About the Owner
I retired to Cyprus 5 years ago because I love the sunshine and the relaxed lifestyle. I am an artist, I spend my time painting and drawing, swimming, walking and socialising with friends, I am also involved with a local dog sanctuary.
I came to Cyprus as a tourist for several years before I fell in love with it and moved here and can highly recommend it as a holiday destination.
5 based on 5 holidaymaker reviews
This was exactly what we'd hoped for and more. The property was clean, comfortable and so pretty, with fabulous views. The pool was amazing and lazing on the shady terrace was lovely with the gentle breezes and scent of flowers. The village, and others in the area, were friendly, pretty and very unspoilt. We explored the area and found a wealth of excellent restaurants and some lovely beaches. A trip up the mountains is a must. Jane is a lovely lady and very helpful without intruding at all. She helped make our stay feel very special indeed.
The Perfect Place to Switch Off and Relax
Our perfect switch off began with a lovely warm welcome from Jane. The apartment is cosy, comfortable, clean and beautifully positioned nestled in the hills with lovely surrounding views including the sea. Just outside the patio doors is a very comfortable patio set under shade, right next to the well maintained pool, the perfect place for breakfast. Evenings spent on the patio under a sky full of stars were quite magical. The village of Monagroulli is adorable and central to so many wonderful places to explore on the island. As this was a Staycation for us, we are so lucky to be able to return during Bank Holidays and enjoy longer stays. Thank you Jane for being the perfect hostess.
All that was needed to a tranquil holiday
I stayed at the property for over a week with my daughter. We were looking for a quiet place just to relax, but also be able to eat out and do some exploring as and when. Thankfully the studio offered us all we needed.
As we arrived, the lady of the house, Jane was there to welcome us and give us some good information etc. She is a nice, helpful lady with good local knowledge. The rest of the holiday was about us having the freedom to enjoy our time, which we thoroughly did.
The location is beautiful and remote enough to be away from the hustle and bustle of normal touristy places, however, if you have a car (which I think is essential) all the places you may want to visit are only a short drive away.
The nearby village has a few good restaurants, takeaways and bars, but you can always go further-afield to other towns to get pretty much any type f food you like. The fresh produce you can buy from most fruit seller (even on the side of the road) are great, and staying in a self-catering place like this gave us the possibility to pick and choose what we wanted to eat.
All in all, there is nothing I could fault about the location and this property; Thank you for making our holiday very pleasant and one to remember!

Fantastic holiday, relaxing and quiet getaway but lively Limassol just around the corner
We've just got back from our week away in Monagroulli, the studio annex was great in our eyes, the pictures didn't do it justice! Very clean, great sized swimming pool all to ourselves which was a god send, exceptional views overlooking the mountains and the Mediterranean in the distance. Having a car is a necessity though as it is rather remote and a good 15 minute drive to the start of Limassol. Our only concern and it was a big one to be honest was the lack of air conditioning especially considering it was advertised. We probably wouldn't have booked our stay here if we were aware of the lack of air conditioning as we both suffer from prickly heat rashes therefore air con is essential for us. There were 2 fans provided but this didn't really help much because it was still unbearably hot throughout the night meaning the only way to cool down was to take cold showers regularly and sleep with ice packs in the bed. This said, Jane is lovely and made us feel more than welcome. It was the perfect chilled holiday and Limassol is a fantastic place to explore.
Lovely place to stay
If you are wanting quite and peace away from the main areas this is definitely the place to be ,,, it's so peaceful ,,, Jane the owner is lovely and goes out her way to make sure you have a pleasant stay. She has a little dog Suzy whom is lovely and there are 4 cats about who hang around one did make rather good friends with my husband whom don't like cats ,,, but he was fine,, the area it self is beautiful and a nice walk to the village shop which stocks are very good and has the essentials,,, the property it self was just how the pictures are in advert, in fact the real thing is much better ,, we had the pool to our selfs which was a God sent as it was hot and was nice to cool off ,, Jane the owner does have a swim sometimes in the evening but we wasn't bothered. We will be definitely be going back to this place for the peace and quite ,,,,,,,,,,,,
From the Owner
“The property is located on the outskirts of a small village near to Limassol. It is the perfect place to de-stress and chill out. The pool is situated just outside your front door and you will have it to yourself most of the time. The views are wonderful and there are many picturesque villages nearby for you to explore. However if you want something livelier Limassol is only a 15 minutes drive away. With it's many beaches, stunning seafront, shops, bars and restaurants, history by the lorry load there is something for everyone.”
Activity and Interests
a peaceful and beautiful rural setting but only a 15 minute drive from Limassol, a cosmopolitan city with many beaches along it's stunning seafront, the brand new marina, the quaint streets of the Old Town, many museums and archaeological sites and of course it's vibrant night life. Something for everyone!
