It might feel too early to think about Christmas yet in the blink of an eye, the island will fill with festive markets and the return of the popular Christmas villages. Starting from November 25, several rural villages around Cyprus will dress in red, white and green again as the Deputy Ministry of Tourism prepares an exciting winter agenda of happenings.

In the third edition of the Christmas villages, the roster this year will include Agros, Deryneia, Kalopanayiotis, Kyperounta, Lefkara, and Fikardou villages in addition to the Laiki Geitonia area of Nicosia.

As in previous years, the Christmas Villages will offer a series of arts and crafts workshops by local artists and makers, tours, performances and walks. The festivities will be on throughout the busy Christmas season, lasting until January 14.

Visitors will also be able to participate in handicraft, wine and gastronomy experiences while discovering the traditions and sights of each region.
