If you're looking for a quiet and peaceful hideout away from the big tourist spots, this place is for you. Located in a small alley in an authentic village, it is the perfect base to start some nice tours to Troodos Mountains. No additional pictures needed, the place looks exactly like on the owners' photos.
I really enjoyed my stay, which perfectly suited my need for peace and silence. Costas was a very helpful host, he showed me around and even took me and my mountain bike back to the Airport transfer station in Limassol (thanks again!). Communication before and during the stay was perfect.
There is a reliable bus connection from Apsiou village to Limassol via Gerasa. The bus from Apsiou to Gerasa is a small van-like vehicle, starting weekdays every morning at 6:30, 7:30 and 9:30 at the village cafe (for a complete schedule, check www.cyprusbybus.com). Thanks to the buses, I didn't regret not hiring a car for a second.
There is a very nice taverna nearby, which serves great Meze and probably the best grilled sausages I've ever had. But they don't offer dinner every day. Just ask.
The cottage has a kitchenette with basic cooking equipment, allowing you to prepare your own food. You can also have a snack at the village cafe. The village also has a kiosk with WiFi.
Things to do around Apsiou are mountain biking or hiking, visiting the nearby monastery, taking the bus to Limassol or visiting other villages.
