A traditional village in Cyprus…

Get ready to share in the traditional lifestyle of rural Cypriots…  Join spontaneously in village activities and experience first hand traditional Cypriot life…

Walk with shepherds behind their flocks of fat tailed sheep and take joy in gamboling lambs and the off tune clanking of their neck bells…

Try your hand at milking a goat, filling a bucket with warm frothy squirts…
Collect eggs fresh from the nest for your breakfast…

Fire a large village oven to bake sesame covered breads filled with cheese and olives…

 

Labour in the ancient groves to pick brimming baskets of olives, then pour them into the milling trough under giant stones to extract the golden oil…
Explore earthy tracts between stone walled fields, a landscape that has been unchanged for centuries; don’t be surprised if you come across a rock tomb or shards of broken pottery left from lost civilizations thousands of years old…
Take a leisurely walk through nature’s colourful pallet of yellows, pinks, purples and blues during the wild flower season. Enjoy the invigorating scent of pine and carob forested foothills, lush green valleys and chequered fields. The advent of summer turns the vernal grass into van Gogh yellow sheaves that simmer in the white brightness of the Mediterranean sun, an inspiration for artists of all generations…
Partake of healthy village fare, from the simple crust of bread dipped in olive oil to fall-off-the-bone meats of firin kebab (which is slow cooked in a clay oven) and the unique delicacy of pumpkin flowers filled with rice and herbs…
