Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 3
Rest or explore the options are yours. We offer all that is needed for the beach or advice on walking and sightseeing. For example times for journeys in a strange country. Towels, chairs and picnic coolboxes are all available for visitors to take out.
Ah!!!! is the usual reaction of guests on entering the spacious courtyard from the main door off the narrow village street. The courtyard is a haven of colour with its many flowers. Your large airy room offers privacy when desired after a full day of exploring this lovely area.
Pick the grapes or pomegranates in summer - buy locally grown vegetables near the secluded village beach. In the winter we have a warm peaceful area to enjoy the sun.

|Further details outdoors|
Sit outside at night under the stars to read or enjoy a sundowner courtesy of your host, amongst the trees and flowers (plumbago, roses, bougainvillea) or under the grape vine. The central courtyard is very private. On the balcony one can see the sea over the village rooftops.
A welcome pack of local food and wine is provided on arrival. The owners are keen walkers with many 1 or 2 hour walk suggestions in the local area. We also have information about and have visited most archeological sites on the island. John gives talks on geology and can take you to visit old copper mines not on the tourist maps. If it is cards you like, we can introduce you to the local bridge club. Or perhaps you enjoy art? Several of our visitors have left lovely pictures of the picturesque courtyard. This house offers many options.
The garden is sometimes shared with the owners.
The Larnaca region
Larnaca has a new airport (Nov 2009) and lies 35 minutes from our village by either the motorway or the sea routes. The nearby village of Zyggi has many varied restaurants to eat in and relax, or one can visit Tochni, for village tavernas. In Psematismenos we have the Lord Kitcheners restaurant or Kalavassos for the new Library hotel and restaurant both of which offer a special night out in easy reach of Maroni.
Twenty minutes from our village lies the Lace village of Lefkara with its traditional crafts and houses, this can be combined with a trip and lunch in the mountain villages for a day out. Most areas of the island can be visited in a day from Maroni. This year we have a new daily bus service to Larnaca which can enable one to meet local people and avoid parking worries for a novel day out.
Maroni a small agricultural village is possibly the ideal place from which to explore Cyprus. Within 15 minutes drive east, we have a Camel park with restaurant and swimming pool. At 20 minutes Dreamland, a children's activity/ play centre. We love the quiet beach but 15 minutes west we have the famous Governer's beach area with it's many restaurants for lunch or an evening cocktail. There are riding stables at Kalavassos 7 minutes to the north. In Sept/Oct there is a music festival in Limassol and the 1st of October has a village celebration of all crafts in the area. (The location for this is rotated but is not far from Maroni). Chirokitia has the famous Neolithic site, and Lefkara with its lace making and pretty houses is also not far away.
