Vasilias Nikoklis :-
Situated on the edge of the village of Nikokleia, is the charming Vasilias Nikoklis Inn. This small family owned and run hotel, located six kilometers inland from Pafos International Airport and twenty minutes drive from the town of Pafos was previously an ancient khan, a place for travelers to rest and feed both themselves and their animals. The Inn stands on a bend on the west bank of the Dhiarizos river with views up the valley to the Troodos mountains and down the valley to the sea. Hemmed in by lemon and olive groves, it is profusion of plants of every hue, from bougainvillea to fig trees and cool, grape covered dining terraces.
Rings were used as currency in the Middle East prior to the advent of coinage and were a sign of a persons wealth. In ancient times the wedding ring was thought to protected the bride from "evil spirits". Ancient Roman wedding rings were made of iron. In early Rome a gold band came to symbolize everlasting love and commitment in marriage. Roman wedding rings were carved with two clasped hands. Very early rings had a carved key through which a woman was thought to be able to open her husband's heart.
