You should definitely consider a villa with a pool. It can be scorching hot in Cyprus during the summer months from May through to September.

If you have your own private pool, you can do it exactly when you feel like it. And that is the best time to jump into the pool.
Jumping into the pool on a hot summer day is a nice and refreshing feeling and if you have your own pool you will also not be annoyed by other people’s use of it. Or you will not be cleaning it after other people’s kids.
Beach access from your Cyprus villa
We got the pool covered above and it will definitely match your needs in terms of getting cooled off a bit during the day. But let us face it.

What destination should you look for
Even though Cyprus is a small country, the different holiday destinations are quite different. To make sure that your holiday will meet your expectations, it is important that you take this into consideration, when you book a holiday villa in Cyprus.
Here is a short description of the main tourist destinations in Cyprus:
Protaras / Fig tree bay
This is a kid friendly place with quite a few of the great beaches that Cyprus have to offer. Most of the visitors are based in all-inclusive hotels but there are plenty of restaurants in the area. If you’re looking to party it is also only a short ride from Ayia Napa.
Ayia Napa is the party capital of Cyprus during the summer. While the party might not be so lively from 8 am to 1 pm, the city is extremely lively the rest of the day and night. Just don’t go here during the winter if you like fun!
Limassol might be the most cosmopolitan city in Cyprus. The city has a great marina and a nice promenade that covers most of the around 16 kilometres that the city stretches. No matter what time of year it is, you will find plenty of options in and around Limassol.
Paphos is a tourist city. This means that during off season it is sleepy, but as soon as the season starts in late March it really livens up and turn into a great tourist destination. A bit like Cinderella – just reverse. Around Paphos you will find everything from villas in cosy, small villages, tourist cities like Coral Bay or luxury villas in posher areas or next to the countries top golf destinations.
Paphos is also the European Capital of Culture 2017
Larnaca is the home of Cyprus’ biggest airport and is therefore a popular destination. Much like Limassol it features a sea promenade, which combines beach with plenty of busy restaurants, pubs and cafes.
Proximity to the entertainment centre
No matter which destination you choose in Cyprus you will face a big decision. How close to restaurants and other entertainment and the benefits and downsides that include do you want to live?
Either you choose to live right next to the entertainment areas or you can choose a holiday villa in Cyprus that puts a little bit of distance between your holiday home and the entertainment centres (and the noise that is included when you are living right in the middle of it).
Both options have it perks. A villa right next to the entertainment centres of Cyprus offers you easy access and ability to walk back and forth. On the other hand a villa in a more distant and peaceful location offers you solitude, peace and quiet surroundings when you prefer it.
If you choose the latter option you should also rent a car in order to get around. Public transportation in Cyprus is of a different (read; lower) quality than most other European countries and you do not want to spend several hours your holiday waiting for a bus in front of your villa in Cyprus.
Renting a car also provides you with a lot more flexibility in terms of exploring more of what Cyprus has to offer than just the closest beach. No matter whether you are interested in exploring the rural areas, the nature, historical sites or family friendly water parks you will have many options.
