Cyprus Luxury Holidays 2019/2020
The legendary birthplace of Aphrodite, Cyprus is a beautiful land of undulating contours bathed in almost luminous sunshine where glittering Mediterranean waters lap golden shores. Inland, rocky plains give way to hills and ‘kokkinokhoria’, or ‘red villages’, so called because of the red-tinged local soil. Punctuated by windmills, these sleepy towns offer a fascinating glimpse into everyday Cypriot life and stand in real contrast to the effervescent coastal resorts of Protaras and Ayia Napa - the latter of which has earned itself an international reputation for great nightlife and stands shoulder to shoulder with Ibiza as a premier Mediterranean clubbing destination.
With its stunning beaches, charming resorts and delicious home-cooked food, Cyprus is a real gem of the Mediterranean. Escape to a local taverna where you can try traditional cuisines. From meze dishes serving up grilled halloumi, homemade hummus and delicious wine you’ll have plenty to enjoy.
