📍 Casale Panayiotis is a Hotel Spa Village on the Northern slopes of the Troodos Mountains Rooms and suites are scattered all over the village, once homes to locals, they are now all lovingly restored to retain their original character and charm but with a unique luxury finish. Beautiful, Relaxing and Romantic. Not child friendly, children are excepted but not particularly catered for. Casale Panayiotis is the perfect couples retreat. Parking is an issue, we were high up staying in the Loutraki suites which ment a difficult walk with a pushchair and luggage from the hotel reception area, but the staff were awesome and offered free lifts. There is a glass elevator at the side of the mountain that can be used up to 8pm and is a must use for the beautiful view. When dining there were five different restaurants to choose from, we dined at Byzantino Restaurant and had the €20 Meze, not a great meal. I was disappointed as the restaurant I had hoped to go, the pantheon was booked up and seemed more casual & child friendly than the others. My only other disappointment is that use of the beautiful spa pool is not included in the price. And any extras you might enjoy are particularly expensive. However we did have an amazing one night stay and enjoyed the drive up to the mountains. I can only imagine that the views when staying at Casale Panayiotis with winter snow would be breathtaking. #casale Panayiotis #troodosmountains -#northornslopes #glasselevators#byzantinorestaurant#loutraki#byzantinocafe#pantheon#kavo#mycyprusadventure#instatravel#explore#onenightaway#spavillage#views
I LOVE a big multi level atrium 😍❤️ The atrium onboard the Marella Discovery definitely is the heart of the ship. There is music playing here almost all the time 😁🎉 I haven't been in the glass lifts/elevators. I actually haven't used any lifts at all yet... The ship is only 11 decks so I tend to always take the stairs 😎⚓ Might see if I can go the whole cruise just using the stairs 🤔💃 Are you a stairs or a lift kind of person?
Finn had an eye doctor’s 👩⚕️ appt this afternoon and we got good news! His 👀 look good and he doesn’t need to wear eye patches anymore. For the better part of a year he’s had to wear an eye patch on one eye for (first an hour, later 30 minutes) everyday to correct what was becoming a lazy eye. Now it looks like it’s fixed! There will be another checkup in 3 months to check in again. You would think the difficult thing would be getting a two-year old to leave the eye patch (it’s like a big bandaid) on his eye for an hour, but no. The difficult part is that the eye patches come in multipack designs and once the “Cars” run out, we’re left with Mickey Mouse or Monsters Inc. which brings on a big disappointed tantrum. So yay! No more! That deserves an ice cream, and the fact that Finn patiently walked around the hospital with me while I was on a conference call that started an hour earlier than I thought. Oops. And I was caught with no toys or iPad or any distractions. So what if we rode the glass elevator up and down 20 times while I was on the call? He was a ⭐️. #nomoreeyepatch#greatkid#mykidrocks#workingmom#glasselevators#icecream#icecreamtreat
