The villa is in quite an isolated spot but, thanks to Alan's very accurate instructions we found it with no problem even in the dark. The first nice thing was that Alan was there to greet us and explain everything as well as providing an excellent Welcome pack containing lots of goodies.
When we woke up the next morning, we discovered that he certainly hadn't been exaggerating about the view. It was absolutely fantastic, both from within the villa itself and also the terrace and the pool area. The villa was amazing, spotlessly clean and comfortable with everything you would want - TVs, very good internet, comfy beds and the added bonus of the fantastic basement area which we all loved. We took full advantage of the chance to play table tennis and use all the gym equipment.
The pool area was just great and my twin daughters were in there all the time - and the hot tub was a big favourite too.
Alan was full of useful tips regarding places to go and things to see. He even managed to organize a birthday cake for my husband as it was his birthday whist we were there.
Although it is very quiet, the villa is only a ten minute drive from the centre of Protaras and very close to excellent beaches like Fig Tree Bay and Konnos. There are many good places to eat nearby too.
So, all in all, it's hard to think that our holiday could have been bettered. On journeys back to the villa after dark, we could even play hedgehog spotting on the road up - another thing the twins loved!
I've only been back a fortnight and I'm missing it already!
If you are looking for relaxing peaceful holiday in total luxury look no further.
The booking process - owners were responsive to my questions and really helpful and accommodating; no communication issues at all.
The setting of the villa is perfect - central to all local attraction (you need a car).
Villa is located in a very peaceful place; for two weeks we were woken up by singing birds; idyllic.
The house terraces and swimming pool have absolutely amazing views down the sea and mountains; the most beautiful sunset you could imagine.
Villa is fully equipped and very stylish (beautiful furniture) with lots of extra features; wifi, ac in each room, game room.
Bedrooms are spacious and beds are very comfortable so are sofas and the rest of furniture in the house.
Swimming pool is very large and next to it there is jacuzzi (heated); both well looked after and always spotlessly clean.
Villa is surrounded by palm trees and a lovely garden with few sitting area; perfect place to relax away 'from it all'.
When we arrived we were greeted by Alan who showed us around the villa; whole place has a 'wow' factor.
Welcome pack was very generous and unexpected.
The owners were absolutely charming and helped us is any possible way; at the same time very discreet and professional.
Would absolutely recommend and hope to visit again. Beautiful.
This was our third year in a row here. We love the villa, its peaceful location and stunning views. As ever Alan and Cathy were brilliant hosts, available if we needed anything and without being intrusive ensuring our holiday in their villa ran like clock work. It is the little things like a welcome pack when you arrive at 10:30pm so there will be breakfast the following morning; recalling the bottle of fizz we liked from the previous year and the welcome back sheet in the house information which make you feel glad to be back!
The villa still has the wow factor. It really does feel like a home from home. We were delighted to see the road up to the villa had been improved so no potholes to negotiate! The internet access remains excellent and the TV now has sky sports and BT sport which was a welcome surprise! Not that it should matter but if wished there is full access to all the British Television.
The villa grounds and pool are superb. We love the tranquility of the area the villa is in. The hot tub is also a family favourite while the sun sets with stunning views out to sea. Inside the villa also does not disappoint. it is modern and clean with all mod cons required for a comfortable stay.
I hired a mountain bike this year and cycled some of the trails on the hill the villa is situated. Excellent fun and I would recommend this to other holiday makers. Alan can put you in touch with a nice company who do good bike hire rates.
Importantly for us the kids were happy with plenty to keep them entertained in the local area,
In fact we have already booked for 2017! Counting the weeks down already.....

After staying at villa panorama in 2014, when we booked to return to protaras there was no other place in our minds to stay.
We love it here. Location is ideal for our family as it's very quiet and relaxing but also close enough to the lively protaras strip to enjoy a night out.
Alan and Cathryn once again were amazing.
Had one very slight problem with the water one day, one text to Alan and it was solved in minutes.
Villa was in immaculate condition as was the last time we visited.
Rooms are big and spacious. Very comfy beds and the added table tennis in the basement was a huge thumbs up for us. Kept the kids entertained for hours.
We will definitely be returning in the near future.
Thank you Alan and Cathryn again for letting us stay in your fabulous villa.
See you very soon.

P.s big baby hugs off Teddy for his surprise presents. He loved them!
We were in Cyprus to attend our nieces wedding, but as we'd only got married a few weeks previously ourselves we wanted somewhere that was secluded, relaxing and offered a touch of luxury. This villa is all of those things and so much more.
The villa itself is incredibly spacious and very well appointed. We found the kitchen to be well stocked with all of the needed pots, pans, utensils and other equipment you might need. It also included a dishwasher, washer and fridge-freezer. Whilst housework wasn't the top priority it was nice that we could get some of our things cleaned before packing to head home and it made our job so much easier once back in the UK.
Elsewhere around the house you had television with all of the UK channels as well as internet. There were also air conditioning units in all of the rooms, with the exception of the basement which, to be fair, didn't really need air conditioning as it generally maintained a cooler temperature.
Outside the villa was a pool which was simply stunning. My wife and I aren't usually ones for sitting by the pool, but it says a lot that we often spent 6 or more hours a day just relaxing by the pool and taking a regular dip. With temperatures up in the low 30's we often found ourselves using the pool as early as 8 AM and as late as 10 PM. It was so nice and refreshing to be able to take advantage of the pool as needed.
The villa is stunning and the pictures don't do it justice. But above that it's the level of care offered by Alan and his wife Cathryn that really make this an A* accommodation. I dealt with Alan via e-mail and phone for over 18 months and during that time nothing was too much trouble. He really did go above and beyond what I would expect and we are very grateful for all of his assistance; even during our stay he very quickly responded to SMS messages with great advice. I really can't commend them highly enough. Absolutely superb.
We were also very grateful for the welcome pack they provided on arrival; a lot of the regular things you need when you arrive were all kindly provided and placed in the fridge. A lovely touch and once we also very much appreciated.
Not a negative; but one thing to note is that this villa is VERY secluded so hiring a car is a must. It's only a 5-10 minute drive down to Protaras but it would be a very long walk.
We will definitely be back to visit this villa again and we had a number of guests who visited us whilst we were there. They were also very complimentary about the villa so I suspect they may be coming with us when we next return to this beautiful Villa on this amazing island.
