Sunvil announces Troodos foodie tours

Specialist tour operator Sunvil has picked out a selection of local foodie festivals in Cyprus in September and October.

The wine villages of Vasa Koilaniou, Loufou, Arsos and Koilani will hold celebrations between 10 September and 1 October featuring palouzes – grape jellies flavoured with rose water and cinnamon – and shoushoukos – sweet treats with nuts and grapes, plus folk music and dancing.

In the village of Kyperounta, the third highest village on the island, a two-day apple festival takes place on 7-8 October. It includes an open-air market where one can sample and buy seasonal apples, traditional products, apple pies and apple vinegar. Festival activities also include print-making and photography exhibitions.

Miliou Honey Festival on 28/29 October will feature bee-keeping and honey-making demonstrations and workshops. Miliou is a spa village with natural springs, surrounded by citrus groves, almond trees and vineyards. It is known as a nesting place for nightingales and in autumn, bird migrations pass overhead.
