AGROTOURISM IN THE BEAUTIFUL ISLAND OF CYPRUS
(The Island of goddes APHRODITE)

Travel inland almost anywhere in Cyprus and you will come across old villages with traditional architecture where the traditions themselves have changed little over the centuries.

Cyprus Agrotourism Programme

You too can slip into the easy rhythm of the rural life thanks to the Cyprus Agrotourism Programme, which promotes the restoration of traditional houses so they are fully equipped to receive visiting guests. There is no better or more direct way to experience the life of the countryside, with its folk customs, traditional cuisine and wholesome hospitality, than through the agrotourism programme.

An invogorating and calming experience

Spacious lodgings in the island's hospitable rural villages, create a warm and distinctly Cypriot atmosphere for independent travellers. A stay in a traditional house is both an invigorating and calming experience, thanks to the cozy custom decor and absence of urban distractions, at a modest cost.

And there is a plethora of surprises right outside the door: thousands of different fragrances unique to the countryside, walks down nature trails, and visits to historical monasteries and archaeological sites. You could also choose to linger in the local taverna - or even on your sunny terrace.

Members interested in Cyprus, can also find many photos from posts that I have entered in my travelpod page.

Hi Sianeth,
You just experience the easy rhythm of rural life, nothing like fighting……
There is no rushing in the village life, and you will see hospitable, friendly smiling faces and I am sure you will look forward to going back again.

It is no need to spend a month there though! You just go for this completely different experience.
The lodgings are wonderful and I am sure you will come back with the best impressions with many photos to share with the TravelPod members.

ps.
I don't know if I manage to have the quote, if not, this is a reply to sianeth.
I thank you for agreeing that Cyprus is great!
