Surrounded by the tranquility of the countryside, this blissful purpose-built wedding venue is designed to cater for your ceremony, reception, dinner and dance – so there is no need to transport your guests from one venue to another, which means you can all just arrive (in style?

As for dining, the distinguished chefs at Liopetro can provide you with the best gourmet dishes and decadent deserts.

Dining and dancing at Liopetro are captivating too; this open-air venue indulges your night with a blanket of stars overhead, accompanied by uninterrupted views out to sea meaning that even though it’s still dark, you still feel the presence of the Mediterranean…especially if you’re lucky enough to have a full moon shimmering over the sea!

If you’re opting for an Orthodox ceremony, you even have the option of holding your destination wedding ceremony in the ancient church of Panagia Odigitria next to Liopetro. This church is from the 12th Century with frescoes saved from the 16th Century. Talk about historic.

We can promise that you will be enraptured and enchanted by the exquisite atmosphere at Liopetro. It truly is a Cypriot gem.

Cyprus is known as the Island of Love due to it being the birthplace of Aphrodite, the Greek Goddess of Love.  Aphrodite Hills Resort is a stones throw away from Aphrodite’s Rock where Aphrodite is said to have risen from the waves. What location could be more perfect to exchange wedding vows with the love of your life?

Villa weddings are a wonderful choice of venue for your big day in Cyprus; they offer you a flexibility that you may not necessarily find at other wedding venues, so if you are looking for an intimate venue where you can take control of the finer details then a villa wedding may be just for you.

And when it comes to villa venues in Cyprus, Villa Rio on Aphrodite Hills Resort is a stunningly beautiful choice. This is one of the most opulent villas on the resort and trust us, it brings the wow factor even before we’ve waved our magic wedding décor wand!
