Holisticescapes is happy to welcome you to the most natural & scenic part of the Akamas Peninsula, a short 35 minute drive from main city of Paphos in the south of Cyprus. Here you will be able to explore places of interest, churches, traditional craft museums, wineries, cheese & olive oil factories & picturesque small villages dotted around the Akamas peninsula.
Plus see waterfalls, historic Baths of Aphrodite & you can always arrange to go further afield in a car hired locally to see the well known historical cities of Limassol (by the coast) & Nicosia (the inland capital of the island)
If you wish to just relax locally you can spend some of your time learning from the locals about the lives in this area going back to the last century, where working the land was one of the best ways to earn a living & protect the environment. For the more energetic - you hire a mountain bike with GPS & visit many places off the beaten track & talk to local resident mountain bike expert who can help you plan your outings, as well as hire you your bikes!

We can arrange to take you to visit permeable farms, meet the farmer & see his crop growing over a hillside facing the sea & taste how good his produce is first hand. He will be delighted to discuss how the farm came into being & how he is developing the land to host a huge range of produce.
You may also visit the local organic herb & produce gardens, where you will meet a local Naturopath - who has a whole host of interesting remedies, natural body & home products to take home. Plus she can arrange to give you a one to one consultation with follow-ups once you return home. There is a very nice coffee & delicious snacks shop on site to relax & take in the sprawling garden views.
