      *PRICES REDUCED FOR 1ST YEAR 2016* This is the top floor (Pano) of The Old Olive Mill Dhoros only. As only one floor will be rented out at a time; the downstairs accommodation will be locked off, but all outside areas will available to guests. See the full listing on (6910250). This is to enable smaller groups the opportunity of staying at The Old Olive Mill Dhoros. ‘The Old Olive Mill ' is an ancient traditional stone Cypriot village house that was the dowry house of the late priest's wife that has been lovingly restored over the past few years. A part of the house used to be the village's olive mill; hence the name. The house sits in a secluded spot at the end of the road in the quiet farming village of Dhoros in the foothills of the Troodos Mountain. Dhoros is situated halfway between Cyprus' highest mountain and the coastal town of Limassol: making it an ideal location for all types of holidays; including snow in the higher mountains in winter. As Cypriot summer living tends to be mainly ‘Al Fresco’ night and day, there is plenty of private and enclosed outside space available at The Old Olive Mill to ensure you can indulge. Entering through large arched wooden double gates you immediately find yourself within a walled ground floor patio, whilst a second patio partially covered by a large Verigro grapevine provides natural shade throughout the day. The adjoining stoa gives an alternative shady spot to relax in during the day. Stone steps lead from the walled patio to the low walled and railed upper balcony; with spectacular views of the Troodos Mountains & the Kouris valley. Alternatively at night you can sit beneath a beautiful starry canopy and gaze on the twinkling lights across the valley. The outside spaces are further enhanced by small stone wall raised flower beds that contain Mediterranean shrubs and flowers such as bougainvillea, plumbago and jasmine Whilst a huge terracotta pithari sits to one side of the patio overflowing with flowering succulents. Other indigenous plants in various smaller pots and sinks give a perfect Mediterranean feel to the whole property both Pano and Kato. To make the most of these outside spaces you will find a table & benches beneath the grapevine & a small bistro table on the balcony. Further outdoor furniture can be found either inside or stored in the stoa cupboard. The Olive Mill’s balcony gives practically 360º of stunning views of the surrounding mountains, whilst at the same time looking down over the Kouris valley and other small Cypriot villages, including Monagri with its beautiful Monastery of Archangelos Michail. Almond and olive trees abound, whilst bougainvillea adds glorious colour at all times of year. Fields of yellow Easter daisies in the early spring are spectacular, whilst oleanders, geraniums, snapdragons and succulents grow wherever they can take hold. Along with the fabulous mountain views, the balcony is also the ideal place to find a warm breeze at different times of the day and evening. With all of this natural healthy outdoor living its good to know that The Old Olive Mill also provides cool fresh mountain spring water on tap; as all of our fresh water is supplied by The Troodos Mountains. Internally The Pano Apartment of The Old Olive Mill has one main living area which is roomy, spacious and airy, due to its numerous windows and shutters, not forgetting the solid stone walls. It remains comfortably cool in the summer and can be easily warmed in winter. As is typical of village living; the living room also act as the bedroom. With minimal light & noise pollution, you have no excuse not to: 'Enjoy, Relax, Unwind’ For a better insight into our home, visit the Old Olive Mill Dhoros . com Dhoros is one of the original 14 local villages that made up the geographic appellation for Koumandaria, the oldest known named wine still in production. Cut off from the outside world and set within a Nature Reserve, beautiful long walks can be taken in all directions.

      The SpacePlease note that this listing is for the Kato downstairs apartment only, with the addition of the upstairs bathroom, however we only rent one apartment or the whole house at any given time, so all of outside space will be available. ‘The Old Olive Mill Dhoros' is a traditional stone Cypriot village house & olive mill that has been lovingly restored over the past few years. It sits in a secluded spot in the quiet farming village of Dhoros in the foothills of the Troodos Mountain. The Kato Apartment can accommodate up to 5 adults or children. There is plenty of space both inside and out for everyone whether they want to relax, eat or sleep. As Cypriot summer living tends to be outside; outside space & patio furniture is a must and The Olive Mill has both. A walled ground floor patio partially covered by a large Verigro grapevine opens up behind the arched wooden entrance gates, To your left you will find a BBQ area with a flight of stone steps beyond leading to the upper balcony. A small covered stoa beneath the steps lead to the Kato’s internal spaces The patio is enhanced with raised stone beds filled with bougainvillea, plumbago, jasmine & geraniums. Whilst a huge terracotta Pithari & various smaller pots and sinks containing flowering plants give it the perfect Mediterranean feel. Above the balcony presents spectacular views of the Troodos Mountains & the Kouris valley. Here you can take in practically 360 degrees of stunning views of the surrounding mountains, whilst at the same time looking down over the Kouris valley and other small Cypriot villages, including Monagri with its beautiful monastery of Archangelos Michail. Almond and olive trees abound, whilst bougainvillea adds glorious colour at all times of year. Fields of yellow Easter daisies in the early spring are spectacular, whilst oleanders, geraniums, snapdragons and succulents grow wherever they can take hold. The balcony boasts traditional small stone walls and sturdy wood and iron railings to enhance both privacy & safety (It is however not advisable to allow young children or adults unsteady on their feet to go too near these walls unless under careful supervision as the balcony is extremely high) There is also plenty of internal space in Kato Apartment of The Olive Mill; The main Kato living area on the ground