My good Iady and I had the great pleasure of staying, for an all too brief 2 weeks, in this wonderful bijou hotel.
The rooms themselves were exquisitely appointed, very evocative and perfectly maintained throughout. They are secluded, peaceful and full of character.
What really sets this place above the norm is the wonderful hospitality and warm appreciation that the hostess and proprieter Androulla bestows upon her guests.
What I must recommend most highly of all is the wonderful homecooking made available on request to her guests by Androulla which is beautifully prepared, locally sourced, very reasonable and generously proportioned. - It is to be highly recommended. Vegetarian options are also available on request.
The village of Treis Elies has retained all of it's character and fine Cypriot coffee is available to the friendly traveller in any of three traditional kafenia in the village.
There is a small but dependable shop in the town which is run by the highly personable friendly and splendid Iannis who speaks perfect English - should your Greek be a little rusty!
The villa hotel itself is the perfect base for exploring the region and there are even several short-medium walks within a short drive.
It is also within a reasonably short drive of the Trodos hiking resort where many walks of varying degrees are laid out.
Day trips to the coast are easily do-able with a good morning start.
In short if you are considering staying in the Trodos area - I would highly recommend Spitiko toy Archonta and Treis Elies as, as authentic a Cypriot experience you could hope to gain while on vacation. Wonderful.
