There lies area is an unspoiled paradise in the Dharizos valley where migratory birds such as Francolins, kestrels, vultures, hoopoes, beeaters, warblers and kingfishers feed or rest, while on their migrations route to warmer regions.
It isn’t unsurprising then that Vasilias Nikoklis Inn can be seen as an appropriate refuge for those wishing to be at the closest to the wildlife while enjoying natural Cypriot Hospitality.
Depending on migration conditions, half an hour sitting on your room balcony can be very rewarding. For example, we’ve seen Eleonora’s falcon, alpine swifts, red-rumped swallows, bee-eaters, and various waders this way. You can hear stone-curlews calling from the river bed day and night, and black francolins call from the fields next to the hotel. There are resident scops owls, and barn owl and little owl can be heard most evenings. As witnessed by Kathleen Rosewarne and Ian Burton April 2011
The inn sits in a very quiet and peaceful setting in the Dharizos valley, north of the small village of Nikoklia, close to Paphos Airport among nearby orange and lemon groves adding a delightful fragrance to any moment enjoying the outdoors.
