About Us

At Cyprus Villages you have 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 with the locals and settle into an easy-going Mediterranean lifestyle that respects and nurtures timeless traditions. Before you know it, you'll feel part of the local community, enjoying the generous Cypriot hospitality that can be summed up in a single word: "kopiaste" meaning "come and join us!" 

Our holiday apartments have been beautifully restored in a traditional style while providing modern comforts, original character and individuality. We are located away from commercial mass tourism but centrally located on the island, perfect for discovering all authentic parts of Cyprus. Our guests can fully relax and enjoy their time off from their hectic routine, in the countryside and on the nearby beaches.

Cyprus Villages was 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.

Cyprus Villages offers you a choice of studios, 1 and 2-bedroom apartments with self-catering facilities in a well-equipped kitchenette, and central heating/air-conditioning and access to a shared pool. Admire 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 every village, a swimming pool with sunbeds is always within easy reach and reserved for our guests. Our accommodations at Tochni village are booked only on breakfast or half board basis where our guests will enjoy the authentic traditional Cypriot cuisine of our Tochni Taverna. Our accommodations at Kalavasos village are booked on a self-catering basis.

Tochni Village

Tochni, a small and picturesque village, lies between Larnaca and Limassol. Set on the slopes of two hills, its stone-built houses line the narrow streets that wind their way to the beautiful church of Constantinos and Eleni.  The apartments can be reached by narrow steep footpaths.

Tochni village is centrally located and close to the sea (7km) an ideal spot for those who are planning a holiday that combines relaxation on the beach with day tours to explore the whole island.   The CYPRUS VILLAGES reception and our Tochni Tavern by the pool offer a panoramic view of the whole village, the serene village countryside.


Kalavasos Village

Kalavasos is one of Tochni’s neighbouring villages, only 3 km away. The attractive village square is a place where residents and visitors meet & mix for a friendly chat, a drink in one of the cafenions, or a meal in one of the traditional taverns. During the day, a swimming pool awaits our guests, and in the evenings, the stone-paved roads and mild temperatures will tempt you to stroll under the stars.  The apartments are easily accessible and are set just behind the village square. Our accommodations at Kalavasos village are available only on a self-catering basis.

Eintauchen in Zyperns Seele: Leben zwischen Gelassenheit und Galgenhumor

Eintauchen und Verstehen...
Wenn in der Bank der Safe offen steht, ist das Vertrauen oder Leichtsinn? Wenn Sex nur an bestimmten Tagen erlaubt ist, warum verhüten? Wenn alte Frauen von ihrem Schicksal berichten, was kommt da nicht an alles ans Tageslicht! Marisa erzählt herzerwärmende Geschichten von ihrer kleinen Farm, zu der auch die niedlichen Hängebauchschweine Porgy und Bess gehören. Wer die Mittelmeerinsel Zypern in ihren unglaublichen Facetten verstehen, den betörenden Duft der Pflanzen atmen und ihre Früchte genießen will, wer den wunderbaren Menschen folgen möchte, dem bietet Marisa hier vorzüglichen Lesestoff - feinsinnig, persönlich, anrührend.
