Cyprus, Troodos Mountains
Casale Panayoitis was founded by John Papadouris who wanted to restore the beauty and industry of his beloved mountain village, Kalopanayiotis. The hotel retains much of its 20th Century feel, while adding modern amenities to ensure you enjoy a once in a lifetime holiday full of culture and history.
The village dates back to its former days as a spa town, which is reflected in the ancient rituals of the hotel’s spa. Each of the restaurants serves local wines and fresh dishes using produce from the surrounding farms, while the hotel is in the process of restoring its vineyards and orchards.
A range of hotel child prices applies to ages 0–5 and 6–11 years. The hotel has 43 rooms.
