Cyprus Travel Guide - The Best Hotels in Cyprus

British Summer Time may often seem to be a contradictory term, but if you're in need of a sprinkling of sunshine while our own thermometers struggle to hit double digits, the island of Cyprus offers a year-round respite only 4 hours away by plane.

While the peak temperatures of July and August may be overpowering, Cyprus is an ideal destination for the spring and autumn.

Cypriots cite September and October as their preferred time with the water temperature just right for swimming, but a visit in April proved that spring on Cyprus offers beautiful weather, quiet streets and a chance to combine a horizontal holiday with visits to the country's historic and archaeological sights.

Anassa Hotel

Undoubtedly the grande dame of the island, Anassa has a majestic position on the shore of Asprokremnos Beach, one of Cyprus's most beautiful beaches.

The property was designed to resemble an ancient Byzantine village: white washed building with clay roof tiles and pretty duck egg blue doors and shutters are scattered around a stunning landscape with mesmerising views of the coastline.

Anassa features a total of 176 rooms, all of which have a balcony or terrace, many with private pools or Jacuzzis.

A spacious room with a large bathroom, sitting area and walk-in wardrobe, the highlight was sitting on the terrace with an aperitif watching the sun set behind the mountains while trying to hide the occasional longing glance at the private pool of the suite below.

Anassa's three restaurants mean that you could spend a week here without getting bored of the food, but we found ourselves at Basiliko on each night of our visit - the hotel's gourmet restaurant focuses on Asian flavours set in a stone cavern that feels hidden away from the rest of the hotel.

Iola Car Show to be featured on 'Discover Wisconsin' (with video)

IOLA — As preparations for the 41st annual Iola Old Car Show kick into high gear, the event will receive a boost from the nation’s longest-running tourism show.

The event will be featured on the Summer Travel Guide on “Discover Wisconsin,” which is expected to reach more than 250,000 viewers across the upper Great Lakes region, including Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Northern Illinois and Upper Michigan. The show will appear locally on WAOW Channel 9 at 2:30 p.m. Sunday and 4:30 p.m. June 16.

Mitchell Swenson, public relations and show marketing director, said the car show traditionally draws a large crowd, with about 111,000 in attendance last year.

“There’s an opportunity to reach people who have a passion for cars but might not know about us or have considered coming before,” Swenson said.

The show, with a theme this year of “Showdown in I-Town: Ford versus Chevy,” features the largest swap meet in the Midwest with 4,430 vendor sites. Swenson said all profits from the show — which totaled about $270,000 last year — go to support local organizations.

Swenson said the “Discover Wisconsin” segment will focus on, among other aspects, the history of the car show, which was started in 1972 by Chet Krause to promote his Old Cars magazine. Today, the event takes place on 300 acres, features 2,200 display cars and is run by a crew of about 3,000 volunteers.

Chad Diedrick, managing producer for “Discover Wisconsin,” said the segment was filmed during last year’s car show, which also was the event’s 40th anniversary.

“The only other event like this in Wisconsin that draws more people is EAA Airventure,” said Diedrick in a news release.

Joan Schultz, executive director for the car show, said that preparations are continuing, from getting the grounds ready to finishing a 40th anniversary book that will available for sale at the event. She said where they typically have 100 vendor sites available at this time, this year they have 300.

“What we’re seeing is that some of our older vendors are starting to come as spectators,” Schultz said. “It’s a lot of work to have a site, but these people don’t want to miss the show or seeing their buddies.”

Schultz said she expected a strong crowd for this year’s show after a drop in attendance last year.

“It was very hot all weekend last year, and I think that along with the cost of coming up here kept some people at home, so I think we’ll be fine,” Schultz said. Source
