The Paphos region
Paphos airport is 40 minutes away by very good quality roads with English road signs. Visit Lysos and you won’t be disappointed.
Travel a little way (passing the pretty village of Peristerona) and you reach the larger village of Polis. There is plenty of activity to choose from, whether you wish to dine in one of the many good quality restaurants, have a coffee or lunch in the central square, hire mountain bikes, quad bikes or maybe even a boat!
The nearby Latchi beach is renowned as one of the best on this side of the island and not as crowded as the beaches in and around Paphos itself (which can be reached by car in 30 minutes or under). Latchi beach is famous for its clear blue sea, soft white sand and a great selection of watersports which are readily available. Take one of the boat rides to the ‘Blue Lagoon’, have a swim and/or snorkel, then come back to the pretty harbour/fishing port and have the famous ‘Fish Meze’ where you will be served approx 20 dishes including some of the freshest catches of the day whilst watching the world go by.
For the more adventurous, you can enter the ‘Akamas’ Nature reserve and go all the way round to ‘Lara Beach’ famous for its turtles and wonderful beach. If it is unspoilt Cyprus you are looking for, this is a great area to visit. You may even venture into the nearby villages of Miliou, Droushia and Panagia or further on to Kathikas (with its vineyards and wineries),. Other fantastic scenery can be taken in at Cedar Valley and the Troodos mountain range where in Winter, you can even ski!
Lysos is a traditional mountain village in Cyprus located only 14 km from the seaside town Polis Chrysochous, 15km from Latchi with its beaches and water sports and a 45 km drive from Paphos.
This picturesque mountain village is famous for its efforts to maintain the beauty and the traditions of Cyprus. At just under 500 metres above sea level the summers are a few degrees cooler than the fierce summer temperatures in the coastal towns.
In various locations around Lysos there are many remarkable landmark churches such as the church of Ayios Georgios built in the 13th century where frescoes of Saint Mama can be found and is 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 history.
Lysos is home to a very good traditional Cypriot taverna, with neighbouring shops and the more widely known Paradisos Hills Hotel (50m away from Mountain Breeze Villa). Paradisos Hills Hotel is a small intimate hotel with only 15 rooms and a restaurant (open for breakfast, lunch and dinner) which serves only the finest Traditional Cypriot and International Cuisine. Most of the food is locally sourced and much of it is organic and the Sunday buffet lunches are now known Island wide. Paradisos Hills Hotel also have international evenings where guests and regular customers can experience something different and test the full range of its gastronomic skills.
