So What & Where Is The Real Cyprus Then?
Now that is a very good question and bear in mind of course this is our interpretation and our experience, but we feel that most people would probably agree with us.
We have had many people, family and friends over the years.. 25 years to be precise, visit us when we lived there off and on and just about everyone said..
So our aim is to help you get the most out of your visit to this terrific island. We want to shortcut your knowledge curve and add some info to the guidebook you already have and so on......
In our opinion...the real island atmosphere of cyprus...
...Is found not just in the hill villages around the island it is everywhere but you have to know where to look!
The real kind of cyprus to us is found in the food of the island, the warmth and hospitality of its people and in the places where life still goes on undisturbed in the same traditional way it has done for years, even in the city!
You won't find it in the touristy restaurants charging a fortune for rubbery squid or in the "souvenir" shop selling snow globes from Taiwan!
Rest assured we want to give you the best information for your visit to this wonderful island and...
