Luxury Limassol Holidays

Two sides to Cyprus

Limassol

The south-coast city of Limassol wears two different faces. On the one hand, you've got the old town, where you'll find a labyrinth of little streets lined with craft shops and traditional tavernas. At its heart is a medieval castle, where Richard the Lionheart is said to have married his beloved Queen Berengaria. On the other hand, there's the modern part of town, packed with chic boutiques, gourmet restaurants and late-night cocktail bars. Running along the coast is a paved promenade, which cuts a path between beaches and a raft of luxury hotels. The city is also a great springboard for exploring the nearby wine villages of the Troodos Mountains. If you're visiting in September, you might catch Limassol's famous wine festival, which celebrates the grape harvest.

A pedestrian pathway runs along the coastline from the centre of Limassol past the hotels lining the beachfront - great for an early morning or evening stroll.

Limassol has quite an upmarket feel to it, with trendy bars and restaurants. The marina has plenty of cafes, shops and bars - it's about 10 minutes' taxi ride from our hotels here.

When to go

Cyprus has Greek island-style summers that warm up quickly, with temperatures sticking in the low 20s around April and May. In the middle of summer, highs are well into the 30s, and you can still get away with great beach weather (in the slightly more comfortable 20s) around September and October. Cyprus doesn’t get particularly cold; things hover in the late teens throughout winter, with the odd rain shower.

Visa Information

Visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Cyprus.

Tipping

Most restaurants and hotel bills will include a 10% tip, so you don’t have to tip wait staff or bar staff. Even still, extra tips are always appreciated, especially if you received good service. Taxi drivers appreciate a tip; aim for about 10% of the fare.

Introduction to languages

The official languages of Cyprus are Turkish and Greek. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
