According to mythology, a white foam formed from which emerged a beautiful girl with gold hair Aphrodite a gentle breath carried the girl to the shores of Paphos. The moment the goddess set foot on land, beautiful flowers,anemones and capers sprang up. Travellers can visit different archaeological sites, ancient monasteries,
and museums. Tombs of the Kings, Catacombs of Agia Solomoni, Mosaics of Paphos are some of the more popularl sights in Paphos. Even if that doesn't sound appealing then one can simply enjoy the hot summer days, on the most sandy beaches.

The villa is situated in the traditional village of Kathikas. One of the most beautiful villages, what makes it so special?
The village is maily built of stone, It is set on the low hills of the Laona Plateau at 700mts above sea. The village has a
long history of a resting place of merchants. Mythology also suggests that a king of Paphos chose Kathikas as his resting and
holiday place. It is the perfect place for a quiet relaxing holiday away from all the noisy tourists areas.
There are three taverns literally just on your doorstep, just a couple of minutes walk and you can be sipping local wine
and having a traditional meze. Also there are a couple of coffee shops, and one British style pub with all the sport
highlights. There is also a bank available. Plus a very well stocked local grocery store. (all couple of minutes walk)
Just 5 minutes drive and one can visit two wineries as Kathikas is renowned for their wine making skills. Wine tasting
is most welcome.
The Area is also a favourite for, walking, birdwatching, painting, photography, and cycling up those steep hills.
