Zorba's Self Catering Stone Cottage with Pool in quiet Paphos village, Cyprus.

This beautifully renovated 2 bedroom stone cottage (sleeps 3 or 4 in certain circumstances) benefits from its own private pool, is totally detached and has off-road parking. Situated in a very sleepy village, with little traffic, the cottage is cool in summer and cosy out of season. This is a rare opportunity to stay in a traditional stone cottage, rather than the usual concrete and steel apartment. The cottage has very thick walls and the roof has been insulated and re-tiled. With one double and one twin bedroom, both with air con and insect screens, the cottage is ideal for those wishing to enjoy a taste of Cypriot village life. Free Air conditioning in bedrooms @ 25C. Free wiFi.

Leading from both the living room and the kitchen is a spacious veranda with views of rolling countryside, overlooking the pool, furnished with a comfy seating area as well as a table and chairs to enable you to dine al fresco. From the veranda, you can often see "Bonelli's Eagles" soaring over the hills and if you sit quietly in the evening, you may see small bats hunting insects or flying home to roost.

Within a short drive is the golf course at Tsada, and extensive areas for walking, cycling or 4 x 4 off-roading. The cottage is centrally located for the tourist areas and beaches of Paphos, Polis and Coral Bay, each only about 20 minutes' scenic drive away. 

All guests are met by the owners on arrival and introduced to Zorba's cottage. Starter supplies of tea, coffee, milk, bread, cereal and many other basic items are provided. The owners live 3km away, service the cottage themselves and are on hand to help when needed.

The cottage is strictly non-smoking and not suitable for the mobility impaired, nor for children under 12 years of age. Car hire is essential.
