The traditional town of Paralimni is the largest town in the free Famagusta district, located approximately 40 minutes drive from Larnaca airport. Its town square has many good shops (including Marks & Spencer), restaurants, cafes, bars and three churches, the oldest of which houses a museum. Just beyond the square are beautiful gardens and fountains with an open air theatre. Retaining much of its old charm with local crafts, souvenir shops and picturesque narrow streets, it is not unusual to come across fishermen quietly mending their nets in the shade of the vine-covered courtyards. A regular bus service runs along the coast from Paralimni to Protaras and then on to Ayia Napa.
If you are looking to get away from it all and relax with your family in privacy, than a holiday villa would be the ideal choice for you. By renting a private villa you will have your own kitchen, living/dining room, bedroom and in many cases your own private swimming pool. Renting a villa provides you, not only, with more space and privacy but is also a more economical option rather than staying at a small hotel room. A villa can usually accommodate a minimum of 4 people, and the rental price is charged per week making it more cost-effective than staying at a hotel.
