This cottage is simply perfect in every way. Frances and her lovely husband have worked hard to create and maintain this amazing little piece of Heaven for weary souls to be restored.
The cottage is totally equipped with everything you could ever need to make your stay memorable. From binoculars to a lemon squeezer, everything has been thought of. The cottage has a sort of magic about it. It slows you down, stripps you back so you merely exist to relax and unwind, one muscle at a time. What a place, what a couple. Brilliant. Thank you both from the bottom of our souls.
A delightful villa set amongst bougainvillaea and and jasmine in a quiet hamlet set high in the hills above Polis with fantastic views from the pool and patio area that have privacy. The owner provides the little things one does not expect....robes, slippers,bathroom toiletries and a 'get you started' food pack. The supermarket, a short drive away has a wide range of supplies at a reasonable price and we filled up there finding all we required.
We were collected from the airport by the owner and dropped back with the full use of a 4 wheel drive Rav 4 as part of the package. There are plenty of towels with good quality bedlinen also provided. You will find all you need here from a washing machine to the hairdryer....so pack light! Internet proved to be excellent and there is a phone....mobile signal was also excellent. There are plenty of areas to sit ...we chose the pool area in the morning most days and outside the kitchen under the vine trellis for evening meals. We ate both at home (a BBQ is provided) and at local Taverna's...although the quality here varied from poor to excellent. The house cat is friendly but does not trouble at all....he stayed outside all the time we were there ....all we did was to ensure he was fed 'on demand' ! The bedrooms are cool, dark when required and comfortable. The bathroom is adequate and proved not to be a problem with four of us sharing with plenty of hot water. The upside here ?......the calm and peace enabling relaxation to be instant......with the the larger towns close by if needed....the downside? ...having to leave so soon....this we found to be the only 'downside'! If you want this type of break... come here and enjoy. We have no hesitation in recommending, other than the fear it will become too popular !!!......A big thank you to Frances.

Kritou Terra is a truly traditional Cypriot Home ,we are so happy we found this idyllic villa. For anyone who wants complete peace and privacy - this is the place.
We stayed for one week and for the first time ever, my husband, did not want to come home.
The pool was amazing, and the extra little touches of dressing gowns, slippers and lovely white towels made for a wonderful stay.
We would highly recommend this villa to anyone!
