CYPRUS – THREE FABULOUS WINE TOURS – 3, 4 OR 8 DAYS
- LEFKARA – 3 days from 3rd July 2017 OR from 16th October 2017
- PAPHOS WINE ROUTES – 4 days from 7th July 2017 OR from 20th October 2017
- A full Cyprus 8-day holiday combining both the above tours. Whether you choose our July or October wine-tours, the 6th July and 19th October are respectively chosen for travel between the two areas. If you book both parts (in either July or October) FREE transport will be provided between the tour areas.
In both areas we will be staying at beautifully renovated traditional houses with en-suite bathrooms. We’ll visit wineries; we’ll taste their lovely wines. We’ll indulge in the local gastronomy. We’ll also allow time for sightseeing and exploring the charms of Cyprus.
[Cyprus Tour 1 – Lefkara 3 days]
We will collect you (on Monday 3rd July OR on Monday 16th October) AT 9AM from the Paralimni area or at 10am from the Crown Resort Hotel Oroklini.
We stay at a charming, beautifully renovated Rustic Retreat. For our first stop, we plan a winery visit and after our guided winery tour – we’ll taste their lovely wines. Afterwards, we’ll go down to Governor’s Beach for a swim and lunch at a Taverna by the sea. We’ll allow you time to relax either in the shade or on the sandy beach. Around 4pm we’ll move on to our base for the next two days: the Vavla Rustic Retreat. At 5pm we’ll set off for a walk along a Nature Trail near Vavla. We have an evening picnic in the beautiful countryside with local produce and wines.
Our wine-tour agenda includes a “winery experience” day at Christoudias Winery, where we will actually take part in the winery’s regular activity: E.g. bottling, making of ancillary products like ‘Soutzoukos’ (Georgian candle-shaped candy), possibly even some harvesting and grape crushing. We’ll visit a bee and embroidery museum, we’ll visit at least one other winery, the remains of a nearby Neolithic settlement and we’ll spend some more time at the beach. We try to strike a good balance between wine interest and holiday relaxation.
[Cyprus Tour 2 – Paphos Wine Routes 4 days]
Please choose either 7th to 10th July 2017 OR 20th to 23rd October 2017. Higher in the mountains, Panaya is our base for visiting the Paphos Wine Routes.
Again we’ll stay at a converted traditional village house. We’ll visit the Vouni Panagia Winery and enjoy lunch at their restaurant. We’ll visit the breath-taking Cedar Valley and nearby wineries such as Ezousa, Tsalapatis and Fikardos. We plan a food and wine-pairing dinner organised by an internationally renowned sommelier who now manages a restaurant in Paphos. We’ll visit the Limassol wine museum and we’ll do some sight-seeing in Paphos. On the 6th July or 19th October, we can drop you off in Paphos itself or at Paphos or Larnaca airport on our way back to the Paralimni area.
[Cyprus Tour 3 – combination of tours 1 and 2 with a day’s travel between]
Please choose either – 3rd July to 10th July 2017 or 16th October to 23rd October 2017. Combine the two above-mentioned tours together and enjoy a wonderful full week’s Wine Tour Holiday for €1300 per person based on two people sharing.
