Ampelohori is a small self-contained select holiday village offering peace and tranquillity, the ideal spot to totally wind down from the pressures of modern day living. It has stunning views of the surrounding countryside, an uncrowded local beach and friendly, laid-back local folk. The seawater is clear, clean and safe (EU Blue Flag Award). There are two 18 hole golf courses within a 25 minute drive, at Secret Valley and Tasada.
The Troodos Mountains, which rise 1000m above the sea, are about an hour away and you will be able to go on wonderful walks through the mountain scenery. Here you can also explore the Kykkos Monastery and the museum.
Places to visit include Kourium, an ancient Roman city with amphitheater (circa 1200 BC) and Aphrodite's Rock, the fabled birthplace of Aphrodite, Goddess of Love.
Paphos, 45 minutes away, has historical archaeological sites and an attractive fishing port/harbour.
You can also take a one day package tour to Cairo from Paphos Airport.
