    Parfaite

    CONS Cons: Tiens de spécial. Je n'avais volontairement pas loué de voiture mais ce choix peut être un problème pour certaines personnes. Pas pour moi.

    PROS Pros: Cécilia est attentive, précise et à l'écoute des besoins de chacun. Nous avons pu partager nos expériences. Très enrichissante. Le lieu est parfaitement calme, aucun bruit. Les personnes du village sont accueillantes et chaleureuses. Parfait pour se ressourcer.

    Heerlijk ontspannen yoga week!

    CONS Cons: Ook als je naar het strand gaat heb je een auto nodig. Let op dat het links rijden is in Cyprus! Gelukkig over algemeen rustig op de weg (ook in hoogseizoen) en goede kwaliteit wegen. Prima te doen. Verder is er geen volledig yoga/wellness programma bepaald, je kan dit echter wel zelf samenstellen. Veel katten die rondlopen overal.

    PROS Pros: Mooi dorp, geen massa tourisme plek. Lekker eten en aardige bediening. Het is een 7 daagse week maar meer of minder dagen wordt ook niet moeilijk over gedaan. Yoga lessen van hoge kwaliteit, van tevoren te boeken voor hele week of ter plekke per les. Cecilia (de yoga lerares) is een erg prettig, kundig en down to earth persoon! Les in Engels, Duits of andere talen mogelijk. We hadden een auto geboekt voor uitstapjes en dat is ook wel essentieel. Alleen dorpje met kleine supermarkt en wellness op loopafstand.

    Review by Modupe Ola Fagbohun from United Kingdom

    Perfect Digital Detox Getaway

    CONS Cons: You do ned a car here. Fortunately I was happy to stay in the village, but if for more than one week it would have got boring.

    PROS Pros: The accommodation was decorated in keeping with the surroundings, loved the roof beams. Also the main door was a short walk to three sun beds and the pool. And less than 5 minutes to the taverna. The yoga was everything I was looking for, and it helped I was the only one so had one to one attention. Cecelia, came to meet me a day before to find out what I wanted from each class. She also made sure that I didn't push myself but made sure I held the postures correctly, and helped me to really relax. I also loved the isolated nature of the village, it made me slow down and appreciate my surroundings. The food was fresh and large - yummy!

Testimonials

  • Review by a traveler from United Kingdom

    "We have just returned from a week’s holiday here and it was fantastic. The village is extremely picturesque – think picture postcard pretty, with narrow winding streets and lots of vibrant flowers. The apartments are charming, with whitewashed walls and local bits and pieces dotted around. They are spacious and equipped with everything you need. "

  • Review by Alec L. from Netherlands

    "We have just returned from a great 12 days in Cyprus. Our base location at Cyprus villages, Tochni was perfect. Tochni, itself is a quiet rural village half way between Larnaca and Limisos and 5 mins from the main A1 motorway. It's very quiet and peaceful."

  • Review by Barbara from United Kingdom

    "Cyprus Villages is a traditional accommodation with excellent view. Their bedroom was lovely with a spacious balcony surrounded by bougainvillea. The kitchen area was tiny with limited equipment. However, as we were not self-catering this did not affect us. The views across the village and surrounding countryside were fantastic. The swimming pool was on the small side but it was still great for a cool down. We had our evening meal in the taverna and the food was excellent and the service was friendly."

    "I had a great experience in this traditional village in Cyprus. The food was amazing especially the 'meze', the rooms were clean and the owner was one hell of a guy! He really took care of us, suggested us the places where we should visit, and many more. If you want to relax and eat well in a great and family-like ambience, I highly recommend Cyprus villages."
