The SpaceA very special house and garden that reflect the spirit of Cyprus. All rooms are very comfortably furnished with linen supplied to all beds. The house has been well renovated with many of the original features retained. The ceilings are high and the floors are tiles in marble, stone and ceramic. Rugs are supplied during the cooler months. All rooms have oiled filled radiators and mosquito deterrents. The village of Arsos was named after the ancient Greek word meaning 'place of many trees' - so called because of the village being situated by a richly vegetated valley with a stream running its course down from the Troodos Mountains to meet with the sea at Paphos. Arsos is an especially friendly and hospitable village set in the un-spoilt, rural landscape of Southern Cyprus, and is ideally situated to access all areas on the island - there and back in a day. The great bonus of a stay here is the house stays cool in the hot summer months, and warm in the cooler ones. The beautiful, high walled terraced garden offers total privacy from the rest of world; a space to enjoy el-fresco meals and relax in the sun or dappled shade of the citrus grove. The garden is home to three pitharias - huge teracotta vessels formerly used to ferment wine and hand made by the original owner of the house over 100 years ago. Guest AccessThis is a traditional house built into the side of the Laona Hills and is arranged over two floors. The front door is on the first floor, accessed from Ayios Philipos Street. The garden and ground level is accessed via an 'outdoor' flight of stairs situated through a door at the far end of the entrance hall. The first floor has the original white marble tiled floor; wood paneled ceilings and fabulous views to the rear overlooking the valley beyond. On either side of the wide entrance hall are two bedrooms, both with large windows to the front and rear: a large master bedroom with king-size bed; a large twin bedroom with single beds. On the ground level is a spacious, airy (always cool in hot months and warm in the winter), traditionally furnished salon/sitting room with double doors leading onto the terraced garden and small citrus grove of six mature trees (orange, manderine and clementine). The salon has a cedar beamed ceiling and a traditional sand stone floor, with an additional single wrought iron bed and double sofa bed for additional guests. An open arch leads to a well-equipped, spacious kitchen-diner with ceramic tiled floor. The shower/utility room with seperate WC has been refurbished from the original old kitchen and is situated in a detached building in the garden - only a few paces from the house. (NB - there is no bathroom or WC inside the house). Garden furniture inc. a large parasol is supplied. Interaction with GuestsYou will have the entire house and garden to yourselves. Chandra is a local and lovely lady who is Caretaker of the house and lives close-by. She will meet u on your arrival in the village (details given on confirmed bookings), accompany you to the house and help you settle in. She will (on request) make delicious Cypriot and Sri-Lankan meals for you at a very reasonable price.... and so u can afford to be lazy! The local inhabitants enjoy meeting visitors and are genuinely good natured, kind and hospitable. The NeighborhoodThe Arsos village house is ideal for family holidays, retreats, and couples. Ideal for writers, painters, walkers, archeologists, beach lovers and adventurers. All locations on the island inc. the larger towns of Limassol, Larnaca and Paphos and the capital city of Lefkosia - can be reached there and back in a single day. There is a plethora of ancient sites and plenty of inland and coastal activities to keep everybody happy. Perhaps what is most conducive about the house is the garden and the gentle and interesting character and atmosphere of the house and village itself. You will never run out of nearby villages to visit, all with their own tavernas and characters sitting outside cafes, happy to greet and spend time with you over a cup of Greek coffee, a beer or a glass of wine or local Zivania. The nearest beach at Avdimou is outstanding with a superb, long, clean, sandy coastline and two excellent tavernas right on the edge of the beach! lt just doesn't get much better than this.... Getting AroundDaily transport from Arsos is the local school bus that can drop u off en-route anywhere between the village and Limassol town. You will need to ask in the Arsos taverna regarding the leaving and returning to the village timetable. HIRED CAR: lt is advisable to pre-book online from your homeland. Cars, 4x4's and jeeps can be collect and dropped off at the airport of your choice (Limassol or Paphos). 'Service Taxis' can take u from town to town. All towns have buses, however none that drive into the Laona Hills or into the Troodos Mts. Boats can be hired, with or without a crew, also motor bikes, scooters and bicycles.

