“Value for money in the Real (non touristy) Cyprus”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012 via mobile

We have stayed in Kontoyiannis House 3 times - 2008, 2009, 2009. Why? We love the village of Kalavasos where friendly Cypriate families live; the village square where the elderly gentlemen gather during the day to drink coffee and play games; the private, sunny and pot plant-filled courtyard of the house; great fresh produce in the area, the central location of the village midway between Larnaca and Limasol, and the fact that overall, you are getting basic self catering accommodation at a good rate. I stress basic, so that your expectations are managed. And the owners are quirky. There are no instructions on arrival - John will meet you at the house and tell you what he remembers, but even he will admit he does not know how to work the TV/satellite. (Tip: the washing machine is outside by the BBQ.) Your welcome pack will always include a bottle of wine (much appreciated), a loaf of local bread, bag of grapes from the family property and sachets of instant coffee and sugar, so remember to ask John for directions to the grocery shop in the adjacent village. In summer, make sure you book with aircon, which costs extra. As for the rest, just relax

Nice place to stay to get away from it all but easy 5 min drive to the beach. Very peaceful. Villas immaculate with a brilliant patio to sit out on and enjoy food and drink

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2007

My husband and I stayed at Kontoyiannis House for several days. The apartment was situated on the ground floor. It was pretty standard for a self-catering style apartment. The appeal was in the nice patio and village location. We did not get to spend much time enjoying the patio because it was too cold for most of our visit. I would love to see it in the springtime.

It was a little disconcerting to hear the cars driving by on the narrow village street just outside. You learned to peek around the corner before stepping outside the door. Once we became accustomed to the noise, we found it pretty funny.

We had internet access and satellite TV - although most of the channels were not in English. This is not a luxury establishment, but a very nice, basic accommodation for those who want to be away from the crowds and the hubbub of the city. It is close enough to drive to both Larnaca and Limassol and makes a good base of operations for exploring the country.

  • Liked — away from crowds
  • Disliked — Communication with staff difficult as none were on site.
