RELAXING AT A MOUNTAIN ESCAPE
Enjoy the stillness, silence and serenity
The highland region of Cyprus offer the ideal escape from the summer heat in the rest of Cyprus, or busy city and working life. A mountain village, where time has a completely different meaning, and where nature truly takes over.
No better way to unwind than to retreat. And retreat up into the mountains.
Farmakas and the wider Troodos mountain region of Cyprus offer ideal climatic conditions, geography and general environment for taking some time to relax. From more refreshing summer seasons in Cyprus, blooming spring times, adventurous autumn days, to cosy snowy winters.
Take in some nature, history, culture, adventure, or simply some time to yourselves to soak in the clean air, vast nature, and slow pace of life. This is Farmakas living every day.
Some relaxing activities might include:
– Easy going walks or cycles through nature
– Bird watching
– Historical and cultural sites
– Religious and spiritual
– Yoga and meditation
– Local gardening and agricultural
– Art and craft; with locals or on your own (writing, painting, photography)
– Sitting at a cafe and meeting locals
– Touring the wineries and of course drinking the wine,
– and even working (yeap!). Taking some time away from the office to go up to the mountains and work can be a great way to work at your own pace and be creatively inspired.
Overall, mountain type of relaxation can also be considered as recuperation, or even rehabilitation. Many doctors might advise of slow, calm recovery, with plenty of relaxation time, nice climate and healthy diet for healing better, as well as other suggested activities by your doctors. Mountain village lifestyle such as in Farmakas can indeed offer this environment. Furthermore, Cyprus is also growing in reputation as a medical tourism destination, as it is widely considered to offer the ideal rehabilitation setting, together with advance medical facilities and services.
Of course you must always consult your doctor about what surroundings are practices are ideal for your particular condition, and then compare and see.
But of course the best medicine is preventive medicine. So do try to take some time from busy, more unhealthy routine living in the city, to enjoy nature, peace, and relaxation. Your body and mind will thank you for it for many years to come!