floor has two entrances, ensuring plenty of cooler fresh air in the hot summer months. The main front door opens beneath the covered Stoa and leads into a spacious studio room which contains a log burning stove (for the winter months) surrounded by sofas, easy chairs & coffee tables. A double bed sits in the opposite corner, whilst an extendable full sized dining table is placed beneath a traditional ceiling light and in front of the second entrance to the room; double sliding glass patio doors. The table has plenty of dining chairs to seat up to 5 people. The room has recently been refurnished with two beautiful wooden storage units to give the space an even greater feeling of warmth & cosiness. A variety of wall & table lights enhance this area. From the Kato studio an open narrow archway leads into a full sized, fitted & fully equipped kitchen, with an extractor fan over the main cooking hob, and a dishwasher to ensure this really is a holiday when you choose to eat at home. From the kitchen an old back door now leads into the utility room which houses a spiral staircase, a fridge, some of the outside furniture, as well as a growing library of books; predominantly in English, but we are working on that one. (Please feel free to read and if necessary take a book home with you but please replace it with at least one of your own) The spiral steps lead up to the Pano floor where you will find a full size bathroom; walk through the kitchenette (We would kindly ask guests to ignore the small kitchenette as this belongs to the Pano Apartment or The Olive Mill taken as a whole) and its the door on the left. Back downstairs beneath the covered stoa as well as the main door to the internal Kato living areas, you will also find two more doors and an end cupboard. One leads to the kato bedroom with 2 bunk beds & 1 single bed, with plenty of storage room for clothes etc. whilst the other opens to the w.c./shower-room. The wooden end cupboard houses the washing machine and extra patio furniture. There are no shared areas, however, when the owners are not in residence, guests are welcome to make use of the owners' balcony attached to the Pano balcony as well as the private internal Juliet Courtyard accessed from the Pano kitchenette. If you find this all a bit too complicated to take in take a look at our site at The Old Olive Mill (URL HIDDEN) for plans and more detailed information & photographs. Guest AccessArched wooden gates gives you access from the quiet village road to the property; opening up to a walled partially covered patio. To your left you will find a BBQ area with a flight of stone steps beyond giving access to the upper balcony, A small covered stoa off the ground floor patio and beneath the steps gives access to the Kato’s internal living spaces; Here you will find three doors. The one to your right gives access to the spacious Kato studio, with the kitchen beyond. The middle door gives access to the Kato shower & wc, whilst the door to your left gives access to the Kato bedroom. The built in cupboard on the left gives access to a washing machine & patio furniture. The main Kato studio can also be accessed through double sliding glass patio doors. The fully equipped kitchen is accessed through an open narrow archway from the Kato studio. From the kitchen a door gives access to the utility room which houses a fridge, a library of books, further patio furniture & a spiral staircase, The spiral steps give access to the Pano floor that accesses a full size bathroom; walk through the kitchenette (We would kindly ask guests to ignore the small kitchenette as this belongs to the Pano Apartment or The Olive Mill taken as a whole) and its the door on the left.

If you find this all a bit too complicated to take in take a look at our site at The Old Olive Mill (URL HIDDEN) for plans and more detailed information & photographs. Whilst the owners are in residence their private balcony and Juliet courtyard will be not be available. Interaction with GuestsAs the owners spend most of their time in England there will be little interaction between the owners and the guests during their actual stay. However, our representative in the village speaks excellent Cypriot, Greek, English & German. She will ensure that the Mill is unlocked, (lights turned on if needed), the keys are available, the house is clean with fresh linen and will handle any enquiries or special requests during the guests stay. She will also be available should any problems arise during the guests stay. The owners will answer by phone or email all queries regarding the Mill prior to any bookings. The Old Olive Mill also has two brilliant handymen should the need arise The owners may or may not be present during the guests stay The Neighborhood**See the GUIDEBOOK for detailed Map of of the area** The village is a traditional farming mountain Cypriot village, with many old stone houses and winding alleyways. Rural and peaceful, the village is surrounded by vinyards, fruit trees and wild herbs. Little English is spoken or heard in the village as the majority of the villagers are Cypriot. However, this doesn't mean that the villagers are uncommunicative. As with all traditional Cypriot villages and their inhabitants, welcome or καλωσορισατε (ka lo so ris eta) are the keywords that our villagers use to greet newcomers. A friendly smile and an invite to partake of a cup of Cypriot coffee and some traditional glyko are commonplace with many of the villagers who love the chance to try and chat to visitors. A planned visit to our representative's home in the village will take the guests back in time to witness traditional village ways of life and a chance to purchase some traditional village staples, such as trachanas, soujouko, zivania, Koumandaria, sultanas, etc. Getting AroundDhoros is situated half way between Cyprus' highest mountain and the coastal town of Limassol, making it an ideal location for all types of holidays including snow in the higher mountains in winter. Sadly? (Well maybe not, it's what keeps our village so relaxing!) our Cypriot village is still pretty well cut off from the outside world, although there is now a regular but infrequent bus service to and from Limassol from the main road (A fair walk from our house: see map). A hire car is essential