The house was built in the 1880's by our grandfather Yiannis Kontoyiannis who raised his 8 children there with his wife Maria. When he died, the house was passed on to our mother who along with our father decided to convert it in the early 1990's under the Agrotourism Scheme sponsored by the Cyprus Tourism Organization. We wanted to keep the family name alive and restore the house to its former glory. Years of neglect meant that a lot of time and effort was required to do this. In 2005 we had our first Kontoyiannis Family reunion in the house, it was a great success with over 80 of us there.
