Kato Paphos

Kato Paphos is a vibrant cosmopolitan resort, best known for its mediaeval fort, old fishing harbour, seafront promenade and is highly popular with tourists and locals alike. There are numerous sandy beaches here, along with excellent open-air restaurants and entertainment facilities. Cultural events ranging from operas to art exhibitions and concerts regularly take place.

Pano Paphos is host to the main shopping area and traditional market consisting of craft, embroidery, leather, jewellery and pottery. Here you will also find a plethora of well known department stores.

In addition to shopping, sunbathing and water sports, there’s plenty to do in Paphos during the day. Places of interest include the Byzantine Museum; Roman mosaics at the House of Dionysos, the Archaeological Museum, St. Paul’s Church and Pillar, the Tomb of the Kings and the Christian Catacombs.

Our apartment was brilliant. It was beautifully clean and nicely furnished. A cut above usual Greek standard. Location was good - very quiet- but we could walk to sea front, shops and eateries easily.

Thank you for your review. We're glad you enjoyed the apartment and hope to see you again soon.

"Stunning apartment, convenient location. Highly Recommend!"

The apartment was very clean and modern, furnished beautifully and had everything we needed. The pool area was lovely and quiet.

The location was perfect for us. There are a couple of mini-supermarkets approx. 100m away and the main supermarket was only 500m away. It is an easy walk to the beaches and ancient sites such as the mosaics and amphitheatre. There are also loads of great restaurants and bars within 100 - 200m of the apartment.

It was lovley to be so near to everything, yet in such a peaceful area. I would highly recommend this apartment to friends and family.

Thank you for your comments. We're glad that you had a lovley holiday and enjoyed the apartment. See you again soon!

"Amazing apartments, home from home and couldn't wish for any better."

We have just returned from a 2 week holiday at the Athenaeum Holiday apartments and have had a lovely, lovely time. The hosts Helen and Alvin are absolutely wonderful and they ensure that your stay is enjoyable and memorable. They are there if you need them but are very unobtrusive to ensure that your privacy is not invaded.
The apartments are extremely well equiped and they are in a very central position. Bars and restaurants are easily accessible within a 5 minute walk.
We have holidayed in Paphos for over 20 years and we have stayed in a lot of different accommodations and I would definately rate the Athenaeum as one of the very best.
We have booked again for another 2 weeks in September and quite frankly we cannot wait to return.
While we were there we enjoyed some lovely meals at Grazie, Argo and the First and Last pub. Although we had heard people say that the prices were expensive this year, we found that the prices were reasonable.

Thank you for your lovely review. It was a pleasure to have you stay and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

"Great central location and excellent standard apartment"

Based just a short walk from central Paphos and its amenities our 1 bed apartment was furnished to a high standard with modern facilities such as ceramic hob, American style fridge freezer and automatic washing. machine. A comprehensive range of channels can be accessed via the plasma television. Our helpful unobtrusive hosts Helen and Alvin are lovely people and nothing was too much trouble for them. We found the pack explaining how to use the various electronic equipment very useful. As it is a very small complex the pool is never overcrowded and indeed on some days we were the only people using it. Comfortable sunbeds are provided. We have visited Cyprus numerous times and these are the best apartments we have stayed in and offer excellent value for money. We found our stay a totally relaxing and enjoyable experience and have already booked for next year.

Thank you for your kind words. It was an absolute pleasure to have you stay and we look forward to seeing you again next year.

"Excellent location, gorgeous apartment"

We spent nearly two weeks at this apartment and it was great, both the location and the apartment itself were fantastic. The apartment was very modern, with air conditioning and a lovely outside patio area leading out to the pool. The location of the apartment meant that it was close enough to reach the lively areas of Paphos with ease, but also far enough away so we were not disturbed by the noise. The walk to the town/beach was minimal, 10 minutes at the most.

Helen and Alvin were extremely accomodating and ordered us a taxi both to and from the airport, and also cleaned the apartment during our stay. We were left to get on with our holiday, which was great, but we always had the comfort of knowing that we would be able to ask them anything at any time.

I would definitely recommend the Athenaeum Holiday Apartments, and we will definitely be returning at some point. It was great value for such a great apartment.

Thank you for your review. It was an absolute pleasure to have you stay and we look forward to seeing you both again soon.
