sun lounger or taking a dip in the private swimming pool, the charming Cypriot village of Argaka awaits. It’s in-between the sparkling sea and the craggy mountain slopes, and is home to welcoming tavernas, restaurants and bars, as well as a sandy beach with crystal-clear swimming waters. By day, wander along the quaint cobbled streets or relax on the sand. By night, grab your camera and snap the majestic sunset views over the Akamas Peninsula.
Located within a luxurious villa resort with access to a private residents’ beach, Villa Dardanus features a prime location. Being set within the unspoilt area of Argaka, it is only a few kilometres away from the town of Polis, in the foothills of the Troodos mountains. This charming town in north-west Cyprus lays on simple pleasures and traditional village life. Days here revolve around the soft sand and pebble beach and the square, which is bordered by shops, cafés and laid-back tavernas. Its surrounds include the beautiful Akamas peninsula – a nature reserve – that’s home to a myriad of wildlife, including birds, reptiles and turtles.
You can explore this beautiful nature reserve via buggies, quad bikes or 4X4 tours. The park contains valleys, gorges and wide sandy bays. Stop off at Lara Beach – a famous nesting spot for the green turtle. The beach is remote and is the perfect spot for swimming or relaxing on the sands.
For more family-friendly days out, the Baths of Aphrodite with its natural pool (you can swim in it) and Avaka Gorge – a popular hiking destination with a dramatic canyon are also well worth visiting. At the latter, keep an eye out for wild goats in the mountains.
And if you're just looking to unwind, Polis also has a sweeping, crescent-shaped beach that has shallow waters that are perfect for swimming. You’ll find plenty of opportunities to take part in water sports like snorkelling, scuba diving and jet skiing. Just a few kilometres west is the small town of Latchi with its boat-lined harbour and restaurants serving a wide choice of food including freshly-caught fish. There’s a water sports centre and boat hire there too. From Latchi port, boats cruise the peninsula and stop at Cyprus’s famous Blue Lagoon where you can swim and relax in the amazing azure blue water. Some boats also prepare a traditional Cypriot barbecue with slow-cooked meat.
