Pefko Apartment is perfect for families or groups who want a relaxing and quiet holiday in a village setting. The apartment is situated on a small complex and in a quiet village and has a SMART TV and free unlimited wifi is included in the rental price!

The Tavernas are very reasonably priced and offer both local and international cuisine. A short walk through the village will take you to the foothills of the village and for the more energetic you can follow the footpaths up to the top of the hills to enjoy the breathtaking views. The nearest beach is just a 5 minute drive away and the nearby cosmopolitan town of Larnaca is just 10 minutes drive a perfect combination!

100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date. You must contact the owner directly to request cancellation.
Avoid in summer if you tend to sleep for more than 6 hours!
The property was as expected from the photos, clean and in good condition but they have a system in place for the air-conditioning that affected a lot our stay. The a/c in the bedrooms automatically shuts off after 6 hours and you need to go reset it manually. During early morning, with no a/c and windows closed the room quickly gets very warm which kept waking us up, especially my toddler daughter. I didn't want to sleep with a/c and windows open as this is very bad for the environment, so when I asked the manager if they could remove the timer, at least in my daughter's room, she refused and couldn't believe how anyone can sleep for more than 6 hours without needing the toilet!! Be aware that most properties in the block are managed by the same company so probably will have same system.
Also, if cancellation policy is important to you be sure to double check before booking. On the website at the time of booking it was saying 100% refund up to 15 days before, but then they said this was wrong and the managers hadn't noticed to change it. Their actual refund policy is 100% up to 60 days before only.
On another note, if you choose to stay here make sure to try Kokos Restaurant! The chicken, lamb chops and meat balls are particularly tasty!
Thank you for your review of Pefko Apartment - we are happy to read that you found the apartment to be so clean and in good condition and also that you enjoyed the local Kokos Taverna - everybody loves it there! With regards to the air conditioning system, this has been in place for the past 5 years and no other guests have had an issue with it as you will see from previous guest reviews. To address your comment about the cancellation policy, the complex is a small complex with limited availability so we cannot accept cancellations close to the arrival date. Typically guests book their flight and accommodation and only in very exceptional circumstances have to cancel - this is normally covered on travel insurance depending on the reason for the cancellation. I do recall that you explained that it was your personal choice rather than an unforeseen event which caused you to amend your booking. We did accept your amended dates and also reduced the price of the rental to reflect this even though our cancellation policy is actually 60 days. We also gave you the option of cancelling your booking and only losing the initial Booking Deposit but you declined this. We have a reputation of being fair with our guests which is why we have so many repeat guests every year.
Kind regards from Rick the owner of Pefko Apartment and also Angela the Property Manager.
Spacious and very clean apartment
We were a group of seven, we enjoyed staying at this flat. Angela who managed the property was very helpful, before making our journey to Cyprus by sending us directions how to get to the flat and information about the local area, it was very easy to get to the flat. I booked the flat by bank transfer to Angela's account directly.
The apartment is in a very quiet area and it is easy to get to the airport and Larnaca city. It is equally easy to get to other cities, Nicosia, Limassol and Ayia Napa. The apartment is very clean and spacious. It was a home to home experience for all of us.
Hi Sima, many thanks for your review, both the owner and I are very happy indeed to hear that you enjoyed Pefko Apartment and that Angela was of great help to you!
Best wishes to all until next time! x x

Excellent apartment in a quiet location
Our small group were attending a sporting event in Larnaca for a few days and found Pefko apartment ideal for our needs. Good sized clean rooms with all the necessary amenities which lived up to the description. The apartment is in a quiet location but still within easy travelling distance of Larnaca.
The service was excellent including a stocking up the fridge for our arrival since we were on a late flight.
Can highly recommend this apartment. Very clean, comfortable and plenty of space. Hope to return to Cyprus soon and would certainly stay here again. Angela the manager was super helpful. Highly recommended.
Larnaca town has several beautiful sandy beaches with sun beds, umbrellas, water sports, scuba diving, snack bars and restaurants. Other quiet beaches which are ideal for a picnic are 10 minutes drive away and the famous golden sands of Ayia Napa and Protaras are 40-50 minutes drive. A great central location for exploring.
15km to Larnaca International Airport (15 minutes drive). 1 hour 15 minutes drive to Paphos International Airport.
We would like to advise our guests that we consider car hire to be essential - the good news is that in Cyprus they also drive on the left!
The beauty of Alethriko is that while the village is so tranquil and idyllic, it is only a 5 minute drive to the main motorway and centrally placed on the island for anyone who wants to explore the many things Cyprus has to offer with ease. Larnaca 15 minutes, Larnaca Airport 15 minutes, Nicosia 40 minutes, Limassol 25 minutes, Ayia Napa 40 minutes, Paphos 1 hr 15 minutes, Troodos Mountains 1 hour.
Larnaca is a very cosmopolitan town offering everything you need for a fantastic holiday. It is often unappreciated by those who merely see it as home for the islands' main International Airport. Larnaca boasts a beautiful promenade lined with palm trees and pavement cafes, a marina full of multi-million pound yachts and boats, boat trips, world-wide cuisine, great shopping (Zara and Mango are here!), sandy beaches, water sports, good nightlife, history, culture and tradition. In addition to all of the things, Larnaca is perfectly placed on the island making it an ideal base from which to explore the rest of the island.
The apartment is 1km from the centre of Alethriko village and just a short walk to the nearest taverna-12 EUR for a traditional Meze (dips, grilled halloumi cheese, mix of grilled meats, salad, potatoes and fruit). Lots of other tavernas within 15 minutes' drive to nearby villages or a 15 minute drive can take you down the coast to Zygi or Makenzie for a fabulous fish meze.You are spoilt for choice and certainly won't go hungry!
There is a good supermarket in the village, and other larger ones 10 minutes' drive away in the next village. Mega supermarkets like Carrefour 15 minutes' drive away in Larnaca.
To enable you to start your holiday from the minute you arrive, a grocery welcome pack is available by arrangement. List the items of your choice i.e. water, milk, bread, butter, cereal, fruit, eggs, fruit juice, tea, coffee, beer, wine etc. and they will be in the villa waiting for you. Your holiday starts from the minute you arrive!
Our property manager, (Angela), who is English and lives nearby will meet you at the apartment on your arrival to welcome you and to hand over keys and show you around the apartment. Should you require any assistance/advice during your stay Angela will be more than happy to help. Maps and guide books are provided in the apartment.
Changeover Day: Both the duration and the changeover day are flexible. If there are no arrivals on the same day as your departure check out time is flexible to suit your flight time and will be confirmed the day before your departure.
