Polixeni Tsangarides - Mum at the Orchard. Mum inherited the land from her father and dad made it into an orchard full of all kinds of fruit

Andreas Tsangarides -Dad actually helped dig the well.

He planted all the lovely trees that bear fruit, available for all our guests to enjoy! The whole plot was originally full of trees but the drought in the 90's meant we had to chop quite a few of them down. Still there is a lot of fruit available!

Kalavos Church

Old Minaret, Kalavasos had quite a few Turkish Cypriots before the 1974 invasion
