There is wonderful wildlife to enjoy either on foot or by bicycle as well as fishing, horse riding and forest trails.

All guests are warmly welcomed with traditional Cypriot hospitality and instantly feel at ease as they soak up the relaxing ambience.
Casale Panayiotis offers its guests unique accommodation as each of the 29 rooms was once a village house that has been individually renovated and furnished with old village furnishings and textiles blended with chic modern pieces that offer understated luxury.
The hotel is owned by John Papadouris, a local civil engineering magnate who wanted to regenerate the village he was born in with a new type of agrotourism and his passion for mountain life.
Casale Panayiotis has lovely restaurants which serve the best of Cypriot cuisine prepared with locally sourced mountain produce and wild herbs.

The menu offers the very best in Cypriot cuisine, beautifully prepared using local produce and elegantly served. The tempting array of dishes includes local trout, keftedes (meatballs in a herby tomato sauce), koupepia (stuffed vine leaves) and probably the best Moussaka you will ever taste!
Each traditional dish is a delicious blend of ingredients and the island’s history and culture.
Loutraki is an elegant boutique restaurant which offers guests great contemporary dining.

The grill selection includes great steaks, lamb, chicken, pork spare ribs and even goat & Halloumi burgers. There is a selection of ‘Big Plates’ too and these include several vegetarian alternatives. Always leave just a little room for the dessert because the choice is extremely tempting!
Kava is extremely special as it incorporates a cocktail bar and subterranean dining area adjacent to the wine cellar that is sparkly, chic and the perfect setting for family celebrations and special dinners. Kava is well-stocked with a comprehensive wine selection including many excellent Cypriot wines – some produced just a short distance away.
