A mitato is a hut to provide shelter to shepherds consisting of one large room that had been subdivided into living, working and storage spaces as needed.
We feel our humble dwelling is a modern interpretation of this ideal and we hope that all your requirements will be catered . Although compact the space is very well equipped for all the needs of the travellers who wish to explore the Akamas Peninsula as we love to do.
We will always be available to assist if required and are very happy to share our knowledge of the area, the walks , cycle routes.We have a small speed boat and excursions are available at very competitive rates for us to show you personally the bays around the Akamas Penninsula.
We have a kayak available for you to use as well as mountain bikes as well
If you wish to rent out your own craft then we would recommend Latchi Water Sports who will be more than happy to accommodate your needs.
The countryside is fantastic for walking whether it be to the deserted villages in the hills or to the sea and all the route maps are at your disposal.
There are flasks for picnics, which we can provide on request as well as Nordic poles.
The GPS coordinates are "E and it is very important you refer to them as it can be rather confusing as on Maps the Street is still named Elia Tavrou after the original Muktah (local village mayor) but all the road signs now refer to it as 31Georgio Paraskeva
On your arrival, if we cannot meet you, then the keys will be located in the key safe on the wall behind the back gate, the code for which we will have given you earlier when you booked with us.We will always only use the outer bolt on the gate but suggest when you are settled you use both if it is windy.
As you drive up the main road from Latchi into the village, the public parking is in the right hand side just before the Public Phone box and only 150 meters from Mitato .
We recommend you park there as the turning into the rear courtyard area of Mitato is a very tight turn and for our neighbours only and we want to respect their privacy.
Mitato is located on the left hand opposite side to the public Phone box 3 buildings up.
The hanging sign on the top foremost corner of the building will be visible (and at night the external light will be on to guide you).
Neo Chorio is a lovley village and there are several Tavernas but for the most authentic and fresh food Smyges at the top of the street is best with music usually played by locals on Fridays.Koopas is closer by and we would recommend the octopus especially as a starter.
For coffee and cake Alexis next door but one to Mitato, is delightful.
In Latchi there are several European style restaurants and Debbie’s is great for a bacon buttie after a brisk walk down the hill.
For special occasions Old Town in Polis is a wonderful restaurant, we think one of the best on the island and one of our favourites.
Further a field there is obviously a huge variety but Araouzos Tavern, Kathikas serves delicious local dishes and offers a fantastic warm welcome
We have a deadicated private parking area at the rear of Mitato.
It is an 8km walk into Latchi which we love to do if you are up for it.
There is a local bus service that runs every 20 minutes into Latchi and Polis and on to Pafos.
