Dear Christalla,

This short note  is just to say 'thank you' for the welcome given to us by John at the apartment in Limassol. My son and his wife (expecting twins in April) have not been to Cyprus before and were very impressed. The fact that he could wander down to the beach for an early morning walk before anyone else in the household was up was an extra bonus.
The apartment is perfect for a family holiday or just for a couple. My wife and I, who lived nearby in Spiridonos Lamprou over 30 years ago, have many happy memories of the area. We are considering returning for a longer stay sometime when neither of us is so busy. I will certainly recommend your apartment to my fellow County Councillors.
We did go to see Andreos at Romios in Kalavasos and had a meal there but it was too late to see your property. However we may try Kontoyiannis House next time.
Best wishes

Hi Chris,
I just wanted to thank you for being hospitable toward us. We had a
good time in Kontoyiannis house and we really enjoyed our vacation,
especially the fruit garden and traditional cheese making ( halumi )
part of our itinerary.
By the way, how is your mom doing? John said she had some health
problems. I hope she is ok now.
Say my hello to your mom and John,

Thank you very much for the flowers, I did send a message with John but not sure if you got it.  I am keeping your card in my wedding box.
We had a great time on our honeymoon, your house is lovely and the people who stayed there were very nice and friendly.  Kalavasos is a very good touring base, even when we got lost in the mountains.
It was very nice to meet your mother and they took us down to the garden to pick some fruit which we brought back to England.
John was saying that the family own two flats in Limmasol, we may be interested in renting one when we come back but you will have to let us know if you are renting or not.
Once again thank you for a lovely time.

Dear Chris and John
I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thank you for a very enjoyable stay at Kontoyiannis.  We really enjoyed the peace and quiet - a welcome escape from our busy work lives!  Hope to see you again at some point in the future.
Best wishes

This was a really good conversion of a traditional house into spacious apartments. No skimping on space in the apartments which were comfortably furnished with good amenities. Converting a traditional home is a much better alternative than building yet another holiday home or resort – which thankfully Kalavasos seems to be free from. The village seems to benefit from the tourists who stay there, without being over run. Definitely a good way to enjoy a relaxing holiday without having to go to a resort! Sarah Cunnigham

Most sincere apologies for not contacting you sooner. I had problems with my broadband e-mail system (I upgraded to broadband at the end of May) and have already tried to send three which I know did not arrive.
Thank you so much for the wonderful twelve weeks in Καλαβασσός from which I have barely recovered. It will be difficult for me to forget that holiday which I enjoyed so much, the peace, the friendliness and courtesy of the people.
I had thought that this long spell might be the last but my thoughts are constantly brought back to Cyprus and I shall keep an eye on your web site and if possible make arrangements for another peaceful holiday in idyllic Καλαβασσός.
I must also thank you for the recipe which I tried and enjoyed and also for the γλυκά which was thoroughly enjoyed by Elena's family.
Thank you again for a wonderful holiday and may I send my regards to all your family.

Dear Christalla
Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed staying in your house at Kalavasos.Originally we planned to stay only a week and then move on. However we found your flats so good and the position of Kalavasos so central that there was no reason to seek anywhere else.
It was twenty years since I was last in Cyprus and then only for two separate week-ends. How much the main towns had grown. We were very pleased we found your Flats on the Web. We have a horror of massive package type hotels
Thank you also for arranging the car which was equally good.
Sorry we did not have the opportunity to meet you.
Regards to your Mother and John

Dear John / Chris,
We felt it would be nice to drop you a little note just to say how much we both enjoyed our too short a stay at 'Kontoyiannis'. It is a pity we didn't stay with you for both weeks of our stay in Cyprus but we didn't know that at the time - we know better now.
The second week in Coral Bay was nice but our stay in Kalavassos was wonderful, the accommodation, the location, the Village and the people were all superb and we had some great evenings with Stavros at the Taverna.
Unfortunately we have already booked to go to Lesvos in the autumn but if we venture back to Cyprus next year we will be sure to check to see if you have vacancies first - for two weeks this time.
Once again thank you both for everything and who knows when we will meet again.
Kind regards
Vic & Gill Anderson

Dear Christalla,

Thanks very much for the lovely accommodation in Kalavassos. I had a
very pleasant time and it was good to meet the family and locals and
have fresh oranges for breakfast. The lady at the little grocery shop
was very kind to me and would not let me leave without offering me some
extra vegetables.

I stayed the next few days in Pissouri and then on to Pathos so I had a
reasonable flavour of the Island by the time I returned but I am
particularly happy that I spaent the majority of my time in Kalavassos.
