On the approaches to Neokhorio from the coast, to the left as you enter the village.
There are just 30 units, 6 studios and 24 1-bedrooms apartments, in 6 clusters around the pool; about two-thirds of them look to the sea. Inside, they’re light and airy, pleasantly (to me) time-warped with their honey-coloured pine furniture, print bedspreads, tawny curtains and mosaic flooring. The 1-beds are a generous 40 square meters, and easily fit 2 adults and 2 kids, though cooking for 4 on the two-ring gas hobs provided could be tricky. Studios are only suitable for an adult and a very small child. Unusually in such accommodation for Cyprus, telephones are also supplied.
These are confined to the sunny lobby, with more earth-toned furnishings, the breakfast area, and a snack/cocktail bar with pool service.
Eating and drinking
Breakfast is available on request; evening meals are prepared only for hiking/mountain-biking groups, of which there are many in spring and autumn. Independent travellers can walk to two good tavernas in Neokhorio proper.
Restricted to a decent-sized pool.
Andreas and Dora are excellent, fluent-English-speaking hosts.
Who stays there
British, Dutch and German lovers of the Akamas region, many of them repeat clientele, both direct booked and through packages.
Posted rates of 75 euros for a 1-bed, 65 euros for a studio haven’t risen in some time and are fairly constant across the season. Breakfast (and air con) are extra. The complex is closed from mid-November to mid-March.
