Aphrodities 5, 99489762, Sotira, 5309, FAMAGUSTA
If you like Cyprus village life and can’t choose between that and a nice beach holiday, this concerns you! Avgusta retreat is more than a house, but a holiday place, a space for events and workshops as well as rent-a-room kind of place. Keep your eyes and ears open for yoga and creative workshops to take place in the next following months.
Situated in the centre of Sotira village the newly renovated traditional village house consists of 4 bedrooms, and a large courtyard/garden. Built in the 1930, the building is actually representing the modern city architecture of the time, stone clad with plaster.
The character of the building has remained, while the interior decoration has been made to a more light, colourful and same time rustic style.
There are two twin and two double bed rooms, two bathrooms, a large living/dining room and a fully fitted kitchen and an external barbecue. There is seating in the sun and in the shade as well as sun chairs, table and umbrella.
A large courtyard of 600m2 on the front and sides of the house, surrounded by fruit trees like lemon, orange, fig and passion fruit, shrubs and flowers, is the perfect place to relax, gather with friends, or host a wedding or a party.
All rooms have their own entrance from the courtyard and the big blue court door is a traditional feature of the house.
It is possible to book a room, or if you are a bigger group, the whole property.
