Paphos and its surrounds: There are many activities available locally including cycling, mountain biking, rock climbing, trekking, sea kayaking, snorkelling and a water park.
The whole of Paphos town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with fascinating mosaics at the Houses of Aion and Dionysos, archaeological sites such as St. Paul’s Pillar and The Tombs of the Kings and many other sites of interest such as the harbour fort. There are also beautiful monasteries such as Agios Neofytos and Chrysorrogiatissa on the nearby Akamas Peninsular and inland, together with picturesque villages and nature trails. Further north lie the Baths of Aphrodite, near to the resort town of Polis, which overlooks the beautiful Chrysochou Bay with its charming fishing refuge of Latsi. The relatively unspoilt state of the countryside and villages make the area, including the Akamas Peninsular, a treasure for walkers and naturalists. East of Polis, next to rocky beaches and cliffs are delightful villages such as Pomos and Kato Pyrgos.
Further afield around Cyprus: Limassol and the area immediately around it contains enough cultural treasures to occupy you for days. In the heart of the city itself is the Cyprus Mediaeval Museum, housed in the imposing mediaeval fort where, in 1191, Richard the Lionheart married Berengaria of Navarre and made her Queen of England.
The Troodos massif, which stretches across the centre of Cyprus and contains Mount Olympus, the highest peak at 1,952m, is a truly spectacular, rugged but easily accessible region brimming with nature trails, 12th to 15th century frescoed churches, winemaking villages and pine forests. There are monasteries dating from the Byzantine period and the best known is at Kykkos. The main resorts are Platres and Kakopetria, which are cosmopolitan villages with attractive bakeries, shops and a refreshing alpine atmosphere.
Pissouri is a seaside village between Paphos and Limassol with many tavernas, restaurants and bars serving food and drink of exceptional quality.
Great place to stay and a perfect starting point to explore the island. Nice restaurants in walking distance, supermarkets just around the corner.
The villa is beautifully maintained, extremely spacious, finished to a high standard and a lovely pool right at your doorstep. Back garden is perfect for morning and evening meals. The villa is immaculate, stocked with everything you need and very comfortable for a family. There is a lot to do in the area, close to the airport and perfect location for exploring the island. Owner and property manager were very helpful and welcoming. We loved our stay and would thoroughly recommend it to others. Everything about the house was a dream. Thank you!
All communications with Brian was prompt and very helpful. He even let us use the house on our last day as we had an evening flight. This was a real bonus to a wonderful stay at this well equipped house. Everything was first class - beds, towells, crockery,etc were all good quality. Pool was really lovely and clean. The bar was closed during our stay but that wasn't a problem to us. There is an excellent bus service to either the harbour or to Coral Bay, but we hired a car for the week as we not only went to Coral Bay but liked St George's beach better and it was a fair distance on. We never tried the beach which was closest to the house so cant really comment on that. We did have a problem with one of the bedroom doors but Max came to the rescue and got things sorted within a couple of hours. The rear garden was a real bonus, very private and peaceful. We found a restaurant a short walk away towards the harbour that served excellent food - in fact I would say probably the best holiday food ever - GUSTO would be a must for eating out.
I would recommend this property.
This was our fourth year on the trot in the townhouse and as it is in a sunny location with easy access to bus stop, Lild and restaurants and walkable distance to the Mall and harbour we have already booked up for next year.
Lovely well appointed townhouse in a quiet residential area not far from the bars and restaurants of the Tomb of the Kings area. Nice to have a welcome pack and find the accommodation spotlessly clean. Didn't use the pool as it was the beginning of February and cool but it is a lovely size. Would stay again.
We travelled as a family of 4, 2 adults and 2 teenagers, for 2 weeks in August.
All the contact with the owner was dealt with immediately and nothing was too much trouble. There was even a small welcome pack to see us through our first day which was ideal as we didn't arrive until late at night.
The townhouse is immaculate and really is a home from home. We were met by Max, who looks after the property for the owner, who showed us around the house and where everything was. We never need his assistance after this as everything in the house is in very good condition with lots of little extras. The house has air con (needed in August) and wifi (keeps the teenagers happy). The house is set in a small quiet complex with a mix of residents and holiday lets. The pool is right outside the front door with plenty of sunbeds. We would normally go to the pool at around 10am and there was always sunbeds available, no need to get up early for a towel run. There is also a small bar at the opposite end of the pool which is open from 10am to 10pm where you can purchase drinks and snacks etc. Ivan, the bar manager, is a good source of local information and is very friendly. There is a Lidl supermarket which is a 5 minute walk away for all your essentials.
There are bars and restaurants on the Tomb of Kings Road which are a 15 minute walk from the house. We ate in a few of them and the food was good. Further on there is the harbour. This is walkable but can take a good 30 minutes, there is a good bus service which runs from the main road (outside Lidl) to the harbour and costs 1.50 Euros each. The price goes up after 10pm so we usually got a taxi back as it worked out the same price. The harbour itself has plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from and we never had a bad meal. Our best restaurant was Porto Bello (italian) excellent food and customer service.
We visited the Tomb of Kings, 2.50 Euros each, for a bit of history which is worth a visit. We also went to the Aphrodite water park, 100 Euros for 4 people, although it was on the small side the rides are good and we were in there for a good part of the day. Nick's watersports, which is on the beach just down from the water park, is reasonably priced and has a good selection of activities. We tried the paragliding which was good fun (30 Euros per person).
When we decide to come back to Cyprus this will be the only place we will book, it is that good.
Don't think about it, just book it.
