    It's not, perhaps, as pretty now as it was when Lawrence Durrell lived there, but Bellapais still has some interesting and attractive areas (and superb views towards the coast and sea).

    There are small alleyways, and plants and flowers.....people living their ordinary lives.

    It's always worthwhile taking a bit of time to wander away from the main focus of a place. You get a little insight into what life may really be like for the people who live there.

    And you may also have the pleasure, as I did, of being able to watch butterflies on the flowers...in late December! :-)

    The reataurant is just across fromm the Abbey. The service was very good and the staff were friendly.

    Favorite Dish: We started with salad and bread followed by roast chicken leg potatoe and veg then we had a piece of cake for our desert.
    1 glass of wine, tea and coffee included with the meal.

Bellapais Abbey Off The Beaten Path

    Oranges....and lemons.

    by leics Written Dec 31, 2009

    If you are visiting when the citrus fruits are on the trees, do look closely at the tree just in fronmt of the entrance to the abbey church.

    Citrus are often grafted onto bitter orange hosts. If they are not properly looked after, they will revert.

    Look closely at the tree and, amongst the bitter oranges, you'll see lemons as well.

    An orange-and-lemon tree. :-)
