Omodos village cottage
Viewed from the quaint and narrow street fronting the complex, it seems just like any other village house. Inside is a different story.
Each holiday suite contains a large double bedroom – complete with 4 poster beds and luxurious en-suite facilities, a well appointed sitting room (satellite TV etc), with far reaching views over the surrounding verandah’s and of course the very latest in fully equipped kitchens – extra sleeping facilities are available in the sitting rooms. These lovely apartments are available to rent on either short or long term lets. Talk to Stavros, he will arrange reasonable and appropriate terms according to your needs.
Take a 1,000 year old village, preserve its quaint narrow streets and old stone built houses, add a venerated and spectacular monastery, sprinkle it all with star dust and you have Omodos!
Around 2002/3 Stavros conceived the idea of turning the family village property into a business complex that fully explored the agro-tourism concept. 2002/03
Managing the extensive family vineyards, fruit orchards and market gardens, Stavros had his work cut out already, but the old Omodos family home was his real passion. His father and mother had – many years ago – converted the donkey stable on the street level, into a wine and souvenir shop.And wisely so, set in the prettiest and busiest lane in a village of pretty lanes,in a central position, close to the dominating Monastery at one end of the lane and the ‘linos’ (the much visited traditional village wine press) just a few steps towards the other end of the lane – it is clearly a perfect position.
Omodos is the centre of the wine growing industry in the mountains, and it would be reasonable to say that the wine produced by Stavros from the family vineyards, is probably the best in the village – and this is a village of more than 50 wine producers! The wine he produces is natural – no preservatives – and a wonderful bouquet. It is only produced for the house and is therefore in great demand – A true agro-tourism product. The family ‘market gardens’ – producing all manner of vegetables – also play a big role in the agro-tourism concept.
Geographically Omodos Village is located just off the centre of the Island on the south-western slopes of the Troodos mountain range.
The southern coast with all its modern entertainments is around 30/40 minutes away and it has excellent road connections to Nicosia, Limassol, Paphos and Larnaca. The clean, clear air and balmy winter temperatures allied to the historic charm of the village encourage year round visits.
