The Lemon Tree House
Absolutely wonderful place with every thing catered for.
A Warm Winter Stay - very comfortable king-size bed, quiet location, excellent vehicle
My partner and I stayed for more than 3 weeks from mid-January and found it to be a very comfortable and quiet place, and the roomy 4wd vehicle was excellent for exploring the nearby hills and feeling confident to drive on some of the unpaved roads and tracks to find the out-of-the-way spots. There are plenty of ways to heat the place, and all the windows and doors have bug screens for when you can and want to open them for fresh air. The living room is comfortable and set up well for hanging out to chat, view the TV screen or read, and the kitchen has whatever you need to cook any meals. It’s a corner unit with citrus trees and nice potted plants, and several options for dining al fresco in the shade. The king-size bed was the comfiest I’ve ever slept in. There were some problems with the water supply from the village but local caretakers Tim and Rita were easy to communicate with for info and solving some problems. Easy walk to the village for restaurant meals or supplies from the village store (which carries the best whole-grain bread made by the local bakery), easy parking in a private compound, friendly and helpful neighbours. On the B road below the village the Papantoniou Supermarket, a gas station, and delicious breakfast or lunch spots are only a 5 min drive away. I was sad to leave our temporary home and I’d definitely stay here again when we return in a year or two.
A little piece of heaven
Lemon Tree House is a beautiful, private retreat that is situated in a very central location for people who want to explore the island. We had no trouble finding the villa and had good communication with the owners in advance and throughout our stay. Check in was seamless and we were delighted to walk into the spotless villa.
The upstairs kitchen and living room has a lovely sunny balcony with a wonderful view. It is a great place for al fresco dining. We were visiting in December and during the evenings we enjoyed the propane stove, which made the villa very cozy indeed.
The master bedroom was spacious with a very comfortable bed, and the room opens onto a sunny patio under the lemon tree that is pictured in the photo. The little village was fun to explore and we enjoyed some lovely walks. We would highly recommend Lemon Tree House to future travellers.
Thank you fore your nice review, Happy uoy liked our house as much as we do ourself!
Terrific homeaway from home
We absolutely loved our stay at Bodil’s lovely home. Her caretaker Tim was the best! It was great to have a place that felt like home. And the air in the bedroom was a lifesaver. Everything you may need the house had. A bonus was squeak. Very verbal and friendly.
The car was great to have use of. It wasn’t as bad on petrol as previously mentioned.
We look forward to returning to lemontree.
Beautiful little oasis close to the pool and a short walk to the village. Lovely views, quiet area
A very well equipped looked after property that instantly felt like home from home but with sea views and sun.
Lovely patio area to sit and relax in.
Suitable for just a couple or a large family as everything is provided making life easy. Would highly recommend.
So glad you enjoyed it as much as we do! Welcome back!
Delightful House with Lovely Views!
We have recently returned from a fortnight's holiday staying in Bodil's Lemon Tree House in Pissouri. Her house has all the amenities you need from a well-stocked kitchen, to TV, DVD player and mini hifi. As you will see, the main living accommodation is on the 1st floor so as to take advantage of the views towards Pissouri Bay which, when there's no haze, is beautiful! The ground floor has two bedrooms (a large double and a twin) and a bathroom. We had breakfast on the balcony every morning! There is an electric awning too to provide some shade.
Communication with Bodil is nothing but excellent and is supported locally by Tim the caretaker should he be required.
Pissouri is a lovely village whose centre is only a 10min walk from the house. There are a number of good restaurants & bars here and we sampled 3: O'Vrakas, The Bunch of Grapes and (our favourite), the Hideaway. The village is ideally located just off the main A6 motorway and is roughly midway between Paphos and Lemossos. The Troodos mountains are within easy reach and Nicosia is about a 1.5 hours drive away. Pissouri Bay is 2 miles down the road and there is a good beach along with a couple more restaurants and some shops. There is a small convenience store in Pissouri village, but there is a very good supermarket back down on the main road and appears to stay open late - even on a Sunday.
Overall, a wonderful property in an excellent location!
Thank you Mark!
So happy you liked the house and Pissouri as much as I do! We use it a lot as ourself.
About 3 kilometers away by car or taxi, down the hill, is Pissouri Bay with a blue flag beach. This area boasts an excellent beach (One of Cyprus few blue flag beaches) with sun beds and shades, watersports, including sailing dingies, windsurfers, jet skis, waterskiing, paragliding, and the sillier speedboat-towed activities and divecenter. Also the 5-star Columbia Hotel, Village and leisure complex, shops and about ten or so restaurants and Tavernas.
Lemontree Villa is 15 minutes’ drive from Paphos Airport and about 1 hour from Larnaca Airport. Transfer to and from both airports can be arranged. Our car, a Honda HRV 1600cc, automatic with air-conditioning is available free of charge to our guests, provided that the driver(s) have current driving licences and are aged between 25 and 70. If the car is off-road for any reason, then it will be up to the guest to arrange alternative car hire. Local facilities are in the village.
Paphos (with Harbor and famous Mosaics) and Limassol are both about 25 minutes' drive away, with many places of archaelogical interest nearby, including Curion, with excellent Roman/Greek/Christian remains, including mosaics and an amphitheatre. The Troodos Mountains are about 40 minutes' drive away, with many interesting villages on the way. Skiing is available during winter months. Mountain biking and walking are also very popular.
Pissouri Village boasts 3 banks, one medium-sized and two smaller supermarkets, numerous traditional tavernas, such as: Moonlight, Vrakla, Hideaway, Pissouriana (with pool), Pissouri Square and Symposium. During the day, you can take a beer or coffee in the square and watch the world pass by ...
There are also about 4 smaller Kebab-type cafes, a Pizza restaurant and a chinese restaurant. In addition, there are the excellent (all three of them) Bunch of Grapes, Hill View, and Olympus Palace restaurants, that offer really good international cuisine. Also there are five bars: Iron Horse, Diver's Bar, Sparti Bar, Red Fever and Sultana Bar. There are no noisy nightclubs - life is very gentle.
Also, between May and October, there are the famous 'Cyprus Nights', every Wednesday in the village square, encompassing three tavernas, and on Friday, at the Vineleaf Tavern, where there are excellent self-service Mezes (eat as much or as little) ( as you like, traditional Greek and Cyprus dancing by professional local performers, and periods during and after the eating and performances for your own disco-style dancing - mainly 60s to 80s music, with some local Cypriot men and ladies doing their macho thing to local music (well worth a seat at the front!!).
