A short stroll to local village with 3 good restaurants, supermarkets and a cafe with friendly locals and freshly squeezed orange juice. Good sized well maintained swimming pool and Elena was very helpful. Enjoyed lazing by the pool, BBQs and generally having a very relaxing holiday. Would definitely come again. The Sculpture Park near Mazotos and Ktima Demetriou Rural Museum were both very interesting and also the Classic Car Museum at Limassol are all worth a visit.
