“Free people will love this place! :) We surely were amazed!”
Reviewed January 22, 2017 for a stay in October 2016

The hospitality we received came along with the perfect characters of the people that run the place (or I should say keep the place happy)!!
We had such a perfect sleep, the guys made us feel like home and we will definitely repeat this experience again!!

Thanks so much!

“Idyllic, peaceful haven”
Reviewed January 21, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

The yurts are magical - so peaceful and relaxing. Pawel has created a wonderful off-grid haven in the Sarama valley close to Polis, yet you still have all your amenities like hot showers and wifi. Breakfasts are delicious as is dinner if you pre-order it and Pawel is so friendly and helpful ensuring that your stay is memorable. We will return.

“Just gets better and better!”
Reviewed January 21, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

My wife and I live in Cyprus now and have stayed at these yurts three winters in a row, fantastic experience! We have seen continuous improvements on all levels, not that these yurts needed any improvement to begin with. The main reason this is such a first class class is due to Pawel. Not surprisingly, I learned that he has a lot of previous experience in the tourism industry and bends over backwards to make sure his customers have as perfect a stay as possible. This is a "five star" yurt experience, as contradictory as that might sound, but if you stay here you'll see what I mean. Romantic and cozy, it's the ideal place to stay for a couple of days and completely get away from it all and experience the absolute quiet, fresh air, and breathtakingly beautiful surrounding nature. If that's the kind of place you're looking for, we would highly recommend it!

“Paradise in a Tent”
Reviewed December 29, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

I saw my first Yurt in the new Bridget Jones movie and it inroduced me to the term 'glamping', which is glamorous camping. The Yurt we stayed in certainly was exteemly comfortable and very well insulated. On a cold, wet December night, we actually had the door open, as the little wood-burning stove was putting out so much heat! The site has just three Yurts well spaced out on the terraced hillside. We ate in an equally warm, environmentally-friendly straw house and the food and wine was deliceous. The owne,r Pawel and his staff/friends were all wonderfully welcoming and helpful and we felt like family straight away. The shower room, washbasin and toilet are situated some distance away along an uneven stone path, so a little bit of a challenge, especially at night in the rain. This was a small inconvenience, far outweighed by the life-enhancing experience we enjoyed. We will return.

“Cyprus outdoor paradise”
Reviewed December 8, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

For all outdoors and nature lovers, the Yurts is a MUST visit! How often do you have an opportunity to experience a taste of Mongolia in the Mediterranean? And how often do you experience an exceptional hospitality here in Cyprus? (locals know what I am talking about..).
The yurts represent a living dream. It is a place where love and peace radiate from every corner, thanks to the owner and his helpers. It is a place where one is warmly welcomed and feels instantly like home, whether you come as a family, as a couple or alone. Yurts are for adventure lovers and those who have an open-mind and think "outside of a box".
The web site of the Yurts provides adequate information including very good and precise directions. The owner is also extremely helpful with answering any enquiries.

The accommodation is as unique as you can imagine and as cozy as in fairytales. A fire place inside the yurts keeps you warm in winter days and creates a magic atmosphere.
There is a self-catering possibility in the fully equipped country kitchen at the owner's house. The heathy breakfast are prepared every morning at a time of your choice and you can ask for any dietary adjustments (very vegan friendly for example).The yurts are located in a secluded peaceful piece of land, hence still close to the seaside towns and villages with dinning and other entertaining options. There are plenty of natural trails to walk/hike, leading to abandoned villages, bridges and a water reservoir, worth exploring. Ask the owner for suggestions!
Our stay in the yurts was unforgettable and we are already planning to return soon!

“Fabulous quiet escape, love Yurts in Cyprus!”
Reviewed November 29, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Spent just 2 nights at the Yurts but would have been very happy to stay longer, I was so warmly welcomed and looked after....arrived work weary and within 24hrs had relaxed and dialled down. Everything has been thought of from Bluetooth speaker to thermos flasks...and the company of one very soppy dog!

“Great place just to chill out”
Reviewed November 28, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We arrived on the Wednesday & got a great welcome from Pavel & his wife. We were shown to our Yurt & explained where everything was & how to use it. We had our two Labradors with us which was one of the reasons we enjoyed the experience so much. ( our dogs rarely go with us on breaks).On the first night we had our meal in the Yurt Which was brought to us by Pavel & his wife which was a very nice touch.
We stayed for 2 nights & as it was starting to get a little colder in November we lit the log burner in the Yurt which was as warm as toast.
We went for various walks in the area, down to the reservoir, up to the deserted old Turkish villages & up to the local village. This place is so peaceful & @ the end of the day sat in front of the Yurt with a bottle of wine was heaven.
The dogs absolutely loved it as they can go any where they wanted to & got on great with Pavels dog.
On the last night we had our meal in the main Straw house. Again everything is so relaxing & there is no hurry to do anything. Pavel's wife is a wonderful cook!
I loved getting up early with the dogs & walking up the hills then come back & having a coffee watching the sun rise. It doesn't get much better than this.
We will be going back after the winter as this is one of the best short breaks we have ever had and its only 40 minute drive from Pegia where we live.
Thank you very much to the owners for making our stay so relaxing & interesting as we have never been in a Yurt before but have already told friends about this gem of a place.
We will definitely be going back.
