I spent 2 unforgettable nights on my recent trip to Cyprus and because I was in the round area I preferred to book somewhere familiar than getting to another house. My last visit here had to do with the best memories and I am now leaving with even better! The view from the terrace is stunning since the house is built on a slope opposite the historical church of the village.
This 300 year old stone-built structure with the beautiful yard, also made of stone is like an oasis for the guests. It keeps the traditional architecture even though the upper storey was added in 1902.
The hotel is very close to Larnaca (20kms) and I urge tourists visiting Cyprus to come here even for a couple of nights before flying back. There are daily buses coming here and you can get information from the owners.
Many consider Cyprus ideal for beach holidays but the truth is that the real beauty is found in these small villages. It is where you come across the real authentic Cypriots who are warm and very friendly.
The tavern opposite the church gives an alternative if you don’t wish to cook in the house. Besides the warm people I found here excellent food and local cuisine and it is like a meeting point for tourists who come here to dine in the evenings. I only had a snack in the house and dined out here the two nights I was in Tochni.
Vasilopoulos traditional house is a gem in the village ideal for peace and tranquillity. If you love walking, history, relaxing and country life this is the most unique place to visit.
I only wish I could stay longer!
