“A really special place to stay in the mountains”
Reviewed 5 April 2009

To Spitiko in Treis Elies was the highlight of our holiday in Cyprus. It's an old restored house in a small village, set in spectacular countryside in the Troodos mountains. The two apartments are fitted out in rustic style, full of characterful old furniture. The village is small and peaceful; there are no other hotels and no other tourists! There is a village shop where you can buy provisions - a good chance to meet some locals.

What made To Spitiko particularly special for us was the wonderful host, Androula. She was always very friendly and welcoming, gave us helpful advice on local walks (as well as a packed lunch!), and cooked up a cracking supper. We really felt at home with her - almost part of the family.

To Spitiko is a very special place to stay in beautiful, isolated surroundings, and with a wonderful host. We'd heartily recommend it.

An uncommon tranquility greeted us in the charmingly named village of Tries Elies (Three Olives). My husband and I (and our nine-month old!) booked the cosy self-catering cottage (with fireplace) at To Spitiko tou Archonta for a weekend of relaxation and scenic touring. We agreed with our hostess Androula on our meals in advance and a hot pot of Cypriot traditional chicken and lemon soup awaited us upon arrival. Androula's full menu is on her website and she even offers to teach guests how to cook! Her kitchen is a marvel and she uses wonderful ingredients like Candula petals in her salads.
For two days, we ventured into surrounding villages and dined both in tavernas and back at the cottage with another lovely trout meal prepared by our attentive hostess. Our two-room cottage was full of books and games and gorgeous antique furniture and trinkets. The view of the village and mountains is lovely and there is a space outside the cottage for dining or drinking coffee in the sun.
We also peeked at the second space Androula offers, above where she lives, and which sleeps six and is also fully self-catering.
The village does not offer anything in the way of restaurants or entertainment, but it is nestled in a gorgeous valley with the exquisite Venetian bridges accessible by walks or car.
Androula can recommend wonderful picnic spots, fun excursions, long walks and very lovely drives.
We would recommend this for the traveler who is looking for an off-the-beaten track get-away in full comfort and taste in an unspoiled area of Cyprus!
