Sampling local produce

Cyprus is brimful with top notch opportunities for sampling local produce. You’ll want to get out there and adventure yourselves. But here’s a quick-fire guide to where to start.

Fikardos Winery

If you want to experience “wine from the vine” where do you go? To the Fikardos Winery Paphos of course. Because it is one of the first privately owned wineries in all Cyprus. So take a trip to the village of Mesogi. It’s only 20 minutes from Coral Bay. And wine not? Read more…

Paphos Old Town Market

The Old Market or agora in Paphos Old Town is an excellent place to head for food shopping in general, but more specifically all the produce the region has to offer. Make an evening of it in the Old Town. Or get here early to snap up the best of what the day has to offer.

The Place

And if local produce and artisanal arts and crafts are your bag, then why not head to The Place. You can chill in the garden and take in handicraft performance while enjoying local produce. There’s live music in the evenings and demonstrations of weaving, woodcarving, pottery, basketmaking and embroidery. Get ready to hipster!

Aphrodite’s Rock Brewery

A forty-minute drive from Coral Bay up into the mountains takes you to the village of Tsada. Here Aphrodite’s Rock brews golden craft beers so you can keep your drinking arm in practice. Of course, the ales boast British brewing excellence. So take a tipple of a local pale ale. And take your love of artisanal produce on holiday. Read more…

Omodos Village

A mountaintop village high up in winemaking country is the lovely Omodos. Free wine sampling should make the visit interesting with wineries, a pretty monastery, cobbled streets and to-die-for views. This is warmly recommended by the CVR team. Great for an evening at or after sundown.

Well, that should get you going. But don’t be afraid to ask the CVR Team for further guidance. Happy hunting!
