Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
The apartment is in a fantastic location, in a quiet area just off the Tomb of the Kings road near the Lighthouse in Paphos. This offers access to all local amenities (supermarkets, bars, restaurants, shops) whilst also being secluded. The Blue Flag Lighthouse beach is just 250 yards down the road, and the apartment has a sea-view. For non beach lovers, the apartment has a swimming pool and plenty of sunbeds to take advantage of the sunny Cyprus weather.
Situated on the ground floor, and with additional access via a ramp, the apartment is ideal for families or those with walking difficulties. Built in 2008, the apartment and furnishings are of the highest standard and all requirements have been catered for. Our family also owns the 2-bedroomed apartment next-door, and we are also in contact with the owners of a similar 2-bedroomed ground floor apartment - so please contact us if you would like information for larger parties - ideal for those coming to Cyprus for a family wedding!
The apartment has a flat screen TV and DVD player, together with other features such as iPOD docking stations in each bedroom to give the apartment that touch of luxury. NEW FOR 2014 - for a small additional charge we can switch on broadband, which enables a list of English TV channels and/or wi-fi so you can use laptops, smartphones, tablets and other internet-enabled devices.
Our guests have described the apartment as a real "home from home" and one recently said "how can you improve on perfection?"

The living area has two 3-seater quality chocolate-brown leather sofas, one of which pulls out to form a sofa-bed. There is a flat-screen wall-mounted LCD TV and a DVD player (which also plays CDs), as well as plenty of DVDs (including childrens' movies and TV shows) to choose from.

The two bedrooms (one double, one twin) both have built-in wardrobes and vanity units with plenty of storage space for your belongings. The vanity units have an overhead light, a large mirror and a plug socket - and no need for adaptors, Cyprus has the same electricity current as the UK, complete with 3-pin plugs.
The twin bedroom wardrobe also contains an electronic safe for peace of mind. Both rooms have hairdryers and are also complete with radio alarm clocks with iPod docks, which will charge your iPod or MP3 player in addition to playing your music.
The bathroom has a shower over the bath, with a frosted shower screen, and is complete with a sink vanity unit and WC. The shower and taps are Grohe fittings.

NEW - we also have lots of baby and toddler equipment, including a steriliser, changing mat, weaning equipment, potty and step, bed guard and lots more! See our new site at cyprus-family-apartment.com for more details!
For the winter months we have a de-humidifier to help combat the damp air often found in Cyprus' concrete-built apartments - this also helps to heat the apartment if needed.
Finally, as the apartment was only built in 2008, it utilises the new drainage system in Cyprus, which means you can flush paper down the toilet! Great news for those who have experienced the notoriously dodgy plumbing in many Cypriot and Greek resorts!

The Paphos region
There are many reasons to visit Paphos - many people return year after year to sample the hospitality, the beautiful weather, the gorgeous food, the abundant fruit and the local wines and spirits.
For the first-time visitor, life is made easier by the fact that:
* English is widely spoken
* Driving in Cyprus is on the left - so car hire need not be daunting
* Three-pin electrical plugs are used, just like in the UK
* Cyprus has now converted to the Euro for currency
There are so many attractions on Cyprus that appeal to young and old - and Paphos is an ideal base from which to start exploring!
The Paphos area enjoys 340 days of sunshine per year, and has many attractions including Golfing, Hiking, Pony Trekking, Jeep Safaris, Watersports, Go-Karting, Boat Trips, Fishing, Mountain Biking - and even Skiing and Snowboarding on the Troodos Mountains between January and March!
The apartment is situated on a quiet road just off the main Tomb of the Kings Road in Kato Paphos, and is therefore within a couple of minutes walk of all amenities, including:
* Restaurants and Bars
* Bakery and Doughnut Shop
* 24-Hour Supermarket
* Internet Cafe
* Pharmacy and Doctors
The main harbour in Paphos is a 20 minute walk on the new walkway around the headland by the lighthouse, or a 15 minute walk along the road. This is where the castle is situated, together with many restaurants specialising in fresh local fish dishes. This is also where to get a boat for one of the many day trips which depart from the harbour. The Kato Paphos Archaeological Park is close to the harbour, with excavations uncovering many beautiful mosaics - well worth a visit.
The famous Tombs of the Kings excavation is only 15 minutes walk and the lively Bar Street area is also a 15 minute walk away from the apartment.
For families of all ages, the Aphrodite Water Park in Paphos is very good value and is a short bus or car ride away. Free transfers are available - get the number 11 or 15 bus, keep your bus tickets and get a refund at the entrance!
Another good family attraction is the Paphos Aquarium, located in the town centre - and if you need respite from the hot sun, there is also a bowling alley only 5 minutes walk away.
For beach lovers, Coral Bay is only a few minutes drive (or a short bus ride) away, and there are many other fabulous beaches within easy driving distance. And of course, there is a Blue Flag beach just 250 yards down the lane from the apartment!
Golfing facilities in Paphos are excellent, with three international standard courses within easy driving distance.
The apartment is also ideally located for friends and families attending weddings in Cyprus - especially as the two similar apartments can be booked at the same time (subject to availability), accommodating a total of up to 18 people in the same small complex - please contact us for more details.
