Cyprus has changed a lot in the last few years, and for those of us who know it well, Cypriot village life still embodies the true essence of Cyprus - and nowhere has achieved that more beautifully for me in recent years than Dalla's Cyprus Retreat.
I stayed here for a week with my partner in July as the accommodation is a stone's throw from Zygi - a gorgeous (and personal favourite) fishing village which is slowly being regenerated, in-keeping with traditional Cypriot style a The facilities were excellent: very clean, comfortable and spacious. The village of Maroni, relatively unknown to me, was even more beautiful than described and oozed Cypriot charm.
Dalla (the owner) was on hand to offer advice on local places to eat and drink and to answer questions we had about the village. I couldn't have asked for a warmer welcome. My partner and I will definitely be staying again!
