Le Balcon 'Gite' Sleeps 2
Not your typical tourist accommodation, the Old Elementary School of Peyia harks back to a bygone age set deep in the heart of the village.
Once derelict, it has been lovingly and painstakingly restored and now offers 2 separate 'Gite style' apartments fondly known as Le Gite D'ete (Summer house) and Le Balcon. Whilst Le Gite D'ete is slightly smaller than Le Balcon, they are both full of distinctive 'old Greek' charm and character whilst including modern conveniences.
The setting and courtyards are often likened to a set in Mama Mia ...this secluded oasis appeals to the discerning traveller who seek privacy and comfort within friendly and attractive surroundings.
Entrance is via the old courtyard, completely enclosed and separate from the street. It is a wash with colour, vivid pinks and red bougainvillea cascading over white walls and complimented by the Mykonos blue doors and shutters.
Le Gite D'ete is situated in and around the garden area and looks out onto the swimming pool that both Gites share (a maximum of 2 adults in each).
Lemon trees hang boldly over the swimming pool and gentle breezes carry the scent of Rosemary, Sage and Thyme.
The panoramic views from Le Balcon overlook the church, a mishmash of roof tops and out to the coast to the sparkling waters of the Mediterranean.
When you've had enough of relaxing around the pool, Peyia is an excellent base from which to explore the beautiful island of Cyprus.

Cypress in April
Malcom and Carol advised us to rent the hire car through them, this turned out to be a really brilliant suggestion because we were met at the airport and taken to the apartment, this house would be difficult to find otherwise. Once here we were so pleased with the welcome pack, the fridge had little bottles of water,wine & beer. Bread rolls cold meat butter and milk we could go on the list was endless everything you would need after a tiring journey.
The apartment was clean and well presented the view from the balcony was wonderful. The information folder was very helpful.The WiFi kicked out on our first day but was soon rectified by Carol.
We would thoroughly recommend this apartment.
Many thanks for such a lovely review .... it's always good to know that we're doing our job right ... it makes everything so worth while when we know our guests have enjoyed their stay with us.
Cheers guys !! ..... and we hope to see you again in the not too distant future !

Great place to stay!
Le Balcon Gite was perfect for our stay in Cyprus which felt far too short!
This holiday had everything we could have wished. Carole who welcomed us was friendly and very accommodating. Couldn’t have wished for more. Location was brilliant for local food options and we were able to visit many of the recommended sights. Excellent all round.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review.
We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us ...and it makes us proud that after so many years in this business, that we remain keen on focusing on the detail that makes our guests feel welcome and fills them with such happy memories.
We hope that you will return in the not too distant future... you'll be most welcome !
Fabulous, an oasis, position of Le Balcon can not be faulted, Malcolm couldnt have been more helpful
From pick up stress free. Car hire company recommended drove us (in evening) from Pahos airport to Old Village school where our car was parked waiting although for a few days you could manage without one. Welcome pack appreciated. The Photos barely do justice. We loved the pool and used it !!! even if some locals surprised as we were only in March.
A secluded position , yet near small local supermarket and taverna provide you all that you need. For a couple ideal and consider booking it with Le Gite for some together time.
This place is a true gem. The whole ensemble breathes elaborate taste, love for detail & and the greek way of life. It grants for privacy, peace and an interesting neighbourhood. We enjoyed every second of our stay & thank Carole, Malcom and Jackie for the overwhelming support. It was a pleasure meeting you and this lovely hideaway!
Thank you for such kind words and we're so happy that you enjoyed your stay. Receiving reviews like this, makes all of our efforts so worthwhile .... We have a great team to work with, all carefully chosen for their friendliness, care and attention to detail. We hope you'll visit us again in the not too distant future - you'll be more than welcome !

The property on all its levels and twists and turns is idyllic, and has an aged, established feel that is immediately homely. The garden and planted pots are well-kept and gorgeous, even in October. The apartment itself is ideal for 2 people, and thoughtfully and intelligently designed, simple but far from sparse. It is high enough to be above the business of the surrounding houses/shops, etc., so it is a peaceful, un-overlooked space looking down on a bustling village life - a nice combo. There are many nice touches in the way the apartment is kitted out, e.g. crockery is hand-thrown pottery from Lempa. The apartment is well-appointed for shops and restaurants, and the car-hire service that is offered was brilliant, including our own parking space next to the gite. We will definitely return.
