Cyprus is proud for the tradition and history of its wine-making. Cyprus was the wine supplier to the Pharaohs of Egypt, Ancient Greeks and the Romans.
The Cyprus Tourist Organisation has organised and designated several wine routes where visitors can see the vines and vineyards, admire the various natural landscapes, and enjoy the local production. In Paphos region, visitors can sample the local delicacies in villages, wineries, monasteries, and shop. Three of the most interesting wine routes in Paphos are the Kilada Diarizou wine route, Laona-Akamas wine route, and Vouni Panagias wine route. Piskopos Traditional Holiday Resorts situated in the right location if one is interesting to visit the following wine routes of Paphos region:

 

1. Kilada Diarizou Wine Route. 

Diarizos Koilada Wine route in PaphosA fascinating journey along the Diarizos river, through beautifully unspoiled verdant surroundings, decked with picturesque vineyards and attractive scenery. The Diarizos valley is the least known wine producing region in Cyprus. At a lower altitude than the other wine growing areas, and with the local Mavro grape variety predominant, it has for years kept away from the mainstream wine scene. However, with the creation of many small wine making units and the introduction of modern viticulture, the Diarizos region has been transformed into a competitive wine producing area of great promise. Get to know the region and enjoy its striking tranquillity, the genuine hospitality of the local people and the pleasurable delights of its expanding wine trade. Start Point: Acheleia.  End Point: Acheleia.

TESTIMONIALS

Sander, The Netherlands.

Getting away from it all! We really enjoyed our stay at this house. Pambos, the owner, did a great job in making us feel at home right from the start! The house itself is located at the end of a steep road, near the edge of a small village. The pictures just do not do it enough justice, when we arrived there were flowers everywhere. And besides completely unobstructed views, you will enjoy lots of privacy at the pool. And even though it feels miles away, Paphos is only 15 minutes by car. The interior has lots of traditional details. We had a great stay at the house! An excellent way to see the real Cyprus, without giving up any comfort.
