CYPRUS, a quaint Mediterranean hideaway

Drenched all year round with the sun, lined by endless blue flag beaches, perfectly preserved ancient sites, quaint village escapes and an unspoilt countryside can briefly describe our island.  As a culinary destination, Cypriot food and wine is equal with enjoyment, gathering of friends, family celebrations and endless feasting. Dining options are abundant; the fresh catch of the day by the sea, family prepared meze by a village tavern, trendy Mediterranean cuisine in a renovated stone-built home or dining with DJ live entertainment by the hip Limassol Marina.  Just by driving through the mountainous windy roads one notices that there is a tavern practically at every turn, managed by family members, each one offering their own special dishes and secret recipes.  Make short winetasting stops by the Krassochoria wine villages and sip bold reds and crispy whites.  Walk through the narrow streets of the Troodos region and dine by a small tavern, visit the popular mosaics in Pafos and go back in time by visiting the impressive Pafos fort by the old fishing port.  Pass by the Limassol market, buy fresh vegetables, herbs and spices and join an awarded Chef for a cooking workshop of popular Cypriot dishes, with a twist. Explore the Akamas nature preserve and swim at your very own private cove.  For some adventure, walk through amazing forest trails, ride a mountain bike or hop on a quart bike and experience the grandeur of the Cyprus wilderness.
