Ecotourism accommodation

A branch of the local ‘Bank of Cyprus’ with currency exchange and ATM/cash withdrawal facilities is located in the centre of Pano Lefkara village.

There are two Supermarkets in the area. ‘KYPREOS’ supermarket is located in the centre of the village. ‘ALPHA-MEGA’ hypermarket is located in the road junction of Skarinou village with the major highway. We suggest that you visit ‘ALPHA-MEGA’ for a wider selection of items.

Traditional bakery
The bakery of Pano Lefkara is well known around the island for the high quality of the freshly made traditional bread. Usually the bakery sells directly to shops, but if you visit it they will sell you directly. This bread can also be found in the food shops in the village.

Traditional butcher
A butcher, whose meat is supplied only from local small scale farmers, can be found within short walking distance from our two rural houses, next to a local traditional coffee shop.

Traditional coffee shops
There are a number of traditional coffee shops “kafenia” around the village. The most authentic is the one next to the butchers, 3min walking distance SE of the houses. It can be found on your left hand side as you walk from Monadiko Rural House towards the Turkish Minaret.

There are many options for traditional food at Lefkara village, most within walking distance from Ample Places.

Shops in the village
Lefkara village is considered to be one of the most important ones in Cyprus, mainly known for its fine embroidered lace (“lefkaritika”), its handcrafted silverware filigree work (“trifourena”), as well as for its architecture. According to legend, Leonardo da Vinci visited the village in 1481, and purchased and brought back to Italy a “lefkaritiko” fine embroidered lace cloth for the main altar of Milan’s Cathedral church (Duomo di Milano).

There is a great number of shops in the village selling locally made lace and silverware. At lower prices there are available reproductions of lower quality and cost, manufactured in Asia. We recommend that you confirm the source of the goods, prior of purchasing them.
