|Minimum Stay||1 - 4 nights|
Recently renovated, the Garden Apartment maintains the high standards set in the Terrace Apartment. The kitchen has all the modern conveniences you would expect including full size oven and hob, fridge freezer, dishwasher and microwave. It also has plenty of equipment to serve up whatever meal takes your fancy, from a quick snack to a full roast dinner! In the lounge you will find a TV, DVD and a hi fi system complete with iPod dock together with a sellection of maps and guide books. The bathroom is well appointed with modern sanitary ware as well as towels for the shower and pool. The bedrooms are set up as a double and a twin and have enough wardrobe space for everyone - although a pair of shorts and T shirt are not going to take up that much room! Outside you have your own patio area complete with furniture to enjoy an al fresco meal.
Located in the eastern foothills of the Troodos Mountains, our apartments offer value for money holiday accommodation but with all the modern conveniences you would expect of somewhere more expensive. Relax by the pool, laze in a hammock among the olive trees or read a book on the terrace, Cyprus Country Holidays is all about unwinding and recharging. After a day of exploring – Larnaca and Nicosia are 40 minutes away and Limassol a mere 30 – what could be nicer than coming back to your own space, picking a lemon to add to your gin and tonic and enjoying the cool evening air. If you time it right you could be serenaded as the breeze carries the sound of the local nuns singing evolution.

This is our fifth time staying with Neal & Shane at Vavla. The accommodation is furnished to a very high standard. Located in the foothills of the Troodos mountains the views are breath taking. This is the ideal place to go to unwind and re charge your batteries. The most strenuous thing you do could be collecting the fresh eggs each morning or floating in the pool cooling off. If you need ideas of where to visit ar eat Shane and Neal are always available to offer their advice. If you want to explore it is easy to visit Nicosia, Larnaca, Limassol and even Paphos. We visited all as well as a wonderful drive into the Troodos mountains.
This is certainly 5 star accommodation with 5 star hosts. Thank you.
We stayed in the two bedroomed apartment at the orchard/ pool level.
The rooms were well maintained with fresh linen when requred. Pool towels were offered for outside bathing. All kitchen facilities were provided. BBQ is offered for outside catering.The owners, Neal and Shane, can't do enough for you to make your stay enjoyable and will offer advice on where to sightsee and eat. Being on site they are there for advice and help 24/7.
We certainly hit the jackpot when we discovered this little gem of a retreat. Quiet, relaxing and just what we needed to ensure we returned to the UK relaxed and refreshed.
As for our hosts... well they really go the extra mile to ensure our stay was all it should be... even provided some parts to fix our car... Shane you are a star!
Loved the fresh eggs and welcome we got each morning from the cats... DIVA we love you!
What a great place to stay! The 'Garden Apartment' was just what we needed... peaceful, tranquil and easy to get to places especially the mountains.
The weather has been everything we hoped for, except perhaps the thunder and lightning and torrential rain of one night... day time temperatures have been great... nights a bit cool.
To be recommended...
...the Artemis nature traill from near Troodos village
...Armes nature trail from Agios Dimitrianos
...Fikardou up to the col towards Lazanais We weren't too keen on the Agia Napa Cape Grecko end of the island... although the cape was nice.
This has been a good place to stay in Spring... flowers were great, the blossom beautiful and one of our highlights was picking grapefruit from the garden for breakfast.
Thank you Neal and Shane for being such friendly hosts... and the cats!
This was my first trip to Cyprus and I'm so glad I chose The Garden Apartment at Vavla. Travel hand baggage only as there are books, DVDs and towels aplenty.
The location is typically Cypriot with lemon, olive and fig trees in the garden and views of hills. Cypriot crazy paved patios and stone walls around the pool are lovely. The place is quiet and peaceful yet there's a variety of restaurants nearby.
I loved sitting in silence on a sun bed at midnight looking at the stars and Milky Way without any light pollution!
The apartment itself is clean and comfortable - a clever modern conversion which is ideal for holidays.
Neal and Shane were, variously, good company, low profile, kind and helpful - most especially when my daughter had a problem with her flight home and when the car wouldn't start.
I would love to stay here again. ( for those who want super internet connection tho', it's a bit hit and miss on the property )
Very pleasant stay.
We are about 20 minutes drive from popular tourist beaches. Travel another 5 minutes or so and you can find some 'off the beaten track' gems that you will probably have all to yourself.
The nearest airport is Larnaca (LCA) which is around 35 minutes drive away. If you want to arrive at Pafos (PFO) you can expect a journey time of about 1 hour 10 minutes. If you want to do nothing but laze around we can pick you up from the airport but if you want to go off and explore a little (and there is so much to see and do in Cyprus) we strongly recommend renting a car. We really are in the country so, just like the UK, there is very little public transport.
We are centrally placed to go off and discover Cyprus. In 10 – 15 minutes you can be on the motorway that runs along the southern coast. Lefkara, a well known tourist spot famous for its lace making, is 10 minutes away or go and look at the Neolithic settlement at Choirokitia – 15 minutes drive away.
We want you to enjoy your holiday with us and as such will always endeavour to do that little bit extra. Please talk to us if you have special requirements, if you would like us to get your shopping done ready for when you arrive or just want to get a feel for what we offer.
