The cottages are situated next to the Church in the small village of Lemona in the Paphos District, of western Cyprus, reputedly upon  the site of the medieval Summer Palace of Joanna D’aleman. The complex comprises four  restored stone dwellings and a two-storey house built around a large private courtyard adjoining miles of open countryside.
