Where to Stay for 5* Luxury in Cyprus with the Kids

October Half Term is one of the trickier times to book a warm family friendly holiday abroad. It can be hard to find places (with a short flight) where you will get the sun, but equally where it won’t matter too much if you don’t as there are other things to do. However this year I think I may have managed it!

 We are heading off to Cyprus the southernmost island in the Eastern Med, where apparently Summer lasts longer and you get guaranteed sunshine well into November.  It sounds like the perfect place to get away to at October half term, and where better to stay than Limassol, with 3 nights at the Four Seasons Cyprus and 3 nights at the Amathus, both 5* Luxury Hotels right on the beach.  You only have to look at a few photos on the website to discover that they both look absolutely amazing! I can’t wait to get myself into this pool and us all onto this beach!

If you followed by blog earlier this year you will know that we are huge fans of Greece already. We have spent the last few summers in Sivota and Lefkas and can’t wait to find out what Cyprus has to offer, apart from its wonderful hotels and beaches.  I know that once I get to Cyprus I will struggle to be torn away from this beautiful view, but I also know there is much more of the Island to explore.

I talked to Visit Cyprus earlier this month and have already planned a day out at Fassouri Water Park, a drive into the hills and a morning visiting Apesia Hills Donkey Sanctuary.  If I combine these trips with meals out, lying on the beach and playing with the kids in the fabulous pools (with water slides!!!) then I think we have the perfect half term break, don’t you!

Full Review to follow when we are back!!

    […] Flights into Paphos and Limassol from airports across the UK make Cyprus an easy location to get to although flight prices do become quite extreme during the half term break and you need to book early to get a decent deal! I can’t wait to go there this October. […]

    Sounds a fantastic half term break Karen. I have been looking at Cyprus for next summer. Enjoy the sunshine. We are off to Scotland which I suspect might not be as sunny x
