If you happen to pass by the village of Phoini, ask to see Mr. Theofanis Pilavakis.
He is the owner of the Private Art museum, and he can show you his collection which I found very interesting and of course somebody who wants to buy something can do so at the museum. There are all sorts of different things on sale –mostly clay pots.

The village prides for its unique and extensive tradition in pottery with history going back into the centuries.
Locals also make wooden chairs, and there is a workshop in the village which produces –loukoumia (turkish delight).

Directions: It is in the Troodos range 44 kms north west of Limassol

      Big and fragile. Yes I know what you mean. They decorate gardens, or they have them in cellars to keep oil. We have 2 at the basement to keep our olive oil there, (sometimes our own produce -other times we buy) and we also have a small one in the garden.
