WHAT IS…

YOUR FAVOURITE BEACH?

Lara Bay. It is just so quiet down there. I love to go and relax in such a natural environment.

YOUR FAVOURITE RESTAURANT?

Koutourou. This restaurant is just around the corner from where I live. The food there is excellent and the menu changes every day, so there is always something different.

YOUR FAVOURITE PLACE TO GO FOR A COFFEE?

Vintage Art House. This is not far from the courthouse in central Paphos. It is the perfect place to sit and relax in their garden on a day off. I work hard so want to relax in peace. The coffee there is great.

YOUR FAVOURITE PLACE FOR A COCKTAIL?

Oniro by the Sea at the Sea Caves. There is no other location like this. It is amazing sitting there overlooking the shipwreck and the whole place has a really cool vibe.

YOUR FAVOURITE WALK?

Around the Old Town. With our dogs, we often walk around the Old Town. It is changing all the time with new businesses, art and sculptures.

YOUR PERFECT DAY OFF?

My ideal would be to spend an undisturbed day with Alex and the dogs in our beautiful home.

YOUR FAVOURITE CHARITY?

Pasykaf. We have supported this charity through buying art from The Space Art for Charity. All the money goes to help cancer patients across the island. This is a cause very close to my heart.

YOUR FAVOURITE WINERY?

Vasilikon Winery. I only drink red wine and I particularly like the one from this winery. It is excellent.

YOUR FAVOURITE SPA?

Ayii Anargyri Natural Healing Spa Resort. We have visited a few times and really felt the benefits after our stay. The fact that it is not far from home, makes for a perfect weekend away.
