If you want a reliable fix of sun, sand and sea, Cyprus delivers with its near year-round sunny climate and home-from-home rentals – bookable on Culture Trip.

In the race to warm up first, Cyprus always wins. The earliest isle in the Mediterranean to heat up (and the one that stays toasty warm well into autumn, to boot) can’t be beaten for a relaxed, no-pressure sunshine break. Simple, affordable and equipped for self-caterers, these holiday apartments in Cyprus put you close to the best of the island, whether you’re looking for sandy shores, Blue Flag beaches, craggy coast or rural hinterland snaked by hiking trails and topped by monasteries.

Homely and welcoming, with a pleasantly modern aesthetic (charcoal-grey sofas, white-and-turquoise bedding, snug rugs and glossy woods), Stephanie is close to the waterfront in Larnaca city. There’s a fabulous patio with swinging basket chairs, tangerine-cushioned furniture and a huge brick barbecue, whizzy wifi and helpful staff who can point you in the direction of local sights and restaurants.

2. Corina Suites and Apartments

With a tranquil pool set in luscious gardens featuring olive trees and hot-pink blossoms, Corina has a tropical feel to it. Rooms follow a chic colour scheme of snow white and stone grey, with armchairs, framed art prints and dining spots scattered about for a home-from-home feel. Make use of the house gym, or use the barbecue area on the immaculate lawn for an al fresco dinner.

3. Christabelle Hotel Apartments

In nightlife-central Ayia Napa, the Christabelle complex is close to the central square, so fuzzy heads are often being soothed around the huge rectangular pool. With free parking on-site, it’s a great choice for holidaymakers with a rental car in tow and has all the mod cons, from snappy wifi to a beer-clinking pool bar.

4. Kaos Hotel Apartments

Also in Ayia Napa, close to Sandy Bay and Nissi Beach, whitewashed Kaos is calmer than its name suggests. With apartment blocks built like Cycladic homes and an enormous pool, it has Grecian style in spades, and rooms have smart wooden dining areas and royal blue and grey accents. These holiday apartments in Cyprus sleep up to five people, while villas cater for up to eight, perfect for groups of mates.

5. Pebble Beach Holiday Apartments

Right on the seafront outside Limassol, Pebble Beach has one-, two- and three-bed apartments, all with squishy sofas, art on the walls and serene sea views. With a playground that younger children will love and steps straight down to the craggy waterfront, you’re well placed for the water parks, zoo and historic sights in the area.

6. Antonis G Hotel Apartments

In the village of Oroklini, beside Larnaca Bay, this charming little set of holiday apartments in Cyprus is topped off by a lovely wood-panelled bar with the feel of an authentic tavern. Double day beds and crocheted parasols add a touch of beach-club glamour to the pool area, but overall, this is a low-key hangout, offering stylish, simple suites with living areas and wood beams – you’ll feel right at home.

7. Pigeon Beach Hotel Apartments

With sweeping sea views just outside Limassol, Pigeon Beach has spacious, stylish apartments with quirky circular balconies. Patchwork armchairs, houseplants and patterned rugs jazz up the joint, and there’s a charming seafront bar and grill downstairs serving Tex-Mex cuisine that kids will love. This one’s handy for the zoo, castle and marina in the city, as well as local water sports and beach bars.
