Cyprus—an ideal holiday destination
Cyprus is the third largest island in the Mediterranean, after Sicily and Sardenia. It is
located in the eastern Mediterranean, about 65 km from Turkey, 105 km from Syria, 340
km from Egypt and 385 km from Rhodes. Known for its salubrious climate, there is
much on offer for all kinds of tourists in this land with a rich culture and history.
Great outdoors, exciting water sports like scuba diving; boating and fishing; golf… you
name it. Whatever your age or temperament, you’ll find something to interest and excite
you. Whether you sight-see or shop, relax or play, Cyprus will linger in your memories
forever.
Want to know more about the place? Read on. Here are some quick facts.


Weather
The island has a long, hot and dry summer, a short spring and autumn, and usually a mild
winter. The best time to visit the country is from March to May and from mid-September
to mid-October. July and August constitute the hottest time of the year. However, it is
also the best time to acquire a tan.
Clothes
Cyprus does not have a dress code as such. But, it is advisable to dress respectfully,
especially when you enter religious or public buildings, or visit restaurants and bars.
Language
The traditional language is Cypriot. However, English is widely spoken throughout the
island where the villa is located.
Time
Cyprus is two hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). For most of the year,
Cyprus is one hour ahead of Western Europe, six hours ahead of the US (EST) and eight
hours behind Sydney (Australia).
Currency
The Euro is the currency used in Cyprus, although prices are still quoted in Cyprus




                                              3
pounds (CY£). Turkish lira is used in Turkish-occupied Cyprus (the north of the island).
Travellers cheques and cash can be exchanged at banks, exchange bureaus and hotels.
Car rental
Hired cars are called "Z cars" for their distinctive red licence plates with a "Z" prefix.
You can rent them from the international or national hire car companies (either while
you're there, or before you leave) or from local firms.
Driving
National and International Driving licences are valid in both the north and the south of
the island. Traffic moves on the left, and road signs are on the left. Dipped headlights are
mandatory from 30 minutes after sunset to 30 minutes before sunrise. Front seat belts are
mandatory, and children under five cannot sit in the front.
Buses
Local buses are an excellent way to see Cyprus as the locals see it, if you're not pressed
for time, as they tend to be slow and take circuitous routes.
Taxis
Urban taxis are available 24 hours a day in towns and major resorts and from airports,
and can be booked by telephone or hired from their rank or base.
Cycling
Bikes are easy to rent. Mopeds are very popular and high powered dirt-bikes are also
available for off-road expeditions.
Crime
Crime is hardly a worry. However, you need to take the usual common-sense precautions
regarding items left in cars, handbags and valuables etc. Violent offences are rare.
Health
There are no mandatory vaccination requirements. Health services and standards of
hygiene range from adequate to excellent. There is an English Speaking medical centre
in Pernera.
Children
There is no doubt that Cyprus is a fantastic place for children. International and locally
produced brands of baby foods, disposable nappies, creams and other items are freely
available from local supermarkets and pharmacies.

Terms and Conditions
Please read the terms and conditions posted below carefully before you book your stay at
the villa. They govern all bookings. The person who makes the booking must be at least
18 years of age at the time of the booking.
If you go ahead and book, we would assume you accept these terms and conditions on
behalf of all members of the party and are responsible for all payments due from the
party. In making a booking, you acknowledge that you have read and accepted these
terms and conditions, and agree to abide by the house rules, which will be sent to you
with your confirmation. These can also be found in the villa, and are available upon
request at any time.

   1. The contract is binding between the property owners, the nominated party leader,
       and every adult member of the holiday party.
   2. A 25% deposit (minimum £150) is payable per week for the proposed holiday
       period, and this secures the agreed upon booking period. The balance is due not
       less than 8 weeks prior to the start of the holiday, unless late booking conditions
       have been agreed to earlier. Failure to pay the deposit in full will constitute a
       cancellation of the holiday by the holidaymaker.
   3. Cancellation of the booking should be in writing. If the reason for cancellation is
       illness, or some other extremely unavoidable cause, the owner will repay,
       excluding the deposit, the following amounts: a) More than 150 days before the
       holiday—50% of the rental b) 90–149 days before the holiday—30% of the
       rental c) 60–89 days before the holiday—25% of rental d) 0-59 days 0% of the

   4. Where there is no good enough reason for a refund, no refund will be made. The
       owners will, however, allow deposits to be carried forward against suitable



                                              6
   alternative holiday dates, if these can be arranged, and provided the owners have
   been able to fill the cancelled weeks.
5. Access to the villa is from 5 p.m. on the day of arrival and the villa must be
   vacated by 11 a.m. on the day of departure, unless by prior arrangement, which
   must be confirmed in writing by the property owners. This gives us time to ensure
   that the inventory has been checked and the villa has been cleaned.
6. The property owners or their agents are entitled to ask the holidaymaker to leave
   the property without a refund if in his/her opinion the behaviour of the
   holidaymaker and/or the holiday maker's party is considered unacceptable. We
   ask that you treat locals and your neighbours in a courteous and considerate
   manner at all times.
7. Whilst we have taken every care to provide an accurate description of the
   property, we may make alterations from time to time. The holidaymaker must
   accept that no refunds will be made for such discrepancies.
8. The property owners will endeavour to ensure that the stated property is available
   for the dates contracted. In the event, however, of fire or flood damage, which
   renders the property unavailable, the owner will endeavour to find the
   holidaymaker suitable alternative accommodation. If a suitable replacement
   property cannot be found, the holidaymaker is entitled to a full refund. If the cost
   of the alternative accommodation is higher, the holidaymaker, and not the
   property owners, will be responsible for the difference, which should be covered
   by insurance.
9. The number of persons using the property must not exceed the numbers agreed to,
   and the owner cannot accept more people than the maximum number advertised.
   If the property owners or their agents find that more people than the agreed to
   number have been using the property, they will consider this as a breach of
   contract, and the holidaymakers will be asked to leave immediately without a
   refund. The holidaymakers may also forfeit their security deposit.
10. Pets are not allowed in the property.
11. No smoking is allowed in the property. Smoking is allowed outside, but
   smoking waste must be disposed of responsibly.

   12. The holidaymaker should keep the holiday property and all furniture, fittings and
       effects in the same state of repair, order and cleanliness as at the commencement
       of the holiday (including disposing of rubbish on departure). The property
       owners are entitled to make an additional charge, if this is not the case. The
       holidaymaker is requested to report any such incidents as they occur.
   13. The property owners are entitled to levy a 50-Euro charge if holidaymakers use
       the BBQ, but do not clean it before departure.
   14. The pool can be heated, but this is an optional extra, and must be paid for in
       advance.
   15. The holidaymaker is responsible for all the damage or loss of contents during
       occupation, and is also responsible for paying appropriate compensation to the
       property owners. Where holidaymakers abuse holiday property, they will be
       responsible for making full restitution for damages caused.
   16. It is up to the holidaymaker to make any problem known to the owners or the
       owners' agent immediately, so the owners have a chance to address the situation.
       Unless you report issues immediately, no claim will be accepted. We will do our
       best to rectify any problems as soon as is reasonably possible.
   17. The property owners accept no liability for any loss, personal injury/illness or
       death, regardless of the circumstances.

If you do not wish to accept the above terms and conditions, you are hereby advised not
to proceed with the booking. Otherwise, we shall assume you have accepted these terms
and conditions.
