Porfyrios Country House

I am sitting by the pool in the sunshine with my good friends, Klea and Andreas. Klea and Andreas are the owners of the Porfyrios Country House, a former village house built in 1840. When Klea and Andreas saw the old ruin, they did not hesitate for a moment and bought the old building. They made traditional apartments for their guests.

I take a refreshing dip in the pool. While floating, Andreas talks about the history of the region. "Cyprus is the birthplace of the Greek goddess Aphrodite." Andreas talks and I smile. He talks about the Goddess of love and beauty. Andreas and I are similar. I am reminded of one of my favourite phrases that an old Greek man once said to me: "To walk the way, is to know the way it was."

Klea walks onto the terrace with a tray full of meze and wine. I climb out of the pool and toast my two friends. "To life and the past." Full of life, we toast as the sun slowly turns red.

The best way to discover your destination is by car!

Are you booking a flight holiday? Then a rental car of the lowest category (Small Class) is selected as standard for your trip and you have the option of upgrading the rental car. You can pick up the rental car at the airport and drive to your accommodation yourself. 

Are you booking a holiday with own transportation? Then the rental car is not included in your trip and you can (at some destinations) book the rental car if you are interested. When you book your rental car, you can pick it up at your destination and drive to your accommodation yourself. The transport to the pick-up point of the rental car is arranged by you.

  • The prices on this page are upgrade prices. They are indicative for your selected travel duration in the chosen season.
  • The car models shown are indicative of the category they fall into. A rental car in the Small Classe with full insurance cover is included as standard for your holiday. After booking, we will check if the chosen car is available. If it is not, we will try to offer you a suitable alternative. In exceptional cases it may happen that no rental car is available. In both cases we will contact you to discuss the options. 
  • Are you the main driver? Then you must meet the minimum or maximum age requirements as stated in the car rental terms and conditions, have a credit card in your name (including PIN number) and a valid driving license.

Tip: If you are travelling with 4 or more people, it is advisable to book an upgrade or an extra car. You can select the car upgrade in the booking steps. Do you want to book an extra car? Please contact us.
