A quiet town in the hills of Cyprus. Here you can see spectacular views of southern Cyprus along with olive groves lining the mountain. Streets are small and fit only for motorbikes or very narrow cars. You can spend a day or two here wandering the streets, photographing colorful buildings and sitting in cafes.

Hidden away in the sharply rising hills of the lower Troodos is the lovely village of Lefkara. Famous for its lace, the stories tell us that even Leonardo da Vinci was taken in by its charms! A half day is all you need to wander its winding cobblestone streets and have a closer look at the numerous handicraft stores dotted throughout the town. Photographers will love the grapevines, terracotta tiles and friendly faces at every turn. For a great feed, drop by Tasties, it's one of the best restaurants we found in Cyprus!

Your Cyprus Holiday won’t be complete without a trip to a Cypriot Village for a taste of the real Cyprus. The mountainous village of Lefkara is split into Pano Lefkara and Kato Lefkara (higher and lower Lefkara), and is world-renowned for its traditional handicrafts of lace embroidery and filigree silver. There are many shops and some nice restaurants with fabulous scenic views for you to enjoy. The village is situated at the foot of the Troodos Mountains in the south eastern region, 650 m above sea level, around 30 km from Fig Tree Villa, and can be reached by following the A5, A1 and E105 route. It’s a little cooler up there, so bear that in mind if visiting this lovely village.

The women of the village are often sat outside their picturesque homes, creating the world-renowned ‘Lefkaritika’ lace pieces that have been made in the village since Venetian times and are on the UNESCO Intangible World Heritage List.

The village took its name from the lime stone rocks of the region (Lefka Ori – White Mounts – Lefkara). Its character is very picturesque with narrow, winding streets and traditional architecture of old, terracotta-roofed houses. Visitors can learn all about the lace and the village’s second craft of delicate filigree silver pieces at the Lefkara Handicraft Centre, the Museum of Traditional Embroidery and Silversmithing, and various workshops, where you can watch craftsmen at work.

The village also has beautiful and ancient chapels, including the church of Timios Stavros (Holy Cross), and the chapel of Archangelos Michail in Kato Lefkara, with frescoes that date from the 12th and 15th centuries.
Among the village’s other interesting sites are the Local Ethnological Museum of Traditional Embroidery and Silversmith-work the old fountain, the old olive mill and Oliva Terra – Ktima Sofokleous, where you can stroll through the olive tree orchards and learn all about the island’s ‘liquid gold’. The popular annual Lefkara Festival takes place each August, and includes a programme of music, dance, theatre and handicraft exhibitions, with visitors warmly welcomed. The village is also included as one of the stops on the island’s 7th Wine Route that encompasses the area of mountainous Larnaka – Lefkosia (Nicosia).
