    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    3 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8
    Elaia is in the Nicosia area, in the village of Lythrodontas, a picturesque village on the eastern edge of Troodos with a backdrop of hills and mountains with pine trees, olive trees and aromatic wild herbs.

    Elaia is just a hundred metres from the leafy village square, yet tucked away to offer a secluded, private courtyard with upper and lower patios, quality patio furniture, peaceful, and beautiful with its scented jasmines and other Mediterranean plants.

    The courtyard is completely private and yet you can mingle with the friendly village people in the kafeneion in the village square just a minute's walk away

    The balconies offer another spot to retreat and relax with mountain views.

    Accommodation is spacious and is ideal for groups of friends as well as families. Children can ha...

Our family of five stayed at this amazing villa for ten days. We have stayed at many Holiday Lets and this is the best we have rented by a long shot. The photos do not do justice to this incredible villa. It is well equiped, spacious and pristine inside and out. more

The village was very nice... more
