Master's holiday in Cyprus

Thursday 5th September 2024 - Tuesday 10th September 2024

Places on the holiday will be allocated in order of receipt and the cost depends on room allocation.  See below.

The Master has chosen the beautiful island of Cyprus for her holiday as Cyprus is part of her heritage and has selected the 4-star Mediterranean Beach Hotel in Limassol, a central location allowing less time on a coach for visits around the island.

The trip will include visits to Paphos, the occupied town of Morphou, the picturesque village of Omodhos and Lefkosia (Nicosia) the last divided capital city in Europe, where we will see all of the splendid sites in Nicosia and also enjoy a bespoke visit to the Presidential Palace. 

On the final evening we will be joined by the Cypriot High Commissioner for the UK as well as the Mayor of Morphou at dinner at the Artima Bistro in Old Limassol.  The restaurant is an elegant fine dining experience and is located close to the medieval castle. 

You will learn much of the island's history as well as seeing many of its breathtaking sites.  Although the itinerary is full, we have made sure there is also time to rest. 

A daily itinerary will be sent to those attending closer to the date of the holiday and more information is in the programme of events and 2024 Freemen Journal. 

The holiday is all inclusive, the only additional costs are flights and travel insurance.  The cost of the holiday depends on room allocation, see below.  If taking the recommended flights, perhaps using Avios points, then transfer from the airport to the hotel and the hotel to the airport are also included.
