“Sublime hillside beauty spot -luxurious villa”
Reviewed 7 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We have just returned from a blissful week staying at Elia House. Where to begin?

Before we even arrived we were amazed by the wealth of information that Giselle sent to us. Detailed lists of all the local restaurants, directions on how to get there and even menus to browse. There was information on local walks, attractions, beaches, bakeries, supermarkets - whatever you might possibly need was thought of. She even sent a "where to find things in the villa" sheet which was so helpful when we were looking for hair dryers, cooler boxes etc.

The villa is set in magnificent surroundings with stunning uninterrupted views of the mountains. The pool and gardens are beautifully kept and offer complete solitude and silence. On the grounds are Jasmine, Hibiscus, numerous flowering shrubs, Oranges, fig, olive lemon trees, amongst others. The owners should be congratulated on how beautifully landscaped and maintained the gardens are.

When you come into the villa, you immediately feel you have come home. Whatever you have in your own home is there, and more. From a kitchen with every gadget and facility you need, to kids toys, games, books, inflatable lilos for the pool. On the poolside terrace, there are several wooden dining table and chairs, 6 sun-loungers, several parasols, full size gas barbecue centers, brick barbecue, covered swing hammock with seating, and of course a gorgeous swimming pool, with its cascading stone waterfall. On a side terrace there is a full-size ping pong table, and an enclosed trampoline, which is great fun for the kids and any energetic adults. The pool was just the right temperature for us, refreshing in the heat, but warm enough that you could spend hours in it, immersing yourself not only in the water, but also in the absolutely sublime views of the surrounding mountains, from the comfort of your lilo. The pool was cleaned twice during the week we were there by a charming man who was also a wealth of local information.
Given the isolation of the spot and the complete tranquility, the only sounds you hear are the trickle of the waterfall into the pool, birdsong, and the crickets.

If you do want to find a bit more life, the village centre is about 10 minutes walk away, and Limassol about a 20 minute drive. Most of the livelier towns in Cyprus, Pathos, Nicosia and Larnaka are 40 minutes to an hours drive, and the drive itself is a pleasure to do –always with clear roads and great scenery on the way.

We can’t think of one thing to fault and cannot recommend this wonderful oasis of calm highly enough.

“Ping-pong heaven for the boys, relaxing paradise for the girls!”
Reviewed 25 September 2011 for a stay in September 2011

It was 7 of us in our mid 20s early 30s (we actually went there for a 30th birthday celebration) - 2 of us are in hospitality and we could not find anything to fault. If you look for a home away from home, this was just perfect. Having 3 couples in the group, the space was more than sufficient to enjoy everyone and still have some quiet time. The kitchen for me was heaven. It had everything we needed - I even made French crepes one night! We did request some help at the beginning of the stay and our issue was resolved within a matter of hours even though the owners are not around the corner. Having family in Ypsonas in the past, we will definitely recommend Finikaria and Elia House for any future stays!
