is endowed with inexhaustible historical, natural and human riches,
generously revealed to the visitor. Its traditional villages, enhance
and complement a wonderful natural environment, with their local
character, traditional architecture and village planning.
Such places are conducive to a harmonious coexistence of man with
nature, a coexistence sought by more and more visitors on their
Within such an environment the visitor has the benefit of
the daily hands-on experience of the rich traditions of village people:
the simple, serene rhythms of rural life, folk customs, daily
activities, and the authentic tastes of traditional cuisine; all
filtered through the sense of genuine hospitality.
The Cyprus Tourism Organisation, having considered this
new trend of visitors wishing to experience a new, alternative way to
holidaymaking, has set in motion a programme of restoration of
traditional houses and enhancement of the traditional element in Cyprus
villages, within the framework of the philosophy of agrotourism. The
need for a better and more organised co-ordination of agrotourism led to
the establishment of the Cyprus Agrotourism Company, a body dealing
exclusively with holidays in the Cyprus countryside. Today, agrotourism
is an autonomous, vibrant part of Cyprus tourism hosted in traditional
lodgings of historical value throughout Cyprus, ready to offer a new,
alternative holiday ideal.
These restored lodgings create a warm atmosphere that will
be engraved deep in your memory. At the same time, you will enjoy the
comfort of a household that will soon feel like home. From then on await
a handful of pleasant surprises nature has in store for you: millions of
different scents, images of unparalleled beauty, walks down nature
trails, visits to historical monasteries and archaeological sites, the
real life of the country.
You'll see and enjoy one day after the other and you will
be overcome by a feeling of invigorating rejuvenation. As for the
cuisine in these places, it is certain that you will be missing it for a
long time after you've had a taste.
Suffice to say, agrotourism is not something you describe but
something you experience. We will simply guide you through the wonderful
world of the 53 lodgings included in this website.
Make your choices and set off to meet the life of nature and tradition
in the Cyprus countryside.
