Your exclusive day-tour for 2 or more people
In Cyprus we offer in addition to the 3-8 day “Anytime” wine tour holidays a number of “Anytime” single day tours to the Lefkara/Kato Drys, Limasol and Paphos Wine routes – We can collect you from the Paralimni area or a suitable point between that and the Wine Routes, Oroklini, for example.
These day-tours provide a taster of what our full Wine-Tour Holidays can offer. The Troodos mountains and their foothills are so beautiful that these day tours provide a lovely day out even for members of the group who are not wine aficionados. We need a minimum of two people to run the tour. The cost can be reduced by €20 per person if you gather a group of three people or more.
Here is an example of one of our typical days out to Lefkara/ Kato Drys. Details of the other areas on request.
Lefkara is a charming village on the foothills of Troodos and is famous for its lace-making. Even today, as you walk through the village you will, in the warmer months, see women sitting outside their front doors needle in hand, exercising their craft. Lefkara is, incidentally, the setting of the TV series “Πρώτη Σταγόνα” (First drop) – a delightful romantic comedy. Followers of the programme may occasionally see one of the actors walking by in real life or recognise one of the houses.
There are two wineries in the area, Dafermou and Christouduias and we like to visit both with a splendid “Meze” or “Buffet” lunch in between (wine included). On occasion we may go further afield to Anama. Sometimes we eat at the restaurant of one of the wineries and sometimes we go to an outside Taverna such as “Platanos” named after the huge Plane tree growing in the garden restaurant. We like to have a little walk round Lefkara before moving on to our second winery.
It may happen that one of the wineries has a function on our chosen day and it may not be possible to visit both wineries. In such a case we take our guests on an alternative interesting visit such as The Bee and Lace museum in Kato Drys. Kyria Elli, the owner, is a fount of local knowledge and apart from learning about bees and lace it is quite fascinating to listen to her stories such as…. No I’ll let you hear them first hand.
At the Wineries the Winegrowers take us round and tell us of their special approaches to wine-making and the blends or single varietals that they use. One of them produces the only Assyrtico vines in Cyprus (That’s the grape variety for which Santorini is so famous). He doesn’t use it to make a varietal wine but a lovely blend of predominantly Chardonnay and Assyrtico with a touch of Muscat. It goes without saying, that tasting the products follows each winery tour. Our guests also have the chance of buying wine directly during the visits at a saving over shop prices.
What is included in the cost of our single-day tours?
Collection from the Paralimni area or any mutually-convenient point between Paralimni and the first winery we will visit. All return transport to the wineries and other places we visit on the tour, the visits themselves, all wine-tastings and a superb Cyprus Meze Meal or Buffet Lunch at either a local taverna or a winery restaurant.
For these day tours, we ask that the full amount is paid on booking by bank transfer.Or if you are in the Paralimni area we can meet up and collect payment in person. E-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone us on 00 357 96756945 or 00 357 99450917.
