Gremos is a peaceful and visionary home, which is sure to generate a family holiday of treasured memories. Built in 1978, before the Germasoyia reservoir became a protected nature reserve, its cliff top site is now a most exclusive location. On the upper ground level there are two bedrooms, a bathroom, and a huge wood beamed kitchen/living room, which opens out onto the covered dining terrace. A roofed parking slot adjoins the separate utility room. On the lower poolside level there is the en-suite master bedroom with a bunkroom and another bathroom. Both the house and the garden look down to the lake below with wide-open views stretching across the water to the distant Troodos Mountains. You will find yourself sharing this wonderful view with kestrels soaring the cliff face while below at the lake, waterfowl and fish abound. The overflow pool has a level depth of 130cms and is surrounded by a shallow basin safe for smaller children. The pool is fitted with a presence sensor/alarm.

Mountain biking, Road biking, The foothills and the Troodos mountains are becoming increasingly popular with sport cyclists. There is an extensive network of dirt roads in the forested mountain areas which are maintained by the forestry service for fire prevention access and make up a huge natural playground for mountain bikers. The tarmac back roads in the foothills inland of Limassol are also ideal terrain for road bikers as there are many good climbs and very little car traffic on the roads. We have hosted several biking groups in 2011 and 1012 where the house proximity to these excellent local circuits is the main attraction.
The split level of the accomodation suits groups of two families both with children, or extended family groups where the eldest generation appreciate some separation from the youngest of the tribe. All bedrooms have air con and fly screens on the windows. The master bedrrom can be made up as two singles or one large double bed.The three main bedrooms all have extensive built in wardrobe space. The bunk room downstairs has a shared access to the en-suite bathroom of the master bedroom. There are excellent clothes washing facilities in the utility room which is also used at times as a separate quiet space for drawing, painting or reading....moreless
The hot water system of the house is solar heated and backed up by a gas boiler system which powers the central heating. The upper level bathroom has a toilet, a basin, and a 120cm by 80cm shower enclosure The bathroom door is in a short corridor between the two upper level bedrooms. The lower level bathroom which has a combination bath tub and shower enclosure, has two entry doors, one from the master bedroom and the other from the bunk room, which works really well for parents with their children. Both shower systems have fixed overhead sprays and flexible child level handsets. The third bathroom has a flexible handset shower. Access is from an outside door on the lower poolside terrace, next to the bunk room entry door. The toilets are of a design which incorporates a bidet facility....moreless
Due to the proximity of the cliff and the village road we have made sure that the house is also user-friendly for families with younger children. The perimeter of the property is fully fenced and gated on the road side and the tops of the terrace stairways are gated also. In addition to the drive-in parking space on the upper level, there is a large gated parking lot on the lower level. The windows of the bedrooms and the bathrooms are fully fly-screened as are the windows of the living room. Together with the air conditioning this permits bug-free sleeping spaces. For pool safety, a system is available to detect any presence in the water, triggering a loud alarm and there is also a wireless repeater alarm inside the house. Winter time lets are also very comfortable thanks to the double glazing, the gas fired central heating and the efficient thermal insulation of the building. The pool can be covered mid season with a thermal bubble pack cover to maintain day time warm up by the sun...moreless

Gremos is 5 kms from the coast in the Troodos foothills between the villages of Foinikaria, Germasoyia and Agrounda. The Germasoyia Dam is a haven for water birds and fish. Growing environmental awareness has led to the recognition of this precious wetland area and protective measures have been taken. Construction has been limited on the shores of the reservoir and nature trails have been set up. A rowing and sport-canoeing club has developed its activities on the water and fishermen come up daily to try their luck in the lake for the plentiful carp. A 15 min drive takes you down to the sea front Tourist area where you can find all the beach Hotels, Restaurants, Pubs and other tourist activities that Limassol is famous for The fascinating Vikla golf course is only a half hours drive away into the hills. Mount Olympus, the 2000mt summit of the rugged Troodos mountains is within an hour's drive, climbing up through Pine and Cedar forests past waterfalls and charming mountain villages
