“Great holiday home in charming Cypriot village”
Reviewed 31 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Just returned from a fantastic 10 days in Cyprus, staying in Monica's great holiday home. We wanted somewhere quiet, away from the tourist traps but within easy reach of all the sights and attractions that Cyprus has to offer. That's exactly what were got in Akapnou.

July is hot - we had thought that being in the foothills of Troodos might have kept things cool but it was still hitting 35c so the swimming pool was used every day (a must for our 3 year old).

Akapnou is a very sleepy (but charming) village about 30 minutes north of Limassol. We had lots on our To Do list (including heading north over the green line) and it was a great base camp location. The roads, although steep in places, are in really good condition and you certainly don't need a 4x4 unless you plan to head to the Akama or Karpaz Peninsulas.

The house is made of 3 apartments (I think) but we were the only ones staying there and had full use of the pool and courtyard area. The apartment is fully equipped with kitchen, sitting room, indoor and outdoor tables, bathroom (there is a shower in the bathroom but the shower by the pool was even better), and there were plenty of card games and books ready for a rainy day (we never needed them!). Although Akapnou didn't have any shops or restaurants of its own, it is within 5 minutes drive of lots of other little villages that do so we had some really delicious meals. One thing which was missing was a guest comments book which would let guests share their tips, but the owner Monica gave us all the information we could possibly have needed before we arrived so we were all set.

It would not be a complete review without mentioning how exceptionally helpfully Monica was in all aspects of the stay. Monica lives in London but sees Akapnou as her home from home. She answered all emails right away during the booking process, was able to advise us on what to do, where to do it, shopping, cooking, eating, beaches etc etc etc, and was on hand via mobile (there is mobile connection and WiFi!) even while we were there to help when we couldn't figure out the washing machine. Monica also has a very helpful cleaner, Maria, who comes once a week and also did a quick shop for us before we arrived so we would have some supplies for breakfast.

All in all, a great holiday home which made for a hugely enjoyable 10 days.
