Lovely place for Cypriot arts, crafts, food and drink. Staff very friendly and helpful, explaining various techniques used by local artists. Breakable things are wrapped carefully in bubblewrap, so everything arrived safely home.

We stumbled upon The Place by accident but we're so glad we did. Full of beautiful, hand made, unique pieces. You can watch the produce being made by the local artists and everyone we spoke to was so friendly. Definitely worth a visit.
