Smokers are welcome at Proteus,however for the comfort of our guests, the house itself is a no smoking area -we ask that smokers do so outside only.
The Limassol region
The Villa is half way between the towns of Paphos and Limassol. Paphos is a busy tourist resort with lots of bars and tavernas offering a range of food including Chinese and Indian. The major fast food outlets have branches in Paphos.
The Harbour area of Paphos, close to the old castle is picturesque with tavernas lining the quayside. There, you will also find boat hire, boat trips (full / half day or evening),fishing trips and scuba diving.Close by the harbour you will find the archaeological site - this is a 'must do' whilst there - the Roman ruins and mosaic floors are stunning.
Along the front at Paphos, pavement artists, natural sponge sellers and numerous other their goods but are not 'in your face' in any way!
Limassol is more commercialised than Paphos. The town offers all of the trips, souvenir shops and services that you will find in Paphos bit is more of an administrative centre for the region and so, is more built up and focussed on business. The Old Town area is fantastic and similar to the harbour area of Paphos. There you will find some lovely trinket shops, tavernas and bars.
Pissouri consists of two areas. Pissouri Villageis a lively, family Village with numerous bars and tavernas open from morning until late. There aren't any night clubs but the taverna owners will stay open as long as you want them to!. The standard of food is excellent with Chinese, Italian and Indian available.
The paved square is safe for children and a great place to while the evenings away. Every Wednesday night from May to October, the Village stages a Cyprus night in the square with local dancers and other acts such as the man who balances a tower of glasses on his head. Tourists and locals alike join in.
There are lots of events in the Village open air amphitheatre including dance shows, opers, military bands and tribute acts.
There are three supermarkets in the Village, a greengrocers, butchers, internet cafe and three banks with ATMs.
Pissouri Beach has a similar mix of tavernas, bars and supermarkets. The Beach itself is a blue flag beach with great amenities including changing and shower facilities and sunbed / parasol hire. There are three watersports centres at the beach offering waterskiing, boat trips, sailing, jet ski hire, towed inflatables, canoes, windsurfing and more. There is also a scuba centre.
There are four golf courses within a short drive of the Village. The two closest - Aphrodite Hills and Secret Valley are only fifteen minutes by car / taxi. The courses are excellent with stunning views and all of the usual facilities that you would expect from top - class clubs.
Also at the Aphrodite Hills Resort and at the Columbia Beach Resort (Pissouri Beach) you will find five star spa facilities with a range of treatments on offer.
