Here at Lets No Regrets we understand how you might want to take a little souvenir with you, to embody a memory you have during your Larnaca holiday rental.  If shopping is more your thing and you need to indulge in a little retail therapy, here's our list of things to buy in Cyprus:

  • Pottery - try the famous Savva pottery near Paphos or visit Foini village in the Troodos mountains.
  • Lace - best place to see it being made is at Lefkara village near Larnaca or you can buy at many of the mountain villages like Omodhos near Platres.
  • Honey - get some runny honey mummy! 1kg of local honey is excellent value.
  • Hand woven rugs - a mountain village specialty. Try Neo Chorio near Latchi or Phyti near Polis to see rugs being made.
  • Sweet and sour pastries - like daktyla or khateyfi or the famous Flaounes !
  • Commanderia wine - sweet but famous! Not to my taste but if you like sweet port, then you will probably love it.
  • Olive oil - enjoy it wherever in Cyprus. If you have the chance, go pick some olives in October-December with the locals.
  • Olives - need we say ones marinated in dried coriander, olive oil, garlic and lemon juice are to die for.
  • Copper items of jewelry or kitchenware.
  • Religious icons - replicas are available everywhere but you can buy the real thing from monasteries.
  • Zivania - Cypriot fire water.
  • Cyprus coffee and a coffee pot for the stove.
  • An "I love Cyprus" T-shirt!
