Lying at the gateway of three continents, this land is rich in myths and legends. Bathed by the azure waters of the Mediterranean, it's an idyllic patchwork of breathtaking mountains and lush, wildflower-carpeted valleys that on a luxury Cyprus holiday suddenly give way to secluded coves and inviting beaches.
Come and discover the enticing island of Aphrodite, enjoy the rich culture or take a step back in time with a visit to ancient Choirokoitia, one of the best preserved sites of early civilisations to be found in the eastern Mediterranean.
