He renovated an inherited traditional family house in the village of Lofou and he transformed it into a beautiful traditional tavern and named it after the name of the village “Lofou Tavern”. The hotel unit provides luxury rooms, cafeteria and the traditional tavern. The renovated rooms include cooker, living room, dining room, air-conditioning system and internal courtyard. The lightings, the fireplace and the general decoration of the rooms create a pleasant note and a hospitable environment with a choice of single or double bed and couches that can be used as an extra bed. In our well known traditional Lofou Tavern the centre of the hotel unit and the heart of our enterprise, we offer breakfast, lunch and supper in a wide variety of food and dishes. The vegetables and the fruits are always fresh from our properties. The Tavern offers traditional food and a wide variety of local and imported wines at reasonable prices always offered from a wine cooler. And when the mood is high the owner Mr. Costas plays the Bouzouki and sings with visitors old and new songs. A few meters from the tavern is our cafeteria where visitors can enjoy hot and cold drinks with a simple menu. Visitors can enjoy Cyprus coffee and cocktails in a comfortable place with a beautiful decoration combined with the astonishing view from veranda and the soft music.
