Excellent with everything you need to relax and enjoy your stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 9 days and felt very comfortable with very convenience we could wish for. I don't think it is possible to add anything more as everything has be thought of. I am definitely going back to Elia House as it was the best place to stay I have experienced.

  • 5 of 5

absolute perfection! We had an amazing time at Elia House! Giselle was the perfect host and he house had absolutely everything we needed. We fell in love with the area and the village. It's the perfect stop. Close enough to the hustle and bustle of Limassol while also feeling like a true retreat. We will definitely return !! Thanks so much! Laura

5* heaven

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Elia House for a week. Giselle was absolutely wonderful, so polite and extremely easy to deal with. The house is amazing - it has everything you need and more. I adore being in mountains with tranquility whilst being near to the action in Limassol. This villa is a fantastic blend of both. My husband and I are already in discussions with Giselle about our return trip. This villa is a must!!!!

The perfect getaway in a fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, we absolutely loved this place. We stayed here in October 2016 (3 adults and 2 kids) and were blessed with amazing weather. The house is just beautiful, very homely and welcoming, very clean, and stocked with everything you could need for a perfect holiday. The position of the house is perfect, not overlooked, and the views are stunning. The grounds of the house are also beautiful, and the pool is amazing. The village is very well kept, with the square and cafe being within easy walking distance (the food in the cafe is great, and they are so friendly). It's a very scenic 20 minute drive into cosmopolitan Limassol, which we loved. Everyone we have met, or spoken with, regarding Elia House has been friendly and informative. The booking was easy, and Giselle was so helpful and very accommodating, giving us every bit of information we could possibly have needed, without having to ask (including detailed maps which made our drive from the airport stress free). John and Joanny gave us a warm welcome at the property and were a wealth of local information. I would certainly recommend Elia house if you are looking for a private villa in Cyprus, you won't be disappointed in any way.

A beautiful house, gardens and pool!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely house - very spacious and comfortable - a real home from home rather than a holiday let. It is equipped to a very high standard aespecially the kitchen. The pool is lovely with a fountain at one end and there is a big shady terrace where we spent much of our time.

it is located just outside sleepy Finikaria village about ten minutes inland from the Limassol strip with its shops,bars and hotels. The area is very quiet and peaceful apart from the occasional dog barking.

The mountain road down to the coast is a little twisty but it's a good road with plenty of passing space and is very panaromic.

The owner is very well organised and provided us with all the information we needed including a very comprehensive map and instructions on how to find the house.

Finikaria village is about 9km from Limassol sea front, a 15 minute scenic drive. It has a population of approximately 300 and dates back to medieval times. Today there is a church, library and taverna in the centre of the village.

The village and its surrounds are great for hiking, trail riding and nature lovers, with miles of trails, paths and unspoiled scenery. It is a wonderful place to relax and yet provides easy access to Troodos mountain and other popular mountain villages as well as to local historic sites of interest including Limassol and Kolossi castles and ancient Amathus and Kourion Amphitheatre.

A must do for families is the nearby Fasouri Watermania Waterpark, which in 2007 was awarded Europe’s Leading Waterpark Attraction by the World Travel Awards. There are many other family attractions nearby including a wide variety of beaches and water sports, horse riding, go-karting, paintballing and golf among many others.

Golf: Aphrodite Hills' 18-hole standard championship golf course follows the scenic contours of the two plateaus that are divided by a central ravine Its challenging fairways cutting a swathe through lakes, olive and carob trees. No wonder the course has taken its rightful place among the very best the Mediterranean can offer. A premier Golf Academy and Pro Shop enhance your golf experience, while the Clubhouse offers delectable specialities and a breathtaking view of the golf course. Two minutes from the main Limassol - Paphos highway. Limassol 50km.

Vikla Golf and Country Club - The Par 72 course is a 30 minute drive. Enjoy a good days golfing at a reasonable price, offering a challenge to the more experienced and ease to novices. A swimming pool and terrace are at the disposal of accompanying family and friends. Robin, the owner, will give you a free introductory lesson if it’s your first time. Special shoes, buggies, trolley’s and clubs are available for hire.

Santa Marina Retreat situated in Parekklisia Village, a 20 minute drive, offers an 18 hole golf course as well as a variety of sporting facilities. It also incorporates the largest private Stud Farm and racing stables in Cyprus with over 250 horses. Facilities include a club house, riding through unspoilt countryside, archery, climbing wall, and buggies for hire to explore the grounds or to play golf.

Ski: In January and February there is often, and occasionally on Christmas Day, snow in the Troodos mountains. There is a small ski resort with four runs ranging from beginner to intermediate. Skis, boots, poles and snowboards are available for rent. Full and half day lift passes are available. If you are renting equipment on a weekend, it is advisable to get there for 8.15am to beat the rush as the building is quite small. The lifts (3 drag, 1 chair) open at 9am and close at 4pm. There is a relatively good website and it is advisable to check the website to see which lifts are open and also whether the roads are open. Chains are sometimes required after a heavy snowfall unless you have four wheel drive. If skiing is not for you, there are also areas suitable for tobogganing, building snowmen or just having fun.

Visit the website: and check out “Piste Conditions”, “Road Condition” and “Web Cam” which is positioned at the base of the longest run.
