TOCHNI & KALAVASOS
Nothing can quite compare with a holiday in the wholesome, serene environment of a village tucked into the hills of Cyprus.
CYPRUS VILLAGES offers you a unique opportunity to live in a traditional stone-built village home… stroll along the narrow cobbled paths to the village square… have a coffee in the local café… and settle into an easygoing Mediterranean lifestyle that respects and nurtures timeless traditions. Before you know it, you will be a member of the local community and enjoy the generous Cypriot hospitality that can be summed up in a single word, “kopiaste” – come in and join us!
CYPRUS VILLAGES was established in 1987 in an effort to revive rural communities and preserve the traditional houses of bygone days.
With loving care, several abandoned and ruined family houses were thoroughly renovated to provide comfort without sacrificing their original, rustic character.
CYPRUS VILLAGES offers you a choice of studios, one- and two-bedroom standard or premium apartments with self-catering facilities in a well-equipped kitchenette, central heating/air-conditioning and access to a shared swimming pool. Notice the thick walls, small windows, stone or wooden staircases so typical of our island’s architecture of yesteryear.
In every village a swimming pool with sun beds is always within easy reach and reserved for our guests.
Our accommodations at Tochni village are booked only on a breakfast or half-board basis where our guests enjoy the authentic traditional Cypriot cuisine of our Tochni Tavern. Our accommodations at Kalavasos village are booked on a self-catering basis.
Tochni, a small and picturesque village, lies between Larnaca and Limassol. Set on the slopes of two hills, its stone-built houses line the narrow streets that wind their way to the beautiful church of Saints Konstantinos and Eleni. The apartments are reached via narrow steep footpaths. Tochni is centrally located and close to the sea (7km), an ideal spot for those who are planning a holiday that combines relaxation on the beach with day tours to explore the whole island. The CYPRUS VILLAGES reception and our Tochni Tavern by the pool offer a panoramic view of the whole village and serene countryside.
Kalavasos is one of Tochni’s neighboring villages, only 3 km away. The attractive village square is a place where residents and visitors meet and mix for a friendly chat, or a meal in one of the traditional taverns. During the day a swimming pool awaits our guests, and in the evenings the stone-paved roads and mild temperatures will tempt you to stroll under the stars. The apartments are easily accessible, set just behind the village square. Our accommodations at Kalavasos are available only on a self-catering basis. Tochni Tavern welcomes all guests for breakfast or dinner.
