The Local Area
Vouni is at the heart of the ancient wine region of Cyprus. For those interested in wine they will have the opportunity to visit many small independent local wineries and sample their produce. It shares a beautiful climate with the rest of the island but at 2000ft altitude, the air is clearer and local breezes relieve the heat at the height of the summer.
The village benefits from spectacular views over the surrounding hills and on a clear day the sea can be seen from afar. An abundance of wild shrubs and wildlife make this area a haven for the great out doors, especially birdwatchers, hikers and amblers.
The village boasts three taverns all within walking distance from the lodge, where you can enjoy a real Cypriot Meze and local wine in the evening. For those who wish to take breakfast this can be arranged locally on your arrival.
The Troodos Mountains with its many places of interest such as medieval monasteries, nature trails and wildlife is a short drive away.
Limassol town is a 30 minutes drive where guests can visit the busy shopping streets or enjoy the fabulous beaches and nightlife.
For those who take an interest in historical heritage, there are many archaeological sites to visit – including: Curium amphitheatre, Appollo temple, Kolossi castle and Amathus.
If you are a keen Golfer you can visit some of the best Golf Courses on the island. Both Aphrodite Hills and Secret Valley are within 30 minutes drive.
