Ayia Napa

WARNING ! You’re gonna find it pretty hard to leave this fantasy to go back to reality …

Anyone who knows Napa, knows, that ‘full of youths’ stigma is just a load of media hype and no different from any other top resort! Fact is, it’s so versatile…

Nemo The New Submarine, Ayia Napa

setting sail daily from Ayia Napa’s splendid harbour, heading west along the coast to Pernera Bay in Ayia Napa, where this year there’ll be a new stop off by the water sports to watch the divers over the newly sunk wreck some 20 metres down … I think this is the only boat in Napa deep enough to see this and it's quite awesome looking down on the divers …

It’s Summer at Pirates Inn, Ayia Napa Yo! Ho! Ho!

Green Acres Project, Cyprus

The idea of timber framed houses, with cavities and insulation, that keeps the house cool in summer and nice and warm in the winter obviously makes good sense in Cyprus ... Add the attention to detail, including, above average bedroom sizes, bay windows, utility room, gas or log fire places, a separate kitchen that fits a good size dining table with fitted oven, hob, extractor with quality ceramics and surfaces, en suite shower room, 3 bathrooms and toilets, car ports with roofs, power pressure water systems, high quality finishing, like fitted wardrobes with drawers that glide, provisions for central heating and air conditioning and much more !

Without doubt Andreas' speciality is sound, with many top bars and clubs trusting in his knowledge and experience, tbh, I've never met anyone who knows audio better than this guy and listened with interest as he critiqued the sound system at Ministry of Sound in London on our visit a few years back, ask him to tell you about it 😉
