Come stay in Arakapas, a friendly Cypriot village in the heart of the wine growing region. We have 3 BRs that sleep 5 comfortably, 1 with a single bed downstairs and 2 upstairs: 1 with a queen size bed, 1 with 2 twins. The house is comfortable but basic. In the traditional style, it has an outside bathroom. Relax in the small courtyard, the shady upstairs balcony, or the back veranda which is sunny all day. You can enjoy local walks in Troodos, or spend the day at the beaches. For children there is a playground in the village. Free Wifi
Larnaca and Paphos airports are equidistance, about an hour's drive.
The kitchen is fully equipped with loads of dishes to can openers, peelers, pot and pans, and everything needed for cooking. There is a washing machine and small dishwasher as well. As it is an old Cypriot house, the bathroom is outside, and the upstairs bedrooms are reached by an outside staircase. The bathroom is very small and basic, but adequate, with a shower and toilet. There is an open fireplace great for chilly evenings in the winter months, wood is available at an extra charge of 10 euros/night. Each bedroom has a heater if it is very cold. Although the village is much cooler than the coast in the summer, we do have air conditioning in the rooms.
We kindly ask that you remove your outdoor shoes before coming into the house.
I live in London but have left the running and management in the capable hands of Costas at the local restaurant, Kalamaras which is a 5- minute walk. You will pick up your keys there and he will be available for anything that is needed.
Smoking only in the courtyard.
It is best to have a vehicle to reach the village, but everything is within walking distance of about 5- 10 minutes once there. There is a wonderful local restaurant, and 2 smaller coffee shops. For basics and food shopping, and more restaurants you will need to go to Eptagonia 4.6 km away.
There are local buses from Limassol but having a car gives you more independence. Parking is 30 feet from the house down the hill on the right.
