Perfect for luxury family holidays, Cyprus is shrouded as much in intriguing myth and legend as it is covered with dazzling beaches, secluded coves and seas of wild flowers. There is certainly plenty to explore in Cyprus too, with ancient archaeological treasures dotted across the island and charming traditional villages that bask in the sunshine.
Lying south of Turkey in the Mediterranean, Cyprus offers some fabulous five-star hotels - the Anassa and the Almyra being our favourites - fine cuisine; plus, with its long warm summers, a luxury holiday in Cyprus is also a great option when other destinations in Europe are winding down.
HIGHLIGHTS OF CYPRUS
The Aphrodite baths. Legend has it that Aphrodite bathed in these natural pools, and we would recommend any visitor to Cyprus to follow her lead.
The snow-capped Troodos Mountains. Stretching along the western side of Cyprus, the peaks and valleys of the Troodos Mountains are dotted with Byzantine monasteries, ancient churches and traditional villages. They simply must be trekked.
Ancient Paphos. With fourth century tombs, the Paphos Fort and Roman mosaics still intact, Paphos offers its guests a fascinating journey back in time.
