Cottage overview - owner's description
The Old Mill House is possibly the most tranquil location for a retreat guaranteeing the most refreshing holiday. It is a stone-built bungalow that once housed horses which worked a mill. It has been fully rebuilt and refurbished so that it exposes stone walls and oak beams. It is thus an idyllic stone village house with all the mod-cons that one would expect in any western house. When staying at The Old Mill House, the nature around will thoroughly enchant you. Birdsong is heard all day, whilst traffic is a memory of your past. The mountainous views can easily compete with the best of Wales, with the added benefit of a stunning climate some say there are over 330 days of sunshine per year here. The village consists of no more than 20 houses and has its own orange grove.
The Local Area
Klonari is easily accessible with good roads that provide beautiful Limassol beaches only 20-25 minutes away. The dual carriage way is 15 minutes drive and provides rapid access to many attractions of historical importance.
The village itself allows for many wonderful walks and is only one minute from a British-run golf club (www.vikla-golf.com), frequented by many ex-pats. The golf club has a swimming pool, bar, and serves sandwiches and snacks.
The church across the road is thought to be 16th century and contains original frescos which are absolutely delightful. The lady living opposite the house has the enormous key that will allow you to view a very beautiful excerpt of history and religion.
The Local area - more details
The area is ideal for bird watching/ornithologists, mountain walking and amblers, those generally interested in nature, and golfers. Children can play in a very quiet area, adults can enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the village and location, and everyone could drive for a day out to the beach or other Cypriot locations. The nearest main city is Limassol, which has bars, restaurants, beaches, a port, a castle, museums, compact shopping centre, and much more. The nearest village, Kallaki, is five minutes away and contains a further delightful church, café, and a small supermarket that sells all daily essentials.

Very beautiful and calm place. The house is really nice and functional, we spent a great time there!
The Old Mill House is a unique experience, it would not suit everybody but for those who like to be in a fairly remote location with access to a network of paths and tracks and some wonderful views of the surrounding mountains it is a lovely place. There are many minor roads to explore the surrounding countryside and remote villages. You will hear the local cockerels early in the morning, there are cats who will try to get into the property and dogs which bark on a neighbouring farm. The owner was extremely helpful before, during and after our visit. The property is well presented and there is air conditioning in all of the rooms. I would return to the property at a different time of the year and would be happy to recommend it to friends.
The house would have benefited of a little more saucepans and plates for cooking. The replacement of carpeting by a tiled floor would make the house much easier to clean.
Otherwise, despite those minor things, the house is nice, well equiped and easy to live.
Special bonus point: the description and the directions to find the house are definitely well done. The house is really easy to find even at 11pm.
If you want peace and tranquility, and be reasonably close to a large urban center, this is definitely the place.
The old Mill house is located in the charming village of Kellaki. The villagers are friendly without being nosey. The location is breathtaking in the mountains of Cyprus. It brings you back to a time where life wasn't so fast paced.
The old Mill house itself is a well modernized old building, clean, sunny, pleasant, and includes all the amneties needed to make a comfortable stay.
We honeymooned there for 2 weeks and we wished we could have stayed longer.we hope to come back for our 5th wedding anniversary.
Well, what a lovely cottage and as we had hoped found it a fantastic quiet retreat away from all the hub bub of Limassol. Maria was wonderful and on arrival she had left goodies in the fridge for us which we were most grateful for. We thought that the house was charming, well equipped and very comfortable and a lot of thought had obviously been put into ensuring that the guests have a good stay. It was lovely being in such an unspoilt area of <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 />Cyprus, just our cup of tea! The amazing views can only be seen to be believed. As we returned to the cottage each evening we would park the car enroute so we could look at the incredible sunsets over the mountains. We did venture up to Vikla Golf Club where Robin was most welcoming saying we could use the pool anytime on popping a small donation in a pot on the bar. The wild life was fascinating, on returning late one night the was a small hedge hog (with long ears!) waiting for us on the door step we have taken numerous photos of cats, goats, swallows, hens, lizards and much more. We would definitely consider returning to this wonderful spot. Thanks Robin.
