Entire home
You’ll have the cottage to yourself.
A lovely 100+-year-old, traditionally restored, stone-built house, with a private courtyard located in the peaceful village of Choulou, a 20-minute drive from Paphos.

Ideal for a relaxing family holiday whilst exploring rural Cyprus.

The space
A lovely stone cottage built in 1914.

The cottage has been recently renovated. It consists of the main house, called 'palati' (palace), a big kitchen with all the mod cons (fridge/freezer, electric hob, gas oven, washing machine, kettle, frape mixer), a bathroom/wetroom and a separate private bedroom located on the first floor.

The village of Choulou is a 20 minute drive from Paphos. Up to the 1950s Choulou was the capital village of the surrounding villages with a population of around 1000. Today, there are about 70 permanent residents and much of the village is abandoned.

Choulou is a scenic, beautiful and quiet village. It is surrounded by a wonderful natural environment and it is located next the river of Ezousa, one of the biggest in Cyprus, and next to the Ammati forest.

The altitude of Choulou is 350 meters above sea level. Choulou also has five churches. Panagia Pantanassa (the village's main church), Holly Cross chapel, St Kononas chapel, the Venetian church, St Theodoros and the Byzantine church dedicated to St George.

The village has a coffeeshop with a mini market. There is a tavern in the close-by village of Letymbou, just 6km away and a supermarket in Polemi village (around 8km away).

Guest access
Main house, upstairs room, kitchen, bathroom/wetroom,
private courtyard and roof.

Other things to note
There is a set of USB ports available in the upstairs room and one next to the desk downstairs, where you can directly plug your usb cables in and charge up!

High-speed Wifi available throughout the property.

There is an air-condition unit available on the bedroom on the first floor.

We have an electric heater available for Winter.

Location

Choulou, Paphos, Cyprus

Located in a private close along with another cottage, the neighborhood tends to be very quiet and peaceful. In the Summer you can sometimes catch a peak of the neighbors making trahana on the roof of their house and you can order local dairy products, such as halloumi and anari from the lady living across the main courtyard entrance.

I am a software developer, originally from Cyprus, but living in Glasgow. With the help of my mum, Chloe, I rent out my great grandmother's old stone built house in a small village in Paphos, Choulou. Me and my husband love spending time at the house ourselves and when in Cyprus we always stay there.
