Autumn is a very important season of the year on Cyprus. It is the time of the olive and other harvests. As in most other Mediterranean countries, the olive plays a significant role in the lives of the people here on the Island, as does the harvest season in general. And, while olives are but one small part of the worldly diet, they are an important one.
Cyprus enjoys an enviable worldwide reputation as a sun and sea holiday destination. Sunshine year-round, azure skies, tepid waters, the Island is a legendary paradise. But, away from the tourist areas, the Cyprus countryside has a diverse wealth of its own, the traditional villages, vineyards and wineries not so many touristy websites inform us about. Those tiny fresco- painted churches, remote monasteries, and cool shady forests you’ve yet to discover.
