The 15th August is in fact Assumption Day, the day Mary, mother of Christ, was taken up to heaven, body and soul, so she could be with her son Jesus forever ... it's preceded by 14 days of fasting, and of course all the churches in full flow! It's celebrated by a day of Feast, hence the reason you'll see all those huge queues at the butchers and smell those wonderful aromas of lamb on BBQ's everywhere.
Few people can resist this rich, warm, and faintly exotic spicy tipple as it signifies the start of the festive season, good will and all that.

This really is a lovely initiative by local, ex-pat and international artists and crafters from all over the world and a lovely way to spend a family day out doing a little shopping and bartering for Christmas and I really hope you'll go along to give them some support, especially this year ... See you there!!!

The location is wonderful, up in the hills, with absolutely stunning panoramic views overlooking the St. George coastline of Paphos. There's over 100,000 sq metres of lush green vegetation, ponds, flowers, and trees including the amazing Silk Floss Tree from South America, covered in thousands of spikes, it's just crazy !
As I arrived, my first impressions were it looked quite 'normal', a fairly plain frontage, edged in gorgeous natural stone walls, wonderful wooden shutters, but through the big antique wooden front doors and into the lounge and you're in another world ... making it obvious why its a favourite for wedding planners ...
