Relax and indulge yourself in the beauty of Lavender, is our motto of this year for the Lavender Festival in Platres, which highlights the magic of Lavender the Queen of Herbs in all its glory.
Purely thematic, interactive and educational, the Lavender Festival has become a platform for the promotion of innovative products and Lavender producers from all over Cyprus, offering visitors an experience that covers all the senses, since lavender has so many properties that we can experience it in elite gastronomy experiences, as a means of relaxation, health and wellness but also as way of beauty for the skin, body and hair;
The English lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), which is found in Platres, is the most fragrant variety and produces the best essential oil, with antiseptic and healing properties is ideal for treating insomnia, headaches, depression, and reducing anxiety. Visitors will be able to see and smell the lavenders, which are now in full bloom.
On Sunday, July 2nd, the central square of Platres will be filled with the Lavender Market, with 25 producers and exhibitors from all over Cyprus, a joyful entertainment program, offering an experience of wellness, relaxation and gastronomy with lavender.
This year we are innovating with activities for children from 2 years old, with the collaboration of the University Kindergarten Lito, and with a new range of gastronomy and wellness products with lavender.
