Description from owner

Description

If you are looking for a holiday in the mass tourist industry that Cyprus has generated, please look elsewhere. Here, in this property, you will experience the buzz of daily Cypriot life, the way the locals live it. Walk through the tightly built old city, its narrow lanes, and experience what Cyprus is really about.

Visit the local markets, the local “Kafeneio”, eat at the local mezedopoleio. The property is within a stone’s throw of the medieval castle, where Richard the Lionheart wedded Berengaria on May 12, 1191 AD. You will hear the church bells ring and the Imam's call to prayer; the Turkish quarter is only 5 minutes away (walking). And if its culture you are after, walk to the local open air cinema, local theatres or drive to the ancient Greek theatre of Curium where regular international productions are staged.

The weather is good (statistically only 330 days of sunshine per year) the beach is less than 1km (10min walk) away. And that is downhill.

Location description from owner

The Limassol District

Limassol is the largest coastal resort in Cyprus. It is a bustling city, second only to the capital, Nicosia. Yiayias House is located in the centre of the medieval district. This area is not what the locals call the tourist district'; that may be found on the outskirts of the new town.

If you wish to experience true urban Cyprus, the way the locals live it, this is as close as it gets. Here you will find an abundance of cultural and gastronomic venues, including shops, kafeneia (coffee houses), cinemas, theatres, bars, tavernas and restaurants. The old harbour (now a fishing shelter), the new promenade, the Ottoman quarter, the hamam baths (which still function), the medieval castle (where Richard the Lionheart wed Berengaria in 1191) and the new marina are all a short walk away.

Limassol Town

The property is also ideal as a base for exploring other parts of the island. Limassol is served by several new motorways which offer easy access to airports, other cities and the Troodos mountain range. Close by you will find another medieval castle (Kolossi), and the ancient Graeco-Roman cities of Curium and Amathus. There are three 18 hole golf courses within half an hour’s drive and no city is closer to the island’s vine lands. Please visit our links pages (found on our website) for ideas on activities and for information on regular local events such as the WRC Rally and the annual Limassol Wine Festival.

“Excellent”

Reviewed 11 Apr 2012

My wife and I stayed here for a week in October. We found the property to be newly renovated, clean, tidy and well-equipped. Its central location meant that we could walk to the local market, restaurants or to the sea in just a few moments. The old part of town the property is situated in is devoid of modern developments and there are few other holiday homes nearly. Therefore, the area is full of character and so we found it enjoyable to just wander the local streets and soak in the atmosphere. Although the streets are narrow, there was ample space to park the car we hired. We would however recommend using a sat nav as many of the narrow streets are necessarily one-way and we would have found it tricky to find the house on the first occasion with only a map. The owners were very prompt and helpful in providing information on just about anything but left us completely alone during our stay. Overall, this was one of the absolute best properties we have ever rented and would not hesitate to recommend it.

“Authentic historic luxury right in the centre of the old town. Loved it”

Reviewed 29 Nov 2011

We stayed at this spacious house for a wedding in Limassol old town and easily had the shortest walk home of all the guests! It was an ancient house (I think we were told the oldest part was three or four hundred years old) which has been modernised recently but leaving some lovely original features. We loved the antique furniture, but especially loved hosting a mini champagne/sunbathing reception on the balcony for our friends! Parking was a short walk away (100m or so) but the nearby market and castle (and beach) were so near that we didn't drive that often. This is somewhere for those who want to be a bit removed from the touristy beach front and experience the historic old town at its best.
