The village of Agios Theodorus is one of the most picturesque in Cyprus and this house has commanding views all around from it's high position. It has obviously been a loved family holiday home and is well planned and equipped throughout. My family are Anglo Cypriot so we know Cyprus very well and I can say with confidence that you will not find a nicer place to stay than this.

The house is so large we did not use all of the living accommodation and could easily of lost each other. There is also plenty of outdoor areas including a place to park the car. The kitchen is well equipped and the swimming pool is large enough for a dip and small enough that it is not freezing cold. The owner Linda is always on hand by phone for any advice needed. The village is small but very friendly - one can buy homemade marmalade from the lady living next to the Teacher House. The house is well positioned to explore the whole of the island. Would we go back ? Yes, especially at the time we went as the weather was just right - sun in the day time but cool enough at night to be able to sleep.
