Christmas and New Year’s Eve must be celebrated in a very warm company! 

Sofia Luxury Residence is a warm house under the warm rays of the Cyprus sun. We are glad that our guests have decided to spend these winter holidays with us, in our first open winter in Cyprus. It is important for us to create a festive mood for you 24 hours a day. Therefore, we have prepared special rates and individual gifts for all guests in December, January and February.

At 7 am, the solemn service begins, at 10 am, festive processions, fairs and swims in the sea are held throughout the island. On the entire Mediterranean coast of Cyprus, the sacrament of the consecration of water is performed. 

If you are staying at Sofia Luxury Residence for the New Year’s Eve, do not miss the opportunity to stay until January 6 and see the ancient Cypriot tradition of celebrating Epiphany and Baptism. At 7 am, the solemn service begins, at 10 am, festive processions, fairs and swims in the sea are held throughout the island. On the entire Mediterranean coast of Cyprus, the sacrament of the consecration of water is performed. The local Bishop takes out a large cross from the Church and with the procession together with the congregation and everyone goes to the shore. Under the solemn hymns of the Church, the Bishop lowers the cross into the sea and with a special prayer consecrates the water. In January, the sea heats up to 17 degrees, and you can often see young people jumping into the water to quickly catch up with a cross thrown into the sea from the shore. It is believed that the man who takes the cross in his hands first, will receive a special blessing for the whole year. Be sure to try the Epiphany donuts "loukoumades". According to ancient Cypriot legends, the evil spirits "kallinkantsari" are most active 12 days from Christmas (December 25) to the day of Baptism. You need to toss the loukoumades on the roof, then the evil spirit will rush for a treat and will fail under the earth, where he belongs. We are waiting for you in Cyprus at Sofia Luxury Residence and thank you for choosing us! We wish you wonderful holidays!
