About this location
The Larnaka District
The Larnaca area has a long and varied coastline spanning central southern Cyprus, from the beautiful turquoise water and white sand of the east, to the stunning black sand beaches backed by white chalk cliffs in the west.
Inland there are many charming, traditional villages in the foothills of the Troodos mountains, including the picturesque village of Lefkara renown for its' fine handicrafts including filigree silverware and lace.
There are several archaeological sites to explore, many churches some with ancient frescoes or mosaics, and the 4th century Stavrouni Monastery stunningly perched on the edge of a rocky peak.
The region enjoys a Mediterranean climate with hot summers and virtually no rainfall between mid May and mid October - excellent for swimming, sunbathing and a whole range of water sports from sailing to scuba diving. The remainder of the year is mild with many sunny days but an increased likelihood of some rain days - great for walking, cycling and exploring the island as a whole. In spring there are carpets of red anemones and other wild flowers covering the landscape.
The sea is warm from April until November, and is still warm enough for a quick dip during the winter months.
Gemstone Village is situated on the edge of the traditional village of Choirokoitia (also spelt Khirokitia), about 10 minutes from the local Governors beach and its' watersports and tavernas.
Its' stone built houses and small winding streets stand on a ridge with views across the hills and down to the sea. You can follow the nature trail from the village to the UNESCO World Heritage archaeological site of the same name which contains some of the earliest traces of human settlement on Cyprus.
Although enjoying a rural location Gemstone Village is ideally located for exploring the island, being mid way between Larnaca and Limassol (about 25 minutes) and the capital of Nicosia (40 minutes). There is also easy access to the beautiful Troodos Mountains which are popular for their walking and cycling trails and in winter it is possible to ski on Mount Olympus (1952m). The mountains also offer a cooler alternative for a day out during the heat of summer.
Larnaca has a lovely palm tree lined esplanade, a marina, an atmospheric old "Turkish quarter" and several attractive Churches and Mosques. It is also a popular centre for scuba diving especially the dive on the wreck of the Zenobia an enormous car ferry which sank in 1980 just outside the port.
Limassol is the largest seaside resort on the island and offers a wide range of activities including winery tours, various museums, a medieval castle as well as many restaurants, cafes and bars. Nearby you will find Fasouri Watermania, one of the top water parks in Cyprus.
The island capital of Nicosia is now the only divided city in the world. It has an attractive medieval quarter at its core, a good range of shops including some trendy boutiques as well as some excellent restaurants. It is also home to the Cyprus Museum which houses one of the best archaeological collections in the Mediterranean. It is possible to cross to Turkish occupied North Nicosia on foot and to explore the Turkish part of the City.
For children as well beaches and water parks, there is a Camel Park which contains various attractions and where you can take a ride on a Camel (an interesting experience!), a Donkey Sanctuary and some good cycling trails.
There are several golf courses on Cyprus the nearest of which is the championship course at Aphrodite Hills set in a stunning location in the hills overlooking the sea.
The family run Rainbow Taverna is right next to Gemstone village and serves excellent, reasonably priced meals in a child friendly environment. There are numerous other local restaurants as well as fish tavernas at nearby Zigi.

"Very well appointed accommodation in excellent location between Larnaca and Limassol."
Four of us went to Jasmine House in the first week of May and enjoyed beautiful weather (mid/high twenties). The bungalow is very comfortable and located next to the swimming pool with a brilliant, huge roof terrace where many a barbecue was lit and glass of wine drunk. We bought fresh fish really cheaply from Zigi which is a lovely fishing village. We found food and eating out very reasonable and the locals are genuinely very friendly and pro British. It is a bonus also to be able to drive on the left side of the road. We visited lots of places, including vineyards, monasteries and archaeological sites. In fact it was the men who did most of the visiting, my sister and I soaked up the sun and did a lot of swimming.
We had a great time and are going back for sure!!

"Great bungalow, great location, great times..."
We recently stayed in jasmine house at Gemstone village. The house was ideally located to experience the best of what Cyprus has to offer - easy access to motorways to visit cities and the beautiful coastlines. The house is situated in a quiet area near a beautiful village and offers people the chance to get away from it all.
The house is well furnished, with everything you could need and more, we found the DVD and book collection, including guide books and maps very useful.
We highly recommend this house to those looking to experience the true Cyprus.

We have stayed at this property twice first in june 2010 and again in june 2011 and on both occasions we had a most enjoyable and relaxing holiday.It is situate within easy reach of airport ,beaches ,towns and countryside.Most of southern cyprus is easily accessable for a day trip,while the site itself is ideal for a relaxing day by the pool.There are several restaurants and tavernas within short driving distance and a fish meze at one of the restaurants at nereby zygi is not to be missed.The property has been thoughtfully furnished and equipped and the air con and fans are just what is needed after a day in the sun and for those humid nights.

"Relaxing holiday in excellent surroundings"
Jasmine house is a excellent holiday bungalow. It is immaculately clean and has a extensive range of appliances and utensils for the perfect self catering holiday.
Jasmine house is situated in Gemstone village which is a realatively new development. The village of Choirokoitia is a small quiet village set in picturesque surroundings. Those looking for a peaceful relaxing holiday should consider using Jasmine house. Beaches are within 10 minutes and the area has a good selection of restaurants and taverns.We both enjoyed staying in Jasmine House and I would recommend it highly.

"Beautifully equipped and perfect for a relaxing break"
We have two children aged 7 and 8 and have just spent two weeks at Jasmine House (August 2011). The house is furnished to a high standard and contains pretty much everything you could need. The house has one of the best, if not THE best, positions on the development since you can easily slip over the low wall to the communal swimming pool. This means you can sit on your own terrace while keeping an eye on the children. The pool area is usually pretty quiet (some days we had the pool virtually to ourselves despite it being peak season).
The air conditioning is effective and quiet and there are plenty of chairs, tables and sunbeds to enjoy the weather outside.
The owners provided detailed information of the property and surrounding area and were also helpful recommending a car hire company. You need a car to stay here since Gemstone Village is a little isolated (there is a single Taverna next door), with local shops a short drive away. These include a great bakery just down the road and a large supermarket with attached MacDonalds a little further.
There is no internet connectivity at the house at the moment but it is avaialble at the aforementined MacDonalds cafe.
I would recommend this house for both families and couples/friends looking to explore the island or simply soak up the sun and do as little as possible!
