About This Listing
Spacious, self contained, one bedroom apartment in traditional stone village property. Situated on a quiet road on the outskirts of the village that overlooks the fields and mountains. The private courtyard is a perfect suntrap.
The spacious, self contained, apartment is part of a sympathetically restored traditional stone building, located on a quiet road on the outskirts of Pentakomo village square. The balcony has unrestricted views of the Troodos mountains across the fields of carob and olive trees, sunshine for most of the day followed by stunning evening sunsets. The courtyard is a lovely private space to relax and enjoy the early morning to midday afternoon sunshine.
Access to the three separate apartments is via a communal entrance gate.
Interaction with Guests
We live in one of the apartments and like meeting new people, however are also respectful of guests who like their privacy.
Pentakomo is an exceptionally well located village for independent travellers who want to enjoy authentic Cypriot village life. It is also an excellent base from which to explore the entire island. The villagers are very friendly and life revolves around the square which has a supermarket, butcher, coffee shop / taverna and church.
The balcony is a great place to observe many of the migratory birds that pass through Cyprus, including the inquisitive Swifts and beautiful Bee Eaters.
For enthusiastic walkers, the nearest beach is approximately 45 minutes away, and there are numerous pedestrian friendly routes among the fields and mountains.
Limassol (15 mins), Larnaca (30 mins), Nicosia (45 mins) and Paphos (55 mins) are all easily accessed from the motorway. Many local historic attractions including the Kalavassos Tenta, UNESCO World Heritage site of Choirokoitia and the ancient ruins of Amathus are all within 10 mins drive.
A car is essential, or bikes for cycling enthusiasts ! Parking is available directly outside the apartment.
We don't really have any house rules except to ask guests to smoke outside !
Julie et Phil nous ont tres bien accueilli. L'appartement etait parfaitement decrit. Tout etait tres bien, excepté la météo ! L'appartement est tres cosy et la petite terrasse parfaite pour des petits dejeuners au soleil et ce même pour un janvier glacial !
Merci pour votre accueil chaleureux ! Je recommande vraiment votre appartement !
We really enjoyed meeting you both and hope you return one day for some Cyprus sun ! (I think the AirBnB website changed one of my guest (email hidden)ease let me know if they are not all 5* and I will ask them to make a correction) The ski-ing has been fun today :) Cordialement. Julie et Phil
Wir hatten eine tolle Woche über Silvester in Pentakomo!
Die Ferienwohnung ist super schön und liebevoll eingerichtet, wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Aussicht vom Balkon ist herrlich und die Terrasse/der Innenhof urig und gemütlich. Wir haben es genossen im Dezember morgens in der Sonne dort zu frühstücken:)
Julie und Phil sind sehr nett und gastfreundlich, sie haben sich gut um uns gekümmert ohne jemals aufdringlich zu sein.
Wir kommen gerne wieder!
We had a really good time at Julie´s apartment. The location is really nice, especially the view from the balcony. All in all we would definitely come back again!
My husband and I and our 2 month old baby loved our stay in Julie's apartment. We loved the location in a quiet little village with a beautiful view of the area. It was a very serene and peaceful little getaway. The apartment was beautifully presented and very clean and tidy. Julie was a very welcoming and friendly host ensuring we had everything we needed to feel at home. We would recommend this apartment to anyone who wants a relaxing, quiet break from the big cities.
What an absolute gem of a place...Wonderful warm hosts, it was so lovely meeting both Phil and Julie! The place was more than perfect, charming with many special touches arranged by the hosts and stunning views. The village was authentic and very well situated in Cyprus. Such a peaceful oasis. Would not hesitate to come back again or to recommend to anyone! Hope to see you both again soon. Phillip and Emilija
We spent 9 nights at Julie's apartment and it was absolutely fantastic. The weather was gorgeous and we could fully enjoy it in the courtyard, soaking up the sunshine during the day or stargazing at nights (something unbelievable for us in March!). As long as you stock up on food and wine and the weather is nice, you might as well stay at the apartment the whole time and have the best holiday ever. :)
The apartment is located in a lovely (magical!!!) village and makes for a very good base for exploring the whole island. Easily reachable from whatever airport you might be coming from.
We highly suggest this apartment to anyone wishing to enjoy relaxing holidays.
Taking the breakfast on the sunny private terrace sunbathing at 8AM, in January, was the perfect start to our days exploring Cyprus while back home there was heavy snowfall. The place is warm an cozy, perfect for a get away, in a quite village, easily accessible by car.

About the Host, Julie
We are both from the UK and lived in the South East of France before moving out to Cyprus in 2012. My husband is a stonemason and I am a freelance tv consultant. We really enjoy the pace of life here and the climate isn't bad either !
