I was in Cyprus for a conference and decided to make a holiday of it, so I started off with a week in Vavla, staying at the Vavla Rustic Retreat. What a great decision that was. The owners responded quickly to all emails while I was planning my stay, and they were so helpful once I was there. I enjoyed meeting them, and I was lucky enough to get a tour of the family orchard, complete with a handful of tree ripened figs. The building itself (and all the rooms - I had a tour) is stunning. An earlier review said it is just like the photos, but I disagree - it was even better than the photos! Photos cannot capture the silence of the surrounding village, or the cooing of the nearby pigeons, or the feel of the stone floors on bare feet. The kitchen was small but very well equipped, with every appliance one might need, and a few others besides. A car is definitely required for a stay here, but since I wanted to explore the island by car, the slightly-off-the-beaten-track location was ideal for me. I stayed 7 nights, and I was very sad to leave. Vavla holds a special place in my memories.
