Quingo Accessible Holidays: Villa Carpe Diem

At this time of year we’re often eager to book a summer holiday, and we’re constantly looking around for ideas and inspiration on where to go! Quingo Scooters understand that finding somewhere that’s perfect is extremely important, especially when it comes to accessibility.

In our series of blog posts on accessible holidays, we’ve been looking at the best spots for your summer getaway. Today, we’re taking you to the beautiful south coast of Cyprus to the Villa Carpe Diem.

Cyprus is a popular holiday destination that certainly doesn’t lack in scenery, history and culture. An island in the Eastern Mediterranean, it’s known for its beaches and its wine growing regions. The capital, Nicosia, is also known for its archaeological sites.


The Villa

Villa Carpe Diem is a fully accessible private villa, family owned and specifically built to be mobility scooter and wheelchair accessible. In the Larnaca District of Cyprus, you’ll find the small village of Maroni, where the Villa Carpe Diem is located. It offers absolutely stunning countryside and sea views for a luxurious and relaxing week (or two!) away, and is just 3km from the nearest beach. The villa is quite large and sleeps up to 8 people, perfect for a group holiday!

The Villa Carpe Diem has everything you need and could want for an accessible summer holiday.

  • 10 x 5 metre salt water pool
  • Outdoor terrace dining area
  • 4 bathrooms
  • 3 bedrooms
  • Sunbeds
  • Wheelchair accessible vehicle (optional)


Accessible apartment

The whole property is adapted for mobility scooters, but if you don’t fancy holidaying in a group you can just book the accessible self-contained apartment instead, which is where the accessible master suite is located. It also has an accessible sitting room and wet room. Some other features of the apartment are:

  • Electric profiling beds with memory foam mattresses
  • Easy Trak ceiling track and Voyager hoist system
  • Oxford Major manual hoist for swimming pool
  • Easy going, wide ramped access to the garden, swimming pool and common areas of the villa
  • Level access tiled flooring throughout

Overall, this is the perfect place for a sunny beach holiday. You can jet off on your mobility scooter for a relaxing time away, with no worries and everything already thought about for you. Check out the Villa Carpe Diem website for information on booking and pricing.
