A new book about Platres, Cyprus
We have included two articles on the website that refer to the Forest Park Hotel and the village of Platres, in the Troodos mountains in Cyprus, where Daphne du Maurier and her family stayed in 1936.
This week we have received information about a new book about the history of Platres and life there now. It is called Platres: A Royal Resort by Russian author Lyudmila Budanova. The book will be launched at the Forest Park Hotel on 21st August at 6pm and is published in Russian, Greek and English.
While the book references Daphne du Maurier, it is a book about the village and its surrounding area rather than about the notable people who have visited there.
Availability in the UK is uncertain at the moment. If I can clarify this, I will add details to this article.
The two articles on our website are:
