In Astromeritis (Αστρομερίτης)  I had some breakfast with Mr. Andreas who offered me shelter the other night. Mr Andreas has created a place for weddings, baptisms and conferences and for various events on the hill top of the area Pano Koutrafas. He named it Ktima Chrystilia / Κτήμα Χρυστίλια (after the names of his two loving daughters Chrystalla and Iliana). Chrystilia is a new venue for events such as engagement parties, weddings, baptisms, birthday etc. Their advertisement is in fb under this link : Ktima Chrystilia and below Mr. Andreas proudly standing before his beautiful place. Don't miss it if you need a venue that overlooks all of the Northern part of the island of Cyprus. Phone 99 683177. Email This email address is being protected from spambots.
