The story of Cyprus is that of the human journey. For thousands of years, successive arrivals - Greeks, Byzantines and Ottomans - have contributed to create a unique Mediterranean culture that prizes good living. The island’s warm Mediterranean climate also makes it a place to visit year-round.


Where to go

Cyprus lends itself to exploration by car or scooter - every bend in the road reveals pristine white beaches such as those at Coral Bay or Konnos Bay. Inland lie the ruins left by the ancient Greeks who first settled the island, such as those at Old Paphos. The ‘old towns’ of Kyrenia and Limassol rewards the visitor with boutique shopping experiences, in addition to charming, quirky bars and restaurants.. Paphos is a vibrant centre of nightlife. Of course, you could simply spend all day lounging by your hotel pool. Those who seek to dive a bit deeper underwater might enjoy the wreck of the Zenobia, one of the world’s great dive sites, off the Lamaca coast.



Food & Drink

Cypriot cuisine, like many in the region, is based around the sharing of small dishes - known here as ‘meze’. These include meat (in particular, lamb), seafood and vegetables dishes that are commonly accompanied by Brandy Sours, the unofficial national drink. Of course, there’s no escaping fried haloumi, served with almost everything. Cyprus also has a proud winemaking tradition - the local favourite, Commandaria, is the world’s oldest named wine. Every city features a crowd of family-owned taverna that attempt to outdo each other, but there are some standouts. Seven St Georges (Georgíou M Sávva 37, Paphos) is known for its meze, sourced from local farm produce. Psyida (Menándrou 5, Nicosia) offers outstanding seafood in a converted family home.


Nightlife

Cyprus really gets going after dark. Around the harbours of coastal towns or cities, taverna put on live entertainment and DJs throughout the summer months. In addition, most of our hotels host live entertainment daily. For those looking for something a little different, we recommend Timothy’s Art Bar (off Angélou Geroúdi, Ktima Paphos), an idiosyncratic venue, located in an old home, that offers jazz and cocktails. Similarly, the 1900 Art Cafe (Stasínou 6, Larnaca) offers a staggering selection of whiskeys, beers and spirits, along with an eclectic soundtrack.


Where to stay

Our trio of luxury hotels near Paphos - Almyra, Anassa and Annabelle - each offer a wide variety of revitalizing spa treatments, in addition to a selection of bars and restaurants. Our Almyra and Annabelle hotels are both surrounded by lush gardens through which to wander and unwind. Casale Panayiotis, located in the mountains near Nicosia, is a charming boutique hotel and spa that combines rustic charm and luxury treatments using water from a natural spring.


How to get there

Many airlines, including British Airways, Easyjet and Ryanair fly to Cyprus daily. Major airports are located at Paphos and Lamaca. There are also a few ferries each week from Tasucu in northern Turkey to Kyrenia, on the north coast of the island.
