Best beachfront villas and bungalows in Cyprus - Latchi Beach
I love Cyprus, the sea and the sun. Although we don't live in a beachfront villa I'd love to move into one some day. I'd like to have the sea at my doorstep.
One sunny morning we visited Latchi Beach which is only a short drive from us. It's a pebbled beach so don't expect golden sand but it's really long and you can walk on the seaside promenade. It's really relaxing to enjoy the sun and the sea while you taking a long walk there. We really enjoyed it. Apart from the sun and the sea there are beautiful beachfront villas and bungalows located on Latchi Beach. I couldn't stop myself from taking photos of these buildings because they just look so lovely.

Practical information on Latchi Beach
Latchi Beach is a blue flag beach with beautiful mountain scenery so the water is guaranteed pure and the swimming is great. Unfortunately we visited it during winter we will definitely be back during summer too because we have to swim there. It was December and 20-21 degrees Celsius so we really enjoyed it.
Latchi is a really small village that is part of the Polis municipality. In old times it was a small port for shipping carobs. (FYI The word "carob" can be used to describe a specific type of tree or the ground powder made from the pod and seeds of the plant. The tree grows in the Mediterranean and is scientifically called Ceratonia siliqua. Carob flour is used in creating candy, including candy bars, and it is often used as a substitute for chocolate.) There are many pretty restaurants and fish taverns are located on the seaside which were old stone carob warehouses in the past.
It also has a small harbor and it's a great spot for yacht spotting and cafe relaxing. If you want to try fresh fish then this is the perfect place to taste some. I don't think you would find any fresher fish in Cyprus. The good thing about the Latchi that most of the places are open during winter too. If you're a non-smoker sit outside because everybody smokes inside although it's not allowed (it's a shame).
Photos from Latchi
They look absolutely amazing and I have to emphasize that I have nothing to do with them business wise, I don't advertise them. I just like them and I think Latchi is a great place to spend a holiday in Cyprus.
When we visited Latchi in December so these beautiful villas were deserted so I was able to take couple of pictures of them. Then I visited their website too. All of them have a nice private pool and a mature garden. They look pretty well equipped from the outside. The view is absolutely stunning from the balcony, you can watch probably the nicest sunset from there.
There are 10 very exclusive villas and these Mediterranean style villas have been individually painted in bright colors. You can actually spot them from a long distance because of their color. They have two or three bedrooms and they look really cozy. The best thing is that they have the crystal clear blue sea on your doorstep. They are also very private because all of them has surrounding walls. The place called Olympians Latchi Beach Villas.
Let's check them out inside too:
The three bedroom villas have master double bedroom with en suite bathroom, two twin bedrooms with separate shower room and toilet and large balcony and they are all upstairs. While downstairs there's a big open plan kitchen with access to outside terrace with barbeque. There's also a separate dining area and great sunken lounge with traditional fireplace, opening onto terrace and pool, a guest toilet and shower. You can also have TV and CD player are also included (but who cares with the TV when you have probably the best view in on the whole island. The kitchen is well equipped too, it has a dishwasher, washing machine, kettle, toaster, cooker, oven, freezer. Iron and ironing board are also provided.
The two bedroom villas have master double bedroom with en suite bathroom, one twin bedrooms with separate shower room and toilet and large balcony upstairs. Downstairs they have an open plan kitchen with access to outside terrace with barbeque.Everything else is the same.

Latchi beachfront bungalows
I really liked the villas but the bungalows are my favorite. Don't ask me why. They look so cozy and all of them has a beautiful garden with palm trees and with Mediterranean flowers. Almost every single one has a "for rent" sign on it with website, phone and email address so you are able to rent them for a shorter or a longer period. I love that the bungalows are white and the all the windows and doors are in blue. It's a real beach bungalow color.

If you're on holiday in Cyprus don't forget to visit this place because it's really beautiful. You spend a week or two in one of these beach villas or bungalows.
