Melanda Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay. Found that the setting was ideal for our wishes. One or two problems with some of the various pieces of equipment. We couldn't get the toaster to work. We had a problem with the DVD player - it either jumped or froze, but these were minor problems in the context of the general enjoyment of the holiday.

Date of stay: October 2017

Exactly as described, peaceful, and ideal.

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 6 (4 adults and 2 young children) and stayed for two weeks starting at the end of July, and had the most relaxing holiday. The property was ideal, with a separate room and ensue for the grandparents, and the main building for a family of 3 adults and 2 children with kitchen, lounge, and it's own bathroom.

The cottage is virtually hidden and therefore benefits from peace and quiet. It is situated in Pissouri village (not Pissouri Bay, although that is within easy reach), and just a stone's throw from the village square complete with a variety of good value restaurants providing a high standard of food for all tastes, including a genuine British Fish & Chip shop for those who need a change from souvlaki.

The property is described as charming, and that is right on the button.It was a pleasure dealing with Nara, and it was a pity that we did not have the opportunity of meeting her.

Altogether, the holiday was a complete success for two old-us, and my daughters family, including grandsons aged 2 and 5. We spent a lot of time in the eminently suitable pool!

Almost immediately on arrival we felt part of the village community, and nothing was too much trouble for the villagers if you needed aything at all.

A wonderful holiday in a wonderful place - what more could you want? Well, maybe a return visit!!

Nice cottage in beautiful surroudings

  • 4 of 5

The house was very nice and modern inside despite the age, our kids loved the pool even though it was early season and in my opinion freezing. It had good amenities and within a short walk of the village square and restaurants. We would definitely visit again

We want to go back!

  • 5 of 5

It is now 2 months since our lovely family holiday at Melanda Cottage. The remarkable location means that you have absolute privacy and yet are just a couple of minutes walk from the vibrant centre of Pissouri Village, which is well served with a range of typical local restaurants ranging from "fast food" to more formal settings. The village centre is vibrant in the evenings and the local amphitheatre hosts a number of entertainment events. Despite being so close, these activities do not encroach the tranquility of Melanda Cottage if you prefer to spend the evening sitting by the pool and enjoying your own cooking. I think a car is essential. The nearest beach is little more than 5 minutes drive away and likewise the main local supermarket - the fact that Pissouri Village is perched high on a steep hilltop means that walking to either would probably not be an option, especially in hot weather. The cottage is nicely appointed and clean and the separate annexe means that parents and children or non-family groups can be close and yet have some privacy. The owner (Nara) was readily contactable by email (and phone) and happy to offer advice or solve any problems. It really did feel as if you were staying in a friend's home rather than renting a "holiday villa". The buildings and layout are quaint and atmospheric but the facilities contemporary e.g. well equipped kitchen, air conditioning, WiFi etc. The selection of TV channels and reception were less impressive but it really didn't matter - the cottage, the pool and the village mean that the last thing you want to do is sit by the TV! I will admit to having streamed a little bit of Test Match cricket over the WiFi!! The outcome – we would all like to go back – is there a better recommendation?

Car: recommended

Pissouri Village is set on a hillside about 900m above the sea with dramatic views of the surrounding countryside which you'll be able to enjoy from your terrace.

The Troodos Mountains, Akrotiri Peninsula and Aphrodite's Rock all serve as wonderful geographical attractions, with the later only a short drive away.

The village square, only 100m away with traditional coffee shops has a selection of charming tavernas serving local food. There is a weekly Cyprus Night in the square with a display of Greek dancing and music. Happily the Cottage enjoys a secluded location so whether you indulge in the local nightlife or not, is up to you!

A short drive to the beach opens up a whole new area of relaxation and fun. The Bay of Pissouri with the deep blue Mediterranean provides an ideal backdrop to any water based activity you'd like to pursue. It's tranquil scenes are equally well placed for gentle reading and relaxation with the sound of the sea and captivating views of the Mediterranean. Swimming on a designated Blue Flag beach is enjoyed by all the holiday visitors. On the fringe of the beach are tavernas serving refreshing drinks and delicious local dishes. Water sports, such as sailing, wind surfing, water skiing, with private lessons, are available.

Nearby are many ancient Greek and Roman temples, villas and mosaics at Curium, Kouklia and Paphos.

Pissouri is a charming, small village with traditional Cypriot hospitality, steeped in tradition where visitors staying and Melanda cottage can enjoy all modern amenities.
