Traditional Studio/Apartments / An Eco-Awarded traditional guest house

Vavla, Larnaka, Cyprus

Code: #270

Vavla Rustic Retreat is your ideal destination for a quiet, rustic get-away into the countryside of a village steeped in culture, history and traditions. Situated at the very top of the village of Vavla, the panoramic view of the surrounding valley and mountainsides, accompanied by the peace and tranquility that surrounds you will simply take your breath away!

Our family-owned and run traditional stone village house was built in the late 1800s, and each apartment has its own remarkable story to tell. Equipped with all of the modern-day comforts, every effort was made to include some of the familys original household artifacts in each apartment, imparting an authentic atmosphere and sense of nostalgia in each room. All of the rooms surround a common courtyard which is filled with the sounds of nature the songs of the migratory birds, or the humming of the bees in the spring. And, if youre lucky you may even spot a chameleon, or have the opportunity to befriend one of the village cats.

A small bottle of wine from a nearby winery and seasonal fruit (when available) from our orchard is included in each apartment to welcome our guests, along with a myriad of teas, coffees and biscuits to enjoy. Additionally, each apartment and kitchen is equipped to make our guests feel as if you never left home, as you can find almost anything you might possibly want or need, adding to the comfort of your stay.

A visit to Vavla means an opportunity to reconnect with nature, family, and oneself. A chance to explore centuries of culture and tradition. A chance to walk/hike through the countryside and discover the wonderful nature, flora and fauna in the area. A chance to experience the ancient tradition of wine-making and what it takes to tend the orchards and create the nectar of the gods. A chance to see the local honeybees at work, and learn how these magnificent little creatures help to preserve life as we know it - and then to taste the deliciously sweet product of their lifes work. A chance to pick your own fruit straight off of the tree, from oranges, tangerines, lemons and figs, to joining in the olive harvest and relishing the taste of the freshly pressed olive oil. A chance to explore and enjoy, and just be yourself.

We welcome you to come and experience the wonder and authenticity of this traditional stone house and the peaceful surroundings. The family would love to share the story of our traditional home with you, and arrange a visit with you to our family orchard to pick your own fruit during the harvesting seasons. We are always available to help you plan your trip, and will help to make sure that your stay is an unforgettable one!

Very nice rooms and service but

There is no acoustic separation between the rooms. We heard evrything that went on in our neighbors room. It continued even after we moved to another room. If this problem will be solved in the future, VRR can get 5 stars.

9days holiday

In short, if there were 10 stars this would get all 10! The room/flat was fully equipped, the decor was fitting, the welcome and care was perfect in every way. We were made totally at ease and welcome in a country we visited for the first time. We felt encouraged and were able to visit many different parts of the island, knowing what to expect and find. We are very much looking forward to booking again! Thank you!!

Christmas in a lovely village

We arrived in December 23rd for two days and expected to do a bit more hiking/discoveries around Vavla - but rainy weather limited us. However The apartment is so cosy and charming, the village very quiet and offering beautiful sceneries, Vavla was the perfect place for us: fireplace, lots of games keeping kids and us busy inside, and of course the unforgettable meals at Our House prepared by George and Maria. In the apartment all details ar very well cared, nice welcome Christmas cakes and wine, pleasant and discreet scented sticks everywhere, very nicely furnished. And not the least in winter: heating works well! (Even if the reverse air conditioning is not a very pleasant system - noisy and too much dry air - but the option everywhere in Cyprus). Thanks Kelly!

Most beautiful accomodation on Cyprus!

We had a wonderful stay at Vavla Rustic Retreat with really everything we needed in a high standard. The appartment was very clean, cosy and with all comfort one could imagine. The common space is a fantastic spot to relax and enjoy the Cypriotic countryside. The owners are extremely friendly and kind and help you with everything one needs to make the stay adorable. The kitchen is very well equipped, the bathroom is lovely constructed and offers organic sanitary products. Even the wi-fi connection is on the whole area very fast - great! We definately recommend this beautiful and lovely retreat which was a sustainable ^^ experience for us - we will come again!
