Enjoy Food Festivals in Cyprus with Sunvil

Sunvil is recommending an autumn stay in Cyprus for food lovers. The island offers distinctive cuisine and the villages in the Troodos Mountains are particularly proud of their local produce. Cyprus specialist Sunvil offers a wide choice of properties from which to enjoy the autumn festivals in 2017 - from small inns to stylish spa hotels.

For example, the wine villages of Vasa Koilaniou, Loufou, Arsos and Koilani celebrate the grape harvest between September 10 and October 1. The focus is on traditional sticky treats such as palouzes (grape jellies flavoured with rose water and cinnamon) and shoushoukos (nuts encased in the grapey goodness) with folk music and dancing.

In the village of Kyperounta, a two-day apple festival takes place on October 7-8. It includes an open-air market where visitors can sample and buy seasonal apples, traditional products, apple pies and apple vinegars. Leafy Kyperounta is the third highest village on the island and is renowned for its fruit trees and orchards, with the festival being a highlight in the village’s calendar. Festival activities usually cross into the cultural as well as culinary, with print-making and photography exhibitions featuring as part of the celebrations too.

During the Miliou Honey Festival on October 28-29, visitors can see how Cypriot farmers cherish their honey bee residents with bee-keeping and honey-making demonstrations, plus plenty of hands-on opportunities. Miliou is a spa village with natural springs, surrounded by citrus groves, almond trees and vineyards. It has far-reaching mountain and valley views and is known as a nesting place for nightingales. In autumn bird migrations pass overhead, making it a particularly evocative time to visit.

Bookings made before October 31 2017 for travel to the Troodos Mountains before the end of the year will also receive a £100 per person discount. With the discount, prices this autumn at the Linos Inn start at £590 per person (based on two sharing) for seven nights B&B, including flights from London and a week’s car hire.
