The Paphos region
Paphos, a city rich in history, is a gem of Western Cyprus.

Paphos proudly boasts the remains of villas, palaces, theatres, fortresses and tombs that belong to Classical, Hellenistic and Roman periods.
Such exceptional architectural and historic value is an ornament to the city that is included in UNESCO’s list of world heritage as a natural and cultural treasure. Paphos, roughly divided into Old Paphos and New Paphos, is also famous for its sun-kissed beaches.
Paphos was valued as a major port and the capital of Cyprus during Roman times. Later when the British colonized the island, the city started losing its value especially after Nicosia gained importance. Today, this small harbour is slowly and steadily emerging as an attractive tourist destination

"Fabulous views, quiet & very private"
Fully functional apartment in a small complex, quiet location. Spent many an evening sat out on the balcony overlooking the pool area. Ideal base for visiting nearby sites. The pool area is very quiet, it was like having your own private pool. We did hire a car but for those nights when you wanted to have a few beers in town the taxi ride was well worth it as it was only 8 euros. Would definitely go again.
