Astipalea Villa No 8 is a 2-bedroom villa that has recently been refurnished and is perfect for smaller families. It comes with all the mod-cons you would expect from a modern villa. Both bedrooms are upstairs; the master bedroom has a king-sized bed, en-suite shower / WC and a balcony which overlooks the pool. The second bedroom has twin single beds which can be zipped together to make a super-king bed; it also has an en-suite shower / WC. There is space for cots in both bedrooms and plenty of hanging and storage space for clothes.
Downstairs is open-plan with kitchen, dining area, comfy lounge and a guest WC. There are two sets of patio doors that open out to the pool area. Gates secure the villa and its grounds from the rest of the quiet cul-de-sac. If required, toddler fencing can be put up, with a playhouse and outside toys, at the side of the villa around the gazebo area, which is accessed by one set of patio doors. This enables you to leave that doors open so toddlers can play inside or outside in the fenced area and away from the 8m x 4m pool. If you prefer the beach/ sea don’t worry, it’s just 5 minutes’ walk to the safe and sandy Ayia Triada (‘Holy Trinity’) beach; a little further in the opposite direction is the Golden Coast hotel beach.
A quiet, secluded garden with bordering plants and a large Cypriot style stone built BBQ, which is great for cooking outside. There are sun loungers and a large sun umbrella with the pool. The outside gazebo area has dining for 4 people and there is garden lighting so you dine al fresco late into the evening.
Although plenty of street parking is available there is a driveway if you would like to park the car in the villa grounds and there is a bolted gate to ensure you control access to the garden.
The villa is located in Ayia Triada near Kapparis, a beach resort on the East coast of Cyprus just north of Protaras /Pernera. Kapparis is 45 minute drive from Larnaca airport. An up-and-coming town yet quiet which has all the amenities of a bigger resort without the downsides. It’s only 10 minutes walk on the one direction to the safe sandy beaches and the same distance on the other to several restaurants and shops with more restaurants, bars and supermarkets in neighbouring Kapparis. Lovely beaches to choose from such as Malama bay or Ayia Triada (Trinity beach) is a family beach ideal for toddlers to play at the water’s edge safely. The beach has a small boat jetty which is always good for a stroll with the kids. Golden Coast beach is a little further on the way to Pernera area and is part of a large hotel offering all the normal facilities. You can drive and park at the beaches too if you've got too much to carry. All the beaches are sandy (perfect for paddling) but yet on the edges of the coves are rocky pools & caves to explore! The snorkelling is amazing. Malama and Ayia Triada are very well maintained with sun beds & umbrellas for hire.
Ayia Triada has several traditional restaurants offering local food and exceptional fish.
Kapparis is a very family friendly town counting several restaurants including Italian, Chinese, Cypriot & Greek European as well as bars. Supermarkets, cavas and even butchery are also some of the stores you can find there.
