Family visit end of Feb

We are thinking about visiting for Feb half term with children aged 13, 10, 5. We would like a bit of luxury, but would also like to stay somewhere with nice scenery and walks, good authentic food etc. Keen on seeing the real Cyprus but also need amenities!

We are used to the British weather, as long as it’s nice enough to be out and about and we see a bit of sunshine we will be happy with that- is this realistic??

Any advice gratefully received

The weather is totally unpredictable at that time of year; it could be sunny with blue skies or it could be grey and rainy.

The days are short and evenings chilly.

I’m not sure I would really recommend Cyprus in February. Although you can get lucky & have a few sunny spells the evenings are really cold & often wet. The Christmas & New Year holiday we spent in Paphos a few years ago was almost a complete write off as far as getting out & about was concerned & looking at the UK weather information at the time it was obviously much colder, wetter & stormer than it was at home. Luckily we were in a nice warm hotel & made the best if it but I don’t think I would chance going again anytime between mid November & mid April.

In general I'd say February is the coldest and wettest month, but it can't be predicted. Christmas and new year the weather was great here but the year before not so.

If you do decide to go for it then stay somewhere that provides some entertainment maybe a heated pool if you're lucky and a half decent room in case you cant get out and about but I'd be more inclined to hop on a plane to Tenerife

I’d agree with all the above. February is normally the wettest month of the year and the sea is too cold for swimming.

Hotel pools are not heated so with three kids to entertain I’d be booking somewhere else with more chance of sunshine
