This is NOT a hotel or serviced apartment, so do not expect any amenities or service. Seriously, expect none. The good points: good location, good base to explore the island by car. Charming enclosure with a pool, clean apartment. However ... Reception was just OK, the lady doesn't speak very good English and was rather pushy. In the evening there... More

The owner has a lot of apartments in the village (28 or so), so he basically owns almost the whole village. The service is rather lacking and impersonal, as the owner himself doesn't live there, and receival and services was from a lady who speaks poor English and received us very rudely. It was late, but still. The rooms are... More

The rooms are in private courtyards in a quiet village twenty five minutes drive from Larnaca airport. Car essential and puts you ten minutes from the coast and ten minutes from the mountains - even Ayai Napa was barely 40 minutes along the motorway. Fantastic taverna across the street does great value food all day. We wanted to upgrade room... More

Good location in the Island. The place is charming near the village's church . Combined of a few houses, each house is a little different. The rooms are quite big and comfortable. The toilets are quite small. Suites families.

Hotel (it is difficult to call it that as these are set of houses, really, which makes it very unique and private) itself situated in small beautiful village. Place has a great access to whole island, providing you have a car - if you rent, then there is no problem at all (not the best place in terms of access... More

I was instantly attracted to Traditional Village Houses by the photos and the charming reality certainly lived up to the promise. This was my first visit to Cyprus and I found the location an ideal base to get out and about from and a welcoming place to return to. This is a wonderful renovation project, efficiently run by owner Demetris.... More

Feels like going back a 100years. A small, medieval, Mediterranean stone village. Lovely staff, nice owner. Great food, great view. Very close to a big supermarket and highway. Perfect for short trips around the island.

The Traditional Village Houses of Skarinou are not like your regular hotel room. Each house is completely self sufficient.There is a kitchen area with adequate cutlery, serveware and cookware. The super market is hardly 5 minutes walk - so topping up provisions is extremely easy. There is a washing machine and a swimming pool dedicated to each cluster of houses.... More

After staying in two hotels in Paphos and Limassol, it was like entering a totally different aspect of Cypriot hospitality. We were on the 7th day of our eleven day holidays when we arrived in Skarinou, where Mr Demetris (the owner) welcomed us, treating us with cold beverages in such a hot day. It certainly was a change of scenery,... More
