Agros Rose Festival – Cyprus Annual Event

Agros Rose Festival is held this year on the 11-12th and 18th and 19th of May in Agros Village in Cyprus. I visited the Agros Rose Festival on Sunday the 12th of May and need to admit that it was one of the best festivals I've been to. If you really want to enjoy this I would advise you to visit early in the morning in order to avoid the crowds. We were there at 10:30 in the morning, when it was still not that hot and the place was not packed - and you'll find a nearby car parking space. During the festival, visitors have the chance to see and enjoy various exhibitions of products made of local roses, learn more about the procedure of making rose water, enjoy a traditional dance program and traditional music and taste some products made of rose also as other Cypriot traditional products. We visited the Rose factory which is one of the most interesting and characteristic spots in Agros. You will be toured around the factory and hear how rose water is made, from which roses, when and long does it take to produce. You'll get to try rose water, rose chocolates, hand creams, liquors, even toothpaste (everything that has to do with cosmetics is considered to be organic).  There are kiosks serving food and drinks, and other kiosks that sell rose products including food, drinks, cosmetics, candles etc. There's a hop on hop off train touring the area (2 EUROS). Check below the festival plan to get an idea of what to expect if you decide to visit. Agros Rose Festival 2019 Photos About Agros Agros is a village built on the Troodos Mountains, in the region of Pitsilia, in southwest Cyprus, which has built amphitheatrically among high mountains at an altitude of 1100 metres with a population of approximately 1,000.

Cyprus Vavla Rustic Retreat: A Traveller’s Review

Vavla Rustic Retreat Booking.com Rustic means relating to the countryside; rural. Kelly, the owner, emailed me straight away asking me what time we'll be arriving, if we need wood for the fireplace, or dinner/breakfast in order for her to sort it out. We booked at Vavla Rustic Retreat since it had the best reviews and met our requirements. We needed a 2 bedroom country house in a nice village, with a fireplace and traditional  Cypriot feel. Friendly Owner We arrived at Vavla Rustic Retreat and Kelly was waiting for us. She toured us around the place and even showed us all rooms and told us the history of the old traditional family stone house. An old restored house This place has been restored though funding by the Cyprus Government and the EU. The rooms contain traditional Cypriot items which were used mainly for preparing and storing food e.g. bread. They have maintained the old traditional food scales, some cookware, traditional old sweepers, even in the garden there's the original water well (an excavation created in the ground to get water). The garden is amazing! It has the traditional stone oven where you can use yourself to prepare food - if you know how to use it of course. Breakfast Vavla Rustic cooperate with their neighbors Donna Marie and George for serving breakfast, lunch or dinner. Donna Marie and George are former owners of an award-winning restaurant in New York, and are excellent chefs and hosts. They primarily offer a traditional Cypriot cuisine, however are often open to requests, and can also cater to those with food requirements. Note that they serve on a reservation-only basis. Our Country House We stayed at the Anoi, a 2 bedroom apartment, cosy, warm and most of all comfortable and clean. The kitchen literally provides everything! Even a juice maker and a coffee machine. You don't need to take anything, just your food. All rooms are fully air-conditioned. You can purchase a big basket of wood for the fireplace, which costs 15 EUROS, that is enough to last all night and a few hours the next morning. BOOK [...]

There are a few monks living there at the moment, and if you visit the place you might see them walking near the forest, seeking for a quiet place while visitors are visiting.

8 Reasons to visit Paphos Zoo

Honestly, I would never compare Paphos Zoo with any other zoo I’ve been to e.g. London and Edinburgh. Paphos Zoo is small compared to large European zoos, however for the size of a small island the Zoo is a great place to spend your time. Considering that the zoo does not receive any government funding it has managed to develop from a bird park into a large zoo. Paphos Zoo is located in Pegeia near Coral Bay, approximately 3km from Pafos. 1. Open 365 days You can visit any day you wish. The Zoo is open from 9am every day. Closing times change through the year depending on the season e.g from January – March the Zoo operates from 9-5, from March – July it operates 9-6, during August its open until 7pm, September to October from 9-6 and during October-December from 9-5. 2. Biggest Zoo in Cyprus The zoo covers more than 100.000 sq.m, and is Cyprus’s leading tourist attraction. Here you will find an extensive variety of birds and animals from every corner of the planet whilst the collection of parrots and snakes is one of the largest in Europe. 3. Nice environment The zoo has been constructed in a way that offers visitors the ability to not only enjoy the birds and animals but enjoy the magical sounds and nature colours walking through a beautiful environment of lakes, gardens and ponds. 4. Cleanness What is most important is the fact that the Zoo is clean and you will rarely smell the scent of animals. There are a lot of people working there making sure the zoo is kept clean at all times. 5. Parrot and owl show Enjoy a show with flying clever parrots and owls showing off how clever they are and their amazing abilities. Check out the Paphos Zoo website for the show times. 6. Feed a giraffe With 10 EUR you have the chance to feed a giraffe and take a photo along with the kids who will love it. 7. Great experience for kids If you have kids, it’s a great experience for [...]
