Arodes, Pafos, Cyprus

Code: #122

SPECIAL OFFER: 10% for September-December arrivals for 5 or more nights.

Karydhia Cottage, a beautiful stone-built residence, is 150 years old. Its large courtyard full of trees, including a massive walnut tree, is particularly impressive.
It is cozy and warm in winter, cool and fresh in summer. Enjoy the peace and tranquillity lying around the swimming pool or under the walnut and pomegranate trees in the delightful courtyard.
The house is ideally located for those who wish to explore the region, the unspoiled Akamas peninsula and the nature trails. This is the area where the careta careta turtles lay their eggs, a species carefully protected by Greenpeace. Visitors can discover the Avakas gorge, cycle, hike, or swim on the nearby beaches which are only 10 km away (15 minute drive).

3 night stay in August

The house is roomy and the verandah at the front is a lovely place to sit to eat and read. The village is quiet and very safe.The house could do with a bit more oversight by the owners. The ceiling fans in the bedrooms either did not work or only worked if the light was on. The shower head had come loose and sprayed the wall rather than the person taking a shower. The crockery and pans in the kitchen were really not squeaky clean. The washing machine is fairly small and had obviously never been cleaned - remnants of pink softener and a soap drawer full of water made me decide not to use it at all. There are just 6 clothes pegs on the rather rusty clothes line in the back garden (one per guest?) so not much good for hanging out clothes to dry. In need of some TLC.

Peaceful Retreat

We had a great time at this traditional house which was full of artifacts from a time long past in Cypriot history. Steeped in tradition but not lacking in any modern comforts. Fully functioning kitchen. Fully equiped bbq area. Pool. Breeze throughout the hot day and cool evenings in mid-July! What more could one ask. One minor blemish, single bathroom/toilet for entire house might be tricky to organise if large groups. We were 5 plus child. We had no issues but worth mentioning. 10 minutes from Coral Bay. 10 minutes from Latchi. What? You havent booked it yet??? This place has earned its place in my travel bookmarks...and we will return!
