Pegia (Peyia) Apartment Rental Photos and Description
2 bedroom luxury ground floor apartment, 5 mins from beach
Just 30 minutes drive from Paphos airport, the Andriana Exclusive Resort is a luxury complex located in the lovely village of Peyia, only 5 minutes drive from the beaches, restaurants and nightlife of the Coral Bay area. The resort is comprised of well maintained privately owned apartments with attractive landscaping arranged at different levels around two swimming pools and has many communal facilities including sun loungers, outdoor hot tub, gym/games room, indoor jacuzzi, sauna, change areas, showers & W/Cs.
This ground-floor apartment has south-west facing views overlooking the pools and the gardens with a clear view of the sea in the distance. It has two verandas, one with patio furniture, ideal for shade during the day or relaxing in the evening. A private parking space is located adjacent to the apartment.
It is just a 5 minute walk away from supermarket, bakery, bank, pharmacy, restaurant bar and just 15 minutes walk from the restaurants and bars in the centre of Peyia.
Location: Peyia is an attractive village on the hillside overlooking the Coral Bay area. It has a range of dining options including the Peyia Tavern (great mezes), Costas (fantastic pork chops!), Sophies (whose theme nights include Indian and Chinese), Savvas Grill, as well as bars including the Brewery Bar, Grande Cafe etc. Philippo's grocery store sells just about everything you could need and the village still retains a bakery, butchers, chemist etc. From Peyia, it is easy to head back into Paphos to explore the sites there, to nip down to Coral Bay, explore the Akamas peninsula, or head over the hills to Latchi and Polis - or indeed up into the Troodos mountains.
Activities: There are a wide range of activities available. Coral Bay offers swimming at a Blue Flag beach, as well as water sports including banana boat, pedal boats, paragliding, waterskiing, wakeboarding, snorkelling, diving etc. Jet skis and motor boats can be also be rented. Numerous cruises are available from Paphos harbour catering for a wide audience.
For those with children, the Waterpark in Paphos or Bird and Animal park near Coral Bay are worth a day out. Our 2 year old enjoys simply playing in the sand on the beach!
For the more active, there are numerous walking trails in the hills above Peyia, in the Troodos mountains, or in the Akamas peninsula. A visit to the turtle hatchery on Lara's Beach makes for a very peaceful trip. Jeep or quad bike safaris are available for those who want more excitement.
History: For those interested in history, the Paphos area boasts many archeological sites and museums with several UNESCO world heritage sites. See Aphrodite's rock - the birthplace of Aphrodite - at sunset, the sanctuary of Aphrodite - a must see in ancient times - , the stunning mosaics in the house of Dionysos, house of Theseus and House of Aion in Kato Pahos, the Tombs of the Kings, the amazing and extensive ruins at Kourion, the Mycenean settlement at Maa Palaiokastro etc.
There are also numerous monasteries worthy of a visit including Agios Neofytos which is just a short drive away.

About Tim Hulse
My wife, Beverly and I live near Chester in the UK with our 5 year old son. Bev spent a couple of summers in Cyprus while at university and fell in love with the place and we were coming so often for holidays that buying an apartment just made sense. We try and get out as often as we can for a break, but also to keep an eye on the place.
Tim Hulse purchased this apartment in 2007
Why Tim Hulse chose Pegia (Peyia)
We didn't want a property in a busy tourist area but somewhere a little outside where it would be quieter and closer to a more traditional village where we could still experience something of the old Cyprus Peyia fits this bill, being close to the beaches, restaurants and night life of Coral Bay but just a little separated so you can get away from the bustle. You can also walk into Peyia to visit one of the traditional restaurants there.
What makes this apartment unique
Very quiet resort with good amenities - mostly owned by Brits who only visit a couple of times a year so you've almost got the place to yourself most of the time. Good access to Coral Bay, but also up the hill to Polis and inland if you want to explore.
