Villa in Megas Alexandros, Nr Tomb of the Kings, Paphos, Cyprus - Peaceful Location, Near Beach, Shops And Nightlife
About Penny Hird
Hello, We live in Yorkshire in the UK and have owned our House at Megas Alexandros for ten years. We have great holidays there ourselves and go there as often and for as long as we can. Our two children and partners absolutely love it, especially been so close to all the facilities in the area, with beautiful restaurants serving great food in a beautiful climate, what more can any one want. We are very pleased that over the last couple of years many families have rented the apartment and they have told us that they've had a lovely time. It also makes a great escape for couples, and several couples and groups have returned for further holidays.
Penny Hird purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Penny Hird chose Paphos
Megas Alexandros is truly a little gem. The location is perfect; quiet and set back but just as short walk to the coast and all amenities. The houses and development are nothing short of stunning and finished to the highest standard. We were so impressed by the quality of the build in general. Cyprus has one of the longest seasons in the Med which means more sun! Paphos is easy to reach with low cost airlines flying from UK airports. Paphos has something fro everyone; history, golf, water sports, sun, great food, lovely people, it was difficult not to fall for the place. There has been massive investment in the area over the last few years without losing its identity. This is a quality location we can easily visit time and time again and fly to without breaking the bank.
What makes this Villa unique
The development is quiet and very relaxed and is extremely convenient for all local amenities and has the benefits of 5* accommodation in the centre of the resort. The amazing weather, dramatic sunsets The Villa is situated just far enough away from the hubbub of Kato Paphos with it's wonderful Taverns and the night life and it's array of bars and eateries to escape any noise but they are both easily accessible on foot.

A home from home
Just returned from a 14 day stay at this superbly equipped holiday home. Everything about it was spot on and felt very comfortable immediately. Lovely decor and comfortable beds too.
The pool was very clean and we'll maintained as was the rest of the area .a nice quiet location which is not far from most amenities with main bus routes just a short walk away .and lots of places to visit. We really enjoyed our stay here and rate it very highly.and will have no hesitation in booking again.

Thank you for a lovely review means a lot .means I am doing something right hope to welcome you back one day
absolutely perfect, could not wish for anything more
The villa was very clean and well kept. Could not fault a single thing . I can't wait to book my next stay in the new year. Had a fabulous stay
Excellent property for the price, with everything you need.
We visited for one week (but wanted more) for a wedding,
so five adults shared the villa.
Found the villa to have everything we needed, the pool was lovely for a dip in the morning and for just lazing around during the day.
TV available (including Netflix) plus fridge freezer and all cooking facilities and a washing machine as well.
Penny had arranged for a welcome pack to great us with some much appreciated provisions but there is a Local supermarket only yards away and a Lidl 5 mins drive.
A brisk 10 min walk down to tombs of the kings and the main strip where all the bars and restaurants are located and a local bus stop where the 615 takes you down to the main port for 1.5 euros every 15mins.
So a great location not too far away from it all.
Must recommend Karlinas and also Alphie T's for great food.
O'neills for your irish bar and in the town the excellent pub "the Old Fishing Shack" that serves real beers and not just Keo and Leon..
Holiday in megus alexandros
Had a fabulous week at the house in Megus Alexandros everything was really good the house was very clean and well equipped.The manager and his wife were very helpful and the house is in a really good position.Megus Alexandros is a great place nice and quiet but very near restaurants and night life would really recommend it.
Thank you for your lovely review so pleased you had a lovely holiday hope to welcome you back one day .
We very much enjoyed our holiday and the villa was good value and suited our needs.
My wife and daughter had a great time and we found the property very suitable. It is very communal and further away from the sea than I expected. Hiring a car is essential as walking anywhere in 32 degrees is a chore. Very good local restaurants and bars are walkable in the evening. Paphos Harbour is perfect for eating, browsing and drinking.
The beach next to the deluxe Elysium Hotel is about a 5 - 10 minute walk away. Coral Bay caters for water sports and is about 10 - 15 minute drive away by bus.
Paphos is the nearest airport and a 15 - 20 minute drive away from Megas Alexandros costing around 20 Euros by taxi. Larnaca is around 45 minutes drive away. Taxis are readily available at the airports or you can arrange car hire.
Megas Alexandros is central to the lively and historical Tombs of the Kings area. Kato Paphos, its harbour and the Old Town are about a 15 minute walk away or a short taxi/bus ride. Coral beach is about a 10 - 15 minute drive. Nicosia is 1 1/2 hours drive, Larnaca 45 minutes.
Paphos is a year round holiday destination with a long season due to the glorious weather. There is something for everyone: water sports, Aphrodite water park, beaches, historical sites, golf, skiing in the winter, yachting, cruising, horse trekking, fabulous food, friendly locals. Banks, supermarkets, hospital and Internet cafes are all within easy reach. Cypriot law is based on British law and driving is on the left hand side of the road.
