During Easter weekend, many Cypriots return to their ancestral villages to celebrate with family and friends. In this spirit, Annabelle is organising a day trip to two nearby villages. Our bus departs from the hotel at 10:30 and makes a forty-minute journey through the colourful countryside to Pano Panayia. We’ll stop for a visit at the Chrysorroyiatissa Monastery. The 18th-century building features delicate frescoes, a display of religious artefacts, and an icon of the Virgin Mary and Christ attributed to the apostle Luke. Next, the bus departs at 11:45 for the village of Lemona, where we’ll tour the Tsangarides Winery. The Tsangarides family follows an organic method of winemaking that goes back five generations. They feature local varieties such as the white Xynisteri and the red Maratheftiko grapes. After the tour, enjoy a tasting of their full range of wines along with a selection of cheeses and charcuterie. (€35 per person; book with Guest Services by 14 April at 18:00.) Annabelle and our sister property Almyra offer a full range of in-house activities for the Easter weekend; see HERE for the complete programme.
