Some of the great aspects of Cyprus are the many possibilities for outdoor dining under the sky and in warm summer like weather. Our Village Feast is a truly memorable evening with a setup at an authentic village square with long tables, festive lighting and an abundance of local delicacies – the famous local ‘meze’, not to mention the organic village wine! Fun and entertainment is provided by the partly acrobatic folklore dance show with popular Greek music. A Village Fair “Panayiri” can further enhance this event as well as a performance of a Cypriot village wedding. The island’s long and rich history can lend several themes or as a backdrop to an important Award Ceremony, Cocktail Party or for the good fun of a Themed Dinner.
Such could be a Medieval Feast, recreated with pomp and colourful flair to rival Richard the Lionheart’s court. Experience a feast fit for kings – succulent roast on the spit, the famous local wines, all in a stunning decor of tall candelabras, medieval swords, armours, war shields and banners. Reaching further back in history, the venue is transformed into a Greek villa for a Symposium Night, with ornate pots, large columns, drapery and tall candleholders. A spectacular meal, fit for the Greek gods, will be prepared with plentiful of wine. The dress attire will be Togas, with bay leaf head wreaths and Greek leather sandals and the spirit of ancient time is experienced through a “mythology inspired” dance performance.
Some historical venues suitable for such themes is the Pafos Fort, originally built as a Byzantine fort to protect the harbour, used also as backdrop for the annual Pafos International Opera Festival. The Fort and old port setting can also be the venue for an exclusive gala dinner, with elegant round tables, the finest of table décor and settings. A culinary extravaganza catered by the top chefs on the island, creating a unique Mediterranean menu with the best list of special reserve local wines. In this grand setting, entertained throughout the evening by a repertoire of international music. An abandoned Monastery in the Pafos region, with a spacious cobble-stoned courtyard is an ideal setting for a unique Farewell or elegant Gala Dinner, dressed with special lighting, chic table settings and an international music repertoire for dancing the night away under the starry sky. The cosmopolitan town of Lemesos, home of the Carnival in Cyprus, is famous for the party atmosphere that envelopes the town during the two weeks of Carnival each year. Join in the fun at a Fancy Dress Party or make your own crazy outfits “pellomaskes”, in a colourfully decorated setting full of balloons, streamers and carnival masks.
