''The villa was great and the pictures don't do it justice, the views were to die for, every were you looked it was lovely the fireman that is on watch at the top of the mountain went passed every morning and always waved to us. The Local bar Mikes, the owner was one of the most genuine person we have ever met giving us plates of food every time we were there and even jam and fruit to take home. The owners who lived near were very helpful and came with eggs and fruit off there farm. Letsrentonline were very helpful and all communications were first rate, we will be going back to Cyprus next year and will be using letsrentonline again. I don't mind you using my comments, the only thing I think was missing form the villa was a safe to put all your valuables in all though they say Cyprus is safe with little crime it just puts your mind at rest. Geraldine, Birmingham.''

Lysos is a traditional mountain village in Paphos District, Cyprus. It's a picturesque mountain village famous for its efforts to maintain the beauty and the traditions of Cyprus. At just under 500 metres above sea level the summers are a few degrees cooler than the fierce summer temperatures in the coastal towns, the air is less humid and there's usually a gentle mountain breeze. In various locations around Lysos there are many remarkable landmark churches. Ayios Georgios was built in the 13th century where frescoes of Saint Mama can be found and it's still protected by the antiquities department. Churches such as Panayia Chryselousa constructed at the end of the 15th century with Byzantine and Gothic elements, Profitis Elias, Ayios Constantinos, Ayios Charalambos and the country church of Archangel Michael provide for a unique perspective of the village history. With an abundance of natural water Lysos was used in Cyprus as an industrial area for the melting of metals. The fountain located by the church and built in the 1900's was made entirely of stone including the five taps of which were used to supply fresh drinking water.
Lysos is situated between the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea and the spectacular mountains of Paphos Forest and the Troodos. Walking in the forests is a delight. Filled with pine trees, fruit and olive trees, wild flowers and herbs and vineyards the air is scented and the views spectacular. Lysos is home to a very good traditional Cyprus taverna, with neighbouring shops and the more widely known Paradisos Hills Hotel (50m away from Villa Agios Georgios). The Paradisos Hills Hotel is a small intimate hotel with only 15 rooms and a restaurant open for breakfast, lunch and dinner serving only the finest traditional Cyprus and International cuisine. Most of the food is locally sourced and much of it is organic and the Sunday buffet lunches are now known throughout Cyprus. The Paradisos Hills Hotel also has international evenings where guests and regular customers can experience something different and test the full range of its gastronomic skills.

There is plenty of activity to choose from in Polis, whether you wish to dine in one of the many good quality restaurants, have a coffee or lunch in the central square, hire mountain bikes, quad bikes or maybe even a boat! The nearby Latchi beach is renowned as one of the best in Cyprus and not as crowded as the beaches in and around Paphos itself. Latchi beach is famous for its clear blue sea, soft white sand and a great selection of watersports which are readily available. The watersports available at Latchi include diving, snorkelling, sailing, banana rides and a great deal more. Bring your UK driving licence and you can even hire a boat and explore the Akamas coast from the sea. Drop anchor when you feel like it and swim or snorkel in the warm crystal blue water of the Mediterranean Sea.
Don't fancy being the captain? Take a boat ride to the 'Blue Lagoon', swim or snorkel in the sea, then come back to the pretty harbour at Latchi to eat. Try the famous 'Fish Meze' where you'll be served around 20 dishes including some of the freshest catches of the day whilst watching the world go by. The harbour at Latchi is perfect to while away some time people watching.Some of the best horse riding in Cyprus is also on the doorstep in Lysos. Further info here: Horse Riding in Paphos, Cyprus.
