Rural tourism blooms on Cyprus

Cypriot traditional architecture and its considerable local character draw more and more visitors to the island to sample the many benefits of rural<.> tourism. The newest product addition to this alternative form of tourism, the Amarakos Inn, combines the above with the physical and cultural elements of a small Cypriot village and traditional Cypriot hospitality.
With a history that spans some three centuries, this country mansion recently perked up after a complete facelift. All renovations and additions, however, were carried out with traditional materials and techniques. It now sits majestically as if ruling the idyllic and graphic village of Kato Akourdalia, and offers a panoramic view down to Chrysochou valley.
This small garden of paradise lies within lush greenery that`s embedded with vineyards and a traditional winery. The village is about 30 kilometers from Pafos.
The mansion itself consists of seven large rooms, each of which host two or three guests. All rooms are named after the gods of ancient Greek mythology that have played a part in the history of the local area. Two of these rooms can be connected so that a family with children, or two couples, can stay together. The traditional furnishings are authentic and handmade.
Added to the mansion is a villa with three bedrooms. The Amarakos Villa consists of a new residence, built in the same traditional way as the original mansion, complete with large verandahs. It boasts a barrage of modern conveniences (dishwasher, washing machine, electric cooker/oven), and is suitable for families of six to eight persons.
Guests to Amarakos have the opportunity to taste rural Cyprus and experience the authentic life of a small Cypriot village. It is suitable for winter and summer period. Amarakos acts as a base for the exploration of the Akamas peninsula and the surrounding area where all types of water sports are available.
The rural unit also boasts a restaurant with a traditional menu made from home-grown produce, two gyms and facilities for persons with special needs, complete with easy access for wheelchairs and a large internal courtyard with no steps. Information and reservations at www.amarakos.com
