Mighty Aphrodite loved Paphos, and so will you

Reputedly the birthplace of Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, you'll find yourself falling for Paphos from the minute you arrive. It's one of those places where everything is just right. Want to snoop around ancient sites? Check. Swim in warm seas off sandy beaches? Check. Shop for handmade local crafts and edible delicacies? Sit out on balmy evenings with rich Greek food and good wine? Check, check, check. A Paphos vacation rental is such a sure thing in every respect that you'll wonder why you ever considered going anywhere else.

From the sea to the summits with a Paphos vacation rental

Think you've seen the bluest seas around? Think again. Your Paphos vacation rental puts you at the heart of the Mediterranean, and the beaches here are so gorgeous that it's a wonder the ancient inhabitants managed to leave them long enough to create the various spectacular archaeological remains littered around the city. Water sports are big round here, including snorkeling and diving. And while sightseeing in Paphos itself will give you more than enough to be going on with, it's a shame not to take some excursions. Try taking a driving or hiking tour out in the nearby Troodos Mountains.

Pack the weathered fedora and the bullwhip

Let's not beat about the bush—there are few places on earth where you can see such remarkable ancient remains as in Paphos, and most of them are concentrated in Paphos Archaeological Park. Among the most famous sites are the House of Dionysos and the House of Aion, with intricate mosaic floors that are among the best preserved in the world. However, if you ask anyone who's been to Paphos what the standout attraction is, chances are they'll direct you towards the Tombs of the Kings. This massive necropolis is carved into solid rock, and is pretty much guaranteed to bring out your inner Indiana Jones.

Need another excuse to get yourself in the sea?

The climate in this part of the Mediterranean is very welcoming indeed, if a bit over-enthusiastic at times. Come August, the temperatures soar, and even those sea breezes can only do so much. If you're the sort who doesn't mind a bit of heat, then it might be perfect, but otherwise you'll tend to find many visitors opting for shoulder season. It's fairly dry all year round, and temperatures in Paphos can be very mild even as late as November. Paphos is very popular with Brits, so for cheaper rates, try steering clear of British school holidays.

The Troodos Mountains are truly tremendous

Paphos is set on the west coast of Cyprus, one of the most attractive and popular islands in the Mediterranean Sea. With its rocky coastline, sandy beaches, gleaming azure waters, and glorious sunsets, you're probably not going to want to venture inland. But you should, because it gets even better. The Troodos Mountains cover a big chunk of western Cyprus, and these lofty peaks and rolling, forested hills hide all sorts of hidden gems. The mountains are full of hiking trails and secluded monasteries, and if you're really lucky you might spot a mouflon, a sort of super-rare wild sheep.
