Holidays to Cyprus

by Peter Sylvester

HOLIDAYS TO CYPRUS

Holidays to Cyprus are a joy. As a beautiful Mediterranean island with a glorious climate Cyprus has been called the centre of beauty.

Aphrodite took up her abode here and Alexander the Great and Cleopatra turned their eyes here.

You’ll find that holidays to Cyprus marry European culture with an ancient enchantment which is very much its strength.

HOLIDAYS TO CYPRus- THE SCENERY

This compact island boasts not only sun-drenched delightful beaches but also mountain ranges like the Troodos massif which houses the almost two thousand metre high Mount Olympus.

Cedars and pines top the slopes with vineyards and orchards below.

Meanwhile there are ancient ruins and old stone villages. You would be wise to include a visit to these villages where even the briefest of holidays to Cyprus leaves you with a warmth and a feeling of friendliness which is balm to the frazzled western city soul.

HOLIDAYS TO CYPRus- TROODOS EXPLORED

Starting form the Pitsylia area - where you can enjoy honey, cheese and wine - aim for Platres village. In the upper part of this you will see just why holidays to Cyprus are so wonderful.

Its tiny bakeries, cafes and hotels are complemented by the knowledge that in winter this is an excellent starting point for skiing trips on Mount Olympus.

ROMANCE FOR HOLIDAYS TO CYPRUS.

Honeymooners and lovers enjoy the unbridled passion which is natural to the island.

Over 5000 years ago Aphrodite rose form the sea clad only in sea foam and made this her love spot. Nothing has changed!

Holidays to Cyprus give you the cleanest of Europe’s beaches for languorous pleasure - or the mountains for peace and solitary quiet.

ARCHAEOLOGY IN HOLIDAYS TO CYPRUS

Cypriot history stretches back for almost ten thousand years.

Its beauties are many - as for instance the Neolithic settlement of Choirokotia.

The settlement has starred on the UNESCO World Heritage List for seven years. It has round stone dwellings and a fascinating feeling of a rich social order.

Or you must visit Kourion where you will find an early Christian basilica , a Greco-Roman theatre built into the side of a bluff overlooking the sea, public baths and a House of the Gladiators.

AND FINALLY………..

If you are one of the folk who like to find how the ordinary people live then take a three or four night tour to stay in typical Cypriot villages.

They are restored in traditional style - but are licensed to European tourist standards.

And their prices are very moderate.

All in all life is richer for those who enjoy Holidays to Cyprus.
