We love Cyprus and the Protarus/Penera area and we found Villa Christina about seven years ago and we have come back every year since, sometimes more than once a year.
The most amazing thing about Villa Christina is the outside space. It is totally private and not overlooked at all, the pool is huge and the owner cleans it every 3 days in an evening and also tends to other matters should he have to. There is a BBQ and plenty of patio area to eat outside; my husband thinks he is a bit of a chef and he cooks in the villa and we eat outside most evenings.
The villa itself is a typical Cypriot villa, i.e. flat roofed and rustic and is full of personality. It has wooden furniture, table cloths, throws, pictures, photos and ornaments that for us form part of the Cypriot experience and reflects the warmth and friendliness of its owners.
The two bedrooms have air conditioning which is great and have wooden beds and wardrobes and shelves full of bed linen and towels. There are large windows and patios doors in the living space and we have them open most of the time to let the breeze through. The living room/kitchen/ dining room is open plan with plenty of space, with a wooden table and chairs to eat inside if you wish. In addition to this there is a sofa which can also be used as a bed, couple of chairs, a TV, DVD player, HIFI, book shelf with plenty of books and numerous games / toys for children, including a pool table and table tennis table.
The kitchen has everything you need, i.e. big fridge, microwave, washing machine and plenty of crockery and cutlery and there is also an electric bottled water machine which you can fill up at the nearby garage for 1euro (bargain).
The villa is always clean and tidy when we arrive and we respect this by maintaining it during our holidays.
There are some very good tavernas nearby in Penera, Paralimni and Protarus which we have become accustomed to and love and there are plenty of shops and bars within a five minute drive.
The neighbours are really friendly and we have met up with the owners on many occasion for drinks and socialising.
If you are looking for relaxation and total chill time then we highly recommend Villa Christina.
