ABOUT CYPRUS

Cyprus is the third largest island in the Mediterranean after Sardinia and Sicily. The island has a typical Mediterranean climate but its proximity the to South West Asia makes it makes it one of the hottest parts in mid-summer. The temperatures can reach as high as 104 degrees F / 40†C, particularly inland. Cyprus is also one the most sunny islands, with sunshine hours ranging from 6 in winter to 13 in midsummer.

Although Cyprus is known for its beaches and warm climate, the island has two main mountain masses. The highest, being the 'Trodos' mountains, where they peak at 6,400ft/1,970m and the other being ‘Beşparmak Mountains’ which peaks at 3360ft/1,024m. Trodos mountains are snow covered from mid-january through to mid-march. Lush pine forests also flourish in these areas due to the cooler and wetter climate where as Beşparmak mountains are home to the historic and picturesque St. Hilarion, Bufavento and Kantara Castles.

Cyprus is a modern country that effortlessly marries European culture with ancient enchantment. You will discover a compact world of alluring beaches and fragrant mountain peaks, vineyards studded with olive trees and ancient ruins that stir the imagination, citrus groves and old stone villages where sweet wine flows as freely as conversations at the local café.
