BOUTIQUE holiday accommodation specialists Your Nice Apartment has added #Cyprus to its portfolio.
‘For years, the accommodation options in Cyprus were limited,’ says Simon Walker, the agency’s co-founder. ‘You either travelled there for a traditional fly-and-flop holiday in large, often dated high rise apartments in coastal resorts or you headed for the foothills and interior, where accommodation often resembled a holiday home your Grandma had styled.
‘In the 15 years since the launch of agri-tourism, though, the accommodation offering has matured. What we wanted to do was curate a property collection which captured the zeitgeist, offering stunning beach front apartments – a slice of California cool – but also work with a new wave of holiday home owners in traditional villages, those who have understood the need to transform historic homes into seriously stylish holiday retreats to attract the UK holiday market.’
The company expects to see a rise in tourists during September and October, when Cyprus is one of the best places in the Mediterranean to catch late summer sun.
‘Nowhere in the Med is warmer or more reliably sunny than Cyprus in September and October,” says Mr Walker, ‘with nine hours of sunshine a day and temperatures of up to 28C. The sea, having been warmed by the searing heat during July and August is like a warm bath.’
Properties range from Delphinium, a £32 per night apartment in Larnaca sleeping four, to the Beach House in Konnos Bay sleeping six from £142 a night.
The agency, which also has properties in southern France and Ireland, will be launching a range of add-ons such as walking, cycling, and wine tours.
Its Cyprus launch coincides with the introduction of UK-Cyprus flights by budget airline Cobalt Air.
