The Old Monastery has had an interesting past spanning over 120 years. It has been used for many purposes including a Police station of the Sultan during Ottoman times, a Monastery for Monks that cared for St Luke’s church situated opposite the property and in more recent times the home of the famous architect Pearce Hubbard who was a close friend of Lawrence Durrell, the author of the renowned book ‘Bitter Lemons’, which tells of a time in Cypriot history before the conflict and separation. The Old Monastery has been tastefully restored and updated by its present owners and exudes charm and nostalgia which guests from around the world enjoy, appreciate and often return for.
