Visitors can choose to while away the day exploring Bellapais village with its small lanes and narrow streets, filled many fine and inexpensive cafes and bistros dotted amongst the whitewashed buildings. Or just soak up the relaxed and laid back atmosphere under the ‘Tree of Idleness’ an ancient mulberry made famous in “Bitter Lemons”. However, according to legend whoever sits under this tree becomes lethargic and content and be unwilling to work ever again.
Direct Traveller provides a choice of fantastic quality accommodation in Bellapais. The Abbey Inn for starters is a wonderful little boutique hotel that visitors would absolutely fall in love with. The Residence at Bellapaix is another small good quality hotel, and then there is Bellapais Gardens offering very comfortable accommodation with an amazing cliff-top restaurant.
