Our best discoveries when living in Cyprus (Nicosia) and never really spending time at the popular tourist resorts
This is a traditional village in Marathasa Valley, in the Troodos area. It's approximately 70 kilometres from both Nicosia and Limassol. The main attraction is the Lampadistis Monastery, which is also a UNESCO world heritage site. There are also sulphur springs, a good restaurant and a beautifully renovated hotel.
A rather unique hotel in a traditional Cypriot village. The rooms are mostly in traditional, beautifully renovated village houses. There is also a spa and a nice restaurant serving traditional Cypriot food.
A beautiful hotel and spa in the Paphos region. In an isolated spot on the mountains. The building is a beautifully restored monastry.
This is a small village some 20 kilometres from Polis. While there is nothing special about the village as such, we very much like the area that has far fewer 'luxury villa compounds' than most other coastal areas.
A beautiful but isolated village on the west coast, surrounded by Troodos mountains and areas under Turkish control.
One of the three medieval Venetian bridges in Cyprus and our favourite.
Our favorite waterfalls near Platers on the Troodos mountains.
A beautiful national park on Famagusta Bay.
This is a newly renovated, nicely decorated hotel in a seaside village close to the Larnaca airport. We often go to the E-Hotel spa for treatments and for their hamam. There is also a good restaurant and beach bar (when open) plus a nice opportunity to walk or swim on the Faros beach. It's also a short driving distance from the salt lakes next to the Larnaca airport where you can see flamingos in the winter.
A village in the northern (Turkish controlled) part of Cyprus with great views to Kyrenia and the Meidterranean sea. The ruins of the Bellapais Abbey are beautiful. Bellapais is also where Lawrence Durell, author of 'Bitter Lemons', lived.
We once hiked from the Buffavento Castle to Bellapais - it took us some 3-4 hours and some mountainous parts were quite difficult, but it was a nice adventure.
Kybele is one of our favourite restaurants in Bellapais - it's difficult to beat the views it offers to the sea and the Abbey. The food is also quite nice.
Our favourite place in Kyrenia is the historic harbour - it's beautiful.
The long, finger-like peninsula that stands out from the map of Cyprus. Famous for (still largely untouched) natural beauty and wild donkeys. The most famous village is Rizokarpaso where some Greek Cypriots still live - the vast majority of Greek Cypriots fled the north upon the arrival of Turkish troops in 1974 but since the peninsula was cut off, the Greek Cypriot community in Rizokarpaso stayed behind.
