The village itself is renowned for its spectacular views, while the coastline below has one of the best sandy beaches of the Paphos region at Coral Bay, which each year is awarded with a Blue Flag for its bathing water quality.

About the area
Mandria, the nearest beach is unspoilt with almost no development at all, mainly pebbles, there are some sandy patches.Timi beach, on the road to the airport, is only a 5 minutes drive. Here it is safe to swim and snorkle and there is an excellent beach bar, the Bona Mara, which we recommend you try.It has a lovely terrace overlooking the sea and watch the sun set. Many small beach areas a few km away towards Aphrodite's Rock. A little further is Pissouri (20 mins), where the fabulous curved bay offers watersports, sunbeds and tavernas. Coral Bay is a very popular blue flag beach about 30 minutes by car. Full directions for this and many other amenities, facilities and attractions are in the information leaflets within the house.
Three excellent courses no more than 15 minutes drive.
Secret Valley Golf Course is an 18 hole championship golf course which has just been extended and improved.Set amongst mature trees with beautiful sculptured rock formations and spectacular views all around. Par 72, 6120 metres. The Aphrodite Hills Golf Course. A fantastic and beautifully laid out award winning 18 hole championship course again overlooking the Mediterranean, and set amongst the hills above Ahprodites Rock with views to die for. In distance terms almost next door to Secret Valley, so again very close. At 6300m long and par 71/70, It is among the best in Cyprus, and as good as it's Spanish or Portuguese counterparts. Should you tire of these two, a third course Elea Estate is an award winning course opened in 2011.The challenging Par 71 course, designed by the legendary Sir Nick Faldo, incorporates numerous natural features and boasts stunning views of the Mediterranean.
The busy tourist area of Paphos and Kato Paphos are only 15 minutes away using either main roads through villages, or the nearby motorway. The villages of Timi, Mandria and Kouklia (more shops and restaurants) are signposted from Anarita and are an easy few minutes drive away. The major town of Limassol is a 40 minute drive. Coral Bay is 30 minutes,Larnaca is 80 minutes and Nicosia is 90 mins. The Troodos Mountains are a scenic 45 minute drive with the option of several wonderful picturesque routes to choose from.
ON ARRIVAL at your holiday home, you can expect a lovely welcome from our key holders and a pack (if you request it) to help you over the initial period before you are able to shop. DRIVING : Traffic drives on the left in Cyprus just as Britain, and all road signs are in English/Greek. Driving etiquette is based on the UK Highway Code, and the average driver should have no fear of renting a car in Cyprus. Fuel is cheaper than UK, and hire cars are young, clean and reliable. Hire cost is also very reasonably priced in comparison with many countries.(contact us for suggested companies). Unless you have hired a car, and are collecting it at the airport Taxi's are currently the only public transport operating between the airport and Anarita. ENTERTAINMENT: Just 5 minutes drive from Anarita is the famous Aphrodites rock where you can swim in the turquoise sea. Or drive up to the restaurant high on the rock above and marvel at the spectacular views. Maybe you prefer to cater for yourself? Then pack your own treats and use the free picnic facilities nearby, again offering excellent views. 5 mins drive to Asprokremos Dam and great walks. Also take a trip to the famous Timi market which is open every Sunday and have a browse.It is only a 2 minutes down the road. Nearby Kato Paphos has a lovely harbour area with many shops, bars and restaurants, and various entertaining sailing trips and midnight cruises can also be booked from here. Don't miss seeing the sun set over the harbour which is a sight well worth a photograph! Next to the harbour is the Heritage centre where you can see and actually walk amongst ancient mosaics with a fascinating history. Close too is the famous Tombs of the Kings, again part of the rich cultural heritage of the town. Paphos also has cinemas, 10 pin bowling,a couple of kart tracks, a waterpark and a zoo.If you like shopping a brand new shopping mall has opened in Paphos. A visit to the Troodos mountains is also a 'must' as the scenery is totally different. Feeling adventurous? Hire a quad bike and really see the region, or maybe an all day jeep safari which will take you to places normal cars cannot reach. Whatever you choose there is plenty to see, and remember the weather is Guaranteed!
This house although 6 years old has only really been used by ourselves and our family, with just occasional guests, which is why it is in such excellent order. We are now putting it on to the rental market for this year 2014.

My husband is co owner of the house and he is also a retired teacher and loves to travel as well as watch any sport!
Year property purchased: 2008
Why this location?
We bought a townhouse in Anarita because it is a typical, friendly cypriat village. It is easily possible to stroll from the house to either a shop, bank, bus stop or restaurant. A short drive can include more lovely villages and 10 minutes on the Highway means Paphos town, harbour, waterpark and beaches are available. Also the house being very convenient for the airport is a plus point. Access to the mountains is easy from Anarita too, and with three excellent golf courses just 10 minutes away the facilities are there if you want them. So to put it simply, it is a house on a lovely complex with great permanent neighbours in a quiet village but yet so close to good quality amenities.
What are the unique benefits of the property?
The beauty of a holiday in Cyprus is the weather, language and driving. The temperature rarely falls below 15 degrees during the day,even in winter, so whenever we go there the sun is almost guaranteed.. Almost everyone speaks English which makes things very easy if you need to ask anything, and with motoring on the same side of the road as the UK, it all drops into place nicely and reduces the hassle of visiting a foreign country considerably. There is a wide choice of holiday homes but often they are just maintained to a minimum standard. Having used the house ourselves we are confident that it has everything needed for a relaxing and problem free holiday.
