In Greek mythology, Erigone was the daughter of Icarius of Athens. Erigone cottage is located in the picturesque village of Vasa.
The village took its name, which is of purely ancient Greek origins, from the word “Vassa” or “Vessa” that means “wooded valley”.
The area of krasochoria where Vasa is located has a long tradition in winemaking and the traditional restored stony houses dated back to previous centuries.
The village is between Limassol and Troodos mountains and 20m from Kourion.
Erigone cottage stands on the edge of Vasa village in the heart of krasochoria region just a short stroll to the village centre.

In spring and during nighttime is the ethereal yin, when the flowers take on a silver-white glow lit by the moonlight, with the best time to see this around the full moon.
The garden is a perfect spot for those late summer sunrise and evenings; there is ample seating, a dining table and a built-in barbecue.
Inside a small valley and upon its surrounding slopes that are encircled by small and large mountains, plateaus, steep hillsides and cliffs, all overgrown with vines, at an average altitude of 750 meters and at a distance of about 35 kilometres from the city of Limassol, lies built the picturesque vine-growing village Vasa Kilaniou.
Vasa is one of the most important vine-growing villages of the region and even in previous historical periods, it had a reputation for its vines.
Vasa, based on arable land with vines, is the fifth vine-growing village of Limassol; it is also among the top villages that their arable land with vines surpasses 40% of their total range.
Vasa connects on the north-east with Omodos and Platres, with Malia and Arsos in the south-west, with Potamiou in the south-east, and with Kissousa and Pachna in the south.
The village is of the compact, centralised type. Apart from the social factor, the terrain of the region also helped in having this type of settlement. In Vasa, the seductive traditional architecture, with paved streets, with elongated, arched or elevated rooms, built with splendid hewed limestone, is still preserved even today. In several houses, there still are the old wine-presses as well as the modern presses for the production of the famous wine of Vasa and also the distilleries for the production of “Zivania”.
