With Cyprus deemed one of the safest European countries during the coronavirus pandemic, there is little more appealing than spending lazy summer days in the sunshine while escaping from the daily grind. And where better to do so than a gorgeous villa? Here are three dreamy options set to impress even the most discerning traveler.

 

1. Villa Avgoustis, Pachna

Nestled amid a citrus tree garden in the sleepy Limassol district village of Pachna, the meticulously designed Villa Avgoustis (pictured in the cover photo) is the perfect place to just escape from it all, with a whopping five bedrooms to accommodate an extra-large group.

 

 

The open plan kitchen/living room fitted with stone walls and beamed ceilings perfectly fuses rustic with contemporary and opens out into a terrace and dreamy private pool. The outdoor space comprises shaded seating areas and sun terraces for the ultimate sunbathing session. Want to venture further afield? You can reach the closest beach within 15 minutes, the pine-clad Troodos Mountains within 30 minutes, and the buzzing centre of Limassol in 25 minutes.

 

 

2. Villa Cabernet, Vouni

A relatively new establishment in the Limassol winegrowing village of Vouni, this gorgeous place – which first opened its doors last summer – is set to make all your holiday dreams come true.

 

 

Villa Cabernet has been beautifully restored and the swimming pool is a real stunner, with a BBQ area in the garden meaning you can spend the evenings cooking under clear starry skies. Do head here with family or friends as the villa sleeps four people. And be sure to make the most of the surrounding vine-covered countryside, as well as the picture-perfect historic village of Vouni itself.

 

 

 

3. Casa Ariadne, Potamitissa

The little village of Potamitissa, 5km from Kyperounta recently welcomed a cute little gem going by the name of Casa Ariadne.

 

 

With views out across the rugged mountains, you can enjoy the most tranquil time out in this two-bedroom beauty, oozing traditional charm. Cook a meal in the fully equipped kitchen, and dine al fresco and you take in the panorama from the lovely balcony. When adventure beckons, take a trip up to the rugged peaks of Troodos Mountains or a drive down to cosmopolitan Limassol.
