Cyprus Luxury for wine-loving golfers and their golf widows

If you like golf and you like wine this is the perfect holiday for you and your partner: A week at the opulent Aphrodite Hills hotel (http://www.aphroditehills.com) overlooking the best golf course in Free Cyprus and located a few miles from the famous Aphrodite’s rock where Venus was reputed to have emerged from the waves.

For non-golfing partners, a host of alternative activities are on offer:  spa treatments, horse riding, tennis, gym.  There are several swimming pools at the hotel, but also a free shuttle to the hotel’s private beach. There’s a biking trail and a nature-walk trail within a dramatic ravine.

By and large, we are organising wine touring after golf, but there is one complete day devoted to the wonderful wine trails round Paphos. We are also allowing a little time for site-seeing.

Our provisional programme is as follows:

Thursday 22nd October.
Your travel day. We don’t want to do anything too strenuous so we’ll be asking one of the local wineries to come and do a tasting at the hotel , then we’ll have dinner outdoors at the hotel’s tavern with live Greek music.

Friday 23rd October.
We’ll tee off with Golf at the Aphrodite Hills own champion golf course with a snack lunch at the Club House. At around 4 pm, we’ll set off for the Vouna Panaya winery (http://www.vounipanayiawinery.com) in the Troodos foothills. After a wine-tasting there we’ll have dinner at their restaurant.

Saturday 24th October.
We will organise transport for golf to a neighbouring Golf course for a round there. We’ll have a light packed lunch and after golf set off for some wine touring to the picturesque village of Laneia, tasting at the Megaros Winery which has a special way of making Commandaria and we’ll possibly eat there.

Sunday 25th October.
We have what the French call a “Grasse Matinée” – a bit of a lie-in except for the energetic ones who go for early morning swimming or gym. At 10.30 am, we leave for the Kolios Winery where we will have a tour of the winery, taste their wines and have a magnificent meze lunch at their restaurant which has a stunning outlook on the valley below. In the afternoon we’ll have some relaxing site-seeing and a tasting at one other winery. Back to the hotel for a light supper, if you are up to it, after the meze lunch.
