Our journey will take us through quaint villages still holding on to their traditional life styles.
Our first stop will be at Kelokedara village. Experience an era gone by with a special ride in the authentic ‘Bedford’ Village Bus still in action today! Travelling along winding roads and picturesque orange groves, we make our way to the “Xeros” river valley & the Argonaftis Donkey farm where tender and loving care (shelter, veterinary attention & a healthy breeding program) is provided for our friendly Donkeys.
Upon arrival you will be given the warmest of welcomes. Sample village wine, local firewater ‘Zivania’ and try some local delicacies such as ‘Halloumi’ cheese, olives, ‘Sushukko’ (a sweet made of grape syrup and almonds) and local oven bread.
Meet the friendly Donkeys and enjoy a ride through the peaceful countryside before we arrive at the abandoned 14th Century Monastery, Panayia tou Sindi. It has recently been expertly restored by UNESCO and in 1997 this project was granted the prestigious EUROPA NOSTRA award and was recognised as a World Cultural Heritage monument. There we will try some seasonal fruits and enjoy the unique tranquillity of the hills.
Then it is back to the farm where a traditional BBQ meal accompanied by homemade specialities will be waiting for you with Wine, Zivania and Juice for the children.
When you have had your fill, join us for some Cypriot folk dancing and music.
You can participate in the not-to-be-missed ‘Syrtaki’ ritual and then dance the night away to our D.J.’s Greek and International music!
The whole ambience is exceptional & combines a meeting with the real Cyprus countryside, original hospitality, fun, adventure, good food & excellent entertainment.
