The Paphos region
Paphos, the Capital of the west and positively teeming with history is Paphos, site of the island's second international airport. The resort town has as its focal point a charming fishing harbour by Paphos Fort, lined with open-air cafes and tavernas that serve a tempting menu of the day's catch.
It was on Paphos shoreline that the mythological Goddess Aphrodite was born a legend that spawned a massive wave of cult worship from neighbouring countries that lasted several centuries. The large rock that juts from the sea is known as 'Petra tou Romiou' - The Venus Rock - while the Baths of Aphrodite at Polis also echoes her apparent penchant for the island. At Palaepafos, Koukiia lie the remains of the Goddess's earliest Sanctuary.
Another 'first' for Paphos was its early recognition of Christianity. While under Roman rule in 45 A.D., it was here that Saint Paul converted the first ruler to the faith.
The legacy from its remarkable history adds up to nothing less than an open museum, so much so that UNESCO simply added the whole town to its World Cultural Heritage List. Among the treasures unearthed, are the remarkable mosaics in the Houses of Dionysos, Theseus and Aion, beautifully preserved after 16 centuries under the soil. Then there are the mysterious vaults and caves, the Tombs of the Kings, the Pillar to which Saint 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 many years now for its special delight 'loukoumi .
Ago Neofytos Monastery, famous for its 'Encleistra', Enclosure, carved out of the mountain by the hermit himself, 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. A small museum dedicated to Archbishop Makarios, first president of Cyprus, is found at Pano Panagia. From here it is a rewarding drive to the majestic Cedar Valley, home of the indigenous Cyprus horned sheep, the Moufflon.
Lempa village can be singled out as one with particular historic significance. In its pretty setting near the sea, Lempa's link with prehistory is the site of a chalcolithic settlement. Today the faithful reconstruction of several dwellings, gives an insight into chalcolithic life on the island.
Further north lies the resort-town of Polis, overlooking the beautiful Chrysochou Bay with its charming fishing refuge of Latsi. The relatively unspoilt state of the countryside and villages make the area a real delight for the walker and naturalist.
The 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. This is the gateway to the Peninsula of Akamas, a natural wilderness of incredible beauty with breathtaking gorges, spectacular coastlines and enjoyable nature trails.
The Sea Caves / Coral Bay/ St George Bay Pegeia area
There is a variety of things to do in and around the surrounding area of Paphos.
If you like to walk, there is the Akamas nature reserve, with views of the coast from Lara Beach to Latchi. There are several kilometres of off road tracks from Neo Choiro to Peyia (25km) along the hill tops.
If water sports such as scuba diving or you can even rent a boat to drive as long as you have a drivers licence, you do not need a boating licence to drive it. You can find all this and more at Latchi Harbour near Polis only a short drive away. Closer to Paphos there are jet ski and boats to hire at Coral Bay
Don’t feel like driving your own boat then why not take one of the organised boat trips and see Cyprus from the sea. There are glass bottom boats which will take you for a trip around the bay and the Akamas peninsula.
Did you know for instance that Cyprus is famous for the Aphrodite Festival, which presents an opera annually using the castle at the harbour as its backdrop? Every year for 3 nights an amazing production takes place. If you prefer to stay on dry land then how about skiing! Yes, you can even ski here in the winter months! If you would like to head up the mountain and put on your skis look at this website for chance to ski down Troodos Mountain and see the breathtaking views.
Paphos bird park is just off the road close to St Georges Harbour. There is also Georges Ranch for horse riding and a reptile park close by.
If you prefer to stay on the ground and relax by the lakes fishing, there are plenty of lakes, the closest being Mavrokolymbos, which is near to Coral Bay.
If you want an adrenaline rush then bungee jumping, rock climbing, mountain biking and jeep safaris in the Troodos Mountains.Just past the turning for Coral Bay, on the right is go-karting arena
Free transfers for visitors to Paphos Waterpark arriving by bus on routes 11 or 15( which pass through the Tomb of the Kings road), please present your bus ticket to the cashier at the Water Park ticket desk to claim a full refund of your fare http://www.aphroditewaterpark.com/index.htm
Paphos is included on the UNESCO World Heritage list. At the Kato Paphos Archaeological Park there are remains from prehistoric times through to the middle ages. This area is next to Paphos Harbour and contains the Basilica of Khrysopolitissa dating from 4th/7th century AD, the mosaics of the Houses of Aion, Dionysus, Orpheus and Theseus. The Tomb of the Kings burial site
There are monasteries in the Troodos mountains which can be visited by coach trip, jeep safari, or drive yourself in your hire car http://www.kykkos-museum.cy.net/index2.html

As seasoned travellers, staying in some of the best and worst hotels around the globe, we decided to try the 'villa hire'. I can honestly say that we were not disappointed. Using the directions supplied by e-mail we easily found the villa and arrived without any fuss.
The villa itself has such a homely feel about it and the unimpaired views of the sea are extremely relaxing. I travelled with my wife and 3 year old boy and the lack of swimming pool meant that we didn't need to feel paranoid every time he went out the front door. (front and back gardens have gates on them). Bedrooms are have plenty of storage space and comfy. Although the master bedroom felt even comfortable due to a very nice duvet cover. This was apprecated bcause the weather in March can be a bit 'hit and miss' and we did catch a couple of squalls that certainly shook the trees about.
There aren't really a lot of tavernas / cafe's in the area so it's definitely prudent to have a well stocked fridge at night. You can do your shopping at a place called phillipop's on the main road into/from coral bay.
All in all - the villa did exactly what was required and with no concerns about anything, it certainly made for a nicerexing holiday. We'll definitely be coming again.

We stayed for several weeks during the winter period, but we were warm and cosy. We loved the family kitchen. We basically used the villa as a bed and breakfast. As we were out each day trying to see as much as possible of the island, On both counts we were not disappointed. Cyprus makes a wonderful holiday destination and Villa Cresta provides you with good home comforts. Roger is a thoroughly nice person and responds quickly to all correspondence. I recommend this villa and location, I just add you must have a rental car. The buses are very good but by pass Sea Caves.

After a midnight drive from Paphos airport we arrived at Villa Cresta. Darkness shrouded the the fantastic that were to delight us in the morning. A welcoming light had been left on and we opened the door to what can only be described as a perfect holiday getaway. Having read the other reviews I endorse everything that has been said. If you want an exciting night life you have to travel - if you want peace and quiet stay home, it's all there for you.
