From the first communication Joanne proved to be warm and hospitable, and very welcoming. All the arrangements worked perfectly, from collection of our hire car at the airport to the map to get us to Bourgainvillea B & B. We were personally guided to our first night supper in a local restaurant. We found our room to be spacious, well appointed and very comfortable. (The one with the balcony) The primary school next door provided much local colour with the children joyfully practising their Easter songs and dances each morning ready to present to their parents. Joanne was a mine of information about what to visit and where to go. Her breakfasts were a feast themselves and set us up very well for a day out and about, and in our seven night stay we had a different one each morning, a feat in itself! To smell the orange blossom whilst breakfasting on the patio, in the sunshine, was a great treat. There was no dinner option at the time we stayed, but there are good choices in the village and in Larnaca, so it was not a problem for us to find a meal before we returned each evening.
Be aware that Joanne does not have a payment card facility, though there is a cash machine in the Bank of Cyprus in the next village, about three miles away.
