“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

First of all we had an absolutely lovely time!! The village is small and beautifull and perfect for a quite getaway all year round! The look and feel of the accomodation is a beautiful blend of modern and traditional architecture. The rooms was very comfortable and housed a sattelite tv, heating/airconditioning, luxurious bathrooms and a fully equipped kitchen and a very cozy fireplace. The accomodation provides everything needed for your everyday needs such as towels, toiletry, sheets, blankets etc. The rooms were super clean and the staff was very kind (they offered us fresh mandarins and oranges from their "pervoli" - orchard). Definitely a place we will revisit in the future!!

I stayed in Vavla Rustic Retreat with my parents and my husband and the only thing we can say is that we fell in love with the place! Everything was perfectly cleaned, tidy, warm and really reminds you traditional Cyprus houses. The owners are hospitable and very friendly. I highly reccomend the place for any occasion any time of the year!!!

We only stayed here one night in January but will definitely return. The place is beautifully renovated and eqipped to a very high standard giving the atmosphere of an old Cypriot village house but with comfort. The central courtyard make it perfect venue for a group of friends or family to go together. Although there is no shop or taverna in the village there are good cooking facilities. However, we took up the suggestion of Kelley and booked an evening meal with some frindly local neighbours and had a great evening. They were real characters and good food too. We even went back for breakfast the next day.
Lovely touches in the retreat. Local honey, herbs and gorgeous soap!

We stayed in Vavla Rustic retreat (Mulberry studio) with my husband for a night in January. I loved this place! Really nice interior & inner yard, and you can find in your room everything you need (the kitchen is equipped better than my own in my place =) Unfortunately, we didn't meet Kelley, but she left us inctructions and we got in without any problems - so it's great that you can arrive any time.
The surroundings are very beautiful - the Vavla village is perhaps the prettiest village we've seen in Cyprus. But notice that we didn't find any cafes or taverns there, so you'd better plan your meal in advance.

And we definetely recommend you to have dinner at 'Our house' with Donna Marie and George! They live close to Vavla Rustic Retreat and are a really nice couple

We stayed at the retreat for my friend's hen weekend in October and then visited again over the Christmas period with family. Both times we had a great time. The retreat is lovely - traditional, Cypriot accommodation with modern conveniences; the rooms are all so well-equipped and impeccably clean. Kelley is so friendly and helpful - within minutes you feel like you've known her for years. As for the surrounding areas, Vavla village is a lovely village to go for a walk in. And the next village, Kato Drys, is definitely worth visiting. There's a really interesting Bee Museum (no, seriously) and brunch at Jars is a must, but book in advance. So overall, a great weekend away. I will definitely be back and i highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Stayed in Anoi which is lovely, good for a group. Have also stayed in Maeirko, also very nice, thoug...
