"The villa was excellent. Location lovely with sea view and very peaceful. We recommend Imogens Inn at Kathikas to everyone. Lovely ambience, great food, good hosts and the best Tiramisu we've ever tried. You need to order the Tiramisu at least 2 days in advance to be sure it's available. The service from yourselves was excellent. Hannah was great even after the early morning call. The villa was kept spotless throughout our stay and linen etc. changed weekly. We can't praise them enough. Thank you again for a most enjoyable holiday, the villa was lovely and the service from yourselves and the local managers was second to none. We will recommend you to our friends.''
The Paphos region
Paphos combines ancient history with a cosmopolitan, modern tourist resort. The area by the coast is known as Kato Paphos and boasts a pretty little harbour and plenty of open air cafes and bars. Further inland is the old town of Paphos, known by the locals as Ktima. With its narrow streets, hustle and bustle, covered market and typically Cypriot atmosphere, it is well worth a visit. As a consequence, Paphos is on UNESCO's World Cultural Heritage list.
Cyprus is famous as the birth place of the goddess Aphrodite, Venus in Roman mythology. She is known as the Ancient Greek goddess of love and beauty. Legend says that she emerged from the sea at Aphrodite’s Rock in a surge of sea foam.
This prime positioned holiday Villa is within an affluent area known as 'Sea Caves' and Akamas Peninsular, a protected area of outstanding natural beauty, yet still close to Coral Bay (3km) and Peyia Village (4km) with their traditional bars and restaurants. The property is but a 5-10 minute walk to a few of the best known local tavernas in the area which provide good food, hospitality and views within a peaceful and relaxing setting, next to some of the areas many impressive banana plantations.
The newly completed municipal playpark is also in easy walking distance.
The Sea Caves area , like much of Paphos, was once rural and barren land but over recent years the Sea Caves area has changed dramatically. Now the Sea Caves area is one of the finest residential areas in Cyprus, offering some of the most exclusive villas in the island. This is not surprising when you consider its breathtaking rugged Cypriot coastline and small sandy coves with crystal clear Mediterranean waters. Sunsets in the region are simply magical.
Proceeding along from the Sea Caves you come to the pretty, tiny picturesque fishing harbour of St George with a small sand/shingle beach. St George, like Sea Caves, is a perfect spot for snorkelling and scuba diving or topping up your sun tan. We strongly recommend tasting the local speciality "fish meze" in one of the selection of small family run tavernas at St George and the dramatic sunsets are worth the visit alone from any area of this amazing coastline.
Situated 12kms from Paphos on the west coast of Cyprus and just 3km from Sea Caves, Coral Bay is a delightful resort renowned for its superb (blue flag) sandy beaches. The main thoroughfare of Coral Bay is lined with a small but ample selection of shops, restaurants, banks and bars giving you everything you need for a relaxing holiday without losing any of its local charm.
Life in Coral Bay tends to be based around the sandy bay with calm shallow waters, also offering a wide selection of water sports, it is perfect for a day out for all the family. Other things to do in the area include Paphos Bird Park, Reptile Park, Horse Riding, Akamas Peninsular & Lara Beach Nature Reserve (famous for turtles), Hiking/Walking, Buggy Safaris, 4 x 4 Safaris, Sailing and many more. Amusement and water parks in Paphos are also easily accessible from the area, as are numerous archaeological ruins such as the Tombs of the Kings the mosaics and the Christian Catacombs.
Buses travel all around Paphos and surrounding villages. The current deal of a day pass is 2 euros making this a great value way to see around the area.
