Charma House

"The charm of Cyprus!" I smile from ear to ear. Once you arrive at the ancient Charma House, overlooking the Akamas nature reserve and the village of Goudi, I can only say that charm, or Charma, rules.

The typical Cypriot country house had been owned by the Cacoyiannis family for many years. They grew produce on the land and lived the quiet life that Goudi has to offer. One day, the kindly pensioner Savvas decided to take over from his mother and renovate the house. While preserving the ancient style and using materials from the surrounding area. He built four charming apartments around the swimming pool, made the flowers and palms bloom in the garden and made sure there were windows and seats everywhere overlooking the beautiful nature reserve. This morning, I drove into the town of Goudi and the local life immediately charmed me. Savvas was literally waiting for me with open arms and immediately I tasted the fresh fruit from his family's land. I was allowed to choose an apartment, but they were all equally beautiful with the wooden ceilings and furnishings in the atmosphere of the island.

And now here I am, by the pool. In front of me is the valley up to Chrysochou Bay. "As a boy, I used to sit here for hours, staring and dreaming about what I wanted to be when I grew up," laughs Savvas. He points into the distance and tells you about the most beautiful hiking trails and unbeaten paths.

"Charming house!" I smile as the wind softly blows through my hair. "Charma house" corrects Savvas, but then he sees me smile. "Charming house" he repeats, laughing. And he is absolutely right.

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.
