The real Cyprus

Welcome to the Cyprus Countryside

Cyprus is an enviable worldwide sun and sea holiday destination with year-round sunshine, blue skies and warm waters. However, this fascinating island has much more to offer. Away from the tourist areas, the Cyprus countryside has a diverse wealth of its own with traditional villages, vineyards and wineries, tiny fresco-painted churches, and remote forests.

Whenever a Cypriot makes the acquaintance of another Cypriot, one question is inevitably asked: “Which village are you from?” And this is a question that even millenials, born and brought up in the city, will be able to answer. Everyone, ultimately, is from one of Cyprus’ 575 villages, and loyalties run deep. Each village has its speciality, its produce, its church and patron saint, its local myths and legends, and, more often than not, according to local rivalries, its own temperament. Long before the age of WiFi and social media, the question provided an effective and friendly way to make connections and establish relationships, and this instinct survives to this day. “Ah yes, my mother’s second cousin’s husband is from that village too, maybe you know him?” is the type of query that still helps Cypriots bond.

And when you’ve had your fill of relaxing, you’ll find that in Cyprus there’s much to see and do. Go for cycling, or hiking round the countryside, or take up a new sport. Or wonder at spectacular Greek temples, opulent Byzantine churches and ancient artefacts that are the remnants of a civilisation going back 10,000 years.
