"OUR HOUSE", an escape from reality!
Our House is built in the 'long style' around a private courtyard offering peace and privacy, adorned by four stone kamaras (arches), three traditional ovens, barbeque and our relaxing water wall. Lovely views of the village and mountains from roof top open-air patio adorned by a mature grape vine.
We have preserved the original rooms of our completely restored country house and their names derive from their original usage. The Shelonari, Kellari and the Terratzo Spito. Today Our House offers three private double bedded rooms with en-suites bathroom. Each room has special pieces of antique hand carved furnishings, the bed is graced with a hand made crocheted bedspread, under floor heating and ceiling fans. Rooms open to the large private central courtyard with its Jacuzzi and relaxing water wall. Enjoy the comfortable sitting room with fireplace and television, the open-air roof patio where you are welcome to enjoy the view, the warm rays of the sun, the cool breeze and the magnificent night sky!
Enjoy wonderful hospitality. Your Hosts: George and Donna Marie are on premise to enhance your comfort. Better yet, treat yourself to the taste of real village life. Go to the "vraktee" (adjoining backyard) pick some figs from our trees-or maybe apricots, then enjoy our village breakfast...Cracked green olives, local cheese, home made marmalade... Dinners available by arrangement, with hot home made bread and traditional food from the wood fired stone oven...Uummm. Afternoon coffee, refreshing beverage and some home made pastry.
If you are relaxed and recharged you want to be out and about....By foot there is the Vavla nature trail. Wildlife enthusiasts will be fascinated by the local flora and fauna. A great area for mountain bike riding, or take to the road and do your mini 'Tour de Vavla" Cyprus has endless archaeological ruins, museums of all types. Location, location, location, with plenty of interesting places to visit only a short drive away, local winery, monastery, archaeological sites, nature trail and woodland walks.
From arrival at Our House to departure four days later we had the most wonderful experience - Our House is an absolute gem if you are looking for a traditional Cypriot farmhouse in the hills, fully modernised, and with delicious homemade food and drinks. We had three lovely traditional rooms off the main courtyard, all exactly as shown on the website. The highlight of our visit was the dinners & breakfasts which are cooked and served by the owners Donna and George. Our family has both vegans & vegetarians as well as meat eaters, all dishes without exception were delicious, made from local produce including from their own garden - this was a real culinary experience, superior to even good restaurant meals. Donna and George are happy to share their recipes and cooking methods as well as being an engaging and entertaining couple. A uniquely memorable experience!…
My boyfriend and I didn't actually stay at Our House - although I wish we had! We were wandering down a random street in Vavla, after wine tasting at Ktima Christoudia, when George greeted us from his balcony. He invited us up to the roof deck for coffee and an amazing view of the countryside. From there we met all 3 Georges (his son and Grandson), Donna Marie (his wife) and his daughter-in-law. The property is stunning - rooftop terrace with grape vines, fruit trees, hot tub, seamless indoor outdoor spaces, and views to die for. And Donna Marie and George were amazing hosts to two random strangers. I can only imagine how they care for their guests! Finally, I should mention George was in the restaurant business for decades in New York, and has an amazing herb collection on the property, so I'm sure the food is fantastic. Looking forward to calling Our House home the next time we're in Cypress.…
George & Donna Marie just made this stay so much nicer. Beautiful food created by beautiful people and nice conversations throughout the stay. Rooms are nice & cozy. Beautiful experience!Thank you to both.
We were delighted to meet the owners who treated us as family. They joined us around the table and gave us great experience and feeling that we are welcome. We are highly reccomend this site as a great site to relax and as a base to start trips. Dana and Michael
Didn't stay here (but would if we came back, the rooms look amazing!). We had a fantastic dinner cooked by George and Donna Marie using local ingredients and dishes. the home made bread was the perfect start and the tavas was incredible.
