Traditional Stone Village Apartment With Balcony

Bedrooms 1
Space 376 sq. ft.
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 3 - 5 nights


About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

The self contained apartment is part of a sympathetically restored traditional stone building, located on a quiet road on the outskirts of Pentakomo village square.

The balcony has unrestricted views of the Troodos mountains across the fields of carob and olive trees, sunshine for most of the day followed by stunning evening sunsets.

The villagers are very friendly and the square has a supermarket, butcher, coffee shop/taverna. There are two other traditional tavernas within walking distance, all serving Cypriot dishes.

Pentakomo is an exceptionally well located village for independent travellers who want to enjoy authentic Cypriot village life. It is also an excellent base from which to explore the entire island.

For nature lovers and bird watchers, the balcony is a great place to observe many of the migratory birds that pass through Cyprus, including the inquisitive Swifts and beautiful Bee Eaters.

The stunning cliffs and fish restaurant at Agios Giorgos are within 5 minutes drive, and a wide selection of other restaurants and beaches are nearby.

Limassol, Larnaca and many local historic attractions are within easy reach, including the Kalavassos Tenta (5 mins), UNESCO World Heritage site of Choirokoitia (10 mins) and the ancient ruins of Amathus (10 mins).

About Julie Donovan

We have been visiting family on the island for a number of years and really enjoy the pace of life and climate. We decided to buy a property so that we could spend more time on the island. We travel regularly and split our time between Cyprus, the South of France and the UK.

Julie Donovan purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Julie Donovan chose Pentakomo

We wanted a traditional Cyprus village house, somewhere which had character and was situated in a quiet and friendly village with easy access to the beach, motorway and airport. Pentakomo is exceptionally well located for access to the entire island. Here we are able to enjoy peaceful village life while being just 5 minutes from the beach and a short distance from both Limassol and Larnaca.

What makes this apartment unique

The property sits on the edge of the village overlooking fields of carob and olive trees. In particular, the mornings and evenings are wonderful. We can sit outside all day and enjoy the views of the mountains, watch the different migratory birds as they pass through, and in the evenings watch the amazing sunsets with a nice glass of wine !

Well situated apt in a peaceful friendly village.

  • 4 of 5

A very tasteful and nicely furnished apt, with a wonderful panoramic view.

Was great to also have a couple of local village tavernas for evening meals within easy walking distance from the apt after exploring the many sights and places of interest in the area during the day. It was a wonderful short winter break, with good weather.

A cosy apartment in a traditional village

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a week in this apartment in February. It was clean, comfortable, well-equipped and well-maintained with a view up to the mountains from the balcony. The owners, who live adjacent, met us on arrival and were helpful throughout our stay. Pentakomo was a great location for exploring around the island being just a few minutes inland from the main road between Limassol and Larnaka. A car is essential though. The village is unspoilt with a small local supermarket and a very welcoming restaurant. The beaches and their restaurants are in easy reach as well. Everywhere was very quiet in February and the historical sites were wonderfully empty and atmospheric. Highly recommended.

Our family of four travelled to Cyprus from Sweden. We wanted to explore the Island on this trip as we had visited the Ayia Napa area before. The location of these wonderful apartments was perfect as a base for trips to Nicosia and Pafos, and all destinations were a reasonable distance for day trips. There are beautiful beaches very close by, wonderful seafood restaurants and traditional cuisine. The apartments are situated in a quiet village with a shop and taverna. The Cypriots in the village were most welcoming which we found very charming. Our hosts (an English couple) were very helpful and they went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed our stay at their apartments and on the island. The apartments were very clean, tastefully decorated with nice furniture, fully equipped kitchenette, air conditioning, and even a washing machine! The view from the balcony was fantastic. Watching the sun go down over the mountains was amazing. We highly recommend these apartments to anyone travelling to Cyprus.

Kan varmt rekommendera lägenheterna I Pentakomo. Trevlig by, värdparet mycket hjälpsamma. Lägenheterna mycket fina. Läget perfekt .

Tout est conforme à la description des lieux avec des plus...

  • 5 of 5

L'appartement est bien conçu, bien équipé, bien entretenu, bien agencé et décoré avec goût. On sent la patte de l'artiste tant à l'intérieur qu'à l'extérieur et aux abords de la maison.

Nous avons aprécié l'accueil de Julie et Phil, leurs attentions et aussi de trouver une cuisine avec ce qu'il faut pour le petit déjeuner, la cuisine et la vaisselle.

Nous reviendrons avec plaisir et conseillerons cette location à nos amis de Chypre et d'ailleurs.

La plage d'Agios Yiorgos toute proche est magnifique, Limassol toute proche et la vue du balcon l'appartement à couper le souffle.

La taverne Iris au haut du village est une bonne adresse.

"The apartment is located in a lovely little stone house in the village of Pentakomo. With its cute veranda overlooking the hills it has a real feel-good atmosphere about it. Julie and Phil have put their heart into the place and they are great hosts! I would definitely recommend the place to anyone who is looking for a laid back holiday!"
