The Perfect Place for a Honeymoon in Cyprus

Cyprus Honeymoon

Cyprus is the perfect place to honeymoon, but for those wanting a little extra luck from their honeymoon; Kakopetria is the perfect village to visit in Cyprus. According to legend a line of stones above the village is good luck for newlyweds. Some of the luck ran out though, and during an earthquake stones of the ridge killed a couple. We still like to think it has brought luck to many a happy couple. Plus, Earthquakes are a very rare occurrence in Cyprus.

The town is located outside of Nicosia near the Troodoos Mountains. Astounding views of the mountains can take in from any point in the village. The Karyiotis River calmly flows through the village to add to the astounding beauty of this small Cyprus village. The village is quite popular with the tourists, so if you want a really quiet vacation you may want to try going off peak season.

While you are in the village there a plenty of little tavernas to try out for meze and vino. You can visit the ancient church the Agios Nikolaos tis Stegis church. The inside of the church holds really old frescoes along with vibrantly colored interior. No photos are allowed inside, and you probably should dress modestly to visit. You can also try exploring the nearby Troodoos Mountains which have countless trails to hike and explore.

For lodging we highly recommend the Marjay Inn. It is off the main road in Kakpetria, so you can really get a good night sleep here. The rooms are very comfortable with balconies and patios facing the picturesque back garden. Make sure to eat here at least once. Ask the inn owner, Eleni, to make you the trout if available. I have never tasted a trout so divinely flavored as the one Eleni makes.
