The Paphos region
The district of Paphos has the most varied landscape on the island of Cyprus with coastal and mountain villages (each unique), often surrounded by orchards of citrus fruit, olive and almond trees, vinyards full of grapes, and banana plants. The villages are also worth exploring for local museums, crafts, traditions and architecture. There are also numerous uncrowded beaches all along the coast.
The Paphos district is on the West coast of of the island and offers an excellent climate, the most pleasant (coolest) in the summer and warm in the winter. Paphos town (once the Roman capital of Cyprus is listed UNESCO heritage) and district is also know for its historical and archaeolgical sites and museums. This harbour town is lively, friendly with many shops, places to eat, drink and relax and also Paphos Castle where concerts, opera and other entertainment can be enjoyed in the open during the summer.
Paphos offers several excellent golf courses, The Secret Valley Golf Club (6120 meters and 18 holes plays to par 72 ) is 18 km east of Paphos, the most recently opened is the luxurious Aphrodite Hills (6299 meters and plays to par 70). Tsada Golf Course (6060 meters and 18 holes, plays to par 72) is the nearest, it is just 25 minutes away from Polis. As it is on an elevated position 550 meters above sea level it benefits from cool breezes during the summer months.
Monasteries (making their own wine and sweets) and churches of interest and beauty are well worth a visit and are located in every region of Cyprus.
Polis, which in Greek means town, is one of the most beautiful, authentic and friendly towns of Cyprus. This historic town has its own character, interesting buildings, museum, a beautiful church and the main square which provides a real social hub. All expected amenities are provided, with many excellent restaurants, bars, shops, internet cafees, banks etc.. In the warm summer evenings Outside entertainment by local performers is often available for all to enjoy.
Dotted with citrus groves, overlooking turquoise seas, Polis is the least developed beach resort in the South of Cyprus. It is the perfect base for a relaxing, interesting stay and also for an activity holiday, offering easy access to the varied landscapes of rocky promontories, lush meadows, rugged forests, sleepy monasteries and quiet beaches all along the coast in this largely unspoiled western region of Cyprus.
The 'Blue Flag' sandy beach at Chrysochous bay (with Taverna, bar and sunbeds), close to a small forest of Pine trees, is the nearest to the apartment. The new walk and cycle path that runs along this beach from Polis to the fishing port Latchi is ideal for evening strolls and for selecting your preferred spot on this beach - where the sea is calm and sheltered and hence ideal for swimming.
Visit Latchi with its great harbour-side fish restaurants and marina where water sports, scuba diving and boating excursions are available activities. Walk or cycle to Latchi using the path along the beach (shortest distance) or drive/cycle along the road to Latchi which also has its own cycle/walking promenade.
Polis is near romantic tourist sites, close to where Aphrodite, goddess of love and beauty, used to meet her beloved Adonis. It looks across Chrysochou Bay to the nearby Akamas Peninsula, a spectacular nature conservation area complete with unique coves for sunbathing and swimming and hiking trails steeped in mythological legends.
Polis is also an ideal base for easy access to the surrounding coastal and mountain villages which offer authentic Greek Cypriot hospitality, culture and cuisine, while unique flora and fauna abound. It is within easy reach of bustling towns like Paphos (30 mins drive only), the Trodos mountains and also the airport. Activities like Jeep Safaris, Quad biking, Scuba diving, Go Karting, Coastal cruises, horse riding, water and amusement parks and golf courses are easily accessable from Polis.
For some extra pampering visit the Natural Healing Spa resort in nearby Miliou (Ayii Anargyri Natural Healing Spa Resort) next to Miliou's healing springs (10-15 mins by car).
Tour buses and/or local buses provide trips to places of interest, but for independent visits a car is highly recommended.
