The Paphos region
Paphos is the birth place Aphrodite the Greek Goddess of love and beauty and is entwined in Greek mythology and has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage sight because of all its ancient sights and history. Paphos Town has all the restaurants and night-life that you would expect from a modern tourist town but also offers access to be ancient cultural heritage sights and modern tourist attractions.
The focal point in Paphos Town is the picturesque harbour packed with yachts, pleasure boats and fishing boats. This is the place to come for morning coffee, lunch or an evening stroll. At night this area is bustling with activity and is a very pleasant place to eat and socialise.
Take the opportunity to explore the Troodos Mountains or the nearby Akamas Penninsula and Bath of Aphrodite (Goddess Venus), take in the scenery and aromas of the Cedar Valley and don't forget that camera.
There are several beaches within the district including the beach in Kato Paphos, Faros beach and the magnificent Coral Bay. These are best reached by car.
Activities on offer in the Paphos Region include:
Watersports & Waterparks [www.aphroditewaterpark.com]. Free bus available from Paphos Town Centre.
Skiing (In the winter)
Cyprus is renowned for its nearly all year round sunshine and moderate temperatures in the winter months making it a popular year round tourist destination.
Within a very short walking distance the Argaka village provides a selection of mini markets, a bakery, an Irish bar offering live entertainment and welcoming good value tavernas. Argaka offers the perfect location for complete relaxation with the advantage of being only a short drive away from the more lively Polis and Latchi. The unspoilt coastline and countryside offers an ideal location for exploration either cycling or on foot.
About 10 minutes drive from the apartment lies the small town of Polis with its attractive cobbled street and main square where it is a pleasure to linger with a cool drink and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere. The town offers many restaurants, bars and cafes as well as a bank, post office, pharmacy, doctor, dentist, hairdresser, bike/car hire and many interesting souvenir shops and jewellers.
Just a few kilometers further west is the small town of Latchi with its attractive harbour/marina and well known restaurants serving a wide choice of food including many varieties of freshly caught fish. Sit in one of the harbourside restaurants/tavernas and just people watch. If you are feeling energetic try some of the water sports or take a trip on one of the glass bottom boats out along the Akamas Peninsula and see nature at its best. Take your swimming costume as the boat may moor in a wonderful cove to allow you to swim or snorkel.
For those who enjoy the game of golf the closest course is Minthis Hills (Formerly Tsada) Golf Club, Par 72 - 6,855 yards and located amongst vineyards, next to a 12th century monastery it is bathed in cooling sea breezes in the summer season. Minthis Hills is a challenging course which has an excellent club house, swimming pool with all changing facilities and is only about a 30 minute drive away.
For those who want to go further a field within an hours drive you will find the Secret Valley Golf Club, Par 72 - 6,737 yards. A championship course surrounded by stunning rock formations and mature trees.
The Aphrodite Hills Golf Club, Par 71 - 6,855 yards. Designed by Cabell Robinson another fine example of a championship course built on two plateaux which has spectacular views of the sea.
An exiting new project is currently being constructed (2.5km from our apartment) just outside the popular town of Polis. Two 18 hole golf courses are being built on a large area of land. Limni was a former copper mine and is now being converted into one of the premier golf resorts in the whole of the Mediterranean. The project starts by the sea, moving up a large valley and into the hills behind. One course will be designed by Gary Player Design and the other by Nicklaus Design. Limni Golf Resort will undoubtedly be in a class of its own. For further information on progress copy 'golf course development in limni cyprus' into your internet search engine.