to access the airport, supermarkets, town, villages and mountains. There is an airport bus that runs between the two airports and Limassol, but a taxi or rental car is needed to access the village on a regular basis. As a small traditional village; cars are a fairly new introduction, but parking spaces have been cleared in numerous areas within the village. There are no parking meters or restrictions as such, just make sure other cars can get past your parked vehicle. There is a fairly large open space opposite the Mill. We also have links with a reliable and reasonable car hire firm and can recommend them if needed. For the more adventurous a bike would get you to other local villages and further amenities, but remember this is in the mountains and you would need a good mountain bike to deal with the inclines etc. Having said that bikes are becoming far more popular and can now be rented from within the Island. Other Things to NoteA village shop is open for staples and very basic needs very early in the mornings on weekdays, Fresh linen can be provided weekly, should you require an extra clean or change of linen, this can usually be arranged for an extra fee directly with our representative in the village. All hot water is heated by solar panels. Gaz heaters are available in all main sleeping/living areas and can be refilled if necessary at the local shop or supermarket. (just take the empty bottle with you) The same applies to the Gaz used to power the cooking hob in the Kato kitchen. Logs for the wood burning stove can be purchased form our representative. Water is natural spring water on tap from the mountains! Therefore it does not need to be boiled, nor do you need bottled water, it is perfectly safe to drink. The smaller of the taps by the kitchen sinks are generally used as direct drinking water as they have not been stored in a tank. Remember water can be a scarce commodity in the long dry summer months and although rare we can still have water restrictions put on us by the government to ensure fairness to the whole population Fire Hazards take great care with any form of fire as forest fires are a natural hazard in the extremely dry months and a carelessly discarded cigarette end or a BBQ coal can easily start one. Toilet Paper et al. Please ensure all paper and beauty or sanitary items are placed in the bins provided. Ignoring this request could lead to serious flooding! Free parking space is available opposite. Mobiles / cell phones work fairly well in the village but just in case there is a public phone box in the village. The Kaffeneon is usually open next to the church where you can get ices & drinks There is a children’s playing ground in the same area. Although this is a quiet village, you will sometimes hear distant water pipes watering the vineyards, a distant donkey braying, distant chickens cackling or a cockerel hailing the morning, owls hooting, a dog barking, birds singing, cicadas humming and the general low chatter of Cypriot voices, sometimes a car horn will blare and you will hear a voice over a tannoy, these are the traders who come to serve the villagers with vegetables, shoes or other basic necessities, Occasionally there is a wine festival or a wedding in a surrounding village with music crossing the valleys, whilst on Sundays church bells and chanters can often be heard. Usually not all together but these are the sounds of a small village and life in the mountains that have continued for hundreds of years.

We also have links with a reliable and reasonable car hire firm and can recommend them if needed. For the more adventurous a bike would get you to other local villages and further amenities, but remember this is in the mountains and you would need a good mountain bike to deal with the inclines etc. Having said that bikes are becoming far more popular and can now be rented from within the Island. Other Things to NoteA village shop is open for staples and very basic needs very early in the mornings on weekdays, Fresh linen can be provided weekly, should you require an extra clean or change of linen, this can usually be arranged for an extra fee directly with our representative in the village. All hot water is heated by solar panels. A Gaz heater is available in the main sleeping/living areas and can be refilled if necessary at the local shop or supermarket. (just take the empty bottle with you) Water is natural spring water on tap from the mountains! Therefore it does not need to be boiled, nor do you need bottled water, it is perfectly safe to drink. The smaller of the taps by the kitchen sinks are generally used as direct drinking water as they have not been stored in a tank. Remember water can be a scarce commodity in the long dry summer months and although rare we can still have water restrictions put on us by the government to ensure fairness to the whole population Fire Hazards take great care with any form of fire as forest fires are a natural hazard in the extremely dry months and a carelessly discarded cigarette end or a BBQ coal can easily start one. Toilet Paper et al. Please ensure all paper and beauty or sanitary items are placed in the bins provided. Ignoring this request could lead to serious flooding! Free parking space is available opposite. Mobiles / cell phones work fairly well in the village but just in case there is a public phone box in the village. The Kaffeneon is usually open next to the church where you can get ices & drinks There is a children’s playing ground in the same area. Although this is a quiet village, you will sometimes hear distant water pipes watering the vineyards, a distant donkey braying, distant chickens cackling or a cockerel hailing the morning, owls hooting, a dog barking, birds singing, cicadas humming and the general low chatter of Cypriot voices, sometimes a car horn will blare and you will hear a voice over a tannoy, these are the traders who come to serve the villagers with vegetables, shoes or other basic necessities, Occasionally there is a wine festival or a wedding in a surrounding village with music crossing the valleys, whilst on Sundays church bells and chanters can often be heard. Usually not all together but these are the sounds of a small village and life in the mountains that have continued for hundreds of years.
