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.
Today, prior to a Jewish wedding ceremony, it is the groom who ritually "veils the bride". This tradition goes back to the marriage of Jacob to Leah (the older sister) when he thought he was marrying Rachel (the younger sister) whom he loved.
