The Paphos region
Paphos is a fascinating area of Cyprus with something for everyone. Beach lovers may enjoy Aphrodite's Rock, Coral Bay, Pissouri Bay or Lara Bay (look for Turtle nests on the beach). A cosmoplitan array of restaurants and pavement cafes may be found in Paphos itself and more traditional restaurants in the local villages. The Harbour at Kato (Old) Paphos offers opportunities for boat trips, fishing trips or diving.
The area is steeped in history. At the House of Dionysos and at Curium (along the coast) can be seen the remains of Greek and Roman buildings, an amphitheatre and magnificent mosaics. The Tombs of the Kings, spread over a vast area, are impressive underground tombs dating back to the 4th century BC. Carved out of solid rock - some are decorated with Doric pillars. High officials rather than Kings were buried here, but the magnificent tombs gave the locality its name. Kykkos Monastery and Agios Neofytos Monastery are well worth a visit.
Local attractions for children include Paphos Bird & Animal Park, Paphos Go Karting Centre, Mini Golf, Aphrodite Waterpark, the Adonis Baths and Waterfall.
Ascot Tours will pick you up from the Villa and take you on a days tour up in to the Troodos Mountains or the Akamas peninsular. They use Landrovers which allow for some real off road driving and the tours are well designed to give you a real taste of the real Cyprus.
Golfers are spoilt for choice with courses at Secret Valley, Aphrodite Hills, Tsada and the new Nick Faldo designed course - Elea.
Walkers may enjoy walking along the coastal path to Aphrodite's Beach or a drive up to the Troodos mountains where there are many trails and picnic areas.
Secret Valley Resort
The Villa overlooks the Secret Valley golf course with views across to Aphrodite Hills. Its position provides magnificent panoramic views of the Mediterranean sea and Mountains. Only a few minutes drive from the sea, there is a nature reserve and nature trail which follows the coastline to Aphrodite beach. The area is ideal for walkers and joggers.
A car is advisable but within a short driving distance there are plenty of activities:
Kouklia Village: Is only 5 minutes drive and has a number of traditional tavernas, at least 2 minimarkets, and an icecream parlour. The entrance to the famed Aphrodite Sanctuary, a temple which was built to worship the goddess Aphrodite, is also close to the village square.
Mandria Village - Several tavernas and a very popular fish and chip restaurant.
Aphrodite Hills - only a few minutes drive. Golf, Tennis, Spa, several restaurants from casual to fine dining, Costa Coffee and a small supermarket.
Pissouri and Pissouri Bay - a good selection of restaurants, bars, shops, water sports, including wind surfing and jet skis
Paphos - approx 15 minutes drive and offers, a large variety of restaurants, bars and shops. Water Park, Mini golf, Bird Park and Zoo, and Ten Pin Bowling.
Coral Bay - approx 20 minutes drive - popular beach with watersports
Aphrodite's Rock - Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty is said to have emerged from the sea at this spot in 1200BC. Today a pebbly but stunning beach with rock formations rising from the sea.
Troodos Mountains - stunning scenary and in the Winter months you can ski here in the morning and be on the beach in the afternoon. We highly recommend Ascot Tours day trip in to the Troodos mountains with off road driving.
