Hidden Cyprus Photography Holiday

Date: March 7-14th 2021

Duration: 7 nights (half board accommodation)

This a good find. Our hosts Cyprus Villages is a very friendly, family run company. They couldn’t do enough for their guests. Sofronios, the boss is always on hand to help and recently his son Andy – fresh from University in Bristol has joined the company. Combined with the dedicated staff it makes for a great team. You don’t even need to take adapters – they have UK 3 pin sockets! All the comforts of home with great hospitality, traditional cooking and sunshine. No travelling to Gatwick – we fly from Bristol  March is a perfect time for wild flowers and daytime temperatures are about 20C. The evenings can be chilly but Sofonios will light the fire in the taverna
