Overview

About the property

4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, private pool, spacious living indoors and out.

Kyrenia House is built on a headland with stunning views across to the village of Agios Theodoros with the hills and mountains beyond. It is set in a large established garden with olive trees and a fruit orchard (apricots, figs, pomegranates and grape vine in season). There is a large private swimming pool and spacious patio areas for lounging and outdoor dining.

The house has 4 bedrooms (2 doubles, 1 twin bedded and a bunk bedded room). The large double rooms (with king size beds) and twin bed room all have en suite shower rooms and adjoining dressing rooms. Both double rooms have patio doors leading to the terrace and pool. The bunk bedded room is suitable for children only. There is an additional guest toilet.

The living space incorporates a well equipped modern kitchen, dining area and comfortable seating with large patio doors out to the pool and garden.

Agios Theodoros is a traditional village set in the hills a few minutes’ drive inland from the south coast between Larnaca and Limassol. Although a rural community mainly concerned with growing citrus fruits, olives, etc., together with farming sheep and goats for their milk and meat, it is less than 15 minutes from the major highway network linking Nicosia (45 km), Larnaca (32 km), Limassol (40 km) and Larnaca Airport (40 km). This makes it an ideal location for visiting the numerous places of interest on the island. The village itself (a 10 minutes walk downhill – a bit longer back up!) has a choice of tavernas, a butcher and a well-stocked small supermarket.

The house includes:

Fully equipped kitchen with fridge freezer, gas hob, electric oven, extractor, microwave, fitted cabinets, crockery, cutlery, pots, pans, electric kettle, toaster and dishwasher. Washing machine in separate utility cupboard with iron, ironing board and clothes airer.

Flat screen TV, DVD player and speakers for MP3 players in living room.

A 9m x 5m swimming pool (graduated in depth) with sunbeds and deck chairs. Pool is maintained regularly and to a high standard. Pergolas for shade. Outside shower, patio tables and chairs for outside dining at front and back of house. Children are of course very welcome, but the swimming pool is directly accessible from the house and there are no guards around the edge

Air conditioning units for cooling and heating in all bedrooms except bunk room (portable fans available). Two large ceiling fans in living room.

All bed linen and towels provided, including beach towels. Cleaning and a change of bed linen and towels will be carried out once a week. The price does not include additional housekeeping services but please enquire if you wish this to be arranged.

There is ample private parking and, as the house is single storey, it is suitable for elderly guests

Electricity included in price for reasonable usage calculated at €10 per day. Anything above will be charged at 25 cents per unit.

There is also a child bed, cot and high chair available.

No smoking is permitted on the property, inside or out.

The location of Kyrenia House means that wifi is not available without a USB dongle. However, the house is on a hill and friends and family access the internet via High Speed Packet Access on their smart phones (better than 3g but not quite 4g). The mobile signal is strong. Nearby beaches have wifi, as do local stores.

Nearest beach:

Approx. 10 minutes drive. There are a number of small sandy beaches along the coast, with cafés, sun loungers for hire etc. .

Transport:

A car is essential. Remember – they drive on the left in Cyprus so driving is easy.

Things to do

Walk in the hills behind the house – especially beautiful in springtime when the wildflowers are everywhere. At the top of the hill you can see the sea.

It’s a great place for cycling. Many companies nearby offer both road and mountain bikes for hire.

For divers there is the Zenobia off Larnaca Bay (only 25 miles away).

Places to visit nearby:

Mazotos Camel Park is a short drive along the coast, where you can pet the donkeys and horses, ride on a camel and enjoy the pool and restaurant for a day.

Lefkara is a traditional mountain village famous for lace making and silver. On the way there you can drop in on the Ayia Minas convent and a nearby winery for a taste of the local wine.

The fishing village of Zygi is approximately 10km away with its beautiful new harbour and many fish restaurants.

Further afield:

The magnificent Roman and Greek ruined city of Curium (just the other side of Limassol)

The Fassouri water park (Limassol) or Waterworld at Ayia Napa and/or

Nicosia Old Town

Monasteries at Maheiras, Kykko and Stavrovouni among others

The Caledonian Waterfalls in the Troodos mountains

Excellent villa in a lovely rural location.

  • 5 of 5

Clean,comfortable and well equipped. Rural location but close to the sea. A short stroll to local village with 3 good restaurants, supermarkets and a cafe with friendly locals and freshly squeezed orange juice. Good sized well maintained swimming pool and Elena was very helpful. Enjoyed lazing by the pool, BBQs and generally having a very relaxing holiday. Would definitely come again. The Sculpture Park near Mazotos and Ktima Demetriou Rural Museum were both very interesting and also the Classic Car Museum at Limassol are all worth a visit.

