I have been friends with George the owner for over 25 years. He grew up like a brother to my business partner Neoptolemos in Lysos village. My ties to Cyprus go back to July 1974, Famagusta.
This property has been in the same family for generations. It has now been restored so you can enjoy the old, beautiful stone work, arch, fireplace, with the new, underfloor heating, heatable private pool, wi-fi
You cannot imagine that behind the wooden gates and high stone wall, you enter a different world, a beautiful pool, lemon trees beding with weight of fruit, jasmine scent, and this unique house!
This villa is quietly situated in a no through lane, and is hidden behind high stone walls, and gated for more privacy. The house has been sensitively restored by the owner George, who has lived all his life in Lysos. Highly recommended to guests who want to relax and sample traditional village life in a restored house with many original features, whilst enjoying home from home comforts. Slightly off the beaten track, visitors are made very welcome in this hilltop village, with its views across the Akamas National Park, to the sea. A short 100m stroll brings you to the heart of the village where you will find 3 coffee shops, two also offering sandwiches, hamburgers and drinks. And the other one offers souvlaki kebab and other food to order. The coffee shops have added some minimarket items to their range which is handy, so you can get some basics in the village. Just 600m away on edge of village with wonderful views is attractive stone built Paradisos Hotel and they serve good food and it's a lovely spot for a drink at sunset.
The Polis area offers beautiful countryside and uncrowded beaches, including sandy Lara Bay, where the turtles nest, and Chrysochou Bay, which offers mile after mile of quiet beaches alongside citrus groves, with a dramatic backdrop of hills. The nearby Paphos Forest has spectacular scenery and we highly recommend a visit.
For families with children donkey rides are available in village.
