As a family, we own a small Agrotourism complex consisting of 6 stone built suites.
It is addressed to the Cypriot and foreign market, usually Europeans. It’s a small hidden paradise in the middle of Psematismenos village in Larnaca disitrict. We run it ourselves, and we try to make our guests feel at home. We believe that hospitality is in the details. It is how you make your guests feel. It’s the personal touch.
We usually offer our guests a jar of homemade jam on their arrival; jams that we make at home with fresh seasonal fruit. Lately we decided that our guests should also leave Modus Vivendi with a small souvenir. Local herbs were an option; so to start with, I made these beautiful cotton fabric sachets and filled them with “Alouiza”, the Greek name for Lemon Verbena. You can drink lemon verbena as an infusion or you can just throw the sachet in your linen cupboard and give your bedsheets the subtle, “lemony” smell of “Alouiza”.
Of course you can make these with other herbs as well, like lavender, rosemary, thyme, sage….
Enjoy making them or come and visit us at Modus Vivendi Psematismenos and get one as a gift!
