The peaks of the rugged Troodos mountains have witnessed snowball fights galore over the past couple of weeks, with powdery white snow as far as the eye can see. Avid skiers and snowboarders have also been having a blast on the vibrant slopes, while less adventurous visitors are enjoying walks through the stunning surrounds. But once the legs tire and the chill factor kicks in, nothing beats a cosy little spot with a roaring fireplace to warm the body and calm the mind!

 

 

A cosy new wine bar named ‘1725’ now beckons visitors, right on Troodos Square and next to the well-known Troodos Hotel. Order your favourite hot drink or a warming glass of deep red wine, and grab a seat by the window to enjoy panoramic views across the dazzling landscape. The whole place boasts a rustic appeal with plenty of dark wood features – some tables have been made from wine barrels – and traditional stone walls adding to the charm. If all the fun in the snow has left you feeling hungry, tuck into a large platter to keep energy levels at a peak. If you’re planning on heading out on a romantic rendezvous, you can always take a seat at the bar, or sink into one of the comfy armchairs for moments of pure bliss.
