MY CYPRUS GOURMET

1 000 eur

My Cyprus and how you don´t know it...

  • Date starts 22. 05. 2020 - ends 29. 05. 2020

THE ISLAND OF TREASURES AND THE BORDERS OF PARADISE

In other words, My Cyprus and how you don't know it ...

AND BECAUSE THIS IS A GOURMET TERM FOR HEDONISTS, ALL TRIPS WILL BE DEVOTED TO FOOD, WINE, COOKING!!!

New trips to Cyprus, during which I will present and show this piece of land as I know it, my family and friends. With no time or crowd stress. We will discover the secret places that only we the  connoisseurs know about, and the people who try to get to know the island not only through their flat camera.

We will sit and chat with good food and wine. Time to time  we will learn how to cook the local meals. We will go on the markets, monuments, not hackneyed, to mountain villages where the narrow steep streets are paved with stones, to the beaches that will be only ours. Along the way, we will visit inspirational islanders who will welcome you with open arms. We will go to local craftsmen, gardeners, botanists, artists, healers or perfume producers manufacturing perfumes older than Egyptian ones. Our journeys will alternate with the rest by the sea.

Our home sweet home will be Olympia Traditional Houses in the village of Lympia near Larnaca, where the amazing Kyriakos´ family will take care of us. As the name suggests, these are the original Cypriot village houses (the rooms are conceived as apartments with their own kitchen), which have been renovated according to the strict measures of agro-tourism. The owners furnished all the premises with family the heritage objects.  Photographs, tablecloths, vases, curtains, paintings, you can trace the work of their ancestors. Including external wall. Every corner, different man of the house.  And the whole object is private with a beautiful protected inner courtyard.
