About Sharron & Paul Tyas
We are a hard working family of four living in Chester, UK. We wanted a quiet place in a beautiful setting where we could holiday together, relax, recharge the batteries and make some great family memories. My two kids are teenagers so we had to be somewhere in easy reach of excitement! To keep the kids happy we fitted high speed Wifi internet access. We decided on the lovely village of Alethriko as it met all these criteria and more. The apartment has been very well furnished and equipped as our second home with a view to being used by family and friends. Whilst the three double rooms and bed settee in the lounge will allow this very large apartment to sleep 8, I believe that it is perfectly suited to parties of six or under.
Sharron & Paul Tyas purchased this Apartment in 2010
Why Sharron & Paul Tyas chose Alethriko
My family were raised on edge of the Pennines in Yorkshire, a beautiful countryside setting. We were looking for a similar feeling for our second home and found Alethriko village set next to pretty hills with a church in the distance. Restaurants and shops are literally metres away from the apartment, local beaches are close by and Makenzie beach and Finikoudes beach are only 15 mins away by car, both of these beaches are lined with Palm trees and gorgeous restaurants. Ayia Napa and Troodos Mountains are all easily reached for days out! Alethriko is close to Larnaca airport (10 mins), we fly into either Paphos or Larnanca to get the best value flights. From history to beautiful beaches to luxury shopping to great restaurants & wonderful weather Cyprus has it all and we love it!

Comfortable apartment although the complex site was in need of a bit of love and attention.
The complex is half empty leaving an impression of being a bit down at heel. However the apartment was nicely furnished and all the necessary facilities were provided. We used it as a base to discover the Island and the location had easy access to the motorway and Larnaca Airport. It was not a major issue for us however the satellite TV requires some attention.
Great 2 week stay. Very easy drive from the airport. Would highly recommend the apartment to family and friends along with the bakery and Kokos Taverna both only a 5 minute stroll. We also braved the pool which was very chilly in March! The local residents thought we were mad! Had trips to Nicosia, Limassol, Larnaca, Troodos Mountain, Konnos Beach, Protaras, Lefkara and a full day at Waterworld Waterpark in Ayia Napa.. Loved Cyprus and hope to return again very soon.
Very enjoyable holiday, apartment was equipped with everything you need suits every age group. Home from home prefect for my parents of 92 & 85 thanks again
Top Apartment, Excellent Location
A fantastic apartment in a quiet block, located in a good position. The apartment is well specified and has everything you'll ever need, including beach gear and pool inflatables!
The village is quiet, with an excellent taverna (Kokos) which offers fantastic value; it's also only a short drive to Larnaca with its great range of restaurants (Mititzis is not to be missed!). There is a quiet local beach about 10-15 minutes away down an unmade road towards Kiti that never gets too crowded, whilst the more commercial Mackenzy Beach is within easy striking distance.
All in all - highly recommended!!!
Relaxing and peaceful holiday!
What a lovely holiday we had! The apartment was just perfect for us. We travelled with our kids of ages 5/5/9/11 and my husband's mother and grandmother. It was easy for the great-grandma to move along and more over, she enjoyed the shadow on the balcony in the afternoon whilst the others spent time by the always sunny pool. The pool was kept nice and clean and the kids just loved playing around (well, to be honest, we parents played with them as well :) ). We were nearly the only ones using the pool, so for the people like us, willing to avoid crowds, this apartment is absolutely the best possible choice. The apartment itself was in perfect condition, beds and showers etc were of great quality. We cooked daily, washed laundry and lived a normal family life just like home and there was everything we needed (if something is to ask for, we would have liked to use a vacuum cleaner at times and a filter-coffee-maker).The village of Alehtriko has an excellent location, because it's a short drive to almost anywhere. We enjoyed also the neighbouring village Anglisides - there were three cute boutiques to buy clothes for the kids, a nice supermarket Smart and a tavern by the main road worth a visit (it wasn't fancy, but excellent food and service, no name label either).The custom service has been really pleasing both from the owners side of the apartment as well as from the property managers side as well. We are starting to plan our 2017 holiday and it will be difficult to find accommodation as good as this one. In fact, our nine-year-old son, who cried so much when the holiday was over, thinks that it will be best just to come back and forget other countries completely! Thank you Paul and Sharon, you made our summer!
Great Apartment in a Lovely Village
The apartment is very nice with great air-conditioning and the luxury of British plug-sockets. Feels like a true home-from-home. Ideally located a short drive from Larnaca and the airport. Convenient lower-level parking means you don't have to get into a hot car. The beds and sofas were comfortable and the kitchen equipped with modern appliances. The pool was always kept spotless.
Special interest holidays:
Just 5 minutes drive away is the newly opened Olympic standard shooting range in Klavdia, (hosts to the European Championship Shotgun event which is run by the European Shooting Confederation).
Larnaca town has several beautiful sandy beaches with sun beds, umbrellas, water sports, scuba diving, snack bars and restaurants. Other quiet beaches which are ideal for a picnic are 10 minutes drive away and the famous golden sands of Ayia Napa and Protaras are 40-50 minutes drive. A great central location for exploring.
Larnaca airport is 10 minutes drive, Paphos is only 1 hour 15 minutes.
A car is recommended so that you can explore the many attractions near by.
The beauty of Alethriko is that while the village is so tranquil and idyllic, it is only a 5 minute drive to the main motorway and centrally placed on the island for anyone who wants to explore the many things Cyprus has to offer with ease. Larnaca 15 minutes, Larnaca Airport 15 minutes, Nicosia 40 minutes, Limassol 25 minutes, Ayia Napa 40 minutes, Paphos 1 hr 15 minutes, Troodos Mountains 1 hour.
