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 more...green 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.
