If you are looking for quality time away from the hustle and bustle of city life and indulge, Vavla Rustic Retreat is the place to go. Situated uphill, in the village of Vavla, amidst the mountains and limy-green hills of Cyprus, the lodge provides the perfect retreat for romantic getaways, not to mention the breathtaking panoramic view of the valley and mountainsides.

Vavla Rustic Retreat is one of those places with a long history, which in this case goes back in time as far as the 19th century. Benefiting from the support of the Cyprus Government and the EU, through the Cyprus Agrotourism project, the facility has been reconditioned and finally returned to its initial glory and beauty.

For those of you who want to get the feel of Cypriot traditions and culture, Vavla is a perfect location. This traditional stone house will not only make your experience unique in the sense of making you feel ‘at home away from home’, but it will also make your stay in Cyprus healthier, thanks to the fruit orchard that Kelley, the owner of the place will be happy to let you pick your seasonal fruit from. So, that’s what makes your breakfast smoothies and juices so delicious! Having said that, it is not exactly by chance that this residence and holiday lodge has received the Green Key eco-certification, which only 11 accommodation providers across the island have achieved to obtain (as a by-note, Vavla Rustic Retreat is the only Cyprus Agrotourism lodge that has the green license).

Mixing traditional construction materials like stone and wood with modern facilities and equipment that we will unravel shortly, this holiday retreat has the unique ability to take you back in time, carrying you through ages long gone depicted only by the old photographs that are all over the place to tell the story of those who once gave life to the home, and bring you back to modernity (without teleportation) and its whole array of technological upgrades.

But what would a rustic home be without any rustic ‘equipment’? The moment the tall wooden gate opens, you are lured in by the homely and cozy atmosphere created by the presence of the clay oven (fully functional and still used by women to make the delicious Easter Cypriot pastries called ‘flaounes’), agricultural tools and clay garden decorations and flower pots sprinkled across the stone-paved courtyard, giving colour to the place in spring and summer when the plants are blossoming.

Vavla is a perfect holiday home that can easily accommodate a family of 4 and their friends and/or extended family, providing the whole attire of modern facilities and comfort you enjoy in your own household, from toaster to airconditioning and satellite TV. What more could you expect of a ‘rustic’ holiday retreat?
