Kathikas Stone Villa
REF:KAT001 - 4 BEDROOMS
KATHIKAS VILLAGE, PAPHOS - SLEEPS 8
This four bedroom Kathikas stone villa that has been beautifully renovated is to be found, in what is, in my opinion, the prettiest and friendliest village in the Paphos area. This villa has been renovated to an extremely high standard wihout losing any of the old charm and traditional aspects of the original building.
Under the Government scheme to assist the locals to renovate and retain these fabulous traditional houses, the owner has been able to enrich this family property and is justifiably proud to share with us the village traditions and history of his family.
Theodoros, the owner, explains to us that his grandmother produced 11 children in this house which has been passed down to him. In his grandmothers lifetime no houses had water on mains and it was therefore collected in jugs from a well near to the village church. The jugs and the storage areas are visible throughout the villa.
At one time this traditional building would have housed not only the family but their livestock as well. Originally this Kathikas stone villa was made up of several separate rooms for the family with sectioned off areas for the donkeys and the family cow. But today this traditional Paphos villa has been opened up to expose arched doorways and wooden beams. The ceiling has been finished in bamboo, a tradition that the young owner was shown by the older men of the village and carried out himself with the help of local boys.
This Kathikas stone villa now offers all the comforts of todays lifestyle and standing in it's own private courtyard, this Paphos holiday villa is complimented by a relaxing pool area, outdoor pergola with BBQ, fine landscaping and even a private well.
The village of Kathikas is located approx. 22kms northeast of Paphos and takes about 15-20 minutes by car. The area is a prized wine growing area, renowned for the quality of it's grapes. The majority of the 500 village people work in the wine growing industry and many of the vines have been handed down through many generations. Two well known Paphos wineries are open for visitors in the area, namely Sterna and Vasillikon.
Enjoy the countryside, enjoy the history, enjoy the peace and quiet and forge new friendships. This will be a holiday experience you will want to repeat again.
We are proud and thrilled to present this Kathikas stone villa on our website and to offer you the opportunity to sample a true taste of Cyprus at it's best. An ideal location for walking, birdwatching, meeting the locals or simply total relaxation in your own private paradise.
|I just fell in love with your article and had to visit this fabulous Kathikas stone villa. Steeped in history but so beautifully restored. Area was perfect also - not too far from Paphos, Coral Bay or Polis and near enough to walk to a taverna, bakery and Bank. Thanks for the recommendation and the Sterna winery was a hoot!
