Villa Aquarius is a stunning villa, whether it is for family fun or a romantic retreat. It has stunning sea views from the pool terrace, and to the rear, a spectacular mountain back drop with the garden overlooking 'Eagle Gorge'. Facing south and west the Villa is an excellent place to capture the stunning Cyprus Sunsets. The garden is simply paved, with local pots and Mediterranean shrubs and trees. There is a large kidney shaped swimming Pool (9mx4m) with surrounding patio with four sun loungers, terrace and gas barbeque, allowing for family alfresco dining or romantic candlelit dinners for two around the floodlit pool. There is ample parking for two cars.

The Paphos region
Paphos itself consists of two areas very diffrerent in character. Upper Paphos and Kato Paphos by the sea. The old town is traditionally Cypriot, while the other has changed over the years from a Harbour and fishing village into a vibrant resort.
In Kato Paphos ther are buildings dating back to Greek and Roman periods, as well as the Harbour Castle. Driving out of Paphos towards Coral Bay you will find the Tomb of the Kings. Further north just a short drive away, there is the Akamas Peninsula and the Turtle reserve at Lara beach as well as Latchi and Polis, newer resorst with beachfrony restaurants and sandy beaches. In the centre of the island, take a beautiful drive to the Troodos mountains, where you can even ski in the winter!
There are excellent roads making it very easy to access all areas of Cyprus but take the coast road for the scenic route to see Aphrodite's rock and the Curium amphitheatre on the outskirts of Limassol.
