Unless you plan to stay in Lefkara for the duration of your visit to Cyprus you will need to hire a car - at least for the days when you plan to venture out of Lefkara. There is practically no public transportation except for taxis and a bus to and from Larnaca once a day. With sufficient prior notice we can arrange your transportation to and from Larnaca Airport, where most fights to Cyprus arrive, at a reduced price. We recommend that you hire a car if you are coming to Lefkara and Aunt Maria's.
If you are driving please note that driving is on the left in Cyprus. Also, the names Nicosia and Lefkosia are used interchangeably on Cyprus road signs. The same is true for Limassol and Lemesos.
From Larnaka Airport: follow the signs to Lemesos (Limassol). Shortly after you merge with the Nicosia-Limassol road you must exit at the Skarinou-Lefkara-Vavatsinia junction.
From Paphos or Limassol: follow the signs toward Nicosia and exit at the Skarinou-Lefkara-Vavatsinia junction.
Follow the signs to Pano Lefkara, disregard the first sign for Lefkara centre (it will bring you through very narrow, winding streets) and continue on the main road until the sign to Vavatsinia, and the town centre. Turn right (downhill), towards the centre of the village. Go to the end of the street (a very short distance) and turn right by the police station. Shortly thereafter the street comes to a stop sign at a triple fork facing the Pavilion restaurant. This is the Lefkara 'square', the commercial centre of the village. Aunt Maria's is visible from the square.
If you are just visiting Lefkara, follow the signs to the public parking.
To get to Aunt Maria's from the village square:
Lefkara Square Restaurant
Take the middle street down, with the restaurant on your right and the school on your left, and take the first left around the school yard. Take an immediate right, then an immediate left into the narrow street. After the turn of the street, you will be facing the gate of Aunt Maria's. Take a right. Parking is right next to the house on your left.
The distances are extremely short. Aunt Maria's is visible from the road. You can also park below it and walk up the steps.
From Lefkosia (Nicosia): From Nicosia follow the signs to Lemesos (Limassol).
Scenic route: Turn off the highway at the Kornos-Stavrovouni exit and turn right towards Kornos and Delikipos. Stay on this road all the way to Lefkara (which is, however, not signed). In the village follow the main road passing in front of the Parking building. With the high school on your left. you will see Aunt Maria's house in front of you towards your right. Turn right in front of the high school (uphill). Take an immediate left and left again to the front of Aunt Maria's. The parking is on your right.
Highway route: Continue towards Limassol and exit at the Skarinou-Lefkara junction. Follow the directions as from Limassol to Aunt Maria's.
