Omodhos holidays are a dream for anyone looking for a scenic and chilled out holiday. Imagine a traditional village which has stood still in time. This is the perfect location for a truly get-away-from-it-all holiday.
The friendly inhabitants of Omodhos have been vine growers for centuries. Located in the Koumandaria region on the southern slopes of the Troodos range, you can sample some Koumandaria, a local sweet wine in the small wineries of nearby villages. Or perhaps learn the art of making homemade sweet Palouzes – a traditional delicacy of Cyprus grape jelly, great for dipping almonds in.
In the evenings the men will still meet over a drink in the local cafes, to enthusiastically chat about just about anything and pass the time with a game of backgammon or chess while the women sit outside their homes drinking coffee and embroidering beautiful needle lace, famous in this area. This is Omodhos, located in the district of Limassol, approximately eighteen miles from Limassol and fifteen miles from the nearest beach.
The large village square, surrounded by whitewashed stone houses and several tavernas and cafes is a welcome sight on arrival and an ideal place to gather and meet with the local inhabitants. The village of Omodhos itself has retained its original architectural character and the charming, narrow cobbled streets are perfectly picturesque and spotless. There are many charming little chapels located in and around the village, all with their own unique history, as well as two museums containing ancient and unique exhibits.
Have you considered Omodhos for your next holiday? A place to reflect and daydream and finally get your head into that book you’ve been meaning to read.
