About Thecla Perkins
I’m Thekla, a Greek Cypriot who grew up in Lythrodontas but left about 30 years ago when I married Simon. I knew I would always come back to the village because I love it and the people; fortunately Simon does too! We now live in England but have visited Cyprus at least once every year since and even more now we have our own place, Elaia, to enjoy. Simon is from the UK and loves the village. He does quite a bit of cycling and we both like walking so we find the local countryside amazing for both. Walk out in any direction from the village and you will lovely country side to walk or ride a bike. Fresh air, sun the smell of mountain herbs and trees.
Thecla Perkins purchased this House in 2003
Why Thecla Perkins chose Lythrodontas
We wanted to have a place in the middle of the village rather than outside so we would be able to enjoy being part of village life. The property belonged to my grandparents and we bought it from the family when it was abandoned and in great need of repair. We restored and extended it, adding a new bedroom block, but keeping the traditional style, with all the rooms set around a central courtyard. We are delighted with it! The village itself is tucked away among olive and pine trees with the horizon lined by the hills and mountains of the Troodos range. It’s easily accessible from the motorway network. Many villagers commute to Nicosia, 20 miles away, but are still home every night, which means the village continues to thrive.
What makes this House unique
The property is very spacious, indoors and out and offers complete privacy despite being in the middle of the village. The secluded courtyard with its lovely scented jasmins and citrus trees is ideal for relaxing and outdoor dining. Elaia is only 100 metres from the leafy village square, an excellent restaurant and other shops. Guests are always made to feel welcome with the opportunity to meet friendly local people. There are walking paths nearby and villages and mountains to explose. Exploring the meandering streets of the old city of Nicosia is one of our favourite pastimes, and many of our guests have used Elaia as a base for exploring further afield – Whatever your plans Elaia is a delight to come back from a day out, a true oasis, a hideaway to relax and be refreshed.
