The Old Mill House is a stone-built villa bungalow in Limassol, Cyprus that once housed horses which worked a mill. Its cost is equivalent to many apartments for rent in Cyprus yet the experience is vastly superior - that of a luxury villa. It has been fully rebuilt and refurbished in such a way that it exposes stone walls and oak beams as its key features and thus is an idyllic stone villa with all the mod-cons that one would expect in any western house. When staying at The Old Mill House villa bungalow, the nature around will thoroughly enchant you. Birdsong is heard all day (a birdwatcher's paradise), whilst traffic is a memory of your past. The Limassol and Cyprus mountainous views can easily compete with the best of Wales, with the added benefit of a stunning climate (beaches a mere 20 minutes drive); some say there are over 330 days of sunshine per year here. The village (Klonari), in which the villa sits, consists of no more than 20 stone cottages and has a local orange grove, from which all people can help themselves.
Klonari is easily accessible with good roads that provide Limassol beaches 20 minutes away. The Limassol dual carriage way is 15 minutes drive and thus provides rapid access to the many attractions of historical importance in Cyprus.
The village itself allows for many wonderful walks and is only one minute from a British-run golf club (search for vikla golf for its website), which is frequented by many ex-pats. The golf club offers facilities found in many complex apartments as it has a swimming pool, bar, and serves sandwiches and snacks.
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 Limassol beaches 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 besides. The nearest village, Kallaki, is five minutes away and contains a delightful church, café, and a small supermarket that sells all of your daily essentials.
The church across the road is thought to be 16th century and contains original frescos that are absolutely delightful. The lady opposite the villa has the enormous key that will allow you to view a very beautiful excerpt of history and religion.
