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, cured pig, kept fowl, harvested the crops and worked lace for the merchants of Lefkara. The villages bought wine from the mountain villages of Vavla and beyond. Inside the house is a fine example of a Palati, a double vaulted arched room with stone flooring that is a cool and elegant sitting room. The house is air-conditioned and centrally heated. Three double bedrooms are all ensuite. The dining room will sit 8-10 comfortably. A terrace runs the length of the house and overlooks the swimming pool. This house offers the peace and tranquility of the past with all modern conveniences. The House of Achilles is run with care for the environment and ecology of Cyprus.
