Qgardens a garden heaven on Cyprus

Hello everybody,

I discovered this garden just accidental and I enjoy it with all my soul. I love gardens and having a walk trough the plants. I like to see art made by man’s hand where you would believe that nature just finished its master piece. Qgardens are first about art of gardening and for us is the pleasure to go and first of all feel it with all our hearts.

As soon as you see the entrance you will be pleasantly surprised by the gorgeous trees welcome each one on the side of the gates. The paved path way trough the gardens do not let you wait to long. You just need to rush to be inside and see everything.

I can say is that is a very organized garden with lots of plants, trees, nice paths for you to enjoy a charming walk. It’s more like a botanic garden. I would expect that somebody to rush and ask some money for the entrance but the entrance is free.

It is truly an experience, a beauty for your eyes to admire the plants and the gardener work with them, a mixture of colors and finally what could man do together with nature.

It is surprising that after seeing the entire park the owners thought to have there a mini zoo with fishes, rosters and chickens, poney and goats, a playground and mini coffee shop. All of them very well maintained offering you a real pleasure to go, to stay to make thoughts disappear.

Like ships that have gone down at sea, when heaven was all tranquility. Like boats resting in the sunset light when sky was all stillness. Breathe…

“I sit high in this tree
In complete tranquility

This bed of ropes
I tied with hopes
That I could find
A state of mind
In this tree
Of tranquility

My frustrated soul
Searching for its goal
Climbing the ropes oh life
Past the knots of strife
In this tree
Of tranquility

I sit here now
Sweat on my brow
Looking into the sky
This is how I fly
In this tree
Of tranquility”
Jake Gassiot

Lots of sunny days for Izzy the Cypriot Lizard!

Galactica Playland – The complete experience

Hello everybody,

I was so surprised to find out that Galactica Limassol Playland is the only, kids place that introduced a special healthy menu at their restaurant. Galactica is the only playground in Limassol offering the biggest no of activities for kids with different ages and the only private birthday party location, at Aqua Land play area.

I was impressed to see the special menu for the healthy food, where I could choose starting from vegetables to steamed rice, fresh squeezed juices and much more. Indeed they have the largest food selection, sweets, patisserie, and drinks and it takes a while, to read their three menus.

It is the only playground in Cyprus, where you can find milk for babies, a breastfeeding room and a changing room for the little ones, which make parents life, with two or more kids, much easier.  There is no rush to leave the playground as they have the longest opening hours in Limassol.

Beside all this, their birthday parties offers, are so varied, offering ideas no matter which is your child age, private space and lots and lots of fun activities. 

Outdoor and indoor their ground floor of the three story building there is the adventure park (Luna Park) for the little and bigger kids with lots of rides, a nice and happy caterpillar, a train, bumper cars, riding cars and swing boat.

The indoor playground has a very nice area for toddlers with balls and pushing toys. For bigger kids there is a nice course for running, jumping and climbing, trampolines, slides, mini football area with soft ball and a big bouncy slide. Lots of energy, to loose here! This is a place, where you can relax, as it was built to create the facility to follow your kids just from your chair at the table and definitely you have a large variety of drinks to enjoy it.

There are two bowling facilities where you can decide to have an active birthday party starting even for 5 years old children.

At the ground floor you can enjoy their very good food choices, at the restaurant with the coffee shop and patisserie, an internet café and other video games.
The main attraction is of course the new opened, Galactica Patisserie with a very elegant space offering Galactica specialties 3D birthday cakes, christening and wedding packages and lots of amazing sweets and pastries. All sweets are prepared with the best ingredients and high standards of a French Patisserie. This lovable, luxurious place bring lots of memorable moments for the entire family and a good reward after a day spent in the playground.

Galactica PlayLand the best place to spend an active day, getting out of your daily routine!  

Lots of kisses from Izzy the Cypriot Lizard!

Aqualand Private Party 


Kalavasos the only train, one experience, one escape

Hello everybody,

Kalavasos is a small village that can be found almost in the middle of Limassol - Nicosia/Larnaca highway (32km from Limassol) where you can see on your left side the Kalavasos tenta. The exit towards Kalavasos village will bring you to the village, tenta and the very nice dam and shaded playground.

As you enter in the village there is a parking and next to it is the playground surrounded by high trees. Our kids were just waiting for such a stop after quite some time spent driving over here. So here we are slides, swings, see sour, nice to see you again. The breeze surrounded us and gave us the pleasure to feel free again. Running, laughing and smiling is what we like to see on their small faces no matter how tired sometimes we feel: this is our paradise.

The main reason that brought us to Kalavasos was the only train in Cyprus which is a mining train that could be seen exactly from the playground. It is left on a small bridge which makes it look like a small treasure of Cyprus.

Living the playground you could see the signs that bring you to the Kalavasos Tenta. Together with Choirokoitia, Kalavasos-Tenta provides evidence for the initial establishment, at the end of the 7th millennium B.C., of sedentary communities on the island, who originated from the neighboring mainland. These communities developed an original civilization: the Cypriote Ceramic Neolithic.

We choose to pass the village and to see a beautiful sunset over the dam. The sun was already dying today. And there were only us, the stone lake, the lonely road and the crying mountains.

Returning in the village you could be surprised that people are there moving, smiling, living their peaceful lives. This is Cyprus.
