Review submitted by Richard from Oxford - (Submitted: 10/06/2013)
"We enjoyed our holiday in Cyprus very much. The villa Alicia was lovely and we thought it was in a great position, we've never been somewhere so peaceful, but not isolated. We enjoyed all our meals out but especially enjoyed the Grande restaurant in Peyia, it is just off the main street, the people are very welcoming and the food was very good. We also enjoyed a night out in Yianni's in Kathikas, we went Tuesday night which is Greek dancing night with a buffet style meal, we can highly recommend this. Latchi is also good if you wish to hire a boat or go on a boat trip, bars and restaurants aren't bad either. If fact we never had a bad meal/trip out at all. The agent was good and we found the service provided by you very good.''
The Paphos region
Cyprus has more to offer the visitor than any other Mediterranean island, a fascinating blend of landscape, climate, history and culture. There is a seemingly endless coastline of sandy coves and beaches washed gently by crystal clear blue waters.
Birthplace of Aphrodite and in Roman times the capital of Cyprus, Paphos is one of the most beautiful and ancient towns of Cyprus and is situated on the southwest coast. Sheltered from the north by the Troodos Mountains, it has the healthiest climate in the Mediterranean. Paphos Harbour with it's ancient castle, marine and water sports centres, is lined with colourful restaurants serving fresh fish and marine delicacies. Nearby are archaeological sites, rich with antiquities, providing an interest away from the usual - in fact UNESCO has included Paphos on it's World Cultural Heritage List.
There are no private beaches on the island and Cyprus boasts dozens of European Blue Flag awards. The secluded sandy beaches are perfect for snorkelling and every watersport you can imagine.
If you want excitement then you may want to visit one of three world class water parks within easy reach that rival any in the world. Or, if you want something more relaxing there are 4 golf courses within 30 minutes drive.
Eating out in Cyprus is not only extremely cheap but also it's virtually impossible to eat badly. A lot of the locals and tourists too, don't bother cooking at home they just eat out. You can get full English breakfasts for around 5 euros and even have a 20 to 30 course meal, the famous 'Cyprus Meze', for around 15 euros.
There truly is just too much of Cyprus to write about here. The best thing is to just make the effort to visit and we guarantee you will have the holiday of a lifetime. If you want any further information at all please use the e-mail facility and we will get back to you straight away.
Winding up through the banana plantations after a short drive along the coast road from Paphos brings you to Peyia. Villa Alicia has a delightful position on the hillside in Peyia overlooking the sea at Coral Bay.
The village of Peyia is one of the most picturesque and popular villages in the Paphos area. Peyia is spread over a large area with the village centre having many good amenities including bars, restaurants, tavernas, shops and banks.
Peyia is a typical Cypriot village. A beautiful ancient church forms the heart of the village while the narrow streets and alleyways are full of old and interesting houses adorned with colourful flowers and citrus trees. Peyia is still largely unspoilt with lively tavernas and friendly locals. You can also buy all your provisions including fresh meat and bread in the shops in Peyia. The early morning aroma of freshly baked bread, sweet and savoury local pastries and cakes coming from the Peyia bakery is almost too much to resist!
From Peyia the attractions in Paphos and renowned Paphos Aphrodite Water Park are also easily accessible, as are numerous archaeological ruins in Paphos such as the Tombs of the Kings and Paphos Archaeological Park.
