Filokypros Activities are organised for small groups for cooking (Cyprus traditional dishes), painting lessons, olive picking (traditional way) and even art therapy at Eveleos Country House in Tochni. At the same time, guests can enjoy daily the freshly made breakfast and traditional dinner at the local Taverna of the village.
Our culinary lessons are relaxed, fun and hands-on. They take place in our common room at our Eveleos country house, with everyone working in a small group with a qualified chef. Cypriot food is simple but tasty and the recipes you’ll learn are ones you can bring home and create in your own kitchen with ingredients that can be found anywhere. You’ll learn new techniques and skills while creating recipes using fresh, seasonal ingredients and meet new people.
We propose an Art Therapy informed retreat at our premises, and we would offer the following:
Visual art workshops
Creative Movement workshops
Morning and evening meditation groups
Art Psychotherapy and Movement Psychotherapy 1-1 sessions
Reiki 1-1 sessions
Set in idyllic and unspoilt regions of Cyprus, guests have the opportunity to learn from experienced painting tutors. Cyprus is quite famous for its rich culture and stunning landscapes. It is the ideal location for painting activities. Take your time to scan the landscape for the perfect composition. Visit historic cities like Curium or visit the mountains.
Autumn is the ideal time to harvest the Olives. You can participate in this timeless activity with a local family. After 1 to 2 days of work, we drive our bags of olives to the olive press to produce our olive oil. The rest of the week, we will drive you by bus to explore the archaeological sites of Cyprus and some relaxation at our Eveleos pool.
