The Beauty of the Troodos Mountains

Nature & Outdoor Lovers
Tourists are generally well familiar with the beaches and the coastal resorts.
Many are unaware that there is a stunning inland with mountains, pine forests and waterfalls this area is a paradise for nature and outdoor lovers. For the beach lovers, the sun worshippers it is not an easy thing to do, leaving behind bars and nightlife but they will be rewarded if they drive up into the Troodos Mountains. It is out here you will get the taste of the real Cyprus.

In summer it is cool and many people find refuge up here in its beautiful little villages. Many of these picturesque villages retain the beauty of the past and the beauty of Cyprus village life. Cypriots love tradition and very often they drive to the mountains the year round to find some peace and relax.

In winter the Troodos mountains with the clear atmosphere, blue skies and crisp white snow is an ideal place not only to come and find some peace and relax, but it is a very popular destination for those who love winter sports and skiing.

On each trip I try to dig out some of the most beautiful gems of the Troodos range that I wish to share with you out here. I visit picturesque villages, meet people, and taste the Cypriot cuisine which I find irresistible.

Follow my guide and tips and I guarantee the most beautiful holidays on the island ever!

Picturesque Villages - Platres

Platres is the largest and most stylish mountain resort in the Limassol district. It is a popular place for excursionists who find refuge out here.

The beauty of the area was immortalised in a poem by Greek Nobel laureate George Seferis. He stated in one of his poets that the nightingales in Platres do not leave you sleep.

April is the month that nightingales show up out here.

The Wine Route Villages in the Pitsilia region

The region east of Mout Olympos known as Pitsilia includes 40 villages most of them nestled on the mountainside amidst vineyards, and orchards.

Many archaeological churches of rare beauty are scattered throughout the little villages of Troodos.

    I have been to the Village restaurant in Platres and it is indeed just as you describe it. Agis is a good guy and excellent cook. Good quality products too.
