The Georgallides Courtyard or Avli at Lythodontas

A beautifully restored mountain village house, the perfect place for a quiet and restful stay consisting of three very old brick buildings with wooden beamed roofs and traditional Cypriot tiles, unified in their restoration.

The Avli Courtyard, an Agrotourism project bed and breakfast establishmennt offering true Cypriot hospitality in an authentic Cyprus Village.
AVLI has five bedrooms, more like separate suites actually,  each with its own private bathroom and WC for guests. Some of the characteristic elements you will enjoy are the reception area with its carved arch and tiled floor, the large kitchen with fireplace, covered verandas with a magnificent view of the village and the hilly environment surrounding it, as well as the sunroom in the raised section of the building.

High wooden beamed ceilings and stone flagged floors, the proper way to build for the climate in Cyprus.

Because of its noteworthy traditional character, the entire complex has been declared an antique building by the authorities and all materials and techniques used for its restoration are traditional and indigenous to the area.


The scenery around Lythrodontas is rich in wild local vegetation, with plenty of pine trees and heady thyme. It is also rich in cultivation of citrus and other types of fruits, vines, vegetables, pulses, walnuts and grain. The village is also involved in raising livestock, while the women do a lot of tailoring and embroidery work.

Where Lythrodontas is on the map of Cyprus

AVLI lies in the traditional neighbourhood of the village of Lythrodontas, a village of the Nicosia district some 30Km south of the capital and built at 420m above the sea level, it is well known for its olive groves mainly cultivated for olive oil production.

You will also find some lovely restaurants in the area, a meze here is sooo different from the tourist offerings in the beach resorts. The sheiftalia are small and succulent, scrambled eggs wiith zuchini, mushrooms and onions, oh stop me now I'm going for a drive!

We have been sending people to Avli for ten years now and are very happy with the feedback we receive from those who stay there. Not only are the surroundings lovely, traditional and authentic but so too is the hospitality of the host and hostess. This is bed and breakfast in the true authentic style of the Cyprus I know and love.
