Our House in Vavla village is a charming traditional Cypriot village stone house, originally built in early 1900s renovated to the highest standard with respect to tradition, functionality, comfort and is filled with character. Relax in the tranquillity of rural life in the countryside. ’’Our House’’ is built in the long style around a private courtyard offering peace and privacy, adorned by four stone kamaras (arches), three traditional ovens, barbeque and our relaxing water wall. Lovely views of the village and mountains from rooftop open-air patio adorned by a mature grape vine.
In the traditional neighbourhood of Lythrodontas village lies Avli (Georgallides Courtyard), an exquisite example of traditional architecture consisting of three old brick buildings with wooden roofs and tiles, unified upon their restoration.
Because of its noteworthy traditional character, the entire complex has been declared an antique building by the authorities and all materials and techniques used for its restoration are traditional and indigenous to the area.
The listed stone house was built in the 19th century by the owners family. The house was completely restored in 2006. The occupants of the house at the turn of the century were farmers who cultivated wheat and barley using oxen, and harvested carob and olive trees in the valley below. The women of the house spun and loomed silk, sured pig, kept fowl, harvested the crops and worked lace for the merchants of Lefkara. They brought their wine by donkey from the nearby mountain village of Vavla.
In Greek, Monadiko (“μοναδικό”) means unique, something unlike anything else, one of a kind.
This rural place is a spacious house (122 m2) of traditional mountainous architecture, which was constructed in the late 18th century to accommodate the cooperative commercial bank of the village. Later on it was transformed into a coffee shop and right before its last renovation, it was used as a storing facility for packaging carobs. The building was especially restored in order to accommodate a family or a group of friends.
