1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The views from the mountains across to the sea.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Prepare for all weather types if you go in March. It gets cold in the morning and evening.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Everything at the hotel felt local and authentic. The taxi drivers knew everyone. A man waited for us to finish our walk and kept the Church open for us. He made us refreshments.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

This holiday exceeded our expectations. The accommodation had character and throughout our stay we began to become very attached to the staff and were sad to say goodbye! Thank you for making us so welcome. The hotel catered for dietary requirements; there was no menu, the chef offered us options of authentic Cypress dishes prepared from local ingredients. Grapefruit at breakfast was from the garden. Taxi pick up and drop up to the walks was reliable. The drivers seemed to know all the locals. The instructions for the walks were mostly clear but the emergency phone provided was answered promptly if clarification of the right direction was needed. The tour operator checked in with us regularly and helped us organise any additional trips whilst we were there. The walks themselves were stunning and often ended with a cultural heritage site. We were treated as individuals and got to meet some great local people as well as visit places off the beaten track. Thank you for such a genuine experience.
