What To Expect
We begin our day with a stop at a pottery workshop in Yeroskipou village, where we will see how the potters continue the ancient traditional craft. Our next stop is at the village square where we will see the unique 5-domed church of St Paraskevi, built in the 9th century reputedly on the site where the ancient temple of Aphrodite previously stood. We will also have a chance to see how the ‘loukoumia’ (Turkish delights) are made and wander around the square with its local produce shops.
From there we will go to a small village, Letymbou, where we will visit Sophia’s traditional house where you can see rooms with the original furniture and décor as well as traditional Cypriot costumes. You will learn how she bakes village bread in the clay oven and makes other local delicacies such as the traditional halloumi cheese. Afterwards we will have a special Cypriot breakfast prepared by Sophia with village style bread and tea or coffee (included in the price).
We will continue to Kritou Marottou village where we will see the traditional olive press and discover how the oil is produced today. You will be offered small pieces of bread so you can taste the oil too. Our last stop will be in the picturesque village of Kathikas, located in the Akamas peninsula, to visit one of the largest family owned wineries in Cyprus. The grapes are mostly grown in their own vineyards and they produce some of the finest local wines available. There will be an opportunity to try these for yourself! (included in the price). We return to Paphos via Coral Bay stopping at the sea caves for pictures.
