The aim of our holiday was total peace, quiet and relaxation away from the hustle and bustle of a tourist resort and we were not disappointed!
The route through Maroni was lovely, via narrow paved streets – a truly traditional Cypriot village with not too much more than a few streets, a coffee/cocktail bar that opened a few times a week, and a little village shop for essentials
The villa itself is superb, from the double sturdy wooden traditional doors that you make you feel like you’re walking into a castle, to the quirky property layout and wonderful roof terrace looking over the village, hills and to sea. We didn’t find ourselves wanting for anything and truly felt like we were staying in someone’s home with all the comfort that we’re used to, without it feeling like temporary holiday accommodation
The property is split over 4 levels with entrance hall and kitchen on street level then steps down to the snug, with further steps down to the bedrooms and pool. On the upper level is the snug/living room and at the top is the fabulous roof terrace where we spent much of our time having breakfast while watching the sun come up, and having our evening meals watching the sunset.
The pool area was lovely and very private, with welcome shade from the olive tree during the midday sunshine. This area gets the sun from very early morning until around 5pm and from then we went up to the roof terrace where the sun finally disappeared behind the village around 7pm.
Re housekeeping, we didn’t have any issues at all and the villa was well stocked with cleaning products, teatowels, dishwasher tablets etc to look after ourselves, however if we had a suggestion it would be that if we were a family we might have struggled with shower and pool towels for 2 weeks as there was no housekeeping during our stay. As it was, we are a couple so we used the spare set from another room but if this hadn’t have been possible we’d have probably had to look at washing them through which isn’t something you necessarily want to do on holiday (although it was so hot they would have dried quickly so no major inconvenience)
The kitchen is extremely well stocked and cooking ‘at home’ is very easy and we did this most nights
Alan was very quick to answer any questions we had both before and during the visit, and the welcome basket of wine, tea, coffee, butter, bread, water, crisps and fruit was much appreciated and a very nice touch. Thank you so much, we cant wait to return!
Ozone treatment for cancer or Lyme disease much more available in Cyprus than in much of Europe and the States (where it is very expensive).
Staying in this flat while having treatment has been wonderful. The whole environment is relatively peaceful, the gardens are mature with lots of interesting plants well maintained. The flat is spacious for 3.
Kitchen is especially good for a rented flat. Bathrooms are splendid, beds are comfortable. If we come back this will be first choice without a doubt. Michael Bridge
