Why winter is a great time of year for a Cyprus villa holiday with children?

Going to Cyprus for a winter holiday with children can be a great idea. The Island is an all year round family holiday destination. If you’re looking for fun in the sun this winter, a Cyprus villa won’t disappoint. You may actually find your winter villa holiday more relaxing than a summer vacation…

Milder weather

Children don’t fare well in extreme temperatures. For many families with young children, this rules out peak months of July and August where temperatures can reach an uncomfortable 38 degrees. Cyprus’s warm winter climate is ideal when you’re travelling with kids. The sunshine is almost guaranteed with 320 days of sun per year and temperatures rarely drop below 20 degrees. Great for a winter holiday.

Swimming? During a winter holiday?

While you may think that Cyprus in winter means no swimming – this isn’t true. The sea retains it temperature well into the autumn months and is still warm enough for swimming until the end November. It reaches a low of 18 degrees which older children will still quite happily brave…just make sure they’ve got towels to dry off.

Substantial savings

Family holiday costs have soared in recent years, making a summer holiday unaffordable for even the relatively well-off. It makes sense to take your annual vacation in the winter. Flights, car hire and accommodation all cost considerably less. Cyprus villa rental prices are reduced by more than 50%. Plus, there are lots of special offers in resort to keep the kids entertained. You’ll find 2 for 1s, money off vouchers and many other incentives on attractions and eating out.

Less crowded

You’ll find that the resorts will be less crowded and much safer in the winter months. This makes things a lot easier for parents with young children as it’s much easier to keep an eye on them. Days out will be much less stressful without all the hustle and bustle. You won’t need to queue up for mini golf or ice creams and everyone will be much happier.

Villa vantage

A villa rental means you can enjoy all those home comforts when you travel. This is invaluable when you’re taking a family holiday. You’ll have a fully equipped kitchen and laundry facilities, to make your life that little bit easier. Rain is always a risk on a winter break, even in Cyprus. However, the extra facilities at your villa means there’s plenty for the kids to do indoors. They can enjoy TV, DVDs, games, and an internet connection.