October Half term holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our holiday after spending two relaxing weeks at the villa. The villa was even better than we had hoped, we loved that each bedroom had it's own bathroom and dressing room which made the bedrooms feel very spacious and uncluttered. The lounge/dining area was very comfortable and airy and made cooking/eating very easy with the choice of dining table and outside eating areas.

It felt very peaceful and will miss sitting outside looking out over AgiosTheodoros having breakfast. Rambo was an added bonus and was a lovely visitor to the villa each day! Thank you Elizabeth for the welcome pack when we arrived which was a lovely surprise after our late arrival on the first evening. We would love to return an0d would highly recommend the villa for anyone wanting a quiet retreat.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for this glowing review. I am so glad you enjoyed a peaceful and relaxing holiday and thank you for your comments about the house itself. P.S. For the sake of other readers I must point out that Rambo is a cat! Any other daily visitor might be a bit unnerving!

Absolute pleasure

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Cyprus and we wanted to experience something away from the busy tourist areas and the villa ticked all the boxes. We had a good time enjoying the pool and the fantastic views that surrounded the villa and the tranquility it offered. My family and I would recommend this beautiful Villa anytime. P Tofis

Amazing and spacious

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for two weeks. The bedrooms are massive and the air conditioning was very well appreciated as we were there the last week in July and first week in August. The property is well equipped and the swimming pool is perfect. It is clean and tidy, with information in the folder and on the shelves. We were not bothered by mosquitos at all but there were a few wasps around. There is a big supermarket, Alpha Mega (sold items from tesco) about a 10 minutes drive away near the entrance/exit for the motorway for Limassol/Larnaca. The nearest doctors is in Kofonu and the nearest pharmacy is at the services on the way to Limassol (hopefully you won't need them). You definitely need a car but everything is well sign posted. Dave the pool man is the font of all knowledge (water parks, restaurants, days out etc). We had a lovely day out at the Camel Park which is only a short drive away (great food in the restaurant and take your swim wear) and there are two very quiet beaches with sunlounges and umbrella shade to hire just down the road. The location is wonderfully quiet and it has lovely views into the town and the hills. Elena (the cleaner) is the only neighbor and was super helpful when we had any queries. The harbor/port at Limassol was very lively at nighttime but everything is quite spaced out, there were lots of ice cream places. The town of Larnaca is more compact, there is a small castle/fort to walk around and lots of restaurants on the sea front. We also liked Zigi which is a small harbour with a few restaurants, not too touristy. We went to the Fasouri water park in Limassol (children pay adult entrance at the age of 12), there was lots of rides for all ages and very short queues, lockers were reasonably priced as was the food/drinks. It is easily a whole day adventure. It takes no more than 30 minutes to get to Larnaca and about 45 minutes to Limassol. We had a lovely stay and would be happy to return again in the future. We have already passed on the details to friends who may be interested in a winter break (there is a log burner in the lounge).

cosiness & comfort with fabulous views

  • 5 of 5

We spent a memorable time in Kyrenia House. It is a pitty that we stayed so short (as we were travelling during day time and arrived late in the evenings). The house is very comfortable and decorated with taste. The only minus - there is no free WIFI in the property and aircond. in the livving room. But we managed without these! One can find a bunch of info material left in the house. And for your comfort there are two fans on the ceilings and a portable fan. The sleeping rooms are ecquiped with aircond, spacious with seperate spacious dressing rooms.

The pool is cooling and enormous. One can find pool tools for water games in the shelter.

There is also a possibility to have a BBQ.

The kitchen is well equiped, too. You can find blenders, juicer, food processor, etc.

The house is perfect for kids. We noticed a chair for kids, a low sleeping bed.

I can't help telling about the books... there is a shelf of interesting books (different style, inculding guides) displayed for visitors. If you are tired of sightseeing or travelling, you can take one and immerse in its world with no pressure, make your favourite cup of tea, admire the mountains or the scenery of the village down the hill.

You should go to the village to try fresh orange juice in local cafeteria/shop, too. These were the sweetest we tried in CY!

About Elizabeth Pamboris

Kyrenia House was built by my Cypriot husband in 2007 as a holiday home for our family who reside in UK. I am now "actively retired" living in East Sussex, after working in education administration. I want to ensure that guests at Kyrenia House have as good a time as we have in the past.

Elizabeth Pamboris purchased this villa in 2007

Why Elizabeth Pamboris chose Agios Theodoros

The house was built as a home from home for my family. It is therefore spacious, comfortable and well equipped. The house sits on a headland overlooking the village, so enjoys beautiful views yet is close to the village amenities.
