Bask in spring sunshine and enjoy Cyprus’s cultural and religious celebrations with our special ‘4 nights Easter package’ at Limassol’s unique, contemporary Londa Hotel.
Cyprus’s uber-cool, contemporary Londa Hotel, based in the vibrant coastal resort of Limassol, is offering an exceptional ‘4 nights Easter package’ that combines its inimitable award-winning chic and exemplary service with the perfect cultural getaway.
At this time of renewal, you will find the Cyprus countryside and rustic villages bursting into colourful life with rare and exotic flaura and fauna; medieval mountain churches and byzantine monasteries will be displaying icons adorned with blossoms and Good Friday’s processional epitaphs bedecked with spring flowers; be prepared for the fireworks that signal the start of celebrations after midnight mass on Easter Sunday; experience the traditional Cypriot customs of cracking hard boiled red and blue dyed eggs, sharing warm cheese pastries (flaounes), and feasting on spit-roasted lamb, just a little flavour of the cultural events that are Easter in Cyprus.
The island offers a wealth of historic and classical sites of antiquity, many just a few minutes drive from the Londa Hotel itself; Limassol castle, where Richard the Lionheart married Queen Berengaria of Nevarre in 1193 is one example; others are the ancient Temple of Amathounta or the Greco-Roman Kourion Amphitheatre. Of course, for more contemporary activities Limassol’s modern shopping malls and designer boutiques offer an alternative form of relaxation!
The religious festival of Easter is the highlight of the Greek Orthodox calendar and celebrations in Cyprus are always a stunning spectacle for visitors; together with the assured spring sunshine, warm Mediterranean Sea and legendary Cypriot hospitality, a 4 night break in this Italian, designer styled property will leave you inspired and uplifted.
