About the property

Cooking allows you to have travels, adventures & journeys without going anywhere

The Cookery School Cyprus is a working cookery school based in a beautiful old Inn (‘To Hani’ in Greek), located 10 minutes drive up the mountain overlooking Limassol.

You’ll love the ambience of the traditional building steeped in history.

Good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, families (with kids), and those travelling with pets (we have 3 dogs and a cat that live on site). There are 5 rooms to rent in total, 3 double and 2 twin (2 x single beds) all with ensuite.

The Cookery School restaurant is open for Sunday Lunch and Wednesday evening dinners. Booking is essential, you can view the menus in advance on our social media pages or website. We also have a reasonably priced bar which is open with the restaurant.

Please be aware that this is a working Cookery School and whilst we may not have something on every day we often have Cookery Workshops and private parties and functions throughout the week and at different times of day and evening. Whilst all rooms are private there may be other guests in the common areas.

About The Cookery School

100+ years ago when the only way to travel was on a donkey’s back, the journey to Limassol town from the surrounding villages would take 2 or 3 days. The presence of a place offering warm food and shelter mid-way would have been a welcome sight indeed.

'To Hani tis Paramythas' was that place. The Cookery School Cyprus is carrying on the tradition of warm hospitality and delicious food at To Hani.

With the owner’s help, we have tackled the transition of the building from restaurant to cookery school, transforming the spaces with beautiful furniture renovated by hand in a French antique style. To Hani’s former function as an Inn has also been restored by opening up 5 of the 9 bedrooms as Bed and Breakfast, offering a truly unique visitor experience.

We can now provide not only traditional Bed and Breakfast but residential Cookery Courses which are particularly popular with European holidaymakers. Please ask if you would like to take part in a cookery workshop during your stay.

***Please note that the prices quoted are for 5 rooms on a B&B basis, if you would like a different number of rooms please message for a quote.***

Why Tracey chose Paramytha

We moved into this beautiful old Inn in October 2016 and having 9 bedrooms we decided that other people might enjoy staying here too!

What makes this bed and breakfast unique

We are unique in Cyprus offering traditional B&B, restaurant facilities twice per week and the option to enjoy a Cookery Workshop and learn about local, or indeed any, cuisine.
