    • Itinery N+S Cyprus 2,5 weeks with kids

      Cyprus 3 hours ago

      Hi guys!

      Could I please check with you if my planned itinery makes sense?

      We are travelling with 2 kids (1x toddler of 2 and 1x baby of *just* 1). Goal for the trip is to recover a bit after a few hectic years with the kids (broken nights and so), so we would like to have some time to relax (sun, beach). However, we wish to see some of Cyprus as well. We wish to start slow, so we booked a holiday village (resort) in Paphos for the first week (something we never did before, we are used to hostels...). Due to the kids, we wish not to change accommodation too often (preferably max. 4 times or so). We have a rental-car for the whole trip.

      My questions:
      Does the itinery below seem logical?
      Does it make sense to rent another car in the North for what we plan to do?
      Is Kyrenia a good place to stay to explore the North?
      Are we too long in the Paphos / Polis area? Should we stay longer in the East instead?

      Day 1: Arrive Paphos, check into resort. Night: resort Paphos.
      Day 2: Chill (at resort + beach). Night: resort Paphos.
      Day 3: Chill (at resort + beach). Night: resort Paphos.
      Day 4: Chill (at resort + beach). Night: resort Paphos.
      Day 5: Day-trip Paphos. Night: resort Paphos.
      Day 6: Day-trip Paphos area / coast above Paphos. Night: resort Paphos.
      Day 7: Day-trip Paphos area / coast above Paphos. Night: resort Paphos.
      Day 8: Check out, drive to Polis area. Night: Polis.
      Day 9: Polis (beach / drive along coast West and East of Polis). Night: Polis.
      Day 10: Check out, drive to Nicosia. Park car, rent another one in the North, arrive at Kyrenia. Night: Kyrenia.
      Day 11: Explore villages in the area. Night: Kyrenia.
      Day 12: Chill (at hotel and beach). Night: Kyrenia.
      Day 13: Daytrip to Famagusta. Night: Kyrenia.
      Day 14: Drive back to Nicosia, change rental car, continue to Kalavasos. Found an amazing B&B there.
      Day 15: Chill (at B&B). Night: Kalavasos.
      Day 16:Governor's Beach. Night: Kalavasos.
      Day 17: Day-trip to Lanarca. Night: Kalavasos.
      Day 18: Day-trip to Troodos Nat. Park. Night: Kalavasos.
      Day 19: Spare day. Night: Kalavasos.
      Day 20: Depart in the morning (from Paphos).

      Thanks guys!!


    • Taking a rental car from South to North - contract disallows it

      Cyprus 22 hours ago


      I am planning a 2,5 week trip to Cyprus in April, and noticed that almost no car rental company will allow to take the car into the North, not even the larger Avis/Hertz/Europcar ones. I only found one (after I checked around 20!!), and that one was really expensive and seemed dodgy.

      As I have to buy insurance at the border anyways, what would happen if I were to take the car into the North?

      Reason for me not to higher a "second car" for the North period (however silly this sounds), is that I am planning to enter in the far West (coming from Polis), and planning to go back to the South in Nicosia.

      Thanks for the advise whether I could risk being a little naughty or should REALLY stick to the contract.

      Wine Appreciation in Cyprus

      by luckybluesman Online Now Feb 22, 2009 at 3:29 AM


      My name is Lee. My wife and some friends will visit your lovely island country on Sunday December 6, 2009. Like so many who visit your country we will be arriving by ship in Limassol and only be there about 7 hours.

      I love wine! That is why I am so excited about our visit. Cypriots have been producing the wonderful Commanderia wine since 800 BC, maybe longer. I lived 50 years of my 62 in California and grew up appreciating the blessing of wine. I will hire Cyprus Chaufeur for 4 hours to take us to some of the important wine related places near Limassol.

      I have been in contact with Sophocles Vlassides and I am waiting for a reply to see if he can schedule a visit with us while we are there. I am having trouble finding his village on a map. Do you know where his family vineyard is located and how long it will take to drive there from Limassol?

      We are also very interested in visiting one of the 14 villages which produce Commanderia wine. This would mean a trip to the Troodos mountains. If we drive to Domaine Vlassides and meet with Sophocles for an hour will we still have time to get to the Comanderia region, visit a winery and make it back to the wine museum in 4 hours?

      I also wonder if we should expect to pay for our wine tastings at the wineries? In Napa Valley, Calif. we often can taste some wine for free and have to pay to taste "the good stuff", while in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains the tastings are almost always free. There is wine for sale at the wineries but you do not "have" to buy them. Can you explain the customs on Cyprus?

      I thank you in advance for any help you can give me. Lee

      We were then thinking of using Karatello restaurant (in the carob mill complex) for the reception as it seems a beautiful location. I notice they have a large function room next to the main restaurant. Has anyone seen a wedding reception there or does anyone know if this is possible ?
