The Paphos region
With year round sunshine, soothing sea breezes and a wealth of things to see and do, Paphos Disrtrict is the ideal destination for young families and sunlovers of all ages. The vibrant town of Paphos, with its bars, restaurants and beaches, is only 20 mins from the Resort. Around its delightful harbour area you will find the Frankish Castle (which hosts many cultural activities during the season), the famous Paphos mosaics and the Tomb of the Kings.
Five minutes drive from the villa is ‘Petra tou Romiou’ (Aphrodite’s Rock), where Aphrodite, the goddess of love, is said to have emerged from the sea. A few kilometres beyond lies Pissouri, a small traditional village, with a delightful beach and a broad selection of restaurants and shops circling its historic village square. Further eastwards, the ‘Kourion’ is not to be missed with its wonderful amphitheatre, ancient baths and mosaics.
Local beaches are plentiful and include: ‘The Cove’ 3 mins drive from the villa, as well as Aphrodite’s Rock and Pissouri (with its wealth of water sports) and Avdimou - which is home of the Zias Beach Club.
Further afield, the beautiful Akamas Peninsula and the scenic Troodos Mountains, with their traditional villages and pine and cedar forests, are two areas well worth a visit.
With its varied beaches and landscapes, citrus groves, olive and carob trees, traditional villages, ancient ruins, sport, beaches and beautiful climate Paphos District is an excellent year round destination.
In a spectacular setting overlooking the very spot where Aphrodite, Goddess of Love, is said to have emerged from the waves lies Aphrodite Hills - Cyprus' first fully integrated 5* resort. If holiday luxury is what you desire, then Aphrodite Hills is the place for you. Officially opened in Spring 2005 the resort is surrounded by protected natural parkland & incorporates two gently sloping plateaux, dotted with olive and carob trees, that straddle a spectacular and unspoilt ravine. With its excellent golf, tennis, health spa, fitness training, and equestrian facilities, plus a wide selection of restaurants and bars around the scenic village square, a 5* Intercontinental Hotel and private beach facilities, the Resort has something for everyone.
The resort is within easy reach of both Paphos & Limassol. Paphos International Airport (PFO) is less than 15 minutes drive, while Larnaca Airport is an easy one hour motorway drive to the east.
Attractions beyond the resort include the pine forested Troodos mountains and the beautiful Akamas Peninsula, with its expanse of untamed parkland and secluded beaches. While the popular tourist destinations of Pissouri, Paphos, Limassol, Polis, Coral Bay and Peyia are all within easy driving distance of Aphrodite Hills, and make for a marvellous day out.
If you would rather savour the rich history of the Island then ancient Greek artefacts & ruins can be found throughout the entire Paphos area.
For the children there are 3 separate waterparks - one on the outskirts of Paphos & 2 near Limassol.
In addition, Aphrodite Hills has created a new beach club for resort guests. The Beach Club is located a short drive from the resort and a complimentary shuttle will be available to transfer guests in both directions at frequent intervals. The sandy, children-friendly beach offers luxury bar and restaurant facilities.

"Chilled out and sunny Christmas"
This villa was perfect for a Christmas getaway. The owners couldn't have been more helpful in providing full details of local area and Christmas activities held on the resort. Travelled with a 14 yr old son so the facilities on offer on the resort were great with the TV package and internet , the play station being an added bonus. Location and views from the villa were perfect. We thought all we would see would be the fab golf course, but a sea view from the upper balcony was lovely. The villa was perfectly equipped and with it being December, the heating was great, but also lovely throws for keeping cosy through the somewhat chilly evenings. The Christmas tree and decs made it just like home from home with added luxury of sunshine!
Thank you so much - we try to be prompt and helpful before clients travel. We are also lucky to have an excellent management company who live on resort and are on hand for any queries.
Your kind comments are much appreciated

"Lovely villa, excellent location within the resort!"
We rented the villa for two weeks for our honeymoon and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The villa is lovely with all the amenities and services you would expect and require. The villa is an excellent location within the resort, being only a short walk to the lovely village square. It was lovely watching the golfers from the balcony over breakfast and enjoy the evening sunsets. Would definitely recommend a car to allow flexibility as Paphos is worth a visit. The on-site supermarket was quite pricey, so suggest the local one in Pissouri as an alternative. Our stay was made even better with a visit to Kolios winery, lovely views, wine and 14 course Meze was outstanding!! Also recommend 'Cyprus night' in Pissouri old town for good food and entertainment, but be sure to book as it does get busy! Overall, a fantastic villa within a fantastic resort - we can't wait to return one day!

"A clean and beautiful villa with everything you could need and I strongly recommend a stay there!"
We spotted this villa on the internet earlier this year and on face value and the pictures that we saw we felt it had everything we were looking for and we were not disappointed, in fact we were thrilled. From the moment of booking the owner was informative and pyment by installment was acceptable.
We arrived in Cyprus on a late flight but the instructions given to us by the owner before we departed meant that everything went smoothly. We telephoned the property management people to say our flight had arrrived, took a taxi from the airport (approx 30 Euros) and we were met at the secure entrance, escorted to our villa, given a thorough brief on the layout and amenities and then handed the keys. It could not have been easier and there was a small welcome pack of milk, bread, eggs, tea and coffee which meant that we could still have a snack and not have to worry about breakfast in the morning. My partner and I trevelled with our two boys, one fourteen and one twelve and they were straight in the pool cooling down.
The villa was exceptionally clean, I can honestly say that in all the holiday locations I have stayed this was the cleanest. Towels were provided and the all essential air conditioning cooled the villa splendidly. There was plenty of crockery, glasses etc and all white goods are provided. The villa has a splendid view of the golf course at the rear, the garden is well kept, the swimming pool clean (it gets cleaned twice a week) and the on site shop and facilities are a two minute walk away. On the subject of the shop please note it can be rather pricey and I would recommend driving into the nearby village and going to the local supermarket for your self catering needs. I have nothing negative to say about our stay, it was fantastic but the only point to note it is slightly remote so unless you just want to stay on the resort and enjoy all of the facilities, of which there are plenty, then a hire car is essential. On that point I would strongly recommend the services of George at Kyrenia Hire Car (www.kyreniacarhire.com) who provided us with a very clean and reliable car at a very fair price. They also provided runs to and from the airport at 30 Euros and there services are second to none. We had a late night flight out of Cyprus and so we were dropped off by request at Pafos port on our last day, they took care of our bags and picked us up later. Our driver was actually the owners father who gives an interesting and in depth 'tourist' commentary as you travel. I would strongly recommend them for all your taxi and hire car needs in Cyprus, they were perfect!
Woulkd I book again, that's a massive YES and when I get back to work I am looking for dates next year I can holiday again. The owner is superb in everything from booking to providing information, we had a fantastic time in the nicest and most splendid villa I have ever had the pleasure to stay in.
