Our compact home is situated in a small community of 22 houses. We have all appliances, including a wide-screen satellite tv receiving all UK programmes, European stations and Sky TV. We have internet broadband and wifi,. Our home is air-conditioned and light and airy, with all mod cons.
The main bedroom and the second bedroom both have double beds, the third bedroom has a single bed and another TV, in case you want to watch a different programme from that in the lounge! Also there is a huge selection of books and DVDs. Our TV system has 7 days catchup facility. All rooms have ceiling fans, fly screens and aircon. Our house is fully equipped with sunbeds and parasols for days at the beach or around the pool.
As there are a few steps from where we park the cars to the house, and as the house is on 2 floors, we suggest it is not suitable for someone with mobility problems, or for very young children.
Have a look at the website of the Cyprus Golf Federation-www.cgf.org for details of the golf clubs. We love to hike and we also do bird-watching as our main hobby. We have 2 married daughters,4 grand-daughters and 3 great-grandsons who all live in the UK. We have been house exchanging since the early nineties-the latest being swaps to Virginia, USA in May 2008 and to Brisbane, Australia in October/November 2009. We exchanged in France in 2010 and another swap to Australia in October 2011. We exchanged to Portland, Maine, USA in the Fall of 2012 and Malta in 2013. In 2014 we exchanged to Crete. Last year we exchanged to Italy in September. We are just 2 travellers and we are open to offers. We can supply references. We offer our small Nissan Micra (automatic) as part of the exchange and/or our Honda CRV 4X4 manual shift should you wish to drive off-road. We always aim to reply to any and all enquiries. We sometimes visit our family in the UK during the summer school holidays, so our house is sometimes not available then.
Unsuitable for infants under 2
Suitable for children ages 2-12
We have 2 local tavernas within easy walking distance which serve typical Greek food. However, 6kms away there is the bustling city of Paphos offering many fine ethnic restaurants, beaches, a waterpark and many watersports. Paphos is a World Heritage Site with a mosaics park, museums and many other historical sites. In our village of Armou there are hiking trails and a couple of coffee shops.
A short drive along the (only )motorway are the coastal cities of Limassol and Larnaca-both very popular with tourists. Nicosia, the capital, is well worth a visit. There are now no restrictions on visiting the beautiful areas in the North of Cyprus-across the Green Line-just show your driving licence and passport and off you go! A little further afield are the beautiful beaches on the East coast of the island. They can be accessed as a day trip, but the hotels are so cheap you might as well stay over for a couple of days!
There are 3 championship golf courses within a 20 minute drive of our home, the nearest being Minthis Hills only 5 minutes away. There is another golf course designed by Nick Faldo, which is again a 20 minute drive away.
Although we offer our car for exchange, we do arrange to have you picked up at the airport as our location is a little tricky to find, initially!
