The culinary side has been led in Caprice for the past 6 years by the local chef Stella Apogeti and is perhaps most responsible for the high score that the hotel has consistently received since its opening. Stella, a chef by grace, was born in the village of Neo Hourio in the mountains above the hotel and started her journey in the kitchen more than 30 years ago. In recent years, at Caprice, she has specialized in kosher cooking and combines Israeli cuisine with Cypriot charm and creates delicacies that are praised by every guest. She prepares homely food, very tasty and unsophisticated and she is attentive and available for any request from the guests. Throughout the holiday you will get to eat from local classic dishes such as the "Kleftiko" stew (a long-cooked local lamb stew) to Haryme or Yemenite soup and even hamin, gafflita-fish and kneidelach.

Day trip to Paphos
We will leave the hotel on our way to Paphos and stop atthe village of Katyx located about half way between the city of Paphos and Polis. The village has famous traditional taverns and vineyards and has a long history. What a village you can see in spectacular landscapes such as "Coral Bay Bay", the Ekamas, the Troodos mountain range and the Paphos Forest. From there we will continueto CoralBay Coral Bay Beach. A coral bay with golden sand and enchanting scenery withone of the most beautiful beaches in the area. From there we will set out to see a spectacular sight, the shipwreck on the shore at Piaia. This is an Albanian ship that got stuck on a wreck years ago and has been standing in the bay ever since. Upright, proud, as if she were just about to set sail, the shipwreck "Adero 3" has stood on the shore since 2011, when it ran aground there. At "Oniro by the Sea" you can indulge in a cold beer, ice cream or a cup of coffee, with the pleasant beach and the ship in front of you. Right next to us we will see the wonderful "Sea Caves" of Paphos. These caves are a familiar natural phenomenon when the rock wears out from the force of the sea waves. The caves were created over millions of years as the sea gnawed at the limestone rock on the coast and over time created caves of various sizes and even tiny islands, which look like a landscape painting created by nature. We will see antiquities in the "Tombs of the Kings" andvisitKato Paphos, the lower city of Paphos. Today it is home to most of the ancient and intriguing sites of Paphos. We will see the mythological mosaicsthat are considered to be among the most beautiful and preserved in the Mediterranean region. Finally, we will stop for shopping at the "Avenue of Kings" mall, where, among other things, the "Jumbo" store is located.
Aphrodite's Rock, Omodos and the Troodos Mountains
We will startat the Aphrodite Rock in the Paphos district and is one of the most photographed and identified places with Cyprus in general and Paphos in particular. The place is actually a rock rising out of the water when in this place, according to Greek mythology, Aphrodite, the goddess of love, rose from the foam of the sea. Instead you will be impressed by the rock and the brave ones can try to climb it (not recommended) or swim around it and thus gain longevity. Legend has it that every swim around the rock should be a year less than the biological age, so be aware that you're not doing any more laps right away. From there we will continue to the village of Omodos. Omodos is one of the most recognized villages in Cyprus, the village is about an hour's drive from Paphos towards the Troodos Mountains. This small and touristic village isfamous for the local wines, the zivania drinkandthe lace works of the village women. This village is one of the most colorful villages in Cyprus. Despite its relatively small size, many interesting sites can be found here – ancient stone houses, the monastery "Timius Stavros", local wineries and even a number of museums such as the Lace Museum, the Ecclesiastical Treasury Museum, the Museum of Struggle and more. We will end the trip with a hike in the Troodos Mountains.
Trips to Akamas Bay
Let's start at the baths of Aphrodite. A lovely waterfall on the out skirts of the Akamas Reserve (Cyprus' largest nature reserve). According to Greek mythology, Aphrodite used to bathe in this place the goddess of love and beauty. Adjacent to the mikveh youwill findwalking paths, observation points with an amazing panoramic view of the bayand a botanical garden. From there we will continue and stopat the village of Steni Steni. The village is home to the "Museum of Village Life". This is a nice museum that deals with village life in the area in the periods from1800to1945. There are activities related to past village life that may also be of interestto the children who come to the place. Here you will be impressed by agricultural items and ancient kitchenware, scenes of weaving and plowing, handicrafts, traditional clothes, andan admire of the old children's toy corner. From there we will continue to the village of Argaka and the bravecan leap from the pier to the sea or enjoy the beautiful promenade there.

These sea treksarea walk into the heart of the holy of holies of environmentalists and nature lovers in Cyprus. Here you can "sail" among the natural wonders of theAkmas National Park. These routes will takeyouup the mountain to one of the most amazing viewpoints in Akamas, from where you can look out all the way to the Blue Lagoon.
Those of you who are not trekkers will have more fun on the "Smigas" route, which is an easier and shorter route. A circular trail that offers an amazing vantage point and magical areas for picnics and photos.
Attractions at an additional cost
One of the most fun and beautiful hikes is an ATV ride in the Akamas reserve. The reserve has dozens of dedicated trails for off-road riding in sea ATVs and breathtaking views.

The zoo is on the slopes of one of the hills, a 25-minute drive from Paphos town to the northwest. This is a beautiful natural place immersed in green and home to a wide variety of wildlife that excites both young and old. One of the attractions inside the zoo is the bird show where parrots and owls are within easy reach of the kids and do stunts over their heads.
Paphos Zoo is not a big zoo but it is very well maintained and walking around it feels like walking around the Cyprus countryside rather than a zoo. There are several trails within the zoo and occasionally stopping points for resting, or eating. There is also a lovely littlesouvenir shopwhen you step out of the garden.

We don't have an answer either.

Letter from the owner
I am excited to invite you to celebrate Passover 2023 with us.
This will be the fifth Passover we are having at the hotel since the opening and it is the most exciting time of the year for me.
Our hotel is a small hotel and on Passover when the hotel is full there are about 150 guests. Good Jews from Israel but also from France and England. Passover with us is intimate and homely and I feel a personal responsibility for each and every guest.
This year we have prepared for you a rich program according to the best tradition of Caprice. Trips every day and entertainment every evening. And of course, our Stella will prepare for you the most delicious kosher food in the world.
Our veteran team is already looking forward to seeing you, we promise that there will always be a Hebrew-speaking staff member at your service and beyond that me, my wife and my two sons are doing and will do everything we can and more to ensure you enjoy every moment. My son Nir will close your vacation by phone and I humbly say that you will not find a better service person than him. My son Tal will meet and host you at the hotel together with me and my wife. In Caprice it's all about personal and family attention throughout.
Over the years, we have received exceptional feedback from our customers, but let me take this opportunity to pay back to hundreds of families of Jews from all over the world who visited the hotel. We got to know amazing people and amazing families of all kinds and genders that Judaism connects them all. Being the owner of a kosher hotel abroad is a great privilege and I thank you for that.
In conclusion, I would like to thank my devoted partner, Rabbi Nehemiah Rotenberg, who gives the kashrut to the hotel. Nehemiah does days and nights to ensure that the kashrut in the hotel is at the highest level and there is nothing more important than that in my opinion.
I'd love to see you
Owner, Hotel Caprice in Cyprus
