Cyprus has its own, seductive charm and so, even after a couple of days, you’ll find you understand why the island was chosen by the ancient gods as the birthplace for Aphrodite – the Goddess of Love – who was also known as Cytherea; the Lady of Cyprus.
The island does indeed have a love of life and all that goes with it. You’ll discover an endless procession of small villages, each more charming than the previous, and each with its own raison d’être. The mountain villages offer stunning views, religious sites and renowned vineyards. Curium has a wonderful amphitheatre that’s still used for concerts. Kolossi has a powerful Crusader castle. Pedoulas is famous for cherries and its Byzantine museum. Lania is the painter’s village. Lefkara and Omodos create lace. Zygi has the island’s best seafood and Pissouri has a wonderful beach.
Talk to one of our experienced consultants about Cyprus and you’ll also discover that the island has at least three unmissable golf courses – Nick Faldo’s favorite is at Elea Golf Club – as well black sand beaches at Paphos and Limassol, and ancient sites that include the Baths of Aphrodite and sugar plantations that date back to the 14th century.
