About the neighbourhood
The property is also ideal as a base for exploring other parts of the island. Limassol is served by several new motorways which offer easy access to airports, other cities and the Troodos mountain range. Close by you will find another medieval castle (Kolossi), and the ancient Graeco-Roman cities of Curium and Amathus. There are three 18 hole golf courses within half an hour’s drive and no city is closer to the island’s vine lands. Please visit our links pages (found on our website) for ideas on activities and for information on regular local events such as the WRC Rally and the annual Limassol Wine Festival.
Getting around
Public transport is at your doorstep (bus and taxi, both local and intercity). You might want to rent a car if you are intending on visiting remote areas of the island.
