The Paphos region
Paphos is the smallest of 4 cities of the island, with a population reaching just 30,000. This is about a 40 minute drive from the villas.
Paphos has many attractions which make it popular, among which are its ancient mosaic floors, its beautiful old harbour, its modern hotels, bars and restaurants, situated along the seaside. You can also visit the archaeological museum, the Byzantine castle of Paphos, the Tombs of the Kings, St. Paul’s Pillar and the Temple of Aphrodite.
Holidays to Paphos are like holidays to paradise and especially for those who love history. Many people are familiar with the Greek Goddess Aphrodite and it was on the Paphos shoreline that her legend was born. Remnants of this legend can still be seen today in a number of features including The Venus Rock and the Baths of Aphrodite.
Some of the amazing places to see whilst on holidays in Paphos include Paphos Medieval Fort which is located at the harbour, Tombs of the Kings which are spread out over a vast area and are underground tombs that date back to the 4th Century BC. There are also a number of churches and museums to visit too. Travel East to see the birthplace of Aphrodite and The Kourion - an amazing spectacle of Roman living including a huge ampitheatre overlooking the sea. The Kourion boasts some amazing sandy beaches too.
For the young, or young at heart, there is a Waterpark, Go Karting, hire quad bikes ...... the list is endless.
For the golfing enthusiast there are four fantastic courses all within half an hours drive of the villa - the nearest being about 5 minutes away.
Holidays to Paphos will never be boring either. Besides the usual attractions, there are so many museums, caves, and tombs to explore not to mention local art, vineyards, banana plantations, and much more.
Wherever you go there are amazing photo opportunities and that 340 days of sunshine to lap up too.
The idyllic village of Mandria enjoys especially fertile conditions and is surrounded by peanut, orange and clementine groves, banana trees and watermelon plantations, all under the backdrop of the breathtaking Troodos mountains. In a few minutes you can walk to the secluded coves of Mandria Bay, an unspoilt beach with warm, shallow water, perfect for relaxing away from the usual tourist traps.
The Legend of Aphrodite
The area has strong links with myth and legend, especially the legend of Aphrodite - otherwise known as Venus - whose birth is said to have taken place on rocks along the coastline. Mandria is known for its fantastic variety of migratory birds and wonderfully scenic walks which are easily accessible thanks to the flat terrain around the area, as well as byzantine churches, many of which were looted as recently as the 1960s and have been restored in recent years.
Mandria is also an ideal base from which to explore the Paphos area, with its championship golf courses, ancient ruins, watersports, resort facilities, spas and nightlife within a few short miles and easy access to the motorway. Alternatively, if you prefer not to hire a car during your visit, you will find everything you need for a relaxing holiday on your doorstep within the village itself, including local supermarkets, post office, market, cash machine, fish and chip restaurant, two traditional Cypriot tavernas and many ancient monasteries and ruins. Local food is fresh, tasty and reasonably priced, and there are various annual events within the village, including saints days and the famous Peanut Festival, which are ideal for getting to know the locals.
A local bus route runs directly into Paphos for day trips, visits to the famous harbour and sightseeing - or, for those who wish to explore further afield, a 45 minute drive brings you to the Trodos Mountains, an ideal winter ski destination, or the second largest city in Cyprus, Limassol. There's even the chance to take time out with a two-day cruise to Egypt to see the pyramids.
Two churches in Mandria have been restored after being stripped bare by Turkish-Cypriots in the 1960s. The Church of the Saint Andronikos and Athanasia and The Small Church of Saint Vryeni are open to the public and organise processions in honour of their respective Saints: the festival of Saint Andronikos and Athanasia takes place annually on October 9th; Saint Vryeni is celebrated on August 30th each year.
The burial place of many ancient aristocrats lies a few kilometres away from Mandria. Known as Tombs of the Kings, this huge underground necropolis was carved in solid rock around 300 BC. Entry to the site costs less than 2 Euro.
Nearby, the town of Yeroskipou (meaning 'holy garden'), like many areas along the coast, has mythological links with the story of Aphrodite. This neighbouring town boasts a stunning Byzantine church and a folk art museum. The city of Paphos offers more stunning historical sites, including the ancient limestone acropolis which is still in use as a live entertainment venue, the 800-year old Ayios Neophytos church, Chrysoroyiatissa monastery, the byzantine fort and many ancient Christian ruins. Local myths and legends are played out in the Baths of Aphrodite and the Temple of Aphrodite.
