Tochni village- Vasilikos house offers you the unique opportunity to live in a traditional stone-built village home… stroll along the narrow cobbled paths to the village square…. have a coffee in the local coffee shop… and settle into an easy-going Mediterranean lifestyle that respects and nurtures timeless traditions. Before you know, you will be a member of the local community, and will enjoy the generous Cypriot hospitality that can be summed up in a single word, "kopiaste"… come and join us!
Established in 1987 by Sofronis Potamitis, in an effort to revive rural communities and preserve the traditional houses of bygone days. With loving care, several abandoned and ruined family houses were thoroughly renovated to provide comfort without sacrificing their original, rustic character.
Vasilikos house is a complex of individual apartments with self-catering facilities in a well-equipped kitchenette, and central heating/air-conditioning and access to shared pool. Notice the thick walls, small windows, stone or wooden staircases so typical of our island’s architecture of yesteryear. On your veranda, in your patio or garden you can relax with a drink or a book any time of the day. In Tochni village our guests will enjoy the authentic traditional Cypriot cuisine of our Tochni Taverna.
