The island’s longstanding tradition of winemaking needs no further proof than its claim to the world’s oldest named wine still in production – that of Commandaria, proclaimed by Richard the Lionheart as the “wine of the kings and the king of the wines.” And whilst the same ancient grape varieties are still cultivated; and the same villages produce wine in the old, traditional ways; the island’s wine industry has also vastly modernised, progressed and expanded. Whether you’re a connoisseur or a simple lover of the drink that locals once worshipped as the ‘nectar of the Gods’, you will delight in discovering a host of charming wineries and wine growing regions along seven glorious wine routes.
The impressive Troodos Mountain range, with its idyllic forests, stretches across most of the western side of Cyprus offering a cool sanctuary in the summer and the opportunity for sports in the winter. At the top of the Troodos Mountains one can also find the only Skiing Centre in Cyprus. Here, one can take advantage of the pleasures of Winter Sports under the beautiful Mediterranean blue sky. Skiing can be enjoyed on the slopes of Mount Olympus (1951 metres a.s.l.), usually from the beginning of January until the end of March. Mount Olympus is only 2 km, from Troodos Mountain resort, 12 km from Platres mountain resort, and about an hour’s drive from the seaside town of Limassol and the Capital, Nicosia.
