NEWLY RESTORED TRADITIONAL CYPRIOT TOWNHOUSE IN LIMASSOL CITY CENTRE.

Limassol City House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 3 receptions, 2 shower/WC, kitchen, courtyard, sleeps 6/8

A 19th century house in the centre of medieval Limassol town. Built with charm along the traditional architectural arrangement around a central courtyard. The kitchen, dining room, bedrooms and shower/WC all open directly onto the courtyard. There is a further reception room and a large sitting room. The master bedroom has its own separate en suite shower room/WC.

The property has high ceilings and is furnished tastefully in line with its age. Considering its central location this is an exceptionally large 3 bedroom house with 7 spacious rooms in total.

Golf Information: There are only 3 18-hole golf courses in Cyprus and all 3 are close (about 30 minutes drive). They have a good reputation and are popular by professional golfers. The Tsada and Secret Valley golf courses are relatively easy even for beginners, the Aphrodite Hills golf course in situated on high hills over looking the Mediterranean sea and therefore tends to be windy. Although spectacular, the course can be difficult even for an experienced golfer.

Skiing Information: Surprising to most, Cyprus does get cold in winter, although it is extremely rare for the temperatures to drop below 10 deg C in Limassol. Depending on the weather, the Troodos mountains are often covered with snow during this period. Ski rental is relatively inexpensive. Driving to the ski slopes from our property takes about 75 minutes.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear ****, (actual names deleted)



It is already some months ago, but I have meant to send this e-mail for some time. The e-mail is also meant for your aunt ****!



We would like to thank you and **** (or **** for us) for the great time we had in your beautiful house in Limassol. It is a very comfortable house and we felt very welcome. Especially, because **** also invited me and my children **** and **** to come over to her house for one of the afternoons, while **** was having one of the meeting days with our business partners in Limassol. The grand children were there as well that afternoon and **** and **** liked it very much. I have included some pictures of that afternoon here in this e-mail.



We all liked it very much at Cyprus and hope to come again some time. I am not sure when exactly there will be another meeting, but it will be somewhere next year, and I will try to book your house again for sure.



We do hope the wine business still flourish. That was something else we really appreciated: the great wines we tasted which **** provided for us in the house. The next time we come, we will really like to see the vineyard and to bring some bottles home with us.



Thanks again for everything.



Best Regards,
Mar 2011

AUTHENTIC CYPRUS - A RARE FIND

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing time here: on the flight home we thought to ourselves: we have been to Cyprus many times before but only now did we actually experience Cypriot life.

The location of the house is not in a touristy area and yet we blended in perfectly everywhere. After the first two days people in the local shops were greeting us as regulars. We spent our time walking around the old city, walking to the beach (not far at all) and then rented a car to drive to other places.

The house in extremely well appointed. It is pretty obvious that the whole house has been refurbished recently. Complete kitchen, great baths and good beds. All spotless.

RUSTIC CHARM IN

  • 4 of 5
If you want to experience Cypriot life then this is the place to stay. The house over 200 years old and is 10 minutes walk from some lovely old town restuarants, 15 mins from the sea and 25 mins walk to the nearest stretch of beach. We loved it and hope to stay again. The number 30 bus is 10 mins walk - 1 euro per trip - and goes straight to the the
tourist district (should you want to venture into pizza hut/ nandos / starbucks/ haagen daaz land). We had some lovely meals by the castle - try carob mills end - (7 mins walk) and also at the Londa Hotel (tourist area) & farmagusta nautical club (traditonal and rustic). Say Hi to the chap in the printers next dooor - he's very welcoming and helpful.
Finally, the house if full of old charms - family lace, and beautiful glasswear. My old criticism is the bed in the master bedroom is rather hard and squeaky, n ot a problem as plenty of space so we swapped rooms; but on the whole it's a well kept secret, owned by a lovely family - lovely!

EXCELLENT PLACE FOR SPLENDID VACATION IN LIMASSOL

  • 5 of 5
Yiayia's house is the perfect place for you stay in Limassol. Around the house there are many coffee places, and shops, and you can walk to the harbour and see side, even to the nearest beaches.
The house itself has everything you need, and is nicely decorated.
We stayed there with our two yound kids, who loved to play in the courtyard. We found everything as advertised on the webpage.
and had a wonderful time for the two weeks that we spent there.
What should be noted (and for some people this may be most important) is that we were given the phone number of the owners aunt (who lives close to the house), and could call her any time in case of any problem.

AN HONEST (BUT VERY LONG!) REVIEW.

  • 5 of 5
I am Cypriot but moved to London in my youth. I have family living in Limassol hence I visit often with my husband and 3 kids. In the past we stayed either in a hotel or with family but this time we decided to rent this house to use as a base. I cannot put in writing how much better this was:

1.The house is absolutely beautiful. It brought back childhood memories when Limassol used not to be a concrete jungle. Very few traditional houses still stand and this house is a prime example. It must have been built for a well-off family of the time as it has 3 bedrooms, 3 reception rooms, a large kitchen and 2 WCs. The owners have resisted the temptation of converting the reception rooms into further bedrooms
2.The house belongs to the same family for 60 years. They have restored it with great pride and obvious sentiment. It retains an atmosphere of a bygone era without a compromise on mod cons (eg the property is air conditioned)
3.Little gestures such as a complimentary bottle of wine made by another member of the same family (called Monolithos winery for those who are interested!) wer left out for us. We ended up purchasing a whole box of wine to cover our stay and to give as gifts.
4.The owners set out a cot for my 18 month old son at no extra cost. The washing machine proved useful for washing his clothes
5.The central courtyard is an absolute gem. We sat out for breakfast every day before heading off.
6.My daughter used the terrace sun-bed to get sun burnt
7.The location is ideal for those who want to combine proximity to the beach with access to decent restaurants/bars, museums and cultural venues. We had a myriad of options to eat out within walking distance and hence could enjoy a tipple without the concern of a drive back
8.It is also a short walk to the market where I sent my husband shopping at dawn for breakfast!
9.Returning here daily we felt as if we were coming ‘home’. The kids used the TV to hook up their Nintendo and me and my husband got some time to ourselves.
10.Finally the price worked out in total at much less than I have ever paid for a half decent hotel. Using the kitchen for simple meals saved us a fortune on eating out

I know I have gone on and on, but I really had such a good time I felt compelled to write this review especially after being asked to do so by the owners. I could go on for more but I think I will spare you the pain! And yes, I will definitely be staying here again!

If you are looking for a holiday in the mass tourist industry that Cyprus has generated, please look elsewhere. Here, in this property, you will experience the buzz of daily Cypriot life, the way the locals live it. Walk through the tightly built old city, its narrow lanes, and experience what Cyprus is really about. Visit the local markets, the local “Kafeneio”, eat at the local mezedopoleio. The property is within a stone’s throw of the medieval castle, where Richard the Lionheart wedded Berengaria on May 12, 1191 AD. You will hear the church bells ring and the Imam's call to prayer; the Turkish quarter is only 5 minutes away (walking). And if its culture you are after, walk to the local open air cinema, local theatre or drive to the ancient Greek theatre of Curium where regular international productions are staged. And if the weather is good (statistically only 330 days of sunshine per year) the beach is less than 1km 10min walk away. And that is downhill.
