The Paphos region
Paphos itself consists of two towns, each with their very own character. Ktima on the cliff (Upper Paphos) and Kato Paphos by the sea (Lower Paphos). One is virtually unchanged over the centuries and thoroughly Cypriot, while the other has grown over the last decade from a nice sleepy fishing village and harbour, into a vibrant cosmopolitan resort which is expanding and improving every year.
In Kato Paphos, (in the archaeological park), you will find fine mosaics and buildings from Greek and Roman times, plus the Harbour Castle. Close by is the church of St Paul's Pillar, where the pillar that St Paul was tied to can be found. Further down on this road are the Tombs of the Kings and Christian Catacombs.
This property is also ideally situated to easily get to all 4 golf courses in the Southern part of the island.
The Polis / Peristerona area
Peristerona is primarily an agricultural village producing cereals, olives and almonds with its wonderful climate producing many delightful fruits and vegetables such as cherries, avocado, mango, watermelons, apples, lemons and oranges in abundance. The name Peristerona derives from the Greek word for dove or pigeon (peristeri). The church, St. Barnabas and Hilarion Church, has five domes on the roof arranged in the shape of a cross, a feature only seen on one other church in the island. Peristerona is always a very green village due to the lush vegetation. It all looks particularly special in winter and spring months and is ideal for photographers, artists and those who like to walk and even hike.
In various locations around Peristerona there are many remarkable landmark churches. Ayios Georgios was built in the 13th century where frescoes of Saint Mama can be found and it’s still protected by the antiquities department. Churches such as Panayia Chryselousa constructed at the end of the 15th century with Byzantine and Gothic elements, Profitis Elias, Ayios Constantinos, Ayios Charalambos and the country church of Archangel Michael provide for a unique perspective of the village’s history.
Peristerona is situated between the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea and the spectacular mountains of Paphos Forest and the Troodos. Walking in the forests is a delight. Filled with pine trees, fruit and olive trees, wild flowers and herbs and vineyards the air is scented and the views spectacular.
The nearby village of Steni (also steeped in tradition) hosts a coffee shop with wireless internet access and a very good traditional taverna.
The nearby Latchi beach is renowned as one of the best in Cyprus and not as crowded as the beaches in and around Paphos itself. Latchi beach is famous for its clear blue sea, soft white sand and a great selection of watersports which are readily available. The watersports available at Latchi include diving, snorkelling, sailing, banana rides and a great deal more. Bring your UK driving licence and you can even hire a boat and explore the Akamas coast from the sea.

The Retreat is is situated 2.9 km off the main road between Pathos and Polis (take the turning to Periserona). A stunning drive up the road with both sides of the road covered in stunning pink and white bushes. Extremely well equipped with plenty of different places to sit at - especially outside. The pool was fabulous and by August will be the biggest godsend as it will be so hot! The BBQ with electric motor a fantastic way to cook - without someone being stuck in side! Cool and dark in side with the well designed shutters and Fly shutters on all the windows for during the day... Brilliant! The owners were discreet but when we did call were there within minutes. Lovely open views. We were able to skinny dip as the villa is not overlooked! The pictures do it justice. I would highly recommend this villa - There is a charity shop on the way to Polis where you can buy 2nd hand DVDs if you need. There is also an XBox (apparently!!). We did not turn the television on as sitting by the pool was perfect! Supermarkets 2.9 km away and you can get almost everything.
