We stayed 5 nights in Christina's lovely apartment, set up in the hills of the beautiful village of Pissouri. The apartment has a lovely little courtyard with beautiful views across the valley to the sea, we enjoyed having breakfast here in the mornings under the shade of the parasol. The apartment has everything you need to have an enjoyable stay. We had a problem with hot water but thankfully it was very hot so cool showers were very welcome.
The apartment had just been updated with wifi which is a huge bonus to be able to contact home and keep up to date. Christina is a fabulous host, she is readily available by email to answer any questions and supplies a lovely welcome pack for your arrival.
There are a lot of dogs on the estate which is not a massive problem but some evenings they get a bit noisy all barking at the same time. The communal pool is lovely and we had it mostly to ourselves. There are very nice sun loungers and parasols for your use around the pool. We found parking on the road was the best option as the parking spaces have very high kerbs which scrape the bottom of the hire car.
We would definitely return to Christina's apartment for future holidays.
From first contact Christina was friendly and informative. The information forwarded is comprehensive, and totally reasonable. The description is accurate and the apartment well appointed, feeling homely as soon as you enter. There is everything you need there along with a small get you started welcome pack which is ideal if you are in on a late flight as we were! The area is quiet and a number of the apartments in the area are owner occupied. They are friendly and very helpful in getting a 'feel' for the area. The patio is private and has great views over the bay. The shared swimming pool is a 30 second walk from the apartment and very well maintained. There is an allocated parking space and as the apartment is in a cul-de-sac the road is safe for parking. If you must keep contact with the world WiFi is available (€15 per week) via a company in the village and is good way to get introduced to what is available there. In any event if you must use your phone the local networks are available and with good reception. The area round the apartment is well kept and the whole experience can only be described as 'homely'. The village is blessed with a number of bars and restaurants and the people are very friendly and helpful. The apartment is ideally placed as a touring center for the beaches and mountains or the towns. Pissouri Bay is the closest beach, about 5-10 minutes. Access from Paphos or Larnaka airports is very easy via main roads or scenic (URL HIDDEN) up to you. If you want roaring nightlife, clubs, and partying until all hours there are places on Cyprus that you can go...but not here! This is ideal for a restful quiet relaxing break with everything you need in the apartment and great local amenities. For a couple who wanted a relaxing break this apartment was easy to book, no surprises and very comfortable. We will certainly be going back there in the not too distant future.
