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.
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.
And if local produce and artisanal arts and crafts are your bags, 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, basket making and embroidery. Get ready to hipster!
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…
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.
