“Excellent Hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014

Great houses with a true sense of the simple village lifestyle. Very spacious and the porch was lovely to sit and have romantic meals.
Maria the caretaker was very kind and helpful.
Definitely recommended stay in Cyprus.

We stayed 4 days at the traditionnal village houses of Skarinou and it was definetly not enough.Mr Dimitri the owner arranged everything to make our stay perfect. We enjoyed so much the place with the lovely and peacefull courtyard, the nice swimming pool and the amazing tavern just in front of the house. We took our breakfast and all our dinners there cause the food was very good and traditionnal but also because people running the place are so friendly.Moreover the location of the accomodation is very central: 2 min to get the highway to go everywhere. This is the place to experience the true Cyprus for sure!

Me and my husband stayed there last year in July and we absolutely loved it.
We stayed the first 3 days of our trip in Paphos and we were planning to stay the other 3 days somewhere close to Aya Nappa. We always try to avoid touristy and crowded places and since we had already spent 3 days facing the beach we wanted to try something more typical and special even if it means a bit more to the country side. We had rented a car so we could easily go to the beach and do the sightseeing we planned. Scarinou is a lovely small village with all this traditional houses, taverns, and genuine people. The traditional houses are all remodeled and are beautiful, cosy and very comfortable. The toilet was a bit too small but very clean. They have two swimming pools that we can use and breakfast is served in one of the village's taverns with delicious and fresh traditional food. Maria, the manager, is very sweet and helpful. They have little attentions to details and a personalized service that you don't find in big chains hotels. The beach is only a 10 minutes drive from the villas and we still can see the sea from some of the houses balconies. We loved the experience, we only wished we could stay longer

What a wonderful find, didnt think I would experience the old greek hospitality that I experienced 30years ago. Dont go here if you want 5star accomodation, but if you want clean tidy central reasonably priced accomodation - you have found it. Contact Maria on 357 24322089 or info@agrotourismincyprus.com She will give you details on how to find property. We arrived in Larnaca quite late on a saturday night and got our hire car from Economy car rentals,a good hire company close to the airport. The drive was very pleasant as Cyprus now boasts a motorway running east to west. The village of Skarinou is about half way between Larnaca and Limmasol, just two minutes off the motorway, a perfect place to explore the island. Many thanks to Maria and Hoang who made our stay here very enjoyable. Just a few more points FREE WIFI and an Alphamega supermarket within walking distance twinned with TESCOS of all people (They get in everywhere) and talking of getting in theres a McDonalds in the supermarket. Why go to Cyprus to eat a big Mac? By the time you read this Michael, the owner, would have opened a restaurant just opposite the village houses. If the houses are anything to go by it will be worth a visit! Perhaps if I return nextyear I will be able to eat there.Good luck on your venture Michael. Another short note try and visit the ONLY local shop/pub (I use the word pub loosely) and have a coffee or a Keo to put money in the local shop. AND you might, like us, be given a FREE couple of oranges, just for visiting. (Ask the very elderly lady owner about the mad 70 year old englishman who stood on his head on the tiled floor!)

I really love this place in the small village of Skarinou. It's quite and perfect for a group with singles or couples, who can stay in their own traditional appartment, but also sit together on the pools or on the small, romantic "Plazas" betweet in the houses. The equipment is definitly not luxurios, no room is similar to the others, it takes a little bit, before warm water come out of the shower, but if you don't need and expect a **** hotel, you can have a great time. A small supermarket is nearby, also a very big one 1 km away (including a McDonald's restaurant ;-) ) The people are very friendly.

The Traditional Village Houses are beautiful and have an excellent location for exploring Cyprus. The hosts a very helpful and do their best to make your stay pleasant. The houses are well maintained and we enjoyed our stay very much. I'm sure that we will come back.

Skarinou has and excellent location if you want to explore Cyprus by car. It is situated 5 mins from the highway in the hills (but not so high that it got cold in January). Larnaca, Nicosia and Limassol are all within reach for day trips. It's an easy drive from the airport if you are unfamiliar with driving on the left. For walkers: there are some good walking possibilities within easy reach for day trips. Guide books for walking are not available in Cyprus, so get what you need before leaving for your holiday. Otherwise the available WIFI is stable and fast - but you can't bring it on your walking trip :-) For runners: there is a good country road if you prefer a run that is not too steep or crowded with cars. Follow the signs towards "Trikkis Farm" and you have a good 3 km before it gets steeper.

We visited in January and Skarinou was very quiet. It is very small and there is not much to see or do. There is a large public parking lot about a minutes walk from the Traditional Village Houses if you have a rental car. The only restaurant in the village closed while we were visiting. Too bad, because the guy running the place is an excellent cook and the prices were very reasonable. However, Dimitrios, who owns the Village Houses, is setting up a new restaurant next to the houses. Until it finishes self catering or taking the car to a nearby village is the only option. A large supermarket, Alfa Mega, next to the highway is reached by foot in 10 mins or by car. It has a good selection for self catering. Our room had a stove with two hot plates, a mini oven, a toaster and a very effective electric water boiler.

We stayed in the family room. It is beautifully decorated and very charming with a living room area and a fireplace. A double door leads out to a wonderful patio with chairs and a table. Great for enjoying the breakfast even in January.

The owners are very nice and helpful. Our car battery died one morning, and they quickly called a guy from the village who had starter cables and got the car up and running. It saved the day!
