The ancient sites and archaeology preserve this noble past and the harbour area builds on this, mixing old and new, to provide a perfect holiday destination in the sun.
Cyprus is famous as the birth place of the goddess Aphrodite, Venus in Roman mythology. Legend says that she emerged from the sea at Aphrodite's Rock.
If you want to get out and explore some fantastic scenery take a trip to the Akamas Peninsula, Polis or the Troodos Mountains. The Akamas is an untouched part of Cyprus with unspoilt coastline and is a traditional seaside location.
Paphos combines ancient history with a cosmopolitan modern tourist resort. The area by the coast is Kato Paphos and boasts a pretty little harbour and plenty of open air cafes and bars. Further inland is the old Paphos town known by the locals as Ktima with its narrow streets, hustle and bustle, covered markets and typical Cypriot atmosphere.
The Troodos Mountain range is a 1 hour car ride away. The highest peak is mount Olympus at 6154ft. There are 4 main slopes, all with lifts, from beginner Hera to Advanced Zeus. Skiing lasts from January through to April and where else can you can ski in the morning and be back to swim in the afternoon. In the summer Troodos allows for relaxing walks and majestic views.
Paphos airport is approx 30 mins from the villa by car. Renting a car is the easiest way of getting around.
Driving is on the same side of the road as England and the roads are generally good and signs are in English as well as Greek.
Threading through the banana plantations, a short drive along the coast and up from Paphos will bring you to the traditional hillside village of Peyia. One of the prettiest and least spoilt villages in the area, it overlooks Coral Bay and the Paphos coast.
The village has charming little streets and alleyways, with interesting old houses set off by colourful flowers and citrus trees, and a beautiful old church. Peyia also has many lively tavernas but manages to preserve a friendly local atmosphere and are very reasonably priced.

"Relaxing, idyllic and the perfect getaway ."
This is the third time that we have stayed at the vill Iris. It is very well presented throughout with modern furnishings and all the appliances required. The outdoor area is a good size and the pool … More

A stunning Villa in a lovely location. Perfect for a young family with plenty of room all round. The views from the main bedroom are unbelievable. The pool is in the sun all day and spotlessly clean. Andy and Julie who maintain the Villa are great and looked after us very well. They could not of been more helpful... Thank you. Sean and Sarah thank you for letting us share your lovely Villa.

"Lovely villa well maintained"
We have stayed here 3 times now and we still love it. The villa is well equipped, clean and comfortable. The surrounding area is quiet and peaceful yet you are only a few minutes away from busier areas.
The management company were extremely helpful and friendly.

"Absolutely lovely, amazing all round!"
Booking with Sean and Sarah was quick and easy. They sent me all details we needed quickly via email as we booked last minute.
Whilst looking for the Villa we actually drove away from Villa Iris because we thought that it must not be ours as it was far too nice for the price, but it was ours and it was lovely!
As there was only 2 of us it was very spacious, but still would be great for a larger family.
The villa itself is just gorgeous and very modern. The pool is really big, with walk down steps into the pool which is ideal.
There is a bbq to cook on, which we did many nights.
Everything we needed was supplied for us from towels to dishwashing tablets.
The view from the pool and master room is amazing, and perfect to wake up too.
I have already old Sean that we will be back!
Angela the english lady who lives next door looks after the villa for Sean and Sarah whilst they arent there and she is really helpful and lovely and it was nice to know that somebody was there if we needed them.
I was a little worried about getting the deposit back after reading previous reviews, however it was sent back within days of us returning home.
Absolutely no problems at all.
Thanks again Steve & Sara!

"The best holiday accommodation one could wish for."
I booked this superb property for a weeks family holiday and for the time my son was getting married in the beautiful village of Peyia. I was amazed at how well this property was presented, it is by far the best I have ever stayed in. It was absolutely spotless, and was equipped very well inside. The position is superb, near to the village and just a short drive to the sandy beaches of Coral Bay.
The management company were very accommodating with directions and even took us up to the church for our son's wedding.... Amazing service!!!
The owners were unbelievably helpful with the booking and extras we wanted during our weeks holiday. Nothing seemed to much to organise!!! They even organised my food shopping for the whole week!!
The best week ever and very highly recommended.

"excellent family villa"
Very friendly and helpful when booking villa and couldn't do enough to help us have a great holiday.

Swimming pool was well LUSH.
For a relaxing holiday everything was reasonably to hand.
Location was prefect for us near to beaches and with pool at villa.
Restaurants were reasonably priced and very friendly, with excellent food and alcohol.
Was plenty big enough for our family of 5. (2 adults plus 3 teenagers)
Would like to thank Sean and Sarah for sharing their villa with us.
We will be back soon

"Lovely Villa ..... but..."
We really enjoyed our stay in Villa Iris, the directions given looked scary but were actually really easy to follow, we arrived at night and when we arrived (without getting lost) i had forgotten to bring the code for the key safe - a 1st for us - therefore i had to call the management company at gone midnight - Sue & Ray were very helpful for the entire stay and didnt seem to mind that i had called so late.
The villa itself is lovely but the outside area around the pool is a little cramped, i think you would struggle with more than 4 people - some of the kitchen utensils need replacing for example none of the knives were sharp and there wasnt a grater but having said that there is plenty of plates and glasses etc. The beds were all extremely comfy but squeaked very badly the master bed was the worst for this - it actually woke you up every time you turned over.
We were told before we left that the area was suffering power cuts, luckily we never had one the whole time we were away, but the TV lost its Sky signal every night at about 9.00 ish - we asked about this and we told that its a common problem - which is fine we dont go on holiday to watch TV but if you like to put the TV on when the children are in bed etc it can be quite annoying.
A car is a must as there are no shops or restaurants within easy walking distance, also you need to drive to the beach and the centre of Paphos etc.
But the biggest complaint i have by far is the security deposit you have to pay - we have rented several private properties so i understand that a deposit is required - i sent this when the full balance was due (an extra £200.00) - we left the villa and another renter was going in 4 days later - however normally under the terms given - you have to wait 15 days for the money to be returned... why is this when another family were in so soon... anyway thats the terms so i accepted them however i emailed just before the 15 days and was told the cheque would be sent that weekend, the 15 days passed, 4 days later i emailed again and the cheque wasnt mentioned however i was asked to send my bank details so a transfer could be arranged, i didnt want to send my details so i requested the cheque to be sent again, eventually this arrived 5 days later with a post mark of the day before, so from leaving the villa it took 24 days for the cheque to be returned & then i have to wait for it to clear, this is sent from the UK where the owners live not Cyprus.
Overall a great holiday, but if we ever return to Paphos i would look for a different villa.
