Sit back and relax on the spacious patio or take a swim in the communal pool which is located within metres of the patio. The pool is close enough to toss a coin into from the verandah, but we ask that you do not try ! The pool and main rear communal areas are gated / fenced off with railings to retain its private status and access is gained to the gates from the either side of our apartment block. The current view on the pool side of the apartment ( ie, from the verandah ) is to the sea and Famagusta Bay and the ghost town of Famagusta.
The apartment is West facing, therefore, during the summer months, from sunrise until about 0900, part of the patio is in the shade, allowing you to enjoy breakfast in the shade in the early morning. However, for guests wishing to have breakfast in the warmth of the early morning sun, just move your loungers to the edge of the verandah and you can enjoy uninterrupted sunshine from dawn to dusk.

SUPERMARKETS AND SHOPS
There are a number of supermarkets close to the apartment, details of which can be found within our information pack in the apartment. These include 2 large U.K style supermarkets, from which you can purchase almost anything from groceries to sunbeds. These sell the same produce / brands as you would find in England.
There is also a 24 hour bakery, located approx 1km from the apartment. The bakery stocks a good range of essential foods as well as traditional breads and pastries. We have found the bakery very useful, particularly when arriving in the early hours of the morning, for purchases of milk, etc.
Generally, most restaurants in Cyprus are cheaper than they are in the UK.
Cyprus has a wide range of different international cuisines available unlike some other holiday islands you may have sampled, all at reasonable prices. We have tried out many local tavernas, which offer traditional Cypriot dishes of Kleftiko, Stifado, Moussaka and the bellybursting, mouthwatering Mezes. Cypriot food is at its best in the many genuine tavernas and you’ll be more than pleasantly surprised if you venture into one of these for both food and atmosphere. There is a huge variety of restaurants to suit all tastes and pockets in the tourist areas.
We have included a list of suggested restaurants in the Kapparis and surrounding areas in our information pack in the apartment.
The apartment is in a quiet area. It has access to a shared swimming pool, a west facing garden, a west facing patio area, sea views, panoramic views. There is private parking with the outside areas of the house having external lighting.
