Located in the heart of the Cyprus wine region, Omodos is a richly fruitful village where many traditional Cypriot products – from Zivania and wine, to soujoukos and palouze – are made locally and can be found in the many charming little shops that line the narrow cobbled streets. Explore the village and you’ll also meet the ladies of the area who are passionate about their handmade lace, while visitors from near and far flock to the area to visit the ‘Timios Stavros’ Monastery.
Now, there’s yet another reason to visit the gorgeous village, especially if you’re a foodie! Once you’ve enjoyed a walk through the area’s cobbled lanes, take a seat at the newly opened Arekadena Fotini Bakery House; a fabulous bakery and brunch spot, serving delicious platters every Saturday and Sunday. All about morning and midday indulgences with a traditional twist, you can tuck into bakery treats and rusks served with marmalades, local halloumi cheese, eggs, smoked meats and more. Wash it all down with a delicious Cyprus coffee and you’ll be set for the day!
