The Paphos region
It was at Paphos that the mythological Goddess Aphrodite was born a legend, spawning a wave of cult worship from neighbouring countries that lasted several centuries. The large rock that juts from the sea is known as "Aphrodite's Rock" while the Baths of Aphrodite at Polis also echoes her love for the island. At Palaepafos (Koulklia) lie the remains of the Goddess' earliest Sanctuary. Many historical treasures that have been discovered in Paphos are, the remarkable mosaics in the Houses of Dionysos, Theseus and Aion, beautifully preserved after 16 centuries under the soil.
There are the vaults and caves, Tombs of the Kings, the Pillar to which St. Paul was allegedly tied and whipped, the ancient Odeon Theatre and other places of interest including the Byzantine Museum and the District Archaeological Museum. Geroskipou with its remarkable five-domed Byzantine church of Agia Paraskevi, and its Folk Art Museum is a village known for its special delight 'loukoumi'. Agios Neofytos Monastery, boasts some of the finest Byzantine frescoes of the 12th and 15th centuries.
Chrysorrogiatissa Monastery makes its own range of wines using home-grown grapes. At Pano Panagia there is a small museum dedicated to the first president of Cyprus, Archbishop Makarios. From here it is a rewarding drive to the majestic Cedar Valley.
Tourism in Paphos is a recent development, four tourist areas have already been established; Paphos town which extends to Geroskipou, south-east and Chlorakas-Kisonerga to the north; Polis which extends to Latsi and Neo Chorio to the west; Coral Bay and Tala. Centres are also being developed in Drouseia, Agios Georgios (Pegeia) and Tsada.
With low-lying scenery around Paphos, much of it cultivated with banana plantations and backed by the gentle foothills of the western Troodos range, has an attractively open quality to it. The relatively unspoilt state of the countryside make the area a real delight for the walker and naturalist. While the sun drenched beaches are lapped by turquoise waters making the area a fabulous place to relax and an ideal base to explore this jewel in the Mediterranean.
The Polis / Steni area
This beautiful region with its breathtaking views and miles and miles of picturesque coastline makes this a wonderful setting for a villa holiday. This area also provides a variety of road-side restaurants and taverns offering everything from traditional Greek food to international cuisine. The Steni valley is located near coastal resort of Polis, which has become a charming and active venue for people wanting the smaller tourist areas on the island. It has a picturesque square full of lively Cypriot bars and restaurants, with a few shops in between.
This is a perfect venue to while away the hours enjoying delicious food and local life. Following the coastline to the west, lies the simple village of Latchi, with its long beach, small harbour and large choice of traditional fish restaurants dotted along the sea front. From the harbour, a variety of coastal excursions can be booked, including small boat hire for fishing trips. The sporting and adventure facilities in the area are endless and include diving, snorkelling, exciting jeep safaris and balloon flights.
A ten minute drive from the villa takes you to thew best trout fishing on the island at a local resevoir. The Baths of Aphrodite are among many famous tourist attractions in the area and a drive to the Troodos mountains provides a beautiful and fascinating spectacle of Cyprus.
The resort town of Polis overlooks the beautiful Chrysochou Bay with its charming fishing refuge of Latsi. Cradled by rugged mountains, centred in the Chrysochous Bay and surrounded by a patchwork of citrus groves and vineyards, the sleepy town of Polis has managed to doze through the property boom that's transformed much of the south coast. The town's whitewashed sugar cube houses, plump Orthodox Church domes and shady courtyards are a reminder of a Cyprus that's fast disappearing and much of Polis' charm lies in watching local life tick slowly by.
Polis is centred round a paved plaza that hosts a colourful daily market showcasing the best local produce. At sunset the market stalls are replaced with restaurant tables piled high with delicious platefuls of meze and fresh local fish, creating a true Cypriot atmosphere that gives you an appetite for the real Cyprus.
The nearby Akamas Peninsular is an untouched wilderness laced with hiking trails and secluded coves, an area reserved for conservation and of great natural interest. Off shore the waters are a glassy mosaic of greens and blues that promise some of the best snorkelling and diving on the island.
