Sotira (meaning 'saviour' in Greek) is a warm, welcoming place and one of Cyprus's historic 'red soil' villages located a 2 minute drive from the city of Paralimni on the South East Coast of the historic Famagusta province.
The village has an abundance of traditional tavernas, restaurants, bars, bakeries & boutiques. Whether you're looking to shop, eat or just relax over a coffee, beer or glass of wine whilst watching the villagers pass by; it's just a short walk from your front door.
Sotira's cuisine has such a strong reputation that many people make the journey from places such as Agia Napa & Protaras to sample the traditional fayre.
Sotira has the charm of a small village but a deceiving diversity of amenities. The village is steeped in history, There are a number of churches and basilicas some of which contain frescos from the 12th century.
You will not fail to be impressed by a weekend evening in one of the tavernas playing greek live music. Here, you will be absorbed by the atmospheric culture of eating and drinking slowly to the backdrop of live traditional Greek music whilst local guests haphazardly rise from their dining tables to proceed to dance with a rhythmic and tasteful demeanour.
It is not uncommon to see families, including young toddlers gathered around the restaurant tables until the small hours; dining here is a very family embracing activity.

Unlike the seasonal resorts such as Agia Napa, Sotira's agricultural heritage makes it an all year destination. If the heat of high season is not your preference, then there are many things to do between January-March & October - December when the milder blue sky temperatures allow more vigorous activities such as sea fishing, rugged walks, or even skiing in the Troodos Mountain range (January to March, dependant on snowfall).
Villavanti is just a 2 minute drive away from the city of Paralimni which offers a wide range of facilities one would expect from a city including large supermarkets, bars, restaurants, banks etc.
Trips to paralimni offer that city break atmosphere where contemporary boutiques stand adjacent to distressed old tavernas and where your senses are treated to the scent of fresh coffee, the sound of church bells and the interaction of people traversing the square. Here you will also find the large scale supermarkets of Kokinnos, Orphanides, Carrefour and Xenis on the periphery of the old town.
Just a 6 minute drive from the complex are the inimitable Fig Tree Bay and world famous Nissi Beach where the 'azure blue' Mediterranean sea await your arrival.
Snorkelling around the secluded clearwater coves of Cape Greko is popular and you will see water sport excursions and boat trips to the uninhabited city of Famagusta advertised widely throughout the region.
Water World (water park) is a family favourite and is a short journey from Sotira.
Whether you prefer the bustling night life or evening seafront walks with the family Agia Napa & Protaras are a short distance away.
The Famagusta district spans the full southern edge of Cyprus where infinite coastal views are breathtaking. Beaches, coves, mountainous walks, historic architectural gems and a National Park make it more than just a coastal holiday.
In fact, Cyprus is one of the unique locations of the world where you can ski (Troodos Mountains) and sunbathe (any of the idyllic beaches) at the same time of the year.
It is a region filled with history including the 'ghost Town' of Famagusta which has lain unoccupied since the Turkish / Greek conflict came to a head in 1974. This can be best viewed from the sea where boat trips take sail along the coast from Protarus / Agia Napa to Famagusta whilst telling the story over a BBQ.
Konnos Bay is a shallow shelved bay providing ideal swimming conditions for young families. water sport activities include parascending, water skiing, canoeing and jetskis.
Cape Greko is a wild and rugged National Park which is elevated above the surrounding bays offering uninterupted views of the Med.
Nissi Beach and Fig Tree Bay are two of the most picturesque beaches, not only of the island but of the world.
There are also many highstreets and esplanades to enjoy a stroll with a traditional ice cream.
Airport Transfers can be arranged - approx. cost as at Nov. 12 would be 50 to 60 euros, one way, payable locally.
