Pervolia

Pervolia is situated on the east coast of Cyprus, around 9km from the centre of Larnaca. Pervolia is a peaceful and traditional cypriot village with an abundance of local charm.

The heart of the village is where you will find a beautiful stone built church and the quaint cobblestoned square.  The square comes alive at night when it is closed off to cars, and friendly locals & tourists alike venture out to eat and drink at the collection of restaurants and bars.   

Villa Tatiana is situated around 3km from the centre of Pervolia, either a short drive or a leisurely stroll with stunning views of the unspoilt coastline.
