Although I have visited Cyprus many times over the last ten years, most of my trips have been in September when the intense sun and heat has burned the grass yellow and the flowers have long since died off. I managed to fit in a very short trip in May this year and got to see some of the gorgeous colourful flowers on show and spent a little bit of time exploring the village of Laneia, well known for both its winemaking and its floral displays.

It really is a charming village, very peaceful and quaint. Everywhere you go there are flowers and miniature museum rooms where you can get an insight into some of the history of the place. Laneia is said to be where Henry I (King of France) found new healthy vines after the French vines that produced champagne were destroyed by disease. It is said that vines from the house of Rousos in Laneia were used to replant Champagne vineyards so it's quite special. 

Our stay there was very short as we had a lot of other visits to make on the day so I'm hoping to go back and spend some time exploring. But in the meantime, please enjoy a few snapshots of this pretty little village.
