The village #CoffeeShop... Similar to the role of a pub, the simply furnished central #kafenio is the social heart of Cypriot villages. This is a place where you can meet your friends, and take part in a lively discussion over a leisurely coffee (whether traditional or iced), or beer, and while away the hours with games such as #tavli (backgammon) or cards.

Story behind the #BrandySour? Devised at the #ForestParkHotel #Platres in the late 1930s - the heyday of the new Bauhaus-styled hotel when the jet set and glitterati were regular guests. Amongst the patrons was #KingFarouk of Egypt who wanted to secretly indulge in a tipple whilst entertaining, so the barman created a drink to resemble #IcedTea! The recipe spread, becoming a favourite with residents and visitors alike. Today it is seen as THE #CyprusCocktail. Post: Nikki at…

#Dining in #PissouriBay - can you have too much choice? Before making a list, I hadn't realised quite how wide and varied the restaurant, café and taverna options are - all within a 5-minute walk of the villa... And there's even more choice on the doorstep if you include the eateries up the hill in #Pissouri village. The only difficulty, then, is choosing which to visit as inevitably you won't have time to try them all! Post: Nikki at www.pissouribay.com.