    The SpaceThe village of Arsos is one of the biggest wine producing villages in Cyprus. It lies 40 kilometres from Limassol and 45 kilometres from Paphos It is built on the slopes of Laona mountain, 1092 metres above sea level, with an open horizon on the Valley of the Diarizos River, as far as the sea of Paphos. Thanks to this geographical position, it enjoys a wonderful cool and dry climate in summer and attracts therefore hundreds of holidaymakers. There are two versions about its name. One says that it comes from the Holy Alsos (grove) of the goddess Aphrodite, where the village is built, and the other tells us that it was one of the 4 towns founded by Ptolemy Philadelphos in the honour of Arsinoe. Since the most ancient times, it has developed into a big rich wine-producing village. All the inhabitants of the village make their own wine, especially red wine, and keep it in big earthenware jars. They grow mainly dark grapes, xynisteri, as well as new varieties suitable for the production of wine. The jars and the winepress for the production of the famous Arsos wine, as well as the alembics for the production of zivania can be found in most houses. From spring to autumn, the emerald colour of the vineyards dominates all around the village. The houses in the village are close to each other. It is a classical example of a densely constructed settlement. The narrow streets, the lengthy houses (makrynaria), the spacious two-roomed houses (dichora) and the two-storied houses (anoyia), all built with impeccably hewn stones give, in combination with the tiled roofs, give a special charm to the architecture of the village. The numerous neo-classical buildings are also characteristic. The hospitality of the inhabitants of the village, the cleanness of the houses and the streets, the wonderful picturesque yards and all the varieties of flowers and greenery are characteristic. The housewives of the village are famous for their dexterity in preparing the different dishes such as ''palouzes", ''epsima'', ''biscuits with episma'', ''paste'', ''shoudzioukos'', ''kiofterka'', ''arkatena'', ''kattimerka'', '' glyko '' and many others. The village experienced an important development from 1920 to 1960. The population of the village amounted to 2.000 inhabitants. The unprofitable viticulture, the bad road network in those days and the search for a better fortune in the cities led the village to decay and abandonment. Nowadays, only around 300 people have remained in the village; they keep and transmit a tradition rich in manners and customs. The Arsos Development Association, which was founded 17 years ago, aims at the maintenance of the manners and customs of the village, and the preservation of its architectural character together with modern development, in order to transform it into a viable place for the young. The main activities of the Association are tree-planting every January, Eastern festivities, the Cyprus night in June, the August festival, the palouze feast etc. The church of the village is dedicated to Apostle Philip, the patron saint of the Community. The magnificent Byzantine church stands in the middle of the village; it dates back to the 12th century and is unique in its kind and dimensions. It has been declared an ancient monument by the Department of Antiquities and has recently been restored. Inside the church, you can see its ancient woodcut iconostasis dating from the 18th century with the old icons. The big icon of Apostle Philip, as well as a part of the Apostle's relics (13th century) are unique. The chapel of Ayia Mariamni, Apostle Philip's sister, which is used as a guardroom for icons, is embodied in the main church. Old icons dating form the 15th century to the second half of the 19th century are kept there. It also contains (URL HIDDEN) vestments of the priest and the deacon from last century, votive offerings to Apostle Philip, a crown from the 15th century, which used to be placed on Apostle Philip's head, metalwork items, holy evangels, holy vessels, (URL HIDDEN) vestments, an icon of the Christ embroidered with gold, a bell made in Venice in 1858 and a cherubim from the 19th century. In the village, there is also a second small medieval church, dedicated to Panayia Chryseleousa of the Catholics. In the ancient times it was a Latin Monastery. The Folk Art Museum of the village, one of the best in its kind, is remarkable. It is a building from the 19th century and an ancient monument, which houses tools, furniture, utensils from older times related to viticulture and the other occupations of the inhabitants. The ''Six Fountains'' nature trail along the river joins the six medieval fountains of the village. There is a rich fauna and flora. The fountains are linked to the village by cobbled pathways. Rural tourism accommodations function in the village. They are old houses which have been renovated and welcome local and foreign visitors.
