VENUE REVIEW BY BEZIIQUÉ DESTINATION WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS
VASILIAS NIKOKLIS INN, Cyprus.
The VASILIAS NIKOKLIS INN is one of our favourite venues to photograph our destination weddings in Cyprus. Truly Cypriot and full of warmth and charm. The venue stands alone and is private and intimate. Here is an overhead shot of this exclusive venue. You can see the gardens and the pool terrace. There is ample parking and beautiful gardens surrounding the venue.
The traditional family-run inn is set in a valley in the region of Diarizos in Paphos. It was once a khan, a place for people to rest and feed their animals and take a welcome break themselves in the Cyprus sun. Some things have barely changed and you will see goat herders still tending to their flock of goats and Cypriot women farming their olive trees by hand. There are many parts of Cyprus that retain this history and it is wonderful to see. The inn, near the village of Nikoklia, sits on a bend on the west bank of the Dhiarizos river with extensive views of the Troodos mountains and down to the sea.
The original building was given to the present owners of the inn, Tassos and Dora Konstantinou as a wedding present. It was a building with potential and they had a dream to make it into a wonderful taverna for people to enjoy again. It was a successful venture and the building was extended to look like it does today over a period of many years. It is now run by the new generations of the Konstatinous.
Enjoy the welcoming bar with its friendly staff and great choice of refreshments. The Vasilias is perfectly set up to accommodate great food and drinks for your wedding party.
There are dedicated rooms to get ready for the most wonderful day of your life. There are 8 bedrooms at the inn, all are ensuite and have tea and coffee facilities and most importantly of all for you and your wedding guest, air conditioning.
The staff at the venue are amazing, you feel like part of their family and there is nothing they will not do to make sure your special day goes like a dream. This truly is a perfect destination wedding venue.
The courtyard is intimate, pretty and shaded by grapevines and can be decorated any way you can dream of. The staff will help you to achieve the perfect look for your day. From rustic to sophisticated, the only thing stopping you is your imagination. They know some amazing florists, decoration suppliers or you can bring your own.
Here are some very pretty setups from the previous weddings we have photographed here to help fuel your imagination. Maria at Flowershop Aliki is one of the main in-house suppliers for Vasilias, she is truly wonderful at her job. We have chosen her for our own wedding.
You may even get to meet one of the two friendly house cats that reside at the inn.
As the sunsets, twinkling lights make the venue even more magical. There is a pool at Vasilias but it is fenced off and safe for your little ones, should they show no fear. You can have live music at the venue, below is a shot of Aimie Flack and her brother Brian.
So choose Vasilias Nikoklis Inn for a traditional, rustic destination wedding in Cyprus. You will fall in love with this venue and the staff, the way we have. It is romantic and full of charm and we highly recommend this place to anyone looking for something off the beaten track.
