Cyprus has sunshine for around 300 days each year, making it a great choice for a villa holiday at any time of year. According to Greek mythology, the goddess Aphrodite was born on this beautiful island where villas can be found in both busy resorts and quiet locations.
Holiday villas in Cyprus offer the chance to experience the wonderfully warm Cypriot welcome while enjoying the space and privacy that comes with having your own home in the sun.
With long sandy beaches, a wonderful year-round climate and scenery that ranges from mountains to dramatic coastlines and pine forests, Cyprus makes a great choice for a villa holiday. It has a mix of bustling, nightlife-driven resorts, family friendly hotspots and laid back villages offering a taste of traditional Cyprus. So it’s easy to see how the island can offer the perfect holiday for everyone from romantic couples to hedonistic groups and families with young children.
The majority of villas on offer are towards the west of the island in the Paphos area. Here, in addition to great blue flag beaches, you’ll find golf courses, spa hotels, a plethora of water sports and some great shopping in the more upmarket resorts.
In the east, meanwhile, you’ll find villas in resorts such as Protraras and Nissi Beach, which offer a mix of high-octane nightlife and laid back family activities.
There is also a wide range of historic sites to visit on the island from both Greek and Roman times, as well as the Troodos Mountains with their spectacular views. And if you plan your holiday well, you can even make a day trip by air to Egypt to visit the pyramids.
Planning your trip is easy to do. Why not read some of the tips on our villas page to help you along the way.
