Polis, Cyprus villa & hotel accommodation
This has been the 3rd visit to this hotel. Definitely will return. A*. (more)Mike Biggs
Watching the sunset from the terrace of my room. Excellent view, great location., good local food. (more)Georgina Alexander
Excellent. A really relaxing break - I hope to make a return trip. Very encouraging to see a smaller-scale family hotel; well-organised, clean, comfortable, friendly and beautiful, with a positive impact on its local environment. (more)Judy Powell
From 70 - 115 per double room per night
Troodos Mountains accommodation, Cyprus
It was relaxing and pleasant, and even though Cyprus has and is continuing to change and develop, you can still get away on side roads and tracks and be away from the hustle of the beach resorts. (more)Keith Costelloe
It was lovely to be somewhere so peaceful after life in a city. I'll remember just sitting out in the courtyard under a full moon, drinking a glass of wine and listening to the sound of the crickets (more)Polly Westlake
A lovely stay. We hope to go back soon (more)Michael Moriarty
From 45 per apartment per night
Cyprus traditional villa accommodation
Memorable parts? Tochni was one of the most beautiful villages in the area. It suited us because it was very quiet. Renovating old buildings provides an immediate atmosphere to the holiday and is much better than staying in a new apartment. Tips? It is centrally located, but you still have to be prepared to travel if you want to make the most of the holiday. Local benefits? Yes it did benefit local people, and in the respect of renovating old buildings it did minimize the... (more)John Williams
From 60 - 100 per villa per night (sleeps 2)
Northern Cyprus walking holiday
Memorable parts? The day excursions; walking and visit to Famagusta. Tips? Try to avoid long wait on outbound journey at Istanbul. Local benefits? Benefited local people. Overall rating? Excellent. (more)Arthur Hancock
From 644 - 786 including UK flights
Walking holiday in Cyprus
North Cyprus is great; good walks, some interesting sights to see, the sea is warm enough to enjoy in early May and excellent food at low, or very reasonable prices. (more)Nora Kocsis
There were a number of highlights, but possibly the best was the fish banquet we enjoyed overlooking the harbour in Latchi. (more)Liz Rees
From 899 - 970 including UK flights
North Cyprus walking holiday
Memorable parts? The landscape - the mountains are breathtaking! We also saw goats in trees! Tips? Bring wipes, a roll of toilet paper and candy or alcohol to share (if you want to.) Local benefits? The trip employs local men and they always gave empty water jugs to the villagers. It would be nice if we could help with the litter issue in some of the remote areas... Overall rating? It was a memorable, challenging and fabulous trip. (more)Maria Falgoust
From 799 - 829 including UK flights
Cyprus self catering accommodation in Kalavassos
Travelling across the green line to visit Ancient Salamis. Kalavassos is a good base to see the island. (more)Shabna Harridge
Great weather; great scenery. (more)Sally Keohane
Enjoyable, interesting, you get to know the culture, the habits, the history of the place. (more)Zahal Levy
From 48 - 120 per apartment per night
Limassol self catering accommodation in Cyprus
Memorable parts? The tranquil position of our accommodation at Kontoyiannas House in Kalavasos. Set within a pleasant & friendly village in the valley and only minutes drive from one of the loveliest beaches we discovered in Cyprus. Tips? To make the most of the self-catering accommodation including the bbq since the variety of menus in the island's taverns & restaurants is generally very limited. Kontoyiannas House would also be great to rent for a group of families - using all... (more)Nicole Mouton
From 48 - 100 per apartment per night
Cyprus hotel accommodation in Lysos
Memorable parts? This is a wonderful hotel. It is a small hotel but run very efficiently and we most enjoyed our time there. There were always free loungers by the pool and although there were a number of guests we often had the pool to ourselves. It was the best pool I have used for a few years. The most memorable part of our stay were the evening meals which were buffet style but of excellent quality providing an opportunity to taste different dishes. Tips? Book half board if... (more)Linda Scott

The most memorable parts were Androula's excellent meals and hiking in the Troodos! (more)Linda Johnstone
From 75 per apartment per night
Villa accommodation in Cyprus, sleeps 6
Memorable parts? The accommodation was suberb and really suited our needs, eating meze at a small mountain restaurant has to be the highlight. Great value for money and wonderful atmosphere. Tips? Speak to the locals, great tips about hidden beauty spots not on usual tourist route. Local benefits? The holiday benefited local people as we accessed community for meals and shopping adding to their economy. Overall rating? We all had a great time and wished we could have... (more)Elaine O

Cyprus travel info

There is another side to Cyprus than the infamous Agia Napa resort that you can discover with responsibletravel.com! The people of Cyprus owe their individuality and warmth to the fact that they are the product of an amazingly colorful history. This sun drenched island has been at the crossroads of world events for centuries. Roman, Byzantine, Greek and British influences have all had a bearing on life in Cyprus.

Cyprus is an island of beauty and contrasts. Cool, pine-clad mountains are a complete scene-change after golden sun-kissed beaches; tranquil, timeless villages are in striking contrast to modern cosmopolitan towns; luxurious beachside hotels can be exchanged for large areas of natural, unspoilt countryside; yet in Cyprus all distances are easily manageable, mostly on modern roads and highways.

For the responsible traveller the restoration of traditional houses in Cyprus villages - often referred to as agrotourism - provides lovely and traditional places to stay which also benefits the local economy.
