The Paphos region
Cyprus is an island of history and culture that enjoys 340 days of sunshine a year. Maximum temperatures in Paphos range from 19 degrees in December to 29 degrees in July with many months having little or no rainfall. Paphos old town (a 15-minute drive from Villa Olivia) is full of interesting places to visit, such as Tomb of the Kings or the ancient harbour and fort, now lined with picturesque restaurants and tavernas. Paphos also has a good shops and vibrant nightlife. Cyprus is a former British Crown colony and the good news is that the Cypriots drive on the left.
Hire a car and drive around the island - head over the scenic Troodos mountains through the vineyards and up to Latchi village with its picturesque fishing harbour and fantastic fish restaurants, or head East towards Limassol or the capital Nicosia.
The Secret Valley Resort area
Within 15 minutes is the sandy beach of Pissouri, which also has excellent local tavernas and restaurants frequented by locals and visitors alike. Kouklia and Mandria are the two closest villages and great places to eat - at a fraction of the price of central Paphos. Kouklia now has 8 tavernas serving excellent, fresh local food, with Cypriot night on a Thursday, and Mandria has four. Both are well worth visiting
The prestigious Secret Valley Clubhouse a couple of minutes from the villa is open to the public and the terrace is a great place to relax and enjoy a drink, brunch or lunch whilst watching the golfers struggle below.
Just 6 or 7 minutes up the road is the 5 star resort of Aphrodite Hills where you can enjoy a game of golf or tennis, relax at the spa, go shopping or visit one of the bars, restaurants and there's even a pizzeria.
If golf is your game, then Villa Olivia is in the place for you! There's Secret Valley Golf Club, a challenging course set in a scenic valley surrounded by spectacular rock formations and mature trees. 7 or 8 minutes up the road is the 5-star Aphrodite Hills Golf Course and Resort, which also has restaurants, cafes, shopping, tennis and a spa. 20 minutes into the hills is Minthis Hills Golf Club, designed by Donald Steel. It is a 6,060 metre par 72 course which, at an altitude of 550 metres, which benefits from cooling breezes.
The new Elea, designed by Nick Faldo, near Paphos Airport is the latest addition to golf clubs in the area and the luxurious clubhouse is worth a visit for the impressive surroundings and excellent food. Non-golfers welcome.

This was our first time hiring a villa, usually we have gone on package holidays but we will never do that again. The Villa was wonderful, the sense of space and furnishings were to a high standard and having our own pool was fantastic we used it everyday and just had a great time relaxing. Everything that was advertised was available and more. The welcome pack was so appreciated when we arrived, and Robert and Susan were fantastic in looking out for us. Robert managed to show us how to tune the satellite in order that we watched the Euro's. If you are looking for a lovely villa with pool, that is so relaxing and quiet then this place is for you, we have two teenage boys who just loved it and never once said they were bored. Thanks for all your help Patricia.
