Offering ancient ruins, vast wine-regions, sun-kissed beaches and stunning natural landscapes, our luxury holidays in Cyprus can be as action-packed or relaxed as you desire. Whether you’re seeking a tranquil retreat in the sun or a fascinating insight into the country’s past, there’s something to satisfy everyone on this Mediterranean island.  

Highlights

Take a trip to the city of Limassol, with its historic centre radiating out from an imposing castle. In the old town, you’ll find a web of winding lanes and shuttered houses, peppered with cafes, restaurants and bars.

There’s an array of other historical sites too, including the cliff-top acropolis of Kourion. In fact, throughout Cyprus, you’ll find intriguing architectural evidence of the Lusignan, Venetian and Ottoman periods. Keep your eyes peeled for everything from Neolithic dwellings and Bronze Age tombs to Byzantine churches. The entire city of Kato Paphos, which has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is well worth a visit. Start the day by admiring the amazingly preserved Roman mosaics in the House of Dionysus and the village of Akaki, finishing off with a trip to see the mythical birthplace of Aphrodite in Palaepaphos.

Nature-lovers will be enchanted by the sprawling Troodos mountain range, with its breathtaking views and crystal-clear waterfalls. This undulating terrain is home to Mt Olympus, which at 1,952 metres towers over the surrounding landscape and offers stunning views over the valleys and plains below. This area is perfect for hiking and cycling during the summer. It’s also a great spot for some birdwatching. Cyprus has around 200 different species of birds during the migration seasons.

A little further inland, you’ll find extensive pine forests and rolling vineyards just waiting to be explored, or you can head to Lara Bay in Akamas Peninsula for a chance to see the rare green or loggerhead turtle.

Cyprus is also known for its enticing cuisine. Feast on everything from delicious hummus and satisfying haloumi to rich, hearty dishes such as afelia, which is pork cooked in red wine. Those with a sweet tooth can tuck into delicate deserts flavoured with rose water and indulge in the sticky pastry dish of baklava. The influences of Greek, Turkish and Middle Eastern culinary traditions are clear, but Cyprus has its own distinctive cooking style.

Relaxation

The island boasts some truly spectacular beaches, including the aptly named Golden Beach in the north and the beautiful Coral Bay in the west. Many luxury hotels in Cyprus are dotted along the island’s glittering coastline and have their own stretch of golden sand. Whether you’re topping up your tan and admiring the sea views or trying one of the many watersports on offer, you’re bound to find an activity to suit you.
