We visited Tochni after being upgraded by Cyprus villages having booked for Kalavasos,traveling
as a family group ageing from 50/65,we arrived at the the Cyprus villages reception, not knowing anything about our accommodation greeted by a very pleasant receptionist whom took some of our party on foot to Yiannis holiday villa .The villa was very quaint great views of village,on the slight downside we were all taken aback by all the stairs and steep slopes to be negotiated you need to be reasonably fit having said that it is a village built on the sides of a valley. After looking
over our accommodation for the night we set of back up to the taverna for lunch stunning views,
and food with village wine!!!!! . Probably a good thing as our villa was not very well equipped
for self catering nor was the kitchen area very clean.That aside every thing else was great,
my wife and myself stay long term in a modern villa in Cyprus and it was good to stay in very old and quaint accommodation .
